That's what the Saints supporter in the office next door keeps saying and I don't think Charlton will wipe the smile off his face tonight. The bookies certainly have us at long odds.
There are a few encouraging signs in Charlton's play. Chris Powell is trying to get them to play a passing game (to a red shirt). Some of the players are not up to that, but we are gradually getting players who are. At first sight Michael Stewart is a class act compared with McCormack. I hear that Johnnie Jackson will be available soon and that will help a lot, although it will be interesting to see who he replaces.
Unfortunately we are still capable of making defensive errors and that may let us down tonight. Defending from corners needs to be tightened up (defending from free kicks is improving).
I'm afraid it looks lika 2-0 win for the 'Arrogants' tonight. However, Southampton are not invincible defensively, so there is some hope.
The game is one in hand for Southampton and is billed on the south coast as a 'must win' game for the automatic promotion hopefuls, but then they all are: Saints
