Welcome back to Vicarage Road – or are you sure you are at the right ground?
The new stand represents a new era for the club, and I hope that it refuels everyone's ambitions and enthusiasm.
This is the start of my tenth season, and along with the Chairman, Directors and Management colleagues, we shall continue to try to give a lead in continuing to make Watford a progressive, successful – but above all friendly club.
We know that there are going to be a lot of changes in professional football – and in fact some of those changes are already taking place – and we want to make sure that Watford can play its part in helping to make sure that any change will be for the better.
Yes, I am sure that sooner or later some “expert” will pass an opinion that the money for the stand should have been spent on players – what an original comment that will be!
