And it seems that I can't leave the ranch without things going to pot, I leave for a birthday bash in Mexico as you do, and we are unbeaten in 25 games.
I go and we lose two out of three and although Meatloaf might think that ain't bad it is in my book.
Mexico was ok, managed to find a sports bar to watch the two televised game in and someone had an app to get the Hull game

A big one tonight as Saints look to get their show back on the road after the disappointment on Tuesday night
|When Is A Sell Out Not A Sell Out
at 21:07 10 Feb 2024
Last season our sell out crowd is about 31,150 ish as it was for the a couple of games and last game of the season against Liverpool.
Today it was 29,863, some 1,300 less than last season, granted that the away section was far from full, but I cant see where they would have got another 1,300 in, given that all the home areas were sold out and there werent that many seats empty in the corporate areas
|Aribo & Tall Paul Reach AFCON Final
at 22:47 7 Feb 2024
Nigeria beat South Africa on Penalties, Aribo came on as a sub in extra time and Tall Paul was an unused sub.
The final will be played on Sunday, so Aribo should be back in the squad for the trip to West Brom and just as the games start to come thick and fast
|Renaming Roads In Southampton
at 21:34 7 Feb 2024
Perhaps a few roads could be renamed in the City after some of our greats, some for instance would not need to be changed much.
Mardale Road in Millbrook would only need a slight change to Maradale Road, Matt Oakley Road in Shirley, Gerry Forest Hills Drive, Steve Woodmill Lane, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain Road,
There must be a few more out there
|Another First Last Night
at 15:40 7 Feb 2024
Not only a Club record of 24 games unbeaten in our history, not just the Football league era, but also the first time we have qualified for the 5th round of the FA Cup in four consecutive seasons.
To quote a Neil Young album title

|Line up Changes
at 09:02 7 Feb 2024
Saints had four in the side last night from the starting line up on Saturday and Watford also had 4, but of the 6 subs used 5 Watford subs had started their game, whereas of our 5 subs only the two Armstrongs started at Rotherham
TUI bringing you all the facts
|Watford Cup Replay Matchday Thread
at 14:22 6 Feb 2024
As it looks like there will be a low crowd and a lot will be watching on line here is today's matchday thread
at 12:53 6 Feb 2024
From what i have seen we have sold only around 12,500 tickets in the home sections for this evening, plus corporate areas which might at a push give us 13,000 tickets sold.
Watford took an initial allocation of only around 2,200, I am not sure if they sold these or asked for any more, certainly Saints haven't put the other block of the away section to make up the 2,800 normal allocation on sale at all.
|EFL Team OF The Week
at 16:57 5 Feb 2024
Only Jan Bednarek got in from Saints, noticed Kieffer Moore got in on his debut for Ipswich, he got two goals but only played for about the last 20 mins and finished on the losing side, something wrong with the choice there
|5 Things From Rotherham
at 11:01 5 Feb 2024
1. The ground looks a lot bigger from the outside than it does the inside and is very near to the town centre and a few pubs.
2. The old ground is still there, apparently it can't be used to build houses on so hasnn't been knocked down.
3. It was funny at the train station afterwards, both platforms were full of Saints fans, some going to Doncaster for the train to London and the others going the other way to Sheffield for their train.
4. The support up there was very good from the right side of the away end, but not so good from the left side, as you will know if you were there, still too many songs about Pompey though
5. Their support was quiet, we had about 25% of the total crowd there and by the end probably about 60% of those left in the stadium

I had previously posted that he was considered a bit of a failure for Bayer Leverkusen having not started a game for them in the Bundesliga.
He got his first start in this competition on Saturday and scored both goals against Darmstadt in a 2-0 win away from home.
So hopefully he will start to prosper there
|Charly At Juventus

89th minute sub for Juventus in a 1-0 defeat at Inter
at 23:01 1 Feb 2024
Look like we keep Che Adams & KWP, so all in all a good window where we have strengthened in some areas
