Congratulations Gianfranco

Congratulations Gianfranco

Sat in my favourite comfy chair I`ve just witnessed something special.

Now I`ve no affection for Watford Football Club, even more so when you consider where I live, but even I have to admit I was pumping the air with delight when Troy Deeney belted home that late, late winner to send Watford to the play-off final at Wembley.

The sight of a delighted Gianfranco Zola skipping onto the pitch and taking a tumble before regaining his composure cracked me up. But, fair play to Watford, they played some decent stuff and I look forward to Gianfranco Zola leading out his side at Wembley, a side containing Nathanial Chalobah, as Gianfranco seeks to be a manager of a Premier League side.

Not only did they qualified for the play offs final, they did it in a very spectacular way playing attractive never give up football, Just imagine what Zola could do with a team comprising the likes of Hazard and Oscar in his team, like the now highly revered Jurgen Klopp he has made unknown players playing very good football, that's what i call a good manager, who else can trust an 18yr old who was playing with Chelsea reserve team last season to become a key player in a team fighting for promotion?

I won't be congratulating the sardinian just yet, I'll rather congratulate him when he makes it to the PL, it would really boost his credentials and let him test his mettle among the big boys again, it would be good for chalobah too

Zola and his Watford side have struggled to ride the wave against certain factors(Injury,Poor referring decision,e.t.c) that have worked against them towards the tail end of the season. They missed out on automatic promotion to Hull City on the last match day...Hopefully things work out for Zola and his team in the playoffs final.

We can loan another BPL team only one player at a time,so unfortunately we might not be able to send our youngsters on loan at Watford.But if we decide to give Chalobah a first team chance,we might loan Piazon,he will surely get a lot of game time and will definitely improve himself as a player in competitive premier league conditions.
