    It'd probably have been even shorter lived if Wright had had some decent trainers on lol

    So Saints hold about 19/20 records. Is that a record?

    The first club to spell out their Twitter hashtag using different coloured seats in the stadium?

    Only top flight team in the modern era to have played 3 brothers together (apparently Boro played 3 in 1920, Jacky, William and George Carr).

    That's the Wallace brothers BTW (for younger fans who read this).

    Not a record (unless you’re talking just Premier League) but apparently SMS is the second ‘lowest’ ground in the country at about 1metre above sea level. Grimsby is the lowest.

    St Mary's was the first totally flat pitch (at least) in the premier league!

    So when the Greenland glacier slides into the ocean Saints will have to ground share at Krap Nottarf?

    Are we the only club to have installed a full under-soil heating system, presumably to meet some sort of UEFA stipulation, and then have never connected/commissioned it? I think I'm right in saying that we've never had a game frozen/snowed off at SMS? Because we are a) so close to the Itchen and b) at an altitude of <1m.

    We had a match postponed while in League One against Huddersfield at St Mary's, but it was generally thought that it was for other reasons, as stated we have undersoil heating and had played matches in worse conditions prior. We then beat them 5-0 in March, so worked.

    First ground in England to have permanent floodlights and first official floodlit game - a Football Combination match against Spurs on 1st October 1951.

    Only team to have a player as the top scorer in the top flight and still get relegated. Channon 21 goals season 1973/74

    Surely The Dell had the shallowest goal nets and wonkiest stand in British football?

    I think the Milton Road end was about 7 seats deep at one end and about 50 at the other.

    Oof, that brings back a bad football memory.

    The 1922–23 "Even Season" was unique – 14 wins, 14 draws and 14 defeats for 42 points - An average of one point per game. Goals for and goals against were also equal, and the team finished in mid-table.

    Just read that the Begovic goal is also the longest distance record holder:

    ‘His goal - which was aided by the wind - was measured at 91.9m (301ft 6in).‘

    So that’s the ‘goal conceded from the furthest distance’ record.
