Southampton Home To Hartlepool
Southampton host Hartlepool tonight and by all accounts have a relatively routine match in front of them. This is not I hope how the team are feeling.
This season we have failed consistantly to beat those teams which on paper we should have.
We have had to endure a pitch which was only suitable for mud wrestling.
The pitch was like playing on a half sandy half stony beach and not condusive to good football.
The referee had been bought by our opponent or was totally blind and possessed a fanatical hatred for whichever coloured strip we happened to have been wearing.
Excuses keep coming for our inability to beat the lower placed teams. Tonight I pray is not going to be one of those games.
