Southampton are a shitbag club, always have been.
In 1977/78 they had already won promotion heading into the last game of the season, a home game against 3rd placed Tottenham.
Tottenham needed a draw to go up with them, which would mean Brighton could not be promoted.
Southampton had an excellent record at The Dell, and had only failed to score at home once all season.
Them and Spurs played out a farcical 0-0 draw, at a walking pace, with no shots on goal.
When Lawrie McMenemy, the Southampton manager, was interviewed after the game he just gave a wry smile and said how happy they were to be promoted alongside a great club like Tottenham.
