With tempers high following last Saturday’s defeat to Cardiff City in what should’ve been a very winnable game for Southampton, a number of fans were quick to point to our lack of January transfer dealings in the aftermath of the game.

With the plan being to trim the group and with some late deals falling through if the rumour mill was to be believed, falling into the relegation zone for some was expected as some age old problems came to the fore again.

Taking to social media following the game, a number of fans had one target in mind when it came to apportioning blame – chairman Ralph Krueger – and whilst that’s understandable, it also seems a little short sighted given the improvements we have seen under our new Austrian gaffer.

Cardiff was undoubtedly a bad day even though we were in better control of the game, and it tastes more bitter given the way we dropped points in the last one against Burnley, but the players are capable of better and they need to shoulder that and stop the silly mistakes.

  • It’s not Krueger who is the problem. After all, he oversaw the appointment of RH. Its our owners, the Gaos, and probably our former owner who couldn’t wait to flog us, who the fans are frustrated with. They are clearly only here for their own benefit and have no interest in backing our club. Money is only going into their pockets. 3 years of doing it on the cheap now and the false economy that that obviously is, to almost get us relegated.

    • Becomes an easy target though sadly as although the final decision might be his, ultimately he still has a remit that only fans can guess at.

      So much incoming money and then the wastage on players who haven’t worked out…such a shame from where we were and growing and now fighting to not move further backwards.
