Hodgson finally sees sense at left back!

Before the England squad was announced there were strong rumours Southampton left back Ryan Bertrand would be included for the first time since 2012.

This was no surprise to the regulars at St. Mary’s, as Bertrand has established himself as one of the most consistent performers in the best defence in the Premier League this season, playing a key role in his side’s chase for European football.

Neutrals were also suggesting the ex-Chelsea man should be there because, on form, this season he has arguably been the best left sided full-back in the league – English or otherwise.

But when the squad was announced last week, Bertrand was a notable absentee.

You might understand that were the competition in his position fierce, but Roy Hodgson called up Leighton Baines (part of an Everton team having a considerably…

Trevor Neal on Saints!

If like me you spent your formative years in the early 1990’s you will be familiar with an incredibly funny duo whose collection of comic characters and sketches are fondly remembered by us all.

You will have swung your pants with The Singing Corner, wondered which hapless celebrity was going to enrage barbers Ken and Eddie Kennedy and enjoyed some Pot Fish sponsored rave nights all from the comfort of your living room on a Saturday morning. Though you may have watched them religiously every week like I did, you may, as I was be ignorant to the fact that Trevor Neal of ‘Trevor & Simon’ fame is a Saint just like us.

Trevor (left) and Simon as perhaps their most famous creation 'The Singing Corner'...
Trevor (left) and Simon as perhaps their most famous creation ‘The Singing Corner’…

I read an article Trevor had written for the Huffington Post in which he spoke of meeting Paul Weller in Debenhams in the city during the 70’s and I wondered then if he might be red an white, this was later confirmed when I saw some tweets of his in which he mentioned Saints.

I was lucky enough to catch some time with Trevor and talk about his life as a Saint.

When did you know you were a Saints fan?

TN ‘I grew up in Southampton and lived there until I was 18 – it was the natural way of things to support The Saints (although before I was old enough to know better in 1972, aged 9 years old, I have to confess that I owned a Leeds United kit (sorry!) – but I think that was only because I liked the sock tabs with numbers on!). My dad was a police dog handler in Southampton and he was occasionally on duty at The Dell (ask your grandparents, kids!) so when I was very young he used to bring home team autographs, which was always very exciting. When I was about 12 years old I went to see the Saints play at the Dell with some school mates and we loved it. We started going regularly after that and used to go and stand in what they called “the chocolate boxes” because as I remember, that’s where families and younger supporters would watch the games. Later we joined the Milton Road end terrace where the main singing and chanting happened. I remember it being really good fun – but this was the 1970s – so being quite young and small it was a bit scary at times too. I remember things getting a bit “lively” at times – particularly when Man United visited.’

Who have been your favourite characters involved with the club over the years? Any you’d think would make good comedy performers?

TN ‘I have to admit I had a bit of a break following football from about 1977, when I discovered Punk Rock and girls, until about the year 2000 when a mate encouraged me to join a Fantasy Football league – so it would be dishonest to pretend I was anything but a part-time supporter really! Anyway I won the Fantasy Football League that season with my team – (which was called Treverton – nothing to do with Everton – just a daft pun) and my star striker was Marians Pahars. I also had Wayne Bridge in defence. The prize money for winning the league was £50 – but I never received it – otherwise I would definitely owe it all to those key Saints players! When I was a kid, players like Ron Davies, Terry Paine and Mick Channon were favourites. In 1976, following the FA cup win, I lined the streets of Southampton to congratulate the team with everyone else, holding a banner which I’d made out of an old bed sheet, proudly aloft which read “Laurie’s Miracle Men”. I think some other fans were a bit miffed that I was suggesting the win was a “miracle” and not through sheer skill and determination – which it obviously was as well – but I still think there was a hint of the miracle about the whole occasion! Bobby Stokes will always be a favourite for that reason. During that season I remember me and my mates used to think the substitute Hugh Fisher was a bit of a comedy performer – but we were just cheeky teenagers and I’m sure it was completely unfair!’

Trevor’s FA Cup Memorabilia!

Having performed all over the country, has football and supporting Saints got you into any trouble on stage?

TN ‘Football has never really got me into any trouble at all – I’ve never taken it that seriously – but whenever I have performed in and around the Portsmouth area – I know how to wind up the audience!’

Do you get to St. Mary’s much?

TN ‘I’m ashamed to say that I have never visited St Mary’s. I live in Broadstairs now in East Kent, which is nearer to Belgium than Southampton, so I don’t visit my old home often these days. My son is an Arsenal supporter (don’t blame me!) so a friend arranged for me to take him to watch Saints play Arsenal at the Emirates a few seasons ago – it was a difficult day for me. I was surrounded by Gunners cheering and celebrating as they beat Saints 6-1. My son thought it was the best day ever.’

Do you think Saints can achieve European Football this season?

TN ‘Why not? They were more closely in the running a few months back maybe but I’d like to think it could still happen. Doesn’t look like anyone’s going to catch Chelsea but there’s still room for a bit of change below them. It would be fantastic if they can do it – like 1976. If they do I’ll pull the sheet off my bed and make another banner – “Ronald’s Miracle Men”’

I think Simon is a Manchester City fan, not many bragging rights for you at the moment, but both clubs have had some ups and downs over the years, did you console each other trough it or take the mick?

TN ‘We’re both similar in that we’ve come back to football late in life. Simon was a childhood City fan in the days of Mike Summerbee. He’s very passionate about City now but neither of us take it seriously enough to worry about any rivalry. We gently tease each other sometimes and occasionally we even back each other’s side but only when they’re playing against Chelsea or United!’

What would Ken and Eddie have made of Kevin Keegan’s haircut?

TN ‘When Roger Daltrey visited Ken and Eddie’s barber shop they were offended when he asked for a perm in reverse because of course they “don’t do perms” backwards or forwards – but I think a Reverse Perm is what Kevin would need.’

‘Kevin Keegan had the ultimate “footballer’s haircut” – his hair was shaped like a football.’

Trev & Simon, along with Sophie Aldred (Ace in Dr Who),  are launching a new comedy sci-fi audio podcast called Strangeness in Space – full details at www.strangenessinspace.com, check it out!

Fonte is spot on, Chelsea point would be wasted with slip against Clarets!

Southampton’s point at Chelsea will mean nothing if they lose to Burnley (Picture: Reuters)

Saints know their objective for the rest of the season. If they consistently pick up points, as they have done so far (with a couple of minor blips) they will qualify for Europe.

Getting a point at Stamford Bridge last weekend could perhaps be seen as a bonus, but as skipper Jose Fonte has pointed out in the week, lose to Burnley on Saturday and it will have been for nothing.

The chance for Saints to qualify for Europe for the first time since 2003 is great, and were both Arsenal and Liverpool to make it to the cup final, then even greater. But they won’t want to take anything for granted and slip-ups at home to a relegation battler would be nothing short of unacceptable.

Saints have already lost to the Clarets once though this…

Southampton v Burnley: PPI Preview

Southampton v Burnley – Saturday 21st March, 15:00

A Man of the Match performance from Fraser Forster helped Southampton hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in an enthralling encounter at Stamford Bridge last weekend. It was an important result for the Saints, very much keeping them in the hunt for a top-6 finish.

When discussing the state of the Premier League, the lack of English players regularly featuring for their clubs is a topic hot on the agenda. One area, though, where England don’t appear to be short of quality is in goal with ‘keepers Joe Hart and Ben Foster, amongst others, making a compelling case for inclusion. One goalkeeper who must be firmly in Roy Hodgson’s thoughts is Southampton stopper Fraser Forster, who was in inspired form against League Leaders Chelsea. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index demonstrates that the former Celtic man made a total of six saves – which was the most in the league in the last round of Premier League fixtures.

Central midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama put in a big defensive shift to help keep Chelsea’s fine array of attacking talent at bay. Between them, the duo covered a total of 23.5km with Schneiderlin covering 12.2km and Wanyama 11.3km respectively.

Many expected the loss of Dejan Lovren to hit Southampton hard at the start of the campaign, as he had been a mainstay of the Saints defence in their impressive 2013/2014 season. In his absence, though, skipper Jose Fonte has stepped up to the mark, becoming a rock in the heart of Ronald Koeman’s back line. The Portuguese defender was in imperious form against the Blues, stifling any attacks as they approached the Southampton goal. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index demonstrates how impressive his performance was, as it shows that he made a total of 23 defensive contributions (based on blocks, tackles won, clearances and interceptions), the second most of any defender in the league in the last round of Premier League fixtures. If you fancy Fonte to head up the other end of the pitch, head to 888sport.com who have him at 15/2 to score at anytime.

Burnley travel to the South Coast with their tails up, after an astounding victory over champions Manchester City in their last Premier League fixture.

George Boyd may have scored the winner on Sunday with an expertly taken finish, but to say he was the only Burnley midfielder making inroads into the City defence would be doing a disservice to his teammates. Both David Jones and Scott Arfield showcased their excellent creative ability against the Champions, completing an impressive 23 passes each in the opposition half – more than any of their teammates.

Finding the back of the net was a just reward for George Boyd for his endeavours, as he covered every blade of grass for his team in an attempt to thwart Manuel Pellegrini’s men. In total, Boyd covered 13.3km for his side – more than any of his teammates. If you fancy Boyd to make it two in two this weekend, head to 888sport.com who have the Scotsman at 7/1 to score at anytime!

Michael Keane is a defender who has always shown a lot of promise and Sean Dyche will have been delighted to purchase him on a permanent deal in January. In particular, this season, he’s shown an excellent eye for a tackle – winning an impressive 74% of the challenges that he has attempted.

The Saints Players who should have been in Hodgson’s England Squad!

When the three Southampton players that went to the World Cup last Summer all left for pastures new on their return from Brazil, you could be forgiven for thinking that that might be the end of the love affair between Roy Hodgson and his favourite 2013-14 haunt at St Mary’s.

Think again.

Rumours spread yesterday that the number of Southampton incumbents in Hodgson’s new squad would be up to three again and with Saints looking to improve on last season’s achievements that is no surprise but who could they be?

1) Fraser Forster

This one is a given, and Saints can’t really take any credit for that as the big keeper was a regular in the squad long before he came to Hampshire. Forster is clearly a talented shot stopper, but for many Saints fans the…

Mike Dean ‘bottled’ the moment that could have sunk Chelsea!

In my last post I called on referee Mike Dean to be strong in the face of Chelsea’s ‘antics’ and he managed to both pass and fail that request in equal measure.

On the one hand, he did award Southampton a penalty and having watched it at the several angle he doesn’t have the luxury of, it is fair to say that it certainly wasn’t clear cut. In awarding said spot kick he cautioned the ‘offender’ Nemanja Matic, something that would be key to some failure on his part later on.

If giving the visitors at Stamford Bridge a penalty (especially given the controversy surrounding the same decision on his last visit) can be seen as ‘strong’ officiating some of his later calls can certainly be seen as weak.

For starters the behaviour of Branislav Ivanovic is…

Saints will need a strong referee to have any chance at Stamford Bridge!

After the ‘antics’ of the Chelsea players against PSG on Wednesday – their constant need to dive, Diego Costa’s aggressiveness and Jose Mourinho’s relentless psychological pressure – as a Southampton fan, all I can hope for as my team heads to Stamford Bridge on Sunday is a strong referee.

Given the performances of the ‘men in the middle’ so far this season, I held out little hope as I opened the Premier League’s website to find out who must hold their nerve in West London. Come on down, Mike Dean.

This has given me fresh confidence. Dean is the elder statesman of the Premier League’s officials, and one of the few that, on their appointment to a Saints game, my eyes don’t roll around in exaggerated disillusionment.

Dean can handle Mourinho, he can handle the gamesmanship of…

Latest transfer speculation proves that Saints have people rattled!

It sounds like a summer blockbuster, the sequel to last August’s thriller on the South Coast. Exodus 2: The Awakening.

If the British press get their way this time will be bigger and better than the first.

The national press revelled in the exits of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers in the last close season, predicting doom and gloom on the team that had offended them so much with their non-English speaking manager and their ideas above their station; and they have started the ball rolling on the misery all over again.

Pick up any of today’s newspapers and you will find Morgan Schneiderlin, Nathaniel Clyne, Toby Alderweireld and Jay Rodriguez all being linked to their ‘dream moves’ to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs. This campaign is still 10 games away…
