    I did see the powers at be watching and shaking their heads and thought his time is up.
    We had a makeshift defence out and to try and defend a one goal lead seemed odd.

    With all the redundancy pay we shell out to managers perhaps it would be better spent hiring someone better and do a long term job.
    Looking back it was stupid to let Dyche go but I think he was not happy with the new set up.
    Hey onwards and upwards/downwards - delete as appropriate!

    With regret, Watford Football Club confirms the departure of Head Coach Quique Sánchez Flores.

    "Quique is a man of great integrity and it was clear how much he wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately results have dictated our decision," said Hornets' Chairman & CEO Scott Duxbury.

    "The appointment of a new Head Coach is imminent, and with nearly two-thirds of the season remaining, we will provide all the support necessary to make the coming months successful."

    No further comment from Watford FC will be made until a new Head Coach is announced.

    Watford’s board started interviewing candidates last week and it is thought that Hughton has a good chance of being given the job. Hughton would offer Watford stability after a troubled spell. The 60-year-old is respected within the game and he did well at Brighton, winning them promotion to the Premier League in 2017 and keeping them safe from relegation for two seasons. The Guardian.

    I agree with the sentiment of the long term appointment, but not that it was stupid to let Dyche go. The football played by Burnley is horrible to watch, and as a season ticket holder I would hate to watch that every week. But the football we played under Zola, who followed Dyche, was probably the most enjoyable as a fan since the GT period in the 80's.

    CH , he’s a nice guy , but like every hired hand , no security under pozzos regime .
    Has he the tools to survive this season , probably , will they sanction investment for a long term plan , probably not .Seems a very ruthless and limited tactic , and if the trap door isn’t avoided , could see a real collapse at every level .

    The football played by Burnley under Sean Dyche is adapted to the strengths of the players they have available Golden - we do not know what Sean Dyche would do with a decent budget. Unfortunately our new manager will inherit an aging, unbalanced squad with no 'team' identity, and possibly the worst medical team ever.

    Joka-esque going forward... miserly in defence, something that wasn't in his philosophy.

    Who would've thought that a rimjob 4 1/2 years go could end up being the key to your survival.

    When Nigel Pearson was appointed manager of Watford, he became a figure of ridicule, and not for the first time in his career. And I have to be honest and say, I joined with that way of thinking, it was surely a sign of pure desperation that a club that had already canned two mangers by December was turning to a man who was seemingly one part passionate to two parts volatile. No way was this go to pan out well! Yet, now just over one month later, I know it feels longer but its not! He is getting the absolute maximum out of his squad. Gone are the cliques and the moans, along with the ill discipline & awful displays. And in comes the sort of form that sits at the top of the table & a lot of smiles from players who not that long ago were planning their escape.
    Saints & Leicester fans shouldn't be too surprised seeing this pan out as it has so far, as we were both touched by the most miraculous of escapes with NP at the helm. But time seems to enjoy forgetting him, unless he is being facetious to a journo or pinning a player to the touch line! His reputation seems to travel far quicker than the man himself, for all the wrong reasons. And today, I wanted to put that right, because I was one of the judgmental many, who wrote him off without consideration, when in reality he has achieved far more in keeping clubs safe from the drop than all of the usual multimillionaire's like Pardew, Hughes, Pulis, Sam & Harry.
    He harnesses a respect from honesty and hard work, that seems unusual in the modern age. I remember stories from our dressing room, of players being ripped into for mistakes, but rather than sulking they worked hard on improving. As a result of that, the group benefited. It's not rocker science, but it is rather impressive. I'm pleased to see him doing well, and hopefully, his is the stock that stops the usual suspects from resurfacing. Well done Nige, and thanks again for 2008.
    (with 16 game left, there's obviously the chance for things to change, but I felt he deserved a mention for what can only be described as a stunning turnaround in form)

    Played well. Great clearance at the death to stop them robbing the result.

    Hello, HR. Saints and Sheff Utd both remind me of Cloughie’s Forest. I say this from a distance, and am happy to hear your closer view on this, but, at the start of the season, I thought both teams would be in trouble. Are both teams more than the sum of their parts (as were 1970s Forest)? Is it largely down to management excelling at bringing out the best?
