A nice lazy piece of journalism to report courtesy of the News of the World – that sadly is spreading like wild fire across the interweb at the speed of light.

Damn those Sunday paper sports desks?

The lethargic sports hacks down at the NOTW have taken a break from running endless monotonous kiss and tells of C-listers that noone really cares about to ‘report` that Brendan Rodgers is on his way to manage Reading in the summer!!!!

Shock, horror? Hardly an exclusive though is it? The ‘story` broke about 6 weeks ago when another lazy journo put two and two together and got a right royal ‘5` – what with Rodgers being a Reading old boy and all that tosh.

Even Rodgers himself has already distanced himself from any speculation that he was set to replace Steve Coppell, insisting “maybe because I`ve been there [Reading] for a long time and there`s maybe that sort of link”?.

?and that was 3 weeks ago, at the same point that the Hornets gaffer insisted he “loves everything about Watford”.

We admit that loyalty is indeed a dirty word in football these days it seems but from what we`ve seen and heard from the gaffer in recent weeks, here at VitalWatford we are convinced he certainly ain`t no Steve Bruce.

Still we`ll prepare for the disappointment of him jumping ship just in case.
