Me too, maybe after Brendan gets poached by Barcelona after we beat them in the Champions League final in 2023. 

He is doing well at Watford!

Why? He was brilliant for us, a legend. But we have moved on. 

I was just joining in with the Ex-Manager talk, i forgot to quote the post i was hoping to refere this to.

 

as such my post seems a little out of context.

 

but having said that, never say never!

He has definitely got them going. He was exactly what was needed. Listening to Huth on radio 5 he spoke about his disciplined approach - something that had been lacking with more recent Watford head coaches?

i have watched Watford only second to Leicester this season and there is no way they should be where they are with that squad.

 

they was unlucky against Liverpool (as everyone is) they totally bossed Villa off the pitch.

 

they just needed, as you say, someone to kick them into shape.

Happy if Watford take points of teams around us, otherwise I couldn't give a toss how he does.

Trouble is with Maguire, and paying that sort of money for any player, you expect a great great player..... he isn't that and never will be. Van Dijk cost Liverpool £75m but he is class and without him Liverpool struggle, he's the type of player that makes the other centre back look decent. I think Carragher described him as a "big brother" type which is correct. I saw it in Huth and I see it in Evans here.

 

I think Man Utd fans thought they were getting their Van Dijk, or their new Vidic/Ferdinand/Stam but Maguire isn't on their level. They still need an actual World Class centre back, which we've come to learn that they always have (I mentioned the likes of Vidic and Stam there).

Just listening to the Friday Night Social on Radio 5. 2 of the 4 pundits on the show picked Leicester out as their tips to win the Cup. What a time to be alive!

It would be an incredible season if we had a run in the FA Cup as well. No reason why we can’t, especially with a bit of luck in the draw. 
 

 

Can’t wait to get beat tomorrow now lol

Yeh, bottom of the prem, lovely stuff. 

He's never ended a season bottom of the prem so that's weird.

Man Utd obviously don’t scout players properly then. Surely if you’re gonna hand over 80 million quid, you’d do a bit of research to see if the player is any good and fits your needs. Their scouts only needed to read a few posts on here to realise he wasn’t exactly a speedboat when it came to turning. It’s like they look at the price and say he must be good if that’s how much money they want...and that’s it!

I think Maguire will look snd play better in a better team. If we still had Maguire we would still be second in the table snd he would get plaudits (with Evans) on our excellent defence.

Soyuncu has definitely won us a few more points this season than what we would’ve had with Maguire at the back, but slab head wouldn’t look so useless in this team tbf so I get your point.

Maguire has zero protection for his midfield, no senior/fit left back and a team trying to play higher up the pitch against lower opposition when they can’t
