Spanish inquisition on Watford style

Spanish inquisition on Watford style

Norwich`s new La Liga import Juan Velasco reckons he`s 'never seen football played like it before', after being exposed to Watford`s direct style of 'sexy football` in Tuesday`s 1-1 draw. Arriba!

The bracing trip to Vicarage Road would certainly have been an eye opener to life in the English lower leagues for the cultured right back, who, with 280 games for a host of good-pedigree sides in the Spanish top division to his name, also has 4 international caps for Spain.

But Canaries chief Glenn Roeder reckons the February signing from Espanyol did pretty well - all things considering - with the Hornets physicality insisting 'He said to me after game that hadn`t come across in La Liga a Watford-type team because in Spain they tend to keep the ball on the ground a lot more.'

Roeder added 'He comes from La Liga where he`s played against some of the best players in the world so it`s a new experience for him and had to show all of that experience at times but he coped well'.

And there was the VitalWatford boys believing that the Hornets wouldn`t look out of place on the hallowed turf at the Bernabeu or using their full force of aerial bombardment at the Nou Camp.

In fact, we`d go as far to say that Leigh Bromby`s long throws towards the heads of Darius Henderson and Danny Shittu would indeed look as out of place in the Spanish league as, well, as out of place as Norwich City appearing alongside the likes of Athletico Madrid, Celta Vigo and Sevilla on a players CV in fact!

Bring it on amigos.

Is that the only reason he went to Norwich, then? Because of your average attendence?.. Makes sense i suppose. Tell you what Candid; why don't you keep him? We've got Llloyd Doyley warming the bench!
