Same old thing 22 attempts 1 goal to show for it, l like the look of Gabbi looks like he will make a difference.Defense in the middle still looking very shakey although Yoshida was as usual fairly steady, Stephens will be eaten alive against United and l fear for a blowout.Just praying VVD can somehow come back earlier than expected, will be waiting for the interview with Puel to hear the same excuses again.

Les Reed has questions to answer. Total lack of strategic thinking - the very thing he is supposed to provide. Doesn't matter whether it was arrogance or ineptitude- he has failed. We have a squad of very average players who are collectively under-performing. Losing a Euro Champs winning centre half was only the most recent spectacular error. Saints fans will view the final with some trepidation...

Should have kept Fonte and sold Rodriguez.

For me despite a disappointing result, the team tried, albeit too deep. We play much better when we press higher up the pitch.
Gabbi looked exciting and worked hard.
The worst part for me, (and here come all the negative votes) was the crowd. Never in my life have I felt like an away fan at home. Every time I go to watch Saints the crowd is singing. Today was like a library. West ham fans sang when the saints go marching in more than our own. In fact it was the 64th minute by the time it began to be heard by our own. The West Ham fans dominated the stadium with their 95 minutes of singing, it is no wonder our guys didn't perform so well without our 12th man

Enough is enough Claude the clown has to go and wishful thinking for reed to go as well after all he is the architect of this shambles.

I simply cannot get over the fact that the club thought it safe to not bring in a CB. The equaliser today said it all. I can't see another clean sheet until VVD returns and given our usual shots to goal ratio that means we are in trouble. We looked and played like relegation candidates today. Wet Spam are not a very good side but they beat us on our own ground without breaking sweat. I would happily settle for 40 points and getting through the final without humiliation - that would actually be an achievement for us now. The high of Anfield now seems a very long time ago.

Today we had plenty of luck, trouble was it was all bad luck. Over twenty shots, many on target and from what I saw, every one of our players was playing his heart out. Gabbi looks a good buy and apart from scoring, he also seemed to be up for the fight as well.
I think Wet Spam got lucky today, Carroll was his usual self which we failed to neutralise, but their other goals were both dealt with a large slice of luck which on another day, would have been blocked or dealt with by our defenders.
With defenders in mind, I thought Yoshi had a solid day and Stephens whilst trying his best was clearly nervous and will benefit from his team-mates experience.
So we live to fight another day and on another day where the opposition is less lucky, we could either gain the three points or bring home a cup. Despite some saying the fans were quiet, I and those in my area were very vocal and got right behind the team, I intend to keep roaring them on.

Same old, same old, start well score then sit back and invite trouble, play to the final third then back to midfield, stand off and let them play. We are not moving the ball fast enough or accurately enough, not closing down, just to many NOTS. Puel doesn't give interview analysis, just excuses and seems to blame the players,he coud put his comments on disc and just give it out as it's always the same.

Well said SanMarco Saints are a joke. les reed should be shot for not bring in a CH. Today was a total embarrassment our defence is shite. Relegation is now a possibility thanks to REED.
