Our Southampton fans here inside the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a little respite from the weekly rigours of the Premier League to try their hand at getting to Wembley for the second time in two seasons.
This season, the Saints have found themselves in the bottom three and, not being able to find the back of the net on a regular basis, life in red and white has proven really rather frustrating of late.
