The worst draw possible - long trek in midweek , yes it's winable but a closer game would have been better.

Despite my username, this is just down the road from me. Personally, I'm happy with this draw, and reckon we can edge it. It would be nice to put one over my Saints supporting friends.

Worst possible draw for me as the wife's a Saint's fan, so whatever the result things will be a bit icy in our house. Having said that I think it's definitely winable for the massive

Likewise SeattleOWL. I'm down in Lee-on-Solent on the South Coast and looking forward to putting a few of the Saints fans I work with in their places!! Certainly a winnable game as although they've had a good run over the last 2 years they aren't off to the best start to the season. With Man U & Arsenal to come they should be playing us off the back of 4 straight defeats.....
