Wolves game : firstly what a pleasure to watch wolves. Loved the way they move the ball around. Loved the grit and determination from every one of their players.

I'm glad Ralph stuck to his 3 CBs; this makes us much more fluid and much more of a attacking threat. Really surprised he kept Tella at right back, he's not a right back and you could see that from his positional play. Should have played KWP right back. Perraud is finally hitting the form that was the reason we signed him. He would have got up to speed quicker if Ralph hadn't decided KWP was a better left back. So that begs the question, what is he going to do once Tino is fit?

Redmond :what does he have to do to be substituted or not even picked. Adams much better player and contributes more. Or even S. Armstrong. This was not the game to carry anyone and we carried Redmond.

Wolves are good to watch when they’re playing football. Cannot stand Latin American prima donnas diving to ground clutching their faces, surrounding the ref or blocking free kicks. It’s the dark arts of the game we could also do better but it’s just disgusting to watch really and I can’t believe that in this day and age they still get away with it.

With regards our current best team; it’s a bold suggestion but I’d be tempted to go 3-4-3;
Forster; Lyanco, Salisu, Bednarek; KWP, JWP, Diallo, Perraud; Tino, Broja, Adams.

We then have the Armstrongs, Elyounoussi, Tella and Redmond as offensive options, with Romeu, Stephens, Valery as defensive reinforcements.

It won’t happen and we will end up playing a right back at left back of course, but it’s certainly in decent shape and better than we’ve had for a few years.

Agree with most of your comments Rich but would add that Bednarek is a liability and a calamity waiting to happen with his arms often wrapped around everyone who ran past him to negate his sluggishness when caught out of position .Fortunately Lyanco was quick enough to bail him out.Say no more about Forster’s positioning for the second goal.JWP’s free.kick was brilliant.Finally Adam Armstrong maybe could have been brought on earlier with Adams as he threatened Wolves defence more than Broja who was well shackled on the day

After reading several posts regarding Ralph’s tenure many are unanimous in identifying a huge selection problem.Whilst Ralph continues to slowly improve his attractive style of play progress is impeded by the continued selection of players in their wrong positions when the obvious remain on the bench ( maybe he wants to remain liked by all players)?This is a serious problem which ultimately costs us points.So PLEASE SFC Board provide Ralph with a knowledgeable strong character NO 2 with licence re team selection game management substitution advice and coaching skills.These additions would surely put the.team on an upward trajectory ( preferably with Ralph’s approval ).Failure to address this major weakness could result in Ralph’s demise.

Wow what a start to the New year firstly a solid performance in the cup then a much needed league win and all on top of the takeover, it is starting to look like a good time to be a saints fan once again.is there any chance that the new owners can get Broja on a permanent deal, now that would be something special

It's happening again. All of a sudden I'm getting this uncontrollable wave of optimism that we might be the best team in the world. New owner, amazing vibes in the stadium, first time I've been since pre-Covid, everything seems to be looking up.

We scored four. FOUR. We gave away a lead naturally but then went and won anyway. Bednarek scored and we didn't lose. We played well without Tino or Stu. Weve hardly lost at home in the last six months. The crowd were loud. It's a new year miracle.

But in all seriousness, we seem to have an excellent amount of depth now. I love a 3 atb and it worked wonderfully tonight. Perraud is an excellent wing back, 3 CBs always make me feel more secure, and Diallo is starting to look like a little star.

Only blemish. Broja isn't a permanent member of our squad, because he is a little bit special.

But we are somehow 11th and already nearly safe which makes a pleasant change.

Great result!' Lots of comments about how much better we played, especially Romeu and JWP.
It really is simple. For whatever reason, Ralph has stuck to his formation, two CB's and two holding midfielders. JWP has been playing around the ankles of our CB's, contributing little to attack. Romeu also playing too deep.
So we've had a pretty static midfield.

Play 3 CB's and what a difference! Perraud pushing up, JWP and Romeu much, much further up the pitch. So now we have a midfield that really is a midfield, dynamic, lots of interplay, options everywhere!

Great result

What a fantastic all round performance from front to back. JWP has been phenomenal this last month or so and is so much more effective playing in a more advanced position. Mind you, that tackle at the end was out of the very top drawer - tackle of the season.
Competition for places is hitting up - Diallo had IMO his best game for the club tonight and Broja is the first attacker on the team sheet - how we need to keep him.
With Che getting on the score sheet and Adam A due a few goals it’s all looking brighter.
Tricky 3 games coming up but with confidence high, there’s every reason to be optimistic that we can kick on.
As someone who has to make a 250 mile round trip for home games it’s been a while since I felt that after glow on the journey home.
Well played tonight lads!

Millertime :
It’s going to sound all soppy, but it’s fans like you that make an incredible journey to watch Saints, that make this a great club!
My commute is 1 mile and even I abandoned my season ticket because of the dross, so respect!

Unleash JWP and he becomes the engine behind the team. As for that tackle… unbelievable

How kind Rich - thank you!
1 mile or 250, as fans we all deserve a night like last night to rekindle the faith. We can’t possibly win every game but we can die trying and that’s what was missing for a long period. However, hope springs eternal, and it maybe that we are turning the corner. Even Redmond has put in a shift and while he wouldn’t make my starting lineup I cannot deny his recent work rate.
Wasn’t it great to see the smiles on the faces of the new chaps in the box!
