Saints star Victor Wanyama walking disciplinary tightrope

VICTOR Wanyama is the first Saints player this season to be walking a disciplinary tightrope.

The combative £12.5m midfielder picked up his fourth booking in 12 Premier League games during Saints’ 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.

All the ever-present Kenyan’s yellow cards – against West Ham, Swansea, Manchester United and now the Gunners – have been for fouls and he is now just one more booking away from an automatic one-game suspension.

And that could cause manager Mauricio Pochettino a central midfield headache with Jack Cork – the obvious replacement should Wanyama be suspended – currently sidelined through injury.

If Wanyama is booked in this Sunday’s trip to Chelsea, he will miss the following Wednesday’s home clash with Aston Villa.

Should he be cautioned against Villa, he would miss the mouth-watering home clash three days later with free-scoring Manchester City.

Cork missed the trip to The Emirates following an ankle injury he sustained at training.

Pochettino did not put any timescale on the midfielder’s injury when he revealed Cork’s problem last week.

Wanyama, as revealed in the Daily Echo last Saturday, has committed more fouls than anyone else in the Premier League this season.

The three he was picked up for at Arsenal took his seasonal tally to 32.

He is certainly no stranger to picking up bookings – having collected 15 while playing for Celtic last season, as well as two red cards.

Wanyama was first red carded during his two-season stay in Scotland in March 2012 when playing in the Glasgow derby.

He was sent off against a Rangers side that included his current St Mary’s colleague, Steven Davis, for a two-footed lunge at Steven Whittaker.

Jose Fonte picked up his third booking of the Premier League season at Arsenal, while Morgan Schneiderlin is on two bookings for the term.

Most sides have at least one player on 4 bookings at this time of the season, e.g. Ivanovic for Sunday, Westwood & Delph for next Wed, Garcia the game after, then Cabaya and Sissoko for toon.
(The FA have a list here of players on 4 bookings :- http://www.thefa.com
/football-rules-gove
rnance/suspensions).

When it happens It will be a time for Jack Cork or somebody else to step up and put in a performance that means that Victor will have to fight to get his place back.

Shame Cork is injured - I'd put him back in the Saints Team now, regardless of Wanyama's bookings.

I think he is just as effective at getting amongst the opposition and just as good at going box to box for 90 minutes. The only difference is he has a much better range of passing, and his tackles tend to be cleaner.

I know others on here prefer Wanyama's aggression, but in a footballing side like ours, I'd play Cork every time.

Good to have this sort of dilemma though.

Cork is a more than capable replacement for Big Vic, but on Saturday I think I saw the best of VW and I believe that he has now settled and we'll see much more of this sort of performance.
I know Cork has been brilliant for us over the last few years but VC is different gravy, this is probably reflected in their current values.

Shame about Victor having his goal disallowed the other week at St Marys, it was a killjoy moment. I hope he gets the chance to show that celebratory smile again soon and he will get even better for the experience.

If I were MoPo I'd be telling Victor (The Beast) Wanyama to play exactly the way he did against Arsenal, if gets booked he gets booked.

I have watched this lad battle, break up opponents play, mix with the best of them and come out on top in near on every game this season.

I would go as far as to say to the Beast, get booked against Chelsea, take a rest for Villa and be ready to for Man C, but then again I am not a football manager.

I'd like to see him chance his arm (or foot) with a shot more often. He's quite often allowed to stroll pretty far forward unchallenged by defences that seem to think he'll always pass it. He's blatantly got the ability to hit them from 25 yards (he had a very decent effort on Saturday) so he should take the shot on a bit more.

On a slightly different note, did anyone watch University Challenge last night? Southampton absolutely SMASHED it against Bangor in the second round.

Interesting article that simply supports the many views expressed via this site. One cannot help but speculate that it is a situation that needs to be resolved and quickly. With the January transfer window almost upon us no doubt rumours and counter-rumours will proliferate. Surely a £12M man (investment!) cannot be allowed to remain largely inactive. As an aside, reading the article one could almost substitute "Le God" for Ramirez so does raise an hypothetical question - would "Le God" have made a Pochettino side?

Well, there is a saying a man is judged by his actions and by his words....his yellow cards probably justify our fine run this season....

To appreciate Victor's contribution in this team you need to understand his current role in our system... he is a defensive midfield MD, i don't know whether you know what that means, to make it simpler for you to understand i will explain...

I dont know whether you watched Lallana's interview after hull's game or not , here it is

Vic and Morgan have the hardest job in the squad, coz they support both the front and the back, like Adam said in his interview they make their lives a lot easier....in other words he shields the defence and feeds the front players, no one has to run all the way back to front or vice versa unless they need to...

.. sometimes in football the only option to stop a break through from the opposition is to commit a foul.......in his case yellow cards would mean he has not been lazing around the pitch

Like some one in here said, let him play, if shielding our defence means picking a yellow card to prevent a goal so lets be it...

don't get me wrong here, i am a big fan of Jack cork, have been and will always be...in fact i like ALL our players.. that's why i have holding a season ticket since 2005 as soon as I turned 16..:-)

last season we looked a little bit light weight ....

but for the new style MoPo has brought in,..
A player like vic as a DM with his strength, has become a plus for us...our squad is full of young and talented players adding a bit of strength to it doesnt hurt ..in fact it may prevent us from being easily bullied by teams who relied solely on their strength.......anywa
y..

Managers sign players for different needs, players have different talents, some are playmakers, other are good at passing and deliveries, and many are good interceptors to mention just a few .....much depends on what the managers want in a player and what they want to achieve as a team..

Your comments shows that what you want is definitely NOT what MoPo wants..

If you want my opinion i would rather see him pick up a yellow card from Chelsea game and miss a Villa game to reset his yellow card clock back to zero in time for Man city game...

Would it not be better to have our strongest side for the Villa game. That would give Corky a bit more recovery time and I seem to remember we did pretty well against ManC with him and Spider in defensive mid.

last season we looked a little bit light weight ....

but for the new style MoPo has brought in,..
A player like vic as a DM with his strength, has become a plus for us...our squad is full of young and talented players adding a bit of strength to it doesnt hurt ..in fact it may prevent us from being easily bullied by teams who relied solely on their strength.......anywa


y..

Managers sign players for different needs, players have different talents, some are playmakers, other are good at passing and deliveries, and many are good interceptors to mention just a few .....much depends on what the managers want in a player and what they want to achieve as a team..

Your comments shows that what you want is definitely NOT what MoPo wants..

If you want my opinion i would rather see him pick up a yellow card from Chelsea game and miss a Villa game to reset his yellow card clock back to zero in time for Man city game...

COYRs keep your foot down
Would it not be better to have our strongest side for the Villa game. That would give Corky a bit more recovery time and I seem to remember we did pretty well against ManC with him and Spider in defensive mid.
You are probably right, we need to pick up points from the so-called "smaller teams"... but I was just thinking that we get more respect and recognition when beat the so called "bigger teams" and i think we can beat almost any team at the moment if we carry on this form..

if some fortune tellers which I dont believe in , but just for the sake of the conversation asks me hey FindAndDestroy what victory would you want ? Villa's or Man City's?
I would choose city for sure...since they play champions league football, beating them will give us more confidence in champions league football should we gatecrash the top 4 this season....

Hot gossip! Diego has been talking about a move to Southampton or Arsenal as his preferred destination.

Wow it's unreal how far we have come that we are now attracting full Brazillian capped players.

About time Guly got his. Speaking of Guly I don't know how it works but the players absolutely adore him. and three managers have had faith in him.
There must be something there. I know we blame him for a few mistakes and attitude but I'd really like to know what is it about him that makes the playing side of the club love him so much. It's intriguing what does he show in training that makes him their talisman / mascot? It can't be just charisma and skills

Last season we picked up maximum points in both fixtures, we also picked up a point at Stamford Bridge; whilst we have already gained points this season that we did not achieve last season it only bears fruit if we also succeed where we did last seasons, so that's at least seven points from the next three fixtures.

If so, kudos. Football supporting (as in actually going to the games) has become a bit of a middle-aged pursuit, for obvious reasons. It's nice to see some new blood coming through.

And you're spot on about Victor. People just cannot go past him, and that's the main reason our defence has been so good.

Nah, it was some guy saying that whenever Victor had the ball his side needn't worry too much, which is to 100% miss the point of what Victor's in the side for. He does his damage when the opposition have the ball. Basically, if you're in the middle third of the pitch and you've got the ball and you're not wearing a Saints top then Victor is going to get it off you. That's it.

He's young, mind, which means he still has time to develop as an attacking force. If he does that he'll eclipse Yaya Toure who, to my mind, is the greatest ever Premiership footballer.

Or put them in a sack and drown them. Just to put them out of their misery of course. I am surprised though that the bestest, bestest fans in the whole universe, while creating a very intimidating atmosphere, don't seem able to lift their bunch of journeymen, has beens and rejects . Love to see how many were left at the end. Shame for them.

Spot on, I thought my joke was going to waste, they had to come all the way down to Nottarf, a late kick off, a player sent off, six minutes extra time and a long cold journey home, and they are managed by Phil Brown, they do have my sympathy.

Yes! Arsenal are quite good. Chelsea, meanwhile, are still in transition and after a week of full training we're easily good enough to get after them

Imagine being the side that ruins Mourinho's perfect home record with Chelsea. I'd love it. Love it,

I think he is just as effective at getting amongst the opposition and just as good at going box to box for 90 minutes. The only difference is he has a much better range of passing, and his tackles tend to be cleaner.

I know others on here prefer Wanyama's aggression, but in a footballing side like ours, I'd play Cork every time.

Well, there is a saying a man is judged by his actions and by his words....his yellow cards probably justify our fine run this season....

To appreciate Victor's contribution in this team you need to understand his current role in our system... he is a defensive midfield MD, i don't know whether you know what that means, to make it simpler for you to understand i will explain...

Vic and Morgan have the hardest job in the squad, coz they support both the front and the back, like Adam said in his interview they make their lives a lot easier....in other words he shields the defence and feeds the front players, no one has to run all the way back to front or vice versa unless they need to...

.. sometimes in football the only option to stop a break through from the opposition is to commit a foul.......in his case yellow cards would mean he has not been lazing around the pitch

Like some one in here said, let him play, if shielding our defence means picking a yellow card to prevent a goal so lets be it...

don't get me wrong here, i am a big fan of Jack cork, have been and will always be...in fact i like ALL our players.. that's why i have holding a season ticket since 2005 as soon as I turned 16..:-)

last season we looked a little bit light weight ....

but for the new style MoPo has brought in,..
A player like vic as a DM with his strength, has become a plus for us...our squad is full of young and talented players adding a bit of strength to it doesnt hurt ..in fact it may prevent us from being easily bullied by teams who relied solely on their strength.......anywa


y..

Managers sign players for different needs, players have different talents, some are playmakers, other are good at passing and deliveries, and many are good interceptors to mention just a few .....much depends on what the managers want in a player and what they want to achieve as a team..

Your comments shows that what you want is definitely NOT what MoPo wants..

If you want my opinion i would rather see him pick up a yellow card from Chelsea game and miss a Villa game to reset his yellow card clock back to zero in time for Man city game...

COYRs keep your foot down
Are you really only 24?

If so, kudos. Football supporting (as in actually going to the games) has become a bit of a middle-aged pursuit, for obvious reasons. It's nice to see some new blood coming through.

And you're spot on about Victor. People just cannot go past him, and that's the main reason our defence has been so good.

Would it not be better to have our strongest side for the Villa game. That would give Corky a bit more recovery time and I seem to remember we did pretty well against ManC with him and Spider in defensive mid.
You are probably right, we need to pick up points from the so-called "smaller teams"... but I was just thinking that we get more respect and recognition when beat the so called "bigger teams" and i think we can beat almost any team at the moment if we carry on this form..

if some fortune tellers which I dont believe in , but just for the sake of the conversation asks me hey FindAndDestroy what victory would you want ? Villa's or Man City's?
I would choose city for sure...since they play champions league football, beating them will give us more confidence in champions league football should we gatecrash the top 4 this season....

that's all i was thinking....but i see your point..
Last season we picked up maximum points in both fixtures, we also picked up a point at Stamford Bridge; whilst we have already gained points this season that we did not achieve last season it only bears fruit if we also succeed where we did last seasons, so that's at least seven points from the next three fixtures.

COYRs

Villa's or Man City's? I would choose city for sure...since they play champions league football, beating them will give us more confidence in champions league football should we gatecrash the top 4 this season.... that's all i was thinking....but i see your point..[/p][/quote]Last season we picked up maximum points in both fixtures, we also picked up a point at Stamford Bridge; whilst we have already gained points this season that we did not achieve last season it only bears fruit if we also succeed where we did last seasons, so that's at least seven points from the next three fixtures.

I think he is just as effective at getting amongst the opposition and just as good at going box to box for 90 minutes. The only difference is he has a much better range of passing, and his tackles tend to be cleaner.

I know others on here prefer Wanyama's aggression, but in a footballing side like ours, I'd play Cork every time.

Good to have this sort of dilemma though.

Well, there is a saying a man is judged by his actions and by his words....his yellow cards probably justify our fine run this season....

To appreciate Victor's contribution in this team you need to understand his current role in our system... he is a defensive midfield MD, i don't know whether you know what that means, to make it simpler for you to understand i will explain...

Vic and Morgan have the hardest job in the squad, coz they support both the front and the back, like Adam said in his interview they make their lives a lot easier....in other words he shields the defence and feeds the front players, no one has to run all the way back to front or vice versa unless they need to...

.. sometimes in football the only option to stop a break through from the opposition is to commit a foul.......in his case yellow cards would mean he has not been lazing around the pitch

Like some one in here said, let him play, if shielding our defence means picking a yellow card to prevent a goal so lets be it...

don't get me wrong here, i am a big fan of Jack cork, have been and will always be...in fact i like ALL our players.. that's why i have holding a season ticket since 2005 as soon as I turned 16..:-)

Managers sign players for different needs, players have different talents, some are playmakers, other are good at passing and deliveries, and many are good interceptors to mention just a few .....much depends on what the managers want in a player and what they want to achieve as a team..

Are you really only 24?

If so, kudos. Football supporting (as in actually going to the games) has become a bit of a middle-aged pursuit, for obvious reasons. It's nice to see some new blood coming through.

And you're spot on about Victor. People just cannot go past him, and that's the main reason our defence has been so good.
Yes mate...turned 24 in Jan...all my family are saints...my dad, my older brother, my cousin Tom and I...and hope my kids are going to saints too..:-) .dad promised me a season ticket as soon as i pass my GCSEs..which i did...hooray !!!
Good lad! I guess you came of age just as we had our worst spell in living memory (that last season when we went down from the Championship was bloody awful) but you stuck by us when it mattered. This is now the reward. Enjoy!

However, the skunts do tend to fall into two categories. Those who live on the mainland and those inbred, festering, bigotted, illiterate, work-shy shitsicles who skunt about on Portsea Island.

Nah, it was some guy saying that whenever Victor had the ball his side needn't worry too much, which is to 100% miss the point of what Victor's in the side for. He does his damage when the opposition have the ball. Basically, if you're in the middle third of the pitch and you've got the ball and you're not wearing a Saints top then Victor is going to get it off you. That's it.

He's young, mind, which means he still has time to develop as an attacking force. If he does that he'll eclipse Yaya Toure who, to my mind, is the greatest ever Premiership footballer.
If Victor can work on his distribution a bit mor he could be superb, as long as he sticks to the safe option at moment I won't complain.
I agree, there is no doubt his distribution isnt impressive, that's a fact....Again he is only 22 in a new league and a new system than he use to, he got plenty of time to learn...we just need to be patient with him and encourage him i guess...

Looking at the game Sunday, we have Chelsea, who have just lost and may have lowered morale, we have a team that has had a week back in the proper training regime, hopefully not too many injuries, we have a side that could beat anyone in the Premier, we have a group of supporters that will be giving it everything, it appears that the Referee is one of the better ones, so what could possibly go wrong? Fate will decide, I look forward in anticipation of a decent result, but keeping my realistic head on, anything could happen.
