23rd November 2013- Championship, Watford 0 Bolton Wanderers 1

Manuel Almunia’s error gifted Bolton a third straight win as Watford suffered their third consecutive home defeat.

Unusual to be starting with the “big picture” stuff, normally the domain of thunk 5.  Relevant here though., because however dispiriting our recent form has been…  things could be worse.  No, really.  I mean, you know that, right?   You remember Bassini?   Not being able to afford Keith Scott or a Stevenage-era Barry Hayles in Division One?  The financial abyss post-Vialli?  This?  Whatever’s wrong is small potatoes in comparison.  And even if one accepts that there are major problems with the team – we’ll get to that – we have owners with a demonstrably sound plan, and a degree of security.  And some very talented players, albeit we’re not seeing the best of them at the moment.

15th September 2012- Championship, Bolton Wanderers 2 Watford 1

The game where Lloyd Doyley scored his other goal.

Lloyd Doyley’s cross evaded everyone, including goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, to ensure a tense finish but the home side held on for victory.

7th January 2006- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 0 Bolton Wanderers 3

Bolton cruised past Championship side Watford despite the absence of several key players to seal a place in the FA Cup fourth round.

The sides looked miles apart, such was the superiority of Bolton’s intelligence and movement. Watford fought back stirringly early in the second half without looking likely to disturb Bolton’s easy authority.

Bolton were missing most of their first team. Only three of the side which started against Liverpool on Monday were on show, with the increasingly relevant African Nations Cup taking several products of the Bolton youth scheme (sic!) away for a month, while suspensions and apparent injuries forced several other changes. Their substitutes did not have one first team performance between them!

BSAD imageBSAD report: Besides, we’re top of the league. Properly top of the league, not just keeping it warm for Fulham. All the other stuff still matters, of course…but the crap that life throws at you seems to stick less easily when you’ve got a league table to gaze lovingly at.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Today we sing, coz we love our team. They kept out a hard-working bunch of bastards who’d got an inexplicable grudge against us and interrupted our every attempt at complicated passing, which made us look like we either couldn’t get in the game or weren’t trying hard enough to do so.

BSAD imageBSAD report: All teams, including us, will go on a bad run at some stage during the season (as Fulham are demonstrating to a minor extent at the moment). We just have to hope ours won’t last too long, and that it doesn’t happen for a few games yet.
