Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell
With the club in meltdown on and off the field, I felt it a good time to get away from it all and spent a week in wet and miserable Torquay. Still, I`ve come back and now it seems things are as bad, if not worse than when I departed…and I can dispel rumours I`ve been camped on Mr Boothroyd`s doorstep wielding various weapons…Are we going to
play 4-6-0 next season or what?
Does a striker fit into Adrian`s plans at all? The loaning of Moses Ashikodi is ridiculous when he is amongst few to score in a poor pre-season! But hang on, is he on that big a wage that he had to be let go, is that to say we were so damn desperate for a striker in January `07, we bought in someone useless, bunged 'em a few quid and hoped for the best Mr Boothroyd? Never?! Surely not?!Does Jon Harley have
any intelligence, or does his wife just want to shop at the Harlequin? I`m guessing the latter, because no footballer in their right mind would want to sign for Watford at the moment! All the same, a decent player, but if you`re Mat Sadler or Jordan Parkes, you`re surely seething that a third left back has been brought in?Mr Simpson
- I`ve a suggestion, don`t heed it if you don`t want to, but instead of using the little money the club has to sue the local rag, how about putting your opinions across via the W.O to buy yourself a little time before the rightly angry supporters lynch you at home to Bristol Rovers?!? You`re lucky I`m away then…again.
And finally, my predictions for this Championship season:
1. Birmingham City
2. Derby County
4. Queens Park Rangers
5. Sheffield United
6. Crystal Palace
23. Sheffield Wednesday
Watford will finish in mid-table - and that`ll be happy with at this moment in time!
Keep the faith,
