Vladimir Ivic’s men certainly set the tone on the pitch with an up-tempo performance against Tottenham Hotspur.
Added the Hornets’ CEO: “We’re delighted with the work of our new Head Coach in establishing the values and culture that will be key to the team’s success as this season plays out.
“There is a very positive and fresh feel to the training ground environment right now, meaning it’s much easier to identify and eliminate any smaller issues as they arise.”
And, off the pitch, the club’s new live video streaming service ‘Hive Live’ played out to nearly 10,000 Hornets’ fans in England and around the world.
Duxbury noted: “We were delighted so many of our supporters saw fit to support us in a virtual sense.
“Along with nearly 12,000 to have paid a deposit ready to buy a new Season Ticket, much positive sentiment has been generated as we head towards Friday’s big kick-off.”
