Artur Boruc could be in line for a quick-fire Saints debut tonight.

The 32-year-old Polish keeper only joined the club after watching Saints beat Aston Villa on Saturday but could figure as his new club takes on former boss Dave Jones’ Sheffield Wednesday in the third round of the Capital One Cup at St Mary’s this evening.

It is understood that Nigel Adkins would like to blood Boruc as soon as possible with the experienced international having not played since May.

But he will only do so if he thinks that Boruc is entirely ready to get a taste of the action so quickly.

If Boruc can play and comes through successfully he will be in contention to start against Everton.

The ex-Celtic and Fiorentina man has been brought in to bolster a goalkeeping department that includes Kelvin Davis , who was dropped for the Villa match, and Paulo Gazzaniga who was drafted in for a first Saints start.

Adkins is expected to make a full 11 changes for the game against Wednesday tonight, who are also expected to change their side around from their regular league line-up.

There could be youngsters given a run out, such as Luke Shaw, who is looking to impress as a good performance could gain him a left back slot in the Premier League .

Also some of the players who helped take Saints into the Premier League such as Richard Chaplow and Danny Butterfield could be given a game, along with the likes of Dan Seaborne .

Emmanuel Mayuka is hoping for a first start since his £3.5m summer move.

Isn't it strange how we do this - because we can?
This is a chance to get through the last 16 of the competiton - when do you start to take it seriously?
The draw has been kind - a home tie against a club last year in League 1, who have struggled to adapt to The Championship. Surely it's a gimme?
The second string (although many not so second string) will be good enough tonight.
I remember when Wednesday used to have the woo-doo over us - but will we have the last hoot tonight? Bring on The Owls!

How long has it been since we could put out a "second string" 11 that has players as good as this? It has at least four players who are looking to get a first team run out at some time. Boruc/Chaplow/Shaw/M
ayuka. That is the spine of a strong team if ever I saw one !!

It's good to have this depth and its also good to know they will be taking it seriously to justify a first team place.

I hope we actually do well in this competition. I know the premiership takes priority but cup runs are exciting and fun for the fans.

Oh yes, Jay Rod, our record signing, who disappeared after the rest of the summer signings arrived. Surely he'll get a game tonight. If not, why did we pay £6m for him and to leave him out in the cold or play him out of position?

Loved watching Gaston, our new record signing, at the weekend but Jay Rod needs some games - and confidence!

Someone else who needs games and confidence is Steve de Ridder. Play Steve, Jay Rod and Mayuka and we'll murder Wednesday! COYRS!

I don't know much about Boruc but I'll look forward to seeing him tonight.

What did people think of the new young keeper on Saturday? He did not have to make many saves, though I thought he should have stopped Bent's goal. But his positioning looked naturally better than KD's, especially at the near post.

I meant Tadanari as well. He came back from international break with arm in sling even though he didn't play. No news on OS though.

Great move, branching out on a limb to put a Pole on the staff. This is an offshoot of my note to Nige in which I caned our keeper strength. Suspected he couldn't see the woods for the trees, so urged him to stop beating about the bush, get to the root of the problem and cut the deadwood at Staplewood to get us out of the woods.

Limber up and log a good one tonight Boruc and touch wood you'll stake your place!

It was good to get a win under our belts on Saturday, Saints played very well but let's not get carried away.
Aston Villa had won one game at home and drawn one away.
Everton next Saturday will be a different proposition entirely and we should do nothing tonight that will weaken our chances of bringng home at least a point from Goodison.
The League Cup or whatever its new name is, is a second class competition, which apart from the final and semi finals will be contested between clubs' reserves -- it should be re-named the Football Combination Cup which in the old days was a competition specifically for the stiffs.
For those not as knowledgeable or experienced as me, who will no doubt scream I'm talking nonsense,I say, just look up all the attendances and the team members in tomorrow's papers.
I would advise NA to play the reserves and tell them to treat the game as a friendly, we need a run in this Competition like a hole in the head! ---- NC will have to foresake the few bob a run in this competition would give him, the return is less than insignificant compared to Premiership survival.

A different type of humour.

I met a Wednesday supporter on holiday the day after they had beaten Fulham.

He said, "We've got a great left side mid fielder. Jermaine Johnson. Trouble is he's always injured. Pulled muscles, hamstrings, the lot! We call him the tampon kid, in for one week out for three."

His wife suddenly appeared out of a shop. Face like a bag of nails.

"Come on Bill!"

"I'll leave you with that one." he said and grinned.

Is Lee back? Never did get any official news on him. I know we like to keep things private, but Lee's hand injury is hardly a state secret.
Think Saffa means Tadanari Lee - hand injury Lee (Barnard) is on loan to Bmuff.
I meant Tadanari as well. He came back from international break with arm in sling even though he didn't play. No news on OS though.
Oh sorry Fran, my mistake, I missed Tad's sling moment

Lee Westwood at loggerheads with Tiger Woods in the Ryder Cup this weekend, can’t wait. Woods is good with his 1 wood on and off the course, whereas Westwood shines with his 3 wood. Hard to pick a winner, I for one am stumped.

The masses finally wake up to the talents of Rickie Lambert


Football’s fashionistas are falling over themselves to acknowledge Southampton striker Rickie Lambert as the Premier League’s latest working-class hero. Grant Holt, Norwich’s status symbol, is so last year, dahling.

It’s all nonsense, of course, but the fuss is a sign that he, and Southampton, have arrived. The only surprise about Lambert’s emergence as an authentic top-class striker is that anyone is, well, surprised.

He is big enough to wear the number seven shirt at Southampton which, like the seven at Liverpool, nine at Newcastle, and 10 in most clubs, has a certain weight about it. It once belonged to Matt Le Tissier, who also dared to be different.

Scouts from all of the big clubs have nibbled at Lambert like fish attacking a piece of bread. But none saw beyond his immediate potential as a combative, physically imposing centre-forward. They were put off by his age, 30, and consequent lack of resale value.

That’s puzzling, given that he has scored 92 goals in the three years since his £1m move from Bristol Rovers. He has converted 26 penalties out of 26, and has his eye on Le Tissier’s club record of 47 out of 48.

He drops deep to link up play and has a good range of passes. He compensates for his lack of pace with spatial awareness and a quick football brain. He is not the big lump up front that some would have you believe his knack of pulling off his marker to find space at the far post has already embarrassed some celebrated defenders.

One of the subplots of Southampton’s season will be the development of his professional relationship with Gastón Ramírez, whose vision and technical ability will create chances for him even in the forbidding environment of the Premier League.

Lambert’s back story challenges the prejudices of what is, despite its global dimensions and superficial glamour, an innately conservative sport. He was unemployed for four months after being released by Blackpool and resurrected his career at Macclesfield, Stockport and Rochdale.

He’s no overnight hero, but he’ll be around for a while.

The League Cup or whatever its new name is, is a second class competition, which apart from the final and semi finals will be contested between clubs' reserves -- it should be re-named the Football Combination Cup which in the old days was a competition specifically for the stiffs.

True enough - I think Pompey's FA Cup was definitely worth the money it cost them.

Not that they ever paid it, obviously.

Waited on line this morning for West Ham away tickets and finally got through to purchase tickets at 9.15.
Then found out that the registration of members was not operational and it was only open for members already registered.
Called the ticket office and eventually got through after about ten minutes of redialling only to be told to call the other number for away tickets.
Called the other number and eventually gt through to an answer machine that told me to call back when it wasn't so busy.
Called again by hitting redial for about another ten minutes and finally got through to a human being.
I was told that they couldn't do anything about the registration issue as it was not operational and that the best bet for tickets would be to go to the ticket office.
Drove from Netley to the ticket office and queued for about ten minutes and finally got to the ticket office.
Told the lady I wanted 4 tickets for West Ham away and handed over the 4 customer numbers she asked for.
She then told me she'd checked the data base and could not give me any tickets because I hadn't already purchased 2 away match tickets.
I told her I was told to come over by people on the phone and this was not mentioned to me. I also told her about the fiasco I'd had since 9am trying to buy on line and get proper info via the two phone lines.
I also told her that because of work commitments I couldn't get to Man City but did go through similar hassle and tying to get an Arsenal away ticket to no avail because I hadn't gone to Man City away???
I asked her how can anyone (who has been a multiple season ticket holder for the past 3 years and has travelled the length and breadth of the country following Saints in League 1 and the Championship) ever get another away ticket for the Premier League campaign now they have missed the very first game of the season.
Her answer......wait until they go on general sale and IF there's any left you might be lucky.
What a total f@ck up.
The information given out is p1ss poor and the ticket allocations seem lower for away games in the premier league than they did in League 1 and the Championship which is also p1ss poor.
The Woolston Connection are becoming rather annoyed with the new allocation system and are slowly becoming and feeling disconnected from Saints.
Anyone else struggling out there or can anyone get hold of four West Ham tickets either through the sh1t Saints system or through another outlet????

The masses finally wake up to the talents of Rickie Lambert


Football’s fashionistas are falling over themselves to acknowledge Southampton striker Rickie Lambert as the Premier League’s latest working-class hero. Grant Holt, Norwich’s status symbol, is so last year, dahling.

It’s all nonsense, of course, but the fuss is a sign that he, and Southampton, have arrived. The only surprise about Lambert’s emergence as an authentic top-class striker is that anyone is, well, surprised.

He is big enough to wear the number seven shirt at Southampton which, like the seven at Liverpool, nine at Newcastle, and 10 in most clubs, has a certain weight about it. It once belonged to Matt Le Tissier, who also dared to be different.

Scouts from all of the big clubs have nibbled at Lambert like fish attacking a piece of bread. But none saw beyond his immediate potential as a combative, physically imposing centre-forward. They were put off by his age, 30, and consequent lack of resale value.

That’s puzzling, given that he has scored 92 goals in the three years since his £1m move from Bristol Rovers. He has converted 26 penalties out of 26, and has his eye on Le Tissier’s club record of 47 out of 48.

He drops deep to link up play and has a good range of passes. He compensates for his lack of pace with spatial awareness and a quick football brain. He is not the big lump up front that some would have you believe his knack of pulling off his marker to find space at the far post has already embarrassed some celebrated defenders.

One of the subplots of Southampton’s season will be the development of his professional relationship with Gastón Ramírez, whose vision and technical ability will create chances for him even in the forbidding environment of the Premier League.

Lambert’s back story challenges the prejudices of what is, despite its global dimensions and superficial glamour, an innately conservative sport. He was unemployed for four months after being released by Blackpool and resurrected his career at Macclesfield, Stockport and Rochdale.

He’s no overnight hero, but he’ll be around for a while.

It does appear to be shambolic, but it is more down to the measly allocation of tickets rather than a fault of our Club who are struggling to be fair with the distribution, surely the Premier should be addressing this matter.

Saint Don - We (Saints) give over 3000 to nearly all the teams that come to St Marys......why?
If other teams are only giving us 5% of their capacity a it seems to be the case why don't we follow suit??
If we did the away fans can be neatly tucked away in a corner and the Northam end could be over three quarters full of Saints fans to generate even more atmosphere.
It just doesn't make sense to me.

I guess it is down to the capacity of the away teams stadium, won't get many for Wigan at that rate.

Many will wait to see what the weathers like tonight and if they come they'll buy on the night. It's hardly a mouth watering tie and the competition doesn't really generate much interest to some people until the quarter finals. Watch everyone turn up then!!

Waited on line this morning for West Ham away tickets and finally got through to purchase tickets at 9.15.
Then found out that the registration of members was not operational and it was only open for members already registered.
Called the ticket office and eventually got through after about ten minutes of redialling only to be told to call the other number for away tickets.
Called the other number and eventually gt through to an answer machine that told me to call back when it wasn't so busy.
Called again by hitting redial for about another ten minutes and finally got through to a human being.
I was told that they couldn't do anything about the registration issue as it was not operational and that the best bet for tickets would be to go to the ticket office.
Drove from Netley to the ticket office and queued for about ten minutes and finally got to the ticket office.
Told the lady I wanted 4 tickets for West Ham away and handed over the 4 customer numbers she asked for.
She then told me she'd checked the data base and could not give me any tickets because I hadn't already purchased 2 away match tickets.
I told her I was told to come over by people on the phone and this was not mentioned to me. I also told her about the fiasco I'd had since 9am trying to buy on line and get proper info via the two phone lines.
I also told her that because of work commitments I couldn't get to Man City but did go through similar hassle and tying to get an Arsenal away ticket to no avail because I hadn't gone to Man City away???
I asked her how can anyone (who has been a multiple season ticket holder for the past 3 years and has travelled the length and breadth of the country following Saints in League 1 and the Championship) ever get another away ticket for the Premier League campaign now they have missed the very first game of the season.
Her answer......wait until they go on general sale and IF there's any left you might be lucky.
What a total f@ck up.
The information given out is p1ss poor and the ticket allocations seem lower for away games in the premier league than they did in League 1 and the Championship which is also p1ss poor.
The Woolston Connection are becoming rather annoyed with the new allocation system and are slowly becoming and feeling disconnected from Saints.
Anyone else struggling out there or can anyone get hold of four West Ham tickets either through the sh1t Saints system or through another outlet????
Not being a sesaon ticket holder but being on the data base and a Saints member before that for years now
counts for nothing.
Would of liked to do a few away days this year but dont think I have much chance.
Hopefully a couple of good cup runs will be able to rectify that. Really wanted to go to QPR this year so hoping we get them in the quaters of the FA or league cup.
Anyway come on Scunny.

It won't let me have Wet Spam tickets. Wish I'd bought Man City tickets now even though I couldn't go!

It just doesn't make sense to me.
I guess it is down to the capacity of the away teams stadium, won't get many for Wigan at that rate.
Our system is shitte. I rang ticket office yesterday for Everton tickets but they said I had to do it online or in person. I'm home ill and can't do it online as I'm not registered and the registration bit isn't working. They also told me there are loads of tickets left.
We are even contemplating buying Everton tickets and selling them on if possible or just throwing them and he money away just to get an away ticket sale. We all want to go to West Ham, QPR, Liverpool and Norwich to mention a few but at this rate we will be going f@cking no where!!
When I was a sponsor I just sent an email and it all happened but NC decided he didn't want the manager sponsored any more so now I'm just an ordinary pleb like Slugger, Bill and Puppy. I even had a burger outside the ground on Saturday and they gave me some free sweets!

Why don't they do a 'season ticket' for away games? I'd buy one and sell on/give away the one's I couldn't do.
I think a lot of people would do the same if it was put in place, I know we would.
Guess we'll have to get in line behind you plebs as well then.
I'd be careful of accepting sweets from strangers though!
I think it's wrong that the whole thing swings on Man City away. There will be a few who bought because of where they live and others who saw their first game in years.

I don't see why an all singing all dancing computer system can't take into account previous seasons away attendance, particularly this early in the new season.

You've got him wrong by the way. He gave me sweets and offered to take me back after the match to see his pet skunts but I couldn't make it this week. Nice chap. It's all new to me out there!

Hello, my good Saints freinds. It was so good to see you have your first win against Villa. I did not like to visit you whilst you were having a torrid opening spell just in case it appeared that I was having a gloat. Your opening fixtures dealt to you surely could never had been worse. You should have no trouble tonight against Wednesday as here at Brighton they were totally outplayed 3 nil. Now that's a familiar score line between our two great clubs. We are having a wonderful season so far (thank you for Dean Hammonds' return). I hope it doesn't fall away for us like it did last season. Somehow I think not. Good luck to you for the rest of the season, I'm sure you will survive with very little trouble.

A blast from the past anyone remember that great centre forward for Saints, DEREK REEVES.Alongside our number 8 of the time GEORGE O'BRIAN-they formed a lethal goalscoring partnership..If NA was more adventurious in the system he plays i reckon Lambert and Mayuka could working in tandem score 30 goals between them in the premiership.COME ON YOU SAINTS

At least you're a sensible fan, making sensible points and not what Confucious would call 'a log'.

Seventh-Junction, every sympathy for you and all who are struggling with what seems to be a hoplessly inadequate system.

I intended to get Arsenal tickets but the 3,000 tickets went before I could say, 'Good loggy, miss moggy'.

Does anyone know why the club didn't ask for a second 3,000? I thought we were entitled to 10% for away Prem matches.

Would love to be over this w/e (if I could get tickets). Never been to Goodison. Alas, for us away fans, visits home this season could be a nightmare.

As for this evening, It won't be straight forward, the Owls have been investing. I wonder how Michael Antonio (if played) will get on. Sure Dave Jones will get a good reception.

Depends on the fixture. The London games will all be sell-outs but it's amazing how many fans won't travel past the midlands. There were absolutely loads of empty seats at the Etihad and I'm guessing Everton won't be a sell out either.

Some of the posts on our site were less than favourable about Dean. In fact a few were down right vitriolic. However as only 7 thousand saw him at the dump Withdean they were in the minority as we now have gates of 26 thousand plus there are 20 thousand or so who never new the lad. He has been more than warmly welcomed and has put a lot more backbone into our midfield. He will I am sure be a major factor in us joining you in the Premier. In fact he is so happy at the Albion he has stated that he would be happy to make it permenant. Your loss our gain I would be happy to say. Wednesday haven't gained a point since we beat them. You'll have no problem. Good luck.

Dean always gave a good shift for us, he just ended up a little way down the pecking order. If he can inspire you to the Prem, he'll have done another good job.

From what I read here, it can't be a sell-out if nobody can actually get the chance to buy one.

Depends on the fixture. The London games will all be sell-outs but it's amazing how many fans won't travel past the midlands. There were absolutely loads of empty seats at the Etihad and I'm guessing Everton won't be a sell out either.
Given that I'm now Edinburgh based, I'll be trying to get to as many northern fixtures as possible (when my bank balance returns to a healthier status - would love to go to Everton, but am skint until friday).

p.s. Good luck to Brighton, would be great to have you with us next season

Seventh-Junction, every sympathy for you and all who are struggling with what seems to be a hoplessly inadequate system.

I intended to get Arsenal tickets but the 3,000 tickets went before I could say, 'Good loggy, miss moggy'.

Does anyone know why the club didn't ask for a second 3,000? I thought we were entitled to 10% for away Prem matches.

Would love to be over this w/e (if I could get tickets). Never been to Goodison. Alas, for us away fans, visits home this season could be a nightmare.

As for this evening, It won't be straight forward, the Owls have been investing. I wonder how Michael Antonio (if played) will get on. Sure Dave Jones will get a good reception.
The allocation in the prem is 10% for stadiums up to 30k, stadiums over 30k it is 3000.
So the most we are ever entitled to is 3000.

I have a plan. A plan so fiendish and cunning that no skunt, not even the one with the double brain cell, could lay claim to such a plan.

I've mastered this online booking system and it let's you link to 'friends' so I will link to Slugger, Bill, Puppy, J7 and other season ticket holders. I will be going to several northern games so if Mack, Strassie etc want tickets I can buy tickets and meet them there and the others get credited with going to an away game to boot.

And if we make Wembley I will be able to buy loads of tickets and sell them for a fortune!

Everyones a winner! (Well unless we make Wembley of course when I shall be a large winner amongst a number of losers.)

From what I read here, it can't be a sell-out if nobody can actually get the chance to buy one.
I have e-mailed and even today spent an hour on the phone only for it to keep hanging up on me trying to get my wife and son on the register who always came to games with me and in the past were members, I have also brought along quite a few of my son's freinds for their first ever games, for last few seasons we were needed seems we are not anymore, I know Spurs sing a song like our's and tbh they are nearer.

It just doesn't make sense to me.
I guess it is down to the capacity of the away teams stadium, won't get many for Wigan at that rate.
Our system is shitte. I rang ticket office yesterday for Everton tickets but they said I had to do it online or in person. I'm home ill and can't do it online as I'm not registered and the registration bit isn't working. They also told me there are loads of tickets left.
We are even contemplating buying Everton tickets and selling them on if possible or just throwing them and he money away just to get an away ticket sale. We all want to go to West Ham, QPR, Liverpool and Norwich to mention a few but at this rate we will be going f@cking no where!!
When I was a sponsor I just sent an email and it all happened but NC decided he didn't want the manager sponsored any more so now I'm just an ordinary pleb like Slugger, Bill and Puppy. I even had a burger outside the ground on Saturday and they gave me some free sweets!

Why don't they do a 'season ticket' for away games? I'd buy one and sell on/give away the one's I couldn't do.
I think a lot of people would do the same if it was put in place, I know we would.
Guess we'll have to get in line behind you plebs as well then.
I'd be careful of accepting sweets from strangers though!
I think it's wrong that the whole thing swings on Man City away. There will be a few who bought because of where they live and others who saw their first game in years.

I don't see why an all singing all dancing computer system can't take into account previous seasons away attendance, particularly this early in the new season.

You've got him wrong by the way. He gave me sweets and offered to take me back after the match to see his pet skunts but I couldn't make it this week. Nice chap. It's all new to me out there!
Ticketmaster can handle hundred's of different events including football simultaneously..what is our problem..

One clue, in trying to remove the stigma of football holliganism the over reaction is so great they throw out the baby with the bath water...

Many fans tried to get tickets for certain games and are clearly from here,,, computer say's no...however some jobsworth moron wrote the programme under instructions from the club..

We had a drink at the Ars before half time, I know, I know, we are allowed flags at away games however SFC despite it's relativelynew fantastic management team side team side is still treating fans as potential troublemakers and nee'r do well's.

Depends on the fixture. The London games will all be sell-outs but it's amazing how many fans won't travel past the midlands. There were absolutely loads of empty seats at the Etihad and I'm guessing Everton won't be a sell out either.
From what I read here, it can't be a sell-out if nobody can actually get the chance to buy one.
I have e-mailed and even today spent an hour on the phone only for it to keep hanging up on me trying to get my wife and son on the register who always came to games with me and in the past were members, I have also brought along quite a few of my son's freinds for their first ever games, for last few seasons we were needed seems we are not anymore, I know Spurs sing a song like our's and tbh they are nearer.
What did you write...?
I gave them my customer number, my wife and sons full details and a coverng note explaining that we cannot buy tickets as the register is not working but we have bought tickets for the previous seasons and would like to continue to do so. Should have said that Folketone to St Marys is 152 miles each way so we cannot go to the ticket office to buy them.

I've mastered this online booking system and it let's you link to 'friends' so I will link to Slugger, Bill, Puppy, J7 and other season ticket holders. I will be going to several northern games so if Mack, Strassie etc want tickets I can buy tickets and meet them there and the others get credited with going to an away game to boot.

And if we make Wembley I will be able to buy loads of tickets and sell them for a fortune!

Everyones a winner! (Well unless we make Wembley of course when I shall be a large winner amongst a number of losers.)
You have obviously never been on the receiving end of a chinese burn from one of the South Itchen Bovril Dogs of War! :O)

I've mastered this online booking system and it let's you link to 'friends' so I will link to Slugger, Bill, Puppy, J7 and other season ticket holders. I will be going to several northern games so if Mack, Strassie etc want tickets I can buy tickets and meet them there and the others get credited with going to an away game to boot.

And if we make Wembley I will be able to buy loads of tickets and sell them for a fortune!

Everyones a winner! (Well unless we make Wembley of course when I shall be a large winner amongst a number of losers.)
You have obviously never been on the receiving end of a chinese burn from one of the South Itchen Bovril Dogs of War! :O)
So far you've been the only one stupid enough to text me their customer number and date of birth!

Scrub that, your brothers gone for it as well!

Hope we win tonight. Wemberley Wemberley Wemberley....

To be fair if we do make it I'll let you have first dibs at your own tickets.

It was good to get a win under our belts on Saturday, Saints played very well but let's not get carried away.
Aston Villa had won one game at home and drawn one away.
Everton next Saturday will be a different proposition entirely and we should do nothing tonight that will weaken our chances of bringng home at least a point from Goodison.
The League Cup or whatever its new name is, is a second class competition, which apart from the final and semi finals will be contested between clubs' reserves -- it should be re-named the Football Combination Cup which in the old days was a competition specifically for the stiffs.
For those not as knowledgeable or experienced as me, who will no doubt scream I'm talking nonsense,I say, just look up all the attendances and the team members in tomorrow's papers.
I would advise NA to play the reserves and tell them to treat the game as a friendly, we need a run in this Competition like a hole in the head! ---- NC will have to foresake the few bob a run in this competition would give him, the return is less than insignificant compared to Premiership survival.
Remember, you read it here first!
Can't be the same Tad Boorer from way back-he never had a nice word to say about Lawrie Mac. -but you have recently. However, I have to take issue with some of your 'informed' comments.
1) You DO need a hole in the head-you can't keep talking out of your ****.
2) You SHOULD get carried away- my suggestion Coventry.
As there is no Combination league these days an extended run in this competition would be good for our club: Giving more players and fans the opportunity to turn out, helping new players bed into the squad and others return from injury, whilst adding to the feel-good and general momentum that abounds currently. Costs and worth do not just appear on a bill or balance sheet, Tebourba.
