One thought on “NUFC news round up – Rafa delivers great news & ex-NUFC reject set for shock Man Utd move

  1. I am a devoted fan, and former successful journalist, but occasionally your endeavours to seek an exciting story fringe on the ridiculous. The ‘shock horror revelation’ that Southampton have only won one home game this season is hardly in the Pulitzer nominations, being a matter of public record, and league table declaration. Come-on, less ‘shock horror and more in-depth analysis.
