Dyche Sacked By Watford

Watford this morning have confirmed that manager Sean Dyche has been sacked following the arrival of the Pozzo family as owners last week.

In the weeks leading up to the takeover there had been strong rumours that former West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola would takeover as manager should the Pozzo's gain control of the club.

Dyche had suffered a slow start to his managerial career at Watford but a very strong second half to the season saw him finish with a win percentage of 34.6% higher than previous boss Malky Mackay who was cherry picked for the Cardiff job last summer.

Dyche leaves with VitalWatford's sincere gratitude for such an outstanding job last season and we know it will not be long before a new club benefits from his enormous talents.

Its ironic when Dyche talked about Loyalty a few weeks back, he wasn't given the chance to demonstrate what he could do with finacial backing. I wish you well for the future.

Here here, Andy! He might not have been perfect but how many of our recent managers have left with the entire supporter base on their side? Reckon GT would have been the last. Extremely unlucky, and I certainly hope that Zola proves to be worth the hassle. Best wishes, Sean.

Spot on guys. Thanks Sean for all your service to Watford - you'll always be appreciated by the fans here - a great job last season. And Good Luck! I'm sure you'll pick up a decent post- there'll be a few available by the end of August for sure. You'll get a big round of applause when you visit us next.

And on to pastures new. No matter what our feelings for Sean today, the fact remains that our club has been taken over by a successful operation, who immediately have made a strong, clear statement of intent; (it took Bas quite a while to get anywhere near this.) Pleased to hear the Academy and East Stand are still part of the project and I like the firm objective of becoming an established Premiership side. That'll be difficult on crowds of 20k but it is exciting nonetheless. Just hope Zola can do the business. How ironic to have been watching Vialli on TV a couple of nights ago. Here's to a better Italian Job this time eh?
