    I was doing the washing up tonight and a thought popped into my head... “I used to love it when Fuzzy kicked non-suspecting defenders and got his inevitable yellow card.”

    That then got me thinking about my favourite Watford nicknames. For me it’s one of the following:
    1. Fuzzy
    2. Milky
    3. Rambo

    Nicknames like Robbo and Hughsey aren’t allowed because they’re obvious and boring.

    "One Size" Fitz Hall.

    End of thread.

    Rambo. What a player he was, and what a player he could have been.

    "Chopper" Welbourne (although probably nicked from Chelsea).

    My favourite was "Blower" Garbett - 5 minutes in and his cheeks were bulging - the ones on his face that is....
     
  5. I haven't a clue who Fuzzy, Milky and Rambo were - but did have a soft spot for both Long Man and Bam Bam.

    Derek 'Freddy' Payne has to be a contender

    Was ruined by ms smith of circa tt 130 of the rookery just shouting c'mon princess along with her other useless lack of knowledge garb that overflows her facial opening. God she is awful and looks like paul dirkin

    Recently got dubbed this at work by a colleague. Had to insist it couldn’t stick. All hail Sir Almen.

    I thought "The Professor" was Steve Palmer? As he was the only footballer of the modern era to have gone to Cambridge. Mind you any footballer with more than 3 GCSE's tends to get labelled The Professor!

    and thereby lies the problem with footballer nicknames. They are normally about as unique as terrace chants. "There's only one sniffer (insert name)"

    yup that was SP's nickname. 'theres only 1 stevie palmer and he smokes marijuana, walking along, smoking a bong, walking in a stevie wonderland'

    Mind you theses days they probably are walking around campus smoking a bong!

    My favourite drug-based chant was all about the parties Elton John was going to have..

    “Elton John is having a party, bring your rizla , bring your charly, Elton John is having a party, we smoke weed and drink Bacardi”

    I never really got invited to one though...

    Never really understood why more members of this forum dont get invited to EJ's A+++ list celeb parties in LA. Maybe he thinks we're too busy leading our glamorous Hertfordshire lifestyles.

    Sung at the Wembley play off final 'Graham Taylor's having a party, bring your vodka and your charlie' marvellous stuff!

    Loved that chant.

    Moog doesn't need an invite to Elton's as he's already there. Despite all the touring he still gets time to run all his accounts.
