Martin Owen

Position – Centre Midfield
DOB – 21/8/1969
Debut v QPR – May 1997
Nicknames – Mowen, Eunuch, Part-timer who thinks he’s God

Another of the stalwarts, Mowen has been around since time began, but looks no older than the day he joined as his baby faced looks nicely wallpaper over the cracks of his advancing years. Blessed with a knack of looking retarded in every picture (see above and below..) old-timer Mowen was inducted to the WIFC Hall of fame in 2004, and had the honour of scoring WIFC’s only goal in the Gibbsy Testimonial match at the Vic in 2002, a free-kick blasted past Steve Sherwood. Time waits for no man, even Mowen, and he underwent surgery on a long-term achilles injury in 2011. Unfortunately, it was a success and Mowen made a comeback during 2012/13 at Chorley. He got buckled after 15 minutes..

Mowen’s Q and A

Describe yourself in a sentence:

A god amongst men

What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?

Fincham answers these kind of shit questions, I’ll pass.

Finest ever WFC memory

Alan Smart’s winner in the play off final

Worst away trip and why

Liverpool 1987, lost 4-0, car broke down and got back at some ridiculous time in the morning

WIFC playing highlight

Probably don’t need to answer that

Favourite WIFC moment


All-time favourite Watford player

Ricky Holden

All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)

Again another dull question I’ll leave for Fincham. Just to add though shovel shoes wouldn’t make it.

Red shorts or black?


Which actor would play you in ‘WIFC – The Movie’

Brad Pitt obviously. another god
