- Sat, 24 Aug 2019 16:27:34 +0000: Moussa Djenepo hits cracker as Southampton beat 10-man Brighton - Southampton | The Guardian
Moussa Djenepo’s stunning first Premier League goal set Southampton on course for their first points of the season as they won 2-0 at 10-man Brighton. Djenepo, a substitute and £14m summer signing from Standard Liège, had been on the pitch for 78 seconds when he cut in from the left to bury the ball into the top-right corner from the edge of the box.
Nathan Redmond tapped home a cross from Sofiane Boufal to seal the points in injury-time. Albion played with 10 men for an hour after Florin Andone was sent off for a reckless tackle on Yan Valery, while Lewis Dunk had a first-half header ruled out by VAR.Continue reading...
- Fri, 23 Aug 2019 15:46:35 +0000: Brighton v Southampton: match preview - Southampton | The Guardian
Southampton lost their opening two matches but tend to be tricky opposition for Brighton and will surely fancy their chances after Graham Potter’s attacking revolution stalled against West Ham. Kevin Danso could also debut to refresh Ralph Hassenhüttl’s defence – a unit that kept Liverpool in check for long periods last time out. The workout given to the backline should have them prepared to stifle Potter’s plans for keeping the good times rolling at the Amex. Graham Searles

- Mon, 19 Aug 2019 08:00:36 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Southampton | The Guardian
Ljungberg and Trossard make instant impact, Wilson has Liverpool quality and Rodgers leaves ‘young Frank’ on back foot
The inclusion of Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson against Burnley a week after they became the first pair of teenagers to start a Premier League game for Arsenal since Paolo Vernazza and Matthew Upson in 1998, was more evidence of Unai Emery beginning to trust his young players. That may have something to do with the promotion of the former under-23s coach Freddie Ljungberg to become the Spaniard’s assistant, with Willock particularly impressive alongside Matteo Guendouzi in midfield. The 19-year-old played in a more advanced role in the opening day win over Newcastle and shows how Emery is tapping into the former Sweden midfielder’s knowledge bank since he stepped up in the summer. “[Ljungberg] worked last year with the under-23s and we were very close, speaking about the young players,” he said. “It’s perfect and he helps me a lot. He has an advantage with the young players because he knows them very well.” Ed AaronsContinue reading...

Liverpool beat Southampton 2-1 and secured an 11th successive top-flight victory to equal their best-ever Premier League winning run on Saturday.
Jürgen Klopp hailed his team as 'mentality giants' after his team won the game on the back of their Super Cup win against Chelsea on Wednesday.
But it was a nervy finish at the St Mary's stadium - the European champions were leading 2-0 until goalkeeper Adrían cleared the ball against Danny Ings to gift Southampton a late goalContinue 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.
