My formative years were spent in the town of Rickmansworth, close to a slightly bigger place called Watford. Of both, that’s the most interesting thing one can say. They were vanilla, plain flavoured places where one grew up but nothing else happened. It was here that I first followed football, with Watford being my chosen football club.
Nothing much happens to Watford FC too, or it didn’t until the nearly 100 years of it’s history had passed. The 80s were a marvellous decade for Watford, our yellow kit was almost fashionable.
And again, in the last 2 years, things have started to happen. Promotion, cup semi-finals, it’s all go. And yesterday we went to a semi-final. We lost of course, but it was a hell of a lot of fun.
