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 […]

Leicester Home Lost 1 – 2

Vestergaard and Elyounoussi recovered from illness and injury to face Leicester, giving Elyounoussi a first start, but there were two other changes and I can’t help but think a more settled approach would help the side. As it was there wasn’t even a place on the bench for Gabbiadini and Yoshida (the day after his […]

Everton Away Lost 2 – 1

Southampton announced early on that Elyounoussi was unlikely to feature at Everton and they decided not to start with Armstrong, either as a result of his knock in the opening game or lack of Premier League experience.

Burnley Home Drew 0 – 0

Another summer of change at Southampton, in common with just about every other club except Tottenham. This year the manager stayed the same, so we assume that the new acquisitions met with Mr. Hughes’ approval, even if a big striker didn’t seem to be on the shopping list: Danny Ings rather than Daniel Sturridge. There […]

LSCC Cricket Tour of Somerset 2018 – part 1

After a break of one year due to our Finland tour in 2017, the London Saints returned to familiar pastures this year, or did we? (more later) as a new opponent and the hot weather, which resulted in Witham Friary’s ground being unplayable, meant we played on two new grounds on our 2018 tour. Firstly […]
