It was a long time coming, but Southampton picked up their first win of their League One campaign on Saturday.

This came after I read an interesting and philosophical blog from the Daily Echo.

Football fans are extremely fickle and Simon Carter regretfully underlines the situation is no different at St. Mary's. Writing last week, Carter condemned the minority of Saints fans who were already calling for the end of Alan Pardew.

Carter said "fans should remember that clubs in League One aren’t a bunch of jokers and Saints have no divine right to beat the likes of Brentford and Stockport."

Even if Saints didn't beat Yeovil on Saturday, Pardew should be nowhere near the end of his tenure at St. Mary's, and Carter's article still stands.

In the cold light of day, Pardew hardly had a pre-season with Southampton, eight new players have been brought in to try to get Southampton back on it's feet, not forgetting their 10-point penalty for entering administration in the summer. It was never going to be easy.

However, amongst all these teething problems, we must stop feeling sorry for ourselves and build on Saturday's win.
