Superb second half very poor first half. I think Ralph is a good fit for Southampton but got it wrong tonight as it should have been a big confidence booster in terms of going 3rd before tomorrow's games. I think that he should have started Ryan at left back and Cedric at right back and if Danso were to play it would be in place of Vestergard. Moving players around in our weakest zone is offering the opposition a great oppurtunity to exploit that weakness and in the overall picture reduce the confidence of other players on the field (poor performance in the first half) . Compare it to other businesses/ team organisations you would stay with what a person is trained/ eperienced to do e. g. If you are a general builder but trained in bricklaying it would be best to leave you to brick laying instead of carpentry your team would then have solid confidence in you knowing that is your best trade/ position I know I sound negative but believe we will do fine but just need to stick with our best team in its best positions.

Let’s be honest he try’s to play players out of position
This has 2 effects and they’re either a positive or a negative
Tonight it was a negative if he plays to many players out of position we will struggle
We controlled 75% of this game and got hit in the break
And punished
We just don’t have the players capable to do the job In Defence
Our defence at times is school boy
We can’t score struggle to defend so its a impossible job.

A disappointing result, but hat’s off to Eddie Howe the South Coast’s Chess Master who has check-mated Ralph On the night with his team selection and astute acquisitions and must surely be a top candidate as a futureEngland manager. However Ralph is still travelling in the right direction and with a few more Pawns exchanged for more Cutting Edge in the January market we will climb back up. However it must be a consolation for Ralph to know he only has to be good at Draughts to beat the Skates on Tuesday night! KOM.

So, this is the squad for the season what do we all think?
Angus Gunn Alex McCarthy
Jannik Vestergaard Jan Bednarek Jack Stephens Kevin Danso Maya Yoshida
Ryan Bertrand Sam McQueen Cedric Soares Yan Valery
Oriol Romeu James Ward-Prowse Pierre Hoibjerg Stuart Armstrong
Nathan Redmond Moussa Dejenpo Sofiane Boufal Danny Ings Shane Long Che Adams
Michael Obafemi

I would say Hasenhuttl has done a good job thinning the squad.
I would like to see us get rid of Stephens, McQueen and long in January and look to buy a new wing back and a new defensive midfielder.

I seriously don't think we'll be getting rid of Shane Long, he has a year left on his contract. He's the exact player that RH wants to work with. I think he knows his place in the squad, a pair of fresh legs we can look to when we're up in a game that will chase down the ball and apply pressure.
Maybe we'll be able to loan out Stephens and McQueen in Jan. Can't see people wanting to buy them. Again though Stephens is good as a backup option.
I think it's the squad RH wanted, a good mix of youth and experience. I think we might also see a few academy players make the jump from the reserves to the first team: Will Smallbone, Jake Vokins, Dan N'Lundulu.

I can't see us wanting to spend any more money in Jan, we'll work with what we have and promote any academy players if they're good enough or if enough injuries occur.
