Crikey, this has the potential to be rather unpleasant, because we're not in a good state at the moment. Such awful timing for us to come across Saints! We're in full on experimental mode at the moment, trying to see what may work best given the available resources at our disposal. With no obvious starting 11 it'd be rather hard for me to predict our lineup.
Will be interesting to walk to an away game, lol. At least I know plenty of alternatives to f**king Yates as the usual away bar that the Police will try and shepherd everyone into. I can try anyway.
Boruc's agent tells us he's been looking forward to this meeting ever since he first rocked up at Dean Court last season, and that he'd be gutted to be dropped now. But frankly, he's walking a very thin line currently and patience is at the limit. Federici played last night and did ok, it's a real tossup.
In attack it's basically, get the ball to Matt Ritchie and Glenn Murray as much as possible, they're the quality that will create and score the goals.
We just have to keep them out at the other end. Easy, right?
My tip, Harry Arter to make his first PL start of the season. He'll smash the Saints central midfield into the stands within 5 minutes, certainly get booked and possibly get sent off.
I think he's more likely to be kicked into the stands if Wanyama and Romeu start.
No surprise that Boruc is well up for this one. Him and Koeman didn't see eye to eye.
Hopefully Koeman puts Mane in the middle for this one. Have him running at their CBs.
All in all, I'm expecting a close game.
