Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell

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
3. Reading
4. Queens Park Rangers
5. Sheffield United
6. Crystal Palace
-------------------------------------
22. Doncaster
23. Sheffield Wednesday
24. Barnsley

Watford will finish in mid-table - and that`ll be happy with at this moment in time!

Keep the faith,

Tom Bodell

I share your concern and would also settle for a mid table - (hopeful)/top half (unlikely)/run for the playoffs (incredible) type season with some decent football served up occasionally Not sure about Ashikodi but would suggest that if he's on big money (which is unlikely) that Hereford couldn't afford him; which then begs the question: Are they paying us a fee and/or covering all his wages, or are we subsidising the deal just to get him away and save a few quid? God only knows what will happen next, I await the next instalment with fear & trepidation and hope that the ownership issue is resolved sooner rather than later. Maybe the one and only GT could get involved to create interest, generate some funding from the rich & famous, and be the figurehead for a consortium to take the club over and generate funding as Lineker did at Leicester? I know they've just got relegated but that's not the issue here. What do you think? Come on You Golden Boys!
