So, this is the squad for the season what do we all think?
Angus Gunn Alex McCarthy
Jannik Vestergaard Jan Bednarek Jack Stephens Kevin Danso Maya Yoshida
Ryan Bertrand Sam McQueen Cedric Soares Yan Valery
Oriol Romeu James Ward-Prowse Pierre Hoibjerg Stuart Armstrong
Nathan Redmond Moussa Dejenpo Sofiane Boufal Danny Ings Shane Long Che Adams
Michael Obafemi

I would say Hasenhuttl has done a good job thinning the squad.
I would like to see us get rid of Stephens, McQueen and long in January and look to buy a new wing back and a new defensive midfielder.

I seriously don't think we'll be getting rid of Shane Long, he has a year left on his contract. He's the exact player that RH wants to work with. I think he knows his place in the squad, a pair of fresh legs we can look to when we're up in a game that will chase down the ball and apply pressure.
Maybe we'll be able to loan out Stephens and McQueen in Jan. Can't see people wanting to buy them. Again though Stephens is good as a backup option.
I think it's the squad RH wanted, a good mix of youth and experience. I think we might also see a few academy players make the jump from the reserves to the first team: Will Smallbone, Jake Vokins, Dan N'Lundulu.

I can't see us wanting to spend any more money in Jan, we'll work with what we have and promote any academy players if they're good enough or if enough injuries occur.

When u think Chelsea at one point could have had hazard Salah and de bruyne :o.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2019 17:08:41
And Bertie!
And Romeu!
And Corky!

Hazard, Salah and Debruyne would be an amazing combination, with a number nine (maybe Tammy abraham) in front of them just banging the goals in. Strange how they let so much go so easily. Hindsight eh?!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2019 08:50:59
Mind you I've thought about it and lets face it mourinho never has given youth a chance wherever he has been. Oh the striker you mentioned to bang the goals in: Lukaku always has scored goals.
Anyway back to saints poor first half last night and much improved second half. Boufal didn't quite hit the notes I thought he would have, and here's to hoping redderz isn't too badly injured as he's the only player who's shown up so far this season and we will struggle without his dynamic dribbling and runs.

Slow start to the season or is the league table just a false impression?

I think we lack pace and don't seem to have as much get up and go as I'd like. We are better than we were at most times post Koeman's era, but still to me seems a long way off where he had us and how we were playing

Bit disappointed we didn't re-sign Adam Lallana off Liverpool this summer and didn't get a better established centre back (the new lad could be smashing though) and perhaps we could have got a versatile hard working full back too

I'd say we will do ok this season and are likely to be one of 4 or 5 teams competing for those spots at the upper end of the bottom half of the table.
Romeu, Hojbjerg and Ward-Prowse can be a fantastic axis from midfield

Bring it on
Have a great season everyone. Enjoy the football!

I used to be a huge fan of Romeo but i know think football has moved on. The 'tough' midfielder breaking up play has now been replaced with the 'tough' midfielder breaking up play but also with vision, with passing ability, goal scoring ability. Hojbjerg is this man and i think Romeo is miles behind. If you watch us now, we are too slow, too slow in buildup, in possession in attack .
WE need to be quicker, more decisive, more incisive .
we are nor keeping up with the Premier League.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2019 02:10:13
I agree. I think that Romeo is too slow and gets caught out of position too often. Hojbjerg is always looking for the forward pass but Romeo is happy to just lay the ball off to the side often creating problems for other players.

Agree0 Disagree0

i agree that romeu is too slow but don't you think he could be a brilliant central defender instead of central midfielder.
if he could make the grade then that would solve a lot of problems.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2019 12:34:20
Surely we have enough slow central defenders without adding another one in to the mix?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2019 17:37:52
Today was a perfect example of why we don't need the Romeu type player. We were too slow with the ball. without the ball, and our forward play was . well . not forward!
Bring on Djenepo and we were a different team, bring on Boufal and we were on fire! We must shake of this slow and predictable play, not for the modern Premier League.
Come on you Reds.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2019 02:54:37
Agree with most comments re our sluggish and inconsistant Mid 3.We have the exciting players in front of them but lack a class striker next to Redmond and Adams. However a great result and confidence booster- we’re off and running-WELL DONE! Keep On Marching.
