Southampton 0-1 Leicester - Match Thread


Recommended Posts

About what I expected. The team has been lost for weeks. No direction at all. Need to try and get that extra win in the league and rebuild in the summer.

That was particularly bad.

 

We must be the worst team in the entire world chasing a game.

The big players didn't show up, simple as. 

Centre backs played well; defensively we were decent. Other than Armstrong, the attacking players were really, really poor.

Damn.

We gave it a go at least.

Hard to stomach losing to a goal where the striker fucked it up that much and got that lucky.

We created the square root of fuck all though. Just a wimpering pile of shite trying to cling on like a league one team against Premier League. FUCK OFF THEN>

Gutless. Never turned up, took absolutely zero risk and were just content to make sure we didn't take a hammering. I'd rather we'd lost 2 or 3 nil and had some efforts on goal than that sterile shit. Fuming at that pathetic display in a semi-final of the FA Cup.

The really annoying thing is that, as bad as we were, the goal that won it was so poor and pretty much a fluke.

Pony.

Bednarek takes him out and that doesn’t go in. That’s not bad luck, that’s pathetic lack of professionalism. Bunch of flicking pansies.

Absolutely shocking performance. No ideas, hardly any impetus or attacking play in an FA Cup semi final. Manager makes one change from a dire performance against WBA and then waits until the 83rd minute to change formation. 

Disgrace. 

The team and manager are very lucky they don't have to face fans in the stadium.

What a complete waste of time that was. Spineless bunch of nincompoops. Time for a clear out. Reminded me of the white flag surrender at Cardiff in 2003.

What is the point of battling your way to Wembley and then giving up without a fight.

Yep, Bednarek could have stopped that but Vestergaard and Bertrand then left Iheanacho. Piss poor from all 3.

That was Leicesters easiest game so far this season. The difference in class was huge and Leicester are not that special. Timid, tepid and tame. My description of Saints today.

Typical semi final, lucky bounce settled it. I imagine the Xg would be o.1 for both sides.

Dialo mom for us, coped well after his booking for a foul that 4 Leicester players did straight after and didn't  get  booked for.

Well that was shite, but from both teams. Leicester didn't create much either and spawned a goal.

Difference between the teams today is that we gave the ball away in some quite ridiculous positions - trouble is we've been doing that since the autumn, but slowly getting worse.

To think some clowns were comparing JWP free kicks to Ronaldo, saying his were better. As I pointed out at the t8me, it’s when you take them and how important they are. You can bet your life CR would have put that last second one on the money. Prowse wet his pants and bottled it. Sums him and the club up.

Dont blame the Manager.

He can only work within a limited transfer fund.

Those responsible are those who spunked away the Van Dyke money

Part of me agrees with this. It wasnt even seeing the gulf in class between the two starting 11s. Did you see their bloody bench compared to us !!

Wow, sorry to say it but a new low reached today. What happened to the high energy, slick passing team we saw during the first part of the season?

Looking at the goal again Bertrand and Vest were done by some SERIOUSLY good movement from Ihanaecho (sp). He STEPPED BACK SLIGHTLY AWAY FROM THE GOAL. There ain't a defender in world football capable of countering that kind of movement.

Most teams work with a limited transfer budget. Doesnt mean you put zero effort in for the last 4 months. Unacceptable performances. I can't see where the players are with ralph anymore. As much as I blame the players we can't sack them so we must sack ralph instead. If nothing changes we are down next season.

Reminded me of the performance against Chelsea in the last FAC semi final we were in. The free kick delivery on 94 minutes summed us up, last roll of the dice and Ward Prowse skies it over everyone.

What a dull uninspiring team we have become, looks like we are back to the bad old days again.

Another gutless performance in a long line of gutless performances. Can take losing if we give it a go but we just cruised through that like it was a friendly.

Zero shots on target sums us up.

Whole club needs a big clear out. Can't wait for this season to be over.

The kit man has the easiest job, he won't even have to turn the machine on after that because there'll be no blood, sweat, tears or dirt on the shorts and shirts.

I am so angry about that performance. That was a fucking semi final Saints, and you've played like you started the game 1 nil up and made no attempt to score a goal. Absolutely useless. Honestly would have rather lost 5-2. Absolute horse shit.

So many people talking like Leicester dominated us but it simply isn't true. Cagey game with few chances settled by a fluke goal. We had a couple of chances where it was bobbling round in the box too and we didn't get the rub of the green. Don't think we were outplayed, it was 50/50 and we were unfortunate.

He can get them up for a semi final, it’s his responsibility. Spineless bunch of cunts, with the Teflon manager.

We restricted them to the square root of feck all as well.

Their only shot on target came from the luckiest ricochet I’ve seen all season.

Sorry don't buy that you motivate whatever players you have available and quit moaning! We were not motivated or fired up to give 100% today we barely gave 50% the manager is at least half to blame for that!

He also got lucky in that his shot was going wide hit Vestergaard and went straight back to him. Doesn’t take away the fact that we deserved to lose, it was a pathetic performance, how the fuck can you play in a semi and not even muster a single shot on target.

Their goal came from a fluke and not much to suggest they were a better team, however Saints were terrible...very, very negative football and to have so few chances on goal in an FA Cup Semi is tantamount to criminal!  I don’t think Ralph has got what it takes to be a successful manager at Saints unfortunately now. Thank fook I didn’t pay to watch that!!,

Our lack of quality up front is a problem. it forces us to bomb players forward which leaves us exposed. When we play tighter we then have nothing going forward. Got to get better players.

We had 0 shots on target.
 

As Rio said the players should wake up tomorrow regretting they didn’t give their all. God, I dread to think how poor their attitude needs to be before the cult accept we’re shocking.
