welcome back pompey pill half full at your rabbit hutch yesterday and 7000 were oldham fans
Hello Phil, glad you could make it.
So will the guy who got sent off yesterday be paid for the rest of his 4 week contract, or is he that rare footballer at Poopey that is on a "proper" contract?
Should Utd win it is better to lose at home against one of the best teams in Europe than to Oldham, don't you think?
Oops sorry, forgot you can't think.
Sold out today Phil, bookies have utd as favs, but you never know.
Our club, our team and our supporters are not really carp are they? in comparison to other local clubs.
Enjoy the game today and don't forget your medication.
oh, and I have just notice your 12,000 attendance. Well done on "packing the park"
Very disturbing story in today's daily star.
Headline; Saint harry Rednapp!!!!!

Q. How many fans does it take Pompey [to] Phil a cow shed?
A. Well, they keep trying but haven't found out yet.
Does us a favour syphilis, go and visit Dignitas and take the other 19 skunts with you. Leave the dog behind. We might be able to retrain him.
Best of luck to all of you who's lucky enough to be seated at SM's tonight! I'll be watching on the telly, biting my nails.
Sold out you lot say , but you forget its only sold out because of all the utd fans coming down, there are not 32,500 scummers on the planet, lets see how many empty seats at kick off and then at the 75th minute when you all go home crying, then come back on here calling for adkins diets head and for cortese to sell up, and then the rest can stay and boo the team off the pitch as you always do, i suspect the other seats that were sold are all utd fans who live in your shithole of a city Come one UTD!!!!!
anyone fell sad for pompey pill
Oh dear Phil. You really are a Silly Billy!

Hi all, does anybody have info on a link for the match.
44,000 scummers at Wembley for a tin cup two years ago Phillip! That would be the tin cup you'll be playing for this season. I'll take a draw today, Manchester clubs are hard to beat, well you'd know, you lost at home to one yesterday. Groundless abuse, that's all your sh*thole club has left you with isn't? When your club does have one final spasm and dies, don't be a stranger, I love your mindless rant, hysterical.
Silly Philly (or is that Psychotic Phil) really lives in an imaginary world. I think he needs to take an antipyschotic pill or two and quick. Mind you, it is possible that he has already had a lobotomy so I am not sure they would work.
first row is good or sportlemon or like me going down the pub
Well done Phil,you got the reaction you wanted ,us giving you stick instead of talking about our premiership team.I enjoy banter but your so envious you've become as deluded as the Portsmouth Trust.Weve always been a bigger better club and you hate that.Our attendance was bigger than yours when we were L1 and you were briefly top flight.So fcuk off and stop coming on here spouting crap
Michael appleton approaced trevor birch and said can we afford rickie lambert trevor birch said yes no problem with his wages but the only problem is we cant afford all the meat pies and cookies he requires to stay fat utd utd utd
Yeah get a bloody ticket call yourself a fan
Yes, try this, Vic:
I guess, like me, you don't have Canel + over there.
I'm hoping a neighbour gets home soon so that I can take some beers to his.
Poompey Phil, Sir Phylis as he is really known, is suffering from dementia accelerated by the demise of the blue few. Feel sorry for him, pat him on the head and send him on his way. Without lots of medication, his life is going to remain miserable. They tried therapy, but found there was not much to work with. It wasn't that public school let him down, but genetics can't be remediated.
Utd is the biggest game of the season for all clubs. Don't think we are quite up to it and there are no reasonable grounds to believe otherwise. But hope springs eternal particularly as Utd are not in sparkling form themselves but just seen both Ferdinand and Vidic play so Rickie will need a lot of help.
With Spurs start to the season so far, I'm relying on Saints as a team I've always had a soft spot for to give me something to smile about.
Go on lads, stick it to Ferguson's overpaid prima donnas.
2 all after 80 minutes, with a winner for Saints in the last 10. Goals from Lallana (37), Puncheon (51) and Puncheon again (83).
There is one ugly scummer on sky with a big nose, never heard of him must have been a small time player!!!!
Ignore the fish boy, he's just desperate for attention.knob.
wheres your boy friend from warsash then .what his next log in name .spill the beans gay boy
He's posting on here & watching on Sky, no wonder he's so angry.
He is, in reality, a closet saints fan who hasn't admitted to himself and come out yet!
Thought you were sold out i can see empty seats in line with utd's defence that proves your a joke and have no support
1-0 Saints what a goal = Rickie the Goal Machine
Dont get carried away its a 90 min game
Come ooooooonnnnnn!! Had to be Ricky!!!!
Robin van persie, robin van persie, robin van persie
Pick that out!!!! SHA ALA LA LA LA We sent the scummers down!!
This is cheering me right up after yesterday. Thanks scumpton!!
Are you lot bottom of the league yet?
SHA ALA LA LA LA WHO THE **** IS SINGING NOW
Sad little boy! Did mommy not pay enough attention to you at home?
Why do people reply to Pompey phil? He'll get bored and go back to the shed if people ignore him. There's not one person in the world who would agree that Pompey are better than Saints anyway. Even he/she knows they're not. Well unless his mum had her brother and out came phill I guess. So let's all ignore it and it will go back to the shed.
Also you ever spelt Fratton park backwards nottarf krap. Oh how true!!
Cant wait to hear more moaning about Adkins on Radio Solent when you lot start leaving on 80 mins. Two months ago you lot thought the "David Brent" idiot was the best manager in the countly now you want him sacked. Hilarious!! PUP
Great pressure and competent composed passing play; good first half. No real bad points apart from Clyne's choice of spuds.
We played well. Room for improvement, but all in all, we gave as good as we got. Encouraging.
Which league are you referring to? League One? I assume you are authority on that!
Schneiderlin has been a giant in the first half! Hope they can keep up the hard work until the whistle blows.
Oh skunts, few more pointers:
1) PL football
2) Great facilities
3) Sold out crowd
4) Lucrative team
I have got loads more.....
Adkins Out!! LOL
No we are not bottom but if you loose this and villa win you will be bottom lol
I'm sure scumpton will be off the bottom soon. Away to Arsenal next week so a guaranted win. Adkins OUT!!!
2-1 SPider.... hahahha WHo Are Who Are Ya
Oh dear, those predicting a 1-3 score must be feeling nervous!!
Just delaying the inevitable. Makes it even funnier to see you all getting excited thinking you will actually hold on to it!! You'll be sneaking out on 80 mins 5-2 down!
You know what Mr Phil, take you & your sh1tty little team & p1ss off.
Man you really are a freakin retard......you sad little tw@t......p1ss off & let me get on with my drank!
Just cause you are all busy screwing your Moms & sisters like the chavy inbreds that you are.....P1ss off Dumba$$ :P
We f*cked you title up! We F*cked your title up! :-D
They are pannicking...Carpric
k & kak owa off old man scholes on and his nanny on ...
Yeah, bottom of a league two above you! We have plenty of potential. You don't even have a real team yet and room to dop even further once your 10 point deduction comes in. You are like the little dog who yaps and thinks he is bigger that he is. But, you are midly funny syphlis.
Lose not "loose". As I said earlier, you had lots of trouble in school. Still looking to shore up your self-concept, huh?
Saints forced them to make changes .. nows the time for Emmanuel to fire some Copper Bullets and put them to rest
Little dog who won the FA Cup. Didnt choke on our Championship title, FA Cup finalists, Didnt lose their Uefa cup qualifier, Drew with Inter Milan and made them bring on Ronaldino and Enzagi. Hope your next few years are as much fun!!!
Justice is done the Persil man is dirty... Kelvin you were a dope!!!!! but stil our dope.... lucky bastd COYR back at it!!!
History is all you now have. Cobwebs are beginning to grow. Perhaps you could sell all our your trophies to pay your monthly players!
Saints forced to bring on an attacking player! Love it.
It does make me laugh...my kid loves his "Match Attax" cards & he even made one for Rickie Lambert when we were in the Championship......th
ese are all "100 club" & "Shiney card" player names, lol
Bless him :)))))
Oh look fat boy lambert has gone off to run to the pie stand before they run out
Saints doing this well... COYR
thats something you will never have my stripey polish friend lol
Tactics, syphilis. You can't use those 'cause you barely field a team.m Skills you would love to have.
It is history now but a hell of a ride loved every minute!!! We acheived everything a club outside the top 4 can so that box is ticker. League 1 is another experience and im a little embarrased to say im loving it too.
3 mins to go. Still time for a Man U winner!!! and for you lot to leave and beat the traffic LOL
COYR, real shame but great perfomance, still time for saints to win!

Adkins OUT!!! LOL
Absolute robbery... Saints did us proud.. Ref was the most biased I've seen in ages.. That game was ours..
Bottom of the league and pointless.
Pointless in both senses of the word
Yeah great inspired substitutions Nigel you moron, havent you ever watched Utd play before?
LOL The "Adkins Out" has started already.
Fishy phil I'd rather lose to man utd then the mighty oldham hahahahah pompey tw@t
f/o 777 grow up ffs Saints played great be proud
Why did we take off our 3 best players?
You are bottom of the league say you are bottom of the league
Why bring of our attack that were getting the better of vidic/ferdinand, don't change when your winning until the last few minutes. C'mon Nigel think bout it.
But still great saints performance.
Oldham! Say no more!!! ;)
Wait lets poopey phil time to come up with a witty retort
I live in gosport and as a saints fan it is funny to see how many people DONT wear there poopey tops anymore oh how the mighty (lol) have fallen.
He scores when he wants, he scores when he wants , robin van persie he scores when he wants
Sorry, but that was a major **** up by Adkins, why take off our best three players and go defensive against United, a big no, no! It also reinforces my thoughts that Fonte and Fox are not goo enough at this level, especially Fonte. However, for a large part of the game I thought our lads played brilliantly. Man of the match for me was Puncheon!
Very proud, but the subs where a bit mad. Fresh legs are ok, but taking our 3 best players off maybe not the smartest. Still we've been leading both Manc. clubs 2-1 and pushed them dam close.
Well that was a fantastic game, no points but two of the hardest games gone and lost both by the odd goal! New top signings to blood yet as well. The only thng that troubles me is how to deal with Oldham??
Oh I said you should go screw your sister....hang I just screwed her myself & yo Mom (she did keep saying your name though Phil!.......Where are Pompey now?
Cue the tumble weeds :)
that was good phil haha (that sarcasm by the way) you complete and utter tw@t go and see your team of trialist lead you all the way to league 2. Have trying to win the football league trophy mate we won that sh:t aswell.
Absolutely ridiculous substitutions, cost us the match Nige.
No excuses, we were so much on top there was no need to change anything.
NC will be bloody livid and you know what that means.
I bet you wish you had a Lambert
Adkins OUT!!! The muppet has finally been found out!!
Huff and puff and all that stuff, still out of form united managed to top you.
Arsenal next week who just stuffed liverpool away 2-0. Another winless game and no pts.

Agreed.You do not sub your best players.

hope you guly supporters are happy now should of gone to forest inplace of sharpe
Yeah Adkins found out alright. MA next manager?
guly is a watse of space should never put on a southampton shirt again
drunk guly 2 man u 3
If we had played badly and lost then yes, hats off, but when you are that close to even getting a point against teams like this then it can get a bit frustrating. Again, Fox thinks he is a third centre back half the time and fonte just isn't a premiership player, he completely lost rvp for the third goal. our midfield and attack had a fantastic game, but agree with previous comments, i know we have a hard game against arsenal coming up, but taking off your best players, especially against utd, you are asking for trouble. I also don't mean to go on, but guly? FFS atkins, when will you realise he is sh!t!!!! bring on an extra defender, anyone but him. and i think shaw should get a game now at LB.
But against arsenal, our new signings will be raring to go, i am looking forward to some pacey attacking play!
Hilarious to see the filthy fishies become glory hunters now their club is irrelevant. At least supporting your local team is honorable. Find it hilarious they can mock us for 3-2 against united and city. Also, we may have no points so far in the premiership, how many have they got? Don't feel under pressure skates, I don't expect a decent comeback from you inbred's so you don't have to try.
Adkins just been interviewed. What a muppet. He is a book of cliches and makes David Brent look good.
3 points lost again guly has cost us 4 points now get shot of him
Hating us is all they have left. Give them a break!!
And so have you and your mother.
dear dear o points lmao tick tock
So many angry scummers!!! Enjoying the promised land again are you!!
Doos? Flash in the pan? Is that toilet humour or a self-fulfilling prophecy? Post your pants off boys, wouldn't swap your lot for syphilis.
I dont post much on here as I like to read your posts but here goes. My beloved Saints brought a few smiles to my face today, for me Puncheon tore Man Ure apart and was Saints man of the match. I would NEVER call for the legend Adkins to get the boot but he got the tactics wrong taking our best 3 performers off of the pitch today. I believe in Nigel to learn from this because I dont believe he is a stubborn man and that he wants to be a better manager. In Nigel we truest!!! Big up to the rest of the true saints fans. Seedhouse,Slugger and the rest of the red and white pin stripes.Oh and foadp. Nice result in your asbestos ridden stadia against Oldham
I was proud of Saints today and guuted for them. To go down twice 3-2 after leading the two best teams in the leaque was annoying to me so god only knows what the professionals involved at the club feel.
I thought NA did well - far better than I could have under the circumstances.
The concern remains a defence which gives it all but just cannot last 90 minutes. Our best players are substituted because we have no defenders to come on.
Don't know why you all even bother with those scum boys. They're just really pathetic ... Anyways, sickening result after all that hard work. But it seems quite obvious our defense isn't good enough. Fonte was really poor and so was Kelvin at times, although he saved that sloppy penalty. Clyne, Hooiveld and Fox did OK I think. Schneiderlin was my man of the match, by the way. Can't understand all the stick he's gotten if this is how he usually play. 3 points at Highbury then? COYR!
Very disappointing. Will read with interest the comments of those who were there. Have a nasty feeling the substitutions will give rise to criticism (not for the first time) and also how the defence performed,this being the subject of concern over the past couple of weeks.
We do not seem to learn a game lasts 90+ minutes. If my memory serves me correctly we seem to regularly ship late goals that prove costly and Man Utd are past masters at scoring late goals. With Arsenal finding their scoring touch after the next game we could be playing catch-up after just 4 games. It has to be said this was predicted by many pundits. We may be glad of the International break to allow time for the new boys to settle in. The next 2 home games - Villa & Fulham - have become must win games.
Apologies for the pessimism but I suspect most fans were expecting at least 3 points from the Wigan game. To have none and having conceded more goals than QPR and having lead both Man. City & Man. Utd only to lose shows a frialty that must be addressed.
I await comments re the above with interest.
Man utd didnt win the game saints lost it....this is more about tactics than playing on th pitch.....
the only ones calling for adkins to be sacked is your mob you idiot!
this i can only assume is because you want to get him down the shed to replace lord voldemort! as you have noticed that he is absolute carp!
oh by the way we may have no points but that is still 8 more than your shower of sh1te! i know the league have been nice to you again and said you wont get that until you come out of admin but even your lot cant stay in admin all season! or is that the new cheat? stay in admin all season then when you are relegated it will be because you lost so many games!
how was the game with oldham yesterday? or were you not there, not many were! 20k more at st marys today, that must be embarrassing for you!!!!!!
who is this lad ward-prowse is he on a monthly contract is he on loan to us or did we buy him NO.
( now for the bit's that your average skunt will not understand he is a product of S.F.C. ACADEMY.)
also have a little compassion for the SKUNTS because it's the only chance they will ever have to type into their computors the current members of the premier league.
oldham, bournemouth crawley and the like just don't have the same appeal
PROUD OF AND TO BE A SAINT
can we loan guly to pompey on a free
We lost, but i loved it.
Why? Because We are in the Premier League.
Not bothered about what we've won or Pompey have won in the past.
It's the 2012-13 season. Southampton are here, NOW, in the Premier League, playing good football, and I'm confident results will come.
It's the 2012-13 season. Pompey are STILL ****, still in trouble, and look like they are gonna be screwed some more.
So all you pompey scum on here taking the **** i say to you this...
Bring it on. We love it. And we know its just because you are jealous. We love that too.
Just F@*# off you boring turd!

Not angry, proud to support the number one side in Hampshire. How are Pompey doing this season? I have no idea as i can't be arsed to stay up until the early hours of the morning to watch them on the football league show, and the papers don't give the Mickey mouse league much coverage either. Who did you draw in the Paint pot trophy too?
up saints wrote…
I meant the f***ing taxi fare!!
Now a more considered response.
1. Proud, very proud.
I was surprised by the starting line up (again) and (again) Nigel got it right.
2. My Man of the match was Spiderman (edged out Punch, because he scored).
3. Having praised Nigel, I must say, I totally agree with those questioning the subs. I was a bit surprised with the bench, to be honest. So many attacking options and no Luke Shaw!
But, I was sure Tad Lee would be the first on and Mayuka (being so new) wouldn't be risked. Re: Guly, I even said to my neighbour he wouldn't get on today because we needed players with pace and endless energy and that wasn't what he offered.
In saying all that, the problems remain at the back. Clyne aside (who had the wrong boots on), I thought they all coped well, given that it wss Manure. However, we gifted 3 poor goals - at any level. From the corner which led to the last goal, why did JWP have to mark two players at such a crucial moment, allowing RVP so much free space?
BUT, going back to my first point, any criticism of Nigel comes on the back of getting the starting line up right and, had we won (or drawn) we wouldn't be spending too long this PM questioning the subs.
Harsh lessons are being learnt and there are a lot of positives to take into the break.
Yep and you got that by cheating. Pure and simple and in the end life catches up with you. I never used to hate pompey but because you cheated i really pray that your team goes out of existence. You have no sense. Many years in the premiership and you have nothing to show for it. Nothing, part from some fading memories that were gained by cheating.
Your city doesnt deserve a team. Its a cr*p hole and i really do hope you go like rangers, except you wont come back. God i so hope so.
And if we do go down, which we might, the foundation is there for years. Smart, cleaver, honest people not chaeting bigoted thick people who live 20 miles away
you may think it;s boring but if we go back down by less than 3 points i blame the first two matches guly played and him coming on a sub.but adkins made the subs so part to blame.if anyone can think it;s good to take off the three best players and bring on who we did it is barmy we were not 6-1 up
What a great game, we played a blinding game, yeah we lost but we played brilliantly against one of the best teams in the world!!!! Ignore Pompey Syphilis and the other deranged loons that are jumping on the band wagon, if they had anything interesting to talk with their own team about they wouldn't be on here crying about their superior neighbours! We are the pride of the south coast!!!
Strasbourg Saint wrote…
I'm balanced in my assessment and can see what he offers. As you will see from my other post, I didn't agree with him coming off the bench at that point today.
What I don't do is attack Saints players unless they disrespect the shirt. (Or go on and on about it like you.) I support my team and that means the whole team.
Is there anything more fundamentally pathetic than a passionate football fan trying to troll the boards of a rival team? Especially when that team has just given a magnificent account of itself against the two finest sides in England? I will leave that for the Pompey few to mull over in their spare time.
On todays game, I think we were excellent apart from a few niggling traits that we need to shake off. We need to work on giving this kind of display against teams that will be in and around us; Fulham, Aston Villa and Stoke are all coming up relatively soon, and a couple of wins there (with todays mentality) will soon see us marching on. Ward-Prowse looks to be one heck of a prospect and I'm sure that we'll kick on after getting that first, imminent, victory out of the way. COYR.
this is a learning process, we played better today, we looked like a premier team and at times were in control.
maybe N.A. got it wrong, we do not know what he was thinking, if he feels he made a mistake then get over it and move on.
this league should hold no fear for us we have played the top 2 from last season and were not humiliated we were mugged by wigan and no doubt we will lose some more,
but we were fcuking good at times
and it will come good COYR
Correct me if Im wrong ,but you seem to be one of those posters waiting in the wings for saints to fail ,so you can proudly declare "I was right". !!!
You refer to ,"pundits predictions" as if in some sadistic way to try and reinforce your own doubts.
Nigel Adkins, yes he is a newbie,who needs to get with the program ASAP, in my opinion,he slipped up today ,his best side on the day was on the pitch,but just pause for a minute,what if we had ramirez available ? OK we didnt,but we will have,cut the guy a bit of slack-please.
As regards the next two games being "must win",change that mindset to "will win".
Yep I was hoping for points against Wigan,but lets be honest to get Man C,Man U and Arsenal in the first 4 games back to the prem-we,ll be Ok,give the boys a chance,they wont let you down.
But will you let them down John ?
Never really slagged off saints players but I am tending to agree with the anti-guly brigade.
He is not up to this league and If many fans can see this then why cant NA.

Just the fact that you want to blame Guly for the three defeats shows me all I need to know about your total lack of football knowledge and vindictive nature.
You're entitled to your point of view, just STOP labouring it and try to suggest something more constructive for a change.

Your comments about the defence are a bit muddled, coped well but gifted 3 poor goals. Wasn't too concerned about a new left back but can see why some dont like fox.

That's quite funny PiS, but still rather be a saint than a skate.
Oh dear is that the best you can do? Your jokes are as bad as your club
The question - which has so far been answered by a big no - is can Saints play like they did today against lesser teams? How do we score 2 aginst City and Utd and nil against Wigan?
up saints: Do you have anything to say OTHER than that the loss was due to Guly? Think it over. Really? There were NO other contributory factors at all? You're seriously blaming the entire loss on one man? No-one else at all played any part in the last two goals? I just want to be clear that that's what you're saying.
If you think it through, you might just be able to see a hole in your logic and get some perspective.
Surprised pompey phil's not supporting man city, like all the rest of their fair-weather supporters.
Blaming Guly for all three defeats is ridiculous. Considering how certain sections of the fans have treated him and Puncheon in the past it is seems a bit on the racist side. Our White players do not get panned with the same vitriol when they screw up. Guly's contributions are either ignored or quickly forgotten. When facts have been given illustrating his contribution they have been dismissed as irrelevant. It is disturbing how some seem to revel in self importance and assume we all moan or chuckle along when they get on their high horse and start the same old Guly bashing mantra. I hope more of the same
is not in store for Clyne and Mayuga. If we give them the same sh@t we should hang our heads in shame.
Lots of posturing on here, let's leave it to the facts.

WE F***ING OWN YOU AND YOU KNOW IT!! COYR's
i support saints i admit from my armchair now ,but my point is lambo punch and llalana gave 100% why bring on guly when tandaria lee is on the bench or sharpe is at notts forest.once guly arrived in my opinion is was 10 v12 and game over.guly was good the start of last season in my opinion he can be good on the ball at times but runs around in circles and beats the same player twice.
Gutted of course, but I never expected us to play so well for such long periods, we had one of the best teams in the World on the ropes for a while and only the lack of luck and some weak finishing, followed by a dodgy subs choice, and a World Class Striker who virtually did for us on his own cost us the game. What was Wenger thinking when he let him go?
TYPE IN CAPITALS, IF YOU'RE PREMIER LEAGUE...TYPE IN CAPITALS IF YOU'RE PREMIER LEAGUE
Top game , but the premiership is harsh at times and we will have to learn quickly how to shut games outvwhen we are in the lead . Not too disheartened though played some great football and I for one could see what NA was doing with the substitutes , wanted fresh legs on the pitch as man u had freshened things up , it's hard work up front on your own and rickie had worked hard , spiderman was awesome today , maybe should of strengthened the middle of the park instead of going like for that but NA is learning about the premiership too as well as the players.
Let's get rid of this ricdiculous rumour that his job is under pressure and redknapp is coming , NC he got us in a mess and then went back to the skates enough said we don't want him again !
In a way the game today was the opposite of the city game at least with regard to substitutions etc. One fact that is hard to ignore is that the same back four has shipped 8 goals in three games. Saints were one of the leading scorers in the Championship and it appears that we can cause teams problems in the PL (Wigan accepted). We have added some exciting new players in the transfer window. Hopefully our defensive record will improve – Clyne looks like a class act - I am hoping that our new Japanese centre back will make a difference and maybe Luke Shaw will step up.
For a lot of the squad and the management it is a steep learning curve. As a manager substitutions can make you look great or sometimes a muppet – the reality is that you need good enough players on the field who can hold onto the ball (preferably by generating a goal threat) and see out the game. Unfortunately, in both today’s game and the city game at 2-1 I did not feel that was going to happen. Oh well on to Arsenal for what I suspect will be another severe test although at least their strikers are not in the class of RVP. Looking forward to seeing our new Uruguayan!

i didnt say he was right to take all 3 off at all, i said i dont think guly should have come on! and tad lee should!. but as for blaming guly for the first three games then your hatred of one of our players is truley truley amazing! what the hell did guly do wrong (i dont think he played great) for you to blame him in the city game? the whole team were poor vs wigan and guly played little part in any of their goals today! you really do need to get past this hatred and yes it does seem to be hatred of guly and remember that he is a saints player! how would you feel if he scored the winner today? you would still moan about him wouldnt you! i knew as soon as he came on that if we drew or lost then some would blame him for it! oh and whats boring is the fact that if anything goes wrong anywhere on the pitch people like you blame guly! i`m suprised you havent blamed him for clyne picking the wrong boots yet! what about their 2nd goal? that came from our left guly wasnt on that side, his fault? did guly give the pen away?
i am not guly`s biggest fan btw it just gets on my nerves when people blame him and pick him out for special treatment.
1976? You illiterate idiot.
Just got back from the game , we played well against one of the giants of European football and yes maybe NA did make a mistake taking our three most dangerous players off but let's cut out the negativity and KEEP THE FAITH ! And as for the inbred fish f++kers on here trying to goad you all just ignore them , soon they will turn there attention to Eastleigh fc as that will be the only local Derby they will play . Coyr !
Played well against Oldham though didn't you? 0 1 01 01 01 01 01 Any one can post cr*p like yours.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing! No one knows what would of happened had AL,JP and RL stayed on.
I would be be more inclined to blame the players that came on rather than Adkins, did they have the impact they should of? No!
Still very proud of the way we played for 80 mins and I believe once we get those first 3 points and close a game out we will be flying. Morgan and the front 3 were awesome and once again we have proved we can compete with the best in this league! Onwards and upwards I say.
I'm also quite glad the skanks from down the road come on here, your a joke and you know it some keep it coming boys!
Interesting that the comments about the substitutions come (in the main) from people I've never once seen post on this site.
A few from people I've seen before, but the minority.
Lambert himself has said that after 70 mins or so he's absolutely knackered these days (he is 30, remember). I'm prepared to bet that all the work with the GPS tracking over the close season backed that up, which is why they aren't playing him for 90 mins. Wenger used to get stick for not playing Bergkamp for full games until he showed Bergkamp the stats that showed he slowed down in the last 20 mins of every game. I'm sure something similar's happening with SRL.
Give NA some credit for knowing a little bit about what he's doing.
I do wonder whether you'd all be complaining about them if we'd held on.

You should really speak to a physiatrist, i am sure that you have a screw loose
I've no idea what that means, please can you repeat it in English?
HAVE WE BEEN RELEGATED STRASSIE?? YOU KNOWTHE RULES,
I agree with all of the positive comments. Saints were awesome going forward today. Punch was superb as was Ricky and Lallana. Morgan was superb as was the up and coming Ward Prowse. However Fox had a shocker and so did Jose. Looking forward to the Arsenal game when hopefully we will have Gaston and Yoshi in the team. Be positive guys. The cream always rises to the top. COYR
WE HAVE BOTH WON IT ONCE, SAINTS MORE RECENTLY IN 1976. PORTSMOUTH WERE CHARGED AND CONVICTED OF STEALING THE FA CUP IN 2008. A LESSER CHARGE OF RAPING AND PILLAGING FOOTBALL WAS ALSO UPHELD. YOU HAVE A VERY PROUD HISTORY.
We all knew we wouldn't win the title right... So like every single southampton FC season i can remember since the the late 80s I will only be concerned/optimistic come Christmas...........

OH! OKAY! IF YOU INSIST!
BEFORE I TAKE A BREAK, A COUPLE OF POSITIVES.
1. REMEMBER THE LAST TIME WE PLAYED MANURE IN THE PREM? WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? 4 YEARS IN THE MIRE. TIMES HAVE CHANGED, JUST ASK PHYLIS AND HER MATES.
2. NOW WHAT WAS THE OTHER POSITIVE? UM, WHAT WAS IT? IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH, UM, PHYLIS AND HER MATES?
......... OH YES! 7 YEARS OF SAINTS BEING AWAY FROM THE BIG TIME? IT'LL BE A HELL OF A LOT LONGER BEFORE THE SKUNTS ARE BACK IN THE BIG TIME - IF EVER!!!!
Saints played brilliantly. The starting 11 were excellent. Yes there were mistakes but they will be working on putting that right I'm sure. The end result though is really hard to take after that performance, especially conceding so close to Full Time aswell.
I'm sorry to say but I thought the sub changes made led to the end result. Really thought Lee would be brought on. Also at that stage of such an important fixture (I know every fixture is important though) I was hoping that Mayuka wouldn't be risked as not having much training time as yet. And Guly. I know we'd be running out of subs on the bench but deep down I was really hoping Guly wouldn't be used at that stage either. I had a sick feeling in my stomach when he came on that this wouldn't end well.
(Now here's my big) BUT.
In Saints we have a team who will be feared in the Premier League. They should take great pride from their performance today. I feel proud to be one of their supporters. In Nigel Adkins we have a great Manager. He will know what went right today and where things went wrong. And if mistakes were made you can be sure they won't be made again. I just pray that Nicola still believes that in Nigel we have the best man for the job and that he doesn't make any rash decisions. This is a work in progress and at the moment it's progressing well and will only improve. Together as one. Bring on the Gooners.

I MEANT TO QUOTE YOU BUT FORGOT. WHEN YOU'RE PREMIER LEAGUE YOU FORGET STUFF
You can't even beat Oldham, you Idiot! lmfao
JUST LIKE A SKATE TO STEP OUT ON HIS SISTER.
So...again we walk away from a massive game with our heads held high..but sadly none of the points we deserved.
For me, Lambert was a class above today...he gave Ferdinand a torrid time and "out bullied" Vidic's attempted bully-boy tactics. Easy to say now, but I think taking him and Puncheon off changed the game (Adam looked out on his feet imo....he'd given all).
All in all...we deserved more from the game, but United in the last 10 mins of any game are a machine.
If we can only put this level of effort in for the lessor games (and benefit from the newbies), I'm quite sure we'll be more than safe this season.
come on guys lets forget the fact we lost to man u pompey have a big game this tuesday and guess what its on sky i know its hard to believe but its true if everyone tunes in we will get to see that big team from down the road you know the fa cup winners uefa cup qualifers (that are now in the bottom 4 of league 1) concede another goal to a guy called lee barnard i swear i have heard of that guy before pi$$ off you dirty skunts history is history what people care about is now bottom of the league yes but still higher than you lot so enjoy bournemuff skunts 0 bournemuff 3 enjoy
Can someone please remind me what 2 - 10 = ?
MY GIRLFRIEND WHO IS SOUTH AFRICAN AND NOT MY SISTER WAS ENGROSSED IN THE GAME. THOUGH NOT A FOOTBALL FAN OR MY SISTER SHE FOUND IT VERY EXCITING. WE WILL ENTERTAIN AND JUST GET BETTER AS THE SEASON GOES ON. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO CLARIFY THAT MY GIRLFRIEND IS NOT MY SISTER.
still less than we have dirty skunts
I DO HAVE A SISTER BUT SHE IS NOT MY GIRLFRIEND.

Absolutely PATHETIC!!! Now being able to see that Guly is not premier league quality, and is the only person who pulls on a Saints shirt and does not give 100% is racist? WTF!! It is time all you Guly lovers that post on here (never met one in the flesh) accept that the great majority of REAL Saints fans do not appreciate the contribution (if you can call it that) that he makes to the team and NA needs to stick to the team who play with passion, i.e. every other player in the current squad
Saints should immediately revert back to their traditional kit of red and white striped shirts and black shorts,which is "The Saints", known throughout the Country, the kit graced by the likes of Paine, Channon, Le Tiss, Ball, Keegan, etc. and condemn the character less new kit to the dustbin.
They won't win a game wearing the Liverpool look-a-like rubbish, adopted just to make money out of the fans.
Bell end. Think before you drink before you post.

Better watch out NA, played three lost three, eight goals conceded, nil points, rock bottom!!!!!!
Understandable perhaps against Man C and Man U, but Wigan at home?? AP had a much better record when he was bombed out.
Get back to the red and white stripes before it's too late for you and the team!!!!
Fair play, credit where credit is due. There are many positives that you can take from today's game.
1. The crowd. As the game was oh so totally utterly sold out to capacity, just 1000 empty seats is a very good performance.
2. The crowd. Most of them stayed until the 89th minute this time!! Good, they are learning.
3. The substitutions. Pure genius from Twadkins. A winning position against the champions-elect, turned into a loss within a few minutes. Arry will not make mistakes like that when he is manager next week.
4. The League position. Only 1 point behind Liverpool after 3 games. You'd certainly have taken that 2 weeks ago if it had been offered to you.
heineken probably the best beer in the world
southampton probably the worst premier team in the world
Oh, in case you haven't noticed:
Why did he take off the front three? they were giving United all sorts of problems.
I wrote before & said we needed to strengthen our defence & was told I didn't know what I was talking about so why wasn't there no one marking Van Persie I saw a defender make a late attempt but it was only half hearted.
it's okay spending money on the front & midfield but we need to replace Fontaine quickly.
we had this game won our front three had Man U at sixes & sevens he took them off for faster players to break out of defence? surely having the ball up there end was the best form of defence?

DERBY COUNTY FANS ARE TAKING GREAT INTEREST IN SAINTS RESULTS WHY ?
Derby were officially relegated on 29 March after their 2–2 home draw with fellow strugglers Fulham and Birmingham City's 3–1 victory over Manchester City left them 19 points away from safety with only 6 games left. This made Derby the first club in Premiership history to be relegated in March and only the second in post-war English Football league history. They also accumulated the league's lowest points total since the introduction of 3 points for a win with just 11 points, as well as the record for the fewest wins in a Premier League season with just 1 victory in 38 games
Its amazing how a little pressure and people start moaning, what do people think that we were gonna walk into the premier league and win all the time?. We are Playing with a team that is made up from the Championship, yet it shows we can go up against the 2 best clubs in the world and get a positive out of it. Wigan i thought we would lose, mainly because we played like mad at City so fitness was an issue. But i am Positive now that these games are done, New Experienced Defender coming in to sure up our Defence, New World Class Attacking Midfielder to Add pace and give Service, Then a new Pacey Forward. Hell Arsenal gonna be a walk in the park compared to the last 3 games we have just had!!!
Fontaine???? You don't know what you're talking about!!! :O)
Their coming for you, their coming for you...the mighty Crawley are coming for you! :O)
Sorry typed in the wrong name I meant Fonte
A lot of my fellow Saints fans posting on here make me ashamed to be classed in the same bracket with you. Your narrow vision and selective viewing from today's game is appalling.
We played a blinder today and every one of our players gave his all, each one making a number of telling contributions throughout the game.
It was a case of fine margins for how we lost today and it wasn't the fault of any of the subs or any of our players in particular and it was certainly nothing to do with our manager's decision making.
We were on the back foot before the subs were made for reasons that are more than things within Saints control. Ferguson knows a few things about winning games too, or do all the know alls on here think his team didn't come into the equation?
It might be easier to try and pin the blame on a specific player or on a specific decision, but it isn't like that and that is why I am eternally grateful that Adkins is our manager rather than any of you posters on here.
Adkins was imploring the team to push out towards the end, before the substitutions, and not get pegged into their area but they couldn't do it. He had to change something and freshen up the attack. Sadly, it wasn't quite enough, but we will learn from it and we will get better at dominating the best teams in the land, which we demonstrated we can do today.
The fans of the most successful clubs get behind their team no matter what. Perhaps if more Saints fans could get some perspective and not want to throw the baby out with the bath water just because we tired and made a few mistakes in the closing stages of the game, there is a chance that we could join that elite. I bet if Man Utd had lost today, their fans wouldn't have gone straight on to the fan sites berating Ferguson and his team, because they know one blip does not make a season.
It takes more than a good team, a good manager and a good chairman to be successful. It takes committed supportive fans to make it work. So perhaps you could all try and remember that next time things don't go our way or you don't agree with a decision or an action. Reserve your judgement until the end of the season and until then, zip it, find the positives and get behind the team.
Remember In Adkins we Trust? I do and if you don't, go and watch the Skates instead, it would do us all a favour.
Cheers Alfie, nice to see a fellow supporter on here of another team who has some sense! Think we need to learn from these first three games, or shoulld I say Nigel needs to learn pretty quickly. Good luck to to the seagulls for the season.
Could not agree More, everyone thinks there Better than Sir Alex when it comes to Games like this. Yet there not the ones in the managers seat, who have all the facts.
so `the great majority`? have you done a head count? or is it just you and a couple of your mates who sit and moan and moan about him even before he has come on? i am obviously not a real fan and have not gone to games, sung my throat sore and brought the shirts for over 30 years! because i wont complain like a b1tch about a saints player? i take it from the remark about not giving 100% you are able to get all of the heart rate monitor and gps statistics that the managment use then? no? just guessing? dont make up statistics that you cant back up, we leave that stuff to the fish f3ckers.
oh and just because i dont sla9 off guly after every game dont make me a guly lover! it just means that i get behind the team (all of them). i do not belive that you have never met a person who likes guly! i just think that maybe they cant be bothered to argue with you because `you are never ever wrong and you have the great majority of real fans on your side!` your comment about him being the only player who doesn`t play with passion just shows you for what you are! you are so blinded by your hate for guly that you cant see what he can do! i will take nigels and the coaching teams opinion over yours any day.
and i will repeat i am not gulys biggest fan and i would not have picked him today!
i dont agree with the racism call either btw that sort of comment should not be made and saintmicky should retract it and apologize! comments like that do more harm than good.
StHuey. I was very proud of our team today, bit like when we played City. However from going from great in the first half of the Wigan game to poor in the second half, we do need to be realistic and I think Cortese wont fancy us bouncing straight back to the championship next season. We need to finish off teams when we are in the lead, no matter who they are, unfortunately a couple of players have recently been consistent in mistakes that have cost us points, Nigel as our manager, no ,matter how great he is, will I'm sure take his share of blame. But we now have the backing, facilities and potential to do a lot more in this league than we have done in the last three games and I am certain that we will. Personally just venting my frustration that we threw another win away to another top two team in the premiership and I just believe that we can do a lot more than the odds on who drops out of the premierleague this season show! COYR's!!
couldn't agree more sthuey ......... thing is that the majority of the neg heads on here don't actually attend ....... the vast majority of us that were there were gutted but still applauded our team off the pitch ........... gutted but proud !
Once again I thought we were fantastic and deserved something from the game. I too thought the substitutions cost us the game, and can't understand why Chaplow wasn't on the bench. Would have much rather seen him on than Guly, but there you go.
Thought Lallana, Rickie and Puncheon were class today, JWP has come of age and S Davis was solid. My biggest concern is Fonte - he was beaten to the ball for the 3rd and doesn't seem to have the confidence. Kelvin makes me nervous too, but what can you say about a keeper that's saved 2 penalties already.
I'm not concerned about 0 points yet - today showed we can compete in this division. I can't wait to see Ramirez and Yoshida in the team. I think (hope) the performance against Wigan is the exception and not the norm.

sorry saintmicky now ive made a mistake aswell as guly quick boo me and say i dont give 100%
i of course meant Thornhill Saint should apologize for the racism comment!
I have done a 400 mile round trip today to watch saints play for the first time, and it was out of this world. Thought we were excellent. Then i come on to read the comments and there is nothing but moaning and slagging off.
Terrific game if a gut wrenching end. Ward-Prowse and Morgan our top two for me, although I thought only Fox was poor – haven’t seen the TV coverage yet so don’t know what role Fonte played in their last two goals.
Scholes made the difference for them when he came on – wonder if we should have man marked him. Was surprised we had no midfielders on the bench – would have been handy for exactly that role.
Nonsense to think that you can leave the same 11 on the field in the Premiership but I didn’t get putting Rodriguez out wide and Mayuka through the middle – surely it should have been the other way round if that is who he wanted to put on. Nothing wrong with Gully for Puncheon either if the latter was knackered but, again, where was the midfielder on the bench if the intention was to go more defensive.
But no complaints, we played well and could have gone on and won if we took some of the chances at 2-1. But we didn’t and they had Van Persie – what a player he is.
Overall I am encouraged that we can compete at this level and Ward-Prowse was a revelation – the complete midfield player at such an early age.
Fascinating that 7 of those who played today were playing for us in the third tier 2 years ago. Pardew and Adkins have done very well to buy and/or bring on these players.
Hmmmm, "fa cup winners what have you one". One!!!! One!!!!! Im losing the will to live here.
Do you mean Won? I know they sound the same and it must be hard for you that actually words that sound the same may not be spelt the same.

guly has been found guilty of starting world war 1, world war 2 and the great fire of london!
the great majority of real saints fans now expect nigel adkins to send guly to notts forest and bring billy back.
I was there and loved the game but when punch and adam went off I said straight away not sure about this?? I have never slagged Nigel before he is a great manager but I AM allowed to comment if i disagree it is a free country isnt it? and if any **** says i should support the skunts for voicing an opinion look out
thing is that we all make our own minds up , i say again that in my experience the vast majority of fans that were actually there were gutted but proud ........... fair play for the 400 mile round trip ...... bet you do it again !
I can't see you getting out of the bottom 3. It's all good looking half sensible moving forward, but if you can't defend........ 8 goals in 3 matches, 2 of which were home games. No points, it's not good enough. Fair enough you've played City and Utd but you can't defend. Back to the Championship with QPhaha and Norwich.
Totally tired now, but would not have missed it for the world!! Gonna try for a few more Sunday Games from now on.
