    good half lads

  2. Default

    The centre halves were excellent there. Constant pressure but not that many chances.

    Over the 2 games: Saints lose first half, draw the second, win the third.

    Momentum swinging in our direction!

    A very good backs to the wall performance so far. It's highly unlikely it will stay 0-1 but a bit of pride has been restored.

    Well now, if someone had told me an hour ago that we would keep them out and be in the lead at HT, I would have told them to seek medical help.

    It's a funny old game.

    Redmond has showed more deliberation when holding the ball, kept them guessing more

    **** me, what a half. 45 minutes to go lads. The defence hasn't put a foot wrong. Vestergaard winning everything in the air. Must only turn up against the Manchester clubs.

    Eating my hat.
    Some very good intensity.
    Jwp lovely gambling on 2nd ball.

    Still don’t like how much time we are giving them on their left to get balls in.
    Still expect city to win but at least we are making them work for it and giving them issues on the break.

    Great defending first half. Romeu been a beast

    Great stuff. Surely game is crying out for Djenepo at some point? Need a bit more of an outlet. That said- Redmond and Ings both working hard.

    Wouldn't rush him on because Redmond is doing good work relieving the pressure. Maybe if we go behind or late on if one of them's tiring.

    Armstrong is under-rated here. His runs are often really imaginative. Think he brings a good dimension. Wish Redmond was better w his decision making. He gets into incredible positions, but rarely finds the incisive final pass. JWP. He's showed his value today. not just the goal, but his constant industry. He reads the game well and is often the cause of our winning back possession. Valery has been fantastic today. And you could imagine that Stephens and Vest are actually quite good!

    Ah... it's the hope that kills you.

    Credit to the lads, they are absolutely fighting for one another and the club out there. It needs every single one of them to put in a shift to get anything here, and even if the talent isn't there, the effort is. I think we are all expecting City to eventually break through and win but they are having to fight. What was really noticeable was how aware they are of the City players movement. Unless you are a tank that fills half the pitch like Romeu, you aren't gonna get too many chances to get close enough to tackle. But they know which City players to get close to, and which ones to give a little bit more space which stifles their attacks. It's like a different team defensively.

    what a difference getting a goal and something to hang on to make not only to the performance but to how we perceive the side. We have hardly got out of our own half, but when you are in front you can live with it. Want to see Redmond try to beat two or three on the break. He has it in him to score a wonder goal and seal an amazing win. COYR

    Armstrong a far superior midfielder to JWP and Hojberg.. should start ahead of them.

    Odd I thought hojbergís been good out of position. Thought Valery has been standing off more.

    Can't understand for a moment why we wouldn't wear our first kit away at City.

    Is there some sort of superstition going on due to our woeful home form?

    Still feels like a standard issue noble defeat but let's see. Would be fantastic to get out with a point.

    Great determination so far. Like to see us surprise City by getting a early second half goal.
    If we win this and Aston Villa beat Liverpool Brendan Rodgers will be the winner...again.

    Most likely but at least it's a better performance than our last league game.

    Just can't see us holding on to this we need an out when we do get hold of the ball to take the pressure of the defence.
