Mistake from them there. He's a great manager.

I suspect he was burned out.

Agreed. When everything that once worked with a group of players stops working, after that long in charge, I can understand him looking for a break, and them looking for a fresh start.

Edit: Agreed about the second point, like BB said, it seems like one of the legitimate mutual parting of ways, and not just a PR line to save face for the manager.

They didn’t fire him, they both agreed it was time to part ways.

Watford look set to appoint Vladimir Ivic as the new manager.

Bit of a risk.

No manager hire is a risk for a club if they're happy to can them 3 months later. I wonder how many managers they're paying right now? <laugh>

Maybe Pardew will declare an interest with his extensive experience of Dutch football...

Sometimes picking a Barca player works, like Pep, sometimes leaning on past legends is a crutch that might break, like Koeman.

Yep, they like people with 'Barcelona DNA'.
