Since then, Alex finally joined the full squad for the start of the 2011/12 season and soon broke a club record by scoring in 6 consecutive games.

Alex’s Q and A

Describe yourself in a sentence
Tall, weigh about 4 stone wet through and have the physical presence of a peanut, but I do enjoy playing football…

What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?
Nov 7th 1998, we played Oxford at home and they forgot their kit so had to wear our away one, that’s all I really remember about the game but a quick research shows we apparently won 2-0.

Finest ever WFC memory
I don’t remember an awful lot about the 99 playoff final, and the 06 final was great but the best moment probably has to be Leicester at home in the playoffs this season just gone, at the time it was the best feeling ever in those well documented 20 seconds.

Worst away trip and why
Hull away in the playoffs, spent ages cramped in a mates car for us to just fall apart, and then the horrendous journey home, definitely one to forget.

WIFC playing highlight
When we played Oxford at the met a couple of seasons ago in one of my first ever games, I played upfront with Jimmy and scored a couple of decent goals and just generally had a lot of fun playing that match.

Favourite WIFC moment
Getting Brad absolutely slaughtered at Barnsley away and him blubbering outside the turnstiles profusely apologising for being a drunken mess. Then him being hungover on the way home and bouncing his head off the top of a seat.

All-time favourite Watford player
Allan Nielsen

All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)
Chamberlain; Doyley, DeMerit, Mariappa, Robinson; Abdi, Nielsen, Hyde; Young, Graham, Vydra (4-3-3)

Red shorts or black?
