Hmm, so no hope there then. It might take more than two years to empty out maybe 9 players who for different reasons will not be suitable for a club aiming for the top 6. That number includes Mirallas and Barkley who are good enough but do not want to play for us and the retirement of Rooney, Baines and Jags probably next season if not the one after. There is no quick fix and I think it is certainly too much for a manager on an 18 month contract. I predict 2 more seasons to get back to where we where, challenging for the top 6. Solid mid table under Sam, and then we will be juggling foreign managers' names again when he goes. Might be a problem for some if the handsome fella gets Watford relegated.
