Aidy's O'Tooled up for U's job

Aidy's O'Tooled up for U's job

That Aidy Boothroyd doesn`t muck around does he…

Just literally minutes after being announced as the new gaffer at Colchester United, he rides back into Watford and swipes John Joe O`Toole on loan.

The free scoring, shaggy haired Republic U21 international, who priced himself out of a move to Sheffield United in the summer, is reunited with the man who gave him his big Championship break until December 31st.

Hmmm, and according to the Hornets 'fficial site, apparently that the loan deal went through BEFORE yesterday`s 5pm deadline, which kinda makes you wonder just what other deals were struck that we don`t know about yet.

O`Toole - a product of Watford`s sparkling Academy - was outstanding in Boothroyd`s reign, scoring 12 goals in 39 starts as well as earning his international spurs and Colchester fans should look forward to his arrival.

Knowing John-Joe he will be keen and eager to show just what he can do. Let`s not forget that there were reports of a million pound move to Newcastle or Wolves about 12 months ago…but that`s before he got dumped in the footballing wilderness.

Unleash your Raging Horn and have your say
Is O`Toole`s reunion with Boothroyd a move that echoes Rodgers signing Bridcott to be his eyes and ears in the dressing room whilst he settles into the hotseat?

How many of you are thinking you`d wish Aidy had also snatched Ellington and Sadler whilst he was at it….? Maybe that was a little too much to hope for.

Good luck John Joe.

Not good enough that's why. Runs around like a headless chicken, doesn't get back enough and often the game passes him by. I think a loan at Col U will do him good, I daresay he will play a good run of games and it will aid his development. And Severin is a totally different type of player, defensive, like Eustace.

What john joe has over eustace and severin is he can score goals! thats good enough for me,the tracking bck positioning and so on that will come with experience. Never been keen on eustace can not see anything in him, severin honestly i should give him abit of time. but certain he aint up to much either!

The lack of competitiveness will prove to be our downfall.. I think Severin is too slow on the ball.. Eustace is a tryer but sometimes get a little hot headed.. He always looks likly to get a red card when he plays. JJO'T will probable do alright with Aidy.. He's a bit fat but "he seams to be in the right place at the right time" Maybe it might do him well & in turn us....
