Defeat means nothing to Cork after J-Rod injury

Saints midfielder Jack Cork was left devastated for Jay Rodriguez and fearing that his teammate could be out for months after seeing him suffer a horrible-looking knee injury at Manchester City.

A clear indication of how long the forward will be sidelined is hoped to arrive early this week.

But Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that the immediate signs did not look good, with the reaction of many of the players after the 4-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium suggesting they are also expecting bad news for the World Cup hopeful.

“That’s the worst part of the day,” said Cork, who feared Rodriguez’s absence would extend into “months rather than weeks”.

“It’s horrible seeing your close friend who’s doing so well, and got such a great chance of going to the World Cup, get a bad injury like that, and I just hope his recovery goes well.

“I’ve seen him from Burnley to here and the way he’s developed, and I see how hard he works, and to just have it taken away from him like that is just horrible, and he’s so close to going to the World Cup.

“My thoughts are with him and all his family.”

Cork explained that the disappointment of losing to City paled into comparison with how everyone felt for Rodriguez, but Saints were nonetheless frustrated to have lost.

Having controlled much of the first half, the game changed when the hosts scored two goals in added time – the first of which was clearly offside – giving them a 3-1 lead at the break.

“We feel a little bit hard done by,” admitted Cork. “It’s disappointing. Some decisions changed the game and it was a bit out of our hands we felt.

“It was miles offside and, at that stage of the game, it’s horrible to have that happen.

“Against the bigger teams, things don’t really seem to go our way.

“We put in a great performance first half and to go 3-1 down was a bit strange.

“We went in at half-time and it just felt like there was nothing we could have done.

“No matter how well we played we couldn’t have changed it.”

I fear like everyone else does, JRod will be out for the rest of the season and any hopes of him going to the World Cup went when he got injured on Saturday, along with everyone I'm absolutely gutted for him, not so much for Saints because our season is effectively over, but for the lad himself, every player dreams of playing in the World Cup, his dream (this time around) I fear is shattered.

Gutted for Rodriquez. It looked a nasty landing on replays, and I just hope it's not as bad as it first appears. It would be awful for him to miss the world cup.

The linesman should have gone to SpecSavers....

jrod11 y don't you do one you skunt. Jack should also be in Woys plans as he has been a good consistent performer all season since he replaced Victor after his injury. It nice to see the way the team all look out for each other and hopefully the team spirit will convince them all to stay for the long term and not go to the chelskis, arsenils and manures. There is something very special developing here. Lets hope Jays injury is not as bad as we fear. STID

Corky is class and I prefer him to victor. Like everyone else I hope J-rod recovers quickly and doesn't miss the World Cup, I think his ticket is booked! Saints will definately miss his pace these last few games but it gives the others a chance to shine, life goes on.
Coyr's!

Big downer J Rod's injury. I watched it as it happened on live TV, but simply couldn't watch any of the numerous replays broadcast since. But there will be a better day for sure - and we'll see J shine in the Euros in just two years when he'll be better placed to be in the starting line-up.

Meanwhile, the lads need to keep on song as best as possible - as I'm sure they will. We may not be playing for crucial points, but we can still play a big part in determining who gets relegated and who makes the top four.

We all need to go into the closed season with hopes and spirits high for the next season - quite the opposite of the 'nothing to play for' malaise which has hit Newcastle fans hard.

And of course we all want to see Saints in Brazil and see our guys on best track for selection.

Saturday was gloomy all round, but the big picture is still bright and there's nothing more cheering right now than not being under relegation threat in that grim battle going on below us.

These boys will need a lot of rehabilitation to get their lives back on track, sounds like you will need considerably more .... good luck with that.

It is normal form for fans of any and every team to believe they do not get the rub of the green and often overlook decisions that went their way…

…we are no different however against the bigger teams there have been just too many incidents going against us for me to believe it is mere coincidence, many penalties at the start of the season were denied us….controversial decisions affecting our game in the latter part.

I firmly believe that the massive resistance to video replay is because certain powerful interests throughout the game will lose a slight decision making edge that is often the difference between winning and losing….

In the meantime I worry that our unique team spirit could be broken and players depart if deep down they believe (inc Mo Po) they are up against 'the system' as well as the opposition, certainly Spurs and City were to classic cases of the authorities doing us no favors.

Why don't we have a mass "report this post exercise. " . You are right that the Echo must know who he is as the log on requires an email address.

Saints fans, I've just read back through the posts to check my spelling (like others, I do that before I press send, but nobody spotss everything - i.e. ha;f), and I realised yet again a basic psychological truth (my wife' a psychologist, so I know this stuff) that people continue to act in a way that they believe gives them the things that they believe they want. Jrod11 wants the pleasure it gives him to read us respond ot his posts by calling him names. Whatever the reason behind that (low self-esteem, probably, a sh1t life certainly), he appears to have a desparate need to impress people that he doesn't fulfill through any positive way, by doing anything good and worthwhile, so he has to get it in a negative way, by doing something vile and offensive. He fulfills his basic psychological need by posting rubbish on here, and seeing u respond.

If we really want to hurt him, we should ignore him. No responses, no thumbs-down, nothing. I gauruntee you that the result will be that he will be sitting behind his keyboard in his pointless life, feeling invisible again. And I promise you this; that will hurt him much more than anything else we can do. By ignoring him, we would validate his inner belief that he is a pointless, worthless, friendless nonentity, and that will cause him more inner pain than anything else. It would actually hurt him more than the close attentions of a baseball bat, as that would just make him feel more important - that he wa relevant enough to be beaten.

If you really want to make him suffer for that remark, and I do, then do not respond in any way whatsoever to his posts. He will gradually get lonelier and more sad, and will eventually stop as being completely ignored in the only place in the world that he gets any recognition will cause him more inner torment than he can cope with.

The down this is that we will have to put up with him, but just remember that every time he posts and gets nothing, we hurt him in the place he is most vulnerable.

And this has to be from everyone; psychologists also know that the most effective means of encouraging a behaviour to persist is intermittent encouragement; the feeling that it's worth keeping doing something because every now and then it works. THink of kids crying for sweets.

The slogan shouldn't be "don't feed the troll"; it should be "hurt the troll by ignoring him".

And finally, all best wishes to Jay, and huge respect to the Man City fans for their reaction.

These boys will need a lot of rehabilitation to get their lives back on track, sounds like you will need considerably more .... good luck with that.
Well said. Also seen the McKinnon incident, sickening.
Sadly I've taken to JRod11 bait. Only because I want the Echo to ban this sickophant. Who's crossed the line. Too far JRod11 too far.

Hi Warrens, good to see you and Mrs Warrens on Saturday. Hope all is going well.

As for key decisions, it's not just against the 'big' teams, that we've been victimised; remember Sunderland? First, at SMS, 2 (maybe 3) penalties not given - Jose rammed in the back, Adam having his shirt tugged off his back and (some would say) Dani jumped on from behind at a corner + Jay's goal being disallowed. Up there, it was the 'tackle' by Brown that put Gaston out of action. Then there's Norwich away - Adam's shot charged down by hands raised well above the head. Then Spam - offside goal. The list goes on ....

I would love Saints to employ a former ref (who's the guy in Hartlepool who writes a funny blog?) to review all our league matches this season (and maybe last) and list all the controversial decisions - fouls, bookings, reds, penalties, goals etc.) How many have gone for us when they shouldn't have verses how many have gone against us etc. Send the report to the FA and the media as a way of 'helping the officials'. Praise the ones who got things right - such as when Oscar dived and got booked and 'help' the ones who didn't quite meet the high standards expected at this level.

Meanwhile - and more importantly - good luck to Jay. The entire football world (bar one 4rsehole) is with him and hoping he'll be okay soon.

I've been on many sites over the last few days and the support for Jay has been tremendous and heart warming from fans from all over the country inc Pool, Spuds, Citeh, Arsenal, Chelsea etc.
It's encouraging to know that real football fans of any persuasion recognise Jay's talent and sypathise deeply with the timing of his injury and all, without exception wish him a speedy recovery as, of course, I do myself.
It is with reservation that I post on this site, though, as frankly many of the comments on here have been embarrassing when you consider its a Saints fans site and I am loathed to be associated with them. The matchday thread in particular along with Jays injury thread being dominated by petty squabbling about Gazzaniga. Free speech and all that but it's incredibly arogant of those taking part to suppose that the rest of us want to waste time reading that cr@p. I agree with Corky. The match result, whilst disappointing pales into insignificance compared to Jays injury worries and we wish him all the best.

Hi Warrens, good to see you and Mrs Warrens on Saturday. Hope all is going well.

As for key decisions, it's not just against the 'big' teams, that we've been victimised; remember Sunderland? First, at SMS, 2 (maybe 3) penalties not given - Jose rammed in the back, Adam having his shirt tugged off his back and (some would say) Dani jumped on from behind at a corner + Jay's goal being disallowed. Up there, it was the 'tackle' by Brown that put Gaston out of action. Then there's Norwich away - Adam's shot charged down by hands raised well above the head. Then Spam - offside goal. The list goes on ....

I would love Saints to employ a former ref (who's the guy in Hartlepool who writes a funny blog?) to review all our league matches this season (and maybe last) and list all the controversial decisions - fouls, bookings, reds, penalties, goals etc.) How many have gone for us when they shouldn't have verses how many have gone against us etc. Send the report to the FA and the media as a way of 'helping the officials'. Praise the ones who got things right - such as when Oscar dived and got booked and 'help' the ones who didn't quite meet the high standards expected at this level.

Meanwhile - and more importantly - good luck to Jay. The entire football world (bar one 4rsehole) is with him and hoping he'll be okay soon.
nice to see you and the nippers Strass..we ended up in Manchester One after the game..then painkillers and alcohol sent me to bed!
No idea who's been thumbing you down, Warrens but it sounds like you had a deserved good night out, despite the pain ..........

........ NO, I'm not talking about the missus, I mean your arm ffs!

Have a safe flight home and catch up with you again sometime soon.

I firmly believe that the massive resistance to video replay is because certain powerful interests throughout the game will lose a slight decision making edge that is often the difference between winning and losing…. In the meantime I worry that our unique team spirit could be broken and players depart if deep down they believe (inc Mo Po) they are up against 'the system' as well as the opposition, certainly Spurs and City were to classic cases of the authorities doing us no favors.[/p][/quote]Hi Warrens, good to see you and Mrs Warrens on Saturday. Hope all is going well. As for key decisions, it's not just against the 'big' teams, that we've been victimised; remember Sunderland? First, at SMS, 2 (maybe 3) penalties not given - Jose rammed in the back, Adam having his shirt tugged off his back and (some would say) Dani jumped on from behind at a corner + Jay's goal being disallowed. Up there, it was the 'tackle' by Brown that put Gaston out of action. Then there's Norwich away - Adam's shot charged down by hands raised well above the head. Then Spam - offside goal. The list goes on .... I would love Saints to employ a former ref (who's the guy in Hartlepool who writes a funny blog?) to review all our league matches this season (and maybe last) and list all the controversial decisions - fouls, bookings, reds, penalties, goals etc.) How many have gone for us when they shouldn't have verses how many have gone against us etc. Send the report to the FA and the media as a way of 'helping the officials'. Praise the ones who got things right - such as when Oscar dived and got booked and 'help' the ones who didn't quite meet the high standards expected at this level. Meanwhile - and more importantly - good luck to Jay. The entire football world (bar one 4rsehole) is with him and hoping he'll be okay soon.[/p][/quote]nice to see you and the nippers Strass..we ended up in Manchester One after the game..then painkillers and alcohol sent me to bed![/p][/quote]No idea who's been thumbing you down, Warrens but it sounds like you had a deserved good night out, despite the pain .......... ........

It's encouraging to know that real football fans of any persuasion recognise Jay's talent and sypathise deeply with the timing of his injury and all, without exception wish him a speedy recovery as, of course, I do myself.
It is with reservation that I post on this site, though, as frankly many of the comments on here have been embarrassing when you consider its a Saints fans site and I am loathed to be associated with them. The matchday thread in particular along with Jays injury thread being dominated by petty squabbling about Gazzaniga. Free speech and all that but it's incredibly arogant of those taking part to suppose that the rest of us want to waste time reading that cr@p. I agree with Corky. The match result, whilst disappointing pales into insignificance compared to Jays injury worries and we wish him all the best.

Well said halo, your comment reflects my feelings 100%, I deliberately stayed away from social media until yesterday, and spent the weekend sending good vibes in the direction of Jay-Rod instead.
