Ive obviously misunderstood the point of a forum. I thought it was to exchange views on players, matches, the club, the opposition etc. Football is all about opinions. Self righteous buggers coming on here when the team are having a good run is laughable. If a player gets slated it doesn’t mean those slating them are anti that player. I’m not a huge fan of Stephens, but of late he’s played well, good for him, good for the club and good for the supporters. Not being a fan of his doesn’t mean I’m sat in the stands and hoping he’ll **** up to prove my opinions right because he is representing Southampton and therefore we all want him and any other player to do well.

 

But if players aren’t performing what’s the point of a forum if you can’t discuss it with other fans without being branded as “anti” this, “anti” that ?

 

He’s the biggest plum on here I wouldn’t worry.

Remember Dowie's name being booed when announced on the tannoy. And yes Franny used to get absolutely savaged from some in the stands.

May I bring the thread back to injuries? Or the lack of them. Apparently we are one of only two Premier League clubs not to have suffered any additional injuries during the "ludicrous" Xmas/New Year pileup of fixtures. The other is Everton.

Not all of it is directly attributable to the number of games, some clubs need to take a look at themselves and understand that their methods for training and recovery need to be reviewed and improved. Maybe something that dinosaurs like Steve Bruce need to be more aware of.

Agreed. Our sports science guys need to take a bow. The full backs, Hoj and especially JWP, have worked ridiculously hard over this period and have looked fresh throughout. Moreover, Ings has stayed injury free and looked strong when played. Newcastle have lost loads of players to hamstrings which is largely avoidable with the right training, recovery, stretching, pilates, etc.

That was us until a couple of seasons ago. We had a consistently awful injury record, in stark contrast to Leicester who never seemed to have more than one or two injuries (especially during their miracle season). I think Pearson had a lot to do with that, and they have continued it to this day.

 

Something seems to have changed at SMS, and credit to our current (new?) physios/sport science guys for turning it around.

 

It's massive keeping the majority of players fit. Bournemouth and Newcastle being prime examples of what happens if you don't.

Watch Villa start to slide further down the table too due to injuries.

They've just signed Danny Drinkwater on loan for the rest of the season to cover the injury to McGinn.

Surprised to see no discussion over who's going to be our RB over the next couple of games with Valery still not ready to return.

 

Danso looked a little lost in the Huddersfield game so I suppose it's going to be a case of fitting a square peg into a round hole again?

Thought I saw something about the Sport Science department at Southampton University and its tie-in we have have had with them for many years, when the boys return after their summer break most of the body analysis is done by people from the Uni who crunch the numbers to both parties benefit. They learn, we learn and the depth of knowledge over the years of working together must be quite significant most likely helps to develop the right maintenance package for each player.

Prowse seemed quite comfortable there Tuesday, in which case I guess we'd have to start Romeu in the middle.

Yoshida has played RB a few times, although not particularly well if I recall.

 

But with Bednarek still out (I assume?), I would rather he played in the centre for our next couple of games rather than Vestergaard, whose lack of pace and mobility will be ruthlessly exposed by Spurs and Liverpool.

Yoshida is woeful at full back! I think Stephens was slightly better at full back, and didn't Ramsey have a game or two at right back a year or so back? Wasnt stand out, but dont think was especially bad either?

Still no update on Sam McQueen then?

 

It's been well over a year now since he did his ACL. I can only assume in this instance that no news is bad news.

Any news on Armstrong? We missed him on Saturday
Ralph says better than expected but unlikely to play tomorrow.

That's a huge relief. Far more important than the loss, even though that p!ssed me off significantly.

James Ward-Prowse is only going to be fit for the Burnley game because he's being fed Zaha's tears through an IV Drip. #SaintsFC

JWP back in full training for the first time today. Ralph confident he'll be available for the Burnley game.

Yep, played every minute this season apart from when he went off injured I think. And run the second most in the league behind Kante who definitely isn't human.

This may be complete rubbish but I have been told that we picked up 6 long to medium term injuries yesterday and that does not include Redmond who is likely to be out for the rest of this season. Not sure of names but believed to be Djenepo,Boufal,Ings,Bertrand, JWP and Stephens

According to RH post match interview redmond out for 1-2 months :uhoh:

 

On the upside, this will please those who have been called for Redmond to be dropped.

And just what fount of knowledge told you that?

 

Surprised that if they are medium to long term injuries that five of them were running around well enough at 90 mins yesterday.

 

I suspect your five first words are the most accurate part of your post.

Stephens kept to the middle third of the pitch towards the end of the game yesterday as he seemed to be moving slowly. Commented at the time that it wasn't like him not to be giving 100% and would have expected him to go off if we had any subs left.

Ings and Djenepo were in yesterday's recovery training pictures.

I accept that you posted in good faith, but sometimes it's good to question sources. Unfortunately there are plenty around who spread rumours (especially those of doom and gloom) as a wind-up.

I think we've lost Boufal for a bit, Redmond is obviously out too.

 

Stephens was heavily limping quite a bit I noticed, and so was Long at some stages - but everyone else seemed ok.

 

But we don't have a deep squad with enough quality, so we will be hit by injuries and they will hit our form. This is why January shouldn't have been ignored as it was. Oh sorry, we did buy someone! But we had to let someone go first....

Quite a few familiar faces missing from training today.
Prowse, Boufal, Walker-Peters and Long were the only ones I couldn't make out from the training pictures yesterday (apart from Redmond, obviously).

 

Although I thought I read somewhere else that Boufal was fine. So who knows?
