Watford took on St Albans City at Clarence Park in a pre-season friendly.

The summer departure of Gianluca Vialli and his attituides to diet in particular was evidenced by the presence of three injured Watford players in the queue for the burger van.

A brace for Stephen Hughes, his ony goals for the first team, and further strikes from Jason Norville and Dominic Foley, gave the visitors a 4-2 victory.

I sat next to Fessy in a McDonalds after Brighton away last season. He was furious with his disallowed goal. But do I go on about it....
Alright, I'll shut up.

Norville wasn't injured, he scored. I was there, great club, a steward parked my bicycle for me while I had a few slurps in the clubhouse before the game.
What's wrong with the miserable tw*ts who suggest on here how bored they are with trivia. Here's the thing: when you see "On this date in Watford FC history", don't fecking read it, go straight to reports on "Strictly Come Dancing on Ice while holding scissors" to get a buzz in your oh so exciting lives.
