Fraser Forster Blamed For Traffic Jam On Millbrook Road
Thursday, 9th Nov 2017 12:11
Fraser Forster has been blamed for traffic chaos on Millbrook Road last night and it has lead to an almighty backlash.
Fraser Forster drove back from Staplewood yesterday after training at around 2pm and took a route into town that saw him use the Millbook Road and Mountbatten Way, onlookers have commented that his driving appeared to be impeccable and that he looked in command and assured whilst sat at Regents park traffic lights.
However by 5.30pm the West Bound carriageway was in chaos and the queue to get on the M271 stretched back to Decathlon, motorists were in no doubt as to whom was to blame.
One Skoda driver said.
"I don't know why he is still being allowed to drive down Millbrook Road he is clearly at fault for this traffic jam even though he was sat at home watching The Chase at the time and hadn't even used the West Bound carriageway"
Another was more blunt as to where the problem lay.
"I read on social media that it was down to Forster crossing the road near Regents Park, he didn't move his feet quickly enough when the little green man came on and was too slow to react, meaning that many cars had to wait whilst it flashed yellow"
Yet another said.
"It wasnt just Forster, Redmond and Tadic were to blame even though they weren't there either, everyone knows it's all their fault except Les Reed, I have heard that he has insisted to Mauricio Pellegrino that they have to drive home via Millbrook Road whatever their driving is like and can't be given a lift or take the bus"
The general consensus on the Echo Message Board seemed to be unanimous, the traffic jam just wasn't entertaining enough. a typical quote was
" Im thinking of giving up work just so I don't have to drive into town, driving and traffic jams just aren't entertaining enough, I was just sat there bored and i can't justify the expense of running a car anymore unless im being entertained"
"I have been driving along Millbrook Road for 40 years and it has never been as bad as this before, the Highways Agency just have no ambition, if they had this would now be an 8 lane freeway like they have in Los Angeles with views of palm trees and stuff, not container ships"
By 5.45pm many motorists were blaming Forster and demanding that the DVLA take action, even after it was revealed that actually the problem was caused by his team mate Maya Yoshida's Nissan breaking down on the Millbrook Flyover.
At 6pm traffic appeared to be back to normal and a spokesman for the RAC said that it had been no worse than a normal Wednesday evening and that although it was chaotic early on, a little bit of paience would soon see things back to normal.
In other Saints related news on the Echo Readers Message Board
Nathan Redmond's house was picketed by members of the Unite Trade Union who blame him for a change in Bin Man's hours with Southampton City Council and whose demands include a 4% pay rise, double time at weekends and Redmond never to play again for Saints.
Dusan Tadic has been accused of Brexit and Fraser Forster of inciting Catalan Independence and James Ward Prowse of being friends with Fraser Forster, Nathan Redmond and Dusan Tadic.
As for Les Reed it is all his fault that we have had four straight top 8 finishes in the premier League and a Wembley Cup Final, this would never have been allowed to happen in the old days.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
