  1. José Miguel da Rocha Fonte

    The New Den, Millwall. January 16th, 2010.

    A late-late goal by Liam Trotter deprived Saints of a last minute victory. The equaliser in injury time coming only 30 seconds after Rickie Lambert had put us ahead, a bitter blow in our efforts to chase down a place in the play-offs after overcoming a 10 point deduction in our first season in league one. Another few points lost in the grind of this ugly division, an introduction to life at Saints for three debutants, Jon Otsemobor, Dan ...

  2. Top 4?

    It’s been a question on many Southampton fans lips for the past couple of weeks. After the mayhem and “meltdown” that the club encountered in the summer many fans and pundits would have settled for survival this season. Out went Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren to Liverpool, Luke Shaw to Manchester United and Callum Chambers to Arsenal. While individually many didn’t see each transfer as a surprise nobody predicted so many would leave.

  4. Fury

    A few days have passed now since the event, and I have mellowed since the fallout of Friday. This blog will not be deleted though as it should remain as a record of reaction to one of the most controversial events of this season.

    Nigel Adkins has been sacked, the man who helped us to back to back promotions, the man who gave me some of my best memories as a Saints fan has gone. Only 2 defeats in 12 games, laying 15th in the league. He has been sacked.

  5. Calculated Risk?

    Under the ownership of the estate of Markus Leibherr and leadership of Nicola Cortese Saints have certainly not been afraid to throw the pennies around. Signing Rickie Lambert for £1 million mere months after coming out of administration raised many eyebrows. Gazzumping clubs for Jack Cork on re-entry to the championship raised a similar reaction in many quarters.
