16th January 2021- Championship, Watford 2 Huddersfield Town 0

BBC Sport: Second-half goals from Tom Cleverley and Joao Pedro gave Watford a deserved victory over Huddersfield, whose away woes in the Championship continue.

Sky Sports: The midfielder opened the scoring in the 54th minute by charging down Ryan Schofield’s clearance straight into the Terriers’ net, after the goalkeeper had reacted far too slowly to a backpass. Joao Pedro doubled the lead 10 minutes later as the Hornets moved above Reading and into fifth place in the table.

BHappy: The trajectory is positive, even up front, and we’re too good here for a Huddersfield side that, albeit with a stronger eleven themselves and the help of us shooting ourselves in the foot twice, beat us comfortably only a month ago.  Only four surivivors from our starting eleven that day incidentally.


16th January 1989-FA Cup Third Round Second Replay, Newcastle United 0 Watford 0 (After Extra Time)

Jim Smith’s arrogance leads him to write ‘when we’ve disposed of Watford’ in his programme notes.  He had a gut feeling and it was wrong.  Also Newcastle were obviously so confident of winning that nowhere in the programme is there anything about the possibility of a Third Replay.
