Monsieur Salut writes: I rely tonight on Benno and Barnes who acclaimed Sofiane Boufal’s wonder goal that beat us, praised Djilobodji for perhaps his best game since signing, considered Ndong ‘awful’ and agreed our first touch and passing were generally poor. No Pete Sixsmith this time so it is a substitute Seven …

    Watched on the internet. Ndong appears to offer absolutely nothing in the last third of the field. How can you waste 13/15 million on someone like that ? Did we buy the intended player … it’s not another Milton Nunez is it ?

    We are a shambles of a club. Absolutely pathetic. The fans are the only positive. Moyes out you miserable Scotiish fraud.

    Sack Moyes as fast as possible.

    Saints third team beat us
    Moyes has to go

    I didn’t see or hear the match last night so can’t rate Ndong’s performance but other people’s comments have me wondering this.

    Where is the sense in refusing to pay something like £7 million for a proven player in M’Vila, even if his contract did only have six months to run, and instead spending almost twice that on an untested youngster.

    That is not down to Moyes. When I go on Saturday I shall expect to see a set of false ears and whiskers on everyone’s seat because at the moment we are being run like a Mickey Mouse club.

    Everything you’ve heard or read about N’Dong is true. He was truly awful.
