Premier League

Last season Newcastle became

the first top-flight side since

1990/91 to fail to win any

of their opening 14 league

matches and avoid the drop.

Indeed, under the guidance

of Eddie Howe, who replaced

Steve Bruce last November, the

Magpies eventually finished

11th. Over the second half

of the season, Newcastle

were the joint third-best

team in the league.

The transformation has

continued this term with

Newcastle sitting fourth. A

comfortable top-half finish

and a cup run was the public

aim in the summer.

Howe has galvanised a set

of under-performing players,

but having money to spend

following the club’s muchpublicised

takeover has also

helped. Nearly £90m was spent

in January, while this summer

former Saints left-back Matt

Targett was signed from Aston

Villa following a loan spell,

goalkeeper Nick Pope arrived

from Burnley and £32m was

splashed on Lille defender Sven

Botman. A club-record £63m

was paid for Real Sociedad

striker Alexander Isak. However,

after two goals in his first three

games, a thigh injury ruled him

out until after the World Cup.

Being fourth in the league is

no coincidence. From pressing

and long passes in behind

the defence to wing-play and

set-pieces, this Newcastle

side have clear ideas in and

out of possession. The Toon

haven’t found themselves

in such a lofty position this

deep into a Premier League

campaign since 2011/12,

when they finished fifth.

the boss:

ENGLISH / AGE: 44

Eddie Howe succeeded Steve Bruce as Newcastle’s head coach a

year ago this month and has already achieved legendary status

on Tyneside. He had been out of management since departing

Bournemouth in August 2020 following their relegation. Leaving

aside a brief interlude at Burnley, Howe had become synonymous

with the Cherries’ rise from the foot of the Football League. The

former Bournemouth centre-back, who had retired at the age of 29

due to a knee injury, was named their manager in December 2008.

He secured the Cherries’ league status after they had begun the

season with a 17-point penalty for failing to comply with insolvency

rules and guided them to promotion the following year. Although

Howe left to become Burnley boss midway through the 2010/11

campaign, he rejoined Bournemouth in October 2012, eventually

leading the Cherries to the Premier League for the first time in 2015.

Ten-year record:

one to watch:

PARAGUAYAN / MIDFIELDER / AGE: 28

“Playing like (Miguel) Almirón” – that jibe from Jack Grealish – now

means scoring more goals than Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Salah

this season. With six goals in as many games in October, Almirón

has bagged more Premier League strikes inside 29 days as Grealish

has since his British-record move to Manchester City 15 months

ago. Almirón is an attacker reborn. His tally of seven goals this term

is already Almirón’s best return for a Premier League season. He

managed zero in 2018/19, four in 2019/20, four in 2020/21 and one

in 2021/22. The St James’ Park faithful unfurled a ‘Wor Miggy’ banner

in August to show their support for a player who is very much repaying

the faith they’ve shown in him since his arrival from Atalanta United.

It’s not just his goals that make him a fans’ favourite. “His work ethic is

just incredible,” Eddie Howe said recently.

RALPH

HASENHÜTTL

Dear supporters,

welcome back to St

Mary’s for today’s

Premier League match against

Newcastle United.

I would like to begin by

welcoming head coach

Eddie Howe, his staff and

all the players of Newcastle

United to Southampton.

We know the task facing us

against a side that has lost

only one game so far this

season, but this was the

challenge we had against

Arsenal last time here, and

we showed we can compete

against these teams.

The key to that performance

was the belief we showed.

The attitude of the players

was fantastic, even after a

tough start, and they were

rewarded in the second

half with a beautiful goal

and a deserved draw.

Last weekend against Crystal

Palace was a frustrating game

for us because when you do

not take your chances then you

don’t deserve to take points.

Today we know we must be

better from the first whistle.

Now we are into the last

week before the winter

break. This is something I

have experienced previously

in my career, but never for

six weeks, which is a long

time to go without playing.

This makes it very important

that we leave ourselves in

the best possible position

going into the break. We

have to fight for every ball

and give everything to take

points from these last two

Premier League games to

help us climb the table.

As always, we need you

behind us at home. The

atmosphere inside St Mary’s

is crucial to the success of

this team – staying positive

in the difficult moments,

encouraging the players and

proudly singing your songs.

We will do everything for us

to have a successful Sunday

afternoon and continue

to fight for our club.

We March On.

Ralph Hasenhüttl

“We know the

task facing

has lost only

one game

“Numbers

always do

the talking,

and that’s

what I want

to get

more of.”

Life is about to change for Adam Armstrong,

whose wife Rebecca is expecting their first

child in the coming days, but one thing that won’t

change is the striker’s desire to score goals –

even against the team he grew up supporting…


10 / saints

He might be

a long way

from

Newcastle,

but if home is where the

heart is, Adam

Armstrong’s heart

belongs to Southampton

ahead of today’s

showdown with his

boyhood club.

The affable, lowmaintenance

Geordie is

all smiles as he invites

the SAINTS team into his

house on the outskirts of

Winchester, half an hour

from St Mary’s Stadium,

where he faces Newcastle

United this afternoon.

Topics of conversation

range from adapting to

his new life on the south

coast, how he spends

his spare time off the

pitch, and the imminent

arrival of his first child; to

returning to the Premier

League after six years

away, being a World Cup

winner, and the feeling

of wanting to beat the

team you once idolised.

Armstrong takes the lead

on a tour of his home,

which he shares with

wife Rebecca, whose due

date for the couple’s baby

boy is November 16th.

“It could come anytime

now,” he says, excitedly.

“It’s eye-opening to be a

parent, and it’s something

that we’re looking forward

to. Hopefully we’ll be fine.

“It’s a little boy,

so we’ll have him

kicking a football

around in no time!”

Armstrong admits

Rebecca has been the

driving force behind

kitting out the baby’s

room, which already

includes some classic

children’s books

on the shelves.

“There’s a

flight every

day from

Newcastle to

Southampton,

and my family

are happy to

drive down…

they always

come to the

home games.”


saints / 11


12 / saints

The due date comes at a

good time for the striker,

with Saints’ players

being given some time

off after the final game

ahead of the World Cup

break against Liverpool

next weekend, before

they embark on a mini

pre-season in preparation

for the Premier League’s

return on Boxing Day.

“Hopefully, touchwood,

if everything’s alright I’ll

have the two weeks off

with the baby,” he says.

“I don’t think many

footballers can say that

they’ve had that with a

child, so that’ll be nice –

to be around every day

and get really tired!”

Armstrong often

mentions the support of

his family, who are regular

visitors – even from

Newcastle – and will help

Rebecca with the childcare

once Saints’ manic

schedule resumes over

the festive period, while

teammate Ché Adams

is currently expecting

a baby girl – a future

girlfriend for his son,

perhaps, Armstrong jokes.

“Ché’s is the same time,

really – anytime now,

so it’s interesting. We

don’t live too far away

so we’re always there

to help each other out,

so that’s quite nice.

“I knew Ché quite a bit

before I signed here, and

ever since I signed we

just clicked. Our wives get

on, and, like I said, we’re

not too far away from

each other, so it makes

things much easier.”

Football is a small world

– Armstrong will tell

you that. His move to

“I play a bit

of FIFA and

COD (Call of

Duty) with Ché,

but Ché’s the

proper gamer

– he’s the best

at both games

I play… it’s

pointless even

playing him at

FIFA!”


saints / 13

Saints 18 months ago,

the same summer he

and Rebecca tied the

knot, reunited him with

former Coventry City

teammate Jack Stephens,

while Kyle Walker-Peters

and Ainsley Maitland-

Niles were members

of England’s Under-20

World Cup triumph in

2017, in which Armstrong

featured in four matches

and scored in the Three

Lions’ opening game

against Argentina.

Though already used to

relocating around the

country following loan

spells from Newcastle to

Coventry, Barnsley, Bolton

Wanderers and Blackburn

Rovers – the latter

becoming a permanent

switch – he’d never been

anywhere near as far

from home as he is now.

Armstrong

plants a kiss on

the Under-20

World Cup trophy

in 2017.

“I think at first it

was probably a little

worry,” he admits, “but

there’s a flight every

day from Newcastle

to Southampton, and

my family are happy

to drive down.

“They love their football

and they love coming

to the games, so that’s

the main thing. They

always come to the

home games, which is

good, and we can make a

weekend of it as well, so

they’re not just coming

and going straightaway.

That’s pretty nice.”

His Saints career, which

started with a debut

goal at Everton, began

with a three-month solo

hotel stint – not ideal

for a man who, by his

own admission, can cook

“fajitas or a bit of pasta,

but nothing much”. But it

did allow him to get used

to his new surroundings.

“I’ve done it a few times

but not for that long,”

he says of the hotel

life. “It was good, it

was interesting going

out to see different

things and having

takeaways every night!”

The house tour continues

with a step into

Armstrong’s games room

– the smallest room in

the house – where he has

a PlayStation 5 and some

eye-catching football

memorabilia on the walls,

including framed shirts

and signed matchballs.

“I don’t really collect

many shirts but I think

it’s something I’d like to

start doing, because when

you come to retire I think

that’ll be an amazing

thing to see where all

those players were and

how they did in their

career,” he explains. At

the moment, it’s just his

own shirts that hold pride

of place, but he’d like to

have more to show his

son in the years to come.

“That’s probably the main

thing now – becoming

a dad, and him seeing

everything that I had

and what I achieved in

my career. Hopefully, he

could be the same.”


14 / saints

Among those on display

are two England shirts,

from the World Cup win

and Under-17 European

Championship triumph

three years prior, in which

again Armstrong played

a prominent part; and his

first shirt at Newcastle,

where he made his debut

in the Premier League

at 17 years old, with

the No 43 on the back.

“I think there were

seven players who were

involved in both squads,”

he says of the England

successes. “I think if

you look at our World

Cup squad now, I think

everyone’s still playing at

the top level, so we had

an unbelievable group

and performed quite well

on the pitch together.”

The use of “quite well”

is typically modest from

a naturally understated

character who lists

Fikayo Tomori, Lewis

Cook, Dominic Solanke,

Freddie Woodman, Josh

Onomah, Patrick Roberts

and Dominic Calvert-

Lewin – “he scored the

winning goal to win the

World Cup, so I’ve got him

to thank for that!” along

with Maitland-Niles and

Walker-Peters from the

squad, while Joe Gomez

and Marcus Rashford

were also in his age group.

“That’s for me to look

back on when I get a bit

older and retire. I can

look back at these good

“I never put

pressure on

myself. It’s

something that

I was doing as

a kid, so why

would I start

moaning now or

start playing

on my mind

if I wasn’t

scoring? That’s

football.”


saints / 15

memories,” he adds,

before recognising his

hours in the games room

are likely to be heavily

reduced following the

new arrival in the family.

“I like to spend a bit

of time in here after

training, and speak to

friends from back home,”

he says. “That’s probably

the main reason I play

– to keep in touch with

friends back home, and

see how they’re doing.

“I play a bit of FIFA and

COD (Call of Duty) with

Ché, but Ché’s the proper

gamer – he’s the best

at both games I play.

“He tries to be nice to

us now, but it’s getting

to the point where it’s

pointless even playing

him at FIFA – he’s

really good. Hopefully

I’ll beat him one day!”

“There’s no

better feeling”

– Armstrong

scores Saints’

winner against

Chelsea in

August, and

celebrates the

imminent arrival

of his son

(below).

The final stop of the

tour is the living room,

where Armstrong

watches a lot of football,

though Rebecca is

happy with that and

a keen fan herself.

The conversation turns

to the here and now,

and how the striker

feels about establishing

himself as a Premier

League player.

“I wouldn’t say

established yet, but

I always think that if

you hit 100 caps in the

Premier League, you

can say that you’ve

had a good career,” he

states, unaware he’s

now exactly halfway

to that milestone.

“To get to the Premier

League is amazing, and

it’s been quite enjoyable

to see different leagues,

coming across different

managers, different

tactics – it’s been eyeopening

and it’s benefited

me massively, as well

as playing in different

positions as well.

“The main thing was to

get back to the Premier

League. That was

the first thing on my

mind when I signed for

Blackburn – to try and

help Blackburn get to the

Premier League, but if it

wasn’t, then hopefully I

could get back there.”

Of his half-century of

top-flight appearances,

35 have come as a Saint,

including three goals

– another number the

striker is determined to

improve on, though one

mitigating factor has

been Ralph Hasenhüttl’s

tendency to use him in


saints / 17

a wider role, flanking his

mate Adams in attack.

“I’ve always been a

goalscorer growing up,

I’ve always played No

9,” he says. “I had a

spell at Blackburn when

I played left and right

wing for a good season

and a half, and I enjoyed

it, I really liked it.

“I’d say you get on the

ball quite a lot more, get

to drive at defenders,

so it’s been good. I’m

not too fussed where

I play at the minute.

“I never put pressure

on myself anyway,” he

continues, on the topic

of scoring goals. “It’s

something that I was

doing as a kid, so why

would I start moaning

now or start playing

on my mind if I wasn’t

scoring? That’s football.

Happy families:

Adam and wife

Rebecca with

dogs Vinnie and

Reggie.

“You see the best in

the world miss chances,

but numbers always do

the talking, and that’s

what I want to get more

of – more assists, more

goals. Hopefully that will

come more this season.”

When Armstrong has

scored, his goals against

Aston Villa and Chelsea,

both at St Mary’s, proved

decisive in earning three

points for Saints.

“That Chelsea game

was unbelievable,”

he grins. “To get the

winner in front of

the crowd under the

lights, there’s no better

feeling. It’s something

I’m very proud of.”

Joining the Newcastle

Academy at the age of

nine, Armstrong grew up

idolising Alan Shearer,

ironically following his

hero’s path between

St James’ Park, Ewood

Park and St Mary’s,

albeit in reverse.

Both sides of the family

are Newcastle through

and through, but Saints’

No 9 is adamant there

will be no split loyalties

come kick-off.

“They’ve got to be Team

Armstrong, haven’t they?

They’ve followed us

around many times, and

I’ve played Newcastle

before with Blackburn,

so that was interesting.”

He scored in that game,

in the FA Cup, but

finished on the losing

side after extra time.

“It was good, with a bit of

banter, but when it comes

down to the game I think

they’re all supporting me

and wanting me to do the

best and get the win.”

sOUTHAMPTON FC

WOMEN UPDATE

SAINTS CONTINUE UNBEATEN

LEAGUE RUN AGAINST SUNDERLAND

A triumphant return

to St Mary’s at the

weekend saw

Southampton FC Women beat

Sunderland 1-0 to cement

third place in the table and

continue their unbeaten

league run ahead of the

November international break.

Katie Wilkinson’s effort from

a 25-yard free-kick the first

to dirty the gloves of visiting

keeper Claudia Moan after only

four minutes, not that Saints’

early dominance came as no

real shock given the league

position of each team.

The home side’s siege showed

no signs of slowing as the

10th minute came and went,

both Wilkinson and Lucia

Kendall trying their luck around

that time, stopped by the

well positioned Moan and

the excellent sliding block of

Grace McCatty respectively as

Sunderland clung on.

Credit to the away side, too,

as – after absorbing the early

pressure – they began to grow

into the match as the minutes

neared 20, earning four corners

in quick succession. The last of

these was swung directly on

target by Tyler Dodds, forcing

Kayla Rendell to take swift

action and punch clear with her

right fist.

Ella Pusey looked set to grab

her second of the season in

the 26th minute after being

threaded through perfectly by

Wilkinson. However, for the

second time in the match, a

last-ditch sliding challenge was

Ella Pusey celebrates with teammate Katie Wilkinson after scoring against Sunderland at St Mary’s.


saints / 21

just enough to deny the home

side an opener.

Continuing in its unpredictable

rhythm, the next highlight of

the game came courtesy of

Emily Scarr’s right boot, the

midfielder setting herself from

approximately 20-yards, left

of goal, before whipping her

vicious effort toward Rendell’s

near post, forcing the stopper

into an impressive diving save

on 40 minutes.

Megan Wynne’s unfortunate

miss shortly after was arguably

the third or fourth presentable

chance Saints had failed to

convert a good chance. As halftime

approached, there was

a growing sense they should

make their next count.

That chance arrived in the

second half, in the 58th

minute, and it perhaps fell to

the perfect person, Wilkinson

once again doing brilliantly

to flick her header backwards

toward the penalty spot,

before the in-form Pusey

stole in at the far post to roll

her first-time finish home

confidently beyond the

outstretched Moan, leaving the

goalkeeper helpless.

It was a goal met with jubilant

appreciation by Saints’

2,799-strong home faithful,

whose aim was to now support

their side in navigating the

crucial half-hour that remained.

That was a task Southampton

managed impeccably right

through to the 90th minute,

resisting every attack their

opposition threw at them in

a bid to draw level and avoid

successive league defeats.

Southampton Football Club

remembers the players, supporters

and associates we have lost over the

past 12 months with our dedicated

tribute-led ALL SAINTS DAY fixture.

DAVID ARMSTRONG

David Armstrong – who passed

away in August, aged 67 – was

a Southampton midfielder who

played 272 games for the club

between 1981 and 1987, some

of the club’s most successful

years.

Under manager Lawrie

McMenemy, they led Division

One (then the top-flight) for

a large chunk of the 1981/82

season and then finished

1983/84 as runners-up to

Liverpool, Southampton’s

highest ever league position,

and FA Cup semi-finalists.

That season David’s 15 goals

in 42 league games (he scored

a total of 71 goals for Saints)

meant he was deservedly

voted Player of the Year.

McMenemy had splashed out a

club record £600,000 to bring

him from his first professional

club, Middlesbrough, and

while at Ayresome Park he

had completed a run of 356

consecutive appearances and

won his first England cap (he

added two more while at The

Dell).

Ex-Saints manager, Dave

Merrington, described him as

“one of the best left-sided

players you could come across”

and there is no doubt David, or

“Spike” as he was known to his

friends, was the sort of box-tobox,

intelligent midfield player

who modern-day managers

would swoon for.

He didn’t look like a footballer,

with his waddling gait and

prematurely bald pate – his

autobiography published in

2013 was titled “The Bald

Facts” – but in his case

appearances were entirely

deceptive.

An ankle injury that refused to

heal meant his career came to

an abrupt and premature end,

but David remained connected

to the game in various guises,

most recently by being a cocommentator

on local radio.

His analysis and insightful

thoughts on the game were

as honest and uncomplicated

as he had been in his playing

days, when he would pop up

in both penalty areas, either

clearing up defensively or

gliding in on the blind side to

effortlessly beat a goalkeeper

with a clinical finish.

It was David whose inchperfect

far-post cross set up

Steve Moran for that famous

FA Cup goal at Fratton Park in

1984 and for that feat alone

the fans will never forget

“Spike”.

KEN ARMSTRONG

Ken Armstrong, who passed

away in July at the age of 63,

was a centre-half described

as “an outstanding prospect”

by then manager Lawrie

McMenemy, who had been

recommended Armstrong by

Jim Clunie, a coach at Saints

when they won the FA Cup in

1976.

At the time of Armstrong’s

arrival in 1983, Clunie was

working as manager at

Kilmarnock, where Armstrong

had played as a part-timer for

the previous six years.

With a reported fee of £25,000

– although Kilmarnock claimed

it to be nearer £60,000 – it

proved a shrewd acquisition, as

Armstrong immediately struck

up a strong pairing with Mark

Wright at the heart of defence,

conceding only two goals in the

opening eight matches of the

1983/84 season.


saints / 31

Ken Armstrong

A subsequent injury to Wright

encouraged McMenemy’s

decision to utilise the sweeper

system upon his return, with

Reuben Agboola given the

role, which meant no place for

Armstrong and he went on

loan to Notts County.

After his return, he featured

again as Saints ended up

second in the old First Division,

three points behind Liverpool,

but that proved to be his only

season with the club as he was

sold to Birmingham after a

total of 28 appearances.

He then signed for Walsall in

February 1986, but a broken

ankle finished his playing

career before he could kick a

ball for the Saddlers, and at 27

he made the decision to retire

from football.

Armstrong went on to work

in various roles in the NHS,

including as director of

operations at NHS Tayside, in

Scotland.

John Sillett

JOHN SILLETT

Club president Terry Paine

pays tribute to longstanding

friend and former manager

John Sillett, who passed away

in November 2021.

I first met John Sillett at

Waterloo Station. We’d had

a game in London while he’d

been playing for Chelsea and

was coming home for the

weekend.

That occasional rendezvous

would become a habit

and when our train got to

Southampton, I’d give him a

lift to his boyhood home, the

Lamb Inn at Nomansland,

which his widowed mother and

step-father were still running.

We became close friends but

our relationship took on a

new dimension in 1974 when

John went to Hereford United,

who’d been elected to the

Football League only in 1972, as

manager and, to his surprise, I

agreed to be his player-coach.

He surprised a lot of people, in

turn, by taking the club, in our

second season, into the then

Second Division.

That promotion was a

tremendous success for John,

a tremendous tactician and

a great motivator, qualities

that would later serve him well

at Coventry. He tempted me

home from Johannesburg to

do two seasons of coaching

at various levels and scouting

for him.

Since returning to South Africa

in 1990, I have kept in constant

touch with John and his wife

Jean – I had been best man at

their wedding – and consider

myself very lucky to have been

called his friend.

John was a man who loved life.

RON ALLISON

Of all the fans’ stories in Tie a

Yellow Ribbon, Tim Manns’s

2006 tribute to the Saints’

1976 FA Cup victory, Ron

Allison, who passed away in

July aged 90, had a unique

angle on preparation for the

final vs Manchester United.

As the Queen’s Press

Secretary, Ron had to advise

Her Majesty on her role at

Wembley. A Saints supporter

since 1945, he explained how

the royal responsibilities

would climax in “presenting

the Cup to the Southampton

captain”. Her Majesty approved

the arrangements, but added

that “Edward tells me it will

be Manchester United, not

Southampton.”

What did Edward know? The

Queen would duly present

the Cup to Southampton’s

Peter Rodrigues. Ron would

continue to follow the Saints

in his retirement, regularly

lunching at St Mary’s with exgoalkeeper

John Christie, and

would be the eulogist at John’s

2014 funeral. As for the Queen,

she would never attend a Cup

Final again.

November

06

BY Duncan Holley

Looking back at four

Saints matches played

on this date...

6th NOVEMBER 1948

The immediate post-war

years were a boom time

for attendances at football

matches and one match that

always drew big crowds, in

the then Second Division, was

the Saints vs Spurs fixture.

When Tottenham came to The

Dell in 1948 the gates were

shut 15 minutes before kick-off,

with the attendance given as

29,000. This was the season

before the famous “chocolateboxes”

were built over the

Milton Road terrace, raising the

capacity to over 30,000. One

reason interest was so high

was that Spurs were lying in

second place and Saints third,

so the stakes were high.

There were disappointed fans

still milling around outside

the locked gates when a

huge cheer rose from the

other side to let them know

their side had scored. Charlie

Wayman had done the damage

when, in the eighth minute,

he just managed to beat

Spurs’ keeper Ted Ditchburn

to the ball – although his

Two of Saints goalscorers in 1948, Charlie Wayman and Ted Bates, compete with Tottenham’s

Bill Nicholson.

effort only just trickled over

the line off the post.

In the 25th minute, Ernie Jones

levelled matters after giving

Saints full-back Alf Ramsey

the slip. (Coincidentally both

men would, the following

summer, swop clubs in a

transfer deal.) Nine minutes

later Eric Day used his pace to

dash into space and restore

Saints advantage before Ted

Bates made things safe, in the

77th minute when he headed

home George Curtis’s cross.

Saints had lined up as follows:

Black, Ramsey, Rochford,

Wilkins, Webber, Mallett, Day,

Bates, Wayman, Curtis, Grant.

(The following season’s fixtures

against Spurs attracted a

crowd of 30,240 at The Dell

and, incredibly, at White Hart

Lane an attendance of 70,302

– a record for a second-tier

match that stands to this day.)


saints / 35

6th NOVEMBER 1993

Forty-five years elapsed before

Saints celebrated another

win on this date and, surprise

surprise, the visitors were

again Tottenham Hotspur. In

front of only 16,017 spectators

Saints run out 1-0 winners

thanks to Neil Maddison’s firm

header from a Matt Le Tissier

chip. Midfielder Maddison

had become a father just

hours earlier, so there was

more than one reason to “pop

the corks” in the Maddison

household that evening.

Saints: Andrews, Kenna,

Adams, Benali, Wood,

Monkou, Le Tissier, Reid,

Dowie, Maddison, Allen.

6th NOVEMBER 2020

The last November 6th victory

achieved by Saints came just

two years ago and – whisper

it quietly – it was against

today’s visitors, Newcastle

United, during lockdown and

a Friday night fixture and

at a deserted St Mary’s.

Ché Adams put Saints 1-0 up

with a crisp volley from Theo

Walcott’s cross. Saints were

totally in command throughout

with the Guardian reporting

the visitors were “chasing

shadows” for most of the

match. Stuart Armstrong

got the crucial second goal,

pinching possesion on the

area edge before jinking

and jiggling and then

hitting a left-foot shot.

The win created a little bit

of history as that night

Saints sat on top of the

Premier League for the

first time in their history.

The team that earned that

accolade was as follows:

McCarthy, Walker-Peters,

Stephens, Vestergaard,

Bednarek, Romeu, Armstrong,

Djenepo, Walcott, Ward-

Prowse, Adams – with

Redmond and Long coming

on in the 74th and 88th

minutes respectively.

6th NOVEMBER 1999

Six years later, Saints travelled

to Villa Park. It was a hardfought

battle but the points

were won by Saints when the

late Dean Richards scored

with a far-post header after

Claus Lundekvam had flicked

on Hassan Kachloul’s corner.

Manager Dave Jones told

the Echo afterwards that

“we sensed the game was

there for the taking and

got stuck into them and we

earned everything we got”.

Saints fielded the following

eleven: Jones, Dodd, Colleter,

Lundekvam, Richards, Hughes,

Kachloul, Pahars, Solvedt,

Ripley – with Boa Morte and

Beattie coming on as subs.

goal in 1999.

ONCE

KNOWN

AT THIS

ADDRESS

Southampton . Southampton .

BY Barry Webb

I am pleased to

feature a player this

week who played in

goal for the Saints between

1987 and 1989: he is JOHN

“BUDGIE” BURRIDGE. Born in

Workington in 1951, he moved

from his hometown club to

Blackpool in 1971 – the first

step on a tour of no fewer than

29 clubs, including

Southampton and Newcastle

United. Fifteen of those clubs

were in the Football League,

and he made a total of 779

appearances.

When Budgie joined the Saints

in 1987 it became his 10th

club. Although Aberdeen had

offered him better terms, he

understandably wanted to

play First Division football

under his former Aston Villa

teammate Chris Nicholl.

Following the departure of

Peter Shilton, it seemed that

young Tim Flowers would

become the Saints’ number

one goalkeeper. Budgie had

been a mentor to Flowers

when they were together at

Wolverhampton Wanderers.

But on 3rd October 1987, when

Tim conceded four goals

against Everton at home,

first-choice goalkeeper duities

Budgie is prone as he makes a crucial save, watched by Andy Townsend.

John Burridge concentrating on the task in

hand.

passed to Budgie. He played

for the rest of the season

and most of the following

one, 1988/89. He went on to

make 75 appearances for the

Saints in all competitions.

Many fans were sorry to see

him move north in 1989 to

Newcastle United, for whom he

made 67 league appearances.

He also had two further spells

there in 1993 and 1994.

I am sure that many who

watched the Saints in those

days rued his departure

not only because of his

goalkeeping skills but also

because they would miss his

pre-match warm-up routines

which have been called

“legendary”. Some fans even

turned up early to watch his


saints / 37

routine which included backflips,

somersaults and walking

on his hands – all of which

he has claimed he learned

from watching the circus.

Budgie claims to have

introduced goalkeeper warmups

to the game although he

knew that these were frowned

upon in the upper echelons of

the game. In addition to the

warm-ups, he also claimed that

he introduced an all-weather

Latex goalkeeper gloves.

He has said that he had a

fantastic time at Southampton

but following his time

here and at Newcastle, he

pursued a kind of nomadic

existence across England

and Scotland, as player and

player-manager for both

league and non-league clubs.

He was unusual in football

in that he was teetotal and

was perhaps ahead of his

time by following strict diet

regimes: he even criticised

some players for not doing so.

Terry Venables was Budgie’s

manager when Crystal Palace

got promoted to the old First

Division. Venables told him

that if he carried on playing

as well as he had in the

promotion season he would

be likely to win an England

cap. He never did, though, and

has joked that he would have

won more than 100 caps had

he been a few inches taller.

His tour of the planet

continued in his coaching

and managerial career. His

former manager at Sheffield

United, Ian Porterfield, took

him to Oman. While on the

coaching staff of the national

football team he discovered

the 16-year-old Ali Al-Habsi,

later becoming instrumental in

the player’s transfer to Bolton

Wanderers in January 2006.

Saints and Newcastle fans won’t mistake that familiar smile at Kerala Blasters.

He also coached English

national goalkeepers Tim

Flowers, Nigel Martyn and Paul

Robinson, as well as coaching

for Al Ain Football Club in

the United Arab Emirates.

He became a pundit for several

sports channels, including

Singapore’s football channel

Starhub and he wrote regularly

in the football column of

Singapore newspaper, The

New Paper. He returned to

work for the Oman national

team as goalkeeper coach

but he left there in 2011.

Further work as a pundit

followed until he became

goalkeeping coach in

September 2015 for LionsXII

– who play in the Malaysian

Super League – and in 2016

he had a short spell at Global

FC of the United Football

League in the Philippines.

In July 2019, he was signed

as a consultant for the

goalkeeping academy of

the Indian Super League top

division club Kerala Blasters.

In April 2006 he was inducted

into the Hall of Fame at

Bloomfield Road, when it was

officially opened by former

Blackpool player Jimmy

Armfield. Organised by the

club’s Supporters Association,

Blackpool fans around the

world voted for their all-time

heroes. Five players from each

decade were inducted: Budgie

was chosen for the 1970s.

Other players who have appeared* for

the Saints and Newcastle United include

Adam Armstrong, Dave Beasant, John

Beresford, Olivier Bernard, Leon Best,

Mick Channon, Fraser Forster, Danny

Guthrie, Fitz Hall, Kevin Keegan, John

McGrath, John McGuinn, Alan Neilson,

Alan Shearer and Barry Venison.

80 YEARS A

SAINT

BY Duncan Holley

At 92 and a current

season ticket holder

in block 28 of the

Kingsland Stand, there is

every chance Phyllis Colmer

is the oldest Saints

supporter still attending

matches on a regular basis.

What is even more

impressive is she first

watched the team play in

the 1941/42 season, more

than 80 years ago.

Then her father, Percy Smith,

who was on the Saints

Supporters Club committee,

persuaded her to help him sell

raffle tickets during matches

at The Dell to help raise funds

for the club. There was no

looking back for the 12-yearold.

She went to her first

away match in January 1947,

travelling up to Newcastle

on the overnight train with

her parents to witness Saints

take a 1-0 half-time lead. But

future Saint Charlie Wayman

scored a second-half hattrick

to ruin the occasion and

make the railway journey

home seem even longer.

From then on, she hardly ever

missed a home game – even

Cup, in 1976, Phyllis colmer is kneeling, while

Mary Bates, to her left is sitting in the chiar

wearing a blue dress.

ensuring both her sons were

born in the summer close

season – and regularly travelled

to away matches, always

accompanied by Norman,

her husband of 59 years who

sadly passed away in 2012. In

fact, their last away match

together was the “bubble”

trip to Fratton Park for the

1-1 draw in December 2011.

She was at Aldershot in 1957 to

see a teenage Terry Paine score

his first goal for the club. By

then getting tickets for away

matches wasn’t a problem as

her cousin, Mary, had married

Ted Bates, the Southampton

manager, and the two families

were particularly close. Phyllis,

who had served a five-year

tailoress apprenticeship, would

replay Ted for all the tickets by

rustling him up bespoke suits.

Phyllis only stopped working

in 2018 when she was made

redundant. That still rankles

with her as she reckons she

was still very capable as a

bespoke tailor and was as fit

as a fiddle despite being in her

89th year. Her attendance at

Wembley for the Chelsea vs

Saints FA Cup semi-final that

same year backs her claim.

Her favourite all-time player is

Matt Le Tissier, although Steve

Williams, Mick Channon, Derek

Reeves and Johnny Hoskins

all get honourable mentions.

Phyllis had grown up in the

Chapel area of Southampton

in the ‘30s and has vivid

memories of her house in

Anglesea Terrace taking a

direct hit from a German

bomb which destroyed her

childhood home. She had been

at school, but her mother and

younger brothers had only

survived after diving under a

table in their air-raid shelter.

After 80-plus years of

watching the ups and downs

of Southampton Football Club,

you could say Phyllis Colmer is

something of a survivor too.

The transformation has

continued this term with

Newcastle sitting fourth. A

comfortable top-half finish

and a cup run was the public

aim in the summer.

Howe has galvanised a set

of under-performing players,

but having money to spend

following the club’s muchpublicised

takeover has also

helped. Nearly £90m was spent

in January, while this summer

former Saints left-back Matt

Targett was signed from Aston

Villa following a loan spell,

goalkeeper Nick Pope arrived

from Burnley and £32m was

splashed on Lille defender Sven

Botman. A club-record £63m

was paid for Real Sociedad

striker Alexander Isak. However,

after two goals in his first three

games, a thigh injury ruled him

out until after the World Cup.

Being fourth in the league is

no coincidence. From pressing

and long passes in behind

the defence to wing-play and

set-pieces, this Newcastle

side have clear ideas in and

out of possession. The Toon

haven’t found themselves

in such a lofty position this

deep into a Premier League

campaign since 2011/12,

when they finished fifth.

the boss:

EDDIE HOWE

ENGLISH / AGE: 44

Eddie Howe succeeded Steve Bruce as Newcastle’s head coach a

year ago this month and has already achieved legendary status

on Tyneside. He had been out of management since departing

Bournemouth in August 2020 following their relegation. Leaving

aside a brief interlude at Burnley, Howe had become synonymous

with the Cherries’ rise from the foot of the Football League. The

former Bournemouth centre-back, who had retired at the age of 29

due to a knee injury, was named their manager in December 2008.

He secured the Cherries’ league status after they had begun the

season with a 17-point penalty for failing to comply with insolvency

rules and guided them to promotion the following year. Although

Howe left to become Burnley boss midway through the 2010/11

campaign, he rejoined Bournemouth in October 2012, eventually

leading the Cherries to the Premier League for the first time in 2015.

one to watch:

MIGUEL ALMIRÓN

PARAGUAYAN / MIDFIELDER / AGE: 28

“Playing like (Miguel) Almirón” – that jibe from Jack Grealish – now

means scoring more goals than Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Salah

this season. With six goals in as many games in October, Almirón

has bagged more Premier League strikes inside 29 days as Grealish

has since his British-record move to Manchester City 15 months

ago. Almirón is an attacker reborn. His tally of seven goals this term

is already Almirón’s best return for a Premier League season. He

managed zero in 2018/19, four in 2019/20, four in 2020/21 and one

in 2021/22. The St James’ Park faithful unfurled a ‘Wor Miggy’ banner

in August to show their support for a player who is very much repaying

the faith they’ve shown in him since his arrival from Atalanta United.

It’s not just his goals that make him a fans’ favourite. “His work ethic is

just incredible,” Eddie Howe said recently.

Notes from Sam Tighe,

HEAD COACH

EDDIE

HOWE

> Targett may come back in

at left-back for Burn at some

point, but Howe seems happy

with the consistency of his

selections at the moment.

> One of Jacob Murphy or

Allan Saint-Maximin will

step in for Joelinton, who is

suspended.

> Wilson is in good form – six

goals in nine Premier League

starts this season – and is

gunning for a World Cup spot.

> Saints must be wary of

Trippier’s set-pieces, whose

effectiveness from a dead

ball rivals James Ward-

Prowse.


tactical

watch BY sam tighe

What’s the feeling

surrounding Newcastle

United this season?

Newcastle are flying high.

They come into this weekend

in fourth place in the Premier

League, meaning whispers of a

European charge have genuine

merit. They’re scoring freely,

have the league’s best defence

(just ten conceded) and have

won the hearts and minds of

St James’ Park after years in

the doldrums.

Clever recruitment over the

past 12 months has bulked up

the XI and allowed them to not

only dominate certain games,

but go toe-to-toe with some of

the best in the division too.

Consistency is key – they

won five games in October,

equalling a club record – and

it’s epitomised by Sven

Botman, who joined in the

summer, has played 12 games

for the club and is yet to lose.

Many of these Newcastle

players are playing the best

football of their lives, with

the likes of Joelinton and

Miguel Almirón reaffirming the

importance of confidence in

football.

What makes them tick?

It’s perhaps more of a who

than a what, as although

Newcastle have been excellent

as a unit so far this season,

there’s a man in the middle

pulling all the strings: Bruno

Guimarães (right).

A marquee pickup from Lyon

last winter and an Olympic

gold medalist too, Bruno’s a

pass-master who sits at the

base of the Magpies’ midfield

and pings the ball to a variety

of places.

There’s a particular emphasis

in Eddie Howe’s tactics of

inviting opposition pressure in

order to play over it, into the

runs of Almirón and Co. The

centre-backs chip in with a few

balls, but really the scheme is

built around Bruno’s accuracy

over distance.

He’ll provide Southampton

with the classic conundrum

of whether to close him down

(and risk exposing the defence)

or standing off him (and

letting him dictate).

MEMORABLE

MOMENT

Stuart Armstrong’s goal

wraps up a 2-0 win, as

Saints hit the top-flight

summit for the first time in

the Premier League era on

this day in 2020.

How can Saints hurt them?

Paradoxically, the tactic

Newcastle use to bait

opponents into opening up a

weakness could well count as

their own Achilles heel.

Newcastle are a high-pressing

team. That approach to the

game, as Saints know more

than most, comes with a set

of risks that balance out the

reward. If the pressure fails

or is played through, there’s

a lot of space in behind the

defensive line to potentially

exploit.

It’s for that reason so many

clubs favour athleticism

and recovery speed in their

centre-backs nowadays, but

in this sense, the Magpies

go against the grain: Fabian

Schär and Sven Botman can be

vulnerable against raw pace,

while Dan Burn is certainly the

only 6’7” left-back about.

Heung-Min Son escaped in

behind a number of times

in Tottenham’s defeat to

Newcastle last week, while

Leon Bailey caused a few

issues for Aston Villa last

weekend too.

If Saints can catch them high

up the pitch, they can be

turned; Adam Armstrong’s

straight-line speed and Ché

Adams’s work in the channels

could be hugely important

here.

Patience and perseverance

may also be key, as Newcastle

have conceded eight of their

ten goals in the second half of

games – something that may

be symbolic of their highintensity

approach.

Franny Benali

It was good to see

Saints get an

impressive point

against Arsenal in our last

game at St Mary’s. It was no

less than we deserved. After

Arsenal’s start, I thought it

was going to be a tough day

for us but we managed to turn

it around in the second-half

with Stuart Armstrong’s

equaliser.

The resilience from the

defensive unit was good and

Lyanco caught the eye – his

display was fabulous to see.

From my own experience, there

is often a fine line in football

between the passion and

aggression you can play with

to overstepping the mark.

You could certainly see the

Brazilian’s passion, desire

and commitment to win. He

came under some criticism

from the Arsenal fans, but

our own crowd loved him.

Our game at Crystal Palace

really was huge for us. Our

three previous results had been

good and it would have been

ideal to follow up that run

with another positive result.

The fact that we lost now puts

some pressure and added

importance on the Newcastle

and Liverpool fixtures.

Clearly there was an effort

to bring a goalscorer into our

squad during the summer

window. It didn’t happen and

we are seeing the pressure that

is putting on others. I’m sure

this is an area that will have

to be addressed in January.

It is not nice seeing us in the

position we are in the table

with the six-week World Cup

break coming. There are still

three matches to be played in

all competitions and we need

to build momentum again

and release some tension.

WE NEED TO

BUILD MOMENTUM

AGAIN AND

RELEASE SOME

TENSION.

This afternoon’s clash with

Newcastle will be a challenge.

They have been in very strong

form this season, losing just

once in the Premier League

and conceding the least

amount of goals. Despite these

facts, no team is unbeatable

and it’s all about how we go

out and perform on the day.

We also have our cup fixture

against Sheffield Wednesday

in midweek. That will be a

chance to switch to a different

mindset, progress in another

competition, and hand a

chance to some other players.

Supporters on Twitter may

have seen a recent poll I ran

asking whether the Benali

moustache should make a

return. The results gave a

resounding yes, so I have

little choice now – much

to the disappointment of

my wife!

I will be signing up to

participate in Movember, a

great cause to support and

raises awareness around

men’s health issues such as

prostate cancer, testicular

cancer and men’s suicide.

Keep an eye on my social

media channels for updates.

It was also good to be filming

at our Staplewood Training

Ground in the past week

for an upcoming Premier

League Productions feature

with Mohammed Salisu –

I’m sure you will enjoy it

when it gets televised.

Lastly, this will be my final

programme column before

our Boxing Day meeting

with Brighton, so I would

like to wish every Saints

fan a very Happy Christmas

well ahead of time!
