19th April 2014- Championship, Watford 3 Ipswich Town 1

Watford kept alive their hopes of reaching the Championship play-offs and dented Ipswich’s with victory at Vicarage Road.

Beppe Sannino said: “Tozser’s the only player I can’t change in this team because I don’t have any other players with his characteristics. He gave us the right balance. He’s the only player that knows he’s going to play in advance.”

This was a game from a parallel universe.  A parallel universe in which this season panned out as we thought it might, in which we really did rip the division up, too good for whatever the Championship could throw at us.  In which a team turning up and haring after us, closing us down up the pitch and denying us space and waiting for us to make a mistake wasn’t anything like enough.  A parallel universe in which, perversely, Beppe Sannino had replaced Gianfranco anyway.  Go figure.  I never claimed to be an expert in this stuff.
