Watford under the weather - Aidy

Last night`s 2-1 loss to Plymouth may have highlighted the 'summer of discontent` at Vicarage Road but it is definitely starting to give Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd the winter blues.

After watching a dogged (but limited) Plymouth ride out the storm from his Hornet troops in the last 15 minutes to inflict Watford`s first defeat at home, Boothroyd admitted "when it rains, it pours".

Despite looking a shadow of the team that beat Ipswich, the Hornets boss reckoned his side "dominated the whole game but lost to two goals against the run of play" and will "play a lot worse than that and win to be perfectly honest".

But hamstring injuries to Tamas Priskin and Reliable Lloyd Doyley put a further dampener on a bleak night in Hertfordshire.

Boothroyd told the awaiting press "When it rains, it pours. We`ve had a couple of hamstring strains and because of that we`re light."

And the Hornets couldn`t hide his overcast mood, stating "If you were to say we are in for a long, hard winter I would have to get my coat and agree with you".

Better make it a thick one, Aidy.

Aidy says he is gonna see Chaiman Mao to get loan players in, should be interesting to see the results from that!

What is the limit on the number of players in on loan at any one time? (we already have one in Rasiak?)
