Saints will be aiming to storm one of the greatest fortresses in European football this weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men, fresh from their 4-0 destruction of Newcastle, will head to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday looking to derail the title challenge of Manchester City.

It is a monumental task that they face, with the favourites for the Premier League crown owning the best home record in the division this season.

They also possess one of the finest in Europe, not just this term, but over the last three campaigns.

Since the start of 2011/12, the year that they claimed the title ahead of bitter rivals Manchester United in such dramatic fashion, the Blues have won 45 of their 52 home league matches, drawing four and losing just three.

In that time, they have scored 144 goals and conceded only 36.

It is a sensational record, bettering those produced by teams such as Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain over the same period.

In fact, the only two teams in Europe’s top five divisions who can surpass it are Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

This season, Chelsea are the sole team in the Premier League to have left the Etihad without suffering defeat.

José Mourinho’s side actually took all three points from that encounter, with Branislav Ivanovic’s first-half goal earning them a 1-0 win, in February.

The game marked the first time since November 2010 that City had failed to score in a home league match.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have averaged a quite astonishing 3.43 goals per match at the Etihad this season – by far and away the best in the division.

They have scored five or more goals on four occasions, with their biggest win being a 7-0 annihilation of Norwich in November.

Saints, however, have one of the best away defences in the Premier League, with only Chelsea and Everton having conceded fewer goals on their travels.

Pochettino’s side were also the only team to blunt the division’s other leading attack, beating Liverpool 1-0, at Anfield, in September.

Last season, they came close to earning a shock result at City, taking the lead twice before eventually losing 3-2 on the opening weekend of the campaign.

Earlier this term, the sides drew 1-1 at St Mary’s, with Dani Osvaldo’s stunning strike cancelling out Sergio Agüero’s early effort, in a match that was largely dominated by Saints.

A tough task indeed but we play without fear as we are under no pressure and they know we always give them a game. Looking forward to being there and hoping for another Liverpool.

If we turn up and play anything like we did last week we're in a position to give them a shock and a half. We've never shown any fear playing them before - with a bit of luck and a following wind we could be laughing tomorrow afternoon.

The midfield must help the defence no matter what and the striker must track back ! I see a draw at best . Anyway Strasbourgeois did you watch PSG vs Chelsea if you did you probably understand why Morgan can't break into the French team Matuidi was just incredible in Midfield ! Tonight if you have a chance watch Lyon vs Juventus and you'll see Pogba in action he's also a beast !

No Kompany, probably no Aguero. Press them high and snuff out Toure like we did St Marys. Hope for a decent unbiassed ref. 0-1 Luke picks it up and surges forward, plays a great crossfield ball to Adz who makes his defender look stupid with a Cruyff turn. He sends an inch perfect ball to the far post where SRL has a 90% chance of scoring but instead opts to pick out JRod who can't miss. Are you watching Woy?

We didn't turn up for the FA Cup tie v Sunderland.

As for Saturday well I hope I'm wrong but I think we will be slaughtered. City are too strong going forward and our defence is too frail. I am sure Poch will have the team prepared and they will do their best and I will be proud of them but winning at the Etihad? Come on.

Morgan can't break in because that tosser of a manager of yours can't be bothered to watch him play. Typical French arrogance. I bet you if Wenger bought Morgan this summer he'd be playing for France within a year.

A tough call on this one, it would need everything to go in our favour, we need everyone fit and up for it, we need to avoid those silly individual errors as they will be punished, we need to capitalise on possession and get our shots on target, a little bit of luck on the ball, and Chris Foy who is an unpredictable Official, we need him to get things right. I have no doubts about the away support, that's a given assett. Realistically a draw would welcome, any better would be a masive bonus but not impossible.

Last three games, Saints score first:

If you look at that impartially, you might think that we do at least have a chance. Not really "delusional", just quietly optimistic, IMO. Certainly not a 10/1 chance...

Anybody would get upset being called a skate when they are clearly not of that persuasion.

Go back have a read of what I said or get an adult to do it for you.
Paul, so you know, Jrod11 is a (rather feeble-minded) Portsmouth supporter on a wind-up. He's best ignored.

I've never felt more like stinging the Blues.

COYR!
The midfield must help the defence no matter what and the striker must track back ! I see a draw at best . Anyway Strasbourgeois did you watch PSG vs Chelsea if you did you probably understand why Morgan can't break into the French team Matuidi was just incredible in Midfield ! Tonight if you have a chance watch Lyon vs Juventus and you'll see Pogba in action he's also a beast !
Morgan can't break in because that tosser of a manager of yours can't be bothered to watch him play. Typical French arrogance. I bet you if Wenger bought Morgan this summer he'd be playing for France within a year.
arrogant French seed? most unlike them. your right though, if wenger had signed spider in the jan window he would now be looking forward to getting the call. he would at least have been watched!
rumours I read the other day said that france would be looking to wenger to lead them into the euros in 2016. a competition that another Frenchman has done his best to devalue, and now platini is considering running for fifa president! blatter is bad enough but platini is just a fool, he has stuck his head in the sand over goal line technology and instead loves his idea of extra linesmen behind the goal, you know the ones, you see them in euro competitions they are given a stick without a flag, are stood on the same side as the real linesman and don't give decisions even when something happens right in front of them, one the other day didn't give a corner when only he could have seen it, he was stood in the way of the linesman and the ref couldn't see through the players.
anyway, its known that wenger is a `fan` of spider, so if he takes the job it will be interesting to see if he picks him.
as for the chelski game last night, wasn't it more the fact that `the special one` got his tactics wrong and allowed PSG to dominate the game, Matuidi had a good game but it wasn't `incredible` by any means in fact most feel that Motta had a better game.

If you look at that impartially, you might think that we do at least have a chance. Not really "delusional", just quietly optimistic, IMO. Certainly not a 10/1 chance...
Won against Norwich and Newcastle and lost to Spurs. None of these compare to Man City away.

The comments on here are not quiet optimism, they are of fanatic supporters who don't live in the real world.

It is as bad as the beginning of the season when we were close to the top of the league. Saints fans saying we were going to qualify for the Champions League.

You have proved my point. Most saints fans are so delusional. Get a grip such unrealistically high expectations don't do anyone any good.

We don't have a decent chance. We have a miniscule chance of getting 3 points. Why can't people be real?

Paul, I've read your one previous post ref the Saints.

"Fonte is off his head if he thinks he is international standard. He isn't good enough for the Premier League! Good Championship defender at best I'm afraid."

You're clearly a professionally angry man. Cheer up, it might never happen.

your so right we shouldn't have `such unrealistically high expectations` and they don't do anyone any good.
I bet when luke first joined saints he had unrealistically high expectations of playing in the prem aged just 18 and be rated as one of the best left backs in the world.
were we all delusional when we thought that we could beat Liverpool away this season (the only team to do it so far)?
mo farah, jess ennis and greg rutherford were any of their expectations unrealistically high when they dreamed of winning gold at the London Olympics?
no as I say your right, having unrealistically high expectations is no good for anyone!
dreaming of `big` wins is not delusional is called supporting your team, I expect saints to win every game they play, I live in the real world and know that they wont but it doesn't stop me hoping. not many fans were saying that we were `going` to qualify for the champions league but some were dreaming of it, is that wrong? should we go into every game thinking that we will be lucky to lose by 2 goals? no of course not! if you don't dream big, big things will never happen. I fully expect that saints will qualify for the champions league in a year or 2 is that `unrealistically high` no its not, spuds qualified for it a couple of years ago and are we that much worse than that team?

On paper there can only be one winner in this and the bookies have set the odds accordingly.
Pressure is starting to build on the top 4 and it can do funny things, whereas we have nothing left to prove so we are in with a fighter’s chance.
Personally, I’d like to to see the scousers win the title, I think it would be good for the game we all love to have a bit of variety. If the skunts get some cash out of that then good luck to them, fools and their money are soon parted.

Idiot.

I'm sure Luke didn't 'expect' to be playing in the premer league or get called up for England at 18. He wanted it for sure, like most of us would have wanted that. The difference being he made it happen through making the most of what he has.

They same goes for Mo Farah et al.

Expectation is not the same as wanting.

Saints fans all 'want' to see Saints win things. They shouldn't 'expect' it. Every other team in the land wants the same. 'Dreams' and 'wanting' it to happen are not the same as expecting. In all honesty if you just expect something to happen why bother putting the work in to achieve it?

Maybe in a couple of seasons with the right investment and lots of luck we might be in a position to challenge for a European spot but to expect that to happen is naïve.

Thanks. Using Google is correct to Google it would be wrong, although it is commonly used it doesn't make it right.

In all honesty if you just expect something to happen why bother putting the work in to achieve it?

really?
so shrek fully expects that he will play in the next world cup, lalla has high expectations that he will play in the world cup, luke has high expectations that he will be picked in the squad for the next world cup. so should they all now stop putting the work in to achieve their expectations?
luke would have `wanted` and `expected` to make the first team for saints when he was a kid, that's how footballers think. Liverpool players expect that they will qualify for the champs league next season, so why should they bother putting the work in to achieve it?
saints fans expect that the team will beat man city on sat, should they not bother going and supporting the team?
the players themselves will `expect` to win the game, but they know that to achieve this expectation they have to put the work in!
Look up expect in the dictionary.

The midfield must help the defence no matter what and the striker must track back ! I see a draw at best .

Tonight if you have a chance watch Lyon vs Juventus and you'll see Pogba in action he's also a beast !
Morgan can't break in because that tosser of a manager of yours can't be bothered to watch him play. Typical French arrogance. I bet you if Wenger bought Morgan this summer he'd be playing for France within a year.
First of all have some respect you don't see me on here cursing the England coach and his tactics or team selection even though they are questionable ? If you saw the match yesterday Matuidi was very good ! Matuidi played for Troyes, Saint Etienne before PSG so he work hard to get where he is now I could say the same thing for Pogba or Morgan so please you saying if Morgan was at Arsenal he would play for France within a year that's nonsense look at Flamini is doing well and he's not even in the French team it's how you perform !.

I'm going and I have hope of a result but not expectation. That hope comes from winning at Liverpool - was there too - and very nearly winning at City last season in our first game back in the top flight. They also admitted that they were lucky to get anything at SMS earlier this season and we of course battered them 3-1 last season. We are certainly underdogs but as Velleity says 10/1 are generous odds.

The man's right - as supporters we all WANT our club to win everything. Football is a game made for dreamers. I WANT Saints to beat City 0-7 on Sat. I WANT Saints to lift this or that trophy next year, but I don't EXPECT any of these things to happen at least in the near future.
Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs have all taught us this squad is not ready yet to make a serious challenge for silverware. City are chasing another Title and the strength of their squad makes me think they will win on Sat - sorry chaps but that's how I see it. Sure we have a chance of pinching a result, there's always a chance, but let's be real here, a defence that gifts two late goals to Norwich City is going to have to play the game of its life to keep Manchester City out......

Just to respond to your previous question, Killared, alas, no I couldn't watch the PSG vs Cheatsea match because I don't subscribe to Canal+. I am, however, delighted with the result and, for the second leg, might even dig out the PSG shirt my PSG-supporting brother-in-law gave me.

I could have watched Real vs Dortmund on German TV (we do get it here, being so close to the border - handy for the WC) but my wife came home and demanded that we watch something we both liked. So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)

Last year there was fantastic, although we lost, just. Had an enormous grim on my face all day, first game back in the prem and we very nearly beat the champions. We have improved so much since then so why not?

Funds are too tight this year but got my Villa Park tickets today!!

Ça va bien, merci, Killared.

Is Morgan good enough to get in the French team ahead of certain others? Well, like many unanswered questions in life, 'if you don't try, you don't know'. Which reminds me of a common joke. (One for Seedhouse but for which I apologise to you, StElssas and all my French friends.)

Q) How many Frenchmen does it take to defend Paris?







A) Don't know, it's never been tried. :-)

Last three games, Saints score first:

2-3

1-1

If you look at that impartially, you might think that we do at least have a chance. Not really "delusional", just quietly optimistic, IMO. Certainly not a 10/1 chance...
Won against Norwich and Newcastle and lost to Spurs. None of these compare to Man City away.

The comments on here are not quiet optimism, they are of fanatic supporters who don't live in the real world.

It is as bad as the beginning of the season when we were close to the top of the league. Saints fans saying we were going to qualify for the Champions League.

You have proved my point. Most saints fans are so delusional. Get a grip such unrealistically high expectations don't do anyone any good.
your so right we shouldn't have `such unrealistically high expectations` and they don't do anyone any good.
I bet when luke first joined saints he had unrealistically high expectations of playing in the prem aged just 18 and be rated as one of the best left backs in the world.
were we all delusional when we thought that we could beat Liverpool away this season (the only team to do it so far)?
mo farah, jess ennis and greg rutherford were any of their expectations unrealistically high when they dreamed of winning gold at the London Olympics?
no as I say your right, having unrealistically high expectations is no good for anyone!
dreaming of `big` wins is not delusional is called supporting your team, I expect saints to win every game they play, I live in the real world and know that they wont but it doesn't stop me hoping. not many fans were saying that we were `going` to qualify for the champions league but some were dreaming of it, is that wrong? should we go into every game thinking that we will be lucky to lose by 2 goals? no of course not! if you don't dream big, big things will never happen. I fully expect that saints will qualify for the champions league in a year or 2 is that `unrealistically high` no its not, spuds qualified for it a couple of years ago and are we that much worse than that team?
Idiot.

I'm sure Luke didn't 'expect' to be playing in the premer league or get called up for England at 18. He wanted it for sure, like most of us would have wanted that. The difference being he made it happen through making the most of what he has.

They same goes for Mo Farah et al.

Expectation is not the same as wanting.

Saints fans all 'want' to see Saints win things. They shouldn't 'expect' it. Every other team in the land wants the same. 'Dreams' and 'wanting' it to happen are not the same as expecting. In all honesty if you just expect something to happen why bother putting the work in to achieve it?

Maybe in a couple of seasons with the right investment and lots of luck we might be in a position to challenge for a European spot but to expect that to happen is naïve.
But Snooky - it is you who is interpreting what people are saying as expectation. We are all dreaming and hoping for a win - as someone else says above - it's called supporting your team. Try it some time - it might just cheer you up a bit.

really?
so shrek fully expects that he will play in the next world cup, lalla has high expectations that he will play in the world cup, luke has high expectations that he will be picked in the squad for the next world cup. so should they all now stop putting the work in to achieve their expectations?
luke would have `wanted` and `expected` to make the first team for saints when he was a kid, that's how footballers think. Liverpool players expect that they will qualify for the champs league next season, so why should they bother putting the work in to achieve it?
saints fans expect that the team will beat man city on sat, should they not bother going and supporting the team?
the players themselves will `expect` to win the game, but they know that to achieve this expectation they have to put the work in!
Look up expect in the dictionary.

They want not expect
expect
v. expected, expecting, expects,
1.
a. To look forward to the probable occurrence or appearance of: expecting a telephone call; expects rain on Sunday.
" luke looked forward to the probable occurrence of playing first team football for southampton", "saints fans look forward to the probable occurrence of beating mancy on sat"
b. To consider likely or certain: expect to see them soon.
"luke considered it likely or was certain that he will play for Southampton" "saints fans consider it likely or are certain that the team will beat mancy on sat"
2. To consider reasonable or due: We expect an apology.
"luke considered it reasonable to expect to play first team football for Southampton in the prem" "saints fans expect an apology from you for the way you have reacted to their comments and for the rudeness you have shown towards them"
3. To consider obligatory; require: The school expects its pupils to be on time.
"Southampton expects its youth players to be able to play for the first team in the prem" "fans require the team to beat mancy on sat"
4. Informal To presume; suppose.
"luke presumed he would play in the prem when he signed on to our academy" "saints fans presume that the team will beat mancy on sat"

yes I looked it up in the dictionary and I `expect` that the examples in the dictionary, with the added examples I have provided, are good enough for you to understand that you might, just might, be wrong to moan and slate the fans for expecting to beat mancy.

I also looked up,
idiot
n.
1. A foolish or stupid person.
2. A person of profound mental retardation having a mental age below three years and generally being unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
so you either consider me to be `foolish or stupid` for showing that just because something might not happen you can still `expect` it to happen. or you were being very offensive.
you wanted me to look something up, I have and i proved you to be wrong. so now I have something for you to look up, try looking up the site rules, see if they allow people to be offensive to other posters. then have a look back through your posts and see how many times you have been offensive. your very first post called others `deluded` and suggested that they needed their `heads read`.

saints fans expect that the team will beat man city on sat, should they not bother going and supporting the team?
the players themselves will `expect` to win the game, but they know that to achieve this expectation they have to put the work in!
Look up expect in the dictionary.

They want not expect
expect
v. expected, expecting, expects,
1.
a. To look forward to the probable occurrence or appearance of: expecting a telephone call; expects rain on Sunday.
" luke looked forward to the probable occurrence of playing first team football for southampton", "saints fans look forward to the probable occurrence of beating mancy on sat"
b. To consider likely or certain: expect to see them soon.
"luke considered it likely or was certain that he will play for Southampton" "saints fans consider it likely or are certain that the team will beat mancy on sat"
2. To consider reasonable or due: We expect an apology.
"luke considered it reasonable to expect to play first team football for Southampton in the prem" "saints fans expect an apology from you for the way you have reacted to their comments and for the rudeness you have shown towards them"
3. To consider obligatory; require: The school expects its pupils to be on time.
"Southampton expects its youth players to be able to play for the first team in the prem" "fans require the team to beat mancy on sat"
4. Informal To presume; suppose.
"luke presumed he would play in the prem when he signed on to our academy" "saints fans presume that the team will beat mancy on sat"

yes I looked it up in the dictionary and I `expect` that the examples in the dictionary, with the added examples I have provided, are good enough for you to understand that you might, just might, be wrong to moan and slate the fans for expecting to beat mancy.

I also looked up,
idiot
n.
1. A foolish or stupid person.
2. A person of profound mental retardation having a mental age below three years and generally being unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
so you either consider me to be `foolish or stupid` for showing that just because something might not happen you can still `expect` it to happen. or you were being very offensive.
you wanted me to look something up, I have and i proved you to be wrong. so now I have something for you to look up, try looking up the site rules, see if they allow people to be offensive to other posters. then have a look back through your posts and see how many times you have been offensive. your very first post called others `deluded` and suggested that they needed their `heads read`.

Just to respond to your previous question, Killared, alas, no I couldn't watch the PSG vs Cheatsea match because I don't subscribe to Canal+. I am, however, delighted with the result and, for the second leg, might even dig out the PSG shirt my PSG-supporting brother-in-law gave me.

I could have watched Real vs Dortmund on German TV (we do get it here, being so close to the border - handy for the WC) but my wife came home and demanded that we watch something we both liked. So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)
First for Stras (ffs) . You really need to cook for her a bit more often if you want to watch the footie Stras.

If you look at that impartially, you might think that we do at least have a chance. Not really "delusional", just quietly optimistic, IMO. Certainly not a 10/1 chance...
Won against Norwich and Newcastle and lost to Spurs. None of these compare to Man City away.

The comments on here are not quiet optimism, they are of fanatic supporters who don't live in the real world.

It is as bad as the beginning of the season when we were close to the top of the league. Saints fans saying we were going to qualify for the Champions League.

You have proved my point. Most saints fans are so delusional. Get a grip such unrealistically high expectations don't do anyone any good.
your so right we shouldn't have `such unrealistically high expectations` and they don't do anyone any good.
I bet when luke first joined saints he had unrealistically high expectations of playing in the prem aged just 18 and be rated as one of the best left backs in the world.
were we all delusional when we thought that we could beat Liverpool away this season (the only team to do it so far)?
mo farah, jess ennis and greg rutherford were any of their expectations unrealistically high when they dreamed of winning gold at the London Olympics?
no as I say your right, having unrealistically high expectations is no good for anyone!
dreaming of `big` wins is not delusional is called supporting your team, I expect saints to win every game they play, I live in the real world and know that they wont but it doesn't stop me hoping. not many fans were saying that we were `going` to qualify for the champions league but some were dreaming of it, is that wrong? should we go into every game thinking that we will be lucky to lose by 2 goals? no of course not! if you don't dream big, big things will never happen. I fully expect that saints will qualify for the champions league in a year or 2 is that `unrealistically high` no its not, spuds qualified for it a couple of years ago and are we that much worse than that team?
Idiot.

I'm sure Luke didn't 'expect' to be playing in the premer league or get called up for England at 18. He wanted it for sure, like most of us would have wanted that. The difference being he made it happen through making the most of what he has.

They same goes for Mo Farah et al.

Expectation is not the same as wanting.

Saints fans all 'want' to see Saints win things. They shouldn't 'expect' it. Every other team in the land wants the same. 'Dreams' and 'wanting' it to happen are not the same as expecting. In all honesty if you just expect something to happen why bother putting the work in to achieve it?

Maybe in a couple of seasons with the right investment and lots of luck we might be in a position to challenge for a European spot but to expect that to happen is naïve.
But Snooky - it is you who is interpreting what people are saying as expectation. We are all dreaming and hoping for a win - as someone else says above - it's called supporting your team. Try it some time - it might just cheer you up a bit.
St Mark,

True fans never give up. Even if I as a Pompey fan I wouldn't give up because that isn't supporting your team.

Cheer up? I'm sat hear laughing at the stupidity of some of the Saints fans.

I do hope we(Southampton) beat Man City I'm just not stupid enough to expect it to happen because lets face it it probably won't.

Probably
Likely
Then you have likely and certain in the same sentence these two words contradict each other.
Reasonable

It is possible to beat Man City however it is not probable, likely or reasonable to expect that we will.

It is possible for me to win the lottery Friday. It is not probable or likely, it is most definitely not certain.

Your explanation above makes you look foolish and stupid or an idiot. Sorry maybe I should say not very bright

I wouldn't report you because I`m not like that, but plenty would.

now there is a small word in both sentences that is very important, you seem to have missed it so here it is "OR". did you get it this time? so now read the sentence again, "luke considered it likely "OR" was certain that he will play for saints` that means that when luke signed he could either have been certain that he would play "OR" he could have thought it likely. that then give two different scenario`s in the same sentence, it doesn't mean that he thought it likely and certain, that would be stupid. if that's all you could pick out from the whole dictionary definition that I gave you then not only does it prove that you are wrong, but it also shows that you can not read. now who is looking foolish and stupid, I wont use idiot as I wouldn't want to offend anyone.
it is possible for you to win the lottery on Friday but the odds are 1 in 76275360 so if you buy a ticket it could be probable (affording ground for belief,likely to occur, inclines the mind to belief but leaves some room for doubt) that you could win. you could say I am probably going to win the lottery, doesn't mean you will though. it is of course not certain that anyone will win. however you could say I am certain that I will win the lottery one day, giving example b you consider it reasonable that you could win.
there simples I don't think I can explain the different definitions any clearer to you, but I expect that you still wont get it and will reply with more abusive twaddle.

Won against Norwich and Newcastle and lost to Spurs. None of these compare to Man City away.

The comments on here are not quiet optimism, they are of fanatic supporters who don't live in the real world.

It is as bad as the beginning of the season when we were close to the top of the league. Saints fans saying we were going to qualify for the Champions League.

You have proved my point. Most saints fans are so delusional. Get a grip such unrealistically high expectations don't do anyone any good.
What the hell is IMO. Speak English!
IMO ....IN MY OPINION. By the way it's interesting that you think we have no chance anainst MankyC. We did manage to beat the current league leaders away from home.
If you mean In My Opinion you should say that instead of awful text speak that can be misinterpreted, we're not on twatter we have plenty of characters to use.

I'm not saying it is impossible. Freak results happen all the time but to go all the way to Manchester expecting to get a result is really misguided, foolish and makes for a very long and miserable journey home.

I suggest you read the words you have used to try and prove me wrong and think again about what you have said because all you have done is prove me right.

Probably
Likely
Then you have likely and certain in the same sentence these two words contradict each other.
Reasonable

It is possible to beat Man City however it is not probable, likely or reasonable to expect that we will.

It is possible for me to win the lottery Friday. It is not probable or likely, it is most definitely not certain.

Your explanation above makes you look foolish and stupid or an idiot. Sorry maybe I should say not very bright

If you think I am not talking honestly and seriously think I am being offensive then I suggest you report me to The Southern Daily Echo.
Would only report you if you broke the rules i.e. Do not post anything that is false, abusive or malicious, if you do we would report you soon enough. If you post a negative post, as in We cannot possibly beat Manchester City, without making it clear it was in you opinion, expect to get flamed. A high percentage of posters on here are really decent guys whose have passionate views abot the Saints, they do not appreciate negative opinions as it tends to undermine the morale. They mostly tolerate WUMs and Trolls up to a point, but use the option of thumbs down and ignor when they over step the mark. Start slinging abuse and you will get an appropriate response.

If you are a newbie, let us consider your first effort, i.e. "We have the "most deluded" fans in the world. Anybody who seriously thinks saints will win needs their head read. We will be very lucky to come away with a 2-0 defeat".

There we have it, the first thing you did was call us Happy Clappers, "deluded", big mistake, you got the response you deserved.

Don't worry about the use of English on here, we have an in built Spelling and Grammar Police, who will step in to help with any problems on that score.

Welcome to the site, post what you like, but don't get upset if someone disagrees with you, remember if they agree with you, there is always the chance you could both be wrong.

Just to respond to your previous question, Killared, alas, no I couldn't watch the PSG vs Cheatsea match because I don't subscribe to Canal+. I am, however, delighted with the result and, for the second leg, might even dig out the PSG shirt my PSG-supporting brother-in-law gave me.

I could have watched Real vs Dortmund on German TV (we do get it here, being so close to the border - handy for the WC) but my wife came home and demanded that we watch something we both liked. So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)
First for Stras (ffs) . You really need to cook for her a bit more often if you want to watch the footie Stras.
Ha! I thought it stood for Financially F***ed Skates!

As for cooking, she'll be on her own after breakfast - I'm off to the airport in the morning.

I haven't posted anything malicious abusive or false. If you can't accept what you perceive to be negative comments then football is not the game for you.

I think you all are the ones getting your knickers in a twist because someone doesn't agree with your biased opinions.

You're the ones getting aggressive.

I am a Saints fan born and bred don't chastise me because I'm honest about our chances.

By all means if you all want to carry on in your blinkered view and not listen to reason that is up to you.

I never said that I was impossible to beat Man City, the beauty of football is anyone can beat any one on the day look what happened to Chelsea last weekend.

It is however naïve to travel to Man City thinking we will win, if you can't accept this view then that is your problem not mine so stop slinging abuse at me.

really?
so shrek fully expects that he will play in the next world cup, lalla has high expectations that he will play in the world cup, luke has high expectations that he will be picked in the squad for the next world cup. so should they all now stop putting the work in to achieve their expectations?
luke would have `wanted` and `expected` to make the first team for saints when he was a kid, that's how footballers think. Liverpool players expect that they will qualify for the champs league next season, so why should they bother putting the work in to achieve it?

2. To consider reasonable or due: We expect an apology.

4. Informal To presume; suppose.

yes I looked it up in the dictionary and I `expect` that the examples in the dictionary, with the added examples I have provided, are good enough for you to understand that you might, just might, be wrong to moan and slate the fans for expecting to beat mancy.

I also looked up,

1. A foolish or stupid person.
2. A person of profound mental retardation having a mental age below three years and generally being unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
so you either consider me to be `foolish or stupid` for showing that just because something might not happen you can still `expect` it to happen. or you were being very offensive.
you wanted me to look something up, I have and i proved you to be wrong. so now I have something for you to look up, try looking up the site rules, see if they allow people to be offensive to other posters. then have a look back through your posts and see how many times you have been offensive. your very first post called others `deluded` and suggested that they needed their `heads read`.
I suggest you read the words you have used to try and prove me wrong and think again about what you have said because all you have done is prove me right.

Probably
Likely
Then you have likely and certain in the same sentence these two words contradict each other.
Reasonable

It is possible to beat Man City however it is not probable, likely or reasonable to expect that we will.

It is possible for me to win the lottery Friday. It is not probable or likely, it is most definitely not certain.

Your explanation above makes you look foolish and stupid or an idiot. Sorry maybe I should say not very bright

If you think I am not talking honestly and seriously think I am being offensive then I suggest you report me to The Southern Daily Echo.
Would only report you if you broke the rules i.e. Do not post anything that is false, abusive or malicious, if you do we would report you soon enough. If you post a negative post, as in We cannot possibly beat Manchester City, without making it clear it was in you opinion, expect to get flamed. A high percentage of posters on here are really decent guys whose have passionate views abot the Saints, they do not appreciate negative opinions as it tends to undermine the morale. They mostly tolerate WUMs and Trolls up to a point, but use the option of thumbs down and ignor when they over step the mark. Start slinging abuse and you will get an appropriate response.

If you are a newbie, let us consider your first effort, i.e. "We have the "most deluded" fans in the world. Anybody who seriously thinks saints will win needs their head read. We will be very lucky to come away with a 2-0 defeat".

There we have it, the first thing you did was call us Happy Clappers, "deluded", big mistake, you got the response you deserved.

Don't worry about the use of English on here, we have an in built Spelling and Grammar Police, who will step in to help with any problems on that score.

Welcome to the site, post what you like, but don't get upset if someone disagrees with you, remember if they agree with you, there is always the chance you could both be wrong.
I haven't posted anything malicious abusive or false. If you can't accept what you perceive to be negative comments then football is not the game for you.

I think you all are the ones getting your knickers in a twist because someone doesn't agree with your biased opinions.

You're the ones getting aggressive.

I am a Saints fan born and bred don't chastise me because I'm honest about our chances.

By all means if you all want to carry on in your blinkered view and not listen to reason that is up to you.

I never said that I was impossible to beat Man City, the beauty of football is anyone can beat any one on the day look what happened to Chelsea last weekend.

It is however naïve to travel to Man City thinking we will win, if you can't accept this view then that is your problem not mine so stop slinging abuse at me.
Excuse me if I am doubting your pedigree, your modus operandi is very familiar to that of certain previous posters, (who were not the genuine article), which makes some of us a bit suspicious, and I disagree intensely that our fans will travel to Man City without any hope of a result, the whole reason they are going, is that they can be there if the unlikely was to happen. You are right in saying that I don't like your negative approach, and I am telling you that to your face, I am not saying that you are wrong, just saying what I feel about it, that is the point of a discussion forum, no point posting if you cannot accept a different opinion, however I have had this same argument many, many times and you won't change my opinion by taking an opposite view. I do tend to think that someone who tells me I need my head read, is being offensive, as far as I know I am perfectly sane, except for the fact that I am a Saints supporter which some may think isn't a sensible thing to do.

An exclamation mark shows that you are emphasising something and doesn't suggest the writers mood.

Thanks. Using Google is correct to Google it would be wrong, although it is commonly used it doesn't make it right.

I vacuum not hoover.
I'm a grammar Nazi, though. Stick that apostrophe back in 'writers' or go and wash your mouth out with skate and water.

Just to respond to your previous question, Killared, alas, no I couldn't watch the PSG vs Cheatsea match because I don't subscribe to Canal+. I am, however, delighted with the result and, for the second leg, might even dig out the PSG shirt my PSG-supporting brother-in-law gave me.

I could have watched Real vs Dortmund on German TV (we do get it here, being so close to the border - handy for the WC) but my wife came home and demanded that we watch something we both liked. So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)
First for Stras (ffs) . You really need to cook for her a bit more often if you want to watch the footie Stras.
Ha! I thought it stood for Financially F***ed Skates!

As for cooking, she'll be on her own after breakfast - I'm off to the airport in the morning.
Never had you down as a Plane Spotter!

In all honesty if you just expect something to happen why bother putting the work in to achieve it?

really?
so shrek fully expects that he will play in the next world cup, lalla has high expectations that he will play in the world cup, luke has high expectations that he will be picked in the squad for the next world cup. so should they all now stop putting the work in to achieve their expectations?
luke would have `wanted` and `expected` to make the first team for saints when he was a kid, that's how footballers think. Liverpool players expect that they will qualify for the champs league next season, so why should they bother putting the work in to achieve it?
saints fans expect that the team will beat man city on sat, should they not bother going and supporting the team?
the players themselves will `expect` to win the game, but they know that to achieve this expectation they have to put the work in!
Look up expect in the dictionary.

They want not expect
expect
v. expected, expecting, expects,
1.
a. To look forward to the probable occurrence or appearance of: expecting a telephone call; expects rain on Sunday.
" luke looked forward to the probable occurrence of playing first team football for southampton", "saints fans look forward to the probable occurrence of beating mancy on sat"
b. To consider likely or certain: expect to see them soon.
"luke considered it likely or was certain that he will play for Southampton" "saints fans consider it likely or are certain that the team will beat mancy on sat"
2. To consider reasonable or due: We expect an apology.
"luke considered it reasonable to expect to play first team football for Southampton in the prem" "saints fans expect an apology from you for the way you have reacted to their comments and for the rudeness you have shown towards them"
3. To consider obligatory; require: The school expects its pupils to be on time.
"Southampton expects its youth players to be able to play for the first team in the prem" "fans require the team to beat mancy on sat"
4. Informal To presume; suppose.
"luke presumed he would play in the prem when he signed on to our academy" "saints fans presume that the team will beat mancy on sat"

yes I looked it up in the dictionary and I `expect` that the examples in the dictionary, with the added examples I have provided, are good enough for you to understand that you might, just might, be wrong to moan and slate the fans for expecting to beat mancy.

I also looked up,
idiot
n.
1. A foolish or stupid person.
2. A person of profound mental retardation having a mental age below three years and generally being unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
so you either consider me to be `foolish or stupid` for showing that just because something might not happen you can still `expect` it to happen. or you were being very offensive.
you wanted me to look something up, I have and i proved you to be wrong. so now I have something for you to look up, try looking up the site rules, see if they allow people to be offensive to other posters. then have a look back through your posts and see how many times you have been offensive. your very first post called others `deluded` and suggested that they needed their `heads read`.
I suggest you read the words you have used to try and prove me wrong and think again about what you have said because all you have done is prove me right.

Probably
Likely
Then you have likely and certain in the same sentence these two words contradict each other.
Reasonable

It is possible to beat Man City however it is not probable, likely or reasonable to expect that we will.

It is possible for me to win the lottery Friday. It is not probable or likely, it is most definitely not certain.

Your explanation above makes you look foolish and stupid or an idiot. Sorry maybe I should say not very bright

If you think I am not talking honestly and seriously think I am being offensive then I suggest you report me to The Southern Daily Echo.
Would only report you if you broke the rules i.e. Do not post anything that is false, abusive or malicious, if you do we would report you soon enough. If you post a negative post, as in We cannot possibly beat Manchester City, without making it clear it was in you opinion, expect to get flamed. A high percentage of posters on here are really decent guys whose have passionate views abot the Saints, they do not appreciate negative opinions as it tends to undermine the morale. They mostly tolerate WUMs and Trolls up to a point, but use the option of thumbs down and ignor when they over step the mark. Start slinging abuse and you will get an appropriate response.

If you are a newbie, let us consider your first effort, i.e. "We have the "most deluded" fans in the world. Anybody who seriously thinks saints will win needs their head read. We will be very lucky to come away with a 2-0 defeat".

There we have it, the first thing you did was call us Happy Clappers, "deluded", big mistake, you got the response you deserved.

Don't worry about the use of English on here, we have an in built Spelling and Grammar Police, who will step in to help with any problems on that score.

Welcome to the site, post what you like, but don't get upset if someone disagrees with you, remember if they agree with you, there is always the chance you could both be wrong.
I haven't posted anything malicious abusive or false. If you can't accept what you perceive to be negative comments then football is not the game for you.

I think you all are the ones getting your knickers in a twist because someone doesn't agree with your biased opinions.

You're the ones getting aggressive.

I am a Saints fan born and bred don't chastise me because I'm honest about our chances.

By all means if you all want to carry on in your blinkered view and not listen to reason that is up to you.

I never said that I was impossible to beat Man City, the beauty of football is anyone can beat any one on the day look what happened to Chelsea last weekend.

I don't agree that we can't beat City, they're not unbeatable and we have a talented team. On our day we can beat any English team.

I am a Saints fan born and bred don't chastise me because I'm honest about our chances. By all means if you all want to carry on in your blinkered view and not listen to reason that is up to you. I never said that I was impossible to beat Man City, the beauty of football is anyone can beat any one on the day look what happened to Chelsea last weekend. It is however naïve to travel to Man City thinking we will win, if you can't accept this view then that is your problem not mine so stop slinging abuse at me.[/p][/quote]I don't agree that we can't beat City, they're not unbeatable and we have a talented team. On our day we can beat any English team. You are right about the blinkered views on here, although it's not all the posters. You'll soon learn to take those posters with a pinch of salt, and see them for what they are, laughable. Don't be afraid to have your say if you are Saints fan and ignore the guffmeisters. redandy10

Thanks. Using Google is correct to Google it would be wrong, although it is commonly used it doesn't make it right.

Good one glad you noticed Mr Nazi grammar man.

I really don' know what your problem is? If you can't take a debate without resulting to insults then get off the site.

Insinuating someone a Skate is very abusive when they clearly aren't a Skate.

PaulSnook,
you have been offensive to me several times, calling me an idiot, foolish, stupid and not very bright, oh along with delusional and needing heads read for other fans. as I showed you idiot is considered by the dictionaries that most people use as an offensive word, you have done this because I have shown you, more than once and with several examples, that saints fans are quite right to be able to `expect` their team to beat mancy. of course until I see your dictionary that proves otherwise I stand by that.
you may not think that we have a chance, that's your choice and opinion and your free to have it, but other fans are entitled to have their opinion, and if in their opinion they expect saints to win that's fine too.so why do you think its your opinion that's real and others are being delusional? well the facts state that saints have every chance. mancy are missing several key players and are under intense pressure to win every game in their title push. whilst we are pretty much where we will finish and our players are trying their best to get the England, and other nationalities, world cup places they expect to get.
as I said I have proved to you that people are fully able to expect an outcome that cannot be guaranteed, doesn't make them wrong and you right.
I really don't get this `I am saying something others don't agree with so that makes me honest and a realist` argument. people were saying the same about the home game last year, they weren't right then and the fans who expected us to beat them weren't `blinkered fools who need their heads read` and they were the ones living in the real world!
you can be as negative as you like I really don't care, but when you start being abusive to other fans because they aren't as negative about the game as you, that's what annoys people and that's why others became abusive back to you.
now go and find out that different dictionary of yours for us, so we can find out what the words in your world mean.

I haven't been abusive is calling fat person fat abusive, no. It is being honest.

Beating them last season was an exceptional result no doubt about it.

You have to admit that the odds are stacked against us. There is a reason they are under pressure to win every game and we aren't. That isn't negativity that is realistic.

It is delusional to think that you can upset the odds every time. I you can't accept then poor you.

1 game. 90 minutes. Anything can happen. Ask a Wigan fan. Man City are not unbeatable at the Etihad. That is a fact, nothing delusional about it.

Just to respond to your previous question, Killared, alas, no I couldn't watch the PSG vs Cheatsea match because I don't subscribe to Canal+. I am, however, delighted with the result and, for the second leg, might even dig out the PSG shirt my PSG-supporting brother-in-law gave me.

I could have watched Real vs Dortmund on German TV (we do get it here, being so close to the border - handy for the WC) but my wife came home and demanded that we watch something we both liked. So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)
First for Stras (ffs) . You really need to cook for her a bit more often if you want to watch the footie Stras.
Ha! I thought it stood for Financially F***ed Skates!

As for cooking, she'll be on her own after breakfast - I'm off to the airport in the morning.
Never had you down as a Plane Spotter!
Only one plane I want to spot tomorrow, Ospers, and that's the one to Gatwick.

Meanwhile, I've been watching Lyon vs Juve (she did the cooking this evening). Juve were, well, Italian. Plenty of falling over, Asamoah aside, they offered very little going forward and then, just after a couple of chances for Lyon, scored in the 85th minute to win 1-0.

Dani worked hard but was his usual petulant self. (Subbed off after an hour.)

Pogba? Well, Killared, he did a job, but Pirlo was more impressive. Pogba lost possession a few times and didn't spread any quality balls over the top of Lyon's defence. However, in the build up to the goal, he was there to give a gentle shove on a Lyon player, then win the loose ball and shoot before Bonucci poked it home. Not convinced he's as good as Morgan :-)

Dani worked hard but was his usual petulant self. (Subbed off after an hour.)

Pogba? Well, Killared, he did a job, but Pirlo was more impressive. Pogba lost possession a few times and didn't spread any quality balls over the top of Lyon's defence. However, in the build up to the goal, he was there to give a gentle shove on a Lyon player, then win the loose ball and shoot before Bonucci poked it home. Not convinced he's as good as Morgan :-)
Was watching that game too, Os isn't doing us any favours, he isn't exactly sparkling at Juventus is he? Enjoy your flight and I hope your journey is worth it throughout, some think you are wasting your time!
ospers I thought you had progressed from plane spotting to plane catching, or is that a bit early?

You have to admit that the odds are stacked against us. There is a reason they are under pressure to win every game and we aren't. That isn't negativity that is realistic.

It is delusional to think that you can upset the odds every time. I you can't accept then poor you.
firstly calling someone who is overweight `fat` is not only being abusive but rude as well.
secondly something is deemed to have caused offence when someone takes offence at what you have said, so if you called someone `fat` a `thin` person could report you for being offensive.
thirdly I would take great offence if you called me fat. I may be overweight but there are circumstances that you are unaware of.
there are plenty of names that are no longer used to describe certain types of people, the gay community and the black community along with the mentally and physically handicapped have all been called certain offensive names in the past, now I`m not comparing the continued fight that these groups have just to been seen as equal with the rights of an overweight person not to be called fat, but the principal is the same. you cant call people offensive names and then try to claim that you weren't being offensive just `honest`.
I suggest you go away and re-think your core values.
oh and share your dictionary please.

So we are all agreed then. Most of us hope that we win Saturday and know that we are fully capable of winning. Most of us who have been to the games this season know that we play some great football and are fully capable of beating anybody on our day. And one Saints fan believes we could possibly win ,given a fair wind and a lot of luck , but we really shouldn't expect to win. And in fact it is almost a crime to expect to win.

you have been offensive to me several times, calling me an idiot, foolish, stupid and not very bright, oh along with delusional and needing heads read for other fans. as I showed you idiot is considered by the dictionaries that most people use as an offensive word, you have done this because I have shown you, more than once and with several examples, that saints fans are quite right to be able to `expect` their team to beat mancy. of course until I see your dictionary that proves otherwise I stand by that.
you may not think that we have a chance, that's your choice and opinion and your free to have it, but other fans are entitled to have their opinion, and if in their opinion they expect saints to win that's fine too.so why do you think its your opinion that's real and others are being delusional? well the facts state that saints have every chance. mancy are missing several key players and are under intense pressure to win every game in their title push. whilst we are pretty much where we will finish and our players are trying their best to get the England, and other nationalities, world cup places they expect to get.
as I said I have proved to you that people are fully able to expect an outcome that cannot be guaranteed, doesn't make them wrong and you right.
I really don't get this `I am saying something others don't agree with so that makes me honest and a realist` argument. people were saying the same about the home game last year, they weren't right then and the fans who expected us to beat them weren't `blinkered fools who need their heads read` and they were the ones living in the real world!
you can be as negative as you like I really don't care, but when you start being abusive to other fans because they aren't as negative about the game as you, that's what annoys people and that's why others became abusive back to you.
now go and find out that different dictionary of yours for us, so we can find out what the words in your world mean.
Great post, Caballo Santos. Snooky has totally undermined his 'rational highground' position by resorting to abuse, hasn't he? Maybe we should just ignore him now? A while back I posted about the Saints moaners by recalling the Guardian referring to them as the Milton Road moaners (ah! The Dell!). I guess all clubs have their doom merchants - Snooky seems to be a chief amongst them.

So we ended up putting on some Kate Blanchett film called Hanna ....... that's when the wife disappeared to powder her ankles or something and I sat for about an hour waiting for her return daring not to put the footy on. AND ALL THAT AFTER I HAD COOKED DINNER ffs!*

Anyway, I might just get to watch Juve (and Dani) tonight if I'm lucky.

Seedhouse is right though, how can Didier Dechamps expect (maybe that should be 'want') our respect if, as the French national coach, he hasn't bothered to even watch Morgan first hand (or to my knowledge send his right-hand man)?

*(I just added 'ffs' to annoy Paul Snook)
First for Stras (ffs) . You really need to cook for her a bit more often if you want to watch the footie Stras.
Ha! I thought it stood for Financially F***ed Skates!

As for cooking, she'll be on her own after breakfast - I'm off to the airport in the morning.
Never had you down as a Plane Spotter!
Only one plane I want to spot tomorrow, Ospers, and that's the one to Gatwick.

Meanwhile, I've been watching Lyon vs Juve (she did the cooking this evening). Juve were, well, Italian. Plenty of falling over, Asamoah aside, they offered very little going forward and then, just after a couple of chances for Lyon, scored in the 85th minute to win 1-0.

Dani worked hard but was his usual petulant self. (Subbed off after an hour.)

Pogba? Well, Killared, he did a job, but Pirlo was more impressive. Pogba lost possession a few times and didn't spread any quality balls over the top of Lyon's defence. However, in the build up to the goal, he was there to give a gentle shove on a Lyon player, then win the loose ball and shoot before Bonucci poked it home. Not convinced he's as good as Morgan :-)
Was watching that game too, Os isn't doing us any favours, he isn't exactly sparkling at Juventus is he? Enjoy your flight and I hope your journey is worth it throughout, some think you are wasting your time!
ospers I thought you had progressed from plane spotting to plane catching, or is that a bit early?
I like aircraft, I hate flying! Most of all I hate aircraft that bounce off of my head!
I take it you are fully healed from your attempt to stop a moving plane with your nut then?
Yes, thanks, being Hampshire born has its benefits, "thin in the arm, thick in the head" worked for me! Ribs, lungs now 100%, bruises gone, just a slow return to normal of the left knee and luckily no trauma or psychological reactions, wouldn't want to go through it again. The Vintage aeroplane is being rebuilt and I may see it again in 2015, next time I will duck!
