Keep Calm Its Still Advantage Saints
Monday, 16th Apr 2012 09:34
This weekend wasnt great for Southampton Football Club, but after all the dust settled Saints are still in a great position to win promotion to the premier League.
West Ham United's win against Brighton wasnt totally unexpected, however the amount they won by was, prompting some Saints supporters to wonder if Gus Poyet actually instructed his team to roll over and gift the Hammers a few goals, that is probably unfair on the Seagull's boss, but the fact does remain that it virtually wiped out our goal difference advantage in one foul swoop.
However with three games left I would rather be three points & three goals ahead than the other way round and as much as Nigel Adkins will need to be telling his players to keep calm and hold their nerve, that applies as much to the supporters as well, our task is still the same as it ever was, we need to win two of the last three games and take a point from the other one.
Of course Tuesday night is a key night in the promotion battle and although its hard to see Reading dropping a point at home to Nottingham Forest or indeed to Crystal Palace on Saturday, a good win for Saints at Peterborough will steady the ship.
So the trip to London Road means two objectives, firstly secure the three poinys and then secondly rack up a few goals in the process and extend our goal difference, if we can do that then we can calm a few jitters and get back on track.
The last four games havent been great, of that there can be no doubt, but we dont have to do anything superhuman to secure a top two spot, all we need to do is keep on doing what we have done all season

pause for breath by basilrobbiereborn
Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.

So Christmas came and went and for many the lasting memory will be of Valeri Belokon breaking a long, self-imposed silence to send we supporters festive greetings.

Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
