17th November 2002- New Division One, Watford 0 Ipswich Town 2

Goals from Alun Armstrong and Jamie Clapham within 12 minutes of the restart gave Ipswich a well-earned victory over play-off chasing Watford.

Rituals are very important to the superstitious football fan, a cornerstone of the build-up to any game. Having a match put back to a Sunday to accommodate your opponents’ holiday plans may threaten to scupper these routines, but they’re still pursued if more by dint of habit than in honest belief that they will influence a game’s outcome.

17th October 2000- New Division One, Watford 0 Gillingham 0

BSAD imageI hate Gillingham. In an admiring sort of way.  They’re a pain in the arse, obviously. We haven’t beaten them since the invention of the combustion engine and, on last night’s evidence, we’ll have seen a few more inventions come and go before we beat them again. They know how to make themselves unpopular, that’s for sure.  Perhaps they’ve burst our bubble at an appropriate moment, though.

BSAD imageOn the subject of our forwards, Gifton on an off-night plays depressingly more like a Harlem Globetrotter than Michael Jordan; and with a wall of blue meanies facing them, even Tommy Smith back in a central role couldn’t jinx a way through.
