It was a long time ago now, Graham Taylor was manager and the side was packed with international players but it is of course part of the legend and the history of the club, which is kept very much alive in the town to this day. Not least by the Watford Museum where there is a display of memorabilia from the club. Such is the level of interest at this time the BT Sports channel have recently despatched a TV crew to the Museum to film some of the displays as part of their warm up to this year’s final. Look out for the programme which airs at 10:15 on Thursday (12th). But if you missed it here is a clip of film shot Wembley on the day all those years ago. See how many famous names you can spot as the teams file out on to the pitch.
Sadly for Watford they lost, going down 2-0 to Everton but controversy raged about at least one of the goals, which many Watford fans judged to have been the result of a foul on the goal keeper. John Barnes came close in the opening minutes for Watford and had he been on target who knows what the result may have been but that’s football.
