    What are we gonna do? How does the club build itself up again?

    We desperately need a pop star...
    Elton got Watford his mate George Michael?

    I'd settle for an oil sheik.


    SOS

    As an antique could the club apply to the national trust for restoration?

    Wotte's done his best but the players went awol at sheffield.

    What gets me is the cynical way the 10-point deduction will operate. If we do not end up in the bottom three, then the ten points are deducted this season. If we are officially relegated, we start next season off with minus 10 points.

    We should never have got rid of the Dell. The Dell was our strength.

    I have to agree it seems a nasty way to dipense the penalty.
    Lets hope that you climb to 4th from bottom and at least have an even playing field next year.

    It should have been fines for the incompetent directors. The 10 points only hurt football how on earth can you justify point off which were earned on the pitched for the financial mismanagement of Rupert Lowe and co. I have a nice piece of hairy rough sisal rope I'd like to donate to each of the outgoing directors.

    Anyway two serious potential buyers have gone into due diligence so they are more they just looking at the books. Could one be George Michael.. he was seen squinting strongly outside St Marys Toilets.. he can't let Elton have all the fun at Watford.
    The other buyer? well maybe The Chinese Goverment.. they own USA so why not English Football starting with So'ton FC.

    2-2 against Burnley who really needed 3pts for their promotion hopes shows Saints can produce against teams at the top of the Coke... but sadly our lot failed to earn their pay for most of the season while the directors sank the club.

    I starting to look forward to new owners, lots of changes and a fresh start. -10 points is just a challenge but I wish it had been fines against the directors

    One game to go: I hope they do themselves , the fans and our hardest tryer Mark Wotte Proud and thrash Nots Forest.

    C'mon mate it's not too bad.

    Think about Luton, what are their fans thinking now.

    They are out of the League.

    And the good news is you get to play my lot twice next season.
    The Orient - there's 6 points for you right away.

    Agreed. The paying fans and players are punished for the 'crimes' of the directors etc. Why are the directors etc not fined thousands of pounds? It does not make sense.

    Sigh! Football used to be cheap and exciting entertainment for the masses. Who remembers those days of 'half-a-crown' at the turnstile?

    Note: Half-a-crown = 12.5 p.

    I well remember our promotion year game against Leyton Orient - the one where the wall collapsed! 1-1 draw and a good game.
