    Default Vitesse Build Up & Match Thread

    As the title say, bit surprised…

    Go with the strongest team to help gel for Newcastle. Biggest question is will it be winter like today or will summer return??!!

    Same starting XI as the Feyenoord game I reckon.

    Under 4k tickets left so should be a cracker and any lead would be great to take over there.

    8.05 KO and on BT Sport for anyone not going.

    I and 3 other Saints-supporting family members are at the Test at Edgbaston next Thursday. Can anyone recommend a pub in Birmingham that will be showing the Saints game please?

    My first evening game at SMS in a decade or more and my first European game. Feels oddly emotional. Unless we do a repeat Steaua performance. Dead excited. Would love to see the same team as last night's.

    Wonder if we might see Jrod or Juanmi start, unlike in the Feyenoord game.

    It's a shame we can't create a special European night by having a sea of red and white with loads of flags in view.

    I don't think JRod will start though so replace with Davis.

    Anybody thinking of using The Channel Crossing had better plan to arrive early.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-33662489

    Seems to be an ongoing daily headache whether it be Migrants or Striking Froggies or Power Cuts.

    Good Luck.

    The home leg of Saints’ UEFA Europa League third qualifying round clash with Vitesse will be broadcast live on BT Sport.


    The kick-off time for the game, which takes place at St Mary’s on Thursday 30th July, has now been confirmed for 8.05pm BST. Coverage begins on BT Sport 1 at 7.45pm BST.


    The second leg, played a week later at Vitesse’s GelreDome stadium, will kick off at 8pm local time (7pm BST). Any potential television coverage has yet to be confirmed.

    Sounds like it's going to sell out which is good. Should be a quality atmosphere as an evening game.

    Not sure we'll risk JRod from the start for this one.

    Aside from Targett I think that's a really strong lineup. Wouldn't surprise me if Rodriguez didn't start though. No need for a strong team to face Espanyol a few days later.

    Saints in Europe. How mad would that sound back in the late 2000s?

    This team for me and tbf Target is coming on well I have no worries him playing I can't remember him really having a bad game last season?

    Not very, we were only 6 years removed from the previous occurrence even then.

    So when Gregory Vignal was our biggest signing and we were happy for a last minute equaliser at S****horpe, it was perfectly rational to think we would be in the Europa League a few years later? Doubt it.

    Anyone remember Vignals bullsh*t sending off V Wolves? Still annoys me now.

    Was saying much the same to my 15 yr old son, on way back from St Mary's yesterday after buying him his new home shirt

    When we were in administration and even later when Cortese came out and said that despite us starting the season on minus 10 points, that we'd be back in the premier league in 5 years, that in 2015 we'd have been in premier league again for 3 seasons, just about to start 4th and would also be in in Europa league, with a Wembley win along the way.

    What an incredible journey from Tuesday nights in Hartlepool to Thursday nights in Arnhem, I've loved it all.

    Was that the spitting incident that never was, whilst he was taking a throw in? That was weird, almost as if the ref was hallucinating. Nobody else saw anything even on the replays.

    Totally agree with the above. It has been an incredible journey and i have loved every minute of it. Being a Saints fan is just so completely different. 40 plus years i have followed Saints and i have loved the journey.

    Start Tadic, Juanmi and mane, jrod on bench. Need to really go for them at home. 4 good goal threats is more than we normally have.

    But laughing aside, if he is being as big a w@nker as he has been in the past, does anyone have any inkling of his motivation? Or is it just that he's a real saddo with a fixation about foam hands?

    Doesn't it sort of defeat the point if you have someone on ignore and then post about them all the time?

    Just curious, Hypo. Are you a tag team? I've noticed your support for him before... I don't post about him all the time sweetheart, only when I suspect he is taking the ****. He may be bullying, I suspect he is. You're OK with that then, or can you confirm he isn't? I can always go and check, you know?

    Not bad. Bring on J Rod (for Davis?) to turn the screw a bit..

    Looking on the ticket website this morning this game is now virtually sold out with just single tickets left in most blocks with the exception of the family centre which still has quite a lot of availability, I guess it is a late kick off and many are away on summer holidays. If you want to get a few tickets together will need to buy today in the chapel or get Saints Bar hospitality for £30 which is a good deal for a padded seat on half way line.

    I read in The Pink at the weekend that Vitesse have 4 players on loan from Chelsea but not all are expected to feature with the oldest one being England U20 captain Lewis Baker, I'm sure if he does play Targett and Reed will know all about him. It sounds like Vitesse have lost a couple of their better players and haven't replaced them so far, will be interesting to hear Vitesse fans thoughts on that. They could be thinking the same about us and the loss of our record breaking back 5 though with Alderweireld, Clyne gone and Forster and Bertrand unavailable.
