Saints Get Away Tie In FA Cup
Tuesday, 6th Dec 2016 09:30
Saints will begin their FA Cup campaign with a difficult trip to East Anglia to face the Canaries of Norwich City.
Saints will travel to a ground where they have always have had mixed fortunes when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Whilst this is not the most difficult tie they could have faced and is better than going to any of the Premier Norwich is still a tough place to go and despite losing 5 out of the last 6 League games the Canaries still sit only a point off the play off spots.
The hope is that Norwich will have their eyes on promotion and will play a changed side against Saints, mind you we will have our eyes on our trip to Liverpool a few days later in the League Cup semi final.
Saints lost at Carrow Road last season on January 2nd when Victor Wanyama was sent off in a 1-0 defeat, Natan Redmond playing for the Canaries.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
