Willie Irvine column: Hornets must now feel stung by Sean

Lancashire Telegraph: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

AFTER Gianfranco Zola resigned this week, Watford must surely be regretting letting Sean Dyche go now.

Sean did a good job at Watford and I think he had taken them to their highest position in the Championship table for four years when they decided to get rid of him.

Who knows where they could be now if they had kept him?

I know Watford are owned by Italians and I think they wanted to bring in a fellow Italian when they went for Zola, but he wasn’t really proven as a manager and they’re mid-table this season.

I think there’s no chance that Sean would want to go back there now.

He seems very happy here at Burnley and the board have supported him up to a point.

I know he has said he won’t be asking for lots of money to spend in January because he doesn’t want to put the club at risk and that is sensible.

We’re only getting 12,000 fans through the door, which is not enough to stop the club losing money, and Sean understands the situation.

But the job he has done on a shoestring has been brilliant.

I wasn’t sure about him when he first arrived, but he has done a fantastic job.

You see him on the touchline when he substitutes players and he always speaks to them and makes them still feel part of it.

He is very much like Harry Potts in that way, and Harry obviously led the team to the First Division title.

He has made the players believe not only in themselves but also in the club.

There have been times in the past when I’ve watched Burnley and they haven’t believed, and I don’t think the club has meant enough to them. That was frustrating to watch.

Saturday’s draw at Leicester does give me even more belief that we can stay up there in promotion contention.

In the first half Leicester had a lot of chances and we could have been 3-0 or 4-0 down.

But thankfully it was only 1-0 and the manager was able to reorganise.

Then a few minutes into the second half Danny Ings – who else? – came up with the equalising goal.

People said Sam Vokes should have scored after that, but Kasper Schmeichel is a very good goalkeeper and he did what he is there to do.

It was a save reminiscent of the ones his father made at Manchester United Sam was excellent in the game and his work at both ends of the pitch must make him a contender for our player of the season at this stage.

More claptrap. Watford regret getting rid of Dyche? At the time they sacked him Dyche's career as a manager consisted of one season, the majority of which was spent in the bottom half of the division. Watford then appointed Zola (with Premier League experience with a far bigger reputation than Dyche) and went within a whisker of promotion last season without spending any money, playing for the most part attractive football in stark contrast to the defensive mentality seen under Dyche.

Dyche is bound to say he is happy at Burnley, as nobody else offered him a job when he wanted one, but there's only so long he can continue to keep the club punching far above its weight before he begins to get disillusioned at the lack of financial support on offer. Its well documented he's been desperate to strengthen with loans and wanted Ebanks Blake (who looks to be on his way to Ipswich). The sale of Ings in January with none of the money reinvested could be the final straw.

As you're so interested in our manager, have a read. This is what a real manager is made of. Gary Bowyer on the other hand could manage a good poo let alone a football club.

Dyche has recently gone on record stating that he is quite happy with the financial state of the club and would only consider any investment if it served the best interests of the clubs long term future, a stark comparison to the trigger happy wally's at Blackburn who hand out £35,000 a week 4 year contracts to the likes of Dickson Etuhu. The mind boggles.

The board have also gone on record several times stating that Burnley would be crazy to sell their stars in the transfer window when there is the very realistic possibility of promotion and the associated riches on offer.

Sean Dyche has re-energised our football club from top to bottom combining the latest sports science with an honest hard-working approach that brings out the best in players. The truth is you would give you right b0llock for a manager with half his talent, and you are very, very bitter that he is making his name with Burnley.

Your attempt at scaremongering is once again very weak and needs more work. I'll give you a C for effort and a D- for content. Try again tomorrow.

Mr. Off there in petty-minded fish-wife mode.

Since his own team are under-performing, his resentment at not being able to lord it over his rivals is revealed in all its sh1t-stirring glory there.

How is Crystal Palace's attempt at signing Dyche as their new manager going? You were on here three weeks ago claiming that was a done deal.

When Mr. Off claims something is 'well documented', what he actually means is 'what I'd like to see happen'. Now we are all aware of that fact, let's read what he attempts to write in the future with that knowledge in mind

Thanks for pointing out that article, unfortunately you are no longer the championship leaders and probably never will be again after your astonishing record of one win in seven games.

I know that it doesn't too great for my team Watford that we are underperforming whereas Sean Dyche is having success at Burnley, but I actually feel proud about the success we have had over the last decade with managerial appointments.

Like I have said, Dyche is doing well at Burnley, while Malky Mackay did a decent job for us and got Cardiff into the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers got Swansea into the Premier League and now has one of the most prized jobs in football as Liverpool manager, and Aidy Boothroyd surprised many by getting us into the Premier League, even if he has had little success since leaving.

It would have nice had our owners kept Dyche, but I don't think that was an option due to the difference between Dyche’s playing style and the style that our owners had in mind, so that is how it goes. I don’t have any bad words to say about him, and I am not aware of him publicly saying any bad words about us. I hope his success at Burnley continues.

With regards to my views on Gianfranco Zola, his reign was enjoyable in terms of results achieved and style of football. However, the rest of the division had recently worked out the password to the document titled How To Beat Watford, and Zola admitted he wasn't the man to turn things around, which is more than many managers would have done.

With regards to my views on Guiseppe Sanninno, time will tell whether he is a good appointment. I would have preferred someone with experience of achieving things in English football, as a lot of our players have admitted feeling surprised about the quality and fighting spirit of the division, but I have faith our owners know what they are doing.

As I've stated before Venky, it's not scare mongering, it's a wish list and nothing more. Rovers fans "stating" that Ings is "on his way in January" is nothing more than a desperate hope, along with Dyche moving to WBA, Watford, Fleetwood or Northampton Town. I agree about the manager jealousy though, anything would be better than the simpering, whinging, "we'll learn from that defeat", immensely boring, good-for-nothing they have now. Just laugh at them and pass them over.

However, the rest of the division had recently worked out the password to the document titled How To Beat Watford, and Zola admitted he wasn't the man to turn things around, which is more than many managers would have done. With regards to my views on Guiseppe Sanninno, time will tell whether he is a good appointment. I would have preferred someone with experience of achieving things in English football, as a lot of our players have admitted feeling surprised about the quality and fighting spirit of the division, but I have faith our owners know what they are doing.[/p][/quote]Thanks for your views. I hope Dyche does follow in some of your previous manager's footsteps. houseclaret

I know that it doesn't too great for my team Watford that we are underperforming whereas Sean Dyche is having success at Burnley, but I actually feel proud about the success we have had over the last decade with managerial appointments.

Like I have said, Dyche is doing well at Burnley, while Malky Mackay did a decent job for us and got Cardiff into the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers got Swansea into the Premier League and now has one of the most prized jobs in football as Liverpool manager, and Aidy Boothroyd surprised many by getting us into the Premier League, even if he has had little success since leaving.

It would have nice had our owners kept Dyche, but I don't think that was an option due to the difference between Dyche’s playing style and the style that our owners had in mind, so that is how it goes.

Thanks for your views as a guest Jonathan, and welcome. Please forgive the mess though, we've got the Rovers in.

More claptrap. Watford regret getting rid of Dyche? At the time they sacked him Dyche's career as a manager consisted of one season, the majority of which was spent in the bottom half of the division. Watford then appointed Zola (with Premier League experience with a far bigger reputation than Dyche) and went within a whisker of promotion last season without spending any money, playing for the most part attractive football in stark contrast to the defensive mentality seen under Dyche.

Dyche is bound to say he is happy at Burnley, as nobody else offered him a job when he wanted one, but there's only so long he can continue to keep the club punching far above its weight before he begins to get disillusioned at the lack of financial support on offer. Its well documented he's been desperate to strengthen with loans and wanted Ebanks Blake (who looks to be on his way to Ipswich). The sale of Ings in January with none of the money reinvested could be the final straw.
You are sooo desperate aren't you - you hope and pray that Dyche is disillusioned, that Ings wants away, that our 'Wheels come off', just to make your own car crash of a season more palatable.

The simple facts are these - we have such a settled side that any loan players would have to settle for a place on the bench.

Any striker would ask about potential game time and will have been told categorically they are third choice behind Ings and Vokes - this is why Wickham went to Sheffield Wednesday etc.

We are victims of our own success, but the simple fact is we only need loan players as BACK UP to our successful first 18 - we are second in an extremely tough Championship, averaging two points a game and therefore unlike Jordan Rhodes FC, we don't need to change a great deal as we are already on course to get promoted.

Still, if it makes you feel better then just go for it - I bet you have been kicking the dog/wife/sister/hors
e *delete as appropriate every single Saturday so far this season haven't you jack?

It seems Jack that you are as senile as your namesake, you know the guy that the Blackburn board fleeced of all his life savings in order to fund your successes of the 90's.
