Watford

Arsenal
Martin Keady - Nov 8, 2021

Almost every successful manager can identify a turning point in their career, when they saw their fortunes almost literally alter before their eyes, because they achieved an unexpected result or just benefited from a slice of luck. For Alex Ferguson, it was the winning goal by Mark Robins in an FA Cup tie against Nottingham […]

The Premier League season is really starting to take shape now; the underdog sides are thinning out, and the top teams are beginning to take centre-stage once more. There could still be plenty of shocks on the cards, however, and plenty of surprising Premier League predictions to make. Matchday eight includes some interesting fixtures, and […]

Liverpool against Watford
Adam Katcher - Oct 14, 2021

The last time it was Liverpool against Watford, they were invincible in the Premier League ahead of a trip to Vicarage Road. Watford sat in the relegation zone while the Reds had won their previous 18 Premier League matches and were one win away from claiming sole ownership of the “most consecutive Premier League wins” […]

Morten Thorsby
Adam Katcher - Oct 14, 2021

Claudio Ranieri has recently taken the reins at Vicarage Road following the sacking of Xisco Munoz. The Italian has already made his first signing at the helm, with free-agent Nicolas Nkoulou joining on a free transfer. However, as the transfer window is closed, Ranieri will have to wait until January to truly shuffle pieces to […]

Nicolas Nkoulou
Adam Katcher - Oct 8, 2021

With only four centre-backs on their books, the last thing Watford needed was an injury in the heart of the defence. Francisco Sierralta and Christian Kabasele picked up injuries against Leeds United, leaving the Hornets with just two fit centre-backs on their books at the conclusion of the match. Upon Claudio Ranieri’s arrival, the Watford […]

Ranieri Makes First Signing
Matt Jarvis - Oct 7, 2021

Nicolas Nkoulou has joined Watford, becoming the first signing for new manager Claudio Ranieri, who is looking to get the club’s season off the ground and steer the club away from the bottom half of the Premier League table. Watford Confirm Addition of Nicolas Nkoulou as Claudio Ranieri Makes First Signing 🤝 We are delighted […]

Claudio Ranieri
Adam Katcher - Oct 5, 2021

Under the management of Xisco Munoz in the Championship, Watford were able to easily play a possession-based style focused on intricate wide play (namely through Sarr). A similar style was attempted in the Premier League, despite going from one of the best teams in the second tier to one of the worst in the top […]

Claudio Ranieri
Nat Goodlad, Editor - Oct 4, 2021

Watford have confirmed the appointment of former Leicester City and Fulham boss Claudio Rainieri. The Italian, 69, replaces Xisco Muñoz, who was relieved of his duties yesterday after a 1-0 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday. Ranieri has signed a two-year deal with the Hornets and returns to management after leaving Serie A side Sampdoria […]

Xisco Muñoz
Adam Katcher - Oct 4, 2021

Another year, another Watford manager sacked. It’s the same old story, an unpopular one that has still yielded tremendous rewards for the Hornets. It is unconventional of an English side to sack head coaches this much, but between an FA Cup final and six Premier League campaigns in the past seven seasons, the cutthroat philosophy […]

New Watford Manager

The search for a new Watford manager has commenced once again. The last two years have seen the Hornets hire four managers on a permanent basis, and yet not one of them has managed to reach even ten months in the job. In what seems bi-annual event, the Hertfordshire side are once again on the […]

Premier League predictions
Tom Cunningham, Editor - Sep 23, 2021

We’re now six games into the Premier League season, and not many surprises have occurred as of yet. In fact, the only two shocks have been Brighton & Hove Albion’s revenge against ‘XG’ (expected goals), and Manchester City’s blunt nature going forward. Amongst that, however, we’ve seen an expectedly poor start from Arsenal, and a […]

Premier League predictions
Tom Cunningham, Editor - Sep 16, 2021

Last week’s Premier League predictions went so well, that we thought we’d give it another shot, hoping to once again be forced to turn down claims that we can see into the future. Fresh from European clashes, this week’s fixtures will likely be tighter affairs than last time out, but still expect plenty of goals, […]

Xisco Munoz
Adam Katcher - Sep 16, 2021

Many non-Hornet supporting football fans think of a managerial carousel when the word “Watford” is said. Despite how Watford’s managerial record seems excessively mentioned, there is truth in the sense that managers at Vicarage Road tend not to stay in their seat for long. Since the Gino Pozzo takeover of Watford in 2012, the Club […]

Premier League Players
Sam Pearce - Sep 11, 2021

This was after Premier League clubs unanimously decided not to release players for international duty to countries on the government’s red list. The FA and Premier League have come to an agreement with FIFA to change their decision. Unfortunately, they […]
