An amazing thing happened in football yesterday at St.Mary's stadium which to my recollection has never been seen before.Our fans actually sung and did the conga through TWO opposing fan's goal celebrations!
When the "Great Escape" first went up it was sung as an act of defiance.As if to say look,we know we haven't got the players or resources to compete against Southampton and yes,of course we're 2-1 down and already relegated but we're damn PROUD to support our club and we're telling our boys on the pitch that we're right behind them.
When the third goal against us went in i looked about and saw a hesitancy,people not sure whether to carry on singing but everyone you could see wanted to.So we did,then after the Saints sat back in their seats and the whistle blew to restart the game it was then that the Saints fans realised that those in blue had sung right through a goal celebration against them.Of course,we took great delight in singing through the fourth goal against us!
Hopefully now,our fans can take something from this show of togetherness as i'm sure alot of them yesterday do not follow the team away much and my point is that we can transform the atmosphere at our home games and realise that the fans have a big voice at this club.I think many who went to Southampton or who have heard what went on will be already looking forward to next season as opposed to being resigned to it.
C'mon guys and gals,go get those season tickets and keep that support coming.Proud to be a Shrimper,

In Britain's best town to retire to!
I've never been so proud to be a Shrimper.

The atmosphere at St Marys is something in the last 30 mins or so is something I'll never forget, the "Alan Ball" chants sent shivers down my spine and the reception the Saints fans gave us and our team was fantastic.
