    Seven. Seven bloody threads I've done so far. This one's number eight. I hate you all*.

    The number eight is considered to be a lucky number in Chinese and other Asian cultures. Eight (八; accounting 捌; pinyin ) is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word meaning to generate wealth (發(T) 发(S); Pinyin: ). Property with the number 8 may be valued greatly by Chinese. For example, a Hong Kong number plate with the number 8 was sold for $640,000. The opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Beijing started at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8 pm (local time) on 8 August 2008.






    *Saints' longest unbeaten run was 19 games in 1921,starting in September (same as this interminable run). If I hate you all now, I can't imagine what emotions that might engender. Let's hope we don't find out.

    I actually feel like we should sit back a bit in this one. United under Ole literally can't do anything but counter attack and by going all out against them I think we play into their hands.

    Aim to keep it tight while choosing our moments to press and we should win this.

    I agree. That will be tough though to go against instinct. The game at OT last season did exactly what you have suggested. We pinned them back in their last third fior 20 minutes and suddenly were 2-1 down.

    That’s incredible. It’s so good that when he inevitably does lose one around February or March time, I think he sho break tradition and carry on.

    I would say that around the beginning of April, when we have clinched the title, we should have a poll on whether to let him have a break, or carry on until the end of the season.

    Why waste a poll, he does bugger all on here these days. Just make him do it.

    997 premier league points.

    Just a couple of weeks after scoring our 1000 premier league goal we are just a win away from 1000 premier league points..

    Can't think of a better game than Man Utd at home to achieve it.

    They’ve probably and quite rightly, written this one off and decided to concentrate on a more winnable game.

    No guarantee we’ll win, but United aren’t what they were and neither are we. Won’t be a surprise if we win.
