Ronald Koeman was delighted to secure a first Premier League win as Saints manager.

The Saints boss felt his side were good value for their 3-1 victory against West Ham at Upton Park, which sends them into the international break with four points on the board from their first three games.

“I think we deserved to win,” said Koeman.

“I think we started very good, the first 15 minutes we were in total control with good ball possession but we didn’t create a lot in the first 15 minutes.

“I don’t understand after that period why we had more problems. Maybe West Ham played long balls and long throw-ins and it’s always difficult to fight the second ball because that’s one of the qualities of them and we lost a bit of control in the game.

“Luckily we scored the 1-1 before half time because that’s always if you make the goal a fantastic moment.

“I told the boys at half time ‘keep the sprit and believe in winning and play to win, not to draw or not losing, play to win.’ “What I saw was today we were a much better team than West Ham today and you have to believe that and have to play for that.

“We did that in the second half with more pressing, good ball possession and we deserved the three points.”

Well done, very well done, in fact against a team indeed the type of team that caused us trouble last season…

I have not been a happy bunny close season and still feel things could have been done better but no-one HC or neggie will be anymore ecstatic than me if it all pans out.

Watched online, one of the best performances I've seen in the last 5 years. Made west ham look like kids in the second half. Having been to the west brom match which was one of the worst I've seen in the last 5 years I'll just put that down to a bad day now.

Like the way he calls them the boys! The whole bench and players are all celebrating each goal together and they look like a close knit group increasingly. Good subs at the right time too. And when was the last time we came from behind to win...??! COYR

Brilliant. Reading some comments on WestHamTillI Die they are spitting feathers but many say we ruled midfield, and as expected of an RK team we were fitter faster stronger, hunted on packs and essentially muller end them.
Well done SFC that means everyone. Bonus will be when Scouse win at WHL tomorrow and one assumes the Skates lost as well.

Time for a large Morgan Spice and coke...Have to say maybe we should also get Puncheon back he was diplomatic on SS sbout Warnock but didn't look too happy?

Hope MOTD do us justice tonight, once they've drooled over Chelsea and commiserated over Manure, they should at least give us 2 minutes per half...

Looking forward to the Newcastle game, I so hope they turn on the style again like they did today, St. Mary's will be rockin! COYS!!!

I am not surprised today as you will remember I said Wet Spam would take the lead after 27 minutes, Spider would score 2 and Pelle would add the 3rd for a 3-1 victory. See, I am amazing!

Seriously this was an excellent win and just what this team needed. Actually, it seems the last time we won there was in 2002.

Now, bjwg 14, as to your question about coming from behind. It is strange but during the afternoon Sky mentioned that "it would be the first time in 127 games that Saints would win an away game coming from behind". That was reported by them to have been away at Coventry in 2002.

Can I say how pleased we all are this evening. Well done, Saints, well done, Ron! Just what everyone needed.

What! Two sets of 11 blokes (20 of whom cannot touch the round bag of air with their hands) and have to get the airbag into a big net by kicking and heading it whilst stopping the other team from getting it into another net - so long as the bloke doing so doesn't breach an extremely complicated 'offside' rule! I mean it's not as if they're trying to get a tiny ball into 18 little holes using only special sticks on a daft 'golf course'.

When our team gets the airbag into the net more than the other team it puts me on a big high all week - and it really pees me off when we don't.

Why? Well, we're all nuts I guess.

Many positives from today's game. A great 2nd half peformance, created plenty and scored chances, subs had an impact, RK inspired the team to up their game, Pella put a good shift in and IMO deserved his goal. Defensively we looked solid..... the list could go on.

Some negatives are that we were pretty toothless in the first half, we can't afford to wait til the 2nd half to perform. Davis looks a little off his game this season and hasn't yet hit the high standards of last season. But I'm being picky as if we can repeat the 2nd half peformance enough this season we'll be a team no one fancies playing.

I thought we were third from last tonight. Which is sort of first for us.

Can't argue with the line up I've seen: The first 2 pick themselves and Swansea are doing so well, they deserve high(ish) billing. Having turned onm, if they've changed it, I'll be less than happy.

Btw, Ospers, in Terceira in The Azores, there's a US base. Lots of transport planes and things. I know next to nothing about planes, except that I depend on them quite a bit but there were these 2 odd flying things which I think were something like ospreys. They had wings like planes but on the wings were propellers face up like a helicopter. So, any idea what they were?

I think its great that Swansea are doing well with ex-saint Gary Monk as manager.

stras, earlier you commented on a post about saints being light in midfield and said it could be a good or bad thing, I think we will all agree that Ronnie picked the right team today. we know they don't play through the middle so Ronnie played the less `physical` but more mobile players and it worked.

that's whats refreshing to see this year, a manager picking a team to face the opponents and not just the same players every week.

those planes were indeed the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, I don't think even our osprey would try to catch one of those ;0)

just a thought on tomorrows game, spudhampton v liverhampton, is it possible for both teams to lose a prem game? is there a rule I haven't heard of or can we get one implemented before kick off.
I`ve never wanted 2 teams to lose the same game so badly before in my life, well except for when poopey play their reserves!

the only thing they said about that goal was that `3 of them were off side`. did any of the production staff bother to look at it? didn't even bring up any line on the pitch to show if he was or wasn't off side, which he wasn't!
brave of the club to put spider out to talk given the current speculation, and given that the media are desperate for us to sell him, despite being told he isn't being sold.
lets not forget that whispering phil Neville had us as one of his tips to go down this season, he said we`ve lost 12 players this summer and the hearts been ripped out of the club. did he watch the game and see the heart the players showed? or the liverhampton game? hes becoming a bigger joke of a pundit than lawro and merson and the bbc only employed him because his brother has done wonders at sky. that's been phils problem for years though, his brother has always been much, much better than him!

Hello to everyone from out here in Vietnam. There is a few, well currently three, ex pat Saints fans out here, but the advantage is we get pretty much every game live. Last season there were so many times when Vietnamese would see my Saints shirt and say how much they enjoyed watching Saints play. It even seemed we were beginning to attract an Asian following. Until half time yesterday, that seemed a distant memory. What a superb team performance in the second half! Unfair to pick out individuals, but Pelle was superb, Spyder outstanding and Clyne seemed to have the fitness of the Hammers combined. For those who didnt get to the game, I would urge you to try to watch the last ten minutes if nothing else. The way we toyed with them, humiliated them, by playing high speed keep ball was simply unforgettable. Judging by our second half performances so far, Ron must be one hell of a skilled half time motivator!

I'm so glad to read you're post Warrens, I've been critical of you & other negative posters on here, but at least you have the nuts to admit it, Saints were great today and dominated like a team that have been together for ages, I know its early in the season and there's still work to do, but I think us "happy clappers" have been proved right in our faith, not only in the team, but in the club as a whole.

There's a lot of peace & love around these parts at the moment, & a pleasing absence of Skunts & WUMs. Long may it continue.

Thought we were superb yesterday, & our away support, as usual, were fantastic.

Pretty sure RoKo will pull off one more signing before Tuesday, & we still have Jay Rod to come back & inject some more pace.

I see the so called expert panel on MoTD did heir usual "Let's sell another Saints player pitch"

Murphy suggesting Morgan would be a good addition to Liverpool which isn't the first time he's said it on national TV.

Then you've got them all saying he'll be moving on to "better" things for sure in" and he didn't sound very convincing when asked about his Southampton future and transfer speculation etc.

The coverage from a Saints point of view was also p1ss poor.
They didn't show Frasers worldly save, reduced the 18 shots we had down to four, didn't bother discussing the Pelle offside but did highlight the Wet Spam corner/goal kick whinge.

Oh and where was o1ckhead Savage this week???

Looks like it's going to be another season where the BBC and the other biased anti Saints media will have to gorge themselves on large portions of humble pie.

Come on Saints, play like you did in the second half yesterday and at liverhampton and make these inept fools choke on it and have the embarrassment of having to laud our great club every week instead of thie constant negative exposure these pr1cks serve up every week.

Rant over and still very, very happy with our brilliant performance yesterday.

Despite a lack of sleep I am still grinning from ear to ear and have been all day. Well worth staying up for. Our second half performance was as good as any half of football played by Saints in any game last season. I know it's early days but I think we are going to be as good if not better than last year. Even at 1-1 I felt a calm confidence we would win but never expected such dominance and dare I say sexy football. Many wonderful moments but my personal favourite was Gaston's face when he "won" the corner that led to second goal. That made up for terrible call on Pelle's disallowed goal. Time to put the HC Neggies **** to bed and get on cheering the Saints as one.

it seemed none of them had actually watched the match as a whole. Our second half play was complete domination. The way we played for much of the second half was like the top four play and once we got the second we stroked th ball around and never let West Ham really get a look in.. Now e have the break whether that is a good thing or bad I do not know, maybe we can gel together even more before continuing against Newcastle and Swansea. Seems there will have to be some lst ditch dealing if ew are to bring anyone else in.

The goal replay seemed a little clearer than it does on MOTD. Watched the replay on that just now and still not absolutely clear.

The Russian replay makes me lean toward Pelle a bit more but still not 100% Maybe the Sunday paper'll clear it up.
Doesn't seem to have attracted a lot of controversy on here so maybe it wasn't Pelles' goal after all.

While more supporting the Saints is more addictive than cocaine it is still a little cheaper and as often as not you can actually find yourself yearning for the withdrawal symptoms.

the only thing they said about that goal was that `3 of them were off side`. did any of the production staff bother to look at it? didn't even bring up any line on the pitch to show if he was or wasn't off side, which he wasn't!
brave of the club to put spider out to talk given the current speculation, and given that the media are desperate for us to sell him, despite being told he isn't being sold.
lets not forget that whispering phil Neville had us as one of his tips to go down this season, he said we`ve lost 12 players this summer and the hearts been ripped out of the club. did he watch the game and see the heart the players showed? or the liverhampton game? hes becoming a bigger joke of a pundit than lawro and merson and the bbc only employed him because his brother has done wonders at sky. that's been phils problem for years though, his brother has always been much, much better than him!
Does Le Tiss give Merson a lot of stick when they are on TV? Unfortunately we don't get to see that here.
Le tissue did rip into him and the others on opening day when they were tearing us apart, defended his club well!
As for merson the rest of the panel seem to just humour him, he is truly awful and struggles with players names often getting them wiidly wrong, he gets his tongue twisted when talking live on the game and often gets simple facts wrong in his summaries. Don't forget it was merson who predicted that Rickie would score more than 4 or 5 goals in our first season back in the prem, he also thought we could lose to mancy by 6 or 7 goals in the first game. Perhaps the others humour him because they're scared of telling him the truth because they don't want to be responsible for making him need rehab again!
He does seem to have a problem with saints, which might be due to his skate days, it is a bit strange though because I'm sure I remember that saints let him train at staplewood whilst he was in the priory marchwood.

As for the 'pundits' in general, many seem surprised that we have done well so far this season ate losing 'all our best players'. Yes we lost some good players but our recent success has been built on team work not individuals. The vast majority of the squad are still here and look stronger together than ever.

Agree with a couple above our midfield is one of the strongest in the Prem and for now we have largely kept that together. Tadic looks an excellent signing and Pelle at last looks to be settling had my doubts and expressed them last week. Against Millwall he had a rough first half but give him credit he never hid and the fans were excellent cheered him and chanted his name every time he touched the ball and he acknowledged them. His confidence grew and second half he was unlucky not to get a couple more than the one he did. Yesterday he looked a lot more like we were expecting against a WH defence that had a reputation for being tough. Hopefully now he can carry on in that vein.
Bertrand for me has been a good signing gets on quietly with the job and competently and Forster looks good and is not easy to rough up in the box.

I have a feeling Gaston may well step up to the plate this season, not sure he bought into the Poch way of things. yet seemed to enjoy his football when he came on yesterday. Would love to see a consistent Gaston at his best, he has tremendous talent, maybe Koeman can bring it out of him on a regular basis.

Yoshida has done well at the back over all, one or two slips but then Lovren was not as perfect as some think.

We are still gelling and settling down after a summer of tumult, yet there is nothing to show us that we ae not s good as last season, another striker might be good to stir things up a bit and maybe that wide man.

Until half time yesterday, that seemed a distant memory. What a superb team performance in the second half! Unfair to pick out individuals, but Pelle was superb, Spyder outstanding and Clyne seemed to have the fitness of the Hammers combined. For those who didnt get to the game, I would urge you to try to watch the last ten minutes if nothing else.

If anyone wanted an example of how bias the media/press are to the big clubs they should have watched Sunday supplement on sky this morning.

They were talking about Pochaliar at spuds and said about the 'high pressing' game, one of them said that our players legs went at the end of last season and spuds wont suffer that because the players are much better!

They then mentioned that spuds got stuffed by the 'proper' teams last season and anytime things went wrong against the 'proper' teams they crumbled.

Proper teams! So the top 4 are now 'proper' teams whilst the rest don't count?

They seem to forget that some of the players who weren't as good as spuds last season have moved for huge fees to the 'proper' teams and that Pochaliar and those players knew they were going so weren't that motivated to give their all.

One thing to add that hasn't been mentioned: Jose Fonte makes an excelent captain. He was constantly reasuuring and marshalling the team yesterday - he's a diamond.

Additionally at the end of the game, the team had applauded our fans from close to the centre circle (as they often do) and Jose physically pulled some of them and shouted to the rest to come right over to our corner of the pitch. That showed class, IMO.

Is that right that they saved the best for last on MoD, they really don't like us?
I thought we were third from last tonight. Which is sort of first for us.

Can't argue with the line up I've seen: The first 2 pick themselves and Swansea are doing so well, they deserve high(ish) billing. Having turned onm, if they've changed it, I'll be less than happy.

Btw, Ospers, in Terceira in The Azores, there's a US base. Lots of transport planes and things. I know next to nothing about planes, except that I depend on them quite a bit but there were these 2 odd flying things which I think were something like ospreys. They had wings like planes but on the wings were propellers face up like a helicopter. So, any idea what they were?
I think its great that Swansea are doing well with ex-saint Gary Monk as manager.

stras, earlier you commented on a post about saints being light in midfield and said it could be a good or bad thing, I think we will all agree that Ronnie picked the right team today. we know they don't play through the middle so Ronnie played the less `physical` but more mobile players and it worked.

that's whats refreshing to see this year, a manager picking a team to face the opponents and not just the same players every week.

those planes were indeed the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, I don't think even our osprey would try to catch one of those ;0)

just a thought on tomorrows game, spudhampton v liverhampton, is it possible for both teams to lose a prem game? is there a rule I haven't heard of or can we get one implemented before kick off.
I`ve never wanted 2 teams to lose the same game so badly before in my life, well except for when poopey play their reserves!
Totally agree.

How about skiverpool win with Lianna scoring an own goal and getting an injury that keeps him out for the rest of the season, Lovren sent off for pushing the ref and banned for 20 games, would that do?

I know next to nothing about planes, except that I depend on them quite a bit but there were these 2 odd flying things which I think were something like ospreys.

Sh!te coverage from motd yet again, how about the fact we dominated the first 20 minutes, the whole second half and that Pelle was ONSIDE
the only thing they said about that goal was that `3 of them were off side`. did any of the production staff bother to look at it? didn't even bring up any line on the pitch to show if he was or wasn't off side, which he wasn't!
brave of the club to put spider out to talk given the current speculation, and given that the media are desperate for us to sell him, despite being told he isn't being sold.
lets not forget that whispering phil Neville had us as one of his tips to go down this season, he said we`ve lost 12 players this summer and the hearts been ripped out of the club. did he watch the game and see the heart the players showed? or the liverhampton game? hes becoming a bigger joke of a pundit than lawro and merson and the bbc only employed him because his brother has done wonders at sky. that's been phils problem for years though, his brother has always been much, much better than him!
Does Le Tiss give Merson a lot of stick when they are on TV? Unfortunately we don't get to see that here.
Le tissue did rip into him and the others on opening day when they were tearing us apart, defended his club well!
As for merson the rest of the panel seem to just humour him, he is truly awful and struggles with players names often getting them wiidly wrong, he gets his tongue twisted when talking live on the game and often gets simple facts wrong in his summaries. Don't forget it was merson who predicted that Rickie would score more than 4 or 5 goals in our first season back in the prem, he also thought we could lose to mancy by 6 or 7 goals in the first game. Perhaps the others humour him because they're scared of telling him the truth because they don't want to be responsible for making him need rehab again!
He does seem to have a problem with saints, which might be due to his skate days, it is a bit strange though because I'm sure I remember that saints let him train at staplewood whilst he was in the priory marchwood.

As for the 'pundits' in general, many seem surprised that we have done well so far this season ate losing 'all our best players'. Yes we lost some good players but our recent success has been built on team work not individuals. The vast majority of the squad are still here and look stronger together than ever. I would love us to beat last seasons league position just so we can shove their words down their throats!
Le Tiss always says "We" when talking about Saints to.
I think maybe its time to forget last seasons team now,and concentrate on the one we've got,they seem to be well on course so far,under a manager who appears to know what he's doing.Onwards and upwards.

Additionally at the end of the game, the team had applauded our fans from close to the centre circle (as they often do) and Jose physically pulled some of them and shouted to the rest to come right over to our corner of the pitch. That showed class, IMO.
Yes and they all threw their shirts into the crowd led by him which was a nice touch. The traffic was horrendous and we missed most of the first half but were in just in time to see Saints first goal! Morgan was immense although caught in possession for their one I think from the half time replays. Keeping him was crucial and we can now build around him.

Think its natural for some fans to feel like this summer was like the end of the world, most did at some point. We are all different and some people see the pessimistic side of things and are no less fans for that. What gets me are wums from down the road that come on here with their childish comments and masquerading as Saints fans.
We still over all have a weak squad, 9 players left over the summer when you count the likes of Guly and we still do need to strengthen. Yes we have some bright young players coming through again but need to bring them through slowly. We have supposedly offered 9 mil for Redmond, but there is also talk of a wing from Sporting Lisbon, we shall see.

Forster is going to be worth a few points a season too.There was a query about the first goal by some,but it took a deflection,and then a bounce before it went in,no blame there.

Hope the club do not weaken in their resolve to keep MS - no great insight but I feel he is key to our season. I sat with some West Ham friends for the game and got left all alone with ten minutes to go - lol. The traffic around Upton Pk certainly does not seem to get any better.

I usually follow on sky sports and find as long as the mix of pundits is right it's good entertainment, especially when God Tiss is on he puts all the anti saints scousers in their place and I also follow saints game on live commentary on sky sports football on my iPad.

Was enthused to hear one post of a guy who went to the wet spam game said him and his son pick their worse player at the end of saints games and yesterday they couldn't come up with a candidate, high praise indeed.

Comment from Ronko last week that Artur wanted to go.
Is anything moving on that?
or are we going to have two exceptional keepers?
Young lads percolating through, we do have good squad, maybe not that experienced.
This is not a downside as it allows the manager to instil at an early age just exactly what he expects.
Players from this win will enjoy training till the next game, how many are on international duty?
Let the pundits ignore us, it is better if everyone thinks we are a one season wonder. That way Wenger, Rodgers, Van Gaal and all the others searching through our youth system will go away. Probably not though!
Celebrate a great win, but keep in mind, we are the Saints, anything is possible.
It is always a rollercoaster ride for us Saints fans. That is why there are neggies.
Comment from Ronko last week that Artur wanted to go. Is anything moving on that? or are we going to have two exceptional keepers?

Forster is going to be worth a few points a season too.There was a query about the first goal by some,but it took a deflection,and then a bounce before it went in,no blame there.
Did you go?

I am interested in the conversation on here about streaming, have tried it but never had any success, also one of the pubs in are area used to bring games in on satellite from foreign telly but that didn't last long, would be great to be able to watch games that I couldn't get to.
There's usually a link to be found if you google something along the lines of;

'Southampton v ********* live streaming' There's always lots of phoney sites an adverst are a nightmare with pop ups but it's usually there. Need a fast connection though.

On a separate note, I am beginning to wonder if we didn't actually manage to hang on to what is our best player by a country mile.... :o)

Looks like Pelle may prove me wrong he did step his game up a level, but before we get carried away with yesterdays win there were two outstanding factors.
First, Morgan was brilliant & showed why we must keep him, although yesterdays performance will attract bids before tomorrow night.
Second, West Ham were poor (just like West Brom were) and missing some key players with injury.

However Saints did do well coming back from a goal down and will give them a confidence boost but we still need to add some more quality by tomorrow night,

A top CB with a £8m bid for van Dijk rumored today and a proven goalscorer still needed.
Also a good winger with a good cross for Pelle's head to give RonKo options, a £9m bid for Redmond also rumored today, not sure he is worth that but time has run out.
Shame we didn't have wingers like Nathan Dyer & Jason Puncheon available, or bought Wilfred Zaha as all three did well and scored yesterday !!!

Come on Les get these 3 in by tomorrow night and say NO to bids for Morgan & Jack, then you can have a couple of days off.

What! Two sets of 11 blokes (20 of whom cannot touch the round bag of air with their hands) and have to get the airbag into a big net by kicking and heading it whilst stopping the other team from getting it into another net - so long as the bloke doing so doesn't breach an extremely complicated 'offside' rule! I mean it's not as if they're trying to get a tiny ball into 18 little holes using only special sticks on a daft 'golf course'.

When our team gets the airbag into the net more than the other team it puts me on a big high all week - and it really pees me off when we don't.

Why? Well, we're all nuts I guess.

league table holds only two slight surprises at the moment.
Swansea & Villa will probably be replaced by ManU & Everton
Even then there are those who will disagree, but neither of the latter will stay down for long and soon enough they will rise.
Then we will have some tests to pass.
Beating WHU is good, but no one had them down as potentiol table toppers and we must beat all the teams who are designated as likely to be in the bottom 10, the same teams as last season replaced by the Promoted.
The good feeling must be used to push these players to greater heights.
Liverpool was a good game, poor result,
WBA was a poor game not good result.
WHU was a good game, excellent result.
Now we have 2 weeks to knit together and NUFC will be a very good test as they will either climb out of this current mallaise or drop to the bottom and sack Pardew. Saints can help Fatboy with his decision.
So glad to hear Morgan should be staying and it shows that we want him and perhaps the players that left were not quite what we felt they were.
Spoke to several that went to the game and they all said that 80% of the game was ours.

Considering West Ham have been cursed with injury problems etc it would have been really, really bad if Saints had lost the match. Despite their problems however West Ham did manage to score the first goal.

If Saints don't fill their vacant positions then they are going to be in a lot of trouble later in the season, time is fast running out for transfers , it's a little reminiscent of Nero fiddling whilst Rome burnt down .

Watching Live Streaming - I used http://sportlemon.ge
/live-football.php
to watch yesterdays match. As others have said, ignore the pop ups such as "you must download this player" etc, just wait for the tiny little x in a box to appear and close each of the popups in turn. You do not need any of the downloaders/players etc that the ads say are required. You do not need to download any software. Sometimes switching to full screen gets rid of the adverts. There is usually a choice of links - just keep trying different ones till you find one that works OK. Keep checking for, and closing all the spurious browser windows that open (eg Sports Bet) - the fewer windows you have open, the better the picture is likely to be. Be prepared for the stream to freeze and you having to reload. Usually streams only start when the match starts.
I have not yet missed a match I wanted to watch other than pre-season.
Good luck!

Which vacant positions are they?
You want a winger?
You want a centre-back?
Any other positions you want filled?
Which ones would you like?
We are Saints, the players we can tempt are not the stupid suggestions you and others keep mentioning.
Replace any of that team that won yesterday with who?
There are players on our injury list too, no bleating from Ronko.
I admit we should beat WHU and we did, it is only you, who has the will to be despondant no matter how good the situation, who has chosen to rubbish the fact that we beat a Premier team at their own ground.
Oneinthecrowd . usually the one who is constantly carping and referring to some golden era that only he can remember.
We are Saints , we get highs and lows, we support our club regardless.
If you want constant good times then you are in the wrong sport let alone league.
Nobody has a divine right to success(,MUFC), and we are just going to have another season of battles and triumphs and setbacks.
Neggies will get their games, happy clappers will get theirs.
You need to decide if you want to support the Saints or just find another team who will do your entire bidding and take you on as manager.

You want a winger? You want a centre-back? Any other positions you want filled? Which ones would you like? We are Saints, the players we can tempt are not the stupid suggestions you and others keep mentioning. Replace any of that team that won yesterday with who? There are players on our injury list too, no bleating from Ronko. I admit we should beat WHU and we did, it is only you, who has the will to be despondant no matter how good the situation, who has chosen to rubbish the fact that we beat a Premier team at their own ground. Oneinthecrowd . usually the one who is constantly carping and referring to some golden era that only he can remember. We are Saints , we get highs and lows, we support our club regardless. If you want constant good times then you are in the wrong sport let alone league. Nobody has a divine right to success(,MUFC), and we are just going to have another season of battles and triumphs and setbacks. Neggies will get their games, happy clappers will get theirs. You need to decide if you want to support the Saints or just find another team who will do your entire bidding and take you on as manager. dadofmy3sons

Beating WHU is good, but no one had them down as potentiol table toppers and we must beat all the teams who are designated as likely to be in the bottom 10, the same teams as last season replaced by the Promoted.
The good feeling must be used to push these players to greater heights.
Liverpool was a good game, poor result,

You seem to churn out the same old drivel regardless of the result, Southampton win and you say it is because West Ham are cursed with injuries, if Southampton had lost you would probably say that they had been beaten by West Ham reserves. Being such an expert on all football matters maybe you can explain why poopey lost to a very poor Newport County side, COYR+WS.

'Southampton v ********* live streaming' There's always lots of phoney sites an adverst are a nightmare with pop ups but it's usually there. Need a fast connection though.

Sorry to join the old coggers club but I feel compelled to say that I've been with Saints for over 60 years. In those days they didn't call it 'grooming' when an older lad encouraged a youngster into this depraved lifestyle. I was taken up the 'chocolate box' (oldies will understand) at only 6 years old.

What! Two sets of 11 blokes (20 of whom cannot touch the round bag of air with their hands) and have to get the airbag into a big net by kicking and heading it whilst stopping the other team from getting it into another net - so long as the bloke doing so doesn't breach an extremely complicated 'offside' rule! I mean it's not as if they're trying to get a tiny ball into 18 little holes using only special sticks on a daft 'golf course'.

When our team gets the airbag into the net more than the other team it puts me on a big high all week - and it really pees me off when we don't.

Why? Well, we're all nuts I guess.

Haaarghrrrrrrhahahah



ahahaeerrumph!
Me too skipgravy.
Summed Football up just as the wife does Confucious, I've been nuts since 1957, last season in third division south I think.
I can beat that in the book "In that Number" on page 4 there is a facsimile of a programme of Saints v Man City dated April 5th 1947. I was at that game.
You must of been at saints games my dad went to, amazing support.

to watch yesterdays match. As others have said, ignore the pop ups such as "you must download this player" etc, just wait for the tiny little x in a box to appear and close each of the popups in turn. You do not need any of the downloaders/players etc that the ads say are required. You do not need to download any software. Sometimes switching to full screen gets rid of the adverts. There is usually a choice of links - just keep trying different ones till you find one that works OK. Keep checking for, and closing all the spurious browser windows that open (eg Sports Bet) - the fewer windows you have open, the better the picture is likely to be. Be prepared for the stream to freeze and you having to reload. Usually streams only start when the match starts.
I have not yet missed a match I wanted to watch other than pre-season.
Good luck!

An extremely poignant post skipgravy, and the key word is 'emotional'. The journey I've gone through since I started going to the Dell in the late 80s has been exactly that.

There's nothing like that feeling you get when you wake up on saturday morning, the anticipation of the day ahead, seeing the regulars in the pubs, the roller coaster of the match followed by the post match elation/commiseratio

I've had to temporarily replace all that that with a family and job up here in Scotland, but I'm determined to get it back again when the time is right. It's something that never goes away :-)

Spot on, the ritual has been the same for years, headache tablet after Friday night out with lads, coffee, cooked breakfast, pub, get to ground early enough to take in the atmosphere, enjoy watching the team I have supported since my dad first took me as an 8yo 46 years ago.

Me and my mate who's a villa fan for his sins, have to plan as many things as we can in the close season to keep us from going insane, football what a wonderful game, what was it shankley said?

Yeah, Spyder was immense yesterday -suddenly stands out a lot more too with the other money grabbers gone!
I did type a huge email but the power on my iPad went so my reply is a little more concise.

I have been more of the attitude that if he wants to go with the midfield cover we have let him go for the best price and strengthen in other areas, but i have been watching some recordings I have of last year, also watched how he has responded since his little twitter tantrum and I think I was wrong, he is very important to Saints possibly more important than the rest of the players that of left.

That would suggest I suppose that our board, manager might just have the ire finger on the pulse.

Perhaps I am being a b!tch but does Lovren look a bit shaky, or is he just settling in to a new set up?

Just been listening to the Press Pass on Talksport and football reporters think that Poxytino will get found out at Todgerham Hotsperm. The reason being that Saints were already playing the high energy pressing game under Adkins so he inherited not only an excellent group of young players but an attractive style of football, but his lack of managerial experience meant he had no plan b. He is a manager who has never won a game after going behind in any game. As I said before "sacked by Christmas" I will not cry for you Argy (tina)

My first game was a 1-0 home defeat to Palace in November 1963 when I was seven. My second a 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool in I believe our first season in the old division 1, and my third a 1-0 home defeat to Spurs later the same season. Nevertheless that did`nt stop me from becoming a lifelong fan. It`s either in your blood or it is`nt.

Forster is going to be worth a few points a season too.There was a query about the first goal by some,but it took a deflection,and then a bounce before it went in,no blame there.
Did you go?

I am interested in the conversation on here about streaming, have tried it but never had any success, also one of the pubs in are area used to bring games in on satellite from foreign telly but that didn't last long, would be great to be able to watch games that I couldn't get to.
There's usually a link to be found if you google something along the lines of;

'Southampton v ********* live streaming' There's always lots of phoney sites an adverst are a nightmare with pop ups but it's usually there. Need a fast connection though.

On a separate note, I am beginning to wonder if we didn't actually manage to hang on to what is our best player by a country mile.... :o)
Thanks mate will try that out.

Spyder?
Yeah, Spyder was immense yesterday -suddenly stands out a lot more too with the other money grabbers gone!
I did type a huge email but the power on my iPad went so my reply is a little more concise.

I have been more of the attitude that if he wants to go with the midfield cover we have let him go for the best price and strengthen in other areas, but i have been watching some recordings I have of last year, also watched how he has responded since his little twitter tantrum and I think I was wrong, he is very important to Saints possibly more important than the rest of the players that of left.

That would suggest I suppose that our board, manager might just have the ire finger on the pulse.

Perhaps I am being a b!tch but does Lovren look a bit shaky, or is he just settling in to a new set up?
I think the same as you - I didn't think that Schneiderlin was as important as Lallana et al but now they've gone I honestly think he is now shining as a result, and I just hope he sees that too. I agree that he has reacted brilliantly to the situation which, lets face it, must have been hard for him seeing people like Lovren get their 'dream move' after about 10 months! Not convinced he is fully committed to us long term but Roko might just keep him on side.

Agree about Lovren too - he is under pressure and Liverpool want him to be a leader to replace Carragher etc but, IMO, he is not. He is a good, solid defender playing with a lot of weight on his shoulders. Interesting how MoPo reacts to today :o)

On another point, I can't help wondering what Lambert feels when he watches us battering West-Ham on MOTD and knows he could so have been a part of that still and revered as a result. Maybe he's dreaming of a January loan move?

He can come back tomorrow, would work well with Ronko both loyal and sincere people, could we loan him back, that would be great.

Poxi well shall we open that debate up, you know my thoughts, he was starting to be found out and tactically he ain't a patch on RK you can see that already and will become more evident as time goes on.

Forster is going to be worth a few points a season too.There was a query about the first goal by some,but it took a deflection,and then a bounce before it went in,no blame there.

You read my mind! I have been thinking that for a while now, but thought I would be laughed out of here! He is class. Needless to say his pace wouldn't be what it was but he never had problems putting the ball into the back of the net! I even transferred him out of NY on Fifa and gave him a try lol

I was having a U tube Henry fest only a couple of weeks ago for about 3 hours straight. Good to see the FA cup final a few years back when we made it hard for him to score. He sure knows how to sniff out a goal, and his skill executing them sure leaves some defenders and goalkeepers suitably embarassed! Seeing him and Bergkamp link up was poetry.

Saints are linked with several players ahead of Monday's 11pm transfer deadline, but will they land any of them ?

Saints are being linked with a number of players as the transfer window prepares to slam shut with Ronald Koeman saying that he for one will be glad when it has closed as he can the finally prepare his squad with certainty after a couple of months of not knowing who will be there and who wont be.

One person who seems certain to be gone is Saphir Taider who after only three weeks at the club has decided it is not for him, the writing was on the wall when h failed to get on the pitch for any of the first games of the season and with rumours that Koeman was less than impressed with his attitude with the player allegedly demanding assurances of a first team place, perhaps it is for the best he goes now.

His departure however does mean that we will perhaps be looking to sign three players rather than the two positions that Ronald Koeman is stating

Koeman is on record as saying the two positions he is looking to fill are a defender and a winger although this could be a little more than that given Koeman's preference for players who are versatile.

Biggest name Saints are linked with is Red Bull Saltzburg midfielder Sadio Mane with a bid of around £10 million close to landing him according to Sky Sports news, Mane is a Sengalese international and at 22 has already a wealth of experience as well as a goal every other game ratio in the Austrian league.

If that deal fails Saints are also weighing up a move for Norwich winger Nathan Redmond who would be slightly cheaper at around £9 million with Ronald Koeman seeming feeling that he is lacking a bit of pace out wide.

Brek Shea on loan from Stoke could be a fall back option if neither does arrive.

Defensively Toby Alderweireld seems to be edging a little closer after Koeman intimated that the deal would not be done, but according to media reports the player seems to be preferring to St Mary's to Newcastle or Sunderland and he could be a surprise addition to the playing squad.

Virgil Van Dijk looked to be on the cards, but Celtic are adamant that he wont be leaving.

Certainly it looks to be a busy day for Saints with plenty of wheeling and dealing behind the scenes although whether any of them will come off is another matter.

Henry would still do a job he was class, just like a certain sir Tiss, check his goals out online.
I was having a U tube Henry fest only a couple of weeks ago for about 3 hours straight. Good to see the FA cup final a few years back when we made it hard for him to score. He sure knows how to sniff out a goal, and his skill executing them sure leaves some defenders and goalkeepers suitably embarassed! Seeing him and Bergkamp link up was poetry.
When you are a true football lover you can appreciate good football wherever it comes from, it's better if it's your team that's playing it but good football is good football and I for one love it.

I can't say I know a lot about him, but being a Stoke reject I won't be crying if we fail to sign Shea.

Geez, whats wrong with giving credit where it's due?

Allardyce admitted that Saturday’s performance was inexcusable and that Song may already be regretting joining West Ham.

“He’s brilliant, but he’ll be wondering what he’s come to after watching that performance today. We’ve brought in a quality player and the players here are going to get better with him.” Allardyce told talkSPORT.

“Today a massive wake-up call to these guys. We were not 100 per cent today in lots of areas.

“When that happens, you’ve got have resilience and determination.

“The way Southampton got in front was not through stunning, passing football, it was through a lapse of concentration on two set-pieces that let them.

Bad news and good news- Rodgers says he wants one more transfer this window, which Saints player this time? Spurs lost -sacked by Christmas, they will b no higher than Utd around 7th this season!
Todgerham have been down this road so many times, they poach managers and players from other clubs but fail to realise any success these people have is because they are working in an environment that is centred around a collection of people all working together as a team, break up the team and you will find the sum of the parts does not always equal the whole. Todgerham Hotsperm and Liverhampton will realise this in the not to distant future and rue the day they spent all that money on mercenary egotistical traitorous scum.

Let them come knocking and tell them we sold what we wanted to sell for vastly inflated prices but the real gems are staying put.

We didnt give in to the Argies in 82 and I dont think we will give in to one two faced money grabbing out of work by Christmas Argy this time. As for Brenda enjoy our cast offs

Forster is going to be worth a few points a season too.There was a query about the first goal by some,but it took a deflection,and then a bounce before it went in,no blame there.
Did you go?

I am interested in the conversation on here about streaming, have tried it but never had any success, also one of the pubs in are area used to bring games in on satellite from foreign telly but that didn't last long, would be great to be able to watch games that I couldn't get to.
There's usually a link to be found if you google something along the lines of;

'Southampton v ********* live streaming' There's always lots of phoney sites an adverst are a nightmare with pop ups but it's usually there. Need a fast connection though.

On a separate note, I am beginning to wonder if we didn't actually manage to hang on to what is our best player by a country mile.... :o)
Thanks mate will try that out.

Spyder?
Yeah, Spyder was immense yesterday -suddenly stands out a lot more too with the other money grabbers gone!
I did type a huge email but the power on my iPad went so my reply is a little more concise.

I have been more of the attitude that if he wants to go with the midfield cover we have let him go for the best price and strengthen in other areas, but i have been watching some recordings I have of last year, also watched how he has responded since his little twitter tantrum and I think I was wrong, he is very important to Saints possibly more important than the rest of the players that of left.

That would suggest I suppose that our board, manager might just have the ire finger on the pulse.

Perhaps I am being a b!tch but does Lovren look a bit shaky, or is he just settling in to a new set up?
I think the same as you - I didn't think that Schneiderlin was as important as Lallana et al but now they've gone I honestly think he is now shining as a result, and I just hope he sees that too. I agree that he has reacted brilliantly to the situation which, lets face it, must have been hard for him seeing people like Lovren get their 'dream move' after about 10 months! Not convinced he is fully committed to us long term but Roko might just keep him on side.

Agree about Lovren too - he is under pressure and Liverpool want him to be a leader to replace Carragher etc but, IMO, he is not. He is a good, solid defender playing with a lot of weight on his shoulders. Interesting how MoPo reacts to today :o)

On another point, I can't help wondering what Lambert feels when he watches us battering West-Ham on MOTD and knows he could so have been a part of that still and revered as a result. Maybe he's dreaming of a January loan move?
Lambert must be hurting I would think, I think he was used to get at Lieanna and Lovren and I think they wanted Clyne as well, seeing them bring in striker after striker since he arrived must make him think what have I done at my stage of career.

He can come back tomorrow, would work well with Ronko both loyal and sincere people, could we loan him back, that would be great.

Poxi well shall we open that debate up, you know my thoughts, he was starting to be found out and tactically he ain't a patch on RK you can see that already and will become more evident as time goes on.

Someone wiser than I said something along the lines of Poxi was being found out, he didn't have a plan b, his teams seems to run out of gas and they said if it was such a good way of playing why wasnt everyone doing it.
I am currently watching Thiery Henry's best goals can we have him as striker signing before the window closes, my god it's a bit like sometimes I watch Tiss goals and they look better all the time, watching Henry while you always knew how good he was some of his goals are out of this world.
You read my mind! I have been thinking that for a while now, but thought I would be laughed out of here! He is class. Needless to say his pace wouldn't be what it was but he never had problems putting the ball into the back of the net! I even transferred him out of NY on Fifa and gave him a try lol
Yeah I saw some Bergkamp and Shearer goals today too - let's get them both in!

The fans in Vietnam. I've a great friend who's a gooner - and a really great guy (it can happen). I'm trying to remember the bar he goes to in HCM. It's near the backpacker area - I'll find out. I'm certain he'd love to meet with Saints fans for a match of any kind.

The fans who have been going since heaven knows when. I'm a mere kid, first game around 1970-71 - we beat Manure 1-0 and Jimmy G. scored. Still can't remember if it was a penalty or free kick.

Night all!

It could be said we have broken up our team, however, without going over old ground and risking being accused of being a theorist or a happy clapper, I do think we will be stronger going forward.

We now have a collective of people running the club including an owner that has now realised it is ok having someone running your company but they never are the same as those that run a company with their own money, Ronko is top class from a footballing perspective, his openness and honesty and I believe he is in it for the long term.

I am of a mind we made a lot of money from some not bad players, not world beaters like Ronaldo or Rooney but never the less good club players, but we have signed good club players for half the money allowing us to return to financial well being and have sufficient finance to put together a squad that can handle the pressure of the EPL.

The future is bright with RK & KL

Agreed and with deals for Alderweild and at least one other very close now our future is hopefully full of players who now want to play for our club,

Last season I lived a lie - following a team who were using their performances as a stepping stone to something they perceived to be bigger. I just didn't realise it was a lie until it was all over. Now I have a manager who won't accept liars and short-cutters and suddenly I feel incredibly passionate gains!

Till tomorrow.... COYS!

That's a guy that gets overlooked shearer he was absolute class, had everything.

I know it would never of happened under the old guard but it would be good to get some of these guys involved in the club again, Tiss, Benali, Shearer, perhaps not only would the skills be passed over but in two out of the three loyalty to one club could be imparted Jon some today's stars.

Todgerham have been down this road so many times, they poach managers and players from other clubs but fail to realise any success these people have is because they are working in an environment that is centred around a collection of people all working together as a team, break up the team and you will find the sum of the parts does not always equal the whole. Todgerham Hotsperm and Liverhampton will realise this in the not to distant future and rue the day they spent all that money on mercenary egotistical traitorous scum.

Let them come knocking and tell them we sold what we wanted to sell for vastly inflated prices but the real gems are staying put.

We didnt give in to the Argies in 82 and I dont think we will give in to one two faced money grabbing out of work by Christmas Argy this time. As for Brenda enjoy our cast offs
It could be said we have broken up our team, however, without going over old ground and risking being accused of being a theorist or a happy clapper, I do think we will be stronger going forward.

We now have a collective of people running the club including an owner that has now realised it is ok having someone running your company but they never are the same as those that run a company with their own money, Ronko is top class from a footballing perspective, his openness and honesty and I believe he is in it for the long term.

I am of a mind we made a lot of money from some not bad players, not world beaters like Ronaldo or Rooney but never the less good club players, but we have signed good club players for half the money allowing us to return to financial well being and have sufficient finance to put together a squad that can handle the pressure of the EPL.

The future is bright with RK & KL

UP THE SAINTS
Agreed and with deals for Alderweild and at least one other very close now our future is hopefully full of players who now want to play for our club,

Last season I lived a lie - following a team who were using their performances as a stepping stone to something they perceived to be bigger. I just didn't realise it was a lie until it was all over. Now I have a manager who won't accept liars and short-cutters and suddenly I feel incredibly passionate gains!

Till tomorrow.... COYS!
In Ronko we trust, come on you saints.

I know it would never of happened under the old guard but it would be good to get some of these guys involved in the club again, Tiss, Benali, Shearer, perhaps not only would the skills be passed over but in two out of the three loyalty to one club could be imparted Jon some today's stars.[/p][/quote]I would imagine Shearer's a geordie through and through?[/p][/quote]I know but while Ashley's there shearer won't be, he would be a great role model to have around our youngsters particularly the strikers. fascia123
