Ronald Koeman believes all thoughts of Saints struggling this season should be dispelled by his side’s opening day performance at Liverpool.

Though Saints lost the game at Anfield 2-1, they gave as good as they got and so nearly bagged an equaliser in the dying minutes.

All the talk in the build-up in the wider footballing world was just how bad rather than how good Saints would be this season after losing their manager and many of their big names during a tough summer.

Many even tipped them for relegation, despite the fact they finished eighth last season.

Koeman even hinted that the squad had to prove to themselves, as well as other people, that were good enough.

But he feels that was achieved quite empathically by the performance at Anfield against an expensively assembled Liverpool squad who have title ambitions.

He said: “Always there is one answer to all of those stories – it’s between the white lines to show the people, and first to show ourselves that we have to believe in our qualities.

“It was one of the messages that we gave the boys before the match and little by little we did it.

“We played a great, impressive second half and that’s the way how we like to play and if we play like that with that team spirit I don’t think that we will struggle in the whole season.”

Koeman was happy to admit that his side had a share of misfortune not to get something from the game.

But he was also realistic enough to admit that Liverpool’s attacking quality enabled them to take two of their few chances and that clinical nature in front of goal proved the difference and meant that they duly earned their three points.

“Yes, it was unlucky but finally always the final score makes the points,” reflected Koeman.

“I think we played a great, impressive second half and after the 1-1 I think there was one team on the pitch playing and it was Southampton.

“We did everything well, minus to score the second one.

“We created two great possibilities, opportunities, but the quality of Liverpool they don’t need a lot of opportunities to score two goals and that made the difference. That always makes the difference in football.

“The way we played brings us a lot of confidence and if we play like this the points will come.”

We were fit, organised, and had a good attitude; could easily have been a win or draw. RK is our best signing of the Summer!! Top ten finish for sure.

That was a very good performance - got better as game progressed. Could easily have got a point or even 3. Good team selection - thought some did better than others - defence & midfield sound - need to be little sharper up front. Would hope Boruc/Ramariz not sulking as will need them at some time this season . Liverpool nothing special today & we gave them a very good game & they were fortunate to win. RK can feel very proud of his team.

Excellent performance, so unlucky. Tadic looks top quality.

Does anyone know if Gaston or Boruc are injured, just left out or sulking?

A great performance by the Saints.Deserved at least one point if not all three.
If we up the tempo a wee bit against West Brom should get our first win of the league season.
COME ON YOU RED AND WHITE STRIPES
P.S.Great poacher's goal by Billy Sharp for Leeds. Pity he wasn't ever given a chance for Saints in the Prem.

I agree, we nearly won it, but at least we deserved a draw had Davis and Long taken their chances...

The second goal was Fonte's mistake, he let the ball pass thinking that Fraser would collect it, but unfortunately fell on Daniel Sturridge's foot..
It's something he will regret.

Dusan is a Germ he linked well with Bertrand...the future is looking good....

Clyne's Goal was a beauty....he is a fearless little soldier...

Forster is big presence in goal and will cover shots from mid to long range well but to me lacked quickness, agility and willingness to go to ground. Felt could have done better on both goals, just bent at knees did not lay body out quickly. Am I wrong ? Too harsh?

Really pleased with the performance today and if we can carry that on throughout the season, then I think we'll do ok. We got better towards end of first half and were in control in the second and really pleasing as we were away from home!! The two goals were soft to concede I thought, but only first game in and we had good chances to score also. I'm pleased that the media got to see what we can do today which might finally get them to lighten up on us and all the talk seems to be about how bad Liverpool were, so up the Saints!! Let's get on the RK bus!! COYR!!!

There were so many top performances, from our team
Tadić, on that one performance, looks as though he might eclipse Liellana.
Wanyama, possibly had his best game in a Saints shirt.
JWP, in the advanced midfield role, was very influential, especially second half, and a sign that we have a manager that can see the best positions for his players.
And the Yoshida, defensive meltdown, so many predicted, didn't happen, against a very strong, pacey, attacking team.

Well done to everyone.

We had no idea how SFC would play today. Was it a patched up team waiting for a spanking? Or, would Ronald Koeman stem the exodus with a performance? The latter prevailed and I am personally proud of our endeavours. These are my ratings: Forster, 6 Clyne 7, Yoshida 6, Fonte 6, Bertrand 6. Wanyama 8, Tadic 7, Davies 6, JWP 7, Schneiderlein 6, Pelle 5

We took a while to get going but once we did I thought we looked decent. Finishing still an issue and mistakes at the back cost us. A draw would have been a fair result. Victor was my motm for saints, he is such a physical presence in midfield.

Been following this great team from afar for 12 years now after living in Soton for 7 yrs previous.
Wanted to say how impressed I was with today's performance from start to finish. Right from the whistle saints looked composed and steady which is a credit to koemans team preparation. Forster, even for a first game looks like safe hands and confidence will be high in defense-even with the loss of lovren.
Tough outing for pelle who really didn't get much of a look but some of the link up play today with tadic especially looked frightening! Wanyama was awesome , best game in a saints shirt!! Could name every player here but I wanted to give a mention to Steven Davis - ok he missed a good chance but the guy is a MACHINE!!

Great passion - just like the team. Victor was the best player on the pitch for my money. Tadic looked like he'll be class once he's used to the pace of the epl. Morgan seemed commited, as did Bertrand and Forseter.

In short, I'm over the moon with that performance - as good as anything MoPo led us to. And the thing with RoKo is that you get the sense he sees us as more than a stepping stone and really wants to be here.

Overall I was very proud of our lads today, not worried about the result as Liverpool were lucky to get three points here. Some lovely moves, and great team spirit in their first game together. You 'd have thought it was Saints who had spent £100m, in the second half. JWP played a blinder with some awsome corners and free kicks; used to be we couldn't take a corner....not so now, so we need Pelle and Long to get their heads to some of these. With Gardos to come in I'm feeling very confident.

Stick that in your pipe Phil Neville, and start developing some original viewpoints instead of copying what others say - how can he put Saints in the bottom 3?

I don't know how other fans feel but i for one am getting a little fed up with some of our players using social media to vent their feelings. If you get dropped FFs man up and work your socks off in training. Yes it's a bit harsh after such a good season but every position will need some healthy competition.

Excellent performance, so unlucky. Tadic looks top quality.

Does anyone know if Gaston or Boruc are injured, just left out or sulking?
I understand Borat is sulking. Don't know about Gaston.

Forster, even for a first game looks like safe hands and confidence will be high in defense-even with the loss of lovren.
Tough outing for pelle who really didn't get much of a look but some of the link up play today with tadic especially looked frightening! Wanyama was awesome , best game in a saints shirt!! Could name every player here but I wanted to give a mention to Steven Davis - ok he missed a good chance but the guy is a MACHINE!!

Trouble is they do it in the heat of the moment but then it's out there. I suppose he would agree with you about new players not walking straight into the team and then ask why Fraser did. Personally I'd have started with him as I don't think he's done anything to lose his place. To really challenge we need pressure on every position and we didn't have that last season other than RB and MF.

We were excellent today and as they get match time together plus the addition of Florin and a returning JayRod we've got to be optimistic about top ten which given the upheaval of the summer would be amazing. Anything more would be awesome.

Anyone know where Gaston is? Ron has used him so he must feature in his plans.

Tadić, on that one performance, looks as though he might eclipse Liellana.
Wanyama, possibly had his best game in a Saints shirt.
JWP, in the advanced midfield role, was very influential, especially second half, and a sign that we have a manager that can see the best positions for his players.
And the Yoshida, defensive meltdown, so many predicted, didn't happen, against a very strong, pacey, attacking team.

Well done to everyone.
Except for the Yoshida trip with his back leg that we got away with.

Great performance today, came alive after conceding the first goal and bossed the game for over an hour away to supposedly the second best team in the land. Fonte and JWP were superb, Wanyama MOM, didn't think Tadic was as good as some other posters but certainly he and Pelle showed enough to suggest that will be excellent signings once they've adapted. Also pleasantly surprised by Bertrand, looked a bit of a donkey on loan at Villa but solid performance and brings some much-needed pace to the team. Clyne's goal was a peach, couldn't fault Forster for either of theirs. Bring on West Brom!

A good all round performance against a very ordinary side which won't make top four. Tadic looks good and JWP playing a more forward role impressed as well. We just need to develop a bit more understanding up front as balls were being played but runners weren't making the runs. Don't agree even slightly that Spider isn' t interested. He had a good game and came very close on a couple of occasions and could easily have been the match winner. That's just what is needed to get the fans back loving him. As I said in an earlier post Yoshida is Prem standard and will improve if given game time. Bertrand easily as good as Shaw and will provide more assists over the season. Tadic too will prove to be better than Lielanna. He doesn't have to rely on the Cruyff turn and has more about him. Great little backheel to catch out Judas for the goal as well.

Well happy with that ..at this stage its the performance that counts not grabbing lucky points tho they are welcome....wasnt too pleased with 1st half but 2nd half we bossed the show ..sturridge was the only save foster had to make and with just a little luck would have been 2-2 or 2-3...very encouraged esp with long ,taider and co on the bench..Isgrove looked like hed been playing the prem for years another acadamy star taking to the prem like a duck to water....who needs a new winger this lad has got it! Prowse was excellent and wanayama showing why we celtic loved him!...Get some points on the board and shut the critics up!

Tadić, on that one performance, looks as though he might eclipse Liellana.
Wanyama, possibly had his best game in a Saints shirt.
JWP, in the advanced midfield role, was very influential, especially second half, and a sign that we have a manager that can see the best positions for his players.
And the Yoshida, defensive meltdown, so many predicted, didn't happen, against a very strong, pacey, attacking team.

Well done to everyone.
Except for the Yoshida trip with his back leg that we got away with.
If you want to highlight negatives, rather than look at the positives, how about the trip by Fonte, that could have been a penalty?
Or the poor challenge by Morgan, for the first goal?
Or Clyne being too far forward, allowing Sterling the space to run into, for the opening goal?
Or could it be that their name isn't Yoshida, the new Guly, with some fans.

It's something he will regret.

It reminded me a lot of when we played at Old Trafford under MoPo's second game in charge: we might have lost 2-1 but bossed the second half to such an extent that home fans came out looking embarrassed. (I might have pointed out to several of them that they deserved to.)

We shouldn't get carried away because Liverpool were awful but I think today has shown this season is going to be about way more than survival. We're clearly going big on width and banging in crosses which is great but we can't leave Pelle in there on his own and expect him to out jump three defenders. There's work to do but, encouragingly, I think we have the wherewithall to do it.

I just watched an MLT compilation on You Tube and it got me thinking. . . now he is welcome back at St Mary's, why don't we get him coaching our lads on how to score goals?

He was/is a genius, and if he could teach a few of them to hit a half-volley as sweetly as he so often did, we would score loads more than we do now.

Just a thought.

Good performance today - not many teams will do better at Anfield I'm sure.

Liverpool fan here in peace. I was very surprised with the quality of your play and fitness. I thought your performance was more like a top 6 team rather than a bottom 6 team and the result could have been any of a win, loss or draw for either team.Fortunately we got the win.Tadic ,Wanyama and Ward Prowse stood out to me while the others gave busy performances. I must say though that it will be probably 2 months before we incorporate the majority of our 7or 8 signings and the same can be said of your team as well and early in season a win is important irrespective of the performance .Last year we had a few nervous 1-0 victories early on before developing fluency in our play.Anyway good luck for the rest of the season.Good game.

Got back home at midnight after a leisurely drive and dinner and drink on the way back from Anfield. I was very happy today and not just because of the way we performed as a team that is less than a week old. My main reason was that I was with a crowd of people who sang and cheered (and booed Lovren) throughout the game. Everyone positive and happy and right behind the team. We were all truly happy clappers! Made such a change from being stuck here with the gloom and doom merchants who I notice are mostly absent from here tonight presumably because their predictions of disaster haven't come to pass. They may point out we lost but this was a team today that's going to do well. Squad looking strong, more to come and if the likes of Schneiderlin give up sulking and start pulling their weight (which he didn't fully do today) then we will be a force to reckon with again.

Decent performance as a team, albeit with some individual weaknesses to iron out. Looked pretty sluggish down the right in the first half, but Clyne came good in the second. Tadic was pivotal – thought it was a bit odd to take him off. Awful miss by Long. Not going to write him off yet, but for £12m I'd expect him to hit the target with that header. Should have got a point at least, but three points wouldn't have been undeserved. Naturally the highlights I just watched show none of our second half dominance though. They completely cut out the Davis chance. Typical.

Still think brandon rodgers is an absolute tw&t, cant wait till he falls on his arse and gets sacked for being a total knob. 2 when we got promoted to the premier league adam the tit lallaland wasnt worth 2.5 mil, let alone 25 mil, rickie was probably worth 4 mil to a championship side, or reading, both these pkayers are gone, luke shaw callum chambers and lovren hadnt played for us. My point is we are a better side with out those players than the team that got promoted. We avoided rekegation. Better manager now and kinder fixtures helps. 3. When boruc, yoshida, and fox, played in the same side the 3 of them couldnt pass the ball, or clear it, 5 foot, their mistakes led to loads of goals and lost points, when holliveld was playing it was worse he would finish their mistakes of by scorinfg an own goal or two!! Or7!! Yoshida made his customary **** up, I knew we would lose when I saw him starting,. With another defensive signing were be fine. Weve needed to sign 4 defenders for 3 years now, if koeman think we dont he like those b4 him is nuts. When yoshida, fox, hover, and take your pick out of the goalies who were playing when boruc was injured the confidence of the team went, right through the side mistakes were made. Clear rhem out we can be more solid better confidence in the team. Sale yoshida and hover I think is a very giod idea. The main reason I say this as under adkins we hwd 4 points after 10 games was losing games because of mistake after mistake, still I never once thought we would be relegated cause we still scored loads of goals, when your down the bottom conceding loads and not scoring your doomed. We clearly dont have as many goals in the side this season, so its doubly important we sort out the defence with some quality back uo defenders, or im afraid to say with the replace ments at the moments, prone to mistakes and the other chap we signed the other day dont work out we could seriously be in sh!t street. Still im convinced theirs 3 worse sides. The good news get through this season were be fine next season.

I can tell you are a passionate fan. I meant no disrespect the other day remarking on your grammar, I hope you didn't take it to heart. I did find it hard to read though. I agree with your take on the defense, just my opinion, but I think we are a bit too reliant on Gardos and Fonte as our quality defense. I would still like to see another signing in this area despite reports that this will not happen.

Didn't hear the game and couldn't bear to look at final result as to be frank none us us really knew what sort of team we were supporting!

In one sense a feeling of de ja vue - played them off the park, missed chances, other team has real goalscorers etc etc etc.

However we can only get better provided we start to get some points and don't get our confidence shattered, and that includes our forwards who can only improve as they get up to speed and the team gels more. Another addition however is clearly needed as RK has pointed out.

Many reasons however to be cheerful this morning, which is not what fans normally say after losing a match!!!!

Liverpool fan here in peace. I was very surprised with the quality of your play and fitness. I thought your performance was more like a top 6 team rather than a bottom 6 team and the result could have been any of a win, loss or draw for either team.Fortunately we got the win.Tadic ,Wanyama and Ward Prowse stood out to me while the others gave busy performances. I must say though that it will be probably 2 months before we incorporate the majority of our 7or 8 signings and the same can be said of your team as well and early in season a win is important irrespective of the performance .Last year we had a few nervous 1-0 victories early on before developing fluency in our play.Anyway good luck for the rest of the season.Good game.
Thanks for this post, I think both teams look as though they need time for the new players to settle. However both sides look short of a top Goalscorer, your S & S two are better than ours hence your winning the game which looked the difference between the two teams.
Of your three ex-Saints Lovren will prove to be your best buy.

Was not over impressed with Koeman's response about keeping Morgan. 'I hope so.' What happened to the 'He is not for sale'? It seems more to back up the rumor that if the bidding hits a certain price then he will be allowed to talk to clubs and according to paper talk Spurs and Arsenal look set to fight it out.
On top of that the commentators on the stream i was listening to were actually encouraging clubs to come and bid for Wanyama. Why don't they do that with other clubs? Because other clubs do not sell their best players in a fire sale, which however you couch it, that is what it was.
On the other side we are looking at a Columbian winger for 10 million, who can also play right back.
The sooner this transfer window shuts and everyone can settle down to enjoying watching football, and th squad is set at least to January we can begin to stabilize the club.

If what you say is true about Lallana is true, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is, then yes Rodgers should be reported. I also heard that he contacted Saints to wish Rickie a happy birthday in Feb. What's all that about if it's not to start unsettling a player. Unbelievable the club past on the message whereas I'd have destroyed it.

Pleased & surprised at the good performance level. After an understandably nervous start and going a goal down we started to settle down especially in the second half when we started to press higher up the pitch. We had the better chances and should have got at least a point which is the same problem in many games last season, highlighting the need for a more prolific Goalscorer.

Long, Davis, & JWP should have scored and we would have taken the point that we deserved, so I feel that this was a point dropped.

It is early days and the new players need time to settle in and get used to the premiership.

Tadic looks quality and when he learns to quicken his game could be a match winner. Bit disappointed with Pelle as he did not win as much in the air as I hoped but we did not give him a single cross in the box, highlighting the need for a fast top winger.

The defence played well but I still think we need a top CB and leader to organize the back line better, which could have prevented at least one or both of the goals conceded.

Forster looked safe in goal and was a presence, will Jack Cork be good cover for Cline or do we have a youngster to fill in ?

I thought that Victor & Morgan were superb, Jose did well and others like JWP, Bertand & Cline grew as their confidence grew.

So I feel encouraged but still believe we need a top CB, Goalscorer and a fast winger to turn this good performance into wins. The improved quality of these three positions and cover for injuries and suspensions
would lift us back up to, or better last seasons level.

Two weeks to sign these three and we will really look good.

Pleased & surprised at the good performance level. After an understandably nervous start and going a goal down we started to settle down especially in the second half when we started to press higher up the pitch. We had the better chances and should have got at least a point which is the same problem in many games last season, highlighting the need for a more prolific Goalscorer.

Long, Davis, & JWP should have scored and we would have taken the point that we deserved, so I feel that this was a point dropped.

It is early days and the new players need time to settle in and get used to the premiership.

Tadic looks quality and when he learns to quicken his game could be a match winner. Bit disappointed with Pelle as he did not win as much in the air as I hoped but we did not give him a single cross in the box, highlighting the need for a fast top winger.

The defence played well but I still think we need a top CB and leader to organize the back line better, which could have prevented at least one or both of the goals conceded.

Forster looked safe in goal and was a presence, will Jack Cork be good cover for Cline or do we have a youngster to fill in ?

I thought that Victor & Morgan were superb, Jose did well and others like JWP, Bertand & Cline grew as their confidence grew.

So I feel encouraged but still believe we need a top CB, Goalscorer and a fast winger to turn this good performance into wins. The improved quality of these three positions and cover for injuries and suspensions
would lift us back up to, or better last seasons level.

Sorry, also thought Cline was our best player except his lack of concentration between him and Jose for Liverpool's first goal.
Davis did well, but Isgrove needs more game time, confidence and coaching to make him more effective.

I feel so much better after seeing that game, as I feared for us to be honest. But on a downer, it's the same old Saints in front of goal - we simply cannot afford to miss so many chances. Unfortunately, my mate who is a Hull supporter, warned me that Shane Long misses 9 out of every 10 opportunities which became very evident on Sunday! We must score goals, or we will struggle, regardless of how well we play.

I think we survive without the additions we have enough cover, but if we want and we all do to emulate or better last year, we need cover for Clyne not sure if we have that already, we need another CB, we could do with a winger and another option in attack, although in difference to a lot on here I do think Pelle will come good.

I must admit I have never been so upbeat after a loss.

On top of that the commentators on the stream i was listening to were actually encouraging clubs to come and bid for Wanyama. Why don't they do that with other clubs? Because other clubs do not sell their best players in a fire sale, which however you couch it, that is what it was.
On the other side we are looking at a Columbian winger for 10 million, who can also play right back.
The sooner this transfer window shuts and everyone can settle down to enjoying watching football, and th squad is set at least to January we can begin to stabilize the club.








Arsenal
I think Ronnie was saying that he hoped spider would be here long term. He isn't being sold this window, I cant understand why some don't realise that, but he is probably still hoping for a move in the Jan window.
Lets hope that we can have a great start to the season and be in a good position at Christmas. MP might not be at spuds by Jan anyway, looking at their team they might struggle and with levy the chop you never know what might happen.
Ive heard commentators asking why teams haven't bid for players of other teams, and saints, before so I wouldn't read too much into that, although it is not only very annoying but very disrespectful as well. However thats what commentators and pundits do.

As I said before, let the men in the baordroom do their jobs, and let the team do theirs.

My work colleague bet me that Liverpool would win and even gave me the draw and a one goal handicap, so confident was he that we would get tonked..... so at 2-1 I win.... BIG BREAKFAST !! Second year on the trot Ive got that out of him... he'll never learn.

The way that team played on Sunday we will be scaring teams all season and we still have a little more depth of squad than last season.

The bookies, pundits and snivelling TV presenters will be anxious to review their comments quickyl or will be laughing stocks.

I watch the game on Sky and I have to say the 1st half we struggle but the 2nd half we were magnificent we shoulda won this we were way better than Liverpool. Saturday I went to the Emirates with my son and I saw Callum Chambers and I have to say Wenger is right about him he's gonna be the next big thing for me he is man of the match what a player. He even stop and take picture with my son with his Saints shirt which was really awkward but what a top lad !

If what you say is true about Lallana is true, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is, then yes Rodgers should be reported. I also heard that he contacted Saints to wish Rickie a happy birthday in Feb. What's all that about if it's not to start unsettling a player. Unbelievable the club past on the message whereas I'd have destroyed it. Rodgers is desperately trying all sorts to succeed at Liverhampton and deserves to be cited.
Rickie himself said in an interview for the Liverpool Echo that he'd had a fax from Rodgers after his England debut last summer.

Is that a regular occurrence it may well be with players that have played for a manager but what attachment has Brenda with Lambert?

I ain't sure he would of gone for Lambert if we didn't have Lieanna and Lovren that he wanted.

The second goal was Fonte's mistake, he let the ball pass thinking that Fraser would collect it, but unfortunately fell on Daniel Sturridge's foot..
It's something he will regret.

Dusan is a Germ he linked well with Bertrand...the future is looking good....

Clyne's Goal was a beauty....he is a fearless little soldier...

the second goal was Wanyamas mistake for not heading clear
Spider had the chance to clear it too, but daydreaming.
To be fair he had run himself into the ground by then and was probably physically and mentally tired. He hadn't had the build up that the rest of the squad had been through.

Rickie himself said in an interview for the Liverpool Echo that he'd had a fax from Rodgers after his England debut last summer.
Is that a regular occurrence it may well be with players that have played for a manager but what attachment has Brenda with Lambert?

I ain't sure he would of gone for Lambert if we didn't have Lieanna and Lovren that he wanted.
I couldn't find any connection between them. I did mention this a few weeks ago when I read the interview but no one on here commented and I assumed that the club would have taken action if they'd had evidence of tapping up.

I don't doubt that this is what indeed did happen. It strikes me as being a little too coincidental that no sooner had Lambert and Lallana broke into the England team that external 'forces' started to unsettle them. All contact between a contracted player and players/officials should be disclosed or banned if possible. I hate to think what's been going on with j-rod in his recovery. Lots of companies have policies that govern this as well as misuse of social media but Premier League football is slow to catch on or most likely too frightened to rock the boat with agents and the players they represent.

On another note the fa should make it illegal for other clubs to leak **** to the press about players they want to sign from other clubs. Its rude and is blatantly tapping up another player. Brandon Rodgers brother in law must work for the mail because the ammount of publicity we got bout players leaving linked to other cluba cant be a coincidence. Did you know brandon rodgers actually text lalaland and said I cant wait to sign u for the biggest club in the world. Happy birthday. My mate text him after he told him to which he replied dont know LAD, WINK WINK. he was still a saints player it was in the middle of a season. That in my book is tapping a player up. I doubt lallana told any one at saints and he knew they wanted him. He was even texted and asked how much money he was on and rodgers text back ill give u 85 grand. Deal was as good as done. Oh how I hope and pray liveepoo the thieving scouse **** fail!!!![/p][/quote]If what you say is true about Lallana is true, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is, then yes Rodgers should be reported. I also heard that he contacted Saints to wish Rickie a happy birthday in Feb. What's all that about if it's not to start unsettling a player. Unbelievable the club past on the message whereas I'd have destroyed it. Rodgers is desperately trying all sorts to succeed at Liverhampton and deserves to be cited.[/p][/quote]My mate grew up with adam familys are friends both livd in same area in bournemouth, throop. I have never met him personally but after he got picked for engkand my mate said he changed into dome bigshot ignorant footballer from a nice lad, in january when he was linked with moves away, my friend text him asking if he were going, adams reply was no mate aint going any where. On other sites I was giving the journos **** that he wasnt going I seen a personal text blah blah blah. How wrong was I!!!!! Cant speak for rickie as I dont know him but 100 percent true I can say I seen that text from adam to my mate saying dont kniw lad, wink wink. Thats tapping up a player though I doubt the fa or any one else will believe us or care. Rodgers will fall flat on his arse this year , cant wait, us as saints fans will have the last laugh of that im convinced. No disrespect to the 3 Ls that went their putting liverpool back on top of the pile need a better calibre of player than them, thats why sanchez went to arsenal.what none of the club managers who raped us over the summer had we had suarez we would of qualified for the champions league, take that away and liverpool are just an average side with average players who have just signed average players,[/p][/quote]I don't doubt that this is what indeed did happen. It strikes me as being a little too coincidental that no sooner had Lambert and Lallana broke into the England team that external 'forces' started to unsettle them. All contact between a contracted player and players/officials should be disclosed or banned if possible. I hate to think what's been going on with j-rod in his recovery. Lots of companies have policies that govern this as well as misuse of social media but Premier League football is slow to catch on or most likely too frightened to rock the boat with agents and the players they represent.

I feel so much better after seeing that game, as I feared for us to be honest. But on a downer, it's the same old Saints in front of goal - we simply cannot afford to miss so many chances. Unfortunately, my mate who is a Hull supporter, warned me that Shane Long misses 9 out of every 10 opportunities which became very evident on Sunday! We must score goals, or we will struggle, regardless of how well we play.
Agree with you there. Great all round performance that deserved at least a point, the team seem to work well together and we're still enjoyable to watch. Well done lads.

Being a perennial happy clapper, I didn't want to post any negativity yesterday, but I do hope that we don't suffer the same problem as last season, namely not being able to put away our chances.

Many fans are crying out for us to buy a new striker - but I would question whether this would unsettle the squad (exactly what we don't want). Maybe include Gallagher until JRod is fit.

Still think brandon rodgers is an absolute tw&t, cant wait till he falls on his arse and gets sacked for being a total knob. 2 when we got promoted to the premier league adam the tit lallaland wasnt worth 2.5 mil, let alone 25 mil, rickie was probably worth 4 mil to a championship side, or reading, both these pkayers are gone, luke shaw callum chambers and lovren hadnt played for us. My point is we are a better side with out those players than the team that got promoted. We avoided rekegation. Better manager now and kinder fixtures helps. 3. When boruc, yoshida, and fox, played in the same side the 3 of them couldnt pass the ball, or clear it, 5 foot, their mistakes led to loads of goals and lost points, when holliveld was playing it was worse he would finish their mistakes of by scorinfg an own goal or two!! Or7!! Yoshida made his customary **** up, I knew we would lose when I saw him starting,. With another defensive signing were be fine. Weve needed to sign 4 defenders for 3 years now, if koeman think we dont he like those b4 him is nuts. When yoshida, fox, hover, and take your pick out of the goalies who were playing when boruc was injured the confidence of the team went, right through the side mistakes were made. Clear rhem out we can be more solid better confidence in the team. Sale yoshida and hover I think is a very giod idea. The main reason I say this as under adkins we hwd 4 points after 10 games was losing games because of mistake after mistake, still I never once thought we would be relegated cause we still scored loads of goals, when your down the bottom conceding loads and not scoring your doomed.

So your calling me a liar that rodgers didnt send that text or my mate knows adam? Ill tell you what ill do. Next time he comes round ill use his phone and get adams number off it, put it on this site so you can all ring him and tell him how you all personally feel. Watch this future space!!! Obviously it all started after they all started linking up with england, brandon rodgers had to off gotten his number from some where.............. ive moved on now. I surport a club not individuals and from first impressions I think tadics on his way to becoming an even greater player than adam any way, more end product and more imagination, hopefully his creativity can bring out the best in Ramirez, whom im expecting big things from this season he owes us a big season. Thats the great thing about us saints fans, though he has been dissapointing with some very good flashes, we havent got on is back or giving him a hard time and neverboo are own. Looking forward to the west brom match on saturday in the northam end with my 5 yr old son who loves saying red army....... missed st marys!!!
