Southampton v Norwich City Your Report added by SaintPaulVW at 14:00:31
Enjoyed watching it. Just wish I didn't have to watch the last 20 minutes through my clenched fingers. We never make it easy for ourselves.

Just hope a bit of confidence is starting to embed itself.

COYS!

Congratulations to players, staff and fans. Ralph kept the 4-2-2-2 shape and we looked dangerousn and focused with a good game plan and could actually easily have been 4-0 up when Norwich suddenly scored to 2-1 with 30 minutes left. It then started to become a bit nervy, but we fought for the points - made some intelligent substitutions - and ultimately took the 3 points. Norwich could easily have equalised in injury time to be honest - which would have been a disaster - but fortunately Byrant missed his double chance, the first chance blocked by Yoshida, the second one he missed target. Ings continued his great goal scoring form and after 7 points from 3 games our season has more or less re-started - with top 10 suddenly very much within reaching distance. Let´s hope we keep it going and avoid injuries, and then who knows what we can achieve. I am glad the club stood by Ralph during the storm and it´s good to hear him express thankfulness for the club having kept trust in him and for the crisis learning experience which he has taken something good from. Good to see Bertrand score and now we need other players to start scoring some goals - not least Che Adams - good to see him get some playing time yesterday, and he did well with his energetic display.
All in all a great home win, and with 2 out of 2 we can hope that, once again, St. Mary´s will be a difficult place to come for our opponents. Now, let´s do all we can to beat Newcastle away on saturday. COYS! <3

Looked very nervous early on but grew in confidence as the game went on and well deserved at least a point.

Something to build on.

Ward Prowse is becoming a complete enigma, a sublime free kick does not mask a terrible first half from him and yet even in that his cheeky flick was the closest we came to scoring. He is one of only two sources of goals. Do we just have to take the bad with the good?

We have to do full on attack and hope to outscore teams until we get new defenders in. Stephens and Cedric both had largely poor games. Our attack however is the best it has been for a few years. Boufal and Long made a difference when they came on and we focused on attack.

I would make Ings captain as Hojbjerg was again one of our worse players and Ings was again one of our best and gives everything.

This result gives a little hope.....

IMPORTANT NOTE to Ralph Hasenhuttl...when we attack we CAN score goals ...and even gain valuable points.
When we defend we can't score goals and it only ends in tears.

Hopeful advice for the rest of the season.

Can’t believe no one has mentioned Boufal, them man has been a revelation in the last few games and is now living up to his reputation, he is exciting, gets the crowd going as much as it can St Mary’s and looks like something will happen every time he is on the ball. Danny Ings for captain the man cares about SFC 😇. Wrong game for Obafemi no room for him to run into as Watford sat too deep. What has Adams done wrong??? Still 3 points and finally got that home win so hopefully lost that monkey.

Thank god for Danny Ings. The only player for large parts of the game who looked like he wanted to be on the pitch and actually play positive football. Even the so called high press Ralph plays was poor apart from Ings. Without him we would be truly sunk this season.

Of the rest some good saves from McCarthy, no blame for the goal as woefully exposed by the defence. If JWP could kick a moving ball as well as a stationary one he might get some sympathy but his performance aside of the free kick was dreadful. Sadly he wasn’t alone!

We scraped a win & that's all that matters. But so many negatives about the performance. Redmond lucky to last 53 minutes, utter rubbish. Obafemi unfortunately looked out of his depth, his time will come. JWP was dire, but his free kick won the game, so what can you say. Stephens was a liability. zings worked his socks off & deserved his goal. Dlenepo came into the game once Redmond was eventually subbed & he was given more of the ball. A win but still so much to improve on.

Usual. We start off well. Concede at the first half decent chance. Fall apart. Come back together. Huff and puff and squander chances galore. Play well in the second half but get nothing......but crucially THIS time we pulled through. Hopefully we can stumble through the next few games in a similar style and get a few more wins. COYS!

Cedric, as people have already said was deadfull. but so were most of the rest. I thought Stephens and PEH were equally as poor. Maybe our captain could be employed as a cheer leader as it appears the only job he is cabable of? At least we won. and if we can do it again on wednesday then we will not be adrift and can look forwards with more hope.

If I was manager I would have taken Prowse off at half time as his was shite. All he done all game was score from a free kick.

Cedric was so poor and should not have been in the starting eleven. This was such a disappointing first half, very nervous touches and easily robbed of the ball. We were deservedly one down at half time and looked so poor in midfield. JWP got the bird from the crowd for his negative play but actually most of the team were more happy to go back than forwards. We actually looked like we were going to give a goal away whilst retreating.
Subs were desperately needed. Valery tho' far from perfect is streets ahead of Cedric and we not only looked better in defence we also had him to assist in attacks. Boufal may be a good sub player but we do need him on the pitch earlier, he makes things happen. How did Long not score?
JWP is an enigma, for most of the game he made me angry with his non-productive performance and I wanted him subbed, however, he scored a wonderful winning goal and it's goals that win matches. I guess he will be on the team sheet for the next match.
Please pinch me, did we really get three points with a home win?

If your looking for any positives other than we won there was not much to get excited about, we were dire until we equlised.We looked awful with JWP doing his usual sideways and backward passes and Redmond passing to everyone except our team.Still we won even though it looked very unlikely as we were so disjointed for so long,and when Stephens gifted the first goal to Watford l thought here we go again but we pulled this one out some how.
Going to have to play a lot better against Norwich if we want 3 points again, just wish we could be more consistent but this is our Saints never a dull moment or maybe that's not the right saying.

Is it really too much to expect experienced defenders to communicate with each other and deal with routine corners? Obviously it is, but what are the coaching staff doing? Four penalties and three reds (I think) so far this season is exceptional. And from where I sat it looked a nailed on red.

I know we had a good spell with 10 men - better than the first half with 11, and better balanced with 4 in defence and 4 in midfield until we imploded - but if we hadn't already given away a goal and a red card we wouldn't have had to chase the game and leave so many gaps.

Gutted to have come away with a point can’t believe Djenepo missed after Boufal’s amazing run. Plenty of positives to be taken though much improved effort, created numerous good chances, thought Stephens, Bednarek Armstrong, McCarthy, Ings and when Boufal was on all had good games. Hojbjerg and Soares and to a lesser degree JWP were liabilities. Play like that in our next few games and we may have a chance, only draw back will be playing at home with our ultra negative home support. If only we could back the team like we do away🙏😇

Be careful talking in any negative way about the boy as he has a very large extended family, from the Portsmouth area (skates), and they all seem to frequent this site.
