Notts County loanee Chris Iwelumo says 'there's not much there for me at Watford'

Watford Observer: Picture: Holly Cant Picture: Holly Cant

Chris Iwelumo says he expects to leave Vicarage Road for good in January after accepting "there's not much there for me at Watford".

The experienced striker made eight appearances for the Hornets this season before joining Notts County on loan in November.

But Iwelumo is certainly now behind Troy Deeney, Alex Geijo, Matej Vydra and Fernando Forestieri in Gianfranco Zola's pecking order and also faces competition from the likes of Steve Leo Beleck and Britt Assombalonga, who could return to Watford from his loan spell at Southend United in January.

Iwelumo, who is on-loan at Notts County until January, told the Football League Paper: "I think I will probably be moving in January, permanently, so I have got to make sure I keep my head down and do what I can for Notts.

"If I can deliver and something can get done then we will see what happens from there.

"My gut feeling is that there's not much there for me at Watford."

The 34-year-old has made three starts for Keith Curle's side since he joined almost a month ago.

Fair play to him if he would rather drop down a division and play regularly (and presumably take a pay cut) rather than pick up his wages from us and not play

An honest bloke that did his best. Tried hard but not able to bang the goals in. Good luck Chris. As for the deadwood comments, I do agree but let's hope they all find work somewhere in football.

No loss, actually quite a relief if he goes! He's 34 and way past his prime, he also has a very poor goal scoring record!
He's been on loan at Notts County for a while and only played three games and hasn't scored!
Be good to get him of the wage bill along with Garner, Dickinson, Forsyth and Jenkins!
A very poor signing at the man who signed him should be sacked!... Oh he was! Lol

He was always an embarressment and should never have been signed. Zola gave him far too many chances, and he should have gone long ago.

How many starts under Zola? what a pathetic post,typical comment from a supporter that know's jack all.He has age against him and far too many strikers in front of him,even Vydra at times can not get in the side.One thing is that no one can fault his effort and even Britt on loan has said that Chris taught him a lot and has taken that to southend with him,and we can see the benefits.So hats off to Chris.

Yet again someone has to mention Yeates,despite him playing exceptionally well during our unbeaten run before Hull.Where do we get these fans from? shenley? Nothing but Negative morons even though he has helped us in a TEAM up to 7th place..

Brainless w@nkers...Best we get rid of all those that can't get in to the side,even Murray.

That right he did and while he wasn't exactly prolific, when fit he worked hard and caused plenty of problems for opposing defences.
He's 34 and unlikely to get a run in our 1st team now but he's still a decent player and I hope he does well at his new club when he goes.

BIg Chris was a great help to Zola at the start of the season. His experience helped settle the upheaval down and even now would be useful talking to the front men and giving them the benefit of his experience ( although I agree that he doesn't warrant a place in the team). Probably the best we have played for a full 45 mins this season was against Birmingham , where he led the line. So good luck to him , hope he does well. As for Yeates he has played as well as anyone in the team so far this season. Some players were awful on Saturday , but they don't seem to get slagged off . AS for deadwood ...THAT deadwood team of last year , plus the manager kept us in the division with EFFORT , if not so much technical ability.Some need to respect last seasons team , even if it wasn't pretty...they did a good job. If we had gone down do you think the POZZO's would have been so happy to take over. Prime example is Deeney who is putting the "international" Vydra and other more skilled players to shame with his effort and improvement so far this season.

Plenty of ex players worthy of a few insults and abuse, such as lazy overpaid Ellington, short greedy Connoly, ex scummer Dixon etc, but lets not all just start knocking every player that turns out surplus to requirements such as The Big Man.

It amazes me that he did not have a better conversion rate, however don't think that you can really question the guys effort in particular early season.

I am sure it is best all round if he moves on and I wish him well, only because we are in such a wonderful place right now with an influx of talent at a much higher level. We were unfortunately in the midst of very dark days when he joined on a free and he did his best to help pull together a very cheap and young squad.

Will the same be belittling the efforts of Fessi in a couple of years time when we ship him out to make room for Messi?

Well said Dusty. As for Yeates, surprised that he's getting slagged off. His last few performances have been decent at the least. He's made me revalue his worth.
As for Big Chris, not our greatest signing, but he was a nuisance and drew defenders around him leaving space for others. It's not always the guy on the ball doing the hard work.
We mustn't get above ourselves as we climb.

Don't always agree with you, D, but spot on with this post as far as I'm concerned. Although he failed to score on most appearances, I felt his sheer workrate, effort and leadership, particularly at the tail end of last season, helped pull the team to their final good finish. Good luck to him for the future.

Don't agree with you on this Peter - Chris when fit played some great games for us and was often quoted as being the difference between the two teams. The problem is a lack of consistency and the age factor - big guys become slower quicker.

It's this sort of posting that dragged this website down a couple of months ago. Northofwatfordpete showed a civilised way of disagreeing. This post makes up comments I haven't made attacks them as well and ends with a bit of personal abuse! He was in our squad 8 times this year. As for his effort the Burnley boards were full of comments about how we had been sold a pup and our own fanzine had an aerobics article by him.
I saw him play two good away games and one effective home game in his time here. The home game was where a big centre half had been bullying Garner - Chris came on and first cross his elbow was in the defender's midriff and the guy just backed off. Effective but not pretty!
He was slow, poor positionally and did not have the ability to hold the ball up like a Jenkins or Rasiak. He is currently struggling to get into the Notts County team - what a star!

Funny he's at Notts County. I believe those fan's favourites, Jordan Stewert and Gavin Mahon are there.
I don't blame his playing abilities, I blame the decision to buy him. We new what we were getting, a player which would play flick the ball on and maybe muscle the ball into the net every now and again. He looked incredibly slow at times, but I believe he tried harder than some other players. He was panic buy...let's move on.

Yet again someone has to mention Yeates,despite him playing exceptionally well during our unbeaten run before Hull.Where do we get these fans from? shenley? Nothing but Negative morons even though he has helped us in a TEAM up to 7th place.. Brainless w@nkers...Best we get rid of all those that can't get in to the side,even Murray.[/p][/quote]Shenley! I haven't heard that one for a while. Agree that these sort of posts are not needed. Everyone is entitled to their opinion whether you agree or not.... A little more tolerant fella. Harry's Bar
