Saints players give Osvaldo some home help

José Fonte has revealed the lengths that the Saints players have gone to in order to help record signing Dani Osvaldo settle at the club.

The 27-year-old striker joined from Roma last month, for a fee that could rise to as much as £14.6m.

The switch to Saints represents a major – and not necessarily easy – transition for the Argentine-born Italian international.

However, he and his girlfriend, the actress and singer Jimena Baron, are receiving plenty of assistance from the Saints squad as they attempt to find their feet in England.

Fonte said: “We’ve taken care of everything.

“We’ve taken care of his house, we’ve taken care of his car. He’s finding it really easy, because everyone is a good person in this club.

“You adapt very quickly and he’s completely settled. He just wants to move into his house.

“He’s still in a hotel, which is not the best, but soon he will move into his house and he will be even more settled.”

Fonte explained that the Saints players always make a conscious effort to help and include any new signing – in order to make it as easy as possible for them to integrate.

“We embrace them straight away, because without team spirit and togetherness we’re not going to achieve anything.

“We need to get to know our teammate who comes into the club, make him feel welcome, show him what he wants and what he needs and try and help him so he settles as quick as possible to help us on the pitch,” said the centre half.

After one substitute appearance and two starts, Osvaldo is still searching for his first Saints goal, although he came mighty close against West Ham, when an excellent Jussi Jaaskelainen save denied him.

However, while he is yet to find the net, Osvaldo has already shown plenty of flashes of his skill, threat and vision.

That has not gone unnoticed by Portuguese defender Fonte, who believes the forward will be a huge asset to the club.

“You can see in the game his quality, his movement,” he said.

“He’s creating, he’s lively, he gives us something different.

“He gives us some speed and some penetration and some good skills.

“He’s top class and I’m 100 per cent confident the goals will come.”

I think Ossie will sparkle in a couple of games time.
His speed of thought, his movement does add some pace to our attack.
I'm sure it won't be long before he hits the back of the net - hopefully Anfield this weekend!

The bigger the stage the better we seem to play.
Liverpool are going to attack and that gives our pressing game an opportunity to shine. It is essential that our finishing improves as that is all that has stopped us being in the top three. I think a wager on an away win is called for as I believe this will be strong performance and victory for us.

Let's go back to the old days and play a 90 minute 4-2-4 against Liverpool!! I remember we caned them a few times with that formation.

Mad Dog
Clyne, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw
Schneiderlin, Wanyama
Lallana, Lambert, Osvaldo, Ramirez

Nobody gets back to help, just keep scoring and win 5-4.
Done.

I agree. It must be one of the hardest parts of the manager's job. Mind you, there will inevitably be injuries and losses of form, and as a result, I think Pochettino will adapt and change the team over the season.

On any other day Osvaldo would have scored on Sunday, that was one hell of a save in the first half. I’m also confident the goal will start coming for him. Is it me or do we often get opposition Keepers having the game of their lives.

I'm not sure I agree with your latter point, but some of the decisions do seem incredibly soft. At the same time, referees also to let a hell of a lot of deliberate holding and pushing go unpunished.

I have a feeling that Pochettino's team will evolve as the year progresses. Changes will come slowly but they will come, and Ramirez's chance with them.
The difficulty is keeping players like Cork Ramirez and Yoshida happy to stay with us if they are not getting a regular game
I agree. It must be one of the hardest parts of the manager's job. Mind you, there will inevitably be injuries and losses of form, and as a result, I think Pochettino will adapt and change the team over the season.
Because MoPo encourages an aggressive approach I think the inevitable bans will provide some oportunities
Well, there is that remote possibility too, but please keep in mind that we're really Saints through and through.
I don't see an aggressive style as a bad thing but some officials seem to want footy to be a non contact sport
Bring back the days when sliding tackles were only illegal if both feet were more than a foot of the ground
Interesting debate. I agree SSII, take Morgan's tackle at the w/e. Some would see it as a straight red, others as a perfectly legitimate tackle in which he won the ball. The thing I'm getting more and more annoyed about is the 'fair play' idea of knocking the ball out when a player goes down. What's all that about? Of course, a head injury or where someone on the pitch sees a serious situation unfolding needs to be dealt with immediately, but that should be the exception NOT the rule. Nothing wrong with playing hard and fair.

Done.
I'd prefer Boruc in goal and Rodriguez instead of Lallana, but I'll leave it up to the manager.
Boruc IS Mad Dog! See your point about Lallana though; great Cruyff turn with not a lot of end product.

Personally I think Jose has raised his game somewhat. ..he played well on Sunday, him a Lovren make a good pair.

Wanyama may improve and I think that he should get the nod over Cork against a Liverpool side that will be competitive in CM. However Cork should have played against a weak Hammers side that could have been opened up with better passing.

RE Osvaldo: Of course he should play ahead of Jay-Rod, but I felt that someone that could have dropped deep and allowed Clyne to overlap would have been better. JWP (who has awesome delivery) or even Cork

Boruc
Clyne, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw
JWP, Schiederlin, Wanyama, Lallana
Osvaldo, Lambert

Betting can be scaled in points, say 1 to 5, the higher the number the more confident you are of the outcome and the larger the stake you would place.
Cheeky (1 point) – speculative chance, e.g. Rickie first goal scorer at Anfield.
Bet (3 points) – likely chance,e.g. Saints finish in top 10.
Serious (5 points) – certainty, e.g. skunts will fester for eternity in 4th Divison.

Actually, 'Serious' may be a certainty, but I'd never be able to pick up my winnings till the end of eternity, and I don't think I'm going to live that long, so it would be a waste of money.

Cheeky (1 point) – speculative chance, e.g. Rickie first goal scorer at Anfield.
Bet (3 points) – likely chance,e.g. Saints finish in top 10.
Serious (5 points) – certainty, e.g. skunts will fester for eternity in 4th Divison.
Thanks for that. I have only one issue with it. Shouldn't Serious (5 points) be certainty, e.g., skunts will fester for eternity in 4th Division OR LOWER?
Actually, 'Serious' may be a certainty, but I'd never be able to pick up my winnings till the end of eternity, and I don't think I'm going to live that long, so it would be a waste of money.
Don’t be so tight, it’s worth every penny.

I'm off to Liverpool, my first away game this season. I was there when we got battered 7 - 1 I'm sure we'll be better this time!

Just looked at our record at Anfield L28 W4 D9 not very impressive although our home record W19 L11 D10 isn't so bad. Many of those games were when Liverpool were a real force to be reckoned with.

This game will tell us a lot about our team, Liverpool are top with 3 wins and a draw, this is a tough one.

It is very frustrating at the moment but there really is no need to panic or write the season off.
