Could well be, he must have completed it since the article in March then, I still haven't listened to the interview yet but I do hope to.
Or it might be that Brown was thinking ahead, looking at it as a long-term link up with Taylor? FWIW, you only need the Pro License to manage in the Premiership, you can manage in the League with an A Licence, which he already has. Although obviously, it's a bonus for recruiting new players to be able to say the manager, asst manager and player coach all have the Pro Licence.

According to that reliable rumour twitter account Matty Taylor is signing a new contract.  Which is nice.

Yes. Unsurprising but nice nonetheless. Yes

That'd be my guess as well. Looks good on paper.

I seen the fans voice GWR tweeted Taylor is set to sign a coaching contract at Watford. Where have they plucked that from?

Edit - Seems to be a different twitter account for GWR as opposed to the ‘official’ one.

Wasn't one of the reasons Taylor moved to us that he was closer to his home in Abingdon or some Oxfordshire village as he was fed up travelling too far?

Surely that would be doubling his journey?

Could be true and maybe he needs the break from us as there is no coaching position available yet for him.

I guess it depends on whether he wants to carry on playing.  If he doesn't and that wouldn't be a surprise, as at times last season he looked completely knackered, then a gig at Watford would be a good starting place for a coaching career.

It was that sense that here's a fella, still giving it his all which endeared him to most fans.  It would be completely understandable if he thinks he can't do another season.

He was very fit person over all and when on form a great player at this level even with his legs almost gone, but as you say at times he looked ready for the scrapheap but then other times he looked 21 again.

At 36 and a half there can't be many more games left in him.

Watford do have a history of good youth coaching so if he goes in at that level then that would be a good grounding if we cannot offer him similar.

Good news.

Have to admit, having no particular memory of Neil either as player or coach/manager/cone carrier.  We've had some interesting characters down the years, tasked with cone collecting. These days, they don't seem to last more than 5 minutes.
