Southampton V Leeds United The Line Ups Ralph Springs Surprise
Tuesday, 23rd Feb 2021 17:17

Ralph Hasenhuttl has made a few tweaks to his line up after a tough game against Chelsea with the emphasis seemingly being about having a strong second half.

Ralph Hasenhuttl seems to be fed up with throwing away points in the second half and has picked a side that is all about grafting in the first half and then having options off the bench for a strong second half.

Starting XI: McCarthy, Bednarek, Salisu, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Tella, Redmond, Adams.

Subs: Forster, Ramsay, Stephens, Jankewitz, Chauke, Minamino, Djenepo, Nlundulu, Ings.

Leeds starting XI
Starting XI: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Dallas, Struijk, Klich, Roberts, Harrison, Raphinha, Bamford.

Subs: Casilla, Alioski, Costa, Hernandez, Gelhardt, Cresswell, Jenkins, Casey, Huggins.

Wait for the final score to criticise / praise, but having the likes of Miramino, Ings and Djenepo coming on fresh" in the second half could give us new impetus for a game that lasts an intensive 90 minutes. Perhaps this is Ralph's " Plan B " ?

You know what, this is ridiculous! 1 win in 13 games and 1 point in our last 8 games just takes the piss! Yeah you know it doesn’t help with having shit officials and VAR always giving the incorrect decisions when for us but always gives the correct ones against us (the pen today!) as yeah we’d of certainly gotten more points, and yeah we needed more players and such with our injury crisis which is down to a shit owner and bad luck whether I for shit pitches or injuries! But in the end 1 POINT! Out of 8 games or just 1 win in 13 games just takes the piss! I mean if it wasn’t for our amazing start we’d be in Fulhams position and the only real difference between either of our seasons currently is that we’re still in the FA cup.

For me it’s pretty simple, if we don’t get 4 points out of our next 3 games (Everton, Sheffield United and Man City, all of which are away) then we do need to look at alternatives! I mean unless we beat Everton on Monday, if we loose to Sheffield United then Ralph just has to go! As in the end this is now just ridiculous and has to change! So unless we can beat Sheffield United and really a draw against Everton too then we need to start taking things seriously!

I mean he’s set some good records, yeah, but he’s also set loads of shit ones too! Like us loosing 9-0 AGAIN! Along with being the first manager to loose 6 in a row with us! We just never seen to have a plan B and after this season we’re almost certain to loose the likes of Ings and even now maybe the likes of Prowse, Peters and Vestergaard! I mean I’ve really likes him as a manager for both his personality and tactics and has certainly been our best since Koeman, but at the same time it’s not just entertainment and personality that decides a result of a football game...

At least when Forster plays we know we keep clean sheets so we could still win the FA Cup this year. It's just a pity he can't play in more league ones. I remember his last one: a 1-0 win v Liverpool.

Do you think Forster would have saved that first one Dirk? Just the sort of goal that is his weakness too.

Not Nick's fault that this little preview article reads so painfully in retrospect. I bet Ralph would have liked Ings or Minamino to have that Tella chance.
