21st September 2021- League Cup Third Round, Watford 1 Stoke City 3

WFC.Net Jon Mark’s goal commentary: 1

Attendance: 8,421

BBC Sport: Late goals from Sam Clucas and Josh Tymon gave Championship side Stoke City a surprise win over a wasteful Watford in the Carabao Cup third round.

Sky Sports: Watford head coach Xisco Munoz changed his entire starting XI from the weekend win at Norwich but the majority of his fringe players failed to impress, while Stoke – showing eight alterations of their own – recovered from their loss at beleaguered Derby last time out.

Manchester City scored five goals in a devastating opening 18-minute spell as they responded to their shock defeat at Norwich with an 8-0 demolition of Watford on Saturday.

Bernardo Silva scored a hat-trick as Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot to clinch their biggest league win since he took charge in 2016. They also hit the woodwork twice and continued to chase further goals until the end, but a record victory eluded them.

Watford’s heaviest ever defeat in English league football – at the hands of an irresistible Manchester City – prompted harsh words from pundits, their own players and manager.

Quique Sánchez Flores took out Christian Kabesele and Andre Gray for Dimitri Foulquier and Adrian Mariappa, the manager perhaps wishing he had the roughhouse qualities of the injured Troy Deeney to give Otamendi and Fernandinho a differing challenge to that of Shakhtar Donetsk, whom City coasted past to a midweek 3-0 Champions League win.

When I sent out the e-mail to our group asking who wanted tickets for this game, I couldn’t help noticing that there were more apologies for absence than usual.  I can’t say that I blamed them as the memory of the cup final is still rather raw and, given our start to the season, this was not a game that I was looking forward to.

Jon and Mike took on the challenge of going dark to all media between 3pm and MOTD. Could they make it through the game, and the 5 hours afterwards, without seeing the score and what went down at the Etihad.

Goals: 1  2  3  4  5

A Troy Deeney shot gave the visitors the lead before Jason Scotland won possession and fired in to equalise. Davide Faraoni’s volley put Watford back in front before a Fernando Forestieri strike and a long-range Sean Murray extended the Hornets’ advantage.

Ikechi Anya’s impressive solo effort helped continue Watford’s strong start to the Sky Bet Championship season as the Hornets thrashed Barnsley 5-1 at Oakwell.

21st September 2004- League Cup Second Round, Reading 0 Watford 3

Irrespective of the detail of what follows below, we visited a side with a hundred percent home record, a place where our own record is less than outstanding. We rested arguably our five most effective players, three of whose replacements had eight senior starts between them. And we won three-nil. Reading rested players themselves but in lesser numbers. What was close to a first choice eleven had their applecart upset, with Danny, Gav, H, Dyche and Ards (but for a thirty-second cameo) with their feet up ready for Saturday. So much for damage limitation.

Guardian report:Routledge, booked in the second minute for a foul, was dismissed by the referee Andy Hall for a second yellow, which meant red – pretty much the colour of Trevor Francis’s face as the Palace manager tried to convey his frustration.

BSAD report:the sheer energy of it all was thrilling, and the honesty and commitment was more than welcome.
