Number 1 - Heurelho Gomes

Goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes joined Watford in May 2014 following his release from Tottenham Hotspur and he has proven to be a reliable figure between the goalposts for the Hornets. Having started his career in his native Brazil with Cruzeiro, Gomes moved to PSV in the summer of 2004, where he quickly became a fan favourite. Over four years, he helped PSV win the Dutch Eredivisie and also turned out for the club in European competitions such as the Champions League. Gomes then joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2008 and after two years as the club's number one, Gomes slipped down the pecking order at the North London club, following the signings of Brad Friedel and Hugo Lloris. He was loaned out to Hoffenheim in 2013, but his move was to be cut short after picking up an injury. After representing Spurs 97 times, the shot-stopper was released in the summer of 2014 and Watford wasted no time in signing the experienced goalkeeper, who has been capped at international level by Brazil. Gomes made his Watford debut on the opening day of the 2014/15 season and went on to play a huge part in the Hornets' promotion to the Premier League, making a number of crucial saves and keeping 15 clean sheets. The Brazilian was to be a virtual ever-present over the course of the 2015/16 season, pulling off a number of magnificent saves and helping to keep the Golden Boys in the Premier League. He deservidly won Watford's Player-Of-The-Season and Players-Player-Of-The-Season awards for his efforts and is now a firm fan favourite among supporters.
