Relegation Redundancy Requests?

    In the sad and tragic event that Watford FC are relegated back to the Championship (for starters - see Ipswich, Charlton, Sunderland and Bolton who were all Premier League longer than us) there will be enforced financial cutbacks.

    It's always the backroom staff first.

    The £30 away tickets and subsidised away travel will go; most of the corporate hospitality boxes will be almost impossible to fill for your Brentfords and Prestons. The press interest will simply be the sarky Geordie kid that writes for the Wobby. I couldn't see Emma Saunders or Richard Johnson being kept on, for instance, sadly.

    So who can we afford to lose? Or who must we save no matter what?

    May I suggest the club start preparing by cancelling the apprenticeship of the childish idiot who runs the club Official Twitter feed? An embarrassing idiot never learns about taunting the opposition or Gary Lineker before matches?

    I'd save Messrs Affleck, Leventhal and Tales From the Vicarage (independent of the club I know) and support for The 1881 and Dave Messenger.

    This is a strange thread.

    It’s September.
    Season ends in May next year I think.

    More pressing things to consider in the gestation time for a new human baby (to make this an even stranger thread).

    I've heard Richard Johnson is already considering offers from Palace and Bournemouth for half time duties next season.

    Saw this coming a while back. Not such a strange thread now.

    What and who is going to victim of cutbacks?

    Get rid.

    sack the person who has started playing loud that depressing ambient loop before home games just to get us in the mood ...

    You mean Born Slippy? I'd prefer if they played the whole thing rather than a sampled loop...

    I wonder if Levanthal would lose his job at The Athletic since they focus on each PL club. Someone asked him during a Q+A what would happen to the Watford coverage if we went down and he said it was "too early to discuss that yet"

    Foster, Femenia, Holebas, Cathcart, Dawson, Doucoure, Chalobah, Gray, Deeney, Success and Moog would be my choices.

    Our strikers are already redundant.

    You'll be back in a few years if the worst happens! Don't listen to offers from that bloke in the hard-hat though.

    Not actually a subscriber to be fully down enough with the structure of their coverage, but I assume that they would move him to a more general role? They must have contingencies for this kind of eventuality already, unless they really are run by as rootin'-tootin' dumbass yank cowboys as I have always imagined they are.
