On Aidy's command - Release Hell!

On Aidy's command - Release Hell!

The Good Ship Boothroyd could go all out attack with an all new 4-3-3 formation to scare the living daylights out of QPR as Watford look to cement their place at the head of the Championship pile

After dropping Marlon King down to the bench at Cardiff on tuesday night, Sir Aidy has admitted he is tempted to give all 3 strikers a start at Loftus Road to make best use of the range of striking power at his disposal down at WD18.

Boothroyd told the lovely newspaper folk down at the Wattie Observer: 'I am thinking about it. We've done a little bit of work on it in training but not too much. It's something we could work on Friday and perhaps do."

If a switch to 4-3-3 does materialise against the Super Hoops, it will no doubt feature Darius Henderson as the rock steady spearhead with King Marlon and The Duke coming in from the flanks.

Hendo has been in red hot form for the Glory Hornet Boys of late, having netted 4 goals in the last 2 games since making way for the arrival of Nathan Ellington and has given Sir Aidy a right ol` selection headache.

The lack of midfield cover for the injured quartet of Bang Bang, Francis, Rinaldi and Williams could prompt the Good Ship Boothroyd to opt for a 3 pronged attack line, after playing right back Adrian Mariappa as an emergency holdng midfielder in midweek.

However VitalWatford`s August Player of the Month, Lee Williamson, could be set for a return back into the midfield engine room after missing the 2-1 win at Cardiff on Tuesday night.

Options. Options. Options.
