LAST SEASON WAS… 

Irritating. Watford bought off to a unprecedented begin underneath Marco Silva, taking part in some good soccer and delivering some excellent outcomes. The Hornets had been as excessive as fourth within the desk after beating Arsenal and that was a good reflection of the start to the marketing campaign. Then the wheels got here off in spectacular style. Silva’s want to depart was extremely unsettling and kind evaporated virtually in a single day. The problem was exacerbated by a string of long-term accidents and the season ended up mirroring people who have gone earlier than: a superb begin adopted by a nervous run-in.

OUR BIGGEST HERO

In an extremely turbulent 12 months at Vicarage Street, Adrian Mariappa was an actual steadying affect, on and off the sphere. Accidents and suspensions meant he was known as on with regularity and he by no means let the Hornets down.

OUR BIGGEST VILLAIN

Marco Silva. I don’t suppose any Watford supporter would begrudge a head coach or a participant a transfer after a season or two of fine service, however to agitate for a transfer after a handful of video games was extraordinarily disappointing.

YOUNGSTER TO WATCH 

The teenager that has tongues wagging at Vicarage Street is Adalberto Penaranda. The 21-year-old Venezuelan has been marooned out on mortgage for the previous two season, with work allow points holding up his debut. These issues now appear to have been resolved.

MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER

Kiko Femenia arrived from Alaves to little fanfare however rapidly established himself as an important cog within the Watford wheel. A stable defender, he actually reveals his price when breaking ahead, doing so with function and tempo.

HOPES & FEARS FOR 2018-19

The large concern is a poor begin to the season. Since returning to the Premier League, Watford’s sturdy opening has ensured security with relative ease, however a failure to capitalise on a winnable run of video games on the entrance finish of the marketing campaign may imply a difficult 12 months. The hope is that with a strengthened squad and a settled head coach the Hornets can ship a extra constant displaying throughout the season.
