Saints On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from Southampton's rollercoaster past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable red-and-white diary - with an entry for every day of the year. From the club's Victorian formation as St Mary's Church of England Young Men's Association through to the Premier League era, the Saints faithful have witnessed promotions, relegations and Great Escapes, breathtaking Cup runs and triumphs - all featured here. Timeless greats such as Ron Davies, Matt Le Tissier and Mike Channon, Bill Rawlings, George O'Brien and Terry Paine all loom larger than life.

Revisit 23rd March 1898, and a controversial, blizzard-hit Cup semi at the old Crystal Palace. 1st May 1976: Saints 1-0 Man U in the FA Cup Final. Or 6th August 2005, when Theo Walcott became the Saints' youngest ever player, forgetting his shirt in the excitement!
