BSAD imageBSAD report:To add to the disconcerting familiarity of it all, we get the dubious honour of opening the campaign against Sheffield United again. Another opportunity to put one over on Dave Bassett, former Watford boss, whose idea of what constitutes entertaining football is not the same as mine (he said tactfully).

21st September 1994- League Cup Second Round First Leg, Watford 3 Tottenham Hotspur 6

BSAD imageTo set the scene : we’d made an unspectacular start to the season, and had just got beaten 4-2 at home by the old enemy, largely due to the absence of Foster, who was then vital to our defence, and Miller. These two players both missed the first leg. Tottenham, under Ossie Ardiles and Steve Perryman were the then media darlings (Chelsea, beware!) largely due to Klinsmann.
