    Default Hojbjerg

    Lost his dad at 18. Bayern seemed to do a lot to help him.

    Very intelligent and grounded lad.

    Sad we won’t be able to keep hold of him.

    I hope so. I think it would actually do his career the world of good. (Biased opinion from me of course)

    Please tell me we've done some groundwork in how we're going to approach it next season!

    ITK snippet?

    I'd be happy with that - whatever league we're in. Clear out the old-guard, start afresh.

    I think he will stand out in the champ.
    I like him. Great attitude and appears to give it his all.

    Too good for the championship unfortunately. Very underrated by a lot of the people on here for a long, long time. Would be great to keep him

    No he isn't if anything he is an average player who gets a bit of a free pass from fans because he talks a good game in interviews.

    A very promising player being poorly managed IMO. Remember how bad Schneiderlin and Lallana when we got relegated to League 1? Along came Pardew, Adkins and some quality team mates and they were decent players. Him and Romeu should be a rock solid midfield duo but it just hasn't happened. Yet.

    Correct. He also won't stick around if/when we are relegated. Bayern's cast-offs do not play in the Chumpionship.

    Lallana & Morgan both good examples of being managed well, but then also being surrounded by big personalities & experience.

    Here's another article, credited to a different writer, based on exactly the same interview:

    Look at some of the players Wolves have in the Championship this season. No reason why we can't keep Hojbjerg.

    Wolves is a very unique situation. I’d probably compare us to Newcastle (all be it they are a much bigger club) when they kept hold of their players.

    Yes I agree, I was just illustrating that going down doesn't necessarily mean we will lose all of our better players.

    If we have an owner who's prepared to spend the required dosh. All indications are that Mr. Invisible has no such intention. Hope I'm wrong.

    I like the cut of this lads jib. He gives everything on the pitch and has an admirable care about the job he’s employed to do with the employer he’s contracted to. If he stays (i.e. Reed doesn’t sell him in panic) he will stand out in the Championship.

    The Newcastle Championship season was something I’d hoped we could emulate. For some reason I thought they only lost Wijnaldum to Liverpool but then I looked it up, and there was Sissoko to Spurs (can’t believe I forgot that, it was very entertaining), Janmaat went to Watford, Cisse to China and a few others. So I’m expecting departures but hopefully not the entire starting 11.

    I think Hoj would be a great one to keep for the Championship.

    Wish you hadn’t said that. I recall Prutton missing an absolute sitter at the Hawthorns during the relegation season, which had it been scored could have turned the whole season.

    You seem a tad obsessed with PEH. There would be plenty more deserving to vent you anger at before getting to him.

    What two posts (make that three now) on a player thread is obsessed now?

    but you are right there are plenty of players who deserve the fans scorn Hoj's thread just happened to be near the top of the page though so..

    I thought he faded and taking him off ahead of Lemina just about right but could have been one or the other, and the change of tactics was sensible.

    He needs to stop giving the ball away. That's one thing he's always managed to do well.

    There's obviously talent there - somewhere - but he needs to show it. At the moment he's just a walking soundbite for the fans to lap up.

    Too many flicks today. Doesn’t hold the ball and hold off the opposition as well as Redmond, for example.

Always chats to my lad when he seems him, he's only 5 and doesn't really understand what it means to be the England manager except he should play for England because he's the fastest and can beat Ruben and Henry and Lightning McQueen

    Seems the Danish national manager has noticed a change in Hojs attitude.

    Southampton player now acting for team “and not just himself”,

    He has potential, him and Lemina could be very good.

    He's probably realized that the stepping stone is higher than he initially thought

    This was a guy playing for Bayern Munich at 17, so he clearly always had talent and he's also physically well suited to centre-mid, so it was just about him being more consistent on the pitch, good he is finally showing it.

    If he comes it up we'll probably be fending of clubs higher up again.

    Would like him to be our captain in the future.

    Easily been Saints best player to start the season. Hopefully he keeps this form up and the rest of the team comes along for the journey.

    He is doing well to setup his next move. Fair play to the lad.

    I'll admit to not being a big fan of his the last couple of seasons. He has stepped up this season though so fair play to the lad. 4-4-2 does seem to suit him.

    Showing more strength, more desire and has the confidence to shoot now.

    He's going to become a very decent player for us.
