He wouldnt have been sacked if we didnt turn his head though...
This is Watford we're talking about though. But the events that unfolded since definitely mean I don't want him as our manager if he can be affected that much.
Nah it's still a top 6. They've got the finances to pay players £300k/week and still have quality which is on a different level to us going forwards, they've just badly fucked up their midfield and defensive recruitment recently. They're only a couple of decent signings away from becoming a good side again and if Wenger goes they'll have the top coaches across Europe on a shortlist.
And if we can get a better manager and some decent signings, we too can challenge the top echelons again.
All ifs and ands. This is the second season they'll have finished way off the pace. If they don't watch themselves, they too could end up sliding down further.
