A Birthday Point For Steven Davis

A Birthday Point For Steven Davis

Steven Davis has said he was delighted with the Birthday gift Saints gave him in the Arsenal game, and like others, he thinks we should've taken all three.

Speaking to saintsfc after he turned 28, Davis said.

'After Arsenal's result against Newcastle, we knew they'd be coming into this game full of confidence but I thought we limited them really well in terms of them creating chances. We thoroughly deserved a point at least, and there's a little bit of disappointment that we didn't go on to win the game. I thought we did really well. Every point is going to be valuable come the end of the season. If we keep performing in the way we have been, we'll start to turn some of these draws into wins.'

Since the disappointment of the Sunderland result, the players have certainly responded well, and especially the Arsenal performance should give everybody a lift to keep us out of the bottom three now, and push on during the second half of the campaign.

I'm pleased that he is happy but I find myself feeling disappointed by his input to date. Don't know why exactly other than he was good at Villa(?) before leaving for Rangers and thought he would have had more about him.

Not really arrived in a blaze of glory yet has he. Was expecting a bit more from him, especially with how he was rated when younger...could still be adjusting to the pace again though, but can we give that time to players who aren't at their best at the moment?

It would be nice if we could say yes but sadly we don't have that option. I hope he can kick on but he does have Jack and Morgan in his way at the moment and the improvement once Jack came back says a lot.

Can't disagree there, Cork returning made a huge difference and Morgan hasn't really put a foot wrong either. Could turn out for the best though, their form leaving them undroppable does give Davis longer on the training pitch to find his own form and mentally he'll know when a chance comes his way he has to make the most of it, because we do have others options in Ward-Prowse especially who seems to relish his on pitch time.

I love the thought of what young Jamie will be like in a year or two.

We really do have a good looking crop of youngsters coming through, and if handled properly they could be the core of the team for the next decade or more, if they all develop as we hope. Academy has always seemed to do us proud over the years though, long may it continue.

Davis might have been happy with the point but we should have had the three. Better than expected so guess it will do.

Being fair to him I reckon the point is more than even the most optimistic of players would have expected. Hope reigns eternal I know but to be so close to gaining some revenge for the Emirates, could just be putting on a brave face. At least until reality set in and the team realised how well they had done.
