Southampton look like a decent Premier League force again, and the Saints in the Tavern are loving it…
After another Summer of departures from both players and manager Ronald Koeman, our local Saints fans were concerned that it could be a long season this year and early signs suggested it would be.
The club struggled for goals and wins but in more recent times they have managed to do both and now look like they’ll have a comfortable season under Claude Puel.
