How Long Can Southampton Realistically Keep This Run Going?

We figured that, by the turn of the year, we'd have a better idea of what exactly Southampton were. Are they a real threat to the Premier League's giants? Are they a club that could hang on to their top-four place? Or is their hot first half of the season a blip, a bit of good fortune that would sooner or later peter… » 1/09/15 12:50pm 1/09/15 12:50pm
