After narrowly avoiding the drop, Watford are looking toward a new future under Marco Silva. The Portuguese manager almost saved Hully City while Walter Mazzarri saw the Hornets drop like weights were attached to their ankles.
A new season, a new hope and the Hertfordshire club is aiming for mid-table obscurity to settle the nerves. The relegation fight threatens to be a lot tighter than last season with no clear favourites for the drop.
Many will lean toward Brighton and Huddersfield but as Newcastle, Sunderland and Aston Villa can attest, a bad start to the season quickly turns perilous. Silva’s job security depends on making sure the club progresses each year.
Watford 2017-18 Home Kit
This is the Watford 2017-18 home kit:
A straightforward yellow shirt, very much in the Watford tradition. Running down the side of the body, Adidas feature their trademark Three Stripes in red. The collar, v-necked, is also red while the cuffs are yellow, running on from the sleeve.
The black shorts come with red Adidas Three Stripes on the legs. A thin red band features at the bottom of each leg. Black socks with red trim complete the kit.
Straightforward and unfussy; you get the feeling that’s how Watford would like their season to be.
