We’re still a month away from the big kick off, but with the squad taking shape and pre-season friendlies well underway, we thought it was about time we gave the all new From the Rookery End Premier League microphone a run out and got out there amongst it. When the news broke that the friendly with AFC Wimbledon coincided with their annual beer festival, the decision to attend was effectively taken out of our hands. We would be there…
The day turned out to be all we’d hoped with glorious weather and familiar Hornets’ faces at every turn. As you’ll hear on the podcast, there was plenty to discuss – the new manager, the ongoing changes to the stadium and facilities, player arrivals and departures – as per usual we weren’t left wanting for discussion points.
We were also blessed with two fantastic guests. Football Manager supremo and lifelong Watford supporter Miles Jacobson took time out to tell us about his affinity for Wimbledon and his hopes for Watford this season, whilst promotion hero Heurelho Gomes gave us a fascinating insight as to what is was like to play in such a hard fought season, as well as telling us exactly what it’s like to play in goal for Brazil.
As ever, the podcast is free to download from iTunes or you can listen via the player at the top of the page.
Enjoy and Come on you Horns!
