Match Reports

Burnley Home Won 3 – 2

Ralph brought back fit again duo Ings and Walcott to face Burnley, and he also had Ward-Prowse available despite an injury problem on international duty, while Forster continued in goal and was called into action in the very first minute to touch Wood’s shot past the post. Play switched to the other end in a […]

FA Cup Quarter Final Bournemouth Away Won 0 – 3

Ralph sent out his strongest available team to face Bournemouth in the Cup – an obvious decision most of us would say, but there are certainly coaches out there who would have taken a different approach. Under ‘old normal’ conditions, the lucky 11,000 to cram into that tiny stadium would have created a great atmosphere, […]

Brighton Home Lost 1 – 2

Forster replaced McCarthy in the team to face Brighton, and that was no surprise given their respective stats of late – it had really been a surprise when McCarthy got the call last time out, allegedly because of his better skills with the ball at his feet, although the evidence for that is becoming thin. […]

Chelsea Home Drew 1 – 1

No Walker-Peters to face Chelsea, and Armstrong has developed a worrying injury-after-every-90-minutes habit as well, but Salisu did enough last time out to retain his place in… well, what was it? A back four with Bednarek at right back? A back three maybe? Or even a back five, with Djenepo expected to contribute as well? […]

Wolverhampton Away FA Cup 5th Round Won 0 – 2

Back in the day, Thursday teatime meant Blue Peter, but this is 2021 so it was necessary to tune in to 5th round Cup action from Wolverhampton. Saints made five changes for this important game so were without Minamino (cup tied), Vestergaard (maybe not ready for three games in eight days?), McCarthy (not featuring in […]

Newcastle Away Lost 3 – 2

In normal times, most of the weekend of the match at Newcastle would have been spent fretting about how the weather might affect transport. But these are not normal times, and after casting an envious eye over 30,000 fans enjoying the BBL final at the Sydney Cricket Ground (without a mask in sight), the best […]

Manchester United Away Lost 9 – 0

BT covered the return game with Manchester United, and the monthly subscription hasn’t run out – a piece of luck, eh? It was tempting to switch off anyway once Southampton announced a team now even more deprived of players through injuries sustained in the latest game, and also missing Valery and Vokins following deadline loan deals […]

Arsenal Home Lost 1 – 3

In those heady days when the club sat on the top of the league, realists could see that the squad wasn’t strong enough to sustain anything approaching that position, and the return fixture with Arsenal was proof. After defeating a sub-strength Gunners XI in the cup three days earlier, Saints found themselves without both first […]

Arsenal Home FA Cup 4th Round Won 1 – 0

A rash of games on BT, plus the televised climax of a competition called The Big Bash (if you have to ask, you won’t be interested in the answer) brought on a moment of weakness that led to the purchase of a monthly sports pass. So it was that Saturday lunchtime became time for an […]

West Ham Home Drew 0 – 0

After the team drew a blank at Fulham (and didn’t play particularly well by all accounts) there was a surprisingly early return for Ings against West Ham, and an expected one for Romeu after suspension – but no place for still-injured Vestergaard and Redmond. This was back behind closed doors of course, doors that had […]
