'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dr Watford's 2008 Review - March

March, and a power cut in the Hornets home end leaves us in the dark ahead of a clash with Norwich. Bright spark Danny Shittu nets a goal but it really isn`t enough to light up a dull 1-1 encounter with the Canaries.

Tamas Priskin is sent on his way to PNE after turning down loan spells at Crewe and Southend insisting "he`s too good for Division 1 football". Boothroyd disagrees and won`t guarantee him first team footie.

Elsewhere Ellington, who declared his desire to play for er, Bosnia (WAG power?), had caught the eye of Derby, Parkes goes from a Hornet to a Barnet bee whilst most of the Premiership - including Liverpool, Newcastle and Man City - have scouts out to watch Scott Loach at Valley Parade.

A return of Adam Johnson was rumoured as was the signing of Rui Marques from Leeds yet nothing materialized, but it`s The People who have VitalWatford laughing so hard we wet ourselves, suggesting the Hornets were about to splash out £6m on Leroy Lita…

On the pitch and it was a month of draws before a mauling at the hands of some rampant Tigers. 0-0 stalemates with Bristol City and Stoke saw Darius Henderson miss 2 (yes 2) spot kicks that could have taken all the points and left our title contenders out of the promotion race…

It was no wonder then that Watford were named Wickes Community Club of the Year.

A 10 man Watford completely dominate Stoke but it ends goalless in the 'Rob Styles show`. Eustace sees red ('it wasn`t worth a yellow` say the Potters) and then gets an extra 2 game ban for not leaving in a 'timely manner` - last count was 23 seconds but as Boothroyd put it "there`s no common sense these days" at the FA.

Fans were given the chance to name the road that runs alongside the new East Stand and it becomes obvious that it was highly unlikely to Jordan Stewart Avenue after the left back slams the booboys and cites them as a reason why he won`t sign a new contract…

Moneygrabbers Back Passage anyone?

It`s water pistols at dawn down at Home Park after a hot tempered clash with Plymouth ends 1-1. Big Bob Oteng is accused of squirting water at an injured (and red carded) Peter Halmosi. Boothroyd cites racism. Nothing is black or white even after an FA enquiry.

Still, irish eyes are smiling for John Joe as O`Toole gets an U21 call up whilst Liam Henderson, Young Lewis (Ashley`s bruv) and Dale Bennett are doing it for the kids as they sign pro deals.

Watford are "out Watford-ed" by Hull City as the Hornets do down 4-l and Kabba sees red in the worst performance for many a year. Boothroyd gets no sunshine at the KC Stadium on his 3rd birthday at Vicarage Road.

Collins John starts in attack insisting there`s something at the club that makes him stir inside. He promises goals, goals goals…
