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.

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.}



13 Jan 2016 17:51:36
big Fraser to start tonight.

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.

it's not our money but it's our club and I'd rather the club didn't blow money on over priced and over paid prima donna's and end up in a situation like 2009 again or worse - end up like pompey.

When was the last time Boufal was given a full game though? He needs a run of games, he’s still used to French football where he had all the time in the world and if anyone would breathe near him he’d get a free kick. Get him up to speed with the prem and he’ll be quality.

Doubt Walcott will be an improvement tbh, too much ego in the lad now. Wants to be the main man up front and we can’t offer that and if we paid him what he wanted in wages (not that we could due to the FFP) what message would that send to the other players?

How many players, that we actually go on and sign, are 'linked' to us anyway though?

isn't the world record 200 million now? Essentially telling them to stump up more than Neymar for a CB worth 1/ 4 of that at most

If I walked up to you and wanted to buy your car and you told me you wanted, let's say £1,000,000 isn't that essentially telling me to f*** off?

signing another midfielder allows us to move clasie on and/ or possibly use him in a deal with lazio for hoedt.

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.

"Pied is nowhere near match fit so why play him in such an important game even though Cedric is injured"

well. who else is going to play there? Yoshida? You'll moan about that too. Redmond starting? You'll moan about that. Playing 3 at the back with no defensive cover on the right? You'll moan about that when it goes tits up.

There was a few good chances in the first half, Austin hit the bar and headed over when it was easier to score and VVD headed wide from a corner when he really should have scored. If we played the same way yet scored even one of those chances, would you be moaning about how we played? I suspect not.

Hoedt gave the goal away and yes he would have made it regardless as I counted 4 times he'd gotten away with the same thing before he got caught out

As the others have said Lemina and Hojbjerg aren't fully fit but you want them to play and look off the pace like Pied? So you can have a moan about them when it happens?

if I was picking the team I'd go for (basically a diamond pushed further forward)

GK: Forster
RB: Cedric
CB: Hoedt
LB: Bertrand
DM: Romeu
DM: Lemina
AM: Davo
AM: Boufal
ST: Gabbiadni

Very fluid with plenty of defensive cover - 2 DM's and Davo can drop back to CM if needed, plenty of attacking power with 2 AM's and Lemina bounding forward, the quality of JWP's set pieces and the ability to put JWP and Boufal on the wings if more width is needed.

Long's movement is worth starting him alone, he may not score many goals but his pace and work rate is a constant headache for defenders. They never know whether to stick with him or Gabbiadini and risk the other breaking the offside trap or drop deeper and allow them more time and space on the ball. Long always forces mistakes from defenders, how many penalties has he won (and how many should he have rightfully won)? Yes, Austin may technically be a better finisher than Long but he doesn't offer the team work that long does and it doesn't matter how good of a finisher you are, if you're not getting the chances you won't score. With the current formation Long > Austin

Though I do agree with Boufal > Tadic.
