    Very healthy position. Nothing fears me on that Wolves bench either so no reason we can't kick on and win this comfortably. Traore looks like he has bought into his own hype and wants to do it all himself- which suits us as whilst he's a nuisance he's not a world beater. Also the Wolves players seem to have no idea what he's about to do and look disjointed.

    Good performers all over the pitch for us after a little sluggish start. Cedric putting over his ever cross and looking genuinely a good footballer. Armstrong tenacious and driving forward. Defenders pretty comfortable apart from a couple of little moments which you would expect. Definitely looking up for us!

    Oh and I assume the people who said the players aren't good enough and we're definitely down now accept they're reactionary fools and leagues aren't decided in November right?

    Hello?

    Such a joy to watch Saints. Their level of aggression and determination, and the skill with which they apply it, is thrilling to see, and must be pretty distressing for opponents. Then, unlike earlier in the season, when we win the ball, we're moving it forward really quickly. Hoj, JWP, Armstrong showing fantastic quick-touch passing. Cedric has been lethal. Seeing Shane Long score is big boost too. A slight gain in his confidence and poise in front of goal, and there could be a lot more to come. We absolutely look like a team who deserves to be in Europe. I hope we avoid mistakes/complacency/misfortune and continue with this second half. another goal or two and a clean sheet would have us all dreaming dreaming...

    How good does it feel to watch games and feel like we felt when Poch and Koeman were here...?!

    agree. Its like those who said 17th is the very best we could hope for and there was nothing else Ralph could do with this squad....(which still needs much work)

    Funny game - don't think we've played well at all, but two-up is not to be sneezed at.

    Jiminez has missed a couple, though.

    Fingers crossed we don't give him an early sniff in the second half and the match peters out.

    I worry about Prowse getting a second yellow. Whether it's the miles he's covered lately or what, he's been arriving late to every 50:50 today.

    Don't think Long has completed a single pass, but more than happy for his all round game to be useless if he pops up with his goal for the year.

    Seriously though, surely Wolves will have more second half. Seen then lots and they just don't get beaten easily. But maybe/hopefully they're just running on empty now.

    Next goal vital, come on Ings finish them off.
    Normally I would think this but their bench looks terrible which will majorly hinder any come back or even fight. It must be one of the worst benches I've seen from a top half club in a while. So it really needs to be one of the players on the pitch is gonna step up and terrorise us, but they look pretty gassed out.

    look, I never said our players were not good enough or we are going down....But seriously, you are trying to big yourself up this way? You never said anything in the heat of a defeat? Honestly, that was a pathetic post.

    It's been three years (and counting) since we got 40 points. Define reactionary.

    I missed most of that first half due to being shoved pillar to post at work, but I have a mate keeping me up to date with the scoreline. 2-0 up and Ings not yet on the scoresheet! Lovely stuff - a third should put this to bed surely! As long as we don't do anything Saintsy, this will be a fantastic 3 points if we can get it, and should banish all worries of relegation battles from our heads.

    Norwich beating Bournemouth would make it an even better day. Still, a long 45 minutes to come...

    don't worry, Adrian was expecting multiple signings this window to aid our survival. Now, however.......

    Tbf this drastic change in form is fairly unprecedented. A record defeat and then an absolutely stunning vein of form.

    Wolves are no mugs, they are marking Ings tightly and really harassing Prowse. They've done their homework.

    Even more credit for the scoreline

    This is a big second-half coming up and we must not be complacent. They dont say two-nil is the most dangerous scoreline for nothing.

    Looking forward to the second half. Determination and aggression is paying dividends at last. Let's get at least two more lads.

    Well this is a novelty. Seeing Saints 2-0 up going into the second half and not feeling it necessary to lump a huge sum on an insurance bet.

    I've been critical of Redmond this season, as I don't think he has really contributed what we know he is capable of. But that bit of skill to get free and cross for Long was exquisite. More of the same please Nathan.

    Me nether. Wolves 33/1 and I still don't wanna waste the fiver just yet.

    On another note, did anyone else notice how the commentator just made the very finely tuned point that Saints fans would be more comfortable if we were 6-0 up than we would do if we were 2-1 up?

    Oh here we ****ing go...

    Let's see if the recent confidence can stay with the lads. They have covered a lot of ground recently though.

    It was Stephens who backed out of that. Stuck a foot out to try and clear but tried too hard not to give away a foul and got nothing on it.

    It was Bednarek who slid in on Traore.

    The Southampton Way.

    Of course if we win this with the remaining scoreline we’d be over the moon but by no means do they make it easy- a mini scare for the next 35 minutes- just what the doctor ordered

    I know every supporter says this but it really wouldn't be Saints if we did it the easy way.

    I can see wolves scoring again for sure which means we need to score first!

    Got to be a penalty. I'd be fuming if that was the other way round and not given.
