BSAD report:Surely one of the most famous results in the club’s history, staggering even by Graham Taylor’s standards.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.35: The Premiership and its hype and self-importance could be irritating at times but this was one of those rare days when all the pundits had to sit in their armchairs and accept that sometimes might doesn’t mean right.

21st November 1998-New Division One, Watford 4 Crewe Alexandra 2

BSAD imageBSAD report:In a parallel universe, things are very different. Graham Taylor’s reign at Wolves continues, the Molineux fans having kept patience with their manager for long enough to allow him to end their quest for Premiership status. As his side challenges for a UEFA cup spot, rumours of promotion for Taylor to a job at a bigger club surface with each new vacancy…but no-one is loopy enough to mention a return to Watford.

15th August 1998- New Division One, Watford 1 Bradford City 0

The mind boggles at what Watford can achieve this season if they can win games like this. Not so much under the cosh as buried deep beneath it for large periods of the match, the Hornets still managed to eke out a one-nil victory that puts them joint top of the first division, albeit at a stage too early to judge what their eventual league fate will be.

1st November 1997-New Division Two, Watford 4 Blackpool 1

BSAD imageBSAD report: Micah Hyde and Richard Johnson ran this game. When that’s allowed to happen, the Hornets become an altogether more effective outfit – the difference is in the quantity of supply to the flanks and the quality of supply to the forwards. It’s obvious that Ronny Rosenthal and Gifton Noel-Williams ought to profit from such circumstances but, perhaps more than anyone, it also brings the best out of Jason Lee.

BSAD imageBSAD report:This was a match of many good (and a few excellent) individual performances, not a game that offered vital insights into our future – chaotic but fun, essentially. If we play like that all season, most of our fans will have been reduced to dribbling lunatics by May – but, with so many new players and a ‘new’ manager, it’s only to be expected that we’ll take some time bringing everything together into a cohesive whole.
