Don't be too unkind to Valery. He hasn't played for months and apart from that disastrous moment he had an all right game. Plenty of other players made mistakes but were not punished with a goal. The team played as a team and it was good to see them consoling Moussa and also Valery. We might not like the result but it was a very spirited display. Before the red card we were well in control and afterwards defended courageously and with energy. Hate the result but pleased with the team.

Their big players have beaten us home and away.

So many bad points and difficult to name a player who had even an average game.

RH what a bad team selection. Why does he refuse to play Valery and release Jwp to play in midfield?

A very sleepy performance and not what I was expecting.

I believe that RH picks a better team when he doesn't exercise his limited brain power.

Play your best players in their best positions RH, it is that simple.

Incidentally, if any other player than Ings had made that horrendous error that conceded a goal then we would be demanding he never, ever, wore a Saints shirt again. I know, he scored a great goal.

I think I'm suffering from depression, It's so difficult being a Saints fan.

I just feel so sorry for the team, they played with lots of spirit and were the better side. They must have been terribly dejected last night.
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

A great watch and at half time we could have been leading. Friend only gave us free kicks on the halfway line. How was that passback ignored?

Very disappointed that everyone is giving such a low mark to our team, they played really well and with a better ref we could have won

Ball retention by back passing and playing at walking pace across the back four was boring to watch, totally unambitious and disgraceful.
We should have given Adams a game. Oh, I just heard he was playing.
Boufal who I love to see for his tricks gave the ball away far too often and his attitude was again questionable.
Well done JWP for playing but with his recent efforts, he was the first on my list to get a rest.
Well done Smallbone and Vokins for their goals but they are a long way away from bursting into the first team.
Has Romeu aged? He does look unfit and tired in body and mind.
Will Danso ever get a chance to play as a CB? He is not a wing-back.
Good news tho'! We Won (as we should have done)

Great leadership in defence, great performance by Stephens, great goals by Obafemi and Redmond, great management in team selection and timely substitutes, great midfield with Armstrong making strong offensive moves supported by JWP and our captain, great goalkeeping controlling our penalty area, great all-round team performance by the settled team and a great big smile on my face.

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?

Credit to Spurs for parking the bus and denying us any goals. We did have the chances and LLoris made up for his showbiz error with several quality saves. We didn't get enough crosses in but we didn't have the numbers or height in the box anyway and I never thoughta simple cross would be the answer. Our hopes rested on ball skills and penetrating passes, sadly lacking from both Hojbjerg and JWP.
What has Valery done wrong in the head of RH that he was not selected in the first place and not immediately selected when Cedric went lame. A change of system in the last few minutes prior to kick-off is quite incredible.
Their first goal was as a result of not having a proper right back, Hojbjerg leaving the eventual goalscorer unmarked and slow reactions from Gunn. The second, well it was Kane again!
The subs were strange, Ings removal baffling and did Obafami or Long have a touch of the ball?
I don't like over rection but if we dropped Gunn, JWP, Hojbjerg, Vestergaard I would not be disappointed.
Boufal and Redmond are trying hard, we just need others to join in. We will beat other sides, we are playing like a mid table team not a relegation candidate.

I felt sorry for Adams who just does not get in the right place to score. I can't see him breaking his duck unless he is fortunate enough to have a goal handed to him on a plate. In a very competitive premier league we can only carry him for so long and that must be soon.

A disallowed goal because of a few inches offside, a penalty not given for a clear foul,.this could have been a five-nil thrashing. What the heck is going on in RH's mind that he thinks it clever to play his team in strange positions? We will have Che Adams in goal next!
All credit to Boufal and Romeu who are both playing well.
Others in the team are not and several whose names are automatically placed on the team sheet need reassessing.
I'm afraid the honeymoon period for RH has finally ended.

There are some exciting days ahead with Djenepo, Boufal and Redmond mesmerising defences. I fully expect Adams to regularly hit the back of the net soon.
Vestergaard had a very poor game and showed up all sorts of problems but will he feature in our next match?
Has Valery recovered fully? I would have expected him to have started, tho Cedric didn't cost us a goal this match!
Romeu was in control in the midfield and was always available to start an attack, that's what we want to see.
We were not in total control of the match but there was plenty of positive play and good spirit, the three points will boost the confidence of the whole squad.

Two great performances by the subs. Great strike by Moussa and mesmerising runs from Sofiane. A little disappointed with Hojbjerg who hasn't reached last seasons standard I agree that JWP and Ings had low average games.
We gave Danso a start and he played well out of position, it may be a while before he plays as a CB, difficult to judge, we will have to rely on Hutch's assessment.
We must persevere with Valery, he hasn't cost us goals yet as Cedric regularly did, tho again it wasn't his best day.
The main point is that we are now off and running, a certain three points next week and we will be in the top half of the table.

Who first said 'a game of two halves'? This game reminded me of games played under RK where we would get the runaround in the first half and then a decisive player/ system change with a victory and the manager's reputation goes sky high.
Spurs must have come out to start the second half thinking the game was already won and they would increase their score. How wrong were they!
I'm no expert so cannot explain our dire first half performance nor the classy play by Spurs but for a Saints fan it was an utter joy to turn this game around.
Symes came on with a point to prove and was electric, he played with no inhibition and his example spread throughout the side. It was a shame that Long was injured but again Armstrong came on and played well creating the goal for Valery. ( Cedric fans time to change allegiance!)
The transformation that is James Ward Prowse continues. He is a tougher player and now plays with a smile. Well done the manager for bringing out the best in him and several other players.
Now let's just salivate over that free kick, what a strike. It's a long time since we had a player that we now expect to score in those situations.
I'm a happy chappy tonight!
