Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino said his team were taught a “great lesson” after nearly throwing away a three-goal lead against Norwich.

Saints led 3-0 with five minutes left at St Mary’s, but then gifted the Canaries two goals in a matter of seconds to set up a nervous finale.

Sam Gallagher’s strike deep into injury time ensured a 4-2 win, but Pochettino said they must learn from their late lapse in concentration.

“It’s a great lesson that we have to learn from today’s game,” he said. “We’re a young side that’s still growing, and the main lesson today is that, obviously, the game is not finished until the final whistle has blown.

“We’re well satisfied with the game at 3-0, but it goes to show that when you lose a little bit of focus, you lay your guard down, we basically made two quick mistakes.

“We conceded two soft goals and, again, it is a lesson we have to learn.”

Until the 2 CHEAP goals, I don't think Norwich had a WING or a prayer. After that, our defence got in a bit of a FLAP. Then Davis and Gallagher FLEW up the other end and made us all a bit more CHIRPY.

Okay, pub-o-clock. Night all!

We were outrageously overconfident against a very poor side. We took them apart down the right side early on then let them back in. Why didn't MoPo tell them to keep getting down the right where Clyne had their full back for pace and there was acres of space. Arthur's kicking was worse than my mum's and the two defensive errors at the end were pretty unprofessional. That game could and should have been 4 or 5 nil. Some major a$$ kicking is needed by the manager after that. I think we missed Corkie too. JWP gave the ball away a couple of times early on and a better side might have punished us. Overall he did OK though and put in a good shift. JRod did well and Morgan too. Likewise Dejan. All in all we can do a lot better.

Great start, then it all went a bit flaccid (Dejan won't mind) until half time. 2nd half was better, SRL was back in form, JayRod was excellent, as was Morgan. Lallana looked off form & we missed Wanyama/Cork. JWP is too lightweight to play that role.

Stupid, casual mistakes nearly cost us dear, but then young Sam popped up in the last minute - really pleased for him.

Overall, a good afternoon in the sun, good atmosphere & six goals!

A good win. My blood pressure went through the roof at the end though. Fonte and Artur fannied around far too much today. Why oh why doesn't Artur just launch it up field instead of putting players under pressure at the back. I realize it's the way we play, out from the back but, it's suicidal at times. Anyway, very happy for Rickie and Sam to both come off the bench and score and we thoroughly deserved the win after dominating the match. Now let's beat the spuds next weekend.

Great 3 points and a really good performance from most of the team. However, extremely disappointed with Fonte, error after error - cannot continue, really needs to pull his socks up for the rest of the season and then be replaced, too much of a liability at this level. Boruc, Boruc, Boruc my opinion of him has not changed get rid of him. On the other hand my hat goes of to JR, what a game, really good performance gave 100% looking forward to seeing more of that. Although Luke made some good runs but sometimes he needs to put the pass through rather than running with it and then losing it. Up and down game but fab 3 points.

Possession football is only OK if you are good enough to keep it. Then again I thought we were a bit hoofy at times today, not a lot of good while Lambo is sat on the bench! Although there is a thin margin between a pin point pass and a hoof into no mans land!

Osprey .not moaning but Fonte was poor quality from the start and this infiltrated the whole defence , and with his complete lack of forward play throughout , his game just adds unnecessary pressure on the back 4 especially when the other team are pushing up. We need more competition for his place as he plays like he is an automatic choice.

F Fan says...

Very sloppy performance today – very similar to Palace last week. In both games , once we went one up we took our foot of the pedal – began playing like the game was won. And that is a common theme throughout the season – where we have lost more points from a winning position than any other team in the league.

It was in truth a rather shabby display. Boruc, Fonte, JWP - all sloppy at times and, most unlike him, Davies too. Morgan and Rodriguez best on the pitch. The latter did his Brazil chances no harm, especially when he went wider after Lambert came on. Lambert played his best 35 minutes in a long while too.

We are in with a shout of 7th and possibly a Europa League place, especially with Newcastle, Everton and Man U to come to St Marys but there is a tactical problem to be addressed, perhaps more of a psychological one – how to kill off games once we go ahead.
Very sloppy performance today – very similar to Palace last week. In both games , once we went one up we took our foot of the pedal – began playing like the game was won. And that is a common theme throughout the season – where we have lost more points from a winning position than any other team in the league. We were fortunate to go in ahead at half time.

Giving him space means not putting forward selection ideas or turning up at the training ground in a track suit with your initials on. Motivating means pumping up the individual. You're not daft, just look at MoPos body language.

Interesting how MoPo mentioned that we're a young side when defending our lapse near the end but Fonte and Guly are 2 of our veterans! Oh well, definitely a lesson learnt, I was buzzing up until they got their 1st goal, then I was reminded of the Villa and Spurs matches. In truth though we never looked like losing the game and we were a class apart from Norwich. great to see Sam Gallagher bag a goal and put the game to bed. That will only give him a boost and spur him on to keep working hard.

The best thing about the result is that at 3-0 up the moaners and the 'i'm saying something negative so I'm a realist' must have been crying, even ugly was playing well and nearly scored. then MP played a masterstroke and told the players to gift Norwich 2 goals so that the moaners etc could wet themselves with excitement at the prospect of an absolute collapse. Big Sam then ends the game with his first prem goal and sends the moaners back into their misery!
Well except for the usual moaner who knows more about football than the current and past 3 managers, the England manager, every pundit and all of the fans. Remember if everyone else is wrong and your the only one who's right that makes you a realist!

Arthur's kicking was worse than my mum's and the two defensive errors at the end were pretty unprofessional. That game could and should have been 4 or 5 nil. Some major a$$ kicking is needed by the manager after that. I think we missed Corkie too. JWP gave the ball away a couple of times early on and a better side might have punished us. Overall he did OK though and put in a good shift. JRod did well and Morgan too. Likewise Dejan. All in all we can do a lot better.

The result was an indication of how far Saints have come, but still that achilles heel familiar to all long term ( 50 years+) fans persists. We totally outplayed the opposition i.e.Norwich then give away soft goals. Two in this case.

The game requires 100% concentration from the first whistle to the last. Perhaps MoPo should develop a version of ' chessboxing ' for football to help improve the players concentration skills...........?

Right now I think it is far too early to be dissecting every raise of an eyebrow, furrow of a brow or twitch at the corner of the mouth. Surely it is better that Freddy and MoPo get to know how each other likes to operate before making any rash judgements? MoPo has clearly stated in a number of interviews that he is already planning for next season especially with the WC and the number of our talented players that will be involved. Relax and enjoy. I know I am.

Very sloppy performance today – very similar to Palace last week. In both games , once we went one up we took our foot of the pedal – began playing like the game was won. And that is a common theme throughout the season – where we have lost more points from a winning position than any other team in the league.

We were fortunate to go in ahead at half time. Much better after the break, played a higher back line and played off the front foot a bit more. Looked like an easy win and then more sloppy play and we were struggling to keep them from getting an equaliser. Very fortunate slip by their player to get us upfield to get the fourth.

It was in truth a rather shabby display. Boruc, Fonte, JWP - all sloppy at times and, most unlike him, Davies too. Morgan and Rodriguez best on the pitch. The latter did his Brazil chances no harm, especially when he went wider after Lambert came on. Lambert played his best 35 minutes in a long while too.

We are in with a shout of 7th and possibly a Europa League place, especially with Newcastle, Everton and Man U to come to St Marys but there is a tactical problem to be addressed, perhaps more of a psychological one – how to kill off games once we go ahead.
Great Summary.
[quote][p][bold]F Fan[/bold] wrote: Very sloppy performance today – very similar to Palace last week. In both games , once we went one up we took our foot of the pedal – began playing like the game was won. And that is a common theme throughout the season – where we have lost more points from a winning position than any other team in the league. We were fortunate to go in ahead at half time. Much better after the break, played a higher back line and played off the front foot a bit more. Looked like an easy win and then more sloppy play and we were struggling to keep them from getting an equaliser. Very fortunate slip by their player to get us upfield to get the fourth.

Let's hope Dejan,s nuts are ok this morning. Two goalkeepers who may be available in the summer could be Fabianski and Cardiffs "going down" stopper. We need one ..as Boruc looked pretty unhinged yesterday.

Arthur's kicking was worse than my mum's and the two defensive errors at the end were pretty unprofessional. That game could and should have been 4 or 5 nil. Some major a$$ kicking is needed by the manager after that. I think we missed Corkie too. JWP gave the ball away a couple of times early on and a better side might have punished us.

Are you kidding? Sky Sports had JWP as MOTM! We didn't miss Cork or Wanyama as we got plenty of quality cover in midfield.
No not kidding. Try reading what I said. He gave the ball away early on and nearly put us in trouble. Perhaps you chose not to notice. I also said that he put in a good shift and did ok. In my eyes he was nowhere near man of the match.We always miss Corkie and I didn't mention Wanyama. Both would play ahead of JWP if fit as has been proven by recent team selection. I'm also pleased that my idea of team selection is more in line with Mo Po's than yours. Are you related to JWP by any chance?

I would be vey interested in your POVS...
But I think Nat Clyne is still way ahead of Callum Chambers at this stage in there development. Nothing wrong with Callum who will be very good, but Clyne just seems so complete. He's also a great winger and crosser..
Shame he has played more often, cos if he had Woy woud be taking him to Brazil.

if what you mean by "happy clappers" is the fans who support the team whether we win or lose, then you will find a lot of "happy clappers" on here!

we`ve been passing the ball around at the back all season because that's what MP wants them to do. same with AB`s goal kicking, in the first half he was kicking the ball long and it was going out of play, second half he was passing it around the back. do you think he decided to do that by himself whilst sitting in the changing room having an orange slice? no of course not. MP wants us to play like this and disagree with it all you lie but its got us up to 8th so far this season and we could get higher!

I thought, yesterday, JWP was a shadow of the promising player that burst onto the scene early last season. Anyone who thinks he was MotM must have been watching a different game. Oh, and what IS his best position?

That said, he's still young and has heaps of ability and, like others who have not had much game time, he looked rusty rather than poor. What was reasuring is that he got better in the 2nd half and, if he gets a run of games, will keep getting better. For example, look at Clyne; a spell on the bench, a few less than brilliant performances and, yesterday, an above average shift. With Brazil on the horizon, he could yet play himself into Roy's thoughts.

MotM? Morgan or Jay; over the 90 minutes, they were head and shoulders above the rest of the team.

I think JWP plays best in the same position as S. Davis, getting down the right side and whipping those great balls (sorry dejan) into the box. I just don't see him as a central defensive midfielder. he might be able to play as part of a central 3 in front of 2 of spider Big Vic and Cork.
you could be right about him being rusty without game time, I said I thought he was poor yesterday but thinking about it now your more right than I was. I still feel though that Big Vic or Cork would have been expecting fonte to turn and pass back for their first goal, JWP probably expected him to pass to clyne, as did most of us. not faulting JWP for the goal though as mistakes happen, we showed great character to keep playing and not collapsing like we would have in the past, some might call it `being mentally fit`

I just don't see him as a central defensive midfielder. he might be able to play as part of a central 3 in front of 2 of spider Big Vic and Cork. you could be right about him being rusty without game time, I said I thought he was poor yesterday but thinking about it now your more right than I was. I still feel though that Big Vic or Cork would have been expecting fonte to turn and pass back for their first goal, JWP probably expected him to pass to clyne, as did most of us. not faulting JWP for the goal though as mistakes happen, we showed great character to keep playing and not collapsing like we would have in the past, some might call it `being mentally fit` el caballo santos101

Are you kidding? Sky Sports had JWP as MOTM! We didn't miss Cork or Wanyama as we got plenty of quality cover in midfield.
No not kidding. Try reading what I said. He gave the ball away early on and nearly put us in trouble. Perhaps you chose not to notice. I also said that he put in a good shift and did ok. In my eyes he was nowhere near man of the match.We always miss Corkie and I didn't mention Wanyama. Both would play ahead of JWP if fit as has been proven by recent team selection. I'm also pleased that my idea of team selection is more in line with Mo Po's than yours. Are you related to JWP by any chance?
I thought, yesterday, JWP was a shadow of the promising player that burst onto the scene early last season. Anyone who thinks he was MotM must have been watching a different game. Oh, and what IS his best position?

That said, he's still young and has heaps of ability and, like others who have not had much game time, he looked rusty rather than poor. What was reasuring is that he got better in the 2nd half and, if he gets a run of games, will keep getting better. For example, look at Clyne; a spell on the bench, a few less than brilliant performances and, yesterday, an above average shift. With Brazil on the horizon, he could yet play himself into Roy's thoughts.

MotM? Morgan or Jay; over the 90 minutes, they were head and shoulders above the rest of the team.
I thought JWP did enough yesterday, did doze off a couple of times, but what exactly was his position, he was like a chess piece being moved about in different areas of the pitch with no fixed postion allocated. I like his dead ball delivery which we wasted by not attacking the ball in the area, and that short corner routine needs more work on the training ground, you have to remember, if I recall, it was the first start he has had this year, so likely to be a bit rusty.

A good result against a weak team. We have to tighten our defense if we are to compete in the top 8. Strong defense wins championships in all sports, strong offense wins games. Boruc has to go if we are to be serious contenders. Adam was outstanding last week at Palace and this week Ricky stepped in to seal the win. Clyne and Shaw dominant again.

I've noted with interest the comments on here today about JWP. Yet again I note when someone has praised his performance and noted that he was MOTM by Sky a poster question whether the poster informing us of that was related to him? Saintly Soul (who no longer posts on here) was asked the same thing when he praised this lad - why? Is because people don't rate him? Osprey made a good comment recognising that JWP hasn't started for a while. Despite that fact it's interesting to note the statistics in today's Sunday Mirror that out of all the 20 outfield players he covered the most area running just over 8 miles - he even beat Spider. This lad puts in a great shift and I thought played a sweepers role yesterday. He will run all day and has a great engine on him.

Yes early on he misplaced a couple of passes so did other players! Fortunately nothing came of them and on a couple of occasions he made a good block and a good tackle.

His position is central midfield you only have to watch him play for England under 21s. His problem is quite simply that he hasn't played as much as he should have played he's a young professional who is queuing up Behind senior professionals to play. Unlike Shaw he has competition.

JWP IMO is a tremendous talent who, given game time will blossom. I've no donut at all he will captain England and if he stays is a future captain at Saints.

Before anyone post I'm not his Father, brother, Mother, sister or related in anyway. I'm a saints fan who appreciates talent and class when I see it!!!!

Reality in a nutshell.
I thought it summed up all that is good in the pure unpredictability of the game we all love. The first half was a bit dull in patches but the game blossomed into life in the 2nd half. Rickie did himself no harm on a day when Andy Carroll nutted one in for Spammers. Young Sam had a landmark moment and is our future quickly developing into our present. The defensive errors show that there is always room for improvement, don’t forget Kolo Toure’s one man bloopers highlights reel for Liverpool and they are in the top 4.

The only one's to put us under pressure yesterday were ourselves.
I understand the manager wants to play the ball out from the back , but this has been on the cards for a long time.
The way Artur gives the ball to players under pressure and the way we are casual at passing along the back line needlesly puts us at risk.
At no time yesterday did Norwich threaten us.
It has been noticeable the last few months how teams back off us letting us play in front of them and backwards almost waiting for us to make an error.
If we can cut out the risky play we will dominate more games.
Lets hope United lose today and come the last game of the season we beat them at home to finish above them in seventh.
Well done to Rickie for his goal and nice for Shearer to come out on his side in the Carroll or him debate.
Overall well done Saints onward and upward.

I haven't got a `donut` either, just teasing we all suffer from premature predictive texting ;0)

JWP could well be a future England captain but not as a defensive central midfielder. his crossing is one of the best parts of his game, and there are many, and it would be wasted if he is holding back in defensive midfield. as I said he plays better for saints on the right where he can get down the line and h links up well with clyne or chambers. he could play in front of cork, Big Vic, Spider as a playmaker spraying the ball left and right and getting forwards into the box. that would mean saints playing a style and formation and I cant see MP doing that as it would affect lallas ability to go anywhere.
so JWP will have to fight S. Davis for that spot.

if your not related to JWP are you actually him? only joking!

Davis for that spot. if your not related to JWP are you actually him? only joking! el caballo santos101

"blinkered happy clappers"

whenever you use that phrase you lose all credibility!
if what you mean by "happy clappers" is the fans who support the team whether we win or lose, then you will find a lot of "happy clappers" on here!

we`ve been passing the ball around at the back all season because that's what MP wants them to do. same with AB`s goal kicking, in the first half he was kicking the ball long and it was going out of play, second half he was passing it around the back. do you think he decided to do that by himself whilst sitting in the changing room having an orange slice? no of course not. MP wants us to play like this and disagree with it all you lie but its got us up to 8th so far this season and we could get higher!
Exactly! Even when we lose the loyal fans will still support the team and not drone on about what went wrong. And if we notice some negative comments, don't be surprised if we quote parts of your posts to prove our points.

By the way you should have said Happy Clappers ARE the fans, not Happy Clappers IS the fans. Just a minor grammatical error which needed correcting.
Blimey Ospers, well done on the lotto win, but suggest you go out and spend your money on a better Harry Potter invisibility cloak.

First of all Bob , Saintly Soul posted on here 2/3 weeks ago so he is still around. Secondly he does not get slated for his championing of JWP , which even you must admit is over the top, but for his abuse of Adam Lallana. I agree with most of the others on here JWP did not deserve MOM yesterday but as most have said he is a very promising player with a bright future. I find it hard to believe that any players parent would feel it necessary to post on this forum. I have heard Radio Solent presenter Adam Blackmore read out a text message from someone he said was JWPs mother saying "Get JWP on". None of this ,as I've said before , is doing this young man any favours with his team mates. If any of these people are really friends or relatives of his they would do him a great favour by letting him stand on his own two feet after all he is a grown man not a child.

This lad puts in a great shift and I thought played a sweepers role yesterday. He will run all day and has a great engine on him.

Yes early on he misplaced a couple of passes so did other players! Fortunately nothing came of them and on a couple of occasions he made a good block and a good tackle.

His position is central midfield you only have to watch him play for England under 21s. His problem is quite simply that he hasn't played as much as he should have played he's a young professional who is queuing up Behind senior professionals to play. Unlike Shaw he has competition.

JWP IMO is a tremendous talent who, given game time will blossom. I've no donut at all he will captain England and if he stays is a future captain at Saints.

Before anyone post I'm not his Father, brother, Mother, sister or related in anyway. I'm a saints fan who appreciates talent and class when I see it!!!!

Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.

Are you kidding? Sky Sports had JWP as MOTM! We didn't miss Cork or Wanyama as we got plenty of quality cover in midfield.
No not kidding. Try reading what I said. He gave the ball away early on and nearly put us in trouble. Perhaps you chose not to notice. I also said that he put in a good shift and did ok. In my eyes he was nowhere near man of the match.We always miss Corkie and I didn't mention Wanyama. Both would play ahead of JWP if fit as has been proven by recent team selection. I'm also pleased that my idea of team selection is more in line with Mo Po's than yours. Are you related to JWP by any chance?
I thought, yesterday, JWP was a shadow of the promising player that burst onto the scene early last season. Anyone who thinks he was MotM must have been watching a different game. Oh, and what IS his best position?

That said, he's still young and has heaps of ability and, like others who have not had much game time, he looked rusty rather than poor. What was reasuring is that he got better in the 2nd half and, if he gets a run of games, will keep getting better. For example, look at Clyne; a spell on the bench, a few less than brilliant performances and, yesterday, an above average shift. With Brazil on the horizon, he could yet play himself into Roy's thoughts.

MotM? Morgan or Jay; over the 90 minutes, they were head and shoulders above the rest of the team.
I thought JWP did enough yesterday, did doze off a couple of times, but what exactly was his position, he was like a chess piece being moved about in different areas of the pitch with no fixed postion allocated. I like his dead ball delivery which we wasted by not attacking the ball in the area, and that short corner routine needs more work on the training ground, you have to remember, if I recall, it was the first start he has had this year, so likely to be a bit rusty.
Well my tongue in cheek comment about JWP's relatives posting in his defence seems to have sparked a bit of debate. I was simply reponding to a comment about my remark, which I thought was reasonably complementary and didn't intend to put him down in any way . Yes he is being played out of position and he worked very hard as he always does. Nevertheless he DID give the ball away a few times early on and he was also a million miles from man of the match. Just because one pundit decides he was doesn't make it so. I have no idea who the particular pundit was but lets remember that Mark Lawrenson is one and how often is he right. I'm with Strassie. JRod or Morgan. Difficult to decide as their jobs are so completely different.

I've noted with interest the comments on here today about JWP.

Saintly Soul (who no longer posts on here) was asked the same thing when he praised this lad - why? Is because people don't rate him? Osprey made a good comment recognising that JWP hasn't started for a while. Despite that fact it's interesting to note the statistics in today's Sunday Mirror that out of all the 20 outfield players he covered the most area running just over 8 miles - he even beat Spider. This lad puts in a great shift and I thought played a sweepers role yesterday. He will run all day and has a great engine on him.

Yes early on he misplaced a couple of passes so did other players! Fortunately nothing came of them and on a couple of occasions he made a good block and a good tackle.

His position is central midfield you only have to watch him play for England under 21s. His problem is quite simply that he hasn't played as much as he should have played he's a young professional who is queuing up Behind senior professionals to play. Unlike Shaw he has competition.

JWP IMO is a tremendous talent who, given game time will blossom. I've no donut at all he will captain England and if he stays is a future captain at Saints.

Before anyone post I'm not his Father, brother, Mother, sister or related in anyway. I'm a saints fan who appreciates talent and class when I see it!!!!

There's something really satisfying about reaching Sunday evening after a footy weekend in which we won by a canter despite gifting 2 goals and during which most of the teams around us lost.

Bill, your last game 'love it' moment won't happen. By then, we'll be too far ahead of managerless Manure and their best players will be playing only to effect their high-profile transfers.

It'll matter to us, of course, we'll be fighting Spuds for 6th behind the impressive Everton.

I have to admit that I generally quite like Savage the pundit but his love for Carroll on MotD was a bit odd. England isn't packed with world class in-their-prime strikers/wingers right now but it's possible to make some sort of a case for most of the candidates - Rooney, Sturridge, Welbeck, Sterling, Oxo, Townsend, Lennon, Rickie, Jay, Adam .... even Defoe as a poacher ..... but apart from getting injured and getting sent off, Carroll has done diddley squat this season.

Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat. In fact the only player I've seen him/her post positively about was JWP before the game, he/she found time to criticise lalla and Gaston during the game yet JWP wasn't even mentioned and he had his worst game for us. You have to wonder why someone would pick on lalla all the time especially when he's had such a good season and has been the best player in an England international game despite only playing for 30mins!
So he/she/it has a dig at the fans, can give abuse but cant take it, and only rates JWP? Where is JWP from? Just a thought.

Alices Dad used to post - What's happening ?

SAINTS have had a successful Season - FACT. One week it is all doom and gloom that we have nothing to play for - a couple of WINS and we are ready to take down Manure. (Moyes is a football genius ! )

It has been successful - but with 8 games to go - the missed opportunity of the WEMBLEY APPEARANCE in one or both Cups still wrangles Supporters.

Seed has lost his usual enthusiasm on this Forum - and when hard core Supporters travel to Sunderland away in the Cup - it is not surprising that there is a reaction.

That is not the whole story though - I followed the Cup Runs and with Supporters out of position it was a very quiet St Mary's in one game with tiny Yeovil making all the noise.

OUR MAGNIFICENT AWAY SUPPORT has come of age and a Record Number of WINS have been achieved.

OUR HOME SUPPORT has been mixed. The NORTHAM has not lost its buzz but with key persons moving over to ITCHEN NORTH to get the interaction with the Away Support - it can and does affect the dynamics.

Regarding the PUBS - We have lots of Supporters everywhere - but when the regulars relocate - we get a situation where Norwich Supporters overran the Chapel before the last game and as long as they are pulling pints - then behind the bar they don't care. It does provide at atmosphere however where is is ready to kick off at short notice.

The upshot of all this is that this emboldens the Away Support and may have allowed them to get on Top. Staying quiet at Home Games is not an option - the Team can feel the positive vibes from the Supporters otherwise we will turn to an Everton type Library - See You Tube (Saints Away)

Remember the Pompey Away Game - there was so much uncoordinated chanting - that's because Saints Support is made up of lots of different factions - some larger them others - often with Leaders - but no Firm as such - which is the safest way to operate. Even solo Operators are out there in the Pubs and in the concourse. SAINTS SUPPORTERS ARE SMART and always one step ahead. The lot down the road are not so bright.

COMMERCIALLY - we have such a lot to develop - let's hope we can achieve the dream. STEP UP RALPH KRUEGER.

SO FAR NO WORD HAS BEEN MENTIONED OF AMBITION - Let's hope we can attract Quality in the Summer and take the Players further afield to develop the fan base. The Goalkeeping and CB positions need scrutiny.

THEY SAY YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO BE A SAINTS SUPPORTER - BUT WE ARE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP ON THE TERRACES - PARTICULARLY FROM THE NORTHAM.

POTENTIAL RED ARMY1's - Now is the chance to shine and they will.

The Players will regard this Season as a stopping stone to success with the ENGLAND inclusions. If we beat Manure in the final game will we be on the Pitch or will the Season drain away to polite applause.... ?

YOU DECIDE !!!

RED AND WHITE (BARMY ARMY)

Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.
"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
No we haven't appointed anyone, why would we when are perfectly capapable of doing it ourselves. I think you'll find that this is completly democratic and posters on this thread are happy to have a WUM free thread. May I suggest that you stop looking into the everyday functioning of the thread, but instead concentrate on cutting out the negative nonsense and start posting within the "community" rules. Who know's you might start getting a few thumbs up!

You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat. In fact the only player I've seen him/her post positively about was JWP before the game, he/she found time to criticise lalla and Gaston during the game yet JWP wasn't even mentioned and he had his worst game for us.

Guys nice try but I think you're wasting your time on this one. Like a petulant child he won't play by thread rules and insists on being belligerent. Let's just put him on the naughty step for a week or so and see if that doesn't bring him to his senses.

Quote: "who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?"
The point about a discussion thread is that you post an honest opinion, people read what you say and decide whether to agree or disagree, they then post "in their own opinion" what they think is right or wrong about what you have said. If the majority are saying it is wrong, or you get a massive thumbs down vote, then it is up to you to reconsider whether you have got it right or wrong yourself. It is not impossible that 99% have got it wrong and only you are right, but highly unlikely. It is important to keep a level head, and not throw insults at those that disagree, but light rebukes should be no problem, but you must stress that it is in your own opinion, not make it a statment of fact. I could call you an idiot, but you are obviously not, in which case your intentions are either deemed malicious or misguided if so many posters do not like them? Does that make sense?

Spot on as usual Osprey. The best thing that could happen to this thread would be for a select few to act as modulators in an official capacity. So for example you, horse, Velleity and Stras would have the power to put dodgy posters like this fellow on probation, which would mean any posts they wish to make would first go directly to you guys to check the content. If the posts were suitable and along thread lines you guys would green light them. And it goes without saying that you lads could ban any abusive posters.

That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!

If the majority are saying it is wrong, or you get a massive thumbs down vote, then it is up to you to reconsider whether you have got it right or wrong yourself. It is not impossible that 99% have got it wrong and only you are right, but highly unlikely. It is important to keep a level head, and not throw insults at those that disagree, but light rebukes should be no problem, but you must stress that it is in your own opinion, not make it a statment of fact. I could call you an idiot, but you are obviously not, in which case your intentions are either deemed malicious or misguided if so many posters do not like them? Does that make sense?
Spot on as usual Osprey. The best thing that could happen to this thread would be for a select few to act as modulators in an official capacity. So for example you, horse, Velleity and Stras would have the power to put dodgy posters like this fellow on probation, which would mean any posts they wish to make would first go directly to you guys to check the content. If the posts were suitable and along thread lines you guys would green light them. And it goes without saying that you lads could ban any abusive posters.
That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!
I can spot ventriloquism as well, hilarious .... a gottle of geer.

We have been fannying around at the back all season and the lesson learned, should have been learnt months ago.

Lets hope that we've seen the last of it after today.
I said the same thing weeks ago and was slaughtered by the blinkered. Happy clappers....
We prefer to be referred to as true fans. You are allowed to post what you want, up to a point that is. If you veer into the land of negativity, expect us true fans to suspect your posting intentions.
Gotta love the narcissism, Mr. True Fan, who will let the rest of us post what we want, "up to a point." Give your head a shake, mate!
Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.
"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat. In fact the only player I've seen him/her post positively about was JWP before the game, he/she found time to criticise lalla and Gaston during the game yet JWP wasn't even mentioned and he had his worst game for us. You have to wonder why someone would pick on lalla all the time especially when he's had such a good season and has been the best player in an England international game despite only playing for 30mins!
So he/she/it has a dig at the fans, can give abuse but cant take it, and only rates JWP? Where is JWP from? Just a thought.
Hey, I looked it up. He's from Portsmouth. You're pathetic.

The thing is, fellows, there are hero-worshippers and there are football fans. You lot (BB, Hablo, for sure, and Osprey sometimes) want unconditional hero-worshipping on this site only. Well, football fans think otherwise. As for my opinion, I, like other football players who are fans of the game, know more than you, and I'm not blinded by hero-worship. So, while it is my opinion, it is a considered opinion not made ludicrous through cringe-worthy self-abasement at the feet of my heroes, as are the opinions of Hablo and BB. Football is a game of 11 men a-side, and the little tricks that boys like Adam use only go so far against the hard men of the Premier League. I really don't care that you are mesmerized by his little tricks. He is a largely ineffective player when he meets with determined opposition. It's not a coincidence that they began to threaten and score once they took him off the pitch. As for the PC insults that you like to hurl at those who won't worship your heroes in the approved manner, Hablo, well maybe you should try harder to be less-insulting and more self-aware. Have a nice day, boys.

We prefer to be referred to as true fans. You are allowed to post what you want, up to a point that is. If you veer into the land of negativity, expect us true fans to suspect your posting intentions.
Gotta love the narcissism, Mr. True Fan, who will let the rest of us post what we want, "up to a point." Give your head a shake, mate!
Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.
"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat. In fact the only player I've seen him/her post positively about was JWP before the game, he/she found time to criticise lalla and Gaston during the game yet JWP wasn't even mentioned and he had his worst game for us. You have to wonder why someone would pick on lalla all the time especially when he's had such a good season and has been the best player in an England international game despite only playing for 30mins!

Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat.

So he/she/it has a dig at the fans, can give abuse but cant take it, and only rates JWP? Where is JWP from? Just a thought.
Hey, I looked it up. He's from Portsmouth. You're pathetic.
I cannot believe that a dedicated Saints fan was not aware of where JWP came from, true fans are never that much out of touch.

50 years old? Cripes wouldn't have guessed it! We don't ask for any form of recognition for supporting the team we idolise, all we need is for them to continue to perform for us, that's reward enough. There is no competition to be the best supporter, we don't appreciate overweight bell ringing egotistical exhibitionist types, just decent minded fans that get behind their team in any way they can.

Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.
"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
" I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you." Leave the house much, son?
Do we know either of these other so called Saints fans that you have met? Why only single fans? Married ones are just as good.
Calling another poster Son? How old are you exactly? You post like a spotty faced teenager.
Oh, Osprey, why all the negativity? Don't you think Hablo has the smarts to stick up for himself?
I am sure he/she will, but I doubt he/she spends as much time on here as I do.

Got me a bit confused there, quoting Velly, I couldn't figure out who Hablo was. I am only negative to posters that criticise my team and players unfairly, and who pick on posters that are of a like mind. I will stand up for all of them. I find it difficult to appreciate someone that never says "our heroes" but always says "your heroes", if you are anything of a Saints fan it would always be my team, our players. You have the word Saints in your sign on name so I assumed you profess to be a supporter of some kind?
You say you care what goes on, on the pitch, do you think we don't do that for some obscure reason? I would never be arrogant enough to say that I know more about the game than someone else, as you do. I know stuff, but what I don't know I research.

Quote: "who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?"
The point about a discussion thread is that you post an honest opinion, people read what you say and decide whether to agree or disagree, they then post "in their own opinion" what they think is right or wrong about what you have said. If the majority are saying it is wrong, or you get a massive thumbs down vote, then it is up to you to reconsider whether you have got it right or wrong yourself. It is not impossible that 99% have got it wrong and only you are right, but highly unlikely. It is important to keep a level head, and not throw insults at those that disagree, but light rebukes should be no problem, but you must stress that it is in your own opinion, not make it a statment of fact. I could call you an idiot, but you are obviously not, in which case your intentions are either deemed malicious or misguided if so many posters do not like them? Does that make sense?
Spot on as usual Osprey. The best thing that could happen to this thread would be for a select few to act as modulators in an official capacity. So for example you, horse, Velleity and Stras would have the power to put dodgy posters like this fellow on probation, which would mean any posts they wish to make would first go directly to you guys to check the content. If the posts were suitable and along thread lines you guys would green light them. And it goes without saying that you lads could ban any abusive posters.
That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!
The thing is, fellows, there are hero-worshippers and there are football fans. You lot (BB, Hablo, for sure, and Osprey sometimes) want unconditional hero-worshipping on this site only. Well, football fans think otherwise. As for my opinion, I, like other football players who are fans of the game, know more than you, and I'm not blinded by hero-worship. So, while it is my opinion, it is a considered opinion not made ludicrous through cringe-worthy self-abasement at the feet of my heroes, as are the opinions of Hablo and BB. Football is a game of 11 men a-side, and the little tricks that boys like Adam use only go so far against the hard men of the Premier League. I really don't care that you are mesmerized by his little tricks. He is a largely ineffective player when he meets with determined opposition. It's not a coincidence that they began to threaten and score once they took him off the pitch. As for the PC insults that you like to hurl at those who won't worship your heroes in the approved manner, Hablo, well maybe you should try harder to be less-insulting and more self-aware. Have a nice day, boys.
Jumped-up, Overbearing, Pompous, Supercilious, Egotistical, self opinionated,
condescending, pontificating, pretentious Tw@t.....I could go on, but you get my drift.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: they are young men playing a game for oceans of money. Yes, they are playing for the team that you support (and I support). But, no matter what team you support in any sport, these young men should not be your "heroes." Lee Rigby and his colleagues are much more worthy of such respect and admiration than are professional footballers, yet the word "hero" should be used sparingly even when speaking of military men. Also, in any walk of life, some people know more than others. It is not arrogance to state that matter of factly. I don't say that I know it all, but I will state with conviction those things that I do know well. That is confidence, but not arrogance. The fact of the matter is that you and your pals will routinely insult those posters who are critical of the young footballers whom you hero-worship. Because I am a football fan and not a hero-worshipper, I disagree about your perspective on Saints, as you disagree with mine. I am a football player and have been all of my life. For me, the beauty of the game comes before blind allegiance to 11 young men wearing a certain jersey. We can disagree about our perspectives on the Saints. All I am looking for is that the hero-worshippers stop insulting and abusing the football fans who also want to use the forum here.

It is important to keep a level head, and not throw insults at those that disagree, but light rebukes should be no problem, but you must stress that it is in your own opinion, not make it a statment of fact. I could call you an idiot, but you are obviously not, in which case your intentions are either deemed malicious or misguided if so many posters do not like them? Does that make sense?
Spot on as usual Osprey. The best thing that could happen to this thread would be for a select few to act as modulators in an official capacity. So for example you, horse, Velleity and Stras would have the power to put dodgy posters like this fellow on probation, which would mean any posts they wish to make would first go directly to you guys to check the content. If the posts were suitable and along thread lines you guys would green light them. And it goes without saying that you lads could ban any abusive posters.
That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!
The thing is, fellows, there are hero-worshippers and there are football fans. You lot (BB, Hablo, for sure, and Osprey sometimes) want unconditional hero-worshipping on this site only. Well, football fans think otherwise. As for my opinion, I, like other football players who are fans of the game, know more than you, and I'm not blinded by hero-worship. So, while it is my opinion, it is a considered opinion not made ludicrous through cringe-worthy self-abasement at the feet of my heroes, as are the opinions of Hablo and BB. Football is a game of 11 men a-side, and the little tricks that boys like Adam use only go so far against the hard men of the Premier League. I really don't care that you are mesmerized by his little tricks. He is a largely ineffective player when he meets with determined opposition. It's not a coincidence that they began to threaten and score once they took him off the pitch. As for the PC insults that you like to hurl at those who won't worship your heroes in the approved manner, Hablo, well maybe you should try harder to be less-insulting and more self-aware. Have a nice day, boys.
Jumped-up, Overbearing, Pompous, Supercilious, Egotistical, self opinionated,

We have been fannying around at the back all season and the lesson learned, should have been learnt months ago.

Lets hope that we've seen the last of it after today.
I said the same thing weeks ago and was slaughtered by the blinkered. Happy clappers....
We prefer to be referred to as true fans. You are allowed to post what you want, up to a point that is. If you veer into the land of negativity, expect us true fans to suspect your posting intentions.
Gotta love the narcissism, Mr. True Fan, who will let the rest of us post what we want, "up to a point." Give your head a shake, mate!
Of course I have to preface it with up to a point. We can't allow the WUMs to run roughshod over the thread. And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good. Now, we aren't as we we have been unfairly labeled, the thread police, for a start we don't carry truncheons. No we are true fans of the club who don't come on this thread to hear negative nonsense. Heed these words and you'll stay on the right side of us all.
"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
" I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you." Leave the house much, son?
Do we know either of these other so called Saints fans that you have met? Why only single fans? Married ones are just as good.
Calling another poster Son? How old are you exactly? You post like a spotty faced teenager.
Oh, Osprey, why all the negativity? Don't you think Hablo has the smarts to stick up for himself?
Got me a bit confused there, quoting Velly, I couldn't figure out who Hablo was. I am only negative to posters that criticise my team and players unfairly, and who pick on posters that are of a like mind. I will stand up for all of them. I find it difficult to appreciate someone that never says "our heroes" but always says "your heroes", if you are anything of a Saints fan it would always be my team, our players. You have the word Saints in your sign on name so I assumed you profess to be a supporter of some kind?
You say you care what goes on, on the pitch, do you think we don't do that for some obscure reason? I would never be arrogant enough to say that I know more about the game than someone else, as you do. I know stuff, but what I don't know I research.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: they are young men playing a game for oceans of money. Yes, they are playing for the team that you support (and I support). But, no matter what team you support in any sport, these young men should not be your "heroes." Lee Rigby and his colleagues are much more worthy of such respect and admiration than are professional footballers, yet the word "hero" should be used sparingly even when speaking of military men. Also, in any walk of life, some people know more than others. It is not arrogance to state that matter of factly. I don't say that I know it all, but I will state with conviction those things that I do know well. That is confidence, but not arrogance. The fact of the matter is that you and your pals will routinely insult those posters who are critical of the young footballers whom you hero-worship. Because I am a football fan and not a hero-worshipper, I disagree about your perspective on Saints, as you disagree with mine. I am a football player and have been all of my life. For me, the beauty of the game comes before blind allegiance to 11 young men wearing a certain jersey. We can disagree about our perspectives on the Saints. All I am looking for is that the hero-worshippers stop insulting and abusing the football fans who also want to use the forum here.
That's OK by me, you do it your way I will do it mine, but I don't intentionally abuse people on here, you apparently still can't help doing it, you will get more respect if you just put your point of view across and don't get upset if people disagree with you, that's is therir right even if they may be wrong.

By the way I admire anyone that is still playing football at fifty, you get my respect for that. I am not sure about your reference to Help for Heroes, I think a lot of us are involved with that, but apart from the word hero I don't see any other relevance in this thread.

I am only negative to posters that criticise my team and players unfairly, and who pick on posters that are of a like mind. I will stand up for all of them. I find it difficult to appreciate someone that never says "our heroes" but always says "your heroes", if you are anything of a Saints fan it would always be my team, our players. You have the word Saints in your sign on name so I assumed you profess to be a supporter of some kind? You say you care what goes on, on the pitch, do you think we don't do that for some obscure reason?

Yes, they are playing for the team that you support (and I support). But, no matter what team you support in any sport, these young men should not be your "heroes." Lee Rigby and his colleagues are much more worthy of such respect and admiration than are professional footballers, yet the word "hero" should be used sparingly even when speaking of military men. Also, in any walk of life, some people know more than others. It is not arrogance to state that matter of factly. I don't say that I know it all, but I will state with conviction those things that I do know well. That is confidence, but not arrogance. The fact of the matter is that you and your pals will routinely insult those posters who are critical of the young footballers whom you hero-worship. Because I am a football fan and not a hero-worshipper, I disagree about your perspective on Saints, as you disagree with mine. I am a football player and have been all of my life. For me, the beauty of the game comes before blind allegiance to 11 young men wearing a certain jersey. We can disagree about our perspectives on the Saints. All I am looking for is that the hero-worshippers stop insulting and abusing the football fans who also want to use the forum here.[/p][/quote]That's OK by me, you do it your way I will do it mine, but I don't intentionally abuse people on here, you apparently still can't help doing it, you will get more respect if you just put your point of view across and don't get upset if people disagree with you, that's is therir right even if they may be wrong.[/p][/quote]By the way I admire anyone that is still playing football at fifty, you get my respect for that. I am not sure about your reference to Help for Heroes, I think a lot of us are involved with that, but apart from the word hero I don't see any other relevance in this thread. OSPREYSAINT

The point about a discussion thread is that you post an honest opinion, people read what you say and decide whether to agree or disagree, they then post "in their own opinion" what they think is right or wrong about what you have said. If the majority are saying it is wrong, or you get a massive thumbs down vote, then it is up to you to reconsider whether you have got it right or wrong yourself. It is not impossible that 99% have got it wrong and only you are right, but highly unlikely. It is important to keep a level head, and not throw insults at those that disagree, but light rebukes should be no problem, but you must stress that it is in your own opinion, not make it a statment of fact. I could call you an idiot, but you are obviously not, in which case your intentions are either deemed malicious or misguided if so many posters do not like them? Does that make sense?
Spot on as usual Osprey. The best thing that could happen to this thread would be for a select few to act as modulators in an official capacity. So for example you, horse, Velleity and Stras would have the power to put dodgy posters like this fellow on probation, which would mean any posts they wish to make would first go directly to you guys to check the content. If the posts were suitable and along thread lines you guys would green light them. And it goes without saying that you lads could ban any abusive posters.
That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!
I can spot ventriloquism as well, hilarious .... a gottle of geer.
Ospers and Baba Booey, Southampton’s answer to Rod Hull and Emu or perhaps Keith Harris and Orville.
I think that should read Baba Booey and Ospers as I am the more likely one to be regarded as a dummy.

The thing is, fellows, there are hero-worshippers and there are football fans. You lot (BB, Hablo, for sure, and Osprey sometimes) want unconditional hero-worshipping on this site only. Well, football fans think otherwise. As for my opinion, I, like other football players who are fans of the game, know more than you, and I'm not blinded by hero-worship. So, while it is my opinion, it is a considered opinion not made ludicrous through cringe-worthy self-abasement at the feet of my heroes, as are the opinions of Hablo and BB. Football is a game of 11 men a-side, and the little tricks that boys like Adam use only go so far against the hard men of the Premier League. I really don't care that you are mesmerized by his little tricks. He is a largely ineffective player when he meets with determined opposition. It's not a coincidence that they began to threaten and score once they took him off the pitch. As for the PC insults that you like to hurl at those who won't worship your heroes in the approved manner, Hablo, well maybe you should try harder to be less-insulting and more self-aware. Have a nice day, boys.
Jumped-up, Overbearing, Pompous, Supercilious, Egotistical, self opinionated,
condescending, pontificating, pretentious Tw@t.....I could go on, but you get my drift.
Mirror, meet Arthur PeaBrain.
No problem if you want to stay on here and post this sort of thing but I think your attitude would be much better aired on Saintsweb. We are not likely to get too many moaners on here until the next bad result, when the flood gates will reopen.

You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

Do we know either of these other so called Saints fans that you have met? Why only single fans? Married ones are just as good.
Calling another poster Son? How old are you exactly? You post like a spotty faced teenager.
Oh, Osprey, why all the negativity? Don't you think Hablo has the smarts to stick up for himself?

"...And the chances are that if a poster is posting negative garbage, then they are indeed up to no good." OK, Mr. Truncheon: who decides what constitutes "negative garbage?" Is that you, or someone else whom you have appointed? You're having us on.
You've claimed Lallana is a "pansy".

I wonder why every manager since Lallana was a kid disagrees with you. I wonder why every pundit on TV disagrees with you. I wonder why the England manager disagrees with you. I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you.

When someone is as wrong as you are on something as clear as that, it isn't misjudgment, it's being "up to no good"
Its not just the one attack on lalla though is it! We have had constant negative posts regarding him, many being slightly homophobic. He/she has moaned about nearly every other player, lalla and Gaston getting most of it on Sat. In fact the only player I've seen him/her post positively about was JWP before the game, he/she found time to criticise lalla and Gaston during the game yet JWP wasn't even mentioned and he had his worst game for us. You have to wonder why someone would pick on lalla all the time especially when he's had such a good season and has been the best player in an England international game despite only playing for 30mins!
So he/she/it has a dig at the fans, can give abuse but cant take it, and only rates JWP? Where is JWP from? Just a thought.
Get yourself an App - Four Four Two Statistics and look at JWPs statistics for the Norwich game last Saturday I think you'll find he didn't have that bad a game! He got good scores in the Sun & Mirror yesterday. I know it's a game of opinions and accept you're entitled to yours but just have a look.

" I wonder why every single Saints fan I have met disagrees with you." Leave the house much, son?
Do we know either of these other so called Saints fans that you have met? Why only single fans? Married ones are just as good.
Calling another poster Son? How old are you exactly? You post like a spotty faced teenager.
Oh, Osprey, why all the negativity? Don't you think Hablo has the smarts to stick up for himself?
Got me a bit confused there, quoting Velly, I couldn't figure out who Hablo was. I am only negative to posters that criticise my team and players unfairly, and who pick on posters that are of a like mind. I will stand up for all of them. I find it difficult to appreciate someone that never says "our heroes" but always says "your heroes", if you are anything of a Saints fan it would always be my team, our players. You have the word Saints in your sign on name so I assumed you profess to be a supporter of some kind?
You say you care what goes on, on the pitch, do you think we don't do that for some obscure reason? I would never be arrogant enough to say that I know more about the game than someone else, as you do. I know stuff, but what I don't know I research.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: they are young men playing a game for oceans of money. Yes, they are playing for the team that you support (and I support). But, no matter what team you support in any sport, these young men should not be your "heroes." Lee Rigby and his colleagues are much more worthy of such respect and admiration than are professional footballers, yet the word "hero" should be used sparingly even when speaking of military men. Also, in any walk of life, some people know more than others. It is not arrogance to state that matter of factly. I don't say that I know it all, but I will state with conviction those things that I do know well. That is confidence, but not arrogance. The fact of the matter is that you and your pals will routinely insult those posters who are critical of the young footballers whom you hero-worship. Because I am a football fan and not a hero-worshipper, I disagree about your perspective on Saints, as you disagree with mine. I am a football player and have been all of my life. For me, the beauty of the game comes before blind allegiance to 11 young men wearing a certain jersey. We can disagree about our perspectives on the Saints. All I am looking for is that the hero-worshippers stop insulting and abusing the football fans who also want to use the forum here.
That's OK by me, you do it your way I will do it mine, but I don't intentionally abuse people on here, you apparently still can't help doing it, you will get more respect if you just put your point of view across and don't get upset if people disagree with you, that's is therir right even if they may be wrong.
By the way I admire anyone that is still playing football at fifty, you get my respect for that. I am not sure about your reference to Help for Heroes, I think a lot of us are involved with that, but apart from the word hero I don't see any other relevance in this thread.
Thank you. No, the reference to military men, like others who toil and sacrifice for the greater good, and who sometimes give their lives, was meant to provide perspective on the word "hero." That's all.
I think hero as a word for footballers is a bit overstated at times, but there are times when it is relevant, probably idol would fit the bill more appropriately, a Professional Footballers career is notoriously short, and it is only the top echelons that make any money out of it. This is sport for the masses, can't equate that with war for the few. You make it appear that because we spend our time revering our soccer teams that we don't have respect for members of our armed forces, nothing could be further from the truth. Also don't forget that not everybody supports the use of armed forces and would not agree with your view on it, that is their right. I remind you the thread was about football, nothing to do with World politics and their consequences.

That works fine on sites like Not606 and they also have a useful function called "Ignor", you can select this and you don't receive their posts, the only snag is that people use the "Quote" function and you get to see them anyway. We don't have that kind of luxury on here so it is up to the users to use common sense when posting, we have some intelligent readers on here that are quick to spot WUMers and Trols so I think we can tolerate a bit of nonsense, it would be very boring if we all agreed on everything!
I can spot ventriloquism as well, hilarious .... a gottle of geer.
Ospers and Baba Booey, Southampton’s answer to Rod Hull and Emu or perhaps Keith Harris and Orville.
I think that should read Baba Booey and Ospers as I am the more likely one to be regarded as a dummy.
NO THAT SHOULD READ OSPREY WHO IS BABA BOOEY WHO IS ARFER PHESACHE. Opps the caps lock was jammed. You're fooling no one.
Well you cocked that up in more ways than one, I am not guilty of being any of the above, other than boring old Ospreysaint, sorry to disappoint.

I guess the thumbs down are an expression of your disappointment, that is a bit comforting, by the way Saints Need Physical and Mental Toughness, never take me seriously, nobody else does. My sense of humour carries a Government Health warning, you have been warned......
