    Stoke City are getting a bit full of themselves...they are not that great, just hoofers like Wet Spam. So it's just important not to let Stoke bully...Saints must give as good as they get in every challenge. Unlike the team performed (not) against Sunderland. If SFC can't do this, and compete with ordinary teams like Stoke, Sunderland, Wigan, etc. then we shouldn't be in the Premiership. Today is a good day to prove how good they are, so come on you Saints!

    Portugal checking in - briefly! I fly at 7pm but I think we're leaving here shortly to go shopping on the way to Porto airport. If so, I won't reach the airport before kick off and don't yet know if I can watch the match on Internet at the aiport.

    Of course, being Portugal, plans could change at any time :(

    Strange if right! No one thinks Jay and Rickie work well together.

    I just hope it's Jay on the left and Guly behind Rickie. Either way, I'd have preferred Fox in front of Shaw today.

    As for the defence, is that Jos or Yosh at RB. If no Clyne, why no Richardson? Are both injured?

    Of course, it'll work a treat and doubters like me will be proved wrong. Here's hoping .....

    2nd is a tighter contest so far.. bit scrappy as tensions kick in. Expect changes soon. After a clash of 2 stoke defenders noggins with spilt claret expect 5 or 6 mins added on.

    Don't know for sure, but from the commentatory, it could have been JRod or Punch who had run out of steam to come off, probably it was the wrong choice, but nothing we can do about it now. Armchair management is easy, doing it in a cauldron like the Brittania is something else.

    I would have taken off lambert in the last fifteen minutes and put on mayuka or de ridder to get attacking pace. Bringing on defenders left us with 20 mins of trying to block shots coming at us instead of attacking more and putting a ten man team on the back foot. We should have gone more offensive and kept stoke in their half. How many times have we thrown away winning positions in games by using dodgy substitutes. Before the game I expected one point at most but that still does not make up for wasting a lead like this. Had we brought on attacking players we would have dominated for the last fifteen minutes and taken all the points. Shame but have to move on to arsenal and try to get the win.

    Gutted we didn't get all three points after being 3-1 up but happy we can now all be positive in the fact that we can score against anyone and especially away from home.
    We will be on the end of similar results that will be in our favour in games to come and we'll also surprise a few sides in the second half of the season.
    We're slowly getting therein my honest opinion and there isn't an easy game in the PL which other sides will find out when they play us in the new year.
    There are 4 or 5 sides in this league that seem to be struggling and not scoring as much as us.
    i reckon we'll do ok in the run in as long as we can pick up home wins to go with the away draws along the way.
    It's easy to dwell on negatives but let's not ignore the positives and forget where we were a couple of seasons ago.

    For anyone that was at the game did we look worse in defence for the return of Hooiveld ?? It seems to much of a coincidence to me that one of our worst defensive performances came with him back in the team. Before today we'd conceded 6 in 8 games now it's 9 in 9 Adkins in my opinion MUST WAKE UP and realise we need more quality in the back 5 positions
    Apparently, we've made a a €10m bid for Italian defender David Astori. We do need better quality and to off-load some of the dross we're carrying. Chucking away a two goal lead is unacceptable.

    Must say a bit disappointed with that!
    Didn't really create much in the second half although Guly should have sealed it when knocking in a save from Lambert - perhaps Lambert should have scored?
    Seems strange to be unbeaten over Christmas and yet drop into the bottom three...that additional 2-points would have been very welcome!!
    Critical game coming up thick and fast over January - let's hope we can secure a few more wins!
    Out of interest, what was your prediction ahead of the game? Nailed on win for the Saints? Not sure many would have gone for that.

    I predicted a 3 0 loss! I was that pessimistic, I couldn't see how we had a hope, and when the team selection was announced I felt even worse, seems I underestimated NAs acumen of pulling a rabbit out of a hat. My intestines were doing somersaults at half time, luckily, when normal service, was resumed they settled down.

    Personally I wouldn't have played him, plenty of players I would have picked before him, jwp for 1.
    Do not agree with booing him or any players that wear the saints badge though.
    Would have taken the draw but it does feel like a defeat, maybe inexperience of this league to see the game out or did adkins not make sufficient changes? We tried something similar against man u.

    Sorry guys, we have no hope of signing Lescott, or Frank Lampard or anyone from a big club on big wages. I'd include Dawson in that. Great players, but others will come in and pay better fees and wages.

    Our best bet is to look to Europe and potentially use our links in Scandinavia to bring in no nonsense, low ego, low wage quality defenders, plus an experienced premier league goal keeper that's currently on the bench, possibly Sorensen or Given.

    You are right, he should have scored. J Rod should also have squared the ball to RL when we were 2 on 2 but played a simple pass behind RL who would have had a tap in for 2-4.
    Frustrating as it is and as painful it seems when other sides pick up results it is still encouraging that we are making these chances. The longer the players play together and get results the more chance there is that they will soon be taking these chances and getting us the results we need.
    We are starting to show we are not a bottom 3 or 4 side and I feel will manage to climb away from the drop zone soon.
    Other sides above us are becoming very nervous and slowly getting dragged back into the relegation battle

    Slugger ffs it is not a dig it is an observation about a particular player who just should deliver more..look all our players tried today, however to win every team needs a player that can be relied upon to 'save' them..

    ..Van Persie last season got Arsenal in the Champions league with chance after chance taken in difficult situations...

    Guly a'int no VP but he is supposed to be a cut above the average 'tryer'

    ... look we are crying out for another hero if Guly took his chances and boy they are not difficult we would be at least 9 points better off and he would be our hero....

    Maybe Slugger it is the weight of expectations but in this league you take your chances if you have anything about you....

    According to Uncle Dave, Guly played well. As well as his cross another noptable point was when he put out another excellent defensive ball up to Lambert from which we almost scored This was when our backs were against the wall.

    If he had scored the winner his rating may have edged up from OK to played well almost, Well if it was not Guly!!!! Total garbage booooooooo!!

    Leaving Guly aside (From what I can tell from the radio he played well). It looks like we could not keep possesion and played too deep when we let in the second goal. Have not defended a lead so poorly for a while.

    Sharp was our top scorer in pre-season. Presumably, he was part of the PremPlan when we bought him in January 2012 - either that or the strategy in buying him was incompetent . He lacks pace but makes up for it by being a Jimmy Greaves type of goal-scorer. I'd like to have seen him given a chance in the Prem..

    NA & NC must now be fully aware of the weaknesses, certainly the posters on here are, and must get rid of the dross and buy in quality players in the transfer window.

    Sorry guys, we have no hope of signing Lescott, or Frank Lampard or anyone from a big club on big wages. I'd include Dawson in that. Great players, but others will come in and pay better fees and wages.

    Our best bet is to look to Europe and potentially use our links in Scandinavia to bring in no nonsense, low ego, low wage quality defenders, plus an experienced premier league goal keeper that's currently on the bench, possibly Sorensen or Given.

    I've heard he's on £80k per week so though he souns affordable his wages aren't really. Love to be proved wrong mind you.

    Whilst like most fans I would have taken a draw with Stoke at the start, what I find concerning is the number of points Saints have dropped from winning positions - am sure someone knows. I remain a fan of Nigel Adkins but I am concerned about his tactical ability to close out a game. The dividing line between success and failure is very narrow and if this had been the last game of the season all those lost points would have proved fatal - and they still might.

    You are right, he should have scored. J Rod should also have squared the ball to RL when we were 2 on 2 but played a simple pass behind RL who would have had a tap in for 2-4.
    Frustrating as it is and as painful it seems when other sides pick up results it is still encouraging that we are making these chances. The longer the players play together and get results the more chance there is that they will soon be taking these chances and getting us the results we need.
    We are starting to show we are not a bottom 3 or 4 side and I feel will manage to climb away from the drop zone soon.
    Other sides above us are becoming very nervous and slowly getting dragged back into the relegation battle
    COYR FOADP FOB
    Villa, qpr and reading are definitely worse than us, you could add fulham too. Newcastle are struggling but they have players missing.
    I really want to see players out in this transfer window and the right 3 at least in, these windows IMO are crucial.

    Agree that 3 decent players could make all the difference.

    Yes John it is a fine line and a bit of quality is needed we make more chances than at least 12 others in this league however I guarantee our missed chances are the highest or very close.....hence my annoyance when 'class' players keep missing..

    According to Uncle Dave, Guly played well. As well as his cross another noptable point was when he put out another excellent defensive ball up to Lambert from which we almost scored This was when our backs were against the wall.

    If he had scored the winner his rating may have edged up from OK to played well almost, Well if it was not Guly!!!! Total garbage booooooooo!!

    Leaving Guly aside (From what I can tell from the radio he played well). It looks like we could not keep possesion and played too deep when we let in the second goal. Have not defended a lead so poorly for a while.

    Not a Guly fan sometimes he lacks commitment, (someone has already mentioned the Joel Ward goal for the skates!) but I have to say he was committed today, I won't criticise any saints player who wears the shirt with pride, if that's the level of performance he is going to give week in week out I will be happy to see him play. Hurts losing the 3 points, and seeing us back in the bottom three. I hope we strengthen during January, but I am with those who feel that maybe a poacher with a bit of pace may be top of the list.

    Do tend to agree about Adkins decision making or lack of it, keeper in transfer window has got to be priority. Using 3 and not knowing out of the 2 which is the better (or worse) is a problem. A good keeper breeds confidence in the defence.

    Watched on stream....2 goal lead against 10 men and Stoke were rubbish we just kept giving the ball away AGAIN......

    ...had we gone for it with their defence missing we would, should and could have 3 incredibly important points in the bag....

    ...Wigan went above us and in the end whose fault.

    I am seething because at the end of the season if we are relegated i will not blame the howlers but the misses...

    ...which brings me rather neatly to Guly, every club has a player that the fans just will not warm to, sometimes incredibly unfairly, sometimes their efforts or lack of, or PROMISE leave the supporters very annoyed...

    ...I can NOW put my finger on it with Guly, even though he tried somehow he is a player we EXPECT to deliver and in our teams time of need he just fails...

    ...Pmuff away last season a pathetic no balls head at the ball allowed our bitter rivals to draw, this season on two occassions he could have scored what for a quality player (not average) easy chances, today the ball came back quick to him but he was unmarked and open goal......1-4 game over.

    ...in short he is one of those players you expect to deliver and in critical situations does not time and time again.

    Note he tried today no question but he always falls slightly short...we can forgive lesser players but he flatters to deceive...

    ...too many times now, as you can tell I am really peed off and I feel that he is the link that consistantly blows chances that so called quality players should finish...
    Don't agree , sorry ..... Gully plated ok today and to intimate that he was in some way to blame beggers belief .
    According to Uncle Dave, Guly played well. As well as his cross another noptable point was when he put out another excellent defensive ball up to Lambert from which we almost scored This was when our backs were against the wall.

    If he had scored the winner his rating may have edged up from OK to played well almost, Well if it was not Guly!!!! Total garbage booooooooo!!

    Leaving Guly aside (From what I can tell from the radio he played well). It looks like we could not keep possesion and played too deep when we let in the second goal. Have not defended a lead so poorly for a while.
    Not a Guly fan sometimes he lacks commitment, (someone has already mentioned the Joel Ward goal for the skates!) but I have to say he was committed today, I won't criticise any saints player who wears the shirt with pride, if that's the level of performance he is going to give week in week out I will be happy to see him play. Hurts losing the 3 points, and seeing us back in the bottom three. I hope we strengthen during January, but I am with those who feel that maybe a poacher with a bit of pace may be top of the list.

    STID

    I saw the match on stream too and thought Guly played pretty well, maybe I was watching a different Guly to Warren!
    Felt like a defeat at the final whistle but I would have taken a point if offered before kick off. On to the next one and at least the gooners don't seem to be playing too well at the mo'!!!!!

    I heard this morning on Solent that Portsmouth Council are closing a number of public toilets to save money.
    Will they include Fratton Park?.
