Hasenhuttl Trying To Avoid Unwanted Record At Home
at 17:50:32

A1079, yours is the best response I have ever read on any subject at any time on the Ugly. Logical, well written and showing latent passion. It was a pleasure to read it, I only wish that I was half as eloquent as you obviously are.

As a balance to your extensive response I will keep it short. As a season ticket holder I'm utterly sick of Southampton Football Clubs employees and their apparent cheer leader Nick, suggesting that our abysmal home form is somehow to be laid at my door. As I posted previously the time has now upon us for the club's management team and players to stop "talking the talk" and starting on Saturday against Villa to "walk the walk". They need to accept that they alone are responsible for their abject recent failures at St Mary's and to stop continually looking to blame decent people who game after game invest their hard earned money into the club.

Saints Need To Rediscover Home Form Against Aston Villa
at 14:16:59

About the only part of your article with which I can agree Nick is that we need to beat Villa on Saturday. To be honest I'm past caring as to how we achieve a win.I just don't want to have to read or listen to anymore excuses from the manager or players as to why they failed to win.It's time for them to stop "talking the talk" and to start "walking the walk" and as I have posted before,to give something back to the long suffering home fans.

Saints V Burnley The Verdict
at 16:48:49

To those suggesting that home fans get behind the team more. May I respectfully remind them that we have lost eight games at home already this season with the lowest number of points obtained, yes lower even than Norwich. That sort of form is not dependent on how the crowd perform.Its down to the players, coaching staff,the manager and ultimately the (under investing) club's owners. As far as I'm concerned I think that the fans have been remarkably patient. This coming Saturdays game against Villa is an opportunity for all those mentioned above to start to correct the situation and to give something back to the fans.No if buts whys or wherefores.

Saints V Burnley The Verdict
at 10:57:54

If we continue with our abysmal home form until the end of the season and our away form dips then despite what the bookies suggest we are going to struggle to avoid relegation.

When the team got together for their pre kick off "huddle" I genuinely thought that one of the mascots had blagged his way in, because Kyle Walker Peters is that small. Only we could replace a top class Premiership full back (Cedric) with an untested player even more lacking in height. From where I was sitting I thought that he was at fault for their second goal rather than the centre backs.

We had better put out a side that wants to win at all costs on Saturday because another defeat will see us right back in the relegation mix. Put simply, it's time for the players to "walk the walk" and give something back to the home fans who have been remarkable supportive given the number of defeats we've had to witness this season.

Who Will Play Right Back Against Burnley
at 18:45:43

I would play Cedric or if he is not fit we can always rely on Yoshida, they are both quality experienced defensive Premiership players, " oh damn".

Good Weekend For Saints Or Not ?
at 11:49:43

With the exception of Norwich all of the relegation candidates ( still including ourselves ) have close to, or more than a point a game to date. If this continues then it's quite possible that a club will be relegated with a points total in excess of forty. West Ham hold the record for a thirty eight match season being relegated having obtained forty two points. With this in mind I caution those who suggest we are already close to safety. There is a considerable amount still to be done starting on Saturday against probably the worst footballing team in the division,Burnley.

Personally I'm ambivalent as who takes the drop as long as it's not ourselves. If I had to hazard a guess I would suggest Norwich,Villa and with some regret Bournemouth.

Saints Indicate Intentions For Next Season
at 12:47:54

Interesting how you have mixed in your own personal views with those of the Telegraph reporter Nick. To be honest the only part of the piece with which I can agree is when you correctly say that the relationship between the club and it's supporters is at an all time low. The rest is just pure speculation with no previous evidence from the owners or management to back up their supposed intentions.Personally I would prefer the club to concentrate one hundred percent on avoiding relegation which at the moment is by no means certain.

Saints At Tottenham Hotspur The Verdict
at 16:57:02

Son may have dived but that wasn't the problem. By that time in the match we should have been out of sight but instead we squandered chance after chance and ultimately paid the penalty so to speak.

Assuming J W P doesn't recover in time I wonder who we intend to play at right full back against Burnley? With I believe Bednarek suspended, dispensing with the services of Cedric and Yoshida is already looking to be very short sighted as many on here suggested at the time.

Yoshida An Appreciation
at 12:37:06

"but I have told it like it is rather than given some emotional diatribe". No Nick, you have told it how you see it,with your opinion being worth nothing more or less than any other poster to the Ugly.

I for one am sorry to see Yoshida depart given that we are now one centre back injury or suspension away from having to play Vestergard. But then again I accept that's just my opinion and its not a fact.

Pity our penny pinching management have denied an additional 3000 fans the opportunity of visiting the stadium to cheer the team on. Nick, on the general subject of recent laway match ticket allocation, has your enquiry of the club produced any response or are they simply not communicating with you?

Saints Transfer Window ! Good Or Bad
at 16:13:01

The facts speak for themselves. Two experienced international defenders gone. A further defender's loan contract terminated. All replaced by a player from Spurs who most fans had never heard of. Anybody who thinks this was a good window and the team is subsequently stronger is frankly way past and beyond deluded in my opinion.

Saints At Liverpool The Verdict
at 13:24:35

Excellent observation about the points required to stay up A1079.Every team below us with the exception of Norwich are close to a point per game to date. Continue in the same vain and they will all finish very close to the fourty points which is usually good enough to remain in the Premiership for another season.How Nick sees it differently is beyond me as is his continual criticism of the centre backs and his failure to give any credit to Yoshida since his departure.

In reference to Saturday, if Armstrong had been fit and J W P had not needed to be deployed as a full back we may have at least kept the score semi respectable.Regretfully, due to failure to adequately strengthen in transfer window after transfer window I fear that we may well encounter similar problems at Spurs on Wednesday and for the rest of the league season. I hope I am proved wrong however.

All Change At Right Back For Saints

As the voice of the Ugly and with your suggested close connections with the club I'm genuinely interested to know where you stand on this one Nick as presently you appear mighty quite.Perhaps you can also let us have some update from the club in regard to the recent and ongoing away ticket take up fiasco please? Failing a response do we take it that much like the rest of us,the club aren't talking to you either?

Spurs Trip Now Sold Out
at 21:00:11

Somewhat difficult to get close to matching the figures suggested in your last paragraph Nick when the club take less than 6000 tickets in the first place, would you not agree? Another away day cock up by whoever is running the ticket office which instead of saving money has cost the club revenue. Coupled with the news in regard to Cedric and his replacement,today is a day when once again in regard to SFC "You simply couldn't make it up".

All Change At Right Back For Saints

Pathetic decision if indeed its corect.

As dirk doone so correctly puts it where on earth is the advantage to the team going forward?Replacing a tried and tested international player with a complete shot in the dark for the remainder of the season. Adding insult to injury, with also the suggestion that now or at seasons end we won't even get a fee for Cedric.

Try and sugar coat this one if you will please Nick as I've no doubt you will as usual take the owners and management line, although I will be happy if you prove me wrong in my suggestion.

A very enjoyable cup tie with the correct result at the end.

Not sure what to make of playing Danso at full back who looked very disconsolate as he trudged back to the tunnel after being substituted. Was it reasonable to play him up against Son who is a quality top class forward or was there simply no alternative?

Everton After Hojbjerg ! Cash Or Swap Deal to Bring Ex Saint Home ?
at 11:30:45

Absolutely not Spider. The last thing we want at the moment is some supposed "big time Charlie" who has achieved nothing since he moved, returning. In regard to PEH isn't he in the process of trying to negotiate a new contract with the Saints at present? If so I suggest that this £35 million figure may well just be his agent talking.

Saints Have To Put Out Strongest Side Against Spurs In The FA Cup

Regretfully no PremIership club takes either domestic cup very seriously anymore. I don't expect Ralph to be any different on Saturday and fully expect to see Saints reserves v Spurs reserves. Either way it would be most pleasurable to see us embarrass Jose the serial whinger once again.
