Watford 1-1 West Ham
« on: August 22, 2006, 04:08:55 PM »

By Chris Bevan



Watford had to work hard to pick up their first point of the season in an entertaining draw with West Ham.

The Hornets came closest to scoring in the first half when Marlon King flicked Hameur Bouazza's cross against a post.

West Ham upped the pace after the break only for Watford to take the lead when King smashed the ball into the top corner from the edge of the area.

However, Bobby Zamora replied instantly by bundling home Paul Konchesky's cross to continue West Ham's unbeaten start.

Watford had been unlucky to lose out against Everton on the opening day of the season and they were clearly keen to make amends on home turf.

 
Aidy Boothroyd's side showed plenty of industry and effort in the opening minutes and had the best chances of the first half.

They were desperately close to taking the lead when Bouazza surged down the left and sent in a cross that King side-footed against the far post.

The Hornets' tactics were to get the ball into the box as often as possible and they almost paid dividends again soon after.

Another Bouazza cross was met by the head of Darius Henderson and Ashley Young reacted quickly to send an acrobatic overhead kick bouncing just wide.

The Hammers were struggling to create chances but they at least looked strong down the flanks where Konchesky and John Paintsil - on his first start - got forward at every opportunity.

But it was only after the break that the visitors began to put the Watford defence under any real pressure.

A deep cross from the impressive Paintsil was headed straight at Watford keeper Ben Foster by Konchesky.

And Foster was called into action again soon after when Harewood and Zamora linked up on the edge of the area, allowing Bowyer to drive in a low shot which the Watford keeper had to scramble to save.

Watford had only threatened sporadically since the restart but surprisingly took the lead on 63 minutes.

Ashley Young teed up King on the edge of the area and the former Gillingham striker sent his shot rocketing past the helpless Roy Carroll.

But the home side's lead lasted only seconds before West Ham were level.

Konchesky found space on the left and his low cross hit Zamora on the knee and flew into the net despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Straight after their equaliser, Hammers boss Alan Pardew sent on Teddy Sheringham and Yossi Benayoun for Marlon Harewood and Danny Gabbidon and switched his formation from 3-5-2 to 4-4-2.

Veteran striker Sheringham, 40, was making his 700th League appearance but he could not influence the outcome here.

It was Watford who came closest to grabbing a winner when only a superb save by Carroll stopped Anton Ferdinand from deflecting King's cross into his own net from close range.

Well.....I didn't see the game today....but Zamora's 2 goals on Saturday were hardly highlight reel material.  First one was a tap in about 2 inches away from the goal line.

The 2nd one.....MY GOD....that was one a de jokiest goals I see fuh a while.  De man get a ball in de box...pelt he foot behind de ball....BAWL OUT FUH WASA one time as he totally miskick.....de ball dribble bout 12 time before it trickle over de line wit everybody watchin.  A flukesier goal yuh couldn't hope to see.

On fire?  On paper.  In reality....not really.  At least...not after saturday game anyway.

You on something banned.  It have man like Rooney, Crouch, Defoe, Bent, Beatie, Johnson and company, and you calling Zamora.  He about 15th in line to get called up.  He need to do it for at least mid-season, before they start calling he name for a possible call-up.

For somebody who was trying to storm his way into the Soca Warriors line up, just to play in the WC, you would think Zamora would have the sense to at least be friendly with Shaka, as he's one of our elder statesmen in the game. Not ah chance. From what I was told, he never really talk to Shaka, or tried to form any friendship other than the usual changing room banter. Never even said more than hi a time or two to Shaka's wife. Not a friendly person atall. I know real men were overjoyed when he get blank. Jloyd was lil different, cause he born Trini and never tried to hide it.

I saw the game and Zamora scored a good goal this time.

But the game was entertaining and i saw nothing in watford that would make me suggest that they would survive and that carlos would not start on this team.

A. Young looked good and M. King is ah borse, and Shittu is ah borse too at de back, but odder than that, that side is ah bake side!!

ah love it!!

Zamora is 24/25 in a year or 2 he would probably score 20+ goals a season that would make him the top English striker in the league  that would definitely give him a English call up. He looks like a pure forward somebody that can score allot of goals which is something that the rest of the English forwards cannot do, unlike the bunch of haters on this site i wish him all the best i would feel proud to see a born trini or a person with trini heritage play for a team like England.

I don't have any animosity for Zamora, but the truth is that he is far down the pecking order in the England ranks, and it would take a great half season to earn a call-up.  Lets be honest, he would not have even be first choice for West ham if Ashton didn't break his ankle.  He took the opportunity, and is doing his bit to stake a claim for the starting spot, even after Ashton returns.  My take:  he will have to do a lot to earn an England call-up.  There is at least 7 guys in front of him right now.
