Bournemouth Away Drew 0 – 0

Fine weather for a first ever Premier League visit to Bournemouth on a Saturday afternoon, but what went on on the pitch singularly failed to match up to the occasion. The home side had a great opportunity in the very first minute when no-one in the Saints defence seemedprepared to halt Smith’s run from deep, but not […]

Darts Away Man City Lost 6 – 5

Let’s start with the good news, we had a full team and even a reserve last night and each of our players won at least two games. Now the bad news, although all our players won at least two games for most that was just the two team games, unfortunately between us we only won […]

Chelsea Home Lost 0 – 3

It was at home to Chelsea last season that Mark Hughes introduced his three centre back defence and after trying it again in the midweek cup tie, Chelsea were the first to face something similar in the League this time round as well. As a result the side conceded possession very readily but Maurizio Sarri’s […]

Carabao Cup 3rd Round Everton Away Full Time 1 – 1 , Won 3 – 4 on Penalties

Mark Hughes announced that he treated the EFL Cup with respect, which doesn’t quite explain the wholesale team changes made at Brighton. For Everton, though, only McCarthy, Bertrand and the two centre backs were notable absentees, with Soares, Lemina and Højbjerg somewhat surprise inclusions, supported by Soares and Targett in wide positions in front of […]

Wolverhampton Wanders Away Lost 2 – 0

Saints reverted to their team-we-can-beat formation at Wolverhampton but Austin lined up alongside Ings as Long was injured. The home team, meanwhile, are in quite a good place and managed to be unchanged for the seventh successive game, something that says a lot about their form. Wolves, though, were beatable and although it’s true that […]

Liverpool Away Lost 3 – 0

Ings is still owned by Liverpool so was ineligible for the trip to Anfield, but it was always likely that Mr. Hughes would change his preferred team anyway by including Romeu to block out the Reds’ midfield – in fact it was double glazing as Targett also started. Keeping the ball out of the net […]

Brighton Home Drew 2 – 2

With Long and Ings recovering from knocks, Saints were unchanged as they returned from the international break to face Brighton in TV’s Monday night game. I see nothing wrong in changing the line-up to face the league’s galacticos, but a settled side is best when the fixture list pits you against the sort of teams […]

Crystal Palace Away won 0 – 2

The Southampton line-up at Crystal Palace was unchanged from the last league game, or, to put it another way, there were ten changes from the Carabao Cup team. We now know the manager’s preferred line-up, and after an excellent result, it would be a surprise if they didn’t appear next time out as well. It […]

Brighton Away Carabao Cup Round 2 Won 0 – 1

The opening rounds of the League Cup, EFL Cup, Carabao Cup or whatever you want to call it have long been a farce, and Brighton and Southampton’s selections for round two’s only all Premier League tie did nothing to make them more serious: only Elyounoussi and Albion’s Bissouma started in both the cup game and […]
