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.

Following from a far (9.33)

NEWCASTLE 0-2 WATFORD As Watford head up to Tyneside, the FTRE team did not follow. This podcast is the story of trying to follow a game, not get worked up and fitting in life duties at the same time. Jon, Mike, Colin and Jordi recorded how their Saturday afternoon went keeping on top of a […]

A Legend, a Hero and the Great (9.32)

WATFORD 0-0 BURNLEY This was no where near a game to be remembered, but Saturday at Vicarage Road was a day to remember. Mike, Jason and Colin talk through the game, trying to find positives, but we discuss the Tom Sawyer and Graham Taylor tributes, but particually Duncan Welbourne, who died this week aged 78. […]

To Palace. At the Double (9.31)

CRYSTAL PALACE 1-2 WATFORD On this week’s pod, Mike, Colin and Kieran head to Selhurst Park to talk about the delightful win against the Eagles.

Winning in Woking (9.28)

WOKING 0-2 WATFORD With 111 places and 5 tiers of football between them, the Watford v Woking game turned out exactly how everyone expected… a Watford win.

Barmy in Boscombe (9.27)

BOURNEMOUTH 3-3 WATFORD Colin has another one of our away day diaries as he heads down to Boscombe to see the Hornets take on Bournemouth. He talks us through the game, especially the bonkers first half, and discusses if we really have a rivaliry with the Cherries.

Geordie Bore (9.26)

WATFORD 1-1 NEWCASTLE Here we are, the end of 2018. It started off sheepishly with Marco Silva in charge (he lasted 21 days) and even with a average performance against Newcastle, it;s been a good year. Mke, Jason and Jon gather after the 1-1 draw against the Toon Army to discuss it and award the […]

Undone by Hazard (9.25)

WATFORD 1-2 CHELSEA The night after Christmas, Jon, Jason, Mike and Colin talk through a disappointing defeat, but not in a normal Watford way, and they look back on the first half of the season and how the next half might go!

Three Points for Christmas (9.24)

WEST HAM 0-2 WATFORD Half away day diary, half at home chat (it was a phone battery problem), Mike, Jon and Kieran talk through a performance that MOTD didn’t do justice and how the rest of the Christmas fixtures might turn out.

Quina-ssential (9.23)

WATFORD 3-2 CARDIFF In a dominant performance, that threaten to be a capitulation by the end, the Hornets got their first win in a wee while. Jon, Mike and Colin chat about how the performance shows how far the hornets have come and how exciting we can really be (and we don’t dwell on the […]

More than Happy with Javi (9.22)

EVERTON 2-2 WATFORD One of those games where the result doesn’t match the feeling. Jon and Jason head to the pub to watch the game, Mike and Colin sending int their thoughts as the game progressed. A great rollercoaster of a match, which we hope can start the revival as we head into Christmas. YOU […]
