Also fair play to ref Mason as well who is surely 1 of the most hated refs around-if I was marking him at half time I’d have given him 1 out of 10 just for turning up but he was a lot better in the 2nd.
& finally a word for our “friends” from Leicester-what a bunch of w@&*ers they’ve turned into-I was quick enough to praise their support during their seasons when they avoided relegation & then won the league but they’ve gone completely the other way-well done to my fellow Saints fans their today in not rising to the provocation.

What a change in defence. Really functioning well as a unit now.
Everyone is working hard, not sure I can really fault anyone. Full credit to Ralph.
Shane ran his socks off and Adams makes another great assist.
Things are looking up.

With a bit more luck, we could have had 4 or 5. OK Armstrong's goal had a deflection, but Ings was so unlucky to hit the bar twice in a minute at the end of the first half. That 2nd shot was a real belter. He should have also had another after putting us in front, but Schmichael saved well.
VAR did it's best to spoil the game, but I guess if Long was marginally offside, then Evans was too and Ihianacho was miles off.
Great to keep that VARdy quiet and Ings outgunned him - but Maddison still up for continued diving.
There were a few wayward passes - hopefully MOTD2 will show Bednarek on 2Good 2Bad tomorrow night, it was THAT BAD !! :-)
Superb result though - everyone deserves high praise.
Here's hoping for a similar result next week, then the week after as well, as we become the first team to beat the Scousers this season ? (they are winning at Spurs as I write this)

Especially good after the memory of the October massacre, that will remain in the record books this was just another away win. Why can't we play like this at St.Marys.?
YES Ralph- VAR does make it fair - even if it did cost us a legitimate penalty. Without VAR we'd have lost that match, and in "Leicester's 2-2 equaliser" incident they had two players in offside positions and the assistant was in line with them - but didn't flag at all.
