Better Wages NOW: I’m sure his wages at Pompey are better then the ones he would have got at Reading this season. I’m sure he would have got Premier League money IF Reading got promotion, but with his lack of years left, he needs to earn his money while he can.
Good luck to you Tommy, you deserve to play in the Premier League, we only wish it was with Watford. Thanks for embrassing Rodgers with not turning up for the press conference on Tuesday it will make our encounters this season a lot easier no matter what happens in the games. Your a star!
Oh and make sure you keep Portsmouth up… there might be another £200k in it for us!
There is generally one thing you can be sure of on a busy night of sport. Contrasting emotions. Yesterday was no different. Come with me if you will through an evening in the muddled mind of yours truly…
I left Vicarage Road both disappointed and satisfied all at the same time. It’s one of those weird feelings you can have as a football fan.
A fellow Watford FC blogger Rookery Mike posted his thoughts on the Tommy Smith transfer saga that has been hanging over our heads for most of the summer. I got to feeling like I was breaking up with a girlfriend.
So, with my new found sense of calm, I have been quite proud of the sanguine way in which I have accepted Watford’s current financial plight. Despite the never ending tales of black holes in accounts and player departures, I have continually been able to find the positives and maintain some sort of optimistic excitment.
I’m not sure if they’ll be doing a Football League commentary game on BBC Five Live Sports Extra. Watford have been know to be the main commentary game but it is broken up quite a lot with scores from around the league. It may return when the cricket season is over!
Roll on Sheffield on Saturday
You might have heard Jimmy Russo’s interview with BBC 3 counties in the last few days…
Yesterday Vicarage Road was definitely a first day of school. There was the excitement of being back there for the first time, the sun was out, we had a new manager, a great pre-season – and at 3pm everything in the Watford world was good.
I’ve always wanted to create a Rookery End chant – I don’t know why, maybe it’s the creative challenge?
