8th December 2012- Championship, Watford 1 Hull City 2

BBC SportHull won at Watford for a third straight away victory that moves them up to fourth in the Championship.

BHappy imageIf we’re being as demanding of ourselves as we ought to be, then we should conclude that we were sloppy and complacent for much of the game against Barnsley…and that we got away with it because our opponents weren’t good enough to take advantage. None of that here: Hull set themselves out to stick a spanner into every single one of our stock passing moves, while remaining patient and watchful and quietly potent when possession came their way. They were far too much for us, and that made for a fascinating tussle between what we are and what we might yet be, a revealing insight into how close we are to being the finished article.

5th August 2012- Lloyd Doyley’s Testimonial, Watford 0 Tottenham Hotspur 1

Watford Observer Live coverage of Lloyd Doyley’s testimonial between Watford and Tottenham Hotspur.

BHappy image A decent turnout for a pre-season game, it’s reasonable to suppose that few were left on the edge of their seats by the spectacle. That’s what pre-season games are like of course, the pace tends to be rather lacking irrespective of the score or the standard… but limited as the excitement was, we acquitted ourselves reasonably well in the first half.

3 Aug 2002-Nigel Gibbs Testimonial, Watford 0 Tottenham Hotspur 1

 

BSAD imageBSAD report: We all needed this, I think.  A very Watford day, really. Much as the occasion was in honour of Nigel Gibbs, a very Watford person, the benefit was shared with typical generosity. Here, we brought a traumatic summer to an end, we thumped the full stop key to halt a particularly complicated, grammatically-chaotic sentence. And it felt, well, all right again.
