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

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?!

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!

Following Pompey’s most recent result I’m just wodering whether Kenny. Jackett May have conducted his Players’ performance post match by Sending them All To Coventry.! Keep On Marching.

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.

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.

24 Aug 2019 11:40:36
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.

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

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.

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.

My team for Liverpool:




We're going to get hammered but I like to fight fire with fire.

I think Cedric could feature. We're going to be pinned down the wings so need a more defensive minded. Think valery is great and one of my favourite players atm. Agree it'll be a 442 and just hope we can break fast and take our chances. The worry is gping behind to an early goal could see the heads drop and then it's pick a score line. i'm hopeful of a good performance and if i get that. Then I'm happy 😬.

17 Aug 2019 09:03:39
I'm hoping the hass can get boufal under his wing like redderz and if he knuckles down we could have a real player on our hands.

18 Aug 2019 05:40:56
After watching the entire 90 mins yesterday (admittedly on sky as we have a young child and can't afford to go much these days) have to say I was very impressed with the lads. Just needed to be that touch sharper on our finishing and the very least we could've got a draw. I'm sure the goals will come especially as the season goes on. Anyway have a good rest of the weekend first win coming next weekend at brighton. COYR.

19 Aug 2019 02:10:33
Still have every confidence in Ralph but glaring deficiencies need to be addressed quickly. Bertrand has been poor and needs to be replaced by Vokins/ Cedric (maybe until Jan) . We trust Danso will prove ok alongside Bednarek with Yoshi on the bench until another quality cb/ leader can be bought in Jan. jwp/ peg/ Rom ok for time being. Dnepo/ Redmond/ Boufal/ Armstrong/ Adams selected from a jigsaw to combat opposition. Ings on the bench. Lookslike with our requirements our next allocation of Premiership monies will have already been spent? Keep On Marching.

21 Aug 2019 05:49:58
With recent comments regarding. Saints penalty takers I am surprrised Che Adams has not been suggested. As Saints sharpest striker it would be both motivating and encouraging for him to achieve the maximum tally of goals scored in a season. Keep ON MARCHING.

14 Aug 2019 22:54:57
Well not to be pessimistic but judging by our performance against burnley and liverpool's performance aganist Norwich and Chelsea I'd be fine with conceding anything less than 5 this weekend.
