'Curb' your enthusiasm Malky
Watford`s caretaker boss Malky Mackay wants a shot at the Hornets hotseat on a permanent basis - despite being pretty damn rubbish in his current role of first team defensive coach.
VitalWatford were stunned yesterday when the short sighted Hornets board announced the former Celtic, Norwich and W`Ham legend Mackay as the interim solution to the vacant managers job.
In truth, Malky is a legend in the lower leagues but he really should have been shown the door along with all the other hangers-on in the cast of thousands that was Aidy Boothoryd`s backroom staff.
So it was with a guffaff then that we saw Malky confirm he`d "like to be involved in the shake-up" when the shortlist was drawn up to be new Hornets boss.
The bookies don`t see it though…Mackay isn`t even on their radar. Former Hammer Alan Curbishley is installed as 3-1 favourite to get the job in WD18 - although that looks a short price given he wouldn`t tolerate being a 'yes man` in the Premier League so he`s hardly likely to want to be a 'yes man` in the Championship.
Former Hornet and current Millwall boss Kenny Jacket is the other front runner at a widely available 4-1 alongside out of work John Ward (sacked from Carlisle just minutes before Boothroyd got the shove).
