FA Cup
by kingslandstand1 at 18:42 21 Apr 2024

Just watching that game, and the tvvats ith the Prem and even FA dare I say are trying to kill it for the lower league teams

Fk it, all lower league teams boycott the final on TV that's bound to make them change their minds

(though tbf, I'd probably avoid the bore that it will be anyway )

Play offs
by kingslandstand1 at 14:45 21 Apr 2024

So who do we want, Norwich or Baggies? We're almost certainly gonna get 4th spot now after yesterday's catastrophe, which it was, so we will at east have the advantage of home leg 2nd but who to play?

We've done the double over West Brom, and aggregate 5-5 with Norwich (1-4, 4-1!) who may be on a slightly better run right now? Both will bring their full allocation down but not a lot between them? Both are yo-yo clubs whereas we've only had the one play off though not sure if that makes a difference. But if I had to choose, think I'd rather play Canaries just on gut feeling that West Brom are a bigger club (or are they??)

Missied chances last season cost us our PL place Missed chances this season looks like costing us an automatic promotion It could also cost us a play off promotion

How many matches have there been when we only play one half Sometimes the first sometimes the second I do wonder if the coaching team give them too much information at half time which leaves them confused

The idea of an RM managed Saints in the Prem next season is, at one level, what we all hope for and why we are so disappointed at such a performance and result. On the other hand graveworm's point (so good he made it four times) that going up might not be a good thing is very valid. RM is managing a top team in THIS league and we are as open, and flaky, at the back as I have ever seen us. I will be delighted if we do go up (no point being a supporter if not) but would be fearful of RM trying to play like this in the Prem (as he would) without the resources to get the players needed (they have to be very good to play this way and we won't have the money)

I blame RM for many of our woes but the failure to put seems to the sword and the missing of easy chances is largely down to the personnel on the pitch. In the end, although Adams and Armstrong have scored a fair few between them they have missed sitters at vital times (esp. Adams) and the back-up players have not been up to it.

The play-offs will be anyone's guess. We have to beat two of Leeds/Ipswich, WBA and Norwich. Not easy at all.

9 points from those and we would be looking very healthy
But we could only manage 1
What a shambles

Predictable. It was only going to end one way after some of the most woeful attempts at shots I've ever seen. The team should be ashamed of themselves and I don't think they were helped by a random handful of subs at 80 mins by an incompetent manager who has no idea how to what to do to positively affect the game.
Bloody useless.

So Effing P!ssed Off!!
by Southamptonfan at 21:46 20 Apr 2024

Just got back, what a ridiculous result against Cardiff reserves. Just spent £160 on Leeds tickets for myself and family members because the team gave us hope with 3 home wins, we didn't want to miss possible celebrations of promotion at Elland Road, then they f@cking lose to Cardiff reserves and miss about 10 open goals! Are they just teasing us. I wouldn't have bothered spending all that money for Leeds for a meaningless game and saved it for the play offs. If they were going to not turn up today, and players who have played in the PL were going to miss open goals from 2 yards, why did they bother beating Watford in the 99th minute? Why didn't they settle for a play off place a few games ago and save us a whole lot of money? Why give us all hope, to f@ck up yet again? We didn't even get out of 2nd gear today. So soft, so lame, no aggressive play.

I've now got to go to Leeds, probably watch all their fans celebrate promotion in our faces and then spend a whole load of more money on play off tickets and then a possible day at Wembley. When we then probably f@ck it up anyway, they will then want another £600 each for season tickets, unless I move to the Northam.

Cue all the blame on RM, and he has to take his fair share of the blame but honestly can professional players not just tap the ball into an empty net in a big game against Cardiff's reserves?

Yours Sincerely

Thoroughly P!ssed Off Southamptonfan.

Once more lack of effort in second half. Playing ball around in and about penalty area with a goalie no good with his feet asking for trouble and low and behold an easy win turned into a loss.

Really disappointing against an injury hit Cardiff side. Missed so many chances again. Sums up our season, dominate games but can’t finish teams off and pay the price. Wicked deflection for their winner, can’t blame McCarthyism for the goals.

Huge loss to see Armstrong looking to be ruled out for the rest of the season.

Despite missing a hatful of chances I thought we didn’t play well and failed to control the game.

The play offs it is then.

This just about sums us up completely
He should have been subbed off for game management earlier, Wussell didn’t do that, we
Lose, Stuart gets injured and we lose our most creative player for the remainder of the season when we need our best makers AND he may never play for us again
Absolute disgrace

That’s the reason we would not survive in the premiership if we ever were unlucky enough to get promoted
Too many opportunities needed to score
The opposite as regards defending
When reality is mentioned you are classed as pessimistic
Personally I think it’s been an enjoyable season
But we need a massive clear out
To me the reality is we are nowhere good enough, if you base standards on premier requirements
Whether you want to blame the manager for his style of football is immaterial
You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear

Awful finishing yet again.
5 or 6 excellent chances missed.
We should have been out of sight at HT.
Further chances in 2nd Half.
Gift them a goal.
Panic.

We are joint top scorers in the league, yet throw away so many points.
We are being punished for not signing the quality Striker and Keeper we have needed all season.

If I did my job as badly as A Armstrong and Adams did I would expect be disciplined for poor performance but, hey, I’m sure they’ll just smile & wave and get on with it…..

3 reasons why we will not get promoted
by grumpy at 17:45 20 Apr 2024

1. We don’t have a striker who can score easy chances.
2. We don’t have a good enough Goalkeeper.
3. We have a manager with no plan B.
