  • "Back from Palace and SAINTS Fans know now they are so close to the Premiership they can taste it !!!!

    Fans were absolutely magnificent and on cue owned the PUBS - THE STREETS AND THE TERRACES.

    Good fun was had by all - the George (like the Cup Game) was the STAR PUB with a packed ALL SAINTS PUB spilling out onto the pavement and the 50-100 fans outside singing - welcoming the Coaches and good honest drinking.

    The Players were absolutely brilliant chasing down every ball and ADAM LALLANA put a shift in defensively as well as his normal game in midfield looking to score goals.


    Danny Fox was brilliant and his awareness of the Crowd shows he is right on top of his game and really enjoying it. His attitude is absolutely spot on.

    Praise continues .... Jose Fonte and Jos Hooiveld ... awesome and now Saints seem to be owning everything in the Air - WELL DONE.

    I have levelled criticism previously at 2 Players :

    Danny Butterfield was a natural to play today for selection and he put in a very good shift. He still needs to be faster with his decision making when mounting an attack - (not rush it) - otherwise it all breaks down and the opposition get their men back. He also needs to every time not back off when presented with a Defender otherwise they get a cross in or a shot.


    Number 2 Player is Guly. He was played absolutely right by Nigel today and he was ready to make an impact and unlucky not to score a goal.

    He has previously had stick from the crowd - but if Nigel plays him - then that is the issue rather than with the Player.

    Next up is Reading and that has
    DRAW written all over it !!

    If Nigel can use the correct formation to nullify their threat on the wings and then if the Saints Players can WIN every ball in the air incoming and man mark players like Le Fondre - then there is every likelihood of a SAINTS WIN.

    Finally I wish to end this post by exposing 4 bullsh*t urban myths that the blue pondlife talk about and really believe (one brain cell)

    1. On the Pitch - At the Derby Game the blue few chanted this when Police were in position - how pathetic !!

    2. Blue pondlife hardmen were coming to Southampton outside the bubble - utter sh*t

    3. The OB are there to protect Saints - :O) LOL - 30,000 Red and White Army and the Blue Few ...
    it's laughable and utter bullsh*t

    4. Blue few were going to infiltrate our Key areas in the Terraces - more sh*t - how many blue shirts did you see in our section ...

    sad old pompey pondlife are league one bound for sure - they are full of sh*t and now everyone knows it (if not before) and then they are going to be liquidized and fingers crossed we will not see or play them for at least a decade or more.

Saints soar past the Eagles

First published in Sport

RICKIE Lambert scored twice as Saints took a major step towards promotion with a 2-0 win Crystal Palace.

Nigel Adkins' side moved three points clear of second-placed Reading, while they went seven ahead of West Ham, who were playing Birmingham in today's late kick-off at Upton Park.

Lambert headed Saints in front after 39 minutes, as he charged in at the back post to meet Danny Butterfield's cross from the right.

And he sealed the win in the 56th minute when he danced past the Palace defence and fired in a low left foot shot.
