How would Saints use Rodriguez?

Jay Rodriguez

Nigel Adkins

Saints may see Jay Rodriguez as a long term replacement for Rickie Lambert.

The club are prepared to smash their transfer record to spend £7m on bringing the 22-year-old striker from Burnley, and therefore view him as a long term investment for the club.

A few fans have raised eyebrows at Nigel Adkins spending such a large amount of money on another player who is untried at Premier League level ...

... when, on the face of it, Saints appear to have plenty of strikers who have proved themselves in the Championship but have yet to grace the top flight.

However, Saints have a long term plan and part of that is to recruit hungry, young British players who are desperate to prove themselves.

From a financial sense, players such as Rodriguez are always likely to have a good resale value, commanding probably double their £7m initial investment if he is an instant hit and some bigger clubs take notice.

But he would still have a reasonable resale fee even if he doesn’t cut it because of his age and his record in the second tier at Burnley.

In that way it makes some sense financially, even if some argue that a 30-year-old who commands £7m in wages over a few years but who you know can score goals in the Premier League might be a better investment, given Saints’ squad.

But Saints must have an eye on eventually replacing Lambert and, in Rodriguez, they have are hoping to sign a player who could one day take over their talisman’s mantle.

That is not to say the pair can’t, and won’t, be able to play together, they very much will.

And the fact they both have a strong physical presence offers Saints the chance to play direct and, more importantly, get crosses into the box.

In the Premier League they are unlikely to out-pass lots of sides as they could in the Championship and League One, so it’s as good a tactic as any.

As fantastic as Lambert has been, and hopefully will continue to be for at least another few years, he is now 30 and no player goes on forever.

Saints have to be mindful of that and, in signing a 6ft 1in target man type who can also score plenty of goals, they are surely buying themselves a future line leader.

They are also buying the kind of insurance that they were remiss not to get last summer.

Lambert has a remarkable fitnes and disciplinary record, and it’s just as well for Saints as they rely so heavily on his presence.

He is the talisman for the team, not only because of his goals but because he is vital for the way they play.

Without him, they have lacked ideas.

They could not afford to go another season relying on Lambert being fit.

In Rodriguez, they could finally have someone who can slot straight into that mould, meaning that if the main man is out they don’t need to consider changing formation, style and personnel just for that reason.

As to where it leaves some of Saints’ other strikers, is an interesting question.

Will Adkins be aiming to start Lambert and Rodriguez, two fairly similar types of striker, together?

Or will he want to use one of them alongside Billy Sharp or Tadanari Lee?

If Saints do complete the Rodriguez signing, they are suddenly blessed with six first team strikers in the shape of the new man, Lambert, Sharp, Lee, Guly do Prado and Lee Barnard.

And that’s before you take into account forgotten man Jonathan Forte, who was signed as first team striker, and youngster Sam Hoskins, who is trying to break through.

That is surely too many, given the 25-man squad rules.

Hoskins would be exempt but to think that seven of the 25 will be strikers is surely too top heavy.

So will we see some depart?

Surely not Sharp and Lee who have just joined, or, obviously, Lambert or Rodriguez.

Do Prado is not likely to go as he also challenges for a place on the right of midfield with the striking department filling up.

That leaves Forte and Barnard, two bit-part players in 2011/12, as the most vulnerable.

It will be fascinating to see if Saints try and cash in or loan them out.

One thing is for sure and that’s that in the Premier League you need goals to survive.

Saints are making sure they are not short on numbers in the striking department.

Personally, I don't mind articles that help fill in the time until the season starts. I hope this goes through soon, so that JR gets a full preseason with the squad. Forte will be sold or go on loan and I suspect Barnard might go as well.

Agree with blandford. Good Post.
He gives up many different outlets. He has height and pace to play upfront.
He can also create goals. Therefore is an insurance plan if we cant bring in a good right mid.
Am looking forward to him putting pen to paper.

I asked Burnley fans opinion on JR on their forum. I finally got an answer once I'd waded through the Blackburn fans answers! If anyone thinks this site can get silly or too much bitter rivalry you really really need to visit the site, it's all out war and makes us look like a bunch of soft southern shandy drinkers... anyway:

'Ignore the Blackburn "fans", they're doing absolutely everything they can to try and distract themselves from the fact that they are an national laughing stock, granted all it does is make them look pathetic but when you're a Rovers fan pathetic is actually a step up from ground state.

Jay is a top class player, he's not a goal poacher, or a target man he's a technically gifted, athletic, intelligent, creative all round attacker. On top of that he's a hard working, model pro. I honestly believe he is a potential England international - and the last Burnley player I said that about was Gary Cahill.

The only question mark I'd have is that he's only really played week in week out at one club and it may take him a while to settle in because it's a big distance to move on top of stepping up a division, hopefully Jack Cork and Danny Fox would help with that.'

No disrespect to Guly. However he cant play on the right. he plays well when hes up top Normally when he plays right he's poor.
You have to remember that mainly he is a striker an out and out goal scorer. He will only play on the right if we don't sign a right mid. ( i imagine we will )
People are also Forgetting about STEVE on the right. for an impact sub.

Steve is terrible, he has a useless touch, he's weak and his final delivery is very poor. We have much better already who we could bring on as an impact sub.
As for Guly he is one of the worst players yet still managed to score 16 goals due to luck. Can't see him being prolific in the prem what so ever. I feel Rodriguez is a good replacement for wide right.

Agree with you on that one, whenever I saw Guly last season, he's better up front rather than out wide. Having said that I thought he was outstanding on the right against Coventry.

I agree he was against Cov. but that was a one game. GULY the first half of the season was poor. he didn't look like he wanted to play.

However second half he really picked up his game started putting effort in.

He still has a valid part to play a small part but a valid part.

As for STEVE (saints+Wigan) how can you say his cross is good, he has a moderate amount of pace, but when has he ever used that pace to run at a player. And im sorry i cannot agree with you, his cross is about as useful as Stuart Downings right foot.

Coventry was the first game in ages that I have seen Guly have some sort of impact. We have all seen him score good goals, but some when he is bad it is HORRID! Its also hard to forget he was supposed to be on the goal line near post when Joel Ward scored for the skates at Fratton Park. JR has a lot to offer and we need to be inventive in our squad building, proven premier league players are sold for a reason, and at a high price.... You don't find out the reason until it is too late!

I both agree and disagree with certain comments.
Guly will be brought on when we need to slow a game down. i.e when we are 2-0 up at home against QPR.
i However do think your are being harsh on Steve. He has an impact when he comes on he picks the pace up of a game. Admittedly he can easily be replaced by a better player ( a phillips or an ince ) however they would both start. if we get them we need an impact sub at times and STEVE is our man.
Back to jay i believe he would start week in week out if he joins with lee and sharp on the bench
Lee being another one of the impact players if we need a goal.

Sorry mate I can;t agree with much of this. Guly was far more effective in the first half of the season than the second. This was when he played up front, after Connolly got injured and Chaplow moved in on the right of midfield.

And while I quite like Steve, his cross success rate must be about 5%!

However I feel both will have a role to play next season. Guly's unpredictability could be a useful tool next season, and Steve's pace in the final 20 minutes of games too

Personally i thought he played better second half of season.
The only thing that worries me is that he was good in league one. ( when we had him on loan ) but last year in a higher Div, he wasn't as good. is it further downhill in the prem ?? I hope not.
And i agree with you King when it comes to Steve. i would never play him for more than 20 mins in a game. i would be happier though if we did get a better impact sub.

I have also herd that Kelvin Davies has been told he is 2nd choice GK next year..
Who does this mean is number 1?

The thing with Steve is that while he rarely delivers much himself, his pace means the opposition defence have to adjust to prevent him getting in behind. This frees up space for Lallana on the left, who at times last season was crowded out of games because opponents were happy to stick 3 players on him. They couldn't afford to do this when the right winger was pacey.

Either way I'd like to see Ince playing there next season

Saw all home games and a fair few away ones and Guly was very good first half of the season and couldn't be dropped through form - NA knew how good he was for the team.

I haven't seen enough of him for sure, but whenever I have, Steve seems to have alot of pace, and I'm surprised someone above said his touch is poor-whenever I watch him, he seems to be the only one apart from Adam who can dribble it, keep it close/do the little turns etc. until he can get an 'out'.
Have I just happened to see a few moments, when he's actually a donkey most of the time? I always liked it when he came on, as felt he had the 'potential' to do a trick and beat a man? OK, it might not come off as much as it should, but I prefer players like that to the old fashioned 'kick it down the line and try and outrun the full back' tactic, which almost never works.

Yes from what I have heard (from an old friend who gets to quite a few Burnley matches) JR is the real deal. Plenty of ability. Hopefully he has the confidence to make the step up to the PL.

The only question mark I'd have is that he's only really played week in week out at one club and it may take him a while to settle in because it's a big distance to move on top of stepping up a division, hopefully Jack Cork and Danny Fox would help with that.'[/p][/quote]Yes from what I have heard (from an old friend who gets to quite a few Burnley matches) JR is the real deal. Plenty of ability. Hopefully he has the confidence to make the step up to the PL. oldsaintsfan

I reckon the only way Saints would spend £7M on a striker still needed a keeper, centre half and central midfielder is if they already were lining up a sale(s) of player(s) to get a big chunk of that back... I reckon a suprise name will leave SMS for big-ish money

The fact that people slag Guly off and praise DeRidder is basically based on tye fact that Steve runs about a lot and Guly doesnt! Madness.. neither are great but personally i think that Guly will prove to have more impact in the Prem.

Steve has raw potential but little else. It would be nice if he suddenly turned into Frank Ribery but I cant see it myself

Having watched a number of games Home and Away at the end of last Season - RICKIE was immense on and off the ball.

As well as Rickie - the whole TEAM provided opportunities for Richard Chaplow who squandered chances to add to the goal tally.

Those chances couldn't be buried by Steeeeeeeeeeeeeve as he plays out wide ...

Who can deliver in front of goal ... ?? That's the question !!

ADAM - YES BILLY - YES
GULY - YES JOS - YES

You also need some-one like Jrod to bury these chances.

Doesn't matter about playing in the Premiership - against any team THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON will create chances.

Personally, I would have liked Hooper to be signed up - I would like an England rated Goal Keeper - another RB - another CB to challenge Jose (who struggled at times in the Championship) - and a goal scoring midfielder.

I like the Young Winger - Tom Ince ... but Southampton FC cannot just squander its money
and then be like everton - stuck without finance and unable to progress.

On a different subject fergie was recently boastful about manure supporters ...

YES - there are lots of plastic and cardboard cut-out manure supporters out there ...

ST MARY'S.

Guly is a premiership player, I think he will do well as I reckon he will shine against the very biggest clubs.

De Ridder is good but the team doesn't play tactically to suit his style.

Spot on. I'll be surprised if Steve plays any more than 90 mins in a whole season. Whereas Guly will play more often than not and deserves it for his contributions that got us to the Prem.

However, I can see it now 1-0 down to chelsea at the bridge and steves come on looking fresh. Whilst a minority of saints fans are complaining that prem footie is too expensive in the flesh and saints haven't mustered a shot on target in the whole game he picks the ball up on the touchline and adkins whispers something to him from the dugout. He speeds down the wing cuts in does 2 defenders before releasing one of his trademark no nonsense shots that almost breaks the net and takes the stand with it. Everyone then loves steve and he's a hero for at least 3 mins yayy!! (that was based almost entirely on the Reading away game)

The only reason guly was quality against coventry was because he played as a cental midfielder/attacking midfielder. thats his best position! he played there in italy and hes is wasted on the right. yes he should not start in the prem but if we are struggling to score at home to wigan he will make an impact! As for steve hes is plain and simply not good enough, his cross is very poor and he doesnt use is pace enough, new right mid please hopefully ince!

Butterfield. Seabourne, Richardson and Harding all not good enough for PREM footie. Whilst good hard working individuals who pull on their shirt and play to their best they can't be allowed near the pitch when playing some of the best teams/players in the world. Fans have to accept players come and go and serve a purpose. Their purpose was to get saints moving up the leagues. They were paid handsomely for that as it was their job. They reached their peak and now they must either play bench warming exercises or find another club to benefit from their ability.

Watching those guys defend takes me back to the Richard Dryden era which in all honesty gives me the creeps!

How can you say Seabourne won't cut it, he was class at the start of the season before the injury. If he can get back to that standard then there's definitely a place for him (it's up to NA to decide if he has recovered). Not sure about the logic of getting rid of three out of four full-backs, I'd keep Richardson and Harding, as both are decent, but would like Clyne to join from Palace as he has potential and pace.
People said Lambert wouldn't cut it in the Championship and where are they now? I reckon whoever NA says is good enough, is good enough.

Guly is a premiership player, I think he will do well as I reckon he will shine against the very biggest clubs.

De Ridder is good but the team doesn't play tactically to suit his style.
Agree with everything here! Plus where Guly is massive it seems like he's putting in less effort which I don't believe he is all the time. If he can see he wont reach the ball he gives up and saves what energy would've been wasted only for him to miss out. He's not lazy like some say at all.

Insane Saint,
You just beat me with your wise reply to Ageas SFC, someone who seems to have little knowledge of football and probably seen very few Saints games.
Dan Butterfield was more than competant in the last matches home and away. He filled in excelently when Richardson was injured.
As for his views of Dan Harding, he was probably the best player alongside Rickkie in our promotion from Div 1.
Dan Fox took his position last season,many of the goals we conceded were created from the left back position.
Harding was brilliant at Brighton, he ran them ragged so much so that their players where diving every time they got near him , trying to get him sent off.The Saints supporters were gutted.
Adkins had to take him off to put Fox on, because of this.
They managed to get Rickie sent off not long after.
Whether any of the Dan,s will be able to do it in the prem remains to be seen.They all deserve the chance to try.

How can you say Seabourne won't cut it, he was class at the start of the season before the injury. If he can get back to that standard then there's definitely a place for him (it's up to NA to decide if he has recovered). Not sure about the logic of getting rid of three out of four full-backs, I'd keep Richardson and Harding, as both are decent, but would like Clyne to join from Palace as he has potential and pace. People said Lambert wouldn't cut it in the Championship and where are they now? I reckon whoever NA says is good enough, is good enough.
The logic behind getting rid of three is that you replace them! I love what those (and all the players) have done for us over the last couple of seasons but there's a point where you can't hold on to sentiment. It's a delicate situation because we have a great setup with an amazing unit however we need strong and talented defenders. We've got amazing attacking prowess but our defence will be like and open wound week in week out next season if we're not careful. I'm not being negative but just realistic.

I'll be honest and remove Seabourne from my list as I only saw him a couple of times before his absence.

Whilst good hard working individuals who pull on their shirt and play to their best they can't be allowed near the pitch when playing some of the best teams/players in the world. Fans have to accept players come and go and serve a purpose. Their purpose was to get saints moving up the leagues. They were paid handsomely for that as it was their job. They reached their peak and now they must either play bench warming exercises or find another club to benefit from their ability. . Watching those guys defend takes me back to the Richard Dryden era which in all honesty gives me the creeps![/p][/quote]How can you say Seabourne won't cut it, he was class at the start of the season before the injury. If he can get back to that standard then there's definitely a place for him (it's up to NA to decide if he has recovered). Not sure about the logic of getting rid of three out of four full-backs, I'd keep Richardson and Harding, as both are decent, but would like Clyne to join from Palace as he has potential and pace. People said Lambert wouldn't cut it in the Championship and where are they now? I reckon whoever NA says is good enough, is good enough.[/p][/quote]The logic behind getting rid of three is that you replace them! I love what those (and all the players) have done for us over the last couple of seasons but there's a point where you can't hold on to sentiment. It's a delicate situation because we have a great setup with an amazing unit however we need strong and talented defenders. We've got amazing attacking prowess but our defence will be like and open wound week in week out next season if we're not careful. I'm not being negative but just realistic. .

Simple post but spot on ! Guly is a premiership player, I think he will do well as I reckon he will shine against the very biggest clubs. De Ridder is good but the team doesn't play tactically to suit his style.
De Ridder has the pace for the Prem and personaly I think that Guly thinks too fast for his fellow team-mates (eg. he sometimes knocks the ball into space that no one is actually in, as is the Brazilian way).

Both these players could come off the bench together and combine, the goal at Reading springs to mind.

Personally I think Butterfield, guly and fox deserve a crack at the prem, butterfield is a solid typical right back, also he has not had the benefit of having the same player in front of him for a consecutive number of games, as for left back, fox is left with extra players attacking him at times because of the way we use Lallana. Its the Southampton way, and they are good at it hence the final league position

I like Roy Hodgson, and think he'll get us organised and everyone will know what to do. We've got to accept that we can't really compete with the top teams playing good football, we're really Quarter-Final standard, and anything beyond that is good I reckon. I think we'll be playing on the break against the likes of Spain and Germany, which might work better than trying to outplay them. Roy's experienced at getting average teams punching above their weight which should help.

We've got to accept that we can't really compete with the top teams playing good football, we're really Quarter-Final standard, and anything beyond that is good I reckon. I think we'll be playing on the break against the likes of Spain and Germany, which might work better than trying to outplay them. Roy's experienced at getting average teams punching above their weight which should help. Aren't all 4 of the youth players promoted to the first team England Youth internationals?[/p][/quote]i think that the fact that they are expecting to under achieve takes the pressure of a little. i think we are better than that and at least R Hodgson . and write his own team sheet unlike Harry Houdeanie :) willygetaway

in reponce to you yes i was and have always been. home games are they and do you look though those bins that have dark clouds over them all the time doom and gloom merchants should clear off.

i hear your opinion but the fact is your opinion does not match alot of others on here so that tends to say something about your knoledge of the game.

clear it down the park mmmmmm let me think.. under pressure from attaker the only place to put it was for a corner. so not his fault i stand by what i said guly was at fault for the goal not brave enough to put his head in. he lost us the goal.

but still WUM'S will always come out with cr4p plastic i was only refering to the fact you appear on here when we got to the prem and come out with a right old load of tosh..

so you want a new back 4 new mid and a striker, oh and a new keeper. if you want that you'd better of going to watch the blue few down the road as that is what is going to happen with them.


you might want to use the quote button under the comment it makes it eaisier to respond to you answers or are you only 12 years old since you have only had a "SEASON ticket" for "10 YEARS". enjoy your last day at school this friday..

Just looking at an article on the Guardian site. All the released players. Depending on wages, but a keeper in Craig Gordon,Jaaskelainen or Tomasz Kuszczak could be a good cover for KD. Midfield, I think we could do alot worse than Danny Murphy-would bring a bit of class, composure and experience. I like Paul Scharner who's released at WBA too. I'd still have Owen IF he was on pay as you play, and IF he would take a big wage cut(depends how keen he is for a final flourish, or if he is happy with a pay cheque)

Saints were under a lot of pressure when he came on with literally only minutes to go.
I agree Dan Harding did make a mistake and should have kicked into touch.
In his defence, he had had no time to get into the pace of the game at all.
You say you attended the match then you will now remember it as it actually was.

No Dan Harding is the worst, he doesn't even merit a place in the saints squad let alone be cover for LB.
Such a rediculous thought that dan harding is a good player.

Contradiction do you think?
