what a game..21nd half end to end..desperate defending, bodies on line to block any shot. On top of that McCarthy pulls off a great save in the last minute of added time.
More entertainment than any of the Puel or Pellegrinos performances put together.
If we keep that up, the miracle could still be on

Some of the best goalkeeping from a saints player for years, some were pure magical to watch,saves with all parts of his body the way it should be.Everyone played a part today was so refreshing to see everyone pulling together, Lemina and Romeu were top class this week. Tadic finally put it all together and was a class apart.Were still in with a shot of staying up if we can keep this up Coyr.

Much needed performance and result. I feel more confident now, especially when you look at Huddersfield's remaining fixtures

Phew!!! That last 20 minutes has caused me to double the dose on my blood pressure tablets. Nail biting to say the least. So many times this season it's been like that only for the defence to finally give up a goal, usually scored by Giroud! Not this time. Yes there were times when we were screaming for a forward pass but once again, there was no one there. But forget the critical analysis for once. Everyone put in a major shift today. Tadic was a master and exhausted by the time he went off. Lemina gave flashes to remind us how good we all thought he was at the beginning of the season before he went into some weird shell. The back three were mostly steady but did get caught for pace on several occasions. And McCarthy was immense. Two unbelievable saves - one with his foot at almost point blank range and the deflected effort at the end is save of the season. So a great effort from everyone, including the crowd. By far the best atmosphere of the season, especially at the final whistle. But here's a question... with five minutes left and the game as tense as it was with so much at stake, how the hell can people leave? I don't care if you're parked in front of someone or have to get a bus - get the next one. Okay, if we're losing and out of it, go if you must, but in a situation like today, decent fans (and most did) stay and cheer the lads on. COYS

Well done Tadic & Lemina especially, just hope its not too little too late. Scraping a win against Bournemouth at home does say rather a lot about where we are now as opposed to where we used to be a couple of years ago.

Amazing what a bit of adversity brings out in people, just a pity that’s what it takes to get the team and fans on board. Tadic , Macarthy, Romeu and Lamina all had great games. But i was impressed with Bednarek for someone young and very little experience of the premier league has come into the team and gone about his business. All to play for then Saints, hopefully not a flash in the pan. UTS.

Couldn't agree more about fans leaving early - I was amazed - is there only one bus back to some places? McCarthy gave the best Saints goalkeeping performance since Kelvin's away display at Leeds. That save at the end was nothing short of world-class and I seriously hope he's signed up for next season. Lemina showed what he can do and I can only think his health or his head haven't been right for most of his time with us. There are some downsides - Hoedt doesn't look good enough to me and neither is Redmond. I also think that he and Bertrand don't want to or can't play with each other. Bednarek shows promise but lacks pace and Tadic once again showed what a good player he can be if some of his teammates are performing. Romeu was also effective similar to last season but there were still too many misunderstandings and wayward passes. I'm not sure that Swansea will be relegated and we might be wishing that they beat Stoke to help us. Three points might well keep us up at Huddersfield's expense.

Great to be able to celebrate a win, of course. But most of all, the display of spirit by most of the team gives some hope. Every week McCarthy makes it look more and more absurd that FF stayed in the side so long. He was the difference. If you get that kind of goalkeeping, and then Tadic, Lemina playing well, things tend to go right. In defence, Bednarek so far looks superior to Hoedt who has been awful for a while now...two weeks in a row he essentially gave up goals by ducking when a cross came in! Anyhow, good for now!

A bit more like the old Saints with players trying. Lemina was my man of the match pity he didn’t preform like this earlier. Just a pity we took so long to get rid of Mope. Same players but putting in more efforts but did we leave it to late.

Tadic has been rubbish, let's get rid said clueless load of t*ssers who know jack shiiite about football. Hoedt, get 2 cruciates you pointless slow clod. Romeu , stop and get a job walking slowly, you are really good at that. Long, give up playing fusball you are pointless. Redmond, just go................. anywhere.Prowse........... don't come on the pitch, just don't mr Ploddy ploddy do nothing.
