'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dyche: 'Very, very proud'

Sean Dyche was a happy man at full-time today, having watched his side weather the storm (both the weather & Middlesbrough's pressure!), to secure an 11th-placed finish.

The Goldenboys took a battering in the first period with a number of superb stops from Scott Loach keeping the scores level.

In the second half though, Watford took the lead, Chris Iwelumo finishing from close-range to record his fourth league strike of the season.

'Boro equalised five minutes from time through top-scorer Marvin Emnes but it was to be Dyche's side that would have the last laugh when Troy Deeney finished a Craig Forsyth cross.

Speaking afterwords to The Official Site, Dyche said:

'Players get you the sack, they say. I don't agree with that. I love my players, I really do.'

The boss continued:

'The reason is because I felt they showed all the characteristics during that game today, which have held us in such good stead across this year.

'Winning today was a great achievement, but the overall picture of an 11th-placed finish and 64 points is an achievement which makes me very, very proud indeed of this group of players.'

Congratulations to Sean and the players on a tremendous season, from all at Vital Watford.

Played great today... Maybe Mapps & Taylors last match in a Watford shirt... Loach played really well too... Everyone was at least 95% today... Which is what U need to cross the line & collect the 3 points... Farewell 2011-2012 season... Bring on the "favorites for relegation" tag.. We'll over come them once again next season... Watford is here to stay as one of the most consistent teams in the champoinship... Or higher... Other teams come & go Watford remain... COYH.... SWALLOW MY PRIDE......... WELL DONE DYCHE.....
