Describe yourself in a sentence

Far too laid back.

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

A 3-2 home win vs Southampton in 1999. David Perpetuini was the first player I saw score a goal live for the ‘Orns. Legend!

Finest ever WFC memory

Plenty to choose from, but it’s got to be Deeney’s goal vs Leicester in the play-off semi-final. Pure chaos.

Worst away trip and why

Selhurst Park is always a horrible experience. More recently though, a Thursday evening away trip to Tranmere for an FA Cup 3rd round replay sounded like a good idea at the time. The realisation that an additional 30 minutes of extra time was needed for Tranmere to score a winner was pretty horrendous. 

WIFC playing highlight

Playing at the Vic is always special. As well as this, beating West Ham in the South East Cup Final this year was a great achievement too.

Favourite WIFC moment

My first Worldnet in 2019. It was a last minute decision from myself to go and I didn’t really know what to expect but I loved every minute of it. Even Ben Kelly’s questionable 00s hip-hop playlist on the car journey there couldn’t ruin the weekend.

All-time favourite Watford player

Heidar Helguson

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

Ben Foster; Marco Cassetti, Neil Cox, Gabriele Angella, Lloyd Doyley; Etienne Capoue, John Eustace, Almen Abdi; Tommy Smith, Heidar Helguson, Troy Deeney.

Red shorts or black?


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

Not a clue! If John-Joe O’Toole fancies an acting gig then the role is his.
