Whatever your view on Brexit I think that May was always on a loser, no on can deliver Brexit as too many people have agendas
|Saints Player For Sale|

I would say that we have the following all of whom we would consider offers on
Not all would go and there are some on there that the club would not want to lose, but might be prepared to if the right offer came along in the right circumstances
In defence for example, if the club sold Hoedt, Yoshida and Stephens but brought in two quality players then add Bednarek and Vestagaard and we have 4 players for three positions plus Klarer coming through the ranks.
I know some will say this is my Yoshida bias again, but far from it, we need to clear the decks and if we want to improve we have to do so
Likewise in the centre of midfield we have six players for three positions at least one out of Armstrong/Lemina/Romeu has to go purely due to numbers

I remember him under Souness wasn't much cop, his name was mentioned a year ago for us but felt that he was not experienced enough having never managed in England.
Brighton have appointed him but is 10th in the Championship for Swansea in his one season in England enough grounding for the Premier League after all the Swans never really looked like getting into the play offs

We seem to be losing a lot of local dialect, back in the late 60's & early 70's it was still there, but somewhere in the mid 70's it started to die out, as kids started to shun some traditional phrases and prefer the language of pop stars.
So what phrases were there, Mush is one of them, when i was a kid the stock greeting was "Acha Mush" or perhaps "Atcha Mush" which was a sort of local version of how are you mate..... it was never written down
Mush is still brought up and although the word is not used that often anymore there is a mini revival of sorts.
It is apparently a romany word, although i'm told that the word was used so often that the Liverpool crew members of the big boats used to refer to their Southampton counterparts as Mushes, much as they were referred to as Scousers.
It was never a Pompey phrase at least not amongst seafarers where the crews were either scousers, mushes, cockneys, brummies or geordies, if you were from anywhere else you didn't have a name
Going back to Acha Mush, as I say as a kid it was the stock greeting Itoook it to be a shortened version of how are you and you would always refer to another person as a mush ie "that mush over there" etc.
So who remembers this, many of you will either be too young or perhaps not local enough, I think it was a dialect that didn't travel much outside of the city boundaries.
|Saints, Spurs & Liverpool|

With the connections to both clubs, how many have a connection to Saints, Liverpool and Spurs having played or managed at all three
I will start with Graeme Souness

|What A Shame|
at 21:43 16 May 2019
Bit of a let down for them and they look set to get fined for the fan kicking the player when he fell in the crowd
|About 400 Tickets Left|

|There Is No Easy Way To Say This !|

A man gets over by a red lorry. Then he gets run over by a yellow lorry. Then a red lorry and then a yellow lorry.
A policeman informs his family, "There's no easy way to say this ...."
|European Final Ticket Allocations A Joke|
at 10:56 10 May 2019
Liverpool and Tottenham have each been allocated 16,613 tickets for the Champions League final in the 68,000-capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid.
But if you think that is poor then look at the Europa League Arsenal and Chelsea have each been allocated just 6,000 tickets for the Europa League final at the 68,700 Olympic Stadium in Baku.
I think all four clubs should boycott the final in protest
|Klopp Or Hasenhuttl ???|
at 09:30 8 May 2019
So may people seem to hate Klopp but love Hasenhuttl, given that they are so similar the question is why ?
Klopp forgets to shake the hand of the opposing manager and runs on the pitch and its arrogance, Hasenhuttl does it and it's passion
