Many Southampton fans were left saying the same thing after the club officially announced their Official Bottled Water Partner on social media on Wednesday.
The Saints confirmed that they had agreed a deal with One Water, who will now supply all bottled water to the club. This will see the single-use plastic still water bottles previously used at St. Mary’s being replaced by 100 per cent recyclable One Water RPET bottles (southamptonfc.com).
Frankly, most Southampton supporters were not too fussed by the actual announcement however several all made a similar joke in response to the tweet. It was worded as though the club had made a new signing and many fans reacted by asking whether One Water could play in defence.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have struggled at the back this season, indeed they have conceded a ridiculous 48 goals in just 26 Premier League matches, only Aston Villa (50) have shipped more (BBC Sport). The Saints also famously conceded nine times in one match earlier in the campaign as they lost 9-0 against Leicester City (Sky Sports).
It is therefore understandable why their fans were making flippant comments about their defence in response to the announcement, here are some of the best replies…
Can it play as CB?

I’ve never been more thrilled. As a youngster I used to wonder when we’d take that leap and secure an official bottled water partner. I’m over the moon!
