H's back & Healy's poised for Watford
Cometh the time, Cometh the Iceman...
Watford legend, Heider Helguson, is set to become a double centurian at Vicarage Road after being reunited with the side who gave him his big break in English football, all thanks to a 3-month loan from those not-so-Super Hoops of QPR.
...and that`s not all.
David Healy is "prepared" to make the long trek south from Sunderland to build a frontline worth getting all het up about in Hertfordshire.
Hitman Helguson, who made 199 appearances for Watford in his first spell in WD18 before being packed off to the bright lights of Fulham, has fallen out of favour with Rangers boss, Jim Magilton, and straight into the arms of the glory hornet faithful who adore him.
Yes, Heider`s not quite the player he was 8 years ago when Sir Graham Taylor plucked him from Lillestrom and yes, he`s had a few injuries of late but if it`s experience & 100% commitment that Malky Mackay wants then it`s a great move.
And, if rumours north of the Watford Gap are to be believed, then Helguson could soon be paired with Sunderland outcast David Healy - despite the W`Observer suggesting that Helguson`s loan has put an end to the Hornet`s Healy chase.
Reports in the North East are rife that Healy is ready to leave the Wearside wilderness for Watford imminently with the over-eager sports hacks at the Northern Echo even suggesting that "the Northern Ireland international is poised to join the Hornets on a temporary basis..."!
Ok, so there`s plenty of if`s and probably`s in the whole Healy hunt - with Cov, Newcastle and Ip`switch still vying for his signature - but if it does happen , what a great big man, little man combo to get excited about (and that`s even forgetting Danny Graham might have a thing or two to say on the whole matter).
