    Oh well. Two first choice defenders out at possibly our hardest remaining game.

    We still aren't going down, you wet fannies.

    Game lost 1st half. Dreadful in the first 45 mins
    Miles better in the 2nd half and could have easily made it 2-2.

    However, Ralph got the starting line-up wrong. We gave up the middle of the park (again)

    oh well.

    Awful performance. We need a massive mashup of our CBs, nowhere near what we used to have.

  8. Default

    Disappointed.

    Very poor first half, better second but not good enough in front of goal and defending our own goal.

    Awful first half. Ralph got it all wrong but corrected it at half time. We didn't get that second goal we probably deserved.. but in the end a fair result. Tough place to come.

    Ings might as well have not been out there.

    Poor from us, the most Hughes like performance under Hasenhuttl. If you don't play with intensity then you just won't compete at PL level, especially away.

    Key points:

    1. Sims poor, doesn't do the basics well enough. For me not a starting player

    2. JWP is poor at RB/RWB - not quick enough

    3. Stephens is done

    4. Lemina back the only positive - great goal and adds mobility

    5. If Cardiff lose tomorrow then any points vs Bmth should keep us up. Want to get those points as soon as possible as it could get squeaky again otherwise.

  13. Default

    Hasenhuttl did well to give us a chance of getting at least a draw after half time but just didn’t run for us. We had the chances at least.

    Nothing more than a bad day at the office which Ralph will sort out. The match thread, pure comedy gold.

    We are dangerously heading to relegation. I don’t trust this team over Cardiff.

    Matches like this are still very instructive for Ralph as he works through what needs to change to get us into mid-table or better in the Premier League next season.

    Awful first half, superb second half. Wonderful to have Lemina back. We need him. Armstrong a much better bet than Sims based on what we saw today. We'll be fine. We played some sensational football second half. But we do need a top-class striker. And we do need better cover in defense. If we had two centre backs good enough for us to play 4-2-2-2 we'd be able to lock up midfield and maintain strong attack. That's the way I hope we go this summer. A bit of work to do before then. But we'll get it done.

    Problem is some play well some games and other times donít. Everyone championing Sims recently and then plays sh1te today. Armstrong looks just what we need many times then anonymous.
    Obviously need consistency and hard to know who of the current crop gives us that.

    One more point will see us safe. Brighton will go down. Terrible first half, really quite decent second.

    I think if you speak to Trousers (once he gets back from the game), he'll confirm there are no trolls here.

    Is it comedy to see Saints fans frustrated at a poor performance? Not sure it's that funny really. If you're referring to the folks saying we're doomed and going down, they're here only to wind you up. Ignore them.

    You can't not turn up for the first 55 minutes of a game and expect to get anything out of it far to many players where off the pace today hopeful it was a one off and we can get something from the last three games I'd like to finish as high up the table as possible.

    Indeed.

    538 still has us at under 1% chance of relegation.

    now they did have us finishing at 14th before today's matches, now they have us at 15th

    Damage done in the first half, but a much, much better second stanza. Lemina particularly and Armstrong added intensity and run. Redmond's second half was very good. Surely we have seen the last of Stephens - he was awful. Felt sorry for Sims - the intensity Newcastle played with overwhelmed him and having JWP behind him at RB meant the right side was very vulnerable. I know I'm a serial JWP critic - but even if he was played out of position today - what has to happen for him to be dropped or at least subbed? That's four very ordinary games in a row.

    Whose said we are going down?

    All I see is a few cautious until we are mathematically safe?

    I reckon Cardiff will win at least 2 more, and they might even surprise Man U on the final day. Thankfully, Brighton won't surprise anyone.

    We were poor on the first half and struggled against a team pressing and giving us no time. In that scenario Sims didn't perform and JWP isn't a RB.

    The positives are that Ralph made the right changes at HT. Armstrong is a much more solid, experienced complete player than Sims and we needed another body in midfield. And secondly, until their third which was a combination if a weak defensive header (should have put it out) and a lucky defection, we looked like getting a draw. We made chances. Yoshida could have had a hat trick.

    Watford will be tough too, but they have less to play for. Also hope Valery and Vestergaard are back.

    Jesus H Christ we have some faint hearted wimps in here. Grow a pair and man up for Pete's sake.

    Cardiff won't get within 3 points of us.

    Can’t blame JWP today, never a right wing back. Agree on Jack sadly - not sure whether he is a RB, CB - definitely not that at top level - or a DMC. Jack of all trades but master of none, worrying in his mid 20s. Needs to drop a level and find himself. I think that goes for a few of the squad tbh.

    We were due a stinker under RH, Cardiff was the last one, and there haven’t been many.

    Enormous transfer window coming up - pace and power needed right through the spine and Glover/Wilson have some serious offloading duties to do from June to end of August.

    Very poor performance. There better be a reaction on Tuesday, I better not have to wade my way through London rush hour on the tube to sit through two hours of crap.

    The Bournemouth match is key for us to get necessary points, hopefully no shocks tomorrow Cardiff v Liverpool as then Cardiff have 2 winnable matches.
    I expect the Watford game to go much like today's and after Bournemouth we have a difficult West Ham away. We don't want to go into a nervy Huddersfield game having to get a point or three, while Cardiff go for it at home against United.
    I'm an 'until it's mathematically impossible type' person, unfortunately.

    I never like losing. Even to much better teams but Newcastle are not a good side. We were so ordinary we made them look awesome. We are not going down. Our second half showed we do have the capability and on another day the Magpies would be the ones who didn't get the luck. Move on.

    Sorry they are, makes it better then. It is very highly likely that we will stay up but could just do without any top 6 losing to Cardiff or Brighton.

    You are so depressingly negative about everything Saints that Most people must wonder why you bother to come on here at all.

    We lost a game, we can't win them all. Get over it. One or two players let us down badly today when Ralph had put his trust in them, it happens. We're already safe anyway so why worry ... be Happy!

    From about 500 feet above the pitch in the away section the first half was pretty grim. Two poor goals to concede, and we just didn’t look much up for it. Was the ball out of play on half way before they scored their second - haven’t seen the replays but it should never have got to Perez anyway.
    Ball was defo out before Gunn made his wonder save and after we scored I thought we’d get back to 2-2. Much better performance second half and good to see Mario back.
    JWP did his best but isn’t a wing back, we need to sign another CB in the summer, and Danny Ings needs a goal.
    Long journey home. Roll on Watford.

    I honestly think we're going down.
