Watford ready to go for Scow?

Watford are being linked to a move for Crystal Palace targetman >(and poor mans Hendo?) James Scowcroft…though the suggested £500k asking price seems a bit steep!

The dog eared hacks down on the sports desk at The Sun have hinted that the Hornets are in a race with Preston and Cardiff City for the signature of the Eagles journeyman striker.

But surely the former Ipswich, Leicester and Coventry frontman won`t suit Aidy Boothroyd`s preference for a new passing game?

Scowcroft, who has played as part of a 3 man front line at Selhurst Park, has netted 14 times in 63 starts for Palace.

Well past his sell-by date and hope this is just paper talk. 1/2 Million is Crazy money which we don't have, apparently. Would prefer to stick with existing strikers than bring him in.

Burnley may not be giants, but I think that we have to re-evaluate where we are in the pecking order of the Championship. After Burnley that's for sure. Seeing as they just spent £1.25 million on Eagles and we are struggling to get a 10th of that to buy La Bamba.
