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.

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.
