    Hello all and welcome to another match day thread experience from Saintsfcfan. Saints go into the game having somehow scored four, yes FOUR goals in a single match. Yes it should be noted that the opposition were about as frightening as a puppy wearing a t-shirt with the word "boo" on it, but a win is a win. Did you hear that guys and gals, we won a game! Is that 3 points or 2, it's been a while so I had forgotten.

    A quick turnaround as we face the first set of midweek fixtures of the season. On Wednesday we will face Man City, which will be available on most of the UK's adult film sites. City are quite frankly a scary team to play, although Huddersfield are winning 1-0 at the time of writing. City have goals all over the pitch, as well as a 12-year old ginger kid who seems to be pretty good at passing.

    Now whilst Saints have managed to amas a 100% win record in their previous 1 game, this is most likely going to be the end of my brief stint doing match threads. The addition of Lemina back from injury may help us, however, keep the score below double figures.

    My team
    Cedric Van Dijk Hoedt Bertrand
    Lemina Hojbjerg
    Jwp Boufal Tadic
    Austin


    Forster (he's just getting up after conceding today)

    Prediction :
    Children are advised to asked a parent before they are allowed to watch the highlights. I expect Forster will need to be wrestled out of a straight jacket come full-time, muttering "they kept coming, they kept coming".

    Or we may just pull something off.....

    COYR!

    Anyone else going? If not, I'll be the one arguing with myself on the second tier.

    Bmouth on Sunday is 100 times more important. Obviously the above will never happen though, and I completely understand and accept that.

    Not me, couldn't sort shifts out and with me finishing at 3 on Wednesday and back in at 7 on Thursday it's a bit of a non starter :(

    Hopefully today will have shifted a few more tickets.

    Pierre and JWP yes, Charlie no. I would start Gabbi or Long who will chase everything. This is not the game for Austin, start him at Bournemouth.

    Bring Lemina in for Davis but field an otherwise unchanged side for me. I'm picking JWP to be influential and get at least one goal. I do thiin k we will score if we keep the spirit and pace up from the weekend. Optimistic I know.

    I'd start Austin but I'll be watching the Managers substitutions in this game to see if he has any idea how and when to influence the game. Even our subs yesterday against Everton seemed somewhat random.

    Sit deep and compact then look for set pieces for Prowse to drive crosses to our CBs and Charlie

    Cannot drop our captain. I can see why people want Lemina in but it would be appalling man management and set a bad example. The season is bigger than Man City and it’s all about team morale and attitude.
