BSAD imageBSAD report: This time last year, we were also drawing 1-1. At home to York City. So, no reason for frowning faces, no reason to dwell for too long on why Sheffield United didn’t become our seventh victims of the season. What we’ve achieved so far isn’t going to be undone by one hideous miss and two dropped points.

26th September 1998- New Division One, Watford 1 Ipswich Town 0

BSAD imageOn this occasion, facing arguably the most potent forward line in the division, we stared defeat full in the face. Then we kicked it right in the nuts. In other words, we absolutely refused to surrender the points, despite several spells when an Ipswich goal seemed completely inevitable. To quote a cliché, you make your own luck.

19th September 1998- New Division One, Swindon Town 1 Watford 4

Wins like Saturday’s should be enjoyed for what they are, not what they might lead to. That the three points takes us up to fifth place really doesn’t matter to me; that they were gained by having so much hilarious, brilliant fun means everything. This was an absolute blast.
