The Long, Long Season Review

This is usually the time to look forward to a new season rather than back, and the forthcoming one will be a year without stripes: I get the impression that our marketing people would prefer things that way; we only wore stripes at St. Mary’s, Norwich and Portsmouth so it was our ‘third’ away kit.

Brighton Home Drew 1 – 1

Another broadcast provider for our penultimate home game, with SFC funding season ticket holders’ access to BT’s coverage.

Manchester United Away Drew 2 – 2

Yet another first for the visit to Manchester United: watching Saints ‘live’ in the pub. No crowd noises, but no commentary either – not necessarily a bad thing, although it did appear Mattie had been wheeled out for what I’m sure was totally unbiased expert analysis.
