BSAD imageBSAD report: Blindly indulged every superstition available. Lucky shave, lucky boxer shorts, lucky shirt (unwashed during April and May – one man’s disgusting laziness is another’s inspirational magic), lucky view over Watford on the train, lucky programme seller. Qualified virtually every sentence with the phrase “If we make the playoffs…”, for fear of tempting fate. Some of these things are clearly stupid, but this was not the time for taking chances. Everyone was in superstition overdrive, Watford had its fingers crossed.

23rd April 1996- New Division One, Watford 6 Grimsby Town 3

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.80: With one foot already stuck in the relegation trapdoor, Watford were still kicking, but only just.

BSAD imageIt says a lot about a performance when you come away from a game in which you’ve scored six goals feeling a bit disappointed. Grimsby were there for the taking and we could have made it towards double figures with a bit more luck and confidence.
