Kickoff of Newcastle United's opening match of the 2015-16 season is coming. Southampton have made their way back to England following their victory over Vitesse Arnhem and will take the pitch at St. James' Park in just over 24 hours. Continuing with our own preparations for the match, we have exchanged questions and answers with SBN's Southampton blog St. Mary's Musings. Managing Editor Jake Hughes was kind enough to sit down with us fresh off his trip to support the Saints in Arnhem.
CHN: After another successful season, you've sold off another couple of massive pieces. Is that easier to swallow when the process has been successful to this point?
CHN: The Europa League can be a cruel reward for excellence. Are you confident in the depth of your squad with the added fixture load?
CHN: From an outside perspective, it looks like you're a little light at CB specifically - is that an incorrect assessment?
CHN: You guys have scored goals for fun this preseason. Are you confident the goals will keep flowing in the Premier League?
CHN: Fraser Forster is obviously a massive loss. Who looks most set to fill in and how confident are you that they will be able to minimize the drop-off at the position?
CHN: Which of your new signings is creating the most excitement within the fan base?
CHN: Can we have Dusan Tadic?
CHN: Can Matt LeTissier do this?
SMM: I have no idea what this link entails but I don't want to click off this email on my mobile in case I lose everything. But, yes
(Ed. note: nuh uh no way.)
CHN: What are your predictions for Southampton this season (PL, EL, Cups)?
