BSAD: We scavenged for something approaching food to keep our fuel levels up. A futile exercise in the vicinity of Oakwell, as any previous visitor can testify. In the ground, they were selling something edible, allegedly…in such crisis conditions, you make do with whatever. We huddled together for warmth, discussing the conditions grimly and trying not to think too hard about television sets and cans of lager. Thankfully, a football match started, which was at least a distraction.
BSAD: This morning I turned on the radio again, just to confirm the score you understand, and the headline news was about the New Years Honours list. Now if I may I would like to propose some far more deserving candidates. They are the Watford supporters who journeyed to Oakwell. “The Watford contingent is so small you can count them,” said the man on the radio, but sadly he refrained from doing so. So how about giving those fans O.B.E.s – Our Bloody ‘Eroes. Well, it’s Christmas and it’s the best I can do.
