BSAD report:¬†The debutant’s two goals will grab the headlines, and rightly so. But, in truth, he had a curious match. Ironically, his strength also proved to be his weakness. Like Nick Wright, he appears to have a knack of appearing in the penalty area unnoticed at the right moment, something that will certainly guarantee him goals. Unlike Wright, he also appears to be well versed in the art of finishing such opportunities. The problem, therefore, was not in his performance but in his position – as a right winger, he wasn’t available enough in our approach play. That was frustrating, particularly when his moments on the ball were artful and aggressive. Our attacks leaned heavily to the left as a consequence.

BSAD imageBSAD report:¬†Strange times in Hertfordshire. The local paper blares bizarre headlines concerning mutilated sheep carcasses from satanic rituals on Chipperfield Common. The scoreboard at Vicarage Road proudly displays advertising for “Dianetics” by L. Ron Hubbard. The programme promises that future pre-match entertainment will include exploding water buffalo. Only one of the above is a lie.
