Why Watford should have signed Danny Rose
Watford are currently languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table with just one point in 4 games.
The Hornets will be breathing a sigh of relief at the end of this week after getting a win in the League Cup and a point away from home just before the international break. Now, they can take a little break to contemplate on what can be done to improve.
One thing that’ll worry Watford boss, Javi Gracia, is that they have an ageing squad and no one is more symbolic of it than their left full-back Jose Holebas.
The 35-year-old Greek international has been a fantastic servant to the club but Watford need to find a proper replacement and were linked in the summer with Spurs’ Danny Rose.
Rose, 29, is still one of the best left-backs in the league despite struggling a little with injuries in the last couple of years. He hasn’t been able to capture the form of the 2016/17 season in recent seasons but was still a very big part of the Spurs side that made it to the Champions League final in the summer.
He made 37 appearances in all competitions and has appeared in all the games so far this season. Last season, he registered 5 assists in all competitions but that’s a figure that can very easily be improved upon.
Rose is also an England international, who was part of the squad that made it into the 2018 World-cup semi-final. His experience would’ve been great for Watford, who are being led by some very ambitious owners and a very good coach in Javi Gracia.
Rose is a typical modern full-back, who loves to bombard the flanks and put in low crosses. He can also take set-pieces and his aggression will rub off on his teammates. He has never been the most defensively astute full-back but has become better over the years at that side of his game by gaining some experience.

He also has leadership qualities and would be available on the cheap as he’s on the final year of his contract. Watford should’ve tried harder to sign him up in the summer.
