There are rumours in the German press that Southampton are 1 of a number of Premier League clubs interested in Sandro Wagner of Darmstadt. He is a 6ft 4in striker, 28 years old who has scored 14 goals in the Bundesligue this season, the second highest German scorer behind Thomas Müller. The fee could be around €3million.

I hope not. We have a wealth of attacking options. Would only be interested in this as a transfer of Pelle does go.

Question to the Eds

If Man U win the Europa Cup, thus qualifying for the Champions League, and finish 5th in the Premier; would that open an opportunity for Saints to qualify for Europ next season by finishing 8th?

That's a shame, I thought that was the case! How does it work then ed?

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would you expect Southampton get a place in Europe for finishing eighth?}


2.) 07 May 2017 17:05:50
Why not Eds? If utd finish fifth they'll get Champions League meaning that spot will go to the team that finish 6th. They also won the league cup meaning that a place will go to 7th place and it's Arsenal/ Chelsea in the FA cup final, so surely if Chelsea win that it'll go to the team at eighth (won't be us)

{Ed002's Note - Of course not - to play in Europe you need to qualify. If Manchester United finish 5th and win the Europa League there will be 5 teams in the Europa Leage and two in the Europa League. They don't give places to sides that don't qualify.}


3.) 08 May 2017 13:21:49
ED002 - I think the point was that in past seasons, if a team qualify, who have already qualified via a cup, then usually the place goes to league finishes. I didn't think that 8th would qualify regardless, but I think this is why people may think it will.

{Ed002's Note - There are still only the seven places available.}

Of course MP is not worried about being sacked; he has a contract for 3 years: if the board sack him then he can safely sit on his arse for 27 (? ) months receiving his pay check and we have to bring in a more expensive replacement. I can go back to the early 70's when Saints appointed a certain Lawrie McMenemy to replace Ted Bates, LM received the same abuse, same demands for his sacking - Yes, we did go down - unluckily on an FA rule change made the previous season. But look where he took us in the next 10 years. I firmly believe that the problems now are leftovers from the previous season and were inevitable whoever replaced Puel.

Even if Saints had employed Pep we would have been in the same situation unless we went out and spent 200million+.

The blame, if any, should remain fairly and squarely with the commercial management and the board.

Time to call in Saddam Magath as fitness coach.

That's a shame, just read that he has signed a contract with Beijing, hopefully Saints will move a bit quicker if they are serious about Tuchel.

I suggested Roger Schmidt some time back but got the old unbelievable ratings. He is available having parted with Bayer Leverkusen earlier this year. He is a great coach and specializes in the high pressing game that we came to enjoy under Poch.

I am not missing anything, what is needed is a real shock to the system in a very short space of time and that is something that can only be achieved by someone like Magath or even Pearson. Magath has a proven record in this situation and would probably immediately be available at the right deal. Unfortunately, immediately means 6 weeks time when it comes to dealings of the management at Saints.

Magath would be a real threat to Les Reed's position as well.

Leave MP in place as he has a 3 year contract that has probably 27 months to run. OK, putting him on gardening leave may be an option, but someone like Magath is needed and I believe available. He will not be popular with the players and certainly knock some heads together. Life would not be pleasant in training for the over the next couple of weeks but he would make them earn their money.

Leave MP in place till the end of the season but bring in a specific fitness and motivation trainer like Felix 'Saddam' Magath or Nigel Pearson to improve a few attitudes: A lot can be achieved in 3 weeks before the next game. Pearson worked wonders at Leicester in the last games of the season to stave off relegation and would have probably been the coach that won the Premiership the following year if it wasn't for the Bangkok incident!

Whatever the situation we will probably play brinksmanship and end up losing out to other clubs. Looks like Sandro Wagner is leaving Hoffenheim for Bayern as soon as the window opens; how about the board being bold for once and making a move on him. We will have to pay about 20million more than we would have when we were offered him 18 months ago. He's a perfect replacement for Pelle. While we're at it how about a move on Jannick Vestergaard as a solid replacement for Van Dijk.
