After Roy Hodgson masterminded his Cottagers to an awesome 2nd leg comeback to beat the mighty Juventus in the Europa League, it got Dr Watford fondly thinking back to the Hornets own amazing comeback in THAT 1983 UEFA Cup campaign.
Ahhhhh, the spirit of `83 when unfancied Watford overcame a 1st Round 3-1 first leg defeat in Kaiserslauten only to win 3-0 against the German giants in deep, dark Hertfordshire.
And on Thursday, those [G]olden days came flooding back to us at VitalWatford Towers when, Fuham, just like our vintage Hornets, did the unthinkable to shock the footballing world!
2nd LEG HIGHLIGHTS
> For Dickson Etuhu`s goal in Turin - think THAT Gilligan away goal in Kaiserslauten that gave the faintest sniff of hope...
> For that expected Dempsey tie winning moment - think an unknown youth team striker called 'Richardson`
> For the bewildered faces of Tresequet and Cannevaro - think world class West German internationals with their heads in their hands.
> For a bouncing Craven Cottage - think a bumper 22,000 crowd at Vicarage Road with mass hysteria under the scoreboard in the Vic End.
> For Hodgson`s "on top the world" post match comments - think Sir Graham Taylor`s "best moment in my time as Watford manager" notes
> For Fulham`s well documented injury list - think the absence of Blissett, Rice, Taylor, Lohman, Patching, Jenkins, Armstrong, Sinnot or Simms
So, thank you Fulham for giving us reason to harbour back to that happy night on the 28th September 1983...
Sherwood, Palmer, Rostrom, Jobson, Terry, Barnes, Bolton, Jackett, Callaghan, Richardson, Gilligan - we salute you one and all.
