What a basket case club. Even Pep or Klopp would only last a few months
Actually feel a bit for the fans, bought by a bunch of idiots....... If you've got Abramovich levels of wealth maybe you can be that trigger happy, but for a club with the resource of Watford, it's crazy as are their ridiculous expectations.

Why would any manager contemplate it, except when desperate and out of work (cue Chris Wilder)

9th with every chance of being in the promotion mix and still fired, utter madness.

My two neighbours are Watford fans - next door, and next door to him.

I stopped taking the piss out of them a long time ago. It's not funny any more. I genuinely don't want them to suffer any more.

Unbelievable if true. More managers than hot dinners. Why would anyone want to be the manager there?

A couple of years of wages for a couple of months of work... surely everyone wants that.

You should only be allowed a max of two managers in a season. If you've already sacked one, you should be forced to stick with the other until the end of the season.

If you've had one poached (like us), then you should be protected from it happening again.

We have player transfer windows, why not managerial?!

EDIT: This is their 20th manager since June 2012. TWENTY?!!?! EDIT TO THE EDIT: I included caretakers, but still.
Great shout re transfer window applying to managers as well !

Chris Wilder has apparently agreed a contract for 2023.

Who's going to take the remainder of the 8-9pm timeslot is anyone's guess though.

I would! I'm retired now, but I think I could cope with a few weeks of the crowd screaming "You don't know what you're doing" on £50K a week! Plus a pay off when sacked.

Who knows? - they might even get a point or two whilst I was in charge (not necessarily because of anything I did of course!)

That GT49er is clueless, looks totally out of his depth, doesn't even like Elton John. he has to go

I've said it before: at Watford 'Manager of the Month' isn't an award, it's a job title.
Indeed. I wonder who will win this year's Manager of the Season award at Watford.
