Decision on Watford v Huddersfield to be made tomorrow morning

Watford Observer: Picture: Action Images Picture: Action Images

A decision on whether Watford’s game with Huddersfield Town will go ahead as planned will be made at 9am tomorrow morning.

There was a brief meeting between all the relevant parties today and it was agreed a decision would be made tomorrow morning, the club have confirmed in the last hour.

Snow continues to fall in Hertfordshire and across the country. Earlier today the Hornets stated they “will be salting and gritting all club-owned areas inside and outside the stadium, including access points which lead to and adjoin public roads.

“The Vicarage Road playing surface has a covering of snow on it, however the pitch's undersoil heating system means that this would not cause any issue with the condition of the pitch surface.

“The club will be liaising closely with local authorities responsible for the care of areas which fall outside of the club's control.”

Better to postpone now if there is any doubt about the match being played. No fun for visiting fans, or travelling home fans from further afield such as me in Suffolk, arriving to find out that its been canned !! Selfish but sensible.

If this doesn't go ahead then the authorities should hang their heads in shame.

As long as the area around the stadium is clear and no more snow, the game should go ahead.
If not, **** health and safety ****

9am is sensible as should be just before Huddersfield fans would need to set off. Need to publish the result quickly though.

I hate snow as well. Yet, I remember going all the way to Huddersfield and when we got to the station the 'old bill' said the game was off. Let's just hope the game goes ahead but it will probably be down to the council as to the state of access. Remember you old guys when we were on the Mtach of the Day when all the fans turned up to clear the pitch of snow? We won 5-1 I think but now it is not down to the state of the ground but what happens outside and if Huddersfield get there on time.

Yes Andy, the one hastily sent camera perched on top of a BBC van filming from the hospital. FA Cup 5th round day and nation has a treat - a 3rd div game Watford v Rotherham, as only 4 games survived the snow and none in the Cup.

Game started a few minutes late as soon as RUFC got changed as their coach was late in arriving.

The game was called off on the Thursday but reinstated due to the efforts in clearing the snow.

Goals from Endean Lees 2 and Whalley, cannot remember who scored the first goal, maybe Scullion or Endean.

I think the game you are talking about was '60s and we were the only game on in the london area.

Lots of Arsenal fans turned up in the Rookery. Arsenal and Watford chants!!

Beat Carlisle 5-1 and went second in the table, as I remember and didn't play again 'till end of Feb - March time, by which time we were mid table.

Still got a cut out pic from the Observer of me clearing the snow with Pat Malloy, great times.

Absolutely ridiculous, the pozzo's promise us premiership silky football but lack the initiative to buy sufficient pitch heating facilities. If this game is put back, it will say a lot about the club's ambition. The forecast predicted snow a few days ago, why was nothing done then? It is this failure to think ahead and be pro-active that will be the clubs downfall. We cannot afford to push games back at this VITAL part of the season as it will completely kill our momentum. Before you know it our exciting play-off hunt will transmogrify into the proverbial mid-table settling.

what a tool you are!!.we had the pitch and undersoil heating sorting months before the pozzos took over.we have now probably one of the best pitches in the championship and most teams in the prem.there are no issues regarding whether or not the pitch is playable.did you see man utd's pitch on wed?our pitch is in much better condition than their's.the only reason it will be called off is because of the problems outside the stadium.i agree with previous posts that if shops can stay open around the area,why can't the stadium be allowed to play a game.the whole health and safety issue is over the top now.i for one will be gutted if the game is called off due to do gooders poking their noses in.

Sadly if our pitch was as you say 'one of the best pitches in the championship' I think our home form would be a lot better. Our style of play suits good pitches so there is no excuse for us to not be winning more of our home games by excellent margins if we really do have a pitch as excellent as you claim.

Rookeryphil you are a one of the classic pessismistic watford fans that we have grown to detest at the Vic. Our home form has been ropey due to the fact that teams come and sit back. The pitch is fantastic, the team is fantastic, and the weather conditions have done us no favour but the club is doing all it can to get the game on. So why don't you sit back, take a look at both your statements and your mentality, and stop posting such unthoughtful, meaningless posts on this website.

what a tool you are!!.we had the pitch and undersoil heating sorting months before the pozzos took over.we have now probably one of the best pitches in the championship and most teams in the prem.there are no issues regarding whether or not the pitch is playable.did you see man utd's pitch on wed?our pitch is in much better condition than their's.the only reason it will be called off is because of the problems outside the stadium.i agree with previous posts that if shops can stay open around the area,why can't the stadium be allowed to play a game.the whole health and safety issue is over the top now.i for one will be gutted if the game is called off due to do gooders poking their noses in.
Sadly if our pitch was as you say 'one of the best pitches in the championship' I think our home form would be a lot better. Our style of play suits good pitches so there is no excuse for us to not be winning more of our home games by excellent margins if we really do have a pitch as excellent as you claim.

are you for real?we played brighton in the fa cup in jan 2011,which is probably what your article is reffering to.and yes our pitch back then was woefull.do you not follow the news about our pitch replacement in june last year?.our home form is not brilliant,but that is due to our outstanding away form which is the best in the championship.things can only improve at home,maybe the expectation gets to the players.personally this season has been the most exiting football i have ever seen us play.i would rather see us lose trying to pass the ball than win with boothroyd "long ball" tactics.

Rookeryphil you are a one of the classic pessismistic watford fans that we have grown to detest at the Vic. Our home form has been ropey due to the fact that teams come and sit back. The pitch is fantastic, the team is fantastic, and the weather conditions have done us no favour but the club is doing all it can to get the game on. So why don't you sit back, take a look at both your statements and your mentality, and stop posting such unthoughtful, meaningless posts on this website.”

I think the pitch would be playable with help from the ground staff.

Unfortunately as others have stated it has become a health and safety issue whereby no one can take a risk and walk to a football match in the snow.

I'm sure all at WFC would rather the match be played and hopefuly get another 3 points, but I think it will become a council/police decision.

Are you for real? That report is almost 2 years old! We have had a new pitch laid... Have you been to the Vic this season!?
Yes the report is 2 years old, I never said it was published yesterday. What you are forgetting is that yes, the pitch may have been relaid, but the grounds staff have remained the same. Whilst an old pitch was part of the problem, a large part of the blame has to lie with its day-to-day maintenance. Until their is a complete overhaul of the grounds staff, a consistently smooth pitch is unfathomable in the winter period

God are you really the Mong your post suggests? First of all the pitch has undersoil heating, and the game will be called off if the authority's deem the areas to the ground are unsafe. As for the Pozzos, they have delivered everything they promised. I'll answer my first question to you. Yes you are a Mong.

Until their is a complete overhaul of the grounds staff, a consistently smooth pitch is unfathomable in the winter period
put the skol back in the fridge and goto bed.have a rethink and realise what a complete fool you really are.you have not been to a game this season because you dont know what you are talking about.have you not seen the sprinklers in the pitch?.did you not realise we have a decent maintenance team now looking after the pitch?.PLEASE stop embarressing yourself and log off!!!!

Oh please, save the sarcasm, you can't dismiss my point. If your ok with overpaid footballers getting days off because of a bit of ice and snow whilst working men such as ourselves have to get into work despite thebdangerous slippy roads then fine. But somehow I doubt our fellow interlocutors will share your view.

This health and safety **** is beyond a joke. Eg, I live in Vicarage Road half way between the Vic and Watford High St. Game postponed because of "hazardous surrounding areas" yet the shops remain open. If the pitch is ok and the ground is safe, then play it and tough tittie if fans cant make it. I'm willing to risk it from Devon so why should some jobsworth from H&S ruin my day out?

To be honest I hope the game isn't on. Quite clearly Zola needs to have a rethink of his home tactics. 3-5-2 just isn't working and we are struggling to break anyone down. Eustace needs to play, everything goes with him and arguable he's been my player of the season. Chalobah could do with being dropped, getting a bit big for his boots. Along with that I personally believe the hype for Vydra is unprecedented. He's not tenacious enough for the english game and his build up play is atrocious. All in all a break tomorrow could be exactly what we need to gather our thoughts and change a few things.

Lewisthegloryhorn, I agree with you when you say our 3-5-2 doesnt work at home. I disagree about Vydra though and I would say that perhaps the rotation policy might also be to blame.

BTW It was 45c here yesterday, hard to imagine all the snow around the Vic.

Have fun.

Chaebolah is confident not arrogant. In a team full of players more suited to the Italian man marking system, he has been a bedrock with his ability to zonal mark which is vital due to the pace of the English game. Whilst Eustace cannot merit player of the season his inclusion it has to be said is justified. This is predominantly due to his mental attributes which are excellent. Did Chelsea beat Barcelona and Bayern due to their Italian flair? NO! They won because of the grit and determination of their 'old guard'. Something Eustace provides in abundance. However, whilst Eustace provides an excellent leader for motivation, we definitely need someone on the pitch with a tad more tactical nous as I have heard his inability to organise our defence at corners and free kicks is one of his greatest downfalls as a leader and in my opinion, it is this lack of defensive organisation that prevents him from being a viable option at centre back.

Health and safety regulations are not the problem, that is for your health and safety. The problem with the regulations is the application by people who do not understand them, and who are so scared of their own shadows that they will not risk the general public being allowed to think for themselves for one second.

Scandinavia and alpine Europe do not have these problems dealing with snow, and we have it lots worse than England.

The problem with the regulations is the application by people who do not understand them, and who are so scared of their own shadows that they will not risk the general public being allowed to think for themselves for one second.

Will they let the game go ahead if we all agree to sledge there?

I hate snow as well. Yet, I remember going all the way to Huddersfield and when we got to the station the 'old bill' said the game was off. Let's just hope the game goes ahead but it will probably be down to the council as to the state of access. Remember you old guys when we were on the Mtach of the Day when all the fans turned up to clear the pitch of snow? We won 5-1 I think but now it is not down to the state of the ground but what happens outside and if Huddersfield get there on time.
People can'tbe bothered to sweep the pavement in front of their houses nowadays.

Sounds like we've done our bit to get the game on with clearing access routes and turning the undersoil heating on.

The bit that worries me is "The club will be liaising closely with local authorities responsible for the care of areas which fall outside of the club's control." The local authorities are fully signed up members of the nanny state, and will have less, if any motivation to clear public walkways to get the game on!

Hope I'm proved wrong, as I'm massively excited about seeing the game today.

What happens when a game is called off for the playing staff? Do the players report for indoor training or do they laze around losing fitness?

Why don't you slide down the hill you plank. Never thought that I would be relegated to third biggest numpty but rookeryphil and lewisthegloryhorn have taken my crown.
LD I think they need an invite to the Red Lion to discuss their issues.
