Hi guys,

Well it's a pleasure not to be writing bitching about a performance, and tonight Saints did us proud. I wonder if CA had been on for those early corners it might have been even better, but who knows? I think the game plan otherwise was almost perfect, you could argue if Cedric had still been on would Sterling have scored, but again that's just being picky. A really great performance and happy if we carry on performing like this we have nothing to worry about. COYR.

Agree Vintage. Great performance last night. I, like most on here have given FF a slating this season but last night he was world class. Would have preferred Austin and Boufal to have started up front but was also was glad to see us finally starting with 3 at the back.

I certainly agree it was an improved performance last night not especially from the players but definitely from the manager and his game plan but we still lost. At the end of the season record books don't show how well we played only the amount of points we got. Don't know about you lot but conceding with the last kick of the game was not unexpected to me Saints are good at that. The win against Everton obviously gave the whole squad some confidence which shone through last night. The difference with Saints and most other sides is we don't take the few chances we get, if we could improve on this conversion ratio I am pretty sure we will be fine. Hojlbjerg has impressed in the last couple of games and with Lemina back I fancy our chances against Bournemouth.

So. which saints does everyone think will turn up tonight. don't think we can afford to sit in and hold out for a draw or breakaway goal. might as well go and play some exciting attacking football I reckon.

Hi saint, without putting a downer on it, Everton are totally crap but let's hope we can build on this and if we lose at least lose playing competitive, attacking football, let's follow both Brighton and Huddersfield who went down fighting and with players who gave everything. We still have a very tough run of games coming but let's see what the Man City game brings. Coyr.

Nice result and more importantly a good performance.
Pull Boufal aside and tell him to play it simple a little more often.
I’ve got a feeling though we are going to set up a lot more defensively mid week.

27 Nov 2017 09:43:18
disagree with getting boufal to play more simple. we need someone to be more creative and put some sugar and spice into the play.

27 Nov 2017 13:49:42
I’m not saying clip his wings completely. He just needs to learn that sometimes when the simple pass is on it’s the better option.
Yes it’s great to see him beat a few people but he seems to try and do it all the time and at the moment his success rate is a lot lower than his failure rate.

Planet Football have a top ten of this season's Keepers in the Prem and our very own Fraser Forster ranks at number 7. Apparently, being 6ft 7 helps you save a lot of shots from close range. Sadly, his save percentage of shots from outside the box is in the low 60s making him by far the worst stopper in the Prem from that range. Just about sums it up.

I'm not even sure he saves the close range ones. they just seem to hit him. Anything a couple of inches either side of him that require moving usually ends in a goal.

25 Nov 2017 09:04:24
Better give him another new contract then, well done Les you useless pr***.

What bothers me is that all the media guys and our supporters expected us to get nothing at Liverpool last Saturday. How things have changed over just a few months is really baffling. We have a new manager which let's face it would have been sacked by any other club by now. We beat Liverpool twice to get to a major Cup Final and really should have beaten Man U in the final with basically the same players we have now. Some of our supporters blame the players for not performing and are not blaming the manager which really confuses me. Look at teams like Burnley, Bournemouth, Brighton etc. average players but excellent management skills to get the best out of what they have. Our current manager and his associated useless management team have no clue how to change things. Les Reed made a massive mistake appointing MP and I'm sure he knows it but I reckon he is just stubbornly hoping a miracle happens which it won't. We will almost certainly be in the bottom four by Christmas and then Reed sacks MP and brings in somebody else when the game is almost up leaving the new guy in a very desperate position. Having said this who would want to take the job if the position by that time is almost hopeless? What has happened over the last 12 months has ruined everything that was achieved over the last 5 seasons. Why can't the board see this when it is obvious to everybody else.

Saint Chris, good post. Agree with most of that, however something else is worrying me. If we were to take away that amazing goal from SB against WBA and a fortunate penalty against WHU, we would already be in a much more precarious position. All in all it is terrible football, few goals, body language is not right, and generally worrying times.

25 Nov 2017 12:30:54
Don't Agree with of that . "Yeh, he's had so much time to develop" his style (Not saying he will) But I Do Not Agree with sacking a manager after 10-15 games. And Didn't everyone Rant on about How Lucky we were to have such a well run club esp Les Reed. Fickle and it winds up . Sorry!
