Saints Need To Make One Big Change Now !
Sunday, 24th Nov 2019 13:00
There are those that say that Southampton FC is rotten to the core, they may not be right but there is one big change that Saints do need to make and it is not what you might think.
Sometimes you need to have the ability to laugh at yourself in adversity although that is very hard t this moment in time after the recent debacle against Leicester City who walloped us 9-0 on our own patch.
We do not need to remind ourselves of this defeat too often, however we do not want to keep reminding ourselves on a regular basis, but we are doing just that.
On Friday as I headed into town I was passed by the Saints team coach presumably coming from Staplewood and heading to St Mary's to load up for the trip to Arsenal.
Suddenly the number plate hit me squarely in the eyes, not physically but it might as well have been.
Yes we actually have a personalised number plate to celebrate our own record defeat, even the KXG reminds me they are sponsored by King Power.
So everywhere our team goes they are reminding themselves of the 9-0.
I have not seen anybody else bring this up either on social media or elsewhere, I cannot believe I am the first to have noticed.
But it is funny, we have to have the ability to laugh at ourselves sometimes and this is typical Saints, sometimes they can't see what is happening under their own noses.
Perhaps this is a minor thing in the grand scheme of things, perhaps it doesn't matter one iota, but it is simple to rectify it, the number plate has no other relevance to us as a club so it would cost only a few hundred quid to get a change to something different and help erase the memory, however I'm worried that knowing our club they will change it to 10 KXG which could also be chilling omen given we still have to go to Liverpool and I don't think the figure would be predicting a 1-0 defeat.
Still it made me laugh and sometimes that is all you can do in a situation.

Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.

Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
