10th December 2008- Championship, Watford 2 Norwich City 1

Tommy Smith’s strike earned Watford boss Brendan Rodgers his first win as manager as they saw off Norwich.

The uncharitable might say that Brendan Rodgers owes his first victory as Watford manager to Norwich’s failings rather than his own side’s strengths. Profound frustration made Glenn Roeder a very uncharitable man. And a confused one. “That was daylight robbery,” said Roeder of this night-time joust. “We dominated from start to finish and gifted them two early Christmas presents. Anyone who puts forward a case for Watford deserving to win that match is in fairyland.”

Yeah, I know.  A win.  Any win.  But good god.  Norwich were poor, and yet we were fortunate to come away with three points.

4th March 2008- Championship, Watford 1 Norwich City 1

Norwich striker Jamie Cureton came off the bench to score a superb late equaliser away at Watford.

The first twenty minutes was terrific, but we’ve nobody but ourselves to blame if we don’t take advantage of such spells.  It’s no coincidence that we’ve not tonked anyone for a while.

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.
