Dan is probably better known in Watford supporting circles as one half of the duo of brothers who once ran the Watford Legends website, on which a variety of former Hornets heores of differing quality are interviewed about their careers. Since joining the club in Autumn 2011 Dan impressed with some sturdy displays at right back and centre half, so much so that he was voted best newcomer in his debut season.
Dan’s Q and A
Describe yourself in a sentence;
Thoroughly good looking, generous to a fault, outrageously good in bed and very modest.
What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?
Wolves at home in ’94. GT was manager of Wolves, game delayed due to Wolves coaches being held up on the M1. Colin Foster put us one up, Wolves equalised late on but then Richard Johnson cracked in an 88th minute thunderbolt and I was hooked…I’m yet to experience any feeling that rivals the feeling of a last minute winner.
Finest ever WFC memory:
Fulham away in ’98. A barnstorming season, promotion was in the bag but we had seemingly blown the title – and then we went to Fulham and Bristol City bottled it at Preston. Campione, campione…
Worst away trip and why:
Wimbledon away in our first trip to the Premiership. If you were there then you’ll know why, if you weren’t then I really don’t want to talk about it.
WIFC playing highlight.
Scoring at the Rookery end at Vicarage Road at the end of last season. No further details of the goal are required. (It was an Oggy – Editor’s Note)
Favourite WIFC moment.
The initiation songs at Worldnet.
All-time favourite Watford player.
Tommy Mooney, closely followed by Helguson.
All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)
Miller, Doyley, Foster, Millen, Robbo, Young, Springy, Jonno, Adam Johnson, Mooney, Helguson.
Red shorts or black?
Black, no question.
