|korsun0 ||08 Aug 2017 5:41 a.m. PST|
As a Goonah I anticipate a loss in the first game, near top of the table at christmas and a steady drop after with lack of progress in any competition except the FA cup…….
My pick for the title is, unfortunately, Manure. They have made some good buys.

As a Saints (Southampton) fan I look forward to another season of trying to compete with teams whose squads cost more than the value of the whole club I support and watching Liverpool turnout with half a team of ex Southampton players…. While hopefully battling it out for another exciting mid table finish.

Makes a change, used to be Arsenal was half Saints, half French……
