    I feel that the fans will do absolutely nothing at the last home game in the Premier league.
    A few will boo, but most will applaud enthusiastically. It is just how the STH's are and those that go to home games, but never go to away games.
    It is a sad time for all fans. I am not sure the club will listen to the fans or have learnt any lessons to make the future different for Watford FC.

    Let's really show them
    A mixture of muted singing, some of the songs being sarcastic about how **** we are, and a bit of muttering.

    Booing mixed with clapping at full time once we lose our 12th in a row.

    That will show them

    It had better, because it's all we will get. .

    however misdirected, I'd love for 90 minutes of deafening invective directed at Hodgson, but it just won't happen.

    Just watching Wednesday v Sunderland league 1 playoff. Both clubs much bigger than our tinpot club. Sunderland already sold 20k season tickets for next yr. Whilst the owners /club definitely deserve criticism, they also should get some praise for getting 2 promotions and 6 yrs of PL football

    Well, you will certainly be clapping like demented seal and kissing the *ss of the players.

    They have also put the club into so much debt it may never recover and made the place a complete laughing stock within the game.

    You utter side salad.

    Booooooooo.

    And how did they get in that state? Oh yes, they had a sustained period in the Premier League, got complacent, screwed up recruitment and general management of the club and before they knew what was happening slipped down to League 1. They should act as a warning of what could very easily happen in the next few years if our owners don't wake the **** up, but instead of seeing it as a warning the seals in our fan base see it as a marker of how good we have things.

    Our squad is so thin, our finances are so unstable and our owners are so blinkered that we might be the next Sunderland.

    Honestly just don't go. It's not like we have anything to play for anymore so they don't 'need' the support. But it would be nice for Gino and Scott to be in the ground and notice a load of empty seats. Whether they'll care or not is another matter.

    Under Boothroyd I'm pretty sure we still sold out when we were already relegated. Fans were connected and knew we'd given it our all. Complete opposite now. It's like they're ripping the soul out the club.

    Still no communication from the club since Saturday either which is disgraceful. If the next tweet is another "on this day" looking back at better times I may punch a wall.

    Liked for side salad.
    I have never heard of this expression before.
    I have a boy in my 4.30pm group tonight who will undoubtedly be called this later!
    He's a daft sap.

    Whilst I would love for the club to be transparent and open on social media I wouldn’t hope for any tweets. There’s probably an editorial calendar with a week full of posts scheduled in the week before with players birthday’s that we barely see and throwbacks to results 10 years ago. We only use social media freehand when Scott decides we need to apologise to Gary Lineker or defend Troy Deeney from gossip.

    I think empty seats is the only way to go. They will care because ticket sales are down and so will be sales of watered down beer, pies, club shop tat etc. An impact on the balance sheet is the only way they will notice.

    That or a pitch invasion.

    I dont think empty seats matter. The SEJ has been a third empty since October. Two games to go, cant see it being anything to raise there eyebrows for. Could some concerted effort of public humiliation. Can we get one of those petitions going where parliament has to discuss; “The appalling impact of overseas ownership on English football club Watford FC”. Only need a 100,00o signatories. should be able to leverage in lots of disgruntled Man Utd fans. Might make the news and demonstrate to the regime how badly they are thought of.

    I think they have bigger issues to debate tbh...

    But never know - might fit in it between all the world wide issues going on and lock down party gate.

    Not going to games would work but only if we get less than when they first came in playing in the Championship.

    What will hurt them is the executive boxes not being sold for x thousands next season and all the fancy bars being empty.

    A lot do in some sections of the ground.

    Be interesting to see how much season ticket sale drops now the big boys aren't coming.
