Spurs Away Lost 2 – 1

It may all change with the likelihood of an April fixture pile-up, but the rotation policy is definitely on hold in the intermittent March schedule as Saints were unchanged for the fourth successive game, against Tottenham. That means no place for Cáceres, and there are good reasons for that, not least in terms of player […]

Watford Away Won 4 – 3

Southampton were unchanged between Wembley and Watford which suggests that the manager’s rotation policy was just his way of coping with two games a week rather than anything dogmatic. The game at Vicarage Road didn’t start very well, though, with the defence finding it difficult to deal with successive long throws by Niang before Deeney […]

EFL Cup Final Wembley V Manchester United Lost 3 – 2

Cup Final day (EFL version anyway) and Claude Puel led out a Southampton team against top flight opposition at Wembley for the first time since… well, since Ian Branfoot did actually, so best gloss over that for the moment. Claude also had a selection dilemma caused by the acquisition of experienced international defender Martin Cáceres, […]

Sunderland Away won 4 – 0

The very first minute of the game at Sunderland looked to have encompassed Southampton’s attitude this season: they moved the ball purposely to the edge of the penalty area but failed to get in a shot (not even a cross) before retreating back downfield, ending with a hack away by Forster and both possession and […]

West Ham Home Lost 1 – 3

There was an increasing fear that a slump is becoming a crisis even before the latest disappointment – defeat at home to West Ham, Jose Fonte and all. It did begin so well, though, with big money signing Gabbiadini converting after breaking the offside trap in the 12th minute – and what a good finish […]

Swansea Away Lost 1 – 2

Good news in the transfer deadline shake-down – we’ve signed a goalkeeper! Before the game at Swansea was out, we’d also confirmed the acquisition of an international striker, but obviously far too late for him to be involved in this latest failure to secure any points from what looked to be a very winnable game. […]

Arsenal Home FA Cup 4th Round Lost 5 – 0

It may have been the 4th round of the FA Cup but the line-ups chosen by Southampton and Arsenal would have been more appropriate to the Checkatrade Trophy, had Arsenal bothered to enter it. I think the players are more robust than manager Puel believes, but this time I have more sympathy with his rotation […]

Liverpool Away EFL Cup 2nd Leg Won 1 – 0

The chances of succeeding in the League Cup semi final at Liverpool, whether in 90 minutes, 120 minutes or even after penalties, seemed to depend on whether Van Dijk was fit enough to play – and he wasn’t. There was no sign of the fog we’d seen in the south of England, so a postponement […]
