In the second of a three-part series, Sports Editor Anthony Matthews selects his top six Watford midfielders since the start of the 1996/97 season

Watford Observer: My top six Hornets midfielders My top six Hornets midfielders

It’s taken a week longer than intended to finalise a list of my top six Watford midfielders since the 1996/97 season, not least because it was difficult to whittle the shortlist down.

The criteria have remained the same as the top six Hornets defenders I selected – you can read that list here – and players such as Tom Cleverley, Gavin Mahon and Adam Johnson were all very close to inclusion. But here’s the six I eventually opted for:

Watford Observer:

Almen Abdi

For my money the best signing since the Pozzo takeover at Vicarage Road and arguably the most stylish midfielder to play at Vicarage Road in the past 18 years.

One player doesn’t make a team but if Watford had not been denied Abdi’s services for most of last season due to injury, it is reasonable to suggest they would have finished higher in the table.

Technically excellent, a fine reader of the game who can weigh with his share of goals, the Swiss has the ability to control a match seemingly effortlessly at his best.

Conventional wisdom has it that a side should be built from the back – and that continues to have plenty of merit – but if the Hornets can secure the services of Daniel Tozser, there is a decent argument for shaping the team around the Hungarian and Abdi.

Watford Observer:

John Eustace

A team can possess flair by the bucket-loads but it needs glue to hold it together.

There are several players in the past 18 years who were able to bond a team from the centre of the park and Steve Palmer would have been a strong contender for this role but he was my in my top six defenders.

Richard Johnson is included in this list for other reasons and Mahon and Eustace also did the ‘ugly’ side of the game very well in their time at Vicarage Road, with their influence on the pitch not fully appreciated by some until they weren’t in the side.

But Eustace just shaded it for me because of everything he bought to the table, not just as a player – and that is no way intended as a slight on Mahon’s all-round qualities.

The type to lead by encouragement and example rather than vocal outbursts, the former captain's qualities off the pitch also made him an ideal professional to have in the squad.

The Hornets undoubtedly suffered from the absence of such traits last season but that is ground about which much has already been said and written.

Watford Observer:

Micah Hyde

A lot of thought has gone into whether to include Hyde in this list because although the former Cambridge United midfielder, signed for £150,000 (what a bargain that now looks, incidentally), was a mainstay of the Hornets midfield for the majority of his seven seasons at Vicarage Road, he was one of those players for whom the word infuriating was almost created.

At his best, Hyde was almost untouchable, possessing every attribute you’d want in a top-class midfielder. But the reason Hyde didn’t go on to have a career at the very peak of the game was because he was, well, infuriating – and I still can’t put my finger on why. Commitment wasn’t an issue, he certainly wasn’t lazy, but there was something enigmatic about him.

For those two glorious seasons during Graham Taylor’s second stint, Hyde was tremendous. He continued to have some very good games before departing Vicarage Road, but not enough of them.

Watford Observer:

Richard Johnson

“Shooooot!” The long-range blockbusters will forever be a part of Vicarage Road folklore and rightly so but there was so much more to ‘Johnno’ than his master-blasters – and had it not been for a cruel knee injury the Australian could have gone on to forge a career at the highest level.

It is easy to forget the early days of Johnson’s Hornets career; at times uncertain and prone to making mistakes, there was a time when there were doubts whether he would make the grade. But then along came Hyde and a superb central midfield unit was born as the Hornets once again rose through the divisions.

To use modern football language, Johnson could play the holding role because for bravery, commitment and determination he could not be faulted. But there was so much more to Johnson’s game than doing the ‘dirty’ side, his superb passing ability to name but one.

Watford Observer:

Allan Nielsen

When Watford were relegated from the Premiership in 2000, Taylor signed two players from Tottenham Hotspur. Goalkeeper Espen Baardsen looked like he might be an astute signing for a while, but it was the Danish midfielder who was to prove by far the better of the pair in his three seasons at Vicarage Road.

The personification of ‘all-action’ with seemingly limitless energy levels, the Dane could cover every blade of grass on the pitch at his best and do so with style.

The problem with Nielsen was – and it was not his fault – that he wasn’t played in his best central midfield position most of the time. Often deployed as a makeshift winger and sometimes further back, that limited his effectiveness but his commitment could never be questioned.

Watford Observer:

Ashley Young

It wasn’t so long ago that Young was been lauded as a key figure in the England team. Since then his career at Manchester United has, at best, stagnated and, in my view, it is now time he left Old Trafford to try and rediscover the form that secured a multi-million move to then Premier League champions. It was those qualities that first came to the fore at Vicarage Road.

The now 28-year-old first rose to prominence under Ray Lewington but in the Hornets’ play-off winning season of 2005/06, Young was immense. Capable of playing on either flank or in a central striking role, he was an integral part of the Hornets’ attacking armoury, scoring some spectacular efforts in the 14 he netted during that campaign.

Well done Anthony, a good final list from a very long one i imagine.

Not too much argument from me with these choices, they were (or are) all favourites of mine in one way or another especially Johnno with his long range goals.

I think Matt Spring is unlucky not to be in there, he was a very influential player for us during the short time he was here IMO, and very underrated too.

Take a look back at the Cardiff playoff final for example and note just how much influence he had on that game.

Allan Nielsen: A good, good player. Not my favourite midfielder by any stretch, but my favourite send-off for any Watford player. Ever. 'Super, Super Al...' for over five minutes.

This is a good list. Hard to argue with much of it. Abdi and Hyde for me from the period cited.

This is his list starting from the 1996/97 season, and he is therefore perfectly correct in NOT including Craig Ramage. He played a total, I believe, of 8 or 9 games in that season, and none thereafter. It seeds to me, no matter how good Craig was during those eight games, he would hardly qualify for this list.

Neilsen was a fantastic player for us - always full of energy and commitment. He was also one step ahead of most of his teammates, playing beautiful balls into space that his teammates hadn't read. I seem to remember that he also had a big role in players taking pay cuts in one of our many previous financial crises. Left too early for me - could have been a real legend.

And Ramage in every day of the week for me.

Not too much argument on the six but for the time period when he played and the effect he had I would have Mahon ahead John Eustace in the holding role. He captained the side to promotion - a season like 2012/13 and last season when there were alot of new players to gel together.

At times Mahon thought he was a better passer of the ball than he was, but when he won possession and then laid it off to Spring, Young etc and kept it simple, he played the holding role perfectly. And protected the back 4. Eustace is similar and his goalscoring record was better - remember the overhead kick v Coventry in 2009 (or was it 2010). Better than Rooney's v City around the same time imo.
