Southampton v Reading

SAINTS lost 4-2 to Reading in today's pre-season friendly match at St Mary's.

Gylfi Sigurdsson opened the scoring after 19 minutes, beating Kelvin Davis from the edge of the box, but Lee Barnard's sublime goal brought Saints level in the 35th minute.

Dean Hammond's header just after the break put Saints in front, but Reading were on level terms in the 69th minute, as Dan Harding gave away a penalty an Simon Church safely converted it.

The Championship side then took the lead in the 77th minute, as Church headed in Jobi McAnuff's cross.

Reading sealed their win five minutes from time, as former Saints loanee Michail Antonio fired home.

Wonder what will happen today? Nice to see Adam get a run out and Jason Puncheon - but I doubt either will be risked!
Not expecting a win today - but would be happy with a draw. Like to see a few goals being banged in by the front men - but they will need some service.
Good luck lads - but next week it starts for real

We have the right squad, people are worrying to much, believe in your team. To much worrying will bring tension to the squad, we have to be positive in every game and this starts with the fans who attend the games, get behind the team and results will turn are way. Lets see where we are in December, thats the real turning point in the season. COYR!!

In fairness we had 3 midfielders and star striker injured, finished the game with only 3 of starting 11, against a team a league higher, and proved we can score goals and play without lambert. Very confident for next season after today. Thought we looked attacking and exciting and outplayed reading for a lot of the game. League higher fitness and better squad depth did us in the end

Fine.......but I'm worried.
Anyone else share my concerns?
I thought that the sutton result was bad but against reading, not bothered to be honest, pre seasons are always garbage and not worth getting down about, I share the concern of some others that it baffles me as to why we cant assemble a squad a little quicker so they can gel, but we have to wait for gems,thats what being in the 3rd div does for you im afraid.
I have every faith in AP, the backing staff he has put together, and the squad (when their not ill).
Just please get some more pace !! and possibly a wild card like waigo who I thought was brilliant.

We played ok nothing more or less, neither keeper had much to do apart from get the ball out the net on numerous occasions. Once all the young lads came on they looked out of their depth.

Because of all the pre-season chat regarding new signings it is all too easy to forget that today we played with only 2 new faces, Butterfield and Dickson, both of whom are defenders and therefore more difficult to integrate into the team.
I'm sure that there will be a couple of signings soon but what I can't really get my head around is that whoever they are they will need games to integrate with the other players. But the club have been aware of the teams needs for weeks and weeks now....it almost makes one wonder what the point of pre-season is.?
Actually it only makes sense to me if the new signings are being bought in Especially as back-ups and will not therefore be the Stars whom we are all hoping for.

Just got in from the game. We outplayed them in the first half despite a weakened team. Second half had too may changes and the pattern of our game was lost. Still it gave some of the fringe players a run out.

I saw Pulis for the first time and I am not sure why he was brought on at all. He did nothing.

Lessons learnt, we have a lack of quality back up, there are going to be times when our best players are unavailable so we need more cover.

It looks like the pitch has not been prepared as well as last years, it seemed a bit dead and several times the ball bobbled badly, and several
places it cut up badly.

Butterfield and Dickson looked useful, Ox C went and hid late in the second half after a rollicking from Wotton, after looking lively when he came on. Connolly is good but was guilty of giving the ball away in vital areas, we know Barny can score if given a decent service. Jedi looked a little ponderous. Would have liked to have seen Bart for the second half. Martin looks to be improving rapidly. The rest were so so, and there was Pulis!

Five probable starting eleven out and we still played very well for 65 minutes. Out played them for most of the first half, and deserved to go 2-1 up. Dickson looked good, and Barny and DC were sharpe.
Mills I'm afraid was again fairly poor. He tries, but just doesn't position himself well, Chamberlain is a far more talented option.
The one thing that this game did tell us is that the youngsters are not good enough yet, but the acadamy is producing some talent, the young lad Reeves looks useful.
Antonio got a great reception, with crys of Sign him up A.P.
Forget the end result, if A.P hadn't made 7 changes in about 2 minutes then this would have stayed 2-1.
Good news on the pie front, much improved, and you geta bag to eat it from and not a stupid tray which was always to small.

mattletisser is god says...

first time ive gotten to see a game in a long time.
Our Keepers looked better than Readings. (was watching the warm up and Readings first move was sideways to dive where as KD n BB both step forward at an angle). KD does not comand his box well enough, this showed in the second half when the youth team where defending. Also i belive from where i was sat that he shouldn't have allowed church to nip infront of him.
The back four also seemed to be lacking a leader especially on the set plays, and i noticed jahidi and fonté didn't pass there man accross so they could fill some very big holes. But when they had the ball looked very composed and looking for outlets outwide.
Midfield seemed very compact, a lack of width due to missing players i'm assumeing. Mills did well when with the ball but kept getting drawn in meaning a quick wide ball option was lost and he had the beating of his marker. Oxi seemed like a rabbit in the headlights today. He obviously has talent as lots on here say it and pards wouldnt pick him if not, but he tended to control and pass (about 50% sucsess rate). Where a few times he had the space to open his legs and cause the defender trouble. Centre of midfield was strong and impressive. DC had a poor game by his standards. Barnard played well , scored a gascognie esc goal flicking over the defenders head before burying it, though with ariel clearances he is a yellow card waiting to happen, he was not going for the ball, you could see him looking at the defender before jumping and giving freekicks away to regularly because of it. Although I seem to be negative here I'm not. That was against better opponents that we'll face in the league, there for little issue as listed are more highlighted. I belive with full strength team and wide guys hugging the line we will rip teams apart. But as earlier mentioned we do need alittle more strength in depth. Would have been nice to see how Bart controls the defence.

Just because they activated the contract by a year doesnt mean you cant sign up. A good offer I'm sure would of been accepted.

We need players at least three, this is the whole point to cover injuries.

Lamberts injured

puncheon injured.

AUSTIN

Pilkington (also back up striker! - plays for huddersfield, young, big strong and gets goals - or Arron Wilbraham MK Dons).

Frimbong would be a good adition on top of these three positions and means wotton would be gone!!

I'm a Saints fan, and I went to Linvoy's testimonial. It was an alright game. I know Linvoy played for our rivals but he is a legend in Football and a class act so cut him some slact. Plus we're friends with him and his family so had quite nice seats. But I was annoyed because I missed the Saints game.

But I'm going to Eastleigh on Monday to hopefully see a Saints side dominate a blue square south one.

I'm a Saints fan, and I went to Linvoy's testimonial. It was an alright game. I know Linvoy played for our rivals but he is a legend in Football and a class act so cut him some slact. Plus we're friends with him and his family so had quite nice seats. But I was annoyed because I missed the Saints game. But I'm going to Eastleigh on Monday to hopefully see a Saints side dominate a blue square south one.
Well said laddergoat. There are times when rivalry has to be put to one side, and this was one of them. If all players did as much to improve the lot of kids in the community, both here and abroad, the world would be a far better place.

AP gave nothing away in his after
match comments about new signings
except to say he is still looking. Yes,
it would ideal to have new players in
time for the new season but AP is not
going to be rushed.His judgement to
date on signings has been spot on
and I think we will be satisfied when
he has made his choice/s.AP was
hopefull that the injured players
would be ok by next Sat. except for
Lallana whose injury is taking longer
to respond to treatment than hoped.
He is hoping for a good turnout -
remember we can make all the
difference with our support
especially during difficult patches
when silence or jeers will NOT help
the team.
I believe we will gain promotion but
this must not be taken for granted
- there are other teams who are
just as hungry for success as we are
and they will all be wanting to prove
a point when they play us as other
posters have said in the past.

So basically what your admitting to is that our chairman won't be happy if we are anything other than top 3 whereas yours (when you get one or Mr popodopolis until then) will be happy if your outside the bottom 3!!

mmm I know where i'd rather be.

No mention of Darren Carter as AP gave the impression he was pleased with him & I'm sure many of us expected him to be in the line up.
I sense though his wage expectations may have been too high as I presume they were with Millwall where negotiations for his transfer also broke down.
I have a feeling he will end up with a Premiership or a Championship side & could see him moving to a Club like Blackpool who have only made one signing since being promoted to the Premiership.
Has anyone else heard anything as to Darren Carter as one has to think he is looking elsewhere ....shame if this is true as I think ,with the experience he has had, he would have been a good signing.

Spot on we have to back A.P. his judgement so far has been good.At the game today and i thought the boy from brentford had a good game as did BUTTERFIELD. We were a match for READING sixty minutes but with the changes it was men against boys. Glad the crowd showed ANTONIO how much we would enjoy his company week in week out.I think he was happy to score but he did'nt rub it in. We must all be right behind the team rigtht from the first minute of the new season because this will not be just a stroll in the park.

Good post ONTARIO SAINT, but i believe we now have a wage structure at the club that will not be broken regardless of who it is. If you remember under LOWE/BURLY this was forgotten and the players who came in for big money did not save us from the dreaded drop it only went very close to blowing our club out of the water. once bitten twice shy.

Pards hasn't shown his cards yet, happy with the performance of the firsts he sent out for the first 69mins when leading at 2-1 he rang the changes. Should be enough to make Peter Reid sweat.

Injuries aplenty in the squad, Adam out for the first game of the season and we wait for a few additions wondering if a budget is to be shelled out and getting everyone a bit tentative and nervy.

Twitter feed didn't do it for me I hit the pit after kick off but will be up for the return of The Big Dave next week..

Oh joy! What a week to look forward to. Rife (or ripe) rumours of signings, lots of balderdash and hissy bits but come what may it's all over at kick off next Saturday 11.15pm NZ time what a treat and we should get a video stream around the world too?

I hope the Mighty Red Army Overseas platoon will fall in to muster in the Echo Match Thread on time all kitted up and keen. We want the return of the Oil Rig workers and soldiers, the lads from southern Argentina and Chile, The Far East, Middle East and USA, Canada and our lot down under.. Europe and UK fans will of course be bolstered by the East Itchen Hit Squad on point texting posts from the game and sending pics into our facebook group Echo Saints Forum :)

Thats the spirit Dan, you oversea's and Northern lot are crucial to the cause.
We'll be there singing and shouting, but its always great to get back to the thread to see what your reactions are.
The starting 11 today were very solid, only weak link if Jason and Lala are not fit is Mills and Chamberlain, but as much as I hate to say this, Mills is probably the better of the two.

Reading the Reading boss's comments on Pards again..he mentioned how Reading felt let down that Pards went to West Ham and some laughed when the Hammers dropped him unceremoniously after a dip in results..

Half the Saints first team had Reading 2-1 down at 69 mins before Pards brought on the young ones The other half of the first team were in the box smiling.

Get the feeling Alan Pardew will have his day back in the prem. Saints Fans love Pards now but the first five results of the season will tell if Nicola Cortese has or needs patience or a plan B or if the faith in Pards is justified.. COYR Sashes
I'm full of it!!!!

faith I mean ;p

first time ive gotten to see a game in a long time.
Our Keepers looked better than Readings. (was watching the warm up and Readings first move was sideways to dive where as KD n BB both step forward at an angle). KD does not comand his box well enough, this showed in the second half when the youth team where defending. Also i belive from where i was sat that he shouldn't have allowed church to nip infront of him.
The back four also seemed to be lacking a leader especially on the set plays, and i noticed jahidi and fonté didn't pass there man accross so they could fill some very big holes. But when they had the ball looked very composed and looking for outlets outwide.
Midfield seemed very compact, a lack of width due to missing players i'm assumeing. Mills did well when with the ball but kept getting drawn in meaning a quick wide ball option was lost and he had the beating of his marker. Oxi seemed like a rabbit in the headlights today. He obviously has talent as lots on here say it and pards wouldnt pick him if not, but he tended to control and pass (about 50% sucsess rate). Where a few times he had the space to open his legs and cause the defender trouble. Centre of midfield was strong and impressive. DC had a poor game by his standards. Barnard played well , scored a gascognie esc goal flicking over the defenders head before burying it, though with ariel clearances he is a yellow card waiting to happen, he was not going for the ball, you could see him looking at the defender before jumping and giving freekicks away to regularly because of it. Although I seem to be negative here I'm not. That was against better opponents that we'll face in the league, there for little issue as listed are more highlighted. I belive with full strength team and wide guys hugging the line we will rip teams apart. But as earlier mentioned we do need alittle more strength in depth. Would have been nice to see how Bart controls the defence.
Thanks to you and other for the reports from the game.. all the overseas fans love all the banter but it's the views and info we love most and from all perspectives. Cheers

Pards says Adam is out for the first game but Punch will be okay. So not including additions does everyone agree our current starters are??? :

Davis
Butterfield Fonte Jaidi Harding
Puncheon Schneiderlin Hammond Dickson
Lambert Barnard

Subs: Bialkowshi (if signed)/Forecast, Connolly, Mills, Holmes, Seaborne and Chamberlain.

with the option of Harding switching to right, Punch to left wing and Butterfield to the Right wing???

Correct me if I'm wrong but this side is versatile.. may lack a bit of pace but is going to be a handful for any L1 side.

I want to add a bit of support for those being asked to step up a notch.. Alex, Callum and maybe young Ben Reeves before the end of the season.. Good Lads.. do your best if you get a chance and don't worry Pards won't be throwing you all in there at once and there are thousands of fans willing you all to do well.

I'm afraid that nice Mr. Gossie got in the firing line accidentally yesterday and defended me valiantly for which I say 'thankyou'. I shall buy you a drink should we ever meet up offline. I stopped posting last year because of the amount of idiotic comments and abuse on here. I guess it happens everywhere which of course saddens me when so many love to share their passion for the Saints from all over the World.

Dan I'm with you mate - full of optimism. The match was OK as a friendly goes and yes, we were much better than Reading until end of 1st half.
.
In the matchday programme, Pards said he was still looking for 2 - 3 players to strengthen the squad. Daniel Frimpong , a 18 year old mid-fielder at Arsenal, has been linked with Saints. I watched him playing in the Arsenal vs Inter match on Sky last night and he looks a very handy player who, if we did get him, would be great cover for Deano and who would be competition for the postition - That's what Pards is after - backup and competition for the various positions.
.
Looking forward to the match next Saturday!

I'm a Saints fan, and I went to Linvoy's testimonial. It was an alright game. I know Linvoy played for our rivals but he is a legend in Football and a class act so cut him some slact. Plus we're friends with him and his family so had quite nice seats. But I was annoyed because I missed the Saints game. But I'm going to Eastleigh on Monday to hopefully see a Saints side dominate a blue square south one.
Legend? Seriously? He may have been a nice bloke but does that make him a legend? And if he is a legend then why (as pompey, claim to have the best fans in the country) did little over 6,000 turn up with free admission on offer to certain groups?? Letiss had over 31,000 turn up for his.....what does that tell you? cr&p fans or cr&p player? Or both? You decide
Taking an objective view, it should be remembered that Navy Days were also being held in Portsmouth at the same time.
Many local families have naval connections and so it is reasonable to assume that some opted to to go there.
When you add to that the fact that they were playing Fulham, which is hardly considered to be a great attraction and unlikely to bring many fans, it could be argued that the attendance was not bad.
Saints had about 2,000 more, for a match against a comparatively local side, who brought a good crowd with them.
There were no rival attractions in Southampton that were 'one off' and likely to reduce the attendance at St Marys'.
When you take into consideration the current financial climate, I guess that was also a factor for both games attracting a smaller crowd than was hoped.

Linvoy went to my kids school to take a football leason a few years ago (St. Edmunds in Portsmouth). Everyone was desparate for his autograph accept my daughter who when asked if she would like his autograph, said, 'its alright, I got Matt Le Tiss's last week'
