Totally know that the usual "Boo Crew" will abuse me for saying it, but GOOD ON YOU, DANI!
It's good to see that he has the passion, especially as he was defending Schneiderlin!

He's done well so far this season, having been unsettled on arrival thanks to Roma's Boo Boys, he quickly established friendships with the players and learned (the hard way) that the Prem isn't the easy option that many Europeans think it is.
He has only picked up a couple of goals, but that is just as much down to the rest of the squad as it is him! Anyone watching every game, as I have, will have noticed that he constantly makes intelligent runs, outwitting opposition teams, but the rest of the squad lack the experience at the highest levels to spot his movements and pick him out. With time, this will change as our youngsters go from strength to strength and learn so much more about the game and each other!

The "boo boys" that keep moaning about everyone all of the time need to sit back and relax a bit! You may be fans, but you're not SUPPORTERS!

Give the guy a break!

I predict Dani's Southampton future to be very short, from what I can gather NC is not a man that will allow anyone to disrupt or divert his visions and his goals, he means business and he a model professional and he expects the same from those around him. Dani needs to remember that he is a business man too, brought in to take care of business on the pitch and score goals, at the moment that isn't working soviet the great goal the other week he is obviously struggling to adapt. Flashes of brilliance are not enough, consistent progress is key and with this extra off off pitch incident, I think he may just bring a spotlight down on himself and questions will start to be asked.
Is he making the impact that was expected?
Does he carry the same vision and belief as the rest of the club?
I think not, even more so now, with this incident I think he's more of a distraction.?

Apparently it was for giving 1 of them a slap in the tunnel! (to be clear, that's not a metaphor).
I didn't see him actually do anything in the scuffle, but people were definitely trying to restrain him. The slap story would seem to make sense, but I can't guarantee the validity, having not seen it.

If he gets a three match ban then bring in Sam Gallagher and maybe Ozzy will struggle to gain his place back in the starting 11.

Also fine him all his wages while he is out.

Violence should not be condoned after all there are a few people I would like to kick in the groin but so far have managed to stop myself.,

Maybe if Fonte had managed to kick Pardew in the groin - now thats a different matter!!!

The perfect story for the Osvaldo bashers to post the usual bile. I for one like the lad and think he will become a saints favourite if given the level of support due any player that pulls on the red and (a splash) of white. I've said it before and I'll say it again. If we have progressed so far that an Italian national side striker is not good enough for us then we really have come a long way. Incidentally most of those baying for his blood for showing too much passion are the same ones whining he didn't have enough at the start. Just saying. Rant over.

Having studied all the available material, it's clear that the entire Saints contingent were not only entirely innocent, but displayed exemplary behaviour throughout in trying to keep the peace.

On the other hand the Newcastle contingent were not only entirely guilty, but displayed disgraceful behaviour throughout in trying to create a fight.

I have no doubt the FA verdict will be to congratulate and thank all concerned at St Marys whilst condemning and fining all concerned at St James.

He may be 'struggling to adapt' a bit, but don't most new (overseas) players?

Les Ferdinand recently said when talking about the new Spurs signings that most players take 6 months to a year to adapt to the Premier League - why should Dani be any different?

He's obviously a confidence player and needs to feel loved, and those who moan about him (not necessarily you but fans in general) are in effect cutting off their nose to spite their face. Giving him support gives him the best chance to succeed, moaning about him will result in a self-fulfilling prophesy.

You obviously won't mind then if I try to kick you in the nuts because I am passionately commited to disagreeing with what you wrote?

Can't wait to see Dani show this type of "commitment" to the ref soon.
Im so passionately committed I will get myself possibly banned for Cardif, Everton and Chesea to make sure Morgan doesn't get red cared! I guess the rest of the team are just not "commited" enough to do likewise!
Violence and stupidity is the wrong type of "commitment" and unless Dani realises that then we will have to dress him up like Hannibl Lecter on the bench.
You may want to think about the fact that there is no place for violence in football and you should not condone it, this type of "commitment" is not what we should be teaching our children, putting in a good shift is!
And to be fare I think Dani does that and I have never had any reason to question his commitment in the fist place.

I did wonder at the time if someone had maybe grabbed him there.
As already said, 3 match ban if guilty, for violent conduct.

You're missing the point. I'm not saying it's always right to go around kicking people in the balls (I'm a moral relativist - you have to judge each case on its merits) but there are people on here who say he's only here for the money and he doesn't care for the team or whatever. If those things were true he would have sat back and watched the drama unfold - he wouldn't have got involved and landed himself in trouble. Sometimes the noble thing to do isn't always the right thing to do in the eyes of the law.

Can't wait to see Dani show this type of "commitment" to the ref soon. Im so passionately committed I will get myself possibly banned for Cardif, Everton and Chesea to make sure Morgan doesn't get red cared! I guess the rest of the team are just not "commited" enough to do likewise! Violence and stupidity is the wrong type of "commitment" and unless Dani realises that then we will have to dress him up like Hannibl Lecter on the bench. You may want to think about the fact that there is no place for violence in football and you should not condone it, this type of "commitment" is not what we should be teaching our children, putting in a good shift is! And to be fare I think Dani does that and I have never had any reason to question his commitment in the fist place.[/p][/quote]You're missing the point. I'm not saying it's always right to go around kicking people in the balls (I'm a moral relativist - you have to judge each case on its merits) but there are people on here who say he's only here for the money and he doesn't care for the team or whatever. If those things were true he would have sat back and watched the drama unfold - he wouldn't have got involved and landed himself in trouble. Sometimes the noble thing to do isn't always the right thing to do in the eyes of the law.[/p][/quote]Sorry, In that case I mostly agree wth you, I Love Dani but not what he allegedly did, I am a fan.

In fairness, we should keep level headed and await the verdict of the FA before finding those bad tempered violent Newcastle swines - who have been done twice before for pitchside trouble - guilty.

It's already clear, however, they are guilty of fabricating a story that Dani was involved. A spot of bother in the white heat of a tense match might be forgivable, but stitching up an entirely innocent player is not.

Good on you Dani, if some of the 'fans' on here had the same passion for supporting their team as you do for supporting your team mates, we'd be in a better place right now.

Little advice for all the boo brothers in need of a wahmbulance - maybe instead of jumping on a players back, who, clearly enjoys being here, you should support them, Dani's played 13 games (772 mins (equivalent of 8.5 full games)) and scored 3 times, Rickie has played 16 (1,091 mins (equivalent of 12 full games)) and scored 4 with at least one being a pen, yet none of you boo him? why? it's a similar (maybe worse?) record to Dani this season, or are you all just extremely hypocritical?. As MoPo said, the only players who don't make a mistake are the ones who sit on the bench. Support everyone, Yosh, Hooiveld, Gazza, Fox, Guly, Wanyama and Osvaldo included, or, f off down to fratton, we don't need 'fans' like you.

Deserved a slap for not supporting the saints great to have ossie in the team seems like he's really gives everything he has which gives him an edge over Ramirez but I would still like to see him a bit more on the pitch.
COYR 3-0 vs spuds easy

I think dani is a quality player and just the flair player we needed, give the lad a chance he's only been in English football for 3 months!! At this moment he's settled into the home games pretty well just needs a bit of time to adapt to away games

I really cannot understand the mentality of most of you on here. What use is Daniel during a three match ban? He is not paid to defend other players and kick stupid old geezers in the groin. He is paid to hit Premiership teams where it really hurts...in the back of their net.

Exactly made my point. Some Muppets mark me down for saying what I did say...without having the intelligence to point out why! I really cannot understand the mentality...etc.

What Dani has done, apart from the obvious, is to further galvanise his relationship with his teammates and the staff. Regardless how stupid the actual action was, in the heat of the moment, he showed all of those around him (squad & staff), in front of the fans, thatched he is willing to put his own neck on the line to defend them.
That small act will work in his favour as that will have led to further bonding amongst everyone within the club. This in turn will build a better understanding between them, which in turn leads to better chemistry amongst the players. Better chemistry among the players will lead to more players anticipating each others movements and will in turn lead to more goals from many players, not just from Dani!
Think of it like a game of chess; sometimes it is necessary to sacrifice a piece in order to make a greater gain in the match.
Not a chess player? Then think of it like a "professional foul" sometimes it is better for a player to make a challenge that they know will cause them to be carded, just to help out their defensive teammates by breaking up the play.
Sometimes losing a minor battle turns out to be a great step towards a major victory in the bigger war!

Your failure to understand this, is why some people gave your comment the "thumbs down".
