Ugly Betty but Boothroyd ain't bored

Ugly Betty but Boothroyd ain't bored

Aidy Boothroyd was quick to confirm he`d rather take efficiency over style any day after seeing his Watford troops return to the top of the Championship tree with a 2-1 away win at Ipswich.

The Hornets gaffer told the national media "Ipswich`s home record is incredible and if we [Watford] had come here and gone toe to toe with them we would have been beaten. That was never gonna happen. We are in the business of winning - We play to our strengths. Efficiency comes first and style follows".

He added 'People will say boring Watford again. But it was a fair result."

Indeed they did and indeed it was.

Even Tractor Boys boss admitted his side had played second fiddle to Boothroyd`s effective Hornets "The better team won. I thought they came here and did a real professional job on us. They didn`t let us play. We were second best all game".

But whilst the catcalls across the Sunday papers point towards Watford winning ugly, Boothroyd insisted he isn`t concerned by his sides output as long as 3 points are in the bag.

He said 'In terms of winning this was a ten out of ten effort. In terms of style, it was probably a 5 out of 10"

And here at VitalWatford we`ll give the gaffer a nice fat juicy 8 out of 10 for his honesty - we can`t say fairer than that.

but to say , it wasnt as bad as any other game before we had bought in the new players, we would usually do the booting game but we have been working on the passing game, especially within our midfield

We have some good ball players waiting in the wings as well - Williams is one of the best playmakers in this league and he has been out injured for the last 9 months...
