25th January 2003- FA Cup Fourth Round, Watford 1 West Bromwich Albion 0

Pennant slotted Heidar Helguson through and the Icelandic striker coolly finished in the 80th minute.

Even allowing for our customary difficulties in turning possession into chances and chances into goals, it would be hard – and unnecessary – to imagine a more exhilarating display. From first to last, we did everything right, and then a little bit more. With the benefit of hindsight, that even includes the penalty miss, since an earlier goal would’ve left us with longer to defend the lead. It was a perfect afternoon, one of those when it all comes together at the same time.
