WATFORD FAN’S VIEW: Team spirit under Marco Silva has Hornets on the up, while Richarlison looking a steal at £11million

BBC SportRicharlison scored an injury-time equaliser as Watford came from two goals down to save a point at West Bromwich Albion.

skyRicharlison’s 94th-minute header earned Watford an unlikely point after coming back from two goals down against West Brom at The Hawthorns.

guardianWatford’s winning run on the road has come to an end, although you would never have guessed so by the wild celebrations among the travelling supporters at the final whistle. This felt more like a victory for Marco Silva’s resilient side, who recovered from being 2-0 down inside 21 minutes against notoriously difficult opponents to salvage a thoroughly deserved point courtesy of yet another last-gasp goal from Richarlison.

IndependentWest Brom were denied a first win in five Premier League matches after Richarlison’s header deep into added time salvaged a 2-2 draw for Watford at The Hawthorns.

TelegraphRicharlison is establishing a reputation for high drama, the superhero of stoppage time for Watford.

BHappy imageLosing your voice.  That’s the one.  That’s when you know that it’s been a belter, that it’s been worthwhile.  Lots of components make up an away day on and off the pitch…  result, performance, excitement.  Journey, company, food.  Some of which might be more important to you and some less, but losing your voice, as a marker, trumps everything.

FranWhen the team news came through there was much discussion of the only change from the Swansea game as Deeney was chosen in place of the previous week’s goalscorer, Gray.  To me the change made sense as, against a Pulis team, Deeney’s strength would be more important than Gray’s pace.

The Hornets NestOh international football, why must you spoil it for everyone? I’m having such tremendous fun following the ‘Orns this season that I want to do it every week. 

Hornet effectAs it transpired, the hosts were playing more of a 4-4-2, but as early as the 12th minute Watford had switched their wide men around, with Richarlison moving to the right and Carrillo to the left.

Player ratings: How did the Hornets fare against the Baggies?

imgres A resurgent Watford survived for half an hour with 10 men as they beat West Brom to earn back-to-back Premier League victories.

sky M’Baye Niang scored one and set up another to help 10-man Watford beat West Brom 2-0 on Tuesday and take another step towards Premier League survival.

guardian Two moments of attacking brilliance from M’Baye Niang lit up this fractious and ill-tempered game, the Milan loanee scoring one goal and creating another in spectacular style while around him boots, and indeed bookings, were flying about wildly. His 20-yard curler in the 13th minute set Watford on their way to a win that pushes them up to ninth and all but confirms their top-flight place for another season, even if Miguel Britos’s sending off with 25 minutes to play meant the game became more a struggle than a celebration.

Screen Shot 2017-04-07 at 18.22.31 The day began with Walter Mazzarri being told by the Watford hierarchy that his job could quite possibly be under threat if he did not begin to make more of an effort to speak English to supporters and journalists. It ended with the club reflecting on a second successive victory, sitting in the top-half of the Premier League table. 

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 21.41.15Walter Mazzarri is nothing if not passionate, and the Watford manager was torn between pride and rage after seeing his side effectively guarantee Premier League survival after a battling win over West Bromwich Albion.

BHappy image When I’m not working, sleeping, chasing children or watching football I enjoy am-dram.  A week or two ago, in a restaurant before a show, I tried to argue to some football-sceptic acting friends that football could be thoroughly dramatic, exciting, inspiring, as much so as anything that takes place on a stage.  It was a tumbleweed moment;  I don’t think I convinced any that weren’t already sold.

screen-shot-2016-10-03-at-19-13-20A month into a new job, I don’t have many regular meetings but one that I do have is on Tuesday from 5 to 6pm.  As the meeting came to a close, I was itching to get away.  When the request was made for any questions, the response of one of my colleagues that she had one immediately took her off my Christmas card list.  As soon as I was able, I made a rapid exit and was at Euston in time for the 18:30.  With a brief stop to check in to my hotel, I made a beeline for the ground.  As I reached the Rookery, it was lovely to see Gifton Noel-Williams outside chatting to someone.  After entering through the turnstiles, I found that the concourse was deserted.  In the stand, my family were in their seats but there were not many others there.  Then I heard Tim on the tannoy announce that it was 25 minutes to kick-off.  No wonder the place was so empty, I was ridiculously early … and I was going to have to watch this game sober, not a prospect I was relishing.  My early arrival did mean that I got to see the warm-up.  The notice on the big screen warning spectators to look out for balls flying into the crowd didn’t prevent a guy in the front of the stand being hit by an errant shot from Capoue.  The Frenchman leaped into the stand in order to apologise.  This had quite an effect on my niece, who is a big fan and came over all unnecessary, “I wish he’d hit me.”  Another off-pitch distraction came by way of my sister’s niece, who is studying for a degree in football broadcasting.  She had enquired about opportunities to gain experience at Watford and had been invited to shadow the media team for this game.  She was thrilled, but I think her aunt(s) were even more excited than she was.

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-15-22-53 Well, just how do you sum up the events of last night? Not easily, that’s for sure, but I’ll try my best.  My heart rate has finally slowed down after an excruciatingly tense night under the lights of Vicarage Road.  We must have all come close to cardiac arrest at some stage during the final 20 minutes, but I’ll get to that later.
