    All set up for a 1-0 Cardiff win.

    We've been awful. Long has been invisible.

    can see us subbing a CB for a more advanced player.
    hard to press them high up to win the ball when they dont use their midfield

    30 minutes of possession, 4 corners, and no real chances (and yes I know that we do have 2 SOG, but I could have stopped them)

    JWP yellow car - silly place/time to get it, really.

  9. Default

    Total lack of sharpness up front without Ings and Gabiaddini. Contained comfortably by them really.. Need to mix it up second half of lose to a break away or set piece goal.

    It's got 0-1 written all over it. We're back to powder puff home performances by the look of it.

    I hate professional fouls, but that's one I don't think he had much option with.

    Bertrand's return has been impressive - very little else has been. Has to replace Long; I'd rather Austin at H/T, or even Elynoussi. Awful half of Football.

    Awful half of football, wish we would just shoot more outside the box more rather than have one more misplaced pass.

    Bound to concede to a long through.

    We really do have some wet blankets on here. We have been by far the better team, and they have come for a point.

    First 10/15 minutes we looked good. Started very brightly albeit without much end product. Since then we've been very average with no ideas. Seen this pattern before.

    No creativity in the middle with JWP playing too deep. Struggling to create chances for the third game in a row.

    People need to get a grip on themselves. We’re playing another side with absolutely no ambition at all who’ll be happy to leave without getting beaten.
    We’ve not been great but it’s tough to find a gap and Stephens and Vestegaard are getting as far forward as our other midfielders at times just to provide options and try to open space.
    I suspect we’ll see a forward thinking change, perhaps losing JWP for Austin/Gallagher

    Can't see us losing this. Cardiff have offered next to nothing going forward.

    Yep, really not worth going on match threads unless we are winning easily

    Cardiff looking dangerous from set pieces.

    Lots of effort, but we're very laboured on the ball. I fear for us if we have to chase the game.

    This. We look awful in the final third. Shane Long, why? Only player who looks like scoring is Redmond. If they score first, can't see that we have enough about us to get back. I'd actually take a point now.

    Cardiff well drilled defensively. Going to take something special.

    By far the better side but we've created no real chances. Yes, by far the better side.

    I think the biggest issue is that Shane Long clearly isn't providing any movement. This sort of game suits Austin more.
    Also, why are we lumping it in the box at times when that suits Cardiff - i'd like to see Holjberg/Redmond have a few more efforts - both can shoot well.

    We're playing quite well as a unit but the lack of quality in the final third is hurting us.

    They are parking the bus completely, zero ambition which is a bit pathetic IMO considering its a 6 pointer. Just need to remain patient and keep pushing for a goal.

    And they'll easily get a point, or more, unless we play a lot better than we have first half.

    Haha.
    To be fair, a few others felt it was necessary under the circumstances. Maybe - would've been very Saints-like to concede just before HT.

    Probably will have to take Bertrand off for Targett and put El Useless on later in the half - and of course Austin on for Long.

    Away to a top 6 side as a relegation threatened team is a bit different to being away to a team you could go above if you win and in a relegation 6 pointer

    We so badly short of a cutting edge up front. So easy to see we needed this most in the last window. Cardiff have come for a win - their strategy is to frustrate for as long as possible then go for it in the last 15 mins when the crowd are getting on our own backs...
    ...C'mon Saints gotta score a goal!

    Need to hit it and pick up rebounds. Too many wanting an extra touch.

    We'll win this.
