Saints Fans Are Optimistic About 2nd Half Of The Season
Wednesday, 25th Dec 2019 09:39
According to the first votes cast in our latest poll, the majority of Saints supporters think that the team can pull out of relegation trouble in the second half of the season, see the results and cast your own vote here.
The first votes cast in our latest poll "Can Saints Avoid Relegation" suggest that the majority of Saints supporters feel that the club can pull clear in the New Year.
So far 18% feel that we can do it with ease and 48% are confident that we can do it but feel that it might be another tough call.
In contrast 29% feel that we will fall just short of safety come the final day and 5 % that we will plummet and fall well short.
So initial results are 66% are optimistic and 34% pessimistic about our chances come the second half of the season.
Personally I am in the optimistic school of thought, I think if we can get to this stage of the season and still not be in the bottom three after all the trials and tribulations we have had, then we can only do better in the second half of the season and if we do that then we will stay up.
So what are your thoughts, can we pull clear with our current squad ? do you think we need a signing or two in January ? or do you feel that we are doomed whatever we do !

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Swans 3/4/01 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, North Wilts calling. We’ve all no doubt heard (and used) variations of the expression “strange times we’re going through” during this crisis. They certainly are, and without a doubt the term crisis is apt, with deaths and positive tests seemingly rising almost exponentially at the moment. But we’ll get through this, and when we do, I firmly believe as a society we’ll be better for it. We’ll be a society better connected to our family, friends and neighbours, and more caring for those that need support. More so, we'll be a society in tune with the concept that we don’t have to burn fossil fuels to conduct business, we do have the technology available to avoid it, we’ll all be pretty adept at using it, and will all be far more comfortable with using it. It's an ill wind...
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Macclesfield 4/4/92 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, I sincerely hope you are all doing well? Today would have been a vital home match against Mansfield, struggling at the wrong end of the league this time after a couple of seasons flattering to deceive at the sharp end. Since the last blog, we now know that all football below the National League is cancelled, and the season expunged from records. A tough break for the likes of Jersey Bulls in the Combined Counties League Division 1, who had won all of their 27 matches and already promoted, but then these are very strange times indeed. I sincerely hope the EFL season can be completed somehow, but I’m increasingly pessimistic about whether it will be.
Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 6/3/99 by wessex_exile
Here we are again, so greetings to all you social distancers and self-isolationists, I sincerely hope you are all well. This would have been our third fixture since the suspension of all football in the UK, and with more and more measures being implemented by the government to minimise social gatherings, including extending the football league break until at least the end of April, one wonders whether we’ll ever finish this season? There have been numerous measures announced, including £50m from the EFL, to minimise the financial burden on us smaller clubs, but Robbie Cowling has gone on record stating that “…to really survive and go forward there is going to be help needed from the Premier League or elsewhere” – quite right Robbie.

Tonight would have been our home fixture against table-toppers Crewe, and a chance to avenge the draw at Gresty Rd which really should have been a victory. However, what’s really interesting about it for me is that myself and probably a considerable number of you out there would have been watching it on i-Follow – exactly what our chairman suggested should have been the first option the EFL considered before deciding to postpone league fixtures. Ho hum, wonder how we would have got on…

…and so we enter the start of the coronavirus-enforced football league postponement period for 2019/20. As things stand, we will emerge on 4th April away at Bradford City, with nine fixtures (some teams, including Swindon, Crewe and FGR have ten) still to complete over the following 21 days, though I’m sure the end of the season could be extended if needs be. Whether we do restart on 4th April only time will tell.
