At The Dell, Southampton used to have the littlest of Little Ones.
Little Ones may not be your cup of tea, but you could look at this goal and know immediately it was Southampton.
Now at St Mary's, the goalnets are boxes made of trampoline like everybody else's.
But spy the fancy red and white tubing, and the obvious decision to let the nets hang loose, and, in their own way, the St Mary's nets might be thought as distinctive as the old ones at The Dell. A goal scored into them is certainly more aesthetically pleasing.
