Sunderland Away won 4 – 0

The very first minute of the game at Sunderland looked to have encompassed Southampton’s attitude this season: they moved the ball purposely to the edge of the penalty area but failed to get in a shot (not even a cross) before retreating back downfield, ending with a hack away by Forster and both possession and […]

West Ham Home Lost 1 – 3

There was an increasing fear that a slump is becoming a crisis even before the latest disappointment – defeat at home to West Ham, Jose Fonte and all. It did begin so well, though, with big money signing Gabbiadini converting after breaking the offside trap in the 12th minute – and what a good finish […]

Swansea Away Lost 1 – 2

Good news in the transfer deadline shake-down – we’ve signed a goalkeeper! Before the game at Swansea was out, we’d also confirmed the acquisition of an international striker, but obviously far too late for him to be involved in this latest failure to secure any points from what looked to be a very winnable game. […]

Arsenal Home FA Cup 4th Round Lost 5 – 0

It may have been the 4th round of the FA Cup but the line-ups chosen by Southampton and Arsenal would have been more appropriate to the Checkatrade Trophy, had Arsenal bothered to enter it. I think the players are more robust than manager Puel believes, but this time I have more sympathy with his rotation […]

Liverpool Away EFL Cup 2nd Leg Won 1 – 0

The chances of succeeding in the League Cup semi final at Liverpool, whether in 90 minutes, 120 minutes or even after penalties, seemed to depend on whether Van Dijk was fit enough to play – and he wasn’t. There was no sign of the fog we’d seen in the south of England, so a postponement […]

Leicester Home Won 3 – 0

When an upcoming League Cup semi final put paid to Monday night football against Leicester, I didn’t expect having to get up early on a Sunday morning to scrape ice off the car in order to make a noon kick off. But the timing seemed to suit Saints as they recorded their first league win, […]

Norwich Home FA Cup 3rd Round Replay Won 1 – 0

Both Southampton and Norwich made wholesale changes to their League line-ups for their F.A. Cup replay, which came as no surprise to anyone, certainly not those who stayed away from a meagre crowd. Those who did turn up showed little vocal interest in the proceedings, and with the Kingsland Stand closed, there was a ‘youth […]

Burnley Away Lost 1 – 0

Saints’ last appearance at Burnley resulted in an undeserved 1-0 defeat after the visitors dominated play and missed several chances, including a penalty. At the moment missing opportunities is not as critical as a failure to create them, but trudging out of Turf Moor again with no goals and no points was another disappointment, although […]

Liverpool Home EFL Cup Semi Final First Leg Won 1 – 0

Southampton didn’t consider the unsettled Fonte for selection for the EFL Cup game against Liverpool, which seemed a self-imposed handicap as well as calling the player’s professional attitude into question. In addition, and like Morocco, they are again without Boufal through injury, but otherwise the starting team looked to be the strongest possible (and as […]
