    I honestly think the atmosphere will be directly linked to the positivity of the selection, tactics and performance.

    I'm glad they've confirmed it. Means he can be given a proper goodbye on Sunday rather than it being left as the worst kept secret in the land.

    I know all about the official statement but I understand it's far from decided if Quique is going to leave.

    Thank you, Quique.

    I don't know whether this is the right decision or not. We've been pretty rubbish in the 2nd half of the season, but only due to the exceptional standard set in the first.

    However regardless of that I've been proud to have Quique as our manager the last year, he accomplished more than was asked of him and always came across as a gracious, learned and confident leader whenever I saw him interviewed. Many of the players say he's the best they've worked under and he's been a steady, stable and safe pair of hands in what could have been a turbulent opening season.

    All the best Quique, thank you sir. Wherever you go next will be privileged to have you.

    I really hope the 1881 start the QSF song right from minute 1 on Sunday.

    He's not ruling out moving to Leeds...come on Quique you can do better than that.

    And here come all the "pundits" saying how stupid this decision is even though they have no idea how our club is ran.

    Thanks Flores! Prepare for the stick that's coming our way now from all and sundry.

    At least we can reclaim our rightful title of "Everything That's Wrong with Modern Football"! Looking forward to the deluge of criticism from pundits whose analysis never extended past "15 new players, Ighalo and Deeney are a good partnership"...

    We have had a fantastic season and achieved what we set out to do, however there has obviously been some problems somewhere behind the scenes and we have stuttered somewhat at the end, next season we start again with the same intention of staying up!

    Even though I agree with the decision to get rid of him, his press conference just made me cry.

    QSF said in his press conference there was a difference of opinion of how the season went. Ray Wilkins on the tele summed it up for me when he said he sometimes finds owners baffling, Flores has been a breath of fresh air he says, he's kept Watford up, and yet he is leaving he says.

    "I can take forward the experience I’ve learned this year," he says. But he doesn't seem to be a very quick learner. Next time, please, if something isn't working, try something different.

    We couldnt have hoped for a better manager for the first season promoted. Playing ultra defensively was absolutely the right way to ensure we stayed up. And the fact that he was charming and hunky was a nice bonus.

    I am as happy as a pig in **** that he'd gone though. But I wish him all the best at his next job, and feel desperately sorry for whatever set of fans is going to have to put up with his football. It's beyond grim to watch.

    If anyone's bored have a look at the comments section on MOTD's FB page. Quite amusing.

    I've had a productive morning tearing my hair out whilst Swedish Man United fans tell me my club is a disgrace and should be relegated because 'little old Watford' are entitled and stupid for sacking a man because of a small slump in form in the 2nd half of the season

    That statement was telling and reaffirmed my thoughts on the QSF situation.
    Completely the right decision. Cue everyone not watching Watford recently/on a regular basis comdemn the Pozzos for making this decision.

    Good luck Quique and thank you for a truly memorable season. Should get a good send off v Sunderland.

    thank you quique for using the same frustrating line up week in week out when it clearly wasnt working

    Good luck to him. Succeeded when supposed experts didn't give us a chance. Got us organised and difficult to beat. The last few weeks have not been great but the rumours will not have helped. Hopefully everybody will give him the ovation he deserves on Sunday

    The comments on the MOTD page are hilarious. People who don't watch Watford and don't know about the club should stfu. Unbelievable that pretty much all of them want us to get relegated for sacking a manager, thinking they know more than the owners.
