Midfield duo key to Saints' Premier League survival

Daily Echo: Morgan Schneiderlin Morgan Schneiderlin

Nigel Adkins believes Jack Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin have the potential to be a central midfield powerhouse pairing for Saints.

Cork’s return to the team after injury has resulted in four points from the last two games as Saints start to show the kind of form that could drag them to Premier League safety.

It should hardly be surprising when you consider that Cork has lost just 11 of the 52 games he has started since making a permanent move to the club from Chelsea just over a year ago. More than that, Adkins (pictured left) has been desperate to pair Cork and Schneiderlin together in a new look Continued: Page 37 midfield that sees the 23-year-olds sitting in front of the back four.

With Cork’s energy and dynamism and Schneiderlin’s fantastic passing ability they look every inch a Premier League partnership.

“He (Cork) was yet again outstanding – him and Morgan Schneiderlin together,” raved Adkins.

“I played Jack Cork in every game after I signed him last season.

“He was called up for the Great Britain team for the Olympics which is a great honour obviously but we didn’t have him for pre-season.

“He came back and in his first game he got injured, he came back after that and got injured straightaway in his comeback game.

“We’ve not had an opportunity to have Jack Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin together until now.

“They are two young 23-year-olds who I believe have got so much potential and we can get a good partnership going with them.“We also have young James Ward-Prowse who is going to be phenomenal for us and Steven Davis we have brought in and is still very young in footballling terms but has a wealth of experience he can help the players with.”

Schneiderlin and Cork also have enviable statistics in games they have started together over the past season and a bit.

In that time they have been on the losing side on just six out of 21 occasions.

The partnership between Cork and Morgan is the most important thing for the team this year. They're the engine room that will buffer the defence and give the forwards freedom to play.

It's funny because Anglo-French partnerships don't always work but when they do the results can be spectacular. Think of Concorde, the Channel Tunnel, Stereolab and, er, my dad who swears blind he had a go on Bridget Bardot back in the 60s before she went mental.

Where did all the previous comments go? Ah well, no loss.

All I have to say is that I think Jack Cork is a large part of the reason why the performance in the last two games has been so much better; good defensive cover from the midfield was always lacking.

He's very low key; easy to miss his contribution, so well done to the management team for seeing it and sticking with him.

Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?

Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.

I have to be honest and say on a few occasions last season that I didn't think JC bought much to team at times. But his absence and subsequent return to the first team has certainly shown me that he brings a lot to the team with his style of play. He has taken pressure of the defenders and also MS who has 1 goal and an assist in 2 games. Keep up the goodwork and I do believe they may become 2 of the best midfielders in th BPL.

I agree with you regarding last season - I had the same opinion - but I've come to see it as blindness on my behalf. I think it comes down to his not being particularly flamboyant. He's very hard to notice on the pitch as he just gets on with his job unobtrusively and very effectively.

So, I've totally changed my opinion of him; I see him as a pretty key player now and I think he's terrific in partnership with Spiderman.

I don't.

The thing with players like Corky and Spider is that you don't really notice how good they are until they're not in the team. When Spider got injured this season we turned to absolute crud. I think our revival has been sparked firstly by getting him back and then by getting Cork back.

Now it's game on. I actually feel sorry for the rest of the league.

I'm not convinced by Davis yet. He has his moments but I'm not sure he adds much we didn't already have.

Time will tell, hope i'm wrong.

I don't.

The thing with players like Corky and Spider is that you don't really notice how good they are until they're not in the team. When Spider got injured this season we turned to absolute crud. I think our revival has been sparked firstly by getting him back and then by getting Cork back.

Now it's game on. I actually feel sorry for the rest of the league.
You make a good point.

However, the problem with the Saints is that we are very vulnerable defensively and once the ball is in our box it generally goes in the net.

Attack is the best form of defense. We need one man in D/CM to protect the defense and also allow the other two midfielders (Gaston and Cork) to move forward, either getting it to a lone striker (Rickie) or getting it on the wings to Lallana or Puncheon.

For this job to protect the defense and allow the other two to get forward by getting it out to them (without "Route 1"), I think Davis is more effective at that job than Schneiderlin.

What are Davis's strengths?

I'm not being silly I'm just not sure. Is it tackling and defensive cover? Is it passing? Is it playmaker? I understand the role of the others but not fully worked his out yet.

Cork is a great holding midfielder but allow him to move forward with Gaston and he could be even more effective than he is now, and the position should be Davis as he is a better holding midfielder than Schneiderlin.

Davis plays best as a holding midfielder (or as you say tackling and defensive cover) but is also good at passing the ball out and moving forward, controlling it and getting it forward on the ground, making defense from attack. These jobs together make him a very good player.

I thought Davis was meant to be a creative midfielder with a decent range of passing, sort of in the Paul Scholes mould.

I've not seen an awful lot of that so far, although this might just be because we've spent quite a lot of time on the back foot.

He could be a creative midfielder but against Man City he was more effective as the defensive and passing midfielder.

That said we lost 3-2.

Either way, it's great to have someone of SD quality to come in and cover when we have injuries/suspensions
, or an impact off the bench like Saturday. Morgan is on his 4th yellow so no doubt SD will get his chance to show he should start alongside JC. It's great to have this kind of competition for a starting place!

Exactly - the last thing I want to do is knock SD because we'll rely on him in some pretty big games this year, but my first two would always be Cork next to Spider.

Does Rickie need to play with a stiker alongside him, do we think? I'm undecided.

I reckon that with Ramirez sitting just behind him and with Lals and Punch cutting in from the wings there should be plenty of service, but is anyone else clinical enough to take the chances that don't fall to Rickie? (I don't know btw...)

Maybe he means Stuka, or even a Stoker. Rickie does lack a bit of pace, and needs to rough up the opposition a bit more with underhand Stoking techniques.

I'm not convinced by Davis yet. He has his moments but I'm not sure he adds much we didn't already have.

Time will tell, hope i'm wrong.
Schneiderlin is fantastic, I am not arguing against that, but I feel that Davis could be more effective for the job we need.
What are Davis's strengths?

I'm not being silly I'm just not sure. Is it tackling and defensive cover? Is it passing? Is it playmaker? I understand the role of the others but not fully worked his out yet.
the thing is his he any better than dean hammond .and we sent him out on loan .so far he has given no more to the team then dean did ,maybe we could of kept dean and signed a left back .which would of made more sense
I've come to the conclusion that there just aren't that many amazing left backs around. There are certainly none available for under, say, £3m who are any better than Shaw will be in a month or two. Maybe it just wasn't worth spaffing a load of money at a position where we're going to be fine in any event?

I think J Rod, Tadanari Lee and Mayuka will need to be patient and be prepared to wait for their moments as long as Rickie, Gaston and Punchy and Lallana are fit. They'll be first choice if they can keep performing in the settled side which now seems to be evolving.
Let's hope for another 3 points against the Toon and then we can see if we are now beginning to get a foothold in the league and hopefully climb the table.

Only 2-4 years there.

Really! Still I guess that's what raw emotions do. I do remember one of your teams finished in 12th a few years back. I would think that team would turn your current lot over.

Big big week for your club over the next week - could define your season. My guess is that 2 straight wins could give you a chance of finishing in the top15

Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?
Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.
Yes, it is well known that the French played a pivotal part in WWII, Petain being their best general on the field against the nazis...
Also, let's not forget that they helped decorate London with a lot of commemorative monuments to the Napoleonic wars.

Yeah I agree that they need to be patient but I also feel that J Rod has had a lot more of a crack at the whip than Mayuka and Lee but hasn’t taken it. I really believe the later two have some real quality to offer but as said, they’re gonna have to be patient and when they do get the chance, grab it with both hands.

I'm not convinced by Davis yet. He has his moments but I'm not sure he adds much we didn't already have.

Time will tell, hope i'm wrong.
Schneiderlin is fantastic, I am not arguing against that, but I feel that Davis could be more effective for the job we need.
What are Davis's strengths?

I'm not being silly I'm just not sure. Is it tackling and defensive cover? Is it passing? Is it playmaker? I understand the role of the others but not fully worked his out yet.
Davis plays best as a holding midfielder (or as you say tackling and defensive cover) but is also good at passing the ball out and moving forward, controlling it and getting it forward on the ground, making defense from attack. These jobs together make him a very good player.
Either way, it's great to have someone of SD quality to come in and cover when we have injuries/suspensions


, or an impact off the bench like Saturday. Morgan is on his 4th yellow so no doubt SD will get his chance to show he should start alongside JC. It's great to have this kind of competition for a starting place!

COYR
Exactly - the last thing I want to do is knock SD because we'll rely on him in some pretty big games this year, but my first two would always be Cork next to Spider.
Well, I just wanted to show my total lack of football knowledge by saying that I do miss Chaplow. I think he was fantastic and with a better defensive rate than anyone. When he was on form we were destroying everyone last year. As soon as he was missing we were so-so.
As I said, maybe I am just speaking out of gratitude for what he did last year, but I think we should not rule him out.

It's funny because Anglo-French partnerships don't always work but when they do the results can be spectacular. Think of Concorde, the Channel Tunnel, Stereolab and, er, my dad who swears blind he had a go on Bridget Bardot back in the 60s before she went mental.
Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?
Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.
Yes, it is well known that the French played a pivotal part in WWII, Petain being their best general on the field against the nazis...
Also, let's not forget that they helped decorate London with a lot of commemorative monuments to the Napoleonic wars.
I mean the COOL French people. You know, people like Albert Camus who joined up to the resistance and then tunneled into the swimming pool to try and rescue the allies at half time in Escape To Victory. They were mint.
Sorry, I didn't know you were referring to a 5% of their population!!!

5%? Do me a favour. I've SEEN 'Allo 'Allo and I can tell you that pretty much every Franch person (other than fat blokes who ran cafes and just wanted a quiet life) was in the resistance and fought bravely for their freedom. You can't argue with documentary evidence.

OK, you got me there. I don't have access to highly specialised research material for historians.
The truth is that what pushed Hitler to kill himself was actually knowing that, after dealing with the 8 million crazy Russians at the front gate of his bunker, he still would have to face "La Resistance"... and that was clearly too much for him!

It's funny because Anglo-French partnerships don't always work but when they do the results can be spectacular. Think of Concorde, the Channel Tunnel, Stereolab and, er, my dad who swears blind he had a go on Bridget Bardot back in the 60s before she went mental.
Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?
Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.
Yes, it is well known that the French played a pivotal part in WWII, Petain being their best general on the field against the nazis...
Also, let's not forget that they helped decorate London with a lot of commemorative monuments to the Napoleonic wars.
I mean the COOL French people. You know, people like Albert Camus who joined up to the resistance and then tunneled into the swimming pool to try and rescue the allies at half time in Escape To Victory. They were mint.
Sorry, I didn't know you were referring to a 5% of their population!!!
;)
5%? Do me a favour. I've SEEN 'Allo 'Allo and I can tell you that pretty much every Franch person (other than fat blokes who ran cafes and just wanted a quiet life) was in the resistance and fought bravely for their freedom. You can't argue with documentary evidence.
OK, you got me there. I don't have access to highly specialised research material for historians.
The truth is that what pushed Hitler to kill himself was actually knowing that, after dealing with the 8 million crazy Russians at the front gate of his bunker, he still would have to face "La Resistance"... and that was clearly too much for him!
To be fair, pretty much any BBC comedy from the 80s could be used as an instrument of warfare, although I'm not sure how you'd square it with the Geneva Convention.

I mean, Israel might be bombing the living daylights out of Gaza but you'd see the public's sympathies turn against the Palestinians pretty quickly if they retaliated by blasting out episodes of 'Keeping Up Appearances' at targets in Tel Aviv. I think the use of 'Birds Of A Feather' in a combat scenario officially constitutes a war crime. And rightly so.

Probably the Israelis are just trying to "selectively" destroy a stash of such films considering them weapons of mass destruction. It is possible that Hamas was trying to smuggle them to Iran and one thing is to have nuclear weapons and the other... wait a second... weren't we discussing football?... how the hell did we end up here??!

Does Rickie need to play with a stiker alongside him, do we think? I'm undecided. I reckon that with Ramirez sitting just behind him and with Lals and Punch cutting in from the wings there should be plenty of service, but is anyone else clinical enough to take the chances that don't fall to Rickie? (I don't know btw...)
I think J Rod, Tadanari Lee and Mayuka will need to be patient and be prepared to wait for their moments as long as Rickie, Gaston and Punchy and Lallana are fit. They'll be first choice if they can keep performing in the settled side which now seems to be evolving. Let's hope for another 3 points against the Toon and then we can see if we are now beginning to get a foothold in the league and hopefully climb the table.
agree all the way to 3 points sunday
Yeah I agree that they need to be patient but I also feel that J Rod has had a lot more of a crack at the whip than Mayuka and Lee but hasn’t taken it. I really believe the later two have some real quality to offer but as said, they’re gonna have to be patient and when they do get the chance, grab it with both hands.
I feel the same about J Rod. He seemed to come in with so much hope, sounded the part, looked the part, then totally and utterly underperformed.

Whether it was the fact that he was being asked to play out of his normal position, I simply don't know. His head went down and he seemed to lose his confidence.

However, he does need to pick himself up and push more now that we have so many attacking options (and an attack that seems to be back working). If he doesn't, he'll be in the doldrums forever. If he does, he's obviously capable and should shine through. I think the problem's all in his head, so it's his choice.

agree all the way to 3 points sunday
Yeah I agree that they need to be patient but I also feel that J Rod has had a lot more of a crack at the whip than Mayuka and Lee but hasn’t taken it. I really believe the later two have some real quality to offer but as said, they’re gonna have to be patient and when they do get the chance, grab it with both hands.
I feel the same about J Rod. He seemed to come in with so much hope, sounded the part, looked the part, then totally and utterly underperformed.

Whether it was the fact that he was being asked to play out of his normal position, I simply don't know. His head went down and he seemed to lose his confidence.

However, he does need to pick himself up and push more now that we have so many attacking options (and an attack that seems to be back working). If he doesn't, he'll be in the doldrums forever. If he does, he's obviously capable and should shine through. I think the problem's all in his head, so it's his choice.

Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?
Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.
Yes, it is well known that the French played a pivotal part in WWII, Petain being their best general on the field against the nazis...
Also, let's not forget that they helped decorate London with a lot of commemorative monuments to the Napoleonic wars.
I mean the COOL French people. You know, people like Albert Camus who joined up to the resistance and then tunneled into the swimming pool to try and rescue the allies at half time in Escape To Victory. They were mint.

OK. As we are talking footy.

Fair point. I would take Bridge over Hreiderssan.
I would probably put Pahars slightly ahead of Boateng - but only slightly - as he did go to Milan straight after. Defoe's goal to game ratio at Pompey was 1 in 2 - so no comparison - and he he was an England regular during his time at Pompey.
I think Niemi was a good goalie, but even Hislop lasted 10 years at the top and was great at Newcastle. But Niemi was v good at Saints, so maybe he could make the bench.
Bale, Walcott and Oxy were all up and coming at your club before they left, but maybe Bale could edge Berger out - but only maybe - as Berger was class - but fading.
Sheringham had only just stopped playing for England when he came to Pompey - so Lambert is not getting a look in.

So, here we are. I am sure you will disagree though

James
De Zeeuw Campbell
Johnson Bridge
Diarra Muntari
Stone Taylor
Yakubu Defoe

Subs - Niemi, Distin, Bale, Pahars, Sheringham

Breaking news.
I have received details of an advert soon to be placed in free ads.
Sits Vac.
Small south coast L1 club invites application for a new manager. The position offers potential to experience a different league every year. Following recent relegations from Premiership and Championship we fully expect to be playing L2 next season and Conference the year after. The applicant should be fully able to operate in the shadow of it's wealthy and successful neighbour with it's Premiership status and numerous international players. Ability to work with a fully disfunctional side consisting of youth, failed professionals,journe
ymen and just plain donkeys is essential. An attractive package is available. The selected individual will be given the benefit of a one week rolling contract. This will be paid weekly in advance to ensure payment is made and will be at or near the government minimum wage. Illegal immigrants are welcome to apply at a lower rate but with the benefit of cash in hand payments if the gate money is high enough. Travellers are also very welcome to apply. Additional benefits would include free parking of your caravans on land adjacent to the ground on land we are hoping to acquire soon. Free grazing is available on our cabbage patch of a pitch for your horses. For those of you with donkeys we should be able to fit them seamlessly into our current squad alongside the existing ones. Ablilty to deal with a fully delusional fanbase would also be useful. Quiet periods would be provided by the club. These would normally be during the last 10 minutes of games when the blue few have tired of booing their team and gone home. This situation should improve over the coming seasons as we are planning to make our strip a darker blue.. This will automatically transform the blue few into the bluer fewer. No applications will be entertained from present or former employees mof the Inland Revenue.

Yeah I agree that they need to be patient but I also feel that J Rod has had a lot more of a crack at the whip than Mayuka and Lee but hasn’t taken it. I really believe the later two have some real quality to offer but as said, they’re gonna have to be patient and when they do get the chance, grab it with both hands.
I feel the same about J Rod. He seemed to come in with so much hope, sounded the part, looked the part, then totally and utterly underperformed.

Whether it was the fact that he was being asked to play out of his normal position, I simply don't know. His head went down and he seemed to lose his confidence.

However, he does need to pick himself up and push more now that we have so many attacking options (and an attack that seems to be back working). If he doesn't, he'll be in the doldrums forever. If he does, he's obviously capable and should shine through. I think the problem's all in his head, so it's his choice.

I reckon that with Ramirez sitting just behind him and with Lals and Punch cutting in from the wings there should be plenty of service, but is anyone else clinical enough to take the chances that don't fall to Rickie? (I don't know btw...)[/p][/quote]I think J Rod, Tadanari Lee and Mayuka will need to be patient and be prepared to wait for their moments as long as Rickie, Gaston and Punchy and Lallana are fit. They'll be first choice if they can keep performing in the settled side which now seems to be evolving. Let's hope for another 3 points against the Toon and then we can see if we are now beginning to get a foothold in the league and hopefully climb the table.[/p][/quote]agree all the way to 3 points sunday[/p][/quote]Yeah I agree that they need to be patient but I also feel that J Rod has had a lot more of a crack at the whip than Mayuka and Lee but hasn’t taken it. I really believe the later two have some real quality to offer but as said, they’re gonna have to be patient and when they do get the chance, grab it with both hands.[/p][/quote]I feel the same about J Rod. He seemed to come in with so much hope, sounded the part, looked the part, then totally and utterly underperformed. Whether it was the fact that he was being asked to play out of his normal position, I simply don't know. His head went down and he seemed to lose his confidence. However, he does need to pick himself up and push more now that we have so many attacking options (and an attack that seems to be back working). If he doesn't, he'll be in the doldrums forever. If he does, he's obviously capable and should shine through. I think the problem's all in his head, so it's his choice.[/p][/quote]Rodriguez has only started a few games, give him a chance! He's not the finished article yet, he'll come good,[/p][/quote]How many chances and how many points dropped first though? £7m is alot of money![/p][/quote]southampton work best i think 4 - 5 -1 meaning no room for lambo and j rod at the same. up saints

It's funny because Anglo-French partnerships don't always work but when they do the results can be spectacular. Think of Concorde, the Channel Tunnel, Stereolab and, er, my dad who swears blind he had a go on Bridget Bardot back in the 60s before she went mental.
Yes, but you have to think of these as well:

- JK Rowling's grandparents.
- Mary Tudor and Louis XII (he died because they tried too hard - and failed - to produce an heir).
- Strassie and the French administration, French opening hours, all French drivers, most French waiters (but the waitresses are forgiven) and nearly every French shop assistant (male & female).

How's little Retford? Did he score with any of the wonderful NHS nurses?
Little Retford's on the mend, cheers. He's still got all types of liquid coming out of both ends but the main thing is he's out of hospital and his mum is dealing with that while I'm at work.

As for Anglo-French relations, let's not forget how during the war we united to help crush those bad prats (and the Nazis WERE prats) to the East. Southampton are learning the lessons of history well.
Yes, it is well known that the French played a pivotal part in WWII, Petain being their best general on the field against the nazis...
Also, let's not forget that they helped decorate London with a lot of commemorative monuments to the Napoleonic wars.
I mean the COOL French people. You know, people like Albert Camus who joined up to the resistance and then tunneled into the swimming pool to try and rescue the allies at half time in Escape To Victory. They were mint.
Sorry, I didn't know you were referring to a 5% of their population!!!
;)
5%? Do me a favour. I've SEEN 'Allo 'Allo and I can tell you that pretty much every Franch person (other than fat blokes who ran cafes and just wanted a quiet life) was in the resistance and fought bravely for their freedom. You can't argue with documentary evidence.
OK, you got me there. I don't have access to highly specialised research material for historians.
The truth is that what pushed Hitler to kill himself was actually knowing that, after dealing with the 8 million crazy Russians at the front gate of his bunker, he still would have to face "La Resistance"... and that was clearly too much for him!
To be fair, pretty much any BBC comedy from the 80s could be used as an instrument of warfare, although I'm not sure how you'd square it with the Geneva Convention.

I mean, Israel might be bombing the living daylights out of Gaza but you'd see the public's sympathies turn against the Palestinians pretty quickly if they retaliated by blasting out episodes of 'Keeping Up Appearances' at targets in Tel Aviv. I think the use of 'Birds Of A Feather' in a combat scenario officially constitutes a war crime. And rightly so.
I was half way through an English lesson by phone, discussing women's emancipation during the 1920s (the student's choice, not mine) when I got a bit bored and scanned through the thread to pass the time. There is, of course, nothing funny about the bombing of Gaza, but when I stopped and read this one, Retford. I was nearly doubled up.

It ruined my understanding of the role the First World War played in the liberation of la femme moderne françaises. Guess I'll just have to check it out on Wiki.fr

I understand what you're saying and, as I said, I think he had the attitude and talent when he arrived. I just worry that his head's down now (perhaps he was expecting to adapt a bit quicker than he was able to, I don't know) He hasn't looked like he's enjoying it; that's the worry for me.

Hopefully he'll be able to lift himself mentally and get back to showing us the talent he quite clearly has.

What do you mean, “stick with” 442? We have ditched it recently and look much the better for it. Don’t think that you can start with 442 in the Premier League, certainly not with our back five. Playing with one up front, 4411 or 451 – however you like to read it – we look a much better balanced side and provide more cover down the flanks and in front of the back four. In Lambert’s absence, J Rod and perhaps Guly can play the up front role where the key requisites are ability to get on the end of crosses, hold the ball up and lay it off. Certainly not Mayuka (too small and not strong enough to hold it up with his back to goal) and probably not Lee (similar shortcomings but not so pronounced).

Ramirez is obviously the best in the hole but Lallana can play there too, as can probably the much improved Puncheon. But these two give us great attacking options on the flanks, going wide or cutting in. Morgan and Cork holding and box to box (alternating at times but prefer Morgan deeper) every time for me. Davis and JWP are strong replacements, however.

Spoke to 3 blokes today who were at the QPR game but not together.
They all made the same point first.
Cork is the reason for the change in fortunes.
their second point was different.
Puncheon was greedy but good.
Lallana made more effort to help Shaw than he did Fox.
Yoshida so nearly scored an overhead kick and was dependable in defence.
All these points were eye witness and not due to the prompting of MOTD.
All of them were also impressed with the fact that when QPR pulled one back Saints just steamrollered on exactly as they had before the goal.
Their opinion was that Fox coming on was because we expected a push from QPR and experience would be needed, it did not happen and Fox was able to attack more than defend.
There have been comments that QPR were rubbish and we can only beat teams that are sh!t...good, just need to find one more team like that and we finish 17th at the end of the season.
I think though that a win was what was needed and will give some confidence to improve further.
Support the Saints, I do.

To me he's the Lambert replacement be in through injury or in the 75th minute when he tires. I don't think he was bought for the development squad, I think he was bought for the main squad which is a Prem squad.

If we play two upfront I'd expect to see Lambert or JRod and Mayuka or Tad Lee to bring the essential ingredient of pace.

He has had reasonable game time and doesn't seemed to have grabbed his opportunity. If I was Mayuka I'd be a bit miffed.

I understand what you're saying and, as I said, I think he had the attitude and talent when he arrived. I just worry that his head's down now (perhaps he was expecting to adapt a bit quicker than he was able to, I don't know) He hasn't looked like he's enjoying it; that's the worry for me.

Hopefully he'll be able to lift himself mentally and get back to showing us the talent he quite clearly has.
I'm curious as to where Jay figures in Nigel's plans. If you're right & he has become despondent, we'll lose money on him. As you say, hopefully he'll be able to lift himself.
To me he's the Lambert replacement be in through injury or in the 75th minute when he tires. I don't think he was bought for the development squad, I think he was bought for the main squad which is a Prem squad.

If we play two upfront I'd expect to see Lambert or JRod and Mayuka or Tad Lee to bring the essential ingredient of pace.

i think he'll come good , i really do . (j rod that is)
I hope so,he's obviously got the talent but if you parade as a £7m player the expectations are naturally high.

The proof of the pudding will be how many pay up for the pledges. It will have to be announced at some stage and that figure will tell you how many true Pompey fans there are. My guess is they are in danger of embarrassing themselves again only this time they won't be able to blame anyone else.

You can't provoke someone who isn't here. If they are here well they shouldn't be so it doesn't matter.

How can they boo the manager who they all wanted and hasn't been there 5 minutes? Appy left the day after being booed.

Anyone heard the gate yet? Has it dropped or are they holding firm at the magnificent 11000?

It's worse than that - if Shrewsbury or Scunthorpe could pull off a result, poor old Portsmouth would be in the relegation zone without being able to blame their ten point cheating fine. Poor little things.

For various reasons I need some cheering up right now Saints and Doncaster did it for me at the week end and hopefully my number one mid week team for Nov 10th to 16th , namely the Orient, will give me a boost to-night

Great to see all football debate on here to-day I have always thought we did well to get Cork and added to a much improved Spiderman our MF seems able to play forward or defend as required Cn't wait for Sunday

Not for us. If he was a centre half then maybe but our midfield is too strong for him to break in for a pointless season before retirement.

The QPR game showed how good we are going forward. They were poor so our frailties weren't tested. The Toons will test us, we need no silly mistakes which will be the first time this season if we do!

In my defence I felt that my comment was a public service announcement.

He lives in Spain and probably didn't even know that there was a game on.

He is also a Poopepeyep supporter and didn't understand that it was really really good fun. not something the bluefew know much about not having had much fun for the last few years, unlike us.
And of course it is well known that to be a bluefewer you have to be totally without humour.

What do you mean, “stick with” 442? We have ditched it recently and look much the better for it. Don’t think that you can start with 442 in the Premier League, certainly not with our back five. Playing with one up front, 4411 or 451 – however you like to read it – we look a much better balanced side and provide more cover down the flanks and in front of the back four. In Lambert’s absence, J Rod and perhaps Guly can play the up front role where the key requisites are ability to get on the end of crosses, hold the ball up and lay it off. Certainly not Mayuka (too small and not strong enough to hold it up with his back to goal) and probably not Lee (similar shortcomings but not so pronounced).

Ramirez is obviously the best in the hole but Lallana can play there too, as can probably the much improved Puncheon. But these two give us great attacking options on the flanks, going wide or cutting in. Morgan and Cork holding and box to box (alternating at times but prefer Morgan deeper) every time for me. Davis and JWP are strong replacements, however.
we were playing 4 4 3 for weeks ,far to narrow ,now we have cork back we can play with 2 in the middle .or all the other formations i agree with that .its the 4 3 3 i had issues with ,as nigel siad he wanted to play that ,to narrow for me exposing the flanks,partically the left

If they're smart they will do it well before March. But who knows if they are smart?

There are other teams on the South you already know, Seed, that could only dream of being rivals.

Eastleigh, H & W, Basingstoke, Gosport, Totton, Portsmouth, Ringwood, Andover.

Never heard of Romsey FC.....but CrawleyTown came out of no-where didn't they?

What do you mean, “stick with” 442? We have ditched it recently and look much the better for it. Don’t think that you can start with 442 in the Premier League, certainly not with our back five. Playing with one up front, 4411 or 451 – however you like to read it – we look a much better balanced side and provide more cover down the flanks and in front of the back four. In Lambert’s absence, J Rod and perhaps Guly can play the up front role where the key requisites are ability to get on the end of crosses, hold the ball up and lay it off. Certainly not Mayuka (too small and not strong enough to hold it up with his back to goal) and probably not Lee (similar shortcomings but not so pronounced).

Ramirez is obviously the best in the hole but Lallana can play there too, as can probably the much improved Puncheon. But these two give us great attacking options on the flanks, going wide or cutting in. Morgan and Cork holding and box to box (alternating at times but prefer Morgan deeper) every time for me. Davis and JWP are strong replacements, however.
we were playing 4 4 3 for weeks ,far to narrow ,now we have cork back we can play with 2 in the middle .or all the other formations i agree with that .its the 4 3 3 i had issues with ,as nigel siad he wanted to play that ,to narrow for me exposing the flanks,partically the left
443 equals too many players on the pitch but I get your point if you mean 433 being too narrow. Merrington's tiresome response was that we should go 442 - outdated and awful.

Things must be bad when censorship creeps in, but it is really not surprising that we attract silly skate WUMs on here, when their own site is being bombarded by so called Saints posters. I am not one for kicking people when they are down and I see no fun in this behaviour, I am all for rivalry and banter but some of these posters are over stepping the mark.

Yes, I agree games are getting too far apart, there is no continuity for the players, we have started to get our act together and are losing momentum through the gaps between games. Next week is slightly different with a Sunday / Wednesday combination, I just hope we can cash in and get those valuable points in the bag.

OK. As we are talking footy.

Fair point. I would take Bridge over Hreiderssan.
I would probably put Pahars slightly ahead of Boateng - but only slightly - as he did go to Milan straight after. Defoe's goal to game ratio at Pompey was 1 in 2 - so no comparison - and he he was an England regular during his time at Pompey.
I think Niemi was a good goalie, but even Hislop lasted 10 years at the top and was great at Newcastle. But Niemi was v good at Saints, so maybe he could make the bench.
Bale, Walcott and Oxy were all up and coming at your club before they left, but maybe Bale could edge Berger out - but only maybe - as Berger was class - but fading.
Sheringham had only just stopped playing for England when he came to Pompey - so Lambert is not getting a look in.

So, here we are. I am sure you will disagree though

James
De Zeeuw Campbell
Johnson Bridge
Diarra Muntari
Stone Taylor
Yakubu Defoe

Subs - Niemi, Distin, Bale, Pahars, Sheringham
Nice to see good footballing banter on this site for once. This is the team I'd pick in a 4-3-3 that might actually work;

Niemi

Svensson De Zeeuw Johnson Bridge

Mullins Taylor Bale

Pahars Lambert Defoe

Yep,

Don't actually mind a bit of footy banter.

I must be honest, I can't remember how good Svenson was at your club. Enlighten me

De zueew was voted Barnsleys greatest ever player, and was so inspirational at our club.

Campbell was still a full England international when he arrived and was the team leader - so Svensson would need to be rather good to displace him.

Mullins, I think you must be having a laugh. Diarra was sold for 22 million to Madrid. He ran our midfield, he was something else.

Jose Moreno wanted Muntari as soon as he got to Inter Milan. He was a left sided midfielder. Very difficult for Bale to get past him and Taylor at the level he was playing at for Saints. Admitted - he is an immense talent - but not the whole package at your club.

Yakubu is probably the strongest player I have ever seen in the Premiership. He was also incredibly quick when he first came to Fratton. He trailed only Thierry Henry in the Prem goal scoring charts for 4 years before he went to Everton , and was their record signing. I think Beattie has a fair bit to do yet.

Johnson was a right back - If I assume you are referring to Glen.

Very difficult for Bale to get past him and Taylor at the level he was playing at for Saints. Admitted - he is an immense talent - but not the whole package at your club. Yakubu is probably the strongest player I have ever seen in the Premiership. He was also incredibly quick when he first came to Fratton. He trailed only Thierry Henry in the Prem goal scoring charts for 4 years before he went to Everton , and was their record signing. I think Beattie has a fair bit to do yet. Johnson was a right back - If I assume you are referring to Glen.[/p][/quote]I meant Lambert has a bit to do. More Glory
