View from the Opposition – Southampton
A bit about you:
Name: Graham East
Current home town: Leicester
How long have you supported your team? 38 Years
Overview of your club:
Favourite thing about your home ground: The view (but overall I actually prefer the Dell)
Favourite match played by your team & why: Anytime we beat Portsmouth!
Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Matt Le Tissier of course!
About our forthcoming match against you:
Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Alex McCarthy – without him we wouldn’t be in this division this season
Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Jack Stephens – always puts in a shift
Player in our squad you most fear and why? So glad Jamie Vardy isn’t playing so now I’ll go for Maddison – settled well for you guys and looks a top buy already
Up and coming prospect in your squad? Jake Vokins – demonstrated by being Young Player of the Year last year
How do you think you’ll do against us? I’d take a 4-1 win to reverse the embarrassing scoreline last season in the same fixture.
What did you think to the summer transfer activity both in and out of your club? Big money spends on Mohammed Elyounoussi, Jannik Vestergaard & Angus Gunn (plus Stuart Armstrong) showed £54.5 million of ambition … but we’ll have to wait and see how good the investment was as it is too early to tell yet after just a few games.
Where do you think you’ll finish this season? Top 10 is the aspiration
Who do you think will win the league? Manchester City, but I think Liverpool will run them closer this year
Which three teams do you think will get relegated from the Premiership? Cardiff, Huddersfield and Fulham
Any other comments? Good feature – keep it up.
