Che Adams’ late strike put the nail in a Saints FC shaped nail in Bournemouth’s coffin, but the death blow came just moments earlier when VAR ruled out their late equalizer for offside.


 


Honestly, it wasn’t very pretty. Bournemouth were more direct than THAT overconfident guy in the bar around 1:45 am after 16 drinks. We didn’t really press Bournemouth in their own half, mostly because they sent it upfield as soon as they had it at their feet. Still, Danny Ings managed a goal (we’ll forget the saved penalty), Saints kept a clean sheet, made it 31 points on the road this season (second only to Liverpool), eclipsed Puel’s point total of 46, and have a chance to finish as high as 11th… and all that despite losing 0-9 to Leicester City in October. Can you believe it!


 


Joining me on the show this week to discuss the match and chat about the team and the season is Ben Stroud, author of a few horror stories and the Archers Road End blog, which I love and miss.
