    We all know what happened at the start. We lost Lambert, Lallana, Shaw, Lovren, Chambers and Pochettino. The first four of those players were key players in our starting XI and Pochettino was our most successful pl manager.

    We made a great appointment in Koeman. Someone who was that much of a legendary player, his name was a bigger pull in terms of transfers. We also recruited very well.

    Last season, although we had a great season we were still some way off breaking into the fabled top 7. Well this season we did it and we did it by breaking last seasons points tally AND clean sheets record.

    What an achievement. What a season.

    COYR!!!

    Would be very harsh if you missed out on European football next year, been a breath of fresh air from the usual closed shop.

    If it wasn't at our expense I'd love for you to finish top 6.

    Southampton spent about £70m on new players. They had a great start to the season where a top 4 finish could have been a reality. They then bottled it completely and ended up finishing outside of the European places. If their late season forms continues next season then it's only a matter of time before Koeman is given the boot and the inquest begins.

    The Liverpool fans are much better at baiting us than you are. You're just a bit boring tbh :bye

    You must wake up most mornings Shane and the first thing you do is check the league table.
    Unbelievable imo what this season has panned out after nothing more than a nightmare pre season.
    Excellent and chuffed for you all.

    Because we've got you into Europe, any chance of a discount on Schneiderlin? Kthanxbai.

    koeman got you guys doing very well in 2015-2016, I was looking at the form table, and basically it was like this.

    Last 5 games - saints top
    Last 10 games, Last 15 games, last 20 games, saints second only behind us.

    So more than half the season you was second best team in the league, I can only assume you had a dodgy start. Keep your manager and who knows what momentum would have done for you this season.

    Mate we had a ten game spell in the middle of that season where we lost 8 and drew 2 until Koeman changed the system. Then Mane went into best mode. 4 more points is all we needed in that bad run and we'd have been a champions league team. :laugh:
