During the 2004–05 English football season, Southampton Football Club competed in the Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Manager Paul Sturrock left Southampton by mutual consent in August, after only six months as manager; his resignation was attributed to a disappointing run of form and rumours of player unrest and boardroom dissatisfaction with his management. His replacement, Steve Wigley, failed to improve results and he has soon sacked with the club in deep relegation peril. Harry Redknapp came from arch-rivals Portsmouth in an attempt to save the Saints, but despite being able to attain safety and another season of Premiership football by winning on the last day of the season, Southampton lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United and were relegated from the Premiership in last place.

Kit[edit]

The season's kit was manufactured by the club's own brand, Saints. The kit was sponsored by English life insurance company Friends Provident.
