Southampton v Huddersfield Town Your Report added by JimmyMeliaPhD at 15:26:01
Not worth rating the players or reporting on the match. Except maybe to give 10/10 to Austin, Long, Stephens as parting gifts. I hope. The point now is to see how this weird squad gets shuffled.
I personally want to see us be rid of Stephens, Austin, Long, Elyanoussi, Gallagher.
And I think we'll sell McCarthy too.
And I think that it would be a mistake, especially if there's not much money floating around, to outright buy Ings.

Just imagine how everyone's going to feel if our main striker on the first day next season is Ings, Austin or Long. Even the biggest optimist would have to give up at that point. So this all means we'll be needing new strikers. Clearly Obafemi is going to be one. Maybe try Carillo out under new management. But definitely at least one new striker required, as we all know.

I think loanees Reed and Hesketh will be given a chance to make the team.

And I think some youngsters will also be blooded, including Alfie Jones at CB.
But even so, a good centre back is needed, as we all know.

So I don't really expect many new signings. In fact we'll make more progress with "addition by subtraction," getting rid of unproductive resources. IMHO next year will be an evolution mostly from below with youngsters, plus a new striker and new CB.

You read it here first (ha-ha! Pretty much what everyone's been saying all season).

Promised an attacking performance from a team wanting to win the game, but RH didn't sufficiently motivate his team and we got a typical end of season nothing performance.
Far too pedestrian like all our performances since we have been virtually safe, only this time we didn't concede the usual 3 goals !!
Had some good chances but were frustrating in front of goal. Ings wants too many touches instead of shooting first time, JWP too scared to shoot and has to get everything into his right foot all the time, Redmond although prepared to run at them, needs to know when to pass or shoot. He got a super goal, but unfortunately after that, the team thought they had done enough and went back to slow mode.
With 20 mins left in front of over 30k fans, you would think they would want to win the game and put in a performance for the fans, but no. Players became lazy and didn't seem to want to amend Gunn's error.
The game was summer up as we approached injury time. The fans wanted us to press forward and get a winner, but Stephens was content with passing it back to the keeper on at least 3 occasions.

Not much to cheer about, so further proof that RH has a massive rebuilding job ahead of him. Need to get rid of at least 10 or 12 and sign 4 or 5.

Finally well done to Iron Fran.

Thank goodness this season is over. Absolute s**** at the beginning, absolute s**** at the end.

A whole season of "we need to learn from our mistakes" , a whole season and they have learned nothing at all.

What a load of aimless crap we had to put up with today, half this team needs putting out of their misery for good. No wonder there were hundreds of empty seats and thousands left before the final while thousands more couldn't be bothered to stay for the lap of appreciation.

Hutch was not at all happy with what he saw today and clearly wants and expects big changes over the summer. We must hope that Gao can match his ambition. The next three months may well decide our future as a Premier League club.

Dull game which showed really why we are where we are. All our full backs had already mentally packed and gone on holiday, our strikers were back to their old tippy tappy hesitant ways trying to pass the ball into the net rather than shoot, and an individual error in defence cancelled out a great goal and from a winning position...again.

Best bit about the game: Iron Fran at half time and his reception

Bit that totally summed up the game:the bloke 'running' on the pitch, bowing to every stand while being pursued at an equally slow rate by the groundstaff, who also looked like they couldn't really be bothered.

Thank F that season is over. Hope Ralph is given what he needs to have a good crack at next year. Best wishes to all Saints fans for a great summer.

The game summed up the season. Unable to hang on to a lead and giving away silly goals. At least we have a manager who knows the score and what needs to be done. Lets hope we have a board who will back him.

A strong line up for a game that did not matter. Thank goodness it did not matter. Imagine if relegation had been between us and Cardiff. Cardiff at Man U and Saints with a home game against Huddersfield.... We are not very good as our position in the table clearly reflects.

I'm supposed to be in the office tomorrow. I might pull a Sainty. I'll turn up at my desk, mis- send the odd email and then drop a few sensitive documents on the floor. Roll my eyes and then sit in front of my computer going through the motions. But do it really absent me mindedly as I'm on holiday the following week.

Could I ask that each of you on this brilliant website donate £40 to my bank account please? I'll give you a lazy little clap if you do. Cheers, have a good summer.

I didn´t see the game, unfortunately. I´m waiting for more comments on both the game and the post match atmosphere at Saint Mary´s. Did any players (Austin?) look like saying goodbye like Tadic did last year after the last game of the season?

Well that was a complete let down,great goal from Redmond but please learn to pass by the time you come back next season.We still lost points again from the defense although it was the keeper this time who normally is the one you don't expect to make the mistake.Hopefully we get rid of the deadwood that is so obvious so we don't have to go through another season like these last two.Nobody covered there selves in glory this game but we go on and think positive that under Ralf next year will be a lot better with a full season under him,that's 65 years supporting Saints never a dull moment,but God willing next year l will make 66 COYS.

Decent first 15 minutes of the second half. Apart from that a game to forget as fast as possible.
Elyounouissi got a full game and the writing on the wall couldn´t be more clear: Thanks and goodbuy.
Stephens gave away too many balls, even for his standards.
Lemina tried hard but nothing came of it.
I guess the game what valuable for RH in a sense.

Maybe there's a conspiracy going on in the Premier League, the way team picks a crap side so that the home team is guaranteed a win in their last home game of the season so fans go home happy and team of better things next year and crucially stand in line to renew their season tickets?

Well, you never know... nothing is impossible.

... er, Ward Prowse winning a one on one tackle maybe.

I saw things a bit differently from most of the above. This is just my perspective but Ely looked a lot better to me, that's not too much praise as he was dire earlier in the season. His final ball was better and he did some good stuff of the Ings and long non scoring variety but that doesn't count for much with most people, Armstrong was totally lightweight and ineffective , I'm leaning towards the flog him off camp as our midfield is so strong, and poor old Forster was looking okay but fell off fast and looks spent, ......that second goal jeez. Until Redmond came on we looked to be preparing for our summer break . Ralph hopefully was using this free game to look at a few players but if that was a serious team picked to get a result against West Ham, he made a big mistake. Oh well, bring on next season, this one is done.

The game changed for the worse when Armstrong went off and the lightweight Ward-Prowse came on. Danny Ings was once again ineffective and looks a complete waste of £20 million. Jack Stephens has to go along with Elyounoussi. Valery also had a poor game yesterday giving the ball away for the first goal. Looks like Mr Gao needs to spend a lot of money to replace the rubbish we have built up over the last 3 years.

I have no idea what Ralf was thinking today. It was a case of playing players who we already know are not good enough. Forster can't catch a cold in a hospital let alone a ball. El-no-usey is just that. Stephens seems to have become Championship class. Stuart Armstrong would be great for say Derby or Forest. This side needs some serious surgery in the summer. If you count the money wasted on these players and all those on loan and you realise just how bad the Reed/Krueger time was. I almost think Ralf used this to show how bad the fringe players are. As for I_Would... you can't blame Prowsey. He came on and put the ball in to great areas.

One to forrget. Shame for the fans who went up, club should reimburse them. Bloody funny team selection, surely Hutch knew enough about the fringe players not to take the risk on playing them or doesn't he care about finishing 17th. Well he is responsible for today's fiasco solely and playing to lose smacked a little bit of arrogance to me

The annointed one was bang on form today even falling over in his own box when a tackle would have been easier.

One more yellow and Oriol will have the complete set and can swap them for a dunces hat!

Well one thing this proves is that what we have been saying for ever that the deadwood is still the deadwood,Stephens once again shite, Forster shite, Long back to nervous Nellie in front of goal again.Redmond had a awful game can't pass and can't shoot, and as for Elyounoussi he is never ever going to make it in the Premier league.Only thing good for me was l got the score correct,original score l had was lose 2-1 but when l saw Stephens to start changed it to 3-0.At least now Ralf must surely see what we all see.
Nobody actually had a good game today, onward and upward next season COYR.
