Sadler wonders Wat might have been

Sadler wonders Wat might have been

Watford outcast Mat Sadler still reckons "he made the right decision" when he left Birmingham and snubbed Wolves to join Watford last January….

…but the back in favour full back insists he does "look back sometimes and think what might have been".

Of course he would. Whilst the Midlands pair are the runaway Championship leaders playing expansive, exciting football, Sadler is languishing in the Watford wilderness at the wrong end of the table.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, ahead of the Hornets clash with his old club at St Andrews on Saturday, Sadler states "I`m glad I made the move now, I`ve seen a different side of life and I`m experiencing something new."

That 'something new' Mr Sadler is the unmistakeable stench of relegation into the 3rd tier of English football rather than an embarassement of top flight riches…

Let`s face it, Sadler - alongside John Eustace and Leigh Bromby - probably presumed they were Premiership bound when they joined with Watford 11 points clear at the top of the Championship last season.

And Mat, who was recalled to the Hornets starting 11 during the 3-2 defeat to Brum, does kinda hint at just that scenario (if you read between the lines).
The out of favour left back, who cost a whopping £750k, added "I made a decision at the time, and back then Watford were going for promotion and I joined a very good club, who still are a very good club".

"Of course you look back sometimes and think what might have been…"
.

Sadler is one of those who could well move on in January to ease the Hornets crippling wage bill and there are plenty of Championship clubs sniffing around for a bargain.
