End of Season Review

Thank goodness that’s over!  A season that began with a whimper (defeat to a poor Crystal Palace team, League Cup exit to Brentford and second half capitulation to Spurs) went out even more timidly (0-3 to West Ham, admittedly a side who can be pleased with their 2020/21 efforts). In between we had some memorable […]

West Ham Away Lost 3 – 0

Sky TV covered the final game, at West Ham, but on a non-sports channel, which came as a shock for those of us minimising our payments to Murdoch’s evil empire. Still a solution available: lock down all media contacts for 20 hours and tune into the re-run at noon on Monday. Was it worth it? […]

Leeds Home Lost 0 – 2

Still no Bednarek as Saints faced Leeds, but on the other hand there were 8,000 season ticket holders at St. Mary’s to witness the occasion – in all likelihood the first live football in over a year for many. Mask wearing seemed to be better observed than at many grounds, a discipline not tested by […]

Fulham Home Won 3 – 1

We live in peculiar times, where a Saturday 3 p.m. kick off becomes inconvenient – there’s live sport to be watched somewhere, even under lockdown restrictions if you look hard enough. I still managed to access Southampton v. Fulham, but the repeat performance on Sky, starting at 22:30 and with no build up or half […]

Crystal Palace Home Won 3 – 1

Minamino was ineligible to play at Liverpool – no great loss, I’d say, but he does make us less symmetrical and maybe a bit more difficult to play against, so he was back to face Crystal Palace. I doubt either he or another returnee, Ings, had touched the ball by the time Palace won a […]

Liverpool Away Lost 2 – 0

Still no Bertrand to face Liverpool, but a recall for Forster: so much for my theory that FF only plays when Bertrand does… and so much for making McCarthy Man of the Match last time out. Walcott was back up front, and although he didn’t make much of an impact, we need someone experienced in […]

Leicester Home Drew 1 – 1

Still no Bertrand to face Leicester in the League, and according to my theory at least, that’s what leads to McCarthy continuing in goal. In front of him, Stephens took over as emergency left back while Diallo missed out, along with the injured Ings. That line-up made a bright opening with Walker-Peters finishing well, although […]

Spurs Away Lost 2 – 1

Saints went to Tottenham after an eventful few days for the home club. Of course the only surprising thing about Jose Mourinho’s departure was that it took so long – this was the organisation that chose to sack Mauricio Pochettino after he took them to a European Cup Final. It would seem that they had […]

FA Cup Semi Final Wembley Leicester Lost 1 – 0

More by reasons of necessity than superstition, many of us did without a haircut whilst Saints were still in the 2021 F.A. Cup – was it our barbers’ or hairdressers’ fault that it all went wrong in the semi final? It may have been superstition rather than good taste that sent the team out in […]

West Bromwich Away Lost 3 – 0

West Brom manager Allardyce described his team’s game with Saints as “must win.” I don’t like that way of thinking, as what do you do if you don’t win? Just give up? Still, Big Sam’s words had the desired effect on Albion as they were far more “up” for the contest than the visitors, who […]
