27th May 2015- Slavisa Jokanovic to leave Watford as head coach after failing to agree terms for a new contract

The saga of whether Slavisa would remain our head coach dragged on throughout most of May but it was on the 27th that newspaper articles started to confirm he was leaving. By the 28th the Independent said he had parted company with us in an article speculating on the new Sunderland manager. However on the same day the Watford Observer was still reporting that he was ‘almost certain’ to leave. Official confirmation from the club didn’t come until 5th June when Quique Sanchez Flores was announced as his replacement.

BHappy image It’s really not the old Wembley, is it? True, the old Wembley smelt of sour tramp when you got up close and it felt as though it might just fall down if everyone jumped at once…but not even the stale piss of a dozen generations could hide the essential romance of the place, the sense of that-happened-over-there history. This…well, it has the moneyed sheen and efficiency of an airport departure lounge. Any idiosyncrasies have been firmly ironed out by committee, any dark corners where you might be able to scratch your name for those who follow have been illuminated by an artful downlight. All trace of this game will have been wiped clean by the time you read this.
