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

Watford target plays loyalty card

If you though the 'will he, won`t he` factor raged on just a little bit too long with Brendan Who?`s switch to Reading then sit tight for an even longer journey when it comes to Andy Hessenthaler.

The former Hornets engine room general and current manager of Dover Athletic told the local press that "of course he`d be interested" if the Watford board came knocking just 48 hours ago.

Now though, Hessenthaler reckons he`s told the 'souls` down at Dover that he`s "staying put" and that "all [his] thoughts are on Dover and the challenge that Conference South football will bring next season".

He even "assures everyone that I`m fully focused on Dover Athletic and next season". and his chairman reckons Hessy has confirmed "he`s happy" - or so the Kent Mercury are reporting.

Problem is though Andy, we`ve heard these cries of undying loyalty before - quite recently in fact - and still seen things develop.

Mind you Hessenthaler playing his loyalty card this early in the close season has had a marked effect on the bookies odds - he`s slipped from 4/7 on favourite to a 2-1 shout over night with Malky Mackay taking over the 'most likely to` reigns.
