Southampton and Football

I went to Southampton on Saturday to see Ipswich play them in the FA Cup.

I’ve always had rather a low opinion of Southampton.  Not that I’ve been there very often, but I had great difficulty once getting a gluten-free meal and that clouded my view of the place.

I was surprised that the city had medieval walls, which contain the longest stretch in England, and you can walk along the top of them in places.  Like many English cities, it has a ruined church, Holyrood, that was bombed by the Luftwaffe in the Second World Wat and has been left as a memorial sailors of the Merchant Navy.

Let’s not talk about the football.
