Ranked: 14th in Premier League

Watford Football Club is a professional football club based in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, currently playing in the Premier League. Founded in 1881 as Watford Rovers, the club entered the FA Cup for the first time in 1886, and the Southern League a decade later. After finishing the 1914–15 season as Southern League champions under the management of Harry Kent, Watford joined the Football League in 1920. The club played at several grounds in its early history, before moving to a permanent location at Vicarage Road in 1922, where it remains. Watford spent most of the following half century in the lower divisions of The Football League, changing colours and crest on multiple occasions.

England manager Graham Taylor's tenure at the club saw Watford scale new heights. Between Taylor's appointment in 1977 and departure in 1987, Watford rose from the Fourth Division to the First Division. The team finished second in the First Division in the 1982–83 season, competed in the UEFA Cup in 1983–84, and also reached the 1984 FA Cup Final. Watford experienced a decade of decline between 1987 and 1997, before Taylor returned as full-time manager, leading the team to successive promotions from the renamed Second Division to the Premier League for one season in 1999–2000. The club experienced a further one season stint in the top division of English football during the 2006–07 season, under Aidy Boothroyd's management; eight years in the Championship followed. Watford secured promotion in 2014–15, and have remained in the Premier League since the 2015–16 season.

Watford is owned by the Pozzo family, which also owns Udinese Calcio in Italy and previously Granada CF in Spain. Sir Elton John, who owned Watford during both of Graham Taylor's successful periods as manager, served alongside Taylor as the club's joint Honorary Life President until 2008, only to later resume the role he shared alongside Graham Taylor until Taylor's death.

Like the look of the team, still there are a few in there that owe us one. Maybe tonight is the night for certain players to come good, it’s time. Hope it’s 1-3.

Time for Gerard to show his worth. Little but fortunate to be ahead of Gray on current form IMHO.

0-2 to Watford 💛🐝

No live streaming on my profile.

3-1 to the watford boys..


Noses in front ...

No J. Holebas Rip to Watford

Come on the mighty

Not a bad starting XI. + strong bench. It's a squad thing.

Is it still 2:1?

Good luck WATFORD you can do it

For me delefia makes too many off side mistakes.

Key will be an aggressive start and scoring on those chances - need at least up 2-0 by halftime

Lets Start <3 👇Cardiff vs Watford FC👇 👉 Link HD : premier-leauge-tv.blogspot.com/2019/02/cardiff-vs-watford-fc.html

Why is he playing Deulofeu up front he is a wide player!!!!!

Live 📺⚽ bit.ly/Skykingdom

On paper looks like a strong line up. Let's hope they can deliver. Good luck golden boys.

Masina weak link

Not bad, shame still no Kiko

It looks tasty other than the defence. Time for new legs next year. Yet this could be one of our most successful season ever. A far cry from when I used to stand on the bogside with my Dad in 1975

Come on u horns!!

Strong team , maybe we can finally manage to score 5 in a game 😄 seriously in 4 season we scored 4 goals in 2 games , few games 3 then it was just thank you Gomes , thank you Foster ! I understand that 1-0 mean 3 points but I hardy got any nails left to bite lol , good luck yellow army and stay injury free guys , tonight is not important really , March 16th is the big one . COYH !!!!!

Just hope Watford can create more chances (and take some of them) and play for the full ninety minutes. Then the 40 mark will surely be reached. COYH

They were terrible at The Vic scoreline flattered them.

3 - 1 Watford! Come on you Golden Boys! Looking forward to seeing it!! ⚽️🐝

Watford will win 3 nil tonight



What a great double that would be and a foundation for the English Rugby Team to smash the “Boyos” tomorrow. COYH

If they score more goals then yes.


Jumping in the car now ready to hit the M4! You oooooorrrrns!! 🐝🐝

Pereyra Yes, Success No

Not Success. Great to have Pereyra back

Pereyra definitely as he gives us creativity.Success as an impact player on the bench with his pace,power and unpredictability

Prodl no thanks

Great to see Pereyra back. Would have loved to have seen Kiko back

Not success

Sorry to say Success just doesn’t do it for me , has the first touch of a baby elephant constantly falling over, doesn’t fill me with confidence, send him out on loan next season to get game time experience.

💰 💰 ✔ 💥 Bu hafta iddaayı sömürüyoruz ! 💥✔ 💰 💰 Kazanmak bizim için ne kadar kolaysa , kaybetmekte o kadar zor ve acıdır.Onun için kaybetmek yok kardeşlerim acılara , zorluklara dur demeye geldim ben ne kadar kredi borçları , fatura , ev kirası dertleriniz varsa inşallah yarın hepsine son vereceğim..Dediğim gibi kaybetmek yok sadece kazanmak var. Maç SONU ÖDEME YOKTUR ❌ 📩KUPON ALMAK İSTEYENLER MESAJ ATMASI YETERLİ+

Pereyra a great in. Success has been disappointing this season.

It's good to have options.

Sure the backroom team will want him off early, but should start for me

Great to have them back.

Pereyra definately, Prodl has been out for a long time now.

Good Luck

it will be good to see Pereyra back. the team has missed his creativity.

Britos deserves to start with Cathcart imo. Janmaat has been good too. Masina will start at Left back. Hopefully good old Holebas cheers him on
