    PEH huffs and puffs but does little else.

    The front 2 seem to have nothing resembling a budding partnership whatsoever.

    We should be stretching their back three with quick balls into the channels, but there is no confidence to play that pass.

    I can see Watford getting a couple more on the break as we get more desperate.

    I am just going to put out there that I have played with a ton of Djenepo's in my time. Crappy footballers with a bag of tricks who do something great every ten games but having them in the team costs you in the other 9.

    Awful passer. Bad decisions. Sloppy in general. Tackling back woeful.

    Midfield is outnumbered.
    Move redmond more central or get Ings to drop back into a number 10 role.

    I'm really looking forward to yet another 45 minutes watching our defense play the ball aimlessly to one another across the back, whilst taking just enough touches to allow our opponents to set themselves against any conceivable attack we could muster. It's that kind of dynamic, action packed and difficult to predict approach that will get us out of this hole.

    It's not yet 2:30, so propriety suggests that I don't start drinking gin, but propriety isn't a Saints fan.

    For a long time I’ve been defending Ralph but something must change. My hope was that with better players he might the man to take us forward.

    I’m not sure how much more we can get out of this group of players. Perhaps we ought to be scoring more but Stephens and co are very limited.

    The sad thing is that Saints this season have even defeated Fran. She is so far behind the sofa she has fallen into Narnia. That is when you know the end is nigh!

    How awful is it that Charlie Austin is more than likely going to be playing in a higher league than us next season

    Even some.of the most positive have pretty much given up. I include myself in that, unfortunately.

    Now I've been thinking Ralph needs to go for sometime. Are the majority of fans still backing him?

    It's clear that the team are a bag of bollocks, but surely he must take some responsibility for coaching/selection etc.

    positivity and negativity mean nothing in the face of this inadequacy.

    it’s incredibly hard at this point to have any positivity. Every good performance doesn’t get any points and then we follow it up with appalling performances like this one.
