So Effing P!ssed Off!!
at 21:46 20 Apr 2024

Just got back, what a ridiculous result against Cardiff reserves. Just spent £160 on Leeds tickets for myself and family members because the team gave us hope with 3 home wins, we didn't want to miss possible celebrations of promotion at Elland Road, then they f@cking lose to Cardiff reserves and miss about 10 open goals! Are they just teasing us. I wouldn't have bothered spending all that money for Leeds for a meaningless game and saved it for the play offs. Lost to Ipswich, automatics gone, fine accepted, then they give us hope again and then crashing back down again!!!

If they were going to not turn up today, and players who have played in the PL were going to miss open goals from 2 yards, why did they bother beating Watford in the 99th minute? Why didn't they settle for a play off place a few games ago and save us a whole lot of money, stress and hope? Why give us all hope, to f@ck up yet again? We didn't even get out of 2nd gear today. So soft, so lame, no aggressive play.

I've now got to go to Leeds, probably watch all their fans celebrate promotion in our faces and then spend a whole load of more money on play off tickets and then a possible day at Wembley. When we then probably f@ck it up anyway, they will then want another £600 each for season tickets, unless I move to the Northam.

Cue all the blame on RM, and he has to take his fair share of the blame but honestly can professional players not just tap the ball into an empty net in a big game against Cardiff's reserves?

Yours Sincerely

Thoroughly P!ssed Off Southamptonfan.

Predictions. Wishful thinking, naive or realistic chance?
at 15:10 7 Apr 2024

As has been stated in another thread, whoever finishes 3rd, probably on the final day, will feel pig sick. I am going to predict that finishing 4th will do us a favour, rather than missing out on the final day with an inevitable defeat at Elland Road. I think we will stutter for a few games, then finish the season strong as the reality of going up via the play offs becomes clear and we prepare. So here is my prediction, and I hope this is how it plays out, as would rather have Ipswich in the day offs, feeling sorry for themselves after a great season.

1st Leicester City
2nd Leeds United
3rd Ipswich Town
4th Southampton
5th West Brom
6th Norwich

Play offs
Ipswich v Norwich - Norwich win
West Brom v Saints - Saints win

Saints beat Norwich at Wembley in a sea of yellow and red colour. But the reds win the end. We would have had time to prepare, we have better players than the others on our day.

So, there we have it, we get promoted. I know I know, it's Saints we will probably blow it, but I had to cheer myself up!!!

Don't get behind the team, we'll throw you out
at 18:13 29 Mar 2024





Club and club's stewards disgrace themeselves once again. Two guys who have been banging on the advertising boards for 5 years plus (all innocent stuff, just getting behind the team) suddenly get told to sit down and get thrown out because they were in the way of a few fans for less than a minute. It almost caused a riot the way the stewards dealt with this. Fans rushing down the tunnel and turning on a stewards and fans gathering around the stewards at the end of the game. Away fans in the home end, they can stay. Get behind the Saints and you're out. Despair with this club.

Glad to see the applause and standing ovation for Nicholl on the 77th minute. Again disgrace from the club. Nothing mentioned.

And then there is f@cking Adams!!! Just to top the day off.

A day in the life of Ryan Manning.

https://www.southamptonfc.com/en/video/day-in-the-life-ryan-manning

- Massive house and garden
- A massive expensive car
- Free breakfast and free lunch every day
- A gorgeous dog
- An afternoon trip to a bar to play darts.
- Just a couple of hours playing football in the morning.

Not a bad job I would say for 50 grand a week.

Our competitive competitions NOT

So Liverpool win the league cup. The winners of the FA Cup will be Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City or Man United. And the PL will be won by Man City, Liverpool or Arsenal. And who won the cups last season and the season before? I am glad to be out. No chance of winning it, it's just the truth unfortunately. People are living in a different universe if they think any other team can win anything. Let's concentrate on the league.

Planned Stadium Changes Released
at 17:53 27 Feb 2024

https://www.southamptonfc.com/en/st-marys-stadium-developments?

Away fans will be in the corner and on the side. They won't be behind the goal at all. Great to remove away fans from behind the goal, I think. But the plans bring about one dilemma. The fans that want to stand and sing, are likely to also want to be near the away fans arn't they?

So, why not have the safe standing in the Chapel, so that all the singers and standers are together, but also next to away fans?

Disgraceful fans. It all kicked off at the end of Brittannia Road. Police with batons drawn. I was walking with the wife and they called her a tart, spitting at us, they were attacking our fans. Nasty tw@ts. Anyone saying the police operation was over the top, is very wrong. I'm sure this will be in the echo when they've trashed the city centre.

West Brom fans saying Southampton are the best fans they have seen at the Hawthorns for a long time. Unfortunately, I wasn't there tonight, chose Bristol City instead. Oh well never mind, the result feels just as good.

Also saying that our away performance was "classy". I would agree. It was a thoroughly professional performance. But well done to the fans on a Friday night.

Dam, I can't make that now. Will have to watch on TV. It's also dependent on whether either team gets to the quarter finals of the cup.

Season defining moment
at 17:49 10 Feb 2024

That was one of the best games I can remember at St Mary's
We powered onto victory like champions. Great subs, great goals, absolute carnage celebrating those goals. At 3 2 I thought that was it. I think this game could be the most vital come back in many a year. Never had such fun in a season. 😜

Remaining Away Games
at 14:04 4 Feb 2024

Some of these allocations for tickets seem really small. Only 2000 tickets for Ipswich away will be nowhere near what we would take. In the build up to the final few crunch games, demand for tickets is going to be unreal. What do we think will get you a ticket, 5 plus away games?

Bristol City - Sold Out

West Brom - Sold Out

Birmingham - Usual allocation = 2000 (This has changed from game to game, as they have been rebuilding during the season)

Leicester - Usual allocation = 3000

Ipswich - Usual allocation = 2100

Blackburn - Usual allocation = 7500

Cardiff - Usual allocation = 2200

Leeds - Usual allocation = Leeds tend to give the allocation that they receive, up to a maximum of 3000. But for such a huge game, will they do the dirty on us and only give 2000 tickets?

Blackburn away could be a great day out, with potentially a huge following going up there.

5 Things About Rotherham
at 20:52 3 Feb 2024

Sat on the coach, bored so here goes:

1) Never been to such a quiet place inside and outside the ground. Arrived 2 hours before kick off and there was about 5 people walking around the ground. Totally bizarre. I asked if the game had been called off. But no it got a bit busier later, obviously.

2) Great following from Saints fans. We had the whole end and we were noisy throughout.

3) Their old ground is literally a few minutes walk away, across the road. It's all still standing with floodlights and everything. Was talking to a Rotherham fan who said that the plan was to knock it down and build flats. Once the plan was finalised, it was found that the area was unsuitable for housing, and that the land can only be used for sport. So the ground remains.

4) Rotherham really is a very poor and destitute place. And I've been to some poor places. Anyone see any police? I saw hundreds at Millwall, very few if any at Rotherham.

5) Great away day. The ground is a mini St Mary's. Great selection of food and drink. The Rotherham fans were literally silent apart from a man with a hat. And those steps in the stand, weren't they steep!!!

Leicester/ Ipswich
at 14:54 21 Jan 2024

What do we want?

If Leicester win, we stay 2nd, but Leicester would be way ahead at the top.
If Ipswich win, both teams become catchable and the title race would get interesting. However, we would be three points behind Ipswich again and back into third.
If it's a draw, we go back to third, but it keeps Leicester just about catchable.
