During the 2006–07 English football season, Southampton Football Club competed in the Football League Championship.

Season summary[edit]

Southampton improved in their second consecutive season in the Championship, although their overall form was inconsistent and they were soon out of the race for automatic promotion. Their inconsistency threatened to put them out of the play-off picture too, but eventually Southampton scraped to sixth position in the final table. Southampton were drawn against manager George Burley's old club Derby County, who managed to defeat Southampton 4–3 in a penalty shootout after a 4–4 aggregate draw over two legs.
