Today from Colgados, we want to know a little more in depth, which until today is the revelation team of the Premier League. El Southampton, trained by ex-parakeet Mauricio Pochettino. The Saints, as they are known in England, it's a club 127 years of history. His home games are played at the St. Mary´s Stadium, capable 32.689 spectators that was inaugurated on 1 August 2001.
Currently moving to the top of the ranking, but the really remarkable thing is that it holds the pull with the great teams of the competition, those who at the end of the year will be sure in the top positions. In just two points there are six teams, these small differences between various clubs and their competitiveness make the Premier perhaps the best league of the moment alongside the Bundesliga.
The Argentine Pochettino, also called "the Sheriff of Murphy", landed in the southern UK city in January 2013, after being dismissed at Espanyol. Slowly, the Saints were moving away from the relegation places achieving permanence with one day remaining for the end of the championship.
This season, the situation is totally different at the moment. The historic English club keeps the pulse with the greats of British football and is the team with the fewest goals in the Premier, with only 4 goals against. Throughout the month of October, only the almighty Manchester United was able to score him a goal at Old Trafford, and the game ended in a draw (1-1).
The great culprit of the defensive power of this team, with the permission of the mister, is the Croatian of Bosnian origin, Dejan Lovren. born 5/7/1989, has dressed the Croatian elastic in 21 occasions and is currently going through the sweetest moment of his sports career. The central, of 1.90 m. Tall, traveled this summer to Southampton from Lyon. In his first season aboard the English club, has become the benchmark for set pieces.
Impassable, defensively speaking, he has also become a scorer. Of the 11 so many in favor that his team accumulates, 2 absolutely important bear your signature. At both Anfield and Old Trafford he became the hero of his team. To this surprising and effective signing we must add the reinforcements of Osvaldo(Roma), Tadonari Lee (Tokio FC) y Victor Animals (Celtic).
The only defeat came back in August, on matchday three against Norwich City. Since then 3 draws and 4 victories enshrine them as a very tough rival. On the fifth day they won in the city of "The Beatles" by 0-1. By then, Liverpool was the leader of the Premier. The Southampton of "Few”, it's a very rocky team, with a great defensive concentration, a lot of work and that takes advantage of set pieces like nobody else.
Know your strengths and weaknesses to perfection, the former make the most of them, and rivals find it impossible to find the seconds. His coach doesn't even want to hear about Europe, and he knows that the philosophy of the game by game is what can make them top in the standings at the end of the year. They know that their goal is permanence, but how far will he be able to hold at this level?, Will the Saints be able to maintain this pace and fight to qualify for the Champions League?, only time knows the answer.
This month they have great challenges ahead. In the next 5 days travel to London to face Arsenal and Chelsea respectively while the 7 December they receive the billionaire City. These direct confrontations with your neighbors in the classification will measure your aspirations and why not, they will give them the option to dream all year round. Surely the mythical Le Tissier, ídolo del Southampton, would you like to collaborate with it. At 44 years he continues playing in the team of his town and the one who had, retained.
