"Driving home"
By Simon Waldman

...driving home along the M6 after the FA Cup semi-final victory over Plymouth.....the fact that we were actually going to Wembley beginning to sink in.....car after car after car of rejoicing Hornets fans in convoy....then, suddenly, we were overtaken - quietly, almost stealthily - by a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.... and fluttering from the winged lady on the front of the bonnet: a scarf - a PERFECT scarf - of yellow and red and black.....WAS it Elton....???
