Go-go Jacko

Go-go Jacko

Though he won't go down as the greatest Hornet ever, Matt Jackson will be a loss to the professional game.

The former Everton, Wigan and Norwich centre half has today retired at the age of 36 after some 17 years in the game. Jackson also won an F.A Cup Winners Medal whilst on the books at Everton.

His time at Watford was short, and interrupted by a loan spell at Blackpool before he'd even made his Hornets league debut, but on his return the veteran was a solid addition for 8 games. At the end of the season, Jackson was amongst a party of 8 told they had no future in WD18, since then there have been no takers and Jackson has opted for an early retirement.

Good luck in the future Matt!

£10k a week for 52 weeks + a 6 figure retirement settlement - and for what? A handful of games on weary legs that looked like they had gone years ago...Another blindin' Boothroyd signing!!!!

Well Dcotor you're right about Jackson for sure, and there's been a few others that didn't work out (Poom, Ashikodi, Ellington, Kabba etc, etc), But what about that first season when he built an entire side on the proceeds of the sale of Helguson? They weren't all bad buys were they? Marlon King - sold for profit of around 3.5 M, Hendo profit of 1.5M, *Shittu profit of 500k, Spring c 100k, Carlisle - c 150k, Mackay great in promotion season, plus the loan deals for Foster & Johnson and the re-signing of Tommy Smith for 500k - got to be worth £2m now. It's all too easy to criticise Aidy right now -Give the man a break and get behind the team. God knows they need it..... Come on You Golden Boys!
