Saints beat Yeovil 2-0 in the FA Cup fourth round yesterday

First published in Sport

SAINTS have been drawn away to Sunderland in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

It will be the third time this season Mauricio Pochettino's men have travelled to the Stadium of Light.

Saints fielded a below strength side and lost 2-1 in the Capital One Cup back in November, with the Black Cats having since gone on to reach Wembley in that competition.

Saints also drew 2-2 at Sunderland earlier this month, taking an early 2-0 lead in a game where Gaston Ramirez and Dejan Lovren were both stretchered off with ankle injuries.

While Saints were beating Championship strugglers Yeovil 2-0 in the fourth round yesterday, Gus Poyet's Sunderland were edging past non leaguers Kidderminster 1-0.

5th rd draw: Manchester City v Chelsea, Sheffield United or Fulham v Nottingham Forest or Preston, Arsenal v Liverpool, Brighton v Hull City, Cardiff City v Wigan, Sheffield Wednesday v Charlton, Sunderland v Saints, Everton v Swansea.

A rather uninspiring draw for us. I expect Sunderland will field a weaker team though so a good opportunity to turn up with our first team and win.

It's certainly not easy but there were far tougher teams in that draw and we avoided them. Sunderland have a relegation battle on their hands and that's their main priority because of the money involved, and they've got a cup final as well so can't see them going all out for this one. If we want it we will need to field a very strong side.

Tough for the travelling fans (Yorkie, Beer Monster etc. aside), but I think this is a great draw. In our last 3 matches against them, they have used up all their good luck.

What's more, as Little Hitler says, unlike us, they'll need to hold back for their league dog fight. We can field our best available 11 and go for it.

Also, the media will be salivating over the two BIG ties, so we can go about it without any media attention.

Oh, and if there's a replay, I should be over for it.

This is our year.

The players will be well up for this one having been pegged back in the league by them twice and after the league cup exit. I reckon it'll be a close match but a Sam Gallagher hatrick could make all the difference.

I hoping that the recent dramas might calm down and that the players have a bit of fire in their bellies to give us a strong finish to the season. A signing might give us a boost before the window shuts...

Big game coming up on Tues, a draw or dare I say win could be a good springboard from here.

AGREED.

MUST BE A STRONG SIDE .. to progress.

Perez may consider yesterday a Strong side - impressed with Sam - but they need the big guns to dispatch Sunderland Away.

Need the Fans to turn up too. OUR AWAY FANS ARE MAGNIFICENT.

Yesterday with everyone out of position - our chanting was underwhelming. We even had Yeovil chanting - who are ya - that said after the second goal the Northam and Itchen had all our fans dishing it out.

IT WOULD BE FANTASTIC TO GET A RESULT AND WIN AGAINST ARSENAL AND GET OUR FANS BACK TO OUR NOISY BEST.

Credit to the large attendance yesterday.

WE DON'T LIKE WET SPAM AND AWAY TICKETS GO ON SALE V. SOON.

WE ARE THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

I just hope we go there put out our strongest team and really go for it. With the top four all drawn against each other we could potentially get a relatively easy draw in the quarters, and then it's a day out at Wembley for the semis. I wouldn't have thought Sunderland will be too bothered about the game with a relegation battle and on their hands, as well as a cup final in the Capital One cup meaning that they've already qualified for Europe!

You can say just as much as you like,

However, it's gone and past. In the 42 years I having been watching football, I know that you win some decisions, you lose some.

Last game, we should have buried them in the 1st half. 2nd half goal back, we were lucky to come away with a point. Point blame, I suppose we should blame the team.

Personally I didn't there was much wrong with the Wes Brown tackle. He got the ball and I don't think he intended to catch Gaston like he did as he followed through. It was just really bad luck on Gaston's part, especially as he'd just put in one of his gutsiest runs in a Saints shirt to get into that position.

So I don't want us to go in all fired up with talk of revenge - I want us to be clinical and professional and win. There will still be some very beatable teams in round six and only two or three of the big boys left. It's opening up nicely for us.

Btw will Jesus be in charge or does MoPo now take over? I'm hoping it's the latter. (No offence to Jesus, like.)

I`ve picked a team to play sunderland already, I have taken into account their management, players, style of play and previous encounters.
gk. Boruc
rb dodd
cb razor
cb fonte
lb dennis (psycho)
cm case
cm wanyama
cm hurlock
lw j-rod
cf lambo
rw big sam

subs
budgie
lalla
shearer
spider
hoover
cockerill
benali
reed

I have dropped some players, to keep them away from the hooligan tactics and players. I have also had to bring some players out of retirement. I feel though that this team may be able to give us an edge, after all I`d like to see them try their usual tactics against those players, after all `if you mess with terry Hurlock then you`ll never walk again`.
any thoughts? ;0)

C'mon peoples - Saints used to be renowned for our fair play. Now's the time for it again. Wes Brown couldn't help but follow through on that tackle. He got the ball first and it was just bad luck Gaston's ankle got hit. I saw the replay several times and from a couple of angles - if that was a Saints defender we'd have all been saying what a great tackle but it's a shame about the other lads injury. Wes Brown can put it about and ain't shy when it comes to tackling but he doesn't have a reputation for clogging. Bad accident but that's all it was - an accident. Best thing we can do is to put 3 past the Mackems, wish 'em luck with their relegation problems and move on to a nice home tie with Chelsea and knock them out too.

I have mixed feelings about it. I don't think he intended to take out Gaston and certainly didn't intend to injure him. However, it was rash and was always likely to be dangerous - and therefore getting the ball makes no difference.

agree slugger, but how many posts did we see on here about how he makes so many mistakes or cant pass for toffee or even cork much better wanyama was a waste of money and should dropped.
Big Vic has been instrumental this season and whilst he does have faults we are a much better team with him than without, and there is no disrespect to cork in that. I think we have 3 of the best holding midfielders in the league with more coming through like reed.

I think your right.
"The winners qualify for the UEFA Europa League, unless they have qualified for the Champions League through their league position, in which case the Europa League berth goes to the highest-placed team from the Premier League not already qualified for Europe"
source Wikipedia.
the league cup final is only 2 weeks after our 5th rd game. the players wont want to get sent off or injured with so little time between the games. they might even rest some of their more important players, I think they have some. we will go to beat any team they put out and beat them in style.

Amen to this - since living in Scotland, East Coast trains + Southern railway have invariably been my chosen methods of travelling down south, often for as little as £25 each way when booked far enough in advance.

A trip down to Sunderland is £10 each way, so I've already lodged a pass with the missus for this one :o)

League Cup winners qualify for next season's Europa League, unless they have already qualified for the Champions League.
In this case, League Cup runners-up are NOT eligible for a Europa League place, the Europa League place goes to the next best placed League spot (6th place in the case of the English League).

For the FA Cup, the winners qualify for next season's Europa League, unless they have already qualified for the Champions League.
In this case, the runners-up will qualify for the Europa League, unless they, too, have already qualified for the Champions League.
In that case, the Europa League place goes to the next best placed League spot.

This situation occurred in 2006/07, when Chelsea and Manchester United contested the FA Cup Final, both already having qualified for the Champions League, and Chelsea won the League Cup.
Then the 5th, 6th, and 7th placed League teams (Spurs, Everton, and Bolton), all qualified for the (then) UEFA Cup.

Please note that the loophole allowing FA Cup runners-up to qualify for Europe will close from the 2015/16 season, ie the 2015 FA Cup runners-up will be the last team to qualify for the Europa League if the winners are already in the Champions League.
UEFA is closing the loophole to state that League and FA Cup WINNERS ONLY are eligible for the Europa League place.

Lets hope we put out our strongest team, 21 thousand Saints fansfrom saturday plus the fans who go to Sunderland deserve this at least.
We can win the cup if we put our minds to it, our league position is nearly secure so lets try and win a trophy.

Agree we need to play our best team this time round. I think Man City have shown a refreshing policy of putting out strong teams in every competition and, though their squad depth is clearly very strong, other teams should be following suit.
Besides, the facts suggest that resting players makes absolutely zero difference to their chances of injury: Moyes has dropped Van Persie and Rooney from the entire squad for certain games but they've still ended up on the side lines for long periods.
Sunderland should I hope have their minds elsewhere (cup final and relegation fight) and are playing Man City away on the Wednesday while we play Hull on the Tuesday, so we should be fresher.
I think we need to go out and give this 100% as the draw is opening up very nicely indeed. When you get the luck (as we did when we last reached the final) you have to take it as there will be plenty of years when we get Man City away in the third round.

Do not know why but I told the wife that we would be drawn away to Sunnerland even before playing Yeovil…..

..for once this season can we batter them with goals rather than shots on target, off target, corners and 8loody fruitless possession...
