Incoming: Returning From Last Year

You all know them, so we’ll spare you the fanfare. Here are the “loanees” of yesteryear, “the permies” of today. Marco Cassetti, 36 – Signed until 2014 Old Italian man returns for one last year. Hertfordshire housewives and facial hair enthusiasts rejoice. https://inthewolfsmouth.com/2012/08/24/incoming-marco-cassetti/ Daniel Pudil, 27 – Signed until 2017 Czech wing-back with genuinely baffling […]

Incoming: Javier Acuña

After all the rampant online speculation, fueled mainly by now infamous ‘ITK’ accounts on Twitter, Watford have their first senior signing of the 2013/14 season. Kind of. Javier Acuña joins from Real Madrid Castilla, via Girona, via Udinese, on a season long loan (edit: it now looks like it might be a three year contract; […]

Play-Off Final: Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford Review

Crystal Palace one, Watford nil. At Wembley. The final game of a long, long season, bringing the curtain down on the English football calendar – not a game worthy of an extraordinary Watford campaign. The inevitable Kevin Phillips goal, a 105th minute penalty, condemned the Hornets to another year in the Championship, whilst elevating Palace […]

What’s the Matej with Vydra?

We at ITWM Towers are nothing if not forthright, so let us say what we’re all thinking: the last month’s Matej Vydra – he’s been a bit… crap, hasn’t he? Now, now, I know what you’re going to say: “How can you slate a guy who’s scored 20 goals in his first season at this […]

Half-Term report: The Loanees

When the Gino Pozzo rocked up to Vicarage Road this summer and initiated more change than can be found in a programme seller’s fanny pack there were more than a few voices of doubt. The Harefield stuff, the never-ending horde of loanees, Sean Dyche’s exit and the diversifying of the hitherto fish and chips, stiff […]

Charlton (H) 01.01.13 – Post-Festive Gloom As Addicks Go Cold Turkey.

Seven goals, three more disallowed, a penalty, another good appeal turned down and more bad challenges than you can shake a bestudded foot at – you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was an enthralling game that kicked off 2013 in style. In fact, for us Watford fans at least, it was a frustrating match, […]

Middlesbrough (H) 06.10.12

There really is never a dull moment to be had at Watford. When it seems the team have started to overcome their inner demons brought about by the takeover and all that came with it, the outside world starts to conspire against them. A first half red card was the catalyst for a great team […]

Working with what we’ve got: A look at the squad (Part Two)

As the season draws ever nearer, we continue our look at the current playing squad. These are the men to whom you will be devoting your weekends… 15 Stephen McGinn After a quiet start, much like the one his compatriot Craig Forsyth has experienced, McGinn was just beginning to come into his own, forming a […]

Incoming: Alex Geijo

The summer holidays are over, the Olympics are but a memory in the collective minds of all Londoners, with images of rowers, triathletes and really really fast runners burnt into our retinas, and it is time for us to return to what we know. Football. The arrival of Alex Geijo has been somewhat neglected here at […]
