Podcasts

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.

Admirable at Anfield (10.22)

LIVERPOOL 2-0 WATFORD: Jon and Mike convened on Sunday morning to try and make sense of contrasting emotions after a largely excellent performance yielded no points and no goals.

Zaha, Sarr and no VAR (10.21)

WATFORD 0-0 PALACE: At the end of another eventful week in the world of Watford, Jon is joined by Colin, Mike and Jas who try and sum up the last tumultuous few days. The boys try to work out what new Head Coach Nigel Pearson has to do in order to kickstart the great escape, […]

Done by Dyche (10.19)

WATFORD 0-3 BURNLEY: Well. That wasn’t quite what we’d hoped for, was it?

Knife to a Gun Fight (10.17)

With two games (and two defeats) to discuss, Jon is joined by Jason, Mike and Colin – each in varying states of distress – to try and make sense of Watford’s increasingly thankless search for a win. As well as frantically searching for on-field positives, the boys discuss the battle of the badge and also […]

Drowning in Draws (10.16)

WATFORD 0-0 BOSCOMBE: Another draw against Bournemouth, another clean sheet, but yet another missed opportunity to kickstart the season. Jon, Mike, Jas and DCW reconvened after the latest stalemate with our old friends from the south coast to try and work out if this was a point gained or another two squandered. The new pod […]

So near yet so VAR (10.15)

SPURS 1-1 WATFORD: A much improved performance from Watford, while problems with VAR continue to leave Hornets’ fans confused and critical. This week Mike and Colin join Jon to discuss events at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where things could, and probably should, have been so much better. Find out if the boys think it’s a […]

Mixed Emotions (10.14)

WATFORD 0-0 SHEFF UNITED: This week, Mike and Colin have two very different reactions to the draw against the blades. Regular listeners will be able to guess who took a positive and who took a negative perspective of the game. We discuss where your current problems started to go wrong and why Watford fans are […]

Crisis Point? (10.13)

WOLVES 2-0 WATFORD A week on from the humiliation in Manchester, Mike and Colin talk through a trip up to the Black Country and, like all episodes of FTRE, tell their thoughts and feelings on life as a Watford fan.
