If Watford do decide they want to hire Oscar Garcia as Beppe Sannino's replacement, we have been told they will face competition from two other clubs for the Spaniard's services.

Sannino resigned from his position as the Hornets' head coach yesterday but his future had been in serious doubt for several weeks.

The Golden Boys have held talks with a number of candidates in recent weeks and we understand there are currently three men in the frame.

One of those is ex-Brighton & Hove Albion boss Garcia but we understand the 41-year-old is also in talks with another Championship team, believed to be Leeds United, and a Spanish side.

Former Newcastle United and Norwich City boss Chris Hughton was close to landing the job a couple of weeks ago but we were told he is no longer in the running.

Likewise, we believe ex-Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo was considered but is not in the frame.

Watford have almost two weeks until their next match due to the international break but ideally the club want to make an appointment before the end of this week.

For me the best football ever seen at the club was under Zola,would be lovely if he came back. Maybe with an assistant that did defensive role perhaps. But wish Beppe good luck for the future, he had headaches pleasing all the squad clearly.

As I see it - its not a black or white case with Frank being right of wrong. Clearly there were problems behind the scenes that he properly reported upon. For me, he wouldn't leave the story alone (like a dog with a bone) and if there was a chance of the club coming through their problems it wasn't going to happen with his constant articles highlighting the unrest. Its a bit like when you keep picking at a scab (as much as you like doing it) it will never heal.

One of those press being the atrocious Jeff Powell, still bitter that his mate Bobby Moore didnt get the Watford job he was "promised". Even more bitter that GT got the england job ahead of Venables who he tirelessly promoted through the Daily Mail.

Whoever it is, let's just hope the Pozzo's take advice this time. They've transformed the club on and off the pitch but their track record on managerial appointments isn't great, is it? Sack the best man for the job (who then goes on to clinch promotion elsewhere with a far cheaper, inferior squad), appoint and subsequently lose a globally-respected footballing icon, then compound that by hiring some unknown bloke who can't speak English. At least Elton was humble and smart enough to consult experts before leaping in, hiring Bobby Moore and no doubt suffering the consequences.

Not a bad shout leavesdenorn, I think he's done wonders in all aspects of being a manager/coach. He could probably handle our mixed clans of a playing squad better than most aswell.

Trouble is, he left Burnley and returned to the south coast to be with his family and he won't uproot them. Shame really.

Personally i'm not being inspired by all the names being bandied about and i do wonder how much treading water we will experience results-wise with a new coach at the helm.

It's getting to the stage of 'anyone bar Galli' for me. Great player but not enough 1st team coaching experience.

Don't think family will be a problem - the guy is from Chesham. And Watford - Bournemouth is a lot shorter than Burnley - Bournemouth.

Would be a good move but doubt he would leave Bournemouth right now - again, perhaps if this had all happened in May then we would have had a good shot. Now we need to pick up a manager that no other club wants.....

Can’t see why nobody hasn’t mentioned Eddie Howe of Bournemouth. Young, his team play exciting football & he speaks the local lingo…………Onl


y problem is he will cost a few ££’s
Not a bad shout leavesdenorn, I think he's done wonders in all aspects of being a manager/coach. He could probably handle our mixed clans of a playing squad better than most aswell.

Trouble is, he left Burnley and returned to the south coast to be with his family and he won't uproot them. Shame really.

Personally i'm not being inspired by all the names being bandied about and i do wonder how much treading water we will experience results-wise with a new coach at the helm.

It's getting to the stage of 'anyone bar Galli' for me. Great player but not enough 1st team coaching experience.
Of the names banded about I'd go for Garcia. I thought Brighton would really struggle after Poyet left, to get them into the play offs again was a great achievement. Totally different character to Saninno, certainly not a hot head. My only concern would be that he has a history of walking away from jobs.

I can't understand all these posters saying that they want Fillipo Galli. He was probably one of my favourite Watford players ever but that doesn't mean he'll be a good manager. He's been responsible for Milan's youth team for the past few years but I'm not sure that is sufficient experience to take over a team in the Championship (which he has little experience of, except 1 season 6 years ago) . Think it's far to big a risk at this time.

If the players hadn't saved their worst performance of the season for Wembley GFZ would've taken us to the Prem, plus we've played by far the best football in years under him. With a defensive coach I feel it'd be ideal......but will NOT happen. Just my opinion, surely I'm entitled to that?

At least GFZ was far better at man management because that seems to be the issue.

Garcia did ok with a Brighton side inherited from Gus but I get the impression from the few Brighton fans I know that they weren't totally convinced by him and I suspect he would depart suddenly.

Not really impressed with any of the suggested names but I do think somebody with decent experience - Galli was a fantastic player but he doesn't have any experience other than coaching at youth level.

We have a great squad of players and it is up to them (especially the ones that wanted Sannino out) to work their socks of AS A TEAM for the new manager whoever it is.

I get the impression that it is also going to be a difficult job to take on because the manager (?head coach) does not necessarily have as much say in matters than at some clubs. The problem of keeping this massive squad happy without rotating the players unnecessarily is still going to be there.

Tony Pulis would be great if we had a different management system.He would exact discipline from this squad in the right way. Also very good at measuring the ability of a squad and getting it to play to its strengths. Well capable of taking us up and also maintaining us in the premier. However, he wouldn't be given the control he would ask for,sadly. I'd trust his judgement before Nan'is any day.

Just my opinion, surely I'm entitled to that?[/p][/quote]The last 15 games under Zola were dreadful and we went into that play off after a run of poor league results. A step backwards having him back unless he was working with somebody who knew how to get us defending properly![/p][/quote]So winning at Hull was dreadful?[/p][/quote]....and at Leicester in the league...and Leicester home in the playoffs ?? Don't think there are any great options if RDM isn't in the running - I'd happily take GFZ back with an experienced no2/defensive coach. Mickey Quinn, not so thin

Sky Sports just reported McDermott is one of the managers being considered.

I would be happy. English with championship experience. Was successful overall at Reading and no manager will ever do well under Leeds current ownership.
Would rather have Gary Megson than him !!!

Roberto de Matteo. Did a decent job at the baggies. Are we now beneath him. Too small a club?
