24th January 2022- Claudio Ranieri sacked

Official site club statement

Sky Sports: Ranieri has failed to turn around the team’s fortunes since being appointed in October, with the Hornets dropping into the Premier League relegation zone for the first time this season after Friday’s 3-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers Norwich.

Watford Observer: The embarrassing loss was the final straw for club chiefs, who had become increasingly concerned about the Italian’s record, which ends with just two wins and a draw from 14 games in all competitions.

24th January 2009- FA Cup Fourth Round, Watford 4 Crystal Palace 3

Watford booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup despite a late Crystal Palace rally at Vicarage Road.

Some quite terrific goals all told;  the first owed a lot to defensive ineptitude that wouldn’t have looked out of place at the other end of the park, the third could also have been better defended although it was finished well and suggested a long-missed stock move.  But the second and fourth were marvellous breakaways, truly exhilarating.  Good stuff.

24th January 1998- New Division Two, Brentford 1 Watford 2

Chamberlain wins the ‘man of the match’ award for two remarkable stops, both requiring one-handed saves low down at his right hand post. He actually brought one of them on himself with a poor clearance that was returned by a Brentford striker but the other, an instinctive reaction to a deflected shot, was extraordinary. But even with the Watford keeper’s heroics and even with Mooney booting another effort from the goalline, Brentford should’ve scored – two great opportunities saw strikers shoot across the face of goal when it seemed far easier to hit the back of the net.
