The Championship 2011/12 - Southampton

The Championship 2011/12 - Southampton
Club - Southampton

Founded - 1885

Nickname - The Saints

Ground - St Mary's Stadium (Capacity: 32,689)

Manager - Nigel Adkins

When we face each other? - Sat 22nd October (H) Sat 14th April (A)

Last Season Finish - 2nd - League One - Promoted

Season Preview - Similarly to Leeds, Southampton have had a fall from grace in the past 10 years, partly down to financial troubles in the past few years.

They suffered relegation to the Championship in 2005 and were relegated again in 2009 but did revive themselves in 2011 as they won promotion back to the Championship under Nigel Adkins.

I feel Southampton have more than enough to stay in the division again and have a manager that had good enough experience in this division. They also have some good players in Lalana and Lambert but I feel they need more squad depth to go that one step further.

My Prediction - 12th
