BBC SportRelegation-threatened Sheffield United were reduced to nine men inside 34 minutes as they were beaten at Watford.

BHappy imageInterpretation of the result will be distorted by the perspective introduced by two red cards in the first half (see below), but it shouldn’t be. It’s perfectly possible to make heavy weather of a numerical advantage, and on this occasion we did anything but, belying the number of kids on show (which was considerable, even if this was as experienced a line-up as we’ve been able to field of late).

12th March 2005- Championship, Queens Park Rangers 3 Watford 1

Watford slumped to a third successive Championship defeat going down at Queen’s Park Rangers and had to play for nearly 70 minutes with ten men, after Brynjar Gunnarsson was sent off for deliberate handball.

Despite a certain amount of empty bluster directed towards Lee Cook and then Graham Poll, this was about feeble surrender, about shutting out the world. A performance that was utterly devoid of substance, and just about got what it deserved…and we’re simply not in a position where we can afford to abdicate responsibility for our fate, not yet. We have to intervene.
