Bournemouth Away Won 0 – 1

Caleta-Car for the injured Bella-Kotchap was the only starting change at Bournemouth in a game put back 23 and a half hours, thus enabling locally based visiting fans to get home by public transport after comfortably the nearest thing to the real ‘derby.’ Stuff you, Amazon. Actually Amazon would have been pleased to have missed an affair […]

West Ham Home Drew 1 – 1

A turbulent week at Southampton with a backroom staffer departing in circumstances that looked odd, but no special changes on the pitch, with the manager’s faith continuing in his two Championship strikers, Adams and Adam Armstrong, in the line-up to face West Ham. There’s more fluidity in the midfield selections where the importance of the […]

Manchester City Away Lost 4 – 0

We always like to travel hopefully, don’t we? But there are some fixtures where any sort of positive result just doesn’t seem possible, and the best thing to do is enjoy the day for what it is… or just don’t go. Those who travelled to Manchester City had obviously ruled out the latter option, but […]

Everton Home Lost 1 – 2

Ralph’s formation wasn’t clear from the line-up to face Everton at St. Mary’s with a debut for  Ćaleta-Car (looking at him, there was no doubt where he was going to play), starting debuts for Lariso and Maitland-Niles and a second starting berth for Mara. It’s easy to suggest that the players weren’t sure of their […]

Crystal Palace Women Away Won 1 – 2

A great performance from Saints with a brace of goals from Lexi Lloyd-Smith scored early in the first and second half. Good to know the view at Palace is just as bad for home fans as away Lumsden, drove along the backline before cutting back for an onrushing Lexi Lloyd-Smith to break the deadlock, slamming […]

Aston Villa Away Lost 1 – 0

An autumnal evening at Villa Park for Saints fans to rediscover the logistical challenges of Friday night football but on the pitch there was a familiar feel to the Southampton line-up although Aribo was relegated to the bench, confirming my view that I hold the player in higher regard than the coach who continued in […]

Wolverhampton Away Lost 1 – 0

Based on pre-season form, I’d have said Diallo was the most likely player to depart St. Mary’s, but with Romeu no longer fitting our Moneyball age profile and the gifted Lavia facing a lengthy lay-off, he’s a likely starter for a few weeks. Diallo was in the team that beat Chelsea anyway, so that left […]

Chelsea Home Won 2 – 1

Perraud was fit enough to start against Chelsea so he came in for Djnepo, immediately giving the team a more defensive feel which was increased by the inclusion of Diallo in midfield; perhaps memories of last year’s 0-6 thrashing were influencing selection. Early indications were that the visitors were more than coping with it as […]
