The List 2018. 15/05/2018

Posted by Matt Rowson in Thoughts about things.

You know the deal.  Herewith your summer list of players linked with the Hornets since the close of the January window, a list that will be kept up to date throughout the summer so bookmark if you Like This Sort Of Thing.  A very low bar of credibility is employed, but a mere “I think Watford should sign…” falls below it.

Was looking forward to this post since I read about us going after Callum McGregor on instagram, let the insanity commence! Or do we wait until after someone scores a never-to-be-repeated piece of awesomeness at the WC2018 and sign them instead. Exciting!

Cheers Steven. Glad it’s not just me…

Surprised that the Hornets haven’t been linked with Danny Rose, whom the Telegraph thinks is surplus to requirement at Spurs.

Matt Rowson - 15/05/2018

Seeing as his wage demands are the root of the issue and he’s supposed to be going to United, I am less surprised 😉
