Right Royal test of Rodgers loyalty

Right Royal test of Rodgers loyalty

A nice lazy piece of journalism to report courtesy of the News of the World - that sadly is spreading like wild fire across the interweb at the speed of light.

Damn those Sunday paper sports desks…

The lethargic sports hacks down at the NOTW have taken a break from running endless monotonous kiss and tells of C-listers that noone really cares about to 'report` that Brendan Rodgers is on his way to manage Reading in the summer!!!!

Shock, horror… Hardly an exclusive though is it? The 'story` broke about 6 weeks ago when another lazy journo put two and two together and got a right royal '5` - what with Rodgers being a Reading old boy and all that tosh.

Even Rodgers himself has already distanced himself from any speculation that he was set to replace Steve Coppell, insisting "maybe because I`ve been there [Reading] for a long time and there`s maybe that sort of link"….

…and that was 3 weeks ago, at the same point that the Hornets gaffer insisted he "loves everything about Watford".

We admit that loyalty is indeed a dirty word in football these days it seems but from what we`ve seen and heard from the gaffer in recent weeks, here at VitalWatford we are convinced he certainly ain`t no Steve Bruce.

Still we`ll prepare for the disappointment of him jumping ship just in case.

Brendan for Reading? Yes it's a possible but I'd have thought they'd want him to gain more experience first - especially if they're in the Premier League. Anyway I sincerely hope it doesn't hapen a I like what he's doing at the Vic. On another issue, I simly cannot believe how Kightly of Wolves (37 games & 8 goals) has got in the PFA Championship side ahead of Tommy Smith (42 Games & 17 goals). I know he played for the Champions etc, but Tommy's performance in a struggling side has been outstanding. Let's hope we can enjoy watching him at the Vic again next season....

On the Kightly issue - I have to agree really. Was quite bemused by a host of the PFA announcements - Look at League 2 for instance - how can you have noone from the Champions Brentford? Westwood the best keeper in the league - never.
