Be The 12th Man !

Saints have had a rollercoaster ride this season but somehow have turned it round to be on the verge of staying up, we can't let them give it away now.
Mark Hughes has spoken about how news of goals filtering through from other games, or at least one in particular can't fail to affect his team, this is something that has been a feature of last day scrambles for as long as I can remember, indeed just about the only thing that has changed is the fact that technology means that the accuracy of goals scored elsewhere is a lot better than it was 20 odd years ago when most people in the crowd did not have a mobile phone and had to rely on the odd individual with a radio to relay scores, not always with accuracy.
Although Saints are nearly over the line they now need the supporters to keep up the level of noise and support that has been a feature of the last three games.
The support during the home game against Bournemouth was magnificent and that was followed by two brilliant displays of support at both Everton and Swansea.
With Stoke fans on social media urging their team to lose heavily at Swansea and relegate their former manager Mark Hughes, we now need to step up to the plate and do our bit to make sure that does not happen.
Late on in both the Bournemouth and Swansea games the Saints fans kept the team going in nervy late stages and that is needed again but from the kick off, we need to be loud proud and keep the team going if things aren't going completely to plan.
It doesn't matter what your level of support is, whether it is singing for most of the game in the Northam or watching in a more sedate atmosphere in the Itchen Centre, just up your normal level slightly and the atmosphere will ramp up a few notches.
We can moan about where the season has gone wrong after the final whistle when we have hopefully stayed up, but till then 100% support !

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.
