Sounds like it might have been worth £15 to watch it ...... not that I ever even considered it at that price.

Great point. Would have taken that at the start, could only dream of it at 0-2.

Fab display in the 2nd half. Deserved that point. Was frustrated at the naive way we let them back in at 2-2. Nice to see us being professional after getting it back to 3-3.

Walcott carries a threat.

Vestergaard seems a different player.

Thought Romeu was suberb.

For every Chelsea goal, Southampton have had a huge part to play in it.

I was a bit miffed by that too. Weird how it doesn’t seem to apply to our errors in their goals.

Really struggled to see the end of that, vision was almost entirely distorted by the blue jizz from the commentators. Great fight back, second half all over them. Thought JWP and Romeu were magnificent in the centre. It takes a hell of a performance to take control of the centre of the pitch against Chelsea. Lost my shit at Tella refusing to cross it in at the end. Vestegaard transformed this season. Real brave performance by the lads against a side with just so much more resources.

Where the fuck did that come from? Honestly, 30 mins gone we should have been 3/4-0 out of sight.

We obviously gave ourselves a shake in the 2nd half, I don't know why it always needs to be like that? (we're often chasing games due to an awful first half).

Second half excellent though, lots of pressing, lots of pressure. They obviously tired and once again our higher fitness levels shone through at the end.

Theo grew into the game and started to find space as Chelsea tired.

Defensively horrific at times, but we were actually pretty decent with the ball for large periods.

I wasn't on board with the Walcott signing - and his pace has definitely fallen off - but credit to him: he got better and better as the game wore on.

A well deserved point - could've been more if Bednarek in particular had put in a semi competent shift at the back.

Lampard won't last Christmas. Can't organise a defence to save his life. He's a shit Kevin Keegan. 

Good game. Well worth the zero pounds I paid for it.

He was. When he gets a few games behind him he looks so composed.

Oh man....

What a finish! :D

Can’t help but feel that game would have been amazing to be in the ground for though...

Was thinking exactly the same - would’ve been a cracking away day! Well played lads - good to see Theo back in the shirt!

Great 2nd half , as said elsewhere, although KWP gave the ball away too much and Vestegaard got carried away after the Adams goal  and went on a Bekenbauer run into their half when Bertie was already there, leading to the big game they exploited for their 3rd. 

Good team performance, both CMs were excellent and the new guy looked good when he came on after the Romeu yellow. Tella showed some promise,  particularly when winning the ball back. 

Very good debut by Theo. I was happy at 3.2 with the Skate Mont being substituted, so 3 3 is jsut great, and well deserved.

Great point. 

Match thread posts while we were losing are as amusing as ever.

We were absolutely terrible when we were losing though, they were pummelling us. Credit where it's due, we turned it around 2nd half, but that first half performance should be confined to the bin!

Is it fair to say that vestergaard has been half decent so far this season? 

Strangely Bedernek has taken the 'dodgy' centre half label so far this season. Jannik seems a bit stronger to me, but he still gets a bit over excited sometimes with the ball at his feet and it does scare me.

Up against a really quick and mobile attack he'd prob still struggle though. (I didn't really rate Chelsea's attack, even though the commentators were jizzing over it all game).

Initially I was of the second opinion, but then I realised it was deliberate and probably under instruction - JWP also had the opportunity to cross. As it was we still managed another chance and when it came to the Chelsea goal kick it was after the extra time period was up.

There’s a lot of that going on, it seems like teams play with a lot more freedom without the psychological pressure of a stadium full of people. I know the butterfly effect and all that but it was such a shame Villa and Man Utd fans couldn’t see their games 2 weeks ago.

I think against a team of £60m superstars there will always be a period of that.

No doubt he's improved though. I'd rather have him there at the moment than bednarek and Stephens. You're right though, the commentators were going mental over their players before they had even done anything. They played some good stuff in the first half but the goals themselves were more down to our poor play.

Yeah you are right! At that stage my emotions were more rampant then they have been for a good long while whilst watching Saints and wanted blood!

Good game. Played well. We look decent again.

Happy with my £15 investment to watch that; better than a dodgy stream.

 

Can’t believe that they rip you off like that. We get all the games on DAZN for. CDN $150 for the year. About 100 pounds.
