  • "SFC Old Boy and H E Bob.. cheers guys. Bob that bit at the bottom makes us all recall Ray The Turk who surely is our Bard in the shy watching over our fans.
    Old Fella..Magic post.. we love comments that paint the atmosphere and your post does that..
    On Friday I was stunned and almost burst into tears as Norris scored so deep into stoppages.. but Yesterday the game flew by and certainly in the second half just by ignoring the comments and listening to the crowd you could tell there was only one team going to win.. did feel a bit sorry for their young striker.. he'll have better days.

    Good on You All.. The Best!
    On Sunday NZ Fans will put together a song and stick it on facebook.. we're expecting about 30 Red and Whites in Hamilton NZ at The C0ck and Bull for Sunday Lunch and a good Saintly sing song.

    Cheers All"

Hammers hang on with a point

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

Nigel Adkins - waiting game

First published in Saints News

Ricardo Vaz Te’s dramatic penalty leveller for West Ham tonight ensured Saints will have to wait a bit longer to celebrate promotion.

Vaz Te converted an 89th minute spot-kick to give the Hammers a 3-3 draw at home to Birmingham – after they had trailed 3-1 with 20 minutes left.

Had West Ham lost to the Blues, Saints would have moved 10 points ahead of them by beating Reading at St Mary’s on Friday night.

Nigel Adkins’ men would then be celebrating promotion had the Hammers then lost at home to Brighton the following day.

As it is, even if Saints beat Reading and West Ham lose to Brighton, Saints will be nine points ahead of the Hammers with three games left - and boasting a superior goal difference.

But mathematically, they would not be assured of promotion prior to next Tuesday’s visit to Peterborough.

The best Palace v Saints coverage is in tomorrow’s Daily Echo.
