Can we change this thread title to something more fitting/respectful? Something like Sir Graham tributes.

'Graham Taylor'

ĎSir Graham Taylorí.

Much better thanks

The best tribute we could pay the great man would be to sort this "shambles" of a club out and be challenging for the title within 18 months of promotion.

Ideally with a beanpole winger.

Which will always remind me of his last game at Goodison.

We also did an impressively long and loud Big Fat Ron's claret and blue army at Grimsby in the cup in midweek in BFR's first season.

That was such an amazing experience. Relentess.

Well deserved and well done to Watford. It isn't the best likeness in the world but I have seen plenty worse statues of football figures over the years.

The likeness may not be great, I thought it was Bobby Robson when I first saw it, but what a brilliant statue. By having space either side of him on the bench, it will allow generations of Watford fans to be photographed sitting next to him, ensuring his memory lives on for ever.

Good point. Although I should say I have a picture of myself and SGT framed in my living room. We are the two better looking ones than the other two blokes in the picture. Apologies for any offence to Nev and Nigel Spink. ;)

Just seen Watford are doing a few tributes today to remember him given he passed away three years ago.

Have we got anything planned for Tuesday?

Poor show if villa didn't do any tribute last Sunday

Maybe it's saved for the Graham Taylor derby on Tuesday 

Why should we? We've never done it for any other manager.

I absolutely loved SGT and will always be grateful for what he did for us, like most on here I was really upset when he passed. But the time for tributes was then and we canít keep revisiting this every year.

Heíll never be forgotten.

Agreed, as much as I loved SGT
