Not supprised, very nice of Dons to agree to a postponement. The Orient game will become a very emotional one, let's hope that we fill the ground with mourners and fill the book of condolence for his family.

Football takes back seat at a time like this- let people pay their respects for the next 10 days before our home game against Orient when we can unite a sold out stadium and sing his name for 90 minutes on our way to taking the title in his memory.
RIP Markus

Got home last night after work and saw the news on SKY SPORTS BREAKING NEWS along the bottom of the screen and thought i kept mis - reading it until i put wave105 on the radio and had texts coming through. I went down to sms last night with my girlfriend and her daughter to lay down our flowers and continue the shrine. Still in shock and agree with earlier post about sms opening on saturday to lay flowers, scarves, shirts etc on the pitch. Would be a fitting tribute to the mann who saved our famous and precious club. R.I.P. Markus and THANK YOU for saving the saints. Condolences to his family and all the best , Cmon everyone we have to go up this season more now to do it for Markus.

All Saints fans are indebted to you Markus.

I was at the Johnstone's paint final and I will always remember your face on the big screen, sporting one of the biggest grins I have ever seen!! Last season you restored this clubs passion, pride and spirit and for that Sir you will always be a legend.

In spirit, I agree fully with Dan. Let us forget petty rivalries and remember the magnificent contribution of Marcus to our Club and our City. It takes a moment to to develop an affection that can last forever. This seems to have been true for Marcus and Southampton F. C.. For those of us who have allied ourselves with the Saints for over 50 years, the contribution that he has made, and continues to make to our Club is beyond measure. He will always be part of the history of the Saints. It was his club; it is his club; it will always be his club. He lives on on the pitch at St. Mary's.

Keep smiling, Marcus.
