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

Malky builds no-nonsense bench

Beware the benches of fellow Championship rivals, a new look Watford backroom team - pumped up to the brim with testosterone, blood, guts, thunder and steel - is coming to a touchline near you soon!

If you thought the Hornet bully boy tactics under Aidy Boothroyd were brutal enough then you havn`t seen anything yet as Malky Mackay builds a bench you simply wouldn`t mess with (and Alec Chamberlain!).

If the braveheart spirit of tough talking scot Malky didn`t make you quiver in your fancy dan boots, well feast your eyes on his new right hand man, Sean Dyche - a firey red headed, red blooded hulk of a man with a bite far worse than his bark it tries to eat his own arm!

If his spell at Millwall has told him anything it`s that passion and pride counts for everything.

Then there`s right ol` Londonder David Kerslake, in as first team coach to add a bit of spice and a bit of cheeky wide boy action (that`s a full back reference in case you didn`t know).

Kerslake knocked out over 350 career games for the likes of Spurs, Leeds, Charlton, QPR and er, Swindon, before going into coaching at Northampton with Colin Calderwood - another straight talker VitalWatford wouldn`t like to meet in a dark alley.

Ol` David from the wrong side of the tracks in Stepney, London Town loyally followed the rock steady Scot to Forest…before loyalty following him out of the door at the City Ground when he was sacked.

Ah, it makes Boothroyds handbags with Fitz Hall all look a bit playground really doesn`t it. The shenanigans at Home Park pail into significant just a tad…

All we needed was Tony Coton to join as goalkeeping coach but sadly that job is retained by Lord Alec of Chamberlain whilst Martin Pert rejoins as peacemaker (sorry, we meant 'fitness coach`).

God help you all!

i have seen shaun dyche in person,he has got arms the size of tree trunks..really would not want to upset the man..looks like we might have to put with nathen ellington,hes got to prove him self no end..to my opinion, whats happening with john eustace he is another one we could do without..

I remember Dyche scaring the crap out of Roman Vega when Millwall came to the Vic. Vega was a bad player on mega wages, but i shaw he still needs therapy after their meet. As for Ellington, he will go, what you got think eldlive is that clubs are gonna leave it as close to the season start to sign players, as it keeps their wage bill down and money in their bank, as there is no real income coming in yet.

Its interesting to see you both make the point about Ellington - the club have obviously decided to run the story about 'Dukes Return' on the official site to keep him in the news - its does repeat though that thec club want shot!!!
