7th September 1997- New Division Two, Watford 2 Wycombe Wanderers 1

BSAD imageBSAD report: There’s been a lot of talk about “putting football in perspective” during recent days, most of it well-intentioned but misguided. I doubt if any of us have so many moments of unbridled joy in our lives that we can afford to pick and choose – those occasional flash-gun instants of ecstasy that football can produce amid the monotony are not devalued by context.

BSAD imageBSAD report: The first half was quite monstrously dull, so much so that I was reduced to reading the newspaper confetti underneath my seat. Very very VERY tedious. There was no lack of effort on the part of the players, merely an absence of constructive and incisive passing. In truth, Stockport had rather the better of the play – they never really threatened our goal and Kevin Miller didn’t have a testing save to make but they certainly enjoyed the majority of the possession, particularly at the start of the half.
