    Never done one of these, so here it goes.

    In the great words of @Saintmagic , or something along the lines of… “We’re **** and hope we lose”

    Saints off the back of a hard fought loss at Anfield whilst Leicester scraped past the pathetic Watford at home. The same Watford we dominated a few weeks ago.

    Unsure of injury concerns apart from Stuey not being available.

    Here’s hoping Vardy pulls a hamstring whilst scoring an own goal.

    Referee: Robert Jones.
    Assistants:
    Eddie Smart, Derek Eaton.
    Fourth official:
    Simon Hooper.
    VAR:
    Andy Madley.
    Assistant VAR: Adrian Holmes.

    One of these days, our chances will go in the net. Hopefully it's Wednesday.

    9-0 Saints.

    I’ll take anything other than a 9-0 loss. One of the worse experiences of my life that match…. Awful weather and a **** show of a performance. I walked out at 7-0 <laugh>

    I remember when the first went in and Berts was sent off. I turned to my mum and said I’m leaving at 7!

    I’d like to see Tella start.

    Leicester were impressive at the weekend and Vardy was in lethal form. Maybe a team now hitting form and perhaps not the best time to be playing them; a little like Liverpool at the weekend. However, being at home, we hopefully will get a point. Any less would be a disappointment. Rogers is a canny manager, l hope Ralph has thought through his plans carefully for both halves and learnt lessons from his poor tactics at the weekend.

    You mean both halves for the same match then.

    I don’t recall ever saying “I hope we lose” my words do tend to be great though.

    I think we will lose

    As would I. Tella is not the finished product by any means, but he does have a tendency to create good chances. That we'll probably waste, but still.

    Not feeling optimistic
    We just aren’t as good without Stu and that’s been the case for too long
    Defence is better these days but struggles against real quality eg Vardy and Madison
    Macca in a poor patch
    Strikers can’t score
    Bench offering no impact subs
    JWP not same player as last season
    Diallo inconsistent
    Tino and Sally playing well isn’t enough
    We are capable of being so good, but are currently so bad

    We need to pull a result out of the bag against this bad run of form to get some confidence through the team

    Macca
    Tino Lyanco Sally KWP
    Oriel JWP
    Tella Redders

    In fairness this 'bad run of form' currently stands at one n a half matches.

    Not expecting anything tomorrow though mind.

    FWIW I think we will struggle tomorrow as Leicester do have some very good players. But where is this bad form you speak of?

    Whether you look at our last 5/6 games, we have only had 1 bad result and that was against Norwich - losing against Liverpool isn't bad form, it is par. Other than that we have been on bloody good form! Screenshot_20211130-081844_Chrome.jpg

    And we still have more than one point per game played, which is a healthy position to be in. I am still confident we will reach 20 points by Christmas.

    Don’t worry, there’s absolutely no chance we’ll struggle against Leicester today.

    You made me panic for a second there though <laugh>

    If they score 4 or 5 there’s no way we’re getting a point!
