28th August 2010- Championship, Watford 0 Leeds United 1

BBC SportLeeds captain Richard Naylor hit the winner in his 450th career appearance to end Watford’s unbeaten start to the season in a poor game at Vicarage Road.

skyLeeds United made it back-to-back Championship victories as captain Richard Naylor struck to end Watford’s unbeaten start to the season.

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.

BBC SportDespite being without two of their most expensive signings and influential players, Watford romped to victory over Sheffield United at Vicarage Road.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Four-one to the Golden Boys. Fond memories of similarly convincing scorelines against Swindon, Crewe and Stockport two years ago, back when life seemed so simple, the sun was always shining and Gifton was fit. Back when it was possible to be relaxed and happy as a game went into injury time, when it was conceivable that we might possess better individuals and score better goals than our opponents. With all due respect to Sheffield United, our first encounter with a recognisably run-of-the-mill First Division side was a singularly nostalgic experience.

Another BSAD report: What an afternoon. The framework of the Wimbledon game having been laid, we put out a team that played as fluently as any for two years. And without Nielsen, or Wooter, or Johnno, or Kennedy. My God, we’re a squad.

BSAD imageBSAD report: The first weeks of the season have offered a microcosm of Division One. The majority, including the sides we’ve already beaten, are charitable enough both in missing and donating chances that we have nothing to fear. Then there are the serious contenders – the teams that punish errors, the teams that have dealt with us comfortably.
