[LNB]"I have the confidence that we have the people in the background to make sure the right decisions are made," he told BBC Three Counties Radio. [LNB]"Lord Ashcroft has three times come to the rescue of Watford. Whoever he sells his shares to, I believe, will be to the benefit of Watford Football Club."[LNB] What worries me is that the knight in shining armour we're all after just doesn't exist. That means we seek the next best alternative, but who knows what that is One_Lars_Melvang Ashcroft has lent Watford a total more than £6.55m to help keep the business going but has exchanged those debts for a large share in £10m worth of bonds.
