    Lose it, and might as well plan for the inevtiable slide drop to the championship. So no pressure.

    Nah! He was so utterly bemused that he had actually found the net, he was in a state of shock!

    If he and KWP are anything to go by the recruitment department has stepped up massively since Ralph arrived. ...or Maybe Ralph arrived.

    Loving the Adan’s love. Though not scoring, he has looked so good lately. His awareness, touch, strength and passing has been fantastic. Due a goal surely?

    I cant help but think Gabbiadini would have thrived under our new setup. Painful to think about how poor we were when he was he and making run after run with not a single pass going his way.

    Been thinking the exact same thing. He was a great player that we ruined!

    (Sorry messed up the quote!)

    Lets not forget that he was here when Ralph took charge, and he decided that Gabbi wasnt for him.

    To be fair, that may be because we’d already ruined him, or to be accurate, Pellegrino and Hughes had ruined him.

    #saintsfc on twitter before the Fulham game, so many fans having a meltdown because Stephens is playing and Salisu isnt, despite the fact Ralph has said hes one for the future.

    Obvious that Salisu isn’t up to playing in the Ralph way...why do fans think they know more than him. My concern is more about him ever being ready....good idea to give him a run out in the Cup....he’ll either shine or show why he’s not playing.

    Ah, ok. I’m not on social media. Get you now. Stephens does worry me, but he has been solid in the two games he’s had to play recently.

    looked like he had spent Xmas eating with me though

    No problem with Stephens playing - in fact, I think he can count himself unlucky to have been dropped. His last minute block against Fulham was superb, and his overall performance despite not having played for ages was very good.

    He wasn't unlucky to be dropped because he was awful at the start of the season. You play poorly and you deserve to be dropped.

    You seem to forget that Bednarek was equally as poor. The whole high line was suicidal, and Ralph dropped it the same time as dropping Stephens.

    True but you can't drop both of them.
