Watford’s Brazilian teenager Joao Pedro scored a sensational winner as the Hornets earned a narrow 1-0 win over struggling Derby at Pride Park.

An error-strewn affair, without even a shot on target until the 74th minute, was eventually decided by a real moment of class from the 19-year-old, turning on the edge of the box before bending a brilliant right-footed effort into the top corner.

The announcement of the starting eleven was underwhelming.  No Troy, no Hughes, we knew that, but no Sarr either.  The club may have been aware that he wouldn’t realistically be back in time (despite Senegal’s Tuesday game with Mauritania having been scratched, so a little difficult to reconcile) but we didn’t.  And no Capoue, despite the suggestion that his return was a possibility.  The first eleven, certainly the attacking side of it, looked a bit botched together and the bench, flimsy. Vladimir Ivić had picked a side based on what he had available, but it was a side that looked even more focused on defensive solidity, asking an awful lot of two young attacking players in João Pedro and Domingos Quina.

League football is back and so is that winning feeling! With the International break over and the transfer window finally shut, the boys convene to discuss Watford’s victorious return to action at Pride Park.

Jose Holebas’ fine strike settled a poor game as Watford’s victory left Middlesbrough still looking for a first home win of the Premier League season.

After a goalless first half that saw Antonio Barragan escape a sending off, the midfielder curled a delightful effort into the top corner nine minutes into the second period. 

Watford had barely threatened all afternoon but took the lead with a far more convincing strike from Holebas. The Greek international stole the ball from Cristhian Stuani and lashed a shot inside Victor Valdes’ near post from 20 yards.

3 BSAD reports including ‘There is nothing here that we’d want to take home with us, nothing to be jealous of. No grace, no elegance, no humility, no self-deprecation, no humour, no courtesy, no community, merely bloody insufferable arrogance and grotesque self-importance. The playground taunts of glory-hunters and soulless success junkies will forever echo around this wretched stadium, it will never be cleansed of the stench of winning at any price. It is one of the most horrible places I have ever visited’.
