Season over for Clever Tom

Season over for Clever Tom

Ahhh, the news we all knew was coming and all secretly dreaded has finally been unveiled this afternoon with Watford confirming Tom Cleverley`s "season is sadly finished"!

The on loan Manchester United and England U21 star suffered lateral ligament damage to his knee in Easter Monday`s battling 1-1 draw with West Brom and has definitely been ruled out for the remaining 5 games of the Hornets campaign

…without doubt a massive blow to the Hornet`s hopes of survival AND not the build up to the huge 12-pointer with relegation rivals Plymouth this weekend.

Malky Mackay had the unenvious task of confirming the worst, telling Watford`s 'fficial site "It is a terrible shame for both Tom and the Club…His impact since being at the Club has been there for all to see…It goes without saying that everyone here wishes him a speedy recovery".

Our Braveheart boss also praised Clever Tom`s "all round attitude and application" and insisted that Cleverley "will go on to have a top-level career" at Old Trafford'.

Ok, so it`s not quite a Black Thursday here at VitalWatford Towers but it sure feels like lady luck has, like on many other occasions this season, kicked us right in the knackers just when we`ve needed it least.

Now, step up to the plate Mssrs McGinn, Cowie, Bryan, Mingoia even and get your creative juices flowing for the all important run-in!
