J-Rod proves his point

First published in Sport

Jay Rodriguez got himself off and running at Saints with two goals to shoot down Sheffield Wednesday at St Mary’s.

The £7m man was given a rare chance to start as an out and out striker rather than out on the left with Rickie Lambert one of many first team stars rested for the Capital One Cup third round tie.

And he proved his point with a great turn and strike on 30 minutes and a penalty on 78 minutes to bag his first goals for the club since his summer move and book a place in the last 16 for Saints.

Speaking after the 2-0 win, assistant manager Andy Crosby said: “We know that’s where he’s most comfortable and he’s got good competition in front of him at the moment but whenever you get an opportunity you’ve got to take it and he’s done that.

“Whenever he’s needed we know he’s more than ready.”

Guly was very uninspiring tonight looked as though he did not want to be out there tonight. if he does not want to play for saints ship him out.

J Rod yes he got the two goals but the pen was sh1t first goal was class but then he seemed a bit f the pace to be expected i guess.

Gazza in goal wow he is a entertainer.

yoshi and jos worked very well together

a win is a win and through to the next round could a cup run happen??????

I have just got in from the match.
Jay was lively and put himself around a fair bit and scored a good goal.
Very lucky to score with the pen but they all count.
His body language doesn't look right though, he seems very dejected when things don't work out.
He needs to be patient and use the game time to start to be the player that NA and NC have seen in him.
Yoshida and Jos looked good at the back together.
Gazza in goal made some good saves.
Prowse was saints best player,has all the makings of a being one of the best.
Overall, a fair result.

You were obv watching a different game, Guly did very little wrong, he wasnt amazing but neither was anybody else
De Ridder was the disappointing one, just kept dribbling till he lost it and very few of his passes found their mark, shame as he has the right attributes but not the right footballing brain, can see why Adkins doesnt want to play him
J Rods penalty was poorly placed but well struck hence why it went it wouldnt say it was s**t though
Hope Corky is okay although didnt look good the way he went down
Good solid performance from most today

thought Guly played well put him self about was haugry and always wanted the ball, funny how people see things different, de ridder disapointed with no end product.
Cork went off but don't think it was the ankle, hopefully just a precaution
keeper made a great save right at the end, those who left early really missed a great save, it wasn't as if they had to beat the rush!
beat the toffee's saturday and it really will be happy days!. UTS

Must say Guly was poor

De Ridder more exciting even if or little reward

Chaplow is not a right winger at all

Seabourne not a left back - where was Shaw

Reeves looked hungry, Hoskins so nie touches and what can I say about Andy Robinson

In all solid if not inspiring

With respect to Dave Jones and his team, i thought it was the sort of game you would expect from a PREMIER second team playing a lower league side. We were comfortable on the ball all over the park. Yosida gets better with every game played and the back four plus the goalie look solid without being world beaters.

In the middle of the park Jack Cork, Ward-Prowse and Guly De Prado had things under control. It was the forward line were i felt we could have done better. Steve De ridder, i thought done a lot of running down the wing but very few crosses were delivered to the forward Jay Rod. After saying that though it must be said that Jay took his goal in a true strikers fashion. He controled the pass with very quick feet, swiveled and shot all in one move. The boy is still young and surely has been bought for the future although IMO would be ready to step into R L boots if ever he gets injured. Chappers is no winger and is more effective in the middle breaking forward into the penalty box.

Nigel can feel it was a job well done tonight and none of the players, including the young subs let him down. There will be many changes for the game this Saturday but i would like to see the second half team against Aston Villa starting at Everton . If Leeds can defeat them then this must raise our own expectations for next Saturday. My team woul be
Artur Boruc.
Richardson Fonte Yosida Clyne

Davis Ward-Prowse Spidder Adam L

Rameriz
R Lambert.
But then, ... i'm not the manager.

Attendance was poor but then understandable as we fielded pretty much reserve team. No one made space, Steve was woeful, in fact I would have shown him his left every time because all he did every time was cut in to use his right ... He is not prem quality. Jay , IMO should have been terrorising their defence, still not convinced worth the price tag. Chappers worked hard, Guly gave it away a few times then won it back also hit the post. Reeves looks nippy and decent with a good left foot! Yoshida and Gazza solid. From what I could see, the current first team need not worry too much about competition for places to be honest. Highlight of the game was singing songs at the fat bloke with no shirt on in the weds fans.... Well that was my take in the game!

You all seem to be quick to criticise certain Players and I would have put money on the first post to be critical of Guly! De Ridder was playing on the left wing, he is actually a right winger so it was natural for him to cut in to get the ball on his best foot, should have switched with Chappers more often, neither were effective except for the two goals where they were both involved.

Lowlight of the night seeing...Matt Le Tissier queuing up before the game to buy a ticket (fair play to him doing it) I think he deserves to be offered a complimentary ticket for any Saints game, after all, almost single handedly kept us in the top flight of English football for many years, without his goals I believe we wouldn't be at SMS now.

I bet Sir Bobby Charlton has never bought a Man United in his life.

Gazziniga-Made some excellent saves,caught and punched well.

Richardson-looked sharp probably start Saturday.

Seaborne- Unsure at left back, poor distribution.

Hoiveld-Yoshida- both very steady.

Cork- Buzzed around but little impact.

Ward-Prowse- Little dynamo, looks like the new Paul Scholes.Great confidence and ability.

DeRidder- mazy runs few good crosses tired second half.

Chaplow- wrong position for him wasted on the wing.

Guly- playing in the hole,as always so frustrating,good shots and headers, failed to link up well.

Rodrigues- pacy, very well taken goal and pen, body language says he's dejected and out of sorts though .

On the whole Saints were the better side and deserved the win.

Nice to see Michael Antonio again happy memories of JTP at Wembley.

Although never in danger of losingl considering last nights game was a chance for the fringe players to stake a claim, I thought the game was awful... no passion, no attacking intent at all... playing across the back virtually the whole game!!!

I think J Rod would be a first choice striker for at least athird of teams in the PL He will be good cover for RL if he gets injured or suspended With the service from Adam and Ramirez he would get a hat full

At the back gazza and both CB's looked more than capable and i would expect them to start on saturday

Was Seabourne at LB as a possible replacement for Fox? Albeit until the jan window

JWP will be world class by the time he is 21 but will be used as cover for AL & GR for this year at least

All in all we have a more than adequate squad

Have you considered the fact that the ball was a wee bit greasy? In the first half he tried to make a routine catch and the ball squirted out of his hands like a wet bar of soap, later he was a bit more careful and sensibly punched on a couple of occasions.

You all seem to be quick to criticise certain Players and I would have put money on the first post to be critical of Guly! De Ridder was playing on the left wing, he is actually a right winger so it was natural for him to cut in to get the ball on his best foot, should have switched with Chappers more often, neither were effective except for the two goals where they were both involved.
You say that but if people didn't offer their opinions that went to the game then how will people who didn't go to the game know how people did? Plus i paid to go so have every right to say my opinion on what i saw, as any fan does..I thought Guly was ok in the match and worked quite hard, de ridder may have been on the left but every game he plays he always does too much until he loses it. That's my opinion
I have no problem with other peoples opinions, just wish there was more positivity and less criticism, we aren't actually blind just a wee bit blinkered, would you deny me that?

Due to work and family commitments I don't get chance to watch my team as often as I would like.

I booked tickets for last nights game the day they went on general sale, it was £15 anywhere. So asked to sit in the Itchen stand, somewhere central. My seat was 184 row B. The first problem I had was when I got to the game turnstile B was closed, there were no signs or stewards stood around explaining why, so I just went through turnstile A. When I walked out into the stand I found I had to squeeze passed loads of people to get to my seat, to then find turnstile B had been comletely taped off and wasn't aloud to sit on the seat I had paid for. I was with 4 mates and we couldn't sit together, I was just pleased I hadn't brought my kids or I would have been thoroughly f%$!*^d off.

Why was I not warned about this before entering the ground?!?! Worst St. Marys experience ever!!!

With respect to Dave Jones and his team, i thought it was the sort of game you would expect from a PREMIER second team playing a lower league side. We were comfortable on the ball all over the park. Yosida gets better with every game played and the back four plus the goalie look solid without being world beaters. In the middle of the park Jack Cork, Ward-Prowse and Guly De Prado had things under control. It was the forward line were i felt we could have done better. Steve De ridder, i thought done a lot of running down the wing but very few crosses were delivered to the forward Jay Rod. After saying that though it must be said that Jay took his goal in a true strikers fashion. He controled the pass with very quick feet, swiveled and shot all in one move. The boy is still young and surely has been bought for the future although IMO would be ready to step into R L boots if ever he gets injured. Chappers is no winger and is more effective in the middle breaking forward into the penalty box. Nigel can feel it was a job well done tonight and none of the players, including the young subs let him down. There will be many changes for the game this Saturday but i would like to see the second half team against Aston Villa starting at Everton . If Leeds can defeat them then this must raise our own expectations for next Saturday. My team woul be Artur Boruc. Richardson Fonte Yosida Clyne Davis Ward-Prowse Spidder Adam L Rameriz R Lambert.

I agree with this fair assessment of the game and player performances last night, at least that's how I saw it.

I would expect the team to have an excellent week preparing hard at Staplewood - and Nigel to come out all guns blazing! Steely resolve will be used in pre-match conference and no doubt the one game at a time line too.

According to Tokyo-Saint on SaintsWeb - Lee injured his elbow in an incident trying to break ice when away on International duty. Why do these Orientals all think they have to act like Bruce...Lee!

well done saints
You were obv watching a different game, Guly did very little wrong, he wasnt amazing but neither was anybody else
De Ridder was the disappointing one, just kept dribbling till he lost it and very few of his passes found their mark, shame as he has the right attributes but not the right footballing brain, can see why Adkins doesnt want to play him
J Rods penalty was poorly placed but well struck hence why it went it wouldnt say it was s**t though
Hope Corky is okay although didnt look good the way he went down
Good solid performance from most today
I agree Guly did ok and i thought DE ridder wasn't that bad,At least he won us the penalty.yes i agree Jay Rod's spot kick didnt have that Lambert authority about it but hey it did go over the line and they all count.good solid display by all the players in my book.

well done saints
You were obv watching a different game, Guly did very little wrong, he wasnt amazing but neither was anybody else
De Ridder was the disappointing one, just kept dribbling till he lost it and very few of his passes found their mark, shame as he has the right attributes but not the right footballing brain, can see why Adkins doesnt want to play him
J Rods penalty was poorly placed but well struck hence why it went it wouldnt say it was s**t though
Hope Corky is okay although didnt look good the way he went down
Good solid performance from most today
defiantly differing view from you on Guly. No guts no glory and no guts were shown he had a chance tonight to run the show and he did not. my view so there you have it
Why don't you show off your negativity with your clear dislike of a man in a Saints shirt? Or just pick on the positives like most do, sometimes things are best left unsaid, all this screams out is that you are a Guly hater and a moaner, sure you're not a blue or green fish?

Gazziniga-Made some excellent saves,caught and punched well.

Seaborne- Unsure at left back, poor distribution.

Hoiveld-Yoshida- both very steady.

Cork- Buzzed around but little impact.

Ward-Prowse- Little dynamo, looks like the new Paul Scholes.Great confidence and ability.

DeRidder- mazy runs few good crosses tired second half.

Chaplow- wrong position for him wasted on the wing.

Guly- playing in the hole,as always so frustrating,good shots and headers, failed to link up well.

Rodrigues- pacy, very well taken goal and pen, body language says he's dejected and out of sorts though .

On the whole Saints were the better side and deserved the win.

Nice to see Michael Antonio again happy memories of JTP at Wembley.

Good appraisal of the players display.i especially agree about Chaplow.no way is he a winger.he should be playing in the centre of mid field where his combatitive edge and hustle and bustle would be put to much better use.especially as now we have no Dean Hammond to boss things around.

funny how people see games differently,
just been reading the match report from the sheffield star.In the player ratings they give de ridder an 8 and
ward prowse chaplow and seaborne only a 6 with all the others getting a 7.

their best player was bywater the goalie
who they scored an 8.so we all see things differently at times.

a far as can see it was a good professional performance against a stubborn championship side and we went through.
job done!!

Some interesting comments displayed above. I must agree with those advocating the positivity though. We won't succeed in this league with a squad of just 15 or 16 first choice players and we need to ensure the whole squad is given opportunities, both to keep them motivated and for NA to assess their abilties (both physically and mentally). This alone is a good reason for taking the Cap Cup seriously.

On a separate strand, did anybody read that article about how we snatched Boruc away from Everton? Apparently he'd been training with them since last week but they were stalling over a contract. Should we read into this that Everton were not convinced he was up to it perhaps, or something else? Nevertheless, noting that we are playing Everton on Saturday, I wonder if it might be worth starting him as he is sure to want to make a point (or three for us!).

Dave Jones knows how to put a good cup run together.should have won the FA CUP in that match against Porpisemouth with Cardiff..And remember when he was managing Stockport County when they came to the Dell in the 90's as underdogs and beat the Saints.That performance helped him in the long run get the managers position at the Dell.Plus of course he brought with him to Saints from that steady eddy County team Paul Jones and Chris Marsden.Both of whom were terrific servants of the club.Last round his Owls put out Fulham and lots of the so called pundits in the sewer press were tipping his Sheffield club to pitch Saints out of the competition.
Those same boss eyed journalists are now concocting stories that Milan Mandarat will sack Jones and replace him with one harry ratknapp.

It is also clear that, despite his liking for long words, he is actually an extremely inarticulate buffoon. His posts read like those a schoolboy who is pretending to be an adult. He pulls all sorts of words out of the air, often in a completely inappropriate context, in the hope that they add some element of gravitas to his comment.

It is clear his words add no value in these threads. Ignore him and do not quote his posts as it only gives them more space.

There seem to be almost as many versions of last night as there are posters. Maybe it depends on where you see it from. I was in the middle of Kingsland, thought Jack Cork looked particularly good, covered the back four well and was always making himself available to get play moving forward. Seabourne looked a bit lost. For a while it seemed that nobody wanted to pass to him except Jos, and then he often gave it back to him. To be fair he manged to get it to De Ridder on a few occasions and although there is the problem of Steve's erratic final ball he was regularly wrongfooting 2 or 3 defenders and keeping the Northerners under pressure. He got to the byline on the left quite a bit more than Chaplow and Richardson managed between them, seemed to be a bit of confusion between them about who should do what. Defence generally solid apart from Seabourne who didn't look a very happy bunny at LB. Attack made chances but weren't clinical enough to do justice to them.

"Never ceases to amaze me that when faced with superior intellect, knowledge and experience, many people resort to abuse and slagging off."

What does that have to do with your posts? They are universally negative diatribes that merely betray your prejudices rather than any degree of "superior intellect".

You may see this as "abuse" or "slagging off" as I don't agree with you.

Instead just remember that if everyone else seems to be out of step with you there may be another, much more likely, explanation, namely that you're the one out of step.

What does that have to do with your posts? They are universally negative diatribes that merely betray your prejudices rather than any degree of "superior intellect". You may see this as "abuse" or "slagging off" as I don't agree with you. Instead just remember that if everyone else seems to be out of step with you there may be another, much more likely, explanation, namely that you're the one out of step. Velleity

I bet Sir Bobby Charlton has never bought a Man United in his life.
I am a bit sceptical about the Matt Le T story, with his work on Sky he would be sure to have Press Accreditation which would gain him access to that area should he chose to use it, if he chose to buy a ticket and sit with the rest of us, I am sure he did it because he wanted to.
If only I'd known it was really him at the match - and in the stands too of all the unlikely places!

I actually went up to him and said "Hey, you look just like Matt Le Tissier. What's your name mate?"

"Matt Le Tissier" he said.

And then (oh deary me) I said: "Whoa - that's an amazing coincidence."

I do feel such a fool now.

If true it is a terrible shame, great ambassador for not only saints but football in general. Loyalty is being phased out of the dictionary.
That's hilarious from someone who shows his loyalty by mercilessly attacking NA and NC regardless of what they do, time and time again.

D4mn you, Slugger, I was just about to write more or less the same thing.

Given our loyal service, we all deserve to be treated fairly by the club.

I don't think the club has got everything right (it seems to be pants at selling tickets right now) but I do like the fact that the money I (occasionally) stump up to watch a match at SMS isn't going to subsidise those, like Matt, who can not only afford their own ticket but a dozen more for their mates.

Of course, what the club could introduce is a scheme through which the price of a ticket is proportionate to the purchaser's intellect.

A wise sage like Confucious would, for example, have to fork out several hundred, while the likes of you and Bill would only have to pay a couple of quid each.

Me? I'd be a freebie, of course.

Oh, and Tebourba? Naturally, what he'd pay per ticket could have saved our friends in Southsea.

I've shown my loyalty since I was knee high to Brian O'Neill's rolled-down football socks. I've seen Saints from as far north as Hartlepool all the way south to Biel; I've tuned in to catch scores whilst sat on a banana box in the aisle of a bus in Indonesia and on the World Service in the early hours in Australia and New Zealand; in search of the score of a match that had just ended or had taken place the night before, I've fought my way through news stands at remote airports and driven to a Reuters telliprinter at a hotel in Dar es Salaam (several times); I cried my eyes out in Shetland whilst watching our relegation from the Prem 7 years ago and have 'evangelised' on the club's behalf all over the world. I take my two boys when I have a chance and bleed red and white.

How can you compare le tiss with Adkins and Cuban heels?
Le tiss devoted his playing career to us and had chances to move on, apart from Paine and channon there is know other player in our history who comes close.
Like I said Adkins with his back to back promotions is doing a sterling job but don't forget we are allowing him to develop as a manager.
Cortese, jury still out for me.

Highlight of the night.....having Matt Le Tissier sat 2 rows behind us in Itchen North and his reactions to Guly's one on one miss and J-Rods penalty...

Lowlight of the night seeing...Matt Le Tissier queuing up before the game to buy a ticket (fair play to him doing it) I think he deserves to be offered a complimentary ticket for any Saints game, after all, almost single handedly kept us in the top flight of English football for many years, without his goals I believe we wouldn't be at SMS now.

I bet Sir Bobby Charlton has never bought a Man United in his life.
Even more of a kick in the teeth seeing as there was only 10k in attendance.
If true it is a terrible shame, great ambassador for not only saints but football in general. Loyalty is being phased out of the dictionary.
That's hilarious from someone who shows his loyalty by mercilessly attacking NA and NC regardless of what they do, time and time again.
What loyalty do I need to show to nc, na?
Both are being paid extremely well and will have to go a long way to reach the echelon that le tiss has.
Adkins has proved his quality granted but le tiss done that for over 13 seasons.
What are you on?
I've shown my loyalty since I was knee high to Brian O'Neill's rolled-down football socks. I've seen Saints from as far north as Hartlepool all the way south to Biel; I've tuned in to catch scores whilst sat on a banana box in the aisle of a bus in Indonesia and on the World Service in the early hours in Australia and New Zealand; in search of the score of a match that had just ended or had taken place the night before, I've fought my way through news stands at remote airports and driven to a Reuters telliprinter at a hotel in Dar es Salaam (several times); I cried my eyes out in Shetland whilst watching our relegation from the Prem 7 years ago and have 'evangelised' on the club's behalf all over the world. I take my two boys when I have a chance and bleed red and white.

....................


........so?
So are you saying that you have done more for Southampton Fc than le tiss?
Your silence speaks volumes and yes he does deserve free entry. Or do we have to wait till he dies to appreciate him!

........so?
So are you saying that you have done more for Southampton Fc than le tiss?
No. I am simply saying that, having done my part, the club owes me nothing.

It's given me some of the best days of my life and, likewise, some of the worst.

I've sat at matches thinking this was money wasted and I've watched moments which have justified the entrance fee on their own.

On balance, it's a rollercoaster ride I wouldn't have missed for the world but it's one I've been loyally committed to at (like us all) some considerable expense.

So, it's been a sort of 'contract'. I pay, I get something back; the club and I, we're even.

Matt did his job and a bl00dy fine job he did. No, he didn't keep Saints up single-handedly as some suggest; other players did a fine job alongside him. For that job, he signed a contract and was paid.

Can you show me the bit in his contract which says his brilliant (and loyal) service will be rewarded with any amount of free tickets to any match he chooses? His reward is our gratitude and the respect we all have for him. There are many other former players (and current ones) for whom I feel the same.

so pan handler', a unique player like le tiss who, I would like to remind you spent his entire career at our club (even benali went to forest) entertained like only a handfull could does not deserve hospitality from our club even when only a 3rd full?

You don't need to show loyalty to NA and NC. However, that is not the same as saying you need to show total knee-jerk disloyalty in the way you do.

What are you on?
You don't need to show loyalty to NA and NC. However, that is not the same as saying you need to show total knee-jerk disloyalty in the way you do.

I bet Sir Bobby Charlton has never bought a Man United in his life.
I am a bit sceptical about the Matt Le T story, with his work on Sky he would be sure to have Press Accreditation which would gain him access to that area should he chose to use it, if he chose to buy a ticket and sit with the rest of us, I am sure he did it because he wanted to.
If only I'd known it was really him at the match - and in the stands too of all the unlikely places!

I actually went up to him and said "Hey, you look just like Matt Le Tissier. What's your name mate?"

"Matt Le Tissier" he said.

And then (oh deary me) I said: "Whoa - that's an amazing coincidence."

I do feel such a fool now.
What you should have said was "Oy Big Nose is that really you?" If you were wrong you wouldn't have felt such a nit.

Both are being paid extremely well and will have to go a long way to reach the echelon that le tiss has.
Adkins has proved his quality granted but le tiss done that for over 13 seasons.
What are you on?
I've shown my loyalty since I was knee high to Brian O'Neill's rolled-down football socks. I've seen Saints from as far north as Hartlepool all the way south to Biel; I've tuned in to catch scores whilst sat on a banana box in the aisle of a bus in Indonesia and on the World Service in the early hours in Australia and New Zealand; in search of the score of a match that had just ended or had taken place the night before, I've fought my way through news stands at remote airports and driven to a Reuters telliprinter at a hotel in Dar es Salaam (several times); I cried my eyes out in Shetland whilst watching our relegation from the Prem 7 years ago and have 'evangelised' on the club's behalf all over the world. I take my two boys when I have a chance and bleed red and white.

Ooops I mean wow!

Your must have canine genes in you Stras. Only dogs are that loyal.

Mind you, my Auntie Elspeth is always telling me that I shouldn't accept my spaniel's admiration for me as conclusive proof that I'm wonderful.

Check this Stras: If you keep walking into rooms and then forget why you walked in and if you always turn round three times before you lie down in bed - I think you are a dog.

I don't think there could possibly be an argument on whether le god should be a guest for all games?
It's a no brainer.
Can't you read?

Clearly there IS an argument on that, as everyone but you on this thread seems to disagree with you.
Poor editing, should read "...as everyone but you on this thread seems to think he SHOULD pay"
lol , marcus had a season ticket as does nicola .......... everyone should pay .
Cuban heels has ground and cleaning staff carry out chores around his plot, whose paying for that. Fackin cheek
Well, I can speak from personal experience on this one. He isn't getting it free of charge.

So if I were you I'd be VERY careful of your clear implication that he doesn't pay.

On second thoughts, if you believe it, say it rather than implying it and live with the consequences.

Maybe not but le tiss joined Eastleigh so not to play a competitive game against us!
He could have played at a lower level and took the money.

Nope, you said "whose paying for that?"

Be clear, who are you claiming is paying for Nicola Cortese's cleaning and gardening at his home?

If you're not prepared to say it, stop implying there's some sort of impropriety, as it's completely, totally and utterly false to claim there is. And I do know.

Lowlight of the night seeing...Matt Le Tissier queuing up before the game to buy a ticket (fair play to him doing it) I think he deserves to be offered a complimentary ticket for any Saints game, after all, almost single handedly kept us in the top flight of English football for many years, without his goals I believe we wouldn't be at SMS now.

I bet Sir Bobby Charlton has never bought a Man United in his life.
Even more of a kick in the teeth seeing as there was only 10k in attendance.
If true it is a terrible shame, great ambassador for not only saints but football in general. Loyalty is being phased out of the dictionary.
That's hilarious from someone who shows his loyalty by mercilessly attacking NA and NC regardless of what they do, time and time again.
What loyalty do I need to show to nc, na?
Both are being paid extremely well and will have to go a long way to reach the echelon that le tiss has.
Adkins has proved his quality granted but le tiss done that for over 13 seasons.
What are you on?
I've shown my loyalty since I was knee high to Brian O'Neill's rolled-down football socks. I've seen Saints from as far north as Hartlepool all the way south to Biel; I've tuned in to catch scores whilst sat on a banana box in the aisle of a bus in Indonesia and on the World Service in the early hours in Australia and New Zealand; in search of the score of a match that had just ended or had taken place the night before, I've fought my way through news stands at remote airports and driven to a Reuters telliprinter at a hotel in Dar es Salaam (several times); I cried my eyes out in Shetland whilst watching our relegation from the Prem 7 years ago and have 'evangelised' on the club's behalf all over the world. I take my two boys when I have a chance and bleed red and white.

....................


........so?
Bow!

Ooops I mean wow!

Your must have canine genes in you Stras. Only dogs are that loyal.

Mind you, my Auntie Elspeth is always telling me that I shouldn't accept my spaniel's admiration for me as conclusive proof that I'm wonderful.

Check this Stras: If you keep walking into rooms and then forget why you walked in and if you always turn round three times before you lie down in bed - I think you are a dog.
Just checked that one out with my owner - I mean, WIFE - and she patted me on the head, told me I was a good boy and then ordered me to go back to my basket.

Oh! I better go, she's just slapped a collar round my neck and is standing with a dog lead in her hand, winking at me, saying, 'wanna come walkies big boy?' WOOF!!! WOOF!!!

And I have proven that at the very least one of the pointless insults you throw at NC is totally, completely and utterly false.

If you restricted yourself to criticising NC for football-related reasons, you might just be tolerable, but your witch-hunt against them for every single thing they do (even stuff you've made up, as above) is boring beyond belief.

With respect slug, I haven't called you a fool for not agreeing with regards to the le tiss debate.
It is just my opinion that some one who has played only for saints, been selected for England whilst playing for saints, shunned other maybe more attractive clubs, entertained us, made us proud of, attracted other supporters to us, and captained us etc etc should be given hospitality for all home games.
Maybe more boxes, tickets in hospitality would be sold on the back of getting the chance of exchanging views with him?
It's sad times if he, channon and Paine didn't all receive this treatment...... Imho

With respect slug, I haven't called you a fool for not agreeing with regards to the le tiss debate.
It is just my opinion that some one who has played only for saints, been selected for England whilst playing for saints, shunned other maybe more attractive clubs, entertained us, made us proud of, attracted other supporters to us, and captained us etc etc should be given hospitality for all home games.
Maybe more boxes, tickets in hospitality would be sold on the back of getting the chance of exchanging views with him?
It's sad times if he, channon and Paine didn't all receive this treatment...... Imho
i apologise for the "fool" bit then but i was trying to make the point that you are frequently bleating about how your opinions get shouted down but then go on to shout others down........... i don't agree with you and will leave it at that.

Do I appear like some one who is remotely bothered if my opinions are agreed with? It's a debate, I forwarded my view without insult.

Well having just read through all the posts I realise I should have bought a handbag with me! Tin hat territory or what!!
Personally, I wish I'd seen MLT in the queue. I would gladly have bought his ticket for him as it would be the least I could do considering all the loyalty he showed to the club and therefore me through the years.
I think some players should get free hospitality , regardless of whether they can afford it or not as thats not really the issue. I think it should depend on length of service and based accordingly.
The reason. We are Southampton. We are family and family is not just about now. Its about the past the present and the future. Our long serving legends should be honoured. For me its simply a matter of respect

Both are being paid extremely well and will have to go a long way to reach the echelon that le tiss has.

Thanks, Halo. I was fortunate enough to travel a lot in younger years, often for work.

My point is, for all of us, it's in our blood, wherever we find ourselves and it's something we 'do' without expecting to be paid or getting favours.

I've huge respect for the antipodean Saints who wake in the night to tune in.

I'd love NC to call me and say, 'you're a top fan, have a couple of tickets for the next match'. BUT, there are thousands of far more devoted fans and loyal players than me and, as Slugger says, where do you draw the line. Furthermore, while I understand your point about respect and rewarding loyalty, someone has to pay for any freebies that are handed out and most ex-players aren't short of a bob or two. Would I buy Matt a ticket as a thank you? No. He can afford it more than me. (Heck! He could use the betting money he made from THAT throw-in!) But, I'd offer him a beer if the opportunity arose and, no matter what faux pas he has made in the past, he will always have my respect and gratitude.

If anything, given that many ex-players support good causes, maybe give ALL former players and managers (okay, maybe not Ali Dia or 'Arry) the right to ask for ONE PAIR of free tickets per season which, rather than for their own use, they can allocate to a 'worthy' person connected with their good cause.

That would be a 'thank you' freebie I’d be happy to support.

The homophobic jibe is out of order, it undermines your arguments. I think you are mixing up loyalty with respect. As I see it, you have issues with NC and NA over a side matter, as a loyal supporter, you should be asking whether the Club is and has recently been run successfully, not whether individuals from the past are to be given some sort of priviledged treatment. When NC took charge it was apparent that the Club was being sucked dry by a large number of hangers-on, money that should have been invested in the future was going down the Corporate drain. So NC made a decision to cut all of the sponging out across the board. That included him buying his own tickets for games e.t.c. No exceptions were allowed, hence the Le Tissier situation. We all respect and love our past heroes, but the line had to be drawn somewhere. You may not have been aware of the situation as the Club makes a point of not washing its dirty linen in public, but it was discussed early doors of the administration. Yes, I agree our heroes like Le God and Mick Channon et. al. should be given something in respect for what they have done in the past, for the moment it will not happen, unless there is a change of heart. This should not be the cause of a personal hate campaign because individuals don't like it. You could try writing an articulate letter to the Club asking for their reasons and making it clear how you feel, you might get a reasonable response, ranting about on here where you won't get any answers is not the way to go, think about it.

What next existing players not selected in squad to pay too![/p][/quote]that ain't name calling . it's my opinnion ........ i thought you were a champion of people's opinnions ?[/p][/quote]get out of that ![/p][/quote]You have proved that your opinion' doesn't account for much so I'm not fussed either way[/p][/quote]so yours is more important ?[/p][/quote]Just an opinion[/p][/quote]so why does mine not account for much ?[/p][/quote]With respect slug, I haven't called you a fool for not agreeing with regards to the le tiss debate. It is just my opinion that some one who has played only for saints, been selected for England whilst playing for saints, shunned other maybe more attractive clubs, entertained us, made us proud of, attracted other supporters to us, and captained us etc etc should be given hospitality for all home games. Maybe more boxes, tickets in hospitality would be sold on the back of getting the chance of exchanging views with him? It's sad times if he, channon and Paine didn't all receive this treatment...... Imho[/p][/quote]i apologise for the "fool" bit then but i was trying to make the point that you are frequently bleating about how your opinions get shouted down but then go on to shout others down........... i don't agree with you and will leave it at that.[/p][/quote]Do me a favour, read back posts. Do I appear like some one who is remotely bothered if my opinions are agreed with? It's a debate, I forwarded my view without insult. I've always been shot down on here, if it was a concern would I return? I don't bleat, others do that...... Bhaaaaa ;D[/p][/quote]Wouldn't it be wiser to wonder why you keep getting shot down, maybe it is because you have got it wrong in most peoples eyes, why do you think that is?[/p][/quote]I am very bored sorry tired now. Can the last 1 in shut the gate, if you feel anything touching your ar5e don't panic it's just gayietty's nose[/p][/quote]The homophobic jibe is out of order, it undermines your arguments. I think you are mixing up loyalty with respect. As I see it, you have issues with NC and NA over a side matter, as a loyal supporter, you should be asking whether the Club is and has recently been run successfully, not whether individuals from the past are to be given some sort of priviledged treatment. When NC took charge it was apparent that the Club was being sucked dry by a large number of hangers-on, money that should have been invested in the future was going down the Corporate drain. So NC made a decision to cut all of the sponging out across the board. That included him buying his own tickets for games e.t.c. No exceptions were allowed, hence the Le Tissier situation. We all respect and love our past heroes, but the line had to be drawn somewhere. You may not have been aware of the situation as the Club makes a point of not washing its dirty linen in public, but it was discussed early doors of the administration. Yes, I agree our heroes like Le God and Mick Channon et. al. should be given something in respect for what they have done in the past, for the moment it will not happen, unless there is a change of heart. This should not be the cause of a personal hate campaign because individuals don't like it. You could try writing an articulate letter to the Club asking for their reasons and making it clear how you feel, you might get a reasonable response, ranting about on here where you won't get any answers is not the way to go, think about it.

I can't believe that Mattie, bearing in mind his unsurpassed contribution to the Saints and the fact that he is now a very influential presenter with Sky Sports, hasn't been given a life time free pass in to St Mary's.
Maybe NC hasn't forgiven him for mounting a Saints takeover.
Short sightedness on NC's part? --- wouldn't be the first time.
