Arsenal Away EFL Cup – Quarter-Final Won 2 – 0

As November slips into December, it’s usually time for Southampton to bow out of the League Cup at the quarter final stage – they’ve done so for the last two seasons and seven times in total since progressing to the 1987 semis. Drawn away to Arsenal, the bookmakers thought this time would be no different, […]

Everton Home Won 1 – 0

Inevitably there were jeers as Ronald Koeman returned to St. Mary’s with Everton, but of course RK was responsible for jetting us off to Israel, Milan and Prague, plus Arnhem and that pokey little place in Denmark. I don’t see anyone to blame particularly for the divorce; the Koemans have a career plan that involves […]

Europa League Away Sparta Prague Lost 1 – 0

We knew what to expect from the team selection in far-off Prague: fans who had expended time and money (very willingly, it must be admitted) would have sent out a stronger XI, but Sparta were weakened by problems forced upon them by injury and suspension, and anyway the game between the sides at St. Mary’s […]

Liverpool Home Drew 0 – 0

Games against our Italian Europa League opponents had reminded me of Britain’s first mass exposure to Helenio Herrera’s catenaccio defence – when Inter took on Celtic in the 1967 European Cup final, and seemingly failed to advance out of their own half after taking a 7th minute lead. Little did I expect Saints ever to […]

Hull Away Lost 2 – 1

After Europa League excitement, Claude Puell reverted to most of his favourite starters for the game at Hull, land of the cream-coloured phone box, the sub-£3 pint and a team coming into the match with a string of seven league defeats behind them. The Saints line-up included changes on both sides of the defence, Bertrand […]

Europa League Home Inter Milan Won 2 – 1

Internazionale arrived at St. Mary’s without coach Frank De Boer, sacked two days earlier, but with no replacement in place, they weren’t quite ready for the notorious new manager bounce. That didn’t stop them taking a 33rd minute lead, the ball hit home by Icardi after some nice play down the right, a debatable clash […]

Chelsea Home Lost 2 – 0

Bertrand returned to face his old club, Chelsea, at St. Mary’s but no place in the Premier League starting line-up for Boufal and still no sign of Soares. Saints fell behind early on from an attack down Bertrand’s flank, but it was more a question of Davis failing to handle Hazard‘s break behind the full […]

Sunderland Home EFL Cup Won 1 – 0

Matches are coming along fast and furious now, and it will surely have crossed Monsieur Puel’s mind that the best result in the club’s opening EFL Cup game would have been a defeat. Crystal Palace’s selection policy made that result unlikely, but Claude, quite understandably really, made nine changes to his starting line up in […]
