Saints 4 Burnley 3

Last updated:

    FT 4-3
  • Adam Lallana deflected attention from the Mark Clattenburg saga with an excellent winning goal from the edge of the area.
  • Rickie Lambert and Nathaniel Clyne gave Saints a 2-0 half-time lead.
  • But Burnley's Southampton-born Saints rejects, Sam Vokes and Danny Ings, restored parity before Jay Rodriguez netted against his old club.
  • Lallana ensured that Kevin Long's 87th-minute goal was a consolation.

I say go for it; a win is a win is a win is a win. These days, Saints are highly unlikely to win the league, so we should focus on being a top-7 side, and winning a cup every couple of years to get into Europe. Then, once we've had a taste of success and developed the squad & fanbase, get the capacity of St Mary's increased so we can start competing a bit higher.

On another note, anyone know where to get the full transcript of what Clattenburg said? There must be more to it than just the "you've changed" quote, but news on Saints is a bit sparse over here.

With the Pompey game postponed, James Beattie bought the four Accrington Stanley fans who made the trip tickets to the Saints match today. Much better for them as they'll get to see some quality football in Southampton.

Anyway, anybody have a link for the game? It's not on TV out here.

Well, if that team can't beat Burnley, we are seriously lacking in depth!

Hoo & Yosh are definately good enough for top of the Champ, Ramirez should be able to shine here, and the rest are first class regulars. Maybe we are taking the old tin pot seriously after all.....

So it's a 'win-win' then Tony.

Re: the big debate, I don't think anyone has seen the full Clutt script.

Go to Newsnow.co.uk/sport/
football/Southampton and you'll find out as much as the rest of us.

IMO, the whole thing revolves around two points:
1. Saints not wanting Clutt to ref our games and NC using all available legal channels to make this happen.
2. To achieve point 1, making a lot out of what Clutt is known to have said, which is rightly perseived as being 'unprofessional' because he offered an opinion on Adam's character, and that's not his job.

Anyway, let's focus on today and get that win, win, win, win you mention.

Strong side, so no complacency.

Anyone got any live feeds?

This is a classic really tricky game for us. Remember when we were around the top of the championship and the attitude we had in games like this. For Burnley they've absolutely nothing to lose, for our lot given the recent run of results this amounts to more than an ordinary cup-tie.
Burnley appear to have a strong team out so they intend going for it. We are going to have to play well, especially defensively.

An interesting line-up for us. Still does not give us an inside look into the thinking of MP in a cup run, other than he seems to be taking this a little more seriously. How this fits in to the big picture is still not clear, but perhaps the week off regular fixtures giving players time to rest factors in to this selection. Time for Ricky to step up with a header and a great free kick.

There is little difference between the top of the C/ship and the lower Prem. This won't be an easy game and we certainly won't embarrass them like we did against Hull and Fulham. Just hope we don't lose any regulars to injury as we don't want to be losing any more players in a competition we have little chance of winning.

Today's game has confirmed all that we know about the SAINTS.

WE HAVE QUALITY WITH ADAM RICKIE AND JROD.

Our Defensive Team with Hoover Yoahida and having Kelvin in goal leak goals like sieves. We keep leaking 3 at home. We have major problems at the back.

We would be better off with INGS than have Osvaldo and Gaston on our books - for all their millions they have delivered so little.

WE SHOULD HAVE DONE A LOT BETTER AGAINST CHELSEA - AND THE GAME HIGHLIGHTED THE PROBLEMS. WE WERE AT HOME.

Surely the Manager can see what we can.

A WIN FOR THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON TODAY. COYR

We all reckoned it would be tricky, yet we're through okay. So, never mind the way we did it, bring on the 4th round draw.

And a game for the 15,000 faithful to remember.

Great to be in the draw but good god our defense is a bloody shambles AGAIN.

Jos so likes us but is so out of his depth..horrible when that happens...no winners.

KD as good or as bad as we can hope at this stage of his career again massive loyalty but performance is everything it's a shame we do not have the luxury of letting players see out their careers because of our lack of overall depth.

We need to keep Fonte as cover but another Lovren is more than essential..

Lallana star and certainly the most cultured English midfield player today.

Jay Rod he is getting better..Lambert wonderful servant but feel he too is slightly beyond his best for us full time..

If we are to move on 4 positions have to be taken to top four quality level...hmmm...can you lend me 50 francs Strassie?

FFS we win 4-3 at home in the cup against a tough, top of the champ, burnley side who have 2 forwards who support our team and were desperate to score, whilst we played half of our reserves. and people are still MOANING!
I know players made some mistakes but we are through to the next round of the cup, bl00dy enjoy it. celebrate wining for a change. let MP sort the mistakes out.

job done. that's all that matters.

I shall leave it to Poch to talk over the defensive issues with the players concerned. I thought that the team overall played well apart from those few defensive wobbles (which, frankly, we should expect from hoover and maya until they get a grip - but they STILL aren't as bad as Fox)

excellent to see Clyne get himself a goal as well - that will do wonders for his confidence.

to be honest it wasn't half of our reserves out there. mostly 1st team players and a couple of bench warmers who are part of the senior squad were out there. it got to the point where we had to bring our best 3 to save the game. it was far from comfortable. a few players that played last night aren't good enough for the 1st team and sadly to say, i dont think they belong in the squad.

Well done Jay Rod.

Can't believe people are still knocking Jos. If you have a problem with him then you essentially have a problem with the management of this club. Bloody let them get on with it, if they don't think Jos fits in to our future plans (and I suspect they don't) then they WILL do something about it.

i know for a fact if we had a better CB available, MP will not play Jos. we dont really have much back up hence why hes given the cup games. nobody is slagging off the management , they are doing terrific but its quite clear who are the weakest link in the team and if we can see it im sure MP can.

Kelv in goal, second choice. Jos and yoshi both second choice. Cork second or third choice. Ramirez second choice. JWP or s Davis, with a fully fit team they don't both start. Thats 6 non first team starters or half the team of reserves. Whilst I will admit that some do start some games, they don't when we are fully fit. Yes again some did start last season but we have improved since then and changed the style of play. I didn't say we had a weak team, intact part from the centre backs we had a strong team out. Also J-rod wasn't brought on to 'save the game' he was brought on in the first half, when we were 2-0 up and looking good, to replace an injured SRL, who if you look through the earlier posts I said shouldn't have started Incase he did get injured.

You are only repeating the same old mantra that we are already aware of, why not post something new and positive for a change, we have heard this all before, over and over and over and over again, it's getting pretty tiresome.
