Have we ever had any other players with four syllables in their surname?
I blame the Limoncello...
As I posted the other day, my sources tell me that if you pronounce Ekstrand's name the correct, original way, it has four syllables...
Forestieri had no fewer than 5.
Not a patch on the correct pronunciation of his surname Pumpernickel, which has 43 syllables...
Rejoins us this month, sore says tell me...
Along with Hogg...
As did Noel-Williams, depending on how you pronounced it.
Eleftheriou is a 5, even though he made just 1 first team appearance.
Iwelumo is another 4.
Noel-Williams is a 3, maximum...
If you talk like a slack-jawed yokel.
One Size Fitz Hall has 4 .
Delle- Bashiru has 5
...but he’s no Jan Venegoor of Hesselink. We really missed out there.
You useless lump of **** has six syllables.
But other than those... Probably.
Um, you might need a bit of a counting refresher there, mate; 'Gray' only has the one syllable.
Not many fans forked out for that shirt .
Yves Makabu-Ma-Kalambay has to be the most lengthy name we've ever had. Was briefly on loan as emergency GK cover in 2006 when Foster got suspended.
Never made it off the bench, but was the first Watford player to have the squad number 50.
If his first name was Marvellous that would have been a name worthy of gracing any first XI.
The footballer with the most letters is Neil Webb. Former Man Utd defender.
"After Webb left Reading, he could occasionally be found selling programmes at Reading's Madejski Stadium. He became a postman and was featured in the Observer Sport Supplement in a "Where Are They Now?" feature and is currently working for a transport company. He is also a regular guest on Talksport"
The key thing about this signing is less about syllables, and more about the Watford players A-Z now being achievable
How could you forget Zuniga?!...
And I only watched his goal against Man U last weekend.
Which mean's 'demon's fart.'
And Zarate, or am I imagining it?
Andy Hessenthaler. Larry McGettigan,
