Loads of Southampton fans have been running the rule over Saturday’s setback at the hands of Cardiff City, as the Bluebirds stole all three points in a thrilling finish at St. Mary’s.
Late goals are becoming a real problem for Southampton, as once again the Saints crumbled just moments before the final whistle.
Leicester City, Brighton, Burnley, Everton and Cardiff have now all scored in the last few minutes against the Saints this season, and Gylfi Sigurdsson’s strike for Everton was the only one of those that didn’t cost any points.

This was perhaps the most infuriating of all though, as this Cardiff side is so bereft of genuine Premier League quality.
This was a match that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side would have identified on the fixture list as a very winnable game, but Sol Bamba opened the scoring for the visitors in the second half.
Jack Stephens then looked to have rescued a point in the 91stminute, only for Kenneth Zohore to bag at the other end just moments later.
The side has been far better since Hasenhuttl’s arrival, but fans are furious with the lack of January investment, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Pathetic effort in the transfer window, insulting to the manager and the fans. Sold down the river to Gao. #gaoingdown

That’s what happens when you don’t sign a striker & let the best one leave.
Still, players can still enjoy the sun in Tenerife.

No signings in January✅
Always conceding after scoring ✅
Lack creativity in final third ✅
SkyBet Championship Football next season? ✅

Should be ashamed, gutless bored a club with an ego too big to realise we still need signings. Stop focusing about next season and think about the now! Not clear, no signings and back in the drop zone!!! Ralph Kruger better get the message from the fans!

No need to buy in the transfer window ??????????????

Why didn’t we buy Che Adams in January. He scored a Hat Trick today. Shane Long couldn’t score in a brothel! Hurry back Danny Ings.

Arrogant to think that we didn’t need to strengthen in January.
6 points Cardiff have taken off us this season. SIX!
4 defeats in 4 games against promoted teams this season.
Toothless in attack.#saintsfc #GaoOut

The lack of fire power and no signings relegation looks very likely shame the club player wise is in such mess more on loan than ever.

I said a few weeks back, Ralph would be a genius to keep this squad up. With no January additions, double genius. Fundamental lack of attacking quality and always likely to cough up a goal is not an ideal combination!
