    I can't even find a gif to demonstrate my feelings about this comment and the general direction that it means we are headed in.

    There's delusion and then there is this. I guess this is why he was hired. Absolute ******* yes man.

    Maybe he meant Gray and Deeney of 2013-16?

    But have you seen the videos the club have been posting this week? Cathcart firing in goals from every angle, Hungbo finishing in the top corner and Bachmann making brilliant saves, even putting back spin on the ball to stop it from going in. We're now f***ing brilliant. I've seen it with my own eyes.

    Don’t forget this season’s first rule of the club’s online updates though.

    Namely, that players featured then never turn up in the starting eleven for the next game.

    The three featured this week, that you just named, are likely to keep up this unfortunate sequence.

    It's propaganda of 1930s Soviet levels, but what else are they going to do - a video where they show a overdrawn bank statement, point out Masina is the only left back and that Gray is an absolute disaster of a footballer who doesn't care about anyone other than himself (set to some happy music)?

    Aren’t all the clubs the same really ?

    There is being positive. And then there is being an embarrassment.

    Agreed, social media makes me cringe watching Man United fans from Dorset calling Liverpool fans from Berkshire scouse b*****s and the liverpool fans responding with Manc b****** to people that have never been to Manchester.

    We always seem to still get Arsenal and Liverpool fans in WFC related tweets .

    A related phenomena was literally my first thought/what I said to my brother about the sickening strikeforce - everyone at the club is experiencing a terminal state of hypernormalization.

    That comment he made about Deeney and Gray being the best strikers in the division was certainly cringe worthy. It's like the whole squad and management at the club believe their own hype/confirmation bias. There is certainly no evidence for this type of hyperbole.

    Personally I don't have an issue with him saying that. He's got to get a tune out of them, and what's better than to hear your manager describing you as the best in the division. It's a vote of confidence and is designed to boost the ego. Not sure how gullible Deeney is, but I'm sure Gray will lap it up and take it at face value.

    If it relaxes them and puts them in a more confident frame of mind, then it's all good.

    And then see them trying and failing to locate said cities on the map. Club bookshop have a new item for sale.

    How much more boosting does it need ? It needs deflating. Get fit, score goals, stop your yammering on radio and do your job. Or leave the club this summer.

    I'm all for building confidence but at least make believable statements!

    Also, these two don't appear short of confidence and have rather large egos to go with their wage packets.

    Have you actually watched the video of the press conference?

    I don't think Munoz looks as if he even believes what he is saying when giving that answer. He also gives a despondent sigh before coming out with it.

    I don't think he has a clue what sort of manure is dropping out of his mouth.

    They might as well have appointed the late Margarita Pracatan.

    Amongst all the noise, the social media/internet presentation of Watford football club is for me the most annoying thing about being a fan these days.

    Slightly warming to him after this comment when asked about the Deeney challenge. He's having the time of this life!

    “He didn’t touch him – he touched the ball, no,” said the Spaniard with a smile. “No, I don’t think it was an action for a red card. I am happy with Troy because he was involved in all the action and this is good for the team.”

    Yeah but he doesn't give a **** about showing it. He just can't believe he's got the job and is having a bit of a laugh.

    Ok he's growing on me. Still acts like a competition winner and who knows what he was thinking playing Cleverley right wing and Sarr left wing but maybe all our bunch of prima donnas need is someone to be nice to them, clap and smile a lot, do some rondos in training and then they'll bother to put the effort in against a bunch of inferior players.

    Not to sure about his substitutions which often seem like they are being done the sake of it and not for any real tactical reasons? However I do like his overall enthusiasm as it seems to have rubbed off on the players.

    Lets hope this bubbly feeling around the place continues and all those bubbles don't start going pop :eek:

    Still feels like a nanny for the primadonnas, but can’t fault his results so far.

    Got it right tonight. Could tell he wasn’t happy first half. Sensible subs at the right time. Tonight let’s all have an xisco.

    I like that he subs players that are already on a yellow & walking a tightrope, rather than risk them getting sent off. It seems like the obvious & sensible thing to do, yet very few managers actually do it.

    No excuse really with 5 subs and 9 to choose from. But yes agreed at least he does it.

    I like what I’ve seen of xisco so far. Ok results have put my yellow tinted glasses on. The Swansea game was a bit soon yes he had the Norwich game straight away but as proved I think the Swansea fixture was harder. Towards the end of tonight’s first half he wasn’t happy and he was down screaming instructions motivating and getting his point across. I think the more time he has the better we will come. Can picture bigger clubs coming in for him a bit like Slither scenario if we go up and perform. (That’s if we keep him of course) the players look like they’re enjoying the game again I guess anything after ivic would be enjoyable. But for me he seems to be providing that vibe that slither brought with him.

    That's if he gets his coaching badges! Tbf, getting Slither was a bit of a coup, good spell in Greece followed by a bright if ultimately doomed spell at Hull, Xisco is still very much a baby when it comes to management. Good start from him so far, not reinventing the wheel, but getting results so far
