Any news on anything today fellas.

Sky reported "Southampton boss Ronald Koeman says there has been no progress in his pursuit of Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster, but the Dutchman is expecting to welcome fresh faces to St Mary's in the near future"
Taider Osvaldo swap is apparently very close (Echo)
I think the celtic players will join, mainly forster, when celtic get knocked out the champions league (currently 4-1 down after 1st leg).
Thats all I got.
Not too sure who the two players are that are expected on the weekend but southampton are good at keeps quite so might be a pleasant suprise!

2.) Probably nothing but negative news a la Ben Smith at the BBC and people still moaning about the parking at the Amex! Tomorrow might be a different matter though.

3.) Hopefully a pleasant surprise and hopefully some reinvestment into the squad in positions we are depleted i. e. CB

4.) The BBC is reporting that an "outline agreement" is in place to sell Schneiderlin to Spurs, with Arsenal also interested

5.) 01 Aug 2014 11:19:16
I managed to park on a piece of grass directly opposite the ground, 5 minutes from kick off!

6.) After recent articles by the BBC about Southampton, I don't really believe in the stuff they're saying anymore.

7.) Osvaldo is set for an Inter medical.

8.) Sadly the Ben Smith BBC articles on players moving this summer have all come to fruition - so appear informed. Other articles which don't have a journalist willing to put their name to them have proved ill-founded gossip.

9.) Will the medical include emotional intelligence? if so he will be back on the plane pronto

Southampton are looking to sign leroy fer of Norwich.
wouldn't be a bad Bit of Business in my opinion.

What are your thoughts gents?.

Lovely guy Rickie Lambert but I still can't understand why Liverpool bought him as the best he'll get is the odd cup game and sit on the bench. I thought he would have wanted to finish his career playing as he hated being left out of games for us. I know this might sound silly but it would be strange if we loaned him back after Xmas, I've seen these things happen before. His ultimate dream was to play for Liverpool but I don't think his dream will come true the way he sees it. All this business started with him I hope there isn't a link.

2.) I live in Norwich and people here are both resigned to the fact that they are probably going to lose Fer, but rate him as a player. Scored at the world cup from the bench and can't be that bad if he was in a strong Van Gaal Netherlands sqaud.

3.) One extra big signing on fee and increased wages.
Plenty of reasons

Looks like Inter have agreed personal terms with Osvaldo.

Any more news on Graziano Pele guys?

Saint Christopher 89

1.) Tbh I don't think pelle would be such a good buy. He's 28 and 10m is a bit too much for him, even though he was good for feyeenoord these past seasons. Would rather have someone like ings for that sort of money.

2.) Apparently he's not training with Feyenoord today, supposedly flying over

3.) Is that you stevo?

4.) We need 2 strikers.

5.) Don think he would be a bad buy but the reson he didn't train was a slight ankle injury but heard benteke was on the short list

6.) ^SaintGibbs. lol but seriously, who knows, if rumours are true then we could end up with both although another site is saying we have hit a sticking point with pelle & may be moving on to other targets

7.) I think we need 3 strikers personally. One to replace Lambert, One to Replace Osvaldo ( who will leave) One to replace rodriguez as he is injured. We can't rely on gallagher, ramirez, mayuka and sharp, the young boy isn't quite ready and the other 3 aren't good enough to get the amount of goals we need to finish top half

8.) Personally I think we should Sign Pele and ings if Possible both would be great assets for our Squad.

9.) 09 Jul 2014 13:55:39
wish people would stop saying ings will be a good signing . he had one good season in the championship. he wouldn't hit 5 goals in the league next season .
not prolific enough , rather sign rhodes or hernandez

10.) @ 10m he would be an awesome target man, worried that saints might start playing long ball to him though.

11.) I would think Ronald Koemans as his manager for the past 3 / 4 years would know best if he is worth it - in Ron we trust.

12.) We need 3 new strikers IMAO. One to replace Lambert. One to replace Osvaldo (as he is leaving) and One to cover Rodriguez as he is Injured. Can't rely on gallagher (yet too young and inexperienced) or mayuka and sharp as they haven't shown that they can cut it.

13.) I'd like to, I know it's a long shot, but I'd like to see Romelu Lukaku at Saints, proven EPL goal scorer, youthful, skillful and bags of potential - I'd rather spend big on him
Although I expect his wage demands might also be big!

14.) Pelle will end up here I expect. hardball is being played from both sides for the price but did his agent not say pelle was keen on the move?? he should just throw his toys outta the pram or even better yet drive himself to staplewood carpark. lukaku will not sign for saints. wages, fees and clubs like athletico want him.

15.) I would hate for Pelle to act as immaturely as some of our players have just in order to join us. Frankly it's disrespectful and we want good characters at Southampton as well as good players.

16.) Whilst I understand the thought about Ings, didn't they say that Rickie Lambert from League 1 to Championship, then from Championship to Premier League?

17.) The Pelle deal seems to have hit a snag regarding the fee and we are currently looking at other options deal not dead but also not close either

18.) Frankly it was a joke.

19.) Life and soul of the party

20.) 09 Jul 2014 18:03:21
I agree SotonBoy, Look how well Jay Rod has done after "One good season in the Championship". If we want English talent Ings is exactly the type of player we should be looking at. Young adaptable and a proven goalscorer in English leagues.

21.) We were after Benteke this time last year and got quite close - until he signed an improved extension at Villa I hear.

22.) It took J-rod a season to settle in though. I'd expect the same from Ings. If we get him we'll still need a couple of good strikers for the season as first team regulars.

23.) J-Rod had 2 decent seasons in the championship would've been 3 if it wasn't for a broken ankle and it took him a season to finf his feet in the prem

24.) Although we are interested in Ings you have to wonder if he would be better staying at burnley so he has a year in the prem before signing in a year. As for pelle I think saints would prefer a younger and better prospect but with the options running are likely to sign him.

Morning all.

Any rumours today?

Is anyone else worried that Forster couldn't handle a polish front two. let alone the likes of Rooney, van persie etc.

Saint Christopher 89

1.) Youtube /watch?v=Z6sSyDNbqq0

nope ;)

2.) Forster, very much the good old English style of keeper, massive and parry's everything.

3.) 07 Aug 2014 11:37:22
Don't understand why everybody is whooping and cheering that Celtic got knocked out last night so that we can sign VVD and Forster. Centre half and goalkeeper conceding 6 goals against poor opposition doesn't sound like a reason to celebrate. Sorry you lost Ed, it was probably the convincing way it happened that annoys you more?

{Ed007's Note - After last week's capitulation I didn't think we could play as bad again, I was wrong - we were actually worse last night!}



31 Jul 2014 15:39:09
A bid of £11m from the St Mary's club has already been rejected, with Sporting reportedly holding out for a fee of £16m.

Com'on Koeman Sign him up!
