Saints beaten by Celta Vigo in friendly shootout

Gaston Ramirez in action against Celta Vigo

Jay Rodriguez on the ball against Celta Vigo

Saints lost their penultimate game of pre-season on penalties after playing out a goalless draw with Celta Vigo.

Both sides hit the bar during a match of very few chances and the game went straight to spot kicks at the end of 90 minutes.

Saints managed to score just one of their three efforts through Steven Davis while Celta Vigo converted all four of theirs to lift the Torofeo Memorial Quinocoho trophy at the Balaidos.

Interestingly given there is just one pre-season game now remaining Mauricio Pochettino made nine changes at half time, though he did at least get a first 45 minutes each for Maya Yoshida and Gaston Ramirez.

Saints had the better of the first half.

Jay Rodriguez probably should have given them the lead when he broke clear on 22 minutes but uncharacteristically fired wide while Rickie Lambert had a goal ruled out for offside.

Celta Vigo threatened rarely but almost broke the deadlock on eight minutes as Andreu Fontas drilled a long range effort against the bar.

The second half was something of a stalemate until the final stages as both sides struggled to create any genuine chances.

Guly do Prado twice threatened in the final ten minutes, firstly jinking onto his right foot inside the area but shooting across goal and wide before getting to a James Ward-Prowse corner and glancing a header against the crossbar.

With the game goalless at full time it went straight to penalties.

Celta Vigo score all four of theirs while Guly do Prado blazed over the bar and Ward-Prowse saw his saved as Saints lost the shootout 4-1. Only Steven Davis was able to successfully convert from the spot for his side.

Saints: K Davis (Boruc 45), Chambers, Lovren (Fonte 45), Yoshida (Hooiveld 45), Shaw, Wanyama (Cork 45), Schneiderlin (S Davis 45), Ramírez (Ward-Prowse 45), Lallana (Do Prado 45), Rodriguez (Puncheon 45), Lambert (Mayuka 45).

Celta Vigo: Yoel (Álvarez 45), Mallo (Castro 71), Cabral (Vila 59), Fontas (Tuñez 59), Toni (Bellvis 59), Oubiña (López 59), Rafinha (Orellana 16), Fernández (Madinda 59), Krohn-Dehli (Rodriguez 59), Dias (Fernández 59), Nolito (Goldar 59).

If Guly can improve this season I reckon we've got enough cover in attack. We need a winger and the number 11 shirt is still vacant so maybe MoPo thinks the same. So, in summary, I blame...Zammo from Grange Hill for just saying "no". By the way Echo-why is the text on this page so small and why do you let me write this drivel, then have to sign in therefore losing it all, then go back and start all over again?

Holy smokes, I've just seen the pimpey score! 18,000 clowns turned up too. I can't wait to see their next home attendance. This has amused me greatly. Favourites to win Division 4? Not likely. "but we own our own club!"
I'd rather the Liebherrs owned my club in the Premier League than owning my own club in the 4th tier. Mind you, the bar staff would be better looking and the half time pies cooked by Michel Roux.

We definitely need a quality striker or I think we will struggle to beat teams. I still not sure about Jay Rodriguez. He's good at holding the ball up and interlinking play but never think he will score many goals. Guly do Pardo will never cut it in the Premiership for me. We need a proven goal striker to be up front with Rickie Lambert.

looks like its kelv at No. 2 with gazza as a good 3rd choice. I think gazza is a good keeper but still needs to develop and having AB and KD to learn from must be good for him. lets be honest though we will not be seeing the shambolic keeper changes we had last season

Think it's taken as fact we need a finisher.

But, think we also could do with a good wide player with a bit more experience to help out and also help develop the youngsters maybe?
How about a playmaker in midfield who can share the load with goals?

However, I do think we are making progress and we're not that far off, the squad just needs tweaking. Expensive as that tweak may be!

I think Saints need 2 top class strikers as I do not think that Lambert is Premier League material. The only times when he looked capable was when Lanna was injured and he captained the team. It does not look as if his level of fitness, speed, or his ability to make half chances into goals are up to Premier League top striker standard. I appreciate what he contributed to the Saints promotions from League 1 and The Championship, but the Premier League requires more than top ability in these lower leagues to be a successful striker.

That's why Poch goes for the "pressing" game - to iron out the wrinkles!

I followed the game on twitter it sounds like the Saints had the best of both halves. The problem once again is the inability to convert good open play and possession into goals. There's no point IMO in blaming Guly he missed his penalty - JWP saw his saved - that's life, the lottery of penalty shoot outs. I think the starting 11 are probably the starting 11 that MP will go with now, save for Clyne who is injured. It will be interesting to see if Chambers will take Clyne's position or whether the displaced Cork will? It would be an interesting prospect for Saints to have two 18 year old backs facing Premiership opposition! How many clubs have done that? On this note I am surprised that Saints haven't yet got experienced cover for these two positions - it seems that Fox has had a good pre-season. Will he in fact start at left back or will he be rotated with Shaw?

I would very much like to see a quality proved striker brought in as that IMO is where we are seriously lacking and this could be the teams Achilles heel!

Looking forward to Saturday!

If Rickie missed a penalty it would have been the lead headline not only on here but on the ten o'clock news! Looks like Rickie was off at half time for Mayuka. Steve Davis scored his and Guly and JWP missed. We didn't need to take any more having already lost. Boruc is our first choice keeper and rightly so, but give me Kelv when it does to pens.

I doubt that very much. I don't think Kelv has played until now so not had the chance to stake a claim. Boruc will be first choice but at some stage we need to bring Gazza through otherwise he won't have the game time to improve. Training is all well and good but match day is very different as Bart found out.

If Kelv is second choice then Gazza should go out on loan for some valuable match experience.

I know it was only a friendly and someone posted a link to a stream so I could watch it!
The facts are we missed two goalden opportunities in the first half. J Rod did all the hard work only to shoot wde. Lambert had a free header at the back post with the goal at his mercy - and didn't finish. It's all very weel saying "it was a friendly" - but my biggest fear is in The Prem you get two or three chances - and have to take them!
At the back we looked at bit shakey at times too - but for their finishing we could have been behind a couple of times too.
First half we looked lathargic (to use a word again) but in the second half with Puncheon, JWP and Davis on we moved the ball far more quickly and looked more threatening. Fear for Mayaka - he was always offside! Even with the faster movement he was too quick for our midfield to feed the ball through.
Chambers looked very able at RB, Shaw took a kick towards the end (not sure how bad but Fox came on for him). Clyne may be out for weeks as he hasn't featured hence not going to be match fit - thanfully Chambers looks more than able to cover for him - may even keep him out? Lovren and Yoshida look capable - with Fonte and Hoovield providing good cover. Midfield I wonder who will get the nod? JWP adds energy, Davis is also a decent player, Cork adds some stability - Wanyama didn't seem to do that much to me - perhaps he's still settling in. Morgan is the only name on the sheet for me.
I do worry about our ability to scare teams in front of goal. Lallana, Puncheon, Ramirez and Rodrigues. All technically gifted but lack the killer touch in front of goal. Rickie is a talisman and creates space for others but also can score things out of nothing given a half chance. Quality striker - not sure where he fits in. Oh for another MLT to slot in - but that luxury is not available.
2-weeks away from the first game - and I still can't decide midfield or up front. We do lack pace end of - JRod has it - but does lack the composure. Puncheon has it but he's all left foot. Mayaka has pace - but seems to have a problem with the offside rule!
To win you need to score goals against top international defenders - and goalkeepers. Really concerned!
Next week against Real Sociead we need to play our first eleven for most of the game. Start making substitutions after 75-80-mins otherwise a full 90-mins at West Brom will beyond them!
Moan over - really 4-1 I like the score from Not Arf Krap!!

I'd rather the Liebherrs owned my club in the Premier League than owning my own club in the 4th tier. Mind you, the bar staff would be better looking and the half time pies cooked by Michel Roux.
THIS is a really important post. We seriously need to address the pie issue at St Mary's. Man City have just called in Jamie Oliver to redesign their pie 'offering' and spent millions developing the kitchens to serve his vision. I think that if the Bale deal goes through then we should spend our unexpected windfall on pie facilities. The only question is which chef do we call in? Delia's taken (and, furthermore, she's a total pr1ck) so I reckon we should aim straight for the top and put in a sneaky in for Rick Stein. Legend.
If you got Rick Stein in then it would all be fish pies. My son has difficulty putting away a chicken balti pie without making a right pig's ear of it all, so if he had a Rick Stein special he would end up pinging king prawns and scallops all over the people in front of us. Nightmare.

I know it was only a friendly and someone posted a link to a stream so I could watch it!
The facts are we missed two goalden opportunities in the first half. J Rod did all the hard work only to shoot wde. Lambert had a free header at the back post with the goal at his mercy - and didn't finish. It's all very weel saying "it was a friendly" - but my biggest fear is in The Prem you get two or three chances - and have to take them!
At the back we looked at bit shakey at times too - but for their finishing we could have been behind a couple of times too.
First half we looked lathargic (to use a word again) but in the second half with Puncheon, JWP and Davis on we moved the ball far more quickly and looked more threatening. Fear for Mayaka - he was always offside! Even with the faster movement he was too quick for our midfield to feed the ball through.
Chambers looked very able at RB, Shaw took a kick towards the end (not sure how bad but Fox came on for him). Clyne may be out for weeks as he hasn't featured hence not going to be match fit - thanfully Chambers looks more than able to cover for him - may even keep him out? Lovren and Yoshida look capable - with Fonte and Hoovield providing good cover. Midfield I wonder who will get the nod? JWP adds energy, Davis is also a decent player, Cork adds some stability - Wanyama didn't seem to do that much to me - perhaps he's still settling in. Morgan is the only name on the sheet for me.
I do worry about our ability to scare teams in front of goal. Lallana, Puncheon, Ramirez and Rodrigues. All technically gifted but lack the killer touch in front of goal. Rickie is a talisman and creates space for others but also can score things out of nothing given a half chance. Quality striker - not sure where he fits in. Oh for another MLT to slot in - but that luxury is not available.
2-weeks away from the first game - and I still can't decide midfield or up front. We do lack pace end of - JRod has it - but does lack the composure. Puncheon has it but he's all left foot. Mayaka has pace - but seems to have a problem with the offside rule!
To win you need to score goals against top international defenders - and goalkeepers. Really concerned!
Next week against Real Sociead we need to play our first eleven for most of the game. Start making substitutions after 75-80-mins otherwise a full 90-mins at West Brom will beyond them!
Moan over - really 4-1 I like the score from Not Arf Krap!!
I think the first half team ,except for Boruc in goal and Clyne if he is fit, is probably the nearest to the starting eleven for the WBA game.

You must have just got in from a good night out by the sounds of it. The alcohol or drugs or both are clouding your judgement. Go and get your head down and drink plenty of coffee when you get up. You'll be right as rain later and your brain will be engaging propely again.
Your memory ( If you are a real Saints fan) will recall Rickie Lambert scoring 15 goals and having numerous assists to his name last season in........yes you've guessed it.....the Premier League!
Oh and make sure you drink plenty of water as well
COYR FOADP WTFILN
I can remember Lambert scoring next to none in the run in as well when it was really needed to finish top 10. He doesn't work hard enough, he's too old.
Yeah but nobody really takes you seriously when it comes to football related debates as you often talk out of your @rse. Towards the end of last season Jay Rodriguez and other players needed to weigh in with a few goals for which they had their chances but didn't take them........and a lot of the chances were created by guess who??
Two players scoring 15 plus in one season is what's missing. Rickie Lambert does and could help another striker score goals as well.

Stein is a fish specialist, we'll have none of that around here. If you want pies and Oliver isn't available then it's Gary Rhodes all day long even though he is a total tool.

On the subject of the skates leaving early, couple that with their booing the team last season and the myths are exposed. They try and tell us that they are more passionate. Not true. The truth is they are so dire they always contract back to their hardcore 7000 fans who are indeed passionate. When you add a few thousand others in that's when you will see the booing and the early departures. No different at SMS. When we were down to our hardcore 21000 in the lower leagues we had more atmosphere than when we have 32000 now. The reason is the extra fans are less passionate or watching the away team or just keen to watch Prem footie and not as dedicated as the rest of us. But we need them, it keeps the money rolling in. That is what the skates have never understood - but that is because they are exceptionally stupid.

Totally agree...in the case of the skates, their delusion takes the form of complete and utter stupidity.

The subject of pies is a contentious one. Personally, I think Plesteds should get the contract. A quality standard, exceptional quantity of filling and made in Southampton.....we should set up a campaign to this effect right away!

Hello matey. What happened to the 'we're going to rip up League two' and 'we're favourites to win the league'. Are you going to overlook your claims and stick your head in the sand as if nothing had happened? Isn't that what you've been doing for years?

Exactly. 2 players scoring 15 goals each plus is a must if we want to be in the top half of the table.

I'm no tactician but I remember Nigel saying how he wanted a revolving midfield with different players taking it in turn to push forward depending on who was at the front of the diamond at any given time. MoPo seems to be persuing a similar if more sofiscated version with a high pressing game that will throw different players forward at different times. Maybe the importance of an out an out striker is much less than in conventional 442. As I said before Barca and Spain, who play a similar game, have been known to play without a single striker on the park and still won games.

We need a proven goal striker to be up front with Rickie Lambert.
"Jay Rodriguez probably should have given them the lead when he broke clear on 22 minutes but uncharacteristically fired wide". Seems to me there is too much of this kind of thing - perhaps he lacks the killer instinct that Ricky clearly has. Just dot it, Jay - you know it makes sense!

Is it true that Portsmouth once challenged Oxford to a boat race?

Rumour has it that the poopey poly crew tried secretly strapping an inboard motor (which they funded on credit) to their boat.

The vessel sank without trace and the inboard motor suppler never got paid.

Oxford went on to be very good at rowing and found a worthy and trustworthy opponent in Cambridge.

Portsmouth formed a football club.

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens. They'd already increased the playing budget before the season started as a result of higher ticket sales and pressure from the manager. They will factionalise between those demanding investment and those wanting to avoid the continuous mistake of the past. I think gates will fall off leaving them even less room for manoeuvre. It truely is a delicious prospect.

I take your point but I don't think you can just invent a rival it's built up over decades and heightened by derbies and incidents between the two. It's also about rivalry between two competing cities and manifests on the football pitch, it's not just about the football.

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens. They'd already increased the playing budget before the season started as a result of higher ticket sales and pressure from the manager. They will factionalise between those demanding investment and those wanting to avoid the continuous mistake of the past. I think gates will fall off leaving them even less room for manoeuvre. It truely is a delicious prospect.
It's hard for clubs in this current climate, local teams such as Sholing and totton have been hit badly, Sholing even opted to drop down a division. Pompey will be relegated again I've no doubt about that, the whole situation with them is so messy.
Who is to be our new rival, you can't take Pompey seriously any more.
I take your point but I don't think you can just invent a rival it's built up over decades and heightened by derbies and incidents between the two. It's also about rivalry between two competing cities and manifests on the football pitch, it's not just about the football.
We won't meet Pompey again for a long time.. Albeit for the odd cup game here and there. Shame then we won't have a local derby.. Undisputed kings of the south!

I seriously doubt that 5TBU has any loyalty to Pompey. He’s probably been on the News’ site for the last couple of hours winding up Frattonisers about yesterday’s result or, perhaps, on twitter threatening to do something ghastly to Mary Beard.
.
By the way, Pompey will bounce back. Despite the ancient curse that has destined them to be run by appallingly bad administrations for eternity, they are as resilient as cockroaches.

Indeed. Although until their promotion to the Prem we never played them anyway. We do not have a long history of playing each other regularly which is why the rivalry is more intense than Newcastle Sunderland, Ipswich Norwich, Arsenal Tottenham etc as they play frequently.

Is it true that Portsmouth once challenged Oxford to a boat race?

Rumour has it that the poopey poly crew tried secretly strapping an inboard motor (which they funded on credit) to their boat.

The vessel sank without trace and the inboard motor suppler never got paid.

Oxford went on to be very good at rowing and found a worthy and trustworthy opponent in Cambridge.

Portsmouth formed a football club.
Really? Do they have a football club there. Where do they play?

As someone, who over many years ,has accumulated "STUFF", things I have bought, things given to me, a couple of business's many cars and property's even had a share in a racehorse once. I "owned" all of these things they were mine to do as I wish with them i.e. sell, donate to charity give to friends and relatives I had complete control.
Could some one explain to the deluded pompey fans who DONATED £1000 to the trust they do not own squat.
Unless some one out there knows different, I think the H.N.W. are the true owners of pompey
The idiots who donated money own nothing and come the end of the season will realise the money went elsewhere
Also what odds on the trust asking for more money at some point during the season?

I'd rather the Liebherrs owned my club in the Premier League than owning my own club in the 4th tier. Mind you, the bar staff would be better looking and the half time pies cooked by Michel Roux.
THIS is a really important post. We seriously need to address the pie issue at St Mary's. Man City have just called in Jamie Oliver to redesign their pie 'offering' and spent millions developing the kitchens to serve his vision. I think that if the Bale deal goes through then we should spend our unexpected windfall on pie facilities. The only question is which chef do we call in? Delia's taken (and, furthermore, she's a total pr1ck) so I reckon we should aim straight for the top and put in a sneaky in for Rick Stein. Legend.
If you got Rick Stein in then it would all be fish pies. My son has difficulty putting away a chicken balti pie without making a right pig's ear of it all, so if he had a Rick Stein special he would end up pinging king prawns and scallops all over the people in front of us. Nightmare.
He's just been around India! I reckon he could knock out a world class chicken balti.
I prefer his chicken tarka.

It's like a chicken tikka, just a little 'otter.

I'll get my coat.

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens. They'd already increased the playing budget before the season started as a result of higher ticket sales and pressure from the manager. They will factionalise between those demanding investment and those wanting to avoid the continuous mistake of the past. I think gates will fall off leaving them even less room for manoeuvre. It truely is a delicious prospect.
It's hard for clubs in this current climate, local teams such as Sholing and totton have been hit badly, Sholing even opted to drop down a division. Pompey will be relegated again I've no doubt about that, the whole situation with them is so messy.
Who is to be our new rival, you can't take Pompey seriously any more.
I take your point but I don't think you can just invent a rival it's built up over decades and heightened by derbies and incidents between the two. It's also about rivalry between two competing cities and manifests on the football pitch, it's not just about the football.
We won't meet Pompey again for a long time.. Albeit for the odd cup game here and there. Shame then we won't have a local derby.. Undisputed kings of the south!
I seriously doubt that 5TBU has any loyalty to Pompey. He’s probably been on the News’ site for the last couple of hours winding up Frattonisers about yesterday’s result or, perhaps, on twitter threatening to do something ghastly to Mary Beard.

My divorce cost more than the PST raised from their entire fan base. They will be under pressure to spend more and if gates fall away they will have to return to the 'shareholders' - this is when the divisions that are always just below the surface will bubble up again. It's pure comedy gold!

We won't meet Pompey again for a long time.. Albeit for the odd cup game here and there. Shame then we won't have a local derby.. Undisputed kings of the south!
I seriously doubt that 5TBU has any loyalty to Pompey. He’s probably been on the News’ site for the last couple of hours winding up Frattonisers about yesterday’s result or, perhaps, on twitter threatening to do something ghastly to Mary Beard.
.
By the way, Pompey will bounce back. Despite the ancient curse that has destined them to be run by appallingly bad administrations for eternity, they are as resilient as cockroaches.
I'm not so sure. I think there is a possibility of a set of circumstances this season that could finally see an end to the parasites. It's unlikely but not impossible. Here's hoping!
As someone, who over many years ,has accumulated "STUFF", things I have bought, things given to me, a couple of business's many cars and property's even had a share in a racehorse once.

Could some one explain to the deluded pompey fans who DONATED £1000 to the trust they do not own squat.
Unless some one out there knows different, I think the H.N.W. are the true owners of pompey

I'd rather the Liebherrs owned my club in the Premier League than owning my own club in the 4th tier. Mind you, the bar staff would be better looking and the half time pies cooked by Michel Roux.
THIS is a really important post. We seriously need to address the pie issue at St Mary's. Man City have just called in Jamie Oliver to redesign their pie 'offering' and spent millions developing the kitchens to serve his vision. I think that if the Bale deal goes through then we should spend our unexpected windfall on pie facilities. The only question is which chef do we call in? Delia's taken (and, furthermore, she's a total pr1ck) so I reckon we should aim straight for the top and put in a sneaky in for Rick Stein. Legend.
Certainly gives us food for thought.

Is it true that Portsmouth once challenged Oxford to a boat race?

Rumour has it that the poopey poly crew tried secretly strapping an inboard motor (which they funded on credit) to their boat.

The vessel sank without trace and the inboard motor suppler never got paid.

Oxford went on to be very good at rowing and found a worthy and trustworthy opponent in Cambridge.

Portsmouth formed a football club.
Really? Do they have a football club there. Where do they play?
Poopy Park

Misidentification, I have been slumming it in 30+ degree C Spain, hi boys I'm back, waht I want to know is, if they knew that there was a penalty shoot out, why did they take Lambo off at half time, I suspect a lack of tactical awareness here.

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens. They'd already increased the playing budget before the season started as a result of higher ticket sales and pressure from the manager. They will factionalise between those demanding investment and those wanting to avoid the continuous mistake of the past. I think gates will fall off leaving them even less room for manoeuvre. It truely is a delicious prospect.
It's hard for clubs in this current climate, local teams such as Sholing and totton have been hit badly, Sholing even opted to drop down a division. Pompey will be relegated again I've no doubt about that, the whole situation with them is so messy.
Who is to be our new rival, you can't take Pompey seriously any more.
I take your point but I don't think you can just invent a rival it's built up over decades and heightened by derbies and incidents between the two. It's also about rivalry between two competing cities and manifests on the football pitch, it's not just about the football.
We won't meet Pompey again for a long time.. Albeit for the odd cup game here and there. Shame then we won't have a local derby.. Undisputed kings of the south!
I seriously doubt that 5TBU has any loyalty to Pompey. He’s probably been on the News’ site for the last couple of hours winding up Frattonisers about yesterday’s result or, perhaps, on twitter threatening to do something ghastly to Mary Beard.
.
By the way, Pompey will bounce back. Despite the ancient curse that has destined them to be run by appallingly bad administrations for eternity, they are as resilient as cockroaches.
I'm not so sure. I think there is a possibility of a set of circumstances this season that could finally see an end to the parasites. It's unlikely but not impossible. Here's hoping!
As someone, who over many years ,has accumulated "STUFF", things I have bought, things given to me, a couple of business's many cars and property's even had a share in a racehorse once. I "owned" all of these things they were mine to do as I wish with them i.e. sell, donate to charity give to friends and relatives I had complete control.
Could some one explain to the deluded pompey fans who DONATED £1000 to the trust they do not own squat.
Unless some one out there knows different, I think the H.N.W. are the true owners of pompey
The idiots who donated money own nothing and come the end of the season will realise the money went elsewhere
Also what odds on the trust asking for more money at some point during the season?
My divorce cost more than the PST raised from their entire fan base. They will be under pressure to spend more and if gates fall away they will have to return to the 'shareholders' - this is when the divisions that are always just below the surface will bubble up again. It's pure comedy gold!
My divorce beats your divorce!!!... still we live and laff...
Ouch! I've just had an offer accepted on a house that if it goes through will mean I have an illustrious neighbour for my son to have a kick about with. 'Right lads, I'll be Adam, son you can be Gaston and err suppose you might as well be Rickie.... '

Living in the shadow of the great Pompey?

Really?

Where are you now? .....and where are we?

Think the phrase you're looking for is has beens!

We're financially secure, well organised (on and off the field) and on the rise.
We are looking at VERY exciting times ahead. We're not doing a Leeds Utd, but we are making great strides whilst being prudent. You can see how far we've come (on and off the pitch) in a short space of time, and what is more, we are laying firm foundations in the process!
Whenever (hopefully not for a very long time!) the current regime depart, we will NOT collapse as we now have those foundations. But we WILL be a very attractive proposition for future interested parties.

We are looking at VERY exciting times ahead. We're not doing a Leeds Utd, but we are making great strides whilst being prudent. You can see how far we've come (on and off the pitch) in a short space of time, and what is more, we are laying firm foundations in the process! Whenever (hopefully not for a very long time!) the current regime depart, we will NOT collapse as we now have those foundations. But we WILL be a very attractive proposition for future interested parties. Now, look again at where you are, and how you are. So, who, now is living the shadow of the great who? Mister E

blueseaonlongdeath, what you fail to get is that we drew with celta and then let them win the penaltys so that they could retain their memorial trophy.

The Quinocho Memorial Trophy, or el Trofeo Memorial de Quinocho to use its Spanish name, is an annual memorial trophy. It is played to commemorate the service and death of Joaquin Fernandez Santomé, or 'Quinocho', as he is known by the fans. Quinocho gave the club ten years of service between 1953 and 1963. Born in Vigo, Quinocho was a local hero, serving the club as player, manager and director. During his spell as manager he led the club to promotion to the Segunda Division in the 1980/81 season. He later led the club in five promotions to the top flight in 1975/76, 1977/78, 1981/82, 1984/85 and 1986/87.

He met a tragic death, when on the 20th of October 1988, he was stabbed to death. A gang of robbers broke into the club offices in Vigo in search of the President, who was planning to move the team to San Sebastian (this being the destination of the train in the train crash last week). Quinocho stood up to the men and offered resistance, trying to prevent them from carrying out their plan. It was at this moment that they stabbed Quinocho, and left him for dead. He had a public funeral in the city of Vigo, and the streets were flooded with fans.

This season provides the 18th edition of the memorial game, during the previous 17 years, Celta Vigo have won on 15 occasions.

so the only teams to `win` this trophy in 18years are both from Portugal, ask yourself why that may be.

so you see we retained our class and dignity by letting them retain their trophy, dignity though is something you wouldn't understand as you are all about the precious, stealing from charities and your own fans just so you could get your hands back on the precious!
still enjoy `ripping` L2 up, is gone great so far. and just remember that if sorry when you get relegated from L2 that's it! your pretend fan owned club will fold for good, no pressure then!

The trophy that you say the team didn't deliver is a memorial one which has been won by Celta Vigo every year (bar two) since it's inception despite the fact it has been contested by some very good teams. I suspect we did the honourable thing (particularly as Pochettino would be aware of what it means to their fans) and I 4-1 am not disappointed.
Btw, honour means personal integrity; allegiance to moral principles as no doubt you need a defenition.
The respectable ASIA cup? Really? How many runs did you win by? How many wickets did you take? Did you just jot that down when you read it looking through your history or did you forget the name of the trophy? Your need to put 'respectable' first shows a desire to justify.

Careful now sweety pie, your inferiority complex is starting to show.

Why is it important that you have more fans than the Cherries? oh that's right because you can't say you have more fans than the mighty Saints.

Do keep the posts coming though - they are more entertaining than many of the other Skates who come on here.

speaking of which, has anyone seen that other Skate who was trotting out the same old tired arguments last week? hasn't been seen since the final whistle at the Kipper Shed on Saturday.....

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens. They'd already increased the playing budget before the season started as a result of higher ticket sales and pressure from the manager. They will factionalise between those demanding investment and those wanting to avoid the continuous mistake of the past. I think gates will fall off leaving them even less room for manoeuvre.

blueseaonlongdeath, what you fail to get is that we drew with celta and then let them win the penaltys so that they could retain their memorial trophy.

The Quinocho Memorial Trophy, or el Trofeo Memorial de Quinocho to use its Spanish name, is an annual memorial trophy. It is played to commemorate the service and death of Joaquin Fernandez Santomé, or 'Quinocho', as he is known by the fans. Quinocho gave the club ten years of service between 1953 and 1963. Born in Vigo, Quinocho was a local hero, serving the club as player, manager and director. During his spell as manager he led the club to promotion to the Segunda Division in the 1980/81 season. He later led the club in five promotions to the top flight in 1975/76, 1977/78, 1981/82, 1984/85 and 1986/87.

He met a tragic death, when on the 20th of October 1988, he was stabbed to death. A gang of robbers broke into the club offices in Vigo in search of the President, who was planning to move the team to San Sebastian (this being the destination of the train in the train crash last week). Quinocho stood up to the men and offered resistance, trying to prevent them from carrying out their plan. It was at this moment that they stabbed Quinocho, and left him for dead. He had a public funeral in the city of Vigo, and the streets were flooded with fans.

This season provides the 18th edition of the memorial game, during the previous 17 years, Celta Vigo have won on 15 occasions.

so the only teams to `win` this trophy in 18years are both from Portugal, ask yourself why that may be.

so you see we retained our class and dignity by letting them retain their trophy, dignity though is something you wouldn't understand as you are all about the precious, stealing from charities and your own fans just so you could get your hands back on the precious!
still enjoy `ripping` L2 up, is gone great so far. and just remember that if sorry when you get relegated from L2 that's it! your pretend fan owned club will fold for good, no pressure then!
Don't try to ruin his argument with some sensible debate. Skunts don't do common sense. If they'd been playing in the same competition they would have worked out some way of stealing the trophy whlst the majority of their fans would've been in town looking for a few unguarded charity boxes. Bottom line is they are bottom of the bargain basement and we are Premier League, And it hurts them like hell.

Obviously a slow news day today with no updates on possible strikers or injuries to players after Saturday?
Luke took a knock, as did Steve Davis - and what about the extent of the injury to Nat Clyne?
Even more news worthy - what about the on going search for a new striker - the one allegedly costing crca £20-m?
I guess I will have to troll Saints WEb for my update - only trouble is the site is full of WUMs and ITKs - who add nothing to the site. Sort it out Granty!
As for the other clubs in the region - I for one just hope that they pick up long enough for us to get them at FP in 3rd Round of FA Cup in 2014. May be the last chance we ever get to show them who are the chokers! Chortle, chortle, arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

In that case it was an honour to be asked to play in it, I missed all of the fun and sadly got a bit out of touch, didn't even know the Under 21's had thrashed Brighton. I agree with most of you, we need a prolific goal scoring striker, as soon as possible to ensure that he fits in before the season starts.

Exactly. 2 players scoring 15 goals each plus is a must if we want to be in the top half of the table.
Or 4 scoring 7.5 approximately, or 8 scoring 3.75- (Chortle Chortle).

I see Ricky still at getting 15 goals and Jay Rod could well step up to this mark this season. I hear that Cortese has challenged Jay to hit 20 goals! Mayuka I don't think will get the starts to score much more than 5/6 goals. It would be great if he could become a super sub and get up to 10+ goals.

Ricky will always get goals as he hits the ball so hard and accurately. He will need support this year though and hopefully our midfield will come up with some goals too. I would like to see more from Ramirez this year...I think he owes the club a great season!

That's the beauty of it. They've been in decline for years and thought they'd finally turned the corner. Apparently not. If their bad start continues the Truss will come under pressure to bring better players in on higher wages than the current has beens.

It's hard for clubs in this current climate, local teams such as Sholing and totton have been hit badly, Sholing even opted to drop down a division. Pompey will be relegated again I've no doubt about that, the whole situation with them is so messy.
Who is to be our new rival, you can't take Pompey seriously any more.
I take your point but I don't think you can just invent a rival it's built up over decades and heightened by derbies and incidents between the two. It's also about rivalry between two competing cities and manifests on the football pitch, it's not just about the football.
We won't meet Pompey again for a long time.. Albeit for the odd cup game here and there. Shame then we won't have a local derby.. Undisputed kings of the south!
I seriously doubt that 5TBU has any loyalty to Pompey. He’s probably been on the News’ site for the last couple of hours winding up Frattonisers about yesterday’s result or, perhaps, on twitter threatening to do something ghastly to Mary Beard.

By the way, Pompey will bounce back. Despite the ancient curse that has destined them to be run by appallingly bad administrations for eternity, they are as resilient as cockroaches.

blueseaonlongdeath, what you fail to get is that we drew with celta and then let them win the penaltys so that they could retain their memorial trophy.

The Quinocho Memorial Trophy, or el Trofeo Memorial de Quinocho to use its Spanish name, is an annual memorial trophy. It is played to commemorate the service and death of Joaquin Fernandez Santomé, or 'Quinocho', as he is known by the fans. Quinocho gave the club ten years of service between 1953 and 1963. Born in Vigo, Quinocho was a local hero, serving the club as player, manager and director. During his spell as manager he led the club to promotion to the Segunda Division in the 1980/81 season. He later led the club in five promotions to the top flight in 1975/76, 1977/78, 1981/82, 1984/85 and 1986/87.

He met a tragic death, when on the 20th of October 1988, he was stabbed to death. A gang of robbers broke into the club offices in Vigo in search of the President, who was planning to move the team to San Sebastian (this being the destination of the train in the train crash last week). Quinocho stood up to the men and offered resistance, trying to prevent them from carrying out their plan. It was at this moment that they stabbed Quinocho, and left him for dead. He had a public funeral in the city of Vigo, and the streets were flooded with fans.

This season provides the 18th edition of the memorial game, during the previous 17 years, Celta Vigo have won on 15 occasions.

so the only teams to `win` this trophy in 18years are both from Portugal, ask yourself why that may be.

so you see we retained our class and dignity by letting them retain their trophy, dignity though is something you wouldn't understand as you are all about the precious, stealing from charities and your own fans just so you could get your hands back on the precious!
still enjoy `ripping` L2 up, is gone great so far. and just remember that if sorry when you get relegated from L2 that's it! your pretend fan owned club will fold for good, no pressure then!
Don't try to ruin his argument with some sensible debate. Skunts don't do common sense. If they'd been playing in the same competition they would have worked out some way of stealing the trophy whlst the majority of their fans would've been in town looking for a few unguarded charity boxes. Bottom line is they are bottom of the bargain basement and we are Premier League, And it hurts them like hell.
You did not let them win the trophy what rubbish I read article above you probably would of let Man united win the cup in 1976 if you didn't have the Pompey lad Bobby stokes I bet if he had not played MAN UTD would of won the cup . Lets face it SAINTS players do not deliver division 1 BHA won trophy and Reading won championship trophy two chances not delivered .

tut tut... all that apparent failure and yet we are STILL in the Premier League and Kipper Shed United are STILL in League 2.

Clearly we are doing something wrong here. Quite clearly it's just winning the cups that matters - league position has nothing to do with it.

oh and by the way my fishy friend - your amusing little game against Oxford was NOT a record attendance for league 2. Crystal Palace v Milwall 1961 - 37K attendance.

Do keep trying though.
