The Championship is "not good enough" for Watford's fans and Beppe Sannino will endeavour to deliver Premier League football to the club's supporters, according to the head coach.

The Hornets fans were in fine voice at Loftus Road as they outsung QPR's supporters for the majority of yesterday's 2-1 defeat.

Sannino was the subject of a couple of chants by the Watford fans, with the most popular to the tune of Spandau Ballet's 'Gold'.

The Hornets' head coach was asked about the fans' chants about him in his post-match press conference.

He replied: "I have to say sorry to the supporters because sometimes I can’t repay their singing because I am too focussed on the match.

"Today the fans showed me that they deserve to be Premier League fans. The Championship is not good enough for them.

"I don’t know what will happen in the future but I will really try to gift the supporters Premier League football."

he's a good manager. He has come up the hard way, lower league player who never got given anything he didn't work his socks off for. Also could have sat on full pay till 2015 but tore that up to work for us, in a country where he doesn't speak the language, doesn't have his family etc. He's got guts - I say we stick with him

Not convinced about his capabilities but like the bloke and hope he stays for another season. Our tendency to defend too deep once in front and invite the opposition to attack has cost us a playoff place - if we are going to put in a successful challenge next season we will need to sort this out. The other 22 teams will be wiser to us and we will need to step up again.

Yes, I did too. Cheered me up in the first week after our chances of reaching the play-offs finally evaporated. No one else did though - don't know why.

Looks like we've got Uncle Fester for another season then. I say that's good news.

Essex Hornet says...

If we can make a good song out of "Gold" by Spandau Ballet what about trying something with another Spandau classic "True"

So Beppe funny how it seems
Always a Hornet always have time to dream
We are the golden boys from Vicarge Road
We are the Horns We are the Horns

Took a trip around the world but I stayed true to the Horns
To see Beppe and the Golden boys again
We are the Hornsn we're on a roll we are the Horns

Obviously need a bit of help with the lyrics. Elton where are you??

Yes your right. From looking at the -3 rating I think I'll stick to the day job and leaving the writing to Bernie.

Poetry time folks. I am feeling inspired this morning. My juices are flowing and my fat face is glowing....

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
