half of the season ! No real complaints today, though the goal that was conceded points to a need to sharpen up our defense on free kicks. Forster continues to justify his return. Monster performance by Salisu, but everyone was really good, with KWP and Romeu stand outs for me. We have got our mojo back at St Mary’s, we don’t lose. Good feeling about the team - and the club as a whole - right now.

Even early in the second half if only a slightly better placed header. Defended for our lives at times and ride our luck a little bit late on but we deserved and earned that luck.
Thought Armstrong was lucky he did not see red card and a great substitution immediately to take him off afterwards.

Still that was a performance to build the rest of the season on, but sadly we have no hope of signing Broja. Enjoy him while we can. Chelski will want him back.

....Meanwhile back in the real world.....fantastic performance, matched up to one of the best sides in the world. Almost won Broja just offside. Mind you if he had scored we wouldn't have a chance of buying him.
Salisu was absolutely sensational. Quick, stunning tackles, great positional sense.
Perraud put a fantastic level of effort in kept Sterling and then Jesus quiet.
Romeu broke up just about everything in midfield.
KWP again showed why he should be picked regularly on the right. Grabbed his chance to show why he should be first choice RB.
Everyone though played out of their skins. Armstrong looked to be getting back to his old self.
VAR again tried to spoil things - if you can't seean obvious error after looking after say 3 times then why keep on looking?. Luckily sense prevailed on both decisions.
Ralph has worked wonders after last season's collapse.
Crowd sounded fantastic.

Every player shone, nobody let us down and the atmosphere in and out of the stadium was electric.
I had said that Salisu had been showing his lack of experience lately but seemed like a giant last night, Forster maybe just earned a contract (with a slight pay cut maybe) and KWP must have made Ralph consider playing Livramento elsewhere, the midfield worked incredibly hard and the two up front harried, pressed and held the ball up when needed. Super performance and one that gives us a bit of confidence and Ralph the basis of his team talk for Tottenham!
