    Exactly. It's all I ever want. On paper the next three are very winnable before the international break. Passion, heart and desire can win games in this league but sadly it's not been on display very often this season.
    Honestly can't see anything apart from 3-5-2 and he needs to play our biggest scoring threats as the two upfront. JP and Sarr need to be the ones in the box finishing chances because the stats show they're our only goalscoring threats.

    Other clubs sign Managers.

    Watford just has new head coaches sign the visitors book and then give them a temporary paper pass and have some one else buzz them in. They can find their own place to hot desk from

    Do you reckon they have a box of returned branded training kit and just tell them to try it on and see what fits?

    If it's as astonishingly cheap, shytty and lazily designed as our 'travel range', they probably churn them out fresh on the hour.

    He's still on Boro's website, so seems the case:

    Considering he is from Watford and has worked for the club before, maybe he has hopes of sticking around regardless of how long Wilder stays? It'd have to be more appealing than being stuck up on Teeside.

    Given our recent injury and fitness concerns we could probably do with some improvement in the sports science department.

    Witb Boro being favourites for promotion outside the current top two let's hope this disrupts them a bit.

    I just been to an event where Harry Redknapp was in attendance, I had a decent chat with him, he knows Chris Wilder very well and reckons he should do well, he felt he was unlucky at Boro. He did say however that he doesn't know any Watford players personally.

    Regarding Slavan Bilic, he admitted that he doesn't know him well despite the West Ham link. I did describe the lack of enjoyable football under him.

    I did suggest it, he said he's too old for that now! He obviously never heard of Roy!

  13. “Should do well”?
    No use of the words “triffic” or “top,top,top” ? He clearly doesn’t rate him at all.

    Did he say Wilder was a "'triffic lad"?

    Players wear on match days so guess so.

    Probably appealing to a young market !

    We’ve got Super Chrissie Wilder.
    He knows exactly what we need.
    Three men at the back,
    Seven in attack,
    But won’t coach us in the Premier League.

    Very good. I would go with the latter over the former.

    Thereby cutting a significant portion of our squad out of the market, then.

  24. I hear the players are now being charged £2,500 for the full training kit. Some are electing to play in skins.

    Well done. Falling at the first hurdle against the worst side in the country at the moment.

    Pointless having him here already.

    Gino being so expert in player recruitment, long term planning and the business of football should do the decent thing and take over as coach. He surely cannot sack himself ?

    Be gone by Easter if results like that continue.

    The award for Scrotewear Hoodie of the Year 2023 goes to Watford FC. Soon to be seen on a Meriden, Oxhey estate up to no good.

    It’s like 10 minutes into All Quiet On The Western Front

    An orchestra plays a discordant sting that forebodes a string of losses and inevitable sacking

    An excited new coach steps to the front of the queue and approaches a wooden trestle table in an unnamed town hall

    The new manager is handed a freshly washed and now blood free tracksuit with someone else’s name tag still sewn in.

    the Watford head coach meat grinder continues at an unabating pace, so much human meat, grist for the mill

    There is an old joke about someone from India who loves English football because of the quirky names some teams have :
    Sheffield Wednesday
    Tottenham Hotspur
    Plymouth Argyle
    Watford Nil

    Ultimately the net result of appointing Wilder is just going to be flushing money down the drain paying off Bilic and his back room staff, and having to pay wilder for 11 games too. Probably enough money to fully fund the players canteen for a number of seasons.

    Again it's not the coach/manager to blame, it's those cowardly coonts who put on the jersey. Simply unacceptable. Minus JP who actually showed he cared.

    I think the truth is actually somewhere in the middle. I don’t think it’s possible that we solely recruit cowardly players, I think that’s definitely an element, but I think we’ve created a culture where the players sign for us and huge malaise quickly sets in once they realise any hard work they put in will be fairly pointless, when they’ll probably have a difference manager shouting at them in 10/20 games. Any half decent players are also sold their next move as a reason for joining, so it’s just a terrible terrible culture.
