    Backing a manager, giving him time to implement his plans and reaping the rewards now feels so alien as a Watford fan.

    Let's not forget the hire and fire strategy had been effective for years until it wasn't. It is encouraging that the club eventually seemed to realise that (even it if took 3 years longer than it should have).

    That said, I still think his time is up. Time for a fresh voice?

    ‘Around 3 weeks…’

    Mine and @reids interaction was on Nov 1st. (By which point Vio had been in the door for at least - week already)

    Leventhal on the ball with the non-exclusives again.

    The man’s got us winning 5-1 away with a midfield trio of Livermore, Kayembe and Kone. Imagine being told that back in August or September.

    The corners are significantly better in quality and repeatedly more dangerous looking recently.

    I make him the 9th longest behind Robins, Lowe, McKenna, Tomasson, Carrick, Corberan, Rosenior and Wagner according to the list on the BBC website
    Still impressive since he has only been in the job 7 1/2 months.

    Oh yes I forgot about Wagner, expect V.I. will see out a few of those sooner or later!

    I thought he’d be a total disaster as Head Coach with a horrific style of play.

    Clearly I know nothing.

    I shall keep my (wrong) opinions to myself in future.
