Lol a bit of both and quite true
On a different level, its been similar for us as well. Remember that down and out feeling against Watford? We were so bad, we were staring down the barrel, and truly got out of jail with JWP's freekick. And that high was fantastic, then the Norwich game gave us a platform. Really massive results. But once we started this recent run, there's not the same 'everything riding on it' reward, so the more you win, the less you get. I'm not trying to downgrade or take anything away from our achievements, I much prefer winning and the safety of it (rather than libbys danger)......but the sheer adrenaline of results like the Swansea all or nothing don't compare to anything else. Its why I've always loved being a Saint, and never understood the ManU or Chelsea fans, it really must be rather boring.
Anyone else get that?
Yep deffo. That Swansea game for instance brought me to tears after the final whistle - such was the tension. Nothing does that like football and Saints!
And had we been languishing in 18th today, I wouldn't have been brave enough to write that. I wouldn't admit to it either, hell I might even fake to myself that I don't believe it!
Football is a funny old game, stirs stuff like nothing else.
Yes it is. But, the other 19 places are more unpredictable than I can ever remember, especially since the emergence of the Big 4/6 in the 00's and 10's.
I agree, the rest of the league is much more interesting. And yet all I ever hear about is Liverpool.
Come on. Thats clear hyperbole.
Also, it does kinda merit headlines when they're almost two-thirds of the way toward the best season in the top flight in the history of English football. That's a bit of a story!
I only read the BBC Sport website for football news. They currently have a grand total of one story about Liverpool (the match review vs Wolves). Man Utd however have three.
Man City have one. Spurs have two. Newcastle have one. Northampton, Sheff Wed, Arsenal Women, PSG, Birmingham/Coventry all have a story. The headline article is about Dortmund.
I used to say that if Wayne Rooney picked his nose just outside the penalty area [whether or not there was a match being played] then that would generate more news than if Saints won 2-0 against ManU's rivals, ie Man City or Liverpool.
And that is how skewed football news is. Although you don't hear so much about Rooney anymore. His news day is pretty much done
Cheering on the Hammers while willing them to lose.
Hoping they put up a beast of a fight while taking nothing away.
This shall be one heck of a conflicted nights football, but I'm
really looking forward to it! Come on medical staff, busy night please.
I'd just much prefer it if Liverpool stuff West Ham in a very demoralising manner please.
Indeed. The only thing we want them taking from tonight is the reputation of handing out knocks to key players.
Strong line up. Lets hope they are tested to the fullest.
Hungary, organised, resolute. Not words you usually associate with the hammers, but a good first 20 minutes. Liverpool are being made to work very hard so far.
Pen to Liverpool.
Sloppy play Spam.
Woodwork saves L'pool from a own goal.
Some crackers at the bottom end of the division today.
Another example today of why I haven't yet written Norwich. They have again been creating chances. But, again, they haven't taken them.
If though that continues in the second half, then I might have to concede. With Bmouth and West Ham both winning, the gap above Norwich is just getting ever bigger. At some point they need to turn their displays into points - and that might just have to come today.
