Matej Vydra: Czech international celebrates with his Watford team-mates

The rules dictating loan additions have come under scrutiny this season after Watford brought in 11 players on temporary deals.

The Hornets are third in the npower Championship after fully utilising owner Gino Pozzo's stakes in Udinese and Granada to flood their squad.

Current rules do not place a limit on the number of loan signings a club can make but restrict a matchday squad to containing only five on-loan players.

However those rules do not encompass internationally-capped players so Watford are free to select Joel Ekstrand, Almen Abdi, Matej Vydra and Daniel Pudil outside that five player rule.

The AGM in the summer will address other issues but the most high-profile vote will relate to the loan system, with the aim of international players falling under the same restrictions and being included in the five on-loan individuals permitted in a matchday squad.

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.
