Thread: Complete meltdown on Saints message board

    Re: Complete meltdown on Saints message board

    I wonder if some Saints players are thinking about their relegation release clauses. They can’t be happy.

    Rumour was, last season Southampton would have been in big trouble because a lot of their players didn't have them in their contracts. They'd finished 8th, 7th, 6th and 8th so they didn't think it was a possibility.

    Also, re Bamba the amnesty is the second weekend in April, so he should be OK.

    I don't really care if Bamba gets banned for his celebrations. Moments like that are why we've all travelled the length and breadth of England to support City, so if he has to get banned for sharing a few seconds of sheer elation with the fans then so be it.

    It can be difficult taking the next step, from say 15th up to top 10, that so many clubs seem to lose their way and slowly drift towards relegation having lost everything that made their clubs special. Swansea dismantled the Swansea way over the course of 4/5 managers, Stoke was a raucous place to go but went down very quietly, and now Southampton are another that seems to be a million miles from what made them a good club. It may or not happen this year, and if it doesn't this manager may return them to better days, but they're not in a position to think they're above this any more.

    Been on the message boards of the clubs that we’ve beaten this season and they all seem unanimous ‘How did we get beat by the worst team in the division?’ They desperately need to look in the mirror, we’ve won because we were better than them, simple as that. It’s like the bloke who’s banned from 7 pubs, it’s obviously not the landlords’ faults. The 7 wins we’ve got is the fault of those 7 teams, they couldn’t match us, simple as that! Worst team, my arse, look at the table!!!!

    On the other hand, our players will stick with NW come what may, as has already been shown. Unlike Saints, our fans are 100% behind the team and management. I just hope no-one gets seriously hurt in our goal celebrations.
    I think that man for man none of our players wouldn’t get in their teams. It’s the team ethic that’s keeping us moving forward.

    We’ve played a right back up front
    We’ve our best defender is 33
    Our best player is a loan

    Just a ridiculous set of circumstances and one I absolutely love

    Our players are all brilliant. It’s a team game and that’s the point.
    Niasse seems at home in the team already and we are lucky about that. But again it’s the whole point the others accept him and he accepts going off when needed.
    It makes the fact Emiliano never got to experience our team ethic all the sadder.

    We are a tough unit.
    The next 5 games will determine our success or failure and what a position to be in with two home games on the bounce.

    Re the earlier comment I also agree Sol was totally entitled to celebrate. They will only stop that happening if they make it an automatic red.
    Expect that soon. They love to spoil football.

Lalana and Lambert tore u a new one that day. Keeping their best players and investing would have made them move forward. Instead they appear to be doing a Swansea....
    To be fair, I don't think a club like Southampton has much of a chance of keeping their players when teams like Liverpool, Man Utd etc come calling.

    This is where the team ethic is a bonus for us, I very much doubt any of the ‘cherry picking’ clubs are looking at any of our individuals. Obviously would love to see a few top class players in a City shirt but that’s for the future, at the moment I prefer the collective.

    Sol is averaging a booking every other game since Xmas.

    God I like the position we are in. I told my Marrakech caddies we were in the do dos 14 days ago. Now I have real hope again.
    ..it'll be 2 games

    Redmond definitely.

    Bertrand is good too.

    Not over impressed with the rest

    I was about 12 feet away and yeah it was awesome.

    Players and fans as one.

    As it should be

    I don’t think their rubbish tactics help. Saints like Bournemouth were more interested in keeping the ball than hurting us.. pass, pass, pass and getting nowhere.

    Our shape in both games has been excellent.

    These sides desperately want to copy Arsenal and Man City, but don’t have the pace or the speed of thought to do it properly.

    Ironically their goal came from a flick on from a battering ram from a scuffed set piece.


    Better players are all very well, but if they play the game at a snail’s pace and are shot shy like Southampton were then it’s all a waste of money

    I was sat in the Southampton posh seats and they were saying "we will hammer this lot" after 10 minutes of the first half
