Watford: Sir Elton John is ecstatic

After four games with four wins, Watford stands in third place in the English Premier League.
 It was the club before the season for the bookmaker one of the relegation candidates.
 In addition, there have been some noise in the past few years by machinations of the Pozzo family, which leads the club.



    Throughout his life, Sir Elton John has put himself into the service of Watford FC, whether as owner, fan or now honorary president. The British pop musician gave concerts, the revenue of which he left to the club. His involvement with the London suburban club, English championship runner-up in 1982/83, is in contrast to the appearance of other personalities who are out to make their mark in their stadium visits on the island. Years ago, Elton reminded John that he was angry that the game would be taken away from the people who loved it. Two weeks ago, the game came back to Elton John, as he had wished.


    On the side of the two sons, he experienced in the venue on the Vicarage Road, the success of his club over Tottenham Hotspur. When he hit the winner, he tore his arms in the air. "Life could not be more beautiful, I love Watford and I'm so proud of you," wrote Elton John on Instagram. With a starting record of four wins in four games in the highest English league, the relegation candidate has moved to third place in the table. Behind Chelsea and ahead of Manchester City, Watford is equal to a surprise guest in the top group with twelve points, with whom no one knows what to do. Before the meeting with Manchester United on prime-time Saturday, the Hornets, the hornets as they are known for their yellow and black jerseys, are puzzled: How did they get there?

"We are a club that has to fight against the odds of the bookmakers"


    Sebastian Prödl knows answers. For Watford, Austria's national player, worked in July 2015 free transfer from Bremen, working in defense. In addition to his work ethic stands out Prödl, 31, by down-to-earthness and vision. "The dream start has given us hope that the season will be carefree," he says: "We are a club that has to fight against the odds of bookmakers, and our club will be one of the first to be in the bottom of the league. And our coach is said to be one of the first to be fired, and sometimes we have to smile about it, because in England it can actually hit anyone. "


    For the first time after the rise in the Premier League in the summer of 2015 Watford has around the Italian family patriarch Giampaolo Pozzo, 77, who bought the former second division six years ago for half a million euros, in the transfer period, to exchange the regular employees. Only brought by relegated West Bromwich Ben Foster has played as a goalkeeper new to the team. The departure of the offensive Brazilian Richarlison to Everton for 40 million euros Watford caught on team spirit.


    The powerful style of play sets the opponents, the early attacking with two attackers has introduced the second most ball wins near the Tornähe. The relief benefits the defense, who suffered the least number of shots on goal. In José Holebas, 34, Watford owns the most conspicuous professional on the island. At the five goals of the left-back, who once played for the TSV 1860 Munich, nobody comes up.
