After weeks of being blasted by the opposition fans and coaching teams alike over the pretty poor state of the Vicarage Road playing surface, Watford have admitted that the pitch needs improving!
Both Swansea and Forest have been ever so quick to raise questions over the quality of the Hornets home nest in recent weeks (lest we forget that the Tricky Trees angry little Billy Davies even stated 'because of the surface we knew there would be no football played' - whilst Sheffield Wednesday insisted, very diplomatically, that it didn`t help proceedings.
Now it appears the new Watford have recognized the need to sort out the pitch - that has been battered and bruised by staging rugby union games week in week out - in order to assist Brendan Rodgers passing game philosophies.
The club`s very likeable CEO, Julian Winter told fans "…we need to work with Saracens to improve the pitch. Whatever the deal might be in the future we need to factor in the pitch so Brendan has a better playing surface".
And Rodgers too was quick to jump in and make a pitch perfect for passing a priority at the club, insisting "Long term for me we need to improve it for footballing reasons…"
Brendan also wanted a pitch "supporters could be proud of" but Julian Winter has reiterated that "it would be ridiculous to say we`d have a perfect playing surface".
No surprise there then given that the revenue from the tenure of Saracens at Vicarage Road probably adds a considerable amount to the club coffers - even if it does come at a price to the grass.
