- Watford have been busy again in the transfer market with 11 players coming in to Vicarage Road and 13 going the other way. The loan signing of Matej Vidra on loan from Udinese. Vydra returns after previously spending the 2012/13 season with Watford scoring an impressive 20 goals from 41 league games.
- Last season Watford’s hopes of a top six finish were ended by a 10 games winless run in the winter and ending the season with 4 straight defeats.
- The current Watford squad has just 5 Italian players, proving many cynics of their link with Udinese wrong. The squad also includes 9 English players.
- Since he took over in December, Giuseppe Sannino has looked to change the style of the Watford side with a focus on a solid defence in contrast to previous regimes where the focus was on all-out attack. Under Sannino last season Watford had 9 clean sheets.
