    Gbr Out the Ashes: The Rebirth of Southampton

    It's a dark day in the history of Southampton FC. The once brilliant team who used to grace the Premier League seasons on end have filed bankrupcy and with debts of £7.2m have closed the doors to the St. Marys Stadium for the final time. All the players had their contracts terminated and all staff have been relieved of their duties.

    Out of their ashes, FC United of Southampton are formed. Former Saints legend Matt le Tissier set up the club to give the City of Southampton the beautiful game of Football. They will play at the VisitSouthampton.com Arena which holds 25,000 fans after it being built for Southampton to move into for the 2011 season.

    Matt le Tissier has made the decision to employ Alan Pardew as the manager of FC United of Southampton, but with the majority of quality players required to compete in nPower League One and the lack of funds available to the club, Chairman Matt le Tissier has been left with no choice but to scout the country for the best young talent required to compete on all fronts.

    FC.TV - JULY UPDATE

    09/07 - The first month in the history of FC United of Southampton kicked off with the FA granting the club dispensation to play in the nPower League 1. After a squad of 22 talented youngesters were found, the first big moment for the club was the League Cup 1st Round Draw in which The Saints drew Port Vale, away from home.

    12/7 - An international call up also came beckoning to represent Angola U-20's v Ethopia U-20s for Angolan Joao Tchiaka. A fantastic achievement for the club.

    14/7 - The first player to fall victim to the injury table was talented youngest Drake Channon who sustained a broken nose after a training ground collision with fellow player Shaz Ali. Channon will be out for 2 weeks.

    16/7 - Angola U20's 3-0 Ethopia U20's. Joao Tchiaka put in a debut Man of the Match performance for the Angolan youth side who triumphed over the Ethiopians, despite it being his first professional game. He didn't find the scoresheet but achieved a rating of 8.8 on his debut. A sign of things to come?


    17/7 - NEWPORT COUNTY 0-3 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    The first game in the history of FC United of Southampton led to a convincing victory over Newport County. A Darren Russell brace to go along with a Tardinho strike gave The Saints a comfortable win over a very lacklustre Newport.

    XI - Francaise 8, Williamson 7, Bowman 7, Kesina 7, Jackson 7, Reynolds 7, Ali 7, Radebe 7, Lfc 7, Kasikirik 7, Russell 9
    Subs - Sawyer 7, Vasilev 7, Burns 7, Tikki-Man 7, Neville 7, Tardinho 7, Slettebak 7, Brady 7, Hallam 7, Brooks 7
    Not used - Cooper, Ward


    21/7 - CREWE ALEXANDRA 0-4 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    Against a stronger opposition, The Saints came out and proved their worth as they trounced Crewe Alexandra 4-0. A superb hat-trick from striker, King Tikki-Man and a first-minute goal from veteran striker Phill Ewles sealed a very dominant win for The Saints. Tikki-Man has now surely stated his claim for a starting place!

    XI - Francaise 7, Neville 8, Bowman 8, Kesina 7, Jackson 7, Reynolds 8, Ali 7, Radebe 7, Slettebak 7, Tikki-Man 10, Ewles 8
    Subs - Cooper 6, Callaghan 7, Vasilev 7, Burns 7, Lawrence 7, Kasikirik 7, Tardinho 7, Williamson 7, Channon 7

    24/7 - CARDIFF CITY 0-0 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    A respectable draw for FC as they took on Championship title-contenders Cardiff City in the welsh capital and came away with a goal-less after a Man of the Match performance from Angolan U20 International, Joao Tchiaka who kept Cardiff at bay. A positive result for a delightful young side. Dave Jones later complimented Pardew on his style and management of the young side.

    XI - Cooper 7, Williamson 7, Tardinho 7, Tchiaka 8, Kesina 7, Reynolds 7, Radabe 7, Lfc 7, Ali 7, Russell 7, Ewles 6
    Subs - Francaise 7, Neville 7, Vasilev 7, Callaghan 7, Kasikirik 7, Tikki-Man 7, Channon 7, Lawrence 7

    25/7 - Angola U20's manager Laurent Bonadei has decided to call up Joao Tchiaka to the squad again to yet again face the Ethopian U20 side, could this be international burnout? Or good for the African young starlet?

    28/7 - BRISTOL CITY 2-1 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    An out-of-sorts performance from FC led to them being defeated 2-1 on a sunny evening at Ashton Gate. The only consolation came at 2-0 down in the 55th minute when striker Darren Russell scored but FC could not capitalise and find a second.

    XI - Cooper 7, Neville 6, Tardinho 6, Callaghan 6, Jackson 7, Reynolds 7, Channon 7, Ali 7, Slettebak 8, Kasikirik 6, Russell 7
    Subs - Williamson 7, Vasilev 7, Lawrence 6, Kesina 7, Tikki-Man 7
    Not used - Francais, Radebe

    30/7 The African press could not heap enough praise on Angolan prodigy Joao Tchiaka as he achieved another man of the match performance after Angola U20's beat Ethopia U20's in the second leg 2-0. Joao Tchiaka recieved a rating of 9 and speculation is surrounding the team as to whether he will soon make his bow in the senior side.

    So as July ends and we head into August its fair to say it has been a slightly positive start to FCUoS. However, can they take this form into the season and can the first youth international of the squad Joao Tchiaka impress at club level? Find out in the August Update.

A 19th minute header from defender Igor Kesina gave the Reds the lead until 9 minutes later Yeovils Andy Welsh cancelled out the header with a cool finish from the edge of the area. Yeovil were then denied a penalty after Andy Welsh was hauled down however Mike Dean turned down the appeals and play went on. On the 57th minute, striker Darren Russell took the ball past two defenders and cooly converted past the oncoming Yeovil keeper to prove a worthy winner for the reds. Late on, young striker King Tikki-Man was turned down appeals for what seamed a stone-wall penalty. Nevertheless FC move up the 3rd in League One.

Russell got his first after bending an exquisite finish in the 53rd minute past the helpless goalkeeper. Alex Nimely, on loan from Manchester City cancelled out the goal with a delightful finish just 7 minutes later. Russell then put FC ahead in the 76th minute after rounding the goalkeeper and converting the ball home to get his second goal of the day. Russell then was fouled inside the area in the 86th minute and then had no trouble converting the spot-kick. FC stay in 2nd.

    I got a call-up from u21 team, but did not make a single appearance for the club, even as a substitute. Hope the manager give me a chance to show my abilities.

    FC.TV – SEPTEMBER UPDATE

    1/9 – After a great start to the domestic campaign, FC were rewarded after Darren Russell picked up the League One Player of the Month award for August after scoring an incredible 6 goals in just 4 games. Russell also came 3rd in the Goal of the Month award for his solo effort against Yeovil. Also manager, Alan Pardew won the Manager of the Month award. Two great successes for the club.

    1/9 - JPT South R1 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON 3-1 ALDERSHOT TOWN


    After a goalless first half it was Aldershot who took a shock lead through Tim Sills to send their travelling fans into disbelief. However 3 goals in 9 minutes including a double from King-Tikki Man and a fine effort from Hete Slettebak sealed the tie for FC as they headed into the next round. Another win for The Saints.

    XI - Francaise 7, Williamson 7, Tardinho 5, Kesina 7, Jackson 7 (c), Reynolds 7 (Lawrence 7) Channon 7, Ali 7 (Tciaka 7) Slettebak 8, Tikki-Man 9, Ewles 7 (Kasikirik 7)
    Subs not used - Cooper, Callaghan

    2/9 - INTERNATIONAL WATCH


    England U19's 3-0 Bulgaria U19's

    Shaz Ali started and managed to find the back of the net with a lovely strike achieving a match rating of 9.
    Parry Neville was phenomemal at right-back sealing a very respectable rating of 9.
    Jamie Reynolds had a fairly average game at right midfield after achieving a match rating of 7.
    King Tikki-Man came off the bench with 10 minutes to go and managed to find the back of the net to achieve a rating of 8.

    Belgium U19's 1-1 Germany U19's

    Hete Slettebak put in a good performace with a match rating of 7 against a very highly rated German side, however Slettebak took a slight knock and came off after 55 minutes.

    Lithuania U19's 0-5 Scotland U19's

    Jim Bowman recieved a strangely low match rating of 7 despite helping Scotland trounce Lithuania. He was booked and subbed off in the 77th minute.
    Tardinho came off the bench for the final 4 minutes and achieved a 7 rating.

    Iceland U19's 2-1 Norway U19's

    Bjorgvin Radebe put in a good shift for Iceland achieving an 8 rating and also claiming an assist.

    Latvia U19's 0-1 Croatia U19's

    Igor Kesina put in an average shift with a rating of 7 before being subbed off in the 52nd minute.

    Vanatu U21's 1-1 Papua New Guinea U21's

    Drake Channon captained the U21 side to a poor draw against lowly Vanatu. The 15 year-old prodigy was delighted to recieve the armband and responded with a team-best rating of 8.

    Ecuador U20's 5-0 Trinidad and Tobago U20's

    Andrew Jackson captained the Trinidad side to a trouncing by Ecuador but still managed to pull out of the game with a 7 rating. He was delighted to captain the side.

    England U21's 2-0 Bulgaria U21's

    Matthew Cooper started in between the stick's for England despite being the number 2 at The Saints. He achieved a healthy rating of 8 and surely this will help him press on in his quest to challenge Monsieur Francaise's position.

    Danny Callaghan started for England U21's despite failing to cement down a first team place at FC. He put in a solid performance with a rating of 7 before coming off with 10 minutes to go.

    Darren Russell was not selected in the squad.

    Valentin Vasilev put in an OK performance for Bulgaria and came off with an in no way degrading 7.

    Other news - FC have been drawn at home to Yeovil in the JPT South 2nd Round.



    Angola 2-0 Uganda

    Joao Tchiaka became the first FC player to make his international debut with a commanding performace at centre midfield for Angola as they defeated Uganda in their African Cup of Nations qualifier. He finished with a rating of 8 and declared himself 'in dreamland' after making his international bow.

    Spain Under 21's 0-2 Turkey U21's

    Yakup Kasikirik scored in his first competiitive start in a very shock result as Turkey Under 21's triumphed over Spain. Kasikirik scored a lovely goal and achieved an 8 rating.


    International Round Up - Game 2



    Igor Kesina played well as Croatia U19's defeated Greece Under 19's gaining a 8 rating before being substituted.

    Hete Slettebak was involved in a goal-less stalemate between Belgium U19's and Turkey U19's achieving a 7 rating.

    Bjorgvin Radebe put in a good performance for Iceland U19's as they were defeated 1-0 by Denmark U19's. Radebe achieved a 7 rating.

    Jamie Reynolds
    and King Tikki-Man both scored as England U19's trounced Switzerland U19's 3-0. Tikki-Man getting his 2nd goal in as many games. Parry Neville and Shaz Ali also started for England as 4 FC players appeared for the youth side.

    Jim Bowman and Tardinho were the centre back partnership as Scotland U19's defeated Liechenstein U19's 4-1. Tardinho was carried off injured and reports later confirmed he had pulled his hamstring and will be out for 3-4 weeks.

    10/9 - BACK TO DOMESTIC MATTERS

    11/9 - L1 - MK DONS 4-0 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    FC's unbeaten record came to a very sour end as they were well beaten by the MK Dons. Goals from Lewis Guy, Angelo Balanta and Sam Baldock aswell as a Jim Bowman own goal led to a thrashing in Milton Keynes. Can FC pick themselves up from this?

    XI: Francaise 6, Williamson 5, Bowman (c) 6, Kesina 6, Jackson 5, Reynolds 6 (Vasilev 6), Channon 6, Ali 7 (Ewles 6), Lfc 7 (Slettebak 7), Russell 7, Tikki-Man 6
    Subs not used: Cooper, Tchiaka, Lawrence, Kasikirik

    15/9 - L1 - FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON 5-0 HARTLEPOOL UNITED


    The Saints got their promotion trail back on track by thumping 5 past a hapless Hartlepool side with a double from club captain and Angolan international Joao Tchiaka aswell as individual strikes from Aidan Lfc, Darren Russell, and Jim Bowman. The result leaves FC 4 points behind leaders Bristol Rovers with a game in hand. Interesting to see that all 5 goals scored today were headers. Some kind of record?

    XI - Francaise 7, Williamson 8, Tchiaka (c) 9, Bowman 9, Jackson 9, Reynolds 8 (Lawrence 8), Channon 7, Ali 7, Lfc 9 (Slettebak 7), Russell 8, Ewles 7 (Tikki-Man 7)
    Subs not used - Cooper, Callaghan, Kesina, Kasikirik

    15/9 - Hete Slettebak made it clear to manager Alan Pardew that he is having problems settling into the area. Pardew told Slettebak to forget it and get on with his game, in which Hete apologised and deemed himself as being 'out of line'

    18/9 - L1 - FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON 1-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH


    A 44th minute penalty from Darren Russell could not prevent FC from conceding an 88th minute Marc Pugh equaliser as The Saints slipped to a home draw infront of a sell out visitsouthampton.com Arena. Another slip up for FC, but still performing well in League One.

    XI - Francase 7, Neville 8, Bowman 7, Kesina 7 (Lawrence 7), Jackson 7, Reynolds 7 (Slettebak 6), Tchiaka (c) 7, Ali 7, Lfc 7, Russell 7, Ewles 7 (Tikki-Man 7)
    Subs not used - Cooper, Sawyer, Callaghan, Williamson

    21/9 - League Cup 3rd Round - SWANSEA 1-2 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    FC celebrated possibly their greatest result so far after killing off another Championship side in the League Cup. FC went ahead through a King Tikki-Man strike after 28 minutes, Darren Russell then doubled the lead from the penalty spot in the 67th minute. A Luke Moore strike was the only consolation for the Swans who crash out. Pardew declared himself ecstatic over the result.

    XI - Francaise 7, Williamson 7, Tchiaka (c) 8, Callaghan 7, Jackson 7, Vasilev 7, Radebe 7 (Bowman 6), Channon 7, Slettebak 7 (Lfc 7), Russell 7, Tikki-Man 8 (Ewles 6)
    Subs not used: Cooper Kesina Lawrence Kasikirik

    25/9 - FC will take on Premier League side Birmingham City in the League Cup 4th Round on the 27th October 2010, The game will be played at St. Andrews and will be FC's biggest game in their short history.


    25/9 - L1 - WALSALL 0-2 FC UNITED OF SOUTHAMPTON


    FC proved they are a side who can clinically take their chances as they managed to score 2 out of the 4 shots on target to seal the points against Walsall. Goals coming from in-form striker King Tikki-Man aswell as a goal from defender Igor Kesina. Surely Tikki-Man is staking a claim to start after making it 6 goals in 5 starts!.

    XI: Francaise 8, Williamson 8, Bowman (c) 8, Kesina 8, Jackson 7, Reynolds 7 (Callaghan 7), Radebe 7 (Lawrence 7), Ali 7, Lfc 7 (Vasilev), Tikki-Man 8, Ewles 7
    Subs not used - Cooper Kasikirik Sawyer Neville.

    At the end of the month, FC lay 2nd in League One, just a point behind leaders Peterborough.

    FC - TOP SCORERS
    Darren Russell - 10 Goals (11 Starts)
    King Tikki-Man - 6 Goals (5 Starts, 7 Subs)
    Igor Kesina - 2 Goals (6 Starts, 1 Sub)

    FC - TOP PERFORMERS
    Darren Russell - 7.65
    Aidan Lfc - 7.34
    Jim Bowman - 7.26

    FC - TOP ASSISTS
    Aidan Lfc - 6 Assists (9 Starts, 1 Sub)
    Phill Ewles - 5 Assists (10 Starts, 2 Subs)
    Ed Lawrence - 3 Assists (0 Starts, 7 Subs)

    With the month finishing the fans reflected on the month and at the fan's trust meeting they voted in favour of Aidan Lfc as their player of the month! With 2 goals and 4 assists in the last 5 games! Its hard to disagree!

    FC.TV will be back next month.

    Capped twice for Turkey u21 and scored a goal for them against great Spain, yet my manager played me just in one match, bringing me as a substitute. I want a regular first team football

    Too much time in midfield for Tchiaka, much better as a 6'8 Centre Back =P
