Awful result in the end. At 3-1 up we should never have drawn this game. We had a whole season's worth of luck in one game and it still wasn't enough for 3 points. Very worrying.
A fantasic cross from Guly for Lambert's opener, and then a huge amount of luck for our 2nd and 3rd goals.

In the 2nd half, why did we keep pumping long balls forward when there was an easy short pass on? Surely Adkins should've told them to try and keep hold of the ball and slow the game down? Adkins' tactics in the 2nd half we're questionable to say the least! It seems he has no clue about how to see a game out.

The turning point was the open goal that Guly missed. It was an absolute sitter and would've put us 4-1 up. Then a minute later Stoke had pulled one back and it was 3-2.
We had even more luck when N'Zonzi was sent off and then moments later Stoke should've had a clear penalty for handball by Fonte.
This is why we are going down. More dropped points from winning positions. We should've beaten Man Utd, Swansea, Norwich and now Stoke. We keep throwing points away and its going to catch up with us. In the bottom 3 now and in serious danger of going down. Can't keep throwing points away.

Saints must buy a keeper in January. Davis was shaky again and his kicking was atrocious!
At least Jack Cork is showing what a great player he is. Tremendous once again in the middle.

Nothing to add to the earlier report apart from taking off an attacker against 10 men leaving them to reduce at the back as well. This could prove to be a crucial 2 points

I fully understand the disappointment of the points dropped and 2nd half performance, but in terms of football logic this was a good point gained and an OK overall display.

It's very very easy to point what tactics NA had to introduce halfway through the 2nd half, but he had a clear game plan and everybody stuck to it. All we can do is accept their equalizer as it was - just stunning, out of nowhere (as we accept our 2nd and 3rd).

The penalty: it was definitely not foul play by Fonte - at least to the extent the press reports say. It was definitely unintentional as Fonte didn't move his arm towards the ball and Jones's head was right there, probably making contact with Fonte's hand.

We still got to learn in the Prem and we all should give ourselves a little more patience and mature as fans: yes NA could have tinkered with players/tactics but I think it would have had an even worse effect - Stoke were really determined and wild in the air, absolutely motivated, their fans were (like ours) amazing and it was their wondergoal that did them justice. However we are not far away from showing a mature, professional display from start to finish. What I like in our side is that in most of the games we show real spirit, no one can deny that and that's really important. Results will come, believe it or not.

The Fonte handball was a penalty. You can't jump with your hand above your head. He was very lucky to get away with it.

Looking at the fixtures, in the coming weeks we've got away trips to Aston Villa, Wigan and Newcastle. We can't afford to lose any of these games and we probably need to win two of them.
The games against Arsenal, Everton, Man Utd and Man City can be seen as a bonus if we get a win in one of them. 4 points would be a great return.
By the end of February, we could be cut adrift in the bottom 3, or be heading towards safety. Some big games coming up!

hi new to this 1st post, in my view , a point at stoke is a point gained considering their home form, we did have a bit off luck yes ,however people talk of the wonder goal, which indeed it was , but a second or two before he struck it ,our old mate crouchy brought down the ball with his "chest" to lay it off to the scorer , but in doing so used both his arms to do it . my first though was handball ,and the goal should have been disallowed ... watch the replay and see what you think ? .. nit picking i know but if they should of had a pen ,then this goal should not have stood .
