    I really enjoyed the Trevor Senior interview. He seems like a genuinely lovely bloke who simply wasn't good enough. I'd shake his hand if I saw him after reading that. Also interesting to read Bassett's side of the story

    A new Watford Legends interview is now live on the site.

    A man who graduated from the youth team, playing and scoring for the first team in the top division and Europe, and later returning to join the coaching staff.

    The old stuff is interesting but any chance of any more recent players being interviewed? The old incarnation struck a good balance.

    Yes of course.

    There's probably more of an 80s era theme at the moment with the Enjoy the Game interviews appearing each week and there's more of them to come on Monday. And I'd honestly like to get the 84 Cup Final and two Play Off winning teams completely covered (although I concede a couple of the 84 Cup Final team will be very challenging to get hold of!)

    In truth, there is no planned order of when the main interviews appear, simply because it comes down to if and when the players respond and then when we can get an interview scheduled. For example of the three I've done, Filippo Galli and Jimmy Gilligan responded within 48 hours and we got the interviews completed within a week, Jay DeMerit took a bit longer as you can read from his interview, he's very busy. I've got quite a few "yes" responses, but then it can take some time and effort to get the interview sorted...I'm sure I'm not high on their list of priorities!

    Of course, if there's any player that anyone particularly wants me to interview, please let me know (and I've already had someone ask for Almen Abdi!)

    I read the Dave Bassett one the other day - fascinating stuff, Any fan who was around during that time must check it out to hear his side of the story. Didn't realise that him and Oliver Phillips didn't get on at all. Some bits I agreed with, some not so much. Have a read and see what you think if you haven't already done so.

    Looking back I was pretty happy when I heard he was the new manager. GT wasn't going to stay forever and to replace him we'd got this young successful guy who wasn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers, wasn't afraid to go direct, had the energy to reinvigorate. Life would always be tough without JB but as soon as he axed the backroom staff, dropped Bardsley, sold Hill (who was highly sought after and had literally only just joined) , brought in Morris and Senior, my view changed very very quickly. The man was clearly an idiot. Nothing he has said or done since will change that view despite his subsequent success at Sheff Utd.

    The Ellington one is important as I really need to know that he is a long, long, long way away from this club.

    The players I'd most like to hear from are Almen Abdi, Almen Abdi and Almen Abdi.

    Would also be interesting to know what Richard Johnson is up to these days. Probably impossible to track down I imagine.

    I can't believe that, at the time, you were disappointed in Watford signing Trevor Senior. He'd scored an absolute avalanche of goals for Reading, so he was bound to bang in loads for us. Oh...
  11. According to his LinkedIn profile, he is Recruitment Manager for the Finance Division of DreamSearch Ltd - somewhere in deepest Essex.

    Would love to hear from Umaru Bangura, Junior, and Juanfran.

    Richard is also interviewed on the pitch before every home game...I think he does work in the executive boxes.

    A new interview is now live on the site. A popular former youth trainee who you want in your team if you want to kill a few minutes at the end of a game.

    Also @WatfordTalk - one of your requested interviews is on its way...

    How do i find the Bardsley one ? I pick players then 80s...but he's not there ? Is there a main menu somewhere where you can see the names listed rather than scrolling past every player each time ?

    When (if) you "do" Will Hughes can I get you to task him about futsal as I've just read in the latest WSC that that's his background?

    Got to wait for him to leave first...hopefully that won't be for a while yet!

    There's a new interview going live early next week.

    A new interview is now live. A striker with a one in three goalscoring record who our beloved former owner cashed in on!

    A new interview is now live...a player who spent about 12 years at the club from a young age, but ended up becoming pretty disillusioned with the professional game.

    The first interview of the new season is now live....arguably the finest player ever to play for the club (and no it's not Forestieri)
