On Saturday Southampton fell to yet another defeat as we made the trip to Craven Cottage to face off against Fulham.

Despite taking the lead through Stuart Armstrong in the 18th minute of the game, defensive issues once again came to the fore and the hosts had fought back to take a 2-1 advantage. A second effort from summer signing Armstrong was soon cancelled out as Aleksandar Mitrovic found his own form to complete a brace and give new manager Claudio Ranieri his first victory at the club.

Whilst Armstrong’s efforts were a small reason to cheer for struggling Southampton fans, Portuguese international Cedric Soares’ post-game interview was something different.

On one hand his honesty is to be admired, but on the other hand, his exact choice of words left an awful lot to be desired.

It garnered the exact reaction you would’ve expected it to amongst the fanbase about what is wrong at the club at this moment in time.

“We were winning 1-0 and I had a feeling that we get the 1-1 because we were very exposed, and then maybe after 1-1 our head was gone immediately. When we concede we immediately get so down mentally, we get frustrated, maybe afraid to lose.”
