Could Dressing Room Bust Up Stir Passion
Tuesday, 2nd Oct 2018 20:22
Rumours have emerged of a dressing room bust up after the defeat at Wolves with Mark Hughes and Wesley Hoedt having "strong words"
Feelings were running high after the late capitulation against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and a source close to the club has suggested that Mark Hughes and Wesley Hoedt were the main participants to such a degree that they are not speaking to each other.
It is not surprising that things came to a head after yet another game that saw soft goals conceded and yet more points dropped and it will be now interesting to see whether this is a catalyst that sparks a Saints revival in the coming weeks.
Certainly something has to happen. there is a distinct lack of passion and motivation in Saints play of late and although they did not play badly at Wolves, there was a lack of a spark that we have seen in other teams this season, Saints squad on paper is better than Bournemouth's and other premier league side, so why does it not play with the tempo and enthusiasm of these sides.
The answer is there is something missing and sometimes a clear the air bust up can be a benefit rather than a hindrance, we will soon see !

Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
