Saints Issue Kit Update Statement
Saturday, 3rd Aug 2019 10:59
When is a statement not a statement ? when its from Southampton FC who have issued the most unhelpful statement in history regarding the new kit.
Saints have just issued a club statement regarding the non appearance of the replica kit in the stores over the past month or so, some Saints fans have been treating this as a disaster tat should be debated in Parliament, although they do have a point about the lack of information given about the situation.
So the emergence of a statement on the club website about the situation initially appeared to be very welcome, however apart from an apology the statement itself tells the supporters absolutely zero other than the club will make another statement sometime next week.
Whether that statement will be built up with a countdown to its issue and perhaps have a funny video alongside it is unknown at present, however in the interests of keeping you up to date we have published the statement below.
"Southampton Football Club would like to apologise to our supporters for the delay in the release of the 2019/20 kit.
We understand your frustration and we’re doing everything in our power to make the kits available to purchase as quickly as possible.
We will give a full update to fans during the week commencing Monday 5th August."
So there you have it, clearly there is going to be a big development in the next few days, so many will not be able to sleep with excitement and anticipation.

Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 23/3/02 by wessex_exile
Ahead of another vital match in our bid for promotion back to League 1, this time at t’other St James’ Park in Devon, we return to our previous spell at that level, and dip again into one of the odder football rivalries (given that over 100 miles separates us from them).
Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
