With Walcott on loan at the Saints now, Michael's playing time went down even more. Maybe he'll get a Championship loan.

But not Long and Smallbone? Why have you singled out Obafemi as the guy to have a pop at?

Walcott's knocking on 32 and has been playing senior football since aged 16. Like other players who broke through early, ie Owen and Rooney, his decline started in his late twenties. He's a busted flush. I wouldn't be too worried  about my long-term prospects if I was Obafemi.

Adams and Ings look good together so will be tough to break that up until one picks up a knock or gets a bit leggy.

Off topic but disappointed Smallbone has lost his place and really hope to see him in Italy next week.
A centre three of himself right, Knight left and Coventry in behind is enticing (I know dropping Ronan who I'm a big fan of).

Obafemi to play centrally with Afolabi left and Elbouzedi right is the front 6 for me.

Adam's is poor In my opinion, had few games where he scored 3 or 4 goals at end of last season but dont see the fuss about him.

Seems like Long is ahead of Michael in the pecking order. But I doubt many of them get time. For Michael I think he needs to develop himself and should be playing. Long is probably content to finish his career on the bench / as a sub.

What's after happening here? Played over 20 PL games last season and isn't getting much of a look in now?

He’s a very weird build. He’ll have to be incredibly good to make it at PL level. A lot of football just comes down to your physicality.

Still don't understand how he was considered good enough to play last season but has dropped down this one.

Basically Long is a bench option at best for Southampton and last season Che Adams couldn't hit a barn door. So Obafemi got some game time by default really.

This season Adams is looking better and they've signed Walcott so Obafemi has fallen down the pecking order. Hopefully this is the wake up call he needs to change his attitude, get off the burgers and get back into the first team. He really could go either way, he can make it in the Premier League or he could end up being a league 1 standard player or worse. It's up to him.

Not that trickey. Che Adams wasn't great for large periods of last season and he's started this season very well. Some on here I'd imagine would be giving out that Ings is starting ahead of himLOL

At this moment it not looking great for an Irish players point of view.
3 keepers  Randolph, Kelleher and Travers all 2nd choice.
Doherty on bench, Coleman injured a lot lately.
Brady,  Mcclean, Arter, mollumby, Smallbone and Hourihane all not getting much starts.
Connolly under bit more pressure now with the signing of welbeck and long obafemi not starting.

Hopefully things will turn around as it is a long season.

Most of those players are not starters for Ireland anyway.

Is he gone from the Southampton panel altogether or is it just due to the sending off from under23? Smallbone still injured anyway

I think he will/should be one of a good few Irish players to look for a loan move in January.

Obafemi 
Molumby
Smallbone 
Coventry
Hourihane
