A few months ago I slated the ‘Watford Ultra’s’ idea on here – the group has since become an integral part of our home and away support.
If there’s one thing I’ve been quite scathing of this season then it’s the Yellow Order and after last night’s fine showing by Watford’s newest band of supporters I think I owe them an apology.
We at VitalWatford are not adverse to the odd error judgement or misplaced fact and we’d certainly like to think of ourselves as being accountable for our mistakes.
When I first got wind of the ‘Watford Ultras’ I thought I knew exactly what sort of ‘supporter’s group’ would be drummed up and I didn’t like it.
Knowing too that they could be found in the same corner of the Rookery as I and some idiots in the last season or two have sat I didn’t feel it would be a positive thing.
I was wrong.
The Yellow Order have been fantastic and last night was the pinacle of that. Non-stop support even when we went 1-0 down in such careless circumstances yet the support never waivered. Some brilliant new chants have been exercised this season by the Y.O and long may they continue.
Now if we can just get something out the Lower Rous!
