From the Boardroom - David Gold

Joint-Chairman David Gold looks back at an impressive win over Watford and says the European dream is still alive

I was thrilled with the victory against Watford on Wednesday night. We knew they would be focusing on the FA Cup semi-final this weekend, but we still had to beat them and it was an impressive all-round performance.

It was great to see Diafra Sakho back in the team and Andy Carroll back to his best. Adrian made a penalty save and we came out 3-1 winners.

Andy made it six goals in six games and that is what we want to see from him. He can make a big difference to our team.

There are not many centre forwards around like him and he showed his quality once again. He is a very good footballer and that was very evident against Watford.

Mark Noble scored two more penalties and it is a remarkable record that he has now scored 26 from 29 attempts.

You feel comfortable when you see him step up and you cannot get any better stats than what he is showing from the penalty spot.

It is incredible that he doesn't practice them in training, but he has a mental toughness and knows exactly what he is going to do.

The victory over Watford also saw the Club set a new top flight record of going 15 games unbeaten at the Boleyn Ground this season which is an amazing achievement.

We have broken a number of records this year with our first double over Liverpool for over fifty years and no team in the Premier League being able to do the double over us this season.

It shows how far we have come and we are a serious contender now. It is great to see us challenging in the top half of the table and I hope that will continue when we move into the new Stadium.

It is not impossible for the Club to win the remaining four matches of the season and I know that Slaven and the players will be doing everything they can to get maximum points from those games.

The European dream is still alive.
