The first in a series of long-form audio interviews with people who made an impact for Watford on or off the pitch.

I've interviewed a lot of Watford players over the years but those interviews have always been for written projects. An interview that's intended for an audience to listen to is a completely different thing.

I've teamed up with the excellent From the Rookery End podcast to contribute to a series called Catching Up With...

Who better to be the first guest than a one-club man who can justifiably claim the title Mr Watford – not that he'd dream of doing so because he's too modest?

Earlier this year I met Nigel Gibbs at the Grove hotel where we chatted over coffee about the highs and lows of his Watford career, which spanned two decades and some incredible highs which sandwiched a period of decline for the club in the 1990s.

It's more a conversation than an interview and I hope you enjoy it.
