any legs on the Balotelli rumours?

1.) 30 Dec 2017 23:40:49
I didn't know there were any? . I've only just got jack sparrow out of my system!

2.) 31 Dec 2017 06:56:12
Not sure how true they are but apparently he followed Southampton on Twitter/ instagram and posted some cryptic stuff alluding to saints

That and some saints “itk’s” reckon we’ve made a bid.

3.) 31 Dec 2017 10:38:01
Not sure about him he differently knows where the goal is but he the man is a loose cannon. His wages would be higher than most.

4.) 31 Dec 2017 10:49:43
Would be worth a go never be a dull moment and he is back in the Italy team could be the big signing that was rumoured.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 06:16:48
Real wild card. If the price is right then I guess it makes sense, provided it’s a fairly low risk deal. Same story as studge or Walcott for me, needs to be low risk high reward.

surprised no one's blaming Forster for Everton's goal.

"He's 6 foot 7 he should be reaching the top corner from the opposite side of the goal. What use is having a big 'keeper if he can't do that? "

1.) 27 Nov 2017 13:34:02
Yes sainty saint, I have been saying for ages the only reason people are moaning about forster is because we are not scoring goals and the poor guy gets the blame. don't get me wrong he should shoulder some blame but its like I said to a friend after the burnley game, if we scored 3 goals would any one have moand about the 1 goal burnley scored?

2.) 27 Nov 2017 16:26:10
Its probably the fact he's rumoured saints top earner and you expect something from a premier league gker. What he loses in mobility he should make up for in commanding his box and scaring the s@*t out of anyone going near him or his goal. he obviously has allowed his form to dip, hence being dropped by the England squad. He looks half assed at best. nonchalant would be the nicest word I could use to describe him. although there is an air of arrogance. He does a job sure but would like a decent back up option to keep him on his toes and keep him working hard.

3.) 27 Nov 2017 17:18:41
Wow it's always tough to remember nobody is perfect! But I think the the placement of their goal was perfect mind you! You may agree or not?

Forster does need to hard on his acceptability to let in the long shots but apart from that I think many of us have been overbearing in our criticism towards him.

No doubt that's partly due the results we've been getting of late. Why any of the other so called England goalkeepers are ahead of him simply amazes me!

Pickford was outstanding for England last week mind you. However his Everton form shouldn't put him ahead of our man nor can hearts form! For that matter.
Some of our supporters have forgotten what it was like being a Saints fan when we was relegation fodder for most of the 1990's maybe they wasn't born. so can't possibly remember.
I can it was fun beating the odds season after season.

However, we have move on from those days and we expect more! But maybe we should start to point out more often our players finer points. It's easy to pick holes in others when mistakes are made.

4.) 28 Nov 2017 18:03:50
Whether the criticism has been over the top or not, if you think Forsters performances this season have been acceptable, you need a trip down the opticians.

5.) 29 Nov 2017 11:54:11
It is well known that people had big doubts about FF when he was at Newcastle. Big parts of his game have not improved and I honestly believe that with a better goal keeper, we would have more points on the board.

6.) 30 Nov 2017 13:02:33
Quoting his Newcastle career is totally out of context firstly he was young and still learning his craft secondly when was the last time Newcastle produce a world class players
from their academy.?
he needed to go to Scotland for that!

I'm not claiming he' s without fault he cleanly has frailties but I am looking to my follow Saint fans for a balanced approch to their views in fairness of criticism toward any of our players! We should always be mindful that we supporters of our club and it's players e. g. can you say he is worst than west ham's Heart or Everton's Pickford both are ahead of him international?
Personal I wouldn't.
I would like to see us avoid emotional criticism towards our players other wise we risk being looked appon as people like Donald Trump unhinged.!

7.) 01 Dec 2017 15:59:01
It’s why they sold him!

8.) 02 Dec 2017 16:53:54
4theloveofgame - it is you that has taken my post out of context. If you re read my comment it isn’t all factual. As saint0001 said, they sold him for a reason and since then, he has not improved as the faults remain. I think you will find my comment was both balanced, fair and factual. Like you said at Newcastle he could blame his age, not any more!

9.) 02 Dec 2017 18:19:00
Yes sorry, it was me hands up! My apologies.



07 Jun 2016 23:05:36
Seen some reports saying AC Milan have contacted Pellegrini. Isn't that who Emery was supposed to be going to?

1.) 08 Jun 2016 06:06:05
No that's PSG.



20 May 2016 21:49:26
Tonny Vilhena rumour is doing the rounds again. Contracts up next month, supposedly wants to play for Koeman again.

Anything in it?

1.) 21 May 2016 00:47:28
Going to Leicester.

2.) 21 May 2016 12:12:29
I wouldn't believe that yet. Let's see what happens just because a paper says one thing doesn't mean it will happen. Players can switch look at willian.

3.) 21 May 2016 13:51:28
Koeman was asked about it and said that we had a lot of midfielders at present, but he us a very good prospect that Koeman likes, so we'll see I guess.

4.) 21 May 2016 15:21:32
I think he's already decided on Inter.

5.) 21 May 2016 22:34:42
Inter won't give him what he wants wages wise.



16 Jan 2016 11:30:03
Sky Sports confirming Chaz Austin has passed a medical and agreed personal terms. £4 million fee

Hopefully if it's true it'll shut the moaners up. Although given that it's a 'cheap' transfer, probably not.

1.) 16 Jan 2016 11:51:36
Yh not happy 4 mil not enough
Now get ocampos and were good
Must spend at least 15
We're going down
Any way believe when I see
Only joking
Just think if this happend last year
Not just becuase pelle is off end of season.

2.) 16 Jan 2016 12:14:37
Is he going to be back up for Remy, or play along side, Nephew of Dave?

3.) 16 Jan 2016 13:32:52
Awesome news where does that leave pele and long ed?

{Ed002's Note - Pelle is of interest to Lazio and will be available to leave this month.}

Remember being knocked out the cups early last season and how many of you said you'd give up league position for a decent cup run? 😂

Swear you lot just love a moan 😂.

1.) 30 Apr 2017 11:39:22
Think again the most frustrating thing is more the way they're performing. The Chelsea game I actually thought was ok but yesterday was not good enough. I don't care about rejuvenated teams or new managers we should not be drawing 0-0 at home to hull, no disrespect. A few down the beach earning their mega money while the supporters are still having to pay full whack to watch that pompey. all home games should be discounted till the end of the season and season ticket holders should get free cup next year or something incentive wise. again though we are safe but how will we replace van dijk. romueo might be under the radar enough to stay another season but players will leave and players will come, the problem this year seems to of been the players in haven't matched the quality of this leaving, could that be due to coaching/ scouting/ staff changes or black box not up to scratch but we have paid a lot of money on players this year . will they come good next year, who knows, who knows what the summer will bring but rumours start somewhere and I'm reading a lot of players leaving and not too many inbound. lazy jourbalism is a possibility and hopefully it won't be summer sale clear out again.



13 May 2016 11:05:15
Big Fraser just signed a new 5 year contract. Things are starting to look good!

1.) 13 May 2016 12:28:30
And JWP. both excellent news.



14 Apr 2016 14:47:08
Just set my profile picture to a supposed leak of next seasons shirt (if I'm allowed to have it up aha)

1.) 14 Apr 2016 23:59:53
Yh I would be happy with that kit 100 percent.



09 Apr 2016 16:50:20
Somehow Charlie Austin managed to injure himself sitting on the bench. That 4 million is looking less of a bargain now, eh?

1.) 09 Apr 2016 18:34:29
To be fair to him, he did it running around in the warm-up, not sitting down. Meniscus inured. I thought he'd gone of to watch the National.

2.) 10 Apr 2016 01:42:06
That post made me laugh!
I was thinking the same when I heard it!

3.) 14 Apr 2016 03:40:36
(To be fair to him he done it running around in warm up )
Ha ha ha ha
Even better jof.



20 Mar 2016 16:37:52
I reckon Mane and Pelle shut a few up today.

1.) 21 Mar 2016 07:16:04
Pelle wasn't in the game first half but both looked great during the second. Let's hope they continue to show what they can do. That's the first performance in my view that Mane has given this season.

to be fair to him, he was only behind Cavani, Lacazette and Neymar in terms of goals per minute. Give him a chance, he might surprise you.

In fact - Shane Long’s scored more goals this season.

If he can’t get in the Leicester side and IF they’re willing to take a loss on him after 6 months is he really going to be the right player to bring into the club? Scored a few when surrounded by world class players at city but done nothing at Leicester.

More a sign that he’s injured tbh.

Yes because dodgy bets will make up more than how much the club will lose in value and income 🙄

Y’all have been going on about asset stripping owners for years and it’s never come to fruition.

Absolutely! People talking like Reed hasn’t been instrumental in everything we’ve done since 2009 and Cortese was the real mastermind when he literally just signed the checks to someone else’s money

I agree MP has been a bit of a disappointment, there’s been signs of some decent football it’s just not been consistent but just like how not every transfer has been or will be a success not every manager will be - it’s not the backroom staff or KL “cashing in” (surely a successful club with a squad full of great players would be worth more than a relegated one with poor players? )

lets not patronise huddersfield shall we, they're not some piss poor team sat at the bottom of the table having not won all season. They're 3 points and 2 places above us having played more teams than us. They're a decent team, who've shown that so let's get out of the mindset that we should be putting 10 past every team who haven't been in the prem for a few seasons and spent billions on players.

Pied was on the halfway line because we were in possession and he wouldn't have been expecting a premier league player to be as sloppy as Hoedt was, try something stupid, again and give the ball away. Look at where Bertrand was - no blame for him doing the same thing?

RE: Hojbjerg - When you're playing week in, week out it's easier to play every game.

Imagine if you do 30 mins on a treadmill every day, once you've built that level of fitness it's easy but if you have a week off and do 30 mins it's harder and gets even harder the more time you have off. Players train but it doesn't compare to the intensity and physicality of playing an actual match. As sports science at school taught me - you lose fitness 4x faster than you gain it so of course a player who hasn't played for 13 matches is going to be no where near as fit as a player who's been involved for them. Same reason injured players are given less time when returning and even why clubs have pre-season games.
