Pointed out a few weeks ago that we should be targeting the next five games, looking for 10 points, but probably only getting 6-8 and needing to get out of the relegation zone.

9 points and 3 clear of safety I will take for sure. If Danny stays fit we will be fine.

Bar an Antonio performance and just a poor half against Newcastle, obviously we are still shaky when leading but the fact that we are leading so often is a maddive plus - beating the three teams below us is huge.

We now have a settled back line, McCarthy and Stephens playing well, Long still not clinical but causing problems are Ings, JWP and our tricky wingers off the bench giving us a multi-faceted threat. A full back/ versatile defender (would have loved Jedvaj) in January and an AM maybe is what I think is realistic, but we mustn't splurge heavily.

With Villa, Bournemouth and Brighton now dropping like stones, were right in amongst things and if we can continue to pick up points and not go on any losing runs to February we're well placed.

che CRY TOT lei WOL cry liv in that run - hopefully muster 6 points and leave us on 24 with 14 games to go and a kind run in wouldn't look too bad.

Another two points drift from our hands, but even as stoppage time approached there wasn't a shred of me that was nervous, I just knew we weren't going to win.

Sure I'd have taken the point before the game and the performance was good, dare I say acceptable, but it can't keep happening can it.

I think the thing that struck me most was at full time - regardless of the situation Arsenal and Emery are in - we are now a team so poor that the opposition fans boo when their side can't beat us at home. We hammered Arsenal 4-0 a few years ago. But we are now considered THAT bad. Rightly so. But that really got to me today.

Anyway. Watford up next. We all know what is needed. Norwich after that. Again we know what is needed. Everton may well be getting a new manager bounce soon because they're much better than Silva is making them out to be. Villa take on Newcastle tomorrow. Suddenly we will begin to look a lot more adrift than the table belies. Hence why the next two games are so so important.

A stat I found out today which I find as worrying as it is remarkable is that since Moussa scored his wonderful at Bramall Lane on SEPTEMBER 14TH, only Ings and Ward-Prowse have scored in the league for us. And considering how poor Ward-Prowse has been, I at least see now why Ralph can't drop him. That really is worrying.

I was at least happy with the set up today, wasn't happy leaving our life wires on the bench but it worked well against that Arsenal back line - we need to get Djenepo and Boufal involved from the start in the next two games, we can't be playing five at the back and inviting them onto us. But it did at least seem more like a Ralph performance so overall I'm probably moderately satisfied.

Away from the game, I will need some intel from one of you guys or maybe an Ed about these murmurings surrounding a Red Bull takeover akin to what happened at Leipzig? Is this a majority shareholder attempt if true and what on Earth is the plan!? Much obliged.

I’ve heard the red bull rumour aswell
And to be fare if Christian Horner wants to play in the centre of defence he’s welcome to it
I’ve already ear marked vestappen up front due to his Aggression I think he will do well
If anything red bull will give us wings

Sorry had to write this.

In reply, reality is that Arsenal would score some when. Not (for a very long time) because we were awful and going to make a mistake, but simply the quality of some of Arsenals' players. We only drew because we failed to take our chances, simple as that. I think they were booing because we absolutely made them look second rate, we out fought them, out played them. We were superb and out inter play, passing, crispness was superb, at times breathtaking!

The removal of Romeu from midfield was like releasing us from chains. In stead of slow play, negative passing, poor man marking . we were dynamic, fast, clever . and a joy to watch!

I actually HOPE RH sticks to the 4 at the back and keeps Armstrong in midfield. There was always doubt about Djenepo and Boufal playing due to travel/ international commitments. But when they were introduced, Arsenal were run ragged. To be honest, I think RH should have kept one on the bench and strengthened the back/ midfield. We didn't need both on as we were winning at that point.


3.) 24 Nov 2019 19:00:13
As for takeover . any takeover is better than what we have.
A lot of criticism is aimed at Kat L but come on, her father dies and she takes on a football club - just maybe she wanted to mourn.
She has kept 20% (i think) but I am sure she is disappointed with the lack of 'visibility' by the new owner!
Bring back Nicola Cortese :-)

Finally some good news. Friday's earnings of all players and coaches have been donated to the Saints Foundation.

And they've been in at Staplewood over the weekend.

At least they've got the message.

I think that it should have been the whole weeks wages after the debacle of Friday night.

Ross Wilson has left for Rangers.

Does that count as another Liverpool steal for Gerrard?

Hope we have someone else lined up who can rekindle the black box magic or January could be another slog 😬.

Hi Saint, Rangers fan, in peace.
How highly do you guys rate Wilson and how do you think he will perform on a limited budget?


2.) 15 Oct 2019 14:55:12
i think he would do very well on a limited budget especially if he involves the black box theory. most of our bad buys are when we have spent big.


3.) 15 Oct 2019 18:34:36
Seconded - don’t give him big money and you’ll be fine!


 

 

30 Aug 2019 20:51:15
Seems Elyounoussi is joining FF on loan at Celtic - they've already done enough for us recently 😂

If we could ship a CB out to lighten the wage bill I'd call that a pretty decent window - looking forward to seeing Boufal and Djenepo tear it up as well, both look like quality if they cement their places in the side.

Nice to see competition for attacking places in a saints side, haven't had such depth there in many yesrs.

Seems especially quiet considering it's a transfer window - only two weeks left already!

Realistically at this point, with Valery having been sick for about a year, I would half expect a single acquisition at full back. Having heard very little except for constant murmurings every January and June, I would expect this to be Joakim Maehle for £12-14m.

It is also the wise choice given Cedric is off and we have a dearth of choices over the age of 20 in that position.

Apart from that, can't see anything happening with regards outgoings - maybe a loan deal made permanent but highly doubt it.

Better than our January positions in the last few years splashing 10s of millions on a load of tosh.

Although I am (understandably) very excited by our situation at the moment, the underlying stats seem to suggest that Ralph may be onto something a little bit special with the lads.

28 points in 22 games has us projected to end the season on 48, our highest tally since Koeman in 15-16.

27 goals in 22 games projects us to get 47 goals, our highest since Koeman in 15-16.

Excluding that game of which we shall not speak, our defence is in the top half and, you've guessed it, would be our best return since 15-16.

Since that game, our form is sixth best in the league, only behind the current top five, and we are on our best run of league form since - YUP - January/ February 2016 (16 from 18).

That run included wins against Watford, West Brom, West Ham and Swansea; this time we've beaten Tottenham at home and Leicester, Chelsea and Villa away. Not only that, we're actually keeping clean sheets and retaining leads, or coming from behind to beat second place on their own patch!

It's also the first time we've won three straight away games since the start of 2015 in those Halcyon days under Poch.

Basically, if we keep this up for a full season, we may well be back where we want to be. We may only be six/ seven clear of danger but with our run in and the way we're going I'm looking more to Sheffield Utd four above us in sixth and an outside shot at Europe.

I can't see any of the current bottom three going beyond 37/ 38 so once we're at 40 we can really look forward.

Almost end of statistical rant but one final thought on yesterday. To look at where we were 11 matches ago and how desolate the club seemed, to go to the ground of the team that emabarrassed our club and outplay them and deservedly win, from behind, without letting our heads drop (we were 1-0 down after quarter of an hour in that game as well) speaks volumes not only of what Ralph has done, but for everyone to turn it around and finally find something that works.

We seem balanced, confident and of course having Danny on course for 25 and fifth highest scorer in the top 5 leagues helps but Stephens and Bednarek are partnering up beautifully after I and most of us wrote Jack off, Armstrong is just superb, and we have our tricky wingers contributing some end product.

We are scoring goals, conceding less, keeping clean sheets, coming from behind, playing as we want to. We'll still slip up at home to Villa and the like but that's part and parcel of the league.

And when it's quiet on here from the results side of things you know things are going well! And oh wouldn't it be nice to go to Anfield and ruin their party in a few weeks' time.

WE. MARCH. ON!

1.) 12 Jan 2020 22:12:25
Saint G
WE have had a few discussions in the recent past over Southampton, especially with regards to Romeu, negative play, poor defending and so on .
Your post perfectly sums up where we are. I absolutely believe that Ralph was so immersed in not losing games that we were not trying to win. You had to watch the way OR, JWP and PEH passed the ball among themselves and then invariably back, to see if we scored it was definitely luck! Even DI was having to come back and try and get the ball. Once you realise that your attack is more likely to score than your defense is not going to concede, you take on a positive attitude.

Ralph has also stopped playing players out of position (thank god), he has clearly sorted out his differences with certain players and now plays the best players in their correct positions.

I actually think our midfield as it was, was making us so easy to beat. OR was awful! slow, poor tackling, non existent tracking of players, and never looking for a forward pass let alone an incisive pass!
JWP running around like a headless chicken, chasing shadows, very few decent passes, almost obsessed with playing the safe ball. PEH absolutely awful, awful distribution, giving away unnecessary fouls, never looking for the defense splitting pass!

Queue . Stuart Armstrong! Queue JWP taking on the traditional number 10 role . exit OR . and what do we have
we have a midfield that can battle, win balls and then look to break, look to pass to an attacker!

So now instead of DI having to come find the ball, he is doing those runs, asking for the ball and getting it!

Stuart Armstrong has totally changed the dynamic of the team! we are now fast and dangerous . back passes are very rare and have a look at players in front of the ball . up to 8! and players closing down in the opponents half . up to 6!

COYR

SAint G's statistics are spot on! we are on a roll .
and the players feel unbeatable now . !


2.) 13 Jan 2020 02:26:58
It's no coincidence that after the introduction of Arsmtrong in our first 11 we have been getting our best run of results since ages. What I like now is our consistency with picking our first 11 and starting formation of choice. Stephens JWP and Cedric have improved massively as well. I know it isn't right to complain with how things are going recently but if Redmond and Hojbjerg can just up their game again (not saying they've been bad, but I know and believe they can be better, because they had better performances for us in the past) and reach the lofty heights they set themselves before then we will be seriously in a shout for top 8.


3.) 13 Jan 2020 06:33:11
Good to read the positive posts on the recent success and elevation of our team. However I felt irritated by. comments directed at our Manager from a certain Wesley Hoedt. He appears a natural ‘BIG HEAD’ and is in Cuckoo Land regarding his past Saints performances. Perhaps when his Agents SPIN to unsuspecting Clubs is exhausted Hoedt will finally reach the level he aspires to and deservedly take his place in his SUNDAY PUB TEAM! K. O. M.


4.) 13 Jan 2020 14:06:53
Whether it's on purpose or not he has effectively closed the door on his journey with us. I understand his frustration at not even being given a fresh start but Bednarek took his chance with both hands. Ralph will not be leaving any time soon and the club can afford to lose all three of Hoedt, Vestergaard, and Yoshida providing we sign Danso permanently and get one center back either this window or in the summer.


5.) 13 Jan 2020 15:53:59
I agree that Hoedt and Vestergaard can go but I would like to keep Yoshida for 1 more season. He's been a good servant to Saints over the years and he still does a decent job when asked.

{Ed002's Note - I expect Yoshida to move on.}


6.) 13 Jan 2020 16:21:02
I agree would love to have seen Yoshida stay on, his dedication and effort is 100% - although i realise dedication and effort don't keep out goals!
As for Hoedt, i wouldn't waste my time reading the article. I have never ever known a defender that had two awful attributes and regularly showed us them in games!
i) dribbling (otherwise known as fart assing around) with the ball in dangerous places when the easy option was there all the time.
ii) passing up to 20/ 30ft in the wrong direction. I don't mean backwards, i mean when attempting to pass to another player would regularly miss the player by a mile! and then we were on the back foot!

Vestergard is actually a good player and very quick! but again prone to unforced errors.

While on defenders, i really am not sure what Jack S has done to his game to remove the errors, but remove them he has! i do wonder as i have said before, that the whole team was trying not to lose and putting unnecessary pressure and panic on themselves. Now they are much more on the front foot it's like a huge weight has been taken off the defence!

To be fair to them the midfield was giving them no protection at all!

On another note, we have not mentioned or given any credit to Danny Rohl's replacement . Richard Kitzbichler. He is not so vocal as Ralph and tends to stay in the background but i know he and ralph work very well together.


7.) 13 Jan 2020 20:22:16
I do think Ralph must have seemed a bit lost when Danny left, but just watching him go to the fans he seems like one of us, really up for it now.

On the subject of players, as always we are probably six from where we would want to be. Get Fraser off the books, allow Cedric and Hoedt to go, Yosh when he’s ready, get Maehle in and a CB - I like Vestergaard and really want him to stay and come good - PLAY DANSO. I would like to think he’s worth keeping but maybe give him a cup run or a few league games.

McQueen, Carrillo, Lemina, Romeu can go. Elyounoussi is flourishing in Scotland and he was as bad as Stephens has been so maybe worth another go?

Maybe one more body in the middle of the park but not needed right now. If Danny gets injured we’ll struggle but so would any team outside the top 6, and the rest seem good to chip in at the moment.


8.) 13 Jan 2020 22:23:24
I think a bit disrespectful to list Sam McQueen alongside CArrillo, Lemina . Sam had an ACL injury and although out on loan, was a good player for us. I have heard that he will never be the same player again. CArrillo was just awful . and Lemina up his own a**!
:-)
Elyounoussi is flourishing for the the simple reason that the scottish league is not just very weak but a lot slower!


9.) 14 Jan 2020 02:13:51
It's sad to see the big mess Ross Wilson and Reed had left for Crocker and Glover to clean up. Our list of deadwood is bigger than I can recall in a long time. Getting Hoedt, Vestergaard, Lemina, and Carillo off the books is a big challenge in itself. Cedric, Long, Yoshida, if they do leave at the end of their contracts I believe they won't have any trouble finding new teams, though I'd like Long to stay for one more season. Sims, McQueen, Boufal, Reed are players that I'd like to see stay but sadly it seems they're going to be off as well. Both Elyounoussi and Forster been performing well in their respective loan clubs. I don't mind them staying. If all the players mentioned left then I'd like to see a Center Back, Winger, Right Back, and Striker recruited. 4 signings seems to be the average we make in a transfer window anyways.


10.) 14 Jan 2020 23:50:22
Perfect Decicion! By Ralph to reassure Che that he is very much in his future plans at SFC. I predict that once Che plays regularly and opens his scoring account he will go from strength to strength and form a lethal attack partnership with Danny especially since the upgrading of the supply route via Stuart Armstrong. and a re born JWP. KOM.


 

 

01 Jan 2020 17:13:28
16 points in 8!
Fourth in the form table over that time.
Danny is on fire.
Eleventh in the league.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Great team. Hopeful. Watford doing what we would have and play five at the back and look to withstand pressure and be clinical - something we can't do.

Back five is fine, it's settled, PLAY DANSO, but it's fine. Toefal is back which is good.

No Armstrong is a blow, but front four of Redmond Djenepo Ings and Obafemi looks versatile and dangerous, with Boufal off the bench to come. We should definitely score but still cautious, considering our last televised home game ended 0-9.

SaintGGsy

1.) 01 Dec 2019 08:26:28
0-1 against the bottom side after 77 minutes. And we won. Unbelievable. Hopefully this’ll turn our season around - heads didn’t drop, we kept going and you just had a feeling JWP was going to pull a rabbit out of the hat.

Superb. Sets us up well for the next few games but not happy yet - onto Norwich.

{Ed047's Note - it was a great comeback GG and what a free kick, really enjoyed the game.


2.) 01 Dec 2019 16:47:40
For once we were quite watchable in the second half which is nice to see - if Long were any other PL forward he’d have had a hat trick - chances are coming now it’s just about being clinical.


3.) 02 Dec 2019 13:59:23
Hopefully, RH goes with the same starting 11 that finished the game on Saturday. We looked like a different side with Boufal, he brings a spark of unpredictability to our attack that I don't feel we get with Redmond. Watching Redmond he's always looking to beat the man and shift the ball onto his right foot whereas Boufal was whipping balls on his left foot and trying to go around defenders.
A needed 3 points that were picked up but there's still quite a lot of polishing to do. We needlessly gave the ball away plenty of times, Jack Stephens made a mistake that lead up to the goal, McCarthy made a quality save to deny it from being 2-0. The press didn't work quite as well as it could of but this will get better if we keep the same formation.

Hopefully the first home win is a sign of better things to come. We could potentially go unbeaten for the next 4 games and pick up between 8-10 points which would be great. Onwards and upwards!


4.) 03 Dec 2019 16:58:43
I have been saying for some time how slow and predictable our play has been, slowed down by midfield particularly. As has been said before, Redmond sprints a few feet, stops, looks inside, and you always know he is 'shifting ball onto his right foot'

It is not until you remove Romeu from midfield that you realise what a difference it makes - although JWP in the first half seemed to think no matter where he was on the pitch he had to pass backwards!

Boufal has to play every game, he is out and out our best playmaker, with Djenepo those two are a deadly combination. Hopefully Ralph has now realised that trying to win is far better than trying not to lose! and we have the attacking players to do it!
COYR.


 

 

05 Nov 2019 17:27:26
Right. This run up to Christmas is now the make or break for us. I said I'd reassess our season objectives after the next 3 games 3 games ago, and with an aggregate of 2-12 and 1 point, my optimism for the top half (or even 15) is gone.

It is all well and good turning up away at City to only lose narrowly, but if we can't get riled up for a home game with Norwich, we have no chance. The passion, desire and determination shouldn't only exist when there's something massive on the line. Now it has to be shown that this isn't just another 'we were crap but look how good we did, now we're going to go back to half arsing it for a month'.

In our next 7 games - taking us to near halfway through the season, we play EVE h, ARS a, WAT h, NOR h, NEW a, WHU h, AVL a.

We currently have 8 points, and realistically need to be around 20 to keep things on track and away from immediate danger.

Each of the those games is very much winnable. Realistically, we will get 8, but should be looking at 13.

To do that, we need to play Danso. And play Højbjerg not in a position he has never played in his career. And maybe not play donkeys in the middle of the park.

If we play Boufal, Djenepo, Armstrong, Ings and Redmond in the same side at the same time, we could be playing attacking football like Leicester. If we play JWP, Romeu and Long, we'll be playing like Barnet.

We need to play in a way we wouldn't want to face from our opposition, and if Vestergaard, Bertrand and Cedric start playing like every game matters, then we will be fine.

If we stay stuck in our ways, we're due bearing the full brunt of our mediocrity with second tier football come August.

SaintGGsy

1.) 06 Nov 2019 14:09:15
Totally agree! I'd like to see the following team play on Saturday against Everton -

McCarthy
Cedric Bednarek Danso Bertrand/ McQueen
Hojbjerg
Djenpo Armstrong Boufal
Ings Redmond.


2.) 06 Nov 2019 16:15:05
Good post, gone too quiet on here and in the stadium. The thing is, losing marginally is seen as brave away to city, fair enough. but as you say if we get turned over by sides we should be competitive against it’s pointless, literally.


3.) 08 Nov 2019 18:31:22
It seems that many are in agreement that he needs to ditch the JWP/ OR midfield pairing. One of the knock on effects of these two is that PEH (when he plays in position! ) is trying to cover too much ground to make up for their inadequacies. He needs dynamic players around him to utilise his skills/ vision fully.
We all want a much more attacking side, Ralph seems to want to play this more defensive side? Trouble is any team is now looking at the way we play and can almost ignore both the threat and strength of our midfield, simply because our midfield has neither threat or strength!
As i posted before, if you are slow (like JWP and OR) you'd better be a damn good tackler . sadly neither of these are good at that either - i agree with the team selections above.
If tomorrow he continues to play the same midfield and style, we are on a very slippery slope to relegation.

Would love the N’Dicka rumours to come to fruition, and happy with that potential front line. If we give Boufal another go and bring in one of those wingers, plus Adams and one of those two right backs for around £60m, I’d be delighted.

Him and Danny would be a great pair. Also make us less of a ‘nice team’. He certainly has the ability to do well for us. £20m and I’d think about it but even then it’s pretty pricey for a forward who’s been relegated and only scored a dozen goals this season.

Reckon if Ralph stays another two years we’ll have our next crop of Liverpool-bound homegrown stars - Klarer, Sims, Obafemi, Valery, Smallbone etc

Forster, if Sheffield U don’t want him, I could see going to Stoke to replace Butland for £3/ 4m or maybe even Huddersfield as Lossl wants out.
Cedric shouldn’t be too hard a sell if his loan move isn’t made permanent - 10/ 12m.
Boufal I want to be given a chance, if not I reckon someone in the Netherlands or France would want to take him on for £12/ 13m.
Clasie would also be desirable in that part of the world - if not he could suit a very open Norwich side for 6/ 8m.

The rest are going to be hard - Carrillo I want to see more of, if not we’re never getting out £19m back (thanks Pellegrino), Stephens probably won’t want to drop down a league but he probably belongs at Forest or Swansea. Gallagher in a similar situation and standard.

Elyounoussi and Hoedt I pray some poor gullible sod fancies them. Leeds seem pretty bonkers, maybe they’re part of the Zidane rebuild at Real. God knows. But with that much cash and salary space - even more if Lemina wants out - there’s room for two young signings and two (CB and ST) that are a bit more wow. I am quite excited about this window - as long as we’re more noisy than Spurs this time!

Back four must be the way forward especially for the next few games. 4-2-3-1 actually suits our players, option to 4-2-2-2 with the players available to come on.

McCarthy Cedric Bednarek DANSO Bertrand Hojbjerg Armstrong Redmond JWP Boufal? Ings

Agree from other posts to maybe hold one of Boufal/ Djenepo on the bench, tough call but maybe Djenepo’s pace off the bench would be more influential, but I’d rather he played longer. Not sure. But looking at how Watford, West Ham, Newcastle, Norwich and Villa are playing, we shouldn’t be scared.

Christmas will also be tough but looking at our fixtures from February 8 onwards, our run in is kind so staying in touch until then is satisfactory to me.

Play like that more and for gods sake will you take your bloody chances. Cedric’s square ball to Obafemi, Redmond not taking an early shot and squaring to Djenepo for the arsenal defend to get back. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH.
