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.

Could we showcase Redmond, with a view to them buying him back?

No larry12 Man City and Real Madrid will be battling for Nathan's signature as soon as he starts proving he is better than Mane...

It is never good to be drawn away in the third round, the last time we did really well in 2003 we played mostly at home on our march to Wembley. As you say Nick it could have been worse and at least we didn't get Palace away.

If we play as we are at the moment the very best we can hope for at Carrow Road is 0-0 but we don't really want an extra replay either to add to our fixture overload.

Best bet is to do a Wenger, put out the kids, sit back and watch how they get on. If we lose, we lose.
