Since the podcast started in 2010, our monthly editions have looked back at a series of matches. We like to reflect and look at a developing stories that develop over a few games, not pick every game to pieces.

The From the Rookery End podcasts are the hub of this site; all our previous podcasts are available here.

5.7 – Altitude Training

Another trip to Chelsea for Watford in the FA Cup, and the FTRE boys decided to make it the venue of the first podcast of 2015. There is a more positive month of results, but will the boys be more positive about the team?

5.6 – Horses for Courses

For our December 2014 podcast, Jon, Jason and Mike head to Royston to see Watford in the 2nd Round of the Herts Senior Cup! The boys discuss 4 straight defeats, chat to Head of Academy Chris McGuane and, captain on the night, Tommie Hoban.

5.5 – Back to The Future Part II

It’s a podcast of two halves recorded at Tales From The Vicarage Live. In the first half, Jon, Jason and Mike discuss the first four Watford games with Slav Jo as Head Coach.

5.4 – Critical Friends

Recorded on the night that it was announced that Billy McKinlay was being replaced by Slaviša Jokanović as the Head Coach of Watford FC, Jon Jason and Mike chat about the extraordinary whirlwind that has been the last 37 days in Watford history.

5.3 – Oscar Nominated

“It’s never dull being a Watford fan” is an oft used phrase, but never has it been so true than over the last few weeks.

5.2 – Very Fun Beginnings

Jon and Jason are joined by David Cameron Walker as they get excited about the coming season – it’s hard not to on the opening day. They discuss returning players, formations, what the Championship will be like this season and put a fuse, a pie and a duck into the 100 Objects list.

5.1 – Dare to Believe?

Jon and Mike head to Borehamwood to get a glancing look at the 2014-15 Watford squad. They chat about the on-going Deeney situation, chat to Watford Observer journalist Frank Smith and try to figure out if they dare to believe.

4.12 – Top 10 of 2013-2014

For the final time this season, Jon, Jason and Mike are here with a new podcast. In this episode they countdown the Top 10 things of the 2013-2014 season and talk to Ross Wilson, former Director of Football Operations at the club.

4.11 – As One Ends, Another Begins

We had huge levels of interest in the Scott Duxbury special, so thanks to everyone that listened and for all the great feedback we received. One of the key messages that we took away form the interview was how integral the Harefield Academy remains to the club’s plans, something that some supporters had questioned after the Pozzo family takeover. This was obviously great to hear, and in this podcast we continue our investigation into the state of the Watford youth setup with an interview with Academy Chief, Chris McGuane.

4.10 – Archangella Gabriele

Jon, Jason and Mike are back as Watford face the last 12 games of this season. They talk with defensive master Gabriele Angella about his season at Watford so far as well as taking a look at the U18 boys and chatting with friend of the podcast Nick Cox.
