BSAD imageThe sort of game, frankly, that I was dreading in the summer. Leeds weren’t particularly better than us – but they were bigger, stronger and, crucially, one goal up for most of the game.

28th August 2004- Championship, Watford 3 Plymouth Argyle 1

BSAD imageBSAD report: Ninety minutes is a long time, relatively speaking. (Relative to a shorter time, natch.) It’s quite easy to forget sometimes.  I mean, we all know that football matches can drag unspeakably, sloooowwwwiiiiinnnngggg tiiiiiimmmmmmeeeee until it almost seems to stop entirely. Such occasions are usually accompanied by bitter winter cold, a large entry into the “goals against” column, or the words “Carling Cup”. Oh, and at least four minutes of injury time.
