Shane Long at Bournemouth
at 19:20 13 Apr 2021

Long seems to have gone from late sub to extra man on the bench to not even on the bench at Bournemouth. I guess he's no longer good enough for the Championship. How much longer is left on his contract? If we will still have to pay his wages next year, I don't think we'll find a Championship side willing to take him on loan and League 1 and 2 sides won't be able to afford his wages. We could end up paying him all of his Premier League salary to play for a team in the lower leagues.

Currently watching Romeo & Juliet on Sky Arts, starring one of the most familiar faces on stage, TV and cinema screen, Saints' fan, Josh O'Connor, as Romeo. For such a young actor he's certainly had a fair amount of success packed into his career.

Well this was wishful thinking:


Violence in Northern Ireland is very much in the news again. Hopefully, we can keep our troops out of it but the police are in for a torrid time:

Fonte v Pochettino
at 10:59 5 Apr 2021

Massive match in Paris this weekend which may well have decided who wins the league this year. Fonte's Lille team beat Pochettino's PSG 1-0 to go 3 points clear at the top.
Saints' 16th Semi-Final
at 14:10 20 Mar 2021

Great performance and we're through to our 16th major semi-final (13 FA Cup & 3 League Cup). Can Forster take us all the way without conceding a goal?

An unwanted double?
at 11:46 15 Mar 2021

Something I've noticed over the years is teams, like Portsmouth and Middlesbrough, losing a cup final and getting relegated. Admittedly, it tends to happen more with league cup finals, where the effect of losing has a negative impact on the remaining league matches. But, it happens with the FA Cup too. Losing an FA Cup semi-final and getting relegated would probably be more common though, as there are still league matches remaining afterwards.

How many teams has it happened to?

Of course, on a slightly more positive note, there are also teams, like Wigan and Swansea, who won a cup final and got relegated.

Both Saints and Sheffield United are still in the running to add themselves to the list.

Purple patches
at 12:19 19 Feb 2021

Gabbiadini's purple patch for us in 2017 got me thinking about other strikers who had one in their career but never scored much before or after that. One that stands out for me is the Tony Funnell scoring spree which got us promoted in 1978.

Bournemouth/Everton - there is a pathway available now but we have to beat Wolves.
James Ward-Prowse's goal
at 22:17 6 Feb 2021

What a thing of beauty his goal was. He is the best goal scorer from free-kicks in the Premier League and, probably, the world. He is on course to break David Beckham's record.
