Shocking news coming from Vicarage Road as manager Gianfranco Zola gets sacked after threatening to kill Director of Football Gianluca Nani.
We here at Sky Sports have been told by a Watford insider that Gianluca was bullying Zola at the workplace and he had enough so he threatened to stab him with a very sharp pencil. So now the chairman Raffaele Riva has come in and sacked Zola even though Zola told him what had supposedly between the two.

Now we are going to get Jeff Stelling, Charlie Nicholas and Chris Kamaras point of view on the story.

CN: Well, if this is supposedly true then it is a great shame as I had expected better of Zola, he has majorly let himself down.

JS: Couldn't agree more, and Gianluca Nani should also hang his head in shame, bullying isn't acceptable anywhere in the playground or the workplace. What about you Kammy?

CK: Well I think what the two have done is unbelievable Jeff!

JS: Soon we will be taking a look at the favourites to take over the managerial job at Vicarage Road and whether Gianluca Nani is getting punished or not.
Chris Kamara <3 Nice start mate
Nice start Beast, keep it up :)

Today we will be reviewing the managerial candidates for the newly available Watford job.

The bookies favourite at 4-1 is former QPR Manager Mark Hughes, Hughes provides experience with Premier League management but these jobs have all ended in a sacking for Mr Hughes. People are suggesting that he could be the catalyst to revive Watford and bring them to the top flight.

The bookies second favourite at 6-1 is Birmingham manager Lee Clark, he so far has managed Huddersfield in League 1 leading them to 3rd place before getting sacked by Dean Hoyle, but has recently joined Birmingham City as manager but with Birmingham in deep financial trouble they would gladly take any compensation from the manager leaving

And the bookies longshot at 25-1 is Palermo manager Gian Piero Gasperini, This manager was very succesful at Genoa in the Serie A before moving to top team Inter Milan, but after just 2 months in charge Massimo Moratti relieved him of his duties and he now manages mid-table side Palermo. People could see no real reason why he would leave Palermo for Watford, but some say Raffaele Riva could give him a hefty wage if he joined along with the promises of getting to work with a few Italian players due to the clubs link with Udinese.


The lights were blinding, people cheering my name, I felt a sense of euphoria as I walked in I had finally returned home. I walked into the conference and shook hands with Raffaele Riva before sitting down in my chair and taking a refreshing sip of water. I shook my head, before preparing to answer some questions

BS: Hello Mr Riva, how glad are you to have finally gotten your man?

ER: Errrr very happy, Luther belongs to Watford, this place is his home and I am sure that he will be as good a manager as he was a player.

BS: Well, Luther how does it feel to be back at the club after all of these years?

LB: I'm shocked, I accepted the offer as soon as I got it as I knew this would probably be my best chance of getting back into Football.

BS: Well, thank you for the interview Mr Blissett and I wish you well in your managerial career with Watford!

Well, that went suprisingly well.
