  • midds changed the title to The Managerial Merry-go-round: Munoz done at Watford

The thing is it works though, Watford have done this for years and it got them into the premier league where they established themselves for a few years before going down, but then now they’re straight back up and doing alright; all the while changing manager every few months.

 

Its a weird one because it’s not the norm but it has worked for them

Not when they went through 3 managers in one season and got relegated last time around.

Yeah I remember the “stability”’mantra being a thing just because SAF and Wenger happened to be generational managers. Chelsea sack managers all the time, and they win a ton. It’s more about a)who you get and b) having a very talented squad.

7 points from their first 7 games for a newly promoted club is more than acceptable. They probably have identified someone they think would do a better job more so than that sacked fella's shortcomings.

 

Not surprised from the club that had 3 managers in one season and still went down.

Yeah and even though they did go down the other year, that’s just one season, before then for years and now after, they’ve operated with the same premise of changing manager every few months and it’s worked, so pointless focusing on that one year it didn’t when for plenty of others it did and looks like it could continue to do so.

 

ManDoon is right, it’s all about who comes in and the squad and whilst Watford’s is nothing special they have a knack of getting enough out of them with a change of manager regularly.

 

It’s not for every one and as we’ve seen at loads of other clubs changing manager doesn’t always work, especially as regularly as they do it, but it’s clear that’s what the clubs vision is, they’re not interested in a Wenger/SAF type to create a legacy, they basically just want to stay in the Prem and have found a system that works for them, other than that one off season, but like I say they came straight back up and look alright this season.

 

Its fascinating really as it’s so different to everything we know, and in theory it shouldn’t work, but if everyone at the club is bought in on it, which I seems they are, I guess that’s why it does, they’ve had some random managers as well which is refreshing not seeing them work through the same old PFMs.
