Couple of things away from the constant drone of vvd and alike. congratulations to billy sharp for continuing to perform and score goals, always felt you should of been given a chance in the prem, also jay rod for looking fit, sharp and scoring goals good luck to both . now back to the usual.

shane long rumoured to Celtic that surely can't happen and I would still like a forward to come in.2 nil nils in games that on paper we should be winning feel that a plan b (direct target man) bought on in the last 10 minutes could bag us the points. who would everyone like as their deadline day signing?


1.) 30 Aug 2017 18:24:50
Anybody! Bet we sign no one it's the saints way!

2.) 30 Aug 2017 18:52:39
Glaringly obvious that we need a target man.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 18:56:01
I fancy Anthony Knockaert from Brighton, fast and deadly in front of goal. He would probably come here if we paid enough. I rate him and he would work well with Gabby.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 19:51:39
Costa on a three month loan (lol) but more seriously Origi permanently.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 21:22:29
He'd probably have a punch up with Oreol in the warm up.

6.) 30 Aug 2017 21:57:27
A few teams seem to be in need of a target man, I agree origin could be a good option, not necessarily a target man but a decent player who gives 100% every game.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 22:37:50
He's off to Europe according to SSN.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 13:13:18
Sky sports reporting VVD has left the training ground in a blacked out car? Where is he going?

9.) 31 Aug 2017 14:27:06
Home after training?



14 Aug 2017 17:30:42
So takeover is just gao, not lander and its personal investment being reported? Is this correct eds and what does this mean money available regards transfers, growth etc?
Excuse my ignorance but I don't understand the full workings of business and takeovers and gao personal worth and ability to invest. many thanks in advance to anyone that can help.


{Ed002's Note - It means taht the ownership has changed. Money for transfers comes from what the club earns. FFP limits what they can invest this season although they can throw money at the club next season if they make certain provisions. However, the income is such that it should not be an issue in any case.}}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:35:34
Thanks ed, wasn't sure if the fact it wasn't lander ownership would affect any finances. thanks for your time to reply and the info.

{Ed002's Note - The club, like all EPL sides is very healthy given the additional media income (and hence the delay over the price).}



11 Aug 2017 20:22:36
So arsenals shocking defensive display tonight could see them strengthen their interest vvd.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 14:16:46
And Liverpool's today.



28 Jul 2017 11:08:02
Fernando llorente.20 million pound!? Seems good money in this inflated transfer window. I would like him as an option up top.


1.) 28 Jul 2017 12:21:32
Slow and past it. Personally I'd hate that signing.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 18:51:06
Does seem a lot for a striker in his thirties.



14 Jun 2017 22:55:41
So puel is gone, I'm surprised he didn't get another season and not sure if it shows saints expectations but certainly seems a harsh one with the information we know. still new kit release tomorrow, maybe with some clarity on future of ownership new manager and possible signings.


1.) 15 Jun 2017 11:41:05
New kit coming tomorrow, wait till next April to buy it for 15 quid!

So. which saints does everyone think will turn up tonight. don't think we can afford to sit in and hold out for a draw or breakaway goal. might as well go and play some exciting attacking football I reckon.




18 Nov 2017 16:52:44
Ok away at Liverpool we knew what was going to happen. but this is not knee jerk this has been happening for a long time. something is so wrong here and manager coming out and saying we are playing great and players coming out and saying we are happy with everything is really concerning. Something is badly wrong and something needs to happen sooner rather than later. everyone looks beaten and like they could not give one eff about anything.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 17:17:23
Hi rayzer, this was an abject pitiful, performance with no decent chances created. I predict we will lose to Everton at home and we will get a real trouncing away to Man City, lucky to keep it to single figures. I believe the deal for VVD is already done to Liverpool and Bertrand will put in his transfer request as well. THIS IS A CLUB IN CRISIS!

2.) 18 Nov 2017 17:57:47
Hi don't like to say it but vintage saint is spot on this club are now reaping what they have sown over the past 3/ 4 seasons, Just listening to the reports against liverpool and the game could have ended 7/ 8 nil this manager seems to have no motivation skills, no tactical ability, is in a league way above his level his negativity has left the team without any structure and with no cofidence what so ever, there is now several players in the saints team that saints should get shot of this next transfer window, you all know who they are so I am not going to name names, yes I am tadic, redmond, boufal, yet to see ward prowse have a good game, Bertrams head is at man city. sorry to say it but with these players this manager and no prolific striker relegation is staring saints in the face.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 21:56:26
I think we just need to clear out our squad. Didn't watch the game but supposedly the first goal was a mistake made by Tadic. He hasn't been good enough this season, think he needs to go. Shane Long hasn't scored in 10 months he needs to go, he brings nothing whatsoever to the team. Bertrand and VVD both don't want to be at the club they should go. Replace these players with academy players (Stephens, Targett and Sims), we haven't managed to bring through academy players and establish them into the first team since Shaw.
FF still plays every game, even though he is probably the worst GK in the PL. It's an embarrassing decline that is rapidly happening.
I don't feel like the manager knows the squad or enough about the PL to do an antiquate job. We had an okay run going when he played two up top. Then for some reason he went back to 4-2-3-1 and it just isn't the right formation for what we have. If you're playing that formation you need a target man, SL and MG are not target men.
As for Black I don't know why any board would want to hire a first team coach from a team that got relegated. How would that ever help us get top 6?
VVD "Best defender in the PL" - we've played worse with him in the squad. We were much better with Stephens and Yoshida. The only thing that has been inspiring so far this season is the signing of Lemina apart from that we've been shockingly bad. We can't score goals, we don't set-up to score goals. The manager has a big squad and doesn't know how to use any of the players. Boufal for example, he is a very talented footballer. However, he's still very immature, wants to do slick skills against every defender he comes up against and you just can't get away with that in the PL. He is most effective as a substitute against a tired defence, where his skills will cause mistakes and create chances.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 23:31:53
Hi guys, I am so disenchanted that I cannot be bothered to write any more, get Allardyce in for the season pay him a huge bonus if he keeps us up, and. Bertrand and VVD will go January or next summer and have a real cull of all this deadwood, Tadic, Redmond, Austin, Long etc in the meantime look intensively through the youth squads and draft them in, we might not quite be in the bottom three which I predict will be Palace, Swansea, West Brom who will drop down but it will be close Bournemouth look to have turned the corner, Everton seem to have discovered some backbone, West Ham with Moyes and Pearce kicking ass will improve, but we have nothing. What really p----- me off that the weakness of the team is so obvious from the start of the season and the quality of football has been pitiful. Anyway let's see if the Board do anything now or p--- about until January. I bet the latter! . Regards vs.

5.) 19 Nov 2017 08:45:04
I don't think it's that tadic hasn't been good enough sometimes as he's putting balls in the box. There's just no target man. Gabbiadini was thriving on those low crosses when he first came in. At the moment with have redmond taking factor many shots when he couldn't he a barn door. The tactics and forwards don't suit tadic being on the pitch.

It's like he's trying to pick his strongest team on paper each week instead of using player strengths. He never seems to change much either when it's clearly not working. Looking at our run of games and the points difference to relegation zone I think we could likely be around that drop zone come the new year. This isn't a doom a gloom post I genuinely believe we fudged up changing manager.



22 Oct 2017 16:33:56
Bye bye koeman. surely the saints pay more than jobseekers?


1.) 23 Oct 2017 16:38:39
His arrogance and stubbornness did for him in the end! don't think he will be getting that Barcelona job anytime soon!



18 Oct 2017 21:26:38
Ed how serious are the Austin to qpr rumours!?


{Ed002's Note - 37 by my reckoning.}



15 Oct 2017 10:09:07
Looking for a bit of le tiss magic today. who's it going to come from?


1.) 16 Oct 2017 05:53:42
Not sure about any magic but there's definitely a clown on the pitch.

I can see him going to Newcastle . big salary and would suit them. not a typically saints kind of player or transfer.

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.

I feel for luke Shaw. he's been publicly torn to shreds and looks broken. I know his 100 grand a week and perhaps questionable attitude but his talent is undeniable. hopefully he can find fitness and maybe a move that suits him.

You'd like to think although for some reason it wasn't an area of focus in the summer. selling j rod, olomola and Gallagher out on loan and obviously no strikers in. I wouldn't be surprised if January comes and goes without a striker being signed.

I'm not even sure he saves the close range ones. they just seem to hit him. Anything a couple of inches either side of him that require moving usually ends in a goal.

Unfortunately. and it is a real shame our problem is we are the nice guys. A nice team, nice manager, nice board. Its all so nicey nicey. even on the pitch we don't fight we don't get on at the referee for decisions our manager doesn't get vexed on the touchline. its amazing when you hear stories about clubs and managers after they've left. Players at west ham turning up late and not bothering in training being put in the starting 11 week in week out, the manager being there sometimes, you wonder is there player power where a group of players think they're above the club. I hate to say it but this is what I feel about some of the players

Forster- nicest thing I can say is maybe injured.

Bertrand - looks nonchalant and like he really isn't bothered

Van dijk- is too good to be here, would of rather he played to his full potential until he left but he's moving on. get Stephens back in

Redmond- didn't rate him at Norwich, don't rate him now typical English winger. awful but thinks he's anazing

Tadic- his time us up, rare blood disorder can no longer be his excuse just not turning up

Long- I love his work rate and when we had strikers scoring goals he was a great option. We now need a different option and his time to move on is now. just not what we need

Austin- something must be going on behind the scenes I know ed says poor lifestyle etc and I have heard rumours about drink and drugs being an issue before but he either needs to be playing or move him on

Gabbi- needs more from those around but missing for long periods too

I know the club has a responsibility and a right to protect their staff to a degree but its amazing what does actually go on with some if these players. Read a piece on Steven caulker talking his mental health and how bad he was struggling and his time at Southampton was when he was at his lowest. now he obviously has a right to his privacy and all players do I respect that especially with things like mental health but when fans are paying every spare penny they have to watch their favourite team I believe there should be and would like more transparency from the club rather than the usual media whitewash of we played well and we are all really happy.

Ed love that. George ndah I seem to remember was class.


{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, glad you enjoyed. I have added Ndah to the list but it is a very, very, very long list, so it might be a while before I get round to him!}
