The pantomime season

That’s surely how we’re going to remember 2008/09 if it goes on the way it’s begun. Bizarre injuries, the goal that wasn’t, Watford conceding ridiculous numbers of penalties, a Watford keeper actually saving a penalty (never mind three in a row), sendings-off, deflected goals, unlikely comebacks – it’s not even November and there’s already been enough incident for two or three seasons.

And I’ll tell you what – it’s a hell of a lot more entertaining than last season. Aidy might be tearing his hair out, but for me at least, Watford matches have become something to look forward to again.

Hi lively and incident packed with never a dull moment ! Great fun for the neutral but stressful for us Watford fans.

Funnily enough, I didn't find it all that stressful. Once it became clear after half-time that we were going to defend our six-yard box like Michael Caine and co. in 'Zulu', without making any attempt to score a third, I fully expected Cardiff to score the goals they needed to get back in the game. I was just grateful we didn't let in three.
