Empty words from Brendan Who

Empty words from Brendan Who

Some disloyal, inexperienced unknown with not a speck of dignity, integrity or respect left by the name of Brendan Who has told Watford fans his decision to join the club just 192 days ago "proved to be the right one"…

…and it will prove to be the right one in 12 months time when some Portugeezer gets a new job in the Premier and you up sticks without a thought from Berkshire no doubt to join him.

Brendan Who (aka the poor mans Ray Wilkins) also added he is "very proud of [his] work at Watford Football Club in what has been a short period" and stated "we became one club after all the turmoil…"

Oh get over yourself.

Through a statement on the official Hornets site, the little known Rodgers insisted he`d "never forget my walk around the pitch after the last home game of the season versus Derby County."

Well that`s interesting Mr Rodgers - as we`ve "forgotten" you already.

You might believe that "we are now on different journeys" Rodgers but our paths will cross (no doubt yours will go sideways and backwards and sideways again) and you will be rightly boo`d from pillar to post.

Your words of thanks mean nothing to us. They are worthless - just like your dedication to the cause and warcrys of loyalty.

Bring on that fixture list.

Can't agree with you. The only obligation any footballer or manager is to do a job for the club they're at. As far as I can see, he's done that. You were shocking when I saw you this year, yet you ended up just a place below us. Move for more money and a better job? You'd take it too. Don't tell me you wouldn't.

Is it fair to say Watford fans aren't too pleased Rodgers has gone to Reading?

You could say that. I agree with the Dr completey. Anything he ever achieved in football was down to us, and I hate to say it, but Graham Simpson appointing him. We 'made' him, and he's not even made to be honest after 6 or 7 months in charge. Does he really think that is the way to treat a club that gave him his real break in football, and does he think it is any way to treat the fans, to tell us he 'loved' the club, and was '100% committed'. Another Lee Cook as far as I'm concerned, I hope he gets dogs abuse when he comes back. The thing that gets me the most, is all that publicity crap at the end of the season, hugging the Russo's on the pitch etc, and now he's effectively stabbed them in the back. I'm fuming.

Well said Auckland Owl, finally a bit of perspective. LOL at all the bitter Watford fans. He took the Watford job under false pretences, as he was told there were more resources available than he was given. The people that brought him in then left and there was talk of him being replaced, but he stuck with it. He did a good job taking you away from the relegation zone. He was only rewarded with a rolling contract, he wasn't shown enough loyalty to be given a proper contract so there's no surprise that given the chance he left. Evrything was done by the book. Rodgers said he was commited to Watford, while he was there, BEFORE any approach. Reading made an approach, Watford bit their arm off for the £500,000, Rodgers left. Nothing sneaky, illegal or immoral about it. I just don;t understand the overeaction coming from some of the Watford fans.

no dis respect..but its easy for an outside fan to come and say we should not be bitter,the fact is,rodgers has left us for dead..and i have concerns now,about the squad on a full scale..we are left short partically in mid-field with o'toole,williamson,and eustace future unclear..its been obviously clear to most,that jack cork was going out on loan elsewere,tamas prisken who knows,and we still got dead weight with on a whole its maybe left us in a wright mess,what were brendon's planes regarding these players,and who was he looking to bring yeah i do fill bitter,not because brendon's gone of to reading,its the fact of the position we are left in,and who ever comes in now has got one hell of a job to come in too,with limited resources. i fill it could be another ray lewington era,trying to make a championship side,with a small squad. i just hope smithy stays..p.s wendesday were pretty shocking too

Interesting to see that Madjeski has just stated that Rodgers will have to use all the raw talent in the youth team at Reading. Seems he won't be getting any cash to work with and will have to trim the squad. What price Liam Bridcott as his first signing anyone?

eldlive - four points off you suggests we weren't as shocking as all that, especially as we gave you a goal start at your place.

fair kop..aukland owl,you were a bit lucky on the first game,i give you that,a week or two later, i believe you guys got hammered by reading 6-0 and plymouth 4-0..and you robbed us in injury time 2nd time really in general you aint got much to shout about..
06/06/2009 15:43:00
As I've said a couple of times (before and since Buck's departure), I seem to have a different perspective to all this and we should stop this bitterness & whinging asap. For god's sake, he saved us from relegation, but has now gone to Reading and left us with a few quid. End of story. Let's wish him farewell (I'd also say good luck) and move onto the next Watford manager, please!
