    Have to say a point against Spurs is nothing to be sniffed at, I thought we'd get thrashed so well done the players and egg on my face.

    Got to keep it going now, still a steep hill to climb. Manager isn't going anywhere so got to hope we can pull out of this.

    1. Stephens needs to toughen up. I know Kane is a class player but Stephens was bullied on so many set pieces. If we dont bring a right sided CB in then id prefer to see Maya back in
    2. When we are sitting in, our defensive midfielders have a tendency to drop right on top of our CBs, giving opposition players too much room on the edge of the box to get shots away. We have certainly conceded in this manner a number of times this season (Palace second goal recent example), this needs addressed
    3. Again our frontman was isolated too often, hopefully we can address this through buying a pacy winger who can get up in support. Hojbjerg did ok in the advanced role but would rather see him in defensive midfield alongside Lemina.

    Hopefully if we can add a few additions, keep the workrate high and address some of the problems above, we'll be ok
    Excellent observations not picked up by our Manager ...

    Well, that was better and the icing on the cake was Southern Railways being on time BOTH ways! Chatting with the Spurs fans on the way home: they were complaining about the ref but I bought up the subject of Dembele..

    We played much more on the front foot until tiredness set in. Not sure Lemina is fully match fit but he was a lot snappier than in recent games and helped our higher press.

    It's a shame Sims isn't up to speed yet as I feel he'd have taken that late chance, but it's interesting to see a 17 year old debutante on against Spurs. Pellegrino talked about his pace, but if I went conspiracy theory for which this board is renowned it might be a subtle hint to Les about the resources available. Either way, the crowd were positive, the kid got appearance money and invaluable experience and his mates in the U23s (er.. U18s?) will all want to emulate him.

    The concept is quite simple really.

    Larry, you haven't noticed that the criticism he gets isn't for non-attendance? It's for consistently negative c**p, and always, I mean always looking at the negative aspects of any situation. HTH

    You obviously struggle greatly with simple concepts, that wasn't what D of S meant at all.

    You are not a Saints fan if you wanted us to lose yesterday.

    I agree with this, but I do question why our fitness regime can’t be as good as Tottenham’s.

    We’re supposed to be experts at sports science with our top class training facilities etc and we have a young squad of gifted players.

    Our players aren’t as fit as they were under Pochettino and Koeman/Kluitenberg. Alek Gross seems to be failing to deliver the fitness levels we used to have IMHO.

    To be fair Alpine, if you want Saints to lose your aren't really much of a supporter are you? You have been posting on here for years, the vast majority of it of which is negative or slags off the club. I wonder why you bother if things have been so bad for all these years?

    To be fair most of the comments that i read with regards you are judging you on the type of person you are not the type of fan. For someone to be consistently on a forum for the amount of time you have spent on here can only ever be a saints fan. You are however on negative mother ****er, but each to their own i guess.

    To be fair, he is entitled to his views whatever they are - this place is pathetic with it's narrow minded and closed group select few who the only ones allowed to comment and rest of us just have to swallow it like some cheap tart!

    Specifically, the observations made are not necessarily things he can affect in the midst of a match. EG Stephens needs to beef, or our midfield dropped too deep, we need to buy a pacy winger.

    It's the people that come on here lecturing those that criticise other posters that we need to be most wary of IMO...

He's going to be a pig in s**t.
    If we survive and get to midtable, I am more than happy to give Pellegrino another half season (if we're in trouble again, bye bye) and I said the same about Puel. With Puel I said that despite that, I would understand if the club sacked him - this time round I think we've learnt that we need to give managers time.

    Pellegrino should go even if we stay up. Criminally underperformed

    Thought we played much better and upped the tempo and attacking intent significantly. We did that until late on, when tiredness set in.

    Would love to see the midfield push up a bit and stay there though. The gap between them and the defence is too small at times and we are too deep as a result.

    Prowsey had a great game, he's finally starting to perform with a little more consistency.

    Stephens lost his man for the goal yet again. His marking in the box is really poor at times, not good really if you're a CB.

    So far, yes. But there have been glimpses of something impressive. If we make a couple of signings this month, finish strong and end up in midtable I would be OK with giving him another transfer window to further adapt the squad. Hopefully starting with Redmond and Forster out the door.

    His hair on Sunday was absolutely beautiful. I wonder what products he uses? He's got greys coming through, particularly on the fringe, but under the tv lights in the post match interview, it positively glowed. Breathtaking.

    What's hard to believe is that MoPo and MoPe are only 6 months in age difference! Looks more like 10 years. Does MoPo do bottox??

    Our Manager's winning rate is now down to 15.8%. The worst record of any permanent Saints manager/Coach. Even if we win 4 more games from the remaining 14, he would still only have a better record than Wigley.

    Glimpses. There have been games where we've played some very good football. You can count them on one hand, but they've been there.

    Currently W4, D10, L10. Pretty poor but if just two of those draws had been wins we'd be 10th now on 26 points. Small margins.

    Out of interest, anyone clock Les at the game on Sunday? You'd hope him and wee Ross have braved the Moscow snow, with a bottle of vodka each in hand, and a briefcase stuffed full of 75 big ones, ready to do some serious business.
