So Sir Aidy told the ever so glamourous Sky Sports crew that he was 'lost for words` after Watford`s last gasp victory over Southampton on Sunday. Well that`s a first…
The Good Ship Boothroyd may well be rendered 'speechless` after 3-2 win against the classy Saints, but it does give the VitalWatford boys a thinly disguised reason to whip out a few of his more memorable quotes under the media spotlight:
Roll the titles…
"If it was a boxing match it would be Muhammad Ali against Jimmy Krankie."
(on a Top v Bottom mismatch against Man Utd at Old Trafford - a 4-0 defeat)
"The fat lady hasn't started singing yet, although she might be clearing her throat."
(On staring relegation from the Premiership in the face)
'I told the board I was looking for promotion - one or two of them fell off their chairs'
(On outlining his plans for Watford`s future at his managerial vacancy interview)
"I don't think I was sent off, I think I was sent to the stands for my own safety."
(After squaring up to Fitz Hall during a 22-man brawl in the playoff win against Palace)
"We've had the snow this week so we've done very little training. We've built an igloo, a large Danny Shittu sized snowman and had a snowball fight and so we might have to put the balls away in future and take the players to a snowdome instead."
(Following Watford`s 1-0 win at Upton Park, despite having their preparation ruined by the weather)
"It would be a major shock, beyond belief, up there with man landing on the moon.'
(On facing Man Utd in the FA Cup semi final, 4 days after the Red`s won 7-1 against Roma)
Would I do it again? I will have to have a look at it because I don't want to pay him extra to be a stadium announcer
(on asking injured Marlon King to grab a microphone and gee up the crowd ahead of a 6-pointer against Wigan)
"We grow our players at this club, we don't have a greenhouse in the back because we can't afford it, we're more of a microwave club"
(on the success of Watford`s academy programme, following the Ashley Young transfer to Villa)
"Coming into this interview I was a bit unsure whether to play it down and be sensible. But then I thought 'no, sod it!` "
(After walking away from the Middlesborough game with 3 points! - it had been a long time coming)
And they said Ian Holloway was the man for soundbites!!!
