    Gonna have to press Wigan and commit forward, we can not play their game and out-defend them. Lets hope MP has done his homework... 3 goals please saints... they can always score 2 out of nothing it sems...

    Same team line up today as against Man Utd except Shaw in for Fox. One change I understand on the bench - JWP on the bench not sure who's dropped I think possibly Chaplow. Hope JWP gets on today. Prediction - Wigan 1 Saints 4

    Come on S.Soul, come clean, what IS your interest in or relationship with JWP? You hardly ever post without telling us about your affection for him.

    I'd agree with the 4-1, though. A goalfest has been coming and looking at Wigan's injury list, this could just be the day.

    Just watched Wigan run Stoke ragged, at least in the second half of their game last week. This wont be easy they look very strong going forward. Should be a good game though. We can win this but only if we come near to playing like we did against Man U, and for ninety minutes.

    Strasbourg I've been involved in football including youth football for many years. I saw JWP when he played league football at the age of 6. This boy had something about him. He was totally different from the other 19 out players. He showed a tremendous understanding and 'football brain' even at tha t age. It was obvious to me he had a future in the game. Over the years through my involvement in youth football I have seen this young man progress to the great player he is today.

    He has had tremendous comments from the likes of Stuart Pearce, Roy Hodgson, Gary Neville, Jamie Redknapp, & Niall Quinn.

    I genuine believe that had he been played more this season by Adkins like his contemporary Luke Shaw (another fantastic talent) he, like Luke would be with the under 21 England squad rather than the under 19s. I'm frustrated that he appears to be being held back. Hopefully today he can get back into the team and progress under MP.

    I would wager that in time JWP will captain not only Southampton motion but England.

    That's it Strasbourg. Nothing else. It's rare you see such talent and when it comes along you have to appreciate and enjoy it!!!!

    Same with Forren maybe short of match fitness.
    Football link for Saints game lemon football it cuts off every now and then and you need to refresh. But you don't get lots of pop ups. Just watched the last bit of qpr on it they missed a penalty.

    Was wondering the same, Norgie. Very frustrating half. We're so much better until the box, but, to be honest, the better chances have been carved out by Wigan on the break.

    Like the half time song, 'Let's hang on to what we've got' Stringing 6 across the back from kick off suggests that's the height of their ambitions.

    How are we losing this?
    Was wondering the same, Norgie. Very frustrating half. We're so much better until the box, but, to be honest, the better chances have been carved out by Wigan on the break.

    Like the half time song, 'Let's hang on to what we've got' Stringing 6 across the back from kick off suggests that's the height of their ambitions.

    MACK, THAT'S HOW TO SCORE FROM CORNERS, INNIT?

    Agree, when we were 1-0 down, even though we had all the possession and were dominating, we just didn't look like scoring. It was important not to lose today though and we've maintained our 3 point gap over the bottom three, and still have a superior goal difference which could be vital come the end of the season.

    The new mans record does not look too encouraging either with only two points from a possible nine gathered to date.

    A very quick improvement is now required to justify all of the hype or a certain chairman is going to have a lot of egg on his face come seasons end!

    not happy it was always a very big risk sacking adkins that far into the season. another massive error was not signing another defender in the window, and now it appears we have signed a defender for 4m who clearly isnt fit. some one some where in the club needs to go on a decision making course cause at the moment their not great

    More points dropped from a winning position. Is that now 24 points lost? What is beginning to worry me is Saints are playing well but not winning. The great number of shots in the last two games for just 3 goals is cause for concern. Getting the feeling the Gods are not with us. Just 2 points from 9 when they they should have had possibly 7. Surely one day Saints are going to batter someone. Let's hope it is Man City!!
    Agree, when we were 1-0 down, even though we had all the possession and were dominating, we just didn't look like scoring. It was important not to lose today though and we've maintained our 3 point gap over the bottom three, and still have a superior goal difference which could be vital come the end of the season.

    If we "didn't look like scoring" how come we did?

    I thought we looked so much like scoring that I put my money on it. I backed us to win when we were 1-0 down. I was watching the same game and it looked impossible for us NOT to score.

    However, remember two of the previous three games were away to Chelsea and MU! Next we've got Man City - don't expect too much there either! I think we should have sewn it up against Wigan, but let's not be too hasty to judge MP yet. He's had a baptism of fire with the opposing teams so far!

    agree wholeheartedly my friend if mopo dont sort his goalscoring and more importantly that ramshackles of a defence then we could well be in the mire

    agreed... with no fresh options appearing in the window, we have to use what we have and that won't be good enough on MP current form...BUT if you look at our run-in then its clear what he has to achieve. Can He do it ? not sure, could Nigel have ? YES in my opinion. Lets hope NC does not regret what would be seek as simple sabotage of our Premier League status.... 2-from-9 has to change soon because you have to look at who is likely to drop.

    Disappointed at dropping 2 points,did not make the most of our chances and

    positive note the team do seem to be playing with more overall confidence.
    MP must be given time to impose
    his style of play and from what we have seen so far I think we can stay up.
    Forren will soon be in the team and
    Fonte back to fitness in the not too distant future.
    I have been very frustated at times this season but do believe we are now turning the corner.Just take those chances that we are now creating and
    improve our defense,which I am sure
    Mopo will sort out, and we should

    Real fight from the team and to my mind we're too good to go down.

    Although the defense is cause for concern!

    I felt we were a few minutes from another season in the top flight.... A big statement but it just feels tough.

    My man of the match...
    Spider, for fantastic effort and a goal 9/10
    Others...
    Lambert ran his socks off. 8
    Boruc looking better with each game. 7
    Maya... His worse game in weeks. 5
    Clyne injured? 7
    Hoover was ok. 7
    Shaw was great. 8
    Puncheon maybe needed a poo? 7
    Cork hard work again. 8
    J-Rod a vast improvement. 8
    Gaston, really £12M?! 6
    JWP looked good. 7
    Lallana two bad misses but class. 7
    Davis solid. 7

    We just have to start winning games with this great play.
    That's a very informative and helpful post thank you!

    Your welcome.

    Any chance of having some posters on here that know a little more than total b0ll1cks about football? Why are people moaning about the last 3 results with the football that we're playing? We've got to do this, we've got to do that, we'll be relegated, we don't score enough, we concede to many. We have to give the team a chance to gel together, find there best shape, form is good, Everton are no mugs, and to play Man U off the pitch AT Old Trafford, well Citeh would be proud to do that!, ok we wanted 3 points today, but we don't have any more right to win than Wigan, we have to earn that right, and we very nearly did! A good performance next week, even if we loose, which I don't think we will, and a positive result at Newcastle is all we can look to now, so come on "lets be havin ya"!

    Fair enough NS, but its not like we are playing badly and getting hammered is it, I mean what do people expect ffs, people with no or very little knowledge of football talk b0ll1cks and think we should win every game 3-0, lets be realistic and remember where we've come from in the last 36 months :)

    Can I ask why we have suddenly taken players off the posts for corners , they could of helped today ? Played well today , need to turn our dominance into goals , somebody is going to get a pasting soon , readings luck will run out soon , got some big games coming up , am confident we have improved greatly since first 10 games , been best team in last 3 games but need some more luck and more solid defending
    We had shaw on that post

    Not for first goal unfortunately and if we are going to push up from corners you have still got to pick up as you do squeeze out , not being negative thought we played well but think someone on near post might have cleared the headers

    Both centre halves miss a defensive header for a goal, not a good day at the office. Shaw great game until he leaves his post where the goal is scored.

    Don't agree - he should have left the post quicker and followed the rest of the defence out, leaving Malloney well offside.

    Only we can shoot ourselves in the foot time after time.24 points dropped from winning positions this season already!

    Partiularly disappointing after Mr Adkins had finally appeared to have got this aspect of our game under control only to be then sacked!

    The new mans record does not look too encouraging either with only two points from a possible nine gathered to date.

    A very quick improvement is now required to justify all of the hype or a certain chairman is going to have a lot of egg on his face come seasons end!
    not happy it was always a very big risk sacking adkins that far into the season. another massive error was not signing another defender in the window, and now it appears we have signed a defender for 4m who clearly isnt fit. some one some where in the club needs to go on a decision making course cause at the moment their not great

    Not match fit - Norway has a winter break - he hasn't played since December

    Quite F Fan that seemed exactly the problem to me. Given his contribution you can forgive the naive mistake but he does need to learn from it.

    Good team effort and Hoover played well IMO. J-Rod gets best improver though for good commitment and effort.

    Good team effort naive defending and shows we have missed Fonte last couple of games. Our attack has had 35 attempts at goal in the last two games and sadly only produced 3 goals.
    Yet being realistic Everton was going to be tough, Man Utd impossible but we frightened the knickers off them.
    Wigan well at half time we would all of taken a draw.
    Put things in perspective Everton have only lost 3 of their last 33 league games.
    Man Utd have won every game at home except against spurs. They are the highest goal scorers.
    Basically start of the season Wigan ran all over us at our place.
    We need to turn dominance into results.
    It is worrying that we control games and then give them away by poor finishing and defensive error.
    But in truth the way we are pressing the game is good. I think and only an opinion Fonte has been the difference the last 2 games. He shouts and gets things organised at the back, I don't think Rooney would have been allowed to sneak in behind the defence as he did hoov for the second Utd goal and maybe the mix up in the first would of been avoided. In fairness if Fonte had played yesterday I suspect we would of won. But it is just that maybes

    I think MP should have made a tactical sub after our second goal, just to breakup play a little,m and waste a few seconds. Saints don't seem to have a tactical game, lasts why we keep giving our lead away so much, we need to learn how to kill the game when we're ahead with mins left on the clock.
