1st January 2011- Championship, Watford 3 Portsmouth 0

In-form Watford powered into the Championship play-off positions with an emphatic victory over Portsmouth.

For the sake of accuracy and not getting too carried away, we must mention the two chances missed by David Nugent at either end of either half…and things might’ve been different if the first of those, following some rather hesitant defending, had ended up in the top corner rather than the Rookery. But much more typical was what occupied the rest of the ninety minutes: a game that we didn’t chase so much as gently coax, safe in the knowledge that it was ours as long as we didn’t scare it off.

Required it, got it…and weagain, astonishingly and spectacularly, arrived at the point where we’d put the game out of reach with half an hour remaining.

25th November 2001- New Division One, Watford 3 Portsmouth 0

A solid performance by Watford at Vicarage Road ended a poor run of form from Gianluca Vialli’s team.

Nothing of any consequence happens on a Sunday evening. The invention of the wheel, the discovery of penicillin, the abolition of slavery, the introduction of the backpass law…none of them happened while the people involved were lounging around in front of “Monarch Of The Glen”.
