|When you are in the relegation zone...|
at 22:14 4 Dec 2019
It really doesn't matter how you win. I think a bit of perspective is needed - after the 9-0 and the Everton game I honestly thought we were screwed. The last three games we have shown the fight that we have all been clamouring for, and many of us (myself included) though didn't exist. Arsenal, Watford, Norwich - 7 points.
Yes, we got lucky against Watford, we also had a bit of luck again tonight. I'm not saying we have been (anywhere near) setting the world alight, but the first half especially today we looked like we were back to playing some of our best stuff again. Full marks to the boys, it takes some guts to battle like we have done recently, especially in light of the utter shambles we have been served up this season. Tonight I saw the spirit we have all been calling for. OK its only Watford and Norwich, let's not get carried away - but as much as we like to criticise the players when they don't perform, it's also important to say fair play when they battle like they did.
Proud of the boys!

Great win today, absolutely shocking first half, looked like Everton all over again. Second half not exactly world beating but got the job done so who really cares?
I was watching Redmond today, his performance was once again not good at all and his body language off the ball suggests he is not a happy boy at the moment. I think we've seen Redmond drop off quite a lot this season, he's returned to the days of checking back and passing backwards rather than attempt to beat a man or take on the shot. Reminds me a lot of his performances prior to last season when he seemed to have broken through and really looked like kicking on, potentially becoming a very good player.
Considering Boufal's performance today, surely Redmond should be benched for the Norwich game? Also thought Obafemi was awful today, Watford's defenders will not have an easier game all season. In light of the chat about Ralph calling him out in public, I suspect there's definitely an issue somewhere with his antics behind the scenes. Surprised he was handed another start to be honest.
Finally credit where credit is due, Ralph seems to have attracted a lot of criticism for his subs but today he got it spot on. Boufal and Long changed the game completely for us, it was only once they came on that we looked remotely dangerous going forward

Watching Norwich v Watford, watford I think will have enough to get them
Out of trouble.
Norwich look very much like us, in fact it is almost like watching us play in this game, surreal. Slow laboured build up, get into half decent positions to cross the ball, final ball very poor, edge of the box speculative shot, over the bar, groans from the crowd. When we play them it will be I think one of the lowest quality games of the season. I can see a 3 3 draw, we have had a few high scoring games against them over the years. Either way one or both of us is going down
|Fantastic half by the boys!!|

Absolutely superb first half, so different to the Tuesday game. Seeing a lot of dedication, the boys look right up for it. Yes we are camped inside our own half for practically the entire game, but we are putting in much more of a shift than I think we have seen over the last few games. Proud of the boys with that half, well done Saints

This is absolutely pathetic. Another training ground match. Is this supposed to be Saints showing some spirit? Is this supposed to be us showing some pride? Disgusted by this team
|where do you start|

Bertrand aside (who is hardly setting the world alight) we don't have a single player in our gk / defence dept who is premier league quality. The same story as always - start brightly, put on a squeeze, then you just know well gift them a couple of goals and its pretty much job done.
Spineless half that, how many times has that been said lately. f@cking infuriating!!
Get JWP off at HT, bring on boufal and let's see. Chelsea are very suspect at the back, but the chances of us scoring two or more and not conceding are practically zero
|We're doing ok!|

But my god I wish Redmond would just f@cking shoot sometimes! Back to the old days of dribble dribble dribble looking dangerous, getting close to the box now here we go ahhhh feet going too fast sh!t sh!t sh!t stumble tackle attack over.
I say get vestergaard off, valery on at half time, push jwp forward (he is absolutely not a right back) 4 at the back might as well go for it with spurs down to 10
|Assuming redmond is out for Man Utd...|

Who do we want to see come in? I’m guessing it’ll be Boufal or Djenepo, my pick would be Boufal.
This seems to be one area at least where we have genuine strength in depth!
