Tadanari Lee to make Premier League bow?

Tadanari Lee to make Premier League bow?

First published in Sport

Forgotten man Tadanari Lee is hoping to stake a claim to replace Adam Lallana in the Saints team.

The Japanese striker has yet to feature in the Premier League after a promising start to his Saints career was halted in its tracks by injury.

Lee has been trying to prove his fitness and form as an overage player in the under-21s and is hoping for another chance to do exactly that tonight as Saints take on Newcastle in the first game to be played by the team at the Silverlake Stadium since a tie up with Eastleigh.

The 26-year-old arrived to quite a fanfare when he signed almost a year ago and enjoyed a decent start as he settled into life at the club, scoring a memorable goal against Derby.

However, injury problems have never been too far away for Lee who has figured just twice this season.

Both of those games have been in the Capital One Cup, with a goal in the comfortable 4-1 win at Stevenage and 67 minutes in the defeat at Leeds.

The knee ligament injury to Lallana, which is likely to rule him out for at least the Christmas and New Year fixtures, has opened the door to a number of Saints’ fringe players to step forward and try and grab themselves a spot in what has been a settled, and successful, side of late.

Being left footed and an energetic presence Lee could slot into the role filled by Lallana but he has serious competition to fend off.

Jay Rodriguez has also played there while Gaston Ramirez and Jason Puncheon are also both comfortable in that position, which could open the door for the likes of Emmanuel Mayuka and Guly do Prado who have had to settle for spots on the bench.

And that is assuming that Adkins keeps the same formation without Lallana’s considerable presence.

The game at Eastleigh this evening could also see the likes of Richard Chaplow, Frazer Richardson and Danny Fox getting a run out, while Artur Boruc could feature in goal.

Saints are allowed to field three over-age players in their under-21s side.

Saints’ under-21s are battling for a place in the Elite Group Stage of the Professional Development League and will play more home games at the Silverlake after Christmas.

Gotta watch who does get into the Team.

Lose the ball 3/4 up the pitch and a counter attacking side can punish you.

If I remember correctly Ben Reeves came on as a Sub one game and the side seemed weaker on that side. He did not impose itself that day.

Tad. Lee also did not over impress in the last U-21 - but then he needs the quality around him to shine.

Gaston came on for Lallana last game and the play making actually improved.

The good news is that with J-Rod as well - Nigel has options.

The fans are pumped up for Sunderland and Fulham and WE WANT THE WINS.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

All the players in the squad are looking how they could fit in with Adam out.
Guly is up there with a good shout because of his energy and desire.
If the "fans" boo him it will be heard by the other players too. Remember Jose's reaction?
Do that again and do not be surprised if players decide to leave!
Yes they all heard it and none of them liked it!
Individual comments do not get seen, but the general impression is known throughout the squad.
Another poster on another thread spoke about a knockabout with Clyne on Millbrook Rec and said he was an ordinary bloke. They all are, they just happen to be brilliant at football.
Support whatever players the manager chooses and hope he knows what he is doing. Probably got a better idea than any of us, he works with the players on a daily basis

Definitely believe in Tadanari Lee to make the most difference, he is like Ryo Miyaichi for Arsenal, but with a far superior shot, he has been the highest scoring player for Saints in the last few U-21 matches and out of all of them, I definitely think he has shined, especially with his deadly spotkicks.

Costa Baz says...

Moving Puncheon to the left would be my last option, simply because he and Clyne are working well together and we don't know if he and Shaw would work as well.

Keep the right side strong, and just worry about filling one position.

I thought Lee's movement and link up play, last season, were quite good, so I'd like to see him given a chance.

He is also more of a goal threat, in open play, than Fox or Reeves, IMO, although they could both do a job there.

Could be decided by who plays down the right for Sunderland ... Adam Johnson (?), which may lead Adkins to give Shaw more protection.

Squad rotation is obviously going to play a part,and Guly will figure in that so should be embraced as any player who pulls on the shirt should be.
Tad lee will hack it at this level but as with all players that remain mostly unused he will need to be cut a bit of slack.
personally I think he is a great player and will give 100%,as would Mayuka given the chance. Be great to see them paired up in a 4-4-2 with ramirez in the hole.
NA.s decision to play with effectively two holding midfielders was a masterstroke but we seem to sacrifice some width at times as a result.
Perhaps if a dominant CB comes in one of them can be freed up,to give us even more options.
Sir Ricky will be rested at some point,that will cause some to bite their nails,but it will happen.
Exciting times ,a great squad ,and only going to get better.

Good post yet there is a concentration on the negative in life generally. Folks made a thing about the booing Guly do Prado recently. I was there and from the chapel gained the impression that the booing was aimed at the player being spoken to by the ref.
There also is the knowledge that on a bad day he can make unforced errors And on a good day he can be sublime. The nervousness is understandable.

So what exactly has the guy done wrong on a football pitch?

His effort is good, he can be a decent passer, he's not the best finisher, but neither is Puncheon or Lallana. I think the drink driving stuff got to him and he is paying his penalty for that. The guy needs to be supported like Puncheon has been. Even at the peak of his dispute he was not booed when he turned out for us.

Fans who actually financially support the saints have the right to do as they please IMO and i for one will boo Fox on to the pitch, he's a defender that can't defend... work that one out. Coincidence that we've stopped leaking goals since he's been out of the team... i think not.

On the otherhand, not got a problem with Guly, harshly criticised, scored alot of vital goals last year and seems to be a confidence/luxury player, looks sharp at the moment and looks alot better than J-Rod.

Rant over, 3 points Saturday please, 3 -1 Guly first goal and a Lambert brace. Heard it here first.
A true fan would never boo one of his own players, no matter how bad he is perceived to be, It serves no purpose other than satisfying the persons ego,

Why cant they get Papa Waigo back from Ascoli, sign him up. He's still only 28.
Joking aside i would have Waigo over Guly any day of the week
If someone had explained the off side rule to Papa Wiago he would have been even more effective than he was. Loved his unpredictability and the guy really wanted to stay.
