    Thus reminding of us the Tommy Docherty quote "Management is about keeping the five players who don't like you away from the six who are unsure".

    TBF Troy hasn't tweeted much this season and so I wonder whether there is a policy in place to not talk about certain matters, if asked about Walter he could either ignore or say what he did say.

    I'd say Troy. As captain he's meant to be a galvanising, impartial presence; especially when talking about his boss.

    He's a club legend and has done so much for our club, but over the last two seasons you can see that him being 'Mr Watford' has gone to his head. As captain, he's got to lead by example in various ways and one of which is by respecting the managers decisions and putting the team before himself. I saw that interview too and you could tell he what he was getting at. For me he was insinuating that he isn't happy with the manager. As others say, in public you have to back him so if he's not doing that convincingly in front of the cameras, what has he been saying to his team mates? Hopefully nothing but it makes you wonder.

    He's starting to think he's bigger than the club, or at least it looks like that. Again, I hope I'm wrong!

    Personally I'd let him go in the summer if we received a good offer. I think the notion of him being "Mr Watford" and our supposed talisman is actually doing more harm than good at this point and I feel like he's living off of that more than his performances/ability. If we want to progress I think we need a more mobile, active forward that's going to give the opposition more to worry about that just being "beaten up" all game.

    Been a great player and servant to the club but in my opinion it feels like it's all gone a little stale.

    I tend to agree with this assessment.

    A shame but all good things etc.

    Part of the trouble is he is the only one in the squad who has any relationship with the media hence the regular interviews etc..

    At other clubs who have a number who take on the media PR role...

    Getting a bit sick of his "Honest Troy" shtick. He comes out with all these great soundbites after the game about how the performance wasn't up to scratch and he gets a load of publicity about what a great, honest leader he is, despite being a large part of the crap performance himself.

    How about leading by example on the pitch instead?

    Doesn't have the pace to make the next step forward, he's another one at his ceiling

    He's too big a personality to be our 7th or 8th best player, which is where he should rank once injuries to Pereyra and Zarate abate and we sign 2 or 3 upgraded 1st teamers in the summer.

    We've needed him up until now, but I feel that this summer is the right time for both parties, that he goes elsewhere and has a chance in a bigger pond.

    I will criticise him for his performances this season and for his ego, but his status as a Watford legend is secured and a stand or statue named after Troy should definitely be considered down the line.

    Another season of negative growth and rancid football to accommodate Troy's limited abilities, however, could sour the relationship

    To be fair, I think a season of negative growth helps Troy as it counteracts the positive growth he always manages in the summer.

    he is bigger than the club. He's gaining weight as I type. Troy's gut will soon spill into Bedfordshire!

    Still of the belief it's not Deeney's fault.

    The signing of Okaka STILL makes no absolutely no sense, history shows a quick (ish) striker next to Deeney is the best combo so we sign a fat lumbering useless old reject? Sign a striker with pace, put him next to Deeney and he will score, end of.

    Okaka is better than Deeney on a technical level, it's pretty obvious. Not sure how you're missing that.
