Bruce’s Hopes Comes True – At Least Momentarily


With Southampton losing 9-0 at Leicester City yesterday, they have dropped into the bottom three on goal difference. The Saints have also just one point in their last five games, and that was at Wolves last weekend.

Their misfortune is Newcastle’s gain as The Magpies climbed to seventeenth without even playing a match, and will remain in that spot when they face Wolves on Sunday.

Cellar dwellers Watford will host Bournemouth today but are four points adrift from safety, so no matter the result, they will trail Newcastle after this weekend’s fixtures.

Norwich City who are currently in the 19th spot, face Manchester United tomorrow at Carrow Road. The Canaries are just 1 point behind Newcastle but play the late game on Sunday.


Steve Bruce spoke about being in the dreaded relegation zone yesterday at his news conference:

“Nobody wants to be in the bottom 3, but I was always aware the start would be difficult.

“3 points separates 10 or 11 teams, so let’s hope we can get a victory this weekend & start pushing ourselves up the table.

“We’re quietly confident we can do it”

So far, so good on that front. Now we need a win tomorrow to ensure we start a push up the table. Draws are no good, especially at home to teams outside the top six.

Though with the way Leicester City are playing this year, it may be a top seven. Just shows you what a little bit of ambition can do.

    Just to add, each of his three goals were very good goals.
    Reckon once he gets used to that team and Rogers’ tactics then he will be scoring quite a few.

    BBC:

    Worst Christmas present ever?

    Southampton fans waking up wondering if last night’s record-equalling 9-0 defeat at home to Leicester was all just a bad dream, spare a thought for 13-year-old fan Tom Sherburn.

    He went to his first ever match at St Mary’s full of excitement and optimism – the tickets proudly presented to him as a present last Christmas.

    All that build-up, all that waiting and then the crushing realisation of what it truly means to be a football fan – leaving the ground in tears, 10 minutes before full-time.
