Watford FC sign Elton John (again)

Sir Elton John of Elton John fame has returned to Watford Football Club after quitting just two months ago.

The rocket man minced out of the club after 32 years loyal service due to a feud with former chairman Graham Simpson; and it’s taken all of new Watford manager Paul Rodgers' persuasion skills to convince him to come back.

"I was delighted when he accepted my invitation... and he was great with everyone. He rang me later when he got home, thanking me for the day" said Rodgers, adding: "People like Elton John have been involved here for many years. For me, it's important that people like that have a part in the future as well."

Of course, bags of cash to help the Championship side in the relegation battle doesn’t hurt as well.
