Watford FC 2018-19 Season Review
It has been quite the ride for Watford FC since their promotion to the English Premier League in the 2014/15 season. Fortunately, the Hornets have successfully maintained a steady camp in the last few seasons. Javi Garcia has built a team around athleticism, power, strength, and speed. Troy Deeney's bullish style coupled with Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra's speed and flair along with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Etienne Capoue's dominance and strength in the midfield.
The Hornets have enjoyed a healthy goal contribution spread among players across the field. The team had a few excellent runs of form throughout last season, but they failed to maintain it during the times that it mattered. Watford surprised many by managing to finish 11th last season with only 7 points away from the final Europa League spot; however, it was their inconsistencies at the end of the season that cost them a higher spot on the table. It is worth mentioning that they managed to reach the final of the FA Cup, even though they lost 6-0 to Manchester City. Javi Garcia and his team will be looking to increase the quality and depth of the squad as the Hornets intend to challenge the likes of Wolves, Everton, and Leicester City this season.
Watford FC During This Summer
Arguably Watford FC had a successful yet quiet summer. Not only they managed to add depth and quality to their squad, but more importantly, they managed to keep their stars amid the likes of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Etienne Capoue linked with moves away from Vicarage Road. The Hornets were busy up until the deadline day of the transfer window. In the last hours of the transfer market, they signed Ismaïla Sarr, a promising young winger/forward, in a club-record deal from Stade Rennais FC.
