100 greatest100 Greatest Watford wins- No.18: If you listened to the gossip in the pubs and clubs around Watford you’d have heard a familiar story, told with all the certainty of the saloon bar. Watford don’t want promotion. They keep throwing it away on purpose. Bonser doesn’t want the hassle. The board don’t want to pay Division Two bonuses or improve the ground.
