First published in Sport

MAREK Saganowski returns to St Mary’s this week sweating on a THIRD outing against Manchester United this season.

The 30-year-old Polish striker is the highest profile player returning to Saints for the start of 2009 after Danish club Aalborg showed no interest in keeping him.

During his half-season loan to the reigning Danish champions, Saganowski scored five goals in 24 league and cup matches.

Of those, three came in 13 league appearances.

He played in all six of his club’s European Champions’ League group matches, of which two were against Sir Alex Ferguson’s world champions and two against Gordon Strachan’s Celtic.

Saganowski struck once in the Champions League, in a 6-3 defeat in Spain against Villareal.

His last match for Aalborg was the 2-2 CL draw at Old Trafford earlier this month. Back in September, he was among the Aalborg side that lost 3-0 at home to Fergie’s men.

Full story in today's Daily Echo.

Saga needs to hit the ground running, he did well when he started, then faded badly. We need a striker to power us up the league. Doesn't look like Robertson will be staying does it.

Not exactly prolific is he !!!! But Its his experience that counts.Didnt want to be here before he went on loan,but its his commitment on his return that he will be judged on.Wonder what position Jan will play him in,given up trying to pre-guess it.

Is he going to be comfortable up-front all on his own in Jan's famous 'I'm only in it for a draw if we are lucky' 4-5-1 formation?

Should come back and play a couple of games in the Reserves to see if he's up to putting on a Saints shirt again. Shouldn't be anywhere near the squad for Man Utd.

I see Jordan Robertson has been recalled by sheffield utd today, good riddance I say. Nathan Dyer is also coming back, so we have a few more players now, hopefully we can propell up the league. New year, New Start, COYR!

You want to concentrate on the cup because it is obvious that you lot are going to get relegated so IF and it is a big word for two letters, IF you concentrate on the cup, there might even be a very slim possibility that you might proceed to the next round even though they might bring their reserves down to play a second class side. Just so as you,s havent forgotten we beat them at their own ground last year and went on to win the cup. But,you,s will probably be going out in this round anyway as well as getting relegated. PLAY UP POMPEY

Rudd Gillet, you know its only wishfull thinking that your dream will become reality so you need to wake up. What is reality though is the fact that you just missed promotion to div 1 last season only on the last game and this season you are in a much better position to seek that goal. Look at the league tables and you will find that you are in second position, you could make it this year. PLAY UP POMPEY

I'm pleased to see Saga back; he's better than any other forward we've got (not that this is a great recommendation...)

I don't normally communicate with lower lifeforms but I have to say that Pimply are more likely to go to the wall than Saints. £70M in debt and, according to Adams, Gaydalek has put in somewhere between £80M and £100M of his own money (gawd knows what slippery 'arry spent that much on, brown envelopes?) it's only a matter of time before the ruski jumps ship and leaves you to rot. We may get relegated, we've been there before, as have Pimply, but we are not as financially in the mire as you may well be soon, he who laughs last dear boy, laughs longest.
