Kenny Jackett was, quite simply, one of the highest achievers in the club's history.
Kenny's intelligent and perceptive approach was the perfect foil to the all-action aggression of Les Taylor.
Kenny is the only Watford manager born in Watford and the only Golden Boy whose father was also a player at Vicarage Road, making his loyalty to "the family club" even more appropriate.
