Those of a statistical disposition may notice that Dave didn’t fill in the chart 100% accurately. That does not matter. The 9 year old Dave did this chart with passion, and that’s all that matters.
Every football fan loves a Wallchart. Religiously filling it in through out a season, or a tournament, is always fun and deeply satisfying once complete. If it is loved, a wallchart can show the highs and lows, the intricate details of a teams journey and who the heroes were.
Recently, whilst clearing out his stuff from the attic of his family home, Watford Internet FC manager Dave Messenger found such a wallchart from when he was 9, and it wasn’t just any old Watford season that he documented. Tt was the 1982-1983 season – Watford’s most successful ever!.
