Saints 1-1 Brighton - Match Thread


Recommended Posts

So so predictable.

I've been very supportive of Ralph but after that I'm edging towards the Ralph out camp. Sick to the back teeth of these second half abominations and throwing away leads, which renders any good work in the first half meaningless.

That said, JWP shoulders the majority of the blame for that one. Utterly brainless.

So pissed off.

I hate this team. Embarrassing once more.

If it'd been us down to 10 we'd have just passed it around and Ralph would then stand and lament our terrible luck.

2 mins left JWP, just fucking welly it upfield and regroup, even kids know not to pass across their own half when the oppo are running at them.

At least we are top of the table for something aka The Kings of points lost from a winning position! If we are only just above the relegation zone at the end of the season again ie  17th or 16th I feel its time to give someone else a go as Ralph seems to have taken us as far as he can

Come on then, explain why it’s not Ralph’s fault yet again against 10 men ?

It was against 11 men....one of them had a whistle. Let's hope that Gao sells and the new buyer puts in some money and gets rid of Ralph. Can't stand watching the same shitshow every second half.

Broja should have finished the 2-3 golden chances he had to give us a buffer, two massive errors from JWP at the end.

Thought you'd blame Broja. Spoiled your little agenda that he's not as good as Armstrong by scoring a cracking goal so you have to blame him for us pissing away another two points. Oh and Ralph needs to add game management to his little poxy playbook because he clearly doesn't have a scooby how to implement it when his team is leading.

UN-.F........ING BELIEVABLE! I have really lost my sense of humour...how the. F can Ralph be smiling after that shambolic defence of a lead with 11 v 10. HOW? HOW?  

Attack is the best form of defence - when will we learn. WHEN. 

Just not good enough. Now we lose to Arsenal with no Salisu or Romeu.

At one point the second half possession was 72% Brighton, with no changes made. That suggests the plan was to back off and hold, and hit on the break. I don’t know what the final number was.  If that was the plan, it meets the unofficial definition of insanity. Ralph has a lot of qualities but his obstinacy and arrogance will be his undoing.

He scored one good goal. Granted. But surely you can see he could and should have put away the one Livra set up for him and the one Che put him through for at the beginning?

We're still a better team than last season IMO. Eventually it will click. Just got to learn to push for a second once we do take the lead.

 

Next week of course will be about defending against a very good Arsenal team.

Your little darling Armstrong would have scored of course. What with 1 goal in 13 games now.

Southampton have dropped 71 points from winning points in the Premier League since Ralph Hasenhüttl’s first game in charge in December 2018 – 15 more than any other side.

Still, if you compare our transfer budget to most of the other teams.

I didn't mention Armstrong. But the fact is, if Armstrong had missed those chances he would have been blamed.

Overall, it’s the same old bore-bag of a story really. Start well, pressure them, should score more than 1 goal, don’t score more than 1 goal. Come out second half, slowly drift back, team come into it, equalise. And rinse repeat every.single.week.for.ever. That was against a depleted, unconfident 9-man Brighton by the way. Absolutley pathetic from everyone on the field not being able to close that one out.

We make such hard work of scoring goals, it’s beyond painful to watch. But we all saw it, everyone. Sell Ings and gamble on his replacement (which we did) and this team will need an incredible amount of luck to stay up as there are no goals anywhere else.

I genuinely think a half decent winger/number 10 may mask our lack of goals, but we don’t even have that. Our attack, bar a young unproven loanne, is just marooned in averageness and shit.

What do we do in January? Well, we buy an actual player who is a decent attacker for a start. But we won’t as we have no money. Will we limp through this season? I don’t know, it’s hard to say. We make such a meal out of scoring goals and that’s just not sustainable. There’s a lot of positives in certain areas of this team, and how we play, but there is a significant lack of quality in certain areas which is looking like it’s going to kill us.
