Chris Iwelumo: Believes Watford will get promoted this season

The Pozzo family have overseen a huge influx of overseas players under the management of Gianfranco Zola at Vicarage Road.

Iwelumo started the season as the Hornets' captain but has now joined npower League One strugglers Oldham on loan in order to gain first-team football, and he is backing his parent club for promotion this term.

The veteran striker said: "I think from last season there's probably two or three players that are still involved. Jonathan Hogg's playing quite a bit, Yeatesy (Mark Yeates) is in and out, (Nyron) Nosworthy's in and out.

"The rest are new players so it is a difficult one to take but we're doing well so you can't really complain.

"I think Watford will go up this year if I'm being honest with you.

"The players they've brought in are great lads, Zola's an absolute gentleman and a legend as well so I wish them all the best and I've got a really good feeling that they will go up."

On his relationship with Zola, Iwelumo added: "I was (given a chance). He made me captain, I was captain for August and the full month of September. I started every match so it's just one of those things.

"The gaffer was brilliant with me. I can't fault him, he's been absolutely fantastic for me."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
