Jos: I was the fall guy

Jos Hooiveld has revealed that he felt like the "fall guy" during Saints' nightmare start to the season.

The centre-half was part of a side that struggled defensively in the opening weeks of the campaign, with the team shipping 14 goals in their first four matches.

Hooiveld, who was dropped in mid-September in favour of summer signing Maya Yoshida, believes he was made the scapegoat for much of those struggles.

However, the Dutchman has re-established himself under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, climbing above Jose Fonte in the pecking order.

Saints' defensive strength has improved drastically as the season has progressed and, in their last five games, they have not conceded more than one goal.

As a result, a resurgent Hooiveld believes he has proved his doubters wrong.

''I like to prove people wrong,'' he said. ''If you look at my career, I've proven people wrong everywhere I have been.

''I did at Celtic and then in Copenhagen they didn't want me. At the end of the day, I am standing there with a smile on my face and that is football.

''If you're going to look at all my games at the beginning, it was not that poor. People were saying it was poor, it was bad and they had to blame someone. Oh, and that is me.

''We're now over that, it is nice to play and it not like I am amazing now and before I was terrible, you know?

''I think the best part of everything is that we're getting the points, but at the beginning of the season you could see that the whole team was struggling.

''We didn't have much experience in the Premier League so it was a bit annoying when it was 'Jos this', 'Jos that'.

''I was a bit unfortunate with own goals, penalties or whatever. It was a thin line. Sometimes you are the praised man and at the beginning of the season I was the fall guy. I took the blame for everything.

''It bothered me a little bit when people pointed the finger at my direction. It is always nice to get the revenge and I always knew as soon as everyone was established we were going to be a serious Premier League side.''

Hooiveld is also hoping that his teammate Artur Boruc will stay at the club beyond this season, with the keeper's contract due to run out in the summer. 

''I would definitely like him to stay,'' Hooiveld said. ''I played with him at Celtic for a little while - actually just one-and-a-half games because I got injured.

''They don't call him the 'holy goalie' for nothing. You don't get that nickname for nothing.

''He is a good presence and a bit of a character. Everybody knows that.

''If he doesn't like something, you will know about it. At the beginning our fans had to get used to it I remember, but that is something you have to appreciate in people as well.

''Not everybody has to be the friendly guy like me, if you know what I mean? Sometimes you have to have people who also have that other side.''

I have always liked Hoover, ever since he arrived, I recognised that he was always 100% committed to us, he is always the first to applaud the fans after a game, win or lose. He did come in for some harsh criticism, although, of course some of it maybe, was justified, he wasn't getting the run of the ball, not because he wasn't trying his best, maybe he was trying too hard and not doing his natural thing, opinions are divided. However, what the detractors were doing was making things worse, instead of asking for better and encouraging the players, people felt the thing to do was to vent their spleens and find a scapegoat, just as they did with Guly and Foxy, if you want things to be better, posting without engaging the brain isn't the way to go about it. I want Hoover to be around for a wee bit longer, if only for his positive attitude, I am the first to admit that to do well in the Premier, we are going to need a better CB player or two, with more pace and dominance, but they don't come cheap and are a very rare breed.

He was the fall guy for a reason, just look at the stupid freekick he conceded Saturday which led to West Ham's equaliser.

Nice guy but not Prem class. Where the hell is Fonte, or Forren for that matter?

There you go again, positive to a fault.
I thought the "foul" on Saturday simply wasn't one, certainly worse tackles went unpunished, just my view on it, but then again I am just a "happy clapper" therefore my opinion is invalid compared with you, the professional pundits.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Positive criticism is one thing but some of the abuse on here is not fair. I've always thought Fonte was the better player but wouldn't dream of suggesting Jos ever gives anything other than his best and if his best isn't good enough then the fault lies with the person who put him on the pitch.Think we should all remember that the players probably read this as do their families all over the country.

the problem is though os that people always want to `blame` someone if we lose or draw. they need to point the finger and say we would have won if he hadn't made that foul or, and this is my favourite, not prem class. the thing is with this `blame game` is that some players are deemed not capable of making mistakes. lalla hardly ever gets moaned about and SRL never takes criticism, reason being they are fans favourites. players make mistakes, every player, just some are more noticed than others. J-rod has taken some abuse from certain people on here, how many times have we read that he was a waste of 7mill and we should have loaned him out and kept billy! now J-rod has got a few goals and is playing well everyone loves him.
I have never `blamed ` any player that plays for saints, I support the team and if a player is having a rough time shouting at him during the game or boing him if he comes on as sub is not going to help is it.

Mauricio keeps picking Hooi and that's good enough because Mauricio is only fractionally less well qualified and informed than I am.

Meanwhile, players need to be aware that any fool can criticise and most of them do.

I've always found in my own life that honest criticism is to be welcomed as long as it doesn't come from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger.

As usual the truth is somewhere between the two polarized views.

Firstly, being abusive or booing specific players is indeed unacceptable. Victimising players is wrong and, apart from anything else, is hardly likely to make them improve.

But secondly, I think, on a discussion forum, people had every right to identify Hoover, Fox and the keepers as weak links early on.

It's nothing personal - it's a part of football. Nigel obviously noticed it and acted in the end, so why shouldn't fans point it out as well? Apart from anything else, they were right, Hoover and Fox were dropped and have come back stronger.

Guly is a slightly different matter. When he plays, he is employed for a specific job that many don't necessarily appreciate, so I feel making him a fall guy in the early months was a bit unfair.

So, IMO, people are well within their rights to have an opinion on players and 'play manager' - if they didn't football would be a very boring sport, with no discussion and no passion.

The defensive improvement is in the way the whole team is set up and plays. The pressing from higher up allows the defenders to set and gives them the freedom to play their natural game instinctively. My guess is that all the defenders are enjoying their game much more under Pochettino.

Look at the tackle he made at Reading to stop them getting through on goal. It's easy to look at one incident, the fact is that our defence has conceded less goals in the last 23 games than they did in the first ten. So you must agree that it has been becoming more solid by the week.

I also feel Jos's stature generally is important to us at the moment. He's a bit of a beast and quite a bit bigger than Forren unless my eyes are deceiving me, which is partly why he's keeping him out of the team.

Three good posts.

What's impressive about our central defenders is how much they (Jos,Yos AND Jose) have improved over the course of the season. It's tough on Forren (and Jose for that matter) but why should he or any new signing walk straight into a successful side. We don't have the four best CBs in the world, but we do have four who are more than capable in the prem.

As we progress, depending on what's coming through from the academy, I expect us to add even more quality in all departments. This is a work in progress and the ones getting on the pitch at the moment - who are all playing their part - might soon find their places under increased pressure. Thus, each one of them will have to keep developing. Forren's signing certainly seems to have helped our CBs up their game.

Anyway, as for a poor start, (before anyone else gets in with the obvious) I blame Guly.

Hooiveld has picked up his form since his woeful start at the beginning of the season, yes i was one of those that pointed my finger at him when things went wrong at the back, which in all honestly was his fault. so many errors and faults but im glad hes on fine form now and i suggest we stick him at the back with yoshida for the remainder of the season. come next season, hopefully he'll be warming the bench for some world class CB we've signed in the summer transfer window!!

But on a serious note, I really can't understand why Forren has not started yet? He is player of the year here and from what I saw last year the best defender we could have.
So please Saints... or the Echo... can we find out why?

I don't deny our defence is not becoming stronger, it's just little mistakes from our defenders that are costing us. Jos is trying to make out that he was merely used as a fall guy in the first few games when in fairness he really did have a shocker. You highlight the match saving tackle against Reading but he could have so easily giving away a penalty for a trip in the box which luckily the ref didn't give, others would have though.

Sorry OSPREYSAINT but there's no denying that it was a clear foul for their freekick Saturday. I'm not pointing the finger and blaming Jos, but it was a silly tackle in a silly place of the pitch to give away a foul. We need to be smarter on the field.

Jos is a nice guy and I know he gives 110% each game, it is purely my opinion that Fonte is the better defender that's all.

But secondly, I think, on a discussion forum, people had every right to identify Hoover, Fox and the keepers as weak links early on.

It's nothing personal - it's a part of football. Nigel obviously noticed it and acted in the end, so why shouldn't fans point it out as well? Apart from anything else, they were right, Hoover and Fox were dropped and have come back stronger.

Guly is a slightly different matter. When he plays, he is employed for a specific job that many don't necessarily appreciate, so I feel making him a fall guy in the early months was a bit unfair.

So, IMO, people are well within their rights to have an opinion on players and 'play manager' - if they didn't football would be a very boring sport, with no discussion and no passion.
Agree JD, no problem with airing views as long as it's constructive and not abusive and biased. I have opinions on players based on what I see and more than happy to be proved wrong. I have never doubted J-Rod's ability but have questioned the price tag, seems he is now delivering, thanks mostly to MP's faith in him and playing in the right role. Long may it continue.
For me, it's important to recognise that all players are dependant on each other, i.e defensive mistakes can be made because of a lack of support from midfield etc and it's the teams all round performance that counts rather than any individual efficiency or inefficiency.

Look at the tackle he made at Reading to stop them getting through on goal. It's easy to look at one incident, the fact is that our defence has conceded less goals in the last 23 games than they did in the first ten. So you must agree that it has been becoming more solid by the week. STID
I don't deny our defence is not becoming stronger, it's just little mistakes from our defenders that are costing us. Jos is trying to make out that he was merely used as a fall guy in the first few games when in fairness he really did have a shocker. You highlight the match saving tackle against Reading but he could have so easily giving away a penalty for a trip in the box which luckily the ref didn't give, others would have though.

Sorry OSPREYSAINT but there's no denying that it was a clear foul for their freekick Saturday. I'm not pointing the finger and blaming Jos, but it was a silly tackle in a silly place of the pitch to give away a foul. We need to be smarter on the field.

Jos is a nice guy and I know he gives 110% each game, it is purely my opinion that Fonte is the better defender that's all.
The 'match-saving tackle' at Reading was pure class. The ref deserves credit for being well positioned but any no decent ref who have given a penalty there.

The guy's done well to get himself back in the frame. Jose's injury came at a bad time for him (and Forren, perhaps) but a good time for Jos, and he's taken his chance.

Can't comment on Saturday, I've been away and haven't seen it but the defensive stats speak for themselves. The whole defence has upped its game. Fox has improved, Shaw is growing and Clyne is class. BUT .....and here's were singling out Jos is plain wrong, if Jos has made costly mistakes this season, how about Bale's header or Manure's first at SMS? Clyne's responsibility. How about Wigan's late equaliser? Shaw.

We can all find faults in the players we dislike. Truth is, while we all know who are our best full backs, in the centre, it's much closer between the three who have played regularly there this season and few of us can offer an educated opinion about Forren. Judging by the stats, I'd say the manager seems to be getting more selections right than wrong, so let's trust him to pick the ones who will do the best job.

I understand your point MrBright, Jos and all the defence had a disastrous start and struggled coming to terms with Premier League Football.

Own goals from deflections are hardly an error most of the time, just unfortunate. I would expect that half the goals conceded in the division are from defensive mistakes (except for Readings of course, more like 90%,lol).

My point is we have conceded 26 goals in the last 23 games, that's only 4 more than Man U over the same period! So the fact remains that the defensive selections have been top draw, anything else is supposition.

Jos's reaction at the final whistle against Chelsea just about summed up what a great bloke he is. Of course he has his limitations, but more than makes up for them with his strengths. His doubters are sounding quite riduculous considering the form he has shown since his recall.

At the start of the season the whole defence was shocking, imho, this was due to the the lack of protection from our midfield and the lack in confidence in the rotation of our keepers.
When Cork came back and we settled on a No;1 things improved immensely.
Jos and Yoshida have formed quite a decent centre back partnership.
Mistakes are always going to happen, but overall I am quite happy with these two.
(I also thought Fox did ok on Sat)

By the way, is it just me or do the press seem so obsessed with Shaw that Clyne is getting totally overlooked (bar supposed interest from Chelsea).

Personally, I think if anything Clyne has been even more outstanding in recent weeks and, alongside being a great attacking option, he is unusually solid defensively as well.

In terms of Shaw and Clyne being 'excused' errors that Fox and Jos aren't, I think again you just have to use common sense.

Shaw and Clyne are young and add a huge amount going forward - I think people are rightly giving them a little more slack on that basis. Jos and Fox are senior players, so that little extra is expected of them.

Simple fact is that Jos didn't have a great start and took time to adapt his game. It's to his credit that he has played a big part in out recent form.
He's done brilliantly since coming back.

early season as well nigel kept wanting to 4 3 3 .we did not have the set up for this we were to narrow flanks exposed it was to easy for teams to get behind us and get crosses in we were just all over the place .but 1 nigel got yoshida we started to improve then cork came back.and the midfield became more solid and we built in confidence
this how we looked in the table after 10 games pld 10 w 1 d1 l 8 for 14 agnst 28 4 points - 14 goal diff
form after that from game 11 to game 33
pld 23 w 8 d 10 l 5 for 28 agnst 24 34 points 4 plus goal differnce
so this table highlights how well we have done since game 10 had we started like this i think we would be around the 50 point mark.and we will had to the squad next pre season and keep the best ones .the facts are there we will do well

It's easy to look at one incident, the fact is that our defence has conceded less goals in the last 23 games than they did in the first ten. So you must agree that it has been becoming more solid by the week. STID[/p][/quote]I don't deny our defence is not becoming stronger, it's just little mistakes from our defenders that are costing us. Jos is trying to make out that he was merely used as a fall guy in the first few games when in fairness he really did have a shocker. You highlight the match saving tackle against Reading but he could have so easily giving away a penalty for a trip in the box which luckily the ref didn't give, others would have though. Sorry OSPREYSAINT but there's no denying that it was a clear foul for their freekick Saturday. I'm not pointing the finger and blaming Jos, but it was a silly tackle in a silly place of the pitch to give away a foul. We need to be smarter on the field. Jos is a nice guy and I know he gives 110% each game, it is purely my opinion that Fonte is the better defender that's all.[/p][/quote]I understand your point MrBright, Jos and all the defence had a disastrous start and struggled coming to terms with Premier League Football. Own goals from deflections are hardly an error most of the time, just unfortunate. I would expect that half the goals conceded in the division are from defensive mistakes (except for Readings of course, more like 90%,lol). My point is we have conceded 26 goals in the last 23 games, that's only 4 more than Man U over the same period! So the fact remains that the defensive selections have been top draw, anything else is supposition. STID[/p][/quote]early season as well nigel kept wanting to 4 3 3 .we did not have the set up for this we were to narrow flanks exposed it was to easy for teams to get behind us and get crosses in we were just all over the place .but 1 nigel got yoshida we started to improve then cork came back.and the midfield became more solid and we built in confidence this how we looked in the table after 10 games pld 10 w 1 d1 l 8 for 14 agnst 28 4 points - 14 goal diff form after that from game 11 to game 33 pld 23 w 8 d 10 l 5 for 28 agnst 24 34 points 4 plus goal differnce so this table highlights how well we have done since game 10 had we started like this i think we would be around the 50 point mark.and we will had to the squad next pre season and keep the best ones .the facts are there we will do well saintkenny

Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell,
But I've been seen with Farrah.
I'm never seen with anything less than a nine, so fine.

I've been on fire with Sally Field,
Gone fast with a girl named Bo,
But somehow they just don't end up as mine.

It's a death defyin' life I lead,
I take my chances.
I die for a livin' in the movies and TV.
But the hardest thing I ever do
Is watch my leadin' ladies
Kiss some other guy while I'm bandagin' my knee.

I might fall from a tall building,
I might roll a brand new car.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star.

I never spend much time in school
But I taught ladies plenty.
It's true I hire my body out for pay, Hey Hey.

I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs,
Blown up for Raquel Welch.
But when I end up in the hay it's only hay, Hey Hey.

I might jump an open drawbridge,
Or Tarzan from a vine.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.

The story just put a song in my head, sorry!

Love the way their recent good run gave them that little bit of hope of staying up (or at least ensuring the -10 goes on this season).

And it was looking so good until a goal at Oldham and two late ones for Brentford virtually relegated them already. Priceless.

i dont know if swansea stick to the passing game .we have had it a bit harder against teama belting it long .although swansea is not a big club .it has the same approach.and its good for football that they have won a cup .its how you should play .but there safe nothing to play for ,perhaps we just need to show a bit more desire and 3 points could be there for the taking if we can defend well .rather then press swansea we need to keep the ball .swansea will play round a pressing game .much like we do

Jos's regular and prolonged crowd applause at the end of the match will always endear him to me. Goals conceded stats in the recent past also testify to his (and the rest of the defence's) skill.

Fox had a good game on Saturday in terrible conditions. Then a cross came in over his shoulder (tough angle), in the rain, in the swirling wind and he mistimed his trap. Immediately the spaztards around me were shouting at him. It's pitiful.

Anyway, I blame Guly.

I totally agree with you. That should not have been a free kick, he should have let play carry on. The ref was determined to get them a goal and he found the right time to do that! What's the guessing I'm now called a plastic because I don't believe in singling one player out?

the family think that Jos is OK. The whole defence and kelvin were left to rue ... as Saints leaked lots of goals as they adapted to the prem.

for me ... Still need to strengthen the defence and the new manager cannot be happy with the soft goal from a set piece with players being too deep and sticking out a leg.

sign the keeper and keep improving the centre back position. Jos still has some way to go against top attacking players. Against Liverpool the family were pleased to see Fonte come on rather than the slipping and sliding from jos.

We would all like a goal from jos from a corner.

Agreed Buddy....I've met Jos (briefly)...and he is about as positive and enthusiastic as they come. I'd imagine he is a great bloke to have in the dressing room to keep the positivity up.

Combine that with the fact that his improvement has gone hand in hand with the general improvement of the team...and we could well be on a winner with him in the back line.

The family would like to see the fighting spirit among all the saints players.

If gaston could have more focus with a dead ball - even better give it to someone else to take set pieces which are valuable sources of goals.

There is plenty to fight for to get top ten - not just to win the family bet.

The new manager must surely impress in the market for saints to break into the top 8.

Man united and city - Everton and Liverpool - arsenal and chelsea.

We want to be another top established premiership team and above west brom and Swansea and fight next season in the top half of the table.

We have been guilty of making the odd mistake and seemingly getting punished every time, whereas the opposition made mistakes and we didn't take advantage, that has started to change a bit as we learn to cope with the Premier, no one expected miracles and we look to be flattered by our current position, but that is more to do with failings of the others than our performances, but beating three of the best has to be good.

Just noticed a replay on TV, at the free kick Adam Lallana came charging out of the wall and left a great big hole behind him, two problems here, the other was that he was less than ten yards away when the ball was kicked, if the first shot had missed, a fair chance of a retake, a bit of indiscipline there, you have to admire his endeavour, but it seems that a bit more practice is needed to defend these dead ball situations, however it was a rotten deflection that did for Artur.

yes it came off of davis .the free kick was unfortunate but if you come in from the side or behind the ref will give a free kick unless the linesman sees it but hoo was blocking the linemans view he could not see it from that angle .and the ref is bound top give a free kick ,i look at it the save from lambert before ht got them a point .had that gone in i think we would of gone on and won well

Agree with most posts on here re Jos. He was a bit unlucky early in the season and always seemed to be in the wrong place for a deflected goal. Likewise with Fox. He had no cover in the early games and was often blamed when team tactics were at fault. Cork gave that cover and on Sat. Davis did that job well too. Young Luke has made plenty mistakes but seems to avoid
that criticism. Look at any game and you will see mistakes. Jos had a very difficult task marking that donkey Carroll. He might be useless but he is a handful in the air, especially when the refs let him get away with murder. And weather conditions the whole game made mistakes far easier to make.

On another matter does anyone know what's happening with Billy Sharp. I was surprised he was put out on loan so early and not given a chance to step up as the others were. I was wondering why ,as Nottingham Forests top scorer, he's warming the bench. I read a couple of weeks ago that he'd said that no one in Southampton believed in him .He also stated that he'd met up with NC. I've heard rumours that WBA are interested in him. Anyone know anything ?

Whatever that means (Stoke going down or Nottingham Forest going up, it is ambiguous to say the least)

I see they are now laying claim to the title of biggest community owned club in the country. And saying they have a responsibility to the rest of the world!
Do they know they got less than 9200 through the doors and 1500 of those were from Brentford!

It may be a new era for them but the same old delusion continues!

Love the way their recent good run gave them that little bit of hope of staying up (or at least ensuring the -10 goes on this season).

And it was looking so good until a goal at Oldham and two late ones for Brentford virtually relegated them already. Priceless.
Pitch invasion !
They should try invading their own ground first.
The pitch invasion at Brentford was caused by someone called Simon Moore, it was entirely his fault. Plus the bad actions of the Brentford stewards, nothing to do with the blue phew at all. Fact.
i do love the way they are putting the blame onto the Brentford stewards for the fans running onto the pitch. its the same in life outside football, I have stolen from many people and houses and when caught I blamed the fact that there were not enough police and they were not doing their job properly, the judge agreed and said I was in the right and fined the police instead.
I also read one post on he fews that said that now that they own nottarf they should be allowed anywhere in the ground including on the pitch at all times. the lunatics have taken over the assylum
Stealing ain't saintly.
Ditto
just to make it clear, I have never stolen from anyone, it was an analogy. poopey fans saying they went on the pitch because there were not enough stewards, despite knowing it is against the law, is the same as saying its ok to steal if there are not enough cops around.

but we pick points up i suspect at least 3 come 41should be enough .i think wigan will drop though .unless they beat villa on the last day .without the away games a win at home could be enough i agree with big sam

you reckon wigan will go down? theyve only got 2 players really but they score late every time! kone and maloney! what did the longball merchant say?

You obviously didn't pay attention during maths lessons did you.
wigan will win their game in hand against swansea at home ive factored that in already so that when it happens i always expected it! its 4 points really!
And you know that for a fact eh ? ....... factor in our goal difference and I make that as good as 8 points ...... COYR !!!
its not because goal difference only counts on level points and i doubt we will finish on the same points as them
As who ? , there are many teams below us .

You do realise that wigan have lost more home games than both Reading and Qpr.So you think that they will definitely beat Swansea.

point is if they lose at man city and westham with bale back will they beat spurs at home and there playing for 3rd place defeat there would mean needing 10 points from 4 games and they have 5 games in 15 days aint going to happen .they can only reach stoke or villa

Who will get us relegated again to League 1 just as the skunts come up with a free flowing young team playing high pressing football which we try and bypass by going over the top but Fox doesn't deliver the right passes and Guly can't win **** all in the air so we lose 4-1 at their new shiny Community Stadium.

With foresight like that any chance of the Euromillion numbers for tomorrow night, I don't mind sharing.
I wouldn't bet on his numbers.

At this stage it's still the equivalent of a roulette wheel. Only if you know the precise force of the hand and the period of the force delivering the ball is it possible to predict with any certainty the number on which the ball will finish up. And no-one ever does.

The best achievable at this stage in predicting where we'll finish up is a pretty meaningless statistical approximation - like if you put your head in an oven while having your feet in a freezer, you should be very comfortable on average.

I may be living the Thornhill dream (thanks to my mother), but was brought up in Boston. The people there were having a laugh or just supporting those who took an age or just struggled over the line. I am gutted.

Not sure what the point is. Screw them all.

No, no,no SFC Saint has a point.

The trouble for him is that his point won't be enough to help Wigan, Villa, Stoke, Sunderland, Norwich, Newcastle OR West Ham overtake us.

He'll be gone as soon as we're mathematically safe; assuming that his limited maths is good enough to work it out.

It's looking bleak :(

I may be living the Thornhill dream (thanks to my mother), but was brought up in Boston. The people there were having a laugh or just supporting those who took an age or just struggled over the line. I am gutted.

Not sure what the point is. Screw them all.
Great city on so many levels.

My thoughts go out to all those affected :(

but we pick points up i suspect at least 3 come 41should be enough .i think wigan will drop though .unless they beat villa on the last day .without the away games a win at home could be enough i agree with big sam
you reckon wigan will go down? theyve only got 2 players really but they score late every time! kone and maloney! what did the longball merchant say?
God, it's like Lord Haw Haw is alive and well and has bought himself a blue wig and a bell.

Saints Fans are all FAMILY.

Clever of Thornhill Saint to make the link to one of the family : RedArmy1

Message from Red Army 1 of which Daily Echo Rules limit the content of the material.

From RedArmy 1 Quote :

Disappointed that we took the foot off the gas and let Wet Spam escape with a point.

Looking back at the Season - lots of good games - and if you were at Villa Chelsea and Reading Away - you know how the Saints Fans took the fight to these games. :o)

Ars*nil Away - Wet spam Away - and Chelsea Home (Cup) were a f*cking disgrace.

NEVER FORGET:

WE ARE RED ARMY. WE RULE THE SOUTH.

4 Points off Chelsea ;O)

There are 5 more games to go and WE FIGHT FOR TOP TEN.

NO FEAR
NO SURRENDER.

TOGETHER AS ONE - WE FIGHT FOR TOP TEN.

We are a Family Club who have the ambition to extend our Stadium - but never again will 2 Away Fans mouth off near our Stadium due to excess alcohol.

We have seen off Leeds Millwall and next season we have a score to settle with Wet Spam.

Plastic Fans who have a SO postcode and put on a West Ham Shirt in Itchen North and Kingsland North have been and will continue to be dealt with.

RED ARMY calls the shots in our Parish - FACT.

WE ARE NUMBER ONE.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

RF/RED ARMY 2013. WE WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED.

p.s Whose UP for West Ham and Chelsea Away Next Season ??

Unquote :


Souithampton are a Family Club and established as the Top Club in the South.

Now that will please the Family.

The fact is there is only one more score to settle this Season.

SPURS AWAY.

Hard-core fans are invited to attend.

No-one can tolerate BALE diving any more and the circus that surrounds him.

You may not be aware - but one of the Spurs Staff was getting way above himself at St Mary's - wanted to jump the barrier to engage with one of our passionate fans.

WE GO TO SPURS FOR A RESULT.

Defensive Errors and soft goals will not be tolerated.

You obviously didn't pay attention during maths lessons did you.
wigan will win their game in hand against swansea at home ive factored that in already so that when it happens i always expected it! its 4 points really!
As you 'couldn't see where we were going to get any points' back in February, i'll be best advised to ignore your 'factoring'

They're up in arms about it. I thought they might be able to last longer than a week before the infighting started, but apparently not.
do they now, as owners, have to ban themselves from nottarf for the pitch invasion? don't they have a responsibility to report themselves to the police? will they send out fines to themselves? will their heads implode at the thought of all that?
Heh - the manager can't even criticise them because they're now his boss.

This is the trouble with fan-ownership: it sort of relies on those fans not being absolute dickwands. There'll be tears before bedtime, you mark my words...
Will this mean try will only sign "inbred" players? Could Igor be their new center ?
