Why Jay Rodriguez is Mauricio Pochettino's top gun

Daily Echo: JAY RODRIGUEZ JAY RODRIGUEZ

Jay Rodriguez has emerged as Saints’ most potent goal threat under Mauricio Pochettino.

The £7m man has outgunned his England colleague Rickie Lambert since the Argentinian took charge almost a year ago.

Rodriguez was brought in by Nigel Adkins but has fitted into Pochettino’s style of play very naturally.

Under Adkins, the striker was averaging a goal every 5.15 Premier League games.

Under Pochettino, that statistic has changed dramatically with a goal every 2.63 games.

Lambert was bagging a goal on average every 1.91 games in the top flight under Adkins .

The England international’s ratio under Pochettino has risen to one every 3.18 matches.

While Lambert is averaging a goal every 292 minutes in the Premier this term, Rodriguez has struck on average every 189 minutes.

Pochettino’s high pressing style has undoubtedly suited Rodriguez, who found himself stuck out on the left in his early outings for Saints under Adkins.

The former Burnley man has far more freedom now in one of the three attacking midfield roles behind the main striker.

He has revealed that Pochettino has encouraged him to run at defenders as much as possible, and that has helped create goals for him and his teammates.

Rodriguez has also proved deadly in front of goal, and is the club’s leading Premier League scorer this season.

His strike at Newcastle took him to six for the season so far, which makes him the third highest English goalscorer in the top flight behind Daniel Sturridge and Wayne Rooney.

Rodriguez has already scored as many league goals in 13 starts and three sub appearances this term as he managed in 24 starts and 11 sub outings in 2012/13.

He only played the full 90 minutes in three of Saints’ first ten league games.

But since making his senior England international debut against Chile, he has only missed one minute of Saints’ last six games - and that was last Saturday when he came off for league debutant Sam Gallagher at Newcastle.

Lambert has banged in four goals this season, including two from the penalty spot.

He is being used far differently under Pochettino than he was under Adkins.

With Pochettino in charge, he remains a focal point - but is starting the high press whenever possible and linking up play with men running beyond him.

Under Adkins he was much more of a target man, and generally the furthest forward, who was trying to get in the box on the end of every cross.

It is impossible to argue with the results under Pochettino, who has brought the best out of the squad of players at his disposal.

Other multiple scorers for Saints in the league this season include club record signing Dani Osvaldo and skipper Adam Lallana who have both bagged three goals so far.

That equals Lallana’s tally for the whole of last season.

Good for JRod but in the fantasy league Rickie still has as many points this season due to more assists. They both suit their roles under Mo Po. I hope that Oz finds his feet but still not convinced. Steven Davis has upped his game and deserves a bit of credit too.

It is indeed a very good article, and sums up the situation at Southampton very well.

The question raised at the end is not whether we could lose MP, but what if NC was to go! It's a very good question.

I personally do not think NC will be tempted away to any Italian club just yet, and if that is the case I think we can safely bet that MC will remain too. NC has big ambitions at Saints, which he will want to realise. That's why (I realise it now!) he replaced Nigel Adkins with MP. NC saw the potential in MC to help him (NC) realise those ambitious plans, If indeed NC,along with MP, could get into the top four, or even win the league, then we would need to worry!

Neither NC or MP are quitters, and they will both want to achieve the very top prizes with Southampton. What better CV could either have, at taking a club from League 1 to the heights (even the top) of the Premier league, into Europe and even Champions league Once those ambitions are accomplished, then I would expect both NC and MP to think about moving on - but not before!!

I cannot conceive MP contemplating a move to Spurs - Southampton is en route to becoming a bigger club than Tottenham - why would he want to downgrade!?

I've said it before, and I say it again, I have been a very long term Saints supporter, and the long wait to see the current success has been well worth it - despite the stresses and grey hair along the way!

Well done NC and MP - we certainly do not want to lose either of you.

Enrique Rodriguez is a good player with pace and strength I do see him playing as a striker instead of Osvaldo. Still the beast at Saint is Lallana Skilled, he got the pace. Against Newcastle he change the game Lallana beast !

The stats speak for themselves.

We're netting 2.67 every 58.3 mins excluding 36.4 mins of dead ball time with 66% of the 2.67 going in 1.8 times within 43% of the first 38 minutes of the first half and 0.87 in the second 55% of the second half - excluding the 21% (ie 0.23) from free kicks and 14% (ie 13.4%) from corners plus or minus 0.07 or 3.7% for margin of error.

This means five out of every four goals have been missed and whilst 100% of the players have two legs, supporters have an average of only 1.988 legs - though this hides the fact that 28,361 supporters also have two legs and only 21 have only one or none. Nonetheless 3 out of every 4 supporters are still making up 75% of the total.

(Note: I appreciate that unless the supporter leg number is expressed to the degree of 19 decimal points you can work the number back to show that in total all our supporters have an average of more than two legs. My number did include the 19 decimal point calculation however and the average leg number of legs per supporter is indeed below 2.)

Yes, a very lucid explanation of essential facts Confucious. However, I have noticed that, on many a match day, Saints Supporters have no legs at all when leaving the local pubs .................... I think this stat needs to be factored into the overall statistical assessment you so clearly present.

To sum up: Saints will retain all their staff and players and should achieve every ambition as long as NC is at the helm. We only need to worry about keeping hold of him.

I have to agree.
It is highly unlikely any other owner would give NC the totally free hand and financial support he enjoys at Southampton, many fans of other teams assume he is our owner. Given his managerial style that has to suit him and be a big attraction to him so can't see him leaving any time soon. Hope so anyway!

Dani's been charged by the FA with violent conduct at the Newcastle match - and the Toon coach with 'improper conduct'. Disappointing. I hope MoPo can keep him in check!

It would explain why Cody Cropper had him (Dani) in a headlock in the pictures that were shown!

I think he has appeared on the NOT606 Forum, could be wrong but the posts are in the same vein and he is getting some stick for them too.

He's improving but does scuff some simple chances. You have to go along way to find a more natural finisher than Sir Rickie be it with head or feet with pace, delicate touch or set piece.
yes…yes indeed.
I see rickie as a ' no 10.. More of a creator, although can't argue with his goals albeit most in lower leagues. I just have a feeling there is more to come from j-rod and is a no 9.
Rickie is an excellent creator hence his all round game. I remember when Pards used him to take corners ffs!

Jay Rod has youth and pace on his side. If he can up his finishing to Rickie's level he will be a 20+ goal a season man.

A) You don't make the rules

B) You have a history of breaking rules - ask the Prem, the FL, the FA, local businesses and charities, ex players and last but not least HMRC. One more indiscretion and they'll have your sorry sad effort at a football club - assuming you've not facked it up yourselves by then of course.

WTFILN? :)

we may have a Christmas day armistice but that would be about it. if our brave men in the trenches could forgive the brutal merciless murdering germans for a few hours I`m sure we could not abuse your lot for the day, they even had time for a game of football together. now theres an idea how about a game? oh no wait your 4 leagues below us so that's not going to happen in all our lifetimes is it!
merry fishtmas. enjoy your relegation dogfight next year!

now, now seed I never said I`d like them for a day, oh no, in fact I just suggested that I might just might not abuse them for a day.
in fact I have had 2 friends over the years who were fish and they received abuse everyday, if not in person then via text or email, except Christmas day. even when they have been on holiday abroad I sent them a daily abusive text (at great expense to myself). I have even used ones kids poopey shirt as a doormat at a party at his house.
in my defence they both lived/live near me in the forest and I was/am trying to convert them. well that and one has a villa in florida and gives me cheap use of it!
