Hornets join SPL scrap for Maclean

Watford have reportedly joined a squabble of SPL clubs looking to snap up out of favour Plymouth striker Steve Maclean in the January sales - or so says the sports hacks at the Sun!

The former Cardiff, Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday frontman appears not to be to the liking of new Pilgrims boss Paul Mariner and was expected to join Hearts after popping north of the border for a trial over the festive season.

Now, apparently Maclean - who has been out of form and injury prone since a 500k move to Home Park 2 years ago - appears to be hot property with Aberdeen and another unnamed Scottish outfit keen on his signature.

Quite where the dog eared journos at the Sun got the Watford rumour from we`re not quite sure but given that Braveheart boss Malky Mackay admitted the Hornets 'would be thin on the ground and desperate to bring in a striker when Helguson went back to QPR, it could just be a case of lazy reporting.

For the record, Maclean showed plenty of promise when he netted 35 goals in 66 starts at Sheffield Wednesday but has since fallen off the radar after failing to rip up any trees at clubs since and hasn`t played for Plymouth since mid September.

Hmmmm.

With you on that one.Really if he can not even get in a plymouth side he must be very very bad,Were not that desperate shorly.I still believe there is life in hendo or hoskins. A central defender has to be our main priority

I think a CB is Malky's main priority but we are awfully short of firepower now that DG looks like a man with no confidence. I didn't mind somewhat when we saw HH and Ellington on the bench BUT Hendo does not fill me with confidence! What has happened to Marvellous Marvin Sordell?

You know what doc,i had forgotton all about marvin.Your wright,he is a lively player. What i have seen of him anyway.That's exactly my point Scoring goals is not really a problem for watford.We have cleves and henri till the end of the season anyway. So to me a striker is not all that important in the january tranfer window. Watford will and can score goals without heider,we got the options there to do so.

In defence on the other hand,watford have very few option's. Marriapa is best at full-back that just leaves jay d and dale bennet for that centre back position. We need a tall strong centre half. The teams dfence is bottom three credential for sure.
