Broja needs to learn to start shooting with his left foot !!

Last night and on previous occasions, instead of shooting, he turned back around and tried to get it on his right foot, but got crowded out.

The same can be said for Adams. He has got slightly better this season, but part of his 'issues' were taking too many touches to compose himself, or taking too many touches to get it onto his right foot - whereas Ings would hit it first time, left or right.

FF has played for us this season - in the League Cup at Chelsea.

Perhaps watch that game and look at the saves he makes - with hands, body and feet - including a penalty save too.

Once watched, you will then know that he would have saved at least one of the goals last night (if not both), the VvD goal atAnfield and both against Norwich.

As has been stated on here already, neither are our answer and hopefully the club will address this situation in January - otherwise the points we drop due to keeper errors will be into the twenties, come the end of the season.

Kick Off Time Tomorrow
at 15:55 30 Nov 2021

The earlier KO time may well influence a lot more people to use the train, as opposed to driving in. The last train back to Wichester, Basingstoke and connections to London and beyond, leaves Central at 10pm.

This train was not an option for the Villa game, as it kicked off at 8pm !!

So, (thanks to Nick) armed with their new Half Price Network cards (still available til 17th Dec) I expect many more fans to let the train take the strain tomorrow !! :-)

Romeu should be taking a long hard look at himself, before being pissed off at RH. As a senior player who has Captained the side, he should be setting an example. He failed to even attempt to cut out the cross that gave Norwich the equaliser and his performance at Anfield was woeful, culminating in his mistake to allow VVD to score (which AM should have saved with his feet, instead of diving over the ball).

Put his form together with that of JWP and we have one of the weakest central midfield pairings in the league. JWP has already had the rest you said he needs - courtesy of his red card and 3 match ban v Chelsea, so no excuses for his poor form. He should only play if he can do a job on Maddison like he does on Zaha !!

RH Team - Absolutely no clue !!

Hopefully we will have pace at the back to cover Vardy and Barnes and hopefully the likes of Stu Armstrong and dare I say even Djenepo and Redmond will be back to feature for us - so that Long and Walcott don't need to make the bench !!

Shilts only managed 49 appearances for England whilst at Saints !!

This fact still haunts my cousin to this day. He had a (large) bet with his brother, that Shilts had 50 or more caps !!

Anyone at that Coventry away game, before the GrobGate scandal broke ?
I said to my mates at the time that he should have saved an early Cov goal that was lobbed over him.
Fortunately for Us, Magilton, Le Tiss, Dowie and Eklund did the business and we barely gave Cov another touch and won it 3-1.
During the scandal, there was an alleged video of Grob after that game that the prosecutors were using and he was apparently saying that he virtually threw it into his own net !!

Provided the game is safely won, he may get a 5-10 min cameo against us tomorrow.

Scored good goals for us away to Newcastle and home to Chelsea, but never really kicked on after showing that early potential. Not sure if that was down to the player himself or the role he was told to play, but he was often poor for us and understandably dropped to the bench on many occasions.

Was expecting him to be well up for his 30 minute cameo last night, but alas no.

He is not featuring as much as I had expected, but I suppose if he is not delivering, he doesn't get picked - and that is at a team that is currently ravaged by injuries !!

Perhaps he will be a late developer, or has already passed his best !!

Hasenhuttl Has Big Goalkeeping Decision To Make For Liverpool Game
at 12:29 24 Nov 2021

......and Romeu should have done so much more to try and cut out the cross for the first goal. That is basic stuff you are taught as a kid.

Anyway, despite being at fault for both goals, AM will be in goal again on Saturday and barring any injuries or suspensions, FF will not feature for Saints again until the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Even then we may not want to cup tie him, in case there is a potential move or swap that involves him in January, !!

Newcastle Transfer Strategy In January
at 12:25 10 Nov 2021

I'm a little surprised Howe took the job, but at least he managed to get a 2.5 year deal out of them - good or bad, I guess they will pay him off regardless when they feel the time is right.

The calibre of players they would like to sign, don't want to go there for a relegation scrap, or possibly don't want to play for a manager such as Howe. So unless they pay really big wages (upsetting the current players), they have to go for older journeymen with Prem experience.

........However I did read that Coutinho at Barcelona has basically dropped tools and is doing the bare minimum at training - as he has been linked with a move to Newcastle in January.

Perhaps they want a couple of our under-performing fringe players ?

I see they've been handed an easy home tie against 4th tier opposition in the 2nd round.

If they can win that, then hopefully we can draw them in the 3rd round.

He also (allegedly) had issues with his time keeping and arriving late for training etc.

I guess Mane must have given Oba his watch when he departed for Liverpool !! :-)

The thing I would most like to see change at Saints...
at 12:50 9 Nov 2021

It has been a Saints trait for ages !!

Even under Koeman, we all said leave Mane on the half way line when we are defending a corner. He is quick, can give us an outlet and let's face it, he isn't going to win many headers !!

Our ten corners last night
at 18:23 8 Nov 2021

It was Will Smallbone who was taking corners in the Cup game at Chelsea - from which we created 2 excellent chances late on.

Sadly it appears that he is more accurate from a corner than he is a penalty !! :-)

Or perhaps JWP could whip it in and Che Adams could have a (very well saved) flicked header bound for the top corner ?

....but I take your point that even a free kick on the half way line is usually passed sideways or backwards and often ends up back at the keeper. Surely we could launch it into the box from half way - you never know what will happen - it could be a headed goal or drop nicely for someone !!

....or are they acting on RH's instructions ?

JWP didn't make the England camp today. He instead reported sick.

Not sure whether that was illness, injury or covid, but I guess it means he won't be involved in this week's internationals.

Don't panic !!

The fixture list compilers took pity on us and gave all of our teams a nice easy run of games over the same period. Normal losses and performances will be resumed shortly. :-)
