Less than 18 months ago, Watford fought tooth and nail to keep midfielder Al Bangura in the country now the Sierra Leone midfielder hasn`t even managed to keep hold of his squad number…
…and certainly doesn`t board the flight for a spot of sun, sea and settling in of Scott Severin at the Spanish training camp.
Bang Bang, who was dispatched out on loan to Brighton Hove Albion at the end of last season, is the only high profile casualty in the Hornets new squad number list for the 2009-2010 season being granted no shirt whatsoever…
…and the snub is even more alarming given Nathan Ellington has been handed a number (albeit no# 25).
And to add a little extra salt to the already gaping wounds, Bangura`s original number 20 shirt is left vacant so we can all but assume that Al is on his way out of Hertfordshire.
The Home Office wanted to deport him and now Watford have taken the shirt off his back… typical!!!
Elsewhere, and Jure Travner might only have been a Hornet for a mere matter of 72 hours but that`s been long enough for him to nick the number 3 shirt from right under Mat Sadler`s nose - who gets relegated to the cheap seats with the rest of the high earners in the mid 20s.
There`s also plenty of speculation after the Hornets decided to leave the traditional Number 5 shirt vacant, with some fans suggesting a new arrival could be imminent.
Here`s hoping Mike Williamson has '24` down as his lucky number (else the rumours of a move to Birmingham or even, heaven forfid, that Royal shower in Berkshire might just get a bit stronger).
Still, Smithy`s in at 8 and Super Tam gets the all important '9` jersey so there`s still hope.
