In August 2012, without much other football to watch on that day, I watched the Premier League's first game of the season: Manchester City v Southampton. I forget the result, but I can't forget the unexpected Southampton performance. Afterwards, I was saying that, if someone, who hadn't followed the English game, was told that one of the teams was freshly promoted and the other was last season's champions, they might well form the wrong conclusions on which team did which.

Southampton struggled in the early part of the season and had a modest mid-table finish in the end. This season, with new confidence, they have been as high as 3rd and 4th. Few are surprised, and many believe that a top-four finish is not beyond the bounds of possibility. Neutral fans like their style - a style somewhat reminiscent of Dortmund's style - and they've become many people's second-favourite team.

It isn't all by good luck, however. The attention to detail at the club is fascinating. This report on the club is one of the best football articles from the Daily Mail in some time:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2515877/Southampton-masterplan-win-Premier-League.html

And this one, while not of the same degree of interest, tells a little about their mysterious manager:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2516184/Southamptons-Mauricio-Pochettino-saviour-English-football.html

PS. Hmmmm... I think that I must have given them the kiss of death by adding that article. This afternoon they let in three goals for the first time this season - in a 3-1 defeat by Chelsea.

I share your opinion Badger. I've been very impressed with the way Southampton are playing. And it's their second season in the PL! They've got a great core of young and talented players and a very competent coach. The football they play is also very pleasing on the eye. Hope they can manage a top 7 finish at least.

Just heard on BBC MoTD that Boruc (Southampton keeper) will be out for 6 weeks. :(

This is Robbie Savage's analysis of Chelsea's win against Southampton. There's a lot of sound observations in it - although his final verdict on Southampton may be a bit reactive to their worst league defeat.

Effin' Suarez. You have got to see the other goals.
The guy's a genius. If it were upto me, I'd rather we pay 40-50m for him than take Lewa on a free. There will be goals galore and all beauties.
I don't like Lewa, not been able to warm up to the idea of him joining Bayern. Also, he can't hold a candle to Suarez. :|

Well, I'm still waiting to see this huge performances in big games. He only shines in Premier League. Suarez can score 4 goals against an average PL team, but it's not like he scored 4 against Real Madrid in a CL semifinal game :wink:
