Southampton will be without striker James Beattie for six weeks after it was confirmed the striker broke his toe in Saturday's goalless draw with Manchester City.

It is just the news head coach Steve Wigley did not need as he searches not only for a first win in charge but a way to remain in his job beyond Christmas.

Wigley does not have the required UEFA Pro Licence and unless Southampton can secure an extension he will have to hand over the reins in mid-December.

And amid this mess, Southampton lie third from bottom of the Barclays Premiership having garnered just a single point in six games since Wigley replaced Paul Sturrock.

Wigley had spoken of Southampton being due a change of luck and in avoiding defeat on Saturday they did receive a welcome slice of good fortune - only to discover that Beattie will be sidelined for a month and a half with a displaced fracture of the little toe on his left foot.

Anyone else consider Beattie to be overrated?

He keeps talking about his England chances, what England chance?
Super Rooney, Defoe, Owen, even Vas man and Heskey must come before him.

How could I forget my favourite! Shame on me!

He goals per game ratio isn't even that impressive, I wouldn't pick him at international level.

When he did actually play for England he was toilet, he hasn't improved at Southampton so why should he get in now...

I don't think he will be that great at another club, plus who is left to come in for him that would be a step up from the Saints?

No one really, the clubs that was interested have all bought.. Spurs showed the most interest and they have Keane, Kanoute and Defoe now...

Hrmm it won't be much of a change if he goes to Charlton.

They way he see's it is he is a better player and wants a better club. He needs to wake up and thank Southampton for paying his wages.

It reminds me of Le Tiss in a way. He just never made it on the big stage.

I think Le tiss was a much better player though....

looks like beattie is almost back


"He's got a calf strain," explained Redknapp to Sky Sports.

"He won't be far away from playing at the weekend. He's important for us.

"We don't want to rush him back. It's important he's playing."
