Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Watford are having a competition for which team can get through the most managers.  Don't understand why managers see it as an attractive job.

Apparently Managers wages over here are considerably higher than at other European Clubs even at Championship level. If the new Manager is on say £150K a year at his existing Italian club and is then offered £450K a year by Watford on a two and a half year contract then even getting sacked in six months is very lucrative. By crude maths they would walk away with around £900K (or six years of their current salary for doing nothing). Some may even take the job knowing they will be short lived and that could be their primary motivation which would perhaps also explain why they don't last long and so the cycle then continues.

Makes sense for the managers I guess...provided they're okay with having virtually zero job stability.

Still an idiotic way to run a club though IMO. Would love to see them drop out of the top 6 and finish mid-table now, just to spite the owners.

Any bets on Mikel Arteta seeing out the season?

Is it?

The Pozzo family have been relatively successful at Watford despite doing things in an unauthodox manner.

yet another in a long long list of crazy sackings at Watford. made worse for the fact its a recurring thing at this trigger happy  club but even more alarming is that its also not the first time that  a manager that had the audacity to not pick Troy Deeney in the starting line up has been dushed out the treatment of choice. the Bilic sacking was contencious but this latest Watford slaying is crazy and dispicable.

Depends what you call successful.

They've at best been a mid-table PL team and won no silverware. In the meantime they've gone through 12 managers in 9 seasons, sacking some when they've been in decent positions.

They had 4 different managers / head coaches one season and 3 last season. How is a team supposed to achieve any kind of stability or identity when you change managers that often?

Then you look at clubs who stick with their managers - even when relegated - and that continuity allows them to bounce back. Just look at Norwich.

I certainly wouldn't say the Pozzos have achieved any kind of success.

and tbf  Grimsbyboro DID SAY RELATIVRLY.

Relative to who?

They were promoted with Bournemouth and Burnley, they were relegated with Bournemouth, Burnley are still up there.

Neither of those clubs changed managers in that time period, was sacked Watford went through a million.

Howe left after the season ended.

Their high sacking rate hasn't made them any more successful than the teams they went up with, and they've been eclipsed by other teams that have been promoted since.

    • DZ has already hinted that Fry may be off, perhaps he’s one of the players that doesn’t want to be at the club. 
    • I feel sorry for Johnson, was playing really well before Christmas, creating and scoring. Loan players come in, he doesn’t get a look in and we are worse for it. Spence and Coulson often get called out, alongside the strikers.   I wouldn’t be surprised if Brit, Johnson, Akpom, Coulson and Fletcher are all pretty peed off and want away.  I’m still supportive of Warnock but he needs to take some responsibility. The loan signings seem to have disrupted the team spirit. Too many all at once? Too many straight into the team? He clearly doesn’t rate any of our strikers and Fletcher annoyed him getting injured again when he said he was fit and not signing a new contract.  Such a disappointing end to the season 
    • Just had a snoop in the Norwich club website to see if there was anything "official". Seems like it is an obligation to buy upon promotion rather than an option.
    • The last 4 years have been genuinely horrendous but I can’t agree that this is worse than it was under Pulis. I mean under Pulis there were times we played a flat back 5 of shotton, ayala, flint, friend, Saville. 4 plodders in midfield and Britt stood up top with literally no one within 50 yards of him.  At least this season Neil’s brought a bit of flair in general played people in their actual positions. Admittedly he appears to have lost his *** In this respect in the last few games. I’m not making a case for Warnock’s long term vision by the way, whatever the *** that is. Just that he is marginally less crap than Pulis.
    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
