Adam Lallana

First published in Sport

Nigel Adkins has confirmed that Adam Lallana will miss the game with Arsenal.

As reported by the Daily Echo, the midfielder will sit out the festive schedule and beyond after damaging knee ligaments against Reading.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne is a doubt with a knee complaint that forced him to miss Saturday's 3-3 draw at Stoke.

Always a miss when not present but we have proved we can score without him. Let's get all over arsenal in the right areas, we need to make pitch small and smother them.
Bring back clyne and Ramirez, gazza in goal

Would agree on Clyne (if fit) & Ramirez.

Not sure about any of our keepers at the moment though!

When is the next transfer window due to open - feels like ages since the last one. Surely it can't be long.

Happy New Year football fans - even those down the M27 in desperate need of some good cheer!
Big test tomorrow - I guess would settle for a draw, but a win would be fantastic against our old boys!
Good-bye 2012 and a fantastic time to be a Saints fan regardless of where we sit in The Premier League - and here's to 2013 with hope to keep us up in The Premiership!
To all those people who regularly post on this forum - friends and foes - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

COME ON SOUTHAMPTON.

To the Pubs and then to the Terraces.

To Nigel - The Team - and the Fans.

WE FIGHT TO WIN.

arsenal have been beaten by Norwich and Chelsea and Bradford knocked them out of the Cup.

We were so close against manure and we have beaten them before at our place.

THERE IS NO FEAR AND NO SURRENDER.

No one cares about wenger or ex players.

RED ARMY. WE RULE THE SOUTH.
COYR.

Think we need to sign a replacement for Adam as sadly he continually takes a winter break from our team. Didn't he get injured this time last year?. I don't doubt for one minute its genuine but we need reliability and sadly due to Adam being to lightweight and not strong enough physically we need to spend to cover this position or for a novel idea why not try Lee unless Adkins has decided he wasted the clubs money by signing him

I think Lee is a great player who the Saints are sadly neglecting to use and I think they will regret it, he is a great player with lots to offer club.

On the point of a replacement for Adam, I think we should sign Siaka Tiene from PSG, he is not playing regularly, and is quite cheap. I think he would be a great signing either as a back-up or starting.

Lee came on a free, I'm not sure that any serious money was wasted.I also imagine that the reason that he isn't playing is because he might not that effective defensively.

its odd cos i would of had Lee, Hammond, and Sharpe about the squad as good back up. I liked Hammond as a fighter in midfield, we will never know if he would of cut it at this level.

Adkins makes some strange decisions what with Guly etc, 9 out of 10 times would be probably released to a league 1 side at best!

great cross the other day! but has he done anything else? lol

I can see 3 new signings in this Jan window, maybe 1 centre back, and a winger. and Hooper maybe?

we need another star striker. who already does the business somewhere, Berbatov type! im not keen on mayuka, he offered nothing in the last match.

Did these idiots who keep slating Guly see the stoke game? If you can't get behind the team stay away, although I'm guessing you already do.

Rising_son you are right to say no serious money was wasted in respect of a transfer fee but what about wages ?

In my opinion Adkins should clear out anyone he won't play ie De-Ridder, Lee,
