    Default WTF is going on at Watford??

    By my reckoning they have now signed 11 players on loan, with the majority of them being from their owners' other clubs. Is there not still a rule that you can only field 5 loanees in a matchday squad? Does anybody else find their state of affairs to be a little bizarre?

    I thought that there was a limit on loan players in the squad too, 7?

    It is on Football Manager, and only about 3 of them can be long term!

    Doesn't apply to foreign loans

    The Pozzo family have done a great job at Udinese and granada, with Udinese supposedly being one of the best run clubs in Serie A

    It could be a good strategy. It'll be interesting to see how it pans out- but they arent con men.

    That will explain it then. Having looked more closely, Watford actually have 14(!) loanees in their squad currently, with 10 of them being from Udinese. Since foreign loans count as 'transfers', the only one of the fourteen which actually counts as a loan is Nathaniel Chalobah from Chelsea. Utterly stupid FIFA regulations.

    Royal Antwerp.

    And they chose Belgium because Belgium has somewhat less stringent work-permit legislation than any other EU country, which helps when bringing in non-EU players.

    (as in, if they've played for a year - or "worked" - it makes it somewhat easier to obtain a UK work permit).

    This is a massive team (39 I think I counted).

    Insane. Not to be arrogant or anything, but it's quality over quantity for Forest

    Weren't some of our players prevented by the FA from wearing shirt numbers in the 40s? Yet Watford have to have 4 players with 40+ on their shirts, simply because they have such a massive squad!

    They lost to Derby. Badly. I'd say their strategy is therefore shit.

    Derby fan at work says Watford were utterly useless on Saturday, they even made Connor Sammon look decent. It's disappointing that we don't get to play them till December.
