Watford terminate manager Sean Dyche's contract with immediate effect

What has been expected all week is now official - Sean Dyche is no longer Watford's manager.

The Hornets have released a statement on their website in the last few minutes confirming that Dyche's contract has been terminated with immediate effect, seemingly clearing the way for Gianfranco Zola to be appointed at Vicarage Road following the takeover by the Pozzo family.

The statement reads: "Watford Football Club confirms that it has terminated the contract of first team manager Sean Dyche with immediate effect.

"On behalf of the club, the Pozzo family acknowledges that Sean's positive contribution to Watford FC dates back long before his appointment as manager in June 2011.

"The Pozzo family also recognises Sean's impeccable conduct, representing the Hornets with honour and dignity at at all times.

"His achievements under difficult circumstances mean that he will be rightly be held in high regard by Watford supporters.

"Everyone at the club extends their warmest wishes to Sean for the future."

Dyche was appointed Hornets manager last summer after rejecting the chance to follow Malky Mackay to Cardiff City. Despite Danny Graham, Will Buckley and Don Cowie moving on - with Marvin Sordell also sold in January - Watford recovered from a slow start to the campaign to finish 11th in the Championship, their highest position for four seasons.

Disgraceful decision, but I guess that's football for you. I'm sure Dyche will go on a be a first class manager. I hope the new owners recognise their broader responsibilities. One less promising young English manager gaining valuable experience will ultimately do nothing for the national cause and let's face it we need all the assistance we can get in that department.

Not overly happy that Dyche has been sacked, but it was inevitable. I'm sure he will do well with his next project.

One thing i do like about Zola however is his presence, he was an incredible player in his day, and a huge name to have at the helm so hopefully that can attract some young talent to the squad, which is more than likely the Pozzo's strategy looking at recent comments.

Good luck to SD, he did awesome considering the situation of the club, and hope all the best for the bloke.

Huge thanks to Sean Dyche for everything he did last season. Far and above expectations and I hope he goes on to have a long and successful career as a manager. Would like to have seen him given a chance with the extra resources Pozzos bring, but can also understand they want their own man.
I think Sean will be O.K - thanks.

What a load of crap you lot spout ! a year ago you and me included were begging that he never got the job, and two months into the season couldnt wait to see the back of the "great Peanut head".The results were awful and the play was of a club doomed to relegation. Then one friday night we finally get a starting line up resembling something like the one we had all been calling for and we put up a great show against Spurs, when most of us were expecting to get beat 5 or 6.Then we get a half decent keeper which once again most of us had been demanding all season and our form changes for the better. We put a decent run together and now everyone is shouting from the rooftops that SD is a legend and one of the great young managers.
Please do me a favor and get a reality check and smell the coffee !! just look at most of his signings for starters ! Zola has got to come in now and off load most of that rubbish.
Sean I have nothing personally against you and wish you all the very best in your future career.
But please stop all this sanctimonious drivel and get behind the new regime and all they stand for.
This is the best thing to happen to WFC since EJ some people dont realize just how lucky we are to get this deal.
The future looks bright !
The future is YELLOW !!.

Have to agree, anybody would have thought we lost a play off final. Same people have admitted before that we were punching above our weight in the championship. A proper push for the premiership might just be too much for them to handle! ForzaWatford.

So in the early part of the season the poor form was all down to Dyche but as things improved (along with his experience in the job) he just got lucky.

Just thanks for everything, Dychey. For that night against Preston when you got that forward of theirs in the back of the net at the Rookery and just kept punching him until the ref finally stepped in and sent you off. For growling on television and making us laugh. But mostly for putting together a side which massively over-achieved and with which we could all identify again. I hope you got a stonking great pay-off out of the Italians. I hope you get a really decent job, just as soon as you want one. And I hope you bring a side back to The Vic soon, to let us show how we feel. Good luck mate and thanks again.

Chris the Vic says...

I don't disagree with everything Keith Mercer says but in his first year of management he did well.
Yes he made mistakes but in mny ways outperformed Malky. He also showed loyalty well beyond both Malky and Brendan.

A shame the new owners ignored it.

With regard to Zola he was a big name playe but then so was Vialli. What worries me more is Sullivan and Golds commens aboutthe mess the Hammers were in aftr a period of guidance
by Zola and Duxbury.
Maybe we have better owners and a lesser management team.

Time will tell, but do not be too confident in the short term as we may have replaced a solid manager with a lemon.

In the meantime if Zola has not been appointed who told Heaton he was not wanted and why try and keep Seans dismissal secret.

For sure trust and respect have to be earnt and to date the new ower are not scoring too highly but maybe they think the fans are idiots ad should be kept in the dark and fed the odd scrap of news that is already in the public domain, I suspect the Dyche announcment was being held back until the Zola announcement cept Heatons revelation forced their hand

Please do me a favor and get a reality check and smell the coffee !! just look at most of his signings for starters ! Zola has got to come in now and off load most of that rubbish.
Sean I have nothing personally against you and wish you all the very best in your future career.
But please stop all this sanctimonious drivel and get behind the new regime and all they stand for.
This is the best thing to happen to WFC since EJ some people dont realize just how lucky we are to get this deal.
The future looks bright !
The future is YELLOW !!.
Spot on! Dyche did well under difficult signings, but his strength is getting the best out of mediocre players. His signings were hardly brilliant so if I was going to pump millions into a club, I would rather have my own person at the helm. I think we all would.

Just my view - but i thought it was a dignified statement by the owners - Dyche and the team did well in the second half of the season, some key loan signings, Murray coming through and Deeney of course bloomed after his arrest. Dyche is a genuine and honest fella who has served us well as player, coach and manager- but football and football fans expect employees to be despatched at a whim - managers & players. And by the way why are people angry about a manager leaving because he sussed out a new owner.Yet seem happy to see players sacked when they are deemed not good enough? Would Dyche and the coaching team have stuck with us if we had gone into administration and better offers from other clubs had come along? We now have genuine long term owners, for the first time in 20+ years. Remember how that previous era started.How did GT become the manager? He walked out on his employer to come to us and replaced a genuine and honest man that ET decided was unable to deliver his vision. Zola or whoever, will be employed as much for the abilty to deliver the new vision as his ability to appeal to talented players and big money sponsors. The comparison with Vialli is totally wrong. With Vialli we had small business owners in awe of a manager who spent all their money within 12 months. The new owners are not that naive. By the way the GT premiership legacy was parachute money; a team that collapsed after the Fulham home defeat (remember Fulham, little club - foreign owner - foreign coach, played us off the planet- been in the premiership ever since), and a squad whose only premiership quality first teamer was probably Alun Neilson. On Monday which players are going to be genuinely excited about the new regime and which will be upset and fearing for their futures- what ones do we want to build the team around?

we struggled at the start of last season, i think we only had 10 points from the first 10 games.dyche got lucky, when taylor got injured mirfin came in and was rubbish and we got nosworthy in to replace him then results started to improve.the loan signings helped us the players he bought were rubbish apart from hogg and nosworthy.big chris only came good at the end of the season garner,forsyth,mirfi
n and the prince are bad signings thay didnt do much.so saying dyche is a legend is a laugh without the loan players we would have been relegated.

I'm really looking forward to the new era, let's all get behind the new regime. People can be pro both SD and the new regime, too many posters on here seem to think that if you praise one you must be anti the other which is just stupid. Let's also remember that SD gave great service to this club as a player, and a coach and had a big hand in nurturing some of our younger players. This together with his brief spell as manager under difficult circumstance are what make him a "Watford Legend" not his time as manager alone.

I understand, yes I really do (bankrupt) that they want their own man running the team, but why the disjointed delay and why no news on who is replacing Dyche? As pointed out the players report back Monday to whom? Who else has had their contract terminated and my biggest question is are they replacing people for the sake of it with their own people when we have better people at the club to take us forward?! I have to say the PR is absolutley crud. Yes its great we have new owers but I am not going to bury my head lie others and not to point out they are letting us fans down already on the info side. Is Ross Wilson staying, is Deeney getting sacked, and why when a question is asked do they answer as if they are on the stand in court, 'we refer to our previous statement on the way forward', answer the icking questions open and honest is the way forward for us fans, you might be surpried at how accepting we are to your way's as long as you build the stadium and buy/loan players who are half decent!

The statement had the courtesy to acknowledge the many attributes of Sean, alluding to his integrity and loyalty and to the high regard WFC fans have.

That said the decision is baffling given his excellent proven track record to deliver academy success which the Pozzos say is their business model.

All the best Sean - a Premier League manager is your destiny.

by Zola and Duxbury.
Maybe we have better owners and a lesser management team.

Time will tell, but do not be too confident in the short term as we may have replaced a solid manager with a lemon.

In the meantime if Zola has not been appointed who told Heaton he was not wanted and why try and keep Seans dismissal secret.

For sure trust and respect have to be earnt and to date the new ower are not scoring too highly but maybe they think the fans are idiots ad should be kept in the dark and fed the odd scrap of news that is already in the public domain, I suspect the Dyche announcment was being held back until the Zola announcement cept Heatons revelation forced their hand

Yes, good luck Dyche- the 2-0 win with 2 Big Chris goals at 'helland' road was maybe a glimpse of what could have been.
But I am disappointed that youngsters starting to flourish under MM disappeared, like Matty W and Pierlo under SD.

Anyway new broom and all that- these guys are here for the next 10 years with proven business models....not dependent on some dodgy ITV deal, and if, if, Zola becomes another Vialli, they have shown they are ruthless enough to chop and change.
Forza Goldzzuri!!

Sounds like you want us to fail and as for faithful singing one Sean Dyche never heard that one all season! Perhaps you don't actually go to games?
Actually 'Buckler', I've probably been to more matches than you've had hot dinners (including Italian ones). I've been to matches since the early 60s and its irrespective whether or not "...one Sean Dyche" has been sung or not. I think you've missed the point I was making if things were to go wrong for Zola. I would be the last person to want Watford to fail whoever is in charge and I wish Zola all the best. My point is that I hope the new owners have not made a mistake by sacking a manager who, after a bit of a struggle at first, started making successful in-roads with the squad he had given his limited resources.

Sean has left the building and can hold his head high. He has experienced his first sacking which means he's a proper manager now. Hopefully got enough £ from Pozzos to bide his time before accepting another job. I'm not gonna patronise the big man with pity. Onwards and upwards for him and for us. Welcome back any time you ginger beauty.

I'm with you on the last line 100%, think the future under them 2 is not going to be smooth, for the club or fans, here's one for the anti bas brigade to hold against me, I hope I'm wrong but this is what I reckon.

Sounds like you want us to fail and as for faithful singing one Sean Dyche never heard that one all season! Perhaps you don't actually go to games?
Wouldn't worry Buck, too many words in that chant for our fans to be heard!
I'll be backing the new boss, Dyche is consigned to the past. Good bye good luck

What a load of crap you lot spout ! a year ago you and me included were begging that he never got the job, and two months into the season couldnt wait to see the back of the "great Peanut head".The results were awful and the play was of a club doomed to relegation. Then one friday night we finally get a starting line up resembling something like the one we had all been calling for and we put up a great show against Spurs, when most of us were expecting to get beat 5 or 6.Then we get a half decent keeper which once again most of us had been demanding all season and our form changes for the better. We put a decent run together and now everyone is shouting from the rooftops that SD is a legend and one of the great young managers.
Please do me a favor and get a reality check and smell the coffee !! just look at most of his signings for starters ! Zola has got to come in now and off load most of that rubbish.
Sean I have nothing personally against you and wish you all the very best in your future career.
But please stop all this sanctimonious drivel and get behind the new regime and all they stand for.
This is the best thing to happen to WFC since EJ some people dont realize just how lucky we are to get this deal.
The future looks bright !
The future is YELLOW !!.
Spot on as always Mr Mercedes class poster.
Do you realise we are now the clappers! And now those true fans who lauded the Great LB are willing the new regime to fail.
Don't matter, once we start producing the new breed of fan will come, and there will not be a bobble hat in site.
Hope we change to blue to stop them daft 'yellow' chants.

Good luck to Zola but i for one am afraid, very afraid.
I do not know much about the Pozzos but there CV looks very good, as for Zola great player as a manager average at best & as for the other 2 clowns ask any west ham fan what they think.

Just my view - but i thought it was a dignified statement by the owners - Dyche and the team did well in the second half of the season, some key loan signings, Murray coming through and Deeney of course bloomed after his arrest. Dyche is a genuine and honest fella who has served us well as player, coach and manager- but football and football fans expect employees to be despatched at a whim - managers & players. And by the way why are people angry about a manager leaving because he sussed out a new owner.Yet seem happy to see players sacked when they are deemed not good enough? Would Dyche and the coaching team have stuck with us if we had gone into administration and better offers from other clubs had come along? We now have genuine long term owners, for the first time in 20+ years. Remember how that previous era started.How did GT become the manager? He walked out on his employer to come to us and replaced a genuine and honest man that ET decided was unable to deliver his vision. Zola or whoever, will be employed as much for the abilty to deliver the new vision as his ability to appeal to talented players and big money sponsors. The comparison with Vialli is totally wrong. With Vialli we had small business owners in awe of a manager who spent all their money within 12 months. The new owners are not that naive. By the way the GT premiership legacy was parachute money; a team that collapsed after the Fulham home defeat (remember Fulham, little club - foreign owner - foreign coach, played us off the planet- been in the premiership ever since), and a squad whose only premiership quality first teamer was probably Alun Neilson. On Monday which players are going to be genuinely excited about the new regime and which will be upset and fearing for their futures- what ones do we want to build the team around?
I suspect Andrew the players that would naturally kick the balls skywards are the ones who will not relish the incumbent coach
And how people are lumping Zola in the same bracket as Vialli is beyond me. I think Zola has great humility, was a footballing genius and if people bothered to look had one excellent seaon at WHU and one where the rug was pulled beneath him.
I love to watch good football, and Tbh I haven't seen too much of that lately.

If you read my other post on them I have put that they did offer to reduce their salaries and paid the wages of a player, after they had a rise of course!! As far as I am concened they have a blank canvas start at Watford but I sure as hell will not be happy to see Ross Wilson replaced as that will be a negative step by so called football people, wanting to take this club forward.

With regard to Vialli, My understanding was that he was given a budget and spent it all on transfers, forgetting that the wages were supposed to come out of that pot. The consequent result we all know. Good luck to SD for his future but ours is with WFC and welcome to Pozzo's and their new regime. I for one am looking forward to the season. I hope they will hold a Q and A for the fans asap so that they can put all the concerns of the posters to bed

We put a decent run together and now everyone is shouting from the rooftops that SD is a legend and one of the great young managers.
Please do me a favor and get a reality check and smell the coffee !! just look at most of his signings for starters ! Zola has got to come in now and off load most of that rubbish.
Sean I have nothing personally against you and wish you all the very best in your future career.
But please stop all this sanctimonious drivel and get behind the new regime and all they stand for.
This is the best thing to happen to WFC since EJ some people dont realize just how lucky we are to get this deal.
The future looks bright !
The future is YELLOW !!.
Keith - no money - losing a fortune each week - finished 11th by having to manage player sales to pay bills. Give him credit - up there with the clubs with money competing, not surviving. Not luck - good man management.

Even worse than the actually sacking is the way it's been handled and prolonged.

Again.....in Pozzo I trust, in Duxberry and Nani I fear.
I'm with you on the last line 100%, think the future under them 2 is not going to be smooth, for the club or fans, here's one for the anti bas brigade to hold against me, I hope I'm wrong but this is what I reckon. Nani and Duxbury have sold the club to the Pozzo's as a investment worth the risk and now, they need to be confirmed in charge before they start their own PR campaign, as they have not it is the Pozzo's who are currently releasing dribs and drabs of info, thus the slow start to any action. Duxbury also sold a lot of guff info to West Ham fans on what the club was going to do before the club hit the wall with severe financial problems blamed on the Icelandic owners not putting up the capital and also managing to give themselves lucrative contracts during the same said turmoil, hope this is not going to be a issue at Watford under the new regime.
Have you not been looking up the successes these guys have achieved? No your too busy looking up and pointing out possible areas of failure. I now understand why the scouters call plods busies!
Come on Corbyinbasass smell the coffee, it's freshly made
Well that's was my job to point out the issues! Coffee thanks 2 lumps in my mug please just make sure it is not Nani and Duxbury!! If you read my other post on them I have put that they did offer to reduce their salaries and paid the wages of a player, after they had a rise of course!! As far as I am concened they have a blank canvas start at Watford but I sure as hell will not be happy to see Ross Wilson replaced as that will be a negative step by so called football people, wanting to take this club forward.
Agree with you wholeheartedly and I have this morning emailed the club for the attention of the directors about this as well.

These two are NOT good news for WFC, just wait for the spin to start to roll out from Duxberry and his Nani!

Dr Oftaw nothing wrong wih me, you however might just be too believing. On paper the Pozzos look lie briliant owners BUT like many others on here I am not conviced by Duxbury nor Zola...their records in management are mixed and we know far more about them than Bas or the Pozzos.
I am confident in the long term that the new owners wil be good for the club, but remain to be convinced we will benefit in the short term from their selected management who seem to come to office on the back of suggesting the owners buy WFC.

Lets wait a season before judging them fully just like we should have done with Sean and maybe Bas.

I can simply not believe that a clued-up, shrewd, business-minded family like the Pozzo's would allow the wool to be pulled over their eyes by Duxberry and Nani. They certainly would have done their due diligence and made substantial enquiries on them before appointing them as the family's representatives. Same goes for Zola. Let's give all 3 gents at least 3 months grace before we start jumping on them from a great height. You know it makes sense, Roders !

Well sadly for you it will end up in the bin, and even sadder for you and your sad mates the club will progress despite your weak protests. But as suggested to some if us last year, why don't you and your mates have a whip around and buy the club. Ludicrous of course, so I think it's a case of like it or lump it.

This together with his brief spell as manager under difficult circumstance are what make him a "Watford Legend" not his time as manager alone.
Absolutely spot on mkhornet! Players have now been told to report back on Tuesday (not Monday as originally planned), so expect further announcements soon.

People can be pro both SD and the new regime, too many posters on here seem to think that if you praise one you must be anti the other which is just stupid. Let's also remember that SD gave great service to this club as a player, and a coach and had a big hand in nurturing some of our younger players.

You cannot blame the new owners for wanting their men at the helm . As they have been in the business for the last twenty six years,we have to assume they know what they are doing.If Zola proves to be not the right guy they will replace him and get the right one.They have done it before and no doubt will again. We are in the hands of what appears to be a football loving family who have a proven track record. Change is allways difficult,but I suggest we get behind them and enjoy the ride as I am sure the Prem will be a reallity COYH

Then maybe GT should have hung in to oversee the change? He knew what was coming and by being out of the loop renders his comments or thoughts as useless
