Saints suffered their first defeat of pre-season as they were beaten 1-0 by Bayer Leverkusen at St Mary’s.

After five successive wins for Ronald Koeman leading into the game, the Germans proved just too strong and edged out a victory in Saints’ final warm-up game, courtesy of Graziano Pelle’s own goal early in the second half.

There is still work to do for Koeman and the club over the next week before the Premier League season kicks-off against Liverpool at Anfield.

Celtic keeper Fraser Forester is expected to finally complete his signing in a £10m move, while a centre half and a striker also remain top transfer priorities for the club.

Bayer Leverkusen had the first chance of the game as they pressed forward after just two minutes allowing Hakan Calhanoglu the chance to shoot from the edge of the area but it was deflected just wide.

There was not too much goalmouth action in the opening stages of the game as both teams played some fluent football up until the final third where it all came a little unstuck.

Koeman’s side were playing a fluid formation, that at times appeared to be a 4-1-4-1 with Victor Wanyama sat in front of the back four, but quickly moved to a 4-2-3-1 when Steven Davis dropped back in to help defend.

Saints created their first opening from a set piece on 21 minutes.

Dusan Tadic whipped in an inswinging left footed corner that found its way to Maya Yoshida eight yards out.

He fired low towards goal but was prevented from scoring the opener by the post.

Just a few minutes later Leverkusen launched a quick counter attack that ended with Karim Bellarbi curling a shot from 20 yards just wide of Artur Boruc’s goal.

Saints threatened to break through on 32 minutes as James Ward-Prowse closed in on a high lobbed ball over the top but keeper Bernd Leno was alert to the danger and charged out of his area, just managing to shut out the danger before the midfielder could finish.

The Leverksuen stopper was in business again a minute later, having to back peddle quickly to turn Tadic’s chip over the bar.

That proved to be the last attacking action of the first half which ended, quite fairly, goalless.

Leverkusen made five changes at the break, but Koeman sent out the same side for the second period as he looked to blend his team as a unit.

But it was bad news as on 57 minutes Saints fell behind, conceding an odd own goal.

Calhanoglu mishit a right footed corner and the ball bounced before it had even reached the near post.

Graziano Pelle was on hand to deal with it on the edge of the six yard box but as he sunk down to try and meet it the ball hit him and deflected goalwards, where Boruc was beaten.

Koeman responded by making a double change with Gaston Ramirez and new signing Saphir Taider replacing Ward-Prowse and Lloyd Isgrove.

The pair linked up well after just a few minutes, Ramirez flicking a pass back to Taider whose early shot from 20 yards took a deflection and looped just over the bar.

After another series of five changes form Leverkusen, Ramirez went close himself, cutting in from the right and unleashing a left footed shot that went narrowly over the bar.

Saints made two further substitutions on 77 minutes as Jack Cork and Emmanuel Mayuka came on for Victor Wanyama and Steven Davis, with Taider dropping into a slightly deeper role and Mayuka more advanced.

Saints were lucky not to go further behind on 80 minutes as Julian Brandt breezed past Yoshida and tried to lift a shot towards goal that wasn’t powerful enough to outpace the back tracking Ryan Bertrand who cleared the danger.

Saints managed some late pressure on the Leverkusen area but couldn’t muster an equaliser as they rounded off their pre-season preparations with a first taste of defeat this summer.

SAINTS: Boruc, Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Bertrand, Wanyama (Cork 77), S Davis (Mayuka 77), Ward-Prowse (Ramirez 61), Tadic, Isgrove (Taider 61), Pelle.

I know we all know - but need to get those couple of players in to stenthen the defence at CB ans also another option for Strike.

Forster will help Boruc up his game.

No need to panic here!!!! Leverkusen is a top team. we are in rebuilding process ...
No team is invincible NOT even Chelsea, It's not always the defeat that matters, but the way we are defeated, there is a lot of positive to take from this game, one is they didnt score, we made a mistake and scored own goal....

The performance wasnt bad at all..

Great attendance today for a friendly. Questions have been asked about the passion of the board (wrongly IMO), however, there can be no questions about the passion of the fans.

Don't worry about us, be more concerned about your nearest rivals in the south , that's if they don't pass you on your way down at the end of the season when you end up in the conference.

My favourite moment was in the first half when one of the Krauts tried to muscle his way through and slammed into Vic. The sheer look of surprise on his face gave you the impression he had been hit by a tiger tank, he didn't go near Wana again.

I watched this match and the defence looked shaky. Yoshida is the weak link and we need to find a CB ASAP. I am sure RK knows this as he was getting frustrated by the mistakes in the second half. However as someone else has mentioned it wasn't that bad and the first half we passed the ball well. pele ran more yards than Lambert did all last season so plenty of effort.
But he needs support so a striker , CB and Forster would set us up to quite competitive. Boruc looked a bit disinterested I thought maybe he has had his nose put out of joint with the talk about Forster.

Not our fault if the home club restricted the number of tickets for away supporters to 1500; every one of which sold out immediately they went on sale. Plus a few hundred more mixed in peacefully with the home crowd... let's see how many you take to Anfield next week.

Tadic looked quality today and his link up play with Clyne was brilliant. Davis absolute class as always, Wanyama was shutting up shop, he's going to come on this season. Fonte relishing the captains role. Pleel needs to sharpen up and start using his size to dominate. Ramirez looks like he wants to prove himself looked really good, Taider could be a surprise package, Ward Prowse showing maturity beyond his years, Isgrove still has a long way to go. Mayuka needs to take the ball with him when he runs at defenders, but showed more today then I've seen from him before.
My only big worry is Yoshida, sorry needs to be 4th choice CB

Would like to see a goal poacher Hernandez please, and Virgil Van Dijk. We were supposed to be interested in Phillipp Wollscheid who came on for Leverkusen and looked an excellent CB

My feelings are we will be comfortably safe this season

I fealt that saints movement was sluggish at times particularly in the first half.
The ball needs to be played earlier to Pelle and not always in the air.
Tadic and Clyne worked well Fonte was Saints best player.
Taider looks quick and sharp,saints improved second half with Jack Corks
ball control.
Ramires had a good effort just over from 20 yards.
Saints finished playing their best football of the game.
Was getting quite p1ssed off with the play acting of the opposition and the poor refereeing.

I agree, some nice football, but a bit one trick pony, Pelle won a lot of the high balls but no one was anticipating where the ball was going to end up. We really do need a quality CB and a goal scoring striker, get those and we are well on the way to a really good side. Only more time getting to know each others strengths will get results. There is no lack of quality, just application.

Apart from the own goal, I'm glad to see the result wasn't the whipping that some people predicted. Leverkusen are a quality team. A win would have been good, but considering that we haven't had time to gel I thought the result was acceptable. As many people have pointed out before the game, the obvious weaknesses have been made evident, along with our strengths. If this result is anything to go by, we can look forward to an exciting season if we can strengthen our defense and attack.

You seem to know more about it than we do, did you try to organize it? 17,690 isn't so dusty for a meaningless friendly, f there were any away fans, I didn't see or hear them. 5,694 enjoyed your 1 - 1 draw today, magnificent support, not.
Not our fault if the home club restricted the number of tickets for away supporters to 1500; every one of which sold out immediately they went on sale. Plus a few hundred more mixed in peacefully with the home crowd... let's see how many you take to Anfield next week.
We had the same problem last season, away allocations should be better planned, I think we both suffer from that, as I said your away support was impressive, for a Division Two team.

All seems good to me. Pelle looked like a good target man and didn't lose a single ball all game ( Forget the OG!) A nippy striker to accompany would be good.

Having to queue endlessly for everything at the Northam end was a bit annoying though. I'll put it down as being a friendly.

Here is my opinion on today's performance for you all to discuss.

Generally a solid but uninspiring performance, I missed the high tempo pressing & passing game we got used to last season.

We lacked a cutting edge, we are Screaming out for a Goal-scoring STRIKER to partner Pelle, who looked OK as a target man but I don't see him scoring as many goals as Ricky. Mayuka moved well but don't think he will be the answer, a useful sub at best.

Tadic had flashes of quality but did not contribute as much as Lalana did, hopefully he will improve. Taider also looked OK but both midfielders did not look any better than we already have. I thought Davis, Wanyama & Cork looked our best midfielders. JWP needs to up his game this season and unfortunately Isgrove does not look the part at this level just yet.

We missed Morgan so need to get him to stay, or go and sign Jordy Classie urgently.

In defense we looked steady but uncertain. Urgently need TWO top quality CB's. Maya can by OK as injury cover but two better CB's to compete with Jose are urgently required. Bertrand looked the best of the new players to me. Cline also did well but neither full backs got forward enough.

I am not sure that Forster is better than Boruc but is a good signing and will give good competition for each other.

In Summary we still need at least FOUR new players who are BETTER than the ones we have. The team still needs that extra quality to tighten at the back and most importantly, score more goals.

Keep at it Les only three weeks left before the window shuts.

It's a bit like when dirty harry brought all those illegal immigrants as you put it into your sh1t club . Then they all left after bleeding you dry. Where as the players coming to the biggest club on the south are coming from some of the biggest clubs in Europe . We won't be bled dry by mercenaries like you did .

Facts are that the incoming players did not look any better than the ones who have left us, so we are not yet as good as last year. Forster is good but no better than Boruc.

We MUST BUY BETTER players than we already have to improve the quality of the 11 on the pitch. We have bought useful players but are desperate for extra quality, especially a STRIKER & CB urgently.

A top STRIKER - Hernandez or better;
A CM - Jordy CLASSIE especially as it looks as though Morgan will go;
TWO top CB's - Gardos and Rojo, as it doesn't look as though Vlaar or van Dijk will be coming.
Plus Winger and cover for full back.

Only three weeks left Les so keep working on these top quality signings

Hernandez is not and never will be a top striker or Manure would not be so willing to dump him. He was very successful until defenders worked him out and suddenly he started drying up. He's a good striker with limited capabilities but noting more.
If only there was somebody steering the ship when Defoe became available - yes he's coming to the end of a great career but he would have given us two seasons as leader of our forwards and another good season on the bench. Somewhere out there there is a younger version of him and we have to find him fast. Danny Ings - not as quick as Defoe but still pretty nippy - only time will tell if he's good enough for the PL.

That aside a positive and encouraging display. Notably good perfromances from Tadic, & Bertrand, Pelle looking strong but in need of a 'partner'...Davis and Fonte v solid, and Wanyama looking good....certainly no need to panic, and more signings on the way. Btw Yoshida looked pretty solid and given more games will certainly improve...need to get behind him, nlike some fans around me moaning and getting on his back...not helpful....

Apart from the own goal, I'm glad to see the result wasn't the whipping that some people predicted. Leverkusen are a quality team. A win would have been good, but considering that we haven't had time to gel I thought the result was acceptable. As many people have pointed out before the game, the obvious weaknesses have been made evident, along with our strengths. If this result is anything to go by, we can look forward to an exciting season if we can strengthen our defense and attack.
Ron knows where we need to strengthen, he's no idiot, he has a quality team around him, Sammy Lee and his brother, both excellent pro's.

Ron was a top, top defender, he knows what he needs and has told Les what to go get. I fully expect 3 more in by the close of the window.

Remember, it's not just us saying we want a player, the club has to get the best deal, assess the loss and can they replace a player with the squad, or go get a replacement, the player does too, and then, the agent!

I'll judge this squad after 10 games in, and not any sooner. What's the point, every team needs to settle. Remember two seasons ago, we were bottom, but started to come good and pull away after, let me see, oh yes, after 10 games.

Not our fault if the home club restricted the number of tickets for away supporters to 1500; every one of which sold out immediately they went on sale. Plus a few hundred more mixed in peacefully with the home crowd... let's see how many you take to Anfield next week.
Maximum of 1,813 tickets, a few still available the last I heard. Because they altered it only three of my group can make it.
Completely Sold Out for Anfield, even the over priced restricted view tickets have all been snapped up.
