George Thorne: West Brom midfielder has joined Watford on loan

The midfielder will remain at Vicarage Road until 2nd January.

West Brom retain the right to recall Thorne after 28 days, but hope such a situation can be avoided.

The intention is for the 20-year-old to get important minutes under his belt with Watford.

He has only recently returned to fitness from a long-term knee injury and needs game time in order to rediscover full match sharpness.

Gianfranco Zola is prepared to offer him those opportunities with the Hornets and he could make his Watford bow against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Thorne should have no problem settling into new surroundings, with the Baggies academy graduate having previously taken in two loan spells at Portsmouth and one at Peterborough.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
