29th October 2005- Championship, Watford 3 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

Ashley Young inspired Watford to victory at Vicarage Road.

A simply gorgeous moment in the eighty-seventh minute. A Wolves corner in front of the Vic Road end, where the speckled colours of clothes and faces have increasingly given way to solid blocks of empty red seats. The ball swings into the six yard box, where substitute Olonfinjana has been left in enough space to start his own vineyard and given enough time to grow it from seed. He must score. Inevitably, he doesn’t score. With wonderfully misguided conviction, he turns and smacks a forceful header five yards wide of the target, and another cluster of Wolves fans is shaken loose like autumn leaves in a stiff breeze.

Three fit centre backs and all was set fair to meet the boys from the Black Country. My lucky yellow jacket, sported proudly on these occasions, also saw to the Wolves line up missing strikers Carl Cort and George Ndah in addition to the long term injury victim, Paul Ince. Also absent was the suspended Vio Ganea.

15th October 2005- Championship, Watford 1 Leicester City 2

Leicester claimed their first away victory of the season at Watford.

Don’t let me paint this as a crisis. It isn’t, and it doesn’t need to be. But it shouldn’t be taken lightly either, just because the start to the campaign was so exuberant and so refreshing. For the second time, we dropped points at home in a tight game, leaving a striker on the bench with a substitution to spare.

guardianIf the Premiership is considered boring and lacking in quality these days, God forbid either of these sides should rise from the Championship to join it.

BSAD image“If you like dubstep but didn’t reach DMZ’s fourth incredible Brixton bash, where were ya?” asks Martin Clark, by way of introduction to his vital monthly round-up of London’s grime and dubstep scenes for the excellent Pitchfork site. And I don’t have an answer to that, frankly.
