Subs hold the key for Hornets Aidy
Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd reckons the quality of his bench warmers could well be the secret to the Glory Hornet Boys having a successful season in the Championship.
The Watford subs bench is indeed starting to have a menacing look to it these days with Sir Aidy being joined in the dug out by over £7m worth of talent in flying winger Jobi McAnuff and club record signing striker Nathan Ellington, who are both desperate for spots in the first eleven.
And with East European hitman Thomas Priskin and defensive cover Adrian Mariappa - who played in half of the Hornets Premiership games last term - also on the bench in recent weeks, the Hornets strength in depth is beginning to show through.
Sir Aidy told the incredibly informative people down at the official club site "If you`ve got a terrific bench then you can change a game. The best teams in the league are the ones with the better bench than the opposition".
But the Watford gaffer knows how lucky he is. After all, he`s also got regular first teamer`s Damien Francis and Al Bangura on the way back from injury and soon vying for a first team slot and Estonian International Mart Poom fighting to regain the number 1 jersey with keeper Richard Lee.
He went on to add "The talent we`ve got here on the bench is as good as, if not better than, what we have on the pitch".
You said it Aidy...now just don't start tinkering!!!
