Breaking News ! Season Ticket Spotted In Chandlers Ford
Thursday, 19th Aug 2021 12:46
Usually in mid July Saints supporters are out in force waiting for the first sighting of the Lesser Striped Saints Season Ticket, but this year due to interminable reasons, even though it is mid August few have been spotted so far, but there is some breaking news.
With the opening fixture already passed and the first home game of the season due in only 3 days time, most Saints supporters would at this moment in time be caressing their season tickets, putting pictures of them up on social media and in some cases holding an exhibition of season tickets throughout the ages in their local village hall.
But this year so far the lesser spotted red & white striped season ticket is nowhere to be seen, Saints ST Spotters have been out in force, both in hallways and driveways throughout the area and also hiding in bushes and looking for the man with the sack who will signal the season has started.
Rumours about why the Season Tickets have not appeared yet abound, Covid 19, problems with migrating from China, even that SFC should never have taken the cheapest quote from that company in Afghanistan.
Whatever the reason they just haven't appeared yet.
But wait Breaking News ! One has been spotted in Chandlers Ford and a picture has been posted, a collective sigh of relief can now be uttered in the SO postcodes, binoculars can be put down and flasks of tea and ham sandwiches consumed, the first Season Ticket of the season has arrived and it is sure to be followed by a whole flock of them, after all season tickets are like buses, you wait hours for one and then a dozen come at once.
Stop Press ! Just when you thought it could not get any better rumours are emerging, albeit ones that have not yet been substantiated that someone has answered the phone in the ticket office.

When Saturday Comes #7 by wessex_exile
Well that didn’t go as planned at all – after a stirring battling performance full of grit, character and togetherness with the small band of travelling supporters at Barrow, the U’s then finally returned back to the JobServe and completely failed to turn up against bogey side Crawley. They weren’t the only ones either, Hayden Mullins was absent as well, and we have since learned he has Covid-19 and will also miss tomorrow’s game at Swindon too – I know we all wish Hayden a speedy recovery. Fortunately, I won’t be missing the match, with tickets arriving last weekend – first live game for best part of 18 months, and I can’t bloody wait!

After over a month of absence, the U’s finally make a welcome return to the JobServe for a home league fixture. Sutton seem to have quickly got over their Covid-19/ injury crisis/ international call-up woes, fielding a team the following Tuesday that was strong enough to push Cardiff City hard in a narrow 3-2 defeat to the Championship side. But enough of that, I haven’t seen the outcome of the EFL investigation, but I don’t doubt the decision has either already been or will be rubber-stamped. Gamesmanship – maybe, but I hope at least the EFL are now a bit more alert to the fact that some might think they can treat them like chumps when it suits their purpose? Still – it’s great to be back home isn’t it!

“Well, I can tell u my son was stood nearer the back of the Holker Street end and although he couldn't see who was responsible, he was disgusted and was very clear in telling me that the 'N' word was used by someone stood directly behind the goal nearer the front. I'm sick of hearing this, no one but the player being abused heard anything so maybe he was mistaken crap. This shite still exists despite everything that the authorities try to do because unfortunately there are still racists in every, city, town, village and hamlet in this country. [SwearFilter] scum of the earth.”

I start with an apology for the no-show last weekend, but for all the right reasons. My nephew and his fiancé finally managed to tie the knot on Friday, at the fifth time of asking (previous four attempts falling foul of covid restrictions unfortunately). It was a fantastic afternoon and evening over in Essex, but meant it just wasn’t possible to get a blog produced. A significant proportion of the wedding party were U’s supporters, including the groom, but any thought of live-streaming the Rochdale game at the evening celebration might have resulted in the fastest divorce on record, so we contented ourselves with surreptitious glances at the BBC Sports updates – and what an own goal it was! Different circumstances, but I was (painfully) reminded of Aidan and Kevin’s howler at Blackburn – golden rule, never, ever pass the ball directly towards your own goal.

The goalless U’s have eventually got that monkey off their backs, with the Frank and Freddie show combining to win a somewhat dubious penalty, in the 5th minute of injury time, allowing Freddie to get his new goal account at the U’s off and running (all in all he now has 37 goals, five of them penalties). It was tight though, and on another day the goalkeeper would have got a hand to it, but they all count, whether it’s a 25 yard peach or one off the arse. Everyone has rightly said that without doubt Mansfield were the best side we’ve faced so far – I’ll go so far as to say they’ll probably be one of the best sides we face all season. Though it wasn’t comfortable viewing at the time, some of their passing and movement, particularly on the break, was breath-taking at times. But enough of the love-in, however good they were, the U’s stood up to them, kept them out for the most part, and eventually got the point we deserved.
