Southampton fans were unhappy with Saturday’s performance despite FA Cup win

Southampton booked their place in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup on Saturday after a hard fought win away to Championship side Fulham.

Saints had failed to win a match in nine previous attempts but a James Ward-Prowse effort on the half hour mark was enough to see them safely through, giving a major boost to Mauricio Pellegrino’s reign at St Mary’s.

While obviously pleased with the result, supporters were still left fuming at the performance of their side, believing that they should have made easier work of the lower league side and being left baffled by some of Pellegrino’s tactical decisions.

Fans are worried they’ll be dragged into a relegation fight in the second half of the season, sitting perilously close to the relegation zone as it stands.

Is sacking Pellegrino the way forward or can the Argentinian grind out the results needed to ensure that Saints will be safe in the closing stages of the season?
