Hi Eds, any truth that Vietto has been made available by Athletico? I know Saints were interested earlier in the transfer window and could be a great addition. Do you see us pulling this off at all?

Thanks!

Hi Edds, Is there any truth in the rumours we are looking to sign Semedo from Lisbon? I can't see us ever paying his release clause reported as near 40m Euros. Looks like a good young centre back that needs to gain experience to progress.

Onlyme444

{Ed002's Note - There is interest but his "release clause" is irrelevant.}


1.) 31 May 2017 20:01:24
Thanks Ed, nice to see we're interested in players rather than just selling!

CP has just said he expects a signing this week and Fonte to stay! I hope both are true and it's another centre back as we are short there.

Onlyme444

1.) 07 Aug 2016 19:53:37
Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports has discredited this, saying CP was misquoted. The article has now been removed as well.


2.) 07 Aug 2016 23:44:44
Rumours could be Gabbiadini from Napoli.


3.) 08 Aug 2016 15:41:04
Thanks Luke, just read CP confirm he wants Fonte to stay. We do need to bring in a few more players. CB cover, quick winger and a goal scorer. I'm worried we're going to have a long season and with a couple injuries, we look light!


4.) 08 Aug 2016 18:34:10
Apparently Saints have initiated an approach to Napoli for Gabbiadini - spot on dsj20v. Also Claude has stated that The club have no intention of selling Fonte. Gabbiadini is 24yrs or and 6ft 1in and main position is centre forward.

Claude is very interested and will want to fast track any potential contract. Looks pretty good - what do other people think.


5.) 08 Aug 2016 19:46:20
Latest rumours coming out of Italy is that Southampton are in talks with the player and Napoli about a transfer deal. Gabbiadini would be a very promising replacement for Pelle. Would be great if this happens - cross fingers. COYR's.


6.) 08 Aug 2016 20:55:34
Think gabiadini would be a good signing going on reports, but is les willing to splash the cash, doughtful.

8.) 08 Aug 2016 22:23:41
Manolo gabbiadini would be a good signing imo can at target man, central or wider if needed and only 24 just hope he can handle the rigour of the premier league.


 

 

03 Aug 2016 11:36:49
Just read that we are in for defour - anyone know about him? Seems an attacking midfielder but nothing special. Edds, is there any truth?

Onlyme444

{Ed001's Note - Stephen Defour? I will have to ask around, but I have not heard of any interest from Saints.}


1.) 03 Aug 2016 13:52:38
yeah Stephen Defour, apparently he wants out and was booed by his own fans - not great to hear!


2.) 03 Aug 2016 15:01:28
Not because he's a bad player but because the fans didn't like the fact he played for there rivals.


 

 

02 Aug 2016 07:58:52
I've just been told we also signed Pied on a two year contract - Anyone know if there is any truth on this?

Onlyme444

1.) 02 Aug 2016 08:09:44
Anyone know if these rumours on fonte have any truth in them . I have seen a possible 9 million pound bid from Koeman . And utd have interest . I hope our caplain has seen the grass is not always greener on the other side if true.


2.) 02 Aug 2016 08:27:17
I was told we are offering Fonta a pay rise to bring him in line with the top paid players at the club. I hope this is true as at 32, you could understand if he wanted to move for a final pay day but hope Saints will offer this to him. In my eyes, he's the best centre back we have and will help develop those around him.


3.) 02 Aug 2016 12:32:10
Yeh apparently Pied signed a two year contract with McCarthy from Palace also on a two year deal.


4.) 02 Aug 2016 13:15:39
I thought McCarthy signed a 3 year deal?

Fonte having a medical at West Ham today. I don't see this as a step forward for him but also don't see us replacing him to the summer. It's going to be painful if we can't score and start to concede

Onlyme444

1.) 20 Jan 2017 17:33:12
His pay slip and contract will be a step up tho


2.) 20 Jan 2017 21:41:09
I don't think so, he had 18 months left on his current contract and Saints were prepared to extend that by 1 extra year making that 2.5 years. He has just signed a 2.5 year contract with Wet Spam. His salary at Saints was £65000 a week, the highest paid player in Saints history until we signed VVD, Saints offered to increase that to £70000 a week in the summer but Fonte wanted more and an increase to the contract length of two years giving him another 4 years at Saints and according to the reports he has signed a 2.5 year contact on £65000 a week so he is in fact worse off going to Wet Spam and add to that he put in a transfer request so there goes his signing on fee!


3.) 21 Jan 2017 07:41:17
Fonte called you and told you that himself I suppose. So you think fonte has gone through all of this for exactly the same deal as he was on


 

 

30 Aug 2016 08:49:40
hearing Camacho could be off to West Brom. Having seen him play, I think he would be great for us as a midfield enforcer as I think we look weak here. I still feel we need 3 players, CB, DM and ST just to compete this season but can't see it happening.

Onlyme444

1.) 30 Aug 2016 10:39:10
spot on Onlyme444.


2.) 30 Aug 2016 10:52:07
Midfield is overloaded and I think jay rod will stay after Saturday's performance . Hopefully a CB in for cover, mangala on loan with city paying his wages won't be a bad deal.


3.) 30 Aug 2016 11:53:24
Good thing about loans. We can send him back if he gets injured.


4.) 30 Aug 2016 16:18:05
Agree we have many CM's but quality CDM's?
Still need a powerful/ commanding CDM in my opinion

Agree, need cover for CD, better than what we have as current back up

finishing: The difficulty with relying on the forward players we currently have is that none are likely to get 15 goals this season - we've lost players who scored goals last season and have yet to replace these, this is plain to see.


 

 

24 Aug 2016 09:21:32
Hi Edds, any interest in Southampton in Phil Jones? I know he has had a few injuries but I thik he would be a great addition as can play CB, DM or RB which helps with Europe.

I'm sure there is a lot going on behind the scenes but are we really going to loan out players wothout a replacement already here at this stage? Seems strange to me, expecially as Les confirmed CP can use the Mane money to bring in new players.

Onlyme444

{Ed002's Note - No. Asking about random players is pretty much always going to get the same response.}


1.) 25 Aug 2016 07:50:21
I'm with you on this Onlyme44. I think Phil Jones would be a great addition to our squad. He is still relatively young and with a little more discipline could also be a regular starter at CB.


2.) 25 Aug 2016 08:31:50
Thanks Ed's and appreciate what your saying. I only asked as had read Phil Jones is not needed at Man U and wondered if we had spoken to his agent or the club.

Read this morning that Callum Chambers is allowed to leave on Loan as well - not sure if this is true as Arsenal are so light in defence but would be a great cover signing and help our home grown status. Plus with Europa, he would get game time.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that there are plenty of players for sale and Southampton are focussed on bringing in the ones they want and are not stumbling around talking about players they have no interest in whatsoever.}


 

 

12 Aug 2016 10:19:28
Tadic has signed a new 4 year contract - great news as the main players are on long contracts!

Onlyme444

1.) 12 Aug 2016 13:43:19
Good news, quality player! Scores goals and makes assists!


 

 

30 Jul 2016 09:58:29
Gaza gone out on loan meaning we must of signed another keeper. Hope it is McCarthy as he's a strong back up and will push Forster. I think we are lacking some pace in attack other than Redders and hope they sort this with a good wife man.

Onlyme444

1.) 30 Jul 2016 13:45:35
I mean wide man, not John Terry!


2.) 30 Jul 2016 16:33:54
Good luck to Gaza he'll get much more game time. Hopefully he will benefit and come back with confidence. By the way we just won our 3rd friendly against FC Groningen 1-0 who had a man sent off. Charlie Austin scored with a header late in the game.

Thank you for this Eds.
I am sorry to ask but there are two players i've wondered about but you haven't mentioned. Dendonker (spelt wrong I think), Man City player and Petagna. Could you work your magic and confirm if there is any real interest in either of these players please?

Onlyme444

{Ed002's Note - (a) Leander Dendoncker - well the player is concerned about playing time which has made him nervous about a move to Atletico Madrid or Manchester United if Mourinho continues his interest from his days at Chelsea. Hodgson was keen to have him work with Luka Milivojevic but that has waned. Allardyce had him watched and discussions were held with Anderlecht when meeting over Henry Onyekuru's loan last season – but I expect those ideas left with Allardyce. Valencia interest went when they signed Uros Racic, and Wolfsburg were interested when they were worried Riechedly Bazoer may go, but that interest has gone. Lyon, Real Betis and Sevilla have an interest still. I am not aware of Southampton interest. (b) I can't think of anyone you might be referring to except Jason Denayer. I agree he would be a good option but he is not a target at this time - although Claude Puel was very keen when he was manager in 2016. (c) Assuming you mean Andrea Petagna of Atalanta, it would be a strange choice. Petagna has the same trait as many of the strikers Southampton already have on the books - he can't score goals. It would be an astonishing choice and I don't know of any Southampton interest - although I will say that representatives of Atalanta is in England this week and met with Chelsea yesterday (Wednesday). They have already signed 8 players and have a further 57 return from loan. As of yesterday they had sold three and loaned or released six or seven others. They would be more than happy to offload Andrea Petagna to Southampton.}

Didn't West Ham try and sign him before and something went wrong? I can't recall if it was a medical or work permit.

I think they will be concerned about CB position but aren't going to air that publicly. Any club we try and get a player from will demand a higher fee. It's not just CB we need thought, we need a new creative player and Vietto could be a great addition to cover that space or play of the striker.

I just read a quote from him saying he wants to look around and see where he can play week in week out and stay in the premier league. He's not worth £20m but is VD worth £70m? The market is crazy and prices are inflated when clubs don't want to sell. We might have to pay more to get what we need.

I don't disagree with anything you are saying but I think we need a quality centre back. Yoshida and Stephens wouldn't be starters in any other team and with them playing we have to sit deeper! I think VVD will go but I want it done so we know and can move on. We then need 2 centre backs who can play in an attacking team. I know we have 5 centre backs on the team sheet but 4 of them are not up to this level (2 are young and will grow) . We seem to be the only team not strengthening, the sale of the club is in limbo and I don't see us progressing on from last year! So that said, I would like a CB, AM and pacey winger as I feel we lack it and struggle to get behind teams (except Long who needs to many chances to score) .

I have been reading this as well this morning and can see the bid lodged. At the moment, there is no confirmation the bid has been accepted and the official quote is pending bid (I sadly analyse stock for a living) . I won't be surprised if this does go through as its been an option to buy a stake for over a year. They won't have a majority share but could be forced to make a formal buy out. Personally, I am not happy about this as they are more about profit than growth and will see as as a selling club! when we need stability

It seems that way Dorset. I think we are going to be very light this season and any injuries will really hurt with our lack of depth.

Looking through Newsnow, sky, bbc, HITC etc - we're not in the running for anyone now! I think its going to be a frustrating day!

Anyone know what's happened to Gardos? Someone posted a few weeks ago he was still injured but nothing official released.

Papers are saying Chambers is available on loan even though Arsenal are light on cover. I'd take him on loan but would like us to bring in a Fonte replacement for the long term. I'd worry about Sakho's attitude and upsetting the squad - plus he worry's me in possession. He might have good passing stat's but never looks comfortable on the ball.
