Watford confirm the arrival of Ecuador's World Cup full back Juan Carlos Paredes

Watford Observer: Watford confirm arrival of World Cup full back Watford confirm arrival of World Cup full back

Watford have confirmed the permanent signing of Ecuador full back Juan Carlos Paredes.

Paredes joins the Golden Boys on a five-year contract from fellow Pozzo-owned club Granada, subject to international clearance.

The 27-year-old appears to have only joined Granada to ease through his move to Watford because he only signed for the Spanish side this summer from Ecuadorian outfit Barcelona Sporting Club.

The Hornets had been confident of securing his signature for more than a month and last week we reported how the terms had been agreed.

However, at that stage it was unclear whether he would be coming directly from Barcelona or via Granada or Udinese.

Paredes, who turned 27 last week, played every minute of his country's World Cup campaign, as they finished third in Group E.

The defender, who can play across the backline, has spent the whole of his career in his native country, also featuring for Rocafuerte, Deportivo Cuenca and Deportivo Quito, where he won the league title in 2011.

Udinese, who like Watford are owned by the Pozzos, had been keen on signing the player for more than six months and he reportedly attracted interest from clubs around Europe prior to the World Cup.

A great long term acquisition if we don't expect too much, too soon. Lots of changes for this guy, new Country, New Continent, New team mates. Does he speak English? If not that's something else to deal with. He must be given at least 6 months to find his feet, then he could turn out to be a really good signing. Welcome Juan Carlos.

Excellent news. The quality in this squad is unbelievable.

However, I am getting a bit concerned at the way we are conducting these deals. Why has the deal gone through Grenada? Following the Toszer deal it all looks pretty strange. I trust that the Pozzos know what they're doing and all is above board but I am sure that if this was happening at another club then we would be asking a few questions.

I was not at all optimistic about success last season after the playoff final defeat , we had a massive hang over.
This season i am certainly considerably more enthused about matters and after the first ten games would be disappointed not to be at least in playoff position.if come xmas we are still in that position then i believe
We will go the distance and get automatic promotion.
There is one position i am a little unsure of....The goal machine that is TD.
Personally i think he has proved himself to be one of the best championship strikers over the last 2 seasons ...all credit to him and the coaching staff. . remain to be convinced he has that little bit extra necessary to move up to the next playing level required in the premier league. I think the club will sell him in january if not before the season starts for 7 to 9 mio pounds and bring in someone who is capable of making that jump. Dont get me wrong TD has overcome shall we say set backs in his career admirably and i am very pleased for him...i just dont see that " little bit extra magic that is needed".

Precisely. It may have something to do with the new financial regulations in English football, or simply a more efficient way to operate regarding taxation and so on. I'm sure it is totally legit, however. The Pozzo's strike me as a very thorough family. As for other clubs, I couldn't really care less.

Abusing me because I don't rate parades won't retract all of your anti pozzo anti Watford comments of a month ago.

And I don't remember abusing you either!

Haven't heard from the 'bishop' for ages - thought he'd been de-frocked for misdemeanours with the choirboys!
Still, the women are taking over the bishopricks (excuse pun)
shortly aren't they?!

Nono. Just scurrulous rumours regarding the junior members of the cathedral....which prompts me to raise the question of our splendid academy.

I am convinced that the academies record since its incepption was a contributing factor persuading the news lords of the manor to sponsor such a worthwhile institution as our place of worship.

Whilst i have been intrigued by the new members of our staff arrining from far flung corners of the globe i am curious as to the prgression of
17 - 21 year olds in our fold. I cant help thinking that a regular series of league games will benefit the majority of scholars ,some will make the leap effortlessly....a number have proved capable in the past.

One other thing i think could benefit them and our ladies team would be to play all competetive games at the vic...i realise this might cause extra wear and tear to the surface but surely no worse than when those egg chasing infidels were rucking all over the place!

Well thanks croxley46 for the notice and i look forward to seeing you in the congregation possible when we entertain our visitors from our sister
Cathedral in italy. I must away because our verger Dithers ihas got himself in a right state because someone has been washing their smalls in the font.

Oh happy daze....COYH
