People here are getting far too hot under the collar over these two losses[/quote]

We are even though most of us expected the outcome. I suppose what is difficult to come to terms with is the confirmation of just how far short Saints are in a competiton of this quality. It is especially hard for those of us of a certain age who readily recall Saints at their peaks being equal to any side in Europe. Add to that the raised expectations caused by a marked improvement in performances at domestic level and we are brought down to earth with a bump. Perhaps the bitterest pill of all to swallow is the realisation that, for reasons all outlined many times, there seems to be absolutely b.....r all we can do about it ![/quote]

It is all about perspective, money talks. We have different league structures, different funding and funding rules.

exactly right. Quite simply it isn't a level playing field, an alternative to breaching the salary rules would be if relegation from the Prem was scrapped, and that league regarded as a second priority, then carefully manage the squad so that a full strength team is only fielded during European matches. To extract positives I expect the management will be picking up learning points from the last two matches, sometimes you need to take a step back to move forward, the tricky part is keeping spirits high. I very much am holding the faith and believe that we will be top of the domestic tree this year. COYS!
