Saints and JayRod in FA Cup Clash!

Burnley will travel to Southampton in the first week of January for the Third Round of the FA Cup. The last time these two clubs faced each other was over a century ago in 1908 when the Saints won 2-1 at Turf Moor.

This will not be the draw that the Clarets would have wanted considering the Premier League club are currently 8th in the table and have been as high as 3rd this season. The tie though does set up the intriguing prospect of seeing Jay Rodriguez play against his former club. The now England international moved down to Hampshire in the summer.

Terrible draw really..wont be going!
Dan the spam? tough tie maybe get a draw and bring them back to the turf.
Not a good draw at all.

Fewer games in the FA Cup, fewer chances of injuries to our tiny squad. Could be a good thing for our Prem aspirations, Every cloud and all that.
Long weekend on Jay Rod's luxury yacht? Chance for Danny to impress a watching Roy Hodgson?

Good draw for those of us based down sarf. Sets me up nicely for my trip to Yeovil and follows my visit to Wigan the previous week too!
