I also generally join the Live Forum, which I may hasten to add is not for the squeamish, and can get heated at times, there are some personal ongoing mud-slings, which I regard more as a source of humour although some find it offensive.
However the majority are 'watching it live' so it can be a spoiler when they post that either we, or they have scored two minutes before it has happened on my feed. That can be annoying, especially if we don't respond with goals of our own.
I must admit that again for the possession we enjoyed in the first half, our lack of resistance which led to two well-taken goals by Watford, exposed the frailties we have both in midfield and defence.
However all was redeemed in an extended extra time period, the first of Mina's goals, the scramble in their box, I was convinced would be over-ruled by VAR, especially with Jon Moss as the head invigilator.
To my surprise, and I would imagine all other Blues, the goal stood, and before we could digest that, a well taken corner resulted in Mina making up for prior misses this season, by scoring another on the stroke of half time.
It was like the Newcastle game in reverse, but at least we had the added bonus that we still had another 45 minutes plus, to ensure all three points, which at that point I still believed we could achieve.
I think the double whammy at the end of the first half more or less demoralised Watford, but again the Yellow/Red Card incident with Delph, which I don't think was deserved, almost dented any hopes of a watching Evertonian, that a win was doomed again.
Maybe things are certainly looking up, and Carlo has instilled that 'never say die attitude' and instead of the fact we were down to ten men, galvanised us as opposed to weakening us.
Another week to recover and hopefully come back stronger at home against Crystal Palace, another win and three points, will have us in the right place in the Table to kick on and maybe a Europa League spot IS possible!

Does Vicarage Road still have a stand which doesnt extend to the length of the pitch?

I suppose if you score two goals you have to be in with a shout for man of the match.
