27th March 2010- Championship, Watford 1 Middlesbrough 1


Substitute Leroy Lita salvaged a point for Middlesbrough against Watford, but the draw all but ended the visitors’ chances of a play-off place. Watford took the lead through John Eustace who fired in a volley from the edge of the area.


4th March 2000- Premier League, Watford 1 West Ham United 2

For once, Watford fans had more than blind faith to cling to as kickoff approached. Not only the encouragement of two vastly improved performances, especially that mighty effort at Chelsea, but also the knowledge that we’d be able to field an unchanged side. This was it, this was our first win of the new year. No doubts.

Playing crap I can tolerate – it happens, whatever the division you are in. But showing such an APPARENT LACK OF EFFORT? The “half-arsed” element to our play in that first half still rankles, 48 hours on.

I saw us lose 4-0 at Spurs this season but there we were undone by the magician Ginola. In the first half against West Ham we showed a complete lack of the application and spirit that GT instilled over twenty years ago, and that simply cannot be tolerated.
