According to the Telegraph we are record breakers - Come on you reds!!!

 

An attendance of 73,476 was not only the highest at any football game across Britain this weekend but even surpassed the numbers who watched the equivalent of the FA Cup final last season in Spain, Italy and Holland. With almost a quarter of Southampton’s entire population estimated to have been at Wembley, it was also an occasion that underlined the potential turning of the tide along the Hampshire coast.

Yeah, but many of us who were at Wembley don't live in Southampton - there were plenty of Saints fans passing through Victoria heading off to their homes - but maybe as we're plastic fans they don't count us ?

And through Paddington. Our train up from Swindon had a good number of Saints on there.

Many a tractor travelling up from Devon/Cornwall and a lot of converted Janners carrying their pitchforks with the red and white colours tied thereon......The pitchforks were for use against any stray Pompey supporters....

As I said in an earlier post 'These journo's really do use poetic licenceto the full '. There were hundreds of us from the Midlands area (NOT PLASTICS - just supporters) and ask Yorkie how many came down from the North East? Incidentally 'How much is a quarter of the population of Southampton?' Dibden Purlieu Saint don't live there but he WAS at Wembley!As were many others.Just because we don't live in 'Swampton' for whatever reason don't mean we ain't Saints. COYR
