To celebrate a decade of making From The Rookery End, we decided to produce a week of special podcasts, looking back on all that has gone on and speaking to significant people who have graced Vicarage Road.
Day 1: The Top 10 Countdown of the last 10 seasons
Jon. Jason and Mike, the original trio, take a trip down memory lane and rank the ten Watford FC seasons we’ve seen while podcasting.
Day 2: Youth and Old Age – Nick Cox and Barry from Watford
We had a great chat with Nick Cox about his time with the Academy at Watford FC, looking back on why it was such an enjoyable time, despite some challenging circumstances. Nick is always worth a listen so you know what to do.
And then a complete change of pace and direction we also talk to the legendary Barry from Watford, who shares his thoughts on the red/black shorts debate, describes Watford FC as a biscuit and lets us know if he’s celebrated a Hornets win in the town centre pond.
Day 3: Super Danny Graham
As you might expect, Daniel Anthony William Graham was a joy to speak to and it was great to talk through his eventful, but short career at Watford and how life had been since he left Vicarage Road.
Day 4: The Best of FTRE
It had to happen at some point. We’ve been making podcasts for the last 10 years, published over 300 of them and this is our first clips show. You know, like the ones they always do on American Sitcoms.
This episode shows off just a little bit of what we have done as a podcast and shows off how its really a podcast about staying sane, celebrating triumphs and chatting to footballers.
This is 10 years of podcasting in about an hour.
Day 5: Troy Deeney – An Interview with Captain Sensible
In the ten years of doing From the Rookery End, Troy Deeney has been a name synonymous with our beloved Watford FC. It’s been five years since we last spoke in depth to Troy, where he memorably joined us for dinner a few weeks before promotion was secured.
We thought it was high time we caught up with the skipper again, and he kindly joined us to talk about how life has changed since those days in the Championship – including how he has changed not just as a player, but as a man.
He’s Watford’s number nine.
He’s a Watford legend.
He’s Troy Deeney.
