Poch delight at Boxing Day win

Basingstoke Gazette: Mauricio Pochettino Mauricio Pochettino

Delighted Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino was buzzing after celebrating his first Christmas in English football with a much needed win.

After six games without victory Pochettino was desperate to see his side get back to winning ways at Cardiff on Boxing Day.

And his Christmas wish was granted as two first half goals from Jay Rodriguez and another from Rickie Lambert sealed a convincing three points.

“I think overall we had an amazing game. I think we did very well,” said Pochettino.

“We had a great performance, we were precise in their half, we put in an amazing shift and got an amazing result and we fully deserved the result.

“I think in the previous games we played well but the results did not come our way.

“I think in the previous games we maintained our style and how we wanted to play but again the results did not come our way.

“We have been going through a tough period of illnesses and injuries and to actually to get the win was very important.”

Saints were by far the better team at the Cardiff City Stadium and their win was fully deserved.

“It’s tough to explain in a global sense what the difference is between this game and the previous ones. Every game is a different story,” he explained.

“What’s also clear is that in the last few games we were on a very negative run, we weren’t doing well, we were playing well but weren’t getting the results.

“There were two things that happened (at Cardiff) - we played well and we were 100 per cent focussed on both areas of the pitch and we attacked and defended very well and we thoroughly deserved the win.”

It’s a busy time for Saints who now have just two clear days before facing Everton at Goodison Park.

It’s an unusual experience for Pochettino who has been used to a winter break in Spain but he said: “I think right now I am enjoying football more than ever.

“We are getting to do what we like and we are probably enjoying actually such a busy period.

“We are also seeing that the fans are enjoying this period and that makes it even better for us.

“For someone that is really passionate about football this period is amazing.

“It’s a new experience for me and I am thoroughly enjoying it.”

9th.
Brilliant.
I said at the start of the seasson if we could stay 10 th or above for most of the season we would finish better than last season.
For me for us to finish about 10th or maybe 9th, we would finish a good season and probably know where the next step would be.
Any higher or lower and we start to buy too soon and get caught up in a desparate cycle. Buy to get bigger, or to stave off a repeat.
I would prefer to have a good season of solidification and maybe a run in the cup.

BACK FROM A VERY GOOD AWAY DAY AND THE WIN.

SAINTS FANS DOMINATED THROUGHOUT AND AFTER CHANGES AT THE BACK - SAINTS LOOKED SOLID + GAZZA DID WELL.

HE SAVES WHEN HE WANTS ... HE SAVES WHEN HE WANTS ..
GAZZA NIGA HE SAVES WHEN HE WANTS.

PLAYERS WERE MADE UP AND THREW THEIR SHIRTS INTO THE CROWD AT THE END.

RICKIE LABOURED A BIT (AS IF STRUGGLING WITH FITNESS OR A KNOCK) BUT STILL SCORED.

WE ARE THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

RED ARMY 2013. WE FIGHT WE WIN.
WE HATE POMPEY.

Watched the game live. It was a mixed bag. He had some good saves, missed some high balls, made some high balls, woofed a couple of back passes. What helped was little offense from Cardiff, but this may give him a needed boost of confidence.

Defence was SOLID. Luke Shaw did very well. Yoshida did well. All the Team outplayed Cardiff.

It's true that not having Fox and error prone Hoover made a big difference.
Even the Cardiff Programme highlighted that since the start of last season.. Jos Hooiveld has scores four own goals, twice as many as any other player.

Gazza was on form - (having leaked 6 from 6 shots on target in the Villa and Spurs games) and started the game as he meant to go on with a good save (ruled offside - but no matter) and his mainly good handling continued throughout the game. He was the first over to the crowd with his shirt and was made up with his performance. He worked very hard today and needs to take that forward to his next game.

GOOD FOR HIM.

GREAT TO GET A COMPREHENSIVE AWAY WIN !!

Cardiff really didn't show any desire to remain in the premier league. Despite sealing with 3 goals inside 26 mins we did gift them chances which most teams would have put away. Again 60% possession for Saints and looking great on paper but still some wayward passing and lost possession to work on.. guarantee Poch will work on it and improve from here.. Fabulous 3 pts but feet on the ground and looking forward to movers and shakers up top under Martinez.. Good Luck Saints COYS... Compliments of the season to all back home in Southampton from Auckland NZ..

back to winning ways, and in style. lalla running the show and although I doubted it at the time he now looks the obvious choice as captain.
we cruised through the second half and took the opportunity to `rest` the players during the game. the team will be that bit more fresh for the everton game.
j-rod has found great goal scoring form and looks to be pushing for a seat next to lalla on the lane to brazil.
nice to see the moaners and groaners disappear during the game today after starting their usual rubbish prior to kc off to the moaner who asked the other day `where are the next 3 points coming from?` well there you go. next 3? everton with SRL getting a brace.

Lets hope the lads recover well for the weekend.
An amazing transformation from the Spurs game where they looked leggy and struggled to dominate.
Their confidence must have been derived by the inclusion of Jose and Luke,who were both fantastic.
Gassa in goal had his best game for us, started shaky, but finished ten feet tall, great display son.
Jay Rod loves the open play and the early ball to run on to,didn't he do well.
Rickie and Adam supplied him with 2 magnificent through balls.
All through the team there was energy to burn.
Fantastic effort, fantastic result.
Everton-----Bring em on.

The only thing Cardiff troubled us with, was the quality of their crosses. They seemed to put them in the right spot most of the time. Just glad they didn't have strikers of the same calibre as Lambert and JRod, to get on the end of them..

Just what the doctor ordered. Everton will be tougher but as always I have high hopes. They've just lost at home for the first time in 2013, can't decide if that's a good or bad thing. Their keeper being sent off is definitely a good thing, although they played really well with ten men and were unlucky to lose.

What I don't understand is why he bought it.

I think the only Prem club capable of making a true profit is Man U hence the Glaziers purchase but everyone else ends up spending money to stay in the division or chase the dream. Yes you get big bucks but spend bigger. Even we have spent £70,000,000 in two years and that's despite having the best youth academy in the country! And we will spend more.

So if it's not to turn a profit what does he get out of it? Not adulation, the fans hate him!

This is not the time for discordant remarks about a poor deprived area of the world.
We can only hope that they keep their club together, perhaps a relegation to keep them happy with their new manager.
And then next season we can all go and watch them get thrashed by Eastleigh as they find their true level.

Alas, no, Mack.

Currently, we're on a late-running train from York to Brum. We'll be in Reading this evening and I fly to Porto tomorrow.

On Saturday, we went to see little Strassie's first team - Oxford United, thrash York City 0-0. Well, like PiS, Blue and the other skunts, he chose to support his local team - and you can't fault any of them for that.

Hoping to catch a game in late Feb.

True Saints fans are better than that, and feel sorry for Cardiff having their club taken over by a chairman who has nothing but contempt for the fans, after all that was us a few yrs back.
He doesn't seem to have any respect for footballing traditions does he? I can only think of one thing worse and that's supporting a club owned by their own fans!
What I don't understand is why he bought it.

I think the only Prem club capable of making a true profit is Man U hence the Glaziers purchase but everyone else ends up spending money to stay in the division or chase the dream. Yes you get big bucks but spend bigger. Even we have spent £70,000,000 in two years and that's despite having the best youth academy in the country! And we will spend more.

So if it's not to turn a profit what does he get out of it? Not adulation, the fans hate him!
Wouldnt it be funny if the infighting down the road got so bad that they split into two clubs.

I think Vincent Tan has just filled one of the relegation places.
Mackay isn't the brilliant best manager, but he was as good as Cardiff are going to get.
I think there will be an extremely difficult task for any manager going in to that club because everyone will know who is making decisions. Tan.
The players are not going to be happy to lose the man who brought them to their current position.
When it happened to Saints there was an air of lets give the new manager a chance and we were proved right.
The Cardiff situation is completely different because Tan has no regards for football or the club he owns. He just wants his own way.
There are 5 Prem League clubs who now think they have a slightly better chance of survival because the disruption is going to continue and Cardiff will not survive.
Just my personal opinion of course.

This is not the time for discordant remarks about a poor deprived area of the world.
We can only hope that they keep their club together, perhaps a relegation to keep them happy with their new manager.
And then next season we can all go and watch them get thrashed by Eastleigh as they find their true level.
I thought you were talking about Cardiff there to start with. Skunt town isn't a poor deprived area.........it's much worse than that.

Your stats suggest otherwise!

Big Lawrie would have been gone in his first season in the modern era, yet he still remains our most successful manager ever. Alex Ferguson was close to going, and today he would have gone.

I think Vincent Tan has just filled one of the relegation places.
Mackay isn't the brilliant best manager, but he was as good as Cardiff are going to get.
I think there will be an extremely difficult task for any manager going in to that club because everyone will know who is making decisions. Tan.
The players are not going to be happy to lose the man who brought them to their current position.
When it happened to Saints there was an air of lets give the new manager a chance and we were proved right.
The Cardiff situation is completely different because Tan has no regards for football or the club he owns. He just wants his own way.
There are 5 Prem League clubs who now think they have a slightly better chance of survival because the disruption is going to continue and Cardiff will not survive.
Just my personal opinion of course.
It will depend on who gets appointed surely? The Baby Faced assassin is favourite.

I see that rubber faced tw*t has predicted a draw for us against Everton.
Got to love his comments - he just can't bring himself to compliment us can he.

Still we're in a great position - 6 points clear of Stoke, Just got to keep grinding away. I 'll take draws over losses and a few sneaky wins against any team above us in the table currently.

surely some of our regular know it all moaners would think of applying for the job, after all it is so easy for them.
seriously though our chairman and club came in for a lot of flak nearly a year ago for sacking a popular manager, although most have now said that they were wrong at the time. time will tell if tan has done the right thing or not at Cardiff, I cant say that I think he will be proven right.
when we see what tan is doing at Cardiff, whats happening at hull and been done to poopey, Coventry and dirty leeds to name a few, it makes me realise how lucky we are to have been saved by ML and NC, long may NC stay at our club.
