WIFC’s very own Big Chris first appeared at Worldnet 2003 following his appearance at the “Buy Back the Vic” match, where he was unfortunate enough to meet Sterry and Mathers. Chris started out in defence, but has since played up front and central midfield, where he earned a boot in the face, a broken nose and a couple of hours in Rotherham General during the first funbus trip. This sort of bravery also accounts for him leading the WIFC troops to the now legendary Cage nightclub for the first time, during Worldnet 2006. Fiercely committed, Chris has regularly captained the team and was selected to represent England in the IFA Internationale match at Worldnet 2011, getting onto the scoresheet in the process.
Chris’ Q and A
Describe yourself in a sentence
Big shot Hollywood film director and definitely NOT a centre half with that goal scoring record.
What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?
I was a fairly late starter at WFC games – I think it was Watford 5 Charlton 2 – can’t remember the year but pretty sure it was a Ramage masterclass.
Finest ever WFC memory
Luton 0 Watford 4 – that one I do remember – 97
Worst away trip and why
Fulham 5 Watford 0 – utterly bobbins.
WIFC playing highlight
Captaining the team in the IFA London Cup and Worldnet.
Favourite WIFC moment
Simon Devon v Daz Sear – 400m flat race on the athletic track in Stockholm. A truly epic race with drama right to the line – can’t even remember who won I laughed so much. All this off the back of Wenham’s 500th (or was it 5000th) career goal as well.
All-time favourite Watford player
All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)
(4-2-4) Miller, Doyley, Galli, Foster, Kennedy; Ramage, Mahon; Helguson, Mooney, Forestieri, Wilkinson.
Red shorts or black?
Which actor would play you in ‘WIFC – The Movie’
Russel Crowe – intelligent and handsome gentle giant – prone to the occasional decent of red mist when rubbed up the wrong way.
