In the studio when we played Southampton didn't expect us to be anywhere near we are. I totally agree and this season has been fantastic. We are six points clear of seventh place so anything is possible. If we go up probably best achievement since UEFA Cup as no money. If we dont club will make a fortune on Mings and Bishop plus reinvest on new players next season.
One of the guys at my work got it spot on with our club. Most clubs fans know roughly where there teams final position be and realistic expectations. He said the fans our club must be on a constant rollercoaster. Brilliant one week and can be rubbish the next. He supports Wedneday and says the only club they can never predict result against. Interesting view.
Gulf between the championship and Premier league is closing fast. Not just this weekend but the last two seasons. The top five or six spend big money but the rest on a equal playing field. Starting to look good for promoted teams.
Flicking through the tv channels last night and noticed they have celebrity big brother on. Never really seen it but got some bizarre people in there. Didn't know they had kicked out Ken Morley for being racist. Calling Alexander O Neal the N word.
I cant remember past time we played two games on national tv in a week. Even under Keane and Burley did we get high profile coverage. Bent and Bramble being our last two sought after youngsters in the past and now Bishop and Mings.
Going to be a stupid question but ask it anyway. Play local football and one of the guys really honest about his depression. When playing a game couldn't concentrate etc. Some of the team said take some time off whilst a few us said to be good around others. Talk things through. Interesting to see people who can't handle the situation whilst others sympathetic. Frank Bruno quite a high profile case recently. Wonder how often it happens in professional teams.
Yes you are Southampton as you would not be saying it. Their midfielder goal scorer today going on about there last victory here. Times change and we have the chance of progressing into the next round. He comes across as really arrogant.
Football programmes are out of control. Ive got over a thousand or so in the loft. Keep collecting too and if i see the right one buy it. The fashion sense in them has changed so much when you read the old ones.
