The classic six pointer today.

This is the day the players need to decide what it is they want, and who it is they want to work with.Southampton are no great shakes but they show signs of wanting it a bit more than our lot do, so today our lads have a chance to change that.

Application, discipline and doing the basics right will win the day providing we can get one of our classier players to sprinkle a moment of magic.

Anderson, Haller, Yarmolenko, Fornals......of those available, they have absorbed this season budget.

Time for at least one of them to deliver.

If they do, we'll take the points, if they don't, we'll see a change in the dug out.

25,000 people in a stadium built for 80,000 can never be a risk worth taking.Compensation payments to a manager or not.

Two teams with similar ability, comes down to tactics, belief and desire.

Can't be easy trying to motivate multi millionaires who'd rather be playing fifa, out clubbing or shopping for Ferraris. Especially as they still draw the same massive salaries win, lose or draw.

I think Pelle's biggest mistake is presuming that his players are all highly driven, self motivated professionals with a desire to win for the fans.

(Noble aside)

Perhaps the powers that be could draw up some kind of performance related pay structure that rewards success...if the player doesn't want to sign then they get to jog on and we sign a hard working one instead that does...just a thought.

As TPP said, time for a few players to step up namely some of the big money buys.

Figured I’d check to see if Ex had put the team out. He says there was an injury in training yesterday. One enforced change.

If it's Rice we've lost before we start. Sanchez and Noble in central midfield? Ugh.

Was told this morning that we've been invited out to a pre-Christmas Barbeque tonight :) - I'd forgotten all about it , bollox .

Has the looks of a score draw about it but we can't settle for a measly point so........

Hope you are right TOMS PPower giving enhanced odds from 11s to 14s. Apparently its Anderson crocked.
