Poor team selection, we needed better than a makeshift defence. All the good attacking work will come to nothing if we just squander every chance without hitting the target. JWP particularly guilty of this last night. Adams needs to break his duck really quickly or we are going to drift off the pace again.

Interesting isn't it. Last week we played well in the first half but lost. This week we didn't play as well but got 2 really good goals and won. Looking at these comments though you would have thought we had lost again. I agree though with some of the above Boufal deserves a start.

We deserved something after that first half performance. Same old story though all over them and can't convert into goals. Ings almost knicked something though and Evans really should have scored in the first half.

Gunn was great, Bednarek is now infected with dodgy CB disease, Djenepo looks good. Not too sure I want to see Evans crossing from the wingto Redmond in the box too often. Not really what we pay him for!

All in all a lot better than last week but now left with that agonising 'if only' feeling. COYS!

Disaster darling!

Only positive is Che didn't get sent off for that clodhopper challenge.

Looked evenly matched but then Vestergaard drops a bol0k and it all goes pear shaped. Hey ho, we march on!

Dull game which showed really why we are where we are. All our full backs had already mentally packed and gone on holiday, our strikers were back to their old tippy tappy hesitant ways trying to pass the ball into the net rather than shoot, and an individual error in defence cancelled out a great goal and from a winning position...again.

Best bit about the game: Iron Fran at half time and his reception

Bit that totally summed up the game:the bloke 'running' on the pitch, bowing to every stand while being pursued at an equally slow rate by the groundstaff, who also looked like they couldn't really be bothered.

Thank F that season is over. Hope Ralph is given what he needs to have a good crack at next year. Best wishes to all Saints fans for a great summer.

I saw things a bit differently from most of the above. This is just my perspective but Ely looked a lot better to me, that's not too much praise as he was dire earlier in the season. His final ball was better and he did some good stuff of the Ings and long non scoring variety but that doesn't count for much with most people, Armstrong was totally lightweight and ineffective , I'm leaning towards the flog him off camp as our midfield is so strong, and poor old Forster was looking okay but fell off fast and looks spent, ......that second goal jeez. Until Redmond came on we looked to be preparing for our summer break . Ralph hopefully was using this free game to look at a few players but if that was a serious team picked to get a result against West Ham, he made a big mistake. Oh well, bring on next season, this one is done.

Great game to watch, we played really well for 90% of the game. A point away at Watford is worth having.

A bit frustrating that we just couldn't capitalise on all our other chances or hang on to our lead but yet again we seem to struggle for hold on to the ball and manage the game when we are trying to hang on to a lead. Enormous pressure on all the defenders not to make a single error. I'm sure the usual suspect will cop some undeserved flak for a mistake caused by effectively the whole team.

Shane Long now a positive pub quiz answer who ever would have thought!

Frustrating. We matched them for most of the game. PEH was immense. Shane Long almost seemed dumbstruck when the chance fell to him! Good to see some attacking substitutions but our late game management sucks. This was a free hit, just need those 2 wins and based on how we playefwe should be okay. COYR!

Can only Marvel at how different the two halves were. Was praying we wouldn't let another goal in in the first half our 3 centre backs looked lost at sea at times.

But then.....great work by Ralph in changing formation and great to see Simms grab his chance. COYR!

Darn it! Cracking game to watch though.

We hung in there at the start, came good, came back and just couldn't hang on. If we keep playing like that tho we'll beat the drop.

Wonder if Ryu Bertrand is still feeling his Street Fighter 2 tackle on Lukaku.lol.

Oh dear. Jack Stephens hero to villain in 2 minutes.

Thought we were lacking in all departments today.

I thought it would be nip and tuck until the end of the season. Sadly I think I was right.

Good stuff! Not too sure why JWP is coming in for so much stick on here. He put a shift in today. Solid penalty, remember we don't always score them. He still needs to bulk up and win tackles though.

Big improvement for everyone today. RH has got them drilled well. Why Romeu didn't play under Hughes is beyond me, he's a beast! Vestergaard, Targett and Stephens although not flawless all took steps forward. Shame that Valery showed his age.

Very happy with that. 2nd half was edge of the seat stuff and great to see Shane make me eat my words about him. A few new additions, increasing confidence and a manager with a system will see us turn a corner. Phew! COYR!

Derby County v Southampton Your Report added at 20:00:12
We just didn't look convincing. Redmond was great, Austin anonymous, JWP did some good stuff but he needs to bulk up and start winning tackles. Gunn showed that any keeper is vulnerable behind our back line. Ely's first touch is still awful. Vestergaard goes to ground too easily. Targett and Cedric didn't really inspire. The youngsters were pretty good and giving them a bit of game time and resting a few can't hurt.

We looked about par with Derby, which makes sense really. Our big problem is we can only be set up to either defend or attack. At the moment, we don't seem to be able to be set up to do both in a match. We really really need a few new faces.

Difficult one. To my mind Ralph had obviously decided that we were going to probably get nothing out of this game so decided to rest a few players and play a few youngsters. Fair enough, it's about staying up this season and you don't have to win every game to do that.

Inability to defend a header in the box did for us. The third goal was a duffer too. We were up against it for most of the game but had a short spell when we looked good.

Ely's (aside from that beautiful ball to Austin) first touch was abysmal and Lemina didn't look like he had come back from his holiday. Aguero showed Austin what a striker is supposed to do with half a chance. Stonking goal from PEH, shame about the mad challenge though.

Long probably needs to be moved on in January, Lemina, Austin also if we need a bit of dosh.

All the things that were wrong before are still wrong but the players are playing with confidence and that is making such a difference. Don't know whether it's the system or the training methods.

Defenders are still making mistakes but don't seem to have the fear that one error will cost them the game. Attackers are still either over passing or blazing over but have confidence to run at goal rather than invariably stop and pass back you can see the improvement. Really, really, impressed in what RH has done in such a short space of time.

Bring on the rest of the season.

The defense was just appalling. Every time one of the back 4 had it, it was a heart in the mouth moment we could have given a goal away. You can see why Bednarak hasn't played and why we didn't cash in on Targett still escapes me. Valery looked his age.

Attack was toothless. Romeu still looks good, Redmond good until the final ball, Armstrong and Lemina both back to being lightweights again.

Ralph has an awful lot of work to do and fancy deadball plays are not going to get us out of trouble.

Oh and FFS Vestergard. Lol. COYR
