    Hey, directly funding Xisco's pay off isn't 'no reason'.

    Yep, agreed. Apart from I had a moment of clarity and will not now be buying the book at all.

    Seems the signed copy was just a sticker in the book anyway!

    If you buy from the Hornet Shop and pay double, that extra tenner will pay for another CB in the January window. Your club needs you, so do the right thing.

    As the average cost of a centre back is £17.83m, the means the club only has to shift just over 1.783m copies of the book.

    Yes, but the average cost of a Watford CB is £17.83, so they only need to sell 2 books and will have change left over to go towards a new CF.

    I bought a signed copy online from Waterstones (I had built up a bit on their loyalty scheme). Discounted to £16.99 and free postage or collect from the Watford branch.

    I read my copy in two sittings over the weekend, which probably goes a long way to informing how much detail there is.

    Pretty disappointing. Very stale, and 'by the numbers'. For someone who prides themselves on being outspoken, he really doesn't have much to say about his run ins with Mazzarri/Ivic.

    So that I don't have to, can someone who has read Troy's magnum opus post the key points. Many thanks

    Create a false demand, sell many hundreds (a couple of thousand maybe?) @ £20 each, don't indicate when the number of signed copies sell out (like the website does with other products) and then claim 'unprecedented demand' a couple of days later and say they'll send us unsigned copies hoping we won't bother cancelling. Underhand or naive? Either way, Amazon it is.

    If you’re concerned at the club shops working practices, you probably shouldn’t look too closely at Amazon then….

    With both open to criticism, for me the price became the deciding factor.

    Every Christmas I get the latest Watford related book. All sit unread in some cupboard somewhere in the house. I think I've just found a runner up prize for the correct score competition.

    They’re selling signed ones in my local BP garage, the bloke behind the counter said they’re being pulped next week.

    Arsenal are weak.
    Van Dijk best defender he played against.

    I’ve downloaded the kindle version and programmed it to auto omit the words “to be fair “ and got it down to an easily manageable 11 pages .

    After expanding the word size to 3 words per line , I got it back up to the original page count and thus achieved the satisfaction of reading a whole book whilst experiencing a small fraction of the boredom .

    Maybe a passing mention? I honestly can't remember.

    One brief mention that we were going down the tubes under his ownership.

    Unused sub for Birmingham tonight. Amazing what an albatross he was for us when a bottom half championship team have worked out he is below standard.

  25. Yes. Says a lot that they were chasing the game one goal down to local rivals and they still didn’t bring him on. Yet he was expecting to start for us in the prem this season :)
