Aidy Boothroyd is the first to admit he has made mistakes this season - so much so he has promised to be a far more relaxed manager of Watford for the rest of the season.
The rigours of the Premiership season and the fight against relegation had begun to affect his home life. But yesterday, in a public show of his altered image, Boothroyd turned up for a press conference with his seven-year-old son, Nathan, to open up on some home truths.
Asked why his son was at work with him, Boothroyd replied: 'It's February half-term and I didn't see much of him in January, and I just want to see him for a little while.
'In my willingness to want to win and to find an edge I have probably not been the best person to live with. But that is probably what I would like to change.
'Your family are the most important things and to be so intense that you take your work home can be a problem.
'If there is one thing I would want to change, it would be that I could be better at switching off.
'That's something you probably have to go through to get better at your job, better as a dad and husband and everything else.'
Boothroyd, though, seemed keen for his admission not to find its way home to his wife as he jokingly instructed Nathan afterwards, 'Don't tell your mum I said any of that!'
I have an idea, lets get Nathan into management early, let him run the Under-19s or something. I know he is only seven but who said you can't win anything with kids?
