Watford admit 'Black Zidane' mistake

Watford admit 'Black Zidane' mistake

Watford chief Aidy Boothroyd has revealed that dubbing Reliable Lloyd Doyley as a 'Black Zidane` was the worst thing he could have done after the full back lost form last season.

The Hornets gaffer offered up the illustrious tag after the 3-2 home win over Southampton when Doyley hit the top of the Actim index defenders list and notched up 4 assists... despite being uncomfortable on the ball.

Now it appears Boothroyd admits his bold comparison was a bit too far, stating "The worst thing I ever did was say that about Lloyd Doyley because after than he lost his form"

But don`t panic all you Doyley fans out there- the Watford gaffer insists that Reliable Lloyd has "come back good this year".

He told the local hacks at the Watford Observer "…in the first half of last season Lloyd was terrific on the ball and this season, he`s started the same way so we`ve got to make sure now that we maintain that"

Well that`s ok then.

Now Aidy, just make sure you don`t suggest to striker Tamas Priskin that he`s the Hungarian Ibrahamovic!!!!

What`s that? Oh, you haven`t, have you???

he wasn't at fault for either - JDM had a mere on Saturday and LD ended up playing CB much of the game as cover...what Captain America did for the Earnshaw goal I have no idea!!!

Aidy needs to learn the lesson to be careful in what he says and not to over-hype his own players. Be positive yes but Zidane? I don't think so I've never seen Lloyd head-butt anuone!

He miss controlled a ball that went on to Martin who scored a great goal and he did not do the follow up marking on the player that scored the goal from the free kick, so if thats not his fault.
