Watford do things differently. Appointing Aidy Boothroyd started it. He came untainted with failure and had his own ideas. After instant success and equally instant fall, their faith is undimmed. So is his. “I’m blessed for talent,” he said after victory put them top of the table for a few hours, “blessed now with five strikers.”
On this occasion, facing arguably the most potent forward line in the division, we stared defeat full in the face. Then we kicked it right in the nuts. In other words, we absolutely refused to surrender the points, despite several spells when an Ipswich goal seemed completely inevitable. To quote a cliché, you make your own luck.
