|Has Gao cracked it?|

With us flying up the league quicker than Harry and Meghan can get a flight out of the UK, has our owner sussed out his magic formula and does he deserve heaps more of our respect and adoration?
Not sure how long he has been here now but with the average profit coming in (nett player sales / buys) at circa £10m / season over the last 5 years (£47,750,000) and us still playing in the top flight are with doing him a disservice to actually how clever the little man is?
Respect to Ralph and the lads for the result the weekend, amazing transformation - Buggs, you called it spot on my man. - respect, i thought a draw would be a fantastic result but to win at their place was top drawer.

Chris Packham talking punk and plenty of sights on show in or around Southampton in the 70's. Interesting, and not a mobile in sight.
|Anyone got any decent gigs coming up this year?|

For me Napalm Death and Black Midi in February so a few bits on the radar. Both local / small venues with one at the Anvil and the other at the Joiners.
Did have tickets for Black Futures at the Joiners too but the būggers cancelled due to a supporting slot coming up on another acts tour.

....thought i would pose the question of 'when was your favorite era of watching Saints?'
A tough call in some respects but i suspect a lot will suggest the L1 / Championship years whilst others whom are of slightly older persuasion might say the 80's when we we runners up etc...and when football was still almost a working 'mans' (am i allowed to say this?) game.
For me i have to say that the recent successes we have had following our close demise is right up there but (possibly due to my age) i have to say i loved the 90's at the Dell. Yes, often a relegation scrap, but the tightness of the Archers along with the never say die attitude did it for me. I am old enough to remember the Lawrie Mac years but being blunt i was still pretty young to appreciate what a side we had then.

How many goals will Ings bag, and how many times will VAR save our skins again?

....recall all their dodgy 'Mind The Gap' tat and memorabilia, or are they simply toying with us? Anyone care to go out on a limb and say we will finish miles above them come the end of season?

44 today - Happy Birthday.
So, one of the primary reasons for our relegation last time around was due to Killer being out. Are we sleep walking the same trodden path this season with our lack of 'decent' quality at centre back!?!
Fail to sort this out in January and watch your £200m decrease rapidly Mr Gao.

...i didn't think we would beat Leicester anyway and Newcastle have managed only a point at home to Wolves, so aside from a having a hammering on the goal difference it ain't all that bad eh. Win the next game, job's a goodun

Yes Ralph has to take some of the blame for last night but are those calling for his head confident that Gao won't go and appoint Kenny Jacket as a replacement?
Sorry but 95% of our players are simply Championship level at best. We have got out of jail the last few seasons and still never took the hint.....
