In a tight match that was not decided right until the end Southampton finished up 2-0 victors. Adam Lallana showed us what we had been missing in pre-season with a starring role as he began from the start of the game. Bournemouth were supported by a splendidly vocal away fan base and played with vigour and heart as they kept trying to take the game to us. Saints had to show there fighting spirit and were the more adventurous team at the start of the match. Bournemouth came more into the game and could claim to have been slightly unlucky not to have gone in at half-time a goal up. Many Saints fans would have dreaded the resumption after the break after seeing the hosts dominate for periods in the first half but their concerns were unfounded. In an evenly fought second half it took a moment of pure class by Lallana to help settle the Saints nerves with a magnificent goal. Collecting the ball on the left he cut in before curling a great shot into the goal to set us on our way. Bournemouth were not without chances, but then just after Rickie Lambert arrived, we had a second goal. Jalal saved a Lambert shot and the ball was pushed out by the keeper. Almost immediately young Oxlade-Chamberlain took advantage of a loose ball to race onto it and slip it past Jalal and into the net. The relief was clear as Saints ended up without any undue worries. Bournemouth had given their all and in a game of high intensity our team had matched them in all departments. A good win against a side that wouldn't lie down and one that hopefully kick starts our season.
