Saints land four Sky TV dates

Saints land four Sky TV dates

Saints boss Nigel Adkins

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini

First published in Saints News

Saints' first Premier League fixture of the season at champions Manchester City has been switched to Sunday for live coverage on Sky Sports.

The match is one of four fixtures that Sky will show before the end of November.

The City game has been bumped to Sunday, August 19, with 1 4pm kick.

Saints' home game against Manchester United finds itself in the same time slot on Sunday, September 2.

Also changed is the visit of Fulham, which now kicks-off at 1.30pm on Sunday, October 7, while the trip to West Brom is a Monday night game with an 8pm kick-off on Monday, November 5.

Also altered is Saints' home game against Tottenham which will now be on Sunday, October 28, with a 3pm kick-off. This game is not televised but moved due to Spurs' involvement in the Europa League.

The away trip to Manchester United has also been pushed back a day to Wednesday, January 30, with an 8pm start time.

All of Saints' initial televised games are on Sky Sports with ESPN not picking any of their matches amongst the 11 they will be broadcasting before the end of November.

Comic genius!

I thought exactly the same - but more about fans moaning about the cost of a ticket - then getting to SMS with the bonfires out of control and the firemen getting in their way!

Then I realised it's not about the fans - it's all about SKY and the revenue they bring to the club!

Whatever happened to Catherine Wheels and Jumping Jacks? All went up in a puff of smoke...just like the football on Saturday campaign! Still we won't be playing on Friday nights again for a while!

Great that the Man City game will be televised. Our shock victory there will be all the more significant for having a huge audience. In particular our third goal, resulting from a mesmerising piece of wizardry from Lallana and a spectacular Lambert header, will deserve half a billion viewers minumum.

Presume we'll also be able to wear our predominently red kit so it's seen by many millions on TV across Asia. Red is THE colour for attracting fans in Asia (where colour matters hugely) and I'm sure this influenced the choice. If Tadanari Lee gets a look-in at City, shirt sales in Japan will soar.

What a day - three points and a commercial coup to boot.

Even though I of course would have loved to live in Southampton and watch all the games at SMS, the next best thing is in fact to live in Norway, as I may see all Southampton games on tv.

And how I'm looking forward to go to the local pub, crowded with fans from the other team, (that will count for whomever Sotons playing) singing and shouting as we score goals. And all of this wearing the lovley new shirt.

Regarding the new shirts, I urge all fans to give credit where it belongs this season. Yes, there are many who should be credited for Southampton finally being back, but I for one will have Liebherr printed on the back, with Number 1. It would be a really nice way for us to show our gratitude, if Liebherr would be one of the most popular prints, alongside Lallane, Lambert, J-Rod and so on.

I don't agree with your premise. Given we have one of the best academies in the land I think we can easily produce half a dozen Premiership-standard footballers.

Besides, I don't think anyone is going to stick dogmatically to some 50% quota. It's more a general objective than a strict directive. If the homegrown players aren't ready then of course we'll look elsewhere to maintain Premiership status.

We need to buy in at least 2-3 players with top level experience to stay in premiership.
It is not unrealistic that over the next 4 seasons we will blood one youngster a season into the squad and team.
But need experienced top players to compliment that.
Stevie Williams learnt a lot from the likes of Osgood and Charlie George, though George's knee shortened his career with us.
Yes we have some good players who will make it at this level but we need a few players proven at this level to take us that step further. Survival has to be the name of the game this season.
Reading and West Ham have both been busy on the transfer market already.
Seems strange to write an article saying most games will be 3pm saturday and then the next see 5 changes to different days by the end of november

I hope you're right. I think 3-4 is more realistic.

I know times have changed but which Saints' team had the highest number of academy-produced first-team players?

Going back to Nick Holmes, then Steve Williams, in the late 70s - early 80s, there was (I'll need help here) Waldren, Agbula, Andrewjeski, Baker (G), Baker (S), Moran, Funnell, Hebberd ...... and we could add Channon after he came home from your neck of the woods.

Now that's impressive but how many at most played in the same side at the same time?

Meanwhile, rather than playing against the best that the UK and Ireland could produce (and Ivan Golac), Premiership teams are now competing against teams comprised of world-class players. Just how many homegrown players can you let loose at once in that context?

Put another way, in any one season, what is the highest number of 'locals' that manure have ever fielded? As many as six?

You could indeed be right, but don’t forget:
You can't win anything with kids (Alan Hansen 1995–96), United won a league and cup double that season.
I’m not stupid enough to be predicting that, but I believe if the youth are good enough they are old enough. As it goes, I am fairly stupid though, I put my money on Black Caviar but that’s another story.

Reading and West Ham have both been busy on the transfer market already. Seems strange to write an article saying most games will be 3pm saturday and then the next see 5 changes to different days by the end of november[/p][/quote]You could indeed be right, but don’t forget: You can't win anything with kids (Alan Hansen 1995–96), United won a league and cup double that season. I’m not stupid enough to be predicting that, but I believe if the youth are good enough they are old enough. As it goes, I am fairly stupid though, I put my money on Black Caviar but that’s another story. Mush On The Beach

You should not make such comments without knowing the full facts.I have been going to the dell since the days of Charlie Wayman.I have lived and worked on the small Atlantic Island of Madeira for the last 26 years and listen to every game on the saints player, i pay more than the cost of season ticket just to see one match, i sent a three figured check when we were in trouble three years ago, supported Ron Davis in his hour of need. do i need to go on or do you need to know that i have been on Chemotherapy for the last two years and my wife who works full time in her dental clinic then spends the remainder of her time looking after me.

Interested in your thoughts
I don't agree with your premise. Given we have one of the best academies in the land I think we can easily produce half a dozen Premiership-standard footballers.

Besides, I don't think anyone is going to stick dogmatically to some 50% quota. It's more a general objective than a strict directive. If the homegrown players aren't ready then of course we'll look elsewhere to maintain Premiership status.
I hope you're right. I think 3-4 is more realistic.

I know times have changed but which Saints' team had the highest number of academy-produced first-team players?

Going back to Nick Holmes, then Steve Williams, in the late 70s - early 80s, there was (I'll need help here) Waldren, Agbula, Andrewjeski, Baker (G), Baker (S), Moran, Funnell, Hebberd ...... and we could add Channon after he came home from your neck of the woods.

Now that's impressive but how many at most played in the same side at the same time?

Meanwhile, rather than playing against the best that the UK and Ireland could produce (and Ivan Golac), Premiership teams are now competing against teams comprised of world-class players. Just how many homegrown players can you let loose at once in that context?

Put another way, in any one season, what is the highest number of 'locals' that manure have ever fielded? As many as six?
Good question: I'm sure there must have been a side with Beckham, Butt, Neville (x2), Giggs, Scholes and Gillespie. That's quite a few, isn't it?

It's impressive but they don't manage this every season. I still think 6 on a regular basis is ambitious. Then again, there's nothing wrong with ambition.

OOps, PUBLIC apology please?
Permit me to go on an off piste slalom of thoughts.
I find the joyful conundrum of communication over the internet a curious thing. On the whole we are all anonymous to each other, but we all share a passion of singularity to our beloved Saints from all corners of the globe.

The weird thing is that it is a one dimension where now and again people feel insulted and
violated by others as you do now..... Sometimes this can be right, but mainly I say wrongly as I say you are feeling it wrongly now. People cannot always interpret the humour / light heartedness on the internet that the messenger is trying to communicate. It wouldn’t happen if you were sat face to face in a Pub.

I’ll give you some examples of people I don’t know bit I trust would not take offence to the odd light bit of banter:

I think Seedhouse is a Tory Twaat, with CRABS.
At School, Slugger used to play in sandpits up until the age of 15.
Strasbourg read animal **** behind the bike sheds and became inspired to become a teacher of literature.
St Retford needs to get a more demanding job to get him off here 24/7.
Mack Chinnon shags your girlfriends.
Fatty X Ford Worker is the soul reason why the Transit van died in Eastleigh.
REDARMY 1, he was Sluggers best mate in the sandpit.
The OLD SFC Fellas play Bingo on Wednesday and Sundays.
Oh the list goes on of glorious different personalities to whom I adore their opinions and comments on here and probably insult now and again. Never take anyone too seriously or too directly

P.S.

Go to the Pink Pussycat in LA, I’m not sure they will show the game though

Nicely put, Mush ..... may your chooks turn into emus and kick your dunny down. Curious why the word 'FARM' appears as ****, though :)

LeoSaint, have a great time on the West Coast. I've never been to Yosemite Park but it must be amazing, like watching a Ron Davies header, a pin-point Terry Paine cross, a Matt Le Tiss special and a Bobby Stokes Wembley winner all in one.

My Portuguese loved one is taking her Mum to Madeira next week. So, if you see two women (mother and daughter) looking totally lost (can't be related to Vasco de Gama), drinking all the wine (might be related to Oliver Read) and bullying the shopkeepers into reducing everything by 80% (might be The Don's Portuguese cousins!), then that'll be them and I apologise now.

Curious why the word 'FARM' appears as ****, though :) LeoSaint, have a great time on the West Coast. I've never been to Yosemite Park but it must be amazing, like watching a Ron Davies header, a pin-point Terry Paine cross, a Matt Le Tiss special and a Bobby Stokes Wembley winner all in one. My Portuguese loved one is taking her Mum to Madeira next week. So, if you see two women (mother and daughter) looking totally lost (can't be related to Vasco de Gama), drinking all the wine (might be related to Oliver Read) and bullying the shopkeepers into reducing everything by 80% (might be The Don's Portuguese cousins!), then that'll be them and I apologise now.

You should not make such comments without knowing the full facts.I have been going to the dell since the days of Charlie Wayman.I have lived and worked on the small Atlantic Island of Madeira for the last 26 years and listen to every game on the saints player, i pay more than the cost of season ticket just to see one match, i sent a three figured check when we were in trouble three years ago, supported Ron Davis in his hour of need. do i need to go on or do you need to know that i have been on Chemotherapy for the last two years and my wife who works full time in her dental clinic then spends the remainder of her time looking after me. I am now i remission but for how long i do not know.What i do know is my wife has always wanted to visit Yosemite National park.So with an uncertain future i decided to take my wife on her dream holiday which she richly deserves and not go to the Man. city match. Pleases in future put our brain into gear before you open your mouth.
I was joking. Lampooning the only-season-ticket-h olders-who-go-to-eve ry-home-and-away-gam e-are-allowed-to-com ment mentality is the new Matty Holland. (Get well soon though.)
Wow, awkwaaard.... The perils of inside jokes. Leosaint, the joke is funny in the context of all the "true fan" debates on here. Clearly not in the context of your illness. Most importantly, you were clearly (to regulars) not the target of the joke. all the best and enjoy the US.

OOps, PUBLIC apology please?
Permit me to go on an off piste slalom of thoughts.
I find the joyful conundrum of communication over the internet a curious thing. On the whole we are all anonymous to each other, but we all share a passion of singularity to our beloved Saints from all corners of the globe.

The weird thing is that it is a one dimension where now and again people feel insulted and
violated by others as you do now..... Sometimes this can be right, but mainly I say wrongly as I say you are feeling it wrongly now. People cannot always interpret the humour / light heartedness on the internet that the messenger is trying to communicate. It wouldn’t happen if you were sat face to face in a Pub.

I’ll give you some examples of people I don’t know bit I trust would not take offence to the odd light bit of banter:

I think Seedhouse is a Tory Twaat, with CRABS.
At School, Slugger used to play in sandpits up until the age of 15.
Strasbourg read animal **** behind the bike sheds and became inspired to become a teacher of literature.
St Retford needs to get a more demanding job to get him off here 24/7.
Mack Chinnon shags your girlfriends.
Fatty X Ford Worker is the soul reason why the Transit van died in Eastleigh.
REDARMY 1, he was Sluggers best mate in the sandpit.
The OLD SFC Fellas play Bingo on Wednesday and Sundays.
Oh the list goes on of glorious different personalities to whom I adore their opinions and comments on here and probably insult now and again. Never take anyone too seriously or too directly

P.S.

Go to the Pink Pussycat in LA, I’m not sure they will show the game though
Brilliant.

Some are missing the point when saying how many academy players teams average in their first team and saying ours is no better.

We've produced far more than most but our previous league position and finances stopped us from keeping them. If we're serious about stopping that then I believe we can achieve the target.

Fox Soccer Channel or ESPN (2) will show the game. If you are in LA the best place to watch is the Old Kings Head in Santa Monica.

Try Googling something like 'soccer live feeds'. You'll get a drop down list. A reliable one seems to be First Row (www.thefirstrow.eu)
.

Normally, on here, on match days, overseas fans share any links they can find, so check in here if Fox Soccer Channel or ESPN can't help you.

Of course, some weeks we're out of luck and there's no live streams but other weeks we get lucky.

When games are screened by Sky etc. there are usually a few options.

Of those options, some will want you to register but others don't seem to be so fussy.

Good luck, FloridaSpike!
