  1. Well, I didn't think Liverpool team looked that bad but hopefully you're right , 3-0 to Saints.
  2. No brainer, get him on a free, we know all about him, he loves Southampton, no real risk unlike one or two of our signings in the past, wouldn't think he will want silly money . 2 year contract at the most though and he finishes his career where he started. His pace still unsettles opposition defence even if his final ball can be a bit iffy at times. I imagine he would also be a great asset in the changing room giving young lads advice , he seems the type.
  3. You could be right, I'm still reminiscing from 1976
  4. Hopefully 10 years from now we will have a thread on here reminiscing about the day we beat Man City at Wembley to win the FA Cup, what were we doing that day, where did we watch it with all the restrictions, ........or am I getting carried away a bit ?
  5. That's what we need more of, positivity πŸ™„πŸ˜
  6. Yeah, were already relegated, Ralphs got to go and the whole team is shit. Start at page 8. πŸ™„πŸ˜€
  7. Blimey, starting early today giving him grief.
  8. Yep, I've already apologies for the title and losing a year of my life !!!
  9. We arrived at our local station at 8am. Normally on a Sunday you'd be lucky if there was one person waiting at that time. Thought we'd catch the early train. There must have been 500 people on the platform decked out in red and white. By the time we got to Basingstoke there wasn't even standing room and this was the early train !!! Knew then it was going to be a memorable day.
  10. Oops, apologies for getting it wrong in the title. Seems I have lost a year of my life then. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  11. Wonder if our Chinese owner Mr Gao will be at Wembley if\when we reach the cup final with his instamatic.πŸ™„
  12. Indeed , an insignificant trophy but after the previous few years of relegation , administration, it was the glimpse of light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
  13. What a great day out at Wembley. 44,000 painting Wembley red and white. Marcus, (RIP,) taking photos of us fans. Saints picking up a trophy at Wembley. Great memories. Hopefully to be repeated next month, just not so many of us fans there !!
  14. Well if it had been a Saturday lunch time Ko I could maybe have delayed driving off on my holiday to Cornwall for a few hours (self contained covid bubble in self contained accomodation as per the rules I should add) but persuading my beloved to wait until 8pm on Sunday evening before driving off could be difficult. No Bt sport in holiday accomodation unfortunately πŸ™Then again, if we'd been allowed tickets for Wembley that could have been a bigger problem. Wembley or Cornwall πŸ™„ Either way, hopefully I can spend a holiday week celebrating, pissed hangovers, no problem .πŸ˜€
  15. Quite like the idea of us being the underdogs in the draw.
  16. As long as he produces one moment of magic, hits the winner that gets us to Wembley, that'll do for me 😁
  17. Dare I say they were actually missing Hojbjerg tonight sitting in front of their defence. Was enjoyable to watch though.
  18. Should be said Dave Merrington who was youth team coach thankfully did take the rumours seriously after over hearing some of the lads talking and after reporting his worries to senior club officials I believe Higgins was gone within 2 weeks.
  19. Well, as it was 75 years ago I guess you could be forgiven. πŸ‘ Your 1946 looks like it holds the record for the earliest memories of the Dell on this thread then and I thought my 1964 visit made me an old timer. Lol
  20. I've been a long time lurker on here but the above post from Lets B Avenue has brought me out of my slumber. Yes, it was also my first game as a 10 year old kid. Friends of the family had a pair of season tickets for the Upper West Stand center block. Still got the programme. (Am I right in thinking that it is still the only Saints league game where 2 players have scored a hat trick in the same game ?? ) 35 years of attending matches at the Dell and it was the only time I sat in the upper stands with the best view I ever had. 6 goals !! I thought it would be like that every game. I was in
