Spurs Trip Now Sold Out
at 20:43:25

The 13,000 to Nottingham Forest on this day (29 January) in 1977 was probably our biggest away following for a 4th rd FA Cup tie.

If we'd demanded the same percentage allocation that we gave Spurs at St Mary's, we could have 9,000 had fans there on Wednesday night.

All Change At Right Back For Saints
at 19:49:14

Arsenal are paying less than 1 million for him, whereas our results when Cedric hasn't been in our team indicate his loss is going to cost the club millions of pounds in lost league place money. So, no it's not sensible at all.

Just to highlight how bad we are without Cedric, we haven't won a single league game this season when he wasn't in the team

All Change At Right Back For Saints
at 18:53:11

For those who don't realize just how important Cedric is to our team, just look at our results this season when Cedric didn't play, including the 0-3 opening day defeat to Burnley, the 1-4 home defeat to Chelsea and the 0-9 defeat to Leicester. Without him,our defence seems to fall apart.

All Change At Right Back For Saints
at 16:47:11

Kat and Gao really are desperate for cash if they are prepared to let a first team regular go mid-season. They don't care whether they are jeopardising our chances of a good league position, possibly even Europa League, and a cup final in the second half of the season as they feel we are no longer threatened with relegation, but without our regular right back, we might be.

W;aker-Peters is a young, untried player, currently 4th choice at Spurs, who might be a good prospect for the future but not at the cost of losing a top class first team regular like Cedric.

Late Surge Could See Sell Out For Spurs Cup Tie

Yes, looks like there will be a 30,000 gate. Let's hope the Chapel kop can up its game to compete with the 5,300 Spurs fans in the away end.

Can Saints Challenge For A European Spot ?
at 15:12:39

The same people who were moaning that it was impossible for any other team to challenge the big six are now moaning that it's a poor quality league because any team can.

It is, in fact, the best league in the world with the best teams and players it has ever had. The top team are the European and World Club Champions. The Champions League Final was contested by 2 Premier League teams and you'd take every team in the Premier League to beat the team in the same position in any other league in the world.

So, the Premier League is the strongest league in the world, we are 9th in it and have a chance of finishing 5th and that's a good thing.

Three Wins From Safety
at 08:12:24

Saints are currently 25/1 10th favourites for relegation and 13/8 to finish in the top 10.

Of more interest is how many more points we need to secure our 5th top 8 finish in 7 years.

Three Wins From Safety
at 06:50:34

Next season will be Saints' 44th in the top flight in 54 years and I have witnessed all of them, right back to our first ever game in the top flight, v Man City. A highlight of that first top flight season was seeing Saints beat West Ham's 'World Cup winning team', including Moore, Hurst & Peters, 6-2.

For comparison, Pompey spent a total of 33 seasons in the top flight, most of them more than 70 years ago and even I wasn't born then.

Season Ticket Holders Get A Great Price For Spurs FA Cup Tickets
at 14:44:21

Yes, 5,200 Spurs fans being given the whole of the Northam end and paying just £10 each. We've never been quite this generous to away fans before. Why start now??? Is the ticket office manager a big Spurs fan?

Meanwhile the ticket office is taking the smallest possible away allocations for London games, preventing thousands of Saints fans from buying tickets.

Perhaps it's time to start a campaign: #MoreTicketsforSaintsFans

Forget Full Backs It's A Central Defender We Need !
at 19:33:30

Stephens and Bednarek are the best young pair of centre backs in the country, and Ralph knows it, which is why he is not looking for a central defender. But, it would be good if we could get rid of Vestergaard and bring in a replacement as cover in case either Stephens or Bednarek get injured.

Saints At Chelsea The Verdict
at 19:09:51

Another great performance at Stamford Bridge. It's amazing how many time we've won there by 2 goals or more. In contrast, little Pompey haven't beaten Chelsea home or away for 60 years.

Our young British players, Stephens, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Obafemi etc are all improving together and developing a terrific team spirit. Credit to Ralph, the manager who has inspired them. That 2nd goal today was one of the best team goals scored in the Premier League.

Saints At Aston Villa The Verdict
at 19:45:35

With players like Ings and Stephens we are developing a nucleus of players who are really happy to be playing for our club and for whom a Saints win is more important than a payday. We are getting a Southampton team identity back again and the fans are now beginning to respond to it.

"another cheap option at around the £5 million mark " I think you've got your finger on the pulse of the club's transfer policy there, although loanees who'll cost nothing will probably be their first choice.

Saints Fans Were Magnificent !
at 15:27:37

The home support is always so much better when there are very few away fans in the Northam . That was the case in League One and that was the case again last night. Usually, our home singing sections in their two small groups are drowned out by thousands of away fans in one big group.

Also, sound carries much more when the stadium is not full. You'll hear 300 fans much more clearly in an empty stadium than you will 3,000 in a full one.
