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

Harley Joins

Former Chelsea and Fulham full-back-cum-midfielder Jon Harley has joined Watford Football Club.

The 28 year-old left footer has penned a two year deal at Vicarage Road having impressed on trial whilst in Austria.

Released by Burnley at the end of last season, Harley moved from Sheffield United whom he joined on loan from Fulham.

Prior to his move to Craven Cottage, the set-peice specialist was at Stamford Bridge where he collected England Youth honours and an F.A Cup before a 3.5million move across the captial.

Harley scored twice for Burnley against Watford in 2005/2006 in a comprehensive rout of the Hornets, one sizzling free kick and a spot kick contributing to his 12 career goals.

Speaking of his move to WD18, Harley was enthusiastic about Adrian Boothroyd:

'Since I've been here training has been brilliant. Aidy wants to play football the right way and the training has reflected that. It's mostly been ball work, but hard work at the same time.'

Good luck to Jon in his Watford career!

Let's hope he's a good signing. Can't be any worse than Bangura surely.

What's up with Bangura?

For me bangura is not a Championship player. He makes too many mistakes. He tends to lose the ball too easy. Don't get me wrong he's a nice guy who needs to find first team football week in week out. I just don't think it with Watford.

Ok, I see what you mean, he does give the ball away and he does give away a few too many fouls. He needs to be calmed and nurtured a bit.

Where will he slot in though?

Could go on the left wing ans move Jobi to the right with Smith up front if Hendo does leave?

Perhaps. Can't see him beating Sadler or McAnuff to a first team slot.

It all rest on if he's a yes man for Aidy.....
