    The Counting House is always popular (maybe too popular!!) getting served can be a pain, but quite convenient for the ground and there is a Tesco's (?) or similar to get a bag of crisps or a sarnie across the road!!
    Not that the weather is suitable this time of year, but useful for buying bottles/tins and sitting outside the pub without paying pub prices!!

    Ralph says Bertrand isn't match fit for LCFC.

    Obafemi is out a little longer than we had thought initially.

    He seemed quite upbeat about Gallagher's progress. Wouldn't surprise me to see him in the squad this weekend.

    Good stuff. Only heard a tiny bit of the presser so literally only heard the Bertrand bit.

    Perfect time for Sam (if he's anywhere near match-fit) with our current striker availability.

    Ings and Obafemi unavailable. Gallagher still returning to fitness. Gabbiadini gone to Sampdoria.

    Are we going to have to rely on Austin and/or Long up front again on Saturday? After how utterly useless they both were against Derby, I wouldn't be hopeful of us getting many (or any) goals if so.

    Defenders are going to have to earn their money with this game if we are to get any points from it.

    Blackmore saying Lemina out too. Squad near enough picks-itself with all these injuries.

    Wonder if Bertrand could be an option for the Derby replay.

    Same stomach issues as before, I guess.

    He was in the training pics, so I thought he'd be OK.

    Presume that's consistent with bans for similar offences?

    Somewhat a relief that he won’t start away to Leicester.
    Equally an opportunity for a younger player in the derby game

    Can someone recap which strikers we actually have fit and/or available? As well as maybe the defensive midfield?

  18. #118

    Gunn
    Stephens Vest Bednarek

    Redmond Long

    Long, Armstrong and Redmond up front. Barnes, Tyreke and Gallagher on bench is my guess

    Agree. Looks like our bench could be the most inexperienced of all time!

    Is Barnes registered for PL games now?

    Nothing unusual about that after all he is a professional footballer and if he does move he will want to stay match fit and hit the ground running at a new club. He cannot afford another Southampton in/out saga in his career.

    I'd rather Redmond up front with Armstrong and Sims - Long really isn't a start-the-game proposition. Is Lemina fit? If so, he should replace Ward-Prowse.

    Maybe Elyounoussi will have to play. I've been watching his old youtube videos to try and figure out what we possibly saw in him, and he hasn't always been a total non-footballer. There might be a player in there. God knows where, though.

    He surely can't be as bad as he's appeared to be so far. Surely...

    The last striker I can think of who was always available to play was Rickie Lambert.
    Why are our striker missing so many games through injury?

    Probably because we sign strikers with a history of injury problems.

    I don't like the idea of Lemina sitting in front of the defence, he lacks concentration and will leave OR isolated, remind us of are defensive record when we played Hoj and Lemina in the cm roles?

    So Ralph has said he know's who is going to be his number 1 keeper. Was coy when pushed but I guess we'll find out soon enough.....

    I like Lawro's prediciton.

    I will be very surprised if we win this tomorrow. I'm personally looking forward to the meltdowns.

    I also worry about Saints. I also like the manager. I also think we'll be fine.

    Against Leicester we'll run around a lot, look relatively promising in spells, then make two stupid mistakes at the back to lose 2-0.

    I don't think there is any inconsistency in that (cue surprise "well you're also an idiot" response)

    So only Long available. I'd start Gallagher if fit. I mean he can run around and close down like Long and I've more faith in him to become a goalscorer.

    I guess we go with Redmond and Long on the break and just hassle their defence. We need to play like they did but don't anymore. Puel wants them having more possession so let them have it, we'll hit them on the break. Vardy isn't great against a deer defence.

    352 with Redmond and Long up front. Armstrong supporting.

    I guess it'll be Long tomorrow, and maybe he will give Gallagher a go vs Derby next week.

    Any chance gallagher will be on the bench. 90 minutes of long is far too long.

  42. #142

    Hopefully a full week of training will help but we have to be far better in defence than we were at derby. Worrying that targett, vestergard, Stephens will start. Got to keep Maddison quiet, very good player. Should of been a player we went for last summer

    Armstrong redz and unfortunately long up front. Be good if we can get Gallagher off the bench for last 20 mins if we need him.

    I'd love us to go there, get 3 points and spell the end for Puel.
    Sadly I've not got a good feeling about this one with all the injuries & suspensions.

    Interesting that. I just had a look at his stats and the last league point won by a Shane Long goal, i.e. a game where we wouldn't have got that point without his goal, was nearly 3 years ago, February 2016, at Swansea and before that you'd have to go back to 2015 at Newcastle. So, on the few occasions he has scored in league games it's not made much difference.

    maybe be cabbage wasn’t relating the idiot comments to the other comments. Maybe he was just adding at the end that he was an idiot which he is by the way.

    I canít see us winning at all, given the number of players unavailable to us
