4th March 2006-Championship, Watford 2 Derby County 2

Kevin Lisbie gave Derby the lead against the run of play when he raced onto Adam Bolder’s pass and trickled a low shot into the far corner.

Marlon King fired the Hornets level with a smart finish from 18 yards and later hit the post as the home side poured forward.

But Giles Barnes slid in to put the Rams ahead before Bangura made it 2-2 with a fine shot deep in injury-time.

4th March 2000- Premier League, Watford 1 West Ham United 2

For once, Watford fans had more than blind faith to cling to as kickoff approached. Not only the encouragement of two vastly improved performances, especially that mighty effort at Chelsea, but also the knowledge that we’d be able to field an unchanged side. This was it, this was our first win of the new year. No doubts.

Playing crap I can tolerate – it happens, whatever the division you are in. But showing such an APPARENT LACK OF EFFORT? The “half-arsed” element to our play in that first half still rankles, 48 hours on.

I saw us lose 4-0 at Spurs this season but there we were undone by the magician Ginola. In the first half against West Ham we showed a complete lack of the application and spirit that GT instilled over twenty years ago, and that simply cannot be tolerated.
