Southampton v Shrewsbury Town Your Report added by Flamingbankers at 13:40:34
Saints dominated most of the match apart for a few breaks and a few half chances. The first half was fairly encouraging considering the cobbled-together team. The second half was frankly a bore fest with Saints pinging the ball from side to side without any penetrative balls through the Shrews midfield or defence. Stephens tried the Vestergaard long ball and this worked once, after 19 minutes, in about 20 efforts but it did bring the goal that was well controlled by young Watts (below the shoulder) and was well taken by N'Lundulu - sensibly placing his shot across the goalie. Valery looked poor at first but gradually grew into the game and overall had a good performance. Watts, my MOTM, was a skilful livewire and for a first match looks an exciting prospect - I hope he keeps a place on the bench on Saturday. Lastly , I was also pleased with the performance of Fraser Forster charging out quickly to clobber the ball whenever necessary and made one good save - getting down quickly, smothering the ball and keeping it close to his chest. We will need a stronger, more adept team to face Arsenal though.

No banana skin, good run out for kids, they mostly played well but each extra touch made me increasinly scared for saints of a future without Ings!

We did what we had to do with no dramas. A few players got a rest, a few academy prospects got a run out and valuable experience. The team controlled the game without really breaking a sweat. Job done.

It was good to see some of the youngsters tonight but thank goodness we were playing Shrewsbury. We didn’t carve out too many chances but those we did we really should have done better with. Still, we have avoided a potential banana skin.

How to keep the score down, put Long on. Can someone let Ralph know that Long can't score, falls over and is perpetually offside? Seems pretty obvious to everyone on the planet except for Ralph.

Leicester City v Southampton Your Report added by Flamingbankers at 14:09:25
It was a frenetic and fairly enjoyable game except for the result. I thought Saints played well overall but gave too many balls away - allowing Leicester to break in characteristic style (luckily Vardy wasn't quite up to his brilliance or had enough support up front). Walcott and Stephens the two main culprits. In the Premiership if you lose possession, you're going to be punished most of the time. Walcott was ineffective in the central position and would probably have been better on the wing. Perhaps Long and Adams should have started up front. I also thought Saint were unlucky: not having the core of our team - Vestergaard, Romeu and Ings; Leicester seemed to get a lot of 50/50's from the Ref; Armstrong hit the bar; and Long was unlucky not to be awarded a plenty. Bednarek was as consistent as usual and Diallo seems to be improving match-on-match. Nevertheless , I felt that that Saints never posed much of a threat to the Leicester goal where Schmichel seemed to be on excellent form. I was impressed with a stalwart Leicester defence, particularly Justin who seems to be an international player in the making.

We played really well in the first half. It was a really good game to watch. A few errors led to the first goal. Lacked a cutting edge up front.

Second half we laboured. We came back into it but left ourselves wide open to a counter attack at the end.

I think Leicester edged it really although a draw would not have been an unreasonable result.

Smallbone was excellent, I just hope his injury is not as bad as it looked.

Ralph has worked miracles but we need a bit more depth. Bench told a story, average age of 22, with two 32 year olds sat on it!

Standard of overall play very good on a difficult pitch. Charlie gave everyone a lift and both goals were very well taken. Dickie was excellent, seems to be getting better and better.

A great all round brave performance by all the team. Valery looked good coming on in a more forward position. I hope that he is not moved on to another club, there surely is a future for him at Saints

Ibrahima Diallo, already SO tactically well educated and safe in his receiving and delevering the ball, was superb - as was every Saints player.
It was Diallos smart heading the ball above Thiago into the path of Armstrong - in the first third of Liverpools half - which resulted in the free kick, which JWP, superbly, smartly, chipped - with a hell of a lot of rotation in it, rotating away from Ings' marker, Arnold, - above the Liverpool backline, towards the NEAR post, into the path of Ings - WHILE PROTENDING to make a cross towards the FAR post towards Bednarek/Stephens. BRILLIANT.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU. <3

What a season we are having! Beating Liverpool with - besides Shane Long - only homegrown players with an average age og 21 years on the bench is for me one of the proudest moments in my 40+ years as a Saints fan. Seeing Ralph, at the end of the game, go down on his knees with tears of joy, gave me goosebumps.
GET IN THERE.
Leicester and Everton are the two teams I see as our main rivals in staying in the top 7 (European football), and I can see us staying around them in the table throughout the season.

Get in there !!
Tremendous result and performance from one and all.
Great to see everyone putting in a shift and even the subs doing well. Shame Tella and Valery couldn't score and that Liverpool resorted to diving, but I guess that shows how well we played and frustrated them.
Think in the end, including Djenepo, we probably had more out than Liverpool, which makes it even sweeter and probably explains why Ralph was so emotional.

First time we've been able to close the game out in ages. Good team choice, good subs, Insgy back on the score sheet, Ward Prowse defended and produced, the young lads came in and did very well and no Long in sight! Could be a turning point especially for the young lads and I think Ralph felt that in his emotions.

Norwich, as expected, the better side but QPR dug in with a repel all boarder attitude. Got the reward for their commitment and could have won.
Referee was too card happy to get any more.
