|Very clinical half|
at 15:59 18 Jan 2020
After Wolves seemed to look like the better side initially, we took control of that half. Excellent once again. Super finish from Bednarek, and so happy for Long to finally get his goal. Great header, wonderful bit of play from Cedric too! Come on Saints dont sit back, lets go for the kill

I noticed yesterday how we pressed Leicester even in the last few mins of injury time. Players steaming into the press, backing each other up, stopping Leicester even from getting out of their half. It was also highlighted on motd. This more than anything else I found the most impressive aspect of our performance yesterday. That desire to stop the other team playing in such a proactive, non passive way (rather than fall deep and pray we hold on) represents such a monumental shift from where we were just a few weeks ago.
Truly spectacular and brave display, Which reminded me very much of the best games under pochettino. The heart and mental strength to go out there and do that deserves more recognition and praise than I can really put into words. Phenomenal effort from Ralph and the whole team. Felt very proud watching the boys yesterday!
|Pretty sure that ball was moving|

For the free kick that led to the goal. Why is that not being checked?? Useless officiating, what is the point of VAR.
Playing ok up to that point though come on lads Chin up
|Callum Hudson Odoi...|
at 14:42 1 Jan 2020
Watching Chelsea struggle against Brighton, it amazes me that players like Callum Hudson Odoi, at 18 years of age, get paid 120k per week. A few appearances off the bench for Chelsea and he is handed a five year deal on that money. I have never seen anything other than classic Redmond-isms from him - move feet really fast approaching the area, cut back, feint to shoot, check back again, shank the shot / cross / pass.
Football is totally broken; at some point soon the bubble has to burst. I for one am proud to support a team that simply doesn't have the facilities to fully embrace the absolute madness of top tier premier league wages (although that is not to say I am happy at the way we have tried to emulate it in recent times!).

Very clear noises coming out of the club recently about supporters needing to be patient at home. Nothing new of course, but we do have to play our part in the stands to give the boys the confidence to work their way into games at home.
Could be a frustrating game tomorrow against Palace, they will be hard to break down and won't look to attack us as much as a big 4 team would. No groans or boos if we have to pass backwards! The second goal yesterday perfectly illustrated what we can do if the players are patient. Let's really get behind the boys tomorrow and replicate the away atmospheres which have obviously benefited the players this season.

Cedric is going to cost us points sooner or later int his game! Gives away so many stupid fouls and saint-maximan looks like he'll murder him every time he gets near the ball. cedric really is the biggest mystery in world football, how on earth is a euro champion??
Otherwise, pretty pleased with that. Missed a couple of good chances but generally looked very solid. Slightly worried by the prospect of Carroll coming on however

It really doesn't matter how you win. I think a bit of perspective is needed - after the 9-0 and the Everton game I honestly thought we were screwed. The last three games we have shown the fight that we have all been clamouring for, and many of us (myself included) though didn't exist. Arsenal, Watford, Norwich - 7 points.
Yes, we got lucky against Watford, we also had a bit of luck again tonight. I'm not saying we have been (anywhere near) setting the world alight, but the first half especially today we looked like we were back to playing some of our best stuff again. Full marks to the boys, it takes some guts to battle like we have done recently, especially in light of the utter shambles we have been served up this season. Tonight I saw the spirit we have all been calling for. OK its only Watford and Norwich, let's not get carried away - but as much as we like to criticise the players when they don't perform, it's also important to say fair play when they battle like they did.
Proud of the boys!

Great win today, absolutely shocking first half, looked like Everton all over again. Second half not exactly world beating but got the job done so who really cares?
I was watching Redmond today, his performance was once again not good at all and his body language off the ball suggests he is not a happy boy at the moment. I think we've seen Redmond drop off quite a lot this season, he's returned to the days of checking back and passing backwards rather than attempt to beat a man or take on the shot. Reminds me a lot of his performances prior to last season when he seemed to have broken through and really looked like kicking on, potentially becoming a very good player.
Considering Boufal's performance today, surely Redmond should be benched for the Norwich game? Also thought Obafemi was awful today, Watford's defenders will not have an easier game all season. In light of the chat about Ralph calling him out in public, I suspect there's definitely an issue somewhere with his antics behind the scenes. Surprised he was handed another start to be honest.
Finally credit where credit is due, Ralph seems to have attracted a lot of criticism for his subs but today he got it spot on. Boufal and Long changed the game completely for us, it was only once they came on that we looked remotely dangerous going forward

Watching Norwich v Watford, watford I think will have enough to get them
Out of trouble.
Norwich look very much like us, in fact it is almost like watching us play in this game, surreal. Slow laboured build up, get into half decent positions to cross the ball, final ball very poor, edge of the box speculative shot, over the bar, groans from the crowd. When we play them it will be I think one of the lowest quality games of the season. I can see a 3 3 draw, we have had a few high scoring games against them over the years. Either way one or both of us is going down
|Fantastic half by the boys!!|

Absolutely superb first half, so different to the Tuesday game. Seeing a lot of dedication, the boys look right up for it. Yes we are camped inside our own half for practically the entire game, but we are putting in much more of a shift than I think we have seen over the last few games. Proud of the boys with that half, well done Saints
|I know city are good but...|

This is absolutely pathetic. Another training ground match. Is this supposed to be Saints showing some spirit? Is this supposed to be us showing some pride? Disgusted by this team
