VitalWatford`s Editor-in-Chief, Dr Watford, openly admits that the name of Sunderland protégé Ryan Noble has escaped him so far in his quest for all things 'football`... but after a bit of digging on Watford`s latest loan recruit, he likes what he hears.
And the noise coming out of the Stadium of Light about the U17 and U19 England frontman is certainly encouraging with Sunderland boss, Steve Bruce waxing lyrical about his "brilliant prospect".
'Wonder kid`, 'star in the making` 'whizz kid` - whatever they call Noble in the North East, the Black Cats boss is indeed right... 32 goals in 23 games in this season`s youth and reserve league is "a quite exceptional record that he`s got so far".
And that`s not all, it appears Malky Mackay may well have captured another er, 'Brucie Bonus` with the Sunderland gaffer adding "I`ve seen him score 2 hattricks [against Bolton and Sheffield Wednesday reserves] and he has fantastic pace and a fantastic finish...He`s lightening quick".
Fantastic pace? Lightening quick? Ah, it is music to our ears. Watford fans have been screaming out for some out and out raw speed all season to compliment with Danny Graham or Heider Helguson.
But let`s not get carried away with ourselves. After all, remember that feeling when Aidy Boothroyd took a fresh faced Aston Villa striker with lightening pace and a staggering hit rate at reserve team level on loan to solve our goalscoring crisis? Only, for an admittedly inexperienced Gabriel Agbonlahor to oh, so disappoint.
So, maybe, those Hornet fans who are already hitting the various message boards blasting "we do not need young kids with 9 games to go fighting for survival" might have a point.
Yes, with his styled blond locks and cheeky grin, Wor Ryan looks more boyband than dogfight scrapper but when the Watford official site says he`s joined "to provide cover" , here at VitalWatford Towers, we hope that actually means '...will start against Boro`.
Let`s mix it up a bit Malky.
