14th July 2001- Friendly, Aylesbury United 1 Watford 2

Gianluca Vialli’s first game in charge.

Looking as unlike any previous Watford manager as it’s possible to look within the usual constraints of one head, only four limbs and so on. Striding across the pitch in a smart cream suit, surrounded by the press and photographers who probably exited the ground before the game kicked off, Luca is more Tom Cruise than he is Mike Keen.
