Southampton 1 v 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Barclays Premier League

Southampton V Wolves Line Up's Announced
Sunday, 14th Feb 2021 11:03

The team news is out from St Mary's for Saints second clash of the week with Wolverhampton Wanderers, will Ralph Hasenhuttl have any shocks in his starting line up, find out the team news here.

Ralph has reverted to the old guard for the visit of Wolves to St Mary's meaning there is no place for Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy retains his place and Salisu drops to the bench with Jannik Vestergaard back in the starting XI, however Tukami Minamino returns to the side after being cup tied

Starting XI: McCarthy (GK); Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Romeu, Ward-Prowse , Armstrong, Minamino; Redmond, Ings.

Subs: Forster, Salisu, Stephens, Chauke, Watts, Djenepo, Tella, Nlundulu, Adams.

However the bench looks a lot stronger and Ralph definitely has options all over the pitch., something that he didn't have a few weeks ago.

Big question is who will partner Danny Ings up front, will it be Nathan Redmond as was the case at Molyneux on Thursday, with Minamino playing on the left wing, or will those positions be reversed with the Liverpool loanee playing up top.

The Wolves side sees a lot of changes from their starting XI in the Cup game and they will be a different proposition from the midweek clash.

Let's hope Redmond actually does something useful today, bit tired of the lack of end product and he still gets in the team ahead of Adams, Tella and Djenepo. His energy is good but how many times does he lose the ball? At Wolves it seemed like every time he got the ball yet Tella created two things in 5 minutes. I hope Redmond does well today but Im struggling to see his worth these days. Very disappointed..

Certainly a very strong starting lineup today! Although I do wonder why Che Adams has been on the bench recently? I mean I know he hasn’t been amazing up front recently and may be a decent sub option, but I don’t really see how Redmond being up front is much/any better!? Still other than that I don’t think we could have a better starting lineup, with or without our current injuries! Let’s hope we can turn it around today!

Sad to see Che Adams is not starting as he has had the ball in the net a couple of times lately only to be ruled out. He is much better than Redmond. Dont know why Fraser Forster has been dropped after 4 clean sheets either. Need a win today to keep away from the lower teams.

Forster should be in imo. Redmond?? Get rid.

Ok fans really need to start doing something about VAR as it’s not only ruining the game by causing us lot to have to wait to celebrate a goal, but is also causing more controversy than it is solving as in the end it’s just a lottery for which way a decision goes! With certain teams (aka Man U and such) always having more tickets that the other clubs!

I mean but with us we just don’t have a bid enough squad and depending on how long Walker-Peters is out for will only show that point even more as unless we win the FA cup Ings is almost certainly going to leave us during the summer transfer market and this is mainly down to our rubbish owner!

But at the same time I do have to ask the question of when you loose 6 back to back games for the first time in your clubs history and loose 9-0 again with practically a year, there does need to be questions asked of the manager as we’ve got Chelsea next which we’re not going to get anything out of and then Leeds which if we loose will just be ridiculous! I mean as much as I love Ralph as a manager and wouldn’t mind having one for longer than a year or so, in the end you do need to start looking at the facts! I mean I said before the game that we practically had our best 11 out with or without our injuries and yet we still loose.

Sorry but honestly I’m getting to a point where I’m just fed up of football and don’t feel like watching even saints anymore seeing that we’ve got a rubbish owner, we can never seem to keep the form and can never keep our best players! But now the FA are contributing to that too by keeping VAR and ruining any match day experience for us fans! I just can’t take it any more...

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.
