Hess to give Watford his Dover soul?

Hess to give Watford his Dover soul?

Watford legend and current boss of Blue Square South outfit Dover Athletic, Andy Hessenthaler, has been installed as favourite to fill the managers vacancy at Vicarage Road.

Hess, who played 217 times for the Hornets during the tough 90s after being signed from Dagenham, has leapfrogged Malky Mackay, Dennis Wise and Nigel Gibbs in the running and insists "of course [I`d] be interested" if Watford came knocking.

In fact, some bookies are so confident that the legendary Gillingham midfielder will take the reigns at Watford that they have suspended taking bets on his appointment.

He`s a staggering 4/7 on with one high street bookmaker which is an unbelieveable price given Dover reckon they`ve not heard anything from the Hornets.

A spokesman told the W`Observer "There has not been any sort of approach to Dover or Andy, which they wouldn`t be allowed to do because he is contracted to us".

Hessenthaler recently got Dover promoted to the Blue Square South on a shoestring, punched above his weight for years in the managers seat at Gillingham and yes, he is the candidate that VitalWatford would like to see in the seat.

However, here at VitalWatford Towers, we ruffled the feathers of the Dover chairman when we suggested that Hessenthaler should be in the running to replace Aidy Boothroyd 7 months ago, so we shall remain impartial for the time being…

Go Hessy!

Hmmm eand he could be a cheap option as a midfielder to replace Cork, O'Toole, Williamson and Eustace - no doubt those 54 year old legs could still cut it as a player manager (not to the Russo's - this a tongue in cheek joke ... though he'd do more running that Ellington).
