Anuff now! Watford rebuff rumours

Watford have been super quick to distance themselves from speculation in The Sun linking players with moves away from Vicarage Road.

Jobi McAnuff - an apparent loan target for former club Crystal Palace - reckons it`s all smoke without fire, telling the South London Press "I`ve just seen the story in the paper and it`s complete news to me…I don`t expect to be leaving the club".

And now Hornets chief Aidy Boothroyd has hit back at the tabloid speculation insisting "Obviously the deadline`s gone and there`s not too much to write about"

High earners Mart Poom and Damien Francis have both been linked to loan moves to Championship rivals this morning but Boothroyd remains adamant "there`s nothing in it".

He told the Watford Observer "Nobody`s made contact with me - There`s no point in other people having them on loan if we can use them".

So, that`s that then…

Aidy has said his bit, but nothing from the Board and the rumours will continue until the Board are replaced or have been able to put some additional financing in place beyond January. Everyone in football knows we have serious cash problems, but right now Aidy and the boys are diverting attention away from the board with good performances on the field. However, this will actually give the Board a problem if it continues and we are somehow still in the running come the end of December. Would they actually be prepared to disassemble a Promotion winning team and pull the rug from under Aidy? I'm afraid I already know the answer and it's all because of what they allowed to happen last year. In the meantime, any serious offers to take senior players out on loan (for cash in and to reduce our wage bill) will be considered I'm sure and Aidy will be left high & dry to somehow explain it away. Whether anything comes of it or not, it is very unsettling and will not help Aidy maintain the team spirit and good start to the season.
