Nearly spat me tea out when reading a tweet from some plum on twitter about out how one qualifies to become an 'Ultra'........(apparently they were out in force at the Brentford game but sadly i must have blinked cos i didn't see the two of 'em)
Sadly this was followed by having to endure a couple of twenty year old 'plums' (Cholmondley-Warner types) on the tube back to Waterloo giving their expert opinion on Chelsea and how they hoped Abramovich made a return on his investment. Switched off at the point where they commented on how marvelous it was that Arsenal were gonna make the top four!
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the experience. In my heart of hearts i am hoping that i am going to regret not travelling up today (in order to queue for an hour or two) to catch the game and see Saints pull off a result.
Instead i will now be tending to the garden and parking my backside on the couch around 13:00hrs.
Nice to see the Saints / Hummel retro kits. Have to say they certainly produced some of the all time greats. Seeing 'Draper' / 'Draper Tools' as the sponsor got me thinking at how it must be nice for them getting some free publicity, that said are Draper still going? Is their 'base' still in Eastleigh / Chandlers Ford?
Fair play, maybe all footballers are not complete thickos and some do have the odd brain cell.
Apparently the lad agreed a new contract / deal with City which he brokered all by himself and no agent involvement. You never know, perhaps this could catch on and wipe out at least a small portion of the greedy agent fees (probably wont however and the players will simply coin more cash for themselves).
Mind you, most footballers probably need an agent to write 'print' their names below the signatures.
.....or adopted the wonderful 'Southampton Way' of doing things, is anyone else asking themselves when we might see some similar results, i.e. us winning the league or pushing the top 6 (so when they fail we are there) to 'mop up' one of the European spots?
Just wondering if the wheels are still on the bus or not.......
