View from the opposition – Southampton
A bit about you
Name: Jamie Gordon
Current home town: Leicester
How long have you supported your team? 37 yrs
Overview of your club:
Great club which somehow keeps going when it keep selling it best players though seems to have run out of luck this year
Favourite thing about your home ground: The condition the pitch is in is always fabulous
Favourite match played by your team & why: Beating Liverpool last season being 2 nil down and coming back was so unlike us. Great to get one over all the old players
Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Matt Le Tissier…
About our forthcoming match against you:
Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Yoshida for always giving it his all
Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Tadic for his creativity
Player in our squad you most fear and why? Vardy for his pace
Up and coming prospect in your squad? Worryingly nobody seems to have made a breakthrough this year.
Southampton are desperate for a league win but presumably keen to avoid injuries and conserve energy for your semi-final on Sunday – how do you think you’ll approach the game? We just have to go for it and forget about Sunday
How do you think you'll do against us? 2-1 win for the saints
Where do you now think you'll finish this season? 16th
You were hoping for 8th place – where did you think it all went wrong? Not been good enough this year , never been the creative threat going forward and lost all confidence at the back. Tactics seemed questionable at times
Though you previously predicted Stoke (& this looks a good prediction now) do you still think Palace and Huddersfield will not claw their way out of the battle and if not which three teams do you now think will be relegated? WBA stoke and don’t care who else as long as not us!
Way back in December you correctly tipped Man City to win the league – why was that? Been best team by far this season
Any other comments? Praying for a miracle on Thursday!
