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.

2018-19 Top 10 of the Season (9.53)

WATFORD 1-4 WEST HAM Not the result you want, but let’s hope it’s a bad dress rehearsal before opening night. Jon, Colin, DCW and Mike gather to talk through (but not for long) the West Ham lose, and then look back on this season by counting down the FTRE Top 10 of the Season. COME […]

Not the finishing article (9.52)

CHELSEA 3-0 WATFORD Colin and Jon gather to discuss a loss against a top 6 side that could have been very different – something that we’ve said a few times this season. With the return of Deeney and Chalobah to the starting line up, how did the hornets fair and who is showing their stripes […]

So Long to 7th (9.51)

WATFORD 1-2 WOLVES Or is that 2-1 to Watford in terms of results this season. In an indifferent game of football, Watford didn’t show their, what we’ve come accustomed to, fight till the death. Jon, Jordi and Mike talk through the game and the subs that seemed to cause a step back. They also discuss […]

Strangely Satisfying (9.50)

WATFORD 1-1 SOUTHAMPTON With a Southampton goal after 7 seconds, tonight’s game was incredibly frustrating and only saved with about 7 seconds to go. Jon, Jason and Mike met up for a short review of the game but aren’t as down as you might think. COME ON YOU ORNS!

3 points in 2nd gear (9.49)

HUDDERSFIELD 1-2 WATFORD They say it’s cold up north, but it was a sunny sunny day on Saturday. Jon, Mike, Jason and Kieran headed up to the John Smiths stadium – which doesn’t sell John Smiths – for the sort of game you have to win, even if it isn’t done in the way you […]

TFTV – Northern Ireland (9.48)

TALES FROM THE VICARAGE LIVE At another wonderfully Watford evening, Jon, Mike and Jordi, went back stage at the latest Tales from The Vicarage live event, a Northern Ireland special. They were lucky enough to talk to the four former Watford, and Northern Ireland international, players about their time at Vicarage Road. They include, get […]

Histrionics (9.47)

WATFORD 0-1 ARSENAL 80 minutes with only 10 men and Arsenal weren’t really Arsenal, not like you expect. Jon, Jason and Mike gather after the game to discuss a game that was annoying yet made you feel proud of the team!

Wonderful Wembley (9.46)

WATFORD 3-2 WOLVES There are moments, as a football fan, that you will never forget and moments. And Watford’s win over Wolves, in the FA Cup Semi Final, is the sort of game that will live long in the memory. This podcast is our story, from around the world, and our reaction to the win. […]

4Ward to Wembley (9.45)

WATFORD 4-1 FULHAM That’s the result you want before an FA Cup final, but was it the performance? Jon, Jason, DCW and Colin talk through the game that saw Fulham relegated, two substitutions, a goal to make you go WOOAHHH and a performance from Andre Gray that is going to give Javi some big headaches […]

The Best Team Lost (9.44)

MANCHESTER UNITED 2-1 WATFORD Another of our away day podcasts, this time Colin is off to Old Trafford. On his trip he talks to other fans about how football has developed relationships with their family and, to celebrate the latest edition of Hornet Heaven, if it’s okay for grown men to wear replica shirts or […]
