Saints aiming for top ten

Chelsea at home on New Year's Day is an attractive game so I'm sure the fans will enjoy that one, and we've got Manchester United at home at the end of the season.

Hopefully we've got something to play for that day and we're in the top half of the table - that's certainly the plan.

There are plenty of games to look forward to and I can't wait to start pre-season now.

Everyone knows we owe them one after both results last season.

We've got to settle a few scores but we'll go into those games with open minds and try not to think about that too much.
