Was the final doll Derek Payne?!
You'd be surprised to see how much UK football club paraphernalia is available here in Norway. You won't be surprised to hear none of it is ours.
In 18 years living here ive only spotted one Watford shirt, at a music festival. I made my way over to the bloke and said "excellent.. a fellow Watford fan!" To which he replied.. "Sorry no, i just liked the colours"
Obviously he didn't want to wear a Sweden shirt.
He sounds like a psychopath in every way.
This might win: around 10 years ago I bought a Watford FC Russian doll in Prague when we weren't even in the Prem.
As I recall it featured Tommy Smith, John Joe O'Toole, John Eustace, Jay Demerit and a tiny little Jobi McAnuff in the middle.
Win? I didn’t realise it was a competition!
In that case, I bought a voodoo doll of Younes Kaboul on Nha Trang beach about 18 months ago...
Then hurry up and reattach it's leg, before kabasele makes another mistake.
I’d pay £500 for that.
Edit. Hold your horses. I’ve found a set for £13 with a mini McGugan in the middle.
A slightly oversized McAnuff starred for The Wood on tv last weekend.
Came up on FB recently. Apologies if it's your pics..
and more recent. Notice they all have the same face.. because the person who made them had no idea what the Watford players looked like!
Must be the old Deeney (cause all the others fit inside him)
Spot the (un)deliberate mistake.
Not my pics, but the top one is the same design! Seems like it was a one off thing in 2009 until this year!
During a holiday I had a few years back, the Hotel 'Activity Hosts' or 'Groovy gang' as I like to call em held a penalty shoot out at the pool. Obviously, I had to go up and prove my English masculinity and dominance in front of all these fellow foreigners (well, actually I was peer pressured).
As they went round the volunteer contestants, we had to presumably shout down the microphone where we were from and when it came to me, I screamed "Watford!" with the 'Ardest accent I could possibly make in front of all these tomato faced American tourists watching from their sunbeds... Due to the fact that noone knew what the actual **** I was saying, I repeated it... The host raised his eyebrow as he hadn't a clue what a 'Watford' was... I had to revert back to the usual "Yeah, nevermind, I'm from London" with a bit of Cockney accent to establish that we aren't all the stereotypical English posh-men from Cambridgeshire.
Long story short, this proud Watfordian beat those stupid ignorant yanks in the very sport my proud nation created and I must admit, toe-punts are the way to go in hostile situations such as that.
I’ve got £10 on this holiday being in Benidorm.
I was bought a Russian Doll set from Prague, I think it was a few years before that. How random!
Tales from the Vic 6 in Reading Waterstones. Plenty of calendars from various locations as well. Brought a set of very nice place mats, heavy stone variety, with very old school program images on (60’s-80’s) at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
The somewhat similar dolls have a little of the Walcott/Gibbs/Oxlade about them.
You owe me a tenner mate. Was actually a resort in Mexico, but I think a holiday in Benidorm would have been a better place in regards to showing off my masculinity come to think of it.
I would imagine you could count tomato faced Americans on sunbeds holidaying in Benidorm on about no fingers.
As I recall there were 2 or 3 shops almost exclusively selling these from just about every English club. Very odd.
Dumb fool ain't got no class neither:
FWIW: My 17 YO daugter (and her mates) drink those pre-mixed Snowballs* out of champagne coupes and think it's the height of sophistication.
*NOT da yoot's usage of the word.
I remember "Pony" but I have no idea what it was (also I've never seen anyone drink one). A quick google produced this - a real WTF moment.
Is this why people often say that women's football is a little pony?
I guess you clicked on the programme? Games played at Woodside Stadium, Watford.. https://unlockingthehiddenhistory.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/pony-programme.jpg?w=768&h=576
I too have a set that I bought in Prague, but mine is a real antique. It starts with Neil Cox and goes though to a tiny Helguson, with Doyley, Ardley and Chamberlain.
Funny story: my daughter was playing with it when she was a toddler and nearly choked to death on the Helguson. Walked into the kitchen, purple in the face, coughed and out flew the Icelandic legend.
You're a very naughty boy @Stevohorn.
No I didn't!
Legend or not, I would have sued the pants off him.
Funny where these threads lead to sometimes but i found ths YT clip of a guy taste testing some 30 year old Pony (sherry) a couple of years back. One of the more bizarre YT clips ive come across recently..
EDIT: Hoddlee henuff I've been looking on ebay as those "Pony" "wine" glasses (not the "schooners") look the ideal size and shape to serve my sloe-gin in.
Do you make your own?
Well, not the gin OBVIOUSLY AS THAT'S ILLEGAL. I supposed I should have said "sloe'd-gin*" but yes.
*And slyder (served hot and "mulled"), patxaran (my personal favourite), slerry and (for the first time last year for this xmas) white slport.
Latecomer to this thread but remembered I bought this magnificent Watford keepsake, ‘Watford rule’ at a market stall in Tavistock, Devon.
Usual suspect other top EPL clubs ‘rule’ rulers on offer of course, but I was impressed he had ours and I asked the stallholder how the Watford rule sales were going?
“A little slow” was his whimsical reply.
I saw a guy wearing a Watford shirt in Abidjan (ivory coast) my heart missed a beat and then i saw he didnt have any shoes......oxfam!!
