Incoming: Geoffrey Mujangi Bia

Blimey, here’s a novelty: a permanent(ish) transfer from an un-Pozzoed club! Geoffrey, as he will hence be known for expediency’s sake, comes highly bigged-up by the Official Site – ‘one of Europe’s most exciting wingers’ say they, and one who was chased by a host of big European clubs. On the face of it, it […]

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 […]

Incoming: Fitz Hall

As was the case with Manuel Almunia, it is hard to know how exactly to approach Fitz Hall. I think most Watford fans will have been turned against him by his touchline fight with Aidy Boothroyd in Watford’s professional dispatching of Hall’s Crystal Palace in the second leg playoff semi final in 2006. It may […]

Incoming: Manuel Almunia

What to say about Manuel Almunia? In stark contrast to the five loanees, Almunia together with Fitz Hall – the two “permanent” additions to the squad (both have been handed one-year deals) – are preceded by reputations in England that make fans’ approaches to them more definitive. Let’s be clear about this: no matter how […]

Incoming: Ikechi Anya

The next player that we welcome to Vicarage Road is something of a novelty – a loanee from the capofamiglia that I’ve actually heard of! The winger Ikechi Anya has experience of playing in England, and will be hoping to prove his worth upon his return to this gilded isle. For Anya’s career has been […]

Incoming: Steve Leo Beleck

With a transfer embargo lifted, Watford yesterday confirmed the signings of seven (SEVEN) new players. Rather than the worrying wholesale number it seems, this amounts to the cumulation of a summer’s recruitment. With three of the players looked at already (Abdi, Pudil and Vydra), it’s time to look at the rest, starting with the nineteen […]

Incoming: Almen Abdi

When Watford became a part of the Pozzo brotherhood, we were told of how we would benefit from their excellent scouting network, and now, in the form of Almen Abdi, comes our third signing of the close season, this one from a little club called Udinese in Italy. Though his parent club may be consistent […]

Incoming: Pudil and Vydra

On the day that Watford’s new management team have faced the nation’s media, and the presumably-anxious squad, for the first time, the ‘Pozzo Family’ has provided its first fruit in the shape of two season-long loans, one from each of our continental brothers. From Granada comes Daniel Pudil, a left sided player yet to feature […]
