    I'm not even angry. Just numb.

    I know we mentioned it last night but I do want to say again how brilliant the support was in the second half from the remaining fans. Not that the team deserved it.


    Refreshing to know that we haven't completely lost our soul yet.

    As bad it was last night we only lost 3 points. Doesn't excuse what happened but I'm just going to erase it from my memory. I'm actually almost relieved we've got Man City next. Better than a team we're expected to beat in some ways as we've got 2 games to just focus on restoring pride rather than the pressure of getting a result.

    Some people are contesting that the blame rest solely with him. You yourself haven’t yet offered anything other than blame on Ralph. I picked up on your post pre game for that very reason. Watching the game last night I saw the worst saints performance ever right from the whistle and I saw nothing at the start that made me think Ralph had screwed up. Same side that drew with wolves. Absolutely unrecognisable.

    The prospect of Brexit, the relentless rain, getting soaked, 0-9 score line, my aching leg and the pains of old age, traffic jams, late buses or no buses, the prospect of winter, ****ing about with the clocks, litter strewn streets in a city that is so ****ty it is reminiscent of a teenager's bedroom, the prospect of trick or treat kids banging on my door, people's total indifference to homelessness, callous and uncaring society, lying politicians, selfish money grabbing business people, an arsehole for Prime Minister, the rise of fascism, a football manager who has lost his way, a spineless leader of the labour party, political disenfranchisement, **** all but that ****ty strictly on the BBC, poorly funded NHS, no Coppers on the beat, scamming and internet crime, cold calls, I am rapidly losing the will to live.
    That is why I am pissed of today not because of losing a lousy football match.

    Haven’t read through so apologies if someone has posted anything similar.
    Is it right, when he was asked if he knew what the score was, Ralph answered “nein”.

    It’s being so cheerful keeps you going. Agree with you on all points. You forgot to include social media swamp. Have been expecting a humiliation for Saints for quite a while, just didn’t expect it to be Lester or 9.

    I don`t get it - last week, we defended as a team and restricted a good Wolves side to 4 attempts all game. Same team this week at home - a shambles.

    The sending off and Yan having the worst game of his life. That was the foundation of what happened. But others went into hiding pretty damn quick.

    I knew I shouldn't have ribbed the Spurs fan I work with about their 7-2 home defeat.
    Can't wait for work on monday.

    Sacking Ralph will solve nothing. He needs a right hand man, and he needs his mojo back. Losing 0-9 is not acceptable, but it’s happened now and it’s only 3 points. I expected us to lose to Leicester anyway, obviously the manor and scoreline are a bit of a shock. Ralph takes some blame, the players take a lot of blame and I’d say the owners do too...but they don’t care either way. The players and manager we have do have enough to stay up if they start working together again like they were second half of last season. But it is ultimately a temporary fix, staying up for another season. The club needs a massive shake up and it starts with new owners,..please.

    You have a point. I thought that constantly losing/changing managers was a poor way to go, but what’s made his situation worse is that HE keeps changing the team, before, during the match, not sure the players are really buying into his ‘way’ at present, and I can almost understand that. BUT they should not have capitulated like that, which suggests deeper problems. Is Ings happy at being pulled off? Some think at half time something happened there with him?

    If he goes.

    Get Adkins in.

    Actually no.

    Don’t want his legend status tarnished because of the ****wit we have as an owner.
