    Easy, never really in doubt. So there are three teams that are actually worse than us...

    One point off Bournemouth and the south coast is theirs, they have one of the best managers in the league and all that...

    Great game.

    Only 1pt behind Bournemouth, 2 behind BHA.

    Merry Christmas!

    we don't make it easy do we? even at three nil up! excellent result but still the nerves/mistakes remain

    That has to be the first comfortable victory we've had in quite some time.

    Incredible, out the bottom 3 and other results have gone our way. Can't get my head around it. Should be buzzing but almost in a state of shock.

    Can't argue with beating all three sides in the relegation zone in recent weeks...takes some bottle.

    Sounded like our best performance of the season today.

    Great team selection from Ralph.

    Get in... Nice Xmas present to the fans from the Saints ... good performance, good goals, defensively pretty sound... out of the bottom 3...
    Hope the Saints saved enough to give me a late present ... as I'm travelling back home next week and will be at the Palace game ...

    Merry Xmas everyone :-)

    Well played lads didn't think they had it in them. First time we've scored 3 all season, Stephens was outstanding. Clearly a player in there after all. We'd clearly be ****ed without Ings but then you could say that about most teams with their main scorer taken away. I don't like this team whatsoever but they might just have enough to survive again.

    Good stuff lads. Showing some bottle and quality there. Happy Crimbo my fellow Saints!

    My 100% tactic of avoiding all scores until FT worked a treat again. Bloody great result and a good set from others. Excellent. Happy bunny.

    To the lot of you who keep critizising on and on the team, think we are already down and have given up, go and support another football club.
    You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    You ll no doubt be back calling for Ralph s head if we lose to Chelsea on boxing day.

    True. So slow to get set to play a pass and sort his body and feet out.

    If we had a decent playmaker and a centre back it would make a huge difference.

    Great stuff, massive 3 points for us.

    Out of the bottom 3 and back on the tails of Bournemouth, Brighton and Everton after their results today.

    Thank fook for Danny Ings, we must keep that man fit!

    Merry Christmas one and all :

    Excellent effort from the entire team. Looked good in that 4-4-2 formation. We seem to have a more settled team now.

    Played well to a man, but that Long miss from a yard out ! !!!

    Thought both full backs were great, especially in the first half. Brilliant run from Bertrand to win the corner for the 2nd goal.

    Well done to Jack Stephens. He may not be Toby, or Fonte, but he is one of the best 2 we have at the moment.

    We should have won the last 3 away games and be mid table, but is looking a bit more hopeful .

    Have we yet found 3 worse teams than Saints?

    Villa's next 2 games are Norwich and Watford.

    Absolutely massive run of results, that's in effect a 12 point swing against our direct relegation rivals.

    We're still in a relegation battle, but we've found at least three teams that could well end up worse than us.

    Should have been 6-1 but will take the 3-1.

    When Hoj missed that open goal I thought “here we go again”. Was pretty comfortable in the end.

    Ings MOM followed by Stephens.
    Honourable mentions to Bertrand, Armstrong and JWP.

    great win and never really in doubt.
    they were atrocious, defending as bad as we have.

    Ings great, long was long, Stephens was good. We put some decent crosses in and exploited them on the break

    again, villa were terrible and in dire form!

    So you are pleased with the rest of the season so far?

    Great result -well done Danny Ings, Stephens and both full backs.

    All right, all right, all right. Pretty cool.

    Thought we played quite nicely (albeit, Villa were appalling), and should have had an even more comprehensive victory but for some sloppy play at both ends.

    I wanted to give the much maligned Stephens a big wrap for his uncharacteristically competent defensive performance - but then he blotted his copybook in the last few minutes with two characteristic lapses in concentration that caused a bit of panic. Still, you've got to take what you can get with our defence.

    18 points at almost halfway - will double that keep us up? At least we're still hanging in there, fighting.

    Onwards. Merry Christmas everyone.

    Great result, didn’t see that coming after the West Ham performance.

    Looks like Ralph has found his formation, hopefully we can strengthen in Jan and we will be OK.

    Can't moan at a win but I can't get my head around the choice and timing of the subs,always seem to stifle the play. Had the chance to give Adams some time to maybe get a goal and sort his confidence,but no.

    This time last year we were three points worse off, but also one position higher.

    Not sure what mistakes you are referring to. Their goal was a great shot which McCarthy couldn't do anything about. We were a team in the bottom 3 playing away from home. We created far more chances than Villa and deserved the win. I actually thought it was easy, even when they scored.
