With every Saints fan having masks, can we expect to hear "200 Rickie Lambert's, there's only 200 Rickie Lambert's" being sung?

Strange game this one... The only thing I don't want is injuries, maybe agree with the Swans that we play non-touch football?

theres been a few people saying that maybe cork BigVic and spider could play together, myself included, today we will see if it will work.
Swansea like to keep the ball, as do we, so having three in the middle to break up the play might be a good move by MP.
hope big sam has a good game up front and gets a goal or two.

hard luck to nige losing out on the playoffs to brighton. hope he can get reading back next season. he might not be our manager anymore but I still have great respect for him and still hope he does well, not against us though.

Greetings everyone. I so wish I could have been at this match but will have to make do with joining the great company of fans around the world looking forward to another great 2013-4 performance from our team.

Glad to see Spiderman playing in an advanced roll (unless MP wants 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1, of course). I've a funny feeling we'll see one from him today, plus one for Sam and a late first for Jack ......... maybe!

COYR!

Ditto about NA. Was really hoping he would win the play offs.
As for us, big ask for Sam, hope he bags a goal. Like to see a Reed get more than just a couple of minutes too

Me too, bad luck Nigel. However, well done BHA. Would be nice to see them come up. Most of their fans are pretty decent.

I think Reed has got something special. I'd love to see him get 30-40 minutes today. I doubt if he'll be able to break into the first team next year, so could be one who'd benefit from a season-long loan to somewhere like Reading or Forest.

Although we look great with all the passing and possession, we just don't have the cutting edge to make it count...plus we've been lucky not to concede with a couple of their breakaways, Bony came very close but fired over the bar.
Still, hoping that we can make something of the possession in the second half...I think one goal may be the difference today.

Yep! As Norgie says, it sounds all too familiar. Where would we be now if the possession we've enjoyed had been turned into clear-cut chances and the chances we have made had a better conversion rate? Still been a great season, though.

Usual story.
Not sure the midfielders actually know who should be going forward and who should be staying back, which seems to lead to an all or nothing type scenario.
Surprised none of the midfielders are breaking beyond Sam. Maybe he needs to be dropping short, like SRL does, to create the space for runners.

As much as I think he should go ive got a feeling Roy's going to pick Cole.
We also haven't got a direct replacement for Luke so it would mean a big reshuffle of the team if he came off.

Because he's a waste of space who doesn't try hard enough and doesn't make good decisions on the ball. Absolutely wasted a glorious chance to send Luke screaming down the wing with a one-timer on a counter-attack. Decided instead to **** around and wait. Wonderboy is a major part of the reason they are not scoring in open play.

Well obviously if you knew anything about football you might understand that having two international forwards missing and having SRL trying to do it on his own is a little difficult against premier league defences. Take a look at a proper football side on match choice tonight and you might be able to spot that we are playing with a very green 18 year old up front. Oh and watch it all and you will also see that we won away from home. You see if you only score one and the oppo don't you still get 3 points.

Nice to see a sense of humour failure going on over on the skate news site.
anyone would think they can't take a joke which amazes me considering what's been happening on the pitch for them this season - you would think they would be used to that kind of thing.

but it's ok - history is on their side.

which reminds me.... the Soviet Union used to trot out that line, how's it going for our erstwhile commmunist comrades?

OI! SKATES!

anyway, I must try to concentrate on the team 73 places above them who have just had an awesome season with a team no one rated. Bring on Utd and another win (however it happens - I don't care as long as we bag three points). Bring on the silly season story's about how our entire team is leaving. I reckon the board will be fighting like tigers to keep the team together.
Osvaldo and Ramirez didn't work - ship them out and get what we can for them. (Nice to be in a position of such financial stability that we can afford to experiment and try different players)
Work on those amazing youth players, get in a couple of signings and get the depth of the squad sorted out and we'll be in a very very interesting position for next season.
