Adkins: We've had a very good week

Daily Echo: Nigel Adkins Nigel Adkins

NIGEL Adkins hailed a great week for Saints, as the club’s hopes of a Premier League return further improved.

A 2-0 win over Doncaster at St Mary’s strengthened their grip at the top of the Championship, crucially moving them nine points clear of third-placed West Ham.

Saints have now won four straight and are unbeaten in 12 league matches.

With just seven games left in their season, it is increasingly hard to imagine that the club won’t go up automatically.

But, unsurprisingly, Adkins refused to get too excited after watching Billy Sharp strike twice against his former side.

“There are seven games to go,” he said. “We’ve just had a very good week.

“We’ve scored two good goals today and three good wins in the week.

“What we’ll do is recover ourselves and get ready for the next one.”

The Saints boss also revealed that Rickie Lambert was withdrawn with a pelvic injury early in the second half, but insisted the striker would be fit to face Blackpool away next Saturday.

Good day to be a saint! Good weather, and a couple of great goals from Billy Sharpe. Sharpe looked fitter and hungrymfrom the start, and when lambert went off, Billy had his chance and he took it! Shame he got booked for giving a kid a high five (I think) but I guess rles is rules.

De Ridder also did his chances no harm. Butterfield got forward, but his crossing was poor. We did not offer much down the left, as going forward does not appear to be one Fox's forte. When he did get to the byline onetime somebody commented he would need a map to get back in position. He however an amazing deadfall expert, and there was an air of expectation from the crowd and he clapped the crowd as he walked up take the corner that led to Sharpe's goal. A veritable torpedo!

Billy's interview with Radio Solent post-match was hilarious. Talk about a surly Yorkshireman! "pascal chimbonda was... Pascal chimbonda. I don't need to be his friend, we just need to win." but I was worried by how much he was getting drawn into emotions on the pitch, and his running dispute with chimbonda through the second half. He could get himself into trouble with some of the wind-up merchant stuff. Still, it's great to have another competitor in the team, and Doncaster did play rough today, there's no doubt about it.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON. UP THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE WE GO AS CHAMPIONS.

RED ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRMY.
THE FIGHT TO BE TOP.
Nice to see some Doncaster fans having a beer alongside Saints fans outside the Chapel Arms before the game with no trouble and a good time being had by all. It was a really good atmosphere!

Don't know what happended to the Donny fans for the match though! Not much away support, but I suppose if you are going to support a team like Doncaster away from home you must be pretty hardcore!

It has just about warmed up enough for less hardcore Saints fans to wear their colours, and with the bumper crowd the effect was fantastic!

The word genius comes to mind when you use the players that were great for you in League One like Lee Barnard to be part of a Team to beat a poor Doncaster Rovers. Billy Sharp was always going to come out on TOP today !!!! - FACT. No sign of the famous flag waving Gossie in the Station at Bitterne but a great pub all the same. IT WAS A FANTASTIC DAY IN THE SUN INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE STADIUM.

Great to be there and see them win (again). Not the best performance though in my opinion. Mainly because the normally exceptional Lallana had a poor game. Also thought Butterfield was so-so going forwards. His crosses were too easy for the keeper. My ratings:

Kelvin: had practically nothing to do. 7.

Butterfield: good defensively - coped with Diouf well, but poor going forwards. 6.

Fonte. Faultless, apart from the mix up which nearly let Diouf in. 7.

Jos. Faultless, apart from.... 7.

Fox. Solid and good crosses. 7.5.

De Ridder. Caused them problems running in behind. A few good crosses and some nice bits of skill. Not the killer ball though - never found Lambo. 6.5

Cork. Solid. Great block from Diouf (think it was Cork). 7.

Spiderman. Solid. Would like to see more creative defense-splitting passes from him though. Billy was frequently desperate for through balls or balls over the top, but it always went wide. 7.

Lallana. A really poor game - not his usual self. Lots of misplaced passes and poor control. 5.

Lambo. Good target, held the ball up pretty well. Nearly got in a few times and should have had a pen. Nearly worked some nice 1-2's with Sharp. Played close to each other and looked to be a good pair. 7.

Sharp. Star man. Two good goals (although somehow missed a sitter of a header). Great strength and composure for the second goal. Worked hard and looked sharper. 8.

Subs: Chappers. Looked twice the player of Lallana. Energetic, got stuck in, good 1-2s. Got forward well. 7.5.

Barnard. Always looks like he has a massive chip on his shoulder. Didn't seem to have much pace about him. Can't see him being in the squad if we make the prem. 6.

Hammond. Just the man to bring on at 2-0 up to add a bit of metal to the centre of the park. Solid and mobile. 7.

A good win, and now for the next part of our journey to the Premier league a tricky trip to Blackpool. The pitch up there is very sandy and uneven. It will be a tight game. Blackpool score alot of goals but have a defence the Southampton Bus should drive through.

I was thinking back to when we got promotion back in 1978 and wondered which of those players would have made it into the present squad. Williams, Holmes,Boyer, Peach and Baker. A few great players from the past. Its One more step to the Premier league we go from the old things to the new keep me travelling along with the Saints to the Promised land.

I hope NC asked him why, in their hour of need, the Skates had been helped just a little bit more than, say, off the top of my head, Luton, Bournemouth, Rotherham, Plymouth, Leeds and us, though.

Probably just as well. I think flooring an esteemed guest (even a tosspot one like BM) is still a life ban, isn't it?

I hope NC asked him why, in their hour of need, the Skates had been helped just a little bit more than, say, off the top of my head, Luton, Bournemouth, Rotherham, Plymouth, Leeds and us, though.
I had Seed the Small with me but I would have liked to ask him a couple of questions. Rules are rules but he blackmailed us with the Golden Share insisting we undertake not to legally challenge the points deduction decision on whether the companies were not the same. And for that he is a complete ****.

Is this about right?

Williams v Lallana
Holmes v Hammond
Boyer v Lambert

Baker v Cork
OK, Stevie Williams beats Lallana, Holmes thrashes Hammond, Lambert kills Boyer, Peach for penalties alone beats Fox, Baker beats Cork. I'm always going to say that because Baker used to manage my football team, Locks Heath Dynamoes when I was a kid - used to take me to games in his Vauxhall Astra, how times change! late 80s he was still playing then too.

How can you possibly miss mentioning Alan Ball from the '77-'78 promotion team, or Chris Nicholl, or Ted MacDougall? My first ever Saints' match was the 1-0 win over Hull that season, not the most exciting but enough to get me hooked. Channon had gone to Man City that season, Stevie Moran didn't play until the '79-'80 season, and Keegan arrived in the following one. I hope the current team at least emulates that of '77-'78 by gaining automatic promotion this year, but I also hope they go one better by winning the championship. We should have done so then, when strangely neither MacDougall nor Boyer, who had been knocking them in for fun in the earlier run-up, could score in the final match against Spurs, despite both having a hatful of chances. To this day I am convinced it was a set-up (at the behest of the Football League?), so as to get Spurs, one of the so-called 'aristocrat' clubs, the point they needed to get back into the top division, at the expense of lowly Brighton.

WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE AND AIM TO BE CROWNED CHAMPIONS.

We continue the journey to get back home to the Premiership... and FIGHT goes on until the job is done.....

More tough games follow:

The last few years - and in particular ... from League One until now have been about THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON getting back to where they belong.

Older Saints Fans reminisce about last time in the Premiership - but some footballing Clubs disrespected us ....

1) They took our Players with all the financial mismanagement.

2) They thought we were a soft touch at our Home Ground and stole points.

3) They never rated us - only as relegation material and thought we were cannon fodder.

and as we struggled in the Championship last time ... in came the jackals ... millwall to follow us after one game and try and target our fans.

WE ARE NOW A LEANER TOUGHER FIGHTING ORGANISATION THAT IS READY TO TAKE ON THE TOP CLUBS IN THE PREMIERSHIP.

Getting the finances right is an important factor and I am sure Seed will have a valued input at the right time to keep us right.

EI EI EI O - UP THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE WE GO !!

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

RED ARMY. FIGHT AND WIN-WIN-WIN. COYR.

p.s we go to blackpool as one unit to WIN.

p.p.s. this time we take all 3 points from sad league one bound pompey before they are liquidized !!!

RED ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRMY.

Is this about right?

Williams v Lallana
Holmes v Hammond
Boyer v Lambert
Peach v Fox
Baker v Cork
OK, Stevie Williams beats Lallana, Holmes thrashes Hammond, Lambert kills Boyer, Peach for penalties alone beats Fox, Baker beats Cork. I'm always going to say that because Baker used to manage my football team, Locks Heath Dynamoes when I was a kid - used to take me to games in his Vauxhall Astra, how times change! late 80s he was still playing then too.
Boyer and Lambert. I'd like that.
True, when I was very young Boyer was my favourite player, used to pretend I was him in the playground!
My first season he was a great provider to Ted McDougall. When Ted left Boyer started scoring for fun. I seem to remember he was league top scorer one year but hardly scored away from the Dell. Not sure, it's suddenly a long time ago!
McDougall before my time, but I can say a few years later Armstrong became my favourite, used to enjoy his commentary on the radio, wonder what happened to him? better than Merrington surely?
Osgood v Lambert
Chivers v Sharp
Channon v Chaplow
Ron Davis v Lallana
Paine v Fox

I'm getting old

Poor old Pompey Syphilis, had a bad weekend have we? What was the score again? :o)

Now that you have researched the "Boys own world of who gives a cr@p!" will these stats stop you from the abyss to which you are falling? Was it worth buying your FA cup with dirty money that you didn't really have? Will you only be remembered for bringing modern day football into dispute, and being the FIRST Premier League club to "ever" go into administration? Nice one that, kinda warms the heart!

You see where I coming from now Syphilis, you've really not a lot to shout about. If you had any sense of dignity you'd scurry off back under the rock from whence you crawled, but like any typical Skate you continue to flap and flounder! Screaming like the spoilt brats you are that your demise is everyone elses fault except your own, but it IS your fault insofar as you MUST have had suspicions of where the money was coming from? After all your lean-to of a ground is only fit for a few thousand cattle and the groundmans horse, couldn't even fill it when playing the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea etc. In fact the only time you've come close to filling it was when you played the Saints, but then again it was looked upon by the Blue Few as your cup final. Now that must have stung!

Anyway, not one person who really cares about football will give a **** about you pub side, Portsmuff are doomed to be remembered by what was wrong and rotten about football. It will be a lesson in history of how not to run a football club!

As for us, we will go marching on and enjoying the occasion. The PL awaits and our great club is in financial health with a nice shiny stadium, an academy to be envied and glorious support both home and away! These are indeed great times to be a Saints fan, if I were you I'd keep quiet who you once supported, otherwise a "care in the community order" might be envoked. For your own good, obviously!..... COYR's! FOP!

How can you possibly miss mentioning Alan Ball from the '77-'78 promotion team, or Chris Nicholl, or Ted MacDougall? My first ever Saints' match was the 1-0 win over Hull that season, not the most exciting but enough to get me hooked. Channon had gone to Man City that season, Stevie Moran didn't play until the '79-'80 season, and Keegan arrived in the following one. I hope the current team at least emulates that of '77-'78 by gaining automatic promotion this year, but I also hope they go one better by winning the championship. We should have done so then, when strangely neither MacDougall nor Boyer, who had been knocking them in for fun in the earlier run-up, could score in the final match against Spurs, despite both having a hatful of chances. To this day I am convinced it was a set-up (at the behest of the Football League?), so as to get Spurs, one of the so-called 'aristocrat' clubs, the point they needed to get back into the top division, at the expense of lowly Brighton.
I wasn't at that match (I was at the Orient promotion party though). However, I have always heard the same from those who went.

It's why, after usand Reading, I'd be happy to see our chums from the Far East get up via the play offs.

If I remember correctly, had we beaten Spurs, BHA would have done just enough.

That said, I also remembger watching us get the 0-0 at The Dell against The Dons we just needed to stay up in the early '90s. I reckon The Dons were under instruction not to score that day.

I liked Baker; scored after 30-odd seconds on his debut and always gave 100%. There were a lot of home-grown (or home nurtured, at least) players in those days.... Williams, Baker, Waldron, Steve Mills (RIP), Holmes, Agbula, Manny Andrechezki (scuse the spelling), Pucket, Moran, Funnel ......
I must have missed a few but have to dash. Great days..... happy days ..... So, all together ....

I hope the current team at least emulates that of '77-'78 by gaining automatic promotion this year, but I also hope they go one better by winning the championship. We should have done so then, when strangely neither MacDougall nor Boyer, who had been knocking them in for fun in the earlier run-up, could score in the final match against Spurs, despite both having a hatful of chances. To this day I am convinced it was a set-up (at the behest of the Football League?), so as to get Spurs, one of the so-called 'aristocrat' clubs, the point they needed to get back into the top division, at the expense of lowly Brighton.
I wasn't at that match (I was at the Orient promotion party though). However, I have always heard the same from those who went.

It's why, after usand Reading, I'd be happy to see our chums from the Far East get up via the play offs.

If I remember correctly, had we beaten Spurs, BHA would have done just enough.

That said, I also remembger watching us get the 0-0 at The Dell against The Dons we just needed to stay up in the early '90s. I reckon The Dons were under instruction not to score that day.
But if Alan Ball's Man City hadn't thought we were losing, we still may have gone down that day!

Still, it's all history now (like Poopee), the future's bright, it's red & white, whereas Poopee's future is just ****.

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist another dig at the fishy blue few - they are such an easy target).

With the points safely in the bag for another week, I'll now have time to consider how farms can produce more produce, why full dumps refuse more refuse, why I need to polish the Polish furniture, object to a certain object, shed a tear over the tear in my shirt, ponder on why the soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert and why some insurance is invalid for an invalid.

There's slim chance of finding answers - which is of course the same as a fat chance. Nonetheless, English is so strange that I think I must subject the subject to scrutiny and there's no time like the present to find the time to present the answers.

I was thinking back to when we got promotion back in 1978 and wondered which of those players would have made it into the present squad. Williams, Holmes,Boyer, Peach and Baker. A few great players from the past. Its One more step to the Premier league we go from the old things to the new keep me travelling along with the Saints to the Promised land.
Is this about right?

Williams v Lallana
Holmes v Hammond
Boyer v Lambert
Peach v Fox
Baker v Cork
OK, Stevie Williams beats Lallana, Holmes thrashes Hammond, Lambert kills Boyer, Peach for penalties alone beats Fox, Baker beats Cork. I'm always going to say that because Baker used to manage my football team, Locks Heath Dynamoes when I was a kid - used to take me to games in his Vauxhall Astra, how times change! late 80s he was still playing then too.
Boyer and Lambert. I'd like that.
True, when I was very young Boyer was my favourite player, used to pretend I was him in the playground!
I liked Baker; scored after 30-odd seconds on his debut and always gave 100%. There were a lot of home-grown (or home nurtured, at least) players in those days.... Williams, Baker, Waldron, Steve Mills (RIP), Holmes, Agbula, Manny Andrechezki (scuse the spelling), Pucket, Moran, Funnel ......
I must have missed a few but have to dash. Great days..... happy days ..... So, all together ....

'Happy days are here again, so long sad times, go long bad times, we are rid of you at last. Howdy gay times; cloudy gray times, you are now a thing of the past ....'

Not too sure about the gay times, but you get the drift.
Those names brought back memories! Remember them all. For info, Tony Funnell lives in Poole and is involved in Poole Borough YFC. Down to earth decent bloke.

Poor old Pompey Syphilis, had a bad weekend have we? What was the score again? :o)

Now that you have researched the "Boys own world of who gives a cr@p!" will these stats stop you from the abyss to which you are falling? Was it worth buying your FA cup with dirty money that you didn't really have? Will you only be remembered for bringing modern day football into dispute, and being the FIRST Premier League club to "ever" go into administration? Nice one that, kinda warms the heart!

You see where I coming from now Syphilis, you've really not a lot to shout about. If you had any sense of dignity you'd scurry off back under the rock from whence you crawled, but like any typical Skate you continue to flap and flounder! Screaming like the spoilt brats you are that your demise is everyone elses fault except your own, but it IS your fault insofar as you MUST have had suspicions of where the money was coming from? After all your lean-to of a ground is only fit for a few thousand cattle and the groundmans horse, couldn't even fill it when playing the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea etc. In fact the only time you've come close to filling it was when you played the Saints, but then again it was looked upon by the Blue Few as your cup final. Now that must have stung!

Anyway, not one person who really cares about football will give a **** about you pub side, Portsmuff are doomed to be remembered by what was wrong and rotten about football. It will be a lesson in history of how not to run a football club!

As for us, we will go marching on and enjoying the occasion. The PL awaits and our great club is in financial health with a nice shiny stadium, an academy to be envied and glorious support both home and away! These are indeed great times to be a Saints fan, if I were you I'd keep quiet who you once supported, otherwise a "care in the community order" might be envoked. For your own good, obviously!..... COYR's! FOP!
Pompey dreamers. Makes me laugh when I look at what Syphilis quotes. Three First Division titles but, when were they? More than 60 years ago. In fact it was so blooming long ago there was still rationing after the Second World War. 'Clapped out' (if you get my drift) Phil was probably not even born then.

Found this on Wiki - could it be the source of our hatred of the dirty skates? Its about the Southampton Dock strike in 1890.

" Towards the end of August, the Southampton Dock Company and the various shipping firms agreed to grant wage increases of 1d an hour. However, the Royal Mail Steampacket Company, which paid lower rates than the other principal firms, refused to bring its rates into line with the other companies. All of the employers, meanwhile, refused to grant official recognition to the Dockers' Union and the National Union of Seamen. Because of these two issues, a strike was declared on 7 September. Unlike the London Dock Strike, the strike in Southampton was marked by a certain amount of public disorder. Blacklegs from Portsmouth arriving at the railway station were attacked and large crowds gathered daily in the streets around the docks and, leading to fears of rioting. In response the Mayor requested assistance from the Home Office. The West Yorkshire Regiment was called in from Portsmouth, and the Mayor read the riot act. In the event, however, troops were not deployed, and streets such as Canute Road were instead cleared with the aid of the local fire-brigade, who opened their hoses on the crowds.
The strike was called off on 15 September after the London-based executives of the Dockers and Seamen's Unions announced that they would not make the strike official or release union funds for strike pay. This decision caused enormous bitterness and resulted in the collapse of the Dockers' Union in the town. One lasting impact of the strike was that it led to the formation of a Southampton Trades Council to coordinate union action in disputes.
The last word must be with one dock striker of the time, tired and without means to live other than returning to work:
” I had to face the police one day, and the soldiers the next, but on Saturday night I had to face the old woman, and that was the worst of all!” "

Insane Saint and Gossie are f*cking doing the business in the Chapel - at last we see the fire in their bellies as the SAINTS smash a poor Doncaster Rovers.

Next up blackpool ....

1) No way is Nigel gonna let that pipsqueak of a blackpool manager get the better of him.

blackpool can score goals - so what !!! - so can the SAINTS and we aim to WIN this one - no issue.

2) Saints Fans are mounting an assault on Blackpool by Train Car Van and Coach and we refuse to be beaten. There will be no bart in goal this time (sorry bart) and we will f*cking do them.

Top Tip : Use Text to arrange the Saints Pubs and do not post advance locations.

First Call are the regular Away Fan Pubs - Waterloo and the Auctioneer. (may be subject to change)

SAINTS Fans are Smart so let's get networking once we hit blackpool.

blackpool is ok with a new tram system and new rides and a lot of the locals are ok.

There are a few knobheads up there (correct terminology) so watch your backs.

Wear Colours : ALWAYS.

This Saints side is good but we can continue to improve. One example is Danny Butterfield who races up the wing and passes into space - there is often no one there and we lose possession.

EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY AND THEN BE READY TO WIN AT blackpool.

ian holloway shows lots of passion at the games and will be at home - let's see some fight from Nigel and the Coaching Team - WE ARE THE BETTER FOOTBALLING SIDE AND TOP OF THE LEAGUE.

Well Done to everyone for yesterday - full house and rocking.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON'S RED ARMY. FIGHT AND WIN. COYR.

EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY AND THEN BE READY TO WIN AT blackpool.

ian holloway shows lots of passion at the games and will be at home - let's see some fight from Nigel and the Coaching Team - WE ARE THE BETTER FOOTBALLING SIDE AND TOP OF THE LEAGUE.

Well Done to everyone for yesterday - full house and rocking.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON'S RED ARMY. FIGHT AND WIN. COYR.

What a great out yesterday from the open top drive from Ringwood to the open top drive home to Pocklington.
Not going to Blackpool - but that doesn't mean I won't be watching.
The stadium was great yesterday - noisy and full of excited fans...even the race around the pitch at HT had sliding tackles, and the running wounded carrying on for his team to eventaully win. The true "Spirit of Southampton" - well done nipper!
I will do Boro even though it is on TV as I promised myself I would, could and should. Posh will be another Tuesday away from work early...need a ticket for Coventry for me and the great nephew (under 11) in The Chapel.
I'm backing the boys from here - people from Southampton make sure Reading is a sell out...every voide matters...ask RedArmy1!!!

Found this on Wiki - could it be the source of our hatred of the dirty skates? Its about the Southampton Dock strike in 1890.

" Towards the end of August, the Southampton Dock Company and the various shipping firms agreed to grant wage increases of 1d an hour. However, the Royal Mail Steampacket Company, which paid lower rates than the other principal firms, refused to bring its rates into line with the other companies. All of the employers, meanwhile, refused to grant official recognition to the Dockers' Union and the National Union of Seamen. Because of these two issues, a strike was declared on 7 September. Unlike the London Dock Strike, the strike in Southampton was marked by a certain amount of public disorder. Blacklegs from Portsmouth arriving at the railway station were attacked and large crowds gathered daily in the streets around the docks and, leading to fears of rioting. In response the Mayor requested assistance from the Home Office. The West Yorkshire Regiment was called in from Portsmouth, and the Mayor read the riot act. In the event, however, troops were not deployed, and streets such as Canute Road were instead cleared with the aid of the local fire-brigade, who opened their hoses on the crowds.
The strike was called off on 15 September after the London-based executives of the Dockers and Seamen's Unions announced that they would not make the strike official or release union funds for strike pay. This decision caused enormous bitterness and resulted in the collapse of the Dockers' Union in the town. One lasting impact of the strike was that it led to the formation of a Southampton Trades Council to coordinate union action in disputes.
The last word must be with one dock striker of the time, tired and without means to live other than returning to work:
” I had to face the police one day, and the soldiers the next, but on Saturday night I had to face the old woman, and that was the worst of all!” "
There were a couple of interesting (hopefully factual) articles about the Southampton-Portsmou
th city/docks/football rivalry on the Ugly Inside a few weeks ago. It suggested that the 'fantom' Southampton strike-breaking action in Portsmouth was a myth generated by one Portsmouth union guy called Docker Hughes and it mentioned this as the more accurate origin of the despute. If so, then so much for their claims that it was Southampton who stabbed Portsmouth dockers in the back.

You try teaching English to the French.

Nightmare. I recall saying to some Froggies....

Totally differrent thread but at this stage of the season and the way it has gone so far, i would like to say a big thank you to our Chairman Nicola Cortasse, hope i've spelt it right.
This man and his dear friend came to our clubs rescue when we came very very close to folding, much the same as the club down the road.
He has grab this club with all it's faults, and we had a few, by the scruff of the neck and turned us into what we have today. He, with his board have taken decisions that have upset a few people but decisions that were needed to get us were we are. It looks to me that he has been strong and stood up to the bigger prem teams when he had to and also would not over pay players in wages. He and Nigel have got the players that we watch today on terms that suits the structure of our club. They are making sure between them that we will never go through the dark days of THE DARK LORD again, to which i for one am very gratefull.
I have never had the pleasure of seeing the man in the flesh so that i could show my thanks for what he has done for this club and it's fans. I believe he sometimes reads what we post so i hope he reads this and at one of our remaining home games, he would take a walk out to the centre circle so that i for one could stand and applaud him for his efforts so far.
In N C and N A i trust and hope we are blessed with this pair of gentlemen for a very long time . My thanks also goes all the backroom staff for the work they all do.
Yesterday with the full house is how i would hope it will be for the rest of the season and many more years to come. It helps the players, the club and makes it very hard for the away supporters to sing YOUR STADIUM'S TO BIG FOR YOU.
COYRSSSSS.

In N C and N A i trust and hope we are blessed with this pair of gentlemen for a very long time . My thanks also goes all the backroom staff for the work they all do.
Yesterday with the full house is how i would hope it will be for the rest of the season and many more years to come. It helps the players, the club and makes it very hard for the away supporters to sing YOUR STADIUM'S TO BIG FOR YOU.

Have you noticed that Alan Knight has dissapeared? Seed has mysteriously become more juvenile. So Seed is probably on holiday - and Alan Knight is filling in for him. They have probably realised that the character Seed gets more responses than all the other WUM's - so financially it makes sense to keep him on line all day.

I feel so sorry for their plight perhaps we should end their misery by putting them down - oh yes, April 7th....

You try teaching English to the French.

Nightmare. I recall saying to some Froggies....

"I ordered an omelette from the a la carte menu and then struck up a rapport with an entrepeneur, a concierge, a chauffeur and another provocateur who'd sent the communique to sabotage the facade on the abbatoir and the creche at the ballet school. Neglecting reconnaissance, carte blanche they'd got stuck in a cul de sac resulting in a melee and complete debacle. I keep an aide memoire vis a vis and a propos this tete-a-tete in my attache case with other bric-a-brac."

Of course I got blank looks all round. They just don't understand English.

I've never heard that said in France, but of course that was the title of the big hit for Edith Piaf - although the song was essentially about herself and how few sparrows climb that high on the showbiz ladder.

blackpool is a unique away venue in that lots of saints fans are making a weekend of it and plenty of time to suss out the venues pubs and fellow saints fans.

On Match Day the expectation is to wear the famous Saints Colours as we go to the game to WIN.

RED ARMY - THE PRIDE AND THE PASSION

It is a fun low risk place and everyone should have a great time !!!

The Waterloo and Auctioneer are the nominated Away Day Pubs. No ambush is expected (now we have moved away from the london games) - but get networking !!!

Those are regularly go to the Away Games know each other but for those who have not been Away before or a very long time etc

a) populate your mobile with other Saints Fans numbers.

b) find out if they are going and where they are drinking etc and how many fans are in the pub and all the other things you want to know etc ...

Work Smartly - it's the way ahead !!! and good practice for the london area pubs when you may have to move location.

Let's ramp it up and get the WIN against blackpool to get 81 points and continue to surge ahead of other Teams.

RED ARMY. WIN-WIN-WIN. COYR.

I've done Blackpool twice and as it's relatively close never made a weekend of it. My impression of the place is it is a sh*thole of the highest order. Behind the facade of the golden mile are years of neglect. If you think Hull is bad...wait until you visit Blackpool!
All that aside with friends for a few beers could change things, however the first time we went there we were the big time Charlies...they were right up for it. The ground and fans with a drum were quite poor.
I would rather go to see Posh game at London Road, and watch the fans at The Riverside turn on their team. It's a real treat for me!
One game at a time.
Chances to meet at the games.
Celebrate with a few beers, but not before the job is done!
I have a problem with fans spread across the cities ale houses, my loyalties are truly tested not to mention family ties and bringing another fan into the fold!
If we do achieve our target let's have a party at SMS on the concourses after the Coventry game. It could be the start of a great evening!

I hope Slugger's comment isn't going to have everyone on this site move too upmarket. I only come on here so I can get some experience of the riff raff (or ragtag and bobtails as my Auntie Elspeth calls all you lot).

Keep up the foul language Strass. If the site goes all hoi polloi, they won't let the likes of that wonderfully coarse Mr Seedhouse on and we'll have some toffee-nosed cavalry officer doing the job of Sergeant Maj Redarmy1.

Of course, that doesn't mean you have to sink to the level of the 'Undesirables' from 'The Land Beyond Fareham'.

Having said that, on actual match days I do think it would be nice if our supporters made an effort to take a shower beforehand and refrained from blowing off so regularly in the stadium seating area.

Just found this on Labrokes Website, I can only assume that it was written at the start of the season:

Promotion should not be considered by Southampton

Southampton are prominent in the Championship betting to win the title this season, but based on the results of the teams to have finished second in League One in their previous season, back-to-back promotions are definitely out of the question.

Never since the introduction of the Premier League has a team been promoted in successive seasons after finishing second in League One, let only finished second in the third tier and then gone on to win the Championship in the following season.

Therefore, Southampton’s chances of promotion to the Premier League look slim, although they should also have no problem consolidating their spot in the Championship.

Only Peterborough in the last 11 years have gone straight back down from the Championship after finishing second in League One in the previous season.

Southampton may think that one or two seasons settling into the Championship would allow them to assemble a squad ready for the Premier League, but history shows that this may not also be the case.

Of the last 17 teams to have claimed second spot in League One, only four have gone on to experience the Premier League at any time after their promotion.

However, the gulf in football between League One and the Championship appears to have diminished in recent seasons.

And if Southampton can make a better start to the season than in previous years, they will certainly give themselves a better chance of promotion in the Championship odds than is usually the case.

In the last five seasons, Southampton have never been in the top ten of a table at the start of September.

I hope Slugger's comment isn't going to have everyone on this site move too upmarket. I only come on here so I can get some experience of the riff raff (or ragtag and bobtails as my Auntie Elspeth calls all you lot). Keep up the foul language Strass. If the site goes all hoi polloi, they won't let the likes of that wonderfully coarse Mr Seedhouse on and we'll have some toffee-nosed cavalry officer doing the job of Sergeant Maj Redarmy1. Of course, that doesn't mean you have to sink to the level of the 'Undesirables' from 'The Land Beyond Fareham'. Having said that, on actual match days I do think it would be nice if our supporters made an effort to take a shower beforehand and refrained from blowing off so regularly in the stadium seating area.
Sorry....I'll take the shower in future...but my bottom gas problem is totally down to Cortese and his insistance on offering curry pies as my half time snack. Hopefully though, there will be a fair wind blowing into the faces of the Pompey few on 7th April! :O)
Confucious, if the Jumblies Stand is up & running by the 7th they should be able to assist in Hua Lian's enforced absence.
Rob, so the NZ crew is represented, if you bottle some of your best parps they could be transferred to balloons which can then be floated over and burst amongst the skates.

"UUrgh, Jeez, phwoar aargh!" they'll go as the special gift from the Kiwi Saints is delivered.

I'm working on it now; I'll have a word with Dan too - he's a man who likes his pies & beers so we should be okay for gas preparation.

We'll just need to find an international freight carrier willing & prepared to do the job of transporting & delivering such a large & dangerous cargo, especially at such short notice.

Leave it with us, & look forward to a special delivery for the few from "The Land Beyond Fareham".

Totally differrent thread but at this stage of the season and the way it has gone so far, i would like to say a big thank you to our Chairman Nicola Cortasse, hope i've spelt it right.
This man and his dear friend came to our clubs rescue when we came very very close to folding, much the same as the club down the road.
He has grab this club with all it's faults, and we had a few, by the scruff of the neck and turned us into what we have today. He, with his board have taken decisions that have upset a few people but decisions that were needed to get us were we are. It looks to me that he has been strong and stood up to the bigger prem teams when he had to and also would not over pay players in wages. He and Nigel have got the players that we watch today on terms that suits the structure of our club. They are making sure between them that we will never go through the dark days of THE DARK LORD again, to which i for one am very gratefull.
I have never had the pleasure of seeing the man in the flesh so that i could show my thanks for what he has done for this club and it's fans. I believe he sometimes reads what we post so i hope he reads this and at one of our remaining home games, he would take a walk out to the centre circle so that i for one could stand and applaud him for his efforts so far.
In N C and N A i trust and hope we are blessed with this pair of gentlemen for a very long time . My thanks also goes all the backroom staff for the work they all do.
Yesterday with the full house is how i would hope it will be for the rest of the season and many more years to come. It helps the players, the club and makes it very hard for the away supporters to sing YOUR STADIUM'S TO BIG FOR YOU.
COYRSSSSS.
bang on Bob! :O)
exellaint post, totally agree, don;t worry about being the wrong thread, perhaps the Echo should think about us making our own threads, just think about the publicity you would get, it's easy to do, the fans that come on here would love I'm sure ???

Nicola Cortese will love that Bob!!

Rob and Bill.. Beans for brekkie is the story but I'll have some fried onions with my pork chops tonight with plenty of chinese cabbage.. Here in Tirau we have a world famous balloon outfit that do the decs and pyrotechnics for olympics, special events etc.. should be no trouble to get some good gas over the visitors.. in fact I'm sure we'd get the trapese airbourne too.. a few good catapults left on certain seats will ensure the mother load is delivered!
