Last season, Chelsea travelled to Watford for a pivotal fifth-round FA Cup tie. With no permanent manager. And no real momentum.
But, under interim man Ray Wilkins, the Blues rallied from a goal behind to win 3-1 -- a hat trick from Nicolas Anelka highlighted a wonderful evening. It was in fact an evening that served as a massive turning point in our season, one that led us to the brink of a Champions League final. Can our opening match of the new decade -- an FA Cup third-round FA tie at Stamford Bridge with the Hornets -- provide the same kind of spark? Stay tuned.
This man is fit, and ready for another heydey at Watford's expense.
