Advantages: Great to watch
Disadvantages: Poor form recently
I think Watford will be in the playoffs as they wont catch Fulham or second spot Bolton/Blackburn and so they will do it all again via the playoffs - and this time they'll stay up. They had a superb run of form at the start of the season, but then they went on an amazing run where they couldn't seem to win any games and other teams ewere taking over them in the league and Watford were heading downwards. They are now currntly in a respectable top 6 although I feel that they should be in the top 3 as they are a very good side compared to other team in the top half of Division 1.
Last season, they did not do very well at all after getting promoted into the premiership the season before. They only lasted the premiership's challenge for 1 year and they were relegated back into the Division 1. Too be honest though, it wasn't really a suprise that they were relegated as nearly everyone had predicted that they would be relegated at the end of the season, and they were right. But I do not think that they will be there for long as well.
The manager, Graham Taylor, is a credit to the club and has made Vicourage Road an exciting place to watch football again. I also feel that Watford's best player, Tommy Mooney, has shown the UK that he's a superb footballer and the rest of the Hornets are getting better every game. Tommy Mooney has scored quite a few goals this season and as long as he can score quite a few more this season, Watford should get into the playoffs and hopefully gwet promoted through this way again.
In my opinion , they will finish 6th - you know they will, and they'll win the playoffs too!
