The Athletic 2023-12-09 at 21:30 (7 months ago)

Southampton manager Russell Martin — who both played with and managed Rhys Healey at MK Dons — called the Watford striker’s stoppage time equaliser “a rubbish goal.” It was the nature of the it, rather than the scorer that disappointed him though. Seven minutes into added time, Ryan Porteous’ long ball was headed down by Vakoun Bayo, before Healey’s volley from 20 yards slipped under keeper Gavin Bazunu’s body to see the game finish 1-1 at Vicarage Road. “It’s a rubbish goal, a really bad goal,” said Martin. “They smash it...

About Watford

Watford Football Club, commonly known as Watford F.C., is a professional football club based in Watford, Hertfordshire, England. The club was founded in 1881, making it one of the oldest football clubs in England. Watford F.C. has a rich history and has been a significant part of English football for over a century.

Watford F.C. plays its home games at Vicarage Road, a stadium with a capacity of over 20,000 spectators. The club's traditional colours are yellow and black, and their nickname is "The Hornets," a reference to their vibrant kit. The club's crest features a hart, a nod to Hertfordshire's rich history of deer herding.

The club spent much of its early history in the lower divisions of English football. However, under the management of Graham Taylor in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Watford F.C. experienced a rapid rise from the Fourth Division to the First Division, the top tier of English football at the time. This period also saw the club reach the FA Cup final in 1984, where they finished runners-up.

Watford F.C. has had several stints in the Premier League, the top tier of English football in the modern era. Their most recent promotion to the Premier League came in the 2014-2015 season. Despite being relegated in the 2019-2020 season, they secured an immediate return to the top flight by finishing second in the Championship in the 2020-2021 season.

Watford F.C. has produced several notable players over the years, including John Barnes, Luther Blissett, and Troy Deeney. The club has also been home to several well-known managers, including Quique Sánchez Flores, Walter Mazzarri, and Javi Gracia.

Off the pitch, Watford F.C. is known for its community involvement. The club's Community Sports and Education Trust has been recognised for its work in the local community, offering sports and education programmes to people of all ages.

Watford F.C. has also been notable for its ownership. The club was owned by pop music icon Elton John from 1976 to 1987, and again from 1997 to 2002. Elton John is still associated with the club as Honorary Life-President. Since 2012, the club has been owned by the Pozzo family, who also own Udinese Calcio in Italy and formerly owned Granada CF in Spain.

Watford F.C.'s journey through the divisions of English football, its community involvement, and its unique ownership history make it a fascinating club with a rich heritage. Despite the ups and downs, Watford F.C. remains a beloved institution in English football, known for its passionate fan base and commitment to the local community.
