Southampton became Vice-Champion of Premier League

The second position in the Premiership is the great achievement for such club as Southampton. Especially, if you recollect that we were media predicted to become 12th.

The last three matches were all difficult and unpredictable Confused.

The last three matches were all difficult and unpredictable

My guys managed to gain the victory over Liverpool loosing 1:2 during the game. Thanks to hat-trick hero and our new star-forward - Jelle Vossen. Then there was the equal game with The Red Devils: we opened the score, Rooney made it equal and on the last minutes Massimo Donati could tear out victory but the ball after his average distance strike got at the post. In the last one with Aston Villa we got defeated having a lot more goal moments than opponent. Unfortunately. Though Southampton almost hadn't chances of getting the title and became the 2nd after The Red Devils as a result.

Frankly speaking, I'm proud of the result and going to set up new target for the next season - the title of Premier League! And, of course, I'm looking forward to the start of Southampton in the Champions League Cowboy

The best defender is Fazio who scored a lot of goals with his head during corners and freekicks. Perhaps he is the biggest surprise of the season for me as club manager!

And the best midfielder and MVP is Massimo Donati with the highest amount of assists in the Premiership:
