The Visitors

The Visitors

It's early May. Leicester City FC are hosting south coast opponents Southampton, The Saints. Both clubs need a win. Southampton are hunting a place in the Europa Cup and Leicester fighting relegation from the Premier to the Championship League.

Many of the Southampton fans are in shorts, some coupled with flip-flops. Maybe it's living by the sea, it's surely not shorts weather today here in the English East Midlands.

They arrive in coaches, buy burgers and drinks from the vans outside the ground and then make their way into the visitors' end. The atmosphere is good.
