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

Watford in for a Stern talking to?

Stern John could finally become a Watford player…10 years after Hornets legend Graham Taylor tried (and failed) to lure the player to Vicarage Road.

Reports in the Trinidad & Tobago Express suggest that Aidy Boothroyd`s Watford lead the race to sign the Southampton striker but there is competition from unnamed club in Saudi Arabia and Hull City (of course).

With Phil Brown`s Tigers turning their attentions to £3m Marlon King, Watford might find the door opened up just a bit more in their favour at St Marys and even John is quoted as saying "I know there have been a few clubs showing interest".

It`s no surprise really. Having scored goals for fun at Forest, Coventry and last year for the Saints, John could be the answer to our front line problem but a goal scoring reputation will come with a hefty transfer fee and it`s unlikely the Hornets will be able to match Stern`s current wages…

But stranger things have happened.

Ive just reported on Saints Vital that he might be on his way to Watford.

Not sure about this one, seems unpopular at Soton and too Henderson-like.

Think he has made himself unpopular with his desire to 'look after himself'

Stern would be alright for us. Seeing as we only have First teamers Henddo & Priskin at the moment who can play upfront... He could want too high wages than we could offer. Let's see......
