A phone call from the club’s top appearance maker and goal scorer isn’t something you expect every day, and some supporters didn’t quite believe their luck at first.
“Luther called me – it really surprised me as he didn't say who he was initially and I certainly wasn't expecting a call from him!” said Peter, 68. “I was astounded and I didn't believe it for a few minutes. We had a good chat about past games. We spoke for about half an hour about what's going on, the outcome, football and all sorts of things, really. It was great to talk about old times.”
Margaret, 86, said: “Luther Blissett called, and I thought it was one of the family mucking about! My husband David was so pleased to speak to him and they had a good chat. It was really nice of him. Rita called, which was so nice of her. Watford have been so good to us. They have looked after us so well. I hope to see everyone soon.”
