    When I woke up on May 1 1976 I was dreaming of Man Utd tearing Saints apart with goals flying past poor Turner, and when we kicked off it was like deja vu. At any moment the collapse would start, it seemed. By the time I fell asleep again in the small hours of May 2 I thought that this was going to be the first glory day of many.
    Well we're still waiting for a repeat, but Lawrie did take us from being a hum-drum Second Division team to being serious challengers, only to have his ambition curtailed by an over-cautious Board.

    Not sure what that says about today, but I woke up dreaming of Theo being interviewed after a MOTM performance so we're probably ****ed!

    If hope fails, beg. I see the strategy.

    I suspect you've neatly summed up the feelings of all saints fans this morning!

    I had managed to distance myself from the game as I was convinced we would lose and I don't care, after reading these comments I'm now exited and positive. You tossers.

    Come on lads. One game. Play like we know you can, and we can definitely do this. Be part of history. Redders, don’t forget to put the burners on and have a pint of confidence juice!

    I’d managed to convince myself that staying up was more important than this until I woke up this morning and realised this is far more important ... Bugger!

    If everyone puts today’s 100% in to this along with the 50% we saved from the West Brom game then we can do this

    Come on guys, this is the match of your life and the first step of two to becoming Saints Legends :1980_boogie_down:<diva>

    The phases 'cup upset', giant killers' and 'unexpected winners' come to mind.

    The government want a Chelsea v Saints final as fans will have to travel less distance therefore it will happen. :)

    I realise that this isn't the politics thread, but things are desperate if we're relying on the wishes of Boris Johnson and his bunch of clowns!

    Dishwasher done. And in proof that I won, I am typing this after putting all the stuff away, closed the cupboards and the kettle is still boiling :)

    To be fair I did fill it up 'a little' more than normal just to make sure. It isn't cheating and I did it for you guys.

    I also have another ritual on matchdays that I completed successfully. I gargled OWTSGMI without needing to breathe after brushing my teeth. The last ritual is a shave now without cutting myself. I should have this one as I use an electric razor now <laugh>
