Watford’s Troy Deeney critical of failure to make dominance pay against Fulham

BBC SportWatford had to settle for a draw at Fulham after Aleksandar Mitrovic struck late on to earn the hosts a point.  The Hornets punished a poor start by Fulham as Andre Gray sidefooted home inside 90 seconds and the visitors, who won their first four Premier League games of the season, dominated the first half.

skyThe home side were lucky to go in at the break only one goal down after Christian Kabasele and Gray spurned presentable openings, while it could have been even worse had referee Martin Atkinson sent off Timothy Fosu-Mensah for a studs-up tackle on Troy Deeney just past the half-hour mark.

guardianWatford’s captain now appears likely to be Gracia’s first enforced change of the season, having left Craven Cottage with his right leg in a protective boot and revealed he will require an X-ray after Fosu-Mensah’s 32nd-minute tackle.  “I may have a broken bone or two but we crack on,” Deeney said. He had still completed the 90 minutes. “I am a tough, ugly boy so it will be all right.”

TelegraphIsaac Success replaced Gray for the final 10 minutes and the Nigerian’s impact was impressive. He almost scored after cutting in from the left but was foiled by a low save from Marcus Bettinelli. Fulham also sensed more points might be on offer and Mitrovic twice went close to winning the game.

FranSo, for the second week running, we came away disappointed at the result.  I think we would all have taken a point before the game, but our first half performance was such that we should have been further ahead at half-time and, had that happened, it seemed unlikely that the home side would have been able to recover.  Instead, Fulham were still in the game at the break and Jokanović made changes that strengthened his team, who pressed harder against the Hornets who then misplaced more passes and allowed the home side to threaten more.

The Hornets NestI like Fulham. As I only live a short distance away I was able to go to several of their games last season. I find Craven Cottage a ‘proper’ football ground and have always felt like it’s a welcoming stadium to visit.  The significance of our trip this time round was of course that it was the first time former Watford Head Coach, Slavisa Jokanovic had come up against us, since he got us promoted back in 2015.  Of course, he received a warm reception from the travelling Hornets and was full of praise for the supporters in his pre-match press conference.

BBC SportAshley Young’s dramatic late volley salvaged a point for Watford after an extraordinary climax at Vicarage Road.

guardianWatford had looked on course for a much-needed first Premiership win of the season, and an escape from the relegation zone, when they led 2-0 with only 19 minutes remaining, but nerves got the better of them and they were eventually thankful for Ashley Young’s late equaliser after conceding three goals in a nightmarish 16-minute period in the second half.

10th July 2004- Friendly, Fulham 0 Watford 0

Referee Mr P Walton took the recent FIFA edict that there should be no more than six substitutions in a friendly a little far and with both sides wanting to make more changes than were officially allowed he abandoned the game at half time.  The second half continued as an ‘exhibition match’.

GT on passing the landmark of 1000 games as a manager.

BSAD imageThink back to the start of the season, when we could look at our forthcoming opponents without fear, when even our fellow Premiership casualties didn’t appear to offer a serious challenge. Our squad was as strong as any in the division, more complete and more experienced than the one that had been promoted. All we needed were performances to match.  On Saturday morning, those thoughts were finally laid to rest. Fulham are better than us, better than everyone else. Of course, the league table already provides a fairly clear indication of that…but it’s beyond doubt now.
