Chelsea v Southampton Your Report added at 18:32:34
Abysmal officiating today as I’ve seen that red, and it’s never a red! (Also posted it on referee discussion groups and a majority agree), so how mike dean, nigel adkins and john moss keep their jobs is ridiculous!
On the basis of Ralph, well today I don’t think there was much more he could’ve done, and it wasn’t a game in which we expected much, but if we don’t get at least 5 points from our next 3 games (Leeds, Burnley and Watford) then I do think it’s time for change!
Still with the squad/investment we have, I very much doubt many other managers can do much better than Ralph has done.

All the people calling for Ralph to go are just soo pathetic and plastic! I mean for starters looking at our first 6 games we’ve had, most realistic saints fans would’ve expected like 5 points (4 against Newcastle and Wolves with a win and the other as a draw, and another point off of West Ham or Everton) which is only 1 point more than what we’ve got so far, which is certainly not something you sack a manager over!

Then also you’ve gotta look at the players at his disposal as our defence has been really decent this season, it’s just our strike force hasn’t been getting anything even though they’ve been getting the chances. This isn’t down to Ralph as he gets no investment whatsoever so can’t get decent PL quality strikers, like the likes of Villa, West game, Leicester etc can during the winter transfer market.
I mean if we don’t have a win by October, then yeah maybe you can start to look at Ralph, as 3 of the 4 league games we should arguably win, but even then when you get bugger all investment off of Gao, there’s not a lot that managers can do.

I’m really worried about relegation next season now! As the game so far today has just summed up saints for the second half of the season, where we start strong, get loads of chances.... but don’t take them! Then come to regret it when they score and take the lead! Then in the second half we just create bugger all and lay off the game like we’re winning!

The fact is that we just don’t have a good enough squad, and that’s for basically every position! As I personally think we’ve only got like 5 proper PL players (Ings, Prowse, Armstrong, Walker-Peters and maybe Vestergaard and Romeu) but other than them we’ve got nobody! And there’s certain positions that we need to get in desperately (like a goalkeeper as I personally think McCarthy is better, but whether you agree or not, the fact is that nether McCarthy or Forster are PL quality!) yet we just won’t get them in as we don’t have the funding and we need like 6/7 players yet will be lucky to get like 3/4! And if Ings leaves the only chance we have at staying up is simply by ether investing loads in the summer (which we all know won’t happen whilst Gao invests bugger all into the club) or by teams being even worse than us! As I can see wolves struggling next season, along with Norwich and the usual lot. But whether they do worse than us is what I think will define of whether we stay up or not!

I personally I think that Ralph does get a bit more stick than he should, but WHY he keeps playing certain poor players like Redmond, over young talented ones like Tella (who was brilliant when he came on), and that he very rarely has a plan B are my main two issues with him! But it won’t matter who we have as manager next season unless things change. As we’ve been the 8th best team in the PL at home this season, but have been 18th for away games and have conceded over 40 goals! And these changes do simply involve getting in a new owner, so I don’t care how bad it could’ve been, or may be, as we WILL GO DOWN unless Gao buggers off!

Southampton v Leeds United Your Report added at 23:34:43
Today was just a simple game that we lost down to the players! As what else could Ralph have done, as starting lineup wise, it’s pretty clear that Ings wasn’t fully fit and that Tella can’t last the full 90 minutes at the moment, along with che getting a supposed groin injury. So really what could he have done any differently? We just simply lost as we didn’t have the players performing today and didn’t take our first half chances, as we were all over them in the first half, and even in the second half we were still better than them until they scored which just caused a drop in our play. Today’s loss was just simply due to poor performances up front, as our defence are doing well keeping them out, and a bit in midfield too, which cost us the game today!

Sorry Venmans but why are you naming Stephens and McCarthy to go as those two have been decent enough recently! I mean McCarthy has been pulling off loads of decent saves recently, and if you compare him to Forster, they’re both decent at saves, one doesn’t come out enough (Forster) whilst the other comes out too much (McCarthy), but the major difference is that McCarthy can actually distribute the ball to our own players. And with Stephens, ever since he’s come in to replace Bertrand, he’s been quite decent and has certainly been decent!

Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton Your Report added at 23:19:23
This game has just summed up our seasons really! We have a great first half and we’re all over Spurs but then in the second half have been a shambles among with getting our star player injured!

Honestly I don’t think people can just blame Hasenhurtle as who the hell does he have to pick from when making these changes!? As all the subs he’s made today have been fair and understandable but in the end we don’t have a decent enough squad or enough squad depth to get anywhere at the moment! And that’s mainly down to Gao and the board! I mean I’m not saying that everything should be lifted from Ralph’s shoulders but at the same time we just have a shit owner and poor squad depth!

I mean the likes of Diallo, Djenpo and Redmond just consistently give away the ball and create bugger all! We honestly really need to sort out the squad if we want to get anywhere next season as we need someone to replace Bertrand, a new keeper (as I honestly see no major difference between Forster and McCarthy) along with another centre mid and striker!

This season is now basically over as we’re not getting relegated but we’re not going to get any higher than the likes of 13th! And unless we get in some real investments then I’m just getting fed up and board of the same teams winning every contests and is never achieving anything!

Look most of us really do like Ralph, I mean his personality, his style, him getting us top etc but questions really need to be asked now as like 2 wins in like 17 games, no FA Cup glory along with another 9-0...
I mean today his sub use was basically exactly what most of us would’ve expected/wanted and I don’t really think his tactics were that off, but when you’ve won 2 I’m 17 and have an FA Cup semi-final with the opposing getting only one shot on target compared to your 0 questions need to be asked!
It seems like with Hasenhurtle we always have one great part to the season with the rest being shit! When he joined it was just our end to the season, last season it was the restart part (and maybe around Christmas as well) and this season it was the start of the season! I mean is this down to the quality of our squad, it’s depth or just him!?

Although is it just Ralph!? I mean when you look at our squad is it really that great, as our owner has done bugger all for us and has made us one of the very few clubs to have a profited net spend and ever since Koeman left it’s always been the same!
So what I can say for a fact is that SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE! Whether it’s our owner or manager or both I don’t know, but it’s getting to a point where something must!

Soo frustrating/annoying that we weren’t there to see the look on those Bournemouth fans faces! Also annoying that we’re not allowed at the semi’s at Wembley as in the end it’s no real difference for us lot whether we played at Wembley or the likes of old Trafford (but I guess it does make some difference to the players)! But might be allowed at the final when we knock out the likes of Sheffield United (and yeah I’m being optimistic on them beating Chelsea)!

Ok sorry but that Sheffield United game was simply just a fluke result after what we saw today! I mean questions do need to start being asked as we’ve won 1, drawn 1 and lost the 10! Over our last 12 (which is practically a third of our season!) games! And yeah he got us to first for the first time ever, but in the end we lost 9-0 AGAIN! And have somehow ended up in a relegation scrap!?

I mean we didn’t play well whatsoever today and we’re now only 4 points ahead of Brighton! For me it’s all down to these next games as if we were to loose to a Bournemouth team that’s 5 points out of a championship playoff spot in the FA cup or can’t beat Burnley then that’s just too much! I mean nobody played that well, and hopefully it’s also shown to all those fans going on about Forster that the only reason he kept any clean sheets is simply because he has 8 shots to deal with in our 6 previous games, and should’ve saved that first goal for certain! Sheesh I’d loved to have seen Forster in goal for that Man City game!

Ok Dirk Doone, but that’s not just down to our goalkeeper... I mean in the end McCarthy has had loads to do and yeah has had a few mess ups of such, but in the end practically most of the goals he’s conceded haven’t been his fault. And yeah so Forster has conceded 1 goal in like 6 games... but over those 6 games he’d had 8 shots to deal with! I mean in the end he’s been in gaol for every recent game our defence has been doing well in.

I mean yeah I get and understand where you lot are coming from but for this game in particular McCarthy did perfectly fine and had more shots to deal with that Forster’s had all season (10)! If Forster was in goal wouldn’t have done any better hence why you can’t criticise him just for yesterday

Manchester City v Southampton Your Report added at 23:56:29
I mean yeah he should’ve given away a pen (which somehow wasn’t given) but why’s everyone going on about McCarthy as I don’t see how? I mean the first goal was mainly Bertrand’s fault as I don’t see what McCarthy could’ve done any differently, the second was Adams’s fault for giving it away and as it was soo powerful I don’t see how he could’ve saved it, the third he actually made a decent save and Bertrand was yet again caught ball watching, the 4th and 5th were just too powerful again although the defence should’ve done better with both.

I mean the main player that was poor today was Bertrand, although the likes of Salisu and such weren’t too much better. I mean on the brighter hand it’s good to see Adams get another along with Prowse, as it seems like Ings is going to be out for a while and even when he comes back won’t be extending his stay so we really need another option.

You having a laugh dellboywally! Did you not see the game or something? Or did you and your other 6 accounts hear it on the radio!? Forster came out got caught flat footed and Richarlison just tapped it round him! I mean I don’t see what everyone’s obsession with Forster is as he yeah he kept a clean sheet against Liverpool and in the FA Cup games, but in the end other than one decent save he made against Firminho, those games he had barely anything to do and the defence did the work for him! McCarthy on the other hand has kept us in many of the games, and other than that Arsenal mess up he made, he’s done nothing that’s been completely his fault, hence why he has been and should be in goal for our main team! I mean you don’t see the great keepers like Neur, Ter Stegan, De Gea etcget caught out like that as any decent keeper would’ve come out stretching their legs to expand their area, Forster just simply ran out and practically stood there! I mean if people really do think that Forster wasn’t at fault for the first goal then I don’t know what you expect from keepers as in the end he only to deal with that shot throughout the whole game, and yet still let it in!

Well all those Forster fans got what they wanted! Don’t see why he was in goal and certainly hope that McCarthy is back in it for Sheffield United as he was blatantly at fault for their goal getting caught flat footed! I mean in the end I’d say it all rests on that game as if we lost to Sheffield United who’re basically relegated now, as if we loose that, it’ll be 1 win in 15 games or 1 point in 10 games!

Leeds United v Southampton Your Report added at 20:10:45
You know what, this is ridiculous! 1 win in 13 games and 1 point in our last 8 games just takes the piss! Yeah you know it doesn’t help with having shit officials and VAR always giving the incorrect decisions when for us but always gives the correct ones against us (the pen today!) as yeah we’d of certainly gotten more points, and yeah we needed more players and such with our injury crisis which is down to a shit owner and bad luck whether I for shit pitches or injuries! But in the end 1 POINT! Out of 8 games or just 1 win in 13 games just takes the piss! I mean if it wasn’t for our amazing start we’d be in Fulhams position and the only real difference between either of our seasons currently is that we’re still in the FA cup.

I mean he’s set some good records, yeah, but he’s also set loads of shit ones too! Like us loosing 9-0 AGAIN! Along with being the first manager to loose 6 in a row with us! We just never seen to have a plan B and after this season we’re almost certain to loose the likes of Ings and even now maybe the likes of Prowse, Peters and Vestergaard! I mean I’ve really likes him as a manager for both his personality and tactics and has certainly been our best since Koeman, but at the same time it’s not just entertainment and personality that decides a result of a football game...

For me it’s pretty simple, if we don’t get 4 points out of our next 3 games (Everton, Sheffield United and Man City, all of which are away) then we do need to look at alternatives! I mean unless we beat Everton on Monday, if we loose to Sheffield United then Ralph just has to go! As in the end this is now just ridiculous and has to change! So unless we can beat Sheffield United and really a draw against Everton too then we need to start taking things seriously!

Ok fans really need to start doing something about VAR as it’s not only ruining the game by causing us lot to have to wait to celebrate a goal, but is also causing more controversy than it is solving as in the end it’s just a lottery for which way a decision goes! With certain teams (aka Man U and such) always having more tickets that the other clubs!

I mean but with us we just don’t have a bid enough squad and depending on how long Walker-Peters is out for will only show that point even more as unless we win the FA cup Ings is almost certainly going to leave us during the summer transfer market and this is mainly down to our rubbish owner!

But at the same time I do have to ask the question of when you loose 6 back to back games for the first time in your clubs history and loose 9-0 again with practically a year, there does need to be questions asked of the manager as we’ve got Chelsea next which we’re not going to get anything out of and then Leeds which if we loose will just be ridiculous! I mean as much as I love Ralph as a manager and wouldn’t mind having one for longer than a year or so, in the end you do need to start looking at the facts! I mean I said before the game that we practically had our best 11 out with or without our injuries and yet we still loose.

Sorry but honestly I’m getting to a point where I’m just fed up of football and don’t feel like watching even saints anymore seeing that we’ve got a rubbish owner, we can never seem to keep the form and can never keep our best players! But now the FA are contributing to that too by keeping VAR and ruining any match day experience for us fans! I just can’t take it any more...

We simply lost that game down to some poor mistakes off of Bednerak and MacCarthy! I mean also what the hell is up with Ings and Adams!? Neither of them have scored an open play since we played SHEFFIELD UNITED! Which has now been 10 games! I mean what’s happened to this team as other than Walker-Peters we probably had our best starting lineup today and couldn’t even score a single goal against a Newcastle team that had 10 players for like 25 minutes and then 9 for another 25 minutes!

We’ve got the FA cup game on Thursday and I’d like to see Forster in gaols as if he performs well, I think he should start against Wolves! And maybe the same for Salisu and Bednerak has had a few poor games recently and if Salesian does play on Thursday and shows a good performance then yeah why not start then for the league game against wolves!?

Such a poor a disappointing result! There’s just no excuses this time!

It’s just annoying watching us at the moment, I mean I just feel for Ralph as he’s doing the best he can as he always picks a starting lineup that we all pretty much agree with and is doing decent tactics, but we’ve had a lot of injuries which just shows of how we’ve got such a shit owner and board as our squad depth is just ridiculously thin! And yet we’ve done nothing about it!

I mean we simply lost that game down to that and that certain players just being purely rubbish! I mean in the end Bertrand has been poor recently and the likes of Djenpo is WORSE! Than Boufal! And for that Swedish youth player, well sheesh he wanted to play as he wondered why he never did... well there’s his answer! But we just couldn’t cope with it!

VAR and mike dean though, I just can’t even be asked to talk about anymore!

One positive is simply that Ramsay was actually decent enough!

Btw you the hell was commentating in that game as one of them was a complete idiot who was blatantly a Man U fan going on about where cavani’s foot was for the penalty, idiot!

We simply lost this game down to 4 main reasons!

1= Some absolutely DISGRACEFUL OFFICIATING! I mean how lee smith is even an official seeing that he’s just an overweight idiot who just was rubbish and I’m certain even Villa fans will agree on that! I mean I remember how he blew his whilst before Romou even touched their goalie along with many more delusional decisions! And Mike dean (VAR) was just taking the P1SS! I mean you can’t much more of a clearer pen as it didn’t hit his though so they’ve got no excuse for that one and with Ings he was level with the defender but just because his ARM (which doesn’t count as offside) was offside so is he!?

2= All of our injuries and our lack of squad depth which is simply down to our pathetic owner and some real bad luck!

3= Just poor form which has really affected our play as the likes of Ings hasn’t scored an open play goal since we played them in the reverse game!

4= Some absolutely DISGRACEFUL OFFICIATING! I mean how lee smith is even an official seeing that he’s just an overweight idiot who just was rubbish and I’m certain even Villa fans will agree on that! I mean I remember how he blew his whilst before Romou even touched their goalie along with many more delusional decisions! And Mike dean (VAR) was just taking the P1SS!

Look I really do think that fans need to do something about VAR now as you can’t celebrate after goals being scored anymore and LITERALLY every teams fans are fed up of them! I think that when we’re allowed back into stadiums I think when VAR is being used whe should go down into the bars until it’s done!
