Transfer Windows

The 2018 Summer Transfer window is shut. For Watford, it doesn’t seem to have be SLAMMED shut. I have a vision of Gino and Scott going over to the window – in my mind it’s an ornate sash window –  having one last look outside, before nodding at each other and pulling the window down […]

FTRE in Four Four Two

Those of you that buy Four Four Two magazine may well have noticed that two of the From the Rookery End team were mentioned. Our very own Kieran has penned an incredible piece on the WSL, while Mike answered a few questions about Watford’s upcoming season. As regular listeners to the podcast will know, Mike […]

Jason’s Predictions (2018-19)

Our Jason is a great predictor. He has predicted our recent big wins against Liverpool under QSF and Manchester United under Walter. So for this season (the 2018-19) we got him to predict every result and score for every game. You can see them below, but he reckons we’ll end on 48 points, 13 wins, […]

Who’s most like Watford?

This post was originally published in the Golden Pages Fanzine and was a transcript of Jon: Welcome to another From The Rookery End column in Golden Pages. And this one is a little different.

WHAT WILL SUCCESS LOOK LIKE?*

Everything seems new again, ‘all shiny and new’. A new kit, a few new players and fingers crossed a new, and sustained, sense of optimism in the air. This buoyancy is on a high and seems to be radiating from our new Head Coach Marco Silva. We’ve been here before, many times, and not just […]

Dreaming of Watford

We all probably think about Watford far too much. From the moment we wake, until we rest our weary heads, the Glory Hornets are running around in our minds. They are in our every thought – Sebastian Prödl, in Mike’s particularly. They even turn up in our deepest of subconscious. Our dreams now are full […]

You’re not fit to wear the shirt

Who do you never want Watford to sign? A legend at his club, winner of 16 major, and respected, trophies (Premier League titles, FA Cups, European Cups) and over 50 caps for his country – who wouldn’t want Watford to sign such experience? He bound to be the sort of man to help us take […]
