View Full Version : Are We Fat?

Half interesting post on the Southampton Board about our players being overweight...

Heard talk on the radio today theorising on either Vokes or Ings joining us. Whilst both scored today, they did so against a very poor central defensive partnership. Also, both looked to be overweight, in the same way SRL was when he joined us. In fact, most of Burnley's team looked overweight, but perhaps that's just a Championship thing?

For me, I didn't see enough to warrant giving either of them a chance and think we should be concentrating on targeting a proven goal scorer used to top flight football.

'A championship thing' Sounds like they've never been in the championship, funny how quickly people forget, the tw@ts.

If Ings is fat I must be just about OK then? Has anyone seen Parkin at Fleetwood lately? He makes Treacy look like Twiggy. The arrogance of the Premier League football fan..eh?

Senior moment from Lotty again. XD

Earlier on this season in one of our local hostelries Tim Vokes was saying how Sam had told him that he'd never been fitter at that stage of the season before.In fact he said he believed the whole squad was so fit they could run for 100 minutes no problem!

Lotty1, yesterday.

...I suppose Vokes and Long are 'big boned' sorts, and Heaton hardly has David James' physique but I think that maybe they say Treacy and thought that he was representative.

Or maybe its just that we don't wear figure hugging shirts.

Yep , have to admit it was a senior moment lol . Apologies for that .:O :?

I'm sure it has something to do with the white kit, I thought that our players looked a bit on the tubby side yesterday.

Vokes Long Treacy all look big its whether they're effective which counts.

I've seen pictures of Austin recently and he looks slimmer then when he was with us.

We may be a team of fat lads , but we came bloody close to doing over Southampton B)

A on the same forum (different posters, presumably) there were several people saying Southampton need to rest players because they're tired. Clearly a bit of overweight does no harm!

Well - I did think Treacy looked a bit overweight, and slow, yesterday. None of the others did.
Not a big deal however. And they do seem a dim lot on the Southampton board. before the game, there were posts worrying about their precious players getting a rough time from mere Championship mortals. I guess Lallana isn't the only Southampton person who needs to "get a """"ing hold of themselves" (c. Edison)
