Job done! Far from a classic, but we had a lot of experienced players out of the team and several young players starting for the first time, so disjointed. Shrewsbury defended well to be fair. Main thing is the win and into round 4.

A win is a win !
Gee wiz we need to learn to shoot when we get the opportunity. Stop trying to walk it in. Adam’s and Valery !

Stu Armstrong made the difference.

Great defending though from the Shrews. Well played.

Sounds like a pretty solid performance from a Saints side with plenty of our young players enjoying a run out.
Good for NLundulu to get off the mark with a goal which should give him some more confidence.
Need Ings to sign a new deal now and before Saturday would be a lift before the Arsenal games.

I'd like Ings to sign a new deal but I have my doubts. He has some lost time to make up for after his injuries so I wouldn't begrudge him a move as a player of his quality deserves the chance to win something. Reading Ralph's comments it seems he's not confident of keeping him.

Get LeTiss and Lambert to show them how to shoot first time. Stop trying to walk it in. Sometimes you just need to put your laces through the ball, if you don't buy a ticket you won't win the lotto.
Well played Shrews, great effort all things considered.

Ings looks set to be going in the Summer. Fair enough, that's football and I can't blame him. He's on 75K a week and for his last move wants a bumper deal, no one can begrudge him that.

But we took him on with a bad injury record and took a risk, we paid 20 million and I expect us to recoup at least that for him at age 28. Tottenham want him for 20M, I say nothing less than 30M.

Well done Saints, we will struggle next season without Ings...he does a lot more than score goals, and no-one else I have seen in the squad can match it..I would wish him well, but just ask we maximise him to the end of the season and ensure no VVD like non-sense, Play well to the end of the season and leave for good money on good terms please!!

To add - I hoped he would stay, 1) we should find some deeper pockets if we want to stay in the top half of the table (leicester have same size stadium/fan base), 2) Bar the money, if spurs keep the same players he will be a bench warmer behind Kane/Son, and I know they all get dreamy at CL footie, but actually he will probably get the odd 20 mins, and have to work with the 'special one'..

Stay and be a Saints legend forever

I think England would be mad not to take Ward-Prowse to international tournaments. He's easily the best set-piece taker we've had since Beckham. I imagine his success rate from the range shown today is 1 in 3 at least. Plus he'd have plenty of opportunities with how well Harry Kane and Grealish win free kicks in that area.

Dont support Southampton, but reckon Ings needs to really look at what he has, and not what he could possibly get. Beautiful part of country, decent team that he will always start for.
