    Is this the 'Season Ticket Holders Only' section?
    It's a minefield. Don't even go there.
    I applaud Puppy's brave views on this matter. Now we are a Prem Club with wealth rolling in we need a forum which can accomodate the different classes of supporters.

    This forum is akin to a low cost airline with superior and lesser people all in a scramble on the same ticket. We need a British Airways style forum which offers exclusive access up front to Gold Card (ie season ticket) holders and back-of-the-plane access for the hoi polloi and the great unwashed.

    Of course the plebeian will be annoyed at first, but they will soon adjust - and indeed eventually get a lot of emotional security and comfort from the natural "officer/other ranks" order of things being restored.

    It would be nice too if the club provided separate turnstiles for us season ticket holders to enter the stadium - and priority on exit (eg an announcement at the end saying "Season ticket holders may leave now - all other supporters please wait until you are called.")

    It's not a popular view with the masses, but if we had kept the lower order loadsamoney Harry Enfield types out of the city trading floors and still had the banks run by gentlemen, we wouldn't have the mess we have today.
    Christ.. all hail to the great british elite then.
    Seems we are headed towards one great big civil war before long. Am I glad I am not in the uk any more."

Saints' £2m screen test



First published in Sport Daily Echo: Photograph of the Author by , Chief Sports Writer

Saints are already counting the Premier League cash after being handed four live TV dates inside the first three months of the season.

The club will bank just shy of £2m from the facility fees for those games alone, with plenty more money rolling into their coffers.

Nigel Adkins’ men start their season at champions Manchester City and, unsurprisingly, that game has been selected for live viewing in Sky Sports’ prime 4pm slot on Sunday, August 19.

Also live on Sky within the first few weeks of the season is the St Mary’s clash with Manchester United, which now takes place on Sunday, September 2, also with a 4pm kick-off time.
