Crystal Palace Away Won 0 – 1

A change at the helm for Crystal Palace before Southampton’s visit, with Frank De Boer’s dismissal relieving Les Reed of one (fewest games) of his Premier League short service records, but not the other (elapsed time). The home team’s fortunes didn’t change with Uncle Roy now in charge as they fell behind in the 7th […]

Watford Home Lost 0 – 2

The early season break promised a change in fortunes for Southampton’s misfiring attacking options as our players scored more goals on international duty than the club has managed from open play in the first four games of the season. One scorer was Lemina, but he was relegated to the bench, presumably because he played two […]

Huddersfield Away Drew 0 – 0

Following a midweek cup defeat, Saints returned to their starters from the last league game for their first away trip – to Huddersfield. After a cagey opening from both sides, the visitors had the first opportunity but Redmond shot wide from a great position after being set up by Davis. That, though, was as good as […]

Wolves Home Carabao Cup Lost 0 – 2

There was every chance that Snr. Pellegrino would go the whole hog with eleven changes to his starting line up as Saints prepared to meet Wolves in what is now the Carabao Cup.

West Ham Home Won 3 – 2

Just a week into the new season and the club is under new ownership, or new majority ownership at least. Some sources have been estimating Ms. Liebherr’s wealth at a low sounding £300m, but even at a more likely $3.3bn reported elsewhere, it’s not the mega-bucks needed to compete at the top echelon of the […]

London Saints CC V Roadrunners CC – Sun Aug 6th – Houghton Regis, Beds

Roadrunners 274 – 7 (Nanton 2 – 42) London Saints 78 (Grant 19, Wathan 15) With Pearce Taxi’s selfishly deciding to go on holiday on the weekend when their services are required, the train element of the LSCC XI (well 12 after some miscommunication) had to fork out £20 to get a taxi from Leighton […]
