FACup Final 2003

Saturday, 17th May

Millennium Stadium, Cardiff


Arsenal 1-0 Southampton

Pires 38’

2003 saw our second FA Cup Final in my lifetime, but unfortunately not as happy a result as in 1976

We played Arsenal at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff and lost. Great day, great stadium, shame about the football.

Clicking on the picture below will open a gallery of pictures from a group of Saints fans on the day including our very own spot and vasco

The teams line up in the Millenium Stadium
Line up before leaving home. Vasco, Dog, Steg, Drew, McK and Spot
Spot, Steg, Drew & Vasco in Cardiff centre
A modest cigar with a pint
Drew trying to impersonate wee Gordan Strachan
Vasco sporting his new Saints on tour t-shirt
Dog has a go at the Strachan impersonation
And Steg has his turn at impersonating
Vasco shows what he thinks of Steg
One step higher and Spot will need the oxygen mask
The teams and crowd are warming up
Look at all those Saints fans!
