4th October 2008- Championship, Watford 2 Preston North End 1

Watford came back from a goal down to earn a win over Preston thanks to Tommy Smith’s 50th goal for the club.

A quite ridiculously open game of football that looked like delivering many more goals at each end. Due in no small part to our formation – going 4-4-2 without John Eustace in midfield was always going to be a high risk strategy. We had enough to make it pay off; all six of our “attacking” players had good afternoons.

BSAD report:It’s having to start to write reports like this which make you long for a word which can reproduce the sound which those present in the Oak Road End at Kenilworth Road made on Saturday 4th October 1997 after Peter Kennedy slammed home our fourth goal.

 BSAD report:In a twinkling of an eye, the past ten years was forgotten, consigned to the history books as meaningless statistics on a page. All of a sudden what mattered was Luton on an October afternoon and a mighty Watford team.

4th October 1994- League Cup Second Round Second Leg, Tottenham Hotspur 2 Watford 3 (Tottenham won 8-6 on aggregate)

BSAD imageBSAD report: Watford led another remarkable match three times and were always on the brink of opening up the crucial two-goal lead, at which point it felt like anything could happen. In many ways, that sense of anticipation made a mere 3-2 at White Hart Lane feel like something of an anticlimax. Had Ian Walker been sent off and Gary Porter not missed that first leg penalty, a comeback really would’ve been on the cards.
