Solskjaer: Cardiff need a miracle against Saints

Basingstoke Gazette: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has conceded that Cardiff need to “produce a miracle” in their quest for Premier League survival.

Cardiff dropped a place to 19th following their crushing 3-0 home defeat against Crystal Palace, and they are now six points adrift of possible safety with just five games left.

Former Cardiff player Joe Ledley scored Palace's second goal, in between strikes from ex-Saint Jason Puncheon, as the Londoners continued their spectacular revival under manager Tony Pulis.

Cardiff have picked up just two wins and bagged eight points in Solskjaer’s 13 league games in charge ahead of next Saturday’s visit to St Mary’s.

And the manager has already admitted Cardiff need a “miracle” to win at Saints.

The Bluebirds away form is particularly dire with just seven points from 16 games, and only one success – 2-1 at Fulham last September.

“It was a big game, and I am very disappointed for the fans and players that we ended up with a performance like this,” Solskjaer said.

“If you produce a miracle - that sometimes happens in football - you are still capable of getting out of this and staying in the Premier League.

“I am full of fight. It has been a tough season for everyone involved with the club. Today in the second half, it showed a little bit that it has taken its toll.

“There was a lack of belief a little bit towards the end. We ran out of ideas.

“They are professional footballers and they have got to realise they have still got something to fight for.

“If you do produce a miracle against Southampton, suddenly you might be back here in with a chance.”

Puncheon is now Palace’s joint top league scorer this season with five strikes, the same as Marouane Chamakh.

"It was a disappointing performance. Things like this give me more fight. Things will have to happen, things will have to change.

A game that will be a proper challenge as we are definitely expected to win and nothing else will do.
There will be doomngloomerchants and WUM's throughout the week telling us the end is nigh.
We are 8th
we will probably finish in 8th
It will earn us a fantastic amount of money and next season we will endeavour to improve upon that finishing position and do better in all competitions.
But that will not be enough for some
I hope that those unhappy people can find some good in their lives and go away and enjoy that.
Leave us happyclapper Saints supporters to enjoy the fact that we have by far and away, the best, and currently most successful, club on the south coast and pretty much all of Southern England.
Spite is all that is left to celebrate when these fools back a losing team, pick any of the current also rans,, they are all below the Saints.

Feel so sad for Jay Rod.

I think we have to carry on until the end of the season with only a little experimentation: Team for Cardiff:
.
Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Davis, Cork, Morgan, Lallana, Gaston and Lambert.
.
But I would bring on Gallagher for half a game and me I would be looking to bring young saint Mills in until the end of the season for 10 min cameo's.

It may have something to do with the fact that they are good enough to be there. Did you watch the game? We played them off the park until the diabolical decision that gifted them a goal. Sharpe was let go because he wasn't deemed good enough so we will never know if he was or not. Barnard couldn't even get in the Bournemouth side when he was out on loan. All of our young players who have played have proven themselves good enough already with the possible exception of Gallagher who hasn't exactly had the same amount of game time. Perhaps he will be given more chance now that Jay is injured. We are 8th in the league with these youngsters ffs. Where would you expect us to be?

That's the team for me, subject to injuries. Gaston is the one to watch, and needs an extended run. He has a chance to stake his claim for the World Cup and needs to take it. Come the final reckoning if he hasn't shown us more than glimmers let's cash in and replace him. If money is tighter this summer we can't afford £12m tied up in him and £16m in Osvaldo.

Billy Sharp: too slow

FLOL, this is brilliant!

A front line of Forte, Barnard and Sharpe would have MURDERED Man City yesterday. Barnard in particular should really be going to Brazil as he'd easily 'do a better job' than Rickie.

.
But I would bring on Gallagher for half a game and me I would be looking to bring young saint Mills in until the end of the season for 10 min cameo's.
That's the team for me, subject to injuries. Gaston is the one to watch, and needs an extended run. He has a chance to stake his claim for the World Cup and needs to take it. Come the final reckoning if he hasn't shown us more than glimmers let's cash in and replace him. If money is tighter this summer we can't afford £12m tied up in him and £16m in Osvaldo.
I agree, but I don't think he will cut the mustard. He doesn't have the athleticism or the mental attitude to run all day and he's always looking for the spectacular goal after beating two or three players not a quick exchange of passes. I think his extended run will be three games unless he gets lucky against Cardiff. If he fails give Sam Gallagher a run for three games.

He will be playing for his WC place not for Saints and we will have to be careful if he does come good. I think he is more suited to Italian football than the PL.

I am probably one of of the few that don't want to see Cardiff relegated, but this week I don't want that to interfere with our 8th Position! Must not let sentiment get in the way, except that I hope the lads dedicate a positive result to Jay Rod.

Southampton FC has a bit of a balancing act to perform on Saturday.
On the one hand Poch and his staff must put out the team that is best for Saints, which, in my humble opinion, for what it's worth, is to give as much experience as possible to the upwardly-mobile youngsters we have progressing through our system. With 7th/8th/9th to be our finishing position, and no chance of Europe or relegation, our remaining games are now friendlies. To this end I would like to see more of the likes of Reed, Rowe, and Gallagher get their chance, to give them precious game time against some of the best teams in the world.
I don't care whether we finish above or below certain clubs or keep them out of Europe out of some feeling of spite, I am not that petty, I want what is best for SFC.

On the other hand, we are playing a team in a mad fight to stay up and it could be said we have an obligation to Cardiff's relegation rivals to put out our best team, to be professional and to try and thump em. (The likes of Fulham, Norwich, and Sunderland expect this of us, and in their position we would feel the same).

So what is it to be? Experience for the kids or balls out to win?

Give Cody cropper a go too if boru/kelvin is still out, it's not possible for him to be worse than gazza, in my opinion gazza is as much use as Captain Hook at a gynaecologists convention,

We all remember the last day of our previous Premiership run. Man Utd came with their strongest side and we fought but just came up short and were relegated. Ferguson said he was only showing respect to the other relegation contenders, so must we. Re last weekend. Like Balakovski before, Gazza is no deputy and looked out of place. Our best players were average in the second half, Morgan, Jose, Chambers and Cork. Rickie showed what a wonderful football brain he has by picking out so many players unselfishly.

Ramirez must be given a forward role to impress. Final point. Puncheon was impressive last weekend.
