  1. Watford (0) v (1) Norwich City Somehow we have to turn around the deficit. Home ground advantage should help but will it be enough? We've struggled several times this season against Norwich and we're missing 2 crucial midfielders. We're going to have to go for it.
  2. Portland Timbers (1) v (1) Club America The away goal hands the Timbers the advantage but the match is really on a knife edge. Must ensure we don't concede. If we let one in, it's game over.

    Welbeck - £27m Too expensive for me. I'm out.
  4. Norwich City v Watford Norwich beat us a week ago in the first leg of the League Cup semi final. We know their quality and what they can do. However, that result left a sour taste and we can't afford any slip ups because of West Ham sneaking just behind us. Securing 3 points is absolutely crucial.
  5. Watford 3 - 1 Brighton A potential banana skin game that was made safe in the first half with a magical performance from Lautaro Martinez. Martinez was setup beautifully for his first 2 goals which were taken with aplomb before a 40th minute penalty conversion saw him net his first hattrick for Watford. However the second half was forgettable with an 80th minute injury to our best midfielder in Domingos Quina who will miss the next 5 weeks (and probably the remainder of the season). This was followed by a 91st minute own goal from Joy Mukena. On the plus side, the 3 points keeps us 2 points above West Ham who are snapping at our heels. We only need to slip us once and they'll take it from us. They're really keeping the pressure on.
  6. Watford_U23 v Burnley_U23 Burnley sit one position below us in 5th. Whilst the dream of the title is over, if we can secure the 3 points today, we'll guarantee ourselves a top 4 finish. Which in normal circumstances is pretty damn good for a newly promoted team. So we'll keep scrapping.
  7. Manchester City U23 0 - 0 Watford U23 City weren't interested in playing as they parked the bus. Made for a drab game with only 3 shots taken for the entire game; none of which were on target. Before the Xmas/NY break Watford was sitting 2nd, just a point behind Liverpool. However, in the 3 matches since the restart we've only managed to pick up 2 points from a possible 9, whilst Liverpool has been merciless. We had harboured a hope of winning back to back Youth Div1 and Youth Prem titles but it's not to be. At least we have secured our place in the Youth Prem and we can have a crack at the title next season.

    Watford offer £22m for Welbeck
  10. Norwich City 1 - 0 Watford 63% possession; 3 shots on target to their 2. They scored with first action of the game using P v C. Just to sweeten it further, Watford cops a red card to a defender in the first half. Our luck better turn soon. Stupid results like this are happening to us with frightening regularity and its starting to piss me off.
  11. Watford U23 0 - 3 Stoke City U23 A horrific performance. Stats suggest it should have been closer but Stoke City were clinical in converting their opportunities. A red card to Tai Ebanks capped off a forgettable evening. Instead of slowly slipping away from top, we're starting to sink like a stone. At least we're guaranteed another season in the top league after being out for a season.
  12. Bournemouth U23 0 - 0 Watford U23 Watford edged the possession and had more than twice the number of shots on target. However both teams had goals not given and could feel aggrieved to not be taking away all 3 points. Really needed all 3 points to keep the pressure on Liverpool and we are slowly sliding away.
  13. Manchester City 0 - 1 Watford After the horror show in the previous round, I though Watford were going to do it again. A dominating performance against the Citizens was rewarded (only just) with a late strike from Jesse Lingard 5 minutes from time. 64% but only 5 on target from 16 total shots. Also we let them have 10 (!) shots and 9 (!) on target from just 36% possession. Thankfully Lopes had a blinder between the sticks to save our bacon.
  14. Watford 0 - 3 Bournemouth The Cherries continue to be our bogey team. As Neil mentioned, we restricted them to just 35% possession however the 6 shots on target and 3 conceded is extremely worrying. Meanwhile Watford could only manage 6 on target from 15 total shots and never troubled their 26 rated keeper. The result beggars belief a little but fair play to Bournemouth. Too wasteful in front of goal and too sloppy down back. Played Neil.
  15. Club America v Portland Timbers This was entirely unexpected. Based on the quality of the side, there were no expectations that Portland would progress past the group stage. Everything from here on is a massive bonus.
  16. Norwich City v Watford New Xmas acquisition Pacheco gets a run out ahead of Lopes. He has big shoes to fill and there are very high expectations. on him The defence is well rested so we're expecting a strong performance to take the advantage back to Vicarage Road.

  18. 400 Yth - YWA J_David +200 SAbs T_Akinola +200 SAbs Thanks.
  19. I agree with you Eltpm - you and Chelsea both won abs on the 19th which hasn't been included in the above. I imagine that day was just accidentally missed when they were collating the results.
  20.

  21. Watford v Bournemouth Sitting top now after the big win over West Ham. Bournemouth have a habit of tripping us up each season so we'll need to be careful in this game. Definitely chasing the 3 points as we want to keep a little distance over West Ham but a strong defensive performance and a clean sheet are going to be key.
  22. Bournemouth_U23 v Watford_U23 Bournemouth are a bit of a bogey team so this a huge game. On a huge high after the big win over West Ham so really want to keep that flowing, plus we need to keep the pressure on Liverpool as we don't want them to run away with the title.
  23. West Ham U23 0 - 3 Watford U23 Well that went better than expected. A tough even first half was how I expected the game to go and then the youths kicked it up a gear in the second half. Banks got it rolling and he was followed with goals to Folivi and Shonibare. Puts us in the box seat for the return leg but will need to be careful as West Ham are just as capable of a game like this also.
