Wonder how long he'll tolerate Gino's BS? He's hardly the calmest and most patient of folk is he?
Is this 100% confirmed?
No but the BBC of all places is running with it on their football news page.
It is official now.
18 month deal pending work permit.
Bilic woooah, Bilic woooah.
He comes from Croatia, he’ll ******* murder ya.
May as well get it ready a few weeks early…….
Didn't he once comment on how ridiculous our policy on sacking managers was?
Great minds think alike.
Lets see if we can sack him before he even steps foot at vicarage road
I think he'll last until the World Cup break, then he'll be gone.
Not a chance he lasts the season.
Sensible guy then.
He won’t last a minute with that kind of truthful attitude.
He may have done in a moment of madness. I imagine its a good gig for a manager, 18 month - 2 year deal, give it a half arsed go and get a nice big payout a couple of months later.
Will laugh my t1ts off if Liz Truss and Co now turn down his work permit request.
Official: Bili* Appointed Hornets’ Head Coach - Watford FC
Has anyone else spotted the quote regarding Bilic was directly from Gino Pozzo. Nothing from Duxbury. Now that is interesting
I actually enjoyed watching his WBA side. A real focus on Pereira at AMC and I can see João being perfect in that role.
4-2-3-1 suits the players we have at least. I'm cautiously optimistic...
Yes UEA did, post 1750 on the Edwards sacked thread....it does seem very odd....maybe he doesn't agree with the decision or maybe he's on his way too....
Gino throwing down some crumbs to the battered housewives in our fanbase.
The podcasters will lap up the 'improved communication' no doubt.
Pozzo speaks,now that IS a surprise!
At least Bilic has some provence.
As predicted Edwards didn't even last to his funny little song line.
I don't know what to think anymore.
So much for SEJ's words!
Good luck Slaven.
As long as not three at the back, I’m happy.
We have been here before so many times it’s getting tedious,I thought he did ok at West Ham, but then again I could be wrong I feel I’ve lost the plot and need a lie down!
But does Billic use a Manscaped pube trimmer?
Ha ha. Wonder if Edwards left a used one in his desk draw for Bilic.
Not certain Liz Truss will survive this weeks vote of confidence.
Next to a note stating, ‘Dear new coach, I’m afraid there’s no right backs left.’
Bilic really should be an upgrade on Edwards, but, you know... who cares?
Is this all true? I presumed he was finished as a manager (I have no clue when he last managed a team), but now you have given me great hope.
Some side in the Chinese Leagues. He moved back to the UK to be with his family.
Another 3 month cycle of starting Cathcart, Kabasele, Cleverly, Gosling before realising none of them are very good anymore and they are mostly over the hill so trying a different combination to cover their deficiencies but by then it's all too late and the players have stopped listening and then new manager time. Yay!
I think we need a @reids analysis to confirm.
But it looked quite fluid to me. When it works it is great, but in the PL it gets taken to bits.
We really need Imran Louza.
Any takers on him being in the role past January?
Just another guy who has taken the money without looking beyond his bank balance. It can't be about restoring his reputation, as to do that you actually need the basis of a decent team which we do not have.
Mind you it really is a win win for him, get paid hasomely whilst the **** shower assembled by Pozzo on the pitch fail, get sacked as Pozzo is too arrogant to see past his own failures and get a nice payoff.
We must be in the 10's of £m in settlements figures now
That's good enough for me. Plus he has experience managing Rolls Royce players, and was decent himself so they might respect him.
I doubt Edwards pushed it that much higher.
Probably fall out with Pozzo and co in weeks ..
Not sure if it'll help, but I've always thought he had a bit of a Rowan Atkinson look about him
His name is an anagram of "balls in vice", so that's something.
