    Southampton v Burnley Match Preview

    It may be St Valentine’s Day today but there will be no love and affection on show for our visit to St Mary’s stadium tomorrow. The rest of the season begins there and we need to build on the much improved performances against Leicester Manchester United and Arsenal. Let’s not forget the historical markers too. We last did the double over the Saints in the glorious 1946/47 season. An opening day 3-0 win over a hapless Southampton gives us the perfect platform to repeat that feat. Saints results have much improved since then when they also suffered a humiliating 9-0 home defeat by Leicester. We are now locked together on 31 points and Saints manager Hasenhüttl will doubtless be keen to bolster their miserable home record this season with a victory over the Clarets. He may have to do so without James Ward-Prowse but he will have ex-Claret Danny Ings available to face his former club. Jay Rodriguez will make a return to St Mary’s and the relative performances of the strikers Ings/Long v Wood/Rodriguez could well decide the outcome of this match. COYC!

    I'm just about ready to set off to pick my lad up in Baxenden, then it's the dreaded 5 hour road trip to Southampton.

    I'm looking forward to my expected 3-0 rout of the Saints and returning back on Sunday, with three points and hopefully a manageable hangover!

    Hope it all goes well BT, the weather forecast is somewhat alarming.

    Sinkov--- he probably saw the forecast in the Telegraph, Express or Mail so he didn't believe it anyway ---now had it been in the Palestinian Gazette --that would have been another thing!

    Have a safe trip BT, whatever the weather and whatever the result! --Remember----it is only a game!

    It's only a game if they play it Sub, strong winds and the Elf and Safety Executive are a lethal combination when it comes to getting games played.

    Barry Kilby has provided me with two tickets so will be with the Directors for the match. Will have a word with Mt Garlick and ask him where all the money has gone... (Or maybe not).

    You could ask him where Gibson has gone as well while you're at it Matelot....or maybe not.
