Hello all and welcome back to a very special match thread by Saintsfcfan. I'm going to be totally honest here, there was a significant rush of pride from just typing up the title. If you had told anyone in 2010 that at any point in the future, the winners of that year's JPT would take on the then winners of the Champions League in European competition, you'd have been laughed at. During the summer draw however, there was only ever one team that Saints fans wanted. This Thursday, Saints will take on Inter Milan at the San Siro and have a definite chance of winning. What a thought that is. Look how far we have come in the past 6/7 years. It's a quite a change from playing away Hartlepool on a cold winter night. As that drab 0-0 was played out, no one could ever imagined what Saints are about to take on on Thursday. Despite whatever happened in the summer, whatever was said, I feel great pride at that fact a player who played on that night in northern England, Jose Fonte, will most likely be leading us out under the floodlights of the San Siro. I'm sure many fans have dreamed of possible scenarios and goals since the draw was made, my own person own being of disbelief as Saints winning 1-0 in the dying seconds as Shane Long runs through unchallenged. I know for many of us this week will go slowly. Now onto the night itself. Saints go into the game in the back of 7 games unbeaten, have conceded 1 in all that time (albeit it was a dodgy pen). Leading man Charlie Austin has scored 7 goals in that time as well, despite saints inability to convert many of their chances. In the Europa League they have beaten Sparta Prague 3-0 in an easy night at St Mary's, whilst claiming a good away point to Hapoel Be'er Sheva. Inter Milan have been decent in the league but seem to be a completely different animal in a competition they clearly want out of. They have been convincly beaten by both the sides Saints have already faced. In terms of belief and form, they are their for the taking. My likely line-up: Forster Martina Fonte VVD McQueen Davis Hojbjerg Romeu Tadic Austin Redmond Bench: McCarthy, Yoshida, JWP, Clasie, Boufal, Rodriguez, Long. Prediction: Its going to be a memorable night. 2-1 Saints. If any player reads this remember to wear that shirt with pride. For saints fans, this is arguably the biggest match in our history so get out there and give your all! COYR!!!
