Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to express their anger and frustration at a recent Twitter post from the club’s official account.
The tweet takes supporters to a ‘Monday Briefing‘ article, in which the club attempts to sell tickets to the Christmas event and home fixtures against Watford and Norwich – fans will also see an image with scarves reading ‘We March On’ as the first thing that appears on the page.
While this is merely just a standard club update that many football teams do, the timing is all wrong from Southampton.
After watching their side recently lose 9-0 at St Mary’s, and slip to within just a point of 20th-place Norwich, the south coast side should probably avoid trying to ram more purchasable goods and empty motivational shouts such as ‘We March On’ down the fans’ throats.
One supporter said that perhaps the fans could instead go and watch the Board of Directors be shown a PowerPoint presentation on “management responsibility and collective working”.
Another fan said that they’re not sure if this is what supporters want to be seeing right now.
Let’s take a look at some more of the Twitter reaction…
I don’t think the players should be enjoying Christmas with the fans, after all it’s more of a privilege for them to meet the very people who spend their money to get cold, wet and see no effort made on the pitch! they shouldn’t have a Christmas party either, rewards are earnt!!

Perhaps we fans could watch the Directors be given a PowerPoint presentation on management responsibility and collective working. That might work.

Not sure this is what fans want to be seeing at the moment. Love my club but not happy with the way it is being run and who is running it.
