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.
