Just got back from the game and it was ofcourse a dreadful performance. But even worse, to see stewards physically man handling Saints fans just because they dared to have a chat with visiting fans before the game in the Northam car park is just disgusting. Fans have been mingling before games for 20 years. I have never seen any issues before the game since the ground was built. Today people visiting the ticket office had to go all the way round the ground to get their ticket and then all the way round again to get to their seat. A lot of fans were getting very angry with burly stewards saying we arn't allowed to mix with the wolves fans, like we are all school kids. Not allowed to have a chat with visiting fans before the game? Pathetic treatment of the fans again from Saints.
I was at the game, on the way back and that was a fantastic performance. A team that has scored 16 goals in their last 3 games couldn't get through us. But for football being corrupt, we would have won the game. Ralph is doing a wonderful job. Let's beat Wolves next week and these draws will be very worthwhile. Up the Saints!
Took one look at the online ticketing map and there are some blocks, like block 15, 3 and 19 which are 75 per cent empty. Some blocks half empty with the only areas being mostly sold is the Northam and the cheaper corner section of the ground. Since the lockdown, there has been a massive drop in supporter attendance by the looks of it.
What is wrong with these animals? Hungarian players clapping their fans at the end too. The country must be banned for 10 years from any competition. Taking the knee is one thing, but this behaviour should be punished severely, otherwise it won't stop.
This seems like a good idea. Those who want to stand can stand, those who don't can sit. It should be a cheaper section too, allowing fans in, who can't normally afford to go. Saints would surely turn the Northam home section into safe standing, next to the away fans or maybe the whole of the Chapel end.
Scored a hat trick the other night and another goal today. He was excellent in Scotland last year. Perhaps he has developed into a decent player? Redmond came on too, and was instantly effective setting up the goal. A good point in the end, which will be very useful if we can beat West Ham next. Would be good to see a full house at St Mary's for hopefully our first win.
I have a close family member setting up a stall or something and trying to convince them to display some Saints stuff or do something Saints related! Not sure what the club are doing, but Southampton Football Club I hope will be represented at Southampton Pride as the city's football club supporting the gay community and football for all.
A great point today and a relief to be honest that we didn't get thrashed and got an important point. Ralph brought on Bednerac and Diallo early on in the 2nd half to prevent the usual collapse in defence and it worked. We tightened up and bizarrely, it helped us going forward to and we nearly won it. A great feel good result after so much stress over the last few weeks.
There were still cobwebs all over the seats, the bar codes didn't work properly and many got in late but we got a good result today and played well. And I'm hearing a rumour we will be getting a refund. Rightly so, but today has been an encouraging day all round.
Ours haven't arrived in the post today. So those who haven't got theirs, have to go to the ticket office Sunday to get duplicates? So thousands of fans will be queuing up for paper duplicates before the game (or not as some won't bother). Utter chaos and shambles.
The club are looking for investment and / or a new owner. They accept Gao can't take us to the next level, but won't just accept the first person that comes along that "we won't like"! I thought they came across well. Gao allows Semmens and Steele to have a say which is good. The situation seems clear at least.
