It has been a dismal few months for Southampton fans as they have witnessed their team go on a winless run of nine Premier league games.
The club have suffered five defeats and recorded four draws, which has left them just one place above the relegation zone.
Mauricio Pellegrino has come under scrutiny due to the results and disappointing performances.
At the weekend, the Saints switched their attention to the FA Cup, and on this occasion the result was much more positive.
A slender 1-0 win over Fulham sent Southampton into the fourth round of the competition.
Despite the result, plenty of fans are far from satisfied by what they’re seeing on the pitch.
After the game, James-Ward Prowse, who scored the goal, spoke of the team’s determination to turn fortunes around.

Supporters, though, did not buy into the midfielder’s claims, and instead criticised the player for repeating the spiel that they so often hear.
Actions speak louder than words…….heard it so many times recently…….prove my doubtedness wrong please!
