    Alanrr's question:

    my one gripe is why didn't sharp use his left foot to put the ball away on his one clear cut chance.


    Because he's utterly unable to kick a football with his left foot. I've only seen him do it once and it was weaker than my Aunty Alice could have managed on a bad day.
    Sounded awfully negative (though true) as he still bags more than enough with his right foot; it's just a little frustrating..."

First published in Saints News

Saints suffered a 1-0 defeat to Ajax as they resumed their pre-season preparations at St Mary’s.

The Dutch side bossed the early stages of the game but Saints adapted well to bring themselves back into the reckoning.

However, Jose Fonte 's poor pass out from the back gifted the ball to Aras Obiliz midway through the second half and he showed a calm head in front of goal to score what proved to be the only goal of an interesting game, but one which had few chances.

Saints: Davis (Gazzaniga 70), Clyne (Richardson 46), Fonte, Hooiveld, Fox (Shaw 70), Schneiderlin (Hammond 79), Ward-Prowse (Chaplow 79), Lallana (Puncheon 79), Do Prado (Chambers 84), Rodriguez (De Ridder 84), Lambert (Sharp 70).

Ajax: Vermeer, Alderweireld, Anita, Sigthorsson, De Jong, Janssen, Blind, Boerrigter (Fischer 46), Ozbiliz, Van Rhijn, Dijks.
