Boothroyd speaks volumes for English talent - Simon Burnton

Copy from Football Unlimited of 03/10/2005.

This match represented a watershed in the relationship between the Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell and his Watford counterpart Adie Boothroyd. Last season Blackwell was Boothroyd's boss; now he can no longer consider himself superior.

A little over eight months as first-team coach at Leeds was enough for Boothroyd to attract Watford's attention. A controversial, unknown replacement for the popular Ray Lewington in March, he guided the Hertfordshire side out of the jaws of relegation last season and over a quarter of the way through this one they sit one place above his former employers in fifth. Meanwhile his impact is still being felt in Yorkshire.

The Leeds centre-back Matthew Kilgallon, who admitted that he was "minging" as a makeshift left-back on Saturday, described Boothroyd as "one of the best coaches I've ever worked with". "He put a lot of confidence into me and a lot of the lads," Kilgallon said. "On the training side he was brilliant and off the pitch with the banter he was great as well. He can be serious when he wants to but his sessions were excellent and very enjoyable. He made you want to go in on a Monday. Apart from being a great coach he is also a great character. I was sad to see him go."

Stalemate leaves the senses dulled - Gerry Cox

Copy from Football Unlimited of 02/10/2005.

If the Premiership is considered boring and lacking in quality these days, God forbid either of these sides should rise from the Championship to join it.

Watford and Leeds, who have both enjoyed far greater fortunes in the top flight in times past, are fifth and sixth respectively, which is no great testament to the quality of football in the division.

Not only was it goalless here, but there were precious few chances or moments of skill to cheer a decent-sized crowd expecting at least one goal, given this fixture had never ended goalless before.
