Scientists claim that Monday was the most depressing day of the year, (‘Blue Monday’ is the third
Monday in January) there is good news for Watford supporters as the latest edition of the fans
podcast ‘From the Rookery End’ is now available for download and will lift you out of the depth of depression.

The podcast also features an interview with Hornets striker Chris Iwelumo, a song for new singing
