One of the everyday struggles brought up in the video is not being able to play or watch football and, as Thomas explains, that’s where the Watford kit comes in.
“Me and my brother have been missing football a lot recently and one of our main complaints is that we can’t go and play football,” said Thomas, who proudly donned his replica kit during the song. “I thought it would be nice if I wore the football shirt to display what I was trying to get across in the lyrics. We’re really big fans of Watford. The kit was my Doucouré top from last season – we basically update our kit every two years!”
The Marsh family live in Kent, with Ben and Danielle both working at Kent University, meaning it’s quite the round trip for the four season-ticket holders in the household. But their deep-rooted connection to the club stems from Ben’s father, who used to go to even greater lengths to watch the team under Graham Taylor.
“My dad really has the original Watford connection because he used to live in Amersham,” explained Ben. “Since I was a kid, we used to live in Devon, and I can’t believe we did this now, but we did five-hour round trips to see Luther and co back in the early 80s. I have vague memories of long journeys in the car, and we had seats right next to the tunnel where the players came out. To this day I still get goose bumps when I hear Z Cars.
