Southampton have been effectively relegated to the third tier of English football for the first time in forty-eight years.
The Football League sealed the club's fate in a statement this afternoon, with the report commissioned to look into the club's finances after it entered administration earlier this month finding the football club and the holding company were "inextricably linked."
If Saints do achieve a miraculous survival this season, the points will be deducted from their final tally and they will still go down.
The likelihood, however, is that the club will be relegated of their own accord this weekend and start life in League One on -10. It is a hard league at the best of times, but Saints will face a huge challenge to avoid successive relegations after the player sales likely this Summer.
That assumes, of course, that the club is still operating next year.
It is a sorry day for SFC.
