The game that started the run in to the playoffs. Just look how far behind Wolves we were in the table even after this game.

BSAD report: Renowned literary academic AC Bradley once wrote of Shakespeare’s “King Lear” that it is “too huge for the stage”. In other words, attempting to squeeze such an absolutely immense, overwhelming spectacle – storms, insanity, rage, evil, revenge, forgiveness, redemption – into a theatre is like trying to trap a hurricane in a matchbox.
You could say much the same of the concluding twenty minutes of Watford versus Tranmere. “Too huge for a football pitch” – lawless carnage that refused to recognise the touchline as any kind of barrier, spilling over into the dugouts, the dressing rooms, and the stands.
