Masochistic Watford fans eagerly anticipate season of intense thrashings

WATFORD supporters cannot wait to be treated like dirt by the giants of the Premier League.

After securing a place in the top-flight, Hornets fans began to fantasise about watching their team get thrashed by a much better club in front of a baying crowd.

Supporter Roy Hobbs said: “I dream of playing a side who dominate possession entirely and can break down our defence at will.

“I can’t stop thinking about a powerful Arsenal side pinning us back in our own half unable to get a touch of the ball.”

Season ticket holder Julian Cook said: “I have this daydream where we’re getting beaten 4-0 by Chelsea at half-time and they haven’t even brought on Eden Hazard – he’s just sitting there ready to be unleashed.

“And who doesn’t fantasise about seeing his team relegated by Christmas after conceding a late, scrappy equaliser at St James’ Park?

“That would be so hot.”
