BSAD imageBSAD report: There’s a certain irony here.When we blew the top half of the First Division apart back in ’99, there were a few noses put out of joint. Thinking back, there are memories of familiar criticisms levelled at Graham Taylor’s style of play, its alleged reliance on big strikers and set pieces. Not just Trevor Francis either.

BBC SportWatford had a slice of good fortune in their victory over Rotherham to give Gianluca Vialli his first league win since he took charge.

BSAD imageBSAD report: It began with operatic bellowing from a Pavarotti impersonator, as well as dancing girls and a new, apparently divorced Harry Hornet.

Kevin Keegan’s Manchester City career got off to the perfect start as he saw his side crush Watford at Maine Road

BSAD imageIf you accept that the armchair viewer is now all-powerful – and why else would this game have kicked off at a time that satisfies neither tradition nor convenience for attending supporters – then you naturally start to ponder where it might all end. Because there’s only one thing that the TV companies don’t yet control, which is the level of entertainment on offer.
