Watford's reserve side thumped their Ipswich Town counterparts 4-0 at Vicarage Road.

Remarkable amongst the goals was a 25-yard strike by reserve-team skipper Luther Blissett, which won the club's Goal of the Season award.

Blissett had not featured in the first team during what was his final season on the playing staff at Vicarage Road.

The legend always scored spectacular goals.

What made him so good? As he was on the fringe of the first team he scored a brace against Newcastle in the League Cup as a sub. GT implied he was not ready for the first team as he does not always perform.

Luther's response - - then I have to try harder.

Sir Luther.
