Watford 1 Leeds United 2 (04/05/2013) 05/05/2013

trackback

1a. Oh God. Oh God. OhhhhhhhhHHHHHHH. AaaaarrrrgggHHHHHHHH. Bloody hell. Bloody f***ing hell. Bloody f***ing sodding hell.

1b. And so on.

1c. And some more.

1d. Look, we’re all grown-ups here, right? We like to think of you, dear reader, as someone who’s a bit brighter than the phone-in knee-jerkers who can only see things in the purest black and white, no shades in between. So we can take it as read, can’t we, that we’ve had a great season and have no cause for complaint? We can all agree that there’s nothing to moan about, especially not in the context of the last five years? And we all know that whoever the hell keeps offering playoff places around like sweeties to children would’ve had their hand bitten off. Yes, yes, yes.

1e. But you should be allowed a moment or two – a day or two – before perspective dulls the pain. This ought to hurt. When you turn away and distract yourself with other things, it ought to be staring you straight in the face whenever you look back. It ought to make you want to punch the wall and throw things and find some really destructive gardening to do. If I take solace in anything – and I’m struggling – then it’s in the reaction of Jonathan Hogg, whose post-match lap of honour was so reluctant and desultory that it barely took him beyond the centre circle and never, not for a moment, involved looking at anything other than his own feet. Lap of honour? Bollocks to that.

1f. It ought to hurt. It ought to hurt because we failed, how ever much you might try to dress it up. And because we have a second chance.

2. Pre-match, it felt like one of those special days. One of those surreal days, when strange and wonderful and memorable things happen. There’s a group of Leeds fans dressed as nuns at the end of Vicarage Road, wishing us success on the basis of hating ‘Ull. We pass Derek Payne, who’s carrying a large bag of socks down the road, away from the ground. (Is the punditry thing just a cover, I wonder, for a slow, methodical asset-stripping exercise?) A thunderstorm disturbs the spring calm. Richard Johnson, as near to my favourite Watford player ever as makes no difference, is on the pitch for the first time in a decade or more; applause for him, applause for Ron Rollitt, noise and colour everywhere.

This is Vicarage Road as it never is: passionate, optimistic, celebratory. Loud. There’s a flood of joyous tears building up behind a facade of quiet anticipation and gnawing eagerness. It’s a great day to be a Watford fan.

3. The rest is hard to make sense of, even now. And yet, in many ways, it’s quite simple. We were wracked by misfortune from the start: if Manuel Almunia’s warm-up injury seemed like a bad omen, then Jonathan Bond’s collision with Iketchi Anya went beyond mere portent, genuinely horrific even without the season-finale context. (For what it’s worth, there wasn’t a player out there, on either side, who wouldn’t have given the defender a nudge in that position, just to see whether anything happened. Standard practice, no particular malice. A booking, no more, was quite right.) We were left with our substitute-substitute keeper, a pool of blood on the pitch and enough injury time to wonder whether we ought to be consuming half-time lucky chocolate during our interval or Hull’s.

We were surprisingly bright and lively before all of that, Hogg denied an obvious penalty by an unsighted referee. That would’ve settled the nerves, and put some pressure on Hull. You wanted us to play with some freedom, not be too burdened by the occasion and too distracted by other matters…and we did all of that, until our flow was broken by the injury and our concentration interrupted by a goal that never was for Cardiff. Even then, we were back in it quickly: Almen Abdi’s superb equaliser setting off celebrations that, no matter how exuberant, felt like an aperitif for what might follow. And then Cardiff went ahead during our interval…

4a. And then Hull pulled it back and went ahead. And this, for me, is where the real regret lies, where we ought to be kicking ourselves hard enough to raise egg-shaped bruises. Because surely, surely, we spent the week stressing the need to take care of our own business before we worried about whatever Hull were doing. I’ve had one phrase rattling around in my head for days: just win the game. There’d be nothing worse than having other results go our way and failing to have done our own bit. And lo, there isn’t anything bloody worse.

4b. Really, we pissed away the most crucial half hour (so far) of the entire campaign. The atmosphere went flat, the team visibly deflated, the frustration grew until Troy Deeney (the first person you’d want in a last-ditch quest for a winner, the first person you’d want on the teamsheet at Leicester) was dismissed for an absurd, idiotic lunge that was only necessary in the sense that, presumably, his head would’ve exploded otherwise.

What we were doing? Collectively, we admitted defeat. We played a third of the match in dismal silence, no tempo and no urgency; it was as if the final score had come in from the Hull-Cardiff game, leaving us with nothing to play for. Whatever else happens, just win the game.

5. And that would’ve been enough. We were starting to rally as the half dragged on, Paddy Kenny denying us with one superb stop to a deflected shot that appeared to have wrong-footed him. But we’d wasted so much time: when news of Cardiff’s improbable equaliser came through, we had fifteen minutes to find the goal that’d send us up. We had fifteen minutes, potentially some of the most memorable and heart-stopping moments of our football-supporting lives.

We collapsed under the weight. Jack Bonham’s desperate fumble took most of the attention, but in truth, we were over-committed in a way that only a Zola team chasing a winner in the last five minutes can be. A great stampede towards water without thought of safety. It’s the kind of goal that you concede when you’ve gone for broke. Sometimes you just get broke.

I question whether we needed to be in that position. I wonder how different things might’ve been if we’d played for the whole second half rather than just a bit of it. I wonder…and I’ll never know. Bugger.

6. At some point afterwards, on the outside of a couple of much-needed beers, the smiles start to return. The conversation gradually turns away from regret and despair, the banter starts to free itself from the gallows. And Pat from Dublin, whose boundless, irrepressible optimism has been on life support for the last couple of hours, turns with bright eyes and says decisively:

“But there’s no way we’ll lose the away leg, is there? Right?”

And the earth starts spinning again…

My neighbour, who knows, said, “That’s football—and that’s Watford.”

2. Mike S - 05/05/2013

Perfect, ig. Thank you!

3. Fred Riley - 05/05/2013

It’ll really stick in the craws of Tigers’ fans that Leeds got them promotion, after the team couldn’t even beat a relegated Bristol City to do it off their own bat. ‘Ull and Leeds really, really, really hate each other.

Prawn - 05/05/2013

Ciao Fred, Good to see you writing on “Things Yellow” after far too long. Will we be hearing from Ian Lay and Gary Smith next?

Just an obscure thought, but how must SNG be feeling this morning? His new club gain a “quality, (probably unexpected) scalp”. At the same time, that victory means his family team, that he spent his whole playing life giving his heart to, lose automatic promotion because of that victory. “Bittersweet” is perhaps the word that sums it up?

4. Dougie Brimson - 05/05/2013

Perfectly put. But heads went down after the injury and for whatever reason, we lacked a leader on the pitch with the gumption to get them back up.

As for Deeney, he was an idiot but it’s not the first time we’ve seen his petulance and a sending off has been coming the last few games.

We’re still in it, that’s what counts. And if you’d have handed me the play-offs in september, I’d have bitten your hands off.

So Wembley it is…. 😉

5. Roger Smith - 05/05/2013

Thunk 4b sums it up perfectly, and I hold my hand up as I went quiet too. Partly, it was because I saw the Deeney dismissal coming, and after he’d completely lost it at one point against Blackburn, Gianfranco should have too.

Criticism of Bonham is unfair. In the first, Ekstrand tried to clear it, but the ball strikes Poleon and breaks kindly for him. Then, one on one, an attacker is always expected to score. Bonham was right to come off his line, and we should applaud the quality of the lob, which was just too good for him.

Similarly, it is easy to criticise a forward who isn’t scoring, but Vydra works his socks off, and does rely on the service from midfield. Anxious about the play-offs, but feeling deep down that Deeney and Vydra might come good in the home leg. COYH!

6. putajumperon - 05/05/2013

Yellow card for the Bond injury is an interesting observation… and you may well be right,

I’m clearly no referee, nor do I see things objectively at Watford matches.

I agree that many players would, and will, intentionally nudge the opposition, and in the main little happens. This one was a deliberate act to cause a collision between two players. The resulting injuries are never foreseen however they are the result of one person’s premeditated actions.

When so many other intentional acts that cause injury lead to a red card, why not this one?

Ian Grant - 05/05/2013

It’s manslaughter rather than murder, essentially, isn’t it? (Not literally, obviously. I hope.)

Vaughn Smith - 06/05/2013

But manslaughter can still result in a life sentence…

Simon - 07/05/2013

Having just seen the incident myself i think he’s a lucky boy to stay on the pitch. It’s one thing to nudge a player and hope the ref misses it to get the ball. This was pushing a player going full pelt towards a keeper coming out in the opposite direction. He may not have wished hospital for Bond but to think he didn’t in some way hope to cause some sort of injury is being a little generous.

SteveG - 07/05/2013

And by similar logic, Deeney might have been lucky to escape a straight red whether or not he actually touched the player.
While there is undoubtedly some shameful play acting that goes on, I don’t think this came into that category. If a player can see a reckless and dangerous lunge coming and takes effective evasive action to stop his leg being broken, it doesn’t make the tackle any less dangerous.
There does have to be some consideration of intent as well as outcome.

7. paul caruso - 05/05/2013

I’ve just pulled up some dwarf conifers with my bare hands and killed a couple of hyacinths, was that too literal ig?

Ian Grant - 05/05/2013

Good work, Paul. I’ve just cleared our garden path of brambles. Do any other readers have gardening tales they’d like to share?

hornetboy84 - 05/05/2013

well it was sunny …. tree trunks dug up and rockery demolished and shipped to the Ricky dump … ! En route to pick up tickets for Leicester – so yes cathartic.

8. SlovakHorn - 05/05/2013

“Just win the game” – it’s what I was saying all week. I just had this sense that Hull would not beat Cardiff and all we had to do was win. But for some reason, for that all too crucial 30 minutes, everyone forgot that.

Watching from afar, pacing the room, heartrate through the roof, texting to my mate who was there it all seemed totally bizarre. Didn’t anyone want to win this? There was no urgency. no passion – and that was true for the crowd too. That game was there for us to win – win easily. Yes if we’d got the penalty we were due in the first ten minutes – and the red card that would have had to logically follow that decision – it probably would have all been acedemic, but where did everyone go for that 30 minutes?

We can point to the injustices, the freakish injuries to goalkeepers but in the bright light of Sunday afternoon it has to come down to the fact that for the most important 30 minutes of our season we all went missing.

Maybe in wasn’t up to the crowd there to lift the players – I for one have no idea why they weren’t going for it (if I were 30 minutes from the Premier league I’d be giving everything) – but it sure wouldn’t have hurt any!

On another day we take one of those half chances, the keeper doesn’t pull out heroics and we win and move on. So maybe this will all be a forgotten memory on May 27th when we win at Wembly. But perhaps we all need to keep it in our minds for the future. We – the crowd, the club – COULD have made a difference for that 30 minutes. We could have given the team the spark it needed. We could have roared them onwards and upwards. We are the 12th man and on Saturday we seemed to forget that for that crucial period.

Lets get it right for the rest of May

9. MartinG - 05/05/2013

Superb points as always. And Roger has just summed up what I was going to. Everyone has now written us off and have Brighton going up. Let’s make them look stupid.

10. Vaughn Smith - 05/05/2013

Will young Bonham forever be remembered as the new Gary Plumley I wonder?

Steve T - 05/05/2013

Vaughn, that’s a cheap comment – Jack is a full Watford employee who hopefully can recover from this, within 2 matches over the later summer.

Gary Plumley was the barman-son of the Chief Exec at the time of the 1987 FA Cup semi final, pulled in by GT, probably under pressure from Eddie Plumley.

Hopefully, we have now had our bad luck and can regroup and go and hit Leicester again and get back to Wembley again.

Vaughn Smith - 05/05/2013

GT was under no pressure from Eddie Plumley. He tried plenty of other avenues including trying to persuade Pat Jennings to come out of retirement to no avail. Bonham was patently at fault for both goals, as was Plumley for 3 of the 4 in 87. I feel very sorry for the young man – it’s likely that he’ll struggle to get over this, and there’s absolutely no way that he should figure in the squads for the play off games. Hopefully the FA will give the club dispensation to pull in another ‘keeper on an emergency loan given that 2 of the 3 first team squad ‘keepers are injured.

11. The Great Big O - 05/05/2013

Before the match, my son wanted us to go and buy a radio so he could listen to Hull’s progress throughout. I refused: we needed to win, I said, and not worry about how Hull had done – we could find out in the end after we’d finished the job at hand.

Now I wish Zola had got all the mobile phone masts, radio transmitters and satellite feeds switched off.

Anyway, the point you rightly make in 4b wouldn’t have happened in the very old days. The game would have been played in beautiful ignorance of events at the KC. But these days, we seem to think a football experience isn’t complete without being plugged into radio, Twitter and text updates in addition to the match we’re watching.

Shame, really. If we’d ignored what was happening elsewhere, our football experience yesterday could have been utterly utterly complete.

12. Derek - 05/05/2013

I thought the atmosphere up to the point where Hull went in front was the best it’s been for years. It’s nice to see that we can still generate some passion at the Vic.

As things panned, I don’t think we would be justified in claiming we deserved a win. Troy Deeney has done well this year, but the challenge that got him sent off was daft, considering he was already on a yellow. Seeing it on the TV later, he didn’t appear to make any contact, and he was certainly nowhere near Brown’s shin which he was clasping so firmly. Perhaps he injured it as he was rolling on the ground.

I think that Matt is being a little generous to the officials. In the Observer today, their reporter called the decision to only show Poleon a yellow card was a “dereliction of duty”. There is a clip of the foul on YouTube on it looks like he didn’t just nudge Anya to see what might happen, he pushes Anya directly towards Bond. I’m sure he didn’t intend to cause Bond to be hospitalised, I doubt he thought anything at all.

if Mr Salisbury was unsighted for the Hogg penalty, the lino must have had a good view.

There was also the handball claim late in the second half that he missed.

When was the last time we were given a penalty?

Enough griping! I hope that the players can pick themselves up for the matches against Leicester. Perhaps we may see Alex Geijo, I can’t go Thursday night, but hopefully next Sunday will have a happier ending.

Ian Grant - 05/05/2013

I am being generous (dunno about Matt) in not mentioning the rest of an immensely irritating refereeing performance, granted. I haven’t seen the Bond incident again (because I don’t really want to see any of it again), so you and the Observer may have a point. And you’re right that you’d hope the linesman would have had something to say about the Hogg penalty; the referee viewed it through a crowd. The handball was never a penalty in a million years, though.

hornetboy84 - 06/05/2013

I think its about time that you and Matt admit you are the same person!

stu partridge - 06/05/2013

Agreed about Brown. There is no doubt that Deeneys tackle was reckless and ‘yellow card-able’ but TV shows that he made no contact with Brown.
Can I just add that friends close to the team reliably informed me that as Bonham was warming up to come on after Bonds injury , Michael Brown approached him and said with words to the effect…’bad luck son, you re about to cost your team promotion’ …And how prophetic he proved!
I have no blame for Bonham or even for Brown in a modern game where gentlemanly sporting behaviour has long disapeared but Deeneys attempt to take Brown out may have been borne from Browns previous remarks.

13. drbillyo - 05/05/2013

I’m almost angry at Hull for missing their pen, and especially Cardiff for scoring theirs. Watching in a pub with both games gone I was quietly resigned to clearing my diary for play off matches. I was calm. But then. Oh then. It is, as the say the hope that kills you. Ten minutes of exciting, glorious, misguided hope. It killed me.

Still got more hope though. COYO!

14. Rod Green glove. - 05/05/2013

No, turning point was the badly misjudged placed ref who did not see what millions at the vic and on TV saw… blatant pen! Followed by many spoiling tactics by Leeds and concluded finally with the Ko of Jono Bond.
Even after that atrocious situation Leeds and in particular Brown chose to bring the game to the level that he his game has fallen by complaining and contributing to the Deeney sending off.
A low life footballer making a living at a club that will always be associated with the label, Dirty Leeds!
For me there was only one side who went out to play the game to win and that was not Leeds. Lets just hope next season Leeds slip further down and into Div 1.
Anyway, roll on Thursday and hopefully, let justice be done on our road to the Prem.

15. Drewoneone - 05/05/2013

Hacked off (so that’s twice in 24 hours then) the branches of an apple tree today, nearly removing one of my own arms with the saw in the process. That was my most destructive gardening for a long time and boy was it a harsh form of therapy. I need to concentrate on my own game and not what might be going on elsewhere in the world……..

COYH

16. ramsgate horn - 05/05/2013

Agree with all the points, we had sad luck with the injuries and seemed to shoot ourselves in the foot, big o is right of course but thats progress
Deeney was the poorest ive seen from him all season, his booking was probably born of frutsration, felt really sorry for Bonham, poor lad was like a rabbit in the headlights, lets hope he can comeback
need one of the 2 main keepers fit or possibly an emergency loan
lets hope we can come back and do ourselves justice

Andy73 - 05/05/2013

It’s testament to the talent and maturity of Bond that the replacement of one 19-year-old goalie with another should be so clearly significant to our chances yesterday.

Deeney has been looking increasingly tired and frustrated in recent weeks. Coming back fresh(er) on Sunday could be a blessing.

17. Leavesden 'orn - 05/05/2013

Hi,
I think more should be made of a major turning point in the game, Deeneys needless dismissal. With a rookie keeper, you need defensive support, and 11 men, focused. This was a pressure game, for both the players and crowd. With 10 men you will be stretched, especially as the pressure goes up and susceptible to a swift counter attack. Leeds had already made their intentions clear by humping the ball out of a packed defence. (Bond injury and goal scored this way) Watch the replays, Deeney sprints at speed over 25 yards into a reckless tackle (already on a yellow) with only one probable outcome. Needless!!! So now, in a game you need to win, do you commit numbers against a packed defence playing a counter attacking game, or do you show caution? Ekstrand was already playing further forward, but why was our main in form stricker in the bath? We don’t have a gung-ho type team, and I am not sure this is the right approach. And before you know it, 1-2. Don’t know about you, but it was very difficult to keep track of time.
Strange kick off time, 15 mins delays, expectations, Rookie keeper introduction, following the Hull game on the radio, noises from the crowd, The Hull game ebbing and flowing, Deeney going, team reorganisation, the breakaway goal. Before you know it, end, disappointment. I think you are right, we collapsed under the weight.
This was like no other game I have ever experienced. In the past, on MOTD they show these types of games ebbing and flowing and watching the fans emotions. From the comfort of your sofa is one thing, experiencing it another.
So Wembley it is….

18. hornetboy84 - 05/05/2013

(We) The crowd definitely failed to perform. I personally tried but we should have been celebrating a performance – urging a win and then seeing what happened.
Events conspired against us but havimg re-watched the full game and not even fast forwarding the injuries (!) – a few things become clearer.
a) We will never get a penalty. I forsee someone throwing a hand grenade at Vydra in the semi’s and the ref failing to spot it.

b) Bonham – no blame at all for the first goal and really the error may just have been in getting a hand to it at all which made it look .an error rather than a near save for a perfect lob. Maybe straw clutching there but all he did was stop 2-3 mins of potential pressure and maybe sneaking a goal. (unlikely)

c) Deeney. Oh ffs! why end your year the way you started it !!
That really cost us more than anything – but maybe the stage is now set for Vydra at Leicester.

d) Paddy bloody Kenny. When all is said and done – his stop to Vydras deflected shot was superb. That was in all day long… and that for me just summed up our day….. just NOT meant to be.

e) But at times we played really well on Satrurday…

f) And I hope the end of game reception actually gave the players heart as I would back us against anyone head to head – nothing to fear…. just need the energy – from somewhere – 3 more games? yes please!

19. RS - 06/05/2013

Left the brambles to keep the foxes out, did dig the veggie patch with expectant seagulls looking for worms.. Didn’t go near the greenhouse which was moaning in the wind; heads up boys and girls 🙂

20. andrewgraham - 06/05/2013

sorry to you watford fans..but we owed you that win after cardiff a fiew years ago! good luck in play offs tho

21. Budahorn - 06/05/2013

I feel Almunia is important as he seems to know what he will do with the ball before it’s in his hands and many times on Saturday players were in good positions but did not get the ball.

To me the ref did us no favours. Probably bottled the penalty as it was too early to send a man off. Throughout FF was bundled off the ball. Fall over and he’s booked – no win. This happened directly before Deeney sending off – I was up and shouting and missed the moment of his madness.

First goal – our players seemed to lose concentration when the stadium erupted for the ghost goal at Hull.

This match left the same feeling for me as after the Watford v Liverpool & Milford FC quarter final replay.

Roller coaster day of emotions – so near yet ….. Have to resign myself to watching the rest of the season from afar.

Ian Grant - 07/05/2013

Re: the penalty. Let’s be definite about this, because it was quite clear from the Rookery: he couldn’t see it. There was a crowd of players between him and the foul, simple as that. Now, you might be right to say that he should’ve been better positioned, and certainly right to say that the linesman should’ve had an opinion, but he didn’t bottle it and he didn’t get it wrong. He didn’t see it properly.

Mike S - 07/05/2013

Very hard to expect the lino to see that, given his distance and the fact that there is a defender immediately to Hogg’s right, probably blocking his view.

The referee’s crime is this: He is in a good position, but when the ball is play forward and to the right (to FF, I think), he inexplicably moves to the right, rather than maintain his diagonal, and keep the play between himself and the active assistant.

The ball was clearly heading towards the box; maintaining his diagonal would have given him a decent view of much of the penalty area. Instead, he followed the ball, and got stuck behind a crowd. But you’re right, he didn’t bottle it.

Ian Grant - 07/05/2013

Thanks, Mike. A very thorough and expert answer, with an excellent mind’s-eye diagram. Gold star to you.

22. stu partridge - 06/05/2013

Well done Ian for picking yourself and somehow finding the mental strength to write that report so quickly. Ive only just now managed to watch the highlights.

Everything that needs to be said has been already, on a busy and interesting thread.

All I have to add is a couple of positives to take into Thursdays game

1- IMO Morgan had Deeney in his pocket for most of the game just recently (its a credit to Deeney that he still managed to score), and so I have a feeling that Geijo s very impressive technical skills will give the Leicester defence a different and perhaps unexpected threat to deal with. I strongly believe if Deeney had not been so impressive this season we would be looking at a 20 goal Geijo, so lets hope he plays….and scores!

2- Form table for the last 16 games ( long enough to be a true measure of a teams quality) sees Watford 3rd and Leicester 23rd.
Despite a good last minute win against a decent Forest team , Leicester are still a team struggling to find the winning formula.

(form table here for all to see)

http://weekendfootball.co.uk/analysis/form.asp?l=2&season=13&formtype=&gamescount=16

23. Sequel - 06/05/2013

If, as Matt once said, Carl Dickinson is an “early Robbo tribute act”, then Michael Brown must surely be a ready-made replacement for Robbie Savage in the tw*t stakes. The most irritating little tick I’ve seen all season. And there’s been alot of competition…..

24. Tim Turner - 06/05/2013

Thunk 4b is spot on. I spent most of the second half thinking, why isn’t everyone singing? It wasn’t as if Hull had actually won – just because they were winning, was that any reason to give up hope?

It raises the interesting question of who is ‘responsible’ for the singing at Vicarage Road. There were clearly lots of us who wanted to keep the atmosphere from the first half going, but none of us individually had the power to do so (I was already so hoarse that I’d had to lower my voice an octave just to be able to make any noise at all). Is it all down to the teenagers at the back of the Rookery? In which case, can someone have a sharp word with them before next Sunday?

25. Harefield Hornet - 07/05/2013

Did anyone else have to run the gauntlet of the Leeds morons who had been allowed to drape their banners and take up position in Vicarage Road to goad our fans who were leaving the ground following the “lap of disappointment”. Men, Women and children alike were subjected to racist and disgusting abuse form these idiots who were clearly spoiling for a fight.

A masterful piece of crowd control by the police.

Just about rounded the afternoon off.

26. JohnM - 07/05/2013

Had to work on the day of the match. With regards to noise levels, and having been in the position, over many years of working during matches, I can vouch for the noise levels, at 12-40pm, in the Tesco Extra car park, being the loudest I have ever heard.
Us supporters must ensure that Bonham receives no blame for the goals. A young lad, with no match experience, thrown in in such an important game? I hope he can recover.

27. straightnochaser - 08/05/2013

Just a word for those posting here suggesting the recruitment of a loan goalkeeper. The FL rules only allow for emergency goalkeeper loans when ALL professional keepers at a Club are certified unfit (medical certification has to be faxed to the FL offices as proof). Therefore, unless young Bonham succumbs to illness or injury it would seem not to be a permitted option in any case….

28. Joe Reilly - 09/05/2013

Hi Ian, Apologies for the delay with my gardening tale does aggresively cleaning the deck for four hours on Sunday qualify? Unfortunately Pat’s optimism wasn’t correct on this occasion but I’m sure if he is pushed he will predict a 3-0 win on Sunday! Enjoy it (hopefully).
