The Most Valued Watford Goalkeeper

How do you value a goalkeeper? In 8 seasons of producing FTRE we’ve got to interviewing a good chunk of the men who have guarded the Watford goal over the last 30 years. The youngsters, who, as a club, were dependent on as we started the podcast. Lads like Jonathan Bond (Pod 4.4) were the […]


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.

It seems that this is the most successful season when you look at the big swathe of yellow on the left hand side. What really happened that season with those signings and how did it change […]

Not only love can break your heart

Mike looks back on Almen Abdi’s time at Watford, with a tear in his eye! Football. It will always break your heart. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, something new and horrifying will happen to make you question your weekly pilgrimage, emotional investment and spiralling financial commitment. Conceding a last minute goal, the stonewall penalty […]

Farewell and Good Riddance

Following the departure of fans’ favourite Almen Abdi, From the Rookery End took to Twitter to ask fellow supporters to name the players that they had been happy to see the back of.
