    Round 17 Results

    Watford 1 - 4 Bournemouth Well played Neil. Terrible result for Watford - Lopes had a shocker. An awful attempt to stop a goal in the 2nd minute gave Bournemouth a penalty which they promptly dispatched putting us under immediate pressure. Lopes continued to concede a further 3 goals in the match from just 7 attempts from Bournemouth, sandwiched in between Morelos pulling one back to be joint scorer for Watford with Werner with just a measly 5 goals. Lopes has usually been the hero for us each match so for him to be the villain is a little disconcerting this close to the end of the season with potential play-offs in sight. Watford are currently outside the play-off spots by two points so another performance like that doesn't bear thinking about.

    Round 17

    Leicester City U23 0 - 4 Watford U23 Was a little nervous about this game but shouldn't have been. Adebiyi got us off to a bright start scoring in the 1st minute and Hutchins followed it up 11 minutes later to settle any nerves. Kept the pressure up on the Foxes and got further reward late in the match to McEachran and O'Hare. So that's job well done with 1 round to go as the lads are now going straight back up into the Youth Premiership.
  4. Please place S_Hart in the youth team. Thanks.

  6. Watford - Bournemouth Home game. Bournemouth have struggled a little this season so here's hoping Watford can find a way to win.

    Round 16 Results

    Manchester City 1 - 1 Watford Another game we controlled for large periods, and another game where we threw it away in the end. The first half was relatively even but we were worked our way into it. Kevin Ly found the back of the net early in the second but lapses of concentration late on allowed City to sneak one in the 84th minute. That's 9 draws from 16 games - far too many. Defensively we're not doing too badly - really need to finish more of our chances. At best we can hope for a play-off but it's certainly not guaranteed with several hard games to come.
  8. Leicester_City_U23 - Watford_U23 2nd hosts 1st. Huge match. If Watford can pinch a point away from home we'll sew up top spot with a round to go. Lose and it'll be all to play for next week. Watford are missing Akinola due to suspension so Folivi and O'Hare are going to need to put in a lot of hard work (and score a goal or 3!). At the same time, we'll need to nullify Sheriff and Uche which will be no easy task.
  9. Too many draws - at least Watford will still play a part in deciding the outcome. Just have to knock over 2nd and 3rd to give us a shot at a play-off

  11. Watford_U23 - West_Ham_United_U23 We are hosting West Ham which will give us home ground advantage. And at this stage we need all the advantages we can get. Four games without a win, and West Ham are breathing down our neck. They have an exceptional keeper and strong defence and midfield. macca regularly sheets so we can expect a strong lineup. A draw is the minimum requirement to ensure West Ham don't leapfrog us into top spot but will be hard to achieve.
  12. Queens_Park_Rangers - Watford Like us QPR have struggled to win the crunch games with 6 draws so far. Watford has chalked up 7, so the odds are that another draw seems likely. Both teams have full squads to choose from and tactics will be all important. A draw doesn't help our chances of promotion but QPR will be difficult to break down.

    Round 14 Results

    Watford 0 - 0 Wolves Watford had major stamina concerns as well as missing Traore and Tarkowski which forced us to line defensively and pray. Watford's prayers were answered by an overzealous Wolves team who tackled rather more ferociously than was needed. Insigne was the first to see red as he brought down Morelos who was one-on-one with the Wolves keeper. Batth was the next to follow as he too brought down Morelos unfairly. Whilst Morelos was proving to be a threat at one end, Lopes kept Watford in the game with a series of stunning saves down the other. All told, Lopes saved 7 shots on target to help Watford earn a point. The result was more than we dreamed of and keeps us within touching distance of the top teams.

    Round 14 Results

    Manchester United U23 1 - 0 Watford U23 McEachran had a shot saved by the United keeper very early and this was followed by some bland football. Burkart scored for United late in the first half with their only shot on target. This fired up Watford and O'Hare almost had an immediate reply but it was saved. After the restart, a fired up Pereira could only find yellow, before Willock drew another good save from the United keeper. Pereira couldn't keep his cool and picked up another yellow with 10 minutes to go, earning an early shower and the manager's ire. Despite having more chances, Watford has walked away from this game with nothing. A shocker of a game from Watford and particularly Dahlberg who couldn't save the only shot he had to face, has consigned Watford to a fourth straight game without a win. After an impressive start to the season, Watford have only picked up 2 points in the last 4 games. Hanging onto the lead by a thread now.
  15. To Watford: J_Mukena M_Navarro To Watford U23: A_Smith Cheers.
  16. Manchester_United_U23 v Watford_U23 United are sitting mid table with several quality players through their spine. The Watford youths are refreshed and hopefully this quality team will beat a team full of individual quality. Desperately need the 3 points to avoid losing top spot to Wolves.

    Round 13 Results

    Watford U23 2 - 2 Aston Villa U23 Fell behind early but the lads toughed it out with Folivi scoring in the first and McEachran scoring the second midway through the second. Unfortunately as seems to be the case this season, we've let Villa back in who found the equaliser. Stats suggest we gave this one away and the two dropped points hurt as Wolves march ever closer.
  18. Watford v Wolverhampton_Wanderers Home to Wolves but it's highly likely we'll hemorrhage goals. Wolves are missing Patricio and normally we'd try and take advantage of this, but after the ET cup loss, we're missing Tarkowksi and Traore and have some significant stamina issues. A loss now will wreck our chances of promotion so we're going to need to dig deep and mine a significant vein of luck.

    Round 13 Results

    Southampton 0 - 0 Watford Weren't sure what Watford would face, so we put up a slightly defensive lineup. Didn't matter overly much as Watford dominated the game. Despite the lion's share of possession and more than doubling the number of shots on goal, we couldn't find a way past Vermeer who had a stellar game. An away point is gold though, especially as draws were the flavour of the round. We don't move on the ladder and remain within touching distance of Burnley at the top.

  21. Newcastle 1 - 1 Watford Watford travelled to St. James' Park looking to beat another Premiership side to advance further in the cup. We were in trouble early when Armand Traore went down early forcing a defensive substitution that we hadn't planned on as Watford brought on James Tarkowski (who wasn't fresh to begin with). Newcastle were able to capitalise whilst we were still trying to reorganise our defence and scored in the 29th minute. Tarkowski got himself booked a few minutes later to compound the misery. Very lucky not to fall further behind when they had a goal not given in the 42nd minute. Thankfully we were able to regroup after half-time and refresh the tactics. This gave Watford more chances in the second half and Karim Benzema finally buried one of them in the 90th minute. Tarkowski earned a second yellow during extra time and Watford limped into the penalty shoot-out. Forced substitutions and playing with 10 men at the end, took their toll as the tired Watford players struggled to test Ederson. Newcastle eventually won 3-1 in the penalty shoot-out as Alfredo Morelos, Kevin Ly and Max Aarons all missed the target. Pleased to have made it this far but wondering what might have been. Well played Harry. All the best in the cup.
  22. Newcastle v Watford Harry has assembled a nice team here - stronger than us on paper. It's our second Prem team to try and knock over but Newcastle have the home ground advantage for this one, so we're going to need something special to win. We've recently acquired Jores Okore to strengthen at the back and I imagine he's going to slot straight in as it'll be crucial not to concede.
  23. Southampton v Watford Southampton are sitting 2nd and in good form. However their manager has left and a new one has already replaced him. Unfortunately that makes Southampton a bit of mystery, coupled with their excellent stamina and home ground advantage and it's going to be a struggle. A win though and Watford will leapfrog them. We definitely need to win this.

    Round 12 Results

    Watford 2 - 1 Tottenham Hotspurs Morelos scored early to make it 3 games in a row and 4 goals in total. But the lead was short-lived as Spurs converted a dubious penalty 3 minutes after we hit the front. Watford dominated the game so it was pleasing when Benzema converted our 2nd with 5 minutes to go. Earlier in the season this would've been a draw but things are turning around now that Morelos is in form. Watford jump 2 places into 5th and 2 points closer to 1st. There's still plenty to play for.
