BHappy imagereport: games with Bournemouth have been terrific fun since their arrival in the Championship a few years ago: the pleasing openness of their football and the apparent decency of their manager don’t obscure more than an element of the irritable and irritating. There’s not no Boothroyd in their DNA.

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-15-22-53 report: Nothing needs to be said about past refereeing performances in games against Bournemouth and Mike Dean did his best to replicate his predecessors. An early yellow card for Prodl for handball after he was blatantly shoved to the floor by Wilson a prime example.

1st October 2009- RIP Terry Challis

The name Terry Challis will be familiar to a great many Watford fans.  His cartoons in the Watford Observer were often the first port of call for many after buying the paper.

Terry passed away on 1st October 2009.

 

BHappy image tribute: In days before blanket coverage and instant highlights, it always seemed particularly vital after a distant, unseen away game, as much a part of the reportage as Oliver Phillips’ account alongside.

guardianIf the Premiership is considered boring and lacking in quality these days, God forbid either of these sides should rise from the Championship to join it.

BSAD imageBSAD reports: Ah, Birmingham. Our familiar, if strangely accented, friends. Welcome back, with your song that has fifty-seven verses of proudly but unintelligibly mumbled nonsense. Welcome back, with your fully developed sense of “sleeping giant” superiority that gets you nowhere at all and turns you into Wolves Mk II. Welcome back, with your manager who seems to have a permanent cold and a permanent bad mood to go with it. Really, we’ve missed you.

Tricky one, this. We’ll all look back on it – players, staff, fans – and think, whoa, good side, Birmingham, big test, two-nil, hey, we were sailing along.  Truth to tell, it was mucky work, and anyone with a slightly better memory for detail will always recall that too.

guardianSeptember has only just slipped by but the bookies have effectively closed the betting on the First Division title race. Fulham, nine wins on the bounce, have it sewn up and the others are competing for the minor placings.  That theory, which became more compelling after Jean Tigana’s remarkably consistent team eased their way to victory at Bolton, is a trifle harsh on Watford, who have themselves started as though the season is a sprint and not a marathon.

1st October 1996- New Division Two, Watford 1 Preston North End 0

Weird old business, this football lark. Last night, Watford’s players were about a minute away from being booed off the pitch (unjustifiably, really, but fans are a fickle bunch) when Steve Palmer finally scored the match-winning goal, leading to mad celebrations and a sense of jubilation when the final whistle blew. Such is the thin line between success and failure, or something like that.
