our form over the past 12 months suggests otherwise

True - its been immense!!..although we were always going to suffer an injury or two to a key players at some point, which for a club our size stops us in our tracks. I can't see who is going to replace him up front and offer the same threat.

It was never going to be a good time for Danny Ings to get injured for us. Perhaps better though, that we already have 13 points in the bag rather than being stuck around the relegation zone on 3 points. If Theo stays fit, that could be a very good and timely bit of business for us. A goal for him on Friday would do wonders. 

Indeed. Ings isn't some mythical figure and we aren't a one man team, particularly this year where we have added a lot to our game. I reckon we will still nick a few good results and I expect us to win.

I'll stop worrying then and look forward to his goal fest.

I'd stop worrying completely. When you've figured out how worrying is going to help us score goals, let us know.

I don’t think we’ve relied on Ings so much this season, as we did in the last. 

 

Scored the winner against Burnley, scored our opener at Chelsea, set up both goals against Everton, and scored the winner against Villa. He’s directly contributed to 10 of our 13 points.

But yeah, we’ve not really relied on him this season 🤣.

He will be a big loss, let’s not kid ourselves otherwise. Let’s just hope it is 4-6 weeks, can’t say I trust the club spill on injuries given that Salisu was going to be ready in October.

5 Nov 2019 to 5 Nov 2120 is quite a range. I would have thought they might have played a few more matches in that time period.....

It's an ominous sign that covid is going to get much, much worse in this international break and the human race will never recover. 

Still, at least Saints were top of the league when the world ended.

Precaution due to a tight hamstring it seems.

And Jannik not travelled either - has this been confirmed?

If so, good news for us. Pointless games. Use the time to get rid of the niggles, and continue to work on the training ground with the majority of the squad.

Perhaps we're getting a bit more savvy over discovering minor injuries rather than letting key players risk injury in pointless matches.

I doubt JWP sees them as pointless matches. He has only recently got back into a competitive squad and is in great form. Euros on the horizon.

It must be a genuine concern for him to pull out.

I doubt he's that worried. With Southgate's fixed idea of who he wants, Prowsie will only ever be a bit-part player, if at all.

I'm sure his first priority is Saints

Who the **** is Jude Bellingham?

Wonderkid who played for Birmingham. In the summer got a move to Dortmund and Birmingham were so enamoured with the 17 year old they retired his squad number, which they were widely mocked for.

For one, with my selfish Saints hat on, I am pleased JWP has pulled out of the England squad. Personally, the way he is playing at present I think he would be as big a miss for us as Danny Ings and maybe even more so. He is driving that midfield (big credit to Romeu as well by the way) and so much of our game is going through him. It's not a World Cup. it's not even the Euros (I don't think) in fact I'm not sure what it is. JWP has played every minute since the first lockdown (as far as I know) and deserves a rest.

Yes, I had the same evil thought. What are we like eh?

We'll only know for sure when the line ups are announced for the Wolves game, see if he's fit for that. 

Does make sense having played on the Friday give him a week off to recharge the batteries / rest the hamstring then plenty of time to prepare for the next league game. 

Compared to the club's in Europe our squad generally have plenty of recovery time between games, small advantage to help level the playing field.

If he starts vs Wolves, can we expect Southgate to ostracise him from future squads? That's his excuse for not calling up Bertrand when he was England's only fit LB...

Guess that depends on whether he actually joined up with the squad or not. Was he sent home by England or did he withdraw before he headed from St George's? Haven't seen that detailed anywhere.

We're a top 4 club now so have a divine right to hold players back from England duty.

Nor Walcott.

Walcott certainly took a few knocks in the Newcastle game, hand / arm strapped up and the challenge for what should have been a penalty.  Quite lucky that we haven't got a game this week.

His hand is broken. Not sure if that will stop him playing.

Nice to hear on the Ralph thread (Kicker Interview) that Danny Ings is looking good for just the 4 week recovery. Would mean he could be back for the Brighton away game or would he still need to work up match fitness from that point?

Bench or following week I imagine
