"Ashley has been ill, which is not good on top of the ankle injury," said the Swansea manager. "He wants to be fit — he wants to play and he wants to be 100 per cent. "But for the last couple of weeks or more he hasn’t trained at 100 per cent because of his ankle, and he is the big question mark for us ahead of Reading." Swansea will assess Williams in the lead-up to the weekend, with club skipper Garry Monk in line for a possible recall should he not make it.Swansea City concerned about Ashley Williams' fitness | This is South Wales
"I think if you look at the squad - Gaston [Ramirez] came on and looked the part and he's only going to get better once he starts to learn English.Just a reminder of how difficult it can be to transfer into a league and have an immediate impact. You're moving countries, cultures... everything. And as Ramirez only had one training session with Southampton after the international break... well, he's my early midfield pick for this week, at home to Aston Villa. h/t Fox says Southampton must recover self-belief

Pretty amazing. Can he reach 100 in a year?: "59 goals in 2012 was the tally Lionel Messi reached on Friday, meaning that he has already equalled his 2011 haul – in 25 fewer matches. The Barcelona star needed 70 appearances for club and country to reach this total last year, whereas it has taken him just 45 this time, making for an average of 1.3 goals per game. Messi now needs just one more goal to emulate his best-ever performance in a calendar year: 60 goals over the course of 2010. The 25-year-old would have dearly loved to reach that landmark in Peru last night, but he failed to score for the first time in seven appearances for Argentina. He had gone into the match having scored ten times in his previous six outings, becoming the first Albiceleste star since Hernan Crespo 11 years before to find the net in six successive internationals."FIFA.com
