The Echo has posted a rumour linking us to Van Gaal. surely not. I can't think of anyone less suited to our style.

Puell is negotiating his severance package - expect news this week.

Reading Paper Talk on Sky Sports it says we are interested in 2 up-and-coming talents, Nishan Birkhart of FC Zurich and Raphael York of Sandviken. I have looked at sites for both teams and they certainly don't show on the first team lists. I take it that they must be youth players.anyone got any more info?

A quick internet search shows up Nishan Burkhart as a 15 year old striker, Swiss U15 international.

York Rafael is a 16 year old Swedish midfielder who apparently signed a three year contract at Sandviken this summer. Which doesn't mean Saints couldn't buy him, of course, but suggests he's not making plans to move at the moment.

Having an interest in these two young lads is ok but what sort of message is that sending out to the academy lads some of whom have been with Saints for a long time.


3.) 14 Sep 2015 17:15:44
What message does it send out? Saints have been signing players from plenty of other clubs (Arsenal and Chelsea, to name a few - and I think they've added a kid from Man City this summer) for their academy, and will continue to cast the net far and wide to try and get the best crop of youngsters possible into the system.

The message it sends out is: business as usual. What's the problem?


4.) 14 Sep 2015 17:40:19
I quite agree. I wouldn't want to go the way of Chelsea and bring fewer British players through as that is what attracts them to come to he club. I suspect that the club will keep the right balance.


5.) 14 Sep 2015 18:42:29
What I'm trying to get across is it must be disheartening for a lad that's been with Saints working his socks off for years dreaming of one day getting into the first team then BANG. A couple more imports to get past. I know that teams have to cast their net wider these days but we have always been known for bringing on British talent.


6.) 15 Sep 2015 00:32:46
These are 15 and 16 year old kids. Saints add 15 and 16 year old kids to the youth squads every season. Nothing has changed. Sam Gallagher didn't join from Plymouth until he was 17. Was that disheartening for everyone? Was there another young striker already on Saints' books who saw some competition coming in and just gave up and joined the circus?

If any of these young lads can't cope with the idea of having to earn their places by being better than their peers, they're not going to make it anyway and are no real loss. That's the reality of it. English football mollycoddles its young talent more than enough as it is.


7.) 17 Sep 2015 00:23:51
Who would you rather have in your youth team and eventually the first team, someone who sulks and gets 'disheartened' at another player in their position being signed or someone who works twice as hard to prove they're better?

It has once again been mooted in the press that we are putting in £10 million bid for Charlie Austin. Apart from being a top striker he also has an annoying knack of scoring against us no matter who he has played for so it would be a double plus if we can get him.

after watching last nights match of the day , I have a feeling he's off to newcastle. alan shearer was talking about it , and seemed to slip up by mentioning him as a newcastle player , before stumbling over his words and changed what he was saying


2.) 25 May 2015 18:37:38
What about a bid for papiss cisse then


3.) 25 May 2015 18:59:09
Can't see anyone going to Newcastle until they have sorted a manager to


4.) 25 May 2015 19:50:25
Apparently AC and Fiorentina are interested in pelle perfect replacement I say


5.) 26 May 2015 21:29:43
All very well getting Austin, but he is rather injury prone.


6.) 27 May 2015 11:02:22
injury prone? are we still talking about austin?
he played 35 premiership games this season ,
31 season before , 37 season before that .
is this an injury prone player? wow , next youll say john terry has been injury prone this season


7.) 27 May 2015 18:44:40
I think he was referring to his knee
Believe it was same as jrod but not 100% certain but that was about 3 seasons ago and I think he would have got past that .

I see that the Mirror is linking Redcrap with Osvaldo who he says can kick-start their season. I hope it's true as they deserve each other.

If West Spam have signed LB Cresswell does that mean they have cooled on Kolo?

irw

1.) Nice hiked the price up from £3-4m to £9m, so I'd assume Wet Sham walked away.

Can't see them buying two LBs.

The point is that he has taken us backwards with a style.

The Express is linking him to us today. I'm all for that.

I don't see any reason to ditch Target. you are allowed to have more than 2 players for any position.
I don't think Harrison Reed has developed much though.

I get the drift. we have a top centre back warming the bench and it's a waste of money and resources not to play him. I agree.

We need more goals from midfield and it doesn't matter how many players we already have they are not going to add up to the required quality or finish.
