The other day Dean Smith suggested Matt Targett could one day play for England. What I think he meant to say was he will again be playing in England when we play our next PL game. Because if he meant to say what he actually he said he needs to carted off to the fucking nut house. Matt Targett at 14m is a back up LB at best and I'm being mightly generous.

Hes in a competition with Marv, Wes, Trez and AEG for being the worst signing of the summer. Absolute waste of space and money the lot of them.

This lad is garbage.  Up there with Cissokho, and well, all of the rest of our less than stellar left backs of recent years.

On about 85 minutes, Targett gave the ball back to Norwich really casually, and Jack absolutely lost his shit with him. Proper bollocking.

At the minute I'd actually prefer Taylor in the team, which says it all really.

He also said his fitness was appalling when he arrived and even now he has to remind him of the level he needs to be at.  It does explain why hes slow and always blowing out his arse, but just maybe if he listens Deano might be right

I saw that Risso, I actually thought it was good leadership from Jack as it raises expectations, live on the field of play.  Something I think has been sorely missing this season.

As I said in the summer transfer thread before we signed him . I watched him a few times for Soton and his positioning was awful and he gave the ball away so much , so I thought I can not see anything to justify signing him for 7 or  8 million , the fact we signed him for the price we did is shocking and who ever sanctioned that needs a boot up the ass.

He just hit it without giving it much thought. Jack was making the point that he was in space so if he had kept a cool head, we could have kept possession, relieved the pressure and maybe have done something with it on the counter.

Hause is much better. Remember, he couldn't get in the Southampton team, that's the Southampton team that aren't very good and have spent most of the season in the bottom 3.

Terrible value for money as one day,  when we sell him, he'll go for around 2-3m.

When Mings is fit, move Hause yo left back and have Konsa and Elmo on the right hand side. More of a solid base to build from and all comfortable on the ball.

Elmo? Not in a million years for me. Was awful yesterday and never should he be playing ahead of Guilbert

I didn't think Elmo was that bad.  Nothing special, but not a car crash.  Guilbert started the season quite well, but was spectacularly awful against Southampton.  I guess the trick with players like Guilbert is to spot when they're having a dip in form and get them out of the side, like Smith did yesterday.  A bit like Amavi when he was here.  Clearly talented, but very inconsistent.

He was poor against Southampton for sure, but then they all were. Elmohamady gives me no comfort in defence so I guess it comes down to personal preference, but I'd certainly prefer Guilbert as I think there's more to come from him. We know there's nothing more to see from Elmo. Sorry Elmo.
