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

Blades still trying to sell Sheffield to Smithy

Look, someone should just tell the PR machine at Sheffield Utd that Tommy Smith simply can`t be bothered to haul his family 150 miles up the M1 and sign on for anything less than an alleged £18k a week…

…and they should really give up trying to convince him otherwise.

Smithy has allegedly turned his back on the now-annual summer migration from Hertfordshire to the bright lights of, er, South Yorkshire for 'family reasons` but those pesky Blades simply refuse to take it on the chin and move on ….

On the eve of the Hornets trip to face United, the Bramall Lane persuaders are back on the 'Tommy Smith would love it here` bandwagon and have come out flag waving and whistle happy trying to force him into a rethink…

The dog-earred sports hacks at the Sheffield Telegraph even quoted that United will 'roll back the welcome mat to Tommy Smith` before letting Bromby blush with praise for the Hornets wideman.

Leigh Bromby is shamelessly still trying to sell the delights of Bramall Lane to Smudger through the Sheffield Telegraph stating "He`d definitely fit in here…If there is still time, I`d love to see Tommy here".

The poor mans Rory Delap added "Tommy's a fantastic player who would be a great addition to our squad…He has a great work ethic besides being a talented player. I didn`t realise how good he was until I played with him".

Apparently the Sheffield Telegraph reckon Bromby 'hopes Smith has a change of heart about rejecting the Blades advances`….

Here at VitalWatford Towers, we really not surprised that Smudger rejected the advances with Bromby so keen to 'play with him` again!

Still, we can`t see it happening now with Reading and the Not So Super Hoops of QPR allegedly ready to offer Tommy a route out closer to home (if they can match the Hornets asking price of £1.5m+)

But you can`t blame a club for trying.
