So, Gino Pozzo has told Watford fans to relax and enjoy the ride. The Pozzos have a vision, a project, and soon Watford will only sell their young players to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid - just like Udinese.
As Pozzo talks about developing new talent and aiming for the top half of the Prem - comparing Watford to Udinese - everything sounds wonderful. Watford fans desperate for good news will be lapping this up. Just like we lapped up the "project" when it was explained to us so enthusiastically at Upton Park.
The trouble is, Pozzo has downgraded the Watford Academy - hardly a commitment to developing local young talent - and will not put a time frame on the project. Watford fans must stop worrying and trust to the fact that Godot will arrive some day. But when, when, when?
Well as Pozzo says in Beckett's play, "Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time! It's abominable! When! When! One day, is that not enough for you, one day he went dumb, one day I went blind, one day we'll go deaf, one day we were born, one day we shall die, the same day, the same second, is that not enough for you? (Calmer.) They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more. (He jerks the rope.) On!"
