Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I think Saints have a great 1-18, some great youngsters and prospects in there and will be tough to beat.

Like all clubs they have had their share of dud overseas forwards - really depends how they perform

The likes of Sione Mata'utia is highly rated but inconsistent (bit like Peter)
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

They were lucky with injuries in 2020, if they get their fair share in 2021 I don't think the depth and quality of that squad will be good enough to win cups. However, I do agree about your view on 1-18.

I would like think even without looking at our 2021 squad numbers, we have a good blend of youth and experience to match if not dominate all teams next season, (including Stains), especially our matchday 1-17.

I would say the only position we lack strength in depth currently is wing.

They were even luckier with the bounce of the ball and 50/50 decisions in the GF
