Southampton V Aston Villa: Saturday 5th December at 3PM

Post by Sandie on Tue Dec 01, 2015 1:28 am

So after yet another Saturday of disappointment we brace ourselves for the next trip on the Villa rollercoaster (currently plumbing the depths). Can we end our 13 game (unlucky for some, especially us) winless run or does more woe beckon?

In this game we will head to the South and face Southampton who are becoming the poster childs of the league. 'Oh look at them! They are so well run' people keep saying and they are right. They are pretty much the antithesis of Randy Lerner's Aston Villa. They're 10th in the league but can easily reel in the teams close above them and challenge for Europe. So not exactly easy opposition and not something that people would use that age old misnomer (for AVFC) 'winnable game' for. In case you've forgotten (and to increase the dread you will be feeling in the pit of your stomach) St Mary's was the venue for the match that arguably started us digging the hole we've dug for ourselves when we lost there 6-1 last season.

On the other hand, surely not even we can keep on not winning? We have to win another game some time, don't we. Something has to change for our team and if it does this game may not be a foregone conclusion. We may once again demonstrate the organization we had against Man City. The manager will no doubt be trying to change things as well. Southampton also have a league cup game to contend with on Wednesday, perhaps a long slog including extra-time, penalties and injuries could help us and tire them out.

Having got the match preview over with, I have to be honest and say I'm expecting them to tear us a new arsehole. Sad

4-0.

I loved the passionate way you've set up the match Sandie .... and then that burst of realism in your own prediction. It made me laugh, but it shouldn't have really should it?

We're going to lose again, so anything less than a new arsehole will be a let off.

It will be interesting to see if Garde realises that you have to keep a deep solid back line against Southampton. They've taken advantage of our defensive indiscipline whenever we've played them recently.

They've taken one hell of a beating tonight from Klippety Klopp's Liverpool.

Will they be demoralised or will they (more likely) be giving us a bit of a backlash?

I would think we'll see the real Southampton on Saturday. I would rather they'd won 6-1 tonight and got a little complacent.

Just heard Clark is suspended and Richards might be out so this will do no good to an already porous defence. Okore is back to full fitness but Crespo and Ilori aren't so looks like Okore and Lescott should Richards not make it.

Gabby is back though...

So we'll be playing with ten men from the start, then?

There will be a backlash from the bumming they had last night. 6-0.

He was meant to be fit last week but didn't appear so we can live in hope that he continues not to play. That said, with each passing week and comment about him being back fit the worry is there.

Merse says we will lose 2-1. That's a ringing endorsement from him, because he thinks we're totally useless.

I usually wait for Lawro's prediction. You can bet, whatever he says, he'll have it wrong.

Maybe a new manager and the direness of our situation will flick a switch and bring back the Gabby of 2009?

Maybe NASA will find out that the moon really is made of cheese too.

Tomorrow will tell us how much Garde has learnt about our defensive problems.
