LATEST EPISODE: A Season to Savour?

Two wins, a defeat, a draw and the standard controversy surrounding an away game at Bournemouth. As always, there is plenty to talk about in the new episode of From the Rookery End. As well as in interview with Lionel Birnie (creator of the "Tales from The Vicarage" series of books) the boys discuss the fantastic wins against Swansea and Newcastle, give Crystal Palace credit and bemoan Bournemouth. Again. Also up for discussion is the performance of Quique Sánchez Flores, the goals scored situation, and a three point plan for continued Premier League success. It's the International break, so fill the Watford void with the brand new From the Rookery End. You 'Orns!

WFC in 100 Objects - #14 - Elton John Album "Single Man"

In our search for 100 Objects that define Watford Football Club we expected to put in a few Elton John related items. Our first Elton items was suggested by Gary Coster he emailed us:

Hi Guys

Don't know if you've got this but Elton John's 1978 album "A Single Man" should be in the Watford in 100 Objects list. The team do backing vocals on the song "Georgia" A classic! It was featured on "The Big Match" with Elton praising right back John Stirk. Stirk and Keith Pritchett were on my paper round when I was a kid!


Gary Coster

It wasn't one of Elton's biggest hits, so if it doesn't ring a bell then below is the video of Elton singing with the players back in 1978. Listen out for the wonderful harmonies from the Watford players! 

We only made one FA Cup final and we never had a cup final song. So this is as close as we have got so far! Thanks to Gary for emailing in the suggestion and if you have any other Elton John related Watford items we could put in the list then please email them in -
