Celtic sign Ntcham. Could this mean Armstrong is leaving?




04 Aug 2016 17:24:55
Just read in the London Evening Standard that we've had a £17m bid for Slimani turned down. The player wants to supposedly leave to join us, but Sporting want nearer £25m.
Not sure how true this is?


1.) 04 Aug 2016 18:39:44
He looks good - any truth in this EDS?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of such a low bid being made.}

2.) 04 Aug 2016 20:06:43
I can't see this happening. Why would we break the bank for a 28 year old and not go for Berahino. Lazy journalism at its best me thinks!

3.) 04 Aug 2016 20:23:47
Such a low? The bid is made but higher then, Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I am not awareb of any bid from Southampton and at that price I doubt if there would even be a resposne.}

If there is any truth in this rumour then I would say go for it. 28 years old is still young enough to give you about 2 to 3 good seasons and if he is as prolific a scorer as it seems he is why not . Pelle left not far short of his 31st birthday for a profit . He might be the sort of player who could get us into the CL ( long shot I agree ) but scoring goals is what this game is all about and what we have at the moment is a set of forwards that are not renowned as lethal finishers . We can afford it so why not. Worth a go.

An Islam Slimani bid would make him the fourth Sporting CP player we have been linked to in the rumour stakes. Following Rúben Semedo, William Carvalho and Adrien Silva .
Why not go for Carlos Mané as well 22yr old, we don't have to print/ buy new shirts and sell for £30m in 2 years.

7.) 05 Aug 2016 08:35:57
Don't understand why everyone is raving about Berahino. A player that throws his toys out the pram when he doesn't have it his own way. A player that has shown no loyalty to West Brom. Sure he's a good finisher but if he did move here, a bigger club would move for him and that would be it.

8.) 05 Aug 2016 09:06:51
Seeing on Newsnow that Slimani has handed in a transfer request. Once again, don't know how true this is?

9.) 05 Aug 2016 12:52:33
I don't know or read any bid put in for Slimani. Only thing I've read is that he had put a transfer request in and £20 mill was mentioned. Everton are sniffing about as well. 6ft 2 in striker maybe 28yrs old but plenty of goals in him. Suspect that Saints wouldn't consider paying this sort of money .

Shame, a hell of a player to add to the striker department. Berahino is much younger but at 5ft 8in not a target man. Plenty of talent but temperamental . If someone gets hold of him and steers him in the right direction he could turn out to be a very good buy. Would we take the chance?

10.) 05 Aug 2016 22:25:49
Slimani played in the Sporting friendly against Nice tonight. Looks like the transfer request was not true. Unless they're playing him to basically say "you're not going anywhere".

Liverpool spending £60m on the Southampton CB, who Southampton bought to replace the CB Liverpool bought for £20m. Makes sense!


1.) 05 Jun 2017 18:51:03
Ok make them pay. Saints fans are sick of Liverpool taking our best players.

Make them pay far more than 60 million. VVD is on a long term contract here so let's force them up even higher.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 20:48:24
Should be £70 mil minimum. Make them pay.



24 Dec 2016 08:33:02
On the striker front, I'm still gutted we didn't go for Defoe before he went state side. Always been a proven goalscorer.


1.) 24 Dec 2016 10:14:40
Merry Christmas dagger but I'll have to disagree defoe is only an impact sub not really someone you could play in a starting 11.

2.) 24 Dec 2016 21:49:33
And a skate at that.



05 Aug 2016 10:38:21
Anyone else think Marcus Barnes will get a crack at first team football this season? Banging in the goals at lower levels, and now with this U23's format, he'll be playing against bigger and stronger players. I can see maybe a little run in certain cup games.
What's your opinion on him?


1.) 05 Aug 2016 10:58:57
one hat trick don't make you good enough for 1st team .
hes just come back from a long injury set back .
maybe in a year or 2 he will get a chance.

2.) 05 Aug 2016 11:24:58
If there are any academy players that can make the step up this season I think one of the most definite candidates so far is sam mcqueen. I'm hoping hesketh would follow suit this season as well having made his first team start last season.



01 Aug 2016 23:44:28
A bit disappointed with the Pied signing to be honest.




22 Jul 2016 00:13:47
Really hope Charlie has an injury free season. I can see him being the in-house replacement for Pelle. Fingers crossed?


1.) 22 Jul 2016 06:36:38
Agree we need cover at CB/ RB does anyone know what's happening about Gardos is he travelling to holland.

2.) 22 Jul 2016 07:30:22
I've said it for a while that Phil Jones would be a good signing. Still the unfinished article but can play in both positions or CDM.

3.) 22 Jul 2016 10:17:53
He's very error prone though.

4.) 22 Jul 2016 11:34:58
Absolutely no way. Phil Jones is shocking, not even good enough for the Championship. He’s a liability wherever he plays. Please God no.

5.) 23 Jul 2016 01:04:46
Jones obviously isn't that bad. would cover a lot of positions too, would rather get Chambers back on loan though.

I think this VVD thing could lead to a situation. M Pel was told by the club as part of his incoming that the big players won't be sold. If VVD goes, how do you think that would leave the relationship between manager and club? Straight away having the carpet pulled from under his feet.

We should still stand strong. Just because he's handed in a transfer request doesn't mean he will go. A number of top class players have tried and the club's refused to accept.
And Liverpool still can't make a bid until we accept and allow him to talk to clubs. But another clubs can bid.
If you do sell, obviously anyone other than them.

Hasn't he said recently on his return after the summer. I'm home. That's the only vocal I've heard from him.

If we want this type of player I don't understand why we didn't get Murphy now of Newcastle. Much better player all round!

Once again, well done.
One thing I don't like is the talk of investment banks and property development companies. Just seem to think they are only in it for the money.
Lots just hope the third one is a mega rich Arab sugar daddy that supports the saints. I can only hope.

Why would KL sell a major share in the club to someone with no money to inject? Wasn't the whole point of this to take the club to the next level? Selling to buy is a load of crap in my opinion.

Would like to see a bit more pace up front, not including the wingers.

Someone has changed his Wikipedia page to show current club as Southampton. Lol
Hopefully it's an insider jumping the gun! Haha.

Liverpool fans saying VVD is not good enough to play for them, but Lovren was? Lol.

Man U will never learn. Didn't they also let Pique go back to Barcelona on the cheap?
