Ronald Koeman was excited about the potential of Saphir Taider after seeing the Inter Milan loan star shine as a late sub as Saints lost their final pre-season friendly 1-0 to Bayer Leverkusen.

In a game of few chances, it was Graziano Pelle’s unfortunate own goal on 57 minutes that proved to be the difference between the sides at St Mary’s.

But it was the introduction of Taider and Gaston Ramirez in the second period that brought Saints to life and helped lift the side, albeit they were unable to find an equaliser.

“I was happy with the performance of Taider in the second half because he brought with him a new ambition in the team and that was very good,” said Koeman.

“(We want) to have a squad which is big enough in quality to have a tough season.”

Taider came on in an advanced role, but was later dropped deeper.

Koeman admitted he has yet to decide where to play him in the long run.

“He can play in a controlled position and he can play a little bit more up,” reflected the Saints boss.

“When he came on in the second half he had good movement forwards and he showed his talents. I was happy about that.”

The defeat was Saints’ first in pre-season after previously notching five back-to-back victories.

Koeman confessed a bit of intensity was missing, with it being a friendly game, but was generally upbeat about his side’s display ahead of their Premier League opener against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

“In general yes, it was a good match on a good level against a good Champions League opponent, Leverkusen,” reflected Koeman.

“We didn’t deserve to lose and the goal they scored was very lucky for them and very unlucky for us.

“In the first 45 minutes we had the better chances to score but in some moments in the match we have to know that we have to play quicker, that we have to be more aggressive and the last 15-20 per cent in a good way prepared for the next week.

“We know we have to do better than we did today.”

“It’s always bad to lose but the result was not the most important, but it’s always better to win than to lose.

“It will be different (at Anfield) because then we play for points and this time not.

“Normally we will be more aggressive and I spoke to the team after the match said ‘OK, we missed maybe 10-15 per cent and maybe that’s friendly football. We will have it next week and we need it next week.’”

Agree with Koeman, i think fans need to be a bit realistic and accept that this is going to be a tough season. I left relatively optimistic considering recent events at our club yet waiting for the bus it appears i was at a different game/club as all i could hear was negative ****

Ye'h sounds like a good bloke,at least he is honest and say's it as it is and no interpreter to double check what has been said before giving the answer, it most certainly makes a change, I can clearly remember the Argie Mercerany's excuse when he "played around" with the team selection in the FA Cup v Sunderland.

Again, I think we need to have some perspective here, while being disappointed about what's happened.

In one of our previous successful spells in the Premier League we had the likes of Paul Telfer and Brett Ormerod gracing our first team.

We've still got some talented players to enjoy and more to be added.

Of course it depends what you're expecting from the team next season, but I'd like to think we can have a stable season and, if things go better than expected, all well and good.

We do of course need that striker and defender (and maybe plural on both of those) but I think we'll be OK if we can bring those in.

Of all the positions it's probably Yoshida who needs to be displaced most as he will cost us goals and we know that already.

Agree with Ron, he made a really exciting and positive impact just when others were beginning to flag, he had a good touch and could play that No10 role with great effect. Gaston also looked good, but a bit slow on the ball, needing too much time, class player though. Did anyone think Ron looked a bit like a ships captain with his chinos and navy jacket? Really impressed with his honesty though, he said Tadic was a bit slow on the ball and he was!! Great to hear that from a manager he's thinking what the normal fan is thinking, great!!

We just need a bit of luck to tide us over until the team gel together. I think the start to this season is going to be similar to our first season back in the EPL under Nigel Adkins. We were very unlucky losing our opening game away 3-2 to Man City that day. Anyway I don't expect too much from the Liverpooool game it is just annoying that we won't know our best team until 2nd September.

Saints do not have any normal fans.
I fancy I am relatively normal to compared to most of them, but that is a subjective opinion.

Like the Man City game, our current first choice back four is likely to concede a few against the bigger clubs, but do we have the same kind of fire power to score a few ourselves at present?

We obviously progressed last season, but our two big achille's heels were an inability to finish our big chances when they came and a tendency for individual mistakes. We've not really done anything to make me think we've addressed these two ends of the pitch yet, but there is still time.

As I said, next week isn't going to be the game to judge anything on, not least because the squad is far from finished.

Hopefully if we can keep them quiet initially we can start getting the home fans nervous. Going to be critical to take care of Sterling and Sturridge in the first 20 minutes.

I'm guessing we'll keep Boruc between the sticks? I'd say it would be wise.

Good to hear straight opinion from Ron.
He knows that we lack quality and he has yet to sort out his best team, line up and tactics.

There will be more comings and goings right up to 1st Sept. then another 5 or 6 games to sort out and settle the new players in.

Lets just hope that we can pick up some points in these early games because they get harder at end of November.

The next 5 players MUST be of a BETTER quality than the ones we have just brought in, especially a top Goalscorer, CB and hopefully Morgan back we will start to look a bit better.

Would like Ron to play the high tempo pressing game and not so much of the route one ball up to Pelle.
