Saints travel to Old Trafford with the squad ravaged by injury's, have there been any miraculous recovery's or will we have to put out a patched up side to battle to avoid a 4th successive Premier League defeat.

There has been no miracle cures and all three players picking up injury's against Aston Villa will miss out, however Ralph Hasenhuttl has opted to stick with a solide foundation with two surprises in the starting line up.

Starting XI: McCarthy (GK), Ramsay, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Jankewitz, Ward-Prowse (c), Armstrong, Djenepo, Ings, Adams.

Subs: Forster (GK), Lewis (GK), Tchaptchet, Finnigan, Chauke, Watts, Chauke. Watts, Redmond, Nlundulu


Starting XI: de Gea (GK), Lindelöf, Maguire, Cavani, Rashford, Greenwood, Fred, Fernandes, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, McTominay
Subs: Henderson (GK), Bailly, Pogba, Martial, James, Telles, Matic, Williams, van de Beek.

Do you think that Ralph is making his point in his starting line up? You HAVE TO BE SORRY FOR HIM ... 5 players on our bench who have never kicked a ball in the Prem! Never mind our Chairman will dig deep in the summer --- Ha ! ha ha! WHAT a joke Geo is!

It’s just annoying watching us at the moment, I mean I just feel for Ralph as he’s doing the best he can as he always picks a starting lineup that we all pretty much agree with and is doing decent tactics, but we’ve had a lot of injuries which just shows of how we’ve got such a shit owner and board as our squad depth is just ridiculously thin! And yet we’ve done nothing about it!

I mean we simply lost that game down to that and that certain players just being purely rubbish! I mean in the end Bertrand has been poor recently and the likes of Djenpo is WORSE! Than Boufal! And for that Swedish youth player, well sheesh he wanted to play as he wondered why he never did... well there’s his answer!

VAR and mike dean though, I just can’t even be asked to talk about anymore!

One positive is simply that Ramsay was actually decent enough!

Btw you the hell was commentating in that game as one of them was a complete idiot who was blatantly a Man U fan going on about where cavani’s foot was for the penalty, idiot!

Wow - Mike Dean needs to be permanently barred from reffing any Saints games. VAR again was a joke. Che's goal should have counted and then the DIVE by Martial was so obvious when you watched the replay from behind. We need to appeal that red card. I feel bad for RH and I would not be surprised if he leaves us. I know you all will say I am a doomsdayer, but did you see his face after each of the last 3 goals. Again like my last post, nothing will change at Saints until Gao is gone. No we must hope to get out people back in time to get to 40 points. We are looking over our shoulder now.

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved the greatest cup giant-killing ever!

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
