Ok away at Liverpool we knew what was going to happen. but this is not knee jerk this has been happening for a long time. something is so wrong here and manager coming out and saying we are playing great and players coming out and saying we are happy with everything is really concerning. Something is badly wrong and something needs to happen sooner rather than later. everyone looks beaten and like they could not give one eff about anything.

Hi rayzer, this was an abject pitiful, performance with no decent chances created. I predict we will lose to Everton at home and we will get a real trouncing away to Man City, lucky to keep it to single figures. I believe the deal for VVD is already done to Liverpool and Bertrand will put in his transfer request as well. THIS IS A CLUB IN CRISIS!

Hi don't like to say it but vintage saint is spot on this club are now reaping what they have sown over the past 3/ 4 seasons, Just listening to the reports against liverpool and the game could have ended 7/ 8 nil this manager seems to have no motivation skills, no tactical ability, is in a league way above his level his negativity has left the team without any structure and with no cofidence what so ever, there is now several players in the saints team that saints should get shot of this next transfer window, you all know who they are so I am not going to name names, yes I am tadic, redmond, boufal, yet to see ward prowse have a good game, Bertrams head is at man city. sorry to say it but with these players this manager and no prolific striker relegation is staring saints in the face.

I think we just need to clear out our squad. Didn't watch the game but supposedly the first goal was a mistake made by Tadic. He hasn't been good enough this season, think he needs to go. Shane Long hasn't scored in 10 months he needs to go, he brings nothing whatsoever to the team. Bertrand and VVD both don't want to be at the club they should go. Replace these players with academy players (Stephens, Targett and Sims), we haven't managed to bring through academy players and establish them into the first team since Shaw.
FF still plays every game, even though he is probably the worst GK in the PL. It's an embarrassing decline that is rapidly happening.
I don't feel like the manager knows the squad or enough about the PL to do an antiquate job. We had an okay run going when he played two up top. Then for some reason he went back to 4-2-3-1 and it just isn't the right formation for what we have. If you're playing that formation you need a target man, SL and MG are not target men.
As for Black I don't know why any board would want to hire a first team coach from a team that got relegated. How would that ever help us get top 6?
VVD "Best defender in the PL" - we've played worse with him in the squad. We were much better with Stephens and Yoshida. The only thing that has been inspiring so far this season is the signing of Lemina apart from that we've been shockingly bad. We can't score goals, we don't set-up to score goals. The manager has a big squad and doesn't know how to use any of the players. Boufal for example, he is a very talented footballer. However, he's still very immature, wants to do slick skills against every defender he comes up against and you just can't get away with that in the PL. He is most effective as a substitute against a tired defence, where his skills will cause mistakes and create chances.

Hi guys, I am so disenchanted that I cannot be bothered to write any more, get Allardyce in for the season pay him a huge bonus if he keeps us up, and. Bertrand and VVD will go January or next summer and have a real cull of all this deadwood, Tadic, Redmond, Austin, Long etc in the meantime look intensively through the youth squads and draft them in, we might not quite be in the bottom three which I predict will be Palace, Swansea, West Brom who will drop down but it will be close Bournemouth look to have turned the corner, Everton seem to have discovered some backbone, West Ham with Moyes and Pearce kicking ass will improve, but we have nothing. What really p----- me off that the weakness of the team is so obvious from the start of the season and the quality of football has been pitiful. Anyway let's see if the Board do anything now or p--- about until January. I bet the latter! . Regards vs.

I don't think it's that tadic hasn't been good enough sometimes as he's putting balls in the box. There's just no target man. Gabbiadini was thriving on those low crosses when he first came in. At the moment with have redmond taking factor many shots when he couldn't he a barn door. The tactics and forwards don't suit tadic being on the pitch.

It's like he's trying to pick his strongest team on paper each week instead of using player strengths. He never seems to change much either when it's clearly not working. Looking at our run of games and the points difference to relegation zone I think we could likely be around that drop zone come the new year. This isn't a doom a gloom post I genuinely believe we fudged up changing manager.
