28th November 2020- Championship, Watford 4 Preston North End 1

Post Match

Another home game, another win – a sixth in seven games – and a best start to a season at Vicarage Road in at least 13 years. No wonder the fans are so desperate to have their name pulled out of the hat ahead of the return of supporters next week.

Watford captain Troy Deeney marked his first start of the season with an inspired display in a 4-1 victory over Preston.The 32-year old scored one and created another to give the Hertfordshire side a comfortable afternoon at Vicarage Road.

Watford made it 19 points from a possible 21 at Vicarage Road this season, but had to overcome a side which boasted the second-best away record in the division, with all but three of their 16-point total earned on the road.

If we’re edging closer towards what things Ought To Be off the pitch, we’re suddenly ahead of the game on it.  Today’s shuffling of the deck saw the fielding of the same 20 names that muddled their way to a point at Ashton Gate on Wednesday but with a critical switch bringing Troy in for his first start of the season in place of João Pedro.

Ahead of supporters returning to the Vic, it was a welcome return to form for Watford, who turned on a scintillating second half display to punish Preston.

BBC Sport Manchester United “should have been smoking cigars” in their Premier League victory over Watford, manager Jose Mourinho said.

sky Ashley Young scored two superb goals before Manchester United held off a second-half Watford fightback to win 4-2 at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.

guardian United had looked like running away from Watford as Ashley Young enjoyed an early festive return to Vicarage Road, scoring two lovely goals. The home team never gave up though, dragging it back to 3-2 before Jesse Lingard took the game away with a sublime late fourth goal, weaving his way from his own half to finish in front of a delirious away end.

TelegraphIt was already a strange night’s football by the time that Mourinho came in post-match to analyse a game in which his team had taken a three-goal lead within 31 minutes only almost to throw it all away in the second half when Watford claimed two of their own. This briefly looked like the worst nightmare for a manager whose speciality was once that his teams knew how to shut the door as well as any other, and it took Jesse Lingard to score a brilliant fourth to seal it.

FranIt all started so well.  The Hornets had an early chance as Femenía hit a cross that Richarlison was just unable to reach.  The Brazilian was the next to try a cross, but it was caught by De Gea.  A corner from Cleverley was met by the head of Zeegelaar, but the effort was blocked.  Somewhat against the run of play, the visitors took the lead in the 19th minute with a gorgeous shot from Young that curled in at the near post.  He celebrated in front of the Watford fans, which incurred the wrath of many in the Rookery meaning that his every touch was booed from that moment on. 

The Hornets Nest X-Factor finalists Rak-Su performed at half time and after asking “Watford how we feeling?!”, which one can only assume was rhetorical (no one is that dumb, right?), the question got the response (or rather lack of) that it deserved.

It seemed all over in the space of about 14 minutes, but Watford did make the match look vaguely interesting in the end. Jon, Mike and DCW talk through the match and the BIG 5 who have visited Vicarage Road already this season!

28th November 2009- Championship, Crystal Palace 3 Watford 0

Victor Moses opened the scoring after Julian Speroni’s clearance caused havoc in the visiting defence before Alan Lee nodded home Danny Butterfield’s cross. Watford missed a chance to fight back on the stroke of half-time when Speroni saved Danny Graham’s penalty. The in-form Darren Ambrose then wrapped up the win from the edge of the area with his sixth goal in as many games.
