report: Ten minutes in one of the blokes behind us announced that “this has got nil-nil written all over it”. This was irritating… partly because it felt like a spoiler, partly because he was so obviously right and the sudden realisation, much as it had been staring us in the face since kick-off, deflated enthusiasm.
Podcast:Jon and Jason are joined by Olly Wicken, author of Hornet Heaven, to talk about the match, but also the latest episode of Hornet Heaven, plus we put two objects in our list of Watford in 100 Objects.
report:Before kick-off, there was a minute’s silence to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster. I was very young indeed when it happened, but it still made a strong impression on me and, as an adult, the thought of a town losing a whole generation of children is beyond heartbreaking. The silence was observed impeccably and it was good to see both teams wearing black armbands.
