Graham Taylor, the well-known former England boss and BBC Sport pundit, died this morning at the age of 72. Perhaps his greatest managerial exploits came in his first spell at then-Elton John-owned Watford in the late 1970s and early 1980s, where he took the club from the Fourth Division to the old First Division in five years. Upon reaching the top flight, the Vicarage Road outfit finished runners-up to Liverpool (a common occurrence for teams then) in the 1982-1983 campaign, then the following season had their first taste of European football in the UEFA Cup, along with a runner-up finish in the FA Cup.
