1 - How long have you been a Saints fan?

I signed a week after my 14th birthday and I have just turned 26. So that would make it 12 years.

2 - Can you remember your first game?

Yeah it was the day I signed as a Scholar. We played Spurs and it was a boring 0-0 draw. Not too exciting.

3 - What is your most memorable moment as a Saints fan?

I was lucky enough to be at the final game ever at the Dell. It was pretty special. Also the last league game at the Dell when Le Tiss banged in a screamer against Arsenal.

4 - And the worst moment?

The dreaded relegation.

5 - Who are your favourite current Saints players?

I'm a big fan of Drew Surman, but Adam Lallana and Lee Holmes look to be decent players also.

6 - Which former player do you wish hadn't moved on/retired?

Big Dean Richards. I was sad when Spurs took him away but was also more devasted when he had to retire through injury.

7 - Which player do you think was the worst to ever put on the team colours?

Boy there have been a few. Imants Bleidelis sticks out in my mind for some reason though.

8 - What is the best goal you have seen Saints score?

Mark Hughes scored an absolute peach of a volley against Newcastle in the pouring rain. I think that was his first for the club.

9 - What is the most memorable game you've seen?

The last league game at The Dell when Le Tiss popped up to make it 3-2 in the dying moments. Brilliant.

10 - Pick us your dream Saints XI.

GK - Paul Jones
RB - Jason Dodd
CB - Dean Richards
CB - Michael Svensson
LB - Wayne Bridge
RM - Marian Pahars
CM - Matt Le Tissier
CM - Kevin Keegan
LM - Chris Marsden
FW - James Beattie
FW - Alan Shearer
