'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The future's orange for Watford boss

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd reckons his main Championship rivals are all like oranges - and we`re not just talking about the infamous tangerines of Blackpool either!

Speaking to the Hornet`s official club site, the Watford gaffer - with a zest for life - said of the main promotion contenders "I`ve always believed at this stage of the season that you get to see people like oranges - the tighter you squeeze them some of them tend to capitulate".

Watford, Charlton and Stoke have all been guilty of slipping up on the odd banana skin or two in recent weeks when wins have been important and few will argue that there are 'pressing' times ahead for all the promotion condenters in they want to 'peel' away in glory!

But it`s from all things yellow to all things citrus it seems then at Vicarage Road this week - lets just hope that Boothroyd`s boys don`t end up looking like a bunch of lemons at Ashton Gate tonight.

Peachy article, Dr. Watford. Did he really say that? Plum tie for your boys tonight though, is Nathan Melon-ton playing? And To-Mart-o Poom? What a pear!

Melon-ton just about sums up his recent performances...
