Despite all the denials, ex-Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli, is widely tipped to be announced as new Watford FC manager on May 2, 2001.
Retiring Graham Taylor will see his successor appointed at a press conference at Vicarage Road on Wednesday.
One question everyone should be asking is...Elton said he would return to back Watford in a consortium a few years ago on the understanding that he could bring back Graham Taylor to restore the Golden Days of the 1980s. In the late 1990s, the duo of "Elton's Taylor Made Army" did just that.
But with Taylor heading for the exit tunnel, will Elton stay on and give his full support to Watford?
The press conference on May 2, 2001, may well be the time for journalists to ask!
But tonight, the team was celebrating a convincing win over Gillingham.
