Saints are promoted

First published in Sport

Saints have been promoted to the Premier League.

Nigel Adkins and his team secured back-to-back promotions with a final day 4-0 hammering of Coventry at St Mary’s.

Even before the game there seemed little hope of anything other than the win Saints needed to ensure a return to the top flight which they left seven years ago and it certainly proved that way.

Any early nerves were settled by two goals in the space of three first half minutes as Billy Sharp and Jose Fonte put Saints 2-0 up.

Full of confidence and knowing that promotion was all but assured, Saints were rampant in the second half against an already relegated Sky Blues team.

Jos Hooiveld and Adam Lallana added further goals to confirm Saints’ finish in the second automatic promotion place behind champions Reading and ahead of West Ham, whose final day victory over Hull was of no consequence in the end.

What is there to say. After a few moments, we totally dominated the game. The score was a fair one and we are back in the Premier League. Now we can have fun discussing who stays and who comes in.
It's been a long season, but now we are where we belong.
Well done Saints and all of our fans. Proud to be a Southampton native!

I am rooting for Birmingham to go up with us. Certainly not Wet Spam. Nothing against the players. Don't like the manager's tactics. Maybe Big Sam will be Poopey manager next year once he gets sacked?

Two Promotions in two years and a trip to Wembley. And it the next stage of 5 year plan two years earlier than I expected. Congratulations Nigel.

I woke up at 6 a.m. to watch it live, it was worth it! Southampton in the Prem, loving it!
I was up at 5am (mountain time) and I don't have fox soccer plus so found the game online & hooked my laptop up to my tv! Agree it was well worth it - even worth the grief from the wife for waking the kids when the 1st goal went on - saints are back where they belong!

Here we go AGAIN!!!...No, One year earlier than the 5 year plan suggested. The 5th year was to be a consolidation in the Prem season. Now, we will attempt this in the 4th year. IS THAT BLOODY CLEAR NOW TO EVERYBODY???!!!

Well I too spent the week worrying, wondering how I would cope with play offs. But we did it as I think Nigel knew all along. Pity we didn't finish top - but hey let's look forward to the Prem where we belong. Well done everyone, really incredible and never thought we would last August. Amazing.
