    Subbed off around 75th minute. Largely anonymous showing. Been a poor showing for Southampton though, against a well organized Palace team that’s sitting quite deep.

    Seems a happy man with Ireland and is keen on the senior squad.

    It makes a huge difference that it is one of his parents as opposed to two of his grandparents. Grealish and Rice obviously felt a connection with Ireland but they were reaching back to grandparents and it makes it a little bit more difficult. Even though Rice's father was probably a proud Irishman, it would be difficult for him to pass the same connection to Ireland onto his son because Declan's grandparents didn't live her. The Smallbone situation is much easier given that he has spent summers here and visited grandparents here. I saw a picture recently with Anselmo Garcia McNulty and his Irish mammy and a couple of his aunts and uncles at an Irish game- that has to make a big difference in these cases.

    Wanted to post about his performance yesterday. Smallbone got a rare start, playing well for an hour before being involved in two heavy collisions within a few minutes of each other and leaving the field hurt (looks like he’s waiting to see extent of what appears to be a knee injury).

    Hopefully it’s one of those ones that looks/feels worse than initially feared. He looked more assertive both on and off the ball than I’d seen in previous matches at senior level, and also nearly scored with a close range shot.

    Has done his ACL. What a sickener; especially after starting and playing well at the weekend. We just can't seem to catch a break at the moment.

    Disaster for him. Will be doing well to get back for the start of next season. Hopefully he can still play some part in the Under 21 campaign.

    Brutal. He honestly looked like he was having a breakthrough game when it happened.

    Used to be a career ending injury, he'll be out or 6 months or so, not the end of the world.

    It’s a crucial stage in his development. He’s not established. I’m not saying it’s the end of the world but it’s a major setback and could realistically have career implications. He’s done for the season.

    Really bad luck for him as he he'd only just comeback from a injury hadn't he?

    this is when irish supporters must send him ....letters and messages to cheer him up,

    Bright side is this happened when young, he is a bit skinny so that will help him, needs to workout a bit, not much, because he is a midfielder, a 10

    Don't be wasting another minute now arguing with the likes of me here and get your big biro out to Willy Smallbone, its in your hands to stop him crying Bielsa and tell Declan & Jacky hello from us all here as you're at it.

    Smallbone returned to action today in the EFL Trophy: https://www.southamptonfc.com/news/2...trophy-2021-22

    Great to see as he is our only young midfielder coming through with significant Premier League experience

    That 21s midfield is pretty stacked:

    1. Knight
    2. Smallbone
    3. Kilkenny
    4. Coventry
    5. Connell
    6. Johansson
    7. Noss
    8. Tierney
    9. Finn
    10. Devoy
    11. Watson
    12. Hodge
    13. Lawal
    14. Grant
    15. Kavanagh

    Should be a few players finally emerging from there...

  24. Thanks From:
