Southampton Line Up V Shrewsbury Town
Tuesday, 19th Jan 2021 19:25

Find out what sort of team Ralph Hasenhuttl has selected to take on Shrewsbury Town in the 3rd round of the FA Cup at St Mary'e here.

Saints have put out a mixed team to take on the Shrews:

Starting XI: Forster, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Watts, Chauke, Nlundulu, Long.

Subs: Lewis, Tchaptchet, Walker-Peters, Bertrand, Finnigan, Jannkewitz, Armstrong, Ferry, Adams.

A team with a strong spine but also some youngsters, notably debutant's Caleb Watts and Kegaogelo Chauke, both unfamiliar names to Saints fans but who will be hoping tonight will be the first step to long career's at St Mary's.

Strangely though a strong bench that has the likes of KWP, Ryan Bertrand and Stuart Armstrong as well as the get out of jail free card in Che Adams, has no room for Theo Walcott, whether that is just to give him a rest or because of injury is unclear.

..the traditional "..right balance of youth and experience. "
Forster kept a clean sheet against Liverpool, so we keep Jack and Jan in the centre, with Valery and Vokins already having had game time.
Diallo and Prowsie to help Watts and Chauke control the midfield.
Shane Long as "the senior professional " looking to help N'Lundulu gets his first goal.

The regulars on the bench need a rest with the fixture list piling up and we might even see Ferry and Jankewitz getting their well-earned debuts.
Now all we have to do is get a win.

It's great to see Kegs Chauke in the first team. He is a really exciting player.

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved the greatest cup giant-killing ever!

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
