Watford’s Nathaniel Chalobah critical of referee after Southampton stalemate

skyJose Holebas’ late strike denied Southampton a first Premier League win of the season at St Mary’s as Watford came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

BBC SportDespite Watford enjoying some good fortune to equalise, manager Javi Gracia also felt aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty when Ryan Bertrand appeared to foul Nathaniel Chalobah.  “There were different situations that were difficult for the referee but it was a clear penalty,” he said.

guardianThe man at the centre of it all was Simon Hooper, the referee who up until the 57th minute was getting on with his duties with little fuss. But then came the meltdown. First, he failed to award Watford a clear penalty following Ryan Bertrand’s rash tackle on Nathaniel Chalobah and, six minutes later, decided to ruled out a second Southampton goal for what turned out to be a wholly incorrect reason.

TelegraphThe visitors found a way back eight minutes from the end. Southampton failed to deal with a cross  from the left, a deflected clearance and there was Jose Holebas to lash home, via a deflection off Cedric, from just inside the penalty area. Southampton were unable to contain their frustrations.

BHappy image“Tell you what Matt, the next time we come here, let’s not park in Portsmouth…?”  Paul’s an affable sort of bloke, not one for unnecessary or exaggerated protest and in fairness he has a point. Our reserved parking space is actually only half a mile or so from the ground as the crow flies but with the River Itchen in the way it’s a good two miles as the Watford fan trudges. This seemed like a reasonable idea without the filter of the pissing rain, and on the way into Southampton the prospect of snarled traffic put us off from looking for something a bit closer. As it is we arrive damp and tired, and that classic football fan’s war wound, the burn on the roof of the mouth thanks to a hastily inhaled balti pie, doesn’t brighten the outlook. Loz materialises, over from gadding it in Spain, this helps, but as the teams come out it’s absolutely hammering it down.

FranPrior to kick-off there was a minute’s silence to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War which was accompanied by a rendition of The Last Post.  The only other sound that could be heard was the rain on the roof of the stand.

The Hornets NestI thought Watford were a bit sluggish in the first half, sloppy in possession and just generally a bit lackluster. Second half however we were much improved, the introduction of Deeney shortly before halftime I think was crucial.  If you take away just one trait, one characteristic of this Watford side so far this season it’s that they never give up. We pushed Southampton right until the end and threw the kitchen sink at grabbing a winner. The team spirit that Javi has created in this side is infectious.

Watford ObserverWatford thrash nine-man Leeds United 6-1 at Elland Road

BBC SportLeeds United slumped to an embarrassing home defeat and are now without a win in six league games after Watford scored six goals at Elland Road.

skyWatford’s army of loan rangers ran riot at Elland Road with a 6-1 victory Leeds United in the Championship on Saturday.

guardianNeil Warnock admitted he lost interest in this game after seeing his midfielder Rodolph Austin suffer a suspected broken leg during his Leeds side’s thrashing by Watford.

10th November 2001- New Division One, Watford 1 Stockport County 1

Watford striker Tommy Smith saved team-mate Paul Robinson’s blushes with an 89th minute equaliser. Left-back Paul Robinson inexplicably chested a Glynn Hurst cross into his own net in the 79th minute after getting into a mix-up with goalkeeper Alec Chamberlain. But with one minute of normal time left Marcus Gayle crossed for Smith who flicked home a leveller.

It’d be hard to imagine a more one-sided match. By my reckoning, Stockport managed one shot in the entire ninety minutes – absurdly, bearing in mind the scoreline, it didn’t result in a goal. Oh, there was one other attempt, which hit a defender before it had even crossed the eighteen yard line and ballooned into the stand behind. They created two chances worthy of note, one in either half and both ended by the majestic Neil Cox before the ball could be struck towards goal.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Trevor Putney did the only good thing he ever did for Watford in my opinion and planted the free kick on Holdsworth’s head, who proceeded to cushion a header past a surprised Lukic. Who cared about the poor Leeds marking, for Holdsworth’s goal sparked a first class terrace mental. 

100 greatest100 Greatest Watford wins- No.13: The old Vicarage Road terrace deserved one last hurrah, a final send-off before being bulldozed and replaced with a smart new stand.

OzWhiteLUFC report:The Watford game was the last time that Eric Cantona wore a Leeds shirt. His last European game ended in defeat at the hands of Rangers, his last League game was an ignominious 4-0 drubbing at Maine Road by Manchester City and the final ignominy was his miserable game at Watford, all in the space of seven days.
