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

Press Quip King of the Championship

With just a handful of days to go before Ricky 'The Hitman` Hattan takes on Floyd Mayweather for the title Welterweight Champion of the World, here at VitalWatford thought we`d spice things up a bit with our own war of, er, words…

So ahead of the Clash of the Titans that is Watford versus Bristol City this Saturday, we ask you to read the press quotes from both managers below and then vote in the fans poll for the Press Quip King of the Championship…

Introducing….

In the yellow corner and wearing the shorts which are undecided as to whether they are black or red - Aidy 'The Sting` Boothroyd

If it was a Boxing match it would be Muhammad Ali versus Jimmy Krankie.
[on Watford`s Semi Final clash with Man Utd - 4 days after the Reds had won 7-1 v Roma]

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 v West Ham, despite having their preparation ruined by the weather]

'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]


And in the red corner, wearing, well not much below the waist in truth standing in Burton`s shop window - Gary 'The Bristol Pistol` Johnson….

It was an honour to get closer to Britney Spears than any man's managed before!'
[on the same day his picture was next sat alongside a rather revealing photo of the pop princess in a national tabloid newspaper]

'As it's our home game I suppose it's down to me to treat Sven. I've had a word with the chairman and I reckon our budget will stretch to about £4.60.'
[on hearing that Man City boss Sven celebrated victory in the cup with a £460 bottle of burgundy]

'It's a fine line between success and failure but Macca [Bristol City winger Michael McIndoe] has seen it and he told me he was just offside... So I punched him.'
[on a last minute equaliser by Michael McIndoe that was correctly ruled offside by the linesman]


Ding Ding….Let battle commence - Don't forget to vote
