    it's going to be a tough one tonight, especially without shaw and clyne maybe, also y.toure will help them a lot but i reckon a brace from rickie and lallana with a solid debut from forren will give us a 2-1 win.

    @ BbB we are up against too much today i fear....if we had our full best team playing then a point absolutely..

    Still our recent play has at times been outstanding..if i am correct you said we needed a extra striker...everyone was rightly talking about defence and still are..

    ... I always felt that we could make enough chances to survive if we converted just 15% of them at present it's more like an average of 7% if you include Mufco and Everton..

    So you are looking correct although none of us are smiling at our position but however we are at our football.

    Greetings everyone, despite a bit of snow, we're back from the hills and gearing up for the big one.

    PLEEEEEEEEEASE everyone, can we ignore the WUMs (whether from skateville or not). No problem with straightforward comments but the WUMs are out of control and the only way to deal with them is shhhhh!!!!

    Meanwhile, I'm glad Clyne's in so that Cork can stay in midfield. I think that's where today's battle will be won or lost. If Spiderman and Cork can take control, we have a chance.

    A Rickie hatrick would not go a miss.

    What a difference a new manager makes! Our whole approach is so much more positive, with players making runs, greater variation in how we distribute the ball and we play at a quicker tempo. I'm glad to see we're pressing more and looking to unsettle the opposition.

    All of these factors suit the players we have in our squad, I still don't understand why Nigel didn't play a more attacking varied game. When we have the ball we now play with the intention of making our possession pay off and not just playing keep ball. You can see that the players are still adapting but it's starting to come good!

    Sky in NZ.. Curbishly (I think) said Southampton dominated just about every department in the game and deserved a comprehensive win. Saints pressured, unsettled and didn't let City play their game.

    AMEN!

    So proud of Saints..

    Have to say though Europol will have to have a very hard look at the game due to a couple of very silly almost comical surreal mistakes from normal solid city players.. Jo Hart dropped one through the legs.. the own goal? The Ref's shocker... these are prime targets for match fixing allegations when you consider the money changing on the game.

    What a difference a new manager makes! Our whole approach is so much more positive, with players making runs, greater variation in how we distribute the ball and we play at a quicker tempo. I'm glad to see we're pressing more and looking to unsettle the opposition.

    All of these factors suit the players we have in our squad, I still don't understand why Nigel didn't play a more attacking varied game. When we have the ball we now play with the intention of making our possession pay off and not just playing keep ball. You can see that the players are still adapting but it's starting to come good!

    To all the Nigel Sycophants how are you enjoying your humble pie?
    BbB spot on my son...our friends Osprey, velliety, Slugger and be clear they are our friends do not always recognise WUMs from genuine observation...

    I have pretty much agreed with your observations and you mine all season...

    ...funnily enough now Saints are doing what we were DEMANDING it's truly coming up roses..

    ...our football is sublime.. like Barca except more interesting...

    Cortese will probably never quite get the credit he is due because my town Southampton has a bit of a problem with success and envy..

    ..seriously it is an issue and many who do not like him are more motivated because he was a banker than his results..

    ..I myself have had issues with individuals because i have done a little too well, it is the one black spot on 'some' of our citizens and i worry that certain idiots might one day kill the golden goose....however today is a great day..of course for Sky City, Mufco, Everton, Chelsea, Wigan all had off days ALL??
    Yeah I don't get why some fans have it in for Cortese. I think you hit on it with the banker theory, some sort of inverted snobbery. As you say I hope that minority doesn't ruin it!

    It feels so good at the moment and we really haven't seen anything yet. Just think when we add to the squad in the summer with the help of Poch's connections. I really believe in the next couple of years we could start to establish ourselves as a top eight team.

    I like the phrase! Encapsulates the essence of setting down some aims and formulating a plan to achieve them. Sth Poch seems to be doing.

    As for the happy clappers most of the are sound and have started to believe in the club's true potential. When I first came on here they didn't want to hear anything that wasn't towing the party line. They got quite feisty and I received a fair few scratches! There's only a couple of charchters I can't abide on here.

    Thank god you're on here, at least you can reason with them and convey another (correct) point of view.

    City weren't great but we played a very good game. We didn't allow them the space or time to get anything going. When we got the ball our players movement was top draw, although the same can't be said for some of our finishing. I'm abroad and watched the match with foreigners who raved about our performance and said we looked like a top 6 outfit!

    Just got back. What an amazing day (Evening even)!!!!!

    We deserved it on every level. I would like to speak up for Fox. Even though his defensive qualities are dodgy, he put a couple of scud missiles in there tonight.

    I though as a team we out fought and out skilled Man City tonight. We looked amazing


    The win has been coming for a while, but I thank you Saints for the best match I can remember in a very long time. 6 points above relegation, It is looking bright,

    Just got back from the game. What a performance by Saints unbelievable. Every single Saints payer gave a hundred percent perhaps it's wrong to single any of them out but I thought the midfield all four of them were exceptional. People will say Man City had an off day , I wouldn't agree, they wanted to win. Saints outplayed them for he majority of the game. Lambert's a different player he put in a great shift as did J Rod. The defence were solid and Boruc has become a class keeper! I was pleased to see JWP come on he did well in the 15 minutes he was on and clearly is going to be used as a sub towards the nod if games to replace a tired midfielder.

    The Saints I think have turned their season around. This is a quality side with a new zest in it. MP is doings great job. The squad look happy on the training galleries and it seems that MP is a good motivator!!

    I'm so happy and impressed and I think it'll just get better.

    All together now ....oh when the Saints go marching in .....!!!
