Everton advanced into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup as goals from Mason Holgate and Richarlison secured a 2-0 victory over Watford at Goodison Park.

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores: “It was important to see [Domingos] Quina, to see [Sebastian] Prodl, to see [Dimitri] Foulquier, to see many players who are part of the squad. They are not playing too many minutes. “If we were able to win here then perfect, if we were not able to win, we need to set up for the next match at the weekend. We need all of them, in our situation we need all of them. The players got some confidence and they will need this for the future.”

Watford’s best chance came after an hour, a thunderous drive from Andre Gray that Jordan Pickford did well to parry. It was perhaps not the most difficult of saves, though Pickford was doing well just to be awake after enduring 60 soporific minutes as a spectator, and Gray’s shot came with little warning.

This was a generous cup draw for Silva. Watford’s league predicament at the bottom of the Premier League making this competition a distraction they could do without. Quique Sánchez Flores’ side look more organised since his appointment, even with eight changes from the last league game. Attacking flair is evidently an optional extra at this point of his rebuilding.

report: I resent the loss of midweek games, the loss of that looking forward to a week of work being interrupted by this nugget of excitement (or Rotherham at home, whatever) simply to accommodate Manchester United (for example) losing to some Danish team in a bloated competition that will give them plenty of second chances anyway.

 A very poor Hull City visited Vicarage Road and gave Jon, Jason and Mike plenty to talk about. That and a certain forged letter make it another one of those fun weeks to be a Watford fan. COME ON YOU ORNS!

report:There is always something special about the sense of anticipation in a pre-match crowd.  Also, as it was Watford playing Hull, there was neither a ticket tout nor a half-and-half scarf anywhere to be seen.

 report:During half time Harry the Hornet was awarded the ‘Unsung Hero 2015/16’ award. It’s about time he was acknowledged for his efforts on a match day. With stunts ranging from celebrating with the players, to throwing away fan inflatables into the off-limits building site when the Sir Elton John stand was being built. Harry is real entertainment.

29th October 2005- Championship, Watford 3 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

Ashley Young inspired Watford to victory at Vicarage Road.

A simply gorgeous moment in the eighty-seventh minute. A Wolves corner in front of the Vic Road end, where the speckled colours of clothes and faces have increasingly given way to solid blocks of empty red seats. The ball swings into the six yard box, where substitute Olonfinjana has been left in enough space to start his own vineyard and given enough time to grow it from seed. He must score. Inevitably, he doesn’t score. With wonderfully misguided conviction, he turns and smacks a forceful header five yards wide of the target, and another cluster of Wolves fans is shaken loose like autumn leaves in a stiff breeze.

Three fit centre backs and all was set fair to meet the boys from the Black Country. My lucky yellow jacket, sported proudly on these occasions, also saw to the Wolves line up missing strikers Carl Cort and George Ndah in addition to the long term injury victim, Paul Ince. Also absent was the suspended Vio Ganea.

29th October 1996-New Division Two, Watford 1 Luton Town 1

BSAD imageBSAD report:It makes a change for us to play Luton when they’re on a roll – it’s usually us enjoying a good run which, inevitably, comes to a sticky end against our local rivals. But nothing much changes – April 1987 was the last time we beat them in a proper match (the Anglo-Italian cup, in which you were allowed to name everyone in the ground as a substitute and play rush goalie, doesn’t count and we know it).
