Square pegs in round holes Ralph.
No Left back then why not put KWP there like you have all season when you should not have and play Valery a right back in his position.
Redmond had a great game but he is not a defender.
Broja has done nothing since the transfer hype in January so why is he in ahead of Adams. Diallo ahead of Romeu ??? Where do I begin on that one, Romeu should imo be our captain.

Still one more day out and another season will be done. The board needs to have a clear out and No not Ralph, but his back room staff, how the hell can all our first team coaches be ex goalkeepers.
Try and attract Steven Davis back from Rangers as a player coach, mainly for a coach but he would not let us down as a sub to help change games, that is if Ralph made a substitution.

Give Ralph the backing for the signings he wants and let’s go again, if nothing changes after that then before the winter transfer window then the big sackin must come.

Same old Saints.
Cannot defend, cannot create & cannot score (other than a dubious penalty).
What is Ralph thinking bringing Stephen's back into the side, 3 weeks ago he was where he should be which is nowhere to be seen.
Stephen's has never been good enough for Premier Lge & never will be. He's lazy, he lacks concentration & his pedestrian style of play rubs off on others.
Ralph continuses to play players out of position then wonders where it went wrong
, playing Salisu at Left wing back is crazy, KWP should have moved over to the left & Valery come in & played on the right, that's his natural position.
We've all known for a long time that Ralph's a lovely fella, but a Premier Lge manager he's not, he typifies the clubs lack of ambition.
A word on JWP, we all know what he's good at but let's have a look at what he's not so good at, he's not a natural vocal leader, he's far to negative in his play, his first thought is sideways & backwards, he's not prepared to run with the ball & he is just not creative enough.(compare him to James Maddison, chalk & cheese come to mind).
That's enough about the team, Saints have been blessed with fantastic support whichever lge they've been in, but why Oh why do they insist on singing "we hate Pompey" when we're not playing them, it seems that the fans lose interest in the match in front of them & resort to singing about our near neighbours.
But I understand its difficult to sing " when the Saints go marching in" when we are being stuffed 4-1.
Let's try to look forward to next season, I for one am not convinced it will be any better unless RH & most of his deadwood are
replaced.

Battled well in the first half but we're abject in the second. Few chances all game and defensively awful.
Fans were magnificent and derived more.

Something is wrong with a side that 2 seasons in a row goes on a fantastic run and then subsequently the performances drop off a cliff.

Need to ask some hard questions over the summer break if we are to make further progress.

Daft mistake for the first goal, a sh1thouse second goal and then 2 drops in concentration. Barely any decent chances. Adam A looked better but still seems to be overawed by the PL. Does a good move and then fluffs the follow up.

Think it was probably good bye to a few old hands/bit part players today. Change needs to happen. I suspect that most of the first team replacements will be players already in the squad.

Just hoping for a few additions.

Hey ho stayed up ....just.

Now now. 10 years in the PL is exceptional (Ralph's words). Staying up is an achievement (Ralph's words)

My words...

Ralph is a PATHETIC excuse for a manager and the so called fans who claim to support him are just as, if not more pathetic than him.

We are a mid table club who have ended up mid table. Given our poor run of results since February 15th isn’t too bad in the end. You only have to look at Everton’s season after the money they spend to see that this is a tough league. Once again today we didn’t have a threat up front and crumbled at the back after gifting the first goal. It is crucial that the club get the recruitment right this summer and we really must get rid of the deadwood. We have had some decent performances and results this season so we know we can do it, but we really need better players in order to find some consistency.

The icing on the cake of a truly awful end of season run in for Saints. After a fairly solid first half, we contrive to give up a farcical goal and then never looked likely to get back in it. We do not have any cutting edge or difference makers in the team. We concede first and we usually lose. Big changes needed ahead of next season - but who knows what will happen in the end. Bah!

Almost everything was as shite as it could be today!
Some appalling officiating that lead to their opener, as well as Romeu getting booked for him blowing the whistle when they had the chance to kick it out (just thank f*ck he gave that pen or we might as well just left).
Some appalling playing, as what the heck was Lyanco doing for the fist goal? As he’s had a decent first half but it all went down after that, and we were rubbish up front creating basically nothing! As it was just the same very few players that actually performed and did ok today, whilst the rest were utter dogsh*t.
Tactically we were iffy in the first half but did bugger all in the second half, with all the players giving up after the 3rd. As our starting 11 was as good as it basically could be (other than maybe A Armstrong for Adams) but we just didn’t create anything and only scored because of a penalty. So I’m no longer wanting Ralph in or out as I couldn’t care less who’s in charge next season.
And I thought that we’re called Southampton FC? Not Portsmouth, Liverpool, Everton or Man U? As if my hunch is right then why are we singing soo consistently about some other team when our team needs a backing!? As people in the past have complained about many just singing about the skates non stop, with us beating them like 4 years ago, yet today just summed it up! As we should be singing about Southampton to back our team up when we need it when we’re 3-1 down (which is what got Everton out of relegation as that’s the reason why they won those last home games, as their fanss sung about their club and backed their team up so that they got the motivation they needed to win). And singing about Rooney just to try and get under his skin even though he’s no where near us, as it did bugger all, as maybe back at the dell when you were within a few metres it worked, but when your miles away it makes bugger all difference, whilst singing about our club (which we should be singing out of pride to support our players) can actually motivate players.

But look unless we get like 5 more PL quality players then we are going down next season as our squad is not good enough

i can't be bothered to do the ratings. I was at this game and I think I'll not attend any next season unless we get rid of RH. We all know the central defence is pretty rubbish, but that's no excuse a) for putting Stevens in over anybody else who's fit, b) not improving any single CD in 3+ years in charge, c) never having a consistent, or sometimes even sane, tactical approach, d) picking the starting IX from a hat.
And it's not as if there's much of an argument against getting rid of him. The old question of "who would we get" is pretty irrelevant. If we stick with this bloke, consider this....Our form over the last third of the season would project to the lowest but one premiership points total over a season. 5 points in 13 games is less than 15 over a season.

The owners, management, players and especially Ralph deserve utter contempt for their consistent delivery of poor quality in every area all season. Special contempt goes to Ralph for being clueless and using guesswork to pick teams and subs and being a total massive failure.

Well we might be in the Premier lge for another season but that's all.
With Ralph in charge & the current squad we cannot survive at that level for much longer.
Most (not all) other Premier Clubs have progressed while Saints have regressed.
We only survived by the skin of our teeth this season thanks to a couple of other teams faltering.
FEAR is the problem at St Marys, Ralph does not believe in himself or the squad.
Even after 37 games he just does not know his best team or best system to play.
Ralph, listen, it's simple play your best players in their best position, stop trying to be too clever, most of our players struggle at this level playing in their best position so they have no chance if played out of position.
Ralph set the team up to play Liverpool assuming we were going to get beat so attempted minimise the damage by playing deep & after we scored go even deeper.
Suicidal tactics against the quality Liverpool have.
You could see & feel the FEAR in Ralph's face & over the season he has installed that FEAR into the players.
They are now afraid to receive the ball, they are afraid they will make a mistake.
Opposition can sense & smell the FEAR in Saints so go for our jugular.
Apparently we have Goalkeeping coaches plus Dead Ball situation coaches. We'll get rid of them because they are not doing their job. McCarthy getting beaten at his near post again. Then conceding again from a corner, What , our smallest player JWP (bless him) trying to mark Liverpools tallest player, come on you wouldn't see that at the park on a Sunday morning.
Thank god the season is all but finished & let's hope next season gives us a fearless manager & a team full of fearless players.

No longer gutted to lose games like this, It’s become the norm. I remember a time, way back in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s when we used to play with determination, passion and pride. What we lacked in skill, we made up for with sheer grit. We would run for 90 minutes every single game, and wear the badge with pride. Unfortunately, all of that has long gone. If we are to relive past glories, then we must have a mass clear-out. That clear-out HAS to start with Ralph and ALL of his coaching staff. After that, we must get shot of the deadwood in the squad. I’m hoping that Forest don’t get promoted, as I’d love to see Steve Cooper as our next manager. Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Sort of OK.

Seemed to go missing after scoring the first goal. Redmond and Minamino's goals were both great shots. The headed goal a bit of a duffer to let in.

Thought our shape looked unbalanced, Tsimikas was left unmarked for most of the second half as the back 5 slid across and Eli seemed to tuck in. Several fraught conversations between KWP and Eli.

Did the crowd turn on McCarthy seemed a lot of booing at the same time as his poor kicks? If so, not too sure what it was meant to achieve.

Thought the subs came too late. Once again reactive rather than proactive.

Lyanco and Salisu looked good, Diallo I don't think is going to make it - looked a passenger and his reactions are still too slow. Broja looked better but a 20 year old lone striker was always going to struggle.

Oh well, we're safe.

Pitiful stuff. Liverpool B team strolled around and had it all there own way. We were pathetic from start to finish. I hadn't realised Elyounoussi was playing until his near-post flick on that set up the winner. I reckon we could do with getting rid of most of the players I saw tonight (not that we will get much for them), KWP the honourable exception. Also, sadly, I have totally lost confidence in the manager. He really does seem clueless. Let's get someone in able to deal with the players he actually has rather than those in this fantasy football squad. Pretty awful night to be a Saint.
