Cracking atmosphere from first to last. If only we'd played with that spirit and tightness at the back for the rest of a very uncomfortable season. Hoedt's best game since Palace away and Yoshida and Stephens were very good too. Shame about the last seconds but thankfully it didn't dampen spirits although I had a sudden flash of horror as I imagined Swansea had had a good second half and won 11-2. As many (including players) have said, this season has been a serious reminder that we can't rest on laurels and cruise to 8th. I hope most of the players stay and build on the last few weeks and that we get one or two new folk in including a proven striker. We've basically got a good squad (with one or two vacancies available) that have not played well enough all season until the last few weeks. With the change of manager came a change of heart.

Excellent team spirit. Hojbjerg's best game for Saints. The system seems to work, will it continue under Hughes next season? We deserved at least a point against the Champions. Well done Saints.

Poor match with hardly any serious efforts on goal. A bore draw would have been about right. Hughes has certainly tightened us up at the back but with a pathetic front line we have no chance of winning matches against the likes of Man C. Outcome was more or less inevitable.

Hoedt & Hojberg were simple outstanding

lots to look forward to next season
playing eight at the back every game & then having to listen to the management afterwards

NO INVESTMENT SINCE 1885 & a few people making huge sums of money then telling us do as you are told

Saints can't seem to get a brake against Man City last minute of extra time again,but we are back again next year and have a feeling we will much better. Great effort from the lads shame we could not get a point out of the game though, but l am encouraged for next year.Coyr.

Redmond was so bad he made JWP look like Messi when he came on.

Congratulations to not only Mark Hughes and the players but everybody involved with and/or supporting the club and a big thank You to Manolo Gabbiadini for the one goal of the match and to Alex McCarthy for a copy of his world class save against Everton.
As Nail biting affair as expected. The players and Hughes showed courage and believe and job well done.
I am so glad avoiding being a nerve reck until the final whistle on sunday and avoiding depression there after.
It´s tough being a Saints fan sometimes , but it has been my club for almost 40 years and will forever be <3

Simply - get the fvck in there !!

Set up to frustrate in the first half - but apart from 2 great Austin chances, us fans were the only ones frustrated !!

Much better in 2nd half and the injury to Bed probably did us a favour, as it meant putting an extra man further up the pitch and we were more organised at the back - winning headers instead of everyone leaving it for everyone else !!

On another night, Austin could have had a hatrick and we could have also scored from Long, Tadic and Gab. We had by far the better chances and Swans didn't really create many clear cut chances - so we can see why they are where they are !!

Great atmosphere and support from the Saints fans and superb to see the players so pumped when they came over at the end. Loads of shirts into the crowd and Charlie launched his boots into the disabled section !! Only moan apart from the hotel and bus fiascos, was the Booing from the Swans fans as Bednarek was being stretchered off !! (Not even 2 x M4 diversions could ruin the journey home !!)

That was nerve-shreddingly tense. We deserved to win and Hughes has definitely brought a more common sense approach. I need a day or two to get used to the fact that we are NOT going down! Well done Saints and all the fans that were there.

Glad to see that the swing needed is 10, not a paltry 9. I think Man City will have to do most of the work on that because Swansea don't look like they are going to put 5 or 6 against anyone.

Shit, put off for a day commenting on the match. Decent effort against a half hearted team. Just grateful we don't have the difficult run in that Huddersfield and wba have, as they have both picked up great PTS in difficult places. Can you imagine saints playing man u, spuds, man city and keeping a clean sheet? Everton on beach mode and we only put one chance away. The ref made several bad decisions but Everton were not interested until the end and we didn't put them to the sword. I'm tired and worn down by this season and don't feel like I understand what I'm supporting anymore. We need 2 goals at Swansea otherwise what has been happening for the last few months will happen. COYRs, together as one.

Sadly, Lady Luck stayed away today again. Where has she been all season? (Please turn up on tuesday in Wales!).
So sorry for the lads and the fans that we were robbed in the end.

That would have been the most deserved Saints away win of the season.

We looked well organized and dangerous on the counter.

Terrible refereeing in key moments. Redmond DID NOT commit a foul close to the goal line in the Everton half in extra time, and Redmond should have been allowed to carry on with the ball in a potential big chance creating situation for Saints. But no. Moss felt he had to give a free kick and he even allowed Everton to take the free kick super quickly, several meters away from the correct place.

McCarthy was awesome. One (and only one) great save required - from Baines´ free kick. Several good cross clearances and collections. He looked like England national team material, and Southgate was watching from the stands.

Still, a massive point, and we have some momentum with us when we play Swansea on tuesday.
If we win that game, we are safe.
If we loose, we have to beat City, while Huddersfield loose to Chelsea and Arsenal.

We are still very much alive.

COYS <3

We are not having the luck. We deserved to win but it ended up a lot worse than if it had been the 0-0 it looked for a long time it was goung to be.

Why oh why did Bertrand do the only thing that could possibly allow them to score in the 20 remaining seconds? Also Moss was the usual bag of sh1te giving them that free kick against Redmond in the corner and then letting them take it from the wrong place. He was guessing - the linesman didn't flag.

Also why did Cedric have to go down for 80 seconds at the start of injury time. It just gives the idiot referee the excuse he needs. Having said that it wasn't the time that was the problem. There was FIVE seconds left when that ball hit the net. Yoshi's first yellow was unfair but he was still an idiot to lunge in for the second.

My nerves are shredded now - and we've got to go through it all again on Tuesday. Swansea wont be as obliging as Everton but maybe we will have a bit of LUCK for a change.

I would have accepted a draw before the match. We can still survive. Results like this are why we are where we are.
