There are some rumours that saints want ben gibson to replace vvd. Any truth in this eds?

saint bod

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 08 Aug 2017 13:53:59
I like Gibson, but not for £30m.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 14:08:18
You're right sam.30 mill is a lot considering he's in the championship. if we could get him at closer to 20, Wimmer at maybe 15 (or hoedt from lazio for 12) and sell van dijk then we've done well. add lemina who is supposedly having a medical today, then we've had a good window. (if van dijk is sold then that covers almost all the costs for those new additions) maybe a pacy winger, but I wouldn't know who is available that would improve the team.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 15:33:41
Hoedt and Wimmer for me, Gibson isn't worth the money at all! At best he's worth 15-20 maybe. There are plenty of good cb's around maybe not all are available but plenty around! And I'd rather we spent less than more.

Think about it we have money to spend I firmly believe we will get s good player in but not for 30 million!

4.) 08 Aug 2017 16:22:04
I agree Hoedt and Wimmer. Stephens is good enough for first team - 30m is a complete waste.

5.) 08 Aug 2017 17:33:49
30m seems very steep, but then 20 seems a lot for wimmer too. Anyone's going to cost a lot but I think Gibson would be my favourite of the three. That said I don't know a lot about hoedt.

6.) 08 Aug 2017 17:47:49
I doubt we'll sign two CB's as we've already signed Bednarek - even if we maybe should. I'd say Hoedt would be my favourite option of the 3, although it is always good to sign English players. It seems like we maybe looking at left footed CB's? With Hoedt and Gibson both been left footed, could bring a nice balance to our team.

7.) 08 Aug 2017 17:49:05
And I completely agree that stephens is good enough to start, would like to see him progress! He seems so comfortable on the ball, surprised he's gone under the radar a bit.

8.) 08 Aug 2017 19:04:54
Hi Guys

A bit of a rant, personally sell VVD to anyone but Liverpool, if its chelsea only sell if they can get Andreas Christensen and if they can't get him put a £15/ 20 mill for Mamadou Sakho Klopp don't like him but he is one of the best center halfs left out there


9.) 08 Aug 2017 19:59:10
Sell VVD to anyone but Liverpool then try to sign a player from the very same club for way under his valuation, seems realistic.

10.) 08 Aug 2017 21:55:31
We may well of shown interest BUT there is no way in hell we are going to absolutely smash our transfer record on Ben Gibson. This transfer will not happen.

11.) 08 Aug 2017 22:44:44
Sakho is a very good player most Liverpool fans wish him and JK would just get on by hat seems impossible, I do regret how my clubs acted but in all honesty I think VVD is a Liverpool player by the end of the week and same as Coutinho going Barca. As fans we think we or the club have power, we don't. I hope my club pays what VVD is worth and I hope for the good of saints and the player you get sakho I think he's good but looks unorthodox on the balls is all, so helps you replace the lost because layer and provides a lot of money. Hope the sale goes well, hope you's do wel. No animosity between fans due to the way the owner acts and I hope the usually good relations between us and you guys continues goodluck for his season. Ps please forgive poor typing predictive text ruins my messages usually.

12.) 08 Aug 2017 23:28:16
Don't understand why we would even bother looking into Gibson at 30m you could almost get Hoedt and Yannick Vestergaard for that combined.

13.) 09 Aug 2017 01:04:20
How can any of us that say Hoedt is there favourite really know that, I hope you are not using videos on Utube as a reference. Even I could look good on there. I am sure he is a good player but we don't really know about him to go to statements like he is class etc. etc.

14.) 09 Aug 2017 11:38:49
I only say that as he seems the best value for money out of the 3, I don't think Wimmer or Gibson would be worth the £20m or £30m their clubs want respectively.

15.) 09 Aug 2017 15:39:57
I agree with that Sam but if we sell VVD for 60-70 million it might be worth buying an experienced CB who may be aging but will get us through this season whilst we are sourcing another gem. Maybe Jose Fonte might come back? He doesn't look happy at West Ham.

16.) 09 Aug 2017 15:59:39
how about you take Sakho and £30m for VVD and both clubs can move on everybody knows Klopp was out of order but this is not just down to him. We are going through the same thing with Coutinho but most of the time it is not the players it is the agent's we went through the same thing with sterling its the agents that make there money when these plays move for big money. plus you do owes us one you got over £20m out of us for lovren.

{Ed002's Note - It is not the same thing with Coutinho at all.}

17.) 09 Aug 2017 16:17:55
why is it not like Coutinho talks going on with out permission of club wages agreed so reports say. do you not think there was some sort of contact with klopp from VVD agent before the meeting took place or did he just ring him out of the blue as I said its the agents that make most out of players moving.

{Ed002's Note - I don't like having to repeatedly spell out quite how truly awful Liverpool are - absolutely in the gutter and bottom of the pile in terms of professionalism in European football. I have explained over and over again on the Liverpool page for more than a year that it was Coutinho who was courting Barcelona. The club are aware of what Coutinho told three international team mates last season an. At the end of October his representative visited Barcelona to make clear that the player is open to a move there during 2017 and this re-enforces the comment from an international colleague that Coutinho has got Neymar to speak to Barcelona about him as well.

It is embarrassing to see the Liverpool fans constantly try and blame others and say other clubs are as bad as Liverpool - it is untrue. Klopp is to blame. Klopp has caused van Dijk to become damaged goods - it is entirely unprofessional and the owners and the board have had to issue a humilaiating apology to Southampton. Now I am seeing Liverpool supporters trolling the Southampton page.}

18.) 09 Aug 2017 18:39:14
Well said Ed, ( again) these so called Liverpool supporters seem disillusioned with the belief that they are the only club worth joining or supporting in the PL and the rules don't apply to them. I can only assume that clown Klopp has a lot to do with this belief. He is almost like some cult spiritual leader who seems to convince all his followers that he knows best no matter what and will lead them to the promised land. How silly it looks to the non believers living in the real world. I can't believe though that not one of the pundits and media are putting the problem at Liverpool's door with Klopp being the only one allowed to answer it. They actually believe we are being unfair to VVD. Crazy.



20 Jul 2017 21:16:40
Rumours are saying that we are liked with a loan move for patrick roberts. Not to sure about him personally. What does anyone else think?

saint bod

1.) 21 Jul 2017 08:31:39
Seems like a good signing, although I'd be concerned about just signing him on a loan with no option to buy. Good player though and fits out usual mould of signing.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 21:03:36
If we are in for Roberts, then why the Hell didn't we go for Jacob Murphy now of Newcastle? A much better prospect if you ask me.



30 Jan 2017 19:21:41
Gabbiadini, serdar tasci and mouez hassen are all set to have their medicals

saint bod

1.) 30 Jan 2017 20:43:33
Where have you heard about the other two players?

2.) 30 Jan 2017 20:53:00
Great news. Unusual to see such activity in Jan. Welll done. Still hearing reports on Sakho though desperate to leave Liverpool for us. Any chance Eds? Why would Liverpool let him rot?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation.}

3.) 30 Jan 2017 21:38:40
You have and many thanks Ed. Just wondered if s Liverpool might be softening as the window is about to close! Perhaps not then.

{Ed002's Note - Two of the three clubs will need to shift their position.}

4.) 30 Jan 2017 23:37:54
Sakho seems more likely to go Palace now.



24 Jan 2017 17:31:14
apparently saints have mad a 16 million bid for Manolo Gabbiadini.

saint bod

1.) 24 Jan 2017 17:40:18
All I have seen is £13mil and napoli want 17-18mil

2.) 24 Jan 2017 18:26:09
No doubt someone will bid more and we'll lose out.

3.) 24 Jan 2017 19:15:55
Saints need to get real if they really want another striker who's not consistent and pay up

4.) 24 Jan 2017 19:40:27
Supposedly we've offered a take it or leave it bid.

5.) 24 Jan 2017 21:00:07
Apparently were going to chase Mariano Diaz if they don't accept this or were just using this as a threat if they don't

6.) 24 Jan 2017 23:25:34
After watching. well prefer Mariano and don't think there is much threat of a trade off - two totally different styles of which I think Mariano would better suit (a lot more in locker) .

7.) 25 Jan 2017 13:47:57
I actually prefer the look of Mariano over Gabbiadini. I think Mariano could offer us more of an all round game as well as knowing where the net is



23 Jan 2017 16:30:54
another random bloke who we are linked with. Luka Milivojevic from olimpiacos. any truth in this eds?

saint bod

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of Southampton interest but Hull are keen and of course have an advantage in the manager.}

1.) 23 Jan 2017 17:14:43
Sims signed extension I like the look of him, very direct

2.) 24 Jan 2017 16:00:17
@Stmarks, I agree his approach play is very direct. He doesn't appear intimidated by playing in the premier league. Seems like a very clever player, he's quite skillful and able to take on defenders. Just needs more experience, looks like a top player though. One of the best things about this season has been the introduction to Stephens/ McQueen and Sims.

Don't know what anyone else thinks but I have been watching brahim diaz recently and he is insane. I think he could be a good potential loanee to saints. What are any one else's thoughts?

saint bod



10 Jul 2017 19:28:56
To be fair I don't think we will be getting gylfi because swansea have just slapped a 50 m price tag on him.

saint bod



12 May 2017 21:53:10
Just a small thought. One player that I would like to see saints approach is sisto from celt vigo. Dunno how many of you watched man u against celta, but sisto played jolly well, and as a player whom isn't really spoken about much you could get a good price on him. I think he would be a good asset to the team.
Any other thoughts?

saint bod

1.) 15 May 2017 18:38:06
I watched that game. and there was only one team on the pitch playing football. Sisto was outstanding. bit was that because Utd were absolutely awful?

2.) 15 May 2017 23:03:11
I did watch it, he was excellent! I think we may have been linked before he moved there but possibly paper talk. I agree he'd be a very good signing.

3.) 16 May 2017 09:01:52
we should of got him from Midtjylland. Looked like a good player when we played against and also v Utd. Bargain for the reported £5m.



29 Jan 2017 06:49:59
Does someone want to get claude puel on this blog? He might do something about signing some new players. I could gibe him a few ideas!

saint bod

1.) 29 Jan 2017 14:49:44
He doesn't sign the players.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 18:25:54
Yeah but he would have a say

3.) 29 Jan 2017 23:02:51
Interesting possibilities



24 Jan 2017 19:43:07
Puel has promised to play an attacking style against liverpool. this could become very interesting!

I know he is a good defender but I don't see why liverpool and anyone else for that matter are desperate for him! There are plenty other brilliant centre backs out there.

If he needs to go anywhere it should be man city. Pep is a better coach than klopp.

You only need to check out boufal's best career goals to prove that he is one awesome footballer. I would rather be more concerned about forster rather than tadic and boufal.

We don't exactly want to be negative but you can't take away the fact the he is having a poor season and it is costing us points. You need to compare him with other keepers in the league such as jordan pickford, or tom heaton who have a better save percentage and a worse defence. If he is going to get good again he has got to buck up his ideas fast!

i agree with these posts aprt from the fact that I think that they should keep vvd this season and sell him for even more next season. if he does stay this season I reckon he will put in a decent effort for the club because even if he wants to leave, he won't want to be sat on the bench all season. if he stays and gets back in the squad I hope the rest of the fans will accept him otherwise he is more likely to play crap this season, and therefore we may not be able to sell him for as much as we would have been able to this season.

get me?

I reckon saints will get the last laugh when vvd does a rickie lambert and signs a six year deal with eastleigh.

Same here sam. Les reed's statement on him was what I was hoping mp to be. An attacking style and promotes youth.
Roll on epl 2017/ 18!
Can we do another leicester?

Read on a website that a reason for tuchel to come would be because it is nearly in every manager's interest to manage in the prem. Therefore tuchel wouldn't mind coming even though saints is so much smaller than dortmund.
