Never Minds The Transfers Here's The Free Ice Creams !
Thursday, 9th Aug 2018 13:07
Forget the headline, life has to go on regardless of Saints deadline day events, but there is free ice cream on Saturday for Saints supporters courtesy of Virgin Media.
I would imagine that some people will take offence to the fact that on a day so serious as the transfer deadline that Saints have announced that there will be free ice cream for those going to the Burnley game on Sunday, but hey life is far too much fun to take everything that seriously, so I for one welcome Virgin Media's initiative to give us all a free cone on Sunday.
Saints’ Main Club Sponsors are providing free ice-cream to supporters ahead of the match, at St Mary’s, to make opening day that little bit sweeter.
There will be five vans located around the outside of the stadium, serving from 11am up until kick-off.
The generous offer is the latest from Virgin Media to help make Southampton supporters’ matchday experience all the more enjoyable.
There were also be a host of other activities at St Mary's for fans to enjoy ahead of the opening game of the season, with Saints Brass on hand, a keepy-up challenge in a special panna cage, and Saints Foundation testing your knowledge with a special quiz for supporters.
A bit of good news for Saints supporters and yes it isn't Chairman Gao telling us his five year plan or his cultural revolution, but it is making things a little more palatable on Sunday although some would probably prefer that the club took out all the toilet seats, forgot to put loo rolls in the cubicles and spread mud over the concourses so they could have something to moan at.
It is understood that the offer is limited to one cone per person, although with the number expected to take up the offer expected to be large (Please see the Daily Echo's Readers Letter article on Monday for details) the ability of ice cream vendors to spot people coming up a 2nd 2rd or 4th time is questionable.
It should also be noted that the picture on the club website is not indicative of the free ice cream that will be available. It is hoped that club kit provider Under Armour will sponsor chocolate flakes and sauce, please refer back to the club website for details.

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.
