After joining the Football League in 1920, fans of Southampton would have to wait 56 years before winning their first, and only major honour to date. After failing in 2 FA Cup finals previously, The 1976 final would see Southampton face tough opposition in Manchester United. The Saints were massive underdogs but a Bobby Stokes strike would see Lawrie McMenemy’s side win 1-0 and lift the FA Cup at Wembley.
Two years on, McMenemy guided The Saints to the top flight of English football with the late Alan Ball captaining the side. Southampton would become a mainstay in Division 1 attracting top players to the club including the current ’European Footballer of the Year’ Kevin Keegan.
Southampton became founding members of the Premier League in 1992. Striker Matt Le Tissier was key in keeping The Saints in the top flight for many years, scoring a collection of memorable goals which still get repeated to this day. It was only fitting that Le Tissier would score the final goal in the final minute at The Dell in 2001 against Arsenal before Southampton would relocate to the new St Mary’s Stadium.
After reaching the FA Cup final in 2003, Southamptons fortunes would take a turn for the worse. In 2005, and just days after resigning from bitter rivals Portsmouth, Saints appointed Harry Redkapp as manager in a bid for survival. It was a move that angered both sets of supporters, but it would be Portsmouth who ended up smiling after Redknapp failed in his mission and Southampton were relegated after 27 successive seasons in the top flight.
After a further relegation in 2009, Nigel Adkins would take over in 2010 with Southampton in League One. Adkins would work wonders and achieve back to back promotions, gifting the Saints a return to the Premier League in 2012. After a steady start, the country was shocked when Adkins was sacked and replaced by Mauricio Pochettino. Pochettino has however installed an attractive style of football which has seen Southampton record wins over Chelsea and Liverpool. The gamble on Pochettino paid off and Southampton comfortably survived, a tough second season lies ahead but if they carry on where they left off, The Saints should have nothing to worry about.
