Saints will use saterdays friendly with ajax to hopefully get a look at ajax's young dutch u21 centre back ricardo van Rhijn


Believable6 Unbelievable5

Just wondering what peoples views are on this new GK i haven't rly heard of him

Agree2 Disagree2

The gk did really well against evian in the last friendly. looks good

Agree4 Disagree1

He hardly touched the ball

Agree1 Disagree1

He came on in the second half and didn't have to make a save

Agree1 Disagree0

Re the initial post - maybe, but it is a bit late for 'looks', not just for us but the European Season kicks off in 2 weeks time and I cant see clubs wanting to sell their better players.... We need offers on the table this week I feel.

Agree0 Disagree2

He didnt have a save to make, lol. So dont know yet maybe were find out against ajax

Agree0 Disagree0

The signing of Gazzaniga (GK) has been on the cards for a very very long time, long before Buttland.
Alot of people dont know much of him, but he will, given playing time, be one of the best. A top class stopper.

Agree1 Disagree0

Does anyone know if we r still looking at GK as this new keeper is not proven in the prem

Agree0 Disagree2

I was at the Evian match. He had a nervy start with a couple of dodgy clearances, but then made one good catch when under reasonable pressure. Was well out of position watching a shot fly just past his right hand post. Looks a decent prospect but difficult to say if 1st team material just yet.

Agree2 Disagree1

Yes were still lokking for a new keeper. NA has said himself that we need a 3rd keeper as forcast has joined gillingham - chris

Agree4 Disagree0

The above post makes no sense, why would we get rid of a 3rd choice keeper to the Gills just to sign a 3rd choice keeper from the Gills.
Gazzaniga isnt first choice right now but he is a big part of the future plans. Not 1st choice right now but he has not come to saints to be 3rd.

Agree1 Disagree0

We would get another 3rd choice as we need another and tommy fivepast is terrible and needs to go. No other premier league clubs have just 2 goalkeepers and Adkins has said himself that they are getting another hopefully

Saints interest in Lens has cooled and will turn their attention to Moses from Wigan


Believable6 Unbelievable16

Its true!

Agree5 Disagree8

This is a lie! Saints have no interest in Moses. We are looking at Lens and shipping out Puncheon as soon as we can. They have almost agreed fee for Lens, and should be confirmed in the next 4 to 5 days. Also still looking at the TM and Feeny from Velmore.

Andy K ;-)

Agree5 Disagree2

1. he costs more then lens ...2. if he does leave wigan it will be chelsea ..3. where the HELL did you hear this rubbish ?

Agree4 Disagree3

Dont see this happening at all! Chels are in for him at 10M. I'd rather believe the post below that Lens is agreed - we need an explosive player like him...

Agree3 Disagree3

Moses would cost more, and we are not Chelski, so he isn't coming here. You plonker!

Agree3 Disagree3

Wigan want 10m for him, this wont happen at all

Agree5 Disagree3

Who are "TM and Feeny from Velmore"?

Agree3 Disagree1

We are all aware of Saints looking for a marquee signing and this is it! What great headlines the Echo could come up with.

I haven't heard much in regards to the Dann deal, think we should be aiming for better. All I have heard are initials AK being talked about behind the scenes.


Agree3 Disagree1

Think puncheon will stay at saints he is having a blinding pre season and if we were going to sell him he wouldn't have fetured for us

Agree5 Disagree2

I too have heard this 'AK' rumour banding around although have no idea who he is tbh. I could see Dann signing as has got prem experience but would be very suprised if Feeney from Velmore jumped on board the Saints bus. I see wages being a big issue

Agree1 Disagree0

Puncheon has been fighting back pre season he goin no where

Agree2 Disagree2

AK is andy karroll lol

Agree3 Disagree2

Surely couldn't be Alexander Kolarov? Would be a cracking signing if true though, but linked around europe.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think Moses will be a big statement and I don't see that transfer happening for many reasons.

Agree2 Disagree0

reports are coming that saints have agreed a fee with PSV for Jermaine "wright" Lens. the fee belived to be about 6.5m. personal terms now need agreeing N.A wants him in place for Saturdays game against Ajax. Unconfirmed reports that saints may take M.Owen on a season pay as you play deal to cover injuries etc but persnally i cant see going through if Lens signs.

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Where are these reports?

Agree3 Disagree1

I was with you, then you mentioned owen .... Your credibility may as well have sky dived from the Burj Khalifa tbh. No wonder you didn't leave your name.


Agree4 Disagree2

I do totally agree that i metioned OWEN i hope this dosnt happen. I know 1 of Owens friends who used to to care of him when he played in Spain he said Owen hasnt got many options for premiership football but 2 clubs were metioned by him 1 being saints on a possible pay as you play deal, my honest opinion is this wont happen as we are building a young team and Owen is too old now. The reports came from a friend who lives in Eindhovan who is close to both Eindhovan teams with media and confirms we went back with new bid that was accepted also postings have been on the ugly inside.

Agree0 Disagree2

Don't get me wrong. I agree about the Lens deal and think that 6.5 would be good value, better value than jrod actually! Just can't see owen coming here. Although he may contribute valuable experience.


Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe wont come but i want him because he brings prem experince which we havent got much of good in the dresing room and i think he can still bang in the goals just keeping him fit

Agree0 Disagree0
