- Mon, 22 Oct 2018 07:12:36 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Southampton | The Guardian
Woefully leaky Fulham are on course to concede 100 goals, and is it nearly time for Álvaro Morata and Chelsea to part ways?
On the eve of the new season Slavisa Jokanovic said Fulham “don’t have to change much but we need to be intelligent. We need to grow up.” Two months down the line and either Jokanovic underestimated how much Fulham needed to adapt to be ready for the Premier League or his players are not being as smart as he had hoped. Whatever the answer, Fulham did not spend more than £100m in the summer to be languishing in the relegation zone with one win from nine games and a defensive record that is in danger of becoming an embarrassment. Alarm bells should be ringing after Cardiff, who had scored only four times in their opening eight games, doubled their tally for the season against Jokanovic’s porous team. As things stand, Fulham are on course to concede more than 100 goals this season. They need to wise up fast. Stuart JamesContinue reading...

Eddie Howe admitted Bournemouth were below their best as they stuttered to a goalless draw against Southampton. “I don’t think we really got going. It’s frustrating from our perspective, we know we can play better than that,” he said. “We never had our fluency. We created a few chances, the best went our way but we didn’t capitalise on them.”
While Southampton played their part in a tight encounter, they have gone 385 minutes without finding the net.Continue reading...
- Fri, 19 Oct 2018 13:57:44 +0000: Bournemouth v Southampton: match preview - Southampton | The Guardian
Mark Hughes played down the derby tag some have tried to apply to this fixture, saying that Portsmouth are Southampton’s rivals, but the fact is that Bournemouth are still the favourites for this one as they seek a third successive win while Southampton are in familiar territory near the bottom after one win in eight. Eddie Howe, who will make late decisions on the fitness of Ryan Fraser and Josh King, has been around long enough as a player then a manager to remember when a meeting with Saints was just another game. “I don’t think that rivalry was there,” he said. “It has grown from a few years ago and it has the scope to get bigger, but that will depend on both teams continuing at this level.” Mark Tallentire

José Mourinho will want to make a point at Stamford Bridge while Chris Hughton returns to a chaotic St James’s Park
In Manchester United’s last match, against Newcastle, José Mourinho demonstrated some of the audacity with which he made his name. He made a tactical substitution after 19 minutes, swinging a game his team was already losing 2-0 back in his side’s favour. Two of the three goals United scored came from his substitutes. It was an impressive demonstration of a coach’s ability to affect a match, the only shame being that the transformation was made necessary by the appalling performance of his starting XI. United are still some way from convincing anyone of their outstanding quality, with the best team they have beaten so far ninth-placed Watford. If they are to set a new marker in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off against Chelsea, Mourinho will have to demonstrate his tactical astuteness again – only without the woeful opening this time.

Huddersfield, Newcastle and Cardiff are all without a victory after their first eight games and appear unlikely to reach anywhere near 40 points
There is a certain symmetry about the Premier League table at the moment. Three teams at the top are still unbeaten, and already it is being suggested that the title will end up at Manchester City, Chelsea or Liverpool, even though Arsenal should perhaps not be discounted.
At the bottom, three teams are without a win after eight games, the first time in the Premier League era that this has happened. Already it is being suggested that Huddersfield, Newcastle and Cardiff are as good as relegated, even if Fulham and Southampton are not exactly accelerating up the table away from the danger zone.Continue reading...

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has been a busy man in the transfer market this summer as he looks to reinforce his squad for the start of next season after a great run which saw them promoted to the English top flight via the play offs. Adkins is now desperate to bring in new names to the club so that he can secure their position in the top flight for another season at least.
The first signing of the summer sees promising young full back Nathaniel Clyne arrive at St Mary`s from Crystal Palace after the promise of the clubs plans to attempt to quality for Europe this season were very enticing for the player. Southampton though will need to pay a large compensation fee to his current club if the deal goes through as due to the players age his former club feel they are due some type of payment from the saints after he signed a new four year deal last week.
Another player who has just be signed by the club is talented striker Jay Rodriguez after he recently arrived from Burnley for a fee which is believed to be around the six and a half million pounds mark. Adkins has long been an admirer of the player and is extremely happy with the signing which he sees as just perfect to bolster his attacking line for next season.
A shocking bit of news right now for Southampton is the fact that their attempts to bring defender Alexander Buttner to St Mary`s may be in tatters after his current club Vitesse Arnham have halted the move after another club have come into the frame for the players signature. Southampton may now find themselves in a bidding war for the player who they see as a perfect addition to their squad so as of now all dealings over the player have hit a premature halt.
