Saints ace Dejan Lovren hits out at 'scandal' of Japanese ref in World Cup opener

Daily Echo: Fred tumbles after barely being touched by Dejan Lovren Fred tumbles after barely being touched by Dejan Lovren

SAINTS defender Dejan Lovren has hit out at the Japanese referee who awarded an ultra-soft penalty against him last night.

Croatia were holding World Cup hosts Brazil 1-1 with 20 minutes left when match official Yuichi Nishimura ruled that Lovren had pulled down striker Fred.

Television replays showed Lovren had barely touched the player.

In addition, Croatia had a goal ruled out and a penalty shout turned down by Nishimura.

“This referee should not be at this World Cup,” said Lovren. “It wasn’t a mistake, it was a scandal.

“It's really disappointing for us because we were playing a good game against a big team.

“Two billion people I think saw that it was not a penalty. I didn't touch him.

“We're really disappointed but what can you do against 12 players?

“You can't do anything.”

The ref wasn't very good, but not worse than quite a few we had last season.

I think the hints on BBC this morning that "possibly" referees had been told by FIFA to ensure that Brazil were not eliminated in the opening rounds to quell the people protesting from becoming prominent after the fanatics lose interest if Brazil are no longer in it are closer to the truth. Lovren was penalised for a challenge that in the premiership would have earnt Fred a booking for simulation. Power to Dejan who has said nothing publicly to back up this story about a transfer request.and is probably censored from speaking about such matters till the world cup is over. It will be interesting to see the refereeing in Brazil's match against Mexico!!

Scandalous, but what do you expect from a tournament run under the aegis of one of the most corrupt organisations in the world. I'm not sure about conspiracy theories but cheating has become ingrained in the game of football and the authorities have failed to address it. Fred should be given a retrospective red card for simulation affecting the match result. That wouldn't change the result itself but just might help prevent a recurrence of such blatant cheating in the World Cup. How can you expect the players to be honest when FIFA, the governing body, is riddled with corruption?

Contrast the cesspit of soccer with the young English amateur who yesterday at the US Open pointed out that his ball had moved while he addressed it even though he hadn't touched it. It would probably not even have been picked up by a keen TV viewer so slight was the movement but in accordance with the rules he reported it and accepted the penalty shot.

And watch tomorrow's rugby match between England and the All Blacks. You'll see hard rugby but acceptance by the players of the referee's decision (on pain of a yellow card) even if the decision is arguable.

Tough luck, Dejan but my sympathy is limited on a personal level given your intention to abandon the Saints for a bigger pay packet. You are part of what's wrong with football, I'm afraid.

It wasn't a great decision but I've seen worse. The ref had a fairly reasonable game otherwise and his view of the incident may well have given him the impression that Fred was pulled down. All very well looking at all the angles but I think everyone at the time would have been thinking 'I'd like to see that again'. Refs don't get that opportunity and the players' acting doesn't help them, plus it is all very well making decisions with five angles in slow motion sat in an armchair or studio, less easy running around in the heat trying to keep your eye on everything.

In terms of the protests, I don't think they are worried about football - it's more about being able to eat/live and not get their homes bulldozed for a bunch of rich people to have four weeks of fun.

Agree with saint Compo on the Fred thing - slaughter a ref who earns very little compared when the blame must lie with the players surely. Anyone who has watched a Real/Barca game of late will know what to expect from the likes of Pepe, Alves and virtually any of these players, so this will be the tip of the iceberg. Tonight's game in particular could get feisty I think.

That's what makes Messi so special - just hope he sets the tournament alight following a quiet season. Aguero is pretty honest as well and both of them seem grounded, unlike so many.

So, now Dejan has submitted a transfer request, if he gets badly injured during the World Cup does that mean he'll be happy if we don't pay him for a while? No, thought not.

come on saintjd, these are meant to be the best refs in the world and he shouldn't need all the replays and angles in slow motion to notice how a player falls. if dejan had pulled him fred would have fallen backwards, instead his feet went from under him and he dropped like a stone, its not hard to work that out is it?
it wasn't the only big game changing decision the ref made though is it. he should have sent neymar off for the elbow, he looked straight at the Croatian player before raising his arm to hit him in the head/neck. why did the ref only book him, I thought an elbow/raised arm was a straight red. he then also disallowed the second Croatian goal for no apparent reason. three huge game changing decisions that should have gone Croatia`s way but went in favour of the home team, you cant say he had a reasonable game if by mistake he got all of those decisions wrong.
I have long said that we don't need technology in football (except goal line which I think has worked) we just need to help refs out more, how about four linesmen per game?
agree with the protests, there seems to be a strong anarchist element behind them. however brazil have spent £6.5bill to put on the world cup whilst having budget cuts of £11.5bill, all of the profit from tv rights etc go to fifa not to the local people, which is wrong in my opinion. they will benefit from the huge influx of visiting fans though. they are also unhappy at the amount of money being spent on the Olympics in two years time. I can understand their anger but not their actions.
there is a comparison with the London 2012 Olympics, we spent a fortune to put them on whilst making huge budget cuts, the british people though decided to embrace the games and I think most of us enjoyed it. perhaps we should take the rio Olympics off of their hands as they are so far behind building them.

The ref was pretty quick in making the decision on the penalty, but as I saisd earlier this won't be the last of this type of thing. I agree that it is pretty essential that Brazil stay through to at least the semi finals to help quieten down the unrest. Having been to Brazil on two separate visits there is definitely a huge divide between the haves and the have nots, so although I don't agree with riots they do have a real issue over there. They are one of the biggest oil producers in the world but where does the money go!
Back on Lovren I doubt it if we will see him in a Saints shirt again. I think he has had his head turned , probably by agents and other players.
I hope I am wrong as he is an exceptional CB, just remember what it was like when he was injured!

Well it's a shame they didn't consult you prior to his appointment. You'd have been able to tell them a thing or two eh!?

Two expensive duds - I can think of one who might fit that and even he might have done okay if he hadn't decided to try to hospitalize his own team.

Who is the other dud? Unless you mean Pinchatinny himself and some may agree with you if that's so.

We (and that includes you) have no idea who is on the wanted list of players. The incoming manager will decide who is suitable and who he wants out.

Lovren is indeed a class player but if reports in the press are true he lacks somewhat in the principles and moral fibre aspect of human life. We will not miss the boat in terms of keeping players as without the new manager giving the thumbs up or down they are all under long term contracts and will be going nowhere until he says so.

I suspect Mr Reed would love to, "Screw the paperwork". Unfortunately one of his key tasks is to ensure that paperwork is done in totality and is scrupulously transparent and completed in line with FA and FIFA regulations. I expect you don't have to live by rules and regulations though but I'm sure you could get someone to read them and explain them to you, you might have to take ten mins off your mobile though.

Now calm down, think it through, and you will see why your post was so easy to ridicule - nothing personal mate but this hotheaded, over emotional nonsense gets really wearing sometime when you just know if the person posting were to read it back to themselves they wold realize what a load of blx they've just dribble out.

This is going to be the best season ever!

I don't care what he did at Charlton, just like I didn't care what MP did at espanyol.
Les Reed has been at saints for over 4yrs and has done a great job so far. you are only moaning about him because hes the one who has been giving interviews. the new manager will be announced at the right time and not before hes signed, `screw the paperwork`? so we wont protect ourselves if the manager wants out or leave ourselves open to law suits if hes sacked, just so that you know who it is now, that's a great idea! how do you know that the paperwork isn't about us signing a player at the same time as the manager which means negotiations with 2 different parties.
smoke and mirrors, that's a good one. what do you think they are hiding?
calm down and wait, theres no point getting all annoyed about something that might not happen!

Les Reed has been at saints for over 4yrs and has done a great job so far. you are only moaning about him because hes the one who has been giving interviews. the new manager will be announced at the right time and not before hes signed, `screw the paperwork`? so we wont protect ourselves if the manager wants out or leave ourselves open to law suits if hes sacked, just so that you know who it is now, that's a great idea! how do you know that the paperwork isn't about us signing a player at the same time as the manager which means negotiations with 2 different parties. smoke and mirrors, that's a good one. what do you think they are hiding? calm down and wait, theres no point getting all annoyed about something that might not happen! el caballo santos101

Horrible though such a possibility is, and it is only a possibility not absolute the certainty you state it to be, how does that excuse such second-rate refereeing? Using your premis, we should not bother to play any of the games at all and simply award the World Cup to Brazil without ever asking them to kick a ball.

There would deffo be a riot straight away and people would be killed if it was announced the Brazilians would not be allowed to kick a ball before winning the trophy. Retfordia is right and it's better that the refs "manage" the situation so they are seen to win and no-one is killed. The next worse option is that the refs don't interfere and there is a riot and people get killed, but they get killed a bit later than they would if it was announced they couldn't kick a ball - but you'd have to have a disproportionate love of football to choose that option.

JWP, Gallagher, Reed, Isgrove, Targett, Turnbull. (J Rod - Xmas time?
Add to this £60 mill plus in the war chest from the transfer money. Plus what has already been deposited there by the board (who knows how much)
Some of the names linked with us Ings, DeVrij. Indis, Clasie, Hunt, Caulker, Marshall, Herndandez, Pruddy, Forster.

So what point was it you were trying to make? 'Cos that looks (with a few of the transfers in) quite a useful squad. I'm sure the incoming manager will bring in his own players and maybe let a couple of the old guard go too which could make the squad even stronger.

your right MP did go whilst he had a year left on his contract, but because of that contract he/spuds had to pay £2mill just to quit. so I think you will find the contract did mean something.
as for lalla, shaw and dejan the fact that they are on long term contracts means that if WE decide to sell we will get a lot higher fee than if they only had a year on their contracts, if we decide not to sell then they cant go anywhere for 4yrs. we could just put them in with the reserves like we did to punch. do you think players who have just broken into the England squad want to sit in the reserves for a year?
whos coulmans? if you mean koeman then the odds would suggest that he is in fact going to be the next manager. 1/10 is very low odds, I thik you need to research betting odds before you make a comment like that!
the comparison of buying a house is in fact a good one, put it like this. you wouldn't buy a house, ie get a mortgage without checking out the legal side would you? a mortgage is in fact a contract between you and the lender. as with MP having to pay back £2mill for leaving early if you pay back a mortgage early you will have to pay a penalty. I would suggest you look at any contract before you sign it, you could try for a mortgage and say to the lender `screw the paperwork I`m in a hurry` they might agree and you could end up paying triple what you should and not own the house at the end.
so go on you say `screw the paperwork` next time your in a rush to do something, then see how screwed you would be!

Who is the other dud? Unless you mean Pinchatinny himself and some may agree with you if that's so.

We (and that includes you) have no idea who is on the wanted list of players. The incoming manager will decide who is suitable and who he wants out.

Lovren is indeed a class player but if reports in the press are true he lacks somewhat in the principles and moral fibre aspect of human life. We will not miss the boat in terms of keeping players as without the new manager giving the thumbs up or down they are all under long term contracts and will be going nowhere until he says so.

I suspect Mr Reed would love to, "Screw the paperwork". Unfortunately one of his key tasks is to ensure that paperwork is done in totality and is scrupulously transparent and completed in line with FA and FIFA regulations. I expect you don't have to live by rules and regulations though but I'm sure you could get someone to read them and explain them to you, you might have to take ten mins off your mobile though.

But if he brings a couple of the Dutch youngsters with him I will be orgasmic. Lens came on toward the end the speed of the man as he went hpast the FB was electrifying and he is one of the linked with us apparently. One of the others scored. Life is good tonight. No need for prozac before going to bed.

Next Southampton manager set to be Ronald Koeman as he agrees terms with Saints




Ronald Koeman is set to become Southampton’s new manager.

The Holland legend agreed terms on Friday to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at St Mary’s, and is expected to be unveiled when he returns from holiday.

He was first interviewed a fortnight ago but the deal looked to have stalled because of a dispute over the transfer budget he demanded.

However, the Saints' owner Katharina Liebherr has now promised Koeman a sizeable war chest to revamp the squad he'll inherit.

The ex-Valencia and PSV Eindhoven manager, 51, quit Dutch side Feyenoord at the end of last season following a three-year stint in charge.

Saints drew up a four-man shortlist to replace new Spurs chief Pochettino, including Fulham boss Felix Magath, but ex-Barcelona ace Koeman was always their preferred choice.

His desire to play attractive football and blood young players fitted the Saints’ criteria.

Y'see Pinchatinny this is how honourable men do it.

It wasn't a great decision but I've seen worse. The ref had a fairly reasonable game otherwise and his view of the incident may well have given him the impression that Fred was pulled down. All very well looking at all the angles but I think everyone at the time would have been thinking 'I'd like to see that again'. Refs don't get that opportunity and the players' acting doesn't help them, plus it is all very well making decisions with five angles in slow motion sat in an armchair or studio, less easy running around in the heat trying to keep your eye on everything.

In terms of the protests, I don't think they are worried about football - it's more about being able to eat/live and not get their homes bulldozed for a bunch of rich people to have four weeks of fun.
come on saintjd, these are meant to be the best refs in the world and he shouldn't need all the replays and angles in slow motion to notice how a player falls. if dejan had pulled him fred would have fallen backwards, instead his feet went from under him and he dropped like a stone, its not hard to work that out is it?
it wasn't the only big game changing decision the ref made though is it. he should have sent neymar off for the elbow, he looked straight at the Croatian player before raising his arm to hit him in the head/neck. why did the ref only book him, I thought an elbow/raised arm was a straight red. he then also disallowed the second Croatian goal for no apparent reason. three huge game changing decisions that should have gone Croatia`s way but went in favour of the home team, you cant say he had a reasonable game if by mistake he got all of those decisions wrong.
I have long said that we don't need technology in football (except goal line which I think has worked) we just need to help refs out more, how about four linesmen per game?
agree with the protests, there seems to be a strong anarchist element behind them. however brazil have spent £6.5bill to put on the world cup whilst having budget cuts of £11.5bill, all of the profit from tv rights etc go to fifa not to the local people, which is wrong in my opinion. they will benefit from the huge influx of visiting fans though. they are also unhappy at the amount of money being spent on the Olympics in two years time. I can understand their anger but not their actions.
there is a comparison with the London 2012 Olympics, we spent a fortune to put them on whilst making huge budget cuts, the british people though decided to embrace the games and I think most of us enjoyed it. perhaps we should take the rio Olympics off of their hands as they are so far behind building them.
No - that's rubbish to say we don't need more technology - the Brazil/Croatia game proved the game DOES need it.
We need a fourth ref in the stand who can refer to video replay evidence.
An aggrieved team captain can appeal a decision his team disagrees with and he gets two "strikes" just like in cricket.
If his appeal his upheld his team keeps that "strike".
I think technology should be made available to help refs get the RIGHT decision.

On the other hand, Tim Cahill just about gets his shirt ripped off and nothing given. It's the lack of consistency that's the problem.

This was a goal decision the new goal line technology should be used in these situations.

As for Lovren he has a long contract with Saints so Koeman's must tell him and Adam that they are staying put.
Big Ron was a top defender so should impress Lovren and will add one of Feyenoord's center-backs to play with him.

Whilst I would like Luke to stay, if we got Butner & Hernandez plus £10m I would take it. We then need to spend that £10m plus Osvaldo on a big top striker. Then add the transfer chest that Katharina has promised Big Ron he can spend on 2 or 3 more top players & we will have a hell of a squad next season.

We (and that includes you) have no idea who is on the wanted list of players. The incoming manager will decide who is suitable and who he wants out.

Lovren is indeed a class player but if reports in the press are true he lacks somewhat in the principles and moral fibre aspect of human life. We will not miss the boat in terms of keeping players as without the new manager giving the thumbs up or down they are all under long term contracts and will be going nowhere until he says so.

I suspect Mr Reed would love to, "Screw the paperwork". Unfortunately one of his key tasks is to ensure that paperwork is done in totality and is scrupulously transparent and completed in line with FA and FIFA regulations. I expect you don't have to live by rules and regulations though but I'm sure you could get someone to read them and explain them to you, you might have to take ten mins off your mobile though.

Now calm down, think it through, and you will see why your post was so easy to ridicule - nothing personal mate but this hotheaded, over emotional nonsense gets really wearing sometime when you just know if the person posting were to read it back to themselves they wold realize what a load of blx they've just dribble out.

Unfortunately one of his key tasks is to ensure that paperwork is done in totality and is scrupulously transparent and completed in line with FA and FIFA regulations. I expect you don't have to live by rules and regulations though but I'm sure you could get someone to read them and explain them to you, you might have to take ten mins off your mobile though. Now calm down, think it through, and you will see why your post was so easy to ridicule - nothing personal mate but this hotheaded, over emotional nonsense gets really wearing sometime when you just know if the person posting were to read it back to themselves they wold realize what a load of blx they've just dribble out. This is going to be the best season ever![/p][/quote]Forren?[/p][/quote]Gawd yeah! Forgot all about our young viking, wasn't here long enough to find out where the Bargate was though was he? Who actually signed him anybody know? jls217

This was a goal decision the new goal line technology should be used in these situations.

As for Lovren he has a long contract with Saints so Koeman's must tell him and Adam that they are staying put.
Big Ron was a top defender so should impress Lovren and will add one of Feyenoord's center-backs to play with him.

Whilst I would like Luke to stay, if we got Butner & Hernandez plus £10m I would take it. We then need to spend that £10m plus Osvaldo on a big top striker. Then add the transfer chest that Katharina has promised Big Ron he can spend on 2 or 3 more top players & we will have a hell of a squad next season.
Why would you ever want Bütner? He seems only marginally better than Steve de Ridder.
Nope we certainly do not want Butner. Remember he was close to signing for us before Manure stepped and thankfully poached him - saved us a lot of money and embarrassment there fellas thank you.

If he's not good enough for Manure why would he suddenly be good enough for us? If we need a solid LB Cresswell or Bertrand would fit the bill. Though if it is confirmed Koeman is coming in I'm sure he will have a little rough diamond somewhere in his inventory he can polish up and turn into a good LB.

Next Southampton manager set to be Ronald Koeman as he agrees terms with Saints




Ronald Koeman is set to become Southampton’s new manager.

The Holland legend agreed terms on Friday to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at St Mary’s, and is expected to be unveiled when he returns from holiday.

He was first interviewed a fortnight ago but the deal looked to have stalled because of a dispute over the transfer budget he demanded.

However, the Saints' owner Katharina Liebherr has now promised Koeman a sizeable war chest to revamp the squad he'll inherit.

The ex-Valencia and PSV Eindhoven manager, 51, quit Dutch side Feyenoord at the end of last season following a three-year stint in charge.

Saints drew up a four-man shortlist to replace new Spurs chief Pochettino, including Fulham boss Felix Magath, but ex-Barcelona ace Koeman was always their preferred choice.

His desire to play attractive football and blood young players fitted the Saints’ criteria.

If anyone actually takes the trouble to fully read the statement the reason that talks stalled would be over the same problem that led MoPo to leave.
A good point well made, but as usual we are reading between the lines and can only speculate about these things, nothing seems to be straightforward these days and the roller coaster has been bumping along on a rocky straight, perhaps now it can start to climb ready for a massive downhill rush to success. Time will tell. Just continue to enjoy the ride, it won't all be plain sailing.

That's made me think. Who can remember this?

8 August 2009
Along with teenager, Morgan Schneiderlin and academy hopeful, Adam Lallana, here's the team that faced Millwall at SMS in our first game in League 1:
Davies, Harding, Thomas, Perry, Murty, James, Wotton, Saganowski, Paterson; the last of whom scored the Saints goal in a 1-1 draw.

We've come a long way and, with much respect for all those who played their part back then, I reckon the 11 you listed, Dors, would give that 11 a hell of a whopping.

Even IF (and that's all it is) we lose those you have left out of your eleven, it's not all doom and gloom, and seeing Fabregas and Van Persie scoring this evening reminded me that even a team the size of Arsenal can't always hang on to their prize assests.
I saw that game Strass. I thought it was the Reading fella who scored. Antonio? Was it?
Dan Harding impressed me that day.
Hi Mac, how are things? Tbh, I had to look it all up and, on ESPN, it recorded the goalscorer as some Polish bloke who, to my knowledge, never even played for us. So, maybe I am wrong that Pattison was the scorer.

BUT, according to the same kind of reliable, in-the-know source that many claim to have access to when it comes to what's going on these days at SMS (in my case, Wiki) 'Southampton signed Antonio on loan on 5 October 2009'. So, I guess it wasn't him.

It's funny how time plays tricks with our memory, isn't it? I was watching some old World Cup clips this week and THAT tear-shedding match in 1990. My memory was that Gazza was taken off shortly after his booking. As I know now, he wasn't.

I still reckon, given the chance, Robson should have made a 119th-minute change, bringing on big Dave Bessant in place of Shilts for the shoot out. That would have sent panic down the German lines.
