Is being linked with a move to Everton. He looked great earlier in the season but then tailed off didn’t he?

Southampton City of Culture

It’s announced today if they are successful or not.

Obviously it would be great for the city if they won, but can’t help but hope that any funding they possibly receive for it isn’t given to the city council who couldn’t organise a piss up in the brewery.

Anyway, it’s announced on the One Show later, so may have Jenas involved as a heads up.

The Race for 15th

Is really hotting up now, I imagine that the build up on SKY will reach a crescendo come Sunday lunchtime. I think that extra point in the bag will see Saints okay though.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing you at SMS/Goodison next season.

Eastleigh v Southend
at 09:00 23 Feb 2022

Went there last night, first time I’ve been to an Eastleigh game.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, but couldn’t quite work out the Eastleigh fans. Are they Saints fans who follow both, seemed to be a lot of scarfers and a healthy young scally wannabe crowd for that level including a crowd rousing drummer that was only interrupted in the first half by a woman going round selling raffle tickets.

Loads of throwback to the eighties of “you’re shit ah” towards the goalie with a few coke bottles thrown onto the pitch to keep up with the current trend.

Strange but enjoyable set up.

Child Friendly pubs pre/post match
at 17:21 16 Feb 2022

My ten year old nephew is coming down on Saturday for his first Everton away game, any advice on pubs that will let him/us in?

He’s had a season ticket since he was three so he’s used to going to pubs and the swearing etc (not to mention the disappointment).

Any advice?

Southampton Marathon

Did any of you lot do the marathon yesterday? There were a load of Saints tops in attendance, obviously.

I did the 10k for the first time, which is probably the most I could ever do given my dodgy ankles. Thought the atmosphere was brilliant, it was a cracking community event.

Aside from the result
at 18:41 16 Aug 2021

How was your trip up to Woodison? I met a few Saints fans on the train back into town and they seemed to be having a good time, apart from the 90 minutes.

Getting into the ground wasn’t the issue I thought it would be and town was bouncing all night. Felt like a proper post COVID night out.

*Waves white flag*

Morning All, hope all travelling Saints got back home okay and those stayed over haven’t got too bad a head this morning.

Strange game yesterday showing that both teams are way off where they need to be by the time the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

The first half was fairly passive until Everton’s centre half’s reminded us why they aren’t the first choice pairing. Great finish from Armstrong who looked lively all game. At half time I couldn’t see anything other than a Saints victory, but both teams came out differently, Everton with more intensity and Saints less so and Saints defence especially the centre halves wobbled.

As the game drifted at one each, I thought Saints had the stronger bench with the players to win, but fair play to Benitez for changing it and Iwobi looked really lively and Everton had a ten minute spell that took the game away from Saints whose defence cracked.

All in all, I’d say Everton just about deserved it for going for it, if nothing else. Saints made subs too late to effect the game. Was Armstrong v1 not fit? Thought he’d have made a difference. Walcott gave us a reminder of his time at Goodison with an ineffectual display. Everyone I spoke to after the game raved about Livremento, he looks absolute class. How frustrating that he plays in the same position as KWP.

Anyway Saints have only got a few more games to play at the Goodison bogey ground before the move to BMD. Have a nice day!

Did anyone go on Friday night?

I went and although I was quite sceptical, thoroughly enjoyed it. Really good atmosphere, very exciting and entertaining game and no thought or worry of a pandemic for a couple of hours as there was very little, if any, social distancing. It was the first ‘normal’ night I’ve had out since March 2020.

He’s walked away from talks to be the new Celtic manager.

With a 33 man provisional squad named, that’s a bit of a surprise. Unless they couldn’t risk his injuries this season.

Walcott
at 12:58 12 May 2021

Apparently he’s getting offered a two year deal at Saints? Has he been any good? From when I’ve watched Saints this season he’s disappeared in most games when starting or been injured. I know he’s on a free and all that, but he’s going to want big bucks.

Are you all happy with the signing?

I thought he’d do the year here then go for an easy life on the MLS, maybe he likes the easier life at SMS?

Anyone got any?

A week travelling round Wales in June for me, five days near Barafundle Beach and then three days in Snowdonia, all self catering and keeping out of the way of people, hopefully.

Then got days off in July/August hosting family and friends on the Costa Del Solent.

Sounds like going abroad is going to be a ball ache.

Ings to Everton in swap deal
at 06:46 1 Apr 2021

Heard a strong rumour that Ings will be off to Everton in the summer in a swap deal with Walcott, Delph, Kenny and Cenk Tosun.

Ralf is all over it as it will be guaranteed players in which he wouldn’t get if it were a cash deal with Goa keeping the money.

More than a rumour to be fair, from someone very much ITK.

Of Ageus or whatever it’s called.

Has anyone ever watched a game from the balconies at the Hilton. My brother and family are staying there during one of the hundred games this summer and I’m hoping to watch it from there, being a mingebag and all.

Are they strict with guests rocking up?
