Good news.. I hope..

Who can say how this will turn out. I watched a documentary on QPR about Fabio Briatore and it was good schadenfreude stuff but a lesson in what can go wrong with "white knight" takeovers. I remember another Italian "Vialli" with a high spend high wage Vegas model. So be careful what you wish for. I think Watford's academy model will go out the window now. I hope Dyche find's a club that values the undoubted talents he has.

Watched the QPR documentary too - would love a WFC version for Bassini's reign. From what I understand, the Harefield Academy is one of the things which drew the Pozzo's to Watford as they are all about producing talent then selling it at it's peak value to re-invest in the future, much like we do now. The interest in Zola appears to be real however.
