Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd reckons his side have been on “emotional rollercoaster together” but “have come full circle” as they prepare to face Hull for a place at Wembley.

Ok, Ok. Here at VitalWatford we promise not to mention Tommy Smith`s play-off clinching strike as ‘The Big One` at Blackpool or the ‘Ups and Downs` of a rocky season, but the gaffer must stop throwing up these juicy media metaphors for us to play ‘pun tennis` with!

Seriously though, Boothroyd insists his troops are ready for the play-offs stating “I can tell you that the training ground is a very happy place this week. The relief has lifted and it made way for an atmosphere akin to that of preseason – and the sunshine has certainly helped”?

He added “There is a feeling of a new beginning and everyone has suddenly found a renewed vigour. We are ready to go again”.

Well, we`ll just wait to see then if the rollercoaster ends with us fans as sick as that proverbial parrot or on a joyride of a lifetime!
