    He's also a brilliant tactical coach. No surprise Watford are ahead of the curve when it comes to game management these days.

    Centrocampista is definately a role I could fulfill on a football pitch

    Sure it’s ********, but talksport (which is the radio equivalent of the sun) reported earlier that WestHam were interested in Javi

    If, and it’s a sizeable if, there is any truth in this, they are a desperate bunch continually looking for quick fixes to cover up their utter incompetence at running a football club. Javi would be borderline clinically insane to even consider the move.

    Maybe Karren Brady uses other 'persuasive' methods to convince people........?!

    If he came out from there alive, it would be his grinning face rather his cool, quizzical one.

    He's been breaking records and beating the odds for us so far this season, maybe he'll add as his next achievement being our first manager not to succumb to the Manager of the Month curse.

    I really think Lineker should come out with a tweet like ‘I and many others have been critical of Watford’s approach in the past, but it’s clear to see their owners really do know what they’re doing’

    But he never will.

    Surely - Mourinho is the other side of Jupiter these days, isn't he?

    Pleasantly surprised to see he has responded positively:

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Feel pleased that Watford are going well. Re member they are only opinions, and football proves us wrong a thousand times over and will always do so. Hopefully that will continue to be the case with Watford. </p>&mdash; Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) <a href="https://twitter.com/GaryLineker/status/1036337708438835202?ref_src=twsrc^tfw">2 September 2018</a></blockquote>

    Well that didn't work. Try this instead:

    "Feel pleased that Watford are going well. Re member they are only opinions, and football proves us wrong a thousand times over and will always do so. Hopefully that will continue to be the case with Watford."

    Does he need a WP to train though?

    Tbf he would be entitled to.

    I assume the club will at least have some sort of assurance that a WP will be granted, just not the timeframe of it. Admittedly I don’t know that and it’s just my opinion - but Brighton signed Percy Tau from a club in South Africa knowing they wouldn’t get a WP this season, but Hughton said he was excited to see him in training before getting him out on loan. Subsequently they found out he wasn’t even allowed to train and he was loaned out quicker than planned. So if Penaranda has been training, I would believe a WP or relevant passport is coming. I also think he’d have been loaned out again if there was any doubt.

    Wow, fair play to him. I can only assume he’s got quite a lot stick about stuff he’s said in the past to come out and say that.

    Probably crapped himself when he saw the shots of Elton so happy and realised he could be on the wrong side of a sudden change in people’s opinions about us.

    Well deserved. I had my reservations about Javi last season but going in to this year I was happy to have some consistency. Turns out he offers a lot more than just that!

    And great to see such a team spirit in those photos too.

    Lineker is a shallow man who spins like a weather vane.

    Please disregard his blather.

    Excellent point.
