#2 Quique Sanchez Flores at Watford

The Spaniard saw his time at Vicarage road cut short even after an admirable first season in the Premier League

When a newly promoted team appoints a new manager, the most one could expect from him is surviving the drop. Hence, when Watford sacked Quique Sanches Flores after a highly admirable 11th placed finish, it didn’t make much sense.

Yes, he might have had a terrible second half of the year, but perhaps it was a bit too harsh to base his sacking on just that.

Most of the players and many pundits were absolutely stunned by the owners’ decision to bring down the axe on him, with captain Troy Deeney calling it a “crazy” decision. The club now sit at 11th after 7 games, but only time will tell if they can maintain their spot. And even if they did, what’s the point?

After all, it wouldn’t be an improvement.
