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

Club 'hopeful' Deeney will resume Watford career

Watford have this morning released a statement on the future of Troy Deeney which gives the clearest indication yet that the player will resume his playing career at Vicarage Road.

After Deeney himself released an apologetic statement earlier in the week through Sky Sports News, the club have responded today with the following statement:

'WATFORD FC acknowledges the recent public apology issued by Troy Deeney.

The club can confirm it is now in discussion with his advisors, with the intention to discuss Deeney`s future directly with the player himself upon his release.

Given the remorse demonstrated by Deeney, both in court and through his public apology, Watford FC is hopeful of reaching a resolution that allows the club to support the player through his rehabilitation while he continues his playing career with the Hornets.'

The long and the short of it is that Deeney has satisfied the club with his (very late) apology to the supporters and his team mates and will return to playing upon his release unless something goes drastically wrong between now and then.

The thing is you know as a youngster years back I've been out & had too much to drink & done things that were wrong.. I've had fights & stuck up for family & close friends.. The more I think about this story I'm starting to think we should give him a chance.. For me now I might go against what a lot of fans think but I would allow him a chance to put things right... Sorry it's just my view after weeks of thinking......
