Why Dyche Will Be A Success at Watford.

12:36am Wednesday 22nd June 2011

Watford Football Club has announced the appointment of Sean Dyche as first team manager. The hornets have also confirmed the signing of Craig Forsyth on a 3 year deal from Dundee. A minority of the Watford fans are never pleased with the promotion of assistant manager to manager yet I struggled to see any better applicant for the Watford helm. This is why I think Bassini has done the right thing in appointing Dyche as manager: • Sean Dyche knows the club inside out which will help him undertake the role left by Malky Mackay who exited for Cardiff. He’ll recognize the present finances available should understand which formation suits the team best along with distinguishing who the better players are at the club.

Watford Observer: Concentrating on the interview

6:41pm Saturday 23rd October 2010

On a bitter cold Tuesday night, Watford were at home to Ipswich Town in a Npower Championship League match. For this match, I was lucky enough to sit in the press box and interview a player of my choice once the game had drawn to a close.
