My mate used to shout out that he played like a "male model", whenever he lost a tackle.
Ahh, the good old days of political incorrectness!
|Charlie Nicholas' prediction - J W-P should not be in England Squad|
at 10:40 22 Mar 2017
On Sky sports on-line Charlie Nicholas basically said that James Ward-Prowse should not be in the England squad- but that a case could be made for Jack Wilshere.
All I can say is can I have a quarter of what he has been smoking!
Look at the records
Wilshere is 3 years older than J W-P, but has only played 13 league games more. He has 7 league goals, and J W-P 6, 3 this season.
Wilshere cannot get in a Bournemouth team battling relegation. J W-P has just played in the league cup final, and in a Saints team 10th in the league.
5 ft 7 1⁄2 in. 25 years old. Total of 141 league games, 7 goals. England 34 games 2 goals. England U21 games 0 goals.
Age 22, 5 ft 8 in. 128 games 6 goals. U21 27 games 6 goals
Charlie Nicholas' prediction
I'm a little bit confused by Gareth Southgate's squad selection, but I guess it's because of the lack of choices he's got.
You could make a case for Andy Carroll or Jack Wilshere to be in there, but James Ward-Prowse, really? I guess he wants to have a look at some players, but surely you have to make real a merit out of call ups rather than just handing them out.

I never noticed the option to click on an arrow on the right. All I saw was the left option.
Evidently, we are 4 rows back in Block B 125, south stand level 1.
I thought B was the row, so little bit better.
Too bloody late now to change!
at 09:56 2 Feb 2017
Got for me and 2 mates. 45 min wait. Could not pick actual seats, just level 1 or level 5 and which stand . Could not pick by price. Saying all £100 and £90 sold out. Got 3 x 72 with £1 each booking fee.
South stand, row B block 125. Bit near the front, but it was either that or level 5, which would have been right up to back.
at 09:21 2 Feb 2017
Been waiting for 20 mins so far. Started off 45 min wait, now done to 15 mins. Anybody actually got tickets yet? If so, can you pick seats or just take what you get?

|Potential trouble on Thursday |

Evidently the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) are planning a protest march on Thursday.
Fairplay for Palestine- Say No to Israeli Teams in UEFA
I have contacted the club as I see it as being a potential flashpoint and provocation of the away fans. The PSC want protesters to bring banners and flags. Which of course could be used as weapons.
The last thing I want to see outside St Mary's is a political riot.

I sit in the Chapel, and with my bad back, SIT is what I want to do.
With younger singers comes standing.
I do not want to get into the kind of problems that West Ham have just seen. Fans fighting each other, as some want to stand all game, and others do not.
I do sing, sitting down, but maybe not as much as I should do.
I would not mind the Leicester clappers idea, in principle. I may get well pissed off very quickly though!
|2017 Africa Cup of Nations Boufal to miss up to four league games|

Guess what - Sofiane Boufal plays for Morocco, so, will miss;
Burnley away 14 Jan;
Leicester Home 22 or 23 Jan;
Swansea away 31 Jan;
West Ham Home 4 Feb.

Southampton agree club-record £21m fee for Lille's Sofiane Boufal - Sky sources
By Paul Vinnell
Last Updated: 25/08/16 1:59pm
Southampton have agreed a club-record £21m fee for Lille striker Sofiane Boufal, according to Sky sources.
If the transfer goes through, it will break Southampton's previous record of £15m, which they paid Roma for Dani Osvaldo in October 2013.
The Paris-born 22-year-old can play as a winger or as a striker. He scored 11 times for Lille last season but suffered a knee injury in May which is likely to keep him out of action until September.
Boufal made his international debut earlier this year, featuring for Morocco in a 1-0 African Cup of Nations qualifying win over Cape Verde Islands in March.
Saints sold Sadio Mane to Liverpool in the summer, while striker Graziano Pelle moved to China, but Puel has since brought in winger Nathan Redmond and now looks set to add Boufal to his striking options.
Meanwhile, West Brom have held positive talks with Southampton over aloan deal for Jay Rodriguez, with Hull also interested in the 27-year-old.
Former Saints boss Ronald Koeman is keen on bringing Cuco Martina to Everton from the south coast.

He is out until end of September with a knee injury it seems. Also, how much does "agree a fee" means "signed"? I may have been a bit eager putting "signed", as he may not pass a medical, or agree personal terms with Saints.
at 09:31 25 Aug 2016
I saw him play as a nipper. My mates son in same team scored more goals than Lucas, but kept on getting injured. I think Lucas has had a couple of £1m moves, so better than working in Tesco's!
|Rojo for Fonte ?|
at 09:16 17 Aug 2016
Of course, it could also be the usual Man U mind games. If Fonte does not play Friday, as his head is not right, then the strategy has worked. They do not even have to buy him, just ensure he is unsettled.

I thought McQueen looked ok as left wing back. Not his usual position, which is MF/winger Seemed to be able to beat a man. Southend want him back on loan.
|Football shirts and fatties|

As a 3xl, I am one of the fatties!
The new shirt fits reasonably well, not like the one from a few years ago. I ripped the neck getting it on, and it was as tight as a nuns chuff!
at 15:14 19 Jul 2016
I think we have a keeper in the England U16s, but that is it. I also feel that this is due to the time we were in the lower leagues.
However, we have also recruited from wider than just England. We have a Nigerian striker, and a French right back in the U21s.
Isgrove is Welsh, but does not look like making it at Premiership level.
