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

Watford boss hot n' cross with Easter!

The Easter bunny had better go into hiding for his own safety because Watford boss Malky Mackay is hopping mad with a hectic Easter schedule ... and it`s not an overindulgence on chocolate eggs that`s left him feeling rather sick.

In fact, 2 tough games in 48 hours and a 400 mile 7 hour road trip to Preston and back (amidst the Bank Holiday traffic and caravaning heaven on the M1) has put some serious pressure on Mackay`s young squad and has overworked the Watford medical staff.

With Helguson, Taylor and Demerit all on the treatment table, Cleverley out for the season and Buckley doubtful with a hamstring pull (just like Doyley) the Hornets gaffer has every right to have a pop with his Plymouth preparations in tatters.

The London Evening Standard reckon Malky 'is furious the congested Easter programme has decimated his squad` and quoted our fired up gaffer as blasting "One day between games is not enough in the modern age'.

Mackay continued "It should be a full programme on Good Friday and then maybe a Monday list."

Good Friday??? Sounds like Malky`s had a Bad Thursday by the sound of it!

Totally agree

When a club in the champ plays on a sunday they have their match moved to a wednesday in a mid-week because 1 day is not long enough to recover. So with WBA playing on fri why could our game with PNE not be played on good friday?
