Towns of Two Halves extracts:
● “The Internet has changed the world, while the team Ken Furphy built (skipper Keith Eddy, goalkeeper Micky Walker, players as talented and charismatic as Barry Endean and Stewart Scullion) returned to the Third Division in 1972.”
● “The museum’s celebration of its town’s football club is easily the most gaudy room in the building – not only with Watford FC’s lurid yellow, but also such exhibits as a suit designed for Elton John to wear to the footie.”
● “Watford represents the remorseless passage of time for me. When I first went… the Vicarage Road terrace was open to the elements and there was a dog-track around the pitch. Now it’s a handsome Premier League stadium and they call it the Vic.”
