So end of hugely successful season, 7th spot and most points ever so happy days, but what next.
If arsenal do us a favour - well another favour having paid 16 million for chambers- then we will be in Europe next season which will mean we have to invest in depth.
These are purely my thoughts and at present none backed up with any knowledge though now I will be doing as much fact finding as possible.
Keeper required though this is interesting as do we get someone young which in turn means goodbye to gazza when Forster fit or someone older how has a year or two left at top level.
If Clyne stays which I believe is looking likely then we still need a back up.
Toby HAS to be signed but if we can't get him then another likewise signing. With gados and yos backing up Fonte & toby/new signing then I think we should be good plus we have Stephens and turnball back and McCarthy.
Claise has to be signed looks amazing in midfield and any players leaving ie Morgan to be replaced. Also more game time for reed please as looks good though could do with learning to not dive in so much but again that comes with playing.
Up top Austen looks good value for 10 million and don't forget jay - rod who can also play wide and now Gallagher back fit.
Out wide we have mane tadic Elia who needs to be brought for 3.5 mil as Europe will be tiring for same starting 11 so need strength in depth. With long and jay able to play wide I'm starting to like the look of squad so in short:
Gk: the lad from Norway = 2.4 million ( sorry about lack of name but well google it if I could be bothered!)
Rb: again a lad from Norway and yes again no name! = 2.2 million
Cb: Toby all day long if we can get or like wise player = 6.8 - 10 mil
Cm: claise 9.3 mil
Cf: Charlie 10 mil
Ok 30 mil spent but we have money in back from last year and tv rights for next few years are huge
Then wide player if real quality can be found.
If only being a manager is as easy as this but well I'm excited about next season already come on you saints

i reckon we'll need another high quality winger. Tadic is the only one who stands out from what we already have but i'd like a winger with pace and the ability to cross and shoot would be nice. therefore we could have mane, tadic and new signing in the same starting team

ive heard we are trying to sign Wojciech Szczesny from arsenal. i'm not sure what this means . could be a season long loan . 2 top quality keepers sounds good

Decent post and I can see all of them leaving. Let's be honest I think top 4 went with the Liverpool defeat but I guess we could sneak in as a lot of the others have to play each other while we have slightly easier run in (well after Sunday!)
Personally I think if Toby was going to stay then with would have been done by now so makes me think the player is dragging his heels and as much as he has enjoyed this season might be waiting for a CL team to make a offer. As for Morgan as good as he is I'm getting bored with the same stuff with arsenal spurs etc and well if he wants out let's get decent money and replace him. Clyne is top right back and would be huge shame if he left but again if they don't want to be part of the project then let's get top dollar and replace.
I am personally excited for run in to the summer see where we finish and then add more quality and who knows perhaps next season CL qualification might happen.

Quality signing and was at reduced cost to allow Chelsea to balance there books hence why so late. Add in the fact we didn't sign a centre mid means we had the cash to push through the Bertrand signing, personally very pleased we have signed him up just fingers crossed we get Toby to follow suit and then I'm a very happy man. Good work to Koeman and board.

J-w-p has the ability to be a huge player for the saint not just short, medium but now even long term and yet people are here slagging him, WHY? Do we want the up and coming to stay and improve with us or jump ship. I'm lost for why some people would even start to slag him wow very short sighted people on here.
As with all players improvements can be made but let them make them, whilst doing so mistakes will be made but that's what makes the saints system work we let the players grow so people who are on his back BACK OFF.
He his the saints future and personally I'm a MASSIVE FAN

Ok seems to me that Clyne is playing the waiting game. As a huge saints fan I personally think he should sign straight up for the next ten years but with most people whatever industry we work in if we could double / treble and so on our wages and play for one of the biggest sides in the world then I'm pretty sure we would at least give it more the a second thought!!
My main hope is looking at what we are trying to achieve here and tHe board / management we have in place to make it happen plus the current results of players who left in the summer are getting might make Clyne think twice. Then again money talks. On the plus side 1: he stays = prefect. 2: he leaves and we get loads of money 20mil for a right back and should be replaceable for say 7mil and 13 in bank for squad/team improvement. Win win for me. Let's enjoy it as we know sir Koeman is the main reason where we are

Been a few months since i last had a voice!
Personally I can't see anyone coming in and no one going out - unless jay-rod is more then a month away from fitness, then and only then we might look at a further forward thinking player.
Yes Morgan and victor are out for 3-4 weeks as is Toby. Add to this mane and jos and we are light. But surely if we are going to replace them for the 4 weeks then that would have happened.
Personally I can't see how adding in 3 weeks time as window closing players who won't start will be of any help.
Now is the the time for reed, prowse, isgrove to prove themselves plus perfect time for jack to be back.
What a season let it continue
