Southampton: Providing a bright future for the England national team

Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw have broken into the England squad and secured big-money moves to Liverpool and Manchester United respectively last summer, having been schooled at Southampton.

What do the Football Association's head of coach and player development, the goalkeeping coach, Fraser Forster, Nathaniel Clyne, Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, Theo Walcott and Rickie Lambert have in common?

They are all currently involved with the England setup and all have one mutual club who have had an influence on their career: Southampton.

Gone are the days when Saints fans waited for an England squad to be announced, knowing the best on the south coast would...

Reality check: Saints' Champions League bid remains only a dream

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Southampton can continue their great run of form when they play the big boys.

"I have absolutely no sympathy for Southampton. They have a choice as a club. They don't have to sell. They had that choice. Maybe Southampton's objectives have changed. They were on course to be a Champions League club, I believe, but obviously, that has changed," -- Brendan Rodgers, August 2014

Whoops. The Liverpool manager might not be the modern-day Nostradamus, but, in fairness, he wasn't alone in feeling that Southampton had lost their ambition and were on a downward spiral. It is safe to...

Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez

In a season when Arsenal have lurched from the less than sublime to the beyond ridiculous, the Chilean stands head and shoulders above anyone else. Desire, work rate, energy, application, a hunger to make an impact on games and the end product to back it up. So far...

Was it a penalty? Steven Gerrard certainly thought so!

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was disappointed his side were not given what he described as a "clear penalty" in their 2-1 Premier League defeat against Chelsea at Anfield, after a shot from Steven Gerrard hit the arm of Cahill in the area late on.

Did Gary Cahill get away with a hand ball vs. Liverpool?

Koeman's Plan B pays off as sub Shane Long beats Leicester

The Saints continued their brilliant start to the season with another win and another clean sheet.

Is there anything Ronald Koeman's Southampton team can't do? For seventy minutes on Saturday it looked like they might play out a frustrating 0-0 draw in the pouring rain against a Leicester side that played for such a scoreline from the kick-off.

But good managers change things when it isn't clicking and good players take their opportunities when they are presented them.

Cue Shane Long. The Saints had been completely dominant in terms of play and possession but were also sloppy and uncharacteristically...

Southampton's success means Tottenham can sign Jay Rodriguez

Jay Rodriguez showed the White Hart Lane crowd how it's done.

January will be here before you know it. To tide us over, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Rodriguez move given green light

Mauricio Pochettino's interest in Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez has been well documented.

The Spurs boss was desperate to make a move for his former charge during the summer, but a combination of the Tottenham board's unwillingness to gamble on Rodriguez -- who was returning from a serious knee injury -- and the fact that the Saints weren't open to losing any...
