Reports that we have made a bid for Sofiane Boufal from Lille.


1.) 06 Jul 2016 08:43:05
apparently it's not true. We haven't made an offer.

2.) 06 Jul 2016 08:54:55
I don't think we're that far along with this one, I suspect an enquiry and not much more.

We have also been linked with Steaua Bucharest's Nicusor Stanciu, he tends to play as a number 10, a key role for Puel's system, and would possibly be available at a sensible price.

{Ed002's Note - Stanciu is certainly available as Lorient has had an offer for Steaua Bucharest's Nicolae Stanciu accepted and the player must decide whether to make the move to France or wait to see if other options are available.}

3.) 06 Jul 2016 11:26:31
Good stuff Ed002 :)

4.) 07 Jul 2016 09:26:11
Now we have a French manager, all the news seems to be coming from L’Equipe. Today they have said Boufal is hoping for Barca, PSG, Chelsea - 'one of the big clubs' - even Spurs (! ), so Puel is moving on and not wasting time trying to persuade him to Saints.

Austin signs 4.5 years deal for 4million good business, proven EPL goal scorer, what are other saints fans views?


1.) 16 Jan 2016 14:03:33
Fantastic work from the board to sign a player who scored 18 premier league goals for a poor QPR side, top work!

2.) 16 Jan 2016 14:29:33
At last another goal scorer
Good work
Come on u saints.

3.) 16 Jan 2016 20:17:18
Pelle now suffering from recurring knee inflammation. We need a 15 goal a season forward. Answer, bring in Charlie who may also need to be managed for fitness and between the two of them you achieve what we need, at least until the end of the season, especially if Jay Rod has any setbacks. That is only my opinion of the reasoning but if correct I don't see any of our current forwards leaving in January.

4.) 16 Jan 2016 20:17:27
87, after all the rubbish you have spouted about the board ( Katherina and les and Ralph ) you now say good work. This just beggars belief!

5.) 18 Jan 2016 19:35:25
I'm thinking the signing of Austin is good business for £4 million considering Norwich look like they're going to be splashing out double that for Naismith.

6.) 20 Jan 2016 00:06:08
Good signing, I do however think we may have broken our wages structure with Charlie Austin . There is no way we would have got him for 4 million unless there was a few add ons and an undercover incentive . It doesn't make sense otherwise .

Gazzaniga signs new contract extension to 2019

What do fans think about this?


1.) 12 Sep 2015 14:09:03
He must be amazing in training because everytime I've watched him play I've bricked it , very shaky does not inspire confidence to the defenders and it shows. but he must have the ability and seems like a favourite within the club always laughing and joking around so who knows may come good

2.) 12 Sep 2015 15:21:26
He was decent when he played at the end of last season and even better during pre season, if he carries on developing the way he has, he'll be quality. Needs more game time imo, should have gone somewhere on loan this season as Davis will probably retire at the end of this season and Gazzaniga will become the permanent no.2

3.) 12 Sep 2015 17:01:26
Well he must show something in training but it still doesn't even get him a place on the bench. If Kelvin Davis is still considered to be better than him he surely can't be that good.

4.) 12 Sep 2015 19:54:23
Well, I think you've summed up my feelings, that's why I asked the question, I was a little surprised, as he appears an average player and certainly not someone who could step right into the first team (even with injuries).

I'd like to see the club sorting out other contracts to ensure we retain them (RK, victor)

5.) 15 Sep 2015 10:12:17
His wages must be low.



19 Aug 2015 14:52:40
Following RK's comments in the press conference there will be one (1) more player coming to the club as first stated it will be a CD.


1.) 19 Aug 2015 15:57:44
He may well of said that but as the club (Les Reed) has also said that if there is a special deal to be had then we are in a position financially to do it



31 Jul 2015 21:38:33
OS reports that season tickets sales are at a decade high, is now the time to think about expanding the stadium?


1.) 31 Jul 2015 23:13:04
only when it's full

2.) 31 Jul 2015 23:42:38
Won't happen until we start selling out every home game, it's on the long term agenda.

3.) 01 Aug 2015 23:00:21
Unfortunately we don't have a big enough fan Base who consistently want to watch the games

I'm a little disappointed that we didn't manage to get a Central Defender in.
Fonte out
Not sure gardos or stephens are up to the job,
certainly needed extra cover, what are saints fans thoughts on this one?




14 Dec 2016 18:25:43
So Puel has said that Austin's injury presents an opportunity.
Yes to purchase a new striker in the January window.
We do not have a replacement in the current squad.
Hopefully Jay or Long will start to find the net and prove me wrong.

Josh Sims - excellent debut

Apparently Koeman wasn't aware of him when he was the saints manager - probably a reflection of how much time he bothered to look at our youth system then?


1.) 28 Nov 2016 09:02:14
I think that koeman not being interested in our youth was the main reason Saints board wanted him out.

2.) 28 Nov 2016 11:20:29
It was high up on the list as well as Koemans demands for a big transfer kitty to 'push' us on. Again overlooking our youth and pushing them further down the line.

Yesterday Sims and how Saints had let McQueen's contract run into its final year are both examples of Koemans lack of faith in the youth and why we didn't give into his demands and ultimatly let him go. Not the other way round.

3.) 28 Nov 2016 18:38:12
Mcqueen's contract would be nothing to do with Kidman that's for reed to sort listen to virgils comments when he said he was badly treated nobody knows the truth.
Let's hope Mcqueen signs but you can't keep 3 left backs happy so who goes plus there is another 16 year old in the academy who has as already played u23 coming through.
I just wish we had played a couple in third Cedric and Bertrand gave us much more stability and width.

4.) 29 Nov 2016 11:45:25
My nephew is 19 - lives in shirley - he went to college with 2 academy players in Saints FC - one is a good friend he has known since they were 5 years old - so very close - he said end of last season that the academy players were very happy that Koeman moved on and that they felt there was no progress from the academy into the senior team, that they would play Saints Academy then be moved off into the lower leagues - that was their feeling. Now players are starting to be used again they are much happier and can see progression.



06 Nov 2016 16:26:17
Thinking about our goals scored to chances created, I wondered what others thought about this?
I think we need to invest in another proven goal scorer in January.


1.) 06 Nov 2016 20:36:55
I agree. Tadic has made the most chances made in the league but no assists! I think we took our foot off the gas a bit when we should have gone ahead and killed it off. But we looked pedestrian until they scored. We need an out and out striker Austin does score a lot but he misses a lot too. Plus 3 of his goals have been pens haven't they? Lol.



27 Aug 2016 20:57:41
With the transfer window fast approaching 'closed'
What positions do you feel we need to strengthen still?


1.) 27 Aug 2016 21:29:33
I honk we need a creative midfielder, hopefully Boufal has a medical tomorrow and that deal goes through. Second on the agenda should maybe be another striker? I also feel that we need a midfield destroyer, someone big and physical. Rumours are we are looking at a loan for a right back now that Pied has a long term injury. Can't see us making 4 signings though.

2.) 28 Aug 2016 12:42:34
I only ask as I think we're short
IMO, the following are needed (not wants)
1) A proven goal scorer
2) a CDM, someone who is commanding in the middle, and links defence, mid and forward play) (maybe if we ditch the diamond and revert to 2 central mids this may help)
3) a quality CD, the cover we have is not good enough for the EPL.

3.) 28 Aug 2016 14:36:31
We need a cam who is boufal a striker maybe bony and a centre back Jason denayer.

Stats wise are we looking any better now than we did under CP this time last season?

Saint jay, yeah, that's my vision, apols for not making it clear
hopefully we will adopt a different system soon.

something needs to change, IMO it is a combination of tactics and players - sometimes we don't look like a cohesive unit.
5,3,2 OR 4,4,2 - one up front isn't working.

I suspect the current 3rd and 4th choice CB's will be our 1st and 2nd choice CB's next season after another summer sale at St Mary's

We look short in many areas, too many 'not good enough' players who don't perform.

Pure football, apart from the very leaky defence.

too slow in build up play and poor with the final ball
There are a number of players who just don't cut it for me
Redmond being one.

Agree, now let's get a quality CB in and the moaner out.

So if this happens, who would you have the board replace him with?

St Sam, check your spellings mate.
Opinion, yes, if you want to perceive it as a fact, that's up to you.
In my opinion most replacements are/ have been substandard.
Tadic and Lallana, no contest who is a better player, Mane and Redmond, are you joking even making a comparison, and Boufal?
I still don't see Cedric being better than Clyne, and as for Morgan and comparisons, mmm, Morgan was and still is a class act (bar his current injury of course)
Like I said my opinion, (not fact) (spell check on too) .

a most definite and resounding 'yes'
Another summer with sales and substandard replacements.
