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

By hook or by crook - King news

The bizarre, mixed up world of former Watford hitman Marlon King took it`s weirdest turn yet yesterday when the Sun insisted that the jailbird had turned to Islam after being radicalised by fellow muslim inmates!

King - or should we now call him Abu Hamza Tariq like he`s commanded his fellow prisoners to do? - appararently prays 5 times a day and has also apparently declared public hate figure and radical fundamentalist Abu Hamza as his "hero"...

...that would be the same Abu Hamza with the hook for a hand who is banged up for 7 years for 'soliciting mass murder` and inciting hate of the west then? Hardly the perfect role model huh!

The Sun`s 'insider` (you gotta love 'em) in the know reckons "Marlon`s gone from bad boy convict to devout muslin in next to no time", adding "Marlon has even talked about converting his family when he gets out of jail later this year".

Hmm, its all just a bit too surreal for VitalWatford to provide any serious comment but after a scrap in the dinner queue, smuggling a phone charger in and having cocaine found in his cell on a random search, life inside HMS Wayland scrubs seems anything but ordinary for ol` Abu!

And still Watford fans want him back at the Vic on his release? You bet ya...JUST - 51% voted to re-sign Marlon in a recent VitalWatford...

...though sadly, even that small majority are unlikely to get their wish - Kings told his fellow inmates that he's all but signed a deal with Chelsea on his release!(according to the Sun again)

Now that would be just too weird.

hide it in a birthday cake with a hacksaw and send it in to Wayland Scruffs.

C'mon Aidy - the boy needs help - you're the one who loves to reform these guys - see if the brights lights of Colchester attract Abu. Maybe he's got the wrong C..its Colchester not Chelski !

Maybe whilst he's at it he can take Jure Travner off our hands?! He's got previous for signing mysterious foreign players afterall!

He really believes he is a bit of a legend doesn't he. The bloke is deluded!!
