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.

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