    Why yes! Actually, judging by my team those aren't footballers. You can tell by the knees.. Particularly with occasionally playing on 3/4G pitches.

    Since I've got no aways it'll be the local pub for me. As it's in PO10 I'll get a little bit of the real experience. Will it be acceptable to jump up when we score, I wonder? Doubt if I'll break the rules on here about shirt wearing..

    But Sue in the 70’s the pitches were pure mud no little bits of plastic in them just Mother Nature’s miraculous curing elements.

    Brave man if your prepared to eat food at Fratton. I imagine the shear amount of airborne bacteria would make eating sarnies an immediate case of Gastroenteritis..

    You will absolutely 100% get a ticket with 8. Me on the other hand only has 2 on file (go with work quite a bit) so Iíve got no chance. So on that note, if you qualify and youíre not going....Iím willing to make a very generous offer

    Does anyone know how many st holders fall into these categories? I’m hoping the fact it’s midweek and probably not the best atmosphere for younger fans that a few may be put off.

    Any pubs in London that are likely to be Saints heavy?

    How can you not feel that strongly? Itís the first game against them in 7 years and we havenít won at theirs since 84 (if you donít count Alan Knightís testimonial).

    This game is everything.

    Looks like it won't be reaching season ticket holders then seeing as they've not even released a date for that criteria yet, so back to the question of which pub in Southampton will be the best with a big screen?

    Both Fratton and The Dell as I recall. Our school all weather hockey pitch was red dirt, essentially. So my point stands!

    I think already mentioned but the London Road Brewhouse is very decent. Also worth noting they are putting the game on at the stadium should you wish to go there: https://www.southamptonfc.com/news/2...gs-at-st-marys

    Did notice that! Not sure a seated atmosphere within the stadium will provide the best atmosphere though. Will have a look at the other one you mentioned, thanks!

    It's the land that time forgot. Every time I have the misfortune to go down there it just confirms every feeling I had when I was younger.

    But each to their own.

    A small part of me does think it would be funny if the away end was half empty and we put out the reserves. I know it wont happen but nothing would hurt more than if we just weren't actually bothered about them any more.

    No it wouldn’t. They would take the **** for years if we couldn’t sell 2000 tickets to a derby.

    That is a good shout, we are going to drink in the Wagon Works outside the station 1st, there is a another train 15mins later that gets to fratton 19.30, may even jump on that one. Less chance of getting bottled up by plod.

    Really interested to see how they’re going to organise the trains. Fratton Station is a dump at the best of times. They’ve said they’ll be no special trains so I can’t see them holding all the commuters up to make us all arrive together.

    This all smacks of Pompey refusing to pay the huge policing bill that a bubble etc will cost.... so we'll get a billy basic version...

    12 - 15 mins walk from the station I think, but yes the 18.25 is probably the one we shall get.

    The trains are always rammed around that time anyway, sounds like it’s gonna be a right mess.

    Probably best to book some time off work and spend the afternoon on the island. I believe they have a beach, a pier and funfair, an aquarium and some old boats. That should kill a few hours and then a leisurely stroll to the match. Simple, what could go wrong?

    I miss the old days where a big cup game would see early morning queues stretching out of the Dell car park down Milton Road, all added to the excitement.

    My preferred option, if the place weren't full of thieving scrotes, is to cycle down the Eastern Road cycle path, red and white scarf flapping in the breeze... Not sure where I'd lock me bike though.

    Game against the Skates at ours in 96 i queued in the freezing bloody cold, by the time we got our tickets i couldn't feel my feet, but it didn't matter as we got them in the Archers so was worth the pain.

    Surprised we could pick our seats for this, thought it would just be get what you’re given. Anyway, ticket purchased. Block behind the goal nearly sold out already.

    That just made me think about the queues for home league games when the capacity was 15,500, stood on the pavement half way down the Milton Road stand for over an hour, and a steward coming along counting folks, then getting to half a dozen folks behind you and then saying "I can't guarantee you will get a ticket"!!!

    No one will stand in their allocated seats though, just going to be a case of pilling in when you get there as it has been every other time.

    True. I hope so anyway as there’s about 10 of us all eligible to buy tickets at different times.
