Saints in Europe
Having safely negotiated their first home and away fixtures in the Europa League Qualifying Round 3, Saints drew Danish Champions, Midtjylland in the Play Off round. If you have no idea whey they ply their trade, there is a map below.
The only other English teams in the Europa League are Liverpool and Spurs, as West Ham have managed to get themselves knocked out. Liverpool and Spurs are not joining the competition until the league stage.
The last time we qualified for Europe was of course in 2003, after losing to Arsenal in that years FACup Final.
Unfortunately, after drawing 1-1 at St.Mary’s, Saints crashed out of the competition, losing 1-0 on a wet night in Denmark.
There will be other times
Where is Midtjylland FC?
Saints will be playing them in the Europa League play off round, at home on Thursday 20th August, with the return leg in Herning, a week later on the 27th August.
Saints 8-0 Sunderland
Saturday 18th October 2014
That was an afternoon that will stay with me for as long as I live. Simply unbelievable. As I said in the IBO Forum that evening, I walked down the stairs and out of the stadium in a daze. I was actually incoherent, until we got at least two hundred yards down the road and then I just couldn't stop smiling like an idiot.
In short it is a wonderful time to be a Saints fan
A word of warning though, it runs to just over 1 hour 27 minutes, so be prepared to settle down for a while...
