What A Great Season ! Now Make It Special !
Sunday, 15th May 2016 08:46
Despite turbulent times at the start of the season and a pre Xmas blip Saints have been magnificent in the New Year and pushed themselves right up the League, now they need to win one more game and hope that the luck is with us elsewhere.
Last summer there were once again many who went into meltdown about what the season would hold for Saints and the Victor Wanyama situation back in August fanned their flames, however Saints came through all of that and in the second half of the season both on and off the pitch showed that they have ambition.
Now it comes down to the final day and the team have to make sure that the party doesn't fall flat by dropping points to a Crystal Palace side who have a bigger game to think of.
Whatever the result though it has been a great season with some great highs and there can't be a Saints supporter with much to complain about.
Even if we lose we would still be 8th, but we want higher, the win that guarantees 7th and then perhaps the luck will go with us at either the Britannia Stadium or Old Trafford and we will get an automatic Europa League spot.
Each season we are making steady progress and building foundations and that is the way to do things in football. Qualifying to the Europa League is a natural step in that progression.
So lets see St Mary's rocking and Palace reeling and three points in the bag.

Although not an avid collector, I recently catalogued my collection of football memorabilia and I have 175 items, mostly programmes, some fanzines, and a few ticket stubs which aren’t accompanied by anything else. I have no idea how many more may have been misplaced during house moves, clear-outs etc., but the collection spans nearly 30 years (the earliest is the programme from our 1990 Boxing Day game against Barnet at Layer Rd), and is almost universally Colchester United related (though not quite all of it). I have decided to try and put this to some use, by choosing one at random prior to each match and writing a short article about the match, maybe the programme, and even any personal recollections I have of the game (notwithstanding enforced enfeeblement due to excessive libation). I will try and do this ahead of each game this season, but my apologies in advance if I don’t quite achieve that.
