'No magic wand' for Watford - GT

'No magic wand' for Watford - GT

Watford took a big step towards bringing back the grand olden` days at Vicarage Road by announcing that Super Man[ager] Sir Graham Taylor has rejoined the board as a non executive director.

In a move that is bound to be wrapped up in a ball of Hornet hysteria, Sir Graham is part of a new 4-man board that seeks to recreate 'Old Watford` but GT insists "there is no magic wand".

Sir Graham masterminded the most successful era in the club`s history - packed with top flight success, Wembley and Europe during the late 70s-early 80s - but he had a few choice words of warning for the Vicarage Road faithful.

A delighted but cautious GT stated "…in the short term I do ask for a degree of patience from supporters until the new board has had time to settle in. I must stress to supporters there is no magic wand - either on or off the pitch…".

He added "In the meantime, the most important thing at any club is the team, and it is obvious that we have a relegation fight on our hands. It would be silly not to recognise that".

GT rejoins a board featuring former chairman Stuart Timperley and Salad Brothers Jimmy and Vince Russo and said of his new position in bringing back Old Watford - "Agreeing to come in the new role is not a decision I have taken lightly. I have have asked many, many questions and discussed matters at great length with other members of the board".

It`s good to have you back Graham. Next stop Elton?
