Missing Mick Macey

Mick was well known for going missing at away matches. Final farewells were made to Mick as he made his final missing at Salisbury crematorium last Friday 9th March to Oh When the Saints Go Marching In. He will be missed.

Newcatle Away lost 3 – 0 to much fog on the Tyne for Saints

You kind of knew things might go wrong at Newcastle when a team that excluded Romeu was revealed: we rarely play better without the Spaniard, and surely his qualities would have been ideal for this particular fixture? Then the selected XI took to the pitch wearing an unusual combination of shirt, shorts and socks that […]

Stoke Home Drew 0 – 0

Piles of snow around the pitch belied the fact that we’d moved into the meteorological spring in time for the visit of Stoke, and both sides were hoping to rejuvenate a disappointing season – for Saints, that meant a surprise start for the youthful Sims, although he has proved most effective as an impact substitute […]

Burnley Away Drew 1 – 1

Romeu for Højbjerg was the only team change at Burnley, but we now had Ward-Prowse operating on the left and Tadić in centre midfield – maybe they’d done that at West Brom as well, but it was more obvious at Turf Moor. Either way, it might have paid off but for Pope saving from Tadić […]

West Brom Away FA Cup 5th Round

BBC TV kindly informed us that the 5th round cup tie at West Brom was a repeat of the 1968 competition which WBA eventually won. Thank you for that, but for Southampton a more relevant incarnation of the same fixture came a mere 42 years ago, prior to our own final triumph. This time round, both […]

Liverpool Home Lost 0 – 2

Rather late in the season Southampton have come up with something of a settled side with Højbjerg for Boufal the only change to the line-up to face Liverpool, complete with the returning Van Dijk (amongst several other apostates). That means no place for Yoshida, with the manager maybe sharing the view that the defender always […]

West Brom Away Won 2 – 3

The team sent out to face West Brom was much more like the one that should have faced Brighton, with Lemina, Boufal and Carrillo all starting: maybe Højbjerg could reasonably feel hard done by to have lost his place, but they can’t all play. This was designated Cyrille Regis Day at The Hawthorns to celebrate […]

Brighton Home Drew 1 – 1

You have to assume that a professional coach who is an ex-international player should know more about the game than a bunch of blokes in a pub, but there was not inconsiderable surprise amongst my peers at Mauricio Pellegrino’s timid selection to face Brighton at home. It also asked questions about the club’s recent forays […]

Watford Home FA Cup 4th Round Won 1 – 0

By being drawn against each other, struggling Premier League teams Southampton and Watford avoided any 4th round banana skins in the Cup, but only one could progress. I suspect that Saints wanted success more than our visitors whose web site states they “only just about had enough fit senior players to fill the bench.” Quite […]
