Southampton Dealt Big Blow For Trip To Leicester With Danny Ings Testing Positive
at 19:13:41

If he's shown no symptoms and he's only missed a few training sessions surely he should be fit to play? The last time I was roped into playing football I'd not played for about 20 years during which time I'd put on four stone and undergone a major back operation. It didn't stop me playing. Well, for 20 minutes at least. On that basis I'm sure Ingsy will be ok for a cameo off the bench on Saturday.

Vestergaard Set To Miss Fulham Trip ! But Who Will Replace Him
at 10:21:48

Why do managers these days tell the world who's injured and who's fit two days before a game? In the good old days you'd normally only find out when the teams ran out at 2.55. Surely it must give the opposition an advantage if they know a key player (like JV) is highly unlikely to play? If it wasnt for the modern media's desperate thirst to have something to report, would these things even get discussed?

On This Day In History - 1978 The RAF Police Dog Display Pitch Invasion
at 12:19:57

I remember it well. The other half time entertainment at The Dell i vaguely recall was when a member of the crowd had a race around the pitch against one of our local Team GB 400m runners (I think it was either Roger Black or Todd Bennett). As I remember, the proper athlete had to complete two laps while the rather unfit-looking fan had to do just one. From what i remember, the pro coasted his first lap thinking he would win easily, and then realised the fan was running quite fast and started to sprint. I think the fan actually won to great cheers from the crowd, but I can't be 100% sure. Anyone else remember it? Oh, and who can forget the Valley Slags singer walking towards the Leeds fans? They nearly needed the RAF dogs that night.

Saints V Tottenham Hotspur The Verdict
at 16:15:25

Where are the articles slagging off our owner and the terrible way the club's being run? Maybe if Gao actually had some money to spend on some 'leaders' then Nick wouldn't have to write an identical match report every week. You can't keep blaming the same players without eventually questioning why they are in the team.

2019/20 Season Review - The Centre Backs
at 13:22:33

Nick's had it in for Stephens ever since the League Cup final, but really went into overdrive after Hoedt fell out of favour and got farmed out. Most of us would agree that Stephens is far from perfect, but he had a great second half of the season and deserves a lot of credit, not that he will get any on this website of course. He fits in really well with our style of playing out from the back (we can only imagine what carnage would have ensued if Nick's favourite had been given as much of the ball). I just hope that the new lad won't be given such a hard time by Nick if he makes a couple of mistakes early in his Saints career.

Saints Guaranteed 12th Place ! But What If !
at 12:02:03

Nine away wins. NINE. Despite having a central defensive pairing who lack leadership, can't mark, can't organise and concede soft goals in every single match we play (apart from the eight clean sheets, obviously). How do you explain that Nick? Presumably we just got lucky nine times?

Saints At Bournemouth The Verdict
at 18:24:56

Excellent summary Nick. Good to see VAR doing its job. Without it we would have been robbed of two points by what turned out to be a fairly clear offside. The potential implications to Watford and Villa would have been immeasurably greater.

Saints Closing In On Salisu But Youth Is Not The Solution In The Centre Of Defence
at 16:44:58

This is a fascinating new development. Not only is Nick slagging off our current central defenders, he's now having a pop at one we haven't even signed yet. I reckon Nick must cry himself to sleep at night underneath his Wesley Hoedt duvet cover.

Saints At Manchester United The Verdict
at 11:37:17

Nick, you've been constantly moaning about Stephens and Bednarek all season. It dominates every single preview and match report you write (even when we get a great result, bizarrely). It is obviously something that obsesses you, although you seem to be ploughing a lone furrow most of the time. The defending throughout the Premier League at the moment is pretty poor; our two are certainly no worse than many others, most of whom cost tens of millions more. Why not just enjoy the moment, accept the odd mistake from our defenders, appreciate them when they play well, acknowledge the skill of the opposition when they score a great goal against us. Honestly, you'll feel much better for it.

Saints At Everton The Verdict
at 21:23:20

Nick has banged on about the central defenders for so long now maybe it's time he redirected his disappointment at the manager who picks them every week, or Southampton FC who, for three and a half years (as he repeatedly tells us), have mysteriously failed to go out and find anything better. Nick obviously knows better than the club. I've almost reached the point now where I wish Saints would get Hoedt back off loan for a few matches just so Nick can see how lucky we are to have Bednarek and Stephens.

How has Nick coped over the past few months without Bednarek and Stephens to take his frustration out on? Looking at the table, if you take away the Leicester fiasco (difficult I know), our GD isn't actually that bad.

Premier League Clubs Want Relegation Scrapped
at 10:03:33

I don't blame the clubs at all. Getting relegated is bad enough, but getting relegated when the rules have changed three quarters of the way through the season will be very hard to take. The matches in Germany so far have shown that the lack of crowds has almost certainly had an effect on results.

Dont Blame Southampton FC For Project Restart !
at 11:01:45

Of course a football forum editor wants football to return. Not many others seem that bothered. If it wasn't for the fact that Saints could conceivably go bust without the final lot of TV money, and the fact that so many people rely on football clubs for their employment, it would be quite amusing to see an industry that is so dripping in money and greed suddenly implode. This crisis should act as a dire warning to football, but it almost certainly won't.

Premier League In Advanced Talks To Resume Football
at 11:51:59

It has nothing to do with public safety, or player safety for that matter, or who wins the league or gets relegated, it's purely down to the Premier League being desperate to finish the season so the broadcasters can't withhold their money. I've always wondered what would happen if the money dried up and we may be about to find out.

How come certain other players never get named and shamed when they have shockers? PEH passed the ball to the opposition so many times yesterday I wouldn't have been surprised if WH had given him their MoM award. Criticise those you don't like by all means Nick, but don't leave out those who equally contribute to a poor team performance.

Leicester City Want Vestergaard

Strangely enough, this has happened before and it involved Saints. Dave McLaren let in nine against Saints in the Sixties and we signed him a year later. Don't think it ended that well as he only played 20 or so games for us.
