Watford legend Heider Helguson could be in for an emotional return to Vicarage Road after Sky Sports suggest the Iceman is being lined up for a loan deal with the Hornets.

H, who left the comfort zone of Hertfordshire for the bright lights of F`Lem in June 2006, now has the chance to chalk up a double century of games for the Golden Boys – after leaving on 199 appearances.

Sky reckon Malky Mackay has beaten off the attentions of Middlesborough to snare the former Lillestrom and Bolton target man on loan from those not so super Hoops at Loftus Road?

?but whilst 64 goals in 148 starts and a place in the Hornets ‘Hall of Fame` is good enough for some fans there are others who think Helguson would be a backward step, with one even suggesting this reunion would show “a complete lack of ambition by the board”.

Let`s face it, at 32 Heider comes with bags of Championship experience and a do or die attitude that will suit with Malky`s Braveheart “warrior”style. But – he`s been a tad injury prone of late and he`s also not the quick footed, slippery eel of a striker that Watford fans want to partner Danny ‘Golden` Graham up front.


What do you think? Is it right to go back to former glory boys? Would you welcome Heider with open arms even given his celebrations in front of the Rookery when he netted THAT winner for Fulham???
