A Rose by any other name...

A Rose by any other name...

'Boy Wonder` screamed the redtops as the dog eared sports hacks at some of the finest tabloids got all a bother with Spur`s "instant hero" Danny Rose. "Wonder strike" shouted the Guardian - even the high brow journo`s were wetting themselves with excitemen...

Here at VitalWatford Towers we`ve even seen him dubbed the 'The next Paul Gascoigne` as the hysteria hit fever pitch!!!

But let`s not get carried away with it all guys. After all, for anyone who was at the Vic last season to watch the Spurs youngster gain this "all important valuable senior experience" on loan at Watford will know that Danny Boy hardly came up smelling of er` Roses!

In fact, forget his crackajack 30 yard stunner just 10 minutes into his Spurs league debut that had Arsenal keeper Almunia flappling at thin air to win the North London derby...

...remember when he fell over his own 2 feet and scewed his shot wide of a completely unguarded goal from right on the goalline in Watford`s 2-2 draw against Southampton.

Forget 'the new Paul Gascoigne` - think more 'Ronny Rosenthal v Villa`... except much much worse.

Of his wonder goal , Danny might insist "I don`t think I have ever hit a better shot than that in my life"... but he most definitely has - a looping, swooping gorgeously placed 25 yard chip that sailed over Watford keeper Scott Loach at Norwich to record the most bizarre own goal we have ever seen!

Sure, Rose had raw pace - but raw pace down a blind alley with your head looking at your feet before being shoved off the ball. Only 3 starts at Watford says it all really (and 1 of those was at right back!)

So here at VitalWatford Towers, Danny joins the merry band of recent Watford loanees - alongside Agbonlohar and Hoyte - who falls nicely into the category of 'yeah ok, but he ain`t nothing special`.

So maybe, just maybe, Danny Rose might just have what it takes to a Tottenham Hotspur star - one moment of brilliance but then plenty of games of mundane nothingness!

Amen.

He was just back after a long injury when he went on loan and at a guess i'd suspect that the quality of players around him was hardly likely to help the young lads confidence. An utterlypointless, snide and negative article. Well done.

Posh fans weren't too bolwed over by him this season either. Alhough not coming back from injury Henri Lansbury and Tom Cleverley managed to slot in an show their quality this season amongst an arguably poorer team...

Such quality in the Watford team that you are facing a relegation battle, and your 2 best players won't be ther to hlp you ot of League 1 next season. Luton will be above you within 2 years

"Henri Lansbury and Tom Cleverley managed to slot in an show their quality this season amongst an arguably poorer team..." -- They are those two players. We are a poor team. Not sure about Luton above us in two though...

Rose will not make it at spurs. Norwich is the level at which he will do ok before ending up at Millwall.
