After five years of Premier league football, Watford return to the Championship looking for an immediate return to the top flight.
After four years of no real threat of relegation, last season can only be described as a nightmare for The Hornets who went through four managers, which resulted in an inevitable and very much deserved relegation.
Having kept key players such as Etienne Capoue and Ismaila Sarr, and with the emerging talents of defender Ben Wilmot and attacker Joao Pedro, Watford have one of the strongest and most talented squads in the Championship, who under the guidance of the steely Serb Vladimir Ivic, look set for an exciting campaign which should end in promotion.
