    Mo Johnston interesting - Possibly the best finisher I have seen, but was he here long enough and the manner of his departure!!! Had he stayed with us for a season or two I believe we would have won a trophy - League/ FA Cup.

    Troy ? I like Troy, I think he is a strong Championship player but no more. Had he led us to the Prem yes. A legend..not yet, but hopefully he will stay and become one though interest from Everton suggests otherwise.

    I would pick Marlon above Troy if he was not such a s..t.

    Frank Mitchell don't know enough to comment.

    The other four totally agree.. No one from the 60s ? I chose Welbourne but could have been Scullion... May be we should have 2 banners."

Watford fans are being asked to vote on which Hornets greats should be included in a legends banner which will be displayed at Vicarage Road.

Supporters group The 1881 are creating a 25m by 15m banner which will display Graham Taylor and eight of the club's greatest players.

The poll will include a shortlist of 49 players and is expected to be on the group's website by 9am tomorrow morning.

The voting is scheduled to take place until early July and the banner should be ready in August or September.

The group are also encouraging fans to join them at the Watford Ladies versus Millwall Lionesses game at Berkhamsted Town on Sunday, July 6.

Who would make your eight-man shortlist? Leave a comment below and then cast your vote here from tomorrow. The 1881 stressed the need to read their accompanying post before voting.
