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

New names in the Watford frame

Forget the usual suspects - a host of fresh, new and surprising names have been thrown into the ring as the speculation merri-go-round hits full speed ahead on the Watford managers job.

The Vicarage Road vacancy has attracted more than 50 candidates and there are a few choice pickings amongst the list.

But whilst the bookies have Hessenthaler, Wise, Gibbs and Mackay as the front runners there`s a few faces that are starting to make the VitalWatford boys sit up and say "um, interesting"!.

Paul Lambert - the current Colchester United boss - is linked with the Hornets hotseat in the The Daily Mail this morning. Andy Scott - the up and coming gaffer of recently promoted Brentford - has revealed that he is "aware that Watford have shown an interest" whilst Terry Burton continues to be tipped in various sources.

Elsewhere, and the tabloids reckon Alan Pardew is being interviewed as part of a 5 man shortlist whilst Gus Poyet`s name is now mentioned as scrapping it out with his ol` sparring partner, Dennis Wise, for the job.

Ok, so the odds reckon that it will be one of the well of the well documented former players but hey, with such an array of talent (and er, Alan Curbishley) in the frame it`s seems good sense that the Watford board will "take their time to find the right man".

I go away and leave you guys to man the shop, and we lose a manager, not to mention our players could start to leave. How careless. but in truth, i have had to bite my tounge, i phoned up the club last thursday morning before my trip and asked what the hell they were playing at, press office would only say, "expect an anoucement... Well like the rest of you, i am bitterly dissapointed in Rodgers, but then this football. although my first reaction was more than words could describe. I wish Reading Luck, purely because WFC get more money, but would i like to see Rodgers fall flat on his face? hell yes, would i like to see him suffer, Even better. So now lets look to the future, get on with appointing a man who may show more comitment and stabilize a club that is in turmoil.
