BBC SportDavid Moyes said he was disappointed with West Ham’s “big players with big reputations” after his first game in charge ended in a 2-0 defeat at Watford.

skyThe appointment of David Moyes at West Ham failed to deliver an instant reaction as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Watford on Super Sunday.

guardianIf David Moyes had any illusions that keeping West Ham in the Premier Leaguewill not be among the biggest challenges of his career, then the manner of this defeat must surely act as a major wake-up call.

TelegraphA manager who would like to leave against one desperate to stay and, with inevitable irony, it was want-away Marco Silva who claimed the victory for Watford as they condemned David Moyes to a desperate, hostile defeat in his first game in charge of West Ham United.

BHappy imageThere was a Sunday afternoon feel about it all, to start with.  A sort of simmering sleepiness.  That lasted a matter of seconds, long enough for Andy Carroll to launch into his typical aggressive, aerial, flailing challenge and take out Marvin Zeegelaar, surprisingly given a debut in preference to Holebas.  Welcome to the Premier League.  Carroll avoided a card, somehow, perhaps by getting his assault in so early that if the “too early to book someone” line ever had any credibility to it he had to get away with it.

FranIt is the 25th anniversary of Watford’s Community and Education Trust and the club had chosen this game to celebrate.  As part of the commemorations, they had invited Ann Swanson back as guest of honour.  Ann had run the Junior Hornets back in the 80s and her efforts in ensuring that youngsters had a safe environment in which to watch football helped a whole generation of fans develop a love for the game, many of whom are now bringing the next generation along.  While I am too old to have been part of this group, I did want to shake her hand and thank her for all that she had done.  While waiting, it was lovely to hear her greet a guy with, “You’re one of my Junior Hornets.”  She seemed thrilled, but the warmth of the young man’s greeting showed the great esteem in which she is held by her former charges.

The Hornets NestA welcome return to winning ways with a dominant display. Watford were better in every area of the pitch and made it look easy at times.

BHappy image Quite how the game would have panned out but for the penalty we’ll never know.  One possibility of course is that we’d have capitalised further on this extraordinary start, or that Leicester would have come back at us and, on failing to break through, overcommitted leaving us holes to exploit.

screen-shot-2016-10-03-at-19-13-20No sooner had we taken our seats after kick-off but we were out of them again as Capoue opened the scoring after Pereyra had broken forward and delivered a cross that was knocked down by Deeney for the Frenchman to hit home.  All of a sudden the cobwebs were swept away, the horror of Liverpool was forgotten and football was fun again.

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-17-02-07 While walking to the station the Leicester fans were trying to salvage what they could. “Does anyone know if Watford have played in Europe?” I piped up behind them, “Yes, getting to the third round of the UEFA Cup, 1983-84.”
