More than 9,500 Watford fans renewed their season tickets during the two-week Earlybird window.

The period between April 5 and April 19, which covered three home matches, enabled supporters to buy their ticket for the 2014/15 campaign at an increase of three per cent on average.

Season ticket sales are currently suspended and the supporters who plan to buy their seat when they go on sale on Friday can expect another small increase on the Earlybird rate, with the new prices released tomorrow.

This year's current total is around 200 more than after last summer's Earlybird deadline, when the figure was 9,356.

Season ticket sales resume on Friday through three methods; by calling 01923 223023, in person at the ticket office and online, although new applicants are unable to do so online until after the Huddersfield Town game on May 3, when seats not renewed will be released.

Tickets will now go to a single price whereas in previous years there has been a second renewal price and different sums for new applicants during the Earlybird window.

Watford have more than 12,000 season ticket holders this season - the first time that has happened since the Hornets’ Premier League campaign in 2006/2007.

The Golden Boys insist they will adhere to the East Stand 'move-back promise' made under a previous regime.

Fans who want to go back or those who are keen to move to the East Stand next season are asked to renew in their current seat and they will have a chance to swap during a 'movement window' at the end of the season.

Whilst davecowling is quite clearly an idiot maybe in jest he does raise an interesting 'what if' point, namely could WFC now be in the Prem if Dyche had been kept as manager?

Maybe Dyche wouldnt have been able to succeed as well if he had stayed, we'll never know.

I'm actually happy for Dyche and his success in getting Burnley promoted but I cant help believing that WFC will get there too. Hopefully next year and once in the Prem we'll have a better chance of staying up than Burnley will have next season

Well the sales figures for season ticket renewals is not great news and well short of the 12,000 figure for this season. Just hope that more season cards are renewed after the early bird window. Renapp said some nice things about us on the Football League show, but then he can be gracious when QPR have beaten us? All I hope for next season, is no more rubbish loans. We need stability and guys that are proud to wear the yellow shirt or the away strip.

Sean Dyche has done a fantastic job with limited resources and for me is the Championship manager of the year. The imposing appearance , gravely voice and reputation as a no nonsense defender belies his deep thinking approach to the game, tactical appreciation and outstanding man management capabilities. I often think about what if he had stayed but as you say we will never know. I share your confidence that we will get promotion soon, marginally short of the goal last year and despite set backs this year I still believe we have the nucleus of a squad to go the distance next year. So well done Sean and Beppe...for different reasons..My season ticket already renewed and judging by performances against Ipswich and QPR it will again be money well spent. Can't help feeling that we will pass Burnley going in opposite directions some time soon. COYH

Well done to Sean. The best manager in the division. Burnley will struggle but I hope they don't panic and reward Dyche with the sack in order to bring in a clapped out former big name. They will struggle to find someone with a brighter future.

I like Dyche and he did an excellent job for us and Burnley. But as the QPR season ticket holder in the office said to me today. Who bought Ings, Volkes, etc for Burnley and who is doing an excellent job at Bournemouth. I doubt that Dyche would have minded swapping the manager for head coach role that went with getting the back up at Watford the Pozzo's have brought with improved facilities and squad. I hope he does well next year and is not sacked by a fickle board if resuklts hit a sticky patch. Virtually all the bottom half of the Premiership have changed managers this year, so the odds are not good. Lets see where we and Burnley are in two years time before making the what ifs comparisons.

I am a little concerned as there are still 2,500 season ticket holders that haven't renewed yet. If you don't renew during the early bird offer, when do you renew? Last season, a lot of supporters took out season tickets after the early bird offer in hope that we would be in the Prem. That's not going to happen this year.

A second season is always tougher than the first - you see it in many sports and with many individual sportsmen. Performances improved after the mid-season slump when we started to have a settled team. Much credit to Tozser's influence and Deeney's fighting spirit. We will be a force next season if we can keep these two, get Abdi fit and fine tune our resource management by adding a few quality players. The worst aspect of this season has been the match time wasted by fielding loanees of questionable application to the demands of the Championship.

And not forgetting the unlucky Malky who was treated despicably by Vincent Tan after a great promo season last year with Cardiff.

Luton having an open top bus parade for winning the conference has to be the funniest thing I've heard in ages. Bless em.
The open top bus will have more seats than their stadium

Why are we talking about the scummers? This is why...

The scummers are bummers,
They live up the motorway,
They like to snog their sisters,
And their mothers along the way.

They all have six fingers, two heads and no brain,
They are no thick, when they get relegated they feel no pain,
They are perverted, they treat everyone with disdain,
They get excited when they see sheepies, on their sheets they leave a stain.

Poor old Luton, it's a dump, full of junk,
They sleep with each other, they smell of ****,
They've got a small airport, it's plastic and it's covered in gunk,
So I implore you to ignore them, they really are a bunch of inbred punks.

I thank you
HC

You heard it here first folks.
Not sure about Deeney but Vydra is a very strong rumour.
