26th October 2002- New Division One, Watford 1 Sheffield Wednesday 0

 

BBC SportHeidar Helguson’s fourth goal of the season put the pressure back on Sheffield Wednesday’s under-fire boss Terry Yorath as they slumped to a fifth away defeat of the season.

BSAD imageAt some point during the second half, a familiar (but nameless, here at least) face and occasional BSaD contributor returned to his seat in the Rookery and proudly announced that he’d just been Harry Hornet for the afternoon. Which explains why Harry was looking distinctly trim and athletic as he ambled around the touchline, and why said familiar face had suddenly disappeared earlier on. “I had to do it just once,” he said, and you could see the logic in that.

13th October 2001- New Division One, Watford 3 Sheffield Wednesday 1

BBC SportWatford picked up their first win in five league matches at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday at Vicarage Road.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Perhaps it’s a little premature, but there’s a sense that this is the start of something…and it doesn’t necessarily matter if it’s not the start of a period of dazzling success. There are more fundamental things, really. Many have felt isolated and alienated as the new era has jolted into motion, failing to identify with an unfamiliar, anonymous team. As a fan, there’s been little to hold onto. Now, with Gifton Noel-Williams and Tommy Smith returning to stunning form, Micah Hyde running the midfield, Neil Cox back in favour, and the emergence of distinctive, committed figures among the new signings (David Noble, Stephen Glass, and Filippo Galli), it feels a whole lot less like watching a daytime soap opera.

18th March 2000- Premier League, Watford 1 Sheffield Wednesday 0

A late goal from Allan Smart gave Watford the points in this battle between the Premiership’s worst two sides. 

It only takes a second to score a goal. It only takes a goal to win a game. It only takes a win to make my day….And it would only have taken a few more days like this to make a season.

It’s tempting to write only about the last ninety seconds of this game. Watford played beautifully, Smart scored early thanks to a splendid assist from star forward Tommy Smith, then we defended stoutly and resolutely for the arduous and seemingly endless remainder of the game, displaying the excellent teamwork that has often been lacking, etc., etc.
