I just love the idea of this. What result, Saints or otherwise, would you have on your mug?
I think I would much prefer an Urban Dictionary mug, oh the fun and jolly japes I could have with one of those.
Sprunting would be my pick (warning definitely NSFW)
I genuinely to this day remember seeing “Southampton 6 - 3 Manchester United” on teletext and nearly shitting myself with excitement (I was about 9 to be fair) so it would have to be that.
There’s a few that stand out for me, mostly games I wasn’t at.
I’ll never forget the game against the Netherlands in Euro 96. Watched it with my little brothers and their mates and we fucking mullered them. I think it was one the first times either of them had really caught the excitement of football.
West Ham 3-0 Saints (Dad’s a cunt*)
*not really, made up for the gag
Think I would have to go with England 903 for 7 Declared
Because football just depresses me at the moment
Oh 1938 at The Oval
Saints 9 - 3 Wolves - 1965 we were a goal down in 30 seconds (Knapp og) but 5 - 2 up at half time. Scoring ended after 60 minutes, Wolves goalie Dave McClaren played a blinder srsly. We signed him later in the season after Campbell Forsyth broke his leg. Mc Claren played shit for us.
I was with my mate in the Chocolate Box, Milton Road End. I still have the Sports Echo from that day.
