Watford looking for third manager this season already
Watford have had a dismal start to the Premier League season. They have already sacked their second manager of the season when they got rid of Quique Sanchez Flores after only 10 matches. Flores had only won one of the 10 matches he managed and could not reverse the early season form that Javi Garcia was showing before him. Watford are currently in last place seven points from safety after 15 matches
They played Leicester last night and after putting a good performance in the first half, they conceded in the second half to Vardy. They conceded another late on when they were pushing for an equalizer. They need to start to get results when they have the opportunities otherwise, they are guaranteed to go down.
It is a stark contrast to last season when they finished in 11th and got 50 points which was a big achievement. Additionally, they also made it to the FA Cup final which they were humbled 6-0 by Manchester City, but it was still impressive for them to get to the final in the first place. However, so far this season they have only been able to pick up 8 points after 15 matches.
Caretaker Mullins will be given the chance to show if he can steer the club into some sort of form, but the hierarchy have already started interviewing people for the job. Chris Hughton has been rumoured to be taking the hot seat for the Hornets, but their next appointment needs to be one that fits. This will the 11th manager that the Pozzo family hire since they took over the club in 2012. They hire and fire managers too often and need to find one that will bring stability and success at the club.
Even though last season they made it to the cup final and 11th place that was not even enough to keep Garcia in the position. Watford’s next three matches are Crystal Palace at home, followed by a trip to Liverpool and then a match against Manchester United which are difficult matches. The bosses at Watford will have to make a decision soon so the players can feel more stable and know who is going to be their manager if they want to have any chance of staying up.
