One Manager, One word…

Wednesday 11 July 2012 by

There it is then. He’s appeared in an official Watford club tie on TV. It can’t get any more official than that. Gianfranco Zola is Watford’s First Team Manager.

It’s obviously an interesting time to be a Watford supporter, so here at From the Rookery End, we have tried to guage the mood of fellow fans by asking them to sum up their current feelings in one word. We got a fantastic response (Sometimes more than one word, but these are exciting times – we forgive you!), and these are collated bellow. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section – we’d love to hear how you are feeling!


We have managed to get hold of Gianfranco Zola’s name card that was used at the official press conference (pictured above). We’ll be giving this away in a competition soon, so keep your eyes on www.fromtherookeryend.com and our Facebook page for details on how to win. Good luck!

Now, onto your one-word summaries:
