He’s technically still suspended and I believe it carries over to the first team competitions as well. 


Or it’s because of his big ego. Mad lad is picking himself in fantasy football.

Danny Ings being injured should give him more chances
It's not me it's you:-)

It's a puzzler. Looked like a prospect last year.
 
His attitude has been questioned and in the games I've seen him, his positional sense is not the best. He has blistering pace which is so key but is there much else in the locker?

I wouldn't be holding out too much hope on Obafemi to be honest. His natural ability gets him so far - he's quick, a decent passer and can finish a chance when he gets it, but his overall reading of a game seems to hold him back, positioning, vision etc. not great.

To me the areas he's lacking in look like ones that are quite coachable so there's still a good chance for him to do well but there seems to be issues with his application going by the managers previous comments about him.

It's not impossible for him to make the grade but I'd be putting it down as a bonus if he does. I think he's a lesser prospect than Connolly, Idah and Parrott.

Also I don't think he will ever be able to play as a lone striker so longer term he might be better switching to a wide right position for club and country. This would put him in direct competition with Smallbone at Southampton though.

Not in the squad again today. Long back on the bench. Ings went off injured in the first half and Nathan Tella was brought on to replace him.

Hasenhuttl none too complimentary about his attitude here:

He basically says he doesn't have the right mentality and also isn't good enough, not much more you can say really. He does have some strengths to his game to be fair, but there are glaring weaknesses also and he doesn't seem like the type that will put the work in to make the most of the abilities that he does have.

If I was calling it now I'd say he'll find his level at league 1 at best. Maybe lower than that even.

honest view given by a good manager...any of us who kicked a ball knows the need to fight for your place.At the elite level there just isn’t space or tolerance for less than 100%....he’s young hopefully he will cop on and work hard....his tweet seems a sign of his attitude tho.....again he’s young hope he gets the head down.

So he can sit on their bench too? 

He looks nothing more that a fairly average youth player with massive gaps and limitations to his game. Throw a bad attitude into the mix too. He’d be doing well to find a League One club willing to give him time at the moment. I’ve seen far better youth players than him not even manage that.

Dare I say he's proven to be a more natural finisher than Parrott, Connolly and maybe Idah based on the evidence so far. 4 goals in 29 appearances, only 9 of which have been starts, with the vast majority of his appearances brief cameos.

He clearly has attitude problems but if he could get his head straight he would be a really big asset for us.

He signed a contract last year until 2022 and he is on £525,000 a year so he was obviously rated highly enough at the club to be offered that. He'll get every opportunity at Southampton I would think but if it doesn't work out there will be other teams interested.
