Saints goalkeeper Artur Boruc to miss several weeks with a broken hand

Daily Echo: Artur Boruc collides with the post in the build-up to Chelsea's equaliser Artur Boruc collides with the post in the build-up to Chelsea's equaliser

Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Artur Boruc will be missing for “some weeks” with a broken hand, while the Saints boss also revealed that Morgan Schneiderlin is out of tomorrow’s game against Aston Villa.

Boruc sustained his injury after colliding with the post during the build-up to Chelsea’s equalising goal in Sunday’s match at Stamford Bridge, which the Blues won 3-1.

After the fixture, he was taken to hospital for x-rays, with the scans revealing that he had sustained a fracture in his hand.

With back-up Kelvin Davis also out injured, Paulo Gazzaniga replaced him, and the 21-year-old is set to continue in goal tomorrow night, as Villa visit St Mary’s.

“Artur has an injury in his hand and it’s difficult to know right now exactly how many weeks he is going to be out, but we do know he is going to be out for some weeks,” said Pochettino, who also lost Schneiderlin to a groin injury at Chelsea.

“Morgan as well has a problem, he won’t be fit tomorrow and, overall, we have a few players that are not going to be fit for tomorrow’s game.”

Those other players include Gaston Ramirez, Danny Fox and Guly do Prado, who will all be absent.

There's been a lot of debating recently about whether we have sufficient strength in depth to sustain our challenge for the top.
I think we'll be able to settle the argument in a month time!!

Georgio Petkov the Bulgarian keeper and Bogdan Labont, the Romanian keeper will both be available when the EU border is opened there in three weeks.

Of course, the broader political issue for the UK as a whole is that the feared flood of Bulgarian and Romanian immigrants will threaten the jobs of all our Poles.

I smell a rat here. First we have the apparent c0ck up in the Arsenal game. This failed to get him dropped. Now it appears that a fairly light contact with a post whilst wearing thick gloves had resulted in a broken bone. Come on Artur. If you want Christmas off just tell us straight.

I know you have and it's tedious to the point of nausea, now you are listening to wHispers, yes we all want three points and it will be crucial to see how we will perform without some of our leading lights, to the majority of us that is obvious. The best we can do is to get behind whichever XI Poch choses to select, no weakening now, leave you worries behind, the Season starts tomorrow. COYRS 3 Points are essential if only to keep the whingers away.

PS Don't take me too seriously I am only teasing.

Well at least we won't have to worry about the Ukrainians, if the Ukraine decides to get closer to Russia. Always assuming Russia doesn't apply to join the EC as well. But with the PM getting closer to China, perhaps we can get special dispensation to sign a Chinese keeper in exchange for a Range Rover and a Roller.

Perhaps not. Something tells me a Chinese goalkeeper may not be the best idea in the world. I think your idea is best Confucious, stay with the Bulgarians and the Romanians. After all, if you couldn't come up with the idea to sign a Chinese 'keeper, then I'm obviously wasting my time suggesting it.

So, when Boruc is approaching fitness, will he be allowed to wear a fibreglass/plastic protector over his hand, as so many outfield players have been allowed to use for protecting facial injuries? Or would the rigidity of a "cast" of some sort be considered an advantage, when shot stopping?

Ponch publicly said we would not be strengthening in January apparently according to several papers.

Think its a good job we have points on the board. Man City, Newcastle and Everton all before Christmas. I think Buroc does make a big difference at the back despite his antics. He is not scared to shout and organise. Wonder if we can get a keeper on emergency loan with two out. Though i think the next few games will decide whether Gass has a future at the club or not.

Would not mind seeing young Reid get a game, though think its more likely to be S Davis. Though Cork also deserves a run out.

Big learning curve coming up.

There is a very good Chinese Goalkeeper called Zeng Cheng, he is 26 years old and 6ft 2 inches. Not your average Chinese short of stature typecast.

Saints are subject to Premier League Rules not Football League - loans are covered by Rules V.5 to V.10. It looks as if an application can be made and it is a matter for the PL Board. I seem to recall Saints did make an emergency loan signing a few seasons ago when KD was injured - we signed Kasey Keller (?).

The only possibility I know of is Ching Bing Bang of Shenzen, but over here people would just laugh at his name.

It's fine in China because lots of people there have names just like that. Few people know this but, to name a child in a 'lucky' way, what most Chinese parents do is chuck a load of pots and pans down stairs and then name the kid after the noise it makes.

We don't need an emergency loan. We've got Gazza and we can stick Cropper on the bench. We'll be too good for Villa tomorrow and I reckon we can sneak a point against a very, very in-form City. Four points from the next two would get us right back on track.

Believe.

Saints have wanted to promote youth into the first team whenever possible and now we have the chance to get our young keepers a run in the first team. We need to stay positive because this is going to be great exposure and experience for them! I'm more concerned about Spider...but I'm sure that Cork will step up or Davis. Nothing less than 3 points against Villa will do...is this how pressure can start to creep in?!

we always need to look at the over-arching plan. This is what Cortese does.

We think we can finish top 8 right? so need around 60 points. the games came in 4 distinct pots

Pot 1. First 11 games - get a good start. Need 20 points. got 22
Pot 2. Next 9 games - Stinkers. Really hard games. Consolidate. Need to get to 30. Have 7 games to get to 30
Pot 3. Next 10. easier again - kick on. Get to 50 points if we can
Pot 4. Last 8. Difficult and end of season - keep going. Get to 60 points

If you measure in blocks, dissapoinments like the last two dont really matter. we were 5/1 and 6/1 in a two horse race. Chelsea at home is the end of pot 2. lets see then

Similar to the Rink Tink Chink of happy (onomatopoeic) glasses when we celebrate Xmas and New Year in a few weeks time. But despite the sound it will not, of course, be the Chinese new year, which will follow on the 31/01/2014. 2014 will be the year of the Boruc and Artur will be fit again.

not as bad as it sounds, Gazza is a more than capable replacement, nothing he could have done about Terry's header and the defence should have dealt with Ba's goal, he possibly could have gotten down quicker but he would have been expecting the ball to be cut out before it got even to Ba, easy mistake to make and he'll learn from that and as he gains experience the defence will believe in him more and more. Besides, anyone notice how not one of his kicks went to a Chelsea player or out of play? In that way he's miles ahead of Boruc

Boruc is an excellent keeper. His distribution with his hands is about the best I've seen. His kicking is woeful.

Lack of depth is a fact.... well we are going to find out tomorrow tonight, how well we are going to do without Boruc, Morgan, and whether we have recovered in time for tomorrow's fixture?... and our top XI players wont be too tired for the game? and what changes MoPo is going to make?....

i am sure Aston Villa are thinking what a better time to play the saints....probably licking their lips.....

All these questions will be answered tomorrow...


we have lost two battles but NOT the war... the war still on......

COYR's lets show them that we arent dead and burried....
we always need to look at the over-arching plan. This is what Cortese does.

We think we can finish top 8 right? so need around 60 points. the games came in 4 distinct pots

Pot 1. First 11 games - get a good start. Need 20 points. got 22
Pot 2. Next 9 games - Stinkers. Really hard games. Consolidate. Need to get to 30. Have 7 games to get to 30
Pot 3. Next 10. easier again - kick on. Get to 50 points if we can
Pot 4. Last 8. Difficult and end of season - keep going. Get to 60 points

If you measure in blocks, dissapoinments like the last two dont really matter. we were 5/1 and 6/1 in a two horse race. Chelsea at home is the end of pot 2. lets see then
Well you right I support......any positive thinking is always welcome...Lets hope so, like you said away games not always the easy ones....

we need to bounce back......a win tomorrow will be good for the morale...

I can't believe our good fortune that Guly, Ramirez, Kelvin and Fox are all out injured, means we will have to struggle on with our best team again and hope we can scrape something against the Villa. Obviously it would have been better to have Morgan and Artur available but I think Davies and Gazza are able replacements. COYR's.

its even more amazing that those who have no sense of humour are not regular posters and use their infrequent posts to aim abuse at those of us who try to have a laugh. try posting support for the team not just one word abusive comments.

Some people seem to struggle with irony. As I get older, my senses (including my hearing) are starting to sag a bit. So, the other day, in conversation with my wife, I told her that she was the most wonderful, most beautiful and most hard-working woman in the world - EVER!!!! My bad, I thought she had said, 'If you're looking for a way to be useful, why not do some irony.'

Well at least we won't have to worry about the Ukrainians, if the Ukraine decides to get closer to Russia. Always assuming Russia doesn't apply to join the EC as well. But with the PM getting closer to China, perhaps we can get special dispensation to sign a Chinese keeper in exchange for a Range Rover and a Roller.

Perhaps not. Something tells me a Chinese goalkeeper may not be the best idea in the world. I think your idea is best Confucious, stay with the Bulgarians and the Romanians. After all, if you couldn't come up with the idea to sign a Chinese 'keeper, then I'm obviously wasting my time suggesting it.
The only possibility I know of is Ching Bing Bang of Shenzen, but over here people would just laugh at his name.

It's fine in China because lots of people there have names just like that. Few people know this but, to name a child in a 'lucky' way, what most Chinese parents do is chuck a load of pots and pans down stairs and then name the kid after the noise it makes.
Sounds like a good prospect. Is he a pretty boy? If so I have just the song for him-
Hey you pretty ching bing bang
pretty ching bing bang we love you etc etc

ending with bing bang pretty ching bing bang
our fine ten fingered friend etc

The Northam is ready.
