Southampton are in and around the top half of the table and their fans here in the Transfer Tavern are optimistic they can keep pace as 2017 kicks on.
Claude Puel has done a decent job since joining the club in the summer and he seems to have settled things down at St Mary’s as his side look to push for the top six come the end of the season.
The Saints have been ticking over nicely over the past couple of weeks but a few big results will be needed in their upcoming fixtures if they are to keep pace with the sides in the top eight.
They’ve got every chance of being there come the end of the campaign but the key to their success will be beating teams around them.
But, luckily for their French manager, he’s got a big squad available and with the transfer window now upon us, he’ll have the chance to add to his squad as well.
However, here in the pub there are a few Saints fans who believe there are a couple of names on the fringes of the squad who should be getting more game-time.
So with that in mind, here are 2 Southampton players who need to ask Puel for more minutes on the pitch…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
