Last Few Tickets Left For Newcastle Game
Saturday, 14th Oct 2017 09:50
Saints look likely to make it five home sell outs in a row for the visit of Newcastle United with the last few tickets likely to be snapped up by Saturday lunchtime.
Very few tickets remain for the game against the Toon Army on Sunday, a quick look at the club's online ticketing system shows that although couple of sections have a couple of dozen seats available in a block, most are sold out or have only the odd seat here and there available.
So with only 100 or so still left it seems likely that by lunchtime these too will be gone to make it five straight Premier league home fixtures completely sold out, something that has never been done from the start of the season and perhaps never in our history, proving that although Saints supporters are not enthused at the moment by the results on the pitch and lack of goals, they remain as loyal as any other fane.
Our friends down at the Eastern End of the M27 like to self profess themselves the best supporters in the World, but when they were in the Premier League they could not sell out a ground only holding 21,000, they might try to ridicule our support and I myself have criticised it at times, but the fact remains that Southampton supporters are loyal and stay behind their team as has been shown by the sell outs this season even when things arent going so well.

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.
