The last 2 home games with a important win & rare win under the perrin reign, over Charlton & Barnsley in 1994.

Loads - let's think Cov in 1966 (that was agreat win over high flyers) Carlisle in 69 and Watford Good Friday 70 (I think we were off to Bristol City the next day) Palace, Bradford City and Charlton where Alain Perrin showed as a manager he could attack sending on striker after Charlton equalised and got his reward.

Didn't go to Watford in 07 but how are the mighty fallen? Beat Manyoo on Saturday and lose at bottom placed Hornets on the Monday - such a woeful performance I remember the pub emptying at half time!
