Good to see a rare win! Good luck to Bournemouth for rest of the season. Just glad we did not let them win this one after Cook's nonsense comments a few weeks back about Bournemouth owing Southampton a beating after practically relegating them last season'! I think the Cherries probably got relegated for being poor for most the year, not that one game the Saints outplayed them anyway

Comfortable win which, despite the few places between them, just shows the gulf between the leagues.

Nice to see Southampton play well, and still put out their best squad. Normally, that might be a problem in the PL due to fixtures, but the two week break helps them. I'd say it again, but it won't happen, but please kick on and ensure Survival, Southampton! If you don't, then you'd be incredibly lucky to survive. Please don't get too careless as you are doing well in FA Cup, and 7 points safe!

Thanks Saints. We can all enjoy the rest of the weekend with a smile on our faces for the first time in what seems an eternity. If only Redmond could play like he has today every week the fans wouldn’t give him such a hard time. He has got it in locker but he doesn’t perform week in week out.
Hope we can keep this up against Burnley and get another 3 points on the board in the PL.

You seem to be somewhat confused about Southampton's FA Cup final win. Being a Manchester United fan I remember only too well, and with great disappointment, that Bobby Stokes scored the goal to beat United and take the cup home to The Dell.
United had been far and away the favourites so the bookies must have lost a mint.

Redmond was unlucky not to get a hat trick, and had a great game. Always impressed by Ward-Prowse's effort and consistent performances. Walker-Peters is looking like a decent player again too! Let's hope Liverpool don't come knocking for him!

Redmond always plays far better when we quickly move the ball forward.
Putting him in a team who put their foot on the ball, then pass sideways, or backwards, is a total waste of time and his talent.
He thrives on direct football.

okay. Makes sense, but don't know if owners really care about that. Some owners(Abramovich) was notoriously known for his quick trigger in sacking managers regardless of money, or injuries.

Saints were certainly in the FA Cup final in 2003, but sadly didn't win it.

Never in doubt. Woodgate's Bournemouth didn't have a clue. Be interesting to see how saints fair against a better team.

No that was Ipswich in 1976 beating Arsenal 3-2 in FA Cup Final. Think Alan Sunderland scored the winner in injury time.
Southampton were in the League Cup final in ‘76 losing 1-0 to Man Utd with a Bobby Stokes own goal. Think that would explain your confusion.

I hope you got some free Papa Johns pizza from losing that cup final a couple of days ago?

It wont be the Saints first ever FA cup final, I've got a photo of me and Lawrie McMenamy standing with it when they won it in '76.

I have a photo of me and Lawrie McMenamy and a Bigfoot all sitting on the back of the Loch Ness Monster holding the FA Cup in 1976.
Beat that!
