Because it’s have been fun to play again this save I’m going to now post and tell you how magnificent have the Saints play. Again there is link on the photos.
Games and Player Stats
Jeffrey Bruma continue his good performances again this season. He seems to be the best player at the moment in our team. Also Vladimir Weiss and Jack Cork have impressed me. In other end of the table Jay Rodriguez and our young guns Higgs, Gauld and Elliot haven’t been so good. But I think it’s because of their age. But Rodriguez the man who scored 12 league goals have failed. But like you see in our games. We didn’t lose any of our 18 league games and only lose is our Super Cup lose against Bayer that is something to cheer for.
In league Andy Carroll with 5 goals is our best scorer. This isn’t so good coz best league scorer Leandro Damião have scored impressive 15 goals in 20 games. That is the one reason why we are not leading the table. Actually when you look those goal and assists stats there isn’t a single Southampton player. Even Wolves and Sunderland players have scored more than our best player. But the league table looks good in our eyes. We are only 6 points behind Tottenham with 2 games in hand and 2 points behind City and United with 1 game in hand. At the bottom Reading, Blackburn and Derby seemed top contenders to relegate.
We handed quite easy group this year and our young players played good first 6 games. Jonjo Shelvey and Vladimir Weiss have been our best two player so far in this tournament both scoring 2 goals and giving 2 assists. Also Andy Carroll have played good scoring 3 goals in 5 games. I’m also happy how Sam Johnstone have played as goalkeeper. 5 games and over 7.00 average rating is good for young goalie. In our youth ranks I would rise up Jason Marshall-Jones or JMJ as I liked to call him. This young striker have scored one goal and have been very good in those 4 games that he have been playing. In first KO-Round we face Trabzonspor from Turkey. I think that we could win and qualify to 2nd KO Round.
Capital One Cup
Only 3 games played in this tournament. This year we managed to qualify at least semi finals as we beat Cardiff, Blackburn and Nottingham Forest. So far JMJ is our best player when he scored once and assists 3 goals in 2 games. Also another youngster, our own youth star Kerry Higgs have been really good in this tournament. I hope that we could go all the way to the final. It’s possible coz we face Wolves in Semi Finals in January. In final (if we are there) we face either Everton or Reading.
So we played perfectly in our first half of the season. I can’t wait how high position we can achieve this season. Top6 is still our target and maybe this year we could win FA Cup of Capital One Cup.
Thanks for reading (if there is any)!
