Morgan Schneiderlin is available to play for Saints against Liverpool on Sunday after accepting he will remain with the club.

The French midfielder was left out of the squad for the final pre-season friendly against Bayer Leverkusen last weekend as he continued to push for a move away from St Mary’s, with Tottenham favourites to land him.

Schneiderlin had reacted with frustration after being told he would not be allowed to join some of his former colleagues in being sold by Saints this summer.

However, Ronald Koeman is satisfied with the player’s reaction, and will decide tomorrow whether to include him in the squad for Liverpool.

“He had a very good week of training sessions,” said Koeman.

“We know the situation. Last week he wasn’t in shape to play, he had a very good week of sessions and that decision will be taken tomorrow.”

When asked if Schneiderlin was definitely staying at Saints, Koeman replied: “Yes because he’s not for sale.”

It'll benefit both him and the club by keeping him in the shop window and also being a steadying influence on the new and young players in the squad. I think if he keeps his head down and gives his usual 110% RK may consider letting him leave in January if he still wants to? I for one would like to think that he'll gel quickly with the new lads and realise that the grass isn't always greener when he sees some of his runaway compatriots struggling at the so called 'bigger' clubs and with MP possibly getting the obligatory Levy bullet by Xmas . Come on Spiderman the futures bright it's Orange, Red and White!

Morgan you will not regret this …caveat as long as the signings are as useful asRoKo believes…I have not been impressed and am still not impressed with how the board behaved in the close season yet I will be ecstatic to be proven wrong..

One thing I do accept, most players SRL aside went for far more than I believe they are worth, also a team and specific style of play does require pieces that 'fit' which means you end up with something bigger than the sum of the parts, indeed I think LFC will find this out to their cost with the three they poached.

Englands dire football is in no small part to the fact that no one since Venables and Hoddle have come up with a playing stlye suited to players strengths..instead succesive managers have tried to build teams around a single talisman..who the crocodile hat builds a team around Rooney for example…

So, if that is what is being done and the pieces all fit then happy days, here is hoping.

Let's not forget we have also kept J-Rod - not a peep from that man. Respect.

I wonder what the odds are on Moreechio getting sacked by December if they have a poor start. No one is safe at that club.

I doubt if Spiderman will play at Anfield though.. maybe a sub appearance.

Now I would like a similar statement with reference to Cork.

I have a feeling that we will only be playing with 1 defensive mid for the majority of the season so he may be surplus to requiemenst. But we need cover and Cork will provide that for RB as well. We dont need 3m and we dont need him going to QPR/Palace or whoever.

Today has been a possitivce day. If we end up with Vlaar or Van Dyick we will have better deffensive cover than last year.

If the board had put our foot down with Lovren & Chambers as well things would not have got so bad. However every player has his price so with the exception of Chambers (sold too cheaply so should have been kept) we got good money for the other four.

It is not unusual for a new manager to change some players to build his own team, which hopefully RonKo is doing. The cash received is now allowing him to bring in more first team players than we sold.

I just hope that it has not been wasted on mediocre players and that they all prove to be at least as good as those who have left.
If so brilliant we will be pushing for a top six place, if not then we should be able to keep clear of the relegation zone otherwise RonKo won't last long, nor will Les Reed.

Two weeks until the window closes and I hope we still get a top CB like Phillip Wollscheid or Ron Vlaar to give us a solid back line.
PLUS a proven Goalscorer as well as a fast winger with a good cross as we need to score more goals this season..

Get these three in for RonKo Les and then we really are showing the ambition to go for a top six place and can put this summer behind us.

Great news. Am pleased Saints dug their heels in and said he wasnt for sale and pleased Morgan is getting on with it. Of the others that have gone its just a shame they didnt/couldnt have done the same with Lovren whatever the cost because a) he is a very good player and b) he deserved some grief with his words and attitude.Anyway we have a good manager and some good signings so every reason to look forward. I guess Koeman would have liked a little more time with the new players before the start of the season so if we get a half decent start we will be doing okay .

Yes Brenda thinks he's a top manager. I' m amazed that they have let him loose with all the Bugs Bunny cash. He's overspent £10 million on AL and at least £5million on Lovren. Wake up Brenda you punched above your weight last season because of Bug's goals and assists. He's gone and you haven't replaced him. Sturridge will be half the player without him and you will be extreme!y disappointed with AL. After the way you went after our club you deserve to be given the boot around the same time Levy kicks out Poxytino.

It's all going well, Morgan's first club - Racing Strasbourg - won tonight and now have 2 wins out of 2 and are second in the league. That should make him happy long enough for him to focus on the job in hand at Anfield.

We'll be drawing 1-1 into the 75th minute and Ron will send Morgan on to help shut up shop. Then, in the 96th minute (Clutts will add on a few, hoping it will enable the Scousers to grab a winner), Morgan will run the length of the pitch, dribbling past Rickie and his team mates on route. He'll stroll past a static Stevie Gerrard on the halfway line, nutmeg Lovren on the edge of the area and fire into the top corner of the net for the winner.

Don't believe me? It's written in the stars, the tea leaves and the bottom of this glass of Portuguese red I've just finished.

Liverpool FC v Southampton: scouting report

A detailed look at the Reds' opening Premier League fixture as Ronald Koeman looks to rebuild the St Mary's club

Match: Liverpool v Southampton

Date: August 17, 2014

Manager: Ronald Koeman. The Dutchman – most famous for his winner at Wembley to give Barcelona their first European Cup in 1992 – joined Southampton this summer, a time when pretty much everybody else was leaving St Mary's.
He comes to the south coast with a reputation of rebuilding clubs, something that could be vital at the Saints, after a strong few years at Feyenoord. During his three seasons with the Eredivisie club, he finished in the top three in every season and developed a number of players who starred at the World Cup – including Bruno Martins Indi, Stefan de Vrij and Jordy Clasie.
Form: Despite the changes, Southampton enjoyed a decent pre-season with solid wins at lower league sides. Swindon, Bournemouth and Brighton all fell to the Saints, while Koeman also enjoyed high-scoring wins over Hoensbrock and Sporting Hasselt from the Low Countries. Their preparations for the new season ended with a 1-0 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen – but that was only the second goal conceded in the six warm-up games.
How they'll set up: The style appears to be transitioning from the pressing style of Mauricio Pochettino into a more direct, counter attacking format. Koeman has showed flexibility in Holland, changing between a 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1 and 5-3-2 – but in games against tougher sides away from home, such as PSV Eindhoven in April, he elected to play five at the back.
Since taking over at Southampton, he has largely played the 4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 hybrid with Dusan Tadic, Lloyd Isgrove and Graziano Pelle forming a new-look front three for the Saints – although it remains to be seen whether Isgrove retains his place when more senior players, like Gaston Ramirez, return from niggles. The arrival of Shane Long may also complicate matters, and may see them revert back to two up front.
The midfield will be as industrious as ever with Steven Davis, Victor Wanyama, James Ward-Prowse and Jack Cork all featuring throughout pre-season – not to mention loan signing Saphir Taider from Inter Milan – while Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne will look to get forward at full-back. New signing Fraser Forster is likely to start in goal, with captain Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshida expected at centre back.
Sum them up in 140 characters: Is anyone there? Good club with good values before Liverpool took half their squad. Dutch courage required, but thankfully stripes are back.
Three players to watch:
Graziano Pelle: Pelle by name and, with 50 league goals in 57 games over the past two seasons, it would appear Pele by nature. The tall, strong Italian finally found his feet under Koeman after years of struggling at Parma, Sampdoria and even AZ Alkmaar (where he briefly played under the Dutchman).
The arrival of Shane Long for £12m seems strange given Pelle was set to be the spearhead of Saints' attack, but they could combine as a front two. Pelle has all the attributes that has, in recent seasons, troubled the Reds' back line.
James Ward-Prowse: The departure of so many of Southampton's first-team squad will at least give proper opportunity for Ward-Prowse to develop. The 19-year-old made 34 league appearances last season, but only 16 from the start – he is now expected to have a stronger presence in the starting 11, either at the base of midfield or on the right hand side.
His dead ball delivery could become the most dangerous in the Premier League, while his running and creativity is something teams will have to stifle. If Koeman gives him a start on Sunday – which he should – Liverpool will have to work hard to dampen his star at Anfield.
Ryan Bertrand: With football's wicked sense of humour, it is no surprise the left back's first league game for Southampton is against the club that courted him throughout the summer. With Chelsea unhappy to deal with the Reds for Bertrand, the 25-year-old moved to St Mary's on loan and looks to replace Luke Shaw.
Bertrand is a Champions League winner and performed well with Aston Villa at Anfield last season. He is solid down the left and will provide decent deliveries into the box for Pelle; he also may have a point to prove against Brendan Rodgers' side.

Good club with good values before Liverpool took half their squad. Dutch courage required, but thankfully stripes are back. Three players to watch: Graziano Pelle: Pelle by name and, with 50 league goals in 57 games over the past two seasons, it would appear Pele by nature. The tall, strong Italian finally found his feet under Koeman after years of struggling at Parma, Sampdoria and even AZ Alkmaar (where he briefly played under the Dutchman). The arrival of Shane Long for £12m seems strange given Pelle was set to be the spearhead of Saints' attack, but they could combine as a front two. Pelle has all the attributes that has, in recent seasons, troubled the Reds' back line. James Ward-Prowse: The departure of so many of Southampton's first-team squad will at least give proper opportunity for Ward-Prowse to develop. The 19-year-old made 34 league appearances last season, but only 16 from the start – he is now expected to have a stronger presence in the starting 11, either at the base of midfield or on the right hand side. His dead ball delivery could become the most dangerous in the Premier League, while his running and creativity is something teams will have to stifle. If Koeman gives him a start on Sunday – which he should – Liverpool will have to work hard to dampen his star at Anfield. Ryan Bertrand: With football's wicked sense of humour, it is no surprise the left back's first league game for Southampton is against the club that courted him throughout the summer. With Chelsea unhappy to deal with the Reds for Bertrand, the 25-year-old moved to St Mary's on loan and looks to replace Luke Shaw. Bertrand is a Champions League winner and performed well with Aston Villa at Anfield last season. He is solid down the left and will provide decent deliveries into the box for Pelle; he also may have a point to prove against Brendan Rodgers' side.[/p][/quote]We should hammer Liverhampton easily then.

Seriously, I'll bite. I feel like I've neglected Pompey over these past few years and it's not fair on you given you're supposed to be our rivals. Who plays in your team these days? Who is your manager? Are you still playing at that funny ground with the tin roof? Does that weird blue man with the bell still go? What division are you in? Do you still have 'jobsite' written on your shirts? You're like your own little world of mystery down there. I mean, I watched a thing about your town on telly the other night but all they talked about was prostitutes and syphilis and somehow neglected that wonderful team of yours. Do tell!
Stret please don't neglect the blue few for quite so long again!
They need reminding of how carp they really are on a more regular basis.
Might I just correct you on one small point though, you asked if the are still 'playing' at that funny ground. It the use of the word 'playing' that I object to!
I think Andy (there was no one else who would take the job) awful is still in charge of the non-community owned club AMD the end with the bell does go when he isn't in the pub for the entire first half and lots of the second half.

Liverpool FC v Southampton: scouting report

A detailed look at the Reds' opening Premier League fixture as Ronald Koeman looks to rebuild the St Mary's club

Match: Liverpool v Southampton

Date: August 17, 2014

Manager: Ronald Koeman. The Dutchman – most famous for his winner at Wembley to give Barcelona their first European Cup in 1992 – joined Southampton this summer, a time when pretty much everybody else was leaving St Mary's.
He comes to the south coast with a reputation of rebuilding clubs, something that could be vital at the Saints, after a strong few years at Feyenoord. During his three seasons with the Eredivisie club, he finished in the top three in every season and developed a number of players who starred at the World Cup – including Bruno Martins Indi, Stefan de Vrij and Jordy Clasie.
Form: Despite the changes, Southampton enjoyed a decent pre-season with solid wins at lower league sides. Swindon, Bournemouth and Brighton all fell to the Saints, while Koeman also enjoyed high-scoring wins over Hoensbrock and Sporting Hasselt from the Low Countries. Their preparations for the new season ended with a 1-0 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen – but that was only the second goal conceded in the six warm-up games.
How they'll set up: The style appears to be transitioning from the pressing style of Mauricio Pochettino into a more direct, counter attacking format. Koeman has showed flexibility in Holland, changing between a 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1 and 5-3-2 – but in games against tougher sides away from home, such as PSV Eindhoven in April, he elected to play five at the back.
Since taking over at Southampton, he has largely played the 4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 hybrid with Dusan Tadic, Lloyd Isgrove and Graziano Pelle forming a new-look front three for the Saints – although it remains to be seen whether Isgrove retains his place when more senior players, like Gaston Ramirez, return from niggles. The arrival of Shane Long may also complicate matters, and may see them revert back to two up front.
The midfield will be as industrious as ever with Steven Davis, Victor Wanyama, James Ward-Prowse and Jack Cork all featuring throughout pre-season – not to mention loan signing Saphir Taider from Inter Milan – while Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne will look to get forward at full-back.

Osprey, you didn't think most would stick around when they realised that their predictions of doom were completely wrong did you?

Don't worry though as some are still around and seem to be having some sort of Damascene conversion!

They will all be back and back to their usual selves if we lose on Sunday, even a draw will see them complaining that we would have won had the players stayed and we spent over £50mill on 2 marquee signings.

Don't forget though that it will all be les reed and Ralph's fault.
