26th July 2011- Friendly, Brentford 0 Watford 0

Gavin Mahon made his final Watford appearance in this game over three and a half years after his penultimate one.  His last competitive appearance was on 1st Dec 2007 in the 2-1 home defeat by Burnley.  He then joined QPR, initially on loan, and played over 50 times for them.  They released him at the end of the 2010/11 season.  As he was without a club Sean Dyche allowed Mahon to train with us during the 2011/12 pre-season and he came on during this game as a second half substitute.  He eventually signed for Notts County.

Watford fielded former captain Gavin Mahon and a trialist left back during tonight’s 0-0 draw at Brentford.

1st January 2011- Championship, Watford 3 Portsmouth 0

In-form Watford powered into the Championship play-off positions with an emphatic victory over Portsmouth.

For the sake of accuracy and not getting too carried away, we must mention the two chances missed by David Nugent at either end of either half…and things might’ve been different if the first of those, following some rather hesitant defending, had ended up in the top corner rather than the Rookery. But much more typical was what occupied the rest of the ninety minutes: a game that we didn’t chase so much as gently coax, safe in the knowledge that it was ours as long as we didn’t scare it off.

1st December 2007- Championship, Watford 1 Bristol City 2

Substitute Darren Byfield’s injury-time goal saw Bristol City condemn leaders Watford to a third defeat in a week.

A whole lot better than Tuesday, for starters, but all the more frustrating that the result was the same – we didn’t half look brittle defensively throughout, however tidy some of our attacking play.

27th November 2007- Championship, Watford 1 Burnley 2

Goals by Andy Gray and Joey Gudjonsson were enough to upset top-of-the-table Watford and give Owen Coyle his first win as Burnley boss.

I guess that’s what nine-point cushions are for.  But we need to instill some variety in our attacking play before Saturday;  it should take more to stop us playing than doubling up on our wide midfielders.

10th November 2007- Championship, Watford 2 Colchester United 2

Watford had to settle for a point after Marlon King had a penalty saved.

Fair play to Colchester… their open, positive approach was as vital in earning them a point as our wasteful finishing and inept defending, speaking of which…
