Annoying that Spurs got the lead so early because Yoshida slept in stead of dealing with a low cross that ended up as foods and drinks for Kane at the near post.
Saints hit the woodwork 3 times + there were other chances that should have ended up in Spurs┬┤ net. Davis, Ward-Prowse etc.
I wonder when the marginals will be on our side. Soon I hope.
I sense some optimism in our team, but I am also well known for being optimistic.
Targett had an awful game, unfortunately. Totally involved in the third goal. We should have played Cedric as left back again and kept Valery in the team as right back, but at the end of the day I guess it was ok, that Targett got the chance.
Now, I look forward to some massive game - not least the game vs Cardiff.
Good luck to our new manager <3

Firstly Yoshida has to go utterly pathetic on two goals, totally out of his position again and the second goal he turns his back on the player awful defending again.Hopefully the new manager can sort the back line out although l just don't think there good enough.As for Target we should of taken the 10 million he was completely out of his depth.Although we did create quite a few chances again we failed to put the ball in the back of the net.

Good game, thought we played well, game was over after 3rd goal but we played well, JWP most creative player on the pitch today so well done to him and Davis on his assist and Austin on his goal, poor defending let us down.

You would have thought everyone would have been up for it from the start, to do a job for Kelvin and to try to impress the new manager.

The reality was that we were slow out of the blocks, Targett not bothering to even challenge for a header that resulted in Son hitting the post after a few minutes.
Switched off for their quick corner and Yoshi ball watching as Kane had a tap in.
2nd goal - another corner not properly cleared and they score as defenders turn their backs on shots.
3rd goal - another error just like Hoedt at Fulham - Targett's clearance from the left back position gets charged down and goes to Kane who crosses for the Son tap in.

We rallied a little for the last half an hour, actually had more chances than Spurs, hit the woodwork 3 times and Loris pulled off some good saves - including getting in the way of JWP's follow up to a PEH shot, when it was easier to score !!

My issue was despite the late rally, the game was already lost by then. Spurs had done their job and took their foot off the gas. It was the first half that we needed the performance of the last half hour.

Our defenders are crap - they train with strikers like Long, Austin, Ings and Gab, who have no goals or fitness in them and are not capable of punishing the mistakes made. They are therefore made to look good, that is until they come up against someone with any real skill, pace or quality !! Roll on the January clear out and window.

What a p1ss poor attendance as well !!

SanMarco added 08:39 - Dec 6

A match that confirmed what most of us have known for a long time. Basic defending lapses cost us any chance + plenty of chances not taken. This new guy will have plenty of food for thought as he reports for work today. "How bad must the other 3 CBs be?" is probably the question he will be asking.

An interesting few weeks ahead - Let's all pray for the new manager bounce because defeat on Saturday and things will be looking very grim indeed...

Targett & Ward Prowse! Never want to see these two charlatans in a Saints shirt again.

Stephens & Yoshida are the best we have? I feel sorry for Hasenh├╝ttl he must be wondering why he signed on the dotted line after that inept performance.

Good job Spurs took pity on us and eased off after 3-0 to spare us a complete humiliation. We must thank Mauricio for that, he is probably grieving a bit for his old club after the kind remarks he made about the City & SFC.

Glad Kelvin won't be involved in running the show after that team selection and performance fiasco. No Kelvin, modern football about more than all that "pride in the shirt" bullsh*t

I'll take Nick's advice and see the appointment of a new and progressive manager as a fresh start but, my god, he has got his work cut out for him. Here's hoping he can undo 3 years of negatively and complacency and deterioration in a few weeks.
