 BSAD report:The word “ravishing” was suggested to describe our fourth goal, and that’ll do nicely.

The 100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.85: It was the glimmers of hope like this that made Gianluca Vialli’s ill-fated season as Watford manager so much harder to take. From the start, the Italian looked poorly suited to the rough and tumble of the second tier. The cashmere sweater and fat tie knot looked out of place in a division that’s always been more suited to hob-nail boots and workman’s overalls.
