BSAD imageBSAD report: Interestingly, there’s something of a difference of opinion at Vicarage Road right now. Roles reversed, unusually. Here, the expectations of the management team appear to be rather higher than those of many in the stands…which means me, although I know that I’m not alone in thinking that the lack of depth within the squad will cause us to struggle over the course of a nine month campaign. Judging by the reaction to this defeat, however, there’s a different agenda in the dressing room…which is very welcome indeed, particularly for those who hate to hear excuses about under-performance. I might think that this is all about survival, but that’s not a word that’s passed Ray Lewington’s lips much in recent interviews.

2nd November 2002- New Division One, Watford 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

Wolves salvaged a point with an injury-time goal by Kevin Cooper after Neil Cox had given Watford the lead.

Bad luck tends to follow swiftly on the heels of manager-of-the-month awards. For Ray Lewington, a home draw against the might of an ever-improving Wolves side may have felt like a defeat but third place in the First Division should be sufficient consolation.

Here, everything that we’ve achieved so far was to be tested. For the first time since our unbeaten start to the 2000/01 season, we were defending a place in the top six against one of the First Division heavyweights, in form and ready to take us down a peg or three. This was something different, a new challenge.
