Ramirez set for Saints debut?

Saints could unleash the most expensively assembled side in the club’s history for their first trip to the Emirates Stadium tomorrow.

£12m man Gaston Ramirez is available for his first game for the club, as is Japan international Maya Yoshida , signed for £2m, while Emmanuel Mayuka is also hoping for a first start since his £3.5m move.

Nigel Adkins suddenly has a host of options, and decisions to make ahead of the game at Arsenal.

With Ramirez and Yoshida having only reported to the club for the first time yesterday after travelling back from international games in South America and Japan respectively, it could be too big an ask for them to start.

However, Adkins has promised to assess them carefully over the next 24 hours in order to decide if they are ready to start or take a place on the bench.

“They’ve been to different parts of the world and different time zones they’ve had to go through and some haven’t arrived back until Thursday,” he said.

“So it’s a case of checking out where everybody is, what they’ve gone and done and where they physically are in preparation for a great game at Arsenal.

“It’s his (Yoshida’s) first day in the building with us on Thursday, the same as Gaston.

“To get ready for a game on Saturday is a challenge and having not trained with their teammates before and not met them is a challenge as well, but it’s one we’re embracing.”

Saints are aiming for a first Premier League win of the season when they take on the Gunners tomorrow.

Adkins is hopeful that the lessons they have learned from a first three games which have seen them win plenty of plaudits but no points will stand them in good stead.

“The challenge is getting a team ready for the Barclay’s Premier League and that’s what we’ve embraced,” said Adkins.

Long haul flying messes up everyone/s physical condition no matter who you are or what class you are flying..however i would hope that a jetlagged Yoshida who has the biggest time difference to adjust to, will replace Fonte whose performance in all games this season has cost us points.

Possible Starting 11?

Davis, Clyne, Yoshida, Jos, Fox, Morgan, Davis, Gaston, Lallana, Puncheon, Lambert.

Gazza, Richardson, Fonte, Chaplow, Ward-Prowse, Mayuka, Lee.

I've been really impressed with Puncheon this season, I think he deserves his starting place. Gaston and Yoshida are good enough to be thrown into any team so there's no reason for them not to be starting. Guly has been dropped in my opinion, he's had chances to shine this season but he never delivers.

Our team is looking pretty **** good!! :D

COYS!!

The good thing about first class is that babies have to go in the overhead compartment.

Don't forget Jos has given away 2 penalties already this season. We are lucky Davis saved them or our GD would be even worse!
The whole defence needs to do their job, not just Fonte! But I agree, Yoshida is worthy a start, ahead of him probably.

All of the above have done well but I'd put WP straight in at the start and have Gaston coming on later possibly for Puncheon. My fear is that RL will not start for the reasons given at ManC i.e. that he could spend most of the time chasing around and so bringing him on for impact.

I'd start with him and IF he is subbed late on then hopefully it won't start a rush to the defence that happened against ManU.

Shaw should feature - pehaps at the start with Fox carrying an 'injury'.

Either way I am looking forward to the game big time. Won't be 'gutted' if we get beat but something tells me we are gonna start our season tomorrow!

Barca, true enough, just talking with family in Perth WA who watch every game they blame KD whose distribution has been pretty dire and has probably undermined confidence..so lots of angles but agree the defence as a whole needs to be much more tuned into the Premier challenge.

Agree, KD is never confident with the ball or in the box. I think it's good to play out from the back sometimes as it shows we want to play football and try and keep possession but KD doesn't instill confidence in anyone. He makes some great saves but if we don't sort our defence, he's gonna have a hell of a pummelling from the PL forwards this season!!
A draw would be excellent.

Ward Prowes should start I think but really not sure on Shaw. If the centre of the defence was more secure Fox is fine.

depends how much they drank on the flight. If they drank enough then yes. Seriously, take your point though, probably a bit risky playing Yoshida and expecting him to gell with whoever (probably Hoolveld, but both CHs have looked out of sorts so far). But ramirez must play, just give him the ball and let him get on with it.

I am so happy someone else has brought this up. I mentioned it a few months back and not a whiff!

"one i was a boy i ate one dozen eggs to make me get big and large.... but now im a man i eat two dozen eggs and im roughly the size of a barge"

on second thoughts probably not the best clip for the norhtern faithful but there is definately millage in it.

Lets hope he is a better player than the Ecuadorian player Delgado who never really hit the expected heights of excellence which all the hype surrounding him at the time created.

Your not wrong there CB but I think the fact he has played in Italy should be a good thing well hope rather than think. Agustin came straight from S. America if I remember correctly but didn't he have an awesome video that was shown at HT of a game a few years back. Think that started the watch players before they sign era on Youtube

According to my Italian friends, they say Ramirez is the real deal and was sort after by top teams. One of these up and coming stars. Well, somehow we landed him!

I hope he turns out to be just that. Watch this space.

We didn’t do our homework close enough on the big man. He was already on an injury curve making him susceptible to the demands of top flight English footy. Not my words, but Tim Vickery of the BBC who talks far more sense on footy matters than me :)

He did look good in his opening game from what I remember, but sadly it didn’t work out.

Interestingly about Ramirez, and I did point you all to a BBC podcast on this about a month ago, Vickery who is an impartial Brit in Brazil said the following (I paraphrase):

He has a lethal left foot and will score us plenty of goals from set plays.
He is a tall lad and will cause opponents discomfort in the final third.
He is not use to the speed of the premiership and will find this confronting.
He is a young player that flashes both brilliance but at the same time can go missing when the team is on the back foot.

I don’t think he will be tracking back Nigel

They were and are the original Scummers, for industrial dock dispute reasons but then tried to re-spin it, but that it is old hat (as anyone over 35 knows).
They are a seriously insecure bunch down in Poopey when it comes to Southampton.
They hate while we love.
They are a Town while we are a CITY.
It eats them away!!!

Portsmouth is definatley a City. The fact they have a City Council tells us that.

I am over 35 (was 36 in august) and I've never heard Pompey called scummers. The history of the dockyard dispute made us the scum I thought. In fact SCUM was a nickname given to us by virtue of the dockyard group 'Southampton Company Union Men' who would travel to Pompey to work.

We are SCUM and they are Skates. Some think it's skates because of the fish. A fish that is both a bottom feeder and the pleasure fish of randy seamen. My old grandad said they were skates because of how quick they skated from the top flight to the bottom divisions in the early 20th century. I've never looked it up so just enjoy all three versions.

After yesterday it might be a good idea if Saints had a player who was good when you are on the back foot (it might be good if Pompey had a player mind you .....)
