    Default Saints 1-1 Huddersfield - Reaction

    One lapse in concentration has cost us 15th place and 41 points...which would have been a remarkable total considering where we were after losing to Cardiff in Dec..

    Our season in 90 minutes. Some effort. Good goal. Awful defence. Mostly drab.

    My main gripe of Ings is that he seems too weak. He falls over so easily and just get's brushed aside by defenders. He doesn't have the pace he used to have so needs to be more clever with the ball.

    Honestly, those slagging him are deluded.
    How many of those goals were from open play?

    Dreadful game to round off an awful season.

    Saints way to end the season.

    Hopefully we can be better next season, not counting on it

    Don't ever comment on goalkeeping again if you think Macca is better than Gunn.

    I think that's fair, and most fans probably share your view/concern. Unfortunately it seems there are also quite a few ready to dismiss him as championship standard/a pointless signing/worse than Long/worse than Austin etc just because he had a shot blocked or gave a free kick away.

    to be fair I don't think Gunn has made that many match winning saves, wheras last season McCarthy made countless ones that helped us stay up. I haven't seen enough of Gunn to be sure he is any better

    Extremely disappointing end to the season.

    Can't understand why we gave the useless Austin yet more minutes. Hoped never to see him again in a Saints shirt.

    Don't suppose it matters, but at 1-0 up against a team which has taken 5 points from a possible 72 - why replace an attacking player with a LB and deploy 3 CBs? Awful way to end the season, but well done to Ralph for keeping us up. An interesting Summer awaits.

    Much more to it than 'match winning saves'. Our ball retention and play rate figures have increased since Gunn was introduced and less goals conceded (granted a reduce number of games played). Macca is fantastic at blocking and defending the goal, very problematic with shots from in and around 18 yards.

    Usual on here. Wait until somebody makes a mistake and then tear them down. Gunns been very good for us since taking over as no1

    Put it another way - it's hard to argue Gunn is better than McCarthy?

    The fact is that the result is Gunn 1 Huddersfield 1, it was a shocking error by a professional footballer and probably cost us around 2 mil in FA money.

    Predictable result. We struggle against crap teams that sit deep but make up for it against the better teams.

    Well that was a suitably underwhelming performance to end the season. Very disappointing last couple of games. Ralph the highlight of the season. We have to build a defence and get some fast strikers who can score in the summer.

    Just an aside - why no Lemina today? Game was screaming for a creative midfielder.

    yep its madness to have somebody who makes saves, much better having somebody who can throw or kick the ball

    So none of the outfield players who failed to control the game, or create and finish clear attempts on goal, are culpable ?

    It's a very odd place this.

    We're a squad of has-beens, never-will-bes, youngsters and runts. It's a fukkin miracle we are where we are considering... and just because we are there, doesn't mean we're certain improve next year.



    He's an exceptional coach with a sh1tty squad to sort out... its really does require some major surgery if we have top 10 aspirations. We'll semi-back him this year, then push him out the next.

    What a diabolical performance - didn’t even stay for the lap of appreciation in the end as I was so annoyed at the performance. Massive rebuild on in the summer (if we even get any funds for one).

    I think if you check the replay you will see that it was a perfectly good back pass that he took too long to clear. and didn't did he?
    I could be wrong, but that is how I saw it.

    Disappointing finish to the season. 2 points from our last 4 games.

    The work starts tomorrow.

    They turned up for 60 minutes! That's a positive then.

    I meant in the overall failure to beat the worst team in the division, at home. It was the performance over 90 minutes that cost us, not simply one error.

    I thought Huddersfield hadn't bothered at the start and we were just having a kick about with the stewards. Might as well TBF.

    Garbage overall, two seasons summed up in 90 minutes. Possession, a lack of real chances, wasting the one we have, throwing away a lead at home to bottom half opposition, individual howlers leading to goals, bored, overpriced....

    The main positive I can take from today is that I will hopefully never see some of these players again. Before next season, I've got 2 F1 weekends, British Touring Cars and a sh*t load of cricket to take my mind of Saints. Hallelujah!

    At least the fat bloke running on the pitch livened up the second half. Don't worry about banning him, slap those orders on the *****s holding up the "can I have your shirt" signs instead. FFS.

    So last game I as usual watch the walk around and normally worry about who is off.
    This year probably only Ralph Hojberg ,Romeu,Redmond and Bertie rest not bothered really.
    No real affection like the Lambert days

    Honestly, one of the worst end of season games I've ever had to endure. Endure is the key word here.

    Drab, slow, pedestrian, low on any sort of quality. We were against one of the worst sides the PL has ever seen, no qualms about it, yet we both looked destined to be at the same level.

    A really, really flat and depressing end of the season. We have a weird mixture of players, a couple who are fairly consistent and reliable, a fair few who have purple patches throughout a season and then go missing for the rest, and even more who are just basically crap.

    Renewing is still up in the air for me, I have no idea really. I was going to use today as a way to help convince me and give me something to look forward to, but I find myself coming away from that thinking what on earth is the point? That wasn't entertainment, not sure I’d want to spend any of my hard earned on that.

    As much as Ralph says we need additions, and I trust we will add, I just don't trust the team who will be making the calls. They shouldn't be anywhere near this club after what they've done with our fortune of the last 2/3 windows, absolutely nowhere near. But we just have to suck that up unfortunately.

    As well as the dross they have recruited, think of some of the near misses. Mbenza at Huddersfield, Jahanbakhsh at Brighton - both high targets for us at the start of last season. I hope, and this is the only slight saving grace in my mind, is that Ralph will have some serious input in who we recruit, because without question he can probably do a better job.

    All in all another absolutely dire season, saved by a really good manager who managed to galvanise this complete rabble. Now we just need to see what surgery can be performed on this side over the summer, sadly I feel we will fail to shift as many as we need to, which will undoubtedly handcuff us in who we can bring in

    Terrible game to add to the list of many other terrible games this season.

    I left bang on the final whistle, Ralph needs to learn for all his pre match talk of bond between players and fans if you serve up shlte like that you don't deserve a round of applause let alone a lap of appreciation. Should've made players go in the stands and let them give the fans a standing ovation for sitting through so much crap this season.
    let's hope for better next year.

    Do we ever put in a good performance on the last game of the season when we are safe?
