Newcastle Home Lost 0 – 1

Southampton began brightly against Newcastle, being all over their opponents like a rash (or is that a virus?) in the first couple of minutes, but thereafter they never really recovered from a ninth minute scare when they had to be rescued by an amazing triple save from McCarthy to keep out Gayle and Almirón (twice). Saints had […]

West Ham Away Lost 3 – 1

  Djenepo was on compassionate leave and missed the trip to West Ham, leaving Boufal wide on the left and Obafemi leading the attack alongside Long, with Ings on the bench – only those close to the team know whether this was a wise safeguard of a valuable asset or unnecessary caution. Despite Walker-Peters being […]

Great Win on Monday 24th Feb 8-3 – against Exeter City

Losing the opening team game we won two out of the three doubles. Fearing the worst with the singles we amazingly hit five out of six. And then we won the final team game. Our finishing was good for once, only one game going to double one!!! Matt should be mentioned for two good finishes. […]

Aston Villa Home Won 2 – 0

We now know that Bednarek’s absence against Burnley was down to footballing reasons rather than injury. It’s hard to imagine circumstances where Vestergaard would be the better option, and in any case, why were we selecting our team to cope with Burnley’s players? Get a grip, Ralph! The manager had problems for Aston Villa’s visit […]

Burnley Home Lost 1 – 2

No Redmond to face Burnley, and Bednarek could only make the bench – maybe a result of his unexpected premature return at Spurs. Walker-Peters, though, was available for his Southampton debut and he played a small part in the third minute goal that was gifted to the visitors: the new W-P made sure he got […]

Tottenham Hotspur Away FA Cup 4th Round Replay Lost 3 – 2

And so to Tottenham for what could prove to be our last ever F.A. Cup replay – certainly if the manager gets his way. Ralph went with his usual ploy for this competition with Gunn in goal and Lewis on the bench, but there was no place in the squad for Djenepo due to illness – hopefully not […]

Liverpool Away Lost 4 – 0

Soares was never going to feature at Liverpool due to injury, but the arrival of his replacement, Walker-Peters, meant Ralph had a new option at full back – one that he wisely declined, although taking on the World Champions with our best midfielder now in defence wasn’t ideal, especially with injury also ruling out the […]

Tottenham Hotspur Home FA Cup 4th Round Drew 1 – 1

Another outing for Gunn in goal was the only concession to prevailing attitudes to the FA Cup, Ings being restored, but Southampton also had to face Spurs without injured Long and Soares so Obafemi and Danso deputised – tough on Danso who seems to be the fifth choice centre back but only gets game time in […]

Crystal Palace Away Won 0 – 2

Bednarek picked up an injury against Wolves so Vestergaard was chosen to face Crystal Palace in the first defensive change to the Premier League team for some time, while Ralph’s rotation ‘threat’ meant that Ings sat out most of the game on the bench. Soares went down under a heavy challenge and although he made it back […]
