    Cassetti, Anya, Almunia, Hogg, Foresteri... what a side we had.

    Great clip but I actually prefer the sky reporter reporting live as it happened.

    Every time I watch this I seem to see something new to enjoy. Today I've noticed that at around 1.50 if you look closely you can see Kasper Schmeical taking up some kind of kung fu stance as the fans run on the pitch!

    Anya’s contribution to that goal was fantastic. You only see it in full in the replay.

    I remember watching that Jockanese - England qualifier and asking myself "...we sold him??????????".

    The bloke's pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth...

    That's flown by, really. Can still remember it so vividly though, as I'm sure can anyone who was lucky enough to be there.

    Yup. I can also vividly remember that berk Richard Short singing over the PA at the end of the game, drowning out the sound of the fans singing Que Sera Sera with his own songs. Pillock.

    I was on honeymoon in the Lake District and didn't have the guts to ask my wife if I could watch it in the pub.

    ... so you left her there and went to the Vic, and the rest is history?

    Thanks for this thread, first enjoyable Watford moment I've had for a while.
    Reminded me also why I disliked Michael Oliver so much - always looks to give a "Hollywood" penalty decision late in a game, with an exaggerated point to the spot. Then I remembered he gave us a pen in the Cup semi-final too :).
    Still can't get over that Knockaert dive though, so blatant

    I was on holiday in Lanzarote watching in a bar. I walked out in disgust at the penalty decision, knowing we were going out and missed all the drama!

    No matter how many more Watford games I go to in my life, nothing will ever compare to that feeling of devastation that the whole season is over and all our amazing play was ended by a dive followed by the most explosive rush of serotonin 20 seconds later. It was 2 polar opposite ends of the emotional spectrum experienced in such a short space of time.

    Yes we lost the final 2 weeks later, but football is all about moments. If you can't enjoy that moment then football is not for you.

    I wonder what VAR would do with it now?

    You'd hope they would overturn it and book the cheating git.

    My brother wasn't "allowed " to go to football during his first marriage!

    ...and we'd have finished 2-2 and gone out on pens :).
    I'm still amazed that Knockaert went down the middle. Almunia was so immobile at that stage of his career, he had no chance of getting to any of the corners. Even the follow up K didn't try for a corner...

    Yes, every time I look at the follow up I'm stunned he missed it as Almunia needed a hoist to get back up.

    My fiancee despises football, only managed to get her to a game about 2/3 times over the course of our 7 years together but can't imagine her ever saying I can't go!

    7 years ? Isn't it time you set a date? Once you're married she'll say "no" :).

    So much about it is iconic, and that's in no small part thanks to Bill Leslie's commentary - the shocked expression on Cassetti's face when he yells "PENALTY!" and him going "Absolutely astonishing" after the double save just before he realizes what the hell's going on and the "most extaordinary finish" happens a mere 12 seconds later - all this and more contribute to this two-minute drama.

    Didn't Almunia **** his hamstring the week before? Was that why he missed the Leeds game, or have I imagined that?

    If so, even more incredible that he recovered to make the second save.

    Yes yes, it was a good goal and all but my favourite bit was seeing everyone's favourite ex-sporting director making a cameo appearance at 2:54. It simply wouldn't have happened without him.

    I was in Champs, a sports bar in Sheffield, with my daughters and a couple of Sheffield mates, who were happy to be honorary Golden Boys for the day.

    If it's any consolation, Knight GT, they all went berserk when we scored, but I just couldn't compute what had actually and stood there like a Davies/Sarr cardboard cut-out...

    With VAR the penalty would have been overturned, and we might well have gone on to lose the game.

    Funny situation really, but then it's not very often a team scores off the opposition's penalty.
