After the elation of the win over Blackburn Rovers ensured Luton Town retained their Championship status, at least for another season, yesterday (Sunday) provided the icing on the cake.

Now I’m not one to normally gloat over the misfortune of other clubs but when it comes to Watford I, like others, tend to make an exception.

Despite a brave struggle, a struggle that ultimately ended in failure, Watford slipped to a 3-2 defeat at the Emirates Stadium thereby ensuring they plunged through the relegation trapdoor and back into the Championship.

Their Premier League demise means that the 2020 / 2021 season will see two eagerly awaited clashes between the clubs, two, what the media call, M1 derby fixtures.

It seems an age since the clubs last met in a league match, but it didn’t help when we were languishing in non-league football and they were on the march towards the Premier League.

I’ll not be the only Hatter looking forward to these games but my only fear is that they’ll take place early in the season when we could still be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and playing behind-closed-doors.

Please don’t let it be so.

  • Hi mh, see the town are supposedly putting a bid in for a Charlton midfielder a 20 year old. Now I don’t see the need for another. Unless as I hear it there are moves away from the town on the cards or they see him as a wingback in the making. What do you think

    • Alfie Doughty, good prospect but only made his breakthrough this season. I’d be looking for someone with a bit more experience but we’ll see.

  • Hi all, maybe 1 for the future to learn in and around the experience guys we do have…with o’kane to come in again I don’t really see the need unless as chris says maybe the likes of tunicliff and macca are moved on..think nj likes his tried and tested mid players…

    • Hi Alan, I’m not sure the people you mentioned will be the ones moving on. Although I agree nj does seem to have more confidence in others. Could be that one of other midfield players is moving on up.

  • Hi all the release of macca & butters & the new contracts offered shows nj knows & trusts the players around him….

  • Hi Alan, yes he’s proven at this level an knows the club. But at his age is it worth it. Or get in a young hungry goal scorer?
