This Week It's Still All About Pompey Not Bournemouth
by saintjf at 19:41:05

Quite right Steve. A very strange preview. This game does matter as it is 3 points.

Let's hope the players haven't got the same viewpoint tonight. Personally I'd prefer 3 points.

Saints V Bournemouth The Preview

While I am not necessarily against replacing Yoshida with Danso, Yoshida remains the second fastest player in the squad after Long so we would not necessarily be gaining pace by doing so.

Hasenhutl Hints At Rift With Ryan Bertrand
by redandwhitedee at 16:36:17

The lack of any left-footed player in the squad each week is very poor squad planning by the club. Hoedt, Bertrand, and untested Vokins... That’s it... even Danso is right-footed.

Hasenhutl Hints At Rift With Ryan Bertrand
by underweststand at 16:05:41

I'm inclined to go along with NewburySaint on this one.

Along with Yoshida.... Bertand is one of the most experienced - and oldest in the squad.
I'm glad we've still got them both, but Ralph has to justify the outlay on his new signings and unless they get game time, they will start to stagnate (as did Armstrong and Elyounoussi last season).

I'm pleased that the new guys have stood out in their brief outings, but they have to hit the ground running in order to prove themselves.

Bertrand (and Yoshida and Long) may play a bit less this season, but their combined efforts will prove valuable later in thr season in the case of injury or form-loss with the newcomers. .
Most players around 30+ know that their days of being first choice may have passed - if not gone forever. Bertrand will come again - but finding the right level of "youth and experience" is a balancing act for all managers - especially in the Prem.

I’d stick Danso in midfield, from what iv seen he likes to run at people ...I thought I read DJenepo is injured?

They are a weird bunch. Twitter is alive with them, yet tell them you don't really care and they take that as a sign that we really do !?
I see them as another PL team who we need to beat. They are the same as Sheffield United, Watford or whoever. Of course I want us to beat them, but either way the result won't live long in the memory.

If fit he must play. We miss him bombing down the left. Djnepo is no wing back and I personally think he's wasted there. Neither is Danso. Cedric is an option with Valery on the right. I can't stand players playing out of position. Leaves us exposed.

Sorry Nick, but i don't read into any of RH's above comments that suggests there's a rift there-maybe you've heard something else elsewhere but the above doesn't seem to suggest a rift in my opinion.

I thought Danso was suspended for Sheffield?

One thing’s for sure. It’s no contest if it’s a choice between Bertrand and Cedric at left-back.

Saints Legend Chris Nicholl Struck By Dementia
by underweststand at 19:38:54

I thought him to be outstanding as a CB and Captain during his playing days .
Tough, no nonsense player who always gave 100%.

He was successor to Lawrie Mac, and overall gave a good showing as a manager . although he did ruffle a few feathers along the way. I agree with Cotswold Saint about his squads in the later years, but was dumped by the Board because Saints ONLY finished 8th that season...!

When you consider who followed him as Manager... it would have been better to have kept him instead.
Sad to hear about his medical problems, but there are many fans who will remember him with pride - even if he might not recall everything himself.

Chris was the manager in charge when I went to my first game, all those years ago. Was saddened to hear of his plight. As Highfield said it'd be nice for the club to chip in for a manager that was with us for 6 years. That's virtually unheard of these days!

Ay Ay Ay Moussa ! A Song For Djenepo !
by highfield49 at 10:22:23

Brings to mind the "mighty Kenyan" song when Victor Wanyama was in his prime. I can't remember if that was a spontaneous adaption or nicked from Celtic fans. Anyone recall the first time it was sung at St Mary's because it certainly captured a rapid following from supporters. I certainly agree Nick that it's time to improve the song list but it seems as though it's really hard to find the elusive combination of tune and words together.

Sad news and I know that all of us who supported Saints during Chris's years at Saints will wish him well. Thankfully there are people like WISA who are the lifeblood of the game and care for their past heroes as did Saints supporters when Ron Davies needed help a few years ago. Whilst it's good to hear that SFC are making a donation towards the fundraising event I can't help but think that with the vast sums of money sloshing around the game now a club announcement that they were funding Chris's future care would be welcomed by us all.

His 1989-90 squad still best attacking team I've ever seen in fifty years as a Saints fan.

Ay Ay Ay Moussa ! A Song For Djenepo !
by powpow at 18:27:22

Thanks for highlighting this subject, we certainly don’t lack passion for our team, but definitely lack imagination compared to other clubs when it comes to singing songs.
I think this could work quite well, rewording the chorus of Spandau Ballet’s ‘Gold’;

“DJE-NE-PO,
PO,
ALWAYS SCORING GOOD GO-ALS
HE’S GOT SOME POWER YOU KNOW,
HE’S JUST UN-STOP-PABLE,
ALWAYS BE-LIEVE INNN,
DJE-NE-PO,
PO”

(Repeat)

Me and my mates tried, in the 80's, to get a new song going based on King - Alone without you. Goes na na, na na na, na na, na na, na na na... Ooh (change it to Mou)
As you can imagine everyone looked at us like we were nutjobs. Didn't have the Heart to try it again.

Ralph Hails Defensive Improvement ! But Is He Right To ?

For SU disallowed goal I saw Yoshdi telling Hoberg to watch the back but he choose to ignore it leaving them open to finish. So there is some communication going on.
