Sad news. He clearly played his part in helping the Saints back in the day when we started struggling economically.

Saints league position
by Gennaro_Contaldo at 22:28 15 Sep 2019

So ... I know I know, it's early, but people were w*nking themselves silly about Palace last week, being 4th. If Saints beat Bournemouth on Friday, they'll (temporarily) be 3rd?? Mental, given the fact that the defence is bollocks.

F**k it, what a season this could be ...

Wolves, everyone's pick for the top 6/7 are floundering. Watford are dreadful, Bournemouth not much better, Palace the same. West Ham and Everton are two unknowns really, but the whole league outside Liverpool and Man City is wide open this year. Much better than expected.

I can’t make the Spurs game I completely forgot about a wedding I have to go to so if anyone wants two adult tickets in the away end I’m just looking to get my money back on these £30 each ideally sell as a pair.

Saints At Sheffield United The Verdict
by underweststand at 18:46:47

OK Djenepo played out of position, but he scored the winner. It's the 3 pts. that matter.
Of course, VAR may go against us sometimes but you can only guess what the result may have been - had it not been there for everyone to see.

Everyone put in a shift and played their part. Just hope that Che Adams has patience enough to wait for his first goal....long dry spells have a bad effect of some strikers, and this wasa game where we started without Redmond AND Ings.

I've no complaint with Ralphs tactics / substitutions - as it creates new possibilites with another formation in the second half - if things aren't going according to Plan A.

If we are to have a respectable showing in the Prem. we need to beat the Brightons and the Sheffields in this league but now we face two "derby matches" within a week. Bournemouth because it would strenthen our league position, and Pompey - for obvious reasons- and a real chance of a Cup run.
Two wins would set the pattern for the season - otherwise it's back to the drawing board.

I'm not particularly sure the Ralph deserves praise for playing Djenepo out of position where he was dreadful - then playing him in his own position and he wad great. In his first games he was on the bench as he's new to the league. Now he can start above more experienced players in an unfamiliar position.
Very odd.

657 crew vandalise a van in southampton
by this_charming_man at 15:43 15 Sep 2019

Turn up in Southampton and vandalise a Van Cover it in 657 graffiti, ahead of our game next week. They take photos and post it all over various football site. They’re all congratulating each other on how “class” it is

Real story. Pompey fan scrapping a Van covers it in 657 graffiti outside his Portsmouth house, Tirana photos of it and pretends it was Pompey fans vandalising a Van in Southampton

They really are utterly pathetic.

That was the point I made first though Nick, that RH didn't use up a substitution when we were exposed on the left by Djenepo's lack of defensive skills. The obvious thing to do was take Djenepo off and bring on Bertrand swapping experience for lack of experience or take off Boufal, who was having a good match, and move Djenepo up front. It could of course be that Bertrand is having one of his sulks and RH was showing who's boss. It's going to be interesting when Redmond is fit because I'd expect Bertrand to resume on the left side with either or both Boufal and Djenepo back on the bench. At last we have a squad with genuine options in most formations, apart from the central defensive conundrum.

Highfield, Bertrand has been back in training for two weeks, Im not surprised Cedric is in, but given the problems we were having on the left flank till we moved Cedric across im surprised we didnt see either Valery of Bertrand brought on to shore things up

Give Ralph a new contract
by Saintsforeverj at 14:56 15 Sep 2019

Ralph is creating a really good team, that isn't yet perfect, but it will be close to it in time under Ralph, I am sure. The signings under Ralph already look good. The team is quicker, more resilient, the goalkeeper actually saves things, we have clean sheets, the team looks together and players really play for the manager like Boufal and we are in the top half! When these young players develop further (Djenepo, Adams, Danso etc). we are heading for having a really exciting team once again.

This is a manager who doesn't spend very much, brings through young talent, plays an enjoyable style of play and spends wisely when he does spend in the transfer market. Perfect for our club.

And the way Ralph celebrates with the fans at the end is magic. Yesterday, he ordered his players over to the away support to celebrate because he cares about us. Love him.

Not seen such happy and buzzing fans for a long time.
Get Ralph signed up.

Not pretty but effective. Moving Cedric to the left tightened things up nicely and I'd forgotten how good he is in the attacking third. Commendable performances from Maya, Jan, Oriel, Pierre, Che and Soufianne. According to the statistics United had 17 attempts off target which is the price we pay when they break the press. Having said that, Moussa's goal came from the press. I think he still needs to fully integrate - he was getting frustrated in the first half when making runs but the ball didn't arrive.
A long journey home made pleasant by the result.

Many managers would have substituted Djenepo having realised that his defensive positional sense wasn't up to expectations. Fair play to RH he shuffled the pack without an early substitution and Moussa scored a stunning goal to take the three points. Adams and Boufal were terrific up front and JWP showed his value to the team, not only with some excellent delivery from crosses and set pieces but also taking on a defensive role. Gutsy performance all round but we have to hope that Danso will develop into a regular choice alongside Bednarek sooner rather than later. Once again lots of hard work from Yoshi and Vestergaard but too many simple mistakes as well. I don't think that there's any mystery about Valery and Bertrand being on the bench Nick. Cedric was picked on merit and Bertrand is recovering from an injury so in my view they'll both return when they are ready to compete.

Moussa was class (and giving something to the kid in the crowd was extra special). Che was class too, didnt score but a lovely shot that came off the bar. Some top saves from Gunn.
Vestergaard was given the run around a bit and we are lucky that mcgoldrick couldnt hit a clean strike all game.
Good game though

Anither stat from yesterday
by kingslandstand1 at 12:20 15 Sep 2019

First time since March 1986 that we have won 3 away games on the trot without conceding a goal (according to beeb site)

Not so sure that is a proud one to have considering out times in the lower divs this century?

Good summary Nick. Cannot disagree with that. It does look like Sheff U may have had a case for a penalty having seen it on MOTD but not the strongest of cases.

What do we do about this defence Nick because I think every conceivable combination has been tried and for the life of me I have no idea which is the best combination and I don't think Ralph knows either. Bednarek seems the one stable diet in it, but beyond that, they all look a touch away from a calamity. Hopefully, Danso will bring some sanity to the defence but it places alot on him. It is bewildering how our main CB's just don't seem to learn from their errors.

A good day out though - enjoyable game and for all the errors etc, we do look a team prepared to get stuck in now and show some grit, sprinkled with some skillful players. Our midfield was good yesterday - worked well as a group.

Farting
by PatfromPoole at 09:28 15 Sep 2019

Awful lot of farting going on yesterday in the away end, particularly during the second-half.

Being stood near the back of our stand, directly under a low roof, there was absolutely no escape from it.

I went out for an Indian in Sheffield on Friday night, and none of the gases I produced on Saturday morning were in this league. Absolutely awful.

No one fessed up, obviously.

Well done to all in the team. Not an easy game. Djenepo man of the match for me. He looks like a very good signing and scored a great goal. What skills he has. Great weekend to everyone.
