Osvaldo in fitness race to face Chelsea

Saints are hoping that Dani Osvaldo will be fit to return to action for tomorrow’s game against Chelsea after two weeks of being unable to train.

The club record signing picked up a knock at Newcastle which forced him out of contention for a while. After recovering he fell ill, which has subsequently laid him low.

It is frustrating for Saints who technically have the Italian available after appealing his violent conduct charge from the FA, which is expected to be adjudicated on before the FA Cup third-round clash with Burnley at the weekend.

With Kelvin Davis having returned to the Saints goal against Everton and Nathaniel Clyne coming on as a second-half sub, it seems that finally the injury backlog is starting to clear.

Mauricio Pochettino will also have Morgan Schneiderlin back for the Chelsea fixture after the midfielder served his one-game ban for picking up five bookings.

Everybody else has survived the new year cut off and can now rest easy with the next ban coming for ten yellow cards.

Pochettino reported: “Artur Boruc is out, Wanyama is out too and they are definitely both not playing. We will see the progress of Osvaldo. He picked up a knock against Newcastle and then an illness so he hasn’t been able to train for the last 15 days.

“Clyne is recovering and he featured yesterday (Sunday).”

When asked on what grounds Saints have appealed Osvaldo’s FA Charge he added: “If we want to defend our player it’s clear that we can.

“We believe our player deserves to be defended.”

Pochettino also cleared up why Kelvin Davis was skippering the side at Everton.

Though Davis is club captain, Adam Lallana normally wears the armband on matchdays.

“It was all just a nice gesture for Adam Lallana in forwarding the captaincy to Kelvin. There was nothing in it,” he said.

“Kelvin is the club captain but he is also a team captain, as is Jose Fonte, Rickie Lambert.

“Basically they all made the decision in the end but it was basically just a nice gesture from Adam to Kelvin.”

Saints are also hoping to get more out of Gaston Ramirez after the £12m man scored the equaliser at Goodison Park.

“Gaston scored an amazing goal and it was important for his confidence to get that playing time and that goal as well,” reflected Pochettino.

“He played over 30 minutes and I think he played very well and it’s only going to help to boost his confidence.”

Wow, 2 weeks out unable to train is going to be really hard for Osvaldo especially at the pace we play... Good too have him back though ... I see the Telegraph are reporting Man U are looking to table £20m for Shaw...they can dream!!

I’d expect Dani to come off the bench at best. Lampard is out and Ivanovic is doubtful for them.
They were lucky to take all the points against Liverpool with a certain penalty decision against the away team refused by the ref ..... sound familiar?

So far this week I've seen that Manure, Chelski and Spurs are all ' in the driving seat' to get Shaw. The boy just signed a 5 year deal, and stated how happy he is getting a game every week, with lads he has been playing together with since he was 7.. So, looking forward to lots of disappointed looks and ' Disbelief' from their fans when things don't go their own way! Press needs to start realizing that we're not a selling club unless WE decide we want to, and that our stated ambitions of being in Europe long term are not just talk.
I suppose that it's hard for the big team loving tabloids to swallow...

£20 million. Well that,s the downpayment sorted out. Then there will be £15million more if they win the league next year, and £15 million more after his first international appearance. Oh and we want a player added to that as well. That Van Persie looks decent. Otherwise p1ss off Manure.

If you are going to punish someone but then tell everyone else it's not that, it would sort of defeat the point. Who knows. I shall ask my neighbour Jesus.

You may be right but he will still have been punished. It's just not being put out there so the press can have a field day. And then again of course I may be completely wrong.

Osvaldo's impact this season has been minimal. Hope he's fit, but won't be holding my breath to see if he plays. I think he could be great, but so far he's in the 'could do better' box.
The player that has been so impressive recently has been Callum Chambers, with good work rate and crossing skills. Did well against top players at Everton. As good as Clyne, so a choice of who will play? Another great academy product.
Ward Prowse also has taken our corners and free kicks to a higher level.
Would also like to see more of Sam Gallagher, as he could prove to be another gem if he gets game time experience?

He may well not have been punished if the club feels nothing's been done to warrant punishment. Is it just possible that he's innocent?

Until the Echo change its system - that's what we will get.

Having been quite a few games from League One to the Premiership - the crowd has changed at the games.

More passion in League One and the Championship as the FIGHT was on to get back where we belong in the PREMIERSHIP.

WE MUST HAVE FIGHT AND PASSION TO BEAT MOURINHO AND CHELSEA.

Their fans will be their usual - throwing coins and lots of verbal abuse as they try and get on top. Does not apply if you are sitting in the Chapel or Kingsland where you are away from it all.

TIME TO UP OUR GAME. We are sitting ninth in the table and WINS against the so called Top sides can define our Season.

WE CAN BEAT CHELSEA. John Terry always seems to score in the air from a set piece or a corner. We must guard against this.

THIS GAME MEANS A LOT TO THE FANS IN THE PUBS AND IN TOWN..

I was thinking the same about Chambers... Im a big fan of Clyne but think those two will be pushing each other all the way .. great competition. Both have covered well at RB too which is a bonus

For me Clyne should get the nod against Chelsea

I think he could be great, but so far he's in the 'could do better' box. The player that has been so impressive recently has been Callum Chambers, with good work rate and crossing skills. Did well against top players at Everton. As good as Clyne, so a choice of who will play? Another great academy product. Ward Prowse also has taken our corners and free kicks to a higher level.

Yep that's true. We are never told the true reason for player absences. Still think it has to do with getting involved in the handbags.
If you are going to punish someone but then tell everyone else it's not that, it would sort of defeat the point. Who knows. I shall ask my neighbour Jesus.
Just keeping it internal I would imagine.. Public support and that
The injury was to his left hand or was it the right?

£20 million. Well that,s the downpayment sorted out. Then there will be £15million more if they win the league next year, and £15 million more after his first international appearance. Oh and we want a player added to that as well. That Van Persie looks decent. Otherwise p1ss off Manure.

Talking out of your backside, there has been no speculation that Osvaldo had a bust up with Poch, the speculation was that he had misbehaved at Newcastle, which drew a charge from the FA, NC is noted for his intolerance about any player who brings disrepute to the Club, he is also noted for his fairness in the way he deals with it, ask Jason Puncheon, Lee Barnard and Dan Seabourne.

It may be successful it may not be.

By appealing they delay the decision and now there is a chance that he will get a ban once fit again.

A very good point, well made, I sometimes think we are all guilty of reading between the lines, but that is what happens when you get no feedback from the Club itself. What happens within, stays within and I guess that is how they see it to be for the best. You can see why Poch is careful about saying anything in English, it gets corrupted by reporters grabbing at scraps.

again I can see seeds point but did the club know how bad the injury was when they appealed? also they might feel that Danni has a poor reputation already and having a disrepute charge on his record might influence refs, resulting in cheap yellow/red cards. if the club feel that Danni is innocent and they can prove it then why not fight it,

regards the thumbs down. we all know who the regular posters are and know that most of their posts are good and valid, by giving the posts thumbs down the fool is just proving they are good posts. they must have a sad and lonely life to log on and off and on again on here on new years eve just to load good posts with thumbs down.

happy new year to all saints fans around the world, 2014 will be the year that we really start to stuff it to the `big boys`.

A very good point, well made, I sometimes think we are all guilty of reading between the lines, but that is what happens when you get no feedback from the Club itself. What happens within, stays within and I guess that is how they see it to be for the best. You can see why Poch is careful about saying anything in English, it gets corrupted by reporters grabbing at scraps.
again I can see seeds point but did the club know how bad the injury was when they appealed? also they might feel that Danni has a poor reputation already and having a disrepute charge on his record might influence refs, resulting in cheap yellow/red cards. if the club feel that Danni is innocent and they can prove it then why not fight it,

regards the thumbs down. we all know who the regular posters are and know that most of their posts are good and valid, by giving the posts thumbs down the fool is just proving they are good posts. they must have a sad and lonely life to log on and off and on again on here on new years eve just to load good posts with thumbs down.

happy new year to all saints fans around the world, 2014 will be the year that we really start to stuff it to the `big boys`.
to all poopey fan 2014 will be the year your club leaves the football league for good, take your pick between relegation or administration and being kicked out!
Not good choices. Perhaps they could trade in something of value to get better choices? Oh, but they now only have five pots to p!ss in and nothing else. Happy days for us.....

Its hard being a Pompey fan only 1885 fans going to home games and starting in the Ryman league playing teams like Shirley fc " The temples" and Northam fc "The red stripes" with all our history wiped OUT and no Cups and Trophies and playing our games now at COWPLAIN at our new ground Rusty park . Life is so boring now the Great club who won 4 major trophies and playing teams like AC Milan . Well not worth getting up set just won the lottery we are moving back to Fratton and have 90 years to win major trophy pup.

Remember you nearly went bust if no one came in to buy you and pay off your debts were would you be and your fans didn't take the initiative to buy your club. Pompey wont go bust with 15000 + fans each home game or get relegated etc Live with it ! . Seed you spend to much time on the NEWS site I have not been here for months so lets leave it that way .

hello displaced fan happy new year
Div 2 is a total different ball game not a passing ball game , its a long ball game and physical , Richie Barker does know the ropes being promoted with BURY but Guy Whittingham unfamiliar territory hence failure.
here's a thought SAINTS with that point deduction in the first season did escape relegation but would you coped in div2 ? What crowds would you had being in div2 and would Saints Struggled ? I say yes .

So with so much support, how come you are fighting to stay out of relegation?[/p][/quote]hello displaced fan happy new year Div 2 is a total different ball game not a passing ball game , its a long ball game and physical , Richie Barker does know the ropes being promoted with BURY but Guy Whittingham unfamiliar territory hence failure. here's a thought SAINTS with that point deduction in the first season did escape relegation but would you coped in div2 ? What crowds would you had being in div2 and would Saints Struggled ? I say yes . bluewhiteandred

Happy new year SAINTS fans I know some of you want to win a major trophy that's good while others rather us go bust ! and get satisfaction from that ?
Remember you nearly went bust if no one came in to buy you and pay off your debts were would you be and your fans didn't take the initiative to buy your club. Pompey wont go bust with 15000 + fans each home game or get relegated etc Live with it ! . Seed you spend to much time on the NEWS site I have not been here for months so lets leave it that way .
I'm more interested in a long, long stay in the proper big league like our last time in the top flight, and getting a young, exciting and mostly British team being regulars in the top ten. That for me is a bigger achievement than winning a handful of games to get your hands on a cup, which can be as much luck as skill. As for your misfortunes, honestly couldn't care less BW&R. Always been our little neighbours during my 38 years, and doesn't look like changing any time soon. Happy New Year!

As far as Osvaldo playing today is concerned, with the heavy conditions of a saturated pitch, it will not suit his style, and if the injury was genuine it will cause problems, best to be cautious on this occasion methinks. Hope Rickie isn't getting distracted by the Transfer rumours..
