I might be being a bit naive here, but why is Martina on the bench? If, as expected he is not offered a new contract, then he will leave. Would it not make more sense to put somebody like Sam McQueen in his place?

I don't like us sitting this deep and inviting them in. It's asking for trouble especially when you give the ball back to them every time you string 2 passes together. Could be a long 90 minutes. I can see what the plan is on the break but we aren't anywhere near good enough at the moment to make it pay.

Just watched from the multiple angles and Forster appears to have got the slightest of touches on the ball but not enough to change the direction which was from Sane's heavy touch. The pundits are still calling it a penalty but if you factor in that Sane was being a little clever and then didn't protest when he got up, I'd say it was the right decision.

Rubbish, it wasn't a pen. Fraser tipped it, and then his hand dropped to the deck to avoid the oncoming players leg; what was he supposed to do, bury his hand in the turf?

Sometimes I don't recognise our team. I hate the sort of challenge Bertrand just made and find it uncharacteristic. Can't see Hojbjerg finishing this game without a 2nd yellow.

Come on boys! I know we are playing one of the biggest clubs in the world but we should be doing a lot better, are sitting too deep! Just off to get a pie and give some hand relief to the hubby in the toilets before the game re-starts, hopefully it should relieve the tension !

Forster should have saved that. Right at him. Gabbi goes off. Replaced by that well-known goalscoring ace Long....Gabbi wasted today. Non-existent service to him. Shameful. This is too easy for City. We're not putting them under any pressure. Gutless performance so far.

We are basically being hammered at just 1-0. Is it just me or are City knocking the ball to the nearest advancing spare man then slicing open our defence while we are going side ways and backwards with too many touches (as usual) until the threat has gone? I don't understand the double substitution either. I'd have liked to see Boufal trying to feed Gabbiadini for a while first.

While Gabbi was playing we had at least a remote chance of scoring. But that's Puel for you. Clueless at this level. Get rid.

Clod continues to show little tactical awareness and forward looking vision,with him remaining in charge of Saints there can only be more of today's misery, dreary uninspiring play and further sliding into mediocrity.

Our lads were made to look like numpties by that counter attack goal. That would never have happened with Fonte, Toby, Virgil in defence. Firkin shambles.

0-3. This is embarrassing. What a useless shower. Stop their wages. Long goes off with ankle probs. That's him done for the rest of the season. Lazy incredibly well paid days ahead for Shane. Nice work if you can get it.

I get the impression Caceres has impressed Puel and he is the replacement for VVD next season. That's the only reason I can see for not playing Caceres. That and if he plays well another club will pinch him off us just like the Toby situation.

Forget city's wealth and quality... For me, we shouldn't have more than 4 players score less than 8 and our scores today out of 10 in general? I think Forster = 6 Cedric = 6 Stevens = 4 Yoshida = 5 Bertrand = 6 Ward - Prowse = 5 Hojbjerg = 5 Davis = 6.5 Redmond = 6 Tadic = 6 Gabbiadini = 6 Long = 5 Boufal = 6 Rodriguez = 5 Puel = 2 Caceres ( WTF have I got to do to get off the bench) = 8

Mediocre at best and that is being very kind absolute drivel at worst and the club have a lot to work on behind the scenes this summer to back the manager. I want to see us make the next huge step sadly will never happen without serious investment but nowhere near high profile enough

The result was disappointing, but the performance was as good as we could expect, against a team like City, but it was all over at 0 - 1, the best we could have hoped for was a nil nil. A win was about as unlikely as forlorn being a Southampton fan.

OMG so disappointing. We kept our shape and stayed compact but we kept letting De Bruyne space down the right. The hubby is obviously not happy, he gave me a lovely pearl necklace after the match and is now nice and relaxed. A real shame about the result of the match.

Phew, thank Gawd that game is out the way. Am I glad we got 40 pts already. Wouldn't want to rely on a game like that for PL survival. And to think next season Man City will be able to buy the PL with the money Pep will have to spend. Sad to say but we will not finish in 8th place this season. Chelsea next. Oh sh1t.
