I currently hate supporting Saints, but not because we’re a bit shit at the moment, but because of the dickwad I-want-everything-now-and-I-will-not-tolerate-an-adjustment-period-or-poor-form fans. The whole of the modern game is rife with this bullshit attitude and it’s poisoning the sport.
I think I said the same thing after the appointment of Poch and Koeman, but I’ll say it again for the hell of it. If Fergie took over Man Utd now and had the same results he did when he first went to Utd, he’d be out on his ear sharpish. People are so fucking impatient nowadays that they won’t let managers build their own team. It’s madness.
That said, we have been a bit shit recently, and our play is ponderous and boring, but let’s not give up hope yet - maybe it’s part of Puel’s masterplan to creep through the festive period unscathed?!
(Also, if Austin wasn’t injured I reckon we would be 3 or 4 goals better off this season, which would probably even out the old points comparison with FatGinge.)
