Dr Watford's 2008 Review - February

Dr Watford's 2008 Review - February

February, and FA Cup revenge is ever so sweet as the Hornets walk all over Wolves to a 3-0 victory. Leigh Bromby`s long long throw becomes THE main weapon of mass destruction in just 60 seconds after he sets up Kabba for the opener.

It`s the first win at Vicarage Road for just short of 4 months and hope is high that the 'home win hoodoo` is put to bed…

Hoskins is shipped off to aid Forest in their Div 1 promotion push and despite fears of a bad back is set to see out the rest of the season at the City Ground proving that where there`s a Will there`s a way.

A VitalWatford backed Ghana dump Nigeria out of the African Cup of Nations so Shittu returns early but he gets named in the Team of the Tournament and his stock rises rapidly - that rapidly in fact that QPR are linked!!!!

Liam Henderson and Dale Bennett get sent out to Wealdstone for a right ol` kicking in the non league but Liam turns bruising into an art form, scores bags of goals and is deemed ready for the big time. Watford don`t need him though as Ellington and Smith are on a hot streak in a 2-1 win over Ipswich.

The Hornets are the first team to win at Portman Road all season to the distaste of the locals who lambaste Boothroyd`s 'up and at em` style - The gaffer doesn`t give a stuff mind you and rates his side`s performance 10 out of 10 as Watford go top (again).

Quote of the Year comes from Darius Henderson who, after the 1-0 win with 10 men over Leicester, answers the press question 'Are you missing Marlon King?` with "Does it look like it". Hendo is back to his cage fighting best and loving it.

O`Toole` red card in the Foxes victory (for being a bit part in Steve Howard`s very own version of Swan Lake) is rescinded by the FA and the baggy haired Irishman celebrates by scoring in the 2-2 draw with Charlton…the game he should have missed.

Athletic were 2 up after 45 minutes and Boothroyd holds his half time team talk on the pitch. It worked and the Hornets come back to nick a point.

John Eustace is dubbed a "warrior" by the gaffer but does himself no favours with the fans by suggesting in the media he wanted to stay at Stoke. Some warrior!!!

Damien Francis pops off the treatment table long enough to tell the world and his brother he`s 3 weeks away from a welcome return and Tamas Priskin is rumoured to be on his way back to Hungary with former club FC Gyori claiming it`s a done deal.

No such luck… on either count.

A 1-1 draw with Preston is the last thing on the players minds as they head for a 4 day 'team bonding` break in the United Arab Emirates but it does little for spirit as they throw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Turf Moor on their return.

Still, Collins John travelled and promised goals, goals goals…

Who wrote this rubbish!! Boothroyd did not hold his Charlton team talk on the pitch (i was there) and we drew 0-0 with Preston not 1-1 !!
