- Thu, 19 Sep 2019 11:30:28 +0000: Southampton’s Jan Bednarek: ‘We have to be a really nasty opponent’ - Southampton | The Guardian
The rejuvenated defender on fearing no one under Hasenhüttl, why he gave up goalkeeping and the value of psychology
There are few better symbols of Southampton’s transformation under Ralph Hasenhüttl than Jan Bednarek. It is a little more than two years since the Poland defender swapped Poznan for the Premier League but after being reduced to a bit-part role and ostracised by previous managers, these days Bednarek feels at home, reinvigorated and somewhat part of the defensive furniture, having played every minute in the top flight so far this season.
“We are not scared of anyone with this manager,” he says. “The vibe here is very good. Because we press high, it doesn’t matter if it’s Chelsea, Liverpool or Wolverhampton, we try to do the same things with the same attitude and the same energy. I think the bravery of this coach is much bigger.”Continue reading...
- Mon, 16 Sep 2019 07:29:51 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Southampton | The Guardian
Buendía the architect of City’s bad day, Arsenal were woeful in defence and Maguire deserved better from Leicester fans
The way in which Norwich turned a negative into a positive was quite something. With nigh-on a full team of players out injured, the odds of stopping Manchester City looked insurmountable. Instead Daniel Farke’s men gave their best performance of the season by far, not only cutting the champions open but looking solid at the back for the first time. There was kudos for the debutants in defence, Sam Byram and Ibrahim Amadou, but also for more seasoned Norwich players. Emi Buendía and Marco Stiepermann were central to a buccaneering style in the Championship yet had struggled to bring that form to the top flight. With the gauntlet down, however, they delivered. Buendía contributed two assists and regularly sprung the City press. Stiepermann sparked several counter attacks and crucially reestablished his understanding with Teemu Pukki.

- Sat, 14 Sep 2019 17:19:00 +0000: Moussa Djenepo’s solo strike seals points for Saints at Sheffield United - Southampton | The Guardian
Being billed as the new Sadio Mané gives the 21-year-old Moussa Djenepo a lot to live up to, though in his brief appearances since his £15m move the Malian winger has proved he can score spectacular goals.
This was his first start in Southampton colours and he decorated it with a memorable solo strike deserving of all three points. The two sides had been cancelling each other out until, midway through the second half, a Blades mistake turned the ball over and with an elusive run Djenepo made the most of it, first holding off Ollie Norwood’s attempts to pull him back, then deftly turning Jack O’Connell to place a low shot beyond Dean Henderson.Continue reading...
- Fri, 13 Sep 2019 11:00:37 +0000: Sheffield United v Southampton: match preview - Southampton | The Guardian
Sheffield United have made the best start of the three promoted sides and did well to draw 2-2 at Chelsea. Chris Wilder will surely fancy his players’ chances at home to a talented but inconsistent Southampton. It is early days, and luck as well as scientifically calibrated training schedules come into these things, but they are a fit squad. Should that continue, their survival chances will be enhanced appreciably. Louise Taylor

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.
