Ralph says he's not concerned about Jack Grealish tomorrow, and he won't be targeted for specific defensive attention.
'We are ball defending orientated' or words to that effect. Apparently there are only a couple of strikers in the Premiership that require special attention according to him.
So that's alright for tomorrow then.

Terrible defending again, particularly Stephens - again.
Why oh why did they not bring in a central defender?
It's almost like they're doing it deliberately to piss us all off.

'Saints defender Jack Stephens demands an improvement ahead of Aston Villa tie'.
More nonsensical patronising drivel from this arse wipe newspaper.
Some of the comments are good though...

We're having the piss taken out of us...

Need at least two early January or we are sunk.

Looked out of his depth against Watford, and then looked annoyed when he was subbed. Why he looked annoyed I don't know. He's nowhere near as good as he appears to think he is.
Why is Che Adams not being given a chance, is he injured or what? The bloke is a proven goal scorer and the only way he's going to get back into that form is on the pitch.
And why is Danso also not being played at centre back?
Watching Stephens pass the ball to Sarr for his goal - nothing could be worse than that.I'm sure Yoshida would at least have made an attempt to get the ball back, but Stephens just ran idly alongside Sarr making no attempt to do anything. Pathetic defending.
We're lucky Danny Ings remains injury free.
I like Ralph, but I still find some of his team selections bizarre. Another example is Cedric. It's obvious from his body language on the pitch he thinks we are beneath him and as such he doesn't give a shit, whereas Valery is straining to get out there and play. Why start Cedric? he contributes nothing.

Played well for Celtic, scored (albeit a little lucky) and seeing comments like 'good work and a fine cross from Elyounoussi' in reports.
So what was the problem while he was here? Played out of position or what?
Forster looks a different player as well.
Maybe they built St. Mary's on top of an ancient cemetery or something and the place is jinxed.

On this showing, apparently not.
I've lost count of the times we've seen a totally bizarre line up that flies in the face of what any logical person / manager would put on the pitch up against a side that are there for the taking but are at least set up using the best players available.
With Bertrand on the bench, Valery not even on the bench, Danso and Soares completely out of position, it was no surprise to see Bournemouth two up at half time. Why oh why does he do this?
Everybody else in the stadium would have started with Bertrand on the left and Soares on the right
with Danso (or Yoshida) and Bednarek. The fumbling Vestergaard should without doubt be benched.
The second half performance was transformed, even though Ward Prowse blazed the ball over from goal scoring positions at least three times. Not once, but three or more. Do they implement shooting practice??
If they had started with the right players in the right positions in the first half, we would be three points better off this morning.
It just seems to be 'I'll do it my way' from Ralph. Well sorry pal, it's wearing a bit thin.

Only a matter of time before they bring him on

Just called Vetsergaard the 'big Dutch defender' following taliking about nothing but Manure for the previous 50 minutes.

Not Premiership quality they said.

Covered in glory already.
Luckily their goal was offside

After this big centre back.
Apparently will fix the leaks in the defence.

21 year old Saints defender on loan at Gillingham. Looked solid in their game against Millwall.
If they're not bringing in any more defenders, does he have a call back clause in his loan contract?
I didn't see him play for the under 23's, any thoughts on his potential?
