Southampton v Liverpool Your Report added at 22:55:09
Poor team selection and tactics, Redmond was excellent but we had a stronger bench than team!
No real out ball with only one up front, although couldn't fault the effort of those that started. When you looked at the Liverpool starting team thought, hey we have a chance here but then saw our starting eleven and my hopes faded!
JWP totally invisible, did he miss Romeu or is his mind elsewhere??

The truth is we don't have the payers, good enough, to play the system Ralph tries to play. How many times this season have we got caught out playing from or across the back and giving possession away.
Yesterday was slightly different, they targeted the space created by our full backs bombing up the pitch at every opportunity, leaving the Centre backs one on one, because we don't have the pace or positional awareness in central midfield. Add to that Bednareks lack of pace and the obvious fact that Salisu is positionally unaware and still learning his trade. I strongly believe that both are solid defenders and would thrive in a more balanced defence. I'm not sure whether Ralph is the right man or not but if he remains there is definitely a need for different thinking in both players and tactics!

Forster played well and that's about it, formation and tactics were way off, most of us fans noticed before Ralph and the game had finished before it was changed. Very, very poor all round!

Very very poor performance from top to bottom. Expected a few changes after some tired performance on Thursday, especially with the cup game coming up. Adam Armstrong looked lively enough on his cameo Thursday, to be given a run for the rested Broja. Stu Armstrong needed a rest and maybe Ely too?
Biggest concern for me is that when teams don't allow our full backs space behind them we seem to have no ideas and resort to our sideways and backwards style. Lets not over work in training this week because we need to be a bit more on it for Sunday!

Southampton v Everton Your Report added at 10:37:21
Messy game affected by the wind but satisfactory result without really needing to lift our game too much.
They started faster and pushed us back, playing direct and using the wind to their advantage. Everything aimed at Richarlison and Calvert Lewin but without any real threat, Salisu and Bednarek holding firm. Once we got into our stride and particularly the second half there was never any doubt who would win. I expected a tougher game than this and if they can't produce better they may well drop and to see Longy score against them was a great moment for us all!

Manchester United v Southampton Your Report added at 11:25:09
Started slowly but only to be expected after Wednesday. This is beginning to look very much like our first choice eleven & I cant even find a starting place for Tino at present. We perhaps lose a bit of pace with Stu & Ely as wide midfield but gain a far better control of the ball and goal scoring threat. Maybe should have won but I think we all would have grabbed 5 points if offered before this run of games, perhaps 3 would have been considered a good outcome? Not sure about the possible penalty but I'm certain it would have been looked at harder had it been at the other end. Us and all the other smaller teams have come to accept this even if the powers that be fail to notice. Looking forward to Everton, which I feel will be more difficult due to their league position and their need to impress Frank Lampard but we know we can beat anyone when on top form.

Southampton v Coventry City Your Report added at 20:09:31
The arrogance of thinking we could brush aside Coventry with a reserve team very nearly back fired. We were dreadful in the first half, whereas Coventry looked at it. Their fans were excellent all game, especially the fat bloke! Second half we looked better and I'm a strong believer we should never start a game without Stuart Armstrong in the line up. Theo was awful but not alone, Thierry Small was totally out of his depth but not helped by the car crash surrounding him. Lucky win in the end but not something that I think has done us any favours for future team selection.

Because I just love to be marked down, I will ask why Redmond has marked so low? So low in fact he scores less than the two subs who played less than 15 minutes!
He got an assist for the goal and our performance down the flank went downhill after his substitution.
I know he's not by any means our best player but he creates a good understanding with whatever full back he plays with, works really hard and his pace scares teams. Most of our good results he has been part of???
Its just a question for you to consider :)

This is why we want the big boys to stay, every Saints fan, apart it seems from I-Would, must have had the same feeling of euphoria, because we tested ourselves against the best and came through it with honours!
Every player shone, nobody let us down and the atmosphere in and out of the stadium was electric.
I had said that Salisu had been showing his lack of experience lately but seemed like a giant last night, Forster maybe just earned a contract (with a slight pay cut maybe) and KWP must have made Ralph consider playing Livramento elsewhere, the midfield worked incredibly hard and the two up front harried, pressed and held the ball up when needed. Super performance and one that gives us a bit of confidence and Ralph the basis of his team talk for Tottenham!

Three in midfield and boy did we dominate! Great team performance, from everybody. JWP shone in a very competent midfield, we looked to break quickly when possible and Tella at right wingback didn't weaken us at all. Perraud is a workhorse and maybe is better at the back than around their box but the tackle that led to our third goal was superb as was his performance again. If only we could find the money to keep Broja?
Oh and the crowd was great and had some fun !!!!
Now we need to get something from Wolves.

Swansea City v Southampton Your Report added at 22:33:51
Pleased with the win, disappointed that some of the kids didn't get a run out but that was completely understanding in the circumstances. Before we castigate Valery too much it was two pretty soft yellows, the second when he had not fully recovered from a forward run and found himself the wrong side of Obafemi, who went down very easily with a very faint touch. Although he has a tendency to be over impetuous as we have seen often in the past. Maybe he needs to go on loan as more game time may help to erase this impetuousness? Have to admit wasn't chuffed when Longy came on but he did it again, put in a shift but scored too! Lets see where the next round takes us & just hope it's not Cardiff!

Sterling effort from all for an extremely well earned point. Definitely not the side any of us would have selected which started very well and deservedly went in front. Salisu has to learn from the sending off as he was diving in a bit recklessly, especially with a ref anxious to give them an advantage (that's how it looked to me) totally different game after the sending off but compelling just the same. Difficult to pick anyone out for singular praise but Levy must have wondered how they have spent so much money on full backs that are not a patch on the one they sold us!

The first goal came as we went backwards from the edge of their box and lost it in midfield!
Lyanco & Salisu both have a lot to learn and tonight it showed a fair bit.
Tompkins is probably still looking over his shoulder for Tella who was excellent and JWP's free kick will hopefully give him his confidence back. finally there is really no place in the first team squad for Long, Wallcott & Djenepo who offer very little and are holding back some of our promising youngsters?

oh and I turned to the person next to me and said McCarthy just pulled his hamstring on about 60 minutes,
So if I saw it why didn't Ralph or one of his assistants, or one of the players pass it on.
McCarthy himself should have gone down, at least that would have given the management team an input!!

Just a welly upfield away from 3 points!!!!
We were happy to sit on a 1-0 score line and were content not to take a chance round there box. Yet continued to take chances around our own. Total domination of a game that ended up 1-1 and its difficult to comprehend!
Livramento had a poor game and desperately needs a break to recharge, JWP is nowhere near last seasons form and we have developed a habit of sloppy passing, which shatters some excellent work.
We have just drawn a game that should have been closed out earlier and we have again been punished for not pressing our superior play when we are on top and thinking we could just hold onto the ball and see the game out.

Very good first half, not enough goals. Slightly poor second half but defensively sound ( mostly)
Ralph plays KWP left back, to prevent left footed right wingers cutting in to shoot but maybe should tell him it's ok for him to do that at the other end!

For some reason we were drawn into a long ball game that suited them more than us We desperately needed to slow the game down try to play through them but our movement was poor. Theo was dreadful, Romeu was super as usual, Wood bossed our CB's a little too often. despite a couple of clear chances missed by us a point is all we really deserved. Stu Armstrong should definitely have been introduced earlier and Broja was limping for a good 10 minutes before being replaced. The spell when we did play through them looked good but was short lived. Think a point was all we deserved unfortunately!
