5th January 2008- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 2 Crystal Palace 0

Dan Shittu scored two virtually identical goals as Watford ended Crystal Palace’s 13-game unbeaten run to reach the FA Cup fourth round.

Well that was much better. It’s been a while since we’ve dominated a side at home as we did in the second half.


29th December 2007- Championship, Watford 2 Queens Park Rangers 4

QPR’s remarkable victory leaves Watford without a home win since 20 October.

QPR now sit 19th in the Championship, a long way from Watford who, after a seventh home league game without a win, are on the slide. The manager, Aidy Boothroyd, is trying to quell talk of a crisis but the captain, Jay DeMerit, admits the club’s hopes of going straight back into the Premier League are fragile. “We are a little bit nervous at home – it feels as though there is more pressure,” he said. “A team that is near the top of the table should be winning at home. Our jobs aren’t safe; we have to play well in order to keep them.”

What a jolly splendid sunset over the Rous Stand.
