    Can't wait to travel up to Watford next week to cheer on the boys to another victory!!!! Well done you reds!! Again as i posted earlier is anyone concerned at this stage over Billy boy not getting the expected goals???
    Not really seeing as he wasn't even on the pitch!!!!
    Oooooops meant to add for full 90 minutes!!!
    I'll be interested to hear why Billy came off on 45 mins. for me, he wasn't mixing it up at all up front, and he missed one golden opportunity. He looked pretty off form, and I wonder if he's having a rough move from Donnie. Chung on the other hand was indeed sh!t hot when he came on. His first touch was a clever flick that almost went over his head to put him in on goal -- Derby defenders looked like they'd seen a ghost! He rarely loses the ball, scrapped well tonight. I predict he'll start next match with Rickie, Billy as impact sub. Unbelievable options I the team now. Guly can't even make the bench! Want to say that puncheon was also fantastic when he came on for chaplow."

Saints destroy Derby to regain top spot

SAINTS climbed back to the top of the Championship after demolishing Derby 4-0 at St Mary’s today.

Goals from Jos Hooiveld, Aaron Martin, Adam Lallana and Tadanari Lee lifted them above West Ham, who are not in action this weekend.

Saints are now two points clear of the Hammers at the head of the table, although they have played twice more than Sam Allardyce’s side.

Nigel Adkins’ men also lead third-placed Reading by five points, with the Royals holding one game in hand on them.

And Saints received an extra boost today, as fourth-placed Cardiff slipped up 3-0 at Ipswich.
