Month: November 1996

30th November 1996- New Division Two, Watford 2 Blackpool 2

I’ll admit, I really enjoyed the game. We should have won. We would have won if Page had been in the defence, and Palmer was allowed to play his normal role in the midfield instead of the inept Johnson. We started lively, passed the ball about well. Stuart Slater, making his debut, particularly impressed early on. He faded a little bit in the second half, but that is to be expected as he’s not match fit yet.

BSAD imageBSAD report: All in all, Saturday went well. The day started badly – I missed my bus to Watford, and so the first ten minutes of the match – but after that things looked up. A lot. By the time I arrived, as I say, things were already underway, and this meant that I didnšt know who was actually playing; this proved rather amusing when I praised a Devon White layoff aloud only to be told by the person next to me that it was actually a Gifton Noel-Williams layoff. He was very nice about it.
