It's back again

Well the football season in the lower levels kicked off this weekend. Once again due to tv coverage not all at 3pm on a saturday, must not grumble too much as tv puts a bit of money our way.
Since May Watford have lost their manager of 3 months to Reading and a few players including the centre forward on the eve of the first game.
After saturdays 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers , who are a very good passing side, it looks like another struggle to stay in the division but I wouldn't expect anything else and at least I'm not a Newcastle fan.
Once again the Premiership bubble shows no sign of getting anywhere near the world the rest of us inhabit. The Chelsea wage bill alone would buy my club outright with a bit left over to rebuild the ground.
I am waiting for Charlie's premiership predictions for top and bottom before placing a bet as I was way out last season and he was pretty accurate.

Disappointing start to my team's season, going down to Leyton Orient at home. I hope this isn't the shape of things to come, not that Rovers have much of a shape....

Shock, horror you've just lost your striker too, Des. And to a fellow League One side!

Nick, were Watford pretty but toothless under Rodgers? Just wondering whether to take a few seasons off...

Gutted. That's it for the season then.

He bought in some good loan players, notably Jack Cork, from his Chelsea connections and some of our existing players looked better with the new coaching methods. No one could work out exactly what Frank Lampard senior's role was especially as he was at Chelsea games every saturday afternoon.
However few Watford fans will forgive him for the way he left, after expressing loyalty etc to the club that gave him his first managers job ,he had gone within weeks.
Still it gives us a new club to hate especially as poor old Luton have tumbled out of the league. It may be worth coming to Watford for the last home game of the season to see the reception he gets, assuming he still is the Reading boss.
