A horrible run of form towards the end of the season saw Watford record their worst Premier League finish since they rejoined the league in 2015.
Manager Walter Mazzarri was given the boot after a measly 30% win percentage across 40 games in charge but Watford fans here at the Transfer Tavern are optimistic about the new campaign now former Hull boss Marco Silva is at the helm.
With the weather worsening in recent days, Hornets fans have swarmed to the safety of the Tavern, and summer transfer activity is the topic on the agenda.
After a gossip with our landlord, it was decided that a new number one may be on the cards this summer, with Heurelho Gomes heading towards the latter stages of his career, and a suggestion of Steven Mandanda by our gaffer for the Watford crowd excited.
The former Marseille goalkeeper has struggled to nail down the number one spot at Selhurst Park, and could be available for a little amount of money.
The 32 year old has 32 caps for France despite a generation of world class French shot stoppers, and would be an excellent addition between the sticks at Vicarage Road.
The fees being touted for the DR Congo born man are nominal for an international goalkeeper, and Silva should place faith in Mandanda and make him his new number one.
Thoughts, Watford fans? Let us know below!
