27th October 2020- Championship, Wycombe Wanderers 1 Watford 1

1-0

Ismaīla Sarr can, it seems, do it in front of a packed house against the champions as well as an empty one in the Championship.

Ben Foster claims Watford have been average this season

Wycombe secured their first Sky Bet Championship point of the season with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford, but Gareth Ainsworth’s side could easily have claimed all three.

Ismaila Sarr headed home Kiko Femenia’s inch-perfect cross to open the scoring for the visitors against the run of play in the 52nd minute. But Wycombe, who lost their opening seven league matches coming into this fixture, were soon level as defender Anthony Stewart nodded in Joe Jacobson’s corner midway through the second half.

We can’t complain with a point, and no away point is a bad point.  An away point at Wycombe might look a lot better in a month or two’s time than it does now.  But we need to be able to score imperfect, scruffy goals if we’re going to be the cruelly effective side that we ought to be.  We need a striker fit.

It was a tough night in Buckinghamshire for Watford who laboured to a draw against previously pointless Wycombe Wanderers, leaving supporters and Head Coach Vladimir Ivić pretty unimpressed.

BHappy imageBHappy report: Well that was more eventful than expected.  The summer I mean… not the game, obviously, we’ll get to that.  But doesn’t that Middlesbrough win seem an awfully long time ago.  Little suggestion then of the upheaval that was to follow (and  which still continues, I don’t think we’ve anything like finished yet…); if the long-term ownership of the club was in question there was certainly no indication that August would see us under a new manager (why would we?) or with a whole shedload of new players (how could we?).  Turbulent, unnerving and also (and let’s be absolutely clear about this) to the unquestionable benefit, ultimately, of the football club.  But quite possibly leaving a few disassociated, with nothing familiar to hold on to.  So thank heaven and earth for the First Round of the League Cup (sponsored by whoever).  Even today, a balmy Saturday afternoon instead of a cool Tuesday night.  It never disappoints, never fails to sap the start of season excitement from the marrow, grounds us, reminds us what it’s all about.

26th December 1997- New Division Two, Wycombe Wanderers 0 Watford 0

Strange business, this top of the table lark. Despite being so far away from Oldham in third place that they’re unlikely to catch us up with the aid of rocket-powered, erm, rockets, Watford fans appear to be on a mission to find something to have a bloody good moan about.

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

The game was played 24 hours after the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales where Elton John had performed a reworked version of ‘Candle in the Wind’. He came to the game and was given a standing ovation before kick-off.

BSAD 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.
