I don’t know about everyone else, but I have certainly missed West Ham not playing and I am looking forward to a ‘normal’ weekend with West Ham back out in action.
With Watford just two points below us and with the team wanting revenge for the home fixture earlier in the season, it should be an exciting game. If you are making the short journey to Watford here is all the information you will need. Enjoy the game and let’s hope we are all celebrating a victory tomorrow evening.
Address: Vicarage Road, Watford, WD18 0ER
If you are one of the 2,100 fans lucky enough to be going to Watford, you will be seated behind the goal in the Vicarage Road stand. The legroom is sufficient and there are no pillars, meaning no obstructions and a decent view.
From London Stadium it takes approximately an hour depending on traffic. The quickest option by car is to take the M25, but you can also take the North Circular.
There is no parking available for fans at the ground and street parking is restricted for local residents with matchday permits. Watford town centre has several car parks, the easiest of which for access to Vicarage Road is Church Car Park on the inside of the ring-road, opposite the turn-off into Vicarage Road. All town centre car parks are within a 10 minute walk of Vicarage Road.
One good option is Gade car park is located just off Rickmansworth Road, it costs £1.00p/h up to 5 hours and £6.00 for up to 12 hours.

Train/Bus The nearest station is Watford High Street, a 10 minute walk away from the ground and Watford Junction train station is about a 20 minute walk. Watford also has its own London Underground tube station, which is on the Metropolitan Line and is situated just under one mile from Vicarage Road.
Be aware that you won’t be able to buy any alcohol in the ground itself, but I have listed below a few away fan friendly pubs.
- The Oddfellows on Fearnley Street is just 5 minutes from ground.
- The Moon Under Water (Weatherspoons) in the High Street, welcomes children if they are eating and is probably the cheapest for food and drink.
- There is also an O’Neills and Walkabout nearby on the High Street.
If you’re not going to be at the match, make sure you add ‘thewesthamway’ on Snapchat and keep an eye on @WestHamWaycouk on Twitter for live updates throughout the game.
I have a prediction for the game, here it is: Watford 1 – 2 West Ham, Antonio and Calleri to score. What are your predictions? Let me know on Twitter @flump9
