Southampton’s season ended with a whimper, as an Angus Gunn blunder gifted Alex Pritchard the opportunity to grab an equaliser for Huddersfield at St Mary’s Stadium.
The south coast outfit have been on a poor run in recent weeks and hadn’t won since 13th April against Wolves, so the opportunity to put an end to that disappointing spell was missed on Sunday.
Clearly there is some work to be done if Southampton are to realise their top-half ambitions and avoid another relegation battle next campaign, and Ralph Hasenhuttl knows it.
A Southampton fan shares his most gutting moment of the last 10 years supporting the Saints in the video below…
The Saints boss has completely transformed the feel around the club and has introduced a refreshing style of football but was unforgiving in his post-match interview, stating the need for some solid additions in the summer despite limited funds and leading many of the fans to plead with the board to back the manager appropriately in the coming months.
You can check out the best of the reaction on Twitter below…
Love this attitude. Just shows how keen he is to build the squad around him. The board need to seriously act big and give him a huge transfer budget to rebuild the side, give 1/2 loan players a chance and get rid of more dead wood #SaintsFc

Can we save this and just repeat it in the boardroom each week UNTIL THEY LISTEN!!!

The board won’t spend he will get fed up = leave for a big club sorry but he’s too good for us with the lame excuse of a board

Very Happy with Ralph……however, why go five at the back after half time? 1-0 up defending a lead against a relegated side and the bottom team. West Ham away was the time to play this formation. I’m a bit baffled, but I still think you are the best man for the job!

I feel that he can give us a special season given the financial backing. I bet he already has a few players from the German league in mind. The futures bright, the futures red and white! ?

Clearly not happy and who can blame him after a very lame performance this afternoon but it would appear that he knows what must change in our performances, players and behind the scenes to ensure we do not repeat this of the previous 2 seasons
