I mean today his sub use was basically exactly what most of us would’ve expected/wanted and I don’t really think his tactics were that off, but when you’ve won 2 I’m 17 and have an FA Cup semi-final with the opposing getting only one shot on target compared to your 0 questions need to be asked!
It seems like with Hasenhurtle we always have one great part to the season with the rest being shit! When he joined it was just our end to the season, last season it was the restart part (and maybe around Christmas as well) and this season it was the start of the season! I mean is this down to the quality of our squad, it’s depth or just him!?
Although is it just Ralph!? I mean when you look at our squad is it really that great, as our owner has done bugger all for us and has made us one of the very few clubs to have a profited net spend and ever since Koeman left it’s always been the same!
So what I can say for a fact is that SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE! Whether it’s our owner or manager or both I don’t know, but it’s getting to a point where something must!

If you'd asked Rodgers at half time what he would like the Saints to do at the start of the second half he would have chosen exactly what we did do. I know what I am saying is boring and unentertaining but at half time I had a sneaky feeling that as long as we kept it tight (or as tight as we are capable of) we might just have a chance. Instead we opened our vulnerable flank up and lost the game.
Appalling ref - Diallo yellow card and then five Leicester fouls just as bad with nothing at all then not giving their guy a second yellow for that assault on Ings.

Perhaps Spurs might have their minds on their cup final next Sunday and we might be able to beat them on Wednesday.

An extremely frustrating evening. We were more worried about stopping Leicester than creating anything ourselves. We carried 4 players and in a game of that magnitude and against that opposition, we simply can't afford that and ultimately got punished.
The goal was littered with errors from start to finish. 2 chances to get the ball under control in the Leicester half, Bed not cutting out the pass to Vardy, Vest not tracking 'nacho, Vest blocking a shot going well wide and deflecting it straight back for 'nacho to score.
We at least went for it a bit after that, but Adams yet again needed 2 extra touches to get it onto his right foot allowing his shot to be blocked and Diallo of all players had our best chance !! Think it means that Ings and Bert will be off now, but based on their performances today, I'd rather the likes of Vokins and Tella or Walcott were played instead.
The ref bottled that (2nd) bookable foul on Ings by Soyuncu, but it wouldn't have mattered. JWP was awful today, so wouldn't have scored from the free kick and we can't score against 9, so we wouldn't have scored against 10 either !!
Season is done now. Spurs away on Weds - it doesn't matter about the result - pick a team of players who actually want to play for us. Drop Bed, Djenepo, Red etc and give the likes of Salisu, Minamino and Tella a run of games.
