I would too, but even the most optimistic, happiest of happy clappers wouldn't expect it. No harm in wishing.

TO GET A RESULT - THE CROWD MUST PLAY THEIR PART TONIGHT.

THE PLAYERS CAN CONTROL THE GAME - GET IN ARSENAL'S FACES AND GET THE GOALS.

Last Season we could and should have Won. With Wanyama and Boruc on the Team Sheet - we give ouselves the best possible chance to WIN against Arsenal. It will be tough - but we can do this.

WE ARE THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

A League Of Their Own

The gunner stands by his Arsenal,
A winter chill is in the air.
Liverpool's reds stay in their beds,
Chewing Toffees with ne'er a care.
A Blue Moon is over Old Trafford,
The red dawn still so far away.
Down the Lane Cockerels are silent,
For the new year they want to stay.
Palace now have an old stoker,
Said Pulis up now if you can.
West Ham's claret is gone flat,
Sam's ideas not going to plan.
Down in Wales the Swans are swimming,
They look serene as they float by.
Alas the Bluebirds are flightless,
Now that Tan tries to rid of Mackay.
West Brom still look for a rudder,
Whilst Sunderland bring up the rear.
Magpies and Canaries still sing,
And Saints are showing no fear.
At the Bridge the blues are handy,
Bruce's Tigers and Stoke are mid-stream.
But Fulham and Villa's wish list,
To win the league is just a dream.
Your club may have bought a turkey,
A centre forward who can't score.
But here is the rub, it's your club,
And like Twist you'll go back for more.

why do we have to have half-time?
we were doing fine without going off for 15 minutes.
Arsenal are bound to send out their team revitalised and with fresh thoughts.
we will just have to marmalise them all over again.

No they didn't but the pitch was still like a damp billiard table, incredible work by the ground staff in the circumstances, the Cherrys were wallowing in a mud pit, they had the same weather as us. We would not have had such a good game if the surface hadn't been so good.
