Aidy of the Rovers?

Aidy of the Rovers?

Hardly a ring to it, but Watford gaffer Adrian Boothroyd is allegedly now on the shortlist, lined up by the Blackburn board, to replace Mark Hughes in the Ewood Park hotseat.

The source of these rumours? The Times, which, unerringly, is the most reliable source for Watford news statistically - not wishing to put a hoodoo on Boothroyd's future, but there you go.

Mark 'Sparky' Hughes, former Welsh international boss and Red Devil of course left Lancashire yesterday to become a Citizen in the Manchester rain and now 37 year-old Boothroyd is cited alongside Alan Shearer and Sam Allardyce as the front runners to replace him.

With Blackburn playing a similar style of football to the Hornets and their, 'up and at em' attitude, it might be the perfect move for Adrian (who has split the Watford fans over whether his future remains at Vicarage Road)!

Plus he'd finally get his hands on long standing striker target Jason Roberts!

How would you feel about losing him? You did seem to go a bit stale in the second half of last season. Maybe a change would be good.

Rovers are surely going to want someone a little more high profile. No disrespect to Mr Boothroyd, but he is not what you would call high profile.

True, but then he has more experience than the fans favourite Mr Shearer. Either way, I'm not bothered, his decisions are baffling, 50% signings useless and tactics non-existant. I doubt he will go though, just reporting the news...
