But it`s just typical that, after months of tedium served up, last night Saints apparently played very well - there was a buzz about them, a passion and commitment which has been sadly lacking for too long. Don`t know the cause of this transformation, but I do wonder if it has anything to do with the departure of George Burley to manage Scotland.
So I missed a good game but, guess what? Despite hammering the Canaries for much of the game, it was Norwich who won it with a single goal scored on the stroke of half time. Saints hit the post three times, Stern John (he of the birth in the back end of a boat - pictured below) missed a second half penalty which would have seen Saints draw level, oh and Gregory Vignal broke his arm.
On the subject of Stern John, I can`t help wondering if he has siblings named Bow and Midships.
(Anyway, I`m just wondering what it is I might have done to deserve such disaffection from Head Office . Maybe something in a former life? Maybe Glenn Hoddle could help? Then again, maybe not.)
