Southampton

My stats site is down for whatever reason so these previews will be even worse than usual, but stay with me. Southampton played in their final round of Europa League Qualifying before the Premier League began and they finished the tie against Vitesse with a 5-0 win over the two legs before jetting off to Newcastle for their opening fixture. Goals from Graziano Pelle and Shane Long earned a point in a 2-2 draw at St James' Park in a game that The Saints both led and trailed. Southampton only conceded 13 goals in 19 league matches at St Mary's Stadium in the premier league last season which is a feat only beaten by Chelsea who conceded just 9 goals. Of those 19 league matches, Southampton managed to keep 11 clean sheets which was the joint most alongside Chelsea.

It's pretty much another summer of overhaul for Southampton after the sales of Nathaniel Clyne and Morgan Schneiderlin. Toby Alderweireld was also a big part of the Southampton defence last season but decided to move to Tottenham Hotspur following his loan expiration. Matters were made worse when Fraser Forster picked up a long term injury which will likely keep him out for the vast majority of the season which means that Southampton's excellent defence from last season and been somewhat torn apart. Both right backs bought in the summer featured at Newcastle as Cedric Soares came off for Cuco Martino after a difficult first half display. Steven Caulker was brought in on loan following his back to back relegation campaigns but had to watch from the bench as Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshia were preferred in defence. Jordy Clasie is meant to be boss.

Possible Line-Ups

Everton

For a third successive season, Everton kicked off with a 2-2 draw and despite the fact this was the only one of those three matches where Everton didn't throw away a lead, it seemed the most disappointing of all. Everton had 67% of the ball against Watford and managed 10 shots, Watford exceeded that with 11 shots and just 33% of possession. Creativity from the Everton midfield was abject with Cleverley creating the most opportunities (3) followed by Barry (1), Barkley (1), Mirallas (1) and McCarthy (0) whilst Lukaku won just 5/14 aerial duels and 0/6 in the opposition penalty area. Everton have a miserable record at St Mary's Stadium under Roberto Martinez with an aggregate score of 5-0 and three own goals. The last Everton player to score away at Southampton was Marcus Bent in a memorable 2-2 draw back in 2005.

(http://i.imgur.com/YViwERq.jpg)

Seeing as the opening match of this season was effectively the 39th match of last season then it's worth viewing a comparison of Martinez's first couple of seasons at Everton. The Toffees points total was 25 points lower than the first season which is the joint 5th biggest drop by a team in Premier League history (the record is 30, held by Leeds and Ipswich). As the graphic shows, Everton were down in almost every important area in last season's campaign and perhaps the biggest thing to take from those stats being the tackles won and tackles lost per game differential which was perhaps a reflection of Everton's lack of intensity last season and sluggishness during matches. Everton went behind in 20 of their 38 premier league matches last season came back to take just 7 points from a possible 60 and just one win (West Ham A). Everton fell behind in 14 of their matches in the 2013/14 season and picked up 10 points from a possible 42.

If you think the potential line up looks unlikely then you're right. I didn't have a clue.

I'm just assuming that Mirallas isn't going to start because of that injury and Deulofeu won't be back yet which leaves us with zero wingers and I think Martinez will want Kone to start after his substitute performance.

Post by: TSGun on August 10, 2015, 01:23:30 PM
I'd almost be tempted to play 5 at the back with Oviedo and Coleman as wingbacks for any possible width in this game. Most likely wont happen though.

I like the shout to start Kone in some capacity. When these forward types start scoring they can come in quick succession.

The thing is, we'll fucking go and win this game and all of a sudden Martinez wont seem like such a dodgy manager.

In a perverse way im kinda hoping we lose this so Martinez exit is accelerated. Its such a sad thing to say but I firmly believe that Martinez doesn't have it in him to adapt his mantra to play in a way that makes us competitive week in week out near the top of the premier league with the players we have. Or can afford to buy.

Post by: hill135 on August 10, 2015, 06:59:57 PM

I agree.

Rom, Barkley, Kev and Deulofeu are all adept at carrying the ball large distances, attacking spaces at pace; but none of them can really weight a through ball (at least not consistently).

Our possession heavy approach is therefore quite confusing.
Title: Re: Southampton v Everton
Post by: sootyjrw on August 10, 2015, 07:04:28 PM
I know it won't happen but I'd go with

                                            Howard
                         Stones       Jagielka        Barry
Coleman                             McCarthy                 Oviedo
                        Barkley                        Cleverley
                               Kone            Lukaku

We can then switch to 4-4-2 if it doesn't work
Title: Re: Southampton v Everton
Post by: TheTone on August 10, 2015, 07:05:27 PM
one things for certain, we'll definitely concede goals again, Pelle to dominate Jagielka , Coleman unable to stop crosses coming in and Howard to dive over another ball or 2

As in, I don't understand why we try to play possession when our team is full of dangerous counter-attackers who aren't best-suited to the possession style
Title: Re: Southampton v Everton
Post by: GLewis on August 10, 2015, 07:36:42 PM
I know we all liked the 80's but 4-4-2 isn't the answer.

The formations are largely irrelevant.

Or they are for us at the moment.

It's more if Kone plays then it's another player whose natural game is to get into the box to support Lukaku.

Similarly we played a bit better when Oviedo came on as he's a natural wide player.

He wasn't great individually (and I'm not convinced longer term in midfield) but just because he stays out wide naturally meant that we could get more width higher up the pitch which stretched them a bit. This is why Lennon made a big difference last season.

So yes, a strict 4-4-2 isn't likely to work but maybe having players on the pitch who gravitate towards the roles that are associated with the formation may help us.
Title: Re: Southampton v Everton
Post by: Jimmywhack on August 10, 2015, 07:46:23 PM
Id like us to play a formation one week where if I have missed the first 5 mins say, I can look up and say what we are playing straightaway. I havent been able to do that for sometime~

On saturday, when Watford were attacking Barry split Jagielka and Stones. So we had 5 in a line agaisnt Troy Deeney

Then we had Mccarthy and Barkley in a straight line with Three players in between them

442 often switches to 451 in defence, or Barry drops in to make it 541.

Still think that Championship Manager 99 might have been onto something, when an attacking 145 and long ball seemed the best option.

............you may be right but the crowd , of which most of us are a part , reacts to what happens on the field. We  didn't need new signings to beat Watford ,we needed the team to play to it's strengths for the full 90 minutes - not to piss about for the entire first half.

I don't know why we don't use a defensive diamond in these sort of situations.

Howard
Coleman Stones Jagielka Oviedo
Barry
McCarthy Cleverley
Barkley
Lukaku Kone

Maybe Barkley doesn't have the vision to be playing that sort of formation but at least we could bring our full backs into play and have two strikers on the pitch.

A win could work wonders for our confidence

Southampton only drew with Newcastle at the weekend who are a bit shit, and we ourselves beat them last time we played, which was only a few months ago

Hopefully we've learned some lessons from the other day, Arouna Kone is full of confidence, Lukaku is a bit sharper as he will have another week of training to get him over his injury and improve his fitness, and Bryan Oviedo starts at left back giving us more natural width

its because he's obsessed with his philosophy of trying to be barca and unlike the back end of last season where he was forced into trying different things he will now while he has time go back to this stupid philosophy
i just don't think it can work unless you have players like barca have upfront, I'm certain it worked for him in his first season purely due to the defensive attitude the team had from moyes that blend worked perfectly
but that has slowly faded and like his wigan team we are shocking at the back

My thoughts exactly.

For Bob to get his opportunity at the very top where he can implement his ethos with the very best players he has to be successful and demonstrate adaptability from a tactical perspective at the lower levels with inferior players.

What frustrates me most as you alude to is the fact he's shown adaptability in playing a different formation and style of football to get results to stave off relegation.

Maybe because if he changes things and it works everyone will think he should have done it sooner so he gets no credit. Whereas if he perseveres and it works he looks the genius who has proved all the doubters wrong.

its because he's obsessed with his philosophy of trying to be barca and unlike the back end of last season where he was forced into trying different things he will now while he has time go back to this stupid philosophy
i just don't think it can work unless you have players like barca have upfront, I'm certain it worked for him in his first season purely due to the defensive attitude the team had from moyes that blend worked perfectly
but that has slowly faded and like his wigan team we are shocking at the back


lets pray he can prove us / me wrong

But we don't set ourselves up like Barca though. They press from the front, every game, in packs, with a high tempo, to win the ball back asap. We don't do that. They pass and move quickly through midfield, we don't. They play in the main with just Busquets very deep but we play with two. Literally the only thing we do that they do it split the centre backs and drop a midfielder in to pick up the ball but that's it.
It's a myth that we wants us to play like Barca as there's no evidence we set ourselves up the same.

Making a substitution if we need to get back into the game will be an improvement on last season!

I was trying to decide which was most frustrating;

1 - Not making a sub at Soton when you look hopeless and keep shipping goals
2 - Lining up at Hull with a centre midfield of Naismith and Baines with Barry at centre back
3 - Away at Stoke every sub he made was a remotely wide player off for someone who was more central despite the main problem in that game was having no width

But after consideration I thought as crazy as not making a sub at all is when you are losing 3-0, nothing could get past the shock of seeing Baines and Naismith as our centre midfield with Barry and Alcaraz behind them!

A win could work wonders for our confidence

Southampton only drew with Newcastle at the weekend who are a bit shit, and we ourselves beat them last time we played, which was only a few months ago


I expected Southampton to get beat last week because of the Europa hoodoo playing Thurs and Sunday.
Also thought Newcastle would be fired up a bit, a new manager, new season, first game at home. So I think a 2-2 draw was a very good result for them.

This game could be over at half time, the positive of that being you can fuck off and do the garden and not have to listen to ninty mins of Michael Owen. There is always a positive.

As I've said before; their back 5 are really quite poor. Couple that with the sale of Schneiderlin, who gave the back 4 a lot of protection last year, then you've got to think we can cause them problems. But, I'm almost resigned to the fact that we won't. I'm 'pro-Martinez' but my biggest criticism under his reign is our consistant failure to no put pressure on the opposition's defence. Rom should be able to terrorise Yoshida and Fonte - we need to give him the ball in the right spaces, to do so.

That's a damning list - seen like that it's so stark. And to be honest I could easily add points 4 to 7. Roberto's star really did plummet didn't it! Inexplicable to what he was trying to achieve to be honest.

He got some real stick that night coming down the touch line to the tunnel by the away section. Looked like he had never had a reaction like that before didnt know whether to look at the crowd, stay hidden, clap.

It was a very dark moment, thankfully we had Newcastle at home the game after to give us 3 points to get us on the track to safety as it felt like we were in free fall.

Interesting to see how he lines up Kone and Lukaku.  Straight 2 up top, or maybe Lukaku a little wider?

It's a good starting XI with options on the bench, which in theory should give us every chance today.  However if we play the way we normally play then it'll make little difference.  Fingers crossed last week really was a bit of a wakeup call.

Title: Re: Southampton v Everton

Don't mind that team actually. It will require Lukaku and Kone to put in the movement, and McCarthy and Barkley to lift their heads and contribute going forward. No worries that Cleverley will do this though.

There's the old 'if they're fit enough to make the bench, they should be fit enough to play' thing. They might have to come on after 2 mins for an injury.

Anyway, personally, I'm not blaming RM particularly. It's more that it's scary our lack of wide options as a squad. Literally Coleman is the only semblance of width. Maybe Kone/Lukaku can pull wide at times, and help us out in that regard hopefully.

Robbie savage...."why are they so forward thinking on their own corner?"  lolol

Lukaku on his day is unplayable, he just needs to have more days more often.

He's got support and space to run into and drift into space today. When we play at home and teams play deep, it's more about intricate passes into feet and perfect runs, which isn't his game.

Still not getting carried away though. What a confidence booster this will be for the players if we see this out.

Away to Southampton.
Only won there twice in 22 years.
Drew 3 and lost 3 on last 6 visits.
We got off to a poor start last week they done well in Europa and away to Newcastle.
Martinez under pressure, Koeman flying high.

When you look at it like that this has an Everton win written all over it!

Why did I not take this gut feeling to the bookies

Good game!

Hope this play was the result of Martinez adjusting his tactics! If that is the case I'm very happy!

Everyone had a good game. Kone finding his feet, Lukaku picking up positions and runs, Ross doing the number 10 role very good, Galloway solid but better going forward then defending, Stones and Jags having a great partnership!

Best half of football since the first half of the home Arsenal game from the very beginning of last season.

We defo need to play away every week.

With a bit of luck the confidence gained from this, combined with it being City meaning a more open game, and a slightly more tolerant crowd to start, we could get back to playing well at home. Indeed, the run of 'tough' games could help us in that respect, the first home game where we might expect 10 behind the ball isn't until 1st November.
Title: Re: Southampton v Everton

Barkley, Kone and Lukaku tearing shit up. Also the kit has had a great game so far, looks lovely

Gotta love Goldenhead, he's making a huge difference

Get the ball into Lukaku in the box and he will do the rest

Also I'm vowing to always cheer on Ross Barkley and never grumble or moan at him. When the lads got confidence he's a world beater

If you all back me here were gonna be sound Yano

So don't disobey me

Yeah I was thinking Jags. Some commanding play from him today. Lukaku faded a bit towards the end, but Barkley for me, consistently making a difference and turning us forward, even some great defensive play. I guess you could argue the dodgy moments could have got him in trouble, but I'm just made up to see him playing with such confidence, and the goal was a thing of beauty. His positioning too was great today, some great runs off the ball.

What a well needed performance that was and nice to do it away to Southampton who BT waxed lyrical about pre kick off before then talking about us, well us selling John Stones more specifically. We need to keep that kind of performance up though and hopefully anyone wanting a defeat today to speed up the mangers exit will be enjoying the win more than they'd have enjoyed a gloat.

I'm really happy with our defensive shape today; Southampton had no space in the middle of the field, unlike Watford last week. If we can restrict opponents to crosses, corners, and set pieces (and continue to deal with these situations), we should make a major improvement on last season's defensive record.

I think this is the thing with Martinez. Sure, he has his core beliefs, but he is still fairly young, and it strikes me that he is very much learning as he goes. Sure, there will be times when it's not working, but maybe because of his positivity, he won't give up and get permanently stuck in the rut, and will adapt as the league and players change. I'm sure some will disagree, but I can really see him growing to be the manager we need. And having some great football to watch at times while we wait.  8)

Playing on the counter attack suits us so much better

We may not have that number 10 who can play an intricate throughball

But we do have in Barkley, Lukaku, Kone, Mirallas and Deulofeu players who can be fast strong and dangerous

Counter attack suits these players much more than Tiki Taka

Of course it is much more likely that we can play counter attack away from home but it was such a positive sign to see Roberto use these tactics

He is in a great moment right now, after a phenomenal performance today. We showed fantastic character, everyone in the group

It was a very encouraging display today, which I predicted completely wrongly, and which I think goes to show the stupidity behind drawing concrete conclusions after one game.

We changed it up and were very solid defensively and threatening on the counter. We had a good balance. This sort of set up suits us better I think. Players like Barkley and Lukaku (and others that didn't play) look completely different when they're carrying the ball in to big open spaces. I hope we play like this more but it's harder at home.

Our young spine - Ross, Stones and Rom - all put it outstanding performances; we kept our first away clean sheet in months; and scored three and could have had more against one of last season's best defences.

The only negative is that it makes the Watford game look like even more of a missed opportunity.

When Everton has their shit together and play stays open, it can be sexy as fuck (like today). I will hold onto this DVR for awhile, methinks.

Even without the goal, the last 30 minutes of the match were absolute perfection. Crushed the Saints’ souls.

Lukaku obviously MotM (with nods to Kone and Ross), but HUGE credit to 19-year old Brendan Galloway. To go out on the road against a progressive, attacking side like Soton and boss all over the pitch is damned impressive.

We have to be careful not to swing too much the other way though after only 1 good performance.  The highlight for me is the way we played this game, we played quite an un-Martinez way, and that shows more flexibility and adaption than we showed all of last season.

I think it highlights the need for options in the squad. This setup doesn't work at home against teams who park the bus.

If we can play this way away but be able to call on a number 10 to help us find ways through tight spaces at home hopefully we can have the best of both worlds depending on need. We haven't solved that home conundrum yet, but hopefully we can find a solution in the transfer market in the coming weeks.

From a fan's perspective it's nice to be able to watch different styles of football too. I could take a bit of (productive) tiki taka at home mixed with a more fast paced counter attacking solution away from home. Keeps it interesting.

Delighted to be proven wrong about the lack of width. Intelligent movement by both the forwards more than made up for that.

Still need to find more solutions in home games, but that was very encouraging as a blueprint for our away games.

Particularly made up with Barkley. You could see the blossoming signs in pre-season, and he's really taken that forward into the competitive games. His potential is scary.

Highly impressive display. Is that our best away performance since the Arsenal match when we played them off the park in December 2013?

The triumvirate of Barkley, Lukaku and Kone struck fear into that Saints back line, with the interchangeable nature of the three not allowing any of them to be picked up and marked by any one defender. That could be a good ploy to use throughout the course of the season, especially away from home.

It was lovely to see the counter attacking football of Martinez's first season return, and the formation and style of play certainly made me eat humble pie. I said to my dad about 15 minutes into the match "We're too narrow. Coleman and Galloway will get overrun 2 vs 1 here", so it shows what I know!

Props to Howard for some great saves as well, particularly from Mane just 45 seconds before our goal. It would be remiss not to praise the entire team for today's match, but Howard especially deserves praise for being commanding and vocal, given last season's criticism.

Of course, it's still early to say whether there's major signs of change from Martinez as it's one game, but the gloom has slowly started to lift based on today, that's for sure.

Its nothing to do with playing home or away, its how the team approach the game.  There's nowhere better than Goodison for support (ask SAF, Mourinho, City managers etc). Their support away is also second to none.

The home fans have a right to expect a certain amount of effort, pace and desire. Its not bad play that makes them unhappy, its a bad approach and attitude.
The fans that pay to watch also have the right to express their opinion a lot more than those watching on TV or online.

If the players come out with the right one against City next week the fans will respond.

Y, good point ENC re: Roms attitude. Superb today, was a gentleman to a Soton fan who he drilled in the face prematch as well.

He's a very like able footballer, no doubt. Kone seems to really have formed a bromance there... Maybe a factor in Kone's excellent start to the season?

Nice person yeh although I'd prefer it if he wasn't so nice at times. If he had a bit of Diego Costa in him, with his frame, he'd be unplayable. However today was a good day, let's applaud him, we're in a Champions League place and leave any criticism until after next weeks performance.

Martinez in his long after match statement said everything I wanted to hear. Too often there is a doubt that the people in charge really know what the fans feel. As a "Martinez Out" man I retract that, not on the basis of a good win which it was, but on convincing me that he knows what we are about at Everton. He may not achieve it but he understands it. Good luck to him.

I think he's always bought into Everton and knows what we're about. Right from the start he's tried to immerse himself in the club, had legends at the training ground, their photos on walls and learned all about our history. It was his stubbornness as a manager that was a concern rather than "getting" Everton, his appearance on Monday Night Football really concerned me after trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.

After watching him on Monday the alarm bells really were starting to ring that's why today's performance and his post match comments were even more refreshing, he's shown that he will change and that he and the players were aware that the tempo was too slow and it needed changed, he also said that after last week's game. Now he needs to stick to that and not do what he's done in the past by changing when he has to then for some strange reason go back to the boring, slow possession game.

We really have to give a big credit to Kone. What a cross/pass to Lukaku. That could've turned out to being a half chance but instead he placed the ball on Lukakus head over 3 defenders and away from the keepers reach. That paved the way for a more relaxed, patient way of playing.

But overall great performance! Good speed coming out a few times, great playing by Lukaku and Barkley trying to help each other and not being selfish.

Jags was excellent. Always talking, keeping everyone organised. We never really lost our shape at any point and it really went a long to way to limiting their chances.

It helped that whenever they broke we were able to slow them down enough to regain our shape, credit to the midfielders for that.

Nice to score 3 but it's good to see us keep a clean sheet and should give everyone some confidence that we can keep that going in the future.

There were numerous occasions when the midfield were nicking in and breaking up the play when Southampton tried to play forward, forcing them to put less accurate balls through which the defence had covered off. Made it cluttered in front of our centre backs and prevented Southampton being able to create any killer balls.

The speed of counter attack also kept their fullbacks from doubling up on ours as Kone, Lukaku and Barkley kept running into the space they left.

One common theme between the second half last game and the whole of this game - with two strikers on the pitch, the speed of forward play particularly on the counter causes other teams defenders to get panicky. This could be the key to breaking down more defensive teams. For attacking teams counter-attack is clearly the way to go.

It's an unqualified GOOD thing Lukaku is a nice guy.  Without that, he doesn't let Everton "touch" him, and doesn't insist on coming back here.  Though he won't stay here forever, I bet his heart keeps him here at least an extra season or two.  A lesser character individual (ie, almost any other star forward player) would have agitated like mad after a subpar season where he received little/poor service like the one we just had.

Lukaku never said a cross word about any of his teammates, kept working his ass off to the bitter end, and came back hungry to lead us to redemption.

NBC's announcers made good points today about Rom's workrate being infectious and jump starting the squad.  I know I beat this drum so much to be tiring, but he's a real leader in the making.

They played his usual 4-2-3-1. I don't know why everybody is talking about us playing with two upfront when we actually played the normal tactis. Lukaku on top and Kone on the right wing with Cleverly at left and Barkley central.

Kone was immense today as he actually looked like beeing a striker but still was following Southamptons left back all the time. People may not have seen it too much but McCarthy was way more offensive doing runs all the time which created a lot of space for Barkley who was simply brilliant. In fact this was a genius tactic for this game.

I'd say it was more fluid than the standard 4-2-3-1.

We seemed to start off with a pure diamond and with two up front but then asked Kone to cover their full back going forward.

I think it turned into the sort of "melted" (Rodgers would love this) 4-3-3 that we saw away at Newcastle in 13/14 where basically Cleverley was asked to cover a lot of ground to allow Lukaku, Kone and Barkley to sort out between them who could stay higher up the pitch for counter attacks/cover their full backs.

Cleverley ended up on the right for much of the 2nd half for example.

That's why we have to stretch the pitch.

There's always space somewhere.

And if it means crossing the ball more so be it.

Barkley and Cleverley are capable of putting it good balls from wide-ish positions as well as Coleman and Kone(!) from more conventional positions. Not to mention obviously the other players not in the team atm.

Utd have always been able to hit people on the break and they must have had teams sit back against them more than anyone else over the past 20 years.

It doesn't have to all be length of the field charges either.

It can just be direct play on the edge of the box like a fast one/two.

Problem is when we're at home v a west brom or Sunderland who are going to park 10 men behind the ball at every opportunity. Counter attacking is great when it's on but the majority of the time we're going to have to rely on creativity in tight areas to create chances...which we don't seem to be able to do. Having Kone to support rom would help in this respect so I hope RM sticks with starting him but I can see us reverting back to a 'Watford' type setup as soon as we're playing someone shite at home.

Having Kone to support rom would help in this respect so I hope RM sticks with starting him but I can see us reverting back to a 'Watford' type setup as soon as we're playing someone shite at home.

But the second half against Watford shows what I mean. We can scare defences. We can attack with pace and power no matter how many they put behind the ball. It's the attitude that matters more than the formation. Roberto said as much post match, when he said the group didn't accept that the first half against Watford was right, and wanted to show from the start against Southampton the right attitude.

Of course it remains to be seen, but given our first defensive team at home is going to be Sunderland on 1st November, and with a bit of luck they will still be on the ropes, the team might have gotten so used to battering people by then that teams are coming with fear, and a quick beasting from Lukaku and Kone with Barkley free moving from slightly deeper should strike terror into the most disciplined defender. This is how top teams break down the bus, and we can do it too. Just as those endless games in the past where we would play the likes of United, or Chelsea, battle away determinedly, and then find ourselves with 15 minutes left and being hammered, with that sick certain feeling it was only a matter of time until.. oh fuck they scored. We almost came to believe it was inevitable - we need to get visitors believing the same.

I'm hoping this result wille us the belief we  been lacking for a while and I certainly think it's no coincidence that it came with playing Kone and Lukaku. We should definitely do this at Goodison from now on, never mind dominating possession, we need to be more incisive and two up front  would give defenders more to think about

So much of yesterday's success was down to great attitude, intensity and work-rate.  Personnel, tactics and formation mean nothing if you haven't got these.

Just like in Martinez' first season, if you can ally the two then you have a great chance of making the best of the player's own abilities.

The player's have to take most of the responsibility for this and they cant go back to thinking they are superior to the opposition without proving it. You have to win the 'battle' before you can play.
