3rd March 2021- Championship, Watford 2 Wycombe Wanderers 0

BBC Sport: Andre Gray’s first brace in almost four years helped Watford beat Wycombe Wanderers in the Championship and go level on points with second-placed Brentford.

Sky Sports: Two goals from Andre Gray were enough for the Hornets, who now have an automatic promotion place in their sights following the Bees’ defeat at leaders Norwich.

BHappy: The other eye-catching addition to the eleven was Andre Gray, starting his first game for almost a month in the absence of the suspended João Pedro.  Not a given that he’d get the nod I don’t think, but fourteen minutes in he made a mockery of his meagre form this season by clinically finishing off a move that, like so many, rolled down the right wing via Kiko and the irrepressible Sarr.  No surprise, I guess, that a striker should enjoy playing in a confident attacking side creating plenty of chances more than he does the constipated Watford team that he struggled in front of for much of the season, but nonetheless.  Surprising how easy he made it look, suddenly.  In common with our best moves at the moment, particularly down that flank, we looked mercilessly precise.

27th October 2020- Championship, Wycombe Wanderers 1 Watford 1

1-0

Ismaīla Sarr can, it seems, do it in front of a packed house against the champions as well as an empty one in the Championship.

Ben Foster claims Watford have been average this season

Wycombe secured their first Sky Bet Championship point of the season with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford, but Gareth Ainsworth’s side could easily have claimed all three.

Ismaila Sarr headed home Kiko Femenia’s inch-perfect cross to open the scoring for the visitors against the run of play in the 52nd minute. But Wycombe, who lost their opening seven league matches coming into this fixture, were soon level as defender Anthony Stewart nodded in Joe Jacobson’s corner midway through the second half.

We can’t complain with a point, and no away point is a bad point.  An away point at Wycombe might look a lot better in a month or two’s time than it does now.  But we need to be able to score imperfect, scruffy goals if we’re going to be the cruelly effective side that we ought to be.  We need a striker fit.

It was a tough night in Buckinghamshire for Watford who laboured to a draw against previously pointless Wycombe Wanderers, leaving supporters and Head Coach Vladimir Ivić pretty unimpressed.

BHappy imageBHappy report: Well that was more eventful than expected.  The summer I mean… not the game, obviously, we’ll get to that.  But doesn’t that Middlesbrough win seem an awfully long time ago.  Little suggestion then of the upheaval that was to follow (and  which still continues, I don’t think we’ve anything like finished yet…); if the long-term ownership of the club was in question there was certainly no indication that August would see us under a new manager (why would we?) or with a whole shedload of new players (how could we?).  Turbulent, unnerving and also (and let’s be absolutely clear about this) to the unquestionable benefit, ultimately, of the football club.  But quite possibly leaving a few disassociated, with nothing familiar to hold on to.  So thank heaven and earth for the First Round of the League Cup (sponsored by whoever).  Even today, a balmy Saturday afternoon instead of a cool Tuesday night.  It never disappoints, never fails to sap the start of season excitement from the marrow, grounds us, reminds us what it’s all about.

BSAD imageBSAD report:The weather on Saturday meant that you felt as if you should be going to Lords or Wimbledon rather than a football match, which means the start of the season cannot be far around the corner.

26th December 1997- New Division Two, Wycombe Wanderers 0 Watford 0

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=4283

Strange business, this top of the table lark. Despite being so far away from Oldham in third place that they’re unlikely to catch us up with the aid of rocket-powered, erm, rockets, Watford fans appear to be on a mission to find something to have a bloody good moan about.
