The Future Of The Club Speaks Out
Friday, 5th Jan 2018 16:00 by Oscar
One of our younger supporters has written a great piece about how he thinks the club should go forward, it's nice to see such a well thought out article and bodes well that the club will be well supported going forward.
Oscar may only be 9 1/2 but he is a passionate Saints fan and he seems to have a handle on what is happening at Saints at the moment that would be impressive from a supporter three times his age
Dear Southampton Football Club,
I am here to inform you about a crisis that must be dealt with. Our current manager `Pellegrino` is driving our otherwise successful football club into a place of jeopardy due to the horrendous squad selections. He constantly changes the team around meaning none of the team are able to play to their strengths as they can’t get used to their new teammates.
Another reason to give him the sack is when we went to play Tottenham Hotspur we had gone through a two hour journey to get there and what do we do? We lose 5-2 once again due to wrong tactics, the wrong players starting and the wrong formation. I personally would play a defensive line up due to the naturally gifted players like Ali, Erikson, Kane and Son all capable of finding the back of the net. So why not play a defensive line up?
What squad to choose?
I would choose this as our usual team...
Boufal Ward Prowse Tadic
Bertrand Hoedt Yoshida Cedric
Who to bring in ?
Lamela Spurs Winger
Coman Bayern Munich Winger
Can Liverpool Central Midfielder
Heaton Burnley Goal Keeper
Batra BVB Centre Back
Why to bring them in…
He is greatly gifted and very comfortable on the ball and best of all he is confident just what our squad is lacking. I would offer around 18M
He has the same style of play but is far better. I would offer around 27M
He would be a very good it with James Ward Prowse. I would offer around 20M
To replace Forster as he lets in far too many sloppy goals .I would offer 12M
To replace Van Dijk as he has gone to Liverpool. I do not know how much to offer
I hope that all Saints supporters consider my views as I am dedicating this article for the future of our football club and hope that this article may change your perspective of our manager.

Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 23/3/02 by wessex_exile
Ahead of another vital match in our bid for promotion back to League 1, this time at t’other St James’ Park in Devon, we return to our previous spell at that level, and dip again into one of the odder football rivalries (given that over 100 miles separates us from them).
Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.

One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.
