In May 2017, they went into the season with Marco Silva, but he was sacked halfway through the season after reportedly having his head turned by Everton. Javi Gracia took over at Vicarage Road and did exceedingly well until he was also sacked this season. In their fourth season, they had a fourth manager in Quico Flores who was sacked after just 12 games. Since Dec 2019, they appointed 6 managers including Nigel Pearson, Vladimir Ivić, Xisco Muñoz, Claudio Ranieri, Roy Hodgson and
Rob Edwards. Rob Edwards is their current manager who joined the club in May 2023.
The Hornets – Watford FC squad history
Watford FC Football Club’s nicknames are The Hornets and that’s because the club play in the colours of a Hornet, yellow and black. There used to be a hornet on the club badge but it was replaced by a hart, which is an old-fashioned word for ‘stag’, which is a male deer.
The traditional rivals of Watford FC are listed as Reading and Luton Town. Compared to their rivals, they are doing very well, as they are higher divisions than both of them. This could soon change though, as Reading could still win promotion to the Premier League in 2017 if they win the Championship playoff final.
Team arena: Vicarage Road
Watford’s home ground is known as Vicarage Road. They have been playing at this stadium since 19222, so compared with some grounds it is quite old, although it has been redeveloped several times. There is a 23,700-seat capacity, which is relatively small for a Premier League side.
Watford FC Squad 2023
Watford have been disappointing this season as they are at 10th in the Championship so getting into the Premier League would be tough. They survived the relegation for 6 seasons before playing in 2023/24 as a Championship side.
If we go back to previous seasons, after losing their Premier League status in the 2023/22 season, they changed their manager in the summer of 2023 and replaced Roy Hodgson with Rob Edwards, who brought in some new signings.
However, Watford have a tradition of hiring a new manager every summer, so Roy Hodgson was replaced by Rob Edwards ahead of the 2023/24 season.
