Anybody who has any interest in football will probably know that the saints are in trouble at the moment and are probably having their worst season ever. I have been a saints fan for a few years now and only recently discoverd this website. My first impression of the site was a good one and i soon found myself whizzing around the site like a proffesional and after a few minuites of exploring the site found it extremley easy to find exactly what i was looking for.
As you enter the site you are instantly drawn to the latest news that is displayed in the center of the screen and usually displays any club news up to a few days old and is updated whenever a new story breaks. On the left hand side of the screen is the main menu but i will explain this in detail in a moment. On the right hand side of the screen you have all the links and advertising and a few sponsorship messages. Right lets get on with the main menu sections.
Home. This section basicly acts as a shortcut back to the main screen wich is usefull if you hate having to press the back button numerous times (very usefull).
News. The news section is a more in depth look at the club news with a great archive feature wich lets you look at news from almost a season ago. This feature also gives you transfer news injurys, red and yellow cards and results.
Tickets. This section contains purchase prices information on travel supporters clubs car parking information and also information for disabled facilities that are offered for example wheelchair access.
1st Team. All the information you could possibly need including fixtures, leuge tables, 1st team players, squad profiles, leuge statistics, team statistics, top scorers and red carded players.
Reserves. In this section you get all the reserve team fixtures, leuge tables and squad profiles for the non regular players and the youngsters trying to break into the first team.
Acadamy. This section gives you an introduction to the southampton youth acadamy and the staff who make it work. The under 16 and the under 18 team sections lists fixtures rusults leuge tables . The first year third year and third year scholarship students are all listed who are the young players who have shown the most promise in the academy.
Women. This is the southampton fc womens team. This section includes the fixtures table leuge table and also the womens first team and reserves.
Club info. this is the bulk of the information you might want to know Including coaching staff,club history, past players, tranfers in and out , jobs at Southampton fc, stadium details, supporters clubs, and annual finances. It also contains a section called where are they now wich is a link to another website that has been created by former saints legends Matt Le Tissier and Francis Benali that is dedicated to players who have retired from the game and sheds a bit of light into what they do in retirment. A small fee is charged to sighn up for the service (5 quid) but i think it is worth it especially as i am a saints fan.
Insurance. This is the sponsor companies section wich offers insurance for for pets, motor insurance and other things to be honest i dident look at this section for very long as i wanted to get back to the interesting part.
Saints in the community. This is the section that displays all the good things and charity work they do for the local community including visiting schools the after school program and the Racism just ain't saintly campaighn wich is part of the lets kick racism out of football campaighn that a lot of you will be familiar with.
The Saint. This is the official radio station of Southampton fc and broadcasts all matches live and also plays some good tunes from the past and present and is also presented by former players.
Fanzone. Free downloads are available here like wallpaper screensavers and pictures. It also has a games section but when i tried they were not working so i was a little dissapointed.
This just about sums the wbsite up and hopfully anyone intersted should check it out you may be pleasently surprised as it is easy to use and very informative. The wbsite also contains an online store for all your merchandising needs. I hope this helps anyone out there who reads it.
Heres hoping that the Saints can pull together and get out of the bottom three before it is too late.
Lol - As a "Pompey" fan, I probably shouldn't even be reading this !! In fact, I'd probably be lynched next time I step foot in the Ty Stand at Fratton Park. However, in my defence, I rated the review as "VH" as you have reviewed the Saints website, rather than the team itself - (the 5* rating should have given that away lol).

This sounds like a good football site, not one I have looked at but will have a gander.
