    The Last Match: Manchester City - Watford 4:2

    At the half time interval Watford were heading into dreamland, by the end of the game they had been beaten. Fernando Forestieri gave the visitors a deserved lead mid way through the half and after Ikechi Anya had show the intent by getting himself pulled to the field in the first five minutes. Troy Deeney added a second some time later and there was a possibility of more before the interval.
    The second half was different with the locals making substitutions whichhleped to turn the game against Watford. Sergio Aguero scored his firest at 59. minutes and equalised at 78. Aluksandar Kolarov scored the third with three minutes remaining and Sergio Aguero had time to add another before the end.

    Perhaps luck to escape from Bournemouth with one point but not from the efforts of Bournemouth's new friend, the referee.

    Giuseppe Sannino parla:

    "I am proud of my lads because today saw my team give this emotion."


    "It is a little bit bitter because at 2-2 we were still in the game. We just couldn't manage the last few minutes.
    2


    "At the end of the first half I had this desire (to win) but I knew the game was not finished and we had to play for the 90 minutes, and more."


    "In the second half Manchester City were unbelievable and showed us their full strength. I tried to change things but the quality of Manchester City is far superior than any change you can make tactically."

    Very nice ak. You cannot beat the smell of an oak log on an open fire.

    I don't suppose you have any crumpets and butter with a long toasting fork behind the bar. ;)

    I figured if I put the banner into Imageshack and loaded it from there it would stay big.

    The old qustions and answers

    1. Who scored Watford's first ever Division 1 goal? Gerry Armstrong
    2. Who scored Watford's last Premiership goal? Marlon King
    3. In 1987 Watford played which Brazilian team in a friendly? São Paulo FC

    New questions and no answers

    1. Which Watford footballer scored most goals in one season?
    2. In 1997-98 Watford beat one team 0-4 on their travels, who?
    3. Which Watford player's middle names were John Giblin?

    A clue for number three is he is in the collage.
