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

Willo not fit to wear Watford shirt

Mike Williamson is indeed correct - he is unfit … not fit to wear the Watford shire that is. His antics over the last 48 hours - after seeing a transfer request turned down - seemingly have proved that.

Watford turned down a transfer request and an official bid of an alleged £2m for the centre half they saved from the footballing wilderness at Wycombe just 9 months ago but it appears that Williamson can`t do the club the decency of showing the respect and dignity you`d expect of a professional (yes Mike - 'professional`) footballer and just get on with things like a man…

Oh no, instead Williamson decided that he`d declare himself 'unfit to travel to Swansea` - ruling himself unavailable for selection - presumably with a bruised ego and itchiness in his fingers at the thought of a big fat signing on fee at Fratton Park!!!

Or maybe it was a strain in his neck from having his head turned by the big league despite being, what appears to be, a sulky Championship novice with jumped up aspirations of being a big time charlie ?

Selfish? Potentially. Unprofessional? Absolutely.

It might be revealed that Mike is in fact injured but we won`t hold our breath and even Malky didn't seem to think so.

Let`s not forget that Williamson trained without problem on Thursday and played a full 120 minutes at Leeds just 48 hours earlier…

Interestingly, Braveheart Watford boss, Malky Mackay simply said "anyone I want wearing a yellow jersey has to want to play for the club and to come out and give their all" - which kinda says it all really.

No-one is bigger than the club.

Here at VitalWatford, we say fine him heavily, remind of his 4 year contract, pack him off to the reserves and let him train with the Academy boys... just to be on the safe side.

From the language Malky is using it seems unlikely Williamson had a genuine injury. and the club are not attempting to smooth things over. So, fine him for sure but if he doesn't want to wear the shirt, get rid asap. Sell him if an acceptable offer comes in this weekend or farm him out on loan which will also generate some cash. Very disappointing but indicative of the way footballers behave and the mess we are in. Good point for the youngsters today.
