BSAD imageBSAD report: Really, the most enjoyable aspect of yesterday’s victory was that it summarised our successes so well. For the final action of 2003/03 had much in common with its best action, albeit that several of the personnel were less familiar. Some of it was ragged, some of it was a real struggle, much of it wasn’t especially pretty. But the attitude – determined, focused, assertive – overcame all of that in the end, enabling the team to build foundations for a deserved victory. Although we can play better, and we have played better, much of this term’s progress has been based upon performances like this.

4th May 1991- Division Two, Oxford United 0 Watford 1

BSAD imageSo onto Oxford and three thousand five hundred fans piled down the M40 for a date with destiny.

Wearing the white away shirts, the Horns scrapped for everything and, with James in goal, one always felt we had a reasonable chance if he didn’t drop a clanger. I remember little of the game until about the sixtieth minute. The Horns won a corner, the cross came in and Paul Wilkinson (surely one of the better strikers to play for the Horns, even if he didn’t know the offside rule) smashed the ball home.
