Southampton fans didn’t have a lot to cheer about after their loss on the weekend to Newcastle which also saw their winger Moussa Djenepo receive a straight red card in the first half. (Premier League)
However, a positive from the game was the atmosphere created and a lot of fans are talking on social media, hoping that their fanbase will continue to support the club in a similar fashion for their next fixture against Norwich City. The fans knew how crucial the game was and tried to give the players all the support they needed, and this support even earned praise from manager Ralph Hasenhuttl after the match.
Southampton clearly heave loyal supporters, pushing a team that have gone from battling for a top ten position in the Premier League to fighting for survival in English football’s top flight.
Take a look at what fans have been saying about the atmosphere below…

After the loss to Newcastle yesterday I feel:
– proud of the performance by 10 men for 3/4 of the match!
– proud of the fans making the atmosphere the best at St Mary’s this season.
– proud of Ralph he did all he could with the 10 men.
A defeat I can easily take.#saintsfc

Repeat after me, yesterday’s atmosphere was the best it’s been for a few seasons, with Northam, kings land north and most parts of the ground joining in, that’s how it should be every week #SaintsFC

Hopefully that performance from McCarthy will shut the boo boys up for a while. Didn’t deserve to lose today. Great team effort and amazing atmosphere.
We have a good gaffa. Good team spirit but losing a few games hopefully shows board we need a strong summer. #saintsfc
