FOOTBALL supporters cannot believe the state of Southampton’s pitch as they took to Twitter to ridicule the turf.

Forget Raheem Sterling‘s 23rd minute opener or Romeo Lavia’s incredible equaliser.

Twitter users went crazy over the south coast side’s pitch.

Fans couldn’t take their eyes off of the poor quality, with Sky Sports pundit Michael Dawson claiming it “has a disease”.

One supporter posted: “How is Southampton’s pitch so bad at this time of the year?”

Another quipped: “Southampton’s pitch is suffering from disease and it’s in worse state than a grass field in Buffalo during the month of May.”

A third added: “I like that the St Mary’s pitch is disease-ridden. Hopefully ties into the notion that Southampton ‘is a tough place to go’.”

This fan then remarked: “I don’t think I have ever seen a pitch in worse condition in August than Southampton.”

One then commented: “That pitch at Southampton looks in bad shape. What’s the problem.”

Another messaged: “How is Southampton’s pitch so bad when we’re still in summer? Should be a fine.

This person then said: “What is up with the Southampton pitch? Looks so poorly treated.”

Meanwhile one simply stated: “That Southampton pitch is rank.”

And another blasted: “The state of Southampton’s pitch is criminal.”
