    The prize should go to any idiot that lined the pitch for our game vs Sheffield Wednesday in 2015

    Went to goodison the year bassett took us down. I sat in the main stand with my brother and as far as we were aware the only Watford supporters in the stand. Obviously we were getting beaten 1-0 when we fluked a corner. The ball was whipped in and Trevor Senior headed it past the post, the ball bouncing off the advertising hoardings and rippling the back of the net. The whole crowd saw it.....apart from me and my bros who leapt up to cheer a 'goal'. Oh how they all laughed:(

    I had a similar experience to this sitting amongst Ipswich fans at Portman Road in the GT promotion season. We had come back from 3-0 down to 3-2 when Ben Iroha scuffed a shot a few inches wide in about the 89th minute.

    There was a bit of chuntering about my reaction but the fans around me were quite good about it (helped that Ipswich held on, I guess!) and several shook my hand at the end.

    He was a nice bloke. Sat behind us at play off final in Cardiff and had a good laugh with him.

    You were lucky that's all they did - but Everton fans seem a pretty mild-mannered lot from my experience and what I've heard.

    The most embarrassed i've been supporting Watford is definitely in the Premier League season 06/07 when, for some inexplicable reason, our weirdo supporters decided to take vegetables to football matches and wave them around! The mind boggles.

    Did something very similar at Southend after winning 4-0. Walking along singing, arms out wide, and I didn't see a bollard. A very painful collision with my nuts and the coppers found it rather amusing.

    Vommed in the pub toilets at Scarborough in the FA Cup. I was about 16 and with a bunch of older lads and tried to impress by keeping up with their drinking.

    For me it was probably going on the pitch for the final game of the 99/00 Premier League season for fan appreciation day and holding up a random card with a letter or number on it to win a prize. Out of everything I could have won I got a free Arriva bus pass for the Watford area, which I didn’t even live in. Even when I wrote to the club and told them this and they should give the prize to someone who needed it more they ignored me. Maybe they too were embarrassed by this prize.

    When I was a teacher, I went to see us versus Fulham away, think it was a Friday night. I was an assistant head in change of behaviour, really strict, especially on things like swearing etc. The game happened to be TV and in the first half, there was a contentious decision and one of our players dived for a foul (most likely Fessi), I then happened to spew a load of expletives at the ref calling him a f-ing this and c*** etc. What I didn't know was the SKY cameras had cut to our fans at that exact point, and it didn't take a lip reader to read what I was saying. A fair few embarrassing conversations on Monday morning there!

    I remember that day! Wasn't there a range of top prizes from paying for your season tickets, watching a game from director's box, signed shirt etc. and the bus pass was basically the worst of the lot!

    In a nutshell, yes.

    I collected all four tokens off the different programs as well, all for a bus pass.

    Yeah that was ******* awful. For a mates stag do, we went away to Sheffield United for a full day and night out. We made him wear a curly yellow wig, an Elton John Watford scarf and carry a butternut squash, which was the specified vegetable for the game. He was not happy - I think he'd rather have had to do some humiliating fancy dress than appear to be one of the vegetable vegetables.

    I seem to remember the butternut squash got launched somewhere near Bramhall Lane.

    The most embarrassed I’ve been is heading home from Brighton promptly after the match because I didn’t want to piss off my girlfriend.

    We then got inexplicably promoted and I found out on a train.

    She’s now my fiancé. Even though she didn’t even tell me to come home on time, I blame her to this day, because I missed out celebrating in the sea.

    I was also so drunk that I high fived Doyley outside the stadium without even taking a photo. What a day full of regrets.

    At least you weren't so drunk you accidentally married Doyley outside the stadium. That can easily upset a girlfriend.

    I think my wife would be thrilled if she discovered that I had married Doyley outside the stadium, or anywhere else, before I married her.

    So you couldn’t turn up with just any vegetable, you had to bring the specified vegetable!? o_O Yes that is embarrassing.

    Standing amidst Northwich Victoria supporters when we lost 3-2 to them in the cup. They were all carrying candles because SEJ had insisted that the game start at 2pm as he didn't trust their floodlights.

    Yes. Not sure what media they used to promote their campaign and announce the vegetable for the next away game, but that's how it went.

    They'd all be in the away end at bang on 2pm all laughing about how zany and crazy they were.

    In some ways it's a shame we didn't play Luton then, who would hopefully have left them needing the vegetable surgically removed.

    When I lived in Kent, I decided to go and watch the Watford U-23s play away at Gillingham one freezing, muddy winter Saturday morning.

    There were very few other spectators and certainly no 'away fans' like me stood all on my own on the touchline in my Watford scarf under big coat. I was an object of slight curiosity, even amongst the players. You could tell.

    I don't remember much about the game itself, but right towards the end, the ball got booted out in my direction. As I decided between either trapping it and chipping it back or playing it first time, I took a step forward with my eye firmly fixed on the ball.....and slipped arse over ***, sitting down with a nice splat in the freezing mud.

    Everyone tittered, including all the players.

    I also forgot the Elton John sing-along at HT against Southampton a couple of seasons ago. Woeful.

    What happened to those 4 “winners” who looked totally lost and confused about it all.

    I got the official supporters coach to a few away games when they were free a few years ago. True rock bottom.

    I was a police officer at the game between Spurs v Watford at White Hart Lane in 1985. I managed to make sure I was behind the goal at the Watford end "policing the crowd" in full uniform. We went into a 0-3 lead by half time and I couldn't stop myself celebrating each goal with increasing excitement. It was totally unprofessional.

    I was spotted by the Chief Super who was scanning it all with his bino's. He sent a couple of officers to get me outside the ground at half time where they bundled me into the back of a police transit and locked me in, and I missed the remainder of the glorious 1-5 win. B******s!

    A few years earlier in an Arsenal match at Highbury, I was on the track and the ball came towards me during the game. I kicked it back to Willie Young the Arsenal centre half, and then I tripped over the edge of the pitch and landed flat on my arse in front of a 40,000 crowd who all seemed to roar with laughter. Willie shouted it was "...the best fooking pass I've received all fooking afternoon!"

    And The Big Match on Sunday afternoon included a clip of me falling over in their snippets of action in the opening credits for a few weeks.

    Met Jonno and Peter Kennedy in Kudos after we had been beaten 3-2 at Wigan. Despite hero worshipping them for scoring against the scum for some reason all I said to them was how **** they had been against Wigan. I think they thought I was a prat and it turned out they were correct

    I am sure that this story has been told many times before but it is worth retelling.

    In the early 2000's Mrs Mad (yes she answers to that name) was in the away disability section of the QPR ground helping another fan. When Watford scored the first goal she lifted her shirt over her head and started jumping up and down in celebration. Not the worst thing you may think but as it was a warm day she forgot she was not wearing anything under her shirt and she was exposing her bouncing breasts to the QPR fans. Mrs Mad was in her late 40's at the time so it was not necessarily what the QPR fans wanted to see after going a goal behind. Unfortunately QPR equalised and their fans could be seen lifting their shirts in celebration over their heads, licking their fingers and running them around their nipples at then pointing at her.

    If you put your full pint on the railing above the stairs near the V Bar, don't be surprised if it gets knocked over, soaking some poor bystander below.
