Great game from start to finish, although we could have been 3 or 4 up at half time. JRod hit the side netting about 10 times in the first 30 mins !!!

Four (4!) Southampton players in the England squad! All worthy of their place. Days like these make me proud to be a Southampton fan. #Saintsfc   #epl   #england

Let hope Shaw and Lallana start as well. JayRod needs game time too and one off the shin (!) to spark his confidence in an England shirt. Great news for Saints all round though.

I think that changing the logo back could be a sign that KL wants to take us back to our roots. What do you think? And do you think we're going to be more frugal this summer?

It's going to be important to retain our core players, but do you think that we might see a bit of penny-pinching from KL and the board regarding new signings?

Is this regression a good or a bad thing? I don't want us to start slipping back into being a struggling side.

Its clearly a sign that we will be back in red & white stripes next year. I'm not a fan of the deck chair look tbh; I'd like to keep the all red shirts, but retain our full colours and bring it with black shorts & white socks again. Id happily have the sash back though and stick with it long term. We'd really stand out from everyone else in English football and give us a strong brand to be identified with. Black shorts though (think River Plate look !).

We need to keep hold of our young talent but I'd be amazed (& delighted) if Shaw stayed. Lallana is key too and hope he's a one club man; you kind of feel he might be if he gets on the plane to Brazil. JWP again played well today & will be around next year; he's got more to come. If Chambers goes, we have Clyne (& vise versa). I think we can cope if a couple leave. Pochettino will want a striker this summer again to add to the depth chart up top (given Osvaldo & Lambert's age).

As for KL and Kruger; they might be saying all the right things but I'm not interested in PR talk 5 minutes in the door at St Marys ! This summer is going to be interesting and it will tell us what we really have post Cortese at #SaintsFC.

Introduction
I like music, writing, technology and being a massive nerd.

Jobbing Social Media Manager, Southampton fan. These views are my own, obviously!

Happy, done quite a bit, living in London.

I'm not an expert, I don't believe in bullshit, and I don't really like buzzwords. My blog is somewhere I let off steam and try de-code and de-mystify some of the rubbish that you can hear flying around about Social Media.

I don't believe in making social media and technology complicated.
