Some mornings I look like I have.
Well that is encouraging! That's what happens when you win the semifinal, yes? And as that is what is going to happen, glad to see he's on board!! Just need the other 10 or so that Ralph picks to have the same mindset.
So were Liverpool, Wolves and Arsenal we had, will have good enough form on the day.
Saints have not conceded a goal on their way to the semi-finals, and knocked out the holders Arsenal along the way.
But the Gunners made a lot of changes for that tie, as did Wolves when they played Southampton in the fifth round, and I think it's fair to say they have had quite a relatively easy route to the semi-finals.
Lawro's prediction: 2-1
There’s at least 5 of us in the prediction league saying a Leicester win.
Would love to see us all proved wrong.
At least 5 of you obviously haven't heard the news then that I'm winning us the cup!
We're on the march with @MorgansBitOnTheSchneid Army, we're all going to Wembley, and we'll really shake them up when we win the FA Cup, because Southampton are the greatest football team
We shallll not, we shall not be moved, we shalllll not, we shall not be moved, because we're going to win the F A Cup! We shall not be moved
COYRRRRRRRRRR!! Cup Semi Weekend starts NOW!
On when the Saints....
(to be continued ....)
My money is on us having a Che 'titanic' moment on Sunday
Can you get all 15 inside the time limit? I got 14. Couldn't get the penultimate one.

As others have said, if we're not up for this as fans then there's something seriously amiss. I will confess though that I'd planned a beneath the covers/settee hiding watch and hoped that the nice weather would keep my wife out in the garden, but then my 12 year old grandson decided that he desperately wanted to watch it with me. Bless him, he's a Liverpool fan but has Saints as his 'other team' and even owns a range of Saints shirts which he wears for football training to the bemusement of his Evertonian coach.
So tomorrow I will be watching al fresco in my son's garden where they've set up large screen and fire-pit surrounded by totally loyal Liverpool fans who will be Saints-for-the-day. I watched the Real Madrid/Liverpool European Final with a huge group of Liverpool fans, including close family, in a brewery - it's true and yes it was a well organised piss-up - and had to cope with their post match cries of "We'll win it next year". I know that there will be similarities - my disappointment for them will be reflected in them tomorrow if we lose - but there is, of course, a major difference in that shout. As I said to a United fan on the train home after the EFL final, he would have forgotten the score by Wednesday if they'd lost, but had we won that Saints team would have been immortalized.
So tomorrow is huge. But isn't it why we support a team, for moments like this? I'm going to not think about the success teams for whom this another match. I'm going to think about friends who would give their right arms to be playing in an FA Cup semi-final. Friends who for all their lives have supported Chester, Wrexham, Port Vale or Shrewsbury. Realistically, Saints will have other chances for a moment in the sun, albeit not as frequently as Liverpool or the Manchesters. But we've got this one now. Enjoy, everyone.
10/15 here - as usual I did better on the non Saints related questions :/
Sounds to me like your GS is a Saints fan and just protects himself emotionally with the Liverpool pretence
We need to win this to catch him in our web of elation and heartbreak. Once you’re in you can never get away
On a dark Northam highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of Harp Lager, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There it stood through the doorway;
I heard the chapel bell
And I was thinking to myself,
"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell"
Then they lit up the floodlights and it showed me the way
There were voices in the Chapel Stand,
I thought I heard them say...
Welcome to the Stadium of St Marys ...
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave
Leicester should win by at least a couple, but it’s the magic of the cup so I think it will be close but Leicester still win. Battling it out for the honour of getting battered by Man City in the final
It's all about individuals 'showing up' IMO. There are a lot of players with something to prove.
For Leicester, Maddison will want to come back from his COVID suspension with a bang whilst Vardy will see this as possibly his last chance of a cup winners medal.
With Iheanacho on top form, it'll be the key defenders that need to make sure they 'turn up' for Saints - I'm quite sure we'll create plenty of chances at the the other end. So even more so now, I think we should play Salisu (in place of Diallo) in the Romeu role so he can drop back and protect the CBs when required. Can Vesty prove it's the early season Jan that is the real one?
Anything is possible....I may yet be Miss World. We weren't expected to get past Liverpool over 2 legs to reach the League Cup Final as one example. We would need to be at our best....something we only manage rarely these days. I'm hoping for a good game where we at least score a goal or two, but reluctantly can only see a loss. COYR
In the first leg of that Liverpool semifinal, which no-one has ever set to music from Titanic, the starting lineup comprised just 3 of tomorrow’s likely team, one of whom scored the winner. Would be nice if Nathan could repeat the feat tomorrow.
Ill just give you the one word response my father in law would to this post:
