They need it much more than us. But I hope justice will be done, and that Saints get the breaks this time, after the debacle of the reverse fixture.

Lukaku killed us at home last year with WBA... I think he would be a good man to make a bid for.
Ok Saints.... really want us to hit the net now and we haven't done that for a while (since J-Rod was injured?)
Hoping for a good old fashioned 3-1 with Big Sam netting one.

Was thinking the same, Norgie. I trust you're doing your part by staying within Norway today.

I'm not - greetings to everyone everywhere from ........ New York City.

Checking in just a block away from the World Trade Centre on a chilly, dampish morning.

Pity both sides have key injuries but great to see 3 academy graduates start and 4 more on the bench. If we score 8 of those 15 goals you mention before half time, we could bring 3 of those 4 youngsters on and watch them knock home the other 7 :)

Still too early in his career to say - and he needs several starts like today before we'll know how good he is - but it's clear just how much we miss Jay.

.... did things just even themselves out? Hard to see on one replay, but it looked like a ref finally missed one that might have gone against us. Glad our luck is in so far today, pity it's against Everton rather than Arsenal; I'd prefer to see Everton grab fourth.

If there was an unsung hero award this season, Steve Davis would win hands down. He's been fantastic all season.

Credit to Everton, they've been very decent (when not trying to head back to Tim Howard), but we've more than matched them across the middle and credit goes to the whole team for that. Could Jack find a way into Roy's plans this late in the day? Not sure, but he must be in with an outside bet given how average some of those ahead of him are.

It's possible, RS.

Meanwhile, in case anyone can't hear what the fans are singing, it's apparently this:

"We are Southampton, we don't need to score."

"Who needs Rodriguez, we've got your back four!"

Okay, no penalty and Osman booked ....... what are people's thoughts?

We're certainly benefiting from having ref who doesn't simply give things against us. Not that the commentators agree with Michael Oliver's decisions.

Just a thought, would these decisions be not so much 'for us' but 'for Arsenal' or am I being a bit too oriented towards this 'big team bias' thing?

Osman was clearly going down before any contact, and it was only slight contact anyway.

Outstanding performances by Cork, Clyne and Davis. Lovren, Shaw and Fonte have kept them quiet. Boruc, thank goodness, not busy.

We're certainly benefiting from having ref who doesn't simply give things against us. Not that the commentators agree with Michael Oliver's decisions. Just a thought, would these decisions be not so much 'for us' but 'for Arsenal' or am I being a bit too oriented towards this 'big team bias' thing?[/p][/quote]Outstanding performances by Cork, Clyne and Davis. Lovren, Shaw and Fonte have kept them quiet. Boruc, thank goodness, not busy. DisplacedFan

Can anyone pick a MotM? Who did the TV give it to?

Of those who started, Nat, Steve, Vic, Adam, Luke, Jose - all top drawer, with Rickie and Dejan not far behind and Sam working hard and not giving Everton's defence time on the ball. But, for me, it's Jack. Despite fluffing his shot in the box, he was everything the current England midfielders aren't - strong in the tackle, broke things up, moved things forward, delivered some lovely passes ...... If ONLY he could add a couple of goals a season.

Yes I can, the idea there is some sort of conspiracy against us is laughable. Today there were some game changing decisions that went our way, or do you only view the games through red and white specs, try Specsavers.
Let's put it this way, some would have given it. He was on his way down before there was contact. If you see it as him going down on purpose, it's a dive. If you see the defender making contact without getting the ball first, it's a penalty.

Whether things even out over a season can probably be best explained by probability theory. It would suggest that it does for some teams but not others.

I don't need Specsavers but you need an abacus.

And I don't watch through red and white specs. Check what I wrote - I asked others for their views of Osman's appeal because on the screen on which I was watching it looked like a penalty ..... as did the potentially game-changing decision to NOT award us a penalty before any of the other shouts when it hit Stone's outstretched arm.

I've no idea about the later Everton shout because my screen froze and I haven't seen it and I don't think the second half Saints shouts were penalties. However, a quick reminder of the game-changing penalty Newcastle were awarded last season when the ball hit Fox's arm will show that softer hand-ball penalties have been given against us.

The point is, over this season (and last, for that matter) we have clearly not had decisions even themselves out.

Clyne MOTM for me. Don't know who did get it. Walker, at Spurs is still struggling with injury, with stories that he may be back for last two games, so a good day for Clyne to impress Roy.

Cork, Davis and Vic also very good.

Awesome performance, pity we couldn't get a goal of our own. superb statement of intent.
Can we catch Utd? Need their results to go our way I think, a draw from Norwich would be awesome and, I will say I think Norwich are going to be giving it some welly since they need the points.

could be a very interesting end to the season

I've no idea about the later Everton shout because my screen froze and I haven't seen it and I don't think the second half Saints shouts were penalties. However, a quick reminder of the game-changing penalty Newcastle were awarded last season when the ball hit Fox's arm will show that softer hand-ball penalties have been given against us.

The point is, over this season (and last, for that matter) we have clearly not had decisions even themselves out.
We had three ball to hand occurrences today alone, which other refs may have given to. "Big" team.
Their second appeal was a silly shirt tug from Lovren, to prevent their player from getting up. May have been given, but not today.

"I just want to enjoy my football. That's when I am at my happiest.

"Playing in a youthful team like this I feel like one of the experienced players.

"I am concentrating on the last two games and then I will sit down in the summer and see what happens.

"We have top players, a top manager and a top team. If we can add to that in the transfer market and keep progressing I am sure we can compete (for European football)."

I guess all that matters is we get the 3 points. Enjoyed the game, great skill on display and and bit of rough and tumble too in places. Extremely worrying though that the best strikers on the pitch were 2 Everton defenders. Gallagher is big, awkward man to defend against but there doesn't seem to be any acceleration, guile or first touch skills in his repertoire. Reed would be worth another look at though.
Is anyone else concerned with how Lallana answered the question about his future. As captain and one of our stars I would have felt a lot more comfortable if he'd just come out and said he wasn't going anywhere. We'll have to wait and see in the summer doesn't carry much conviction. Or am I reading something into nothing?
If only we'd bought Defoe!

Has Sam got the right studs in? He's falling all over the place!
In case you didn't notice it at the time, Sam changed his boots after about ten minutes of slipping and sliding, the real culprit was the drenching of the pitch before the start and at half time, even Rickkie ended up on his backside a couple of times, there must be a reason why they like a wet pitch and it does look nice, but we had an inch of rain Thursday - Friday, so I am not sure it was essential on this occasion. If you watch the Dejan slide tackle which was claimed to be a Penalty, you will see that the Everton player had lost control of the ball before Dejan arrived at a high rate of knots on his backside, I suspect that was down to the pitch as well. I reckon the Ref got that one right, and got two other handballs wrong, but I am biased of course.

You may not have noticed that we are extremely short of strikers at the moment due to the serious injury of our England international striker and the fact that we got rid of our Italian international striker because he didn't live up to our high standards. Own goals are generally scored by defenders being put under pressure and that's why we comfortably took apart a side desperately trying to get a champions league spot. Havant and Waterlooville could not only keep your bunch of donkeys at bay but they could comfortably score three or four as well.

You watch the papers say Evetton had a bad day. It's never due to a great team effort by Saints. Well done lads!
We were better in every single department. I wonder if Lou Reed's statement yesterday had an affect on morale?
Did he tell'em to "Take a walk on the Wild side" then?
