Woohoo! Great result. Anyone know why JRod want on the bench tonight?


#3

He want on de bench cause he not on de bench

Is the only reason I can find.


#4

A total performance if you ask me, never under significant pressure and we could have scored more if we showed more aggression.


#5

Nathaniel who? We look like we have found another little gem in seesaw.

Wanayama and Mane had huge first halves.

Looking good

It was a great occasion, even if the football was a little ropey in the second half and that we’re not quite there yet. It was something of a surprise for them to threaten when they did, because for the most part, it simply didn’t feel like they had a route to goal. By the second half, and certainly the third goal, most of Itchen North was in a party mood.

Lovely strike from Pelle. Should have had a penalty for the Yoshida incident, I think. Let’s hope Clasie isn’t too crocked, but if there is any time to lose a player to injury, it’s while you can still operate in the transfer market to address it.


#8

I think we took our foot off of the gas in the second half hence them coming back into it.

If we’d kept up our level the whole match I think Chris Perry’s comments about it being a “lucky” 3-nil would have held no water.

Mane looking impressive again, Cedric was good, excellent save from Steklenberg and he looked quite assured.


#9

Mind you I thought their player Smipe was good…fuckin’ everywhere. Gonna have to watch him in the return.


#10

Yeah, you’re dead right there. Some of the time it seemed as if there ten of him on the pitch.


#11

Well done you mighty Saints. :laughing:

Taking into account…first real competitive game of season…team coming together very nicely.

Liking the look of GK Stek , RB Cedric Soares and FW Jaunmi…Both Cedric and Jaunmi have that star quality…I had between the age of 7 and 10…where did it all go wrong for old ottery :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Although Clasie has taken stick from some Saints supporters…he did a lot of good work, before injury, alongside top class Victor…

I consider these players high quality additions to the squad.

Sadio Mane is already showing what an absolute star he is. :cool:

Very special mention to Matt Targett…played a good game and will be a top class understudy to Ryan Bertrand when he returns…Looking forward to Sunday. :laughing:

NEW SIGNINGS :smile:

COYS

RK and staff…Well done.

Great result; great night in our history; wish I’d been there.

As Ottery says, it’s good to see the squad getting up to competive-match-speed; hopefully, this will give us an edge over our opponents in the first few Premier League fixtures - I reckon this could be one of the plus points to be gained from our Europa campaign.
