Highly recommended for all Watford fabs

I found out about the podcast just before the Cup Final from the mention in BHappy. Foolishly, I listened to the Cup Final specials while driving down to Wembley from Cheshire. It's difficult to drive when you're crying.

Since, then I've been working my way back ftom the start. The mixture of humour and pathos exactly describes what it has meant to be a football fan of a small team who could only dream of reaching Division 2 when I started supporting them in 1967.

Great writing and marvelous narration that has also made me want to learn more about the early history of the club.
