Every week now, we end up saying the same thing about Southampton. 'Well done to Ronald Koeman's side,' 'the fairytale continues,' 'what are those who predicted relegation saying now?'
It won't be boring for Southampton fans, however. Nor for their manager.
"Football is strange because the first half was much better than last week," Koeman told Sky Sports after his side's 1-0 victory over Stoke. "I think it was one of the best first halves of the season. In the second half we lost sometimes too easy our position.
"They didn't create a lot, we deserved our win but it was a difficult one, more difficult than last week and maybe more nicer to win like this than last week because the lads showed great character and great ambition again.
"We had a great support of our fans and a great win."
That win takes them to second in the Premier League table. Amazing.
Tough game for tough men !!! And next time Mr.Pellè, make it a few inch in, please (woodwork) !! 2nd place pic.twitter.com/FdcIHCrGoZ— Graziano Pellè (@GPelle19) October 25, 2014
