Spot on really!
Basically the club and some fans cannot decide what sort of manager they want it seems .
We go from one sort to another every time .
They probably should have gone for a Bilic type of manager if the board wanted an instant impact rather than a young manager with a years worth of management experience.
Edwards was always going to be a bit raw tactically wise .
Agree, said early on in his first few interviews it sounded all a bit Jones at Stoke to me. Lots of talk about culture and attitude all admirable and totally correct to a certain level, but it’s different when you are building something in your own image with a group going on the journey with you than walking into something that many think is already half made anyway and have a different agenda. There’s certainly seems to be multiple competing agendas and power bases within the Watford structure given this sudden lurch between approaches.
In hindsight both were poor moves in terms of club they were going to for the type of manager they were at the time of the move. Think Edwards will ultimately come out of it well in his next role, but is another example to these up and coming coaches in the EFL that you need to choose your moves very carefully and not jump at the first big pay check coming along. Similar happened to the Cowleys at Huddersfield.
