Limited crowds allowed back at football in December
at 15:24 23 Nov 2020

It looks like the tier system will mean that southern teams will be allowed to have crowds but most northern teams won't. So, we can expect plenty of whingeing from Liverpool.

Country Music
at 21:55 20 Nov 2020

Understandably, with coronavirus making life difficult for film and programme makers, there isn't a lot of good new stuff on TV but the PBS America 8-part documentary series on the history of country music is well worth watching. Whatever your taste in music, I highly recommend it.

Good job we got rid of Krueger and Reed

They were more interested in helping Liverpool than Saints.

The current board is so much better.

Belgium v England
at 21:15 15 Nov 2020

Thank God, Mount has been subbed at last. When you play a team like Belgium you can't afford the luxury of playing both Grealish and a second-rate version of him, like Mount, who has zero impact. If Ward-Prowse had been available tonight, we might have got a a draw, with his tackling stopping the Belgians in midfield and the strong possibility of him scoring or setting up a goal from a set piece.

If mediocre players like Mount and Winks played for a team like Villa, would they be in the England team? Of course not.

So, that win for Man United means we'll go into a third day, still top of the league.

SAINTS TOP OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE
at 22:07 6 Nov 2020

And top of the league in November, not just August or September.

This is the first time a south coast team have been top of the Premier League this late in the season.


A six match unbeaten run too.

The price of an average central defender
at 12:40 22 Oct 2020

Brighton are likely to demand AT LEAST £50m for centre-back Ben White if Liverpool seek to replace injured Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk.

Jonah Bale strikes again
at 18:42 18 Oct 2020

I remember the first two seasons he was at Spurs they never won a league game with Bale in the team. I can't recall a jinx like it. Now, it looks like he's jinxing them again. Spurs were 3-0 up when he came on and then conceded 3 goals.

Looks like we have some great young prospects in the Academy, including Goran Babic and Sam Bellis.

Goran Babic
at 15:13 12 Oct 2020

"Southampton have no shortage of academy graduates to be proud of.

The youth set-up at Staplewood has produced Matt Le Tissier, Alan Shearer, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gareth Bale.

And it has also contributed to Ralph Hasenhuttl's current side with Jack Stephens and James Ward-Prowse both climbing the ranks to the first team.And the likes of Michael Obafemi and Will Smallbone are both waiting in the wings to become stars themselves.

So who is the next big thing to roll off the production line? Please welcome, Goran Babic.

The 17-year-old central midfielder has been named on the Guardian's illustrious 'Next Generation' list for 2020 which identifies 20 of the very best teenage talents at Premier League clubs each season.

The Serbian-born wonderkid made the step up to full-time training with the club's Under-18s side back in September and has continued to impress during his early season performances. Like any Saints academy graduate, you can guarantee that he is bursting with technical ability.

Babic loves a tackle and, above all, he loves to win. There are shades of James Ward-Prowse about him in the set-piece execution and the way that he picks up the ball and drives at the opposition box."

Brilliant documentary.
