Great point earned. Going to be interesting to see who starts between the posts from now on too. Downside to me was Long coming on who just didn't get up to speed. We might have dropped into the relegation zone but this extra point could be invaluable come the end of the season. JWP put in a proper shift tonight. If we need a captain he gets my vote.

Great start to the New Year!
Well Done to Ralph and his Coaching/ Fitness staff for executing a well thought out and effective plan to capture a result.
Well Done also to all of the Players who operated with great tenacity and effort.
2019 prediction :
ANGUS will be knocking Gareth Southgate’s door down to become England’s new no.1 keeper.
Keep On Marching,

I think we are all seeing an improvement in performances and players and I agree Vick 4 points from 9 is better than we could have expected. I like what RH is doing with the players particularly defenders like bednarek, Yoshida,
vestergaard, who have definitely improved in the very short time he has been in charge. Yes we have slipped into the bottom 3 but we all know this league is a marathon not a sprint and we are now scoring goals, keeping a clean sheet and allowing youth and reserve players the chance to fight for a first team place. Gunn for McCarthy was a great move, give AM a break but also since Gunn did so well that he is going to have to fight to get back in the team. Xmas is a busy period for games and Derby in the cup gives the team a chance to become more consistent and hopefully a morale boosting win and cup run. I really believe that RH will keep us up and that we will improve over the next 5 months and stop being a soft touch and really become a competitive side again. coyr.

{Ed0333's Note - as I keep saying you’re biggest battle will be keeping you’re manager from the vultures that will circulate. I think he’s a breath of fresh air.


3.) 03 Jan 2019 07:32:28
I haven't seen this well defensively organised Saints team since Koeman's era! I 100% agree with Ralph that it really does not matter how the table looks at the moment. We have had very tough fixtures lately and when Ralph and the boys keep up the good work, I am sure we have more points than Huddersfield, Fulham, Burnley, Cardiff, Newcastle, Palace, Brighton and Bournemouth when the season ends. Or at least more than three of them! :)

Now some January business, dead wood out, freshness in, and we will be just fine. Finally proud to be a Saints fan and looking forward to every game!


4.) 03 Jan 2019 08:11:24
Liked seeing mccarthy dropped, made too many mistakes especially in the last few games. Could actually see Ralph getting pissed off with him.

If you’d offered me 7 points from that run of games before Ralph came in I’d have bit your hand off. Got an ‘easier’ set of games coming up and more training time between them so let’s see where we are in feb.


5.) 03 Jan 2019 10:00:25
Very good result when you consider that Morata cost more than our entire starting 11. I can see us getting 11 points from all the matches leading up to the end of Feb and that's being pessimistic. That's also considering we don't sign any world class players that will score plenty of goals haha

Leicester Away L
Everton Home D
Crystal Palace Home W
Burnley Away D
Cardiff Home W
Arsenal Away L
Fulham Home W

I can see him playing a weakened side against Derby a lot of academy players. Do you think the large introduction of academy players has happened because RH has been told he won't be able to sign anyone in January or because he thinks our main squad isn't good enough?


6.) 03 Jan 2019 13:03:22
We always developed academy players in the past. It's a welcome return to the old ways!

One game at a time but Ralph appears to have given the club its Mojo back.

2019 will see Saints improve no end.


7.) 03 Jan 2019 04:59:57
Hi ed

I think you're right and we as a club must recognise that the pool of good managers is very small and do everything to keep RH, we have experienced how much poor managers cost you financially plus poor player selection policy can have disastrous consequences and set back progress drastically. Let's hope this is remembered. coyr.

{Ed0333's Note - absolutely mate


8.) 03 Jan 2019 18:59:30
Great to be reading so many positive posts again. Ed’s right about the shadowy risk of RH being headhunted in the future, so all the more reason for us to enjoy the good times while they’re here! I would also hope that given the last few seasons, the board will do some serious succession planning so when he does move on, whenever that may be, either there is an external coach they can bring in of the same ilk, or better, a coach from within the club who has learned the ropes under RH, treating him like a mentor.

Its great to see some of the academy players get a chance as said before. I think that the academy players are likely to have a little better energy levels so that may be another motive for RH including them and testing if they’re ready. I think he’s likely to prove a better judge of player potential than previous coaches we have had.

RH has emphasised the type of player SFC would like to sign – young, high energy and physical. Signings not just for now but for the future. I therefore wouldn’t give too much credit to the gossip around players who do not fit that mould. Its inevitable that lazy stories will surface linking us to ex-Leipzig players, anyone in the Bundesliga or even ex-Saints players. Its better to use RH’s own description of what type of player he likes when assessing the likelihood of our interest in a player.


9.) 04 Jan 2019 08:43:06
I would like to see Wanyama returning, though. :)


 

 

21 Dec 2018 19:55:20
Can someone confirm the deal with Ings please. Does he automatically become a full time Saints player at the end of the year or is his deal an option to buy at an agreed price? Don't want to end up having the same issues as we had with Toby A a few years back.

cyprussaint

1.) 21 Dec 2018 22:57:00
We've got the option to buy and I believe the end price will be 20 mil.


2.) 22 Dec 2018 01:30:37
It's an obliged transfer at the end of his loan spell with a value of around 18 million so I heard. He will become a permanent Saint the end of the season.


3.) 22 Dec 2018 03:38:11
Most of the ITK's seem to think he's essentially already a southampton player - signed contracts etc just that at the point in which liverpool made him available it was quicker and easier to sign him as a loanee as a full transfer may not have gone through in time.

Similar thing to Bertrand iirc.

{Ed001's Note - actually the main consideration is you wanted to have more time to look at what damage the long term injuries had done to him.}


4.) 23 Dec 2018 11:53:30
I believe the fee is the instalment we are due in vvd so a done deal if we take the option.


 

 

10 Mar 2018 16:56:10
Shocking.
No heart, no fight. 11 individuals not playing as a team.
Too late to sack the manager. who do we bring in.
Yesterday we had our own fate in our hands. Now we don't.

cyprussaint

1.) 11 Mar 2018 00:19:17
No heart at all chris, although with 8 games I say sack him and get someone in until the end of season. He is not going to win another game. Silva perhaps.


2.) 11 Mar 2018 00:29:37
Yup. I'm starting to think the only reason players play better against Tottenham and the other big clubs, is to increase their value so that when we get relegated, they'll find a new club easy.


3.) 11 Mar 2018 07:50:23
And this is the big problem. No one wants to play for Southampton, no one cares enough. These players still get paid every week, win or lose. We're a feeder club, the only reason people join us is to get a bigger move away. There is no passion, honestly I think relegation will be the best thing for us, we can have a yard sale and get rid of all the deadweight. I'd rather have us playing in the Championship with players that want to actually play for the club where the badge means something to them.


4.) 11 Mar 2018 08:58:52
Did you see the Hojbjerg interview the guy clearly has pride and is hurting and Lemina although poor yesterday clearly feels the hurt. I just don’t know where we go from here almost feel like okay some of the kids and give them a chance although maybe unfair in them at this stage if the season with where we are. 3 weeks to next game need something to change badly.


5.) 11 Mar 2018 09:23:58
Hi Guys,
Unless Les Read has a manager ready to come in at the end of the season, I mean someone already agreed whether we're in the Premier League or Championship to come in straight away, I can't understand what this clown is still doing here. it's beyond my comprehension. Surely Les Read is not that naive to think this clown is the long term manager of this great club.


 

 

17 Jan 2018 17:51:51
Ed's I've heard rumour off a very poor source I've got to say that we are in for Sturridge on a loan with a buy option at the end of the season. Have you heard anything or is this another false one?

cyprussaint

{Ed002's Note - No, I am not aware of that.}


1.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:24
Thanks.


2.) 18 Jan 2018 00:04:21
Having seen Walcott move to Everton (he was surely someone we’d have been thinking of getting) I’d think it quite likely, very plausible that we might be interested in England Strikers Daniel Sturridge.

Knowing our recent lack of excitement though, we’ll probably sign his uncle, former Derby striker of the mid-90’s, Dean, by mistake!


 

 

06 Oct 2017 08:32:31
Linked with Walcott again. Not sure if he is the answer?

Possibly the worst performance I've seen for some time. Loads of individual mistakes, bad decision making and sloppy passing. The board have done the right thing though which leaves us enough time to salvage the season. It will take a few games to show change so don't expect miracles before the new year.

cyprussaint

1.) 09 Dec 2018 11:43:45
Thought it would be a bit of a disjointed performance - everyone playing would try to impress but that’s a pretty new team that haven’t played together and Ralph hasn’t had any time at all to work it out. Not expecting anything from Arsenal but I would take a cohesive performance that shows we’re heading in the right direction. It’s two weeks from now that we play Huddersfield away, so about 10 training sessions for Ralph to get his message through and pick his best 11 - that is now a must not lose - if we do we could be 5/ 6 points from safety at Christmas.
I know this won’t happen but I would maybe consider playing Bertrand at CB when he’s fit - he knows what it means to be strong defensively - hopefully with support and drillling into their brains the CBs can sort themselves out because with defending like that we have little chance especially seeing as we’re struggling to score.


 

 

20 Nov 2018 16:34:12
Haven't posted for a while but just going to put it out there that I don't think a change of manager is what we need (yet) . Our team isn't that good. We are weak in a lot of places. We lack goalscorer, we have nearly men midfielders and We lack leaders. Our central defenders are just about fit for the championship. We need a few decent signings to get us through this season and then we need an overhall. Then and only then should we look at the managers position.

cyprussaint

1.) 20 Nov 2018 17:24:11
I agree that the team needs 2 or 3 good quality players in certain positions but who would oversee the purchase of these players? If it's MH we've seen his choices already and they haven't improved the side. Also if we then changed manager would the new manager be expected to work with players that someone else signed or would the board sanction even more signings? By that time we could already have been relegated of course so the amount of managers that we would have to choose from would be vastly reduced. Personally I think now is the time to make a change to give the new incumbent time to assess the players he has at his disposal and to look at possible signings in January.


2.) 20 Nov 2018 21:04:14
Lack a goalscorer? Errrm we do have quite a few with the likes of Ings, Austin, Gabbi who all have all shown they can be clinical. However we are currently blessed with a rubbish manager who literally isn't coaching the players right. We also have Gallagher and Obafembi who are long overdue to make a first team appearance. They could be, especially gallagher, the solution to our lack of goals. The defence is our weakness but then when you have Vestergaard sat on the bench it is going to be.


3.) 21 Nov 2018 09:04:21
Yep I agree would like too see Hoedt Dropped and Vestergaard starting. Ings and Gabbiadini are actually very good goalscorers and as for the midfield. Lemina and Hojbjerg are brilliant and we have good options off the bench with Romeu, Davis etc. Also Hojbjerg would make a great captain.


4.) 21 Nov 2018 13:46:20
Can’t see us going too wrong with a ball playing or counter attacking manager and a starting XI of;

McCarthy
Cedric Vestergaard Yoshida Bertrand
Lemina Hojbjerg
Gabbiadini Armstrong JWP/ Moi
Ings

With Gunn, Austin, Redmond, Romeu, JWP/ Moi, Targett and Stephens on the bench - genuinely don’t see how this is severely worse off than under Puel - obviously nowhere near the Poch days but still definitely not bottom six material.


 

 

26 Jun 2018 17:01:54
Danny Ings leaving Liverhampton. Apparently cheap money and looking for first team football. Worth a punt as far as I'm concerned.

cyprussaint

1.) 26 Jun 2018 17:53:29
Well it would be a sort of homecoming considering he was born in Winchester. However, he is no real improvement on any of our current strikers and would only make sense if we got rid of a few of our current ones, which we haven't done, and doesn't seem we are doing yet. I do quite like him though despite his injuries and wouldn't mind him at the club.


2.) 26 Jun 2018 19:56:15
Ings is a really good player whose career has been blighted by injury, he plays the no 10 role really well and would be a great addition to the squad. Armstrong will be interesting as he is a goal scoring all action midfield player.


 

 

18 May 2018 21:03:17
End of season and we are all starting to look at ins and outs. One I don't agree with so far is getting rid of FF. He had a really poor season but prior to that he was one of the best in the Prem. If we sell him we need to buy in a second choice keeper. Doesn't make any sense to me:

cyprussaint

{Ed0333's Note - FF is the second choice keeper


1.) 19 May 2018 13:05:24
Think this is the point that FF should go and we use the Academy. Get rid of the older members of the squad.


2.) 19 May 2018 13:51:59
Are you happy to take the risk that if Alex Mc gets an injury or is suspended for a while that an academy player steps in then? I’d rather have FF sitting waiting for his chance. At least he has experience, and like I said has been very good for us previously.


3.) 19 May 2018 19:29:40
Same people who complained about Forster not having any competition for his position now want to get rid of him and leave McCarthy with no competition. makes sense 🙄.


4.) 20 May 2018 00:02:30
All I'm getting at is the pathway to the first team seems to be getting harder. Is the talent not there?


5.) 20 May 2018 06:10:26
Anybody know how harry lewis been doing lately?


6.) 20 May 2018 08:43:43
After a solid start with the Tangerines he lost his place in the starting line-up and spent the final stages on the bench. He went through a difficult time in January but says this has made him a better player. let's hope he returns with confidence intact.

The problem with FF is that we now no longer know what we are going to get. That great run of form he had a couple of seasons back was at a different time and a different team. He showed little signs of such ability or form before that, nor since. Also, we have seen players like Joe Hart, Rob Green, David James etc go from a place of consistent high ability to the startling depths of low confidence and loss of some of the most basic skills of goalkeeping. There’s a lot of pressure on the player between the sticks and more often than not, after a period of poor performance a goalkeeper struggles to recover fully. If the likes of Hart can’t, with so much positive experience to fall back on, its hard to believe Forster can when he has only managed one good season of form.

However, the major issue for the club now is that its not as simple as saying we need a new goalkeeper, a new centre back, a new striker, competition for places here and there. With the RK seemingly confirming the club’s return to selling our best and buying younger players to develop, it might be that we have no choice between FF or AM to be sold. FF may attract little or no attention after this season and so it may be AM who moves on should someone come in for him.

I hope this summer we won’t be quite so desperate to make sales as we have the majority of the VVD money to spend which could see us bring in three or four gifted young players to strengthen the team and provide competition. Also, I hope that on the back of such underperformance, the players have not done enough to attract serious interest from the bigger teams yet that would tempt the board.


7.) 20 May 2018 12:12:19
One thing I don't wanna see is Joe Heart coming to us. Money could and should be spent elsewhere.


8.) 20 May 2018 12:26:01
I don't understand why you're saying we're going back to selling our best players (for starters, we never stopped doing that! ) .

But still, it's not like this was a deliberate policy, we simply developed good players and generally received offers for them that were too good to turn down.

I did read your post about this Figo, and it struck me as you reading between the lines and finding things that just weren't really there? To me, the Southampton way meant that we play attractive football (which I think is the biggest thing RK was talking about here), bring youngsters through and generally run the club in a sound fashion with long-term development in mind.


9.) 20 May 2018 14:19:51
I read the RK interview with hope that we would have some clarity on the lessons learned and an outline of the strategy the club will deploy to avoid a repeat of this season.

Unfortunately, the interview is an awful read given that it appears to have been typed verbatim but what RK is saying is quite clear. No interpretation is required on transfer policy when he states the following:
‘Maybe we didn’t deal with the transfer policy right because we wanted to consolidate the team and for the very first time we didn’t sell a player we didn’t want to sell and we left the Southampton Way a little bit. Possibly that was a reason. ’
‘…if you do the net on buys and sells possibly one of the biggest things we got away from was the pathway to the top clubs last summer. When Sadio Mane came and he told us he wanted to be the best football player in the world he truly believed that. He came and played his two years and he went and now he’s playing in the Champions League final. We allowed that pathway and we were an important part of that and we should be proud of that but we got away from that.
‘Maybe our ambition made us reach for a pathway that wasn’t ours. The consolidation of a team and the not selling of any players possibly exactly was one of the biggest mistakes we made as a board last summer. I think our club decision to consolidate last year and hang on to core players was for Southampton Football Club wasn’t the right time to do that. That definitely hurt us. ’

In short, consolidating the squad was wrong, not selling players (not just VVD) was wrong and was perhaps based on the club incorrectly believing we know longer needed to do that. That was the wrong path. By then saying we should be proud of being a stepping stone and developing players for other clubs to benefit, he is clearly stating this is the right path as this is where our success came from.

I disagree with you entirely if you truly believe that this was not a transfer policy. It most certainly was and was a foundation of the Southampton way. We develop young players to integrate them into the first team and strengthen from within as we do not have the financial clout to compete with the top half of the premier league. The whole focus of the Southampton way is for there to be a blueprint in place, followed from the youth teams up, to make the loss of coaching staff or players incidental as someone else will be in place to step in as seamlessly as possible. Player and head coach turnover was expected. Not only were we intending to be a stepping stone for players but for coaching staff too. The Southampton Way blueprint included the general tactic of playing attractive, attacking, possession based football, but you’ve filtered out the rest if that is all you think the Southampton Way is.

Note that RK does not use an example of a good young player coming up from the youth ranks and now breaking into the first team like Josh Sims. Instead, he uses the example of Sadio Mane who used us as a stepping stone. It is clear that to RK and the club see the latter is the Southampton Way and the thing to be proud of.

11.) 21 May 2018 19:14:44
Sad reality but the matter of fact is we sell our best players because let's face it, when teams like Manchester United or Liverpool come calling then it's a no brainer choosing them over us. Maybe as fans we wear our rose-tinted glasses a bit too tight and forget that the players coming through never grew up supporting the Saints. I think only Targett is the genuine saints fan in the team atm. I do not fault any players for leaving, as football is a short career and it's natural for people to not take a risk on ifs and buts and maybes regarding Southampton reaching the pinnacle of the league and suddenly compete consistently in the champions league while being able to pay benchwarmers 90k a week wages and being a giant global brand. Besides, would anyone really want to keep a player who doesn't want to be here? (Re: VVD) It just makes no sense. There isn't much we can do. Moreover, the fact that we somewhat built a reputation as a selling club is what benefits us at the moment. Up and coming players see us as a ticket to bigger teams and be a better footballer as a result. Say if you are a young talented footballer who isn't the finished product yet and no big clubs are taking a chance on you and your only entry to possibly the most watched league in the world is through a midtable club, would you go to a team who's players seldom go to a big team or a team where they sell players to the biggest teams in the country? I truly believe Mane and VVD to mention the least see us as a stepping stone. This is what makes us a better prospect than say Watford or Stoke. Players who arrive are more determined and motivated to give their all as they consider being here means having better chances to reach their goals and move their career to the next level than other teams. When we hold back players against their wishes, won't potential players lose interest in joining us? Seeing that the ticket to the bigger stage that used to be hand fed at St. mary's itself has now been cut off. Although I might be interpreting this a bit too forward. I have no idea what the southampton way brings in the short term. Plus we sold VVD anyways and he didn't have the best last half season with us. So whatever model we used during the start of season, whether it's a far cry from the southampton way or a misinterpertation of it or an attempted effort to develop it, to me, has failed.

I can only see us getting 4 more points. Any differing views?

cyprussaint

1.) 03 Apr 2018 07:32:10
We need to beat both Swansea and Bournemouth, and then one of Everton and Leicester. That'd get us to 37 points which is probably just about enough I reckon.

Doable still, but i'd say this is the first time I'd see us as more likely to go down than stay up. If we play like we did on Saturday we wouldn't beat a non league side.


2.) 03 Apr 2018 11:00:01
I'm hoping the result puts everything into perspective for MH. He's probably not to blame but at the same time, I saw a lot of route one football that you would expect from Hughes and it did not work once.
Again 4-4-2 not a good formation for our squad. Tadic and Redmond are not good wingers. We don't have a midfielder that can play as part of a 4-4-2.
From what I've seen 4-3-3 would probably be out best formation to play.


3.) 03 Apr 2018 11:57:23
I agree with 123, in terms of it is now looking more likely to go down. That said I am not ready to give up, even if some of the players appear to.

I recall Figo predicting that 34 points will be enough, even if this is right we need at least 2 wins, but I still think it will require more. think 8 points is required, but personally I can't see where they will come from.

WBA aside, we look the worst in the division based on recent games and I was hoping for the manager bounce. I would say the performance on Saturday was on par with any poor performances I have seen.


4.) 03 Apr 2018 17:17:41
Something has to click at some point it surely has to
The players are at a all time low but some result that we all think will go the other way will come to us and give confidence it’s got to
Yes they’ve played the worst football I can remember in the last 2 games but Hughes is no mug and he’s already said he will be dropping the 4 and 5 out of ten players and try to get some momentum with the rest
The thing is with that attitude shown we’d struggle playing eleven players from our last 2 away performances
I’m not ready to throw the towel in yet but as Charlie said
It’s going to be the sort of escape act that Houdini would have been proud of get out of this
I’m off to arsenal Sunday with slight optimism only slight
But that’s all we’ve got at the moment
Thing is Huddersfield have a really tough run in their last 4 games are awful and I honestly can’t see them getting anything from those games
So if we can keep them in our sights and keep stoke below us we’ve got a chance.

Arsenal (A) Loss
Chelsea (H) Loss
Leicester (A) Draw (if we're lucky! )
B'Muff (H) Win
Everton (A) Win
City (H) Loss

7 points maximum.

Huddersfield will be our closest rivals

Brighton (A) Draw
Watford (H) Loss
Chelsea (A) Loss
Everton (H) Win
City (A) Loss
Arsenal (H) Loss

4 points.

We would be above them on goal difference only.

Stoke will get a max of 4 points and be relegated.

Palace will get 10 points and be safe, Swansea will get 6-9 points too.

We must catch Huddersfield.

You forgot Swansea on your list.

Diggy5471, I said Swansea would get between 6 and 9 points, which takes them beyond what we are likely to get. I don't think they're in the mix anymore.

No we’ve got to play them.

Great individual player but certainly hasn’t got a team mentality from what I’ve seen.
I wouldn’t want him.

I’m pretty sure Kelvin will be in charge for the FA Cup game. I’m also pretty sure he has the players respect. Whether he has the tactical no how I’m not sure.

Agree with you about elyonoussi. He just doesn't look up to the task. The game would have suited Simms.

That depends if we see Bertrand of a couple of years ago back or the sulk that has been around recently.

And disagree about bringing back Bertrand. Targett has done enough now for me to be in front of him in the pecking order.

I like him. Think he got targeted by Leicester once they saw he would react. Ralph made a mistake I think in not taking him off sooner. Think the lad has huge potential and will be our first choice right back in years to come. Judging him on a few games with a new manager still tinkering with systems would be harsh. Time will tell.

I actually thought it was one of our best offensive displays. Sadly with the mistakes that they made our defence is championship quality at best.
