Now the dust has settled I wanted to express how disappointed me and the lads are about relegation. I honestly never thought it’d happen,but the table doesn’t lie. Fair play to Villa, 8 points from the last 4 games is some going. Either way we’ll have it right off in the champo

Watford will be looking to bounce back straight from the Championship next season.
The Hornets do have a good team, but it remains to be seen if they are able to keep hold of their best players for the 2020-21 campaign.
As for Villa, the Villans will know that they have been lucky not to go straight back down to the Championship.
Dean Smith’s side will be expected to do much better in the Premier League next season.
