I’m not sure if they’ll be doing a Football League commentary game on BBC Five Live Sports Extra. Watford have been know to be the main commentary game but it is broken up quite a lot with scores from around the league. It may return when the cricket season is over!
Roll on Sheffield on Saturday
You might have heard Jimmy Russo’s interview with BBC 3 counties in the last few days…
Yesterday Vicarage Road was definitely a first day of school. There was the excitement of being back there for the first time, the sun was out, we had a new manager, a great pre-season – and at 3pm everything in the Watford world was good.
I’ve always wanted to create a Rookery End chant – I don’t know why, maybe it’s the creative challenge?
Saying the word ‘money’ around Watford is like saying the word ‘Voldermort’ on the Leavsden Studio set of Harry Potter. However, today has seen money coming and and going out of the Vicarage Road bank accounts so there is no getting around not using it.
It’s only a week till the start of the new football season and “From The Rookery End” will be following Watford each week on this blog and on our podcasts.
Well, it may well be slightly frustrating, mildly amusing, at times entertaining and often quite annoying, but at least it is fun again. After a year or so of dreadful football, discontent among supporters, financial worries and boardroom horror stories, it’s starting to feel like Watford again.
So there we have it. Aidy is no more. The instant reaction is shock, despite being a supporter for over 20 years, sacking a manager still doesn’t seem like a very Watford-like thing to do. It feels like one of those things that happens to other clubs…
“…but funny things happen when you least expect it, especially at Watford…” That’s what I said at the end of my last post after the defeat to Plymouth – looking forward to the Reading game. Funny things can happen. Crikey, did they happen!
