    I've got nowhere to put this, so what the hell, there's no harm in having glint of sunlight on a gloomy page 1.


    Propper's run from deep inside our half, ghosting past at least 3 Southampton players, was a thing a great beauty.

      There’s no need for this thread. We’d have won if Andone wasn’t such a ****. I’m happy. Apart from with him. He needs the Potter magic (sorry) working on his temper or he needs to be sold

      Yeah the new Propper is a wonderful thing.
      I concede that he is much improved under Potter and one of the early successes.

      One positive is we now definitely know Andone cannot be trusted for discipline. Incidents last season perhaps put down as just rash or accidents, today proof he has a screw loose.

      Personally my favourite thing about his appearence was when he floated a backpass into their keeper's arms.

      Plenty to be positive about and lots of signs of progression. We also have the benefit of now having a different and more positive approach to away games which means we can start picking up points and wins away instead of solely relying on our home form

      This is clutching at straws.....

      You put your left leg in, your left leg out.

      In, out, in, out and shake it all about...............

      Another positive for me is the growing confidence of Solly.

      Sure he still can't shoot for toffee but he's really getting to grips with the space he's finding himself in.

      Dan Burn owes a lot for his performances to Solly as he's clearly starting to scare the opposition.

      If this is actually a serious thread then there are loads of positives:

      1) Stephens looks WAY better in this formation
      2) So do March and Montoya
      3) Dan Burn has changed from a reserve to a MotM winning BEAST
      4) Maupay will grow in to this league
      5) Andone must be on his last chance
      6) Jahanbaksh still hasn't played
      7) The constant will they / won't they put the lyrics of GOSBTS on the screen allows for a tremendous, evens-odds, betting game just before kick off when everyone's phones pack in
      8) Dunk
      9) Heaven forbid that the VAR link to Heathrow should malfunction. But imagine if it did
      10) I stayed awake for the whole 90 minutes and have no current plans not to renew my season ticket
      11) Andone must be on his last chance
      12) Locadia can probably get a really tasty DJ gig in the international break and if someone can keep him at said rave then Connelly can have his place on the bench.
      13) It was actually interesting to watch
      14) Andone must be on his last chance
      15) We'll have done enough homework on Stains to do them when we go there
      16) More than one shot on target
      17) There seems to be more beer options around the ground
      18) Trains ran well
      19) Trossard
      20) An actual feeling of "come on then" when the time added on was announced. Until they scored a few seconds later.
