Silva seems to be set on moving up the ladder as quickly as possible, but ultimately he has fallen down. We should steer well clear of him, he is only interested in Marco Silva, so many on here believed the hype and we desperate to get him in the summer, I prefer how it worked out to be honest.

There is something brittle about Silva, there is also something entirely egotisitical.

However, there is no doubt that over the short term he is an excellent manager, yet when it goes against him that ego and brittle nature suddenly come to the fore.

He did superbly for Watford, then Everton offered him the sort of club, project, money and budget he really wanted. From that moment on Watford were history.

He obviously fell out with the owners. And either he downed tools or he lost the players - or both.

It could be that Silva had an understanding with the Pozzo's that if a big club come in for him they won't stand in his way, but it seems he was just nakedly ambitious.

What is certain is that Watford turned down 10 million in compensation, lost a whole host of points, and now presumably have to pay out millions in compensation plus millions more to find a new manager.

Anyway would love to see them go down, along with Brighton and West Ham.

I didn't think much of Silva before and still don't. His look of resignment when we beat them 4-0 said it all. He is not someone I would want in charge when we are going through a bad patch, and let's face it, we have had a few of those. I never wanted him and am glad we didn't get him.

Dyche on the otherhand has just hit a bad patch, but I would much rather him than Silva.
And to be fair to Dyche his last 8 games, where hes only picked up 2 points, they've played Manure, Man City, Liverpool twice, Spurs and a very in form Palace. 2 0-0 draws at Brighton and Huddersfield isn't that bad.

They have a bigger injury list than us don’t they? Lost a bunch of games in the last minute. There is obviously a personality clash, but Silva doesn’t come out of this looking good.

If Watford are a joke club then so are we. There's really not much between us.

Wouldn't want Silva here - I think he's an impact manager and over time you end up with a Pardew defence

Didn't see it coming, despite their terrible form. Sounds like they were disagreeing a lot behind the scenes. Guess now he just needs to wait for Allardyce to walk out in the summer.

I think hes a good manager, but the Everton job showed hed use a club like ours as a stepping stone for his own ambitions. Despite being sad to miss him in the Summer, Im now glad we did.

2 year deal is quite optimistic as far as Watford are concerned!

The BBC has allowed Watford to control this story. Seems to me that the Pozzos are a pretty ruthless organisation and I can't imagine that Silva is at all happy that his reputation is now on the line because everyone seems to accept that the Everton situation is the (only) reason for their loss of form. I thought they were impressive against us and should have won. They have also had a lot injuries to deal with.

Anyhow, I expect Watford's loss to be Southampton's gain.

To think many wanted Silva or Pellegrino. It's going/gone well for both of them so far.

Watford stated in October that they have set their club up so that the manager is never the one who makes the club, but the club makes the manager.

I don't particularly like the way Watford cheated their way to the Premier League (Udinese in disguise) but I think Watford are only to blame in the sense that they missed out on 10m for him.

If we were the Watford fans, we would really be wishing our board punished him, but not just by sacking him. As I suggested earlier, Gardening Leave.
