Greeting loyal saints fans, hows it all going.

To be honest i don't really know much about New Orleans or the your team, but am a loyal Southampton football club fan in the UK (also the saints), and just thought i'd give you all a buzz to check how your teams doing, although i know its the close season at the moment.

Am interested in finding out more bout your football, know basic amount at the moment, but it seems all seem very nice, and i hope to strike a good trans-atlantic alliance!!

Long live Saints everywhere!!

Sorry to be so ignorant, but can i know a bit about the club, history (any superbowls etc.), how you did last season, and how big is your stadium, it looks huge in the pictures! Bigger than St Marys!!

any superbowls etc
Oh, we have plenty of those, but they all exist in our head. You may want to reference the official site for team history- alot of good info about the team there.

Hey don\'t worry bout it, my saints are always the ones that are treated like crap by the media and no one takes any notice of us.

We got to the cup final this year, and the whole city went mental, but we lost, the only time we\'ve won anything was in 1976 and we\'ve been around since 1885!!

Seems we\'ve got something in common!!

Here you go Rocky. As Black and Blue said, you can click on this link and it will take you to the official site for the team history and seating capacity of the stadium.

Rocky, have you heard anything about this 13 year old soccer (I mean football) phenom the US is supposed to have? He\'s alledgedly the next Pele.
Sounds like some nike hype to me, but I know more about quantum physics than I do Soccer (I mean football)!

Welcome aboard mate!

Hey i\'ll make you all a deal you find out about soccer (i hate that name!!), and i\'ll find out about football, i tell you its simple you kick a round ball in a goal not using your hands. Thats about it!

To be honest theres always 13 year olds about that are gonna be great, but they soon die down, wait til he\'s 18 and then take a look at him. I\'m sure its the same with football and every other sport.

By the way if any of you want to visit www.saintsforever.com and go to the forum, theres loads of us on there, come and say hello, i\'m sure all us lot will recieve you just a well as you recieved me!
