The week started positively for Watford with Ismaila Sarr and Andre Gray both impressing on international duty.
Sarr provided a goal and an assist while winning a penalty for Senegal, while Gray opened his account for Jamaica in a friendly.
There was yet another kit “leak” from Footy Headlines who this time revealed what they are claiming to be the third kit for the 2021/22 season.
The kits are yet to be revealed formally, unlike striker Ashley Fletcher from Middlesbrough, who spoke about his exit from the Teesside club before his move was finally confirmed by the Hornets, as was Rob Elliot’s contract extension.
One Ashley who is looking less likely to be at Watford next season is Ashley Young, who is weighing up the choice between a return to Vicarage Road and another year in Italy.
While Young is on Watford’s radar, a goalkeeper is not with sources playing down links to West Brom and England’s Sam Johnstone.
There was the launch of a new supporter’s group – Women of Watford FC – and also the launch of a new podcast from the Watford Observer.
Finally Isaac Success has been linked with a move away from the club, but is keen to stay and fight for his place while news broke late on Friday afternoon of a move for Danny Rose, which is understood to be “very close”.
