It was no surprise that Sean Dyche was given a warm reception when he returned to Vicarage Road for Burnley’s 1-1 draw against Watford yesterday and the Clarets boss revealed he hopes to return to Vicarage Road in the future to watch a game with his children.

The former Hornets player, assistant boss and manager said: “I hope that I did some good things here from my time in various different roles, I left on good terms if you know what I mean. I take great value in that. One day in the future, whenever that is, I’d like to bring my kids down to watch a game and it’s always more comfortable if you can say hello and have a smiley face on.”

During his time as Malky Mackay’s assistant and then manager, Dyche was used to patrolling his technical area in front of the derelict East Stand.

A significant part of that has now been demolished to make way for a new structure and Dyche, who was Hornets boss under Laurence Bassini, remarked pointedly: “I don’t think it was the stand that I was told that was going to be built many moons ago. I’m not quite sure it’s the all-singing all-dancing stand.

“I see the south-west corner’s getting some kind of movement. I must say it’s a considerable time later though because everyone was expecting it to be done a year-and-a-half ago, weren’t they?”

Give the job to Sean in the summer, he will sort the slackers out.

Technical ability, physical presence, consistency and motivation will get Watford into the premier but not with an Italian manager.

Before he has a dig at the new stand he should sit the the away end at Turf Moor.

Re the stand, at least we will have a new stand for 2014/15, the plans of Simpson Baz etc were pipe dreams and if it were not for our present owners still would be.

Sean is a top guy, but his involvement is now history and should remain so. Good luck in the Prem next year assuming Burnley get there, which I hope they do. Sean has shown that with the right mix of team spirit and skill you can over come financial restraints and not paying decent footballers ludicrous salaries. Not sure, however, that you can stay in the Premier League with the same philosophy.

Sean is gone. After a rather difficult start at WFC, Sean has continued to prove himself as a class manager. With all respects to Burnley and the job that he took after WFC dumped him, Sean maybe destined to bigger and greater things. Good luck Sean!

I think he is entitled to a dig here and there he was not given a chance and lived on broken promises under the previous regime, he is now on the verge of taking a team no one gave credit a chance into the Premiership. So I suggest you watch out for the salt your putting on your corn flakes for the reason your so bitter and twisted to someone who did good by this club 100% when he was here and still speaks well of.

Personally I don't think he is entitled to have a dig. We gave him a good reception when he came back - we gave him his big break, its only of the back of that that he got the Burnley job. The new owners where entitled to go the direction that they wanted to, and Sean has done ok out of it, so why have a pop at us now just because he is riding the crest of the wave at the moment.
The league is littered with similar types, Phil Brown, Boothroyd, Owen Coyle - who all got a big to big for their boots. Look at them now.

So careful Dychey - you just worry about you own wooden -seated firetrap stands mate, and we'll get along just fine

He done ok with us , He finished 11th and to be honest some of the football was not great , There was a moan at first but I didn't hear many moans when zola got his team right and we played without doubt the best football we have ever seen at the vic last year. Dyche smiles a lot but on night of the tales from the Vic had a poke about the pozzo takeover and how their model is not right for Watford FC , Right for other teams but not Watford FC. He has got very lucky this season with not many injuries until last 6 games so good luck but no need for the little digs. So I suggest corbindallas that you take off your rear view glasses and look at our future
