FranThis week, the Watford family lost someone very special. Stephen Todd, known to his football friends as Toddy, was a lifelong Watford fan. He regularly travelled to away games and was a stalwart at club events. He was an enthusiastic member of the Norfolk Hornets and a regular contributor to various fanzines over the years, where his quirky sense of humour shone through. More than that, he was one of my closest friends, someone who always added laughter to a social occasion. Sadly, he has had a number of health issues over the past year, but has bravely soldiered on and travelled to see the tremendous game at Southampton before his final appearance at last week’s defeat to Manchester City. As the news of his passing reached the club, I was very moved to see a tweet from Troy on how much he would be missed. Similar sentiments were expressed on social media by Luther, Gibbsy, Nick Cox, Ross Wilson, Dave Messenger and Jon Marks. The kind words from the great and the good were echoed by many fellow fans and this outpouring of love has bought great comfort to his family and friends. I will miss him terribly.

The Hornets NestAs I arrived at the ground the sheer silly-ness of the Welsh language was clear for all to see.

Hornet effectThe Golden Boys posted three successive away wins in the top flight for the first time in their history following another classic performance on the road. The record-breaking feat was the best possible response to the heavy defeat by Manchester City.

BBC Sport Swansea defender Alfie Mawson made a costly error as his side were beaten by Watford at Vicarage Road to remain two points adrift of Premier League safety.

TelegraphSwansea’s new manager seems to have lost his bounce. It is more than a month since Paul Clement last tasted victory and Swansea, with this defeat at Watford, have now lost their last six outings away from home.

Independent Swansea City’s relegation worries are deepening after an Alfie Mawson mistake handed Watford’s Etienne Capoue the winner at Vicarage Road and left Paul Clement’s side win no wins in six games and still sitting in the bottom three of the Premier League.

BHappy image I’ll just come right out with it. I’ve been seeing someone else.

FranDue to the lack of an Easter programme in the Premier League, we only had one game this weekend, so I felt oddly cheated but determined to make the most of the one that we had.

Why should this make me so frustrated? Well, my blog name contains an apostrophe and it makes me so annoyed when people forget it, because it’s simply not right.

BHappy image report: Ten minutes in one of the blokes behind us announced that “this has got nil-nil written all over it”.  This was irritating… partly because it felt like a spoiler, partly because he was so obviously right and the sudden realisation, much as it had been staring us in the face since kick-off, deflated enthusiasm.

Roberto Martínez hailed a “perfect” Watford performance after the Hornets ended his Swansea side’s 16-game unbeaten run and extricated themselves from the relegation zone with an exemplary performance of counterattacking.

The touchline duel between the Championship’s bright young things was resolved decisively last night in favour of Brendan Rodgers. In aesthetic terms this match was occasionally a spit and sawdust affair, and while Rodgers is a man with few mannerisms to extend the Wild West anaolgy any further, he has conditioned his team to act like ruthless gunslingers.

Swansea missed the chance to move into the play-off places after they were beaten 2-0 away at struggling Watford.

First-half efforts from strikers Tamas Priskin and Tommy Smith was enough to claim all three points for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

I’m not going to tell you this was a Swansea side tired from their impressive endeavors against Fulham at the weekend. Neither am I going to say that this was a Swansea side having a bad day.  

This was quite simply an immense performance from the ‘Orns. Easily the best of Brendan’s reign so far and probably the most impressive I’ve seen from us since the Playoff annihilation of Palace at Selhurst. We were just wonderful.
