Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell

Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell
More and more Watford news to offer my unadulterated opinion on and though we`re yet to sign anyone, it is finally beginning to feel like the season is just around the corner - and not too soon either!

Sorry Danny but you`re not worth 20k a week [if reports are to be believed], of course this opens up that old chestnut of footballers wages, and frankly they`re all overpaid in the top two divisions, but Danny Shittu, Championship defender, potential Premier League defender is getting ideas way above his station. The very fact that he has described Rangers as his 'preferable destination` looses him my support as it seems he wants out in my eyes.

Byebye Steve Kabba. PERHAPS Mr Boothroyd has finally learnt that the Sun does not shine out the behind of anyone he signs as he has now had rid of several of his own hapless signings since the end of the season. The real issue here is with Ellington and Kabba now gone, Priskin, Henderson and Ashikodi are our only viable forward options - not very threatening in terms of the title eh!? Robbie Keane is hardly likely to spurn Liverpool to join Watford, even if we did have 20million and I see few pacey strikers carrying a goal threat around at a realistic price…

Mixed messages surrounding… Will Hoskins. The Watford Observer report he is available for transfer whilst the site report he is 'looking to get fit and make an impact upon the Championship this season`. So I`m confused, is he staying or going? Personally I want the kid to stay, play of Henderson and see how he does, if the answer is 'badly` then offload him, but that could be a good partnership in my opinion.

Player power is taking the p***. Dan Shittu, Gareth Barry, Cristiano Ronaldo - all giving their clubs the run-around and treating their respective supporters, supporters who oversaw the making of them, like dirt. It`s disgraceful and I for one have had enough of players demanding extortionate contracts, wages, bonuses and moves when in the middle of a current deal. The way I see it if you want to move, then don`t sign a five year deal in the first place Mr Ronaldo. Take the calculated risk that Madrid will pay you 50k extra per week than United and reject the carrot of a bumper contract dangled in front of you.

Ronaldinho, join Manchester City, a bit of a circus, but no-where near as much as Milan, with their has-beens. Plus, the temptation to gorge on Italian cuisine is far greater than fish and chips in Manchester!

Keep the faith,

Tom Bodell
