Dons capitalise on beaten Hornets’ second-half defensive shortcomings

Head coach admits Hornets ‘must improve’ but unsurprised by Wimbledon defeat

Those who were late leaving the bar after half time (no names mentioned) returned completely oblivious to the fact that Wimbledon had scored two goals in the first five minutes of the half.  The first came as a cross from Taylor was turned in by McDonald.  The second came after a mistake in midfield allowed Barcham to escape and cross for McDonald to score his second. 

23rd November 2013- Championship, Watford 0 Bolton Wanderers 1

Manuel Almunia’s error gifted Bolton a third straight win as Watford suffered their third consecutive home defeat.

Unusual to be starting with the “big picture” stuff, normally the domain of thunk 5.  Relevant here though., because however dispiriting our recent form has been…  things could be worse.  No, really.  I mean, you know that, right?   You remember Bassini?   Not being able to afford Keith Scott or a Stevenage-era Barry Hayles in Division One?  The financial abyss post-Vialli?  This?  Whatever’s wrong is small potatoes in comparison.  And even if one accepts that there are major problems with the team – we’ll get to that – we have owners with a demonstrably sound plan, and a degree of security.  And some very talented players, albeit we’re not seeing the best of them at the moment.

30th November 2004- League Cup Quarter Final, Watford 3 Portsmouth 0

BBC Sport

Portsmouth’s traumatic week sunk to new depths as they were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Watford.

Watford would seem to specialise in compounding the problems of troubled south-coast clubs, but Portsmouth’s first-team coach Kevin Bond did not bemoan the impact of Harry Redknapp’s departure as manager last week.

Three BSAD reports including…Despite recent events, Portsmouth are a much better side than the last round’s victims, and this success required the intense, concentrated implementation of a well-prepared gameplan. Required it, got it…and weagain, astonishingly and spectacularly, arrived at the point where we’d put the game out of reach with half an hour remaining.

10th April 2004- New Division One, Watford 2 Crewe Alexandra 1

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=4601

Happily for us, none of our other rivals in the unseemly melee at the foot of the first division made the blindest bit of difference to their chances of survival during our two weeks of Millwall-induced inactivity. Crewe, who are very much still one of those clubs in trouble, arrived at The Vic for the first of three fixtures which given the all round closeness of the battle, are not so much “winner takes all” as “winner takes a small step away from trouble but still get to look over their shoulders anxiously”. With mouth-watering trips to Burnley and Rotherham to follow, a win was not so much desired as down right essential to our prospects. Small steps maybe, but ones we have to take.
