I think this will be the best time to play Southampton this season. They haven't really got into their stride yet and will be slightly more tired that us after their European trip. Still won't be an easy game but we've played well so far and I fancy us to take a point.
worst we've played since Neil came in. even before the sending off, we were looking pathetic. two completely avoidable bookings, Whittaker is a fucking moron. he may have been decent in the second half of last season but he's out of his depth up here. only game he hasn't struggled in was against a ridiculously poor Sunderland side.
Both yellows were totally avoidable so it;s really frustrating but we hadn't got going up to then and Southampton were looking most likely to take the game. Of course it was early and that could have changed. Jerome missing the free header early on also could have changed things.
Well that was easy. Just what was needed before the international break. Whittaker's first one was completely avoidable, the ball wasn't even in play. He just headlocked Matt Targett, as he was going for the quick throw and Whittaker was out of position.
