🏆 :derbyfc: Derby County v Saints :saints: FA Cup 3rd Round

At Pride Park, a nice break from the tribulations of the league and one, I hope, Ralph takes seriously.

Have at it Sotonians.

One upside of this match is that it uses up one of hojbergs suspended games

Nice one, @BTripz!

Should be a stream as it is being shown on BeIn Sports 1 across Middle East.
We need a name a random academy player to be on the bench this weekend poll
I’d go for a CB, Alfie Jones if fit?

Still on loan in Scotland?

Hesketh maybe?

Yeah I thought about that one when Hojbjerg was suspended. Good possibility.

Smallbone must be in with a shout too.

Sims back from Reading too.

Ralph said he wanted more pace, so Sims would be my pick.

Given the number of injuries, suspensions and potential suspensions we are facing at present, I think we can expect quite a few youngsters thrown in against Derby.

Yeah cos we need to rest most of the first team after all to concentrate on the league…which we will be doing if we don’t put out a strong enough side to beat Derby


Didn’t they give us a bollocking in pre season as well?

Yep, 3:0 I think

Edit: looked it up and yep, 3:0

Yep, went there and saw that bollocks. Truly embarrassing. Came away with our tails well and truly between our legs. Knew we were going to be in for a rough ride in the league after that. No game plan, no team work, no management. Very poor all round. Derby will be well up for this.

Jeez @Saint-CD you’re sounding a lot like @Barry-Sanchez what happened to your renowned positivity??!!


Us getting stuffed 3-0 wasn’t the only thing he saw in Derby, he also saw the thriving and vibrant nightlife and from then on knew that getting on the Baz bus was the only way forwards :lou_wink_2:


I took this well used photo of Mark Hughes at the ground on the day …
