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

Hornets to coax Cox to Vic'?

With Nathan Ellington scoring his first Watford goal in a year this week, it comes as something of a surprise that the 'Orns are being linked with another forward...psssh.

Former Reading and Swindon striker Simon Cox is being linked with a loan move to Vicarage Road after failing to make his mark at the Hawthorns following his Ł1.9m move from Wiltshire. The Swindon Advertiser linked the 22 year old with a move to join Bravheart's boys over the weekend, whilst former club Swindon are also in the mix for the striker.

The 5'10' forward scored an astonishing 32 goals last season for Swindon before a protracted move to join Robbie di Matteo's Baggies side over the Summer. Since arriving in the black country the striker has managed just eight appearances and mostly off the bench with one league start. In recent weeks, 17 year old Kiwi kid, Chris Wood has been selected ahead of him.

Cox's career record reads 98 league starts and 46 league goals despite making his full football league bow in 2006 on loan at Brentford.

Would be a good signing.... Always rated him and if there's anything we've learnt from ol' Golden Graham is that if these lower league hitmen get a good run of games they will produce!

Maybe he could do a job for us.. Here's hoping..

Cox has barely had a look in at West Brom so far and I'd think his wages would need to be subsidised, but maybe they believe they owe us after the Ellington deal.

Sounds like a danny graham opposite to me! would prefer it if we could do a deal with qpr for heider,be a great partnership that for danny! any news on heider's return. jay demerit anyone know exactly how long he is out for?
Golden Looney
Last news was Demerit should return by Christmas and was more concerned about his place in the US World Cup squad although, I think Heidar may make the bench at WBA on Saturday.
RFB-gloryhornetboys
Can't see it myself... unless we are losing one of our loanee's.. Cox's wages are gonna be high, can we afford it? Agents working again?
