Graham Taylor RIP

Archives

pa-1425193_0“Graham Taylor deserves to be remembered as the football manager who enlivened the English game between 1977 and 1987 by taking Watford, a venerable but hitherto nondescript club, from the Fourth Division to the First, where they finished runners-up to the mightiest of Liverpool sides, and to the FA Cup final, all the while encouraged by an enthusiastic chairman, the football-loving pop singer Elton John. This was a feat commensurate with those of Brian Clough, who twice won the European Cup with Nottingham Forest, and Claudio Ranieri, who won the Premier League title with Leicester City last year.”

Guardian obituary.
