27th January 2009- Championship, Watford 3 Burnley 0

Tamas Priskin came off the bench to score a clinical brace as Watford earned a vital Championship win against a very disappointing Burnley.

Burnley got off to the worst possible start when McAnuff struck inside the opening minute.

Before Saturday, my co-editor suggested that Mr.Rodgers needed to give us something to cling to.  Well this wasn’t so much a damp rope to cling to as a luxury yacht with well stocked galley and attentive staff.  Wallop! And there was me suggesting that we were doomed with him in charge.  Shows how much I know.  Why are you still reading this?

BBC SportWatford will meet Leeds in the Championship play-off final after cruising past a lacklustre Palace.

guardianAdrian Boothroyd faces the threat of being banned from the touchline for the play-off final against Leeds United, comfortably the biggest game of his brief managerial career, after being sent to the stands last night following a mass brawl in front of his dugout. The Watford manager sparked mayhem midway through the second half when he flicked the ball away from Fitz Hall with a hand as the Crystal Palace defender sought to take a quick throw-in.

BSAD imageBSAD reports: There is an air of something approaching hysteria inside Vicarage Road.

Immense. Amazing. Rock solid. Tense. Iron-willed. Undefeated.  Just some of the words we used, once we’d calmed down, to describe the fight on the touchline which was triggered by maybe a little too much management of the game and, in particular, the ball. But if we focus on that, we’ll be overlooking a job done with just as many of the qualities as we brought to the 60th-minute melee.

9th April 2006- Championship, Watford 1 Luton Town 1

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=4708

Ahmet Brkovic’s first goal of 2006, 17 minutes from time, rescued a point for Luton at Vicarage Road to virtually end Watford’s hopes of automatic promotion. It also means Luton’s slim hopes of gaining a play-off spot were extinguished.

The point confirms Watford’s play off place, but almost certainly means they won’t catch Sheffield United in the race for second spot.

Asked if he was concerned at his team’s poor form, Boothroyd said: “Yeah, 73 points. Awful.”

19th November 2005- Championship, Watford 2 Sheffield Wednesday 1

So, much as I enjoyed watching our highly impressive, rousing start to the campaign, this, for me, is Adrian Boothroyd’s first landmark of genuine note. The nature of the man, it appears, is such that he wouldn’t greet it with more than a passing shrug and a sharp quip, but it is an achievement nevertheless. Because the consolidation is much more significant than the initial conquest: we might very easily have slipped back into mid-table by now, looking back upon those late summer days as a glorious, short-lived memory. Instead, we’re still here, claiming the right to consider ourselves contenders. That’s a bloody triumph, to my mind.
