Apparently we are highly interested in Pontus Jansson.


1.) 19 Jan 2018 08:05:47
Quincy promes 53 in 101 games for spartak Moscow
Dutch player sounds good ratio of goals per game but they are asking for 30 mill
At some point we have to start getting real and say that the top players are going to be a lot more money
But I'd be surprised at this one.


 

 

17 Jan 2018 20:58:38
There are rumours that we are looking at Adama Traore now that Walcott has gone to Everton.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 09:29:03
Always seemed to me as a very 'raw' talent - Quick as a whippet and bags of ability, just seemed to struggle to put that into something tangible on the pitch. Don't get me wrong though, would love us to buy him! ;-)


2.) 18 Jan 2018 09:37:44
Buy him I’ve said it enough times looks more level headed this year will he leave borough for us though.


3.) 18 Jan 2018 10:41:19
Quick as a whippet and bags of ability. sounds like another Long or Redmond.


4.) 18 Jan 2018 22:22:59
I'd like him, but not necessarily sure he'd be a difference maker this year for us. Good signing long term though.


 

 

16 Jan 2018 16:45:05
Apparently we have launched an inquiry into Kevin Gameiro. Any truths in this eds?

I would love to see him at the club. He really showed his class when playing for Sevilla, and he hasn't been downright rubbish for Atletico either. What are anyone else's thoughts?

{Ed002's Note - I would need to ask.}


1.) 17 Jan 2018 10:28:50
Everything I have seen is the club saying they have not had talks for gameiro or gaitan.


 

 

08 Jan 2018 17:37:12
apparently there is high interest in celtic's Stuart armstrong. any trith in this eds?

{Ed007's Note - Yes. Armstrong is available and Southampton and WBA are definitely interested in him but nothing will happen - if it's going to happen in this window -until Celtic get back from Dubai next week.}


1.) 08 Jan 2018 20:02:07
Ok, thank you.

{Ed007's Note - No probs buddy.}


2.) 09 Jan 2018 12:50:27
Why the hell do we need yet another midfielder. We are swimming in them for God's sake. Strikers are what we need .


3.) 09 Jan 2018 15:00:38
Apparently he can play on the left jonah as I've been told by celtic fan.

{Ed007's Note - He can play in CM/LM or as a No.10.}


4.) 09 Jan 2018 18:30:19
Don't know anything about him really but I've been saying we need a No 10/ CAM type player so sounds like he could be good.

Would prefer to see someone like him than spending loads on Walcott.

{Ed007's Note - As usual the question is whether he can make the step up from Scotland to England but he held his own in Europe no problem. I'm actually pretty disappointed to see him leaving as he struggled at first with us but I was always willing him to show what he can do and he started turning things round when Rodgers came in - I had him pegged as a future Celtic captain. If he does join you won't be 'moaning' about his effort and commitment, he'll work and graft every minute he's on the park and he will score some cracking goals too. He's a quiet unassuming lad - and is or was studying for a law degree - and that sometimes comes across as nonchalant but behind that he's got a heart of a lion.}


5.) 10 Jan 2018 08:57:34
Ed007 - that does sound impressive and sounds like a player we could do with, maybe a replacement for Davis. The only thing I would say and would love to see us bring in is a player with a bit of attitude about him, someone that will stand up and fight. I look at our squad and to me we always seem to sign the quite type!

{Ed007's Note - He's not quiet when he's on the pitch, he's an aggressive player and likes a meaty tackle - ooo er matron!}


6.) 10 Jan 2018 14:21:54
It's a well-trodden path from Parkhead to St Mary's and they've all been successful buys, no reason this should be any different if it goes ahead.


7.) 11 Jan 2018 10:14:08
Ed007 - well then I would love to see him play at St Marys. Can I ask, do you not get fed up with us keep coming for your best players? I know its football but like Liverpool taking our best players, I struggle with it. I know VVD is good business but still it hurts for us to sell our best year in year out.

{Ed007's Note - It does pee me off when we're playing in the CL where players like Forster, VVD and Wanyama would make a big difference to our team but as you said, it's what football is these days. In a way though it helps our recruitment because we can offer players a proven route to the EPL so it's a bit swings and roundabouts.}


8.) 11 Jan 2018 14:16:23
Ed, that is a good way to look at it, I admire your maturity. For me even at 40 now I still struggle to accept it, you would think us saints fans should be used to it by now.

I actually can't believe the liverpool fan on Talk sport this morning, he actually was angry that liverpool's best players keep getting sold! WTF, try being a celtic or Southampton supporter mate! . Anyway keep up the good work Ed's, you all do a sterling job.


 

 

03 Jan 2018 07:12:03
Apparently Southampton are interested in Nicolas Gaitan. Any truth in this eds?

He would certainly be a great addition to the team. My only concern is that his first name is actually Osvaldo!

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I know he was available but know nothing of interest or likelihood of Saints signing him.}

17 Jan 2018 20:46:27
Yo, for all you moaners. There is talk that the board is growing concerned about MP. So who knows.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 22:18:35
"Growing" concerned, over half way through the season, over half way through the transfer window, already losing some of our easiest and "must win" games.? It's a bit late for growing. I have no idea what is happening at my club. I've tried to remain positive over the last couple of years when others seemed to be losing their heads. I still believe that the squad we have should have been capable to finish at least in the top ten. But this woeful excuse for a manager has failed miserably, and it seems like the board, the black box, whatever, have no answers what to do next. We are in a DESPERATE situation. I think we're one more loss away from protests and banners. If he doesn't go in the next week with a replacement ready to come in I honestly think we will go down and the hard work of almost 10 years will be completely undone and wasted.

{Ed0333's Note - It’s a tough one Milky. Do you give Peligrino money now to spend to get some players in and see how it goes or do you sack him now? It’s an interesting situation for neutrals but I’m sure it’s a desperate one for you Saints fans. I’d be inclined to get rid and give the new man some time to implement a Premiership survival mission. It maybe too late in 6-8 matches time. I’m not too sure who you would go for? Any ideas?


2.) 17 Jan 2018 22:23:14
It feels like a worse situation than when we dropped through the league's. At least there was a reason for that. We had no money and we had to sell all our players, managers could do nothing to stop it. now we have a team full of internationals, youth, experience. Yes we are a little unbalanced but compare our squad to those in the bottom half of the table, it's a good squad. Yet we are in freefall.

1 win in 14, against a terrible Everton side with a caretaker manager. Take that freak result out of the equation, where would we be? MOPE the clown. More out of his depth than Paul sturrock was.


3.) 17 Jan 2018 23:30:57
Be careful Milky you will be attacked for being a moaner . Everybody who thinks we are in a desperate situation are being hammered for being pessimistic and should be backing the team and this very out of his depth manager. I have supported Southampton Football Club for a very, very long time . We should have kept Puel and given him a chance and by the look of how Leicester are doing that is pretty obvious. Most of us just can’t believe what’s happening, like you I think we have some very talented players that just need direction and motivation. We will never ever get that from this manager.


4.) 18 Jan 2018 00:43:54
I think he has proved BEYOND DOUBT that he is quite simply not up to the task of managing in the Premier League. I am sure the Eds could add an experienced head into this discussion, but I see it this way. football in the PL has developed quite rapidly over the last few years. Where once teams were so predictable in the way they played, including the likes of Man u, Arsenal, Chelsea . now it is an absolute must to be able to adjust formations, game plans, both pre kick-off and at any time during the game, not just half time. Players are more flexible, defenders are smarter, players are more intelligent.
And there lay our problem. It is almost like MP has never watched umpteen DVD's of the opponent; he sets his team out the same every week. He is then surprised, dumbfounded, at a loss when the opponent tweaks their game plan to counteract us. We are so predictable I find myself knowing what a player is going to do with the ball, so for a pro manager. coach it must be so easy.
Watford was the perfect example. We cam out with the usual formation, Watford struggled, changed everything and we were lost!
It is now not about whether MP is a nice guy or not, it is about the fact he does not know how to win a game and win games you must to survive.

Who who I have . mmmmm . all the old school managers are taken. its time to get Ronald k back . but would he come .


5.) 18 Jan 2018 06:22:12
The worrying thing for me is the "black box" and "southampton way" seemed to of been forgotten, broken or just a cheap marketing ploy. our last few signings have been transfer records and are really still not setting the world on fire. yes they have shown glimpses but lemina, boufal and gabs are all quality players but we are still waiting for it to happen. same with managers poch, koeman. I know you can't get it right Every time but it seems everything of the last 18 months has been "different". I won't say wrong I'll say different. And to those who feel justification in personally attacking people or pulling them to pieces on emotion and independent thought, perhaps you could just button it and keep your thoughts on others to yourself because no matter what you think if our form carries on this way we are hoping that 3 teams are worse than us, otherwise we will be relegated and the championship is 1 hell of a league to get out of and I'm not sure we would.


6.) 18 Jan 2018 10:13:45
Its not just the first team who are constantly producing poor displays, go and watch the U23s etc and you will see carbon copy football of the first team. I think ALL coaching staff are adhering to instructions from Les Reed, he has obviously lost the plot and I am afraid relegation is certain unless a change in tactics happens soon. Shame, we have some really good players!


7.) 18 Jan 2018 14:53:05
Stupidity was the only way to describe some of the bs that's coming out of this forum lately and I'm not sorry.

This thread is another shining example of it; to suggest we're in a worse situation now than when we were in administration and free falling through the leagues is exactly that: Stupid. We're 17th and that sucks. The bookies still have us at 5.5 to go down. 5.5 people! Just think about that for a second before you next decide to talk about us as if we're down already and done as a club.

If it helps, I mean that what you're saying is stupid and not that you personally are, I don't know any of you.


8.) 18 Jan 2018 15:15:09
I think the last 3 signings are of genuine quality, although boufal is obviously very raw and leminas attitude is questionable. Gabbis confidence must be rock bottom with the way he's been treated and mis-used by this manager.

I would get rid NOW! like, today! And get someone in to try and keep us up. but a good question as to who. My personal choice would be Roy Keane, for reasons I won't go into right now. But would he come to us? I don't know. I just have a feeling he would be a success. but the more time that passes the deeper in the sh*t we are.

The trouble with signing players, who would want to come to us?! We look like we're going down, we've got the worst manager in the league. We don't look like the attractive proposition that we have done over the last few years. So the only players that would consider joint that might have the quality to help are likely to be mercenaries on astronomical wages. which would be a risk because if we do go down what happens to those players? We are in a very, very bad situation.


9.) 18 Jan 2018 15:32:35
what I said in my post is far from stupid, it's very far from being stupid!
There are always going to be games where you win, sometimes by luck, sometimes by skill, sometimes because the other team are that bad.
But you need wins to survive and you need to know how to win, be that coming from behind or holding onto a winning position.

This manager does not have the necessary 'skills' to get us out of this free fall. For the first time in years we are struggling and struggling badly. I remember when we had a bad patch with Ronald K, we all knew from our style of play that we would come good . and we did. MP has been saying from virtually week 1 that 'if we keep playing this way we will start winning'.

Saints123 . we haven't . we haven't changed, adapted, tried different systems.

It is only comparable to the deep dark days in that, like then . we struggled and struggled . and were relegated.


10.) 18 Jan 2018 16:20:23
Please stop with the Roy Keane thing. His managerial record was poor enough to see him get the boot from both Sunderland and Ipswich. All he ever does is criticise now and I doubt he has ever done anything else. He has a huge chip on his shoulder. Will he motivate or demoralise? This is a man who intentionally injured another professional football player and bragged about it and who walked out on his country at the World Cup (hardly a regular thing for the ROI) because he wasn’t happy with the coach or the training facilities. There is nothing that he has ever said or shown that demonstrates he has the capacity to be a trustworthy leader, nor the tactical nous or resilience to succeed in this league as a manager, especially at a team of young players low on confidence. Man management of a squad is a complicated thing when trying to unite so many different personalities and its not as simple as getting in someone who will shout at the players and threaten them with injury on the training pitch if they don’t start playing better.


11.) 18 Jan 2018 16:23:31
Totally agree.


12.) 18 Jan 2018 16:47:49
Figo . you are always articulate and level headed in your comments, so I know I will get a sensible reply :-)
do you think we should change managers and if yes, to who .


13.) 18 Jan 2018 19:13:41
Mate I've said I think I'd fire MP if I was in charge, but I'm fed up with all the doomsday stuff. I agree, I want to see more fire from him and certainly more experimentation as far as our formation and mentality is concerned. What's annoying me is people ripping everyone associated with the club, and the entire structure of the club, because of what they view as one bad manager and a very bad half a season.

And I'm sorry but you said it's "far from stupid, very far from stupid", so can you please justify that just a little bit? Because later in the same post you said its only comparable in that we're struggling now and we were struggling then too. Can you genuinely not see how you've just doubled-down on what you said, and then completely undermined it, all in one post.?


14.) 18 Jan 2018 21:10:41
Phew . jesus . having to explain the composition of a post is zzzzzzzz
ok this is the post I was referring to as being 'far from stupid, very far from stupid'

there is nothing stupid in this post and there is no over the top doom and gloom, it is factual and a pretty damn good representation of our current manager and situation .

,

this is not doubling down, neither is it undermining my post .

i am stating CONTRARY to all the doom merchants who are criticising the football club from top to bottom, and comparing now with the awful days of multi relegations . that the ONLY true
comparison with those days and now is ONE thing .
we are struggling and struggling . FACT


As for quoting bookies odds . they have gone down and down and down . :-)


15.) 19 Jan 2018 14:02:30
yeah that's my bad I assumed since you were defending yourself so much you were the guy I was talking about in the first place (i. e. the bloke saying we're worse off now than we were then) .

Sorry mate.


16.) 19 Jan 2018 22:07:55
Sorry – only just caught up on posts.

South_Hants_Rich: whilst I’ve tried to get behind MP, I’ve ultimately seen nothing of late in the team’s performances to suggest an improvement. The learning curve is very steep in this league and MP seems so shocked after every loss I fear he is not keeping his head above water. That coupled with steady improvements from the likes of Palace and even recent shoots of recovery from Swansea cause greater concern. So I’m open to a change.

As everyone else has highlighted, the difficulty comes down to who we bring in. The way I see it, you have two choices – Premier League experienced or not. Its tempting to bring in someone experienced in this league as it is quite unique in respect of the high level of competition amongst the teams between 7 and 20. However, that is only a recent change so anyone who hasn’t managed in this league for 2 or 3 seasons is perhaps as unfamiliar with the league as it currently stands, as a manager from outside. I would hate to see anyone like Tony Pulis at our club as he will not allow the team to play the football we all want and we’d be stuck with him. I’d rather go down and rebuild.

I have read rumours that Rafa could leave Newcastle in light of the failed takeover and I would be pleased with bringing someone like him in, purely because of his level of experience and tactical knowledge. I believe he could not only keep us up but take the club forward and make us competitive once more. Whether fighting for 7th or 8th spot in the premier league will prove anough for him to stay in the long term is another question. Otherwise, I’m not sure there’s anyone else I’m that interested in from within the league.

From the outside, as we’ve seen with our last four managers, you’re never sure what you’re going to get and now I think we can all acknowledge ‘the Southampton way’ is a thing of the past, I’m not sure the last two managers have really fitted the bill. The recruitment criteria will need to be adjusted. Perhaps it would make sense to find a young manager who is ambitious but loyal. Someone who doesn’t simply see us as a stepping stone, but a team he wishes to take as far as he can.

That’s why I’m drawn to managers like Gary Rowett; I buy into the idyll of us recruiting a younger manager to rebuild the club now that it has reached this transitional period and allowing him several seasons to mould the team and adjust ambition accordingly. Its fair to say Cortese’s five year plan is long gone and who knows what the existing plan or model is. Would I risk relegation for this? At this stage, I think I would. Simply because I do not see that the previous model of recycling players and managers so frequently is sustainable. Anyone we get in now would either be a firefighter or an ambitious manager who will look to move to a bigger club playing in Europe as soon as the opportunity arises. Now the league and transfer market have altered to our detriment, it will simply be much harder for us to keep hold of any good manager we find for even 2 or 3 seasons. So let's identify a manager who we will give 5 or 6 years at the helm to build the squad. We should compare ourselves with a club like Burnley rather than a Newcastle, Everton etc.

We all need to be realistic of where we are. Liebherr and Cortese are gone and we are now on a par with the Stokes, West Broms, Swanseas, and Palaces of this league. Europe is out of reach and will be for the foreseeable future with the transfer market as skewed as it is. My view is the same even if we cling on to MP until the summer. We need a long-term strategy in place because at the moment, we have dropped from a season to season plan to, currently, a transfer window to transfer window plan should MP go this month.


 

 

13 Jan 2018 17:02:58
Well that was really annoying rather than disappointing today. Watford's first goal nothing could have been done to stop it, McCarthy was on the floor and made an effort to recover, but a little bit late. And then their second goal was a handball and shouldn't have been allowed. As for saints though I thought we played really well, especially in the first half, and not too bad in the second half, and unfortunately we conceded a soft, unlucky goal and a controversial goal.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 17:10:17
#PellegrinoOut that's my view of today's game, absolutely clueless 2nd half.


2.) 13 Jan 2018 17:31:00
Couldn’t agree more Byron, he did it again got in a winning position and tried to sit on it. Regardless of the handball goal we just let them come at us in the second half. The manager is clueless, the players aren’t, we have quality players and a manager that isn’t.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 17:41:34
I was disappointed in romeu. should of put him on deeney and roughed him up. they let him boss it. Officials should have to make public apologies after such a poor decision and sorry davis was at fault for the first goal. thought McCarthy made a great save and actually 3 defenders were slow to react. what would peoples opinions be if the second goal was disallowed and we had won. I feel it was a good game we played well and were unlucky. shows we need some muscle and some physicality. I don't mean could and bad attitude I mean aggression and strong tackles.


4.) 13 Jan 2018 18:18:24
Byron, please feel free to back up your view that today’s result was down to Pellegrino’s management.

Saint Chris, Rayzer makes a fair point. What would you say if we had won today? You assume that Pellegrino instructed the players to protect the lead but you’re ignoring the fact that Watford, the home side, came out for the second half after being motivated by their manager, booed off by their fans and with a substitution made ready to change their approach. They had nothing to lose and came flying at us. In some situations, you can’t just fight the opposition off the ball and carry on attacking them at will. There are spells in every game where the opposition takes control and you have to manage that as best you can. Sporting contests are so often dictated by momentum and when the opposition has it, its very difficult to wrestle back but I think we coped pretty well with Watford. Irrespective of their play or ours, we would’ve won today but for a handball.

There is literally nothing this team or manager will be able to do to appease some fans. I honestly don’t understand why you bother.


5.) 13 Jan 2018 19:18:33
Figo we didn't win regardless of the dodgy goal, maybe just maybe when we are in the Championship you may feel the majority of us were talking s nose.


6.) 13 Jan 2018 19:44:15
Sorry about that iPad had a mind of it's own. How many points could we have had if we hadn't decided to sit back. I think the first half proved that if we go on the front foot we have players that can cause problems. Just fed up with some people saying we are moaning. We are moaning but for the right reasons, look where we are in the league, crazy. We're better than that .


7.) 13 Jan 2018 20:48:33
See your point ****, and see the others too. fact is the bloke is inept. He hasn't got a clue. brought lemina on for Davis for legs and to shore it up, but then no change until the 93rd minute when we'd already conceded. If he wanted to protect the league he could have stuck another defender on. If wanted to get us back up the pitch and on the front foot he could have made a change up top with either gabbi or boufal. he did NOTHING! He sat on It, crossed his fingers and hoped for the best. Take out the freak drubbing of Everton when they were in freefall under unsworth and we'd be in the bottom 3. This manager is awful.


8.) 13 Jan 2018 22:06:14
Figo - you hit the nail on the head, Watford came out motivated by their manager. How many times can we say that for a second half this season?


9.) 14 Jan 2018 10:46:44
You might be right Figo. But if the manager is taking that approach about a commanding lead at half time, then they clearly don't have a clue about the premier league. And yes protect the lead - that to me doesn't mean that you should sit back and try to defend your goal for 45 minutes. That to me says keep possession keep your shape, close down the opposition when they've got the ball.
They may have scored in the last minutes of the match with a handball. However, we should have never been in the position to let that happen.

what are people's thoughts on getting danny ings. he is only 25, has proven himself, and he was born in winchester.


1.) 08 Jan 2018 19:23:08
Would be interesting. would be great as an initial loan with option. bout time liverpool sent some business our way.


2.) 08 Jan 2018 21:20:33
It all depends if we can get a fit Danny ings he's had a couple of bad injuries a little like jay rod tbh
If he's available on a loan deal I'd think he'd be worth a go
All depends if his injuries hold off.


3.) 09 Jan 2018 07:48:25
If he can’t get in a team ahead of someone who hasn’t scored a first team goal why would we want him.


 

 

08 Jan 2018 07:11:57
I think most would agree that Steven Davis is one of thee most decent solid players at Southampton. So maybe we should listen him. He is urging the fans to quit the anti-Pellegrino chants as he says they are 'not helping'. Well as have said before, you can't expect the players to perform at their best if the fans are jeering the manager and his players. In most circumstances of life, where someone has backed someone they don't necessarily like or agree with, things have started turning out better. So for heavens sake get behind our team and our club, and be fans worth playing for!


1.) 08 Jan 2018 12:34:37
Article asking whether the 'Southampton Way' still exists, the author delves into our coaching practices at academy and senior levels, the players, the current and previous managers impact and considers the finances and board practices as well. All interesting stuff:

goo.gl/t4ZCE


2.) 08 Jan 2018 22:03:43
Well right now I see a team not playing for the manager and this has been happening way before the anti-chants so for me that hold no logic for me. The team has to be the one to the fans on side.


3.) 09 Jan 2018 07:10:49
Yes, but the fans have to be on the team's side too, and considering we have players saying that the anti-chants aren't helping then maybe it is us that needs to change a bit more.

Yes but how many games has long started compared to kelichi? probably around three times as many, and long isn't our top scorer.

Rayzer are you serious? Bit of a crap reason to leave. High level of immaturity.

The Guido Carrillo thing seems pretty solid info, however I'm not sure weather we have actually put a bid in for him, and if we have weather they have refuse or accepted. I do hope it goes ahead because I think that he is the South-American attacking influence the team badly needs. Do you know any more eds?

I agree rayzer, not only has yoshi been quite good defensively, but he has also been quite a good attacking threat, especially of set pieces. He has scored some nice goals this season and has also had some unlucky shots hit the bar. Personally I don't think we need a replacement for VVD. I assumed bringing in hoedt in the last transfer window was the replacement for when vvd goes. the money would be better off being used to strengthen our attack, and make it back into a consistent goal scoring machine. we currently have a -10 goal difference.

I was wondering if the bad second half performances may be down to the team's fitness? The whole team just suddenly seems to come out with no energy. They either need to get fitter or have a couple of red bull's at half time.

Thomas Tuchel is still out of a job. If he would come to saints it would be a kind of stepping stone into the premier league before he joins a bigger club. People say that saints would be too small for him after managing Dortmund, however he did come from mainz who aren't that much bigger than saints so this could be possible. Others could include Carlo Ancelotti, although this would be very unlikely, Guus Hiddink, Claudio Ranieri, Manuel Pellegrini, or someone younger like Giggs.

Maybe if you knew who I was you wouldn't be saying that.

Yes, but the fans have to be on the team's side too, and considering we have players saying that the anti-chants aren't helping then maybe it is us that needs to change a bit more.
