Defence so bad in the final 20 gaps everywhere sitting deep and the serious lack of options at the back to call upon

This right back issue has caused us a big problem. I' was never a Cedric fan and preferred Valery but with JWP injured we seem to have no-one. I would have preferred Yoshida at right back With JWP back in his normal position and the defence not messed around with by moving Jack Stephens to right back . However, Maya has left, almost criminal to release him.
The next game with injuries and bans will expose a new line up in defence and that sense of optimism is beginning to fade.
Finally what a brilliant goal by Ings and provided by Redmond, one of the best I have seen from a Saints team

We have wingers and midfielders who offer little threat in terms of goals. Plus no defenders who score from set plays. Further we create loads of chances, enough to have beaten Liverpool and spurs by a good margin. We lack any kind of clinical edge or composure. What I have seen of shooting practice is kicking in from the edge of the area or dummies blocking the goal. Surely one should create realistic defence set ups for players to produce under real pressure .... oh oh back to not enough good defenders.

The fall out from this game is that we are without JWP possibly for the rest of the season, do not have a proven or match fit RB and lack cover in CB. Stephens has stepped up incredibly and has grown into the role of CB so to play him at RB for the rest of the season will be a massive loss.
Not many fans are happy with their boards activity but ours seem to be intent on taking unnecessary risk after unnecessary risk in order to save a few million quid. Ridiculous.

The owners threw the match away with their naive use of the transfer surplus as usual. Will come home to roost now the injuries are staring to pick up. Never should have moved Cedric on or Yoshida or Sims or.......................................
