Southampton's assistant manager Andy Crosby hails Jay Rodriguez

Daily Echo: Crosby hails Jay’s ‘massive impact’ Crosby hails Jay’s ‘massive impact’

JAY Rodriguez proved he has what it takes to challenge Rickie Lambert for a place in the Saints side with a match winning display against Sheffield Wednesday.

The £7m summer signing from Burnley has had a frustrating start to life at St Mary’s, initially finding himself playing out on the left before being omitted from the team altogether.

Rodriguez has had to wait patiently for a chance to play as an out and out striker with Lambert starting the season in such fine form but he grabbed it with both hands last night, netting two goals to secure a 2-0 win over the Owls in the Capital One Cup third round.

Though Lambert doesn’t look like being dislodged from the first team anytime soon, Rodriguez proved that he is ready to push the club’s main man all the way if his level drops at all.

Saints assistant manager Andy Crosby said: “He has had to wait for his chance but he’s been a great character around the place.

“He’s a good age and it was a great first touch for his first goal and he’s finished it well.

“He had a massive impact and I thought his movement was excellent against two centre halves who perhaps wanted him to come short.

“I thought his movement in between and down the sides was really good and he is one of many players who has taken his opportunity.

“We know that’s where he’s most comfortable (as an out and out striker) and he’s got good competition in front of him at the moment but whenever you get an opportunity you’ve got to take it and he’s done that.

“Whenever he’s needed we know he’s more than ready.”

Saints fielded a much more experienced side than expected for the Wednesday match and made light work of dispatching their Championship opponents, giving Dave Jones’ side little hope of getting anything from the tie.

“I think the way we set about the game made it a comfortable night,” reflected Crosby.

“I thought we were excellent first half, moved the ball really well, applied pressure to them high up the pitch.

“At half time it was could we improve our quality in the final third? – because we had three or four one-on-ones and crossing opportunities – but all in all it was a great night’s work.

“It was a more senior looking team than the first round as we’ve had players coming in during the transfer window which has added competition and whenever you play – whether it’s a Premier League game or a Capital One Cup game – you’ve got to take that opportunity and we have to produce performances and results.”

The only downer on proceedings was the knee injury suffered by Jack Cork on what was his first start this season.

“We don’t know at the moment. I think his studs got stuck in the turf a little bit and he’s come off and we’ll have to assess that,” said Crosby.

The assistant manager also confirmed that Luke Shaw was missing through illness, that Tadanari Lee has an elbow problem which will sideline him for a week or so and that Emmanuel Mayuka wasn’t risked after picking up a knock on his ankle against Aston Villa at the weekend.

The draw for the fourth round of the Capital One Cup will be made after this evening’s ties.

It's fantastic to have this strength in depth (apart from defence!) something we've never really had before.

God forbid Rickie gets crocked we will be fine.

Nice to know we have the quality of J Rod as back up.
Still finding it hard though to see us spend £7m on someone to warm the bench........

Exactly. Times have indeed changed.

Spending 7 million on a young, up-and-coming, British striker isn't actually that much - look at how much was spent on Carroll, or on Fletcher at Sunderland for that matter.

Top-drawer strikers are usually well over 10 mill nowadays, so spending 7 mill on a back-up (hopefully future first choice) isn't that big a deal.

Another slant on the J-Rod / RL situation. Was it possible that some doubts were thought, not neccessarily expressed, that RL would not succeed at premiership level and J-Rod was seen as a young, hungary, footballer in line with the club's apparent philosophy of building a young and talented squad . His success, albeit extremely welcome, may eventually give rise to J-Rod being unhappy at being on the bench game after game. If RL's form continues and he remains fit it could be a couple of seasons before J-Rod sees regular first team football. After all Billy Sharp left very quickly and surely much of that reasoning was down to obviously limied 1st team chances.

A great performance from Jay last night but unless NA reverts to a 4-4-2 system i reckon that Rodriguez will spend most of the season on the bench or playing out of position.Still i think that in the longterm he will get to play on a regular basis.Whether he will end up a Saints hero following in the footsteps of those other ex Burnley greats who served Saints so well over the years.e.g.Brian O'Neill,Dave DOCKER Walker, and Dave Merrington.

Tbf the strength we have upfront and in the middle keeps even the likes of Rickie and Adam on their toes when previously they were guaranteed, if fit, a starting position.

It's why, contrary to what that wise sage Toborea says, cup runs are a good thing as it provides matches for the players trying to force their way in to get a game.

The bestest bestest ever anywhere ever teams have such strength in depth. That is why the skunts have a squad of only 18.

Get a grip nipper,competition for places is healthy for any team ,and if any player cant find the stomach to fight for that right they can go.
You like starting the odd rumour then?
I dont see Jrod as a "bench warmer",he,s a quality player who has to fight for the right to be in the side,no different than Super Kelv wrestling with Boruc for the number one jersey,your either up for it or your not.Its amazing how we crave for competition for places then decry the battler for being left out-NA cant win.
J rod is a great player and Sir rickie knows it,why do you you think Sir Rickie is playing so well,I would like to suggest its because Jrod is breathing down his neck.I rest my case......

It is still a good question. Does J Rod want to be with a Prem side on the bench or a Champ side playing regularly. He would not be first choice for any Prem club so he has to manage his expectations.

I for one cannot wait to see him in the first team with Gaston and Adam providing the ammo.

Jay keep on the bus - it is going places COYR

Of course I was there, I am not happy with the absentees either, but that is what you expect if you are going to see the "B" Team playing a mid table Championship side in a fairly unimportant Cup match, the fact that we have a much larger stadium emphasises the apparent emptiness, just under 10,000 would look quite impressive in your lowly cattle shed. Try counting the empty seats on October 7th when Fulham visit.

Another slant on the J-Rod / RL situation.

His success, albeit extremely welcome, may eventually give rise to J-Rod being unhappy at being on the bench game after game. If RL's form continues and he remains fit it could be a couple of seasons before J-Rod sees regular first team football. After all Billy Sharp left very quickly and surely much of that reasoning was down to obviously limied 1st team chances.

How very observant of you, albeit it it was still a attendance likely not to be bettered by your lot on a Saturday league fixture.

And we are still in the competition, unlike your lot.

So swim along little fishy one.

How about you fill one of those seats for the next Capital One tie? A good chance for you to watch some quality football. I travelled all the way from Sydney to attend our first two home games this season. Does that suggest anything to you about the loyalty of Saints fans?

Very disappointed with the crowd on Tuesday night when you look at all the other ties including those premier teams playing lower division opposition. I know it was a second string team but so were most of the others. Any reasons?
