Harsh if so. We had a wobble, admittedly a bad wobble between probably 35-60 minutes, but for the majority we were comfortable today and I couldn't pick out anyone who had a bad game.
The only player I would criticise would be Mings for not crossing the damn ball. So many times he gets in great positions on the left either through hisown work or someone else's, and he just refuses to put a ball in, which is bizarre because when he does they're usually of decent quality. His distribution also needs to be coached better, he wastes so much when he should be looking for a midfielder to give the ball to.
But great result today. I said before the game a win would be massive, andI tthink it is, both to regain some confidence, and almost re - cement our top two credentials. I think a loss would have been disastrous.
Another big positive was Sears who looked a real handful. And a lovely assist for the last goal by the way. Looks a great signing on first viewing. Do we know if there was a fee paid and if so how much.
Also credit to Parr who actually added a great deal when he came on, not to mention the goal that he took brilliantly. Hats off.
MOTM for me would go to Tabb (lets forget the stupid foul that led to their goal). He was always scurrying about and when he is calm on the ball plays some good stuff. Felt him and Bru were a good partnership with Bru being the one to put his foot on it generally. Don't think we missed Skuse, or McGoldrick for that matter.
I know Southampton are a quality outfit but I didnt feel we put enough pressure on them late on.
Unsure as to why Mings didn't start?
Stewart on 80 mins - why so late?
Bajner for all the stick he gets won more than most.
Cue stick but McGoldrick also annoyed me. Looked like a great chance to put us level and he totally fluffed it. If it wasn't such a good chance I'll hold my hands up. But he's just not himself at the moment.
