That's actually pretty damn accurate to my view on him. I'm not nearly as familiar with the full depth of his career, at least definitely not to the level of some in here I'm sure. But I've seen enough of him here and there over the years to know what to expect from him, both in terms of the highs and lows. I'm not trying to rank him against the best, mostly because there's no easy way to do so. I can say he's not better than guys like Ronaldo and Messi, but that doesn't make it easy to classify him. I just love watching what he can do more than anything. He's just a fun guy to watch. Sure, more so when he's doing something well than when he's not, but isn't that the case for most players?

Stop take the shirt off when you score. This is football, not some ****ing Chippendales.

•Hatem Ben Arfa (hamstring)
•Pa**** Cisse (thigh)
•Ryan Taylor (knee)
•Dan Gosling (knee)
•Yohan Cabaye (groin)
•Haris Vuckic (knee)
•Shola Ameobi (groin)
•Jonas Gutierrez (knee)
•James Perch (thigh)
•Adam Campbell (neck)

This is a must win for Southampton in my eyes.

You mean "easy win" right?

Newcastles injury + suspended list (Coloccini) could have a legitimate shot at beating their starting XI.

Have you seen how many goals Saints have conceded? haha

If anything at all, goals will be scored.

Newcastle has been able to keep games close, really, but they have no one that can control the ball for even 5 seconds with Cabaye and Ben Arfa out.

I have a feeling Ramirez is going to have his best game for Southampton so far. He looked superb against QPR and his passing ability is the best I have ever seen from a Saints player. Put a few balls on Lambert's foot and they will give Newcastle nightmares.

Just hope he can live up to the £20mill price tag...

Rickie Lambert, who I took to the club, I am so proud of him. I always said he could be a Premier League player and he is proving it.

I would watch it live but I have work from 8:00 to noon.

Gonna isolate myself from Twitter and turn off my push alerts while the game's going on, and I even told my dad not to watch it (he's a de facto Liverpool supporter now ) so I wouldn't be able to tell the result from his facial expression when I tell him I'm gonna watch the match.

I will be regrettably tuning into whatever newcastle stream i can find. Wednesday will be on tape delay.

No Coloccini, Cabaye, and Ben Arfa minimum tomorrow but Capn Colo returns for wednesdays match.

That pass from Suarez to Sterling was made way too early.
