    To all the usual "professional whinger numpites" on here who recently (make that for a VERY long time actually) have been coming out with such gems as "the East Stand is taking way too long", "no ambition, must be happy with the championship at Watford", "Pozzos are turning us into an Udinese feeder club" and other such complete drivel, BS and b****cks.

    If you don't start pulling behind our great club after this colossal statement of intent then I have 2 things to say...

    1. You don't deserve to be Watford fans
    and
    2. Do all proper Watford fans a favour and naff to support Spurs, where your ridiculous moaning will be more welcomed!

    Absolutely over the moon about Matty being back...only slight note of caution is that I hope Mr Chovanec shuts up for good this time and lets him focus on being a roaring success for a WHOLE season with the Orns this time.

    Because we all saw what his blathering did to Matty last time around i.e. after those astonishing first 20 games.

    Go get 'em Matty and to the whole of the Championship...be afraid....be VERY afraid!

    Up the Orns!!! :-)
    Great post mbwfc1976.

    I too am sick of the moaners who come on this site as if they would like to return to the bad and very bad old days. Surely soon it will sink in that the Pozzos are the best type of football owners and fans of other clubs (e.g. Leeds, Forest) would love to have them.

    Most unbelievable are those that criticise the East Stand situation. How long have we a had a wreck to look at? Now a new stand is rising gradually, and who cares if it takes a few more weeks/months to finish!?

    Welcome back Matej and come on you Hornets!"

He's back! Watford re-sign Matej Vydra on initial season-long loan

Watford's promotion hopes have been boosted by the re-signing of Matej Vydra on an initial season-long loan.

Vydra was a crucial part of the Hornets side which just missed out on automatic promotion during the 2012/13 campaign and then lost the play-off final in extra-time.

The Czech Republic international scored 22 goals that season and also won the Championship Player of the Season award.

His performances attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs during the first half of the campaign and despite a dip in form, West Bromwich Albion still decided to sign the Udinese striker on loan last summer.

The 22-year-old struggled to recapture his form in the Premier League though as he scored three times in 25 appearances for the Baggies.

We reported at the beginning of May that Watford were keen to re-sign Vydra and whilst his agent had initially suggested he wanted a move to a club in a top division in Europe, the Golden Boys remained confident of landing their number one transfer target.

At the end of May, Vydra spoke of not wanting to spend another season out on loan, having to meet new team-mates, and was keen to find a club where he could settle.

Watford have stated the current deal is "an initial" season-long loan which suggests a permanent deal could happen in the future - something which is likely to be determined by how the Hornets' promotion campaign pans out.

The Hornets' hierarchy want to mount a challenge for automatic promotion this season, after a disappointing campaign last time out, and have already strengthened the squad significantly.

Ex-Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, former Premier League defenders Gabriel Tamas and Craig Cathcart and Leicester City's promotion-winning wide man Lloyd Dyer have already signed permanent contracts with the club.
