Wanyama was shown up by a good midfielder today Kante,

felt we should've got something out of it really. The key difference was the quality of the final ball: Leicester's was generally decent, ours was generally poor - a recurring theme.
I thought Pelle had a bad game overall, although as I say he didn't receive great service. On the plus side, van Dijk was brilliant. I think he has everything that a great CB needs - really hope we can keep him.
As for the two penalty shouts that Ron was complaining about... for me, the ref probably got both right. The only way Simpson could've avoided it was if he had no arms (it would've hit his body anyway), and the ball hit Huth so quick that he couldn't do anything else. I suspect others on here will disagree! I'd be annoyed if either decision was given against us and, tellingly, there wasn't much appealing from the players.
But I did think that Clasie was fouled for their goal - clear push from Morgan

Absolutely bloody dire! Why is it always us? Whenever there is a choice of which Saints will turn up why is always the clueless, lacklustre one?
Where was the passion, the drive, the energy needed to clinch our European place?
I give up!
Mediocrity is the name of our game. Only Fraser earned any credit today and he alone saved us from humiliation, the rest of the layabouts were already on summer vacation.

Wanyama did an excellent job controlling Mahrez, which, after the initial 15 minute onslaught enabled Saints to take control of the game. If that penalty had been given, we'd have got the draw we deserved.

In my opinion and only slightly biased. Both handballs were penalties , the huth one he was hanging his hand out to stop the ball . The first one ,(after mane took an age to shoot could've chipped the keeper )Simpson seemed to beat the ball down with his elbow . Their goal Jordy was pushed so out of those big decisions we got nothing? ..same old same old , if we had got something from the ref our own confidence would've grown . They, Leicester, were good and quick ,we couldn't get the fall of the ball and when we did they were on us like a flash .
They seemed to get lucky and we never seen to get any luck story of our season .
Vardy needs a good kicking by someone to bring him down a peg or two , got very arrogant like how dare you tackle me ...tw@t.

I don't understand the negativity. Saints deserved at least a point and probably all three. We were the better side, had a clear penalty/red card not given and then conceded a goal that was a foul.
I want Leicester to win the league and I don't think they have been lucky over the season but they were lucky today, but then all champions have their luck - I just wish it hadn't have come against us!

I agree that we were unlucky to come away with nothing. However, we showed a lack of tactical awareness and flexibility. It was obvious from early on that Morgan and Huth were able to dominate Pelle in the air, yet we continued to pump in hopeful crosses often from only just inside the half way line. We should have had Mane on Huth's shoulder throughout. The only way through that defence was on the deck as was proved in the first half.
