Fonte: We have plenty still to play for

Jose Fonte

Jose Fonte

First published in Sport

José Fonte has refuted suggestions that Saints do not have anything left to play for in the league this season.

The club remain ninth in the table after Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Stoke, well ahead of those teams below them, but also some way short of the European positions.

Fonte, however, does not subscribe to the argument that Saints have little to fight for now in the Premier League.

“No, we do,” he said, emphatically. “In our minds, we have to catch up Newcastle, we have to catch up Man United if we can, and finish as high as possible.

“People want to go to Brazil, people want to be in the plane to Brazil, so we have a lot to play for. Don’t get me wrong, we want to win every game.”

Fonte is one of those players who still harbours an ambition of making it to this summer’s World Cup.

“I do, yes,” he said.

The Portuguese defender has never been capped at senior level by his country, but he believes his form has been good enough to at least offer him some hope that there could be an opportunity.

Portugal host Cameroon in a friendly next month, and Fonte would love nothing more than a chance to prove himself to head coach Paulo Bento.

Asked if there had been any contact from the Portuguese FA, the 30-year-old said: “To be honest, no. But why not? Why can’t I dream about it?

“If I keep playing, and keep playing well, I hope I have a chance at least to prove myself.”

Fonte’s teammate, Morgan Schneiderlin, is in a similar position to him, with a France call-up yet to arrive, despite his excellent club form.

“I’m sure they are aware,” said Fonte, of the decision makers in both countries.

“In France’s case, I’m a little bit surprised, because Morgan has been fantastic; last season, this season he’s been amazing again.

“If he’s not in the team he should be knocking on the door, for sure.

“In my case, I’ve been performing this season well and I just have to hope that he will be reminded of me, so we will see.”

Fonte believes this season has been the best he has ever produced, and he puts that down to the arrival of the manager, Mauricio Pochettino, who was a centre-half for Argentina in his playing days.

“Yes, definitely (this is my best ever season),” said Fonte, who has formed a particularly commanding partnership with Dejan Lovren at the heart of defence this term.

“I think since the manager came, since Mauricio took over, he made me a better player. That’s the truth.

“He made me a better player and I feel good, I feel confident. Physically, I’m in the best shape of my life, so I feel like this has been my best season so far.

“He gives a lot of emphasis to the defensive line. Tactically he’s very, very good.

“He gives you a lot of advice in terms of positioning, in terms of aggressivity, anticipation, interceptions, play, be brave, and he gives you the confidence to go on the pitch and give everything for him.”

Reflecting on Saturday’s draw at St Mary’s, Fonte admitted there was a lot of disappointment in the camp at the result.

“We gave away two goals cheaply and, in these kind of games, that we’re not at our best, when we are in winning positions we cannot concede goals like this, so it’s disappointing,” he said.

Deep down I think many of us thought we could catch United a worthy aim in itself...the Stoke result has put the kybosh on it I fear...we all know that victory would see us within 2 points of mufco and last game of season at St Mary's...

Really wanted that scalp.

We cannot win them all. ask Man City and Man Utd and Arsenal how they got on this weekend. And how much their teams cost. Still thinks we need someone who can unlock the defenses when they come and park the bus in front of goal as Stoke did in the second half. But still enjoyed the game.

There is actually quite a lot to play for in money terms. There is a fixed amount of £22.5 million for each side plus £32million for overseas rights, plus £3millon for MOTD.After that comes prize money for league position which is around £1million for the bottom side up to £22million for winning. In addition to that the bottom 10 sides get £7.3milon TV rights and it rises around£2.5million for each league position above that.So finising top 10 is very impotant. The botom club gets £63million and the top aound £99million. Winnng the fa cup is worth aound £3million in total if all rounds are taken into account. So finishing 17th in the EPL is worth more than winning it. Don't tell the skunts.

The Stoke support was awful considering they are a midlands club. They didn't have many more than Blunderland brought down. The rest of the ground was pretty much full as far as I could see. There is bound to be a bit less interest in paying out good money to watch a bunch of cloggers playing for a draw, especially when the weather is awful as well.

Both Morgan and Jose suffer from the problem that their national squads are well covered in their respective positions. However, Morgan in particular and Jose to some extent could yet find their way into contention if they keep playing well and manage to get picked for a friendly or two. Injuries to other players could also open a door.

How many Saints players (when at Saints) have played at the WC? Paine, Mills(?), Keegan, Shilton, Wright, Anders Svensson, Gus Delgado. Not many others that I remember.

This year ....... just maybe ....... Dejan, Jose, Yos, Luke, Nat, Callum, Morgan, Jack, Gaston, Jay, Adam, Rickie ...... oh, and, um, dare I say it, Dani.

My research shows the attendance was 27,987. Stoke's p!ss poor turnout was 1607 short of the norm which left us 406 light overall. Of these 213 were affected by floods in the Forest, 67 had bad colds, 43 were in a broken down bus at Wimborne, 78 owned cr@p Ford Fiestas which broke down, 1 had a terrible row with his missus and she hit him with a brick, 2 had runs from Turkish kebabs on Friday night and 1 went to A&E after catching his willy in his zip. That accounts for 405.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to track down the other absentee, but I'm still working on it.

I had a deliberate good look around. There were a few seats behind the Chapel goal and a slightly bigger void at the back of the Chapel, maybe a couple of hundred in total. Then there was the empty away end, masses of empty seats. I suppose the division of the concourses makes it hard to reallocate them.

I know what you mean but we did unlock them - twice. For me the reason we didn't win at home to Stoke was conceding two very poor goals rather than not scoring enough. Two at home should win the match.

Good work, Confucious but I make it that you're still 2,769 short of the 32,363 capacity that Wiki tells me can fit into St Mary's.

However, it turns out that the combined population of Tebourba Way in Shirley and Tebourba Drive in Gosport is 2,768, so that would account for it because our beloved Tebourba and his lucky neighbours and namesakes have all been boycotting matches in protest at NC. With NC gone, they've bought a whole block for the Liverpool sell out.
