BSAD imageBSAD report: Last night Watford used their “Get out of jail free” card, stealing a win in an entirely bewildering game of football. I’m as unsure about how we failed to put the game beyond Oldham’s reach in the first half as I am about how the hell we avoided defeat in the second. This was both a game that we should’ve won by miles and a game that we should’ve lost humiliatingly. If that makes any sense at all.

9th March 1996- New Division One, Watford 2 Oldham Athletic 1

Approaching this match, I think most Hornets felt that if we were unable to beat Oldham, there would be little point in playing out the rest of the season. I mean, if you can’t beat Oldham, who can you beat?

Both sides must have seen this game as a vital one – a chance to start turning things around. That was reflected in the match – I think we’re unlikely to see much pretty football between now and the end of the season. Players like Tommy Mooney come into their own at times like these, simply because they never say die, never accept that a cause is lost and that attitude spreads to other players.
