FA Cup Fever Can Spark The Revival
Saturday, 17th Mar 2018 09:08
Mark Hughes can get his Saints managerial career underway with a win at Wigan and spark the Saints revival this season.
There is nothing like a good cup run to get the fans blood going, the cups have been marginalised over the past decade or so by the armchair TV fans supporting the big clubs, but for the match going football fans of clubs like Saints they offer the chance of a bit of glory and a European tour, so why would we not want to do well in them.
But for Saints the trip to Wigan is not just about the cup it is about a new manager coming in to try and revive the team and make sure that this season is not a disaster.
By winning at Wigan Mark Hughes can get a double whammy, a Wembley appearance in the semi final and a big boost in confidence to his new charges in the Saints squad.
Now is the time for all Saints fans to get behind the team and help it stay in terrier League and more, looking back will not help anything in the next couple of months, moaning about Les Reed won,t help our cause save it for the summer when the season is over, for now get behind the team starting from tomorrow, it,s a big day and by the end of it the season may well have swung in our favout

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
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.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
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.
