    Vest cost us twice arguably, awful positioning. I find his constant lack of showing any desire to correct his careless mistakes more infuriating than anything though.

    How embarrassing - Pompey have got further in the cup than us.

    Well we get a nice 10 day break.

    We played so well, but it wasn’t to be.

    We March On.

    Ive said for ages about ****ing all this football off, it for me is as bent as F1 has been for ****ing years, and only ever works in favour of the top clubs.

    After the penalty and other **** decisions at Anfield and now this, thank **** we arent playing for a couple of weeks.

    Their second goal was not offside, but the third was because Son was a cheat in my view.
    We strugggle to close out games, but plenty of positives to take from today... don’t want the break now do we ?

    We played so well for so much of the game.

    If we can match the Liverpool first half performance, and the majority of today's, we'll be doing pretty well by the end of the season.



    Meanwhile that penalty - how can it be a penalty if the GK makes no attempt to bring a man down but Son decides to dangle his leg there for far longer than is a natural running action :(

    Despite the disappointment, I just can’t help getting out my old sandals.
    Whisper it quietly, but we looked like the old Saints for the first 3/4 of that match- and by old, I mean Pochettino/Koeman standard. One touch, high pressing, pass-and-then-move-to-get-the-return-ball kind of good. For me, that was one of the performances of the season.

    We're a very good team that can't defend for a full match, the leaky defence should've been nailed down in January but too late now.

    Play that well and all we get out of it is injuries to Long and prowse.

    Feels like a punch to the gut.

    ^^^^
    100%

    Not trying to over egg a bit of positivity, but we are a good side now.

    Actually, I thought we defended well for most of the game. This was Spurs away?

    Don't think Vestergaard was to blame for either goals. Romeu and Hojbjerg went walkies for the second, and on the pen Stephens and Bednarek were nowhere to be seen with Sons run in behind.

    Seen it 5 times and form the camera angles I cant see an contact on Son. Not saying there wasnt, but its not visible from what they showed on the stream.

    Gutted tbh.

    Vestergaard.

    But awesome goal by Ings and set up from Redmond. Applauded at home on my own :D

    7 goals conceded in the last two matches when we were arguably (definately) the better team kind of proves my point.

    We need to get better defensive depth and that has been the case for a long time now IMO.

    In a nutshell, the difference between now and the first 10 games is this; pass from defence, await return to the same place, as opposed to now, pass forward, immediately move forward to give an opportunity for a 1-2 and attack. That’s it.
