3.7 is very generous for the hapless Bazunu. He was the difference between the two teams. With an average Championship goalkeeper instead of Bazunu, who the stats show is the worst in the league by a country mile, we'd have won this game.

Liverpool v Southampton Your Report added at 22:39:37
A good performance from our starting eleven. Our starting midfield was outstanding, put Liverpool under constant pressure and created lots of chances. We could easily have been 2 or 3 goals ahead with better finishing. THEN, our substitutes came on and we collapsed. The arrival of the hapless of Smallbone ruined our midfield. He stroleld around, looking lost, making little effort to win the ball and when he did get it, he kicked it towards our goal, not Liverpool's. He didn't even manage to kick the ball sideways, let alone forwards. We'd have been better off with ten men.

Holgate and Manning have weakened an already weak defence.

I'd give Sam Amo-Ameyaw an 8 or a 9 for the time he was on the pitch. What a brilliant debut that was from Saints' youngest ever Premier League player. He was dribbling past Liverpool players like they were training cones.

Sulemana was brilliant too. He looked the best player on the pitch for either side and sprinted 3/4 of the length of the pitch with the ball for his 2nd goal. It deserved to be on the shortlist for MOTD's Goal of the Season but I guess that were chosen before yesterday's games.

Last night reminded me of the Grimsby game. We looked like a poorly motivated, disorganised rabble that would struggle even at lower league level.

I thought Stuart Armstrong and Che Adams were good when they came on; the rest of our players weren't.

Bournemouth have a bunch of mediocre players but even they looked superior to our poor excuse for a team.

I don't think I've seen so many misplaced passses from any other Premier League team this season, not even ours. It's the sort of thing you might see in a poor lower league team but not at this level. There was a shocking lack of team play. It was as if our players were strangers to each other, who didn't have a clue where the others were going to be or what they were going to do.

Southampton v Brentford Your Report added at 23:12:51
It was just like the good old days. Now, we've got Forster back in goal it's almost like 2016 again. He really makes a massive difference to the way the whole team, perform. Saints are becoming a very formidable team at St Mary's, with only one defeat all season.

There were some great performances from Ward-Prowse, Broja, Diallo etc etc. It was good to see Che Adams come on and score and it was really good to see Saints finish the second half of a game so strongly. There was almost a carnival atmosphere as everybody, except the Brentford fans who had to listen to "You're just a small town in Reading," as their team was totally outclassed, enjoyed a comfortable victory.

Crystal Palace v Southampton Your Report added at 23:21:23
"Southampton have dropped 73 points from winning positions in the Premier League since Ralph Hasenhuttl took charge of the club." The next worst team in the league has only dropped 57.

It's shocking that as soon as we take the lead, the manager, players and fans are thinking, 'Can we hang on for a point?' It's got so bad now that we even think yet another 2 points dropped is a point gained.

Long and Walcott should not have been brought on tonight. When they come on it is a signal to everyone that we are only going to try to hang on for a point. We certainly aren't going to score a winning goal with those two.

I felt the win was there for the taking tonight against a fragile Palsce side. I hope that pulling off Broja and Tella pays off against Brentford with a win because if it doesn't, our winless run will extend to 8 and we'll be staring at releagtion.

Broja looks like the young Shearer. We should play him every minute that we can before he goes back to Chelsea at the end of the season. His goals are our best hope of staying up.

Southampton v Aston Villa Your Report added at 01:02:26
It looked like Villa were there for the taking. Minus their star players and anticipating their fifth consecutive defeat, they began the game, like Leeds Reserves did, low on confidence and hoping they wouldn't suffer a heavy defeat. A 6-0 Saints win wouldn't have been surprising. But our players came out after the half -time talk clearly under instructions to just hang on to a 1-0 lead. It worked, just.

A win is a win so credit to Ralph and the players for delivering it. Great to see Adam Armstrong score and our defence keep yet another clean sheet. 1-0 to the Southampton is becoming familiar. If we win most of our remaining games 1-0, this will be a brilliant season.

We were unlucky not to win that. Nearly all the incisive attacking football came from us. City didn't have a single shot on target until the 90th minute.

Southampton v Leeds United Your Report added at 10:44:15
We nearly always fall apart in the last half hour of games and it's just a question of how many goals the oppostion will score then. So our only hope of getting a draw would have been to have Ings on in the first half, when we were playing well, to give us a lead. Surely, we can't continue with McCarthy next season. He is just too hesitant and erratic. He must be the only Premier League goalkeeper who lets in goals from such narrow angles when he is at his near post. Top flight goalkeepers should never be beaten there but opposition players know about McCarthy's weakness and capitalise on it.

A shout out to Fraser Forster for making some fine saves as he closes in on his 200th clean sheet, which will hopefully be in the FA Cup Final.

Elijah, the reason everyone is 'going on' about McCarthy is that this is obvious to everyone else but you haven't noticed it or, at least, pretend not to:

In his last 6 games Forster has let in 1 goal

In his last 6 games McCarthy has let in 23 goals

Everton v Southampton Your Report added at 13:06:13
Forster has let in 1 goal in his last 5 games, which have mostly been against top teams: Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton.

McCarthy has let in 18 goals in his last 5 games and according to Opta stats, he is the worst hoalkeeper in the Premier League with the poorest save per shot percentage. He saves almost nothing, and there were 2 saves Forster made v Everton which McCarthy wouldn't have. If he'd been playing, we'd have lost 3-0.

Those first 2 names in the lineups are what we were missing today. Let's hope Walker-Peters recovers quickly but there is absolutely no excuse for picking McCarthy ahead of Fraser Clean Sheet Forster. He hasn't let a single goal in this season. What more can he do?

Make that Lee Mason and Mike Dean (VAR) + the linesmen. That was possibly the worst team of officials we have ever had to suffer at St Mary's.

I gave Vestergaard 10/10. How anyone could give him less than 9 for a Man of the Match performance like that, I do not know. It was like watching a bigger version of Beckenbauer.

Good performance from Saints. The key difference was that Redmond fluffed a chance for us that Sterling would have scored from.

Superb team performance. A special mention for Jack Stephens who playing on his 'wrong side' at left back did everything that was asked of him against a team who have exposed the frailties of full backs like Valery and Targett in the past.

Captain Fantastic, James Ward-Prowse, is looking more and more like a future England captain. They were all good but Armstrong and Adams also deserve a special mention. What well-taken goals they were.

A six-match unbeaten run now. Let's just keep that going. and see what happens. We're already nearly a quarter of the way through the season.
