Jose Fonte's Lille team won again They have the best defensive record in Europe and are now clear at the top of the French League, unbeaten in their last ten games and they've only conceded 2 goals in all of them.

It's okay. We just need Hoedt to get a run of 6-8 games and we'll soon forget Fonte ever played for us.

Yeah, brilliant, but absolutely nothing to do with defending in England

According to the BBC VVD had said this on social media.  "I'm ready for the challenge ahead." 

I suppose that's the challenge of earning several million pounds a year for NOT playing football. What a brave soldier he is.  Get real VVD.......Arrogant ******. Unless of course he's going to work for the NHS during his absence.

Anyway VVD I hear Barcelona is nice this time of year and good for recuperating.

He defended in England brilliantly for us, just the same as he is doing in France for Lille now. 

Mark Wright defended brilliantly for us, but I wouldn’t want him playing now. How did Jose defend for West Ham? You know, the last club he played for in the league we’re in?

Hi Virg, Now you have some time on your hands perhaps you'd like to give some more thought to working in Spain? Not like you've got anything else to do at the moment. As you yourself once said, a career in football can be very short, so why spend the rest of it in a shithole like Merseyside? Sincerely, Ronald

The Koeman era really isn’t going well at Barca is it! Fans want him out already such has been his impact, seems they’ve got the Everton version of Ronald and not the Saints one.

 It's a poisoned chalice for any manager to be honest, a disjointed and imbalanced squad with little movement to improve.

Players like Griezman, Dembele, Coutinho aren't Barcelona players - upwards of $300m spent on those. They just don't fit that club.

Then they've got Martin Braithwaite coming off the bench. They need a lot of work, they've regressed back to the early 00's

For anyone that is interested/hasn't seen it, Pochettino was the guest on MNF tonight. He spoke very highly about his time at Southampton and the staff and players he had here. I also liked the way he was very quick to praise Nigel Adkins for the fitness and quality of the squad he inherited. The whole video is below but the section on Southampton starts at 26:45.

After being left out by Puel,  Fonte finally got his chance to play in the San Siro and captained his Lille team to a 3-0 victory over AC Milan: the first time Milan have conceded 3 goals at home in a European game since 2011.

Jordan Turnbull scored a cracker on Friday night, shame it was at the wrong end.

Another of our former academy products, Jason McCarthy, has managed 2 OGs in his last 5 appearances for Wycombe.

He must have been reading from a Scott Marshall textbook laying around.  Two OGs in his only two Saints appearances. One of those was off his arse if I remember correctly.
