View from the Opposition – Southampton

A bit about you:

Name: Graham East

Current home town: Leicester

Birthplace: Southampton

How long have you supported your team? 38 Years

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: The view (but overall I actually prefer the Dell)

Favourite match played by your team & why: Anytime we beat Portsmouth!

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Matt Le Tissier of course!

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why?  Alex McCarthy – without him we wouldn’t be in this division this season

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Jack Stephens – always puts in a shift

Player in our squad you most fear and why? So glad Jamie Vardy isn’t playing so now I’ll go for Maddison – settled well for you guys and looks a top buy already

Up and coming prospect in your squad? Jake Vokins – demonstrated by being Young Player of the Year last year

How do you think you’ll do against us? I’d take a 4-1 win to reverse the embarrassing scoreline last season in the same fixture.

General Questions:

What did you think to the summer transfer activity both in and out of your club? Big money spends on Mohammed Elyounoussi, Jannik Vestergaard & Angus Gunn (plus Stuart Armstrong) showed £54.5 million of ambition … but we’ll have to wait and see how good the investment was as it is too early to tell yet after just a few games.

Where do you think you’ll finish this season?  Top 10 is the aspiration

Who do you think will win the league? Manchester City, but I think Liverpool will run them closer this year

Which three teams do you think will get relegated from the Premiership? Cardiff, Huddersfield and Fulham

Any other comments? Good feature – keep it up.
