Tom-Dele Bashiru might just be what Watford’s Doctors need to Order


When Watford sent Tom Dele-Bashiru off on loan to Reading, in the championship, it was chiefly because they believed the first team had enough creative players to ensure at least that they could secure 40 points this season to stay up in the Premiership.

Since then, they’ve only picked two wins – 7 points in total – sacked the manager, hired Claudio Ranieri and got whopped by Liverpool 5-0, with very little creativity in midfield.
Basically, by December if nothing changes the Hornets might already be knee deep in the relegation battle.
All these while one of their best options for fresh perspective in the heart of the midfield – Bashiru – continues to bedazzle opponents on a weekly in the Championship.
Most recently, the 22 year-old scored his third goal of the season in his 11th league appearance; his contributions helping a hitherto struggling Royals, dream they can finish in one of the promotion playoffs spots.
It’s still early days though, just 13 games in, but what he has brought to Veljko Paunović’s side is the kind of quality that gives your team something extra.
Although Reading lost 3-2 eventually – no thanks to an 85th penalty and a massive spirited Blackpool side on Wednesday, Tom Dele-Bashiru left nothing in the tank until his substitution in the 83rd minute.
The youngster is one who should be fighting in the big leagues, for a bigger purpose and more so on Watford’s watch.
