Me neither but have watched them three times on TV. They are on different level. Their passng and backup were great.

saints last night were, at times awesome, at other times you could say they were a bit lucky, ok you make your own luck, but the style of play saints use is fantastic to watch when it comes off, but sometimes when it doesn't, it looks foolish< albeit its very rare i know!> a lot of saints play is run and throw the ball, kind of hoping that a team mate will be there to receive the ball.

defensively saints remind of wigan when they were dominating the game, pushing/flouting the rules to the limit, the amount of time saints players were offside at the play the ball was incredible yet klein, oh god him!, failed to bother to penalize them.
how can a team play against this kind of smothering tactic, its just like wigan used to do, good luck to them if they can get away with it!< i wish haven could!!>

and of course, lets not forget, that one of saints' favourite moves is starting to creep back into their game.
remember the one where goat eyes joynt used to run through and take out 1 or 2 defenders then the ball would be thrown behind him to a runner who would score?
just watch how many times they do that now!!

Just cause you don't understand what's going on don't mean it don't make no sense
And just cause you don't like it, don't mean it ain't no good

True. Anything is possible with good backup and speed.
