Worst performance under MB, I know we had major players out but other players need to step up but didn't.
First time questioning Bielsa, mainly the (like a small squad, ) , really hurting us, that team and bench weak.
Then 1-0 and brings on forshaw?
Rodrigo is woeful, 27mil was terrible and if rumors correct, that he was wanted in summer, should've gone.
We soooooo miss KP and raphi, they'll have been sitting watching and thinking, do I look elsewhere.
Starting to worry.

Good post M, we were a lot of key players missing, that I can accept, but you would have thought the ones playing would give their everything in a game against a team low on confidence, but that didn't seem to be the case. That is the worrying thing.

Cheers feath, agree with you on saints a very poor side and bet they were surprised how bad we were.

Disagree with Southampton being a poor side, yes they’ve struggled to score and they do miss Danny Ings. They’ve competed very well so far even against the good teams but scoring goals seems to be a problem for them. We had virtually the spine of our team missing that’s difficult to replace with bench warmers. I’m not going to deny that It was a poor game for us by our standards.
Yes it’s too easy to say that we should have bought a whole ruck of players last summer but have you ever thought that we are not a rich club and couldn’t spend 100 Million plus ?

As OP says Saints are not actually a poor side. They have been defensively better this season, despite losing Vestergard in the summer. However, even with so many players out, we had the resources to perform better than we did. Sadly Tyro just is not performing to the required level and midfield with him in and Klich as a nominal DM within that middle four was not robust enough to compete with Saints.

I would have preferred to have started Drameh instead of Tyro, with him on the right of the midfield and Shack taking up the DM role, freeing Klich to operate further forward. There are several other alternative configurations, involving bringing in Cresswell or Summerville, or even Forshaw starting as the nominal DM, just to help get a foothold in the game.

Looking forward, I’d definitely like to see Tyro loaned to a Championship side, to get consistent gametime and some confidence, and to bring back Bogusz from Ibiza. Bogusz chase apparently played effectively during his loan spells at CAM, on either wing, at CM aardvark even DM - and he can score spectacular goals, and even takes a decent free kick - would seem a much better option than Tyro at the moment.
