Osvaldo out to face Cup minnows

Basingstoke Gazette: Dani Osvaldo Dani Osvaldo

Dani Osvaldo is hoping to make his Saints return this weekend against a Yeovil side whose entire squad costs the same as he earns in a few days.

The club record signing, who joined for a fee that could reach as much as £14.5m and is reported to earn around £50,000 a week, should play in the FA Cup fourth round tie against Yeovil.

The Somerset club’s entire squad cost an estimated £20,000 – and all that was on young striker Kieffer Moore from non league Dorchester Town last summer. A combination of injury, illness, and then a three game ban for violent conduct has meant the Italian has been sidelined since mid-December, his last outing being that fateful game against Newcastle that led to the suspension.

Osvaldo had a tricky time adapting to the Premier League in the immediate aftermath of his move from Roma in the summer but was just beginning to pick up some form before his extended absence.

He scored in back-to-back home games for Saints against Aston Villa and Man City before the Newcastle debacle.

Osvaldo was forced off injured at half time of the game at St James Park but later landed himself in trouble after a flare up between the respective benches.

At that stage Saints were obviously unaware that illness would follow his recovery from injury and appealed the FA’s violent conduct charge.

As it turned out, if they were to have accepted it Osvaldo would have served his ban during his recovery from injury and illness and would have been available since the turn of the year.

However, fate conspired against them and in fact he picked up the ban just as he was physically ready to return to the first team squad.

Mauricio Pochettino is likely to give Osvaldo game time against Yeovil.

Though the FA Cup is still not a top priority for Saints this season, Pochettino fielded a pretty strong side to get past Burnley 4-3 in the previous round.

He will give time to fringe players but also ensure he has a side capable of reaching the fifth round.

The gulf between the finances of the two clubs is obvious though when you look at the massive fee paid for Osvaldo and the meagre amount forked out for the entire Yeovil squad, who are made up almost exclusively of either free or loan signings.

Even without £12m man Gaston Ramirez and £8.5m centre half Dejan Lovren, who are both missing through injury, and potentially £12m Victor Wanyama who is only touch and go to be fit, Saints still have an embarrassment of riches at their disposal and could field the likes of £7m Jay Rodriguez.

The latest blow for Gary Johnson’s side, currently second bottom of the Championship but coming into the game on the back of an impressive win over Birmingham, is the news that Leicester loanee Zoumana Bakayogo has had to return to his parent club.

The full back ruptured his ACL at Birmingham last weekend.

Let's hope he starts repaying his fee,because up to now he hasn't performed to his expectations. Clinical finishing up front would make the difference between one point and three points!.

You might not think the FA Cup is a priority, but I do - we are pretty certain to win the "9th place League" this season, don't have to worry much about being relegated to the "pack hovering above the relegation zone" league, while still having a chance of being promotoed to the "just outside the Europo League places" pack. I therefore see the FA Cup as priority Number One for this season, and want us to do our best to win it.

Aside from that, do you think that Utd buying Mata counts as a 'panic buy'? As such, it's not in the same class as buying that donkey Fellani at the fag end of the last transfer window, but other than the fact that Mata is world class & Utd's midfield is a pile of Kaka, it has all the hallmarks - desperate team buys big to keep the fans at bay and insert a spark of hope.

Would like to see Saints go for this, nothing else really to play for need 10pts to be safe in the league. Holding top half position would be good, So much disruption with injuries and off field politics, has damaged the season. Lorven will be missed as he is the king pin of our defence over the next weeks.

Gents and Ladies, this is a must win. Think what it would do for fragile morale if we were to somehow blow this!!! Moreover, we have nothing much to get hugely excited about this (wonderful, crazy) season now that we are pretty much guaranteed of finishing somewhere between 7th and 14th. Get through this, another soft tie in the fifth and the players will be in a groove. And the yunguns will have got a good run as well. I really like the look of Big Sam (no not that one). Future song "Big Sam, Big Saaa-aaam, Big bad Sam".

pedantic grammar check: he "is paid" £50,000 a week. He does not "earn" that amount.

In fact it's been widely reported that the £50K a week figure is his net take home pay after tax. The gross figure is £70,000 - £75,000.

I very much agree with Tony in Liberia above - we have a realistic chance of winning the FA Cup this year, a lot of Premier League teams have already been knocked out. That would give a route into the Europa League, even if we lose in the final to a team that has qualified for the Champions League on their league position. We MUST devote a lot of effort to the FA Cup this season.

In my opinion with 31 points after 22 games is not a guarantee that Saints are safe, when they have 45 points then I would think Saints will have another season in the Premiership.
Looking at last seasons finish if Saints continue with there form the ratio is about an average 1 & 1/2 points per game and they would finish about 10th if they win more the average will obviously rise and they would finish in the top 6 but it's a must for more wins.

The FA Cup rounds are important at this stage to win and hopefully get to Wembley and win the final but I've been watching Saints for 40 years and upset can happen, the most memorable was in 1976 in January when Aston Villa played at the Dell that put Saints on the road to Wembley and to make my day they won it on my Birthday May 1st, the only rotten bit was my first wife threw her Dinner at me full of Beetroot and Lettuce because I had to much attention for Southampton FC build up than for her, suffice to say I divorced her COYR

Yep. Boruc is rusty and should have saved both goals against Sunderland so I might give him a run out. If not then Gazza otherwise when will he get games? Big Sam instead of Adam. I very very much would pick Targett, we need some pressure on Shaw like we have at right back.

I'd have Luke, Morgan, Adam, Fonte and Rickie on the bench so if things do go wrong we can pull it back no problem. I think where we've gone wrong in the cup before is not having the options of the big guns on the bench.

Hi guys, for my 74 th Birthday my son is taking me to see Saints v Stoke. I had a season ticket at the Dell but had to give it up when I moved so this will be my 1st visit to St M. We have to travel a long way and have no option but to use a car and as there is no park and ride I wonder if any of you have any advice about parking. Thanks for anyone who can help
Since I'm in Rwanda, and since this is a special occasion, you could park on my drive - my house is in Woolston, so it's walkable if you can manage the Itchen Bridge, or there's plenty of buses if you can't. Send me your email address, and I'll be able to arrange it. Can't make this an open offer to all Saints fans as my son uses it and the neighbours get a bit iffy, but I feel a bit nostalgic since Saints v. Stoke was my first game at the Dell (anyone else remember Frank Saul as the striker?). Hope you get a resounding victory as a special birthday present :-)
A proper Saint ...nice one Tony.

Osvaldo out is corect, for 3 games, he has been bashing one or other players. What a Total Waste of The space.
He's no Saint.
More trouble than he's worth unfortunately.
I heard he's going to be training on his own now, which I'm sure he'll beat himself up about.
