O'Toole fit for purpose for Hornets

Watford Academy graduate midfielder John Jo O`Toole made his first league start for the Hornets in Saturday`s hard fought win over Hull and immediately looked the part.

Shaggy haired O`Toole, who only signed professional terms in September, was drafted in alongside Skipper Mahon to replace the suspended Lee Williamson but set about making the midfield berth his own with an impressive performance.

Here at VitalWatford Towers we were a little sceptical. After all, 58% of our visitors wanted to see Brazilian playmaker Rinaldi get the nod (in a recent fans poll) but after 2 early crunching tackles, some fine runs into the box and a staggering 25 yard drive that forced Myhill into a top drawer tip over, O`Toole is fine by us.

And The Good Ship Boothroyd looked all the more balanced for it, with Sir Aidy telling the guys in the know down at the official site "…He is his own man and has no fear whatsoever…He went out on that pitch and didn`t look out of his depth, he reveled in it and I thought he put in an excellent performance".

Call the VitalWatford boys fickle if you want but we`d like to see O`Toole get a decent run in the side even when Williamson is available again. John Jo has all the makings of an instinctive midfielder who can break up play, get the ball down and knock it around and he will score goals…

That and we`re desperate to use the headline 'Bad workmen always blame O`Toole` at some point in the season…
