Newcastle United 3 v 2 Southampton
Barclays Premier League

Southampton At Newcastle Team News
Saturday, 6th Feb 2021 14:02

Who is fit to play this afternoon ? Who is not quite ready ? and who is still out, Ralph's Team news will give us the answer, read on to find out the answers to all those questions here.

Great news as Jannik Vestergaard has been names in the Saints team at Newcastle.

From the look of the starting line up Jack Stephens will move to right back to accomodate the return of Vestergard with Oriol Romeu also returning to partner James Ward Prowse in the centre of midfield.

There is also a debut in the starting line up for Takumi Minamino.

All in all this is perhaps the strongest side that Saints have put out for some weeks in terms of the starting line up, although the bench is still a little bit sparse with Djenepo the only real player with experience, the big surprise there though is Mohammed Salisu who returns to the squad and could perhaps make his debut at some point.

Starting XI: McCarthy, Stephens, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond, Minamino, Adams, Ings.

Subs: Forster, Salisu, Ramsay, Finnigan, Chauke, Watts, Djenepo, Tella, Nlundulu.


Starting XI: Darlow, Manquillo, Schar, Hayden, Lewis, Hendrick, Shelvey, Willock, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin.

Subs: Dubravka, Krafth, Anderson, Dummett, Ritchie, Fraser, Joelinton, Carroll, Gayle.

Stephens and Redmond on right. Guess where NUFC goals coming from! And not many for SFC

We simply lost that game down to some poor mistakes off of Bednerak and MacCarthy! I mean also what the hell is up with Ings and Adams!? Neither of them have scored an open play since we played SHEFFIELD UNITED! Which has now been 10 games! I mean what’s happened to this team as other than Walker-Peters we probably had our best starting lineup today and couldn’t even score a single goal against a Newcastle team that had 10 players for like 25 minutes and then 9 for another 25 minutes!

Such a poor a disappointing result! There’s just no excuses this time!

KriSaint added 23:05 - Feb 6
I understand your frustration, but forget the VAR cirkus for a second and Ings actually scored a legitimate goal vs Villa and Adams ditto vs Man. U.

ElijahK added 23:37 - Feb 6
Ok KriSaint but even then 1 gol each in 10 games certainly is not a PL standard

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.
