Hello. It’s a great time to live in Watford, and not only because McDonald’s have just rolled out a home-delivery service for those who live within 1.5 miles of either of the two participating locations at Watford High Street and Watford Parade. It’s an exciting time to be a Watford fan too, with Marco Silva building what might become the best Watford team since the days of Graham Taylor. They have had a fine start to the season, with three good wins away from home, and today they are seeking a) their first home victory under Silva and b) their first big scalp under Silva.
