    I feel the team will now go on a run, possibly overtaking Newcastle, and possibly - if one of either Tottenham or Everton go through a bit of an injury crisis, or the Sherwood Honeymoon ends - one of them too, leaving us somewhere around 7th at the end of the season. Can't see any of the other teams above us losing enough points for us to catch them, or any of the teams below us being good enough to overtake us. I'd call that a great season, and an excellent base for building next season with a couple of quality recruits in the summer. If we get anyone who represents quality and value in the window I wouldn't mind, but I won't be upset if we do no business at all and give the academy players a chance to get some game time.

    Of course, for that scenario to work we have to start back on a good run by beating West Brom today; it seems we keep getting hit by the 'new manager' syndrome, though, so it might not be as straightforward as I would have liked. But, since I believe in the Saints, I think we'll win 2-0.

    However, since that's the score Lawrenson predicted it will probably be something very different, but that's my tuppence worth.

    Reminds me of a WBA game at The Dell many years ago. WBA spent 90 minutes with 10 players not just behind the ball but in their own box. The most tepid, boring match I can remember from that era. What made it worse is that I had left my season ticket at home and the 4rse in the ticket office wouldn't give me an entry pass, so I had to buy another ticket.

    Norgie, I'd settle for a late, late Guly winner right now.

    Crossing is the worse I've seen for quite a while. Seldom beating the first man, rarely reaching a Saints player, when it does.
    WBA's tactics are pretty clear. Sit back, absorb the "pressure" (not much being exerted so far despite the possession stats) and score on the counter.

    Chambers has done well and improves the more he plays but he is still young and it's right that he isn't picked every week.

    Meanwhile, along with many on here, I believe Clyne is probably the best English right back around at the moment.

    Yep! I was very disappointed with West Brom. I hope some of their fans see what we think of them today. Nothing against them as a club but three (maybe four) things stood out.

    1. 10 men behind the ball - DULL, DULL, DULL!!!
    2. Time wasting from the first minute - DULL, DULL, DULL!!!
    3. Even at 1-0, with a couple of exceptions near the end, they showed as much ambition as a go-kart in a grand prix.

    You have to wonder how they almost won at The Bridge.

    Add to that the annoying, diving, cheating Shane 'I WILL win a dubious free kick before the end' Long and the fact that, under several of their previous managers, they were a team that always tried to play football the right way and I feel rather sad for their fans. They'll stay up, but only because teams like Fulham, Palace and Spam are worse.

    just seen punch`s penalty miss. oh dear! I think it went over 2 goal heights. it was a great effort to get the ball so high from just 12 yards.

    MP has just said wanyama will be back for either the Yeovil cup game or the arsenil game, a few days after, at the end of the month.

    Victor will be very handy against the @rse.

    That was a heck of a gamble to take Corky off, he was playing out of his skin, but wow did it work well, full marks Poch. Great Officiating all around, not sure that Dejan deserved a card, and have seen red given for the tackle that took Lallana out, but our record against ten men is notorious so I am glad Howard Webb kept it level. Not a spectacle, but a clean sheet and actual backing from the crowd when they could easily have got frustrated by the negative tactics from Albion, I think we deserved all three points well done all concerned.

    Excellent! See you there.

    Of course, we could make it double or quits by pitching little Velleity against one of the little Strassies on the pool table.

    No pressure, kids!

    On a negative note, we made hard work of beating a poor WBA, on a positive note, we won playing badly. And, by 'badly' I should add that there was a lot of decent football, just that there was also a sense that too many players were not at their best.

    Thank you Boruc; had nothing much to do, then gained back 2 of the points he feels (unfairly) that he owes us.
    its always harder to play against a team who `don't want to play` though stras. they even left their best striker on the bench until near the end.
    putting 10 men behind the ball in the way they did today reminded me of the way that hoof play. we needed a touch of class to unlock them today and we got it from gaston and lalla.
    happy with the win, its what we needed and we have Boruc to thank as well.
    Boruc again showed why he is ne of the best keepers in the prem. it helps that the defence was strong again. we are getting our players back to fitness and will start to climb the table again.
    Yep! I was very disappointed with West Brom. I hope some of their fans see what we think of them today. Nothing against them as a club but three (maybe four) things stood out.

    1. 10 men behind the ball - DULL, DULL, DULL!!!
    2. Time wasting from the first minute - DULL, DULL, DULL!!!
    3. Even at 1-0, with a couple of exceptions near the end, they showed as much ambition as a go-kart in a grand prix.

    You have to wonder how they almost won at The Bridge.

    Add to that the annoying, diving, cheating Shane 'I WILL win a dubious free kick before the end' Long and the fact that, under several of their previous managers, they were a team that always tried to play football the right way and I feel rather sad for their fans. They'll stay up, but only because teams like Fulham, Palace and Spam are worse.

    Weren't they just awful? I'm amazed they have any points at all with Shane(the diver) Long and Nicolas(over the hill )Anelka as their strike force. Only one team trying to play and we got our just reward with a rare moment of quality. Last season Mulumbu was their main man. Today Spider was never far away from him and snuffed him out pretty well. Jack did a great job too. Nice to see a ref not trying to be the centre of attention and there didn't seem to be any contentious moments. Great save from Artur too.
