You know most of us have been here quite a few times. The worst part of it of course is the lack of entertainment in a season where we're not playing well. How many great escapes have we been through...quite a lot and a few that ended in relegation of course.
If we stay up we will yet again try to compete in the lop-sided League where the top 6 rotate the honours and have no chance of being relegated while the rest of us fight for scraps from the table. Staying up means another unseemly expenditure of bloated TV revenues on unworthy players whilst your academy talent is farmed out to teams down the leagues.
I don't mind going down spending a season or two out of the sordid limelight having a bit of fun watching Saints win games again and maybe having the satisfaction of bringing through some of our own players to fill the gaps left by the mercenaries who no doubt will jump ship on relegation.
Whatever happens, bring it on. I'll renew as I have always done...I'll still be at St Mary's on a Saturday.
