    Default Saints vs Newcastle Build Up Thread

    Andy Carroll is just back from injury it seems. So off the bench to get a couple of headed goals, and then go off injured again for 6 months?

    Need a performance after the non display today. Cut out the stupid mistakes, stop rolling over and getting bullied and there's no reason why we shouldn't win this one. If we play to our potential, 2 nil Saints, if we go into lethargic couldn't give a toss mode, 0 - 1 Newcastle after 88 minutes of shyte. What team is going to show up?

    Steve Bruce will know exactly what to do to get a 0-0 or 0-1.

    We’ve let West Ham and Burnley do the double over us, might as well as the Geordies to that list.

    Had a look at buying a ticket, Cat A game £40 adult , £20 under 11 behind the goal, haha f@ck right off.

    He still might, but he was a shoe in 2-3 weeks ago.

    1-2 (Hojbjerg to score after 18 mins, then Carroll x2 after 82 and 91 mins).

    Really don't think I can be arsed to watch the game. Watching us playing against defensive teams at home is less enjoyable than staring at a messy diarreha splat for the afternoon.

    The reality is, since Cédric left, JWP is our best RB (as well as CM). Highlights the shambolic decision to let him leave.

    Letting him go was ridiculous, but he is injured so we'd be no worse off if he was still here.

    Hopefully we get a reaction from the players after Ralph called them out on that diabolical display.
    Would prefer we play one of our right backs, allowing us to go back to the first choice 2 in the middle.

    Forgot about this. I think they have been putting out fairly strong sides in the cup, so lets hope it takes it out of them.

    Think we'll do Newcastle.

    Hopefully have Djenepo and Ings back into the XI and a proper RB so JWP can go back into centre midfield.

    Think Ings should be back but rather doubt Djenepo will make it. Boufal has one more chance to step up. If that's not working, we need some sort of Plan B - maybe Long or Adams alongside Armstrong until Djenepo or Redmond is back.

    I agree that this is the game to get JWP back into midfield. Probably KWP to start.

    We need something from this, or alarm bells will start again.

    They won’t be match fit as they haven’t played any matches. Strangely Boufal was yesterday despite also missing a game with injury.

    Well at lest if he was fit he would have played, we’ve got two who are behind a midfielder for that position.

    Looks like poor ticket sales for this one so far. Not exactly catching the imagination. Anyone know if Romsey-Salisbury landslip fixed? I’m due to travel down by rattler on Sat morning.

    So after learning from West ham, what would you do if you were Steve Bruce...give us the ball, bully us on 50/50 challenges, hit us on the break and thump high balls into our area up to anybody and wait for us to fail to clear it...

    Hopefully we will have Djenepo back and we can create chances going forward. The Ings / Long chasing long balls down trick has been found out...we need options in and around the box other than Ings. This is the game for Che Adams to start and score a brace.

    If there’s no djenepo or Redmond, could Valery not be a more advanced option if boufal isn’t working out.

    No last I heard that train line will be closed until end of April, bus replacements, useless. Depending on where you’re travelling from could take a different route.

    With Norwich and West Ham both getting home wins at the weekend we’re back to being officially the worst home side in the division, not surprisingly fans aren’t rushing to buy tickets.

    The gutless capitulation against WH before Christmas and Ralph not happy saw the reset button get hit and we went on a little run, hopefully with Ralphs comments post Saturdays game feeling like deja vu hopefully reset will be hit again.
    Trouble is when you click through the turnstile on a matchday you have no idea what is going to be on the menu when the ref blows the whistle to start the game.
    Will it be Al-dente or just soft and soggy?
    Given up guessing

    I'm a season ticket holder so not not answering for myself but not sure I agree with you at today's prices. Matchday prices are are very expensive and by attending will stop supporters being able to do 'other' activities with their family.

    Where do you draw the line? £40 adult , £20 under 11 , Newcastle at home, seems a bit steep!

    £60 in block 32. It is a bit steep, very steep. Expecting cartwheels for that.

    Counter their direct style with Vestergaard, 343, get the wing backs pushing forward.

    Would play Valery with that in mind if he's fit. Or even JWP out there for delivery and Armstrong in the middle.

    Think it's time to give Adams a start in the league, swear he'll actually score one of these days.

    We have one of the worst attendances in the league in terms of percentage of capacity. Club have got the pricing dreadfully wrong this season.

    Absolutely. I know Cedric was temporarily injured, but we should have kept him until the end of the season. We were in relegation trouble at the time too (and still could be)

    Our season tickets are somewhat okay priced in the Itchen North though, and they’ve not sold out.

    However agreed that they messed up on individual pricing for games.

    Anyhow- fully expecting us to lose because that is what we are masters at- doing rubbish when expected to win.

    Unfortunately would say Boufal has had his time here and we need raw pace to start with like Redmond or Djenepo- Boufal better off the bench to unlock a game with a tiring defence, not as a starter.

    If Redmond or Djenpo are back then would feel a lot more confident tbf.

    Saints 0 Newcastle 0 my prediction then until we get an update on team news and stuff for both teams.

    (hopefully Andy Carroll will be missing- our centrebacks just struggle so much against any the big strikers)

    Carroll’s record against us is absurd: https://www.transfermarkt.bg/andy-ca...us//gegner/180

    Also SSN highlighting Newcastle having the worst attacking stats in the Premier League. We’re being set up for a another defeat.

    Wow I hadn’t looked on the side, super value 60 hard earned pounds for a ticket in block 32, you might sell tickets at that price to tourists / glory hunters against the big 5 but your every day normal Saints fan isn’t going to be tempted unless the game is of big significance.

    Newcastle are close to selling 3000 (£30) tickets so that will boost the numbers a bit.

    They’re taking 5000 to West Brom tonight, impressive numbers, hopefully a tough game for them to give us an advantage for Saturday.

    Why's everyone worried about Carroll? Unsurprisingly, he's out injured for at least another two weeks.

    Saint-Maximin was dropped last week after a fall out with Bruce.

    Time to bring back Valery then

    This is a prime example of a 'winnable home game' that we have consistently failed to win for the past 4 years. Would happily take a draw from this. Newcastle will make things difficult for us.

    Saints 0-0 Newcastle

    Allan Saint-Maximin’s future at Newcastle is in doubt after Steve Bruce dropped him for Saturday’s goalless draw with Burnley, then claimed the winger was struggling with a hamstring injury.

    Sources insist the 22-year-old is fully fit and available for selection, even though manager Bruce said yesterday he was a doubt for tonight’s FA Cup tie at West Bromwich because of back and hamstring issues.

    Wolves and Crystal Palace are monitoring developments after learning of the situation.

    The SJP crowd sang for the introduction of their favourite in the second half of the game against Burnley and he was finally brought on with 12 minutes remaining.

    It has been suggested that Bruce was trying to protect Saint-Maximin by saying he is carrying a slight injury, rather than revealing he had been dropped, although Newcastle maintain he was struggling with a hamstring problem on Thursday and the manager chose not to risk him.

    Sportsmail understands there have been concerns about the Frenchman’s recent performances in training and Bruce decided he wanted to field a team he could rely on against Burnley.

    However, it is claimed a number of players have been frustrated with the tactics employed, believe the team should be playing better football, and are more capable than Bruce is making out in public.

    After a run of one win in 10 league matches, Newcastle are five points off the bottom three and could do without a fallout between their head coach and arguably their best outfield player. Indeed, the Magpies have won only one game without him in the starting XI.

    Saint-Maximin signed a six-year contract in the summer after joining for £16million from Nice and looked set for a bright future on Tyneside following an excellent first half of the season.

    However, there is likely to be no shortage of interest in the former France Under 21 star should relations fail to improve in the coming months.

    Saint-Maximin has scored two goals in 19 appearances and has thrilled the Toon Army with his explosive pace and direct play.

    To be fair, Saint-Maximin does have a touch of the old Adama Traores about him: great ability, dribbling, speed, but hopeless end product.

    Someone decent will take a punt on him if he becomes available and see if they can't harness all that potential.

    I'd have him at Saints in a heartbeat.

    Always worth a gamble, so much talent. Plus Boufal and Djenepo aren't exactly goalscorers and full of end product.

    The number of times I wanted us to sign Traore and people said he was rubbish. Plenty of players just need time and coaching. I'd include Che Adams in that, to a lesser extent and lesser talent. But no reason he can't become more effective than Long, or even replicate Ings in the premier league.
