    Hope so, but Ralph has yet to experience Saints v weak team after playing well against better teams.

    Just looking on their forum I thought we were a pessimistic lot

    Highlight was one of them wishing they had quality like Austin and Long to come off the bench ....

    We could let a couple of them make a guest appearance on here, couple of sound observations about us

    Watched their highlights against Newcastle. Surprised to see they had 74% possession.

    They've struggled to score this season but they will have a couple of big lumps to pick from up front who will no doubt cause us problems.

    Big lumps always seem to do well against us. We should get one. Lukaku on the cheap/loan to revitalise his career?

    They really do. Steve Mounie is back from suspension (I think) & they have Laurent Depoitre. Neither has scored this season, so you know what will happen.

    Do you really think Ralph to Utd is possible at this time..... But after reading your posts on here I suspect you actually do

    Reckon he will take Lemina too ?

    Isn't the bigger concern that if Utd take Poch (which is highly likely), then it's not unlikely that Spurs could be after Ralph if he does an excellent job with us.

    More likely to look towards Wolves, Everton..or maybe Bournemouth than Ralph on the basis of one half season, if he keeps us up.

    Have you heard Ralph say 'Shuddersfield' perhaps they are after our result against the Gooners.

    Good turn out needed, with good noise. Hopefully after last weekend the players respond.
    The last thing we need after Arsenal is the Cardiff fiasco!

    I'll give OR the benefit of the doubt as he's barely played. Interested to see how Ralph lines us up for this.

    I like it a lot from the midfield onwards...

    Not sure 4 at the back favours either our centre-backs or our fullbacks at the moment.

    I would chuck Stephens into a false DM position, he could drop back into CB when defending. Redmond if fit

    Can't get to this one due to our family Christmas get together, so I'll have to keep checking for updates on the match thread via my mobile phone.

    Redmond in training photo - be great if we can have Redmond and Lemina fully fit for Saturday. Would be confident if so.

    Good news about Redmond. Mario to come straight back in as he's our best player

    Interesting to hear him say that 5 players have suddenly "recovered" from injury and that they've seen that "the train is leaving the station and they have to get on board".

    Cryptic message from Ralph. Think we’ll find out next month who got on and who missed the SFC train.

    Yes I know it's for the New Orleans Saints but it's the best I could find

    Hmmm. Who do we think he was referring to?

    Just watched the 2nd part of Ralph's pre match press conference. Don't think we'll be seeing many, if any, changes to the starting 11 vs Huddersfield. To paraphrase Ralph: "I have now found my first 11. Given how well they performed in the Arsenal game there is no reason to make changes" (or words to that effect)

    No Lemina to start then?

    I find it hard to believe he won't play Lemina, Bertrand, and Cedric when they are healthy.

    I get the feeling he might actually prefer Valery and Targett in the long run. Not sure how I feel about that but it wouldn't surprise me at all, especially if Bertrand leaves.

    His actual words:

    “In the moment I am happy that I find the first 11 that showed me against Arsenal that it is possible that it fits good together.

    I am not in the situation that I change everything because one or the other player is a little bit tired. That is not in my mind at the moment.

    I am glad that I find now a first 11 and to come in this team is not so easy at the moment because they put something in my account and showed me they are able to take a win."

    That's 3 players who could feasibly be off in a few weeks, as with Gabbi, so better to stick with the stayers if that is the case. And if that is the case, they are players that will raise decent money allowing RH to bring in players he will feel fits his philosophy.

    Hopeful but not complacent about the trip to Huddersfield.
