BSAD imageBSAD report:In a parallel universe, things are very different. Graham Taylor’s reign at Wolves continues, the Molineux fans having kept patience with their manager for long enough to allow him to end their quest for Premiership status. As his side challenges for a UEFA cup spot, rumours of promotion for Taylor to a job at a bigger club surface with each new vacancy…but no-one is loopy enough to mention a return to Watford.

7th November 1998- New Division One, Watford 2 Oxford United 0

BSAD imageBSAD report: After umpteen years of spectating in the Vic Road end, a brief holiday in the Main Stand, courtesy of a loaned season ticket. For a start, rather like watching your favourite film in widescreen, it comes as something of a disorientating shock to be seeing a home game from the side. Hearing the fans roar in anticipation as a pass rolls harmlessly ten yards in front of Gifton Noel-Williams at the Rookery end is just one reminder of how perspective distorts a football match.

In When Saturday Comes Oxford United fan Martin Brodetsky described this game as his worst moment supporting The U’s.
