    Mart poom must have had over 12 international caps for Estonia!

    Toszer next, experienced no nonsense leader of a centre half after and then a fast 'natural goalscorer' ...

    Job done
    Iv just said same thing to me mate, sign Toszer, Vydra and a good centre back and its time to get down the bookies!
    Don't count chickens, over-confidence and complacency bordering on arrogance crept in last close season. I plead guilty to two of those three.

    The Championship seems to get more competitive season by season. I think Aidy's promotion winning side would not get a look-in now ?

    Some big clubs like Wolves, Leeds, Forest and either Derby/QPR plus the likes of Ipswich, Wigan, Norwich, Cardiff with larger budgets than ours will be in the mix - along with ourselves. And there is always a surprise like Burnley. But that's why I love the division - it is just so more exciting than the Prem.

    I bet we could all come up with virtually the same top 5 or 6 teams in the Prem for next season, the Championship predictions would be way more unpredictable.

    Is anybody missing it already ? Looking forward to the World Cup but it's not the same as following the horns."

Watford have signed former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes on a one-year contract with the option of a further year.

The 33-year-old Brazilian will leave Spurs when his contract at White Hart Lane expires at the end of June and will subsequently join the Hornets.

On Thursday, Watford missed out on former Yeovil Town goalkeeper Marek Stech, who returned to first club Sparta Prague on a three-year deal.

Gomes moved to England in 2008 from Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and was a regular between the sticks for Spurs until 2011, making 95 Premier League starts in three seasons.

Eventually ousted by Brad Friedel, Gomes was loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the 2012/13 season but played just nine times as injury curtailed his loan spell.

Born in Jao Pinheiro, Gomes began his career with Brazilian side Cruzerio before moving to Europe to join PSV in 2004, where he spent four years and made over 100 appearances.

The 6ft 3in gloveman is a Brazilian international who has been capped 11 times at senior level, going to the both the 2006 and 2010 World Cups with the Selecao.

Twice a Confederations Cup winner with Brazil, at club level Gomes has won the Eredivisie four times and the Brazilian Serie A once.
