Interesting subplot regarding Owen and Pochettino.

I've always maintained that cheating of all forms is wrong - period! However, once Maradona had scored the 'hand of God' goal and claimed it was 'the head of Maradona', gaining an advantage against Argentina has, IMO, always been fair game.

That doesn't extend to teams managed by Argentinians, though.

COYR! We can get this 10th spot and reward those who placed bets on it back in August.

MOTD's Laurence Herdman at St Mary's StadiumSouthampton v Stoke (1600 BST)

"A celebratory atmosphere is likely at St Mary's, but it will be tempered by uncertainty over the future of executive chairman Nicola Cortese. The Italian is out of contract in the summer and wants clarity from owners, the Liebherr Trust, on his vision to take the club to the next level.

"Curiously, Stoke will finish the season with their lowest-ever Premier League points tally although they could end it in their highest-ever position. A win will take the club to 44 points which compares with the 45, 46, 47, and 45 point totals earned in previous Premier League seasons - although you have to go back to 1980 for City's last win at Southampton."

I agree, but we can argue the merits of NA vs MP forever. We need a few players for next year so that we can be more solid at the back and clinical upfront. If we can see that s can MP.

I look forward to seeing your inferiority complex on full display next season as you follow the team minibus to cowsheds up and down this land. No doubt you will somehow believe that you are on some sort of holy quest when the reality is just that you are playing in League 2 and you are going to stay there for quite some time to come.

I look forward to seeing your inferiority complex on full display next season as you follow the team minibus to cowsheds up and down this land. No doubt you will somehow believe that you are on some sort of holy quest when the reality is just that you are playing in League 2 and you are going to stay there for quite some time to come.

always remember this Skate - everything you received from Saints fans during your latest administration was simply payback for all the bile and vitriol you threw our way when we had financial troubles. What a difference infrastructure makes.

That'll do.

Would have preferred a win to end the season on a high, but playing against a club like Stoke who go one up and then stick very player behind the ball you got to really push hard.

Still, I'm not complaining - a rollercoaster of a season over. An interesting summer ahead.
Well dones lads for getting the points that mattered.
And I'm glad Rickie was able to put another one in today.

I shall leave this thread alone now for the inevitable whining from Gollum and his friend down the road about how mediocre we are for only drawing etc etc etc (ad infinitum until boredom kills you)
I have but one message for you Skates:

We're in the Premier League, one of the original teams. Keep your history, we'll have the future thanks.

Perhaps if Poch hadn't decided to play without a keeper todaythe defence would have been better

Good post and just to add that we may well have won had it not been for the heroics of their GK who also got lucky!

The next worry is Wednesday when they announce the new Season Ticket details, a hike is inevitable, how much could be critical.

Well i enjoyed the season

Think we have shown we have a great core of a team

Ill take 14th after the start but shame in the last few matches we havent put a few more away

We have to accept though that we are not a hugely attacking team

We tried that at the start and got hamerred

Now we are difficult to beat and thats a great starting block

I think we could finish in top 8 next season

We need to break teams down better at st marys though

So thanks lads have a good summer

And an easier start next year please

Are you sure you don't want to clear off Poch..... if you are not sure then just to remind you there was no win from the last SIX games..... safety...... but if we are to aim higher then the manager has to make a huge improvement. Someone described him as Cortese's poodle, lets hope the poodle does not need too much obedience training. Stoke are a pile of sh1te and we HAVE to start beating cr@p like them, sunderland etc etc etc.....

Do you offer inspirational business courses Mr Business-Guru? If so, pease strike me from your emailing list.

Yours sincerely,

BB

Borucs absense was a mystery, but someone said that KD was playing his last game for us, if that is so he deserved to play the game. May not be true as no source was quoted.

We will win by at least two clear two goals. I was correct about the previous two games and will be about this one! The players know that new faces will be brought in this summer and will want to perform well. Rickie to score me thinks. Up the Saints!

Yep, you called that one perfectly, as ever. Well done!

Well I reckon it's now time for a clear out & a reinforcing of the first team.
New players are needed but hey you all go up to watch them who do you think is going or should go & who/where do we need to buy?
Sensible lists please?

Sorry LH but you is quoting the bleedin obvious! We need a CB with pace, a goal finisher and possibly 9 others to support them, at least 15 pieces of deadwood to leave I don't think we will get much for any of them..

The player in question is a very good one Victor Wanyyama but Ach Aye will tell you he is going nowhere.
