    I assume you've forgotten about Redmond (a certain starter, I'd suggest), as opposed to hoping he doesn't feature :emoticon-0100-smile

    Yesssss!

    Let's get St Marys rocking for this one... biggest game for years!

    Not sure the team should go all out though. Considering the quality of the opposition I think it's vital just to make sure we're still in the tie. I'd probably take 0-0 now if offered.

    Be interesting to see their team tomorrow with this & Old Trafford next week for them. My guess is full youth tomorrow. Half and half for us and full strength against United.

    No Mane. Henderson, Matip & Sturridge all got knocks. Coutinho coming back from injury so even if he does play hopefully not fully fit and firing.

    We can ****ing take these lot!

    COME ON SAINTS!!!

    Hoping to get to this one, but it's not looking likely :emoticon-0107-sweat

    Will Fonte play for us again? The fans are going to be a bit mixed if he does. When there was a rumour at the beginning of the season, the fans sang his name....but they know they are wasting their time now. I'd like to think no one would be stupid enough to boo, but you can never underestimate football fans.

    I'm hoping for at least a 2 goal lead in this match. :)

    Don't think I've dreaded an upcoming big game as much as this one. Get knots in my stomach every time I think about it. I have absolute zero expectation of us getting a result and distinct feeling it could be embarrassing.

    So, throw your life savings on Saints winning 3-0.

    The Africans have gone now, and that suits us more than them. Can Flemingo's court case get speeded up & someone give Courtinho a kick to see if his ankles better.
    We can do this.

    As mentioned earlier, I'd take that now if offered.

    Vital that we're still in the tie at 10pm Weds night.

    This is the thing that could do it for us - show the players we believe in them and they will start to believe in themselves.

    Two legs require patient approach and a conservative approach may help. Liverpool have a big game at the weekend and have played a 'weakened' team in every round so far. I can't see this changing on Weds because they will fancy their chances of overturning any deficit in the second leg. We, the fans, must get behind them from the start and keep it going throughout whatever happens on the pitch - this is our season defining moment.

    First semi final in years and I don't think expectations could be much lower.

    Maybe we will surprise ourselves

    Can I just ask that we ignore any ex Saints and concentrate on motivating our team instead of our old team?
