The Impressive Rise of the Hornets in the Premier League and FA Cup

Watford FC fans are content with their team following its recent victories in the Premier League. The football club commonly referred to as the Hornets is at the seventh position in the Premier League. Manager Javi Gracia has been on the forefront in motivating and praising his team for their great achievements. Out of eleven games, Watford FC has played; it has only lost one to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Javi Gracia has praised his team for their excellent teamwork in thrashing Cardiff FC to get a 5-1 win; their biggest win this season. Javi Garcia also praised goal scorer Gerard Deulofeu for his stunning three goals in the game which destroyed their opponent’s team spirit. For the fans, there was no more of a fascinating goal than Deulofeu’s hat-trick. The player made an exceptional performance for his team from his goals and his latest assist to Troy which secured their fourth goal.

Currently, Watford FC has forty points in the Premier League which according to Gracia is a good run but still have a lot to do. Deulofeu’s received a treble in over thirty years since Mark Falco scored the famous hat-trick against Aston Villa in 1986. According to Cardiff’s manager Neil Warnock, the referee made an erroneous judgment during the end of the first period. The manager complained that the referee did not award Cardiff a penalty when Daryl Janmaat pushed Cardiff’s player Josh Murphy to the ground. According to the manager, if the penalty would have been granted, the team would have gone to the dressing room with a draw which would have kept their spirits high.

Watford’s current owner is Italian businessman Gino Pozzo, son of Giampaolo Pozzo whom he succeeded the team. As owner and managing director, Gino Pozzo is heavily involved with his team; negotiating transfers between Watford and his father’s Italian football club Udinese Calcio.
