Month: January 1997

21st January 1997- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 2 Oxford United 0

The weather caused lots of postponements at the beginning of the year. This game was originally scheduled for 4th January, then the 14th and eventually played a week later. Even then it didn’t kick off until 8.30pm due to a floodlight failure.

Performance of the season. By a bloody mile. The quality of the opposition, more than an entire league above us, doesn’t matter – this was the best we’ve played against anyone in this campaign. Oxford were rubbish, of course, but the point is that we made them look rubbish.
