Southampton At Sheffield United The Verdict
by highfield49 at 17:47:20

I've only seen the brief highlights on the official site, so I certainly can't claim to be in a position to offer much in the way of constructive feedback, but clearly Forster deserves huge credit for his penalty saves. We also seem to have unexpected resources to take penalties in the future and it was good to see the confident strikes hit the net. Broja maybe thinks that he is on the same level as Livramento but will benefit from understanding that he isn't and would do well to realise he has a lot to learn. Hopefully RH will get his attitude sorted, because he isn't good enough to be picked before Adams or Armstrong on recent performances. Lyanco is going to need to deal with the hard knocks of English football and I hope last evening's fright night hasn't damaged his confidence too much. Hopefully, our new goal scoring hero, Salisu and Bednarek can keep injury free and maintain form whist Stephens recovers fitness but let's not forget that McBurnie has made life difficult for a lot of defenders and Lyanco shouldn't be written off by supporters on the basis of one match! As has been said, Sheffield were unlikely to roll over without a fight and we're still in the mix. Fingers crossed that we can find the goal scoring touch against Wolves and get three points.

As I said in previous comments I saw Lyanco making one of his very few appearances in Italy against Milan and he looked very poor even then. Saints have their work cut out there . As others have said we now know why we were able to secure Broja for the season. Bags of ability but playing him as a lone striker was ridiculous. Yes it was nice to see two new goalscorers but I still get the strong feeling that in the much more competitive Premier Lerague, its going to be SCORING goals that proves to be our Achiles heel.

(Having watched the You Tube highlights) it's clear that Sheffield weren't going to lie down and surrender. Despite their relegation performances last season, they weren't the worst side in the Prem. and played a lot of good football - without getting lucky results.

Poor Lyanco had a nightmare debut, and I'm sure he will improve - given time.
Oli Mc Burnie is a real handful who wouldn't be out of place in the Prem. today and gave our defence a hard time, and (the Solent commentary) highlighted several bad fouls on Tella in particular, that went unpunished by the ref. who let a lot go during the game.

Few outstanding performances, and a few who really ought to have done a lot better, but perhaps the best on the night was Fraser Forster's penalty save in the shoot-out.
At least we are in the draw for the next round, hopefully at home this time, and a chance to get further in the competition.

For a game that was poorly attended by the home supporters I was surprised to see how many Saints supporters there were - though it is hard to really tell the numbers stood amongst others but there seemed a reasonably good turn out. The ticket price may have helped and to be honest, we should be going for these competitions because we sure as hell not going to be winning the league any time soon.

On the game itself. One of mixed emotions and feelings and overall Nick's assessment seems a fair one. Some good performances and some not so good ones. An entertaining game for various reasons. Goal scoring really is an issue with us. Sheff Utd had 3 chances of note and took 2. I am not sure how many we had but we are just not clinical enough and at the moment we just don't seem to have someone up front experienced or not, that is going to make the opposition pay.

Alot has been said about Lyanco. I think it is unfair to judge him on one performance. He definitely had an uncomfortable evening but it is hard to just come in and get it right first time. Some do, but many don't. If Stephens is out for a while and should we get another injury in that area we could be in trouble though. Those mis-hitting strikers are going to need to up their game.

My main disappointment last night was Broja. He really did not match his earlier promise but again, may be he just had an off night/game. But, he is still new and learning whereas Redmond - if he thinks a cameo at Newcastle where he provided 2 influential assists are good enough then in my view he is mistaken. Personally, I would transfer list Redmond at the end of the season (if such a thing exists). He has had long enough at our club to become the player that other managers and media seem to think he is, but he consistently fails to deliver. Djenepro - as said before - 10/10 out for endeavour about 2/10 for composure. If he could get the 2nd part right he would be a great player. I Keep hoping it will happen. Diallo played well and Tella didn't have a great start but got stronger as the game progressed.

Penalties (Broja aside) were good and of course Fraser Forster played his part in getting us through

An enjoyable evening and pleased we are through. Really need that win on Sunday. It is not a must win but it would make such a difference if we do.

Good article, Nick. Congrats to the players, Ralph and the staff and us supporters, especially those who took the travel to Bramall Lane.
Great that Salisu and Diallo scored their first goals!
Let's hope for a good draw in the next round. I do love the League Cup competition.

Eddie Howe Holding Out For Southampton Job But Ralph Is Still The Man !
by KriSaint at 14:09:28

And so we did! YEEEEEEEEEEEES, and had it not been for Jon f*cking Moss' scandalous overturning of a stone wall penalty decision + red card against Man. Etihad, we would have been 1-0 up against 10 men with 40 minutes left to play - injury time included.

I suspect if we had played this game last season we would have contrived a way to lose it. Having transferred the players who didn’t want to play for us the team spirit has improved this time around.

Given that Nick’s favourite Jack Stephens is reportedly unavailable for three months, I hope that Lyanco improves or we could be in trouble if our other central defenders are injured or suspended.

As for Redmond. Exactly how many more opportunities is he to be given before Ralph realises that Nathan has good ball control and pace but completely lacks a footballing brain?

Lyanco looked clearly not ready for the PL but that could be expected; he has always been described as "for the future".
Broja was poor; RH had strong words about him; rightly so.
Nathan Redmond! What can one say apart from the fact that, yet again, he contributed nothing.
Moussa? Remember the film "Bambi "? and the seen on the frozen pond? But you got to love him; he tries so hard. When it all goes right (soon?) look out PL.
The rest played good stuff and with AdamA and/or Che on from the start we could have got through with finger nails in tact.
Ibrahim Diallo coming on great, just a bit quicker in decision-making and he's the real deal.
We live on and continue to learn. 3points Sunday please.

It's a good point. Armstrong and Adams could do with a goal or two that's for sure.
