    Went to the game and Luke Shaw came over at the end and handed my son his shirt. We had our Saints flag and wore our Saints shirts which he spotted during the warm up. Absolutely first class. We then went to the team hotel and met the players. Luke signed the shirt for him and Adam and Rickie signed his Saints shirt. I congratulated Rickie on his move and wished him the best. I said to both Adam and Luke that whatever happens, I wish them all the best. They seemed like they were already gone to be honest.
    As we left Ox was coming back from the hospital. Fair play to him, he let me snap a photo with my kids. I asked him if he was okay and he said, very unconvincingly "I hope so". He was limping but not on crutches. Didn't look good for him though,
    We have met quite a few Saints fans and it's been a load of fun. It seems everyone hates Spurs, not just us and Arsenal. There were 3 Saints flags in the stadium, more than any other club.

    Well done. Good for you and I mean it.
    Did they look sheepish when you wished them good luck?
    Sheepish is a great description that I couldn't think of when I wrote my post. Luke and Adam both almost acted a little embarrassed, but sheepish really nails it. Luke was walking throught the hotel lobby talking with Rooney. Perhaps I could get the DE to write one of their exclusives that Luke considers himself part of the Manure group already.
    I asked Adam if he thought the new board were committed and he just said "Yeah I think so". Not very convincing from the captain, but to be fair it was just a quick question as he stopped to sign an autograph.
    One of my kids has a Gerrard England shirt - he kept walking and wouldn't sign it, although he was the last one getting on the bus."

Ex-Saint suffers World Cup injury scare

Ex-Saint suffers World Cup injury scare

England manager Roy Hodgson has admitted he is concerned about the fitness of ex-Saint Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – just 10 days before their first World Cup match.

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered an injury scare during the 2-2 draw with Ecuador in Miami when Gruezo kicked the bottom of Oxlade-Chamberlain's right foot and then, while rolling over exaggeratedly, landed on the back of the Arsenal midfielder's leg.

Basingstoke Gazette:

Afterwards, Hodgson said: “Oxlade-Chamberlain is the one that bothers. His knee buckled under the the challenge as the player turned into him.

“He'll have a scan tomorrow, I'd imagine. When we've had the scan, we'll know more.”
