BBC Sport Watford condemned Newcastle to a fourth straight defeat with a comfortable away win at St James’ Park.

sky Watford swept aside an out-of-form Newcastle with a 3-0 victory at St James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday.

guardian Marco Silva is turning into such a hot managerial property he should probably be handled with oven gloves.

TelegraphIf there is anyone who has failed to grasp why Marco Silva’s reputation as a manager soars, take a look at Watford clinically dismantling Newcastle and pause for a moment to consider how easy they made it look.

BHappy imageHow times have changed.  Not just in that we come up to St.James’ Park and win, not just that such a win isn’t a smash and grab or a massive shock in itself, though both of those are remarkable.  The truly monumental thing is that we can come here and not play that well, actually, and win 3-0.

FranThe walk to St James’s Park is all uphill, but that is just the appetiser before the trek up to Level 7.  As we climbed, there were posters warning about the dangers and penalties for pyrotechnics.  One dire warning suggested that you could end up in A&E.  I was concerned that the walk to the gods was more likely to send me there.

The Hornets Nest As I was travelling home it was revealed that we would be featured first on Match of the Day, an incredibly rare occurrence after a Watford victory.  Unfortunately for me, Newcastle was so far away from my flat that I wouldn’t make it back in time for the start of the show.

25th November 2000- New Division One, Watford v Burnley- Match postponed

About an hour before kick off the heavens opened and the Vicarage Road pitch, which was three years in to its stint of having to cope with the egg chasers as well as the round ball game, was completely deluged.  Shortly after 3pm it was announced the referee had deemed the pitch unplayable.  The rearranged game didn’t take place until April and a new programme was issued.

A few weeks later in Issue 23 of the fanzine ‘The Yellow Experience’ an American fan  told of how he had travelled 5500 miles for the game.
