The Premier League was only some weeks ancient when, in the middle of a silent Saturday evening, Watford visible that it had gone its manager, Javi Gracia. He would be replaced, the club said, by his native Quique Sánchez Flores, who had himself been fired by Watford three years earlier.

Watford owned by Italy Pozzo family and controlled according to a model in which the manager is just a worker, not some gentle of all-powerful original leader raised defendant of short-termism.
It was not just that recent results had been unfortunate, but that they had been an extension of a fall that started months ago. Some fans originate the decision tender, some less so some thought it was correct, and some did not.
