Southampton Greatest Games: Saints\' Fifty Finest Matches

    By

    From causing one of the biggest shocks in FA Cup final history by beating Manchester United in 1976 to promotion to the Premier League in 2012, here are 50 of the club's most glorious, epochal and thrilling games of all! Expertly presented in evocative historical context, and described incident-by-incident in atmospheric detail, Southampton Greatest Games offers a terrace ticket back in time, from the bygone days of Ted Bates and Lawrie McMenemy to the club's rise from League One back to the top flight via administration and near bankruptcy and their highest-ever Premier League finish under Ronald Koeman's masterful management. An irresistible cast list of club legends - including the great Matt Le Tissier, record appearance-maker Terry Paine, Wembley heroes Mick Channon and Peter Osgood, promotion winners Rickie Lambert and Jose Fonte and former European Footballer of the Year Kevin Keegan - comes to life in these thrilling tales of goalscoring feats, great comebacks, Wembley glory and the odd glorious yet crushing disappointment. In all, a journey through the highlights of Saints' history which is guaranteed to make any fan's heart swell with pride.
