How cruel. I'm just catching up on events at Vicarage Strada and only heard about the dramatic penalty miss and breakaway winner late last night. What a finish by Deeney! And what a lay back too! It was a brilliant goal and, given the huge pressure, it was fantastically executed.
But what about poor Nigel Pearson? When that dodgy penalty was awarded - the latest attempt by the rival families to block Udinese Calcio's promotion charge - Pearson must have have been planning his team for Wembley and running through the tactics in his head. Then came the save, and the follow up save, and Pearson was thinking about extra time as Watford broke and...no, no, no, no, no, nooooooooooooo!!!!!
Did Nigel Pearson really deserve that? Of course he didn't. It should have been Hull City breaking away to score the winner. Oh no, sorry, the club he walked out on are already in the Premiership aren't they?
Karma? They are making a series entitled "My Name is Nigel" as we speak!
